QUESTIONS:

How can someone win a gold star (i.e. win your approval and/or admiration) with you?

Honestly, just being kind, and having some common sense these days. I have a post scheduled later today and I write about the insane day I just had. Kindness and Common sense just seem like such easy things to do, but they seem so difficult for a lot of people.

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

To be honest, I might end up wasting it. I’m probably taking this to out of the box. If we all didn’t have to sleep, would there would places you could go at night? Kind of like New York, my town there’s not much to do at night.

Do you have a favourite type of exercise?

I love to dance. I try to do it as often as I can these days, mainly around the house. But still dancing.

Do you sleep with a top sheet? Why or why not?

Even during Summer sometimes I will sleep with a top sheet. I think that my body doesn’t regulate too well. A lot of the times in Australia a lot of people will either leave their air-conditioning, or they will put the fans on. I cannot begin to tell you how many times, IN SUMMER. I have had to put winter pjs on because it’s so cold! It’s ridiculous! I still think it’s how you get summer colds, going from one extreme temperature to another.

This is your space to write about anything you’d like.   I’m GRATEFUL for your participation in Share Your World, so there’s the “gratitude” hook.  

I am grateful that my readers on WordPress give me such sanity in a crazy world!

Nurture Thursday – People In Our Lives

Nurt Thursday – People in our lives

Sometimes people come and go, some stay longer than others. Not all will stay for a life time. Some you may never actually meet, but they are as close to your heart as family. Some are family and you want nothing to do with them. Take the time to learn a lesson for each person that comes into your life, even each customer. I truly believe we were supposed to meet them. Even the truly horrible ones. Actually, especially the horrible ones.

QUESTIONS:

When was the last time you face palmed?   (for those who aren’t familiar with what that is, here’s a visual for you: )

Image result for face palm

I’m not sure. Mainly because I feel like it happens a lot these days,lol.

When is censorship warranted?  Ever?

The only times I can really think that censorship might be alright is when it involves protecting a child.

If there were commandments for the modern day world, what should (could, would) some of them be?  Get creative!

Be kind to each other.

I think that’s it really,lol

What did you Google last?

Chamomile Tablets. I just had this sudden thought that maybe they would help me better. Whenever I have chamomile tea, I feel instantly better. My anxiety lessens and I stress less. So why not the same with tablets? Wish me luck!

Gratitude is an Attitude:

This week I’m not asking for shares of things people are thankful for, I’m doing a re-blog and point to Beckie’s Mental Mess blog.    She’s started a whole ‘gratitude movement’ with her new weekly challenge:  “Pop of Positivity”.    Here’s a link to her first post in this effort:

Have a fabulous week!

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.

This is why we can’t have nice things…

Sometimes I get so frustrated with human beings. I consider myself to be a considerate human being, but sometimes even I have problems with the extreme PC crowd. Take the Notre Dame building burning. All these people with outpouring of emotion for a building that construction began in 1163, during the reign of King Louis VII, and was completed in 1345. It represents a lot more to the people of France than a building and a Disney movie.

Of course (not all) but some Americans are making it about them and how people don’t care about the black churches that were burnt. How it was built on the backs of slaves and it should have burnt. People can care about more than one thing at at time. Humans are amazing like that. Notre Dame isn’t just some or any Church and it’s also older than the white colonised, America. Thirdly, everything that is really old, ancient and historic were built by slaves. Including the pyramids, the Colosseum, Great wall of China, the Parthenon etc. We’re just going to start burning those as well?

People upset at these millionaires and billionaires and some governments wanting to spend money, is very frustrating. That I get. Why can’t they spend that money on something else? I am sure that the Church has money, it’s just a suspicion of mine. Or there wasn’t some kind of insurance placed on the building? (I would need to clarify that). When it first started to burn and before the people started to give money, people were making others feels bad. In the world of social media there will be somebody mad about something different.

Unless it is actually harmful to you, just stop and think before you put down someone. You don’t have any idea what that person is going through. Maybe there is an actual reason why they feel so sad.

QUESTIONS:

What’s the first thing you notice about a person?

If they smile or not, I’m not one of those “You’re prettier when you smile” people. It’s more “What makes this person smile?”. I mean, guaranteed it’s also a lot do with why I’m seeing this person for the first time.

What three habits do you feel would improve someone’s life?

These are coming from my own personal experience.

  • Regular showering. Showers just make me feel good, no matter how bad I feel. When I have a shower, I feel like it washes away all the bad “joo joo”.
  • Regularly getting out of the house, even if it’s just to sit in the garden for a while. I think whether it’s cold or warm, the little sprite of air can just make you feel a lot better.
  • Setting yourself a budget, even if you have a lot of money. I find setting budget for things, soothes me,lol

What takes up too much of your time?   Would you stop that if you could?

Honestly, worrying. It stops me from doing a lot of things. I’ve been sick recently, thought I was getting better and then I ate bad food so I got sick again. Now I’m too worried to do anything again. Worrying wastes time and I am extremely aware of it, yet I can’t stop myself. I would stop it in a heartbeat, I believe I’m getting better. I would usually spend a whole day worry and stopping doing other things. However, now I physically make myself do things and I always better after, so I have no idea why I let worrying stop me so much! It’s a frustrating cycle.

Cookies (biscuits to those elsewhere), pastries, pie or cake?   If not, what does your sweet tooth crave?

I love them all, I couldn’t choose. I have to be in the mood for them as well, some days I’ll feel like cake, others days it’ll be biscuit, etc. During Summer I hate having chocolate biscuits, to melty!

Gratitude?  Are You Happy?  If so, why?  If not, why not?

I am kind of both at the moment, I think that’s possible? I was doing so well this week. Going back to the toilet had been normal until today honestly and it got me down. I had a good cry, I am over being sick! I finally get off my anxiety tablets, not able to do as much, for this too happen. I feel so down right now.

QUESTIONS:

What’s the closest thing you’ve experienced to real magic?

I honestly, this is going to sound SO lame. I think seeing baby animals, any kind honestly, is magical. Even spiders and reptiles…Except for maggots. Baby animals are so magical. I could watch them for hours. I was actually nearly late for work the other day because as I walked to to work, I stopped and filmed some new baby duckling.

 

Who is the messiest person you know? And why? 

Honestly? It’d have to be between my partner and myself. I know, it’s terrible! We are actually getting better. That’s mainly because though the cat is sick, so we don’t want to leave him in a messy house all day. With it being so warm lately too, it’s not fair to leave him in a stinky warm house. My partner would probably say it’s me, but it’s both of us really.


If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?

Is there a way to stop people from believing and supporting Donald Trump?


What benefits does art provide society? Does art hurt society in any way?

I think it just depends on the Art and the Society, it’s trying to provide. Take the Covington Boys situation. You have young teenagers who are wearing red hats that have no healing proprieties what so ever. Thinking that somehow Nathan Phillips banging a drum is supposed to be him intimidating them? Yet everyone who knows, knows that Phillips was banging a healing drum and chanting a healing chant. It’s the same situation with Art. The people who get it, will get it and there will always be those that don’t and those that do.


What’s something positive you’d like to share?  Can be a smile, a joke, or music..anything that gave you a lift this week!

Honestly, it’s been the support of the others who hate Trump as much as we all seem too,lol…This week has seemingly been particularly rough.

Is there one post on your site that is really special to you?  (credit for this one goes to CrushedCaramel )

I like any post of mine that had got people talking to each other. I like bringing people together. I can’t think of a specific post I’ve written. Any that has gotten people talking.

How Do You Deal With Negative People?  (Athling2001 gets credit for this one)

It depends on the person and the situation honestly. Negative people at work and people in my private life, I handle differently.

What Is The First Thing You Think Of When You Wake In The Morning?

At the moment it’s usually about whether or not I got to sleep well the night before. Since I’ve started weening myself off my anxiety tablets, I can feel it happening. A couple of nights ago I had a really bad night, but it’s been the only bad night. It’s all about learning, new ways to cope.

Honestly the first few night I had amazing, crazy dreams…I wish I was still having those!

Would You Rather Be Able To Talk With The Animals Or Speak All Foreign Languages?

Without question, talk with the animals.

This month the gratitude question will address your life and what things you’ve received or done, that have brought you joy and sometimes relief perhaps.

What small thing happened today (or in the past few days) that you were grateful for?   

Honestly, just for the totally sane people in my life. I see all these things happening in America and, even here in Australia. I just think…This is nuts! Then I talk to my Mum or my partner, or my colleagues at work and it feels “normal” again.

QUESTIONS FOR THIS WEEK:

Name two books that have influenced you and share how.  (Credit for this question goes to Teresa of The Haunted Wordsmith.   She asked for TEN books, in her challenge, so the SYW folks got off a bit easy..) 

The first one that kept popping into my head “Playing Beatie Bow“. It’s a very famous Australian book, so I wouldn’t be surprised if most of my readers have not heard about it. It inspired me to use my imagination more. At the same time I was reading the book, I was going through a similar situation, so to be able to escape to another time. There was just a great escape to it.

The other book is, pretty much, all of the Tolkien books. For extremely similar reasons. Funny how neither of the books that have influenced me are about now,lol


In your opinion, where is the line between art and not art? 

Beyonce – Art … Kim Kardashian – Not art…Hahahahaha


Trivia for Halloween:   What item is banned only during Halloween from 12am October 31st to 12pm November 1st in Hollywood California?   (I know the answer, but I do not have any idea WHY)..c’mon…hazard a guess!  

Oh wow, as an Australian, I literally cannot think of anything. Trying to think of what might be a possibility. Since you said “Hazard”….The only thing I can think of is a fire extinguisher, but why would they ban that? I’m sure that would be illegal. Is it the sale of toilet paper?


What is something that really annoys you but doesn’t bother most people? 

I am not actually sure. A year or so ago I might have had an answer for this, but in the last year. I have been more and more surrounded by people who think similarly to myself. I honestly just can’t think of anything.


Instead of our usual gratitude question, I’m posing this one for this week:

What or who in your life brings you the most joy?

This is so funny because I have decided to make a list for New Years of not goals, but why I am grateful to be alive. Do I post what I’ve already got?
