Since we are approaching the hottest part of our summer in the northern hemisphere, what’s your favorite ice-cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet flavor?  (Those of you who live down under I’m sure you remember what it is like in the hot summer months).

I really love frozen yoghurt! Gosh, it is so yummy! I am a big fan of any berry flavoured frozen yoghurt. I eat it so fast I get brain freeze, I never learn…But it’s just SO good! I just don’t like having type of frozen or really cold food during Winter. When summer comes back around though…Watch Out!

How often do you people watch?

Oh my goodness. If I’m around people I am people watching. The only time I’m not really people watching is when I’m at home. Even then sometimes I’ll watch my partner or my Mum just wondering why they’re doing what their doing.

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert?

Oh fresh water lakes. It just beautiful and meditative. Take a day and just lay out on the bank. The views and the animals…Bliss!

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Everything this week. This has been a good week, even though weird things happened. I took control and worked on it. Then I got exactly what I wanted. I just did it and it happened =D

Personally…I am just over the Kardashians

I used to like Khloe the best…Now I think she doesn’t stick to her word. She used to be for not wearing fur. After one incident with a small group of people, she decided she doesn’t like them, so she’s going to start wearing fur again…I call bullshit!

Then I started liking Kendall best, especially since both her and I suffer from anxiety. She just NEVER gives credit to anybody!

I have NEVER liked Kim…I think her being called a “Bully” is exactly what she is. I thought it was SO petty what she was doing with the perfume, especially since she’s just had a baby…Surely she has better things to do?

Kourtney and Kylie I’ve got no real issues with…I actually really respect and like what Kylie did with, regarding her pregnancy.

Not quiet a resolution…

 

*long post incoming*

Wow! This has been a year or what! I just need to thank some of you! Seriously if I had won the lotto this year, some of you would be reaping the benefits, lol…This has not been the happiest of years and I think we’ve all been through a lot…These types of years show us who is there for us, who makes things easier, who make things more toxic. Stop caring so much about those people who were never there for you and start relaxing a bit more that you are living your best life.

I want to do a BIG, Massive shout out to my family, my boyfriend and his family, the safarilive group and a couple of good close friends who have been the most amazingly supportive people ever! I could not have gotten through this year without any of you ❤ I really mean that! You reached out, you supported and you never once made me feel bad…Which would have made me feel even worse,lol. I literally have cried so many time with how bad I feel and how wonderful you all have been ❤

I’ve been debating a lot with myself whether to say this so publicly or not. However, I feel like I should share in case others have gone through the same and sometimes it can feel lonely, especially when you don’t really have other people who understand. I woke up in the middle of the night, for seemingly no reason at all and I couldn’t breathe. I ended up in hospital. Although it was just a massive panic attack, I had been suffering from anxiety for about a year previous. The drugs that I am now on, makes me so tired and my brain fuzzy and I am very careful with myself now…And I can’t drink alcohol for a year…Bugger! lol

The thoughts that the tablets can make happen almost make it not worth being on them, but you get through it all eventually. There was about two months where I felt like I was never going to be alright again. Sometimes every second felt like you had to keep control, because you were starting to lose. It was all very tiring. Night…Night is now the worst for me. So I’ve started to do things before I fall asleep, so it’s easier to fall asleep and not so scary.

I have been scared a lot this year and the only reason I feel half as good as I do now is because of you all ❤ I feel like every year I trust fewer and fewer people. Yet, I feel like this year some of my relationships/friendships have become stronger because of everything that’s happened. I guess what I want now in my life is for me to spend less time on people I chase and spend my time with people who want to spend time with me. I’m exhausted enough as it is, I don’t need to keep chasing people! I ironically now feel like I actually matter.

What I need: The biggest thing for me this year is because of you (and you know who you are) I am not worried anymore about asking for help when I need too. Asking for a break when I need too.

I guess it’s also why I’ve also been a lot more vocal on things that I believe matter. It may be annoying to see me comment on things especially about animals, lol…I just love them! Except for mosquitos and maggots, they are gross. I’ve been doing it a lot more lately, because I don’t want to leave this world not fighting for good! There is a lot of good in this world, even if this year has not felt like it, and it is worth fighting for!

I don’t really have a resolution this year, I just need to learn to not stress out so much. I tend to be one of those people who want to stress less, but then I stress that I’m stressing when I really don’t want to be, lol. I do however NEED to become more social again and learn to be around people again. So I will be doing more of the social gathering. I’ve already got quite a few ideas in mind!

The Ever lasting Effect of an Empath

Over the weekend Safari Live had a very special fireside chat that was dedicated to the Queen that is the Leopardess Karula. It got me too thinking, about those things, people, animals, that leave us with an impression forever, even though those things that we’ve never actually met before. How do they affect us so much?

Take the situation with Karula, I’ve never actually physically seen her, not to face to face (not that I would have wanted too), but through a tv screen, yet whenever I see a picture of her or a screen shot I started getting emotional. Or take the Manchester bombings, I don’t even live in the same country, let alone in Manchester, yet the whole day I was crying. Even with people I dislike, or people who have done me wrong. I get upset for them when I hear something terrible has happened, I just cannot revel in their misery.

(My super serious title is : The Moon Goddess Empath)

Any fellow Empaths in here?

I think that the issue I have most with being empathetic, is that unfortunately, I tend to “suck in” other people’s emotions and I have to constantly suck myself back out of situations before I am completely and utterly sucked in by the toxicity, and there is a lot of that out there!

So what as one empath to another, what suggestions that people who are empathetic, what direction, what suggestions can we make to one another to make our lives a little easier. It’s very hard to function in the world if we consistently let the world upset us. I have a few suggestions:

  • Make a commitment to yourself to take yourself off of all social media for at least once a day a week.
  • Eat and drink healthy…I know it may seem like a cliche, but I have taken out coffee recently and I have really noticed the difference.
  • On those days off from social media, fill your mind with something fulfilling, completely personal for you.
  • Understand that you do not have to go to any party or gathering, if you feel you don’t want too. Make sure though you do treat your mind instead!

One thing you should understand though is that being an Empath is not the same as having depression or a mental illness, that is a completely different thing. Although the two can overlap and correlate a lot.

Share Your World: Ribbonrx Edition: April 3 2017

(Please read Ribbonrx Blog…Such a variety of important topics!)

What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

Dance! I love those dancing videos of Astaire and Rogers, and I have such a crush on Gene Kelly. They just moved. When they dance, they just seem to move (sounds like a really stupid way to describe it I know). The best way I can describe it, it just seemed natural to move that way, almost as natural as walking. All that twerking and krumping, it’s just not dancing to me, it’s all just disjointed…Just my personal opinion.

What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?

Its hard to say musical a favourite genre for books, but musicals truly are probably my favourite genre. I guess if I was looking for a genre that was to fit both, would have to be fantasy. Lord of the Rings springs to mind where the genre really does fit both the book and the movie.

How often do you people watch?

I do it quiet a lot, if I’m at work I probably am doing it at least once or twice a day. Where I work currently we are the central part of helping people find their way, we are the front desk and we’ve got these huge windows that we can look out at. It’s incredibly addictive. It’s incredibly addictive for people watching and day dreaming on a quiet day.

What have you only recently formed an opinion about?

Good Question…There is a lot of different issues out there and lots of different opinions and I have re-looked at a lot of mine own. This is what I’ve discovered. There are far too many different opinions out there and that is what they are…Opinions…Just because you or I think it a certain way doesn’t make it’s right. For anyone, or any level. You can sit on your social media and try to change the meaning of a word to suit yourself, it still doesn’t mean that’s what that’s means. You can tell yourself that meaning or that word is not the same when it applies to you, so you don’t have to think of yourself as the same as the people who hurt you, but you are still doing the exact same thing. I get it, it’s like the bullied becomes the bullying, or the abused become the abusers, it’s a very well known thing to happen. You trying to sit there and saying though “Well it’s the not the same when I do it” Doesn’t make it suddenly change. I mean with anything, not just bullying and abuse. If you are doing the exact same hateful and saying vile things, like those that were said or done to you…Then yes, you are the same as them. You don’t get a “Get out of Jail” free card.

Humanity

I just wanted to start off with saying that I actually had another post ready to go today, but there is no way that I can post that post and ignore what’s going on in Dallas and the bad situation over there.

So much is wrong with this whole situation and I would be shocked to find anyone who didn’t see something like this coming. There’s only so much people should have to live with, no one should feel unsafe in their own car, in their own home, in their own neighbourhood.

I am very lucky living in Australia, and here “Down Under” I feel safe and it feels partly wrong to write about another country. In some ways though, I also feel like we all live on this planet together and there are just sometimes where you have to stand shoulder to shoulder with others, even if it’s just metaphorically speaking.

So my thoughts are with Dallas tonight and I HOPE that we all learn from this.

Do you think Charlie Chaplin would have had any clue how poignant his words would still be today? I am crying.

Share Your World – 2016 Week 15

Name one thing not many people know about you.

I never try to purposely hide any part of myself from people. I try to be as open as I can be. One thing that not many people know about myself, my father is an alcoholic, some of my closest friends don’t even know. It’s not something I am necessarily ‘ashamed’ of but trying to protect myself and all the “sympathetic” looks and the whole people thinking I might have a problem.

If a distant uncle dies and you were always his favorite and leaves you $50,000 (any currency) in his will, what would you do?

I would probably go on a nice holiday somewhere and give a couple of thousand to my mum, dad, brother and Gran. $50,000 wouldn’t really go very far these days…Unfortunately.

Where do you hide junk when people come over?

People hide their junk?hehe…If I hide something, I have some large cupboards that I usually stuff everything in.

Complete this sentence:  I want to learn more about …

I would love to learn more about Ancient cultures. I learnt about them in high school but I would love to visit and travel and see them in all of their glory.

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

Definitely Nacho Cheese Dorito chips! Summer or Winter, they are my favourite!

If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove nothing, which store would you pick? (except food or beverage)

Oh wow! I can’t remove anything? Maybe like a toy store then, so I could play with all the things but I wouldn’t really have a place to put them. So I could have play and then leave…Possibly leaving someone else to clean up the mess.

What was the largest city you have been to?  What is the one thing you remember most?

That would have to be between Arizona and Melbourne. They are both completely different but they are both different ways. Melbourne’s is mostly city and buildings (which are beautiful) but Arizona is mainly big due to their landscape.

Finish this sentence:  It has recently come to my attention that …. People these days appear to be a lot more “self-involved” then I remember them being. There is a lot more “I am right, you are wrong, no I will not discuss it”. 

Come Together <3

I woke up this morning to see the (numbers appear to be different, but they are in the millions) French people peacefully walking against extremist (but I have to remember NOT to read the news articles on Facebook,lol) I find that it’s been a bit terrifying to read the news articles on Facebook, they are terrifying and I tend to end up getting really involved and getting into arguments.

To see though MILLIONS coming together to say “No” to extremists and terrorist is a wonderful site, even if there are people out there who just don’t get it. I think that a lot of them think that we should take up guns and kill everyone. Some of the more interesting comments that I’ve heard are:

“Christians have never killed anyone in the name of God”

“Why aren’t there any Muslims marching? Because they care more about than idol” I promptly pointed out that it might have something to do with everyone is saying “Kill all Muslims”.

Anyways, I do not want to concentrate on that. I think it shows something when in the last few months we have had some situations around the world where we as a societywe had a choice. We could give into the fear, or we can show those extremists that we wont be scared off or intimidated. I personally think it’s great to see that most people in this world thinks that we should show those people that we’re not going to take it, instead of becoming vigilantism ourselves!
