We need to get over ourselves…

Well not me, I’m perfect…lol.

  • “Christians” who refuse to wear a mask, because they think it makes them look foolish. While stating it’s their “right” to not wear a mask. Completely ignoring OTHER HUMAN BEINGS RIGHT TO LIVE. That’s not Christian, that’s the Devil, dears.
  • People who want to “save” the human race, but wont wear masks. Then talk about “family bonding”.
  • People who constantly ask ME, why my BROTHER doesn’t call them. If it bothers you that much, ASK HIM…Maybe the fact that you’re asking a completely different person why a completely different person does what they do, might be a clue there?
  • Stop asking me if it bothers me that he doesn’t ring people. I am clearly not bothered, by the fact that I am not the one complaining about it and saying “that’s just who he is”.
  • If I didn’t ring you, I am not required to give you split second answer to every question you have. I DIDN’T RING YOU!
  • I am not required by any rule or law, to hang out with people, that YOU don’t even like, just because their “family”.
  • WEAR A MASK!

30 Day writing challenge … Day 26

26. Write about an area in your life that you would like to improve on.

I would like to be able to motivate myself more. I don’t know how many of you read my other30 Day writing challenge Day 17.

That was about my Zodiac sign, and how much of it can I relate. Well stubbornness is probably the biggest way I can relate to being a Taurus. When you’re not motivated to do something and you are STUBBORN as…It can be hard to get over that hump. We’re not talking about your every day procrastination, I’m talking about PROCRASTINATION…

I stop myself from SO much, because I genuinely don’t want to do, if it’s a task I’m doing, because of work or homework. Or that I really scary myself or don’t believe in myself enough to push myself. I am like the Bull, stop and stood still.

Yourself

Remember, to take care of yourself!

Give yourself a goal, every week to reward yourself. A couple of weeks ago, I started to garden. Although I probably wont see the results for a couple more weeks. I am really proud of myself. I think the spring onion and chamomile bush, are going to do well. Although I know everyone has told me that you can’t kill spinach. I think I may have…

This week, my goal is to get back into exercise. I was actually doing quiet well during Summer here. Then I lost focused, so I want to start again. I’ve been even wondering if I should just start in the home. I’ve still got all the stuff. It’s Winter here right now, so the thought of going outside for a run, or heading to gym is very off putting. Though I have never actually gone to a gym to do exercises.

The biggest reason that I’m doing it is because although I’ve been taking cholesterol tablets. Apparently my cholesterol has not shifted. It’s neither gone lower or higher. Which I’m not entirely sure that’s a great thing. So my Doctor wants me to go from 20mg to 80mg. The next couple of weeks, he wants me to take the 20mg, but twice day (becoming 40mg). When I feel there are no side affects, to then go up to 80mg.

What harm can a little exercise do?

What can you do to take care of yourself? It doesn’t even have to be anything that exciting!

  2. The word biotch is the only thing I’ve kept from my time of liking Khloe Kardashian.
  3. I have liked all the Kardashians/Jenners at some point…All, but never Kim. Also, I don’t like any of them anymore…Except for Scott, funnily enough. I really like him. He’s a character. He should has his own show, but I don’t think he could handle it.
  4. I wish I was more confident with my body. I would like to do a boudoir picture for my picture for my partner…But I would just start laughing.
  5. Even though I’ve been told in the past, that I’m annoyingly sexy. I have never felt sexy, as a person.Cute, but never sexy,lol…By annoyingly, they meant, because I don’t even realise how sexy I am,lol.
  6. When I take a good selfie of myself, there are probably about 10 more after and/or before where I make stupid faces purposely…and sometimes I keep them!lol

  12. Then Death in Paradise and Poirot
  13. I love running my own Discord channel…*hint hint* There’s not a lot of people on it, but it’s been a lot of fun! I love having the responsibility of having to come up with ideas to talk about. It keeps me distracted. Thinking about other things, other than the harshest of life.
  14. I think Kim Jong Un was in a coma

Questions:

If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make them?

I think it’s a reminder to ourselves, that we are not perfect.

How do we know that pleasure is good and pain is bad?

I think it’s that dopamine? … I think?lol

What problem or situation did TV / movies make you think would be common, but when you grew up you found out it wasn’t?

When I really think about it, it has to be the Cosby’s. Only because though they were such a beautiful family (on tv) that it made me think racism isn’t an issue. Meaning, I didn’t know it was even a thing, if that makes sense? I remember when Oprah was talking to someone about black families on tv, and how “The Cosby’s” was the first show where she saw a black man lay his head loving in the lap of his wife.

Does that make sense? I guess my answer is the opposite of the actual question,lol

If you drive, do you speed when no one is watching?   Have you ever run a red light late at night on purpose, particularly if it doesn’t seem to change very quickly?   If you don’t drive, what minor law may you have broken?

No,I would never do that. You just know that the ONE time you do it, there’s going to be police, right there. As far as I am aware, I have never broken a Law…Although I probably have done jay walking.

What positive things are you finding to do to occupy your time right now?

I am writing and trying to organise my Discord channel, playing YouTube in the background.

Nurture Thursday – Your Best

Nurt Thurs – Your Best

I have been struggling to think of something for this. Work is overwhelmingly busy at the moment. Although I keep being thanked for helping out and making life easier. I always wonder to myself “Can I do better”? I always say to myself “Well that’s future Lauren’s problem, if something has gone wrong.” So even though I know I am working hard and doing my best, I sometimes really have a big self doubt to myself.

Sometimes what I’ll do, I’ll do something to make myself feel better about myself. So I might clean something, because I can do that. I’ll play the Sims, because I can do that. I’ll read because I can REALLY do that! Your best is literally all you can do!

QUESTIONS:

Is ‘hello” enough for you these days?  (credit to Rory – https://aguycalledbloke.blog/2019/12/29/is-hello-enough-for-you-these-days/ )

I admit I was a bit perplexed by this question. After reading Rory’s blog post though, I get it now. A hello is still good enough for me. I still say hello to my neighbours and also if I’m walking my dog, as I go past people, I say hello. Just a quick little word to acknowledge another human being.

Do you believe in Murphy?   For those who aren’t familiar with Murphy, here’s a wee explanation:  Murphy’s law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”.

I do,lol. It’s one of my faults really, it’s one of those things where it makes me not believe on myself. It’s a habit, I’m going to try and break this year. Though, at the same time, when I imagine the worst, it doesn’t always happen. I’d say the worst probably happens 5% of the time.

Does evil come from within?  If so, why?

I think we all have the potential to be evil or do evil. I do think some people are just born evil. When you hear about child killers, children that kill, who knew what they were doing. Yet, they’re parents are so lovely and you’re sitting there thinking “How does it happen”. Sometimes our brains are just wired like that, but I think a strong upbringing can help “control” it. Sometimes, and unfortunately, we are evil, because it’s how our brains are. Take someone like Aileen Wuornos for example, when she was caught and found guilty she asked for the death penalty. She knew how her brained was now wired. So I don’t think she was born evil.

Are intelligent people more or less happy than others?   What defines intelligence?

This is an interesting question, I don’t think happiness has anything to do with intelligence. Happiness and Intelligence are different things to different people. The most intelligent people I know/knew were never happy, and they’d end up with abusive and toxic relationships, including friendships. So they can’t possibly be happy. Yet, there’s little old me with my dyslexia and generally I get how lucky I am and so I am content with a lot in my life.

You can be intelligent about a lot of different things, and luckily I have realised that in the last couple of years. I have to thank Trump and his supporters for that. I never felt like I could say anything about politics or anything intellectual. Until I started to realise, that I have a common sense intelligence. Emotions intelligence. Something a lot, if not all, Trump supporters lack. Despite saying they are a “Christ/God” or “Jesus” lovers.
