If this doesn’t make you cry, I don’t know what else will!
A touching video showing a former ballet dancer afflicted with memory loss gracefully dancing as she hears the music from Tchaikovsky’s ballet Swan Lake has gone viral worldwide.
The video was recently shared by the Asociación Música para Despertar, a Spanish organization that promotes music therapy for those afflicted by memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Since then, media organizations, celebrities and individuals across the globe have shared the video of former dancer Marta C. González.
I wrote a post a couple of days ago, talking about America trying to heal. It was very pretty simple. Now take the time to heal America. But, we need to heal ourselves, first. So many people are now finding themselves coming down with more illnesses. For myself, I have no doubt that this is because suddenly our bodies are relieved. Everything we were holding back, is being unleashed.
It’s even more important NOW to take care of ourselves. No matter what, Trump is gone. Not for another two months, but he WILL be gone.
I have decided to come off of Twitter for a few days, not because of my suspension yesterday. But because I saw something that really made me angry. I am studying to be come a Health Administrator. Reading an article today where a mother stopped her 17 year old from getting surgery. Made me SO angry. Not only did this mother called what their teenager doing a “fad”, but as you find out more and more. It got worse.
The teenager doesn’t even live with the mother, and now because the mother stopped the surgery. She ALSO wants all the communication details. Remember this “mother” called it a fad, but no idea what conversations were even taking place.
What this Judge has done, especially, is too not only undermine minors and their protections. Not only giving power to a parent, that clearly does not get along with the teenager. But undermines the Privacy Laws for minors. There is a very GOOD reason why parents/guardians, cannot always just ask to get into their children’s medical records. Or make permissions for them.
I think it is quiet well known that when children/minors are preyed upon, I would even go so far to say that at least 95% of of children preyed upon. It’s by someone they KNOW. Hence, why children/minors have privacy rules/laws, especially in the medical area.
What this Judge and mother have now done. Is potentially open up for cases where abusive parents/guardians can get access to their vulnerable children. AND AREN’T THE TERFS LAPPING THAT ONE UP!
Seriously, they’re calling the move by the Judge “common sense” and win for “parents” Completley and utterly the FACT that it actually undermines ALL minors now and their privacy.
CHILDREN ARE NOT THE PROPERTY OF THEIR PARENTS
And for TERFs, to sit there and complain about how women are nothing but controlled. They seem to have NO PROBLEMS with controlling their own children.
This is what Hate in general does too you. Hate rots your damn mind lol. You look at “people” like Trump supporters the whole Trump Crime Family, Folau, Transphobia Their comments always make sane people go “Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa”? lol
Literally everything on that list above, women CAN have. Women CAN have flat chests people!lol. There are some men that have bigger boobs than some women! Athletic women, tend to have flat chests. Women CAN be hairy. Some women do not have curves. We are not all made the same. With a lot of trans people, you can’t tell these things anyway. There are some fantastic drugs and procedures, products out there. There is also clothing out there that can shape you, to make you look like you have curves. Think Kardashian products, corsets. When my brother first started in Drag, he used to take my Mums and mine best bras and stuff them, and sow them in. (When he first started people kept asking me, did I find it weird. I would tell them no, I didn’t…I just never did…But it annoyed me that he took my clothes! You know those Facebook memories? Well, every now and then he’ll post one wearing a top I’d thought I had lost!) There is also clothing that do this as well, for flat chested women, push-up bras.
Basically, this is a really DUMB list. That would actually exclude a LOT of lesbians. Like Ellen! She is very masculine.
I’m not going to say hate, although I have been there a couple of times. I definitely really dislike them, especially the Conservative Religious types. Some days I’m like laughing at them, because I can’t believe how they can be this stupid. Then others days I’m like “HOW CAN YOU BE THIS STUPID?”????lol I recently changed my Twitters cover photo (LaurenBolton3). I also decided to take a Twitter break. I came back to it a couple of days ago, and now I’m going to limit my time on there.
What’s something your brain tries to make you do, which you have to will yourself NOT to do? (could be a bad habit, a physical response to something…your interpretation is as good as mine! )
Unfortunately, I can still take things a little personally. Without even meaning too, I am getting better at not taking things too personally, but sometimes. So sometimes, if my partner seems annoyed with me, I have to walk away from him and think about it more sensibly. “Is it really that big deal”, “Should I just tell my partner why I’m upset”.
When someone finds out what you do, or where you are from, what question do they always ask you?
Do I teach? Especially when they find out that I work in a school. If someone overseas finds out that I’m from Australia. I am not kidding, they will always ask if there are Kangaroos or Koala’s in the back yard -.- lol
What’s something terrifying that we’ve all come to accept as a fact of life?
Death, well, you kind of have to accept it. We haven’t got immortality…yet.
Should governments make laws to protect people from harming themselves? Could that even work? (yes this one is deep, maybe too deep).
I’m not really sure how you could govern it, that’s the only thing. It’s not something that people really share with others, and they are good at hiding it as well. Sometimes you have to be an expert at knowing how others act when they are harming themselves. I’m not actually sure it would work. I think we just have to stop the stigma around mental health. When people blame mass shooters on mental health, but then they’ll slash funds to mental health places. The solution seems simple, don’t blame mental health. Give education on it.
Gratitude is an Attitude…
Please share your gratitude for this past week in the form of a photo, a quote or a thought.
Tiny poll: I’m curious what type of questions YOU, the reader, would like to see more of? Less of? Has SYW gotten too philosophical and less fun in nature?
Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And how’d that work out for you? (Credit Allie Bean https://thespectacledbean )
Just very recently really. I told myself I am not allowed to drink anything coffee anymore, coffee beans or milkshake. It worked out because I haven’t had any since and I didn’t have a total anxiety break down,lol
What is gravity and how does it work?
My partner is actually a teacher and he teaches this, but bugger if I know,lol. Something to do with how we move around the sun, or is it the sun moving around us?!
What is more real – Mind or Matter?
I feel like without ones minds, what would matter? Woooo, trying to get all deep,lol.
Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers?
I didn’t expect this question, gave me a good chuckle. I think it would actually depend on what type of vegetarian they are and what’s in the animal crackers,lol. Some vegetarians do not have milk, or eggs, or butter from animals.
(Gratitude questions will resume after Halloween is past)
Name (describe) something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark and deserted wood or alley. Politicians are a given, so skip those please. Thanks!
One word…Octopus…They are too smart and they fit everywhere! I will never forget the documentary about them. Where every morning the scientist would come back and all the crabs would be gone. So they put up a video and it was the octopus. Waiting till everyone left, leaving it’s tank, eating the crabs. Getting back to it’s tank before everyone come back in the morning. Then they showed…I don’t know if I should say this. They showed an octopus going through plumbing, the size of a shower pipe. I couldn’t relax on the toilet for at least a week,lol
I’m going to be honest…When I first saw this title the first thing that I thought of was Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”.
In all honesty, as long as YOU feel safe and happy, that’s all that’s matters. That can mean anything, if you feel happy and safe in your job, health, food, social…As soon as you feel safe and happy in a particular area…THAT’S what matters. It will make you think more positively happy.
I haven’t felt like being nice anymore, at least not to those who truly don’t deserve me to be nice to them. I mean, what purpose has it served me over the years? I mean people say there are no nice people out there, and then they treat people who are nice…like total shit? Maybe, to these people, there are no nice people, because they are just full of it?
I’ve only just started to go back on Facebook and Twitter this week, meaning today. And realised why I don’t like Twitter and Facebook…The toxicity is enticing, isn’t it? I prefer Instagram I think because it’s more picture based, than text based. If you do want to follow me there you can find me at Lady Lolly Let me know if you’re on there too! I follow so many Book Box/Crates type accounts, it’s ridiculous,lol
I need to train my brain to stop overthinking, I honestly think that’s my problem. It’s probably been my biggest problem my whole life. How do you start too change something that’s just naturally been done your whole life? I have no doubt it can actually been done, but it’s going to be hard…But it’ll be SO worth it.
I unfortunately nearly had a panic attack a couple of nights ago. I was able to calm my thoughts and I fell asleep without any problems. When I woke up in the morning, although I was so upset that it had happened. I was proud of myself that I was able to calm my mind., without needing any drugs.That, I held onto all day.
Now, the reason I have put this together with the Australian Reading Hour is because I think that reading (especially our favourite novels) can help us to think and imagine. Imagine and think what we would like ourselves to be. It almost “perfect” that these two go together SO well on the same day.
