Love it or leave it

I’m just letting you know that if you walk in and I see you with a t-shirt saying “If you don’t love it, leave it” I am probably going to instantly dislike you. As I did when a student walked in and was wearing a t-shirt with that saying, with the Australian flag all over it. I have never understood that mind set.

It is absolutely possible to love something or someone and realise they have imperfections. It is possible to love something or someone and want better for them. I love Australia, but it’s definitely (like a lot of countries lately) got flaws. If you don’t like people saying “We can do better” than you leave.

If your family, friends and/or relationships are not perfect, do you just walk away? Of course not, you help them. It’s a ridiculous notion that we all can’t improve in some way…Except for animals, they are pretty perfect!

When the Westboro Baptist Church a known hate group protested a transgender child at Brookwood Elementary in Leawood, KS Wednesday, September 11, 2019, the response to this abhorrent act on of all days 9/11, became the real news.

Some of these “Godly” people need to remember that God is Love, not Hate

Love…

…It’s never seems just a simple thing, does it?

This is going to seem like a weird post for a magical Monday post, especially when it may not seem so “Magical” of a post.

I think it’s kind of sweet when Trump supporters genuinely believe that Trump loves his country. I don’t though, but only for one reason. This is going to sound mean and I genuinely don’t mean to sound that way. I just don’t think Trump knows how to Love.

Too me this was proven with one comment:

Trump

Then I found out recently he called his other daughter Tiffany “fat”. What kind of father says that about their own daughter? I don’t care if it’s true or not. A girls first introduction to be treating well, is her father. If there’s no father, then a father figure.

Do you hate?

I got asked an interesting question the other day and it did make me think. I was told “I could never see you hating someone, have you ever actually hated someone”.

I don’t think I have.

Don’t get me wrong, on the spot, I definitely have hated people in the moment. I definitely hate what a lot of politicians have done, and I definitely hate what that has then perpetrated.

In my own little circle of life though, I don’t think that I have hated anyone.

I think it takes a lot for me to hate. Hate is such a powerful notion to myself.

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.

Start with Yourself – Nurt Thurs

Nurture Thursday – Start with Yourself

  • If you need a good cry, you have that good cry.
  • If you need to tell somehow you feel and you don’t know how, write them a letter.
  • Sometimes even half an hour of doing what you want can make a huge difference.
  • Although completely boring to some, eating healthy can actually make you feel good. Especially if you have been doing nothing but eating badly.
  • Start each day repeatedly telling yourself something very positive.

self love

Nurt Thur – LOVE YOURSELF

Nurt Thur – LOVE Yourself

I have always felt like the below quote, should have stopped after. “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love”.

moulin rouge

The best thing I think, I personally have felt with life, is to truly learn how to love. Love everything, love yourself, love the planet, love your soul, love what you have in your life at every moment. Then to be loved in return (truly loved) is just the cherry on the pie…

So it’s been kind of a bad day

A few years ago Australia voted for #lovewins. Where Australia voted to legalise lgbtq marriage. Love Wins is what people used when it was voted Yes…Australia and Love wins that day.

Over night while you’ve all been sleeping, NSW voted, for their state elections. Now we are having a federal election in May, where we vote for a new prime minister. However, over night NSW decided to stick with it’s conservative. It’s upset a lot of people because they just assume (like I’m sure a lot of you all do) NSW (aka Sydney) is overly progressive…NSW is NOT a progressive state and I realised this when we had the #lovewins vote (which is why I brought it up).

NSW, although did vote “Yes” They also only JUST voted Yes in NSW. NSW had the lowest voters for Yes out of the whole country. NSW have the biggest parades, the biggest parties, they have the Mardi Gras but that means nothing when your also the state with the most rich, “scared” and white people in the country.

The day after the Christchurch/New Zealand mass shootings. For some unknown reason, the Sydney television AND radio shows had members from One Nation on. For those who don’t know, One Nation is probably our racist “party”. One member decided to put in a policy to say “It’s okay to be white”. The leader of One Nation came dressed in a Burqa, and was subsequently laughed at. You might have heard of #eggboy? A young kid egged a One Nation senator, because the senator basically said that the Muslim people had it coming. Which is why eggboy is such a hero in Australia. Now one of them has gained a seat.

I think it’s very safe to say now that NSW is not a progressive state. You’d think it would be though? Clearly not ALL NSW though,lol
