Sunshine Writing challenge

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey. You’ll never know dear, how much I loved you…Why’d you take my sunshine away.

Thanks for the laughs!

I don’t know how many of you keep with Australian news, over the past week or so there are have been some people who are completely outraged that the QLD government have decided to take the gender off of their drivers licences. Now I love Queensland, it’s a gorgeous place and I was expecting these kind of reactions. The other things a lot of other states in Australia don’t have their genders. Also QLD had already started taking off genders a couple of years ago with new drivers.

However, there was one reaction that has me honestly cracking up. Someone asked why having genders on a drivers licence was SO important anyway, what use is it? There was one guy who said that the LGBTQ community and lefties were trying to take away their masculinity and make us all the same…Then I couldn’t stop with the images of men going around shoving their drivers licences in people’s face going “I AM A MAN”…I haven’t been able to stop laughing since.

What about having both?!

This post was inspired by an article that I read recently about a tv show here called “The Project”. There sort of a news program, there more like the current affair show that came on after the new, but they’re a little more relaxed. Their quote is “News delivered differently”.

Anyways, I’m not here to write about that program. This post was inspired by a particular section that they were talking about “Carrie Bickmore becomes emotional over body image issues” . They were talking about having positive/negative body issues. Carrie became emotional because she feels like she wants to help her daughter (two years old) have a positive image of her body, but feels like it’s getting out of control.

My issue with it, is that it is beyond fantastic to have a good body and healthy image of yourself. However, I feel the first step to get a good and positive body image is to get yourself a good and positive mind.

At the end of the day you can’t hold onto a lot of things regarding your body, if your mind isn’t thinking positively either. We’re human after all, we will have days when we don’t feel good about ourselves and it’s those moments where our minds can really play with us. Our minds playing up can have a lot of impacts on our body and how we view ourselves.

So how about teaching our daughters and young girls to feel settled within their minds first and then our bodies will probably “fall into line” so to speak.

Personally, when my mind is not okay, I don’t honestly care what I look like.

So I read this post at: https://vrushali21.wordpress.com/2016/01/21/tmi-tag/comment-page-1/#comment-1109 Shared by the very lovely Vrushali21 and I thought “why not” I’m not really sure what and how much you all know, so here’s some more about me =P

One on each ear.

As mentioned above my favourite is probably Reign, but the other that I just love is Homicide Hunter, it has to be one of my favourites of all time.

“Official” fears are Octopuses, those things are freaky creepy and are way too smart!

Dreams…

Dreams are pretty magical things are they not? Well…sometimes they can be your worst nightmare. You can be in such an amazingly awesome place and then one night you’ll have a horrible dream or nightmare and it affects you for the whole day.

Not every thing Magical in this world is a good kind of Magic. There are bad witches, bad wizards, bad fairies and there are definitely bad dreams…or also known as “Nightmares”. As much as nightmares are truly horrible, they are also an essential part of dreaming. Sometimes (like the one I had last night) they can make you unaware of feelings or situations that you either don’t want to deal with or hadn’t realised that you need to deal with.

If you are like me, my dreams, whether they are good or bad, they tend to be really lucid. A lucid dream is where you can feel, touch and taste everything. It feels SO real that sometimes, in the first couple of minutes after you wake up you still think that it’s happening. I can’t even begin too tell you how many times I have woken up from dreams and they have stayed with me for days after. I even had a dream diary at one stage that I still have and read from time to time…I should really start one again…
