“I can’t just sit by a watch”. I’ve been binge watching Genius: Aretha Franklin and my lord was she one POWERFUL woman!
How does someone even get that powerful?
She had a lot of good backing, but I think she would have got there even without them. Her Daddy was a popular and powerful preacher, a good friend to THE King! (Martin Luther King). Is it really who you know?
I get so frustrated! Trans lives are not up for debate. BLM is not up for debated. Conversion Therapy just needs to be outright banned. No “exemptions”, just banned. These things aren’t just not that difficult to compute. If you’re going to take away people’s rights and lives. You’re a bigot, not up for debate.
I am left/liberal, I wouldn’t say I’m “far”. But I most definitely get emotional and really easily annoyed. My brain cannot compute the lack of humanity lately.
Although I am totally divided on the whole Australia Day controversy. I feel we need another name for the day, but I also feel like we can still have an “Australia Day”. Just not on this day! Does anyone have a problem with another public Summer holiday?
However I am heading and staying over for the night at one of more popular beach towns and I want to take it back! One of the people who I have banished from my life forever, always called it “hers” when she doesn’t even live here! It’s always been about her…But it never was and it will never be again! It’s my town now!
Also did you know that Luna Park in Sydney was originally first in Adelaide at Glenelg Beach? Adelaide was too small a town at the time though, they decided they’d take it to Sydney…So middle fingers up to all those people who say that Sydney’s Luna Park is better than Melbourne’s Luna Park…We had it first!
Ladies! Listen Up!
What is it lately with the ladies? Every time I see a women come forward about their experiences with assault. The majority of people who attack these people after they have come forward…are women?
What is up with that?!
I feel lately that I’ve been posting this in a lot of these “women” comments. I’m sure some of you have seen this:
Art Exhibit Powerfully Answers the question “What were you wearing?”
Too break it down. The Exhibit shows the clothes of women (not sure if there are guys in the exhibit) who were raped and what they were wearing at the time. You’ll probably find that the majority of the time it’s by a friend or someone you know, and you’re not wearing anything sexy at all. All the women I know, that’s exactly what happened. I think only one was raped by someone she didn’t know, but she was wearing a school uniform.
So what’s up ladies, why the hating? I think most of my readers don’t think this way, but I would love to know why other women attack other women and ask the question “What were you wearing? See the twitter feed below to see what I mean: (Will warn you first…Trump supporters here). You’ll probably notice that most of the “attackers” ARE women.
I just recently got into an argument with a lot of women who were standing up for Aziz Anir…Now I believe he didn’t realise that the woman was uncomfortable, but it was absolutely shocking to me how many women were saying “She could have just left”. Do these woman know nothing at all? The thing that were making me saddest about the comments are that men are finally getting it. Maybe just maybe if women weren’t so fearful of being killed…They could just have the strength to leave.
Men are killing thousands of women a year for saying No
How old were you when you learned your most lessons? This question was asked a couple of months ago and I thought that it was a great question to ask myself at the end of this year.
Each year I learn something different, it’s not just about learning something new every day, but what have you learnt that’s new about yourself this year?
This year I have stopped giving a damn so much. I have stopped being so silent and not saying anything when I feel passionate about something…And you know what? The same people who have always been there for me, are still here with me. I got unfriended so much on Facebook this year and I DON’T care. It’s been really freeing. I still get frustrated by those who I have a conversation with and they unfriend me the next week, but that frustration lasts about as long as it took you to read this sentence ~.^ Some people I’ve had awkward conversations with because I’ve had no idea that they have unfriended me,lol
Some people are only features in your life’s journey.
I feel so powerful and even with the health issues that have “hindered” me this year, I have been pushing through, fighting my own mind. I can proudly say that I am proud of myself this year. I don’t care anymore, but neither have I become heartless either. In fact, I feel like my heart has opened even more. Through all of the discussion and so forth I’ve taken part in this year, it’s opened me up to a whole new world.
There are very bad people out there and people have lost a lot of “common sense”, but the good always outweighs the bad.

Well, my first mistake was tryna please everybody
Only to realize I ain’t need anybody (nobody)
But all I ever wanted was acceptance
‘Til I accepted myself, now I can check that off my checklist
I am no longer checking for your guest list
Or where I land on your best list
I look at my reflection and it tells me who the best is
So I could never do it like the rest did
You might sense a “theme” this week…Will explain later! =D
(This may be a hint to a Blog that I am writing for later today ~.^)
I am SO happy to report that my friend who for one second seemed to want to go back to her emotionally abusive ex (they are all as bad as each other). Has decided NOT to and is already going out on another date!
I am SO proud of her, I know how hard this is for her. Being single is one of the worst things that can happen to her, I’m fine being single, she HATES it.
Being someone who is perfectly fine being single, I’ve never really understood those who would be willingly to go back to a relationships that is just unhealthy. I would love to understand it, I love being in my relationships, but if it’s time to go…It’s time to go. My friend is incredibly smart and strong, I guess we can’t all be perfect though ~.^
I post this video in honour of my friend (she would hate anything poppy and girly!lol)

Sometimes you need something to help inspire you to get out of bed and sometimes nothing makes you feel more inspired and powerful and brings out the magic in you more than a beautiful tune…Celtic music just has something magical for myself…I hope you think of this song throughout the day!
