Just like human beings, it’s okay for you to love your country. There’s nothing wrong with it, most people do love their country.
It becomes a problem, just like with human beings, when you want to ignore how not “perfect” your country is. Nobody and no country is perfect. You can make pretty close to “perfect” though, if you actually encourage to fix what’s wrong.
“The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one.” You certainly can’t solve a problem by pretending there isn’t one. Nor can you find a resolution by making excuses. First you must admit there is a problem. Then you can explore what the causes areDaniel “The Newsroom
Day 28 … A song by a artist whose voice you love
I just love all of their voices
Celtic Woman – Tir na nOg ft Oonagh
Day 29 … A song you remember from your childhood
I feel if you didn’t listen to this man, and you’re Australian … Did you even have a childhood?
Peter Combe – Newspaper Mama … 1988
Day 30 … A song that reminds you of yourself.
The one and only…
Enya – Wild Child
Despite my next post, I actually really do love myself a lot … Just other people do not, lol…Like they might love me, but it is REALLY obvious who they really love more. Whose opinion they think is more important of myself is more important than the opinion of myself. I wouldn’t be surprised why people think I’d have a low self-esteem. I actually really don’t, but I am also EXTREMELY AWARE HOW OTHERS VIEW ME. I don’t want to be prideful. But I do love myself, god knows someone has too!
I am proof that despite that knowing you are no one’s favourite, knowing that your life is being directed by people who really don’t like you or respect you or your partner…Since you were 12…You can still be a kind people to others. You can still love yourself.
I just felt really odd, posting a song the day after I posted 5 for one challenge, and then it didn’t feel right on ANZAC Day.
Day 24 – A song by a band that you wished were still together
I was oohhhing and arrring about this one. However, whenever there songs come on the radio, I know the words and all the dance moves. So…fight me! Also three of them are coming out here later in the year. I am SO getting tickets, even if my favourite isn’t coming, lol
Day 25 – A song you like by a artist no longer living
Isn’t the world a sadder place for having lost him. Also kind of ironic since it gets dark here now at 6pm. Yes, the Beatles sing it, but it’s George’s song!
George Harrison – Here comes the Sun
Day 26 – A song that makes you want to fall in love
So I am already in love, however! I want into my YouTube playlist of what I named “Someone or Something” It reminds me of someone … or … something … haha. What it also has though is a lot of lovey dovey songs, that I love listening to whenever I’m falling in love =D Also though I know what movie this belongs too…But try not to judge, I love the song, not the movie, lol
Love Me Like You Do – Song by Ellie Goulding, Video from the movie “50 Shades of Grey”.
A lot of the love songs I really love, are from movies I really dislike, haha.
When was the last time you just looked out?
You sat on the grass/ground/floor and looked up?
When was the last time you looked up into clouds to see what shapes they made.?
When was the last time you read that favourite childhood story?
When was the last time you literally stopped to smell a flower?
When was the last time you stopped and listened to the birds?
Sat and looked as the sun sets into a ocean?
When was your last good laugh?
When was the last time you smiled about yourself, to yourself.
If you have to really think about it, then it’s been too long!
TERFs are completely and utterly nuts and insane.
I just got a violation for saying you’re either trans or cis, which is a fact. I’m not even sure how it’s hateful. While Rowling is allowed to sell and advertise actual anti-trans merchandise? It’s getting weird out there folks!
I am not shocked by this article and what is written. I am shocked though, that some one allowed this be published, in the UK!. After all it puts their precious delicate white Queen TERF Rose, in a bad light.
Oh, and in the world of the Land Down Under. Facebook restricts Australians from sharing or viewing news content while Google strikes deal with News Corp.
#FacebookAustralia, you will probably only get this if you’re Australian.
You should all follow Katy! ❤ She is such a wonder to the trans community, and I always love her eye make up, haha. And NOW, she has more subscribers than Glinner! Whose a straight cis man, who harasses women, lesbian and straight, if you are a trans ally. He also created “The I.T. Crowd” and I think some others. He has been banned from nearly every single social media platform.
So, please subscribed to Katy’s YouTube ❤ She is a beautiful person, and takes a lot of heat from TERFs and GCS, including other trans people, who suck up to TERFs and GCs. She does a LOT of videos about what she puts up with, and gets on a daily basis, based in the UK. It’s a lot! But she handles it SO well!
Love Wins, even in Art!
This post is about loving others.
I am going to start off with a tweet and a did you know…
Did you know, that Abigail Thorns coming out tweet has more likes that JKRowlings transphobic tweet.
Love Trumps Hate
This is where I write about what I am now going to write about.
I get that a lot of people have been hurt and shocked by Rowling, I’m not even a huge HP fan, and even I was shocked.
What I don’t get, is why people keep insisting on buying her stuff.
You hit bigots in the pocket, not continually buying their stuff.
Now I know she’s a got a HP tv show coming out. People are “outraged”, but how many will actually watch it. Just don’t watch it, make them regret it.
We have a show in Australia, on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) called Insiders, every year the host is the most popular host on the ABC. Every year, people ask “why”, because no one likes him. Yet, every week, the same people who don’t like him, are watching the show.
YOU ARE NOT BEING MONITORED WHETHER OR NOT YOU LIKE THE SHOW. YOU ARE ONLY BEING MONITORED THAT YOU’RE WATCHING IT!
Left and Right both do this by the way.
Every week everyone complains about David Speer hosting Insiders, and every next week, they’ll watch it again.
Last year, individual Harry Potter books made the top list and number one’s of Christmas lists. Giving TERFs and GCs ammunition against the trans community again. Don’t feel to bad, trans people who don’t like Rowling, bought them too. Something about new editions, with new covers.
So basically, she brought out new stuff.
.., STUFF …
Magic doesn’t come from “stuff”, but from YOU. Take what you want from HP, but that’s how I took HP. It’s you, it’s always been you!
Next bit in capitals.
YOU ARE THE MAGIC, THE MAGIC IS YOU … YOU DON’T NEED STUFF TO MAKE YOU MAGICAL
Fight back against Lady Voldemort by not buying her stuff! SHOW HER, THE MAGIC IS YOU, YOU DON’T NEED HER MAGIC!
Of course, just before the “day of love”. Who better to write about then the God of Love.
Now there are two different versions of Cupid. In Roman mythology, his name is Cupid and in Greek Mythology his name is Eros. Cupid is most definitely the well more known of the two though, especially in the Western world.
Cupid is the son of the God, Mercury (the winged messenger of the Gods) and Venus. He often appeared as a winged infant carrying a bow and a quiver of arrows whose wounds inspired love or passion in his every victim. It’s interesting to see that both Cupid and his Mother, Venus, are the two most well known Gods from Roman Mythology, when we are so familiar with the Greek Gods and Goddesses. I wonder, why those two?
Eros, is the son of Aphrodite and Ares. Whether or not Aphrodite was actually married to the God Hephaestus, is still up for debate. In some legends, she’s an unmarried escort to Ares and Hephaestus has another wife, some legends it’s the other way around. In the Theogony of Hesiod (fl. 700 BCE), Eros was a primeval god, son of Chaos, the original primeval emptiness of the universe.
According to Hesiod, four primary divine beings first came into existence: the Gap (Chaos), Earth (Gaea), the Abyss (Tartarus), and Love (Eros).
Both Cupid and Eros, were represented by winged youths.
Again, though, the Ancient Eastern people also have their own “Cupid and Eros”.
Kama, (Sanskrit: “Love,” “Desire,” “Pleasure”) in the mythology of India, the god of erotic love and pleasure. As with both Cupid and Eros, in later periods he is depicted as a handsome youth, attended by heavenly nymphs, who shoots love-producing flower-arrows. His bow is of sugarcane, his bowstring a row of bees. Once directed by the other gods to arouse Shiva’s passion for Parvati, he disturbed the God’s meditation on a mountaintop. Enraged, Shiva burned him to ashes with the fire of his third eye.
It’s interesting to me, that even though they are from different Worlds, it’s amazing how very similar each cultures Gods and Goddesses are.
