Courage to Walk – Nurt Thursday

Nurt Thursday – Courage to Walk

I have to warn you all that I am going to make this personal, however if you can relate, that makes it even better!

When I had my massive panic attack last year, and when I came back from the hospital. I basically stayed on the couch, day and night for the next two days. I had never been so scared in my life…But…I got up again…I didn’t want to be on the couch anymore, I wanted to get up again…I did not want to be on the couch for the rest of my life…I didn’t want too…

dont be afraid

The most satisfying and most empowering moment that I’ve had in my recent life is when I walked out the front door and sat in the park near my partners house. For the next month or so, every extra step was a personal triumph! When I went inside to the cake near my partners house and waited in line with strangers to buy a cannoli…Amazing! There is a lot of truth to

“The first step is the hardest” But you can!

The Butterfly – Nurt Thursday

A Beautiful Butterfly – Nurt Thursday

I feel like every time we learn something new, whether that be about ourselves, the world or about some other. We change a little bit more. Into something else even more beautiful, because we change our understanding of the world.

Learning is beautiful.

Find your Tribe!

Nurt Thursday – Who’s Your Tribe?

I was so happy to see this weeks Nurture Thursday…My Gran has always taught me that the people we truly “click with” are our “tribe”.

When we talk about “tribe” in the more emotional and spiritual type. We’re not talking about, like the Maasai tribes or tribes like that. We are talking about people we click with those vs those people we just don’t. When you meet someone and you just click or don’t click with. Those people that are just not part of your tribe. The ones you cannot connect with on any level vs the ones that you do. Even when you don’t really understand why one way or another.

Movie Marathons

Aren’t they fantastic?

My partner and I decided to go out to a cinema and do a “movie marathon” over the Easter Weekend…He stayed longer, but there have just been so many movies that we both wanted to see. We managed to figure out the timing and it just so happened that all the movies I wanted to see we could watch first!

Just a quick break down of the movies that I saw…

Wrinkle in Time

I will just start out by saying that I have not read the book written by Madeleine L’Engle. I can’t make a fair comparison between the two.

However, I did enjoy the movie…I cried a lot in it, and my partner kept laughing at me. It’s not so much “action packed” it’s more of a thinking movie, more scientific as well. What I have really been loving lately, with the movies that I’ve been seeing. That the “love relationships” have not been largely based on romantic love (The only “romantic” type movies I see are usually musicals and someone usually dies,lol…I don’t know what that says about myself,lol). They’ve been mainly about family love, self love, or the story is just not largely based on a romance This is one of those. I also love how the young girl is so…real…She is very honest about what she doesn’t like about herself (which broke my heart)…But how she also begins to believe in herself. I felt a journey with her that I could completely relate too. I feel like every girl has been there at least once…Even the bully girl, you begin to feel for her too.

The colours are magnificent, I’m a very visual person, so colours represent feelings and emotions to myself as well. All the “Mrs’s” are just beautiful as well. Not just with their outfits, but their words and souls.

“The most memorable books from our childhoods are those that make us feel less alone, convince us that our own foibles and quirks are both as individual as a finger-print and as universal as an open hand.”

I’m going to read the book now

Pacific Rim

This is undeniably more action packed than “Wrinkle in Time”.

John Boyega is always gorgeous! Of course being “Idris Elba” ‘son’…Can’t expect anything less really,lol

Just like a lot of action films, it’s not too deep, but a good film…Worth your money to see on the big screen. There are things that have happened to the characters to motivate them the way that they do. Just your usual action film with big robots type film.
