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.
Like nothing out of the ordinary happened, but it was just weird…Do you know what I mean?
When I got my vaccine jab, I thought it might be a bit of a slow weekend, and the Friday night was, Saturday was…I slept in for a long time on the Sunday, as, because of my own anxieties I hadn’t slept well on the Friday. Sunday went fast, even on a day where if I had slept a long time, it was fast. I went to cook dinner, and the rice cooked fast, so then I had to cook the rest of it, I walked away to visit the loos. When I got back, it was all nearly burnt.
One pair of scissors has just disappeared. I found my sneakers in the back room, with NO clue how they got there. I know that the vaccine did ‘upset’ my body, as I expected it too. But when I saw the sneakers with no idea why they were in the back room. I didn’t think I was THAT bad, lol … Like I, jokingly, accused my partner of trying to mess with me.
You know, I think I just honestly remembered. When I got back from the jab. After a couple of hours, and realising I was doing okay. I thought I’d do a bit of gardening!!!! The weather was really beautiful! Ahh!!! Ahaha! After about a hour or so, I was starting to get tired. So I went into the back room, which looks out into the whole back yard, and I sat down. I must have taken them off then, why I didn’t take them to the bedroom, when I would have walked down to my room to slip into slippers…I don’t know, lol
I was happy, but not quiet right as well. The cat stepped on my vaccine jab, and after two days I can lift my arm a little bit more. The first night I had to get my partner to undo my bra, haha.
However, last week I discovered that I am now 70kgs, which is 154 pounds, 11 tonnes (I think). Which was depressing to me, because I don’t feel like I’m 70, lol. Up until the day I got my jab, I couldn’t think how was I going to change anything. It is partly to do with the medications that I’m on, that I can eat a lot. I never used to, and the food I did eat, was fruit or vegetable. I used to be able to make a packets of chips last a week, now they don’t last a hour, lol.
This weekend, including the day I got the jab, I’ve not done this. Like I ate things “as a treat”, but I couldn’t eat them all, and lord knows, I tried, lol. Is it possible that the vaccine has (hopefully) suppressed my appetite a little? I can still eat and enjoy eating still, I just can’t seem to eat as much.
This week has been slightly mind numbing, and it’s not tally the Taliban fault. Although that should be one of the top concerns for people right now, that and COVID.
Yet, you’d think reading some people’s posts, they’re most interested in being “right” and concerned with made up problems. Woke up today (an a example) with a TERF, having already spoken with the Daily Mail and The Telegraphs, both “news” outlets that love their transphobia. Saying how she was sacked for writing to concern to London’s Mayor about the rape crisis centres.
Now though, as always it’s come out with bigots. She wrote the letter over a year ago, with HER concerns, not any actually concerns. Also, she was let go because they were restructuring. Which is probably why she didn’t write to the Centers first and wrote the London Mayor. Who can’t really do that much, as a lot of rape crisis centers are allowed to run them how they see works to the victims benefits. If you don’t want to accept trans people into your center, you are allowed to apply for a exemption anyway. Also probably because none of the rape crisis centers are having problems with the trans community, others than a over flow of victims (COVID). She’s and the other TERFs are literally just making up problems at this point.
I am over it. They can lie as much as they want. We are starting to see them for what they are. They’re even threatening to withdraw funding for a made up concern.
So next week, let’s have fun!
My posts are going to be more fun and chipper. I think you can write about serious topics, but in a fun way. You just have to be really careful with how you do it. They’re mostly going to be fun, that makes you think about fun and how you incorporate fun things into your life. I don’t know about you, but my brain needs it.
This is a bit of a cop out, I can’t think of anything to write for the moment. It’s the world…Every single day…
Do people think what they write and say anymore?
Do they listen to the words as they come out of their mouths?
Even though Trump is “gone” why does it feel like we’re still dealing with him?
How can people possibly say that words have no impact, when Trump is still making life changing impacts?
Why are people so stupid?
Have we always been this stupid?
Is it just because we had no social media echo, echoing out every single opinion known to man?
Why hasn’t that died out in the fires of Hell, still?
Why do people keep insisting on tweeting and posting every single stupid thought they have.
(Oh, this doesn’t include you).
And when they’re wrong, instead of remembering to be humble and go “I fucked up”, they double down instead?
Why do people insist we need to help women and girls with education, but they think they know everything and don’t have to “educate” themselves, when they’re a woman, whose working to get women and girls better education.
There was a day last week, that literally numbed and exploded my mind at the same time.
On one day, I saw Americans talking about how ridiculous Republicans are with their “pro-the-blue” and yet, at the same time, ignore the police and security who were harmed and injured and killed during Jan 6th. At the same time I saw transphobic women, “standing with” another transphobic woman, where the public are being asked for her to be sacked, because she keeps like a violent man’s tweets. Yet, at the same time saying how they’re all for Women’s Rights.
It was really bizarre, to the similarities between the two groups, at once.
And how they don’t see it, blows my mind.
Both groups not only stand with other people’s horrific behaviour in their own group, but deny it, lie about it and then hide behind the Constitution or Women’s Rights.
Really, age SHOULD change who you are. If you’re not changing, it means either you’re dead. OR you’ve had had a close mind your whole life. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the majority of TERFs, if not all, have been Karen’s all their lives. Change is a sign of a open mind.
You cannot change without a open mind, and you cannot have a open mind if you never change.
Oh, I can’t keep still right now…I’ve been walking, pacing around the house tonight.
We had a little bit of a scary drive home. This bastard in a big black car, decided to “hug” my partners car ass. I couldn’t even see their lights in the side mirrors. They tried to take my partner over on a corner, at peak time, on a busy road. My partner had to then speed up, because otherwise, we all would have crashed. So essentially, my partner did cut them off, but you know, we don’t want to die.
The car than started to follow us.
They backed off (I suspect that they had a passenger) when we started to head in the direction of the local police station. But I have never been so scared in my life! Well only one other time. But I’m still shook and my partner is totally fine, lol
I’m a “Little Woman”, and so big black cars following, that are clearly already angry and agitated, scare me.
I hate big black cars, the people who buy them, never seem to care about anyone else but themselves. I freaking hate them.
I really wish some of you lived here and we could chat ❤ It happened about 4 hours ago, but my head still hurts.
Anyone else there yet? I literally feel like my brain is shrinking. There’s too much going and not enough sensible “stuff” happening…
Tell me you’re weird, without telling me you’re weird…Tell me your brain is officially gone, without telling me that your brain is officially gone…This floor cushion is my birthday present to myself, I just got it this week =D I don’t know if you can tell, but I really love it, lol
I don’t know if any of you saw the amazing pictures of the trans pride March in the UK over the weekend…I ugly cried. It really is reassuring when you see the actual public taking a stand against things. I don’t even mean the trans pride, I mean for every situation. We have politicians and the media in our lives every single second of the day. And they are all horrible.
It’s nice to see the people and show what they stand for.
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.
