It’s a joke, right?

Did you know:

Harvey Weinstein lost 0 awards after he was arrested and jailed

Roman Polanski had to accept his last award from a different country. He has fled America, after a warrant is out for his arrest, for raping a minor.

In November 2017, Louis CK confirmed that a series of sexual misconduct allegations against him were true. He recently won a Grammy.

What a weekend! So many emotions right now. But this is how it started. With the “Academy” banning Will Smith for 10 years. I get what Will Smith did was wrong (despite my little glee about someone FINALLY getting what was coming). Violence is wrong.

You know what I find “funny”, the Hollywood Awards, the Governments, the mainstream media. They REALLY just don’t know the people.

Donate

One of the things that I REALLY love about Christmas is how much more people are willingly to donate or help others out. So I thought that I would post about a couple I’ve heard about or have donated too. This year and definitely more than other years, I’ve been donating. $5 dollars can make a lot of difference, especially if a lot of people do!

The first is for the animals, because who doesn’t love the animals.

Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

The next is for the Rape Crisis Centers in Scotland. Now normally, I wouldn’t speak about just one rape crisis center. The way though the Centre was run OFF of social media by so called “concerned women”. It literally made me want to throw up. Especially when these “women” accused the Rape Centers of being on the wrong side of History. After though, people donated to them like you wouldn’t believe!

It made me believe in the GOOD in people again.

Just Giving Fundraiser – Brenna Jessie – 16 Swims for 16 Days.

One for the children. This was actually really hard to find, because a lot of charities that support children, have come under scrutiny for not supporting anyone who doesn’t fit their “criteria”.

I’ve gone with UNICEF, mainly because I don’t *think* I’ve heard of them being bad. How terrible is that? You might need to look at your local charities for the kids. In my state, in Australia, a lot of retail stores do what is called a “Christmas Wishing Tree”. Where you can either give a gift (has to be new or not ruined), donate money, or you can donate money to buy a gift to be put under the tree.

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.

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:

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.
