Over this next week, I am going to try and re-focus my mind.
Which means, over the next week I invite you … TOO MY MIND!!! Hahahaha.
It’s more, I like to write to get my thoughts out. What I thought I’d do this week though is too write here, on the blog. Not about more personal things, I’ll leave that to my journal. Just more things, how I can focus on things around the world. What I want to do is get my mind to remember the good things. The things worth fighting for.
It’s getting mentally tough out there. I need to sit and refocus. I am still blocked on Twitter, and I am so thankful. I know what I’m going to do when I get it back. I plan to really stay off of it still, but I will be making a “post”. Then I really wont be on there anymore.
I hope you enjoy the next week of posts, because a lot are about dreams and ideas I have to make the world better. Well, how I think so anyway.
Now, I want to talk about the things that made us so happy, we got sick from the happiness! lol
We’ve all been there! Well I hope so!
You know what I mean, the getting drunk from good news, or the eating all the dessert, because you’re so happy it’s just there.
Take, as an example, when “my guy” won the election over the weekend. I felt sick the whole time it was happening, that when I found out he won. I drunk, stayed up till 2am was on adrenaline, woke up the next day with a massive headache, lol
We have the big election this weekend (can you imagine what the Murdoch media is like!)
Anti-LGBT is a lot of the Murdoch media around the world. By the way, just as an semi-curious question, is there anyone you’re waiting to die? Not related at all.
Elon Musk may or may not buy Twitter.
I would like to know, apart from turning off social media, apart from the turning off the news. How do you cope when the world is pretty much, well crap.
I, probably obviously, like to read. I will just sit and read.
Now I enjoy gardening. I’ve gotten a couple of disgruntled text messages, because I went to check on the garden, ended gardening for a couple of hours, lol. Do gardening without taking your phone outside.
I play my games, so my Sims, Planet Zoo and sometimes Age of Empires.
I have so many colouring in books, lol
I guess I like to create.
Creating things makes me feel useful, if only in my own little world. I think that’s the important bit. You have to make sure you feel useful, even if it’s only for yourself, or too protect yourself.
I’m also sort of stuck right now, I want to create a home for my partner and myself, but he’s s fussy! Like he’ll say he’s okay with me making the home more of a home, but then you know, he’s clearly not. Because it is his home. He bought it, I help out with shopping and bills, but it’s legally all his. Sometimes I have to sneak things in. Or plan a good time for a “reveal”. It puts a hamper on things, lol. He buys this beautiful house, that I don’t actually like. But then he wont let me do things, so I can make it more “homey” and a house I like, lol
I used to have baths, but the bath plug broke, lol
And of course, music. Mostly Enya when I literally need to “sail away” in my own mind, lol
I see a lot of bloggers talking about the coming of Spring. Spring is my favourite weather =D I can’t blame them, but here, down under, we’re heading into the darkness that is Winter!
I actually used to really enjoy Winter, but in the last few years. I do not enjoy the darkness that Winter brings, but this year I want to change my entire mindset to Winter! There are many things to enjoy about Winter, it’s all about the mind. I think what I dislike about Winter the most is the darkness, how when you leave for the day it’s dark, when you go home, it’s dark.
But there’s nothing stopping me from bringing the light inside. I don’t mean the lights in the house.
I mean like, what’s stopping me from wearing light colours? Like your yellows, pinks, rainbows =D It’s not “stylish”, but I’m not stylish, lol
Make a plan a couple of nights to sit on the couch, watching t.v., reading a book. All snuggled up with a blanket, and I have a lot of those!
A lot of planning meals. Sometimes the weather is way to horrible to go food shopping after work. So planning in advance, means that there is less chance of needing to go to the shops.
And now that I have my Grans fake log heater. I can just put the light on that, I don’t even need to put the heating part on. Hot chocolate. A lot of the time, by Easter, it’s cold and a little chilly. We have the bigger heater on. It sounds so cozy already.
Long baths…with a hot chocolate.
Writing by fake log fire…with a hot chocolate, haha
I don’t need a new year new me, I am doing really well =D Why mess with perfection, haha
It’s so nice to be free. This is going to be long, because it’s been a long year, haha
Well, if you hadn’t been paying attention this year. I have been “standing with” and for trans rights. I have few close female friends, because I know how horrible women can be. Especially white women! Like, when you think about it. Be honest, when a woman has bullied you, harassed you, lied about you, backstabbed, wants to be an wanna be mean girls…They’re always white. It’s just a fact of life. We white women need so to do SO much better! Someone really important said “Until we are all coffee coloured, there’ll be no peace”.
I want to give a big shout to the trans community. I have learnt SO much because of you. I have learnt when to speak, when to listen, like actually listen. When to keep my emotions together. How to help without the use of social media. You have helped keep my ego in check.
Do you all realise how wonderful Science is? Like turn off the tv and go research some Science! I swear once you start understand, you understand.
Here are some facts I learnt this and some that I already know, guess ~.^
Trans women can breast feed
The trans community HAVE existed since before Christianity. Just were given different names, obviously.
Human Beings are DEFINITELY more than their reproductive organs.
JKRowling is just a terrible human being.
Being cis or trans isn’t that complicated. You are one or the other, or you are non-binary. Here’s the best thing, you get to decide for yourself! Your body, your choice!
Being a bigot will cost you everything, being kind costs nothing. It just makes sense.
Pronouns are quiet simple
Being hard, doesn’t mean you’re not soft and unkind.
Everyone needs to find something that they can honestly believe in, that comes at no harm to others or yourself.
Everyone claiming to have been cancelled, have been more vocal than ever before. Unless you die, “being cancelled” is just fake news.
There are always people who support love more than hate. It voted Trump out! Now let love vote Morrison out, but you know through voting.
A virus doesn’t care about “my body my choice” It’s a virus. It does not care about your body or your choices.
Some people just never really leave high school.
Pose should have been the new “Sex and the City”.
I have an AMAZING family!
Things I have achieved and done this year.
Started streaming, and my goodness I LOVE it! I’ve managed to find myself a really sweet and kind community. Although I am not a licensed therapist (and I remind people of this frequently). The discussions we have, have been awesome! And I’ve only had to block two people for being crude =D
I LOVE my new job! Oh my god, the people are awesome, the work…while repetitive, is so interesting! And we all get along, even though we may not always agree. I think I’ve found what I’m supposed to do…Well, you know, until I win the lottery, haha!
I did the famous Leonard family “over catering” haha.
Been blocked by a lot of transphobes, hahahaha =D
Lost the cat, but it’s really his achievement that he came back…Hahahaa
I don’t want to get to deep into this for very clear reasons. She has been the biggest inspiration in my life. I am sure that if she was of “sound mind”, she’d tell me not get upset about her situation and keep living! This is why you LIVE every single moment of the day. Grow BEYOND high school.
And remember loving yourself, IS freeing. I feel so sorry for those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. They don’t love anyone or anything. It’s true. It must be lonely.
Welcome to December 26, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC).
Today’s word is “mindful.”
Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.
Well, last week I lost the kitty. During that 5 days without him, the world kept spinning, the world didn’t stop, Christmas didn’t stop and I didn’t stop getting older because Travie was gone. There were a few people who kept apoligising too me because they thought their pain was less than mine. It kept me mindful, that everyone’s pain is valid, even when you are going through pain yourself. Christmas is a hard time of year, for a lot of people. It was a good lesson, that reMINDed me, that I am not the only here, living. It doesn’t mean don’t care of yourself and your pain, just a reMINDer, that other people have pain too.
I think one of the weirdest moments, that I have encountered this year and indeed over the last few years. Is the “Rights” mindset of wanting to “protect” themselves from the Government.
Except in most cases, the current “Leading” Governments, are ON their side.
Are not “Leftist’s” or “Liberal” or Democrats, by any stretch of the imagination.
They are all very much Right Wing Conservatives Christians. Who are very much on the Right side.
TERFs saying that they didn’t write the rule that women can’t “rape” under UK Law, that’s just the “rules”. Yet, TRA’s didn’t write the rules that trans women can go into women’s prison, and trans men can go into men’s prisons. Under UK Law, that’s just the Law.
When a women TERF says in one post “Protect all Women” and then in the next literal post, slut shame a lingerie female model, and say that’s the lingerie model is encouraging penis photos.
I have decided that this week, I am wiping my “mind”. By this, I am going to try reset my minds mindset. The way I do it though, may be a little different from how you do it though.
I like a clean out…Like, EVERYWHERE. So, when I say everywhere…I will clean out not only my closet/wardrobe. I also like to go through, say my computer, delete old and unneeded files. I sometimes have gone through Facebook, and deleted and untagged myself from photos. It is extremely therapeutic.
Last week, was International Peace Day, and I had nothing, haha. I am just so out of peace for people. But, over the weekend we had such a lovely weather. It was cold, but the Spring sun was out and not only did I get some vitamin D, but I actually had some ideas about how you can spread some peace about.
Now this is all going to be some ideas about what you can do for yourself. I find that when you are at peace, you can spread the peace to others. You can’t spread peace, if you are not at peace.
I find that even spending a day or two off of platforms like Twitter, Facebook, even Instagram, can clear out my head, a lot. Those platforms are such a mental health mess.
Do something outside, once a day. Do anything outside, for at least 10 minutes or more. Even during horrible weather. You can even just sit outside, watch the world go by.
Listen to your body.
Ask yourself questions. Would you really be okay if you left that task until tomorrow? Even if you can, would you be alright with that? If not, do it today, no matter how tedious.
When you’ve figured out how you’re doing, when you are at peace with yourself and your life. It becomes MUCH easier to help bring peace to others. Nothing bothers you as much, it’s all fine and dandy.
