When did this start happening?

I am all for Women’s Rights, but I’ve noticed something over the last couple of years.

What is it with grown women lately, causing harm and spreading misinformation, just to turn around and play “victim”?

I know I go on a lot about Rowling a lot, but she isn’t the only women doing those sorts of things.

We have a female journalist here in Australia, who is clearly biased towards one particular political party, at the tax payers expense. Most of the time she’s called out on it, she just blocks those people. Then turns around on our taxpayer national news front to say how much she’s being “bullied” on Twitter. She calls it misogny (which it isn’t) but she also fails to mention that the male journalists are being called out on it too.

This is becoming a re-occurring theme with women. Women who are being really horrible, and obviously bias. Want to them turn around and play “victim”.

There’s always been women like this, but it seems to be really bad in the last year or so.

As an outsider, this is what I think America needs

A better education system.

I was horrified people, HORRIFED people. When I witnessed a conversation on Facebook.

I went on to write a post, that only people who knew would know. When I saw the conversation.

Someone asked another person “Are you saying that you would have no problem with a Doctor opening you up without a mask on”. Then the conversation got silly, because they started to talk about Walmart and how Doctors wouldn’t open you up there.

However, it went on and this MOTHER OF CHILDREN said and I quote “Are you saying that I would be less at risk from a deadly infection, if a Doctor opened me up (at Walmart), if they slapped a mask on their face”.

For some reason, people had either given up with this person, or just didn’t come back to Facebook yet. So I replied and “Yes”.

Also though, my partner made a good point that I then pointed out too them. This mother has young children, so I asked her “Are you teaching your children to cover there mouths when they sneeze? Doesn’t matter if it’s with their hands or their elbows. Are you teaching them to cover their mouth when they sneeze?”.

America doesn’t need guns, doesn’t need prayers, doesn’t even really need a President…No country really NEEDS one person governing it. What every country needs in a good education and America is in DESPERATE need of it. I think that if the US had good education, everything else would just fall into place. INCLUDING GOOD HEALTH PRACTICES.

Living Longer

So this is not a post about HOW to live longer. I think that’s pretty well covered, but I was talking to my mum about my Gran’s current situation. At the beginning of the year, it was discovered that she had, in fact, a mini stroke. Now we’ve known something has been off with her for a little while. It’s always good though to have a reason.

What my mum and I were talking about though is how her grandparents went, and is it really so great being able to live longer these days? Yes, lives may have been shorter, but usually only by a few years, and when they went, they want. Both her grandparents just dropped one day.

Whereas now, they probably could have lived, but at what quality of life? Both my great grandparents, like their daughter (my Gran) had really extraordinary minds. Its not like now with my Gran, we watch as her and her amazing mind slowly drift away =/

Sorry for the morbidity.

It has made me think though, what’s the point of a long life, if there’s no quality too it. We shouldn’t be looking at JUST how to live longer, but also how to have a longer QUALITY of life.

Nurture Thursday – Letting Things Go

Nurt Thurs – Letting things go

How hard is it in 2020, to let things go?! My mum and I were just talking last night, that we don’t understand that hate the year has brought. It’s all been over the top and over aggressive. The main thing is, the hate, has been completely unnecessary.

You MUST find a way though, to be able to every now and then “let go”. It will do you mental and in turn, physical world of good. You can’t spend the whole time, going “Woe is me”. You need to let go and give yourself permission to relax, to turn off your brain. Or do something fun with your brain. Even if it’s only for a hour. Like today, I sat down and wrote out ALL my pen pal letters, all ready for posting tomorrow! I am so finally happy with them!

Share Your World – Memorial Style

Share Your World – Memorial Style

Questions:

Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist?  I would say that I’m an optimist, but these last couple of years have slowly been testing me.


Can War ever be just? I think that sometimes it can be, but I don’t think it is if you just want a “War”. I honestly think Trump would love it if there was a War that he started. You take a look at WWI and WWII, they always start over really dumb reasons, but they needed to be fought. The Allies couldn’t just sit back and do nothing. Well I say that and then remember how long it took for America to join in the Wars…Hmmm….


Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them? I try to do what I can really. There’s obviously only certain things I can do and can only go so far.


Are you health conscious?  At the moment I definitely am! I have high cholesterol and since the rest of my family have it too. My doctor wants me to change my lifestyle for the next couple of months and see if I can lower it that way.


Gratitude, Thankfulness, Wonder, Awe and Joy!   

This is the space where you share, if you’d like to, something that falls into those categories.


I don’t know how to answer that this week. It feels rude of me to say, but a lot of people were sick at work this week, but that has meant that I got work. Of course it’s been all the nice people, who I actually working with too though, but I think they get it.

Happy Birthday too me?

So I’m not exactly 100% sure if this is actually Happy Birthday or Happy =( Birthday…My cholesterol is a funny thing. I think genetically both on my Mums and my Dads side they have it. A couple of months ago I go my cholesterol checked, then I thought I’d get it rechecked because it was a fasting test. An hour before I did the test, I had a cup of tea. So my Doctor and I decided it’d be best to have a redo. It went up! I wish I had stuck with the previous results!lol…The tests were only a couple of weeks apart.

Today, one day after my birthday, I am off to see a dietitian and a exercisiologist. Instead of hoping on the drugs straight away,lol

I’m actually kind of excited, because I do feel like I need a change in my lifestyle. About 3 years ago now I developed sciatica and it was bad. I put on weight and got lazy. The doctors would give me pain medication, and it’d take the pain away, but not the sciatica. I used to be able to walk really fast (I used to do Ballet) can’t anymore. I used to love snacking on fruit and vegetables…Now I snack on chips and biscuits…Almost like an addiction I’d say.

 

Mental Health vs Social Media

As it gets closer to Christmas, for some this time of year is just SO hard. Now I want to start off this next bit being completely honest. I don’t like Justin Bieber or Hailey Baldwin. I think separately I’ve never really liked them and together I like them even less. The reason I bring them up though is because Hailey Baldwin was complaining about how bad social media is for mental health with all the nasty comments she receives.

Why has anyone said it was good for mental health?

First, as above, duh. Social media especially when you are not nice people to begin with are not going to be nice to to you. Selena Gomez could tell you that one. There’s a difference between Hailey and Selena though. Every now and then Selena will actually come off of social media. It is not for complete random strangers to take care of your mental health. It’s YOUR responsibility. Reality is, there are always going to be nasty people. That is reality, put yourself first. As someone who is not a celebrity, there is no need for a celebrity to actually to even allow people to comment. They don’t make money from the comments, they make money from advertising a product. Since Baldwin does not make her own products that she advertise, all she needs to make sure is that people can link to the products page and let them deal with it.

Our mental health is our responsibility, otherwise you end up like Michael Jackson, Prince, my ex-friends. You end up relying on others for YOUR happiness and for your safety.

Headspace/World Mental Health Day

I just wanted to start off this Blog with a “I hope that this Blog Post, finds you well”

Moving Pictures Hello GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

I’ll start off with writing a little about the organisation “HeadSpace” Now HeadSpace is really dedicated to young people between the ages of 12 – 25, in Australia (I don’t know why they are always so specific,lol). Although I am sure it is perfectly alright for anybody of any age to go and have a look at them.

I don’t want to have this blog post trigger anyone. I want this to be a “safe post today”. Let’s write about getting help for one another.

What is the one thing you find helps you during an episode?

I hadn’t a panic attack for nearly and then a couple of weeks ago I did, but I managed to calm myself down before it became full blown and I needed the…as I call them…the big stuff! The pills that help you sleep, or they make you really drowsy. I have an app on my phone it plays sounds and I put the earphones in an concentrate on the music.

Do natural medication works?

I find that do. It almost feels like that when you look up herbs and teas to help with anxiety. It’s like they’ve evolved with us. I don’t think they can work alone though, don’t rely on them or Western medications, unless you have something severe, by themselves.

Do you have people you can trust to go when you are having an episode? If you don’t, can my readers, suggest a place to go?

This is actually something that I want to do. I was thinking of making a space, somewhere, safe. Where people can talk and discuss, in Australian time. I have so many friends overseas who are doing this and I think it is such a beautiful idea! I’d just like to do something like this, where I don’t came in after the conversation,lol
