Why Melania?

Why is Melania Trump so obsessed with what people think of her outer, rather than her inner? She looks gross, because she is gross. She’s so concerned about people bringing up her porn past, but she doesn’t seem to care about her current ugly views? Like birther comments, like wearing an offensive jacket. Why is she so concerned about the outer, when it’s the inner that needs work?

I recently saw a video having a go at Trump, because he left Melania behind in really horrible weather. I just did not feel sorry for her. I haven’t for a very long time. I don’t think she’s even that beautiful, mainly because she had no personality. The one she does have, she doesn’t want to own it.

Mindfulness

Too be completely honest with you all, when I first heard of “Mindfulness” I thought it was something to do with day dreaming.

I was clearly wrong…

Mindfulness is learning the ability to be present in the present moment. So when you have a anxiety moment/or moments. You are able to train and discipline yourself to calm yourself. Be in the moment.

Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment,[1][2][3] which one can develop through the practice of meditation and through other training. – Wikipedia (Mindfulness)

Mindfulness is about being present in the moment.

Some ideas on how to help being in the moment:

  • Understand when you first start to practice Mindfulness, you are not an expert. Expect to get distracted still.
  • Concentrate on what’s happening around you – Noises, smells
  • Try and not be judgmental about what you see, smell.
  • Notice what is in your immediate vicinity. How do your fingers feel on the surface your sitting on.

Do not worry if you start to drift off, and you don’t necessarily want to have a complete blank mind.

Being Aware, in that moment.

Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?

Oh my goodness, I do both of these! I still prefer using paper money, I will use “pay wave” and the like, but I feel REALLY uncomfortable doing it. Where is my information going, is it being stored?….I know…paranoia! I do also organise my money, I have to “notes” section in my wallet. One side will have $5 and $10, the other $20 and $50.

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

Some might say too much so! Although I guess a lot of time reading. When it gets cooler in Summer and when Spring starts, sometimes I just like to sit outside and enjoy the water. Usually my cat or dog hangs around me and I play with them, but I’m usually just sitting.

What is your greatest strength?

I’d have to say it’s my Heart. I don’t want to sound completely up myself. It’s a little ironic really as well. My great grandparents on my Mum’s side, just dropped, their hearts gave out. My Dad has had a triple bypass. While I say my hearts my greatest strength. I don’t necessarily mean physically. I’m one of those seemingly rare people, who just because I had a bad day or a bad sleep, doesn’t mean I become a raving lunatic. I can still be there for others, no matter what I’m going through. What I have to learn is to make sure people don’t take advantage of that.

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. 

I made myself smile this week. For the longest time since I’ve had these anxiety issues, I’ve really struggled getting on buses…Which since I don’t drive, it’s become very costly. I decided by myself, that I am going to reduce the number of taxis and Uber I take. The best present, I decided, to give myself, is to save some money and take another step forward in controlling my anxiety. SO I did it and I’ve already saved myself in this one week over a hundred dollars =D

Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?

If I could I would have both a reading nook and a art and craft studio. I like taking photos, but I’m not really interested in it to make it a whole room. I am more of a “phone photo taker”. I would love to have a reading nook though, I have seen so many pictures of people’s reading nooks and I just love them! I play “The Sims” and pretty much all of my houses have a “reading room”.

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)

I love this! It’s a little bit cloudy, but there is a sun and some light peeking out and hopefully there’ll just be a lot of light soon!

If you could witness or physically attend any event past, present or future, what would it be?

I would love to attend a Bruno Mars concert. At the moment I can’t really go to concerts, I don’t want to spend a lot of money just to have an anxiety attack. I keep telling myself though Bruno Mars is young, I’m getting better…One day this will happen!

Every time

I have always felt like a new Monday, a new beginning to the week, is as good as time as any to say “Goodbye” to the old. Every time I feel like I’m saying goodbye to an old part of my life and starting anew, I always play this song…over and over…and over…and…over….and over again ~.^

What do you like to do when you say goodbye to an “old life?”

The struggle is real…

I have really been struggling to come up with things to write this week. I have been looking at all my upcoming scheduled posts and there is barely anything there. Usually I’ll have quiet a few posts as I try to write as my brain thinks. Otherwise I just forget to write about them. I have about 4 posts left and then that’s it and I just cannot think of anything else to write about.

IT IS SO WEIRD!!!

It might have something to do with this past week I haven’t really been “getting out there” so to speak. I have been in such a slump this week, I think it’s got a lot to do with having two jobs and yet not getting shifts, so it feels like I’m trying to get my life moving forward and it’s just not happening. Hence the posts about “Getting Started” because I want to do something else in the meantime. I’m hoping that getting my first foot into the Library door, now I’ll be able to go for more permanent positions and then feel more “set up”.

One of the ironic things though is that I have actually been getting more readers recently, so now the pressure feels on to being you all much more exciting posts.

I think that I need to get back to what I started writing this Blog for, to bring you, the readers some happy and fun news. That include things about books. Which I should be able to focus on more now that I’m actually working in a Library. I haven’t even done a Random Literature Quote since last year!

SO now it’s time to focus again!

What are you really glad you did yesterday?

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?

After developing sciatica last year, I’ve found that I now prefer one floor houses,lol. It was literally hell getting up the stairs, there were a few times where I was crawling up the stairs and my Mum kept trying to convince just to sleep on the couch for the night.  Before that though I honestly didn’t mind one way or the other.

Have you done something you truly want to do today?

What plans did you have as a teenager that didn’t happen? Are you happy it didn’t work out that way?

I never really had set plans, I was so angry when I was a teenager, I just wanted someone to care and reach out. I don’t think thinking of future plans was high on my list. My parents separated two days before I started high school and no one ever asked me if I was alright. People were making me take sides. I struggled with dyslexia and didn’t even know it until after I finished high school, when I look back on my assignments and the comments my teachers were leaving, it was so obvious and none of the teachers gave a poop, except for one. Just getting through the day without losing it was pretty much all I was thinking of.
