I am definitely a better listener, people come to me a lot with needing someone to listen to them. Speaking, my brain tends to go faster than my mouth, so it’s makes no sense. One of the reasons I love to Blog, I can write what I am thinking. Then can rewrite or edit if it’s all jumbled up. Sometimes I can think faster than I write as well!
If You Were Asked To Design A Warning Label That Would Be Tattooed On Your Skin, What Would It Say?
(Credit for this question goes to a blogger I’ve just started following. You can read more about her by clicking here. )
I’m stealing a quote here “And though she may be but little, she is fierce”
What Are You Passionate About?
I think I am passionate about anything that is creative. Anyway to look at something in a new way. I love coming up with new new ideas that I can use creatively.
If You Could Change One Thing About Your World, What Would It Be?
I wish that I wasn’t such a bad procrastinator! I am probably one of the worst, you’ll ever meet! I’ve got all these projects started and then…that’s it. I wish I could change that about myself.
What Gave You A Reason To Smile This Past Week?
I started a diary, one that you actually write in, not like a Blog. A personal diary.
*start rant here =P*
If you are an avid reader of mine you’ll know that I watch this live web feed Wild Earth Live Safari. Any-ways, on their Facebook page (one of them anyways) they’ve decided that people are not allowed to post anything about poaching or hunting? It’s a wildlife page on conservation land that has a wide range of animals that are heavily endangered, and they don’t want posts about poaching and hunting because it’s not “nice”?
People are all for it too, except for me…I’ve created a little bit of a ho ah…Aww the poor little human beings are all put out by the articles saying that they animals they claim to love so much are being tracked, hunted, beheaded. We’re watching these animals for free, and you don’t want post some articles because its “not nice”. I think it’s the LEAST we can do for these animals! Get the articles out there.
Make the people aware of how bad it is out there!
I cannot turn my back on these animals as we are lucky enough to watch these drives for free, educating us, teaching us and not only do the animals ask us for nothing, we are the only ones who can speak up for the animals. If a group of people who understand and see these amazing creatures in their family groups and their every day habit…Turn our back and not talk about the realities, because it’s not “nice”…My heart is literally broken.
This video is of a young Matimba male called “Junior”. Junior is a young male and will be forced by his Dad and Uncle to leave the pride soon, he’s just getting to old to hang around anymore. Junior does not have any brothers to leave with and their does not seem to be a young male coalition around that he might be able to join. Junior will more than likely have to survive on his own and far away from the safety of the conservation. Into the path of poachers and hunters…How can anyone look at him and go and pretend that this isn’t happening. Why would anyone want to do nothing and not stand up and say “No! We wont allow this to keep happening!”
I was nominated by the lovely Passion through Poetry to participate in the “Love in Ten Sentences” http://movingtowardsthelight.com/2015/03/13/love-in-ten-sentences/ The basis concept is is to write a ten line poem each containing four words and the letter “love”. Mine doesn’t rhyme (I actually wrote this a few days ago, but I was unsure whether to to post it or not) and in case you couldn’t guess it was a bad day for me =P
Love that’s been abused,
True torment, love heals
Pain lives, Love dies,
Love those around instead
Love carries swirling emotions
Heart carries love burden,
Love damages the heart,
Love cures the heart,
I love my heart,
I love it most.
The other thing I need to do is nominate 10 people. I am not one of those people or Bloggers that will force another person to do this, so please feel free to do or not to do,lol. In no particular order I nominate:
Here I am sitting in class (it is amazing how often I think while in class) and I had an “Oprah Light-bulb Moment”, so here I am trying to finish off this Blog before class finishes because I know that I’ll lose the momentum.
Blogging, to me, is like an open mind journal. You write what you are most passionate about and you get to spread that passion with the whole wide world. At the same time though you get actual real life responses. For me I am getting these responses from no one I personally know…and it’s fantastic!
I am getting objective points of views on topics that I love and getting a huge wide range of advice from people that I don’t know…and that to is fantastic!
It’s not like Facebook or any of those other social media sites where if you write something people who do know you and, in all good intent, want the best for you. It’s just not the same way. They think too much and they also think that they know you and everything about and it is then that it becomes extremely clear who does not.
I like objective, I like to think in a way I have never thought before, I like my opinions to be challenged in a respectful way.
