I think you should all head over to the Kindness Blog, they are a great Blog! They recently made a post (the oirignal source was from Reddit):
“Source: What issue IS black and white to you? (25 Answers to That Question)”
Reddit – What issue is Black and White to you?
My readers, what issue is Black and White to you?
My Black and Issue is this and you will see at the bottom of this page one of those reasons why:
“If an animal is classified as “endangered” or at the rate it’s being killed at is potentially becoming endangered it should automatically be illegal to hunt and kill them! No matter where it’s ‘legal’ to do so, it should just automatically be illegal everywhere! To me that makes sense,lol. That’s my black and white issue =D”
Sorry to start the week on such a depressing note, but it’s my first day off from work and schoolwork and I’ve been doing nothing but reading article after article…The way people think these days!
Started off the day with a good friend telling me how she complained to her internet provider for not letting her know that there was going to be a better deal in a weeks time, so she could get locked into that contract, instead of the one she’s in now. The reason this bugged me was because the sales rep she dealt with wouldn’t have known about the deal that was going to be coming out the next week (can you imagine the people they would have gotten a new contract with the day before?) Now I didn’t understand this because they didn’t complain about the bill they were charged for (they didn’t even dispute it, they paid for it) that they shouldn’t have been, or the free extra gigabytes that they didn’t end up getting. They complained about something that the company would have had no control over?
Then I found out that my cousins ex (who I never really like any ways) is getting remarried, which is perfectly fine, but his getting his children from his marriage with my cousin to “give away” his new wife? Even though my nephew has already said he feels uncomfortable with it?
Don’t even get me started on women body-shaming each other. I just got into a whole argument on Facebook with someone who thinks certain beauty types are not a “standard” for beauty. So I asked the “expert” what the standard for beauty is then?lol
Also all I am going to say is…Indiana…lol
I don’t understand how people think sometimes, some of these seem just really obvious to me,lol.
It is no secret fact that the end of a year, any year, it makes people reflect and look back at the year and decide what they wish to improve on for the new year coming.
Last year what I did was instead of making resolutions for the year coming, I made a list of what I was going to leave behind in the past year. I actually found this was really a lot better than making promises into the future. Mainly because we don’t know what the future holds for us. So instead of promising myself that I would “lose weight” I worked on writing less emo-type posts.
I found that by making promises to myself of what I’m leaving behind, I could concentrate on that. I could work on myself and then I was able to work on things that were thrown at me in my future, things that I didn’t see coming. I have to say that personally it did work for me, so I shall be doing that again. Instead of starting new problems, I decided to work on old issues of mine so that I could leave them behind.
Here are a couple of things that I will be leaving behind in 2015:
- Less talking about my ex’s, so I can concentrate on my new partner
- Being unproductive and be more proactive on finding a job IN a Library, rather than just having a job.
- MORE motivation for meditation!
What are your “tricks” for the New Year? Do you make resolutions, or do you do something else instead, make a goal for the new year?
