Simple Truth

I don’t need to had extra words to say how simply true this is, and even for Republicans, how easy it is to understand.

Summer lovin, had me a blast…

Well it’s actually Winter in Australia right now. But the sentiment behind this post is the same thing. What I have to write today is a very simple message.

I know it’s hard during Summer and Winter to see happy couples out and about. Or during Winter to see couples all nice and cuddly cosy together. But just remember that at all times of the year, 24/7, it is better to be alone, than to be in an abusive relationship. Without a single doubt. I’ve seen relationship after relationship of people who are just in relationships to be in one. You end off being bruised more physically and emotionally than it’s worth.

If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)

I would definitely pay off both of my parents mortgages AND look for a house for myself. Probably not one that has something ridiculous like 7 bedrooms, but a nice house. That’s near the sea, but not so close that it gets all that salt rot.

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

Coming home again…Whether it’s my Mums or my partners home. That moment when you get back and you can take off all your annoying “look nice” clothes, and get into your sweats. Curling up with a cup of tea.

What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?

In all honesty (and my answer is pretty lame) Just to know that the ones I care about are happy. I know that it seems lame, but we’ve all had so much going on. That’d it’d been really nice just to know that they are genuinely happy. My partner and I make jokes now about how we are the druggie family. I’m on medication for my anxiety, he’s on antibiotics for an infected ear and even the cat at the moment. The cat is on tablets to see if his fits are from a parasite. Which means we are all taking some kind of medication at the moment. Even my Mum has come down with something personal, and she’s on antibiotics as well.

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. 

So it seems like everyone in my family has high cholesterol, so my Doctor has put me on some tablets to help bring it down. I’m glad that I got is checked though. Now I know that I can’t keep eating badly, it’s making me want to change my lifestyle. More home cooked meals, more walks. My Doctor said that I wasn’t really at risk at a heart attack, because my blood pressure is fine. Although it’s scary, I am glad that I got it checked, because now I know.

Forgive…Or just don’t care?

That is the question…

I was just randomly thinking about this…and my current situation with some people.

My Mum has always said that the opposite to love is not hate, it’s indifference..and I agree with her.

I was talking about my situation with a few people and they said “I’ll bet it takes you a while to forgive them” and the thing is…I already had…the next day….I thought to myself I think a lot of it had to do with simple the fact, I just had stop caring.

I was more shocked that not one of them mentioned that I had ended up in hospital and not a single one of them mentioned that they were glad to hear that I was alright.

However, that was just even more proof too me…It was always about them…Hindsight and all that…I have been more upset about losing jerks of ex’s.

But had I forgiven them so quickly, because I just did not care anymore?

So if you just don’t plain care anymore, is that the same as forgiveness? Or is it just easier to forgive because you don’t care either way.

It truly is the simple things

16. The simple things in life

It really truly is, I have always believed in that.

 It really truly is the simple I am most grateful for, they keep you happy and more importantly they keep you completely sane. Even if it’s just “hiding out” in your home for a couple of days and doing absolutely nothing.

I think in this day and age there is so much competition. Competition for the best:

Life to Work ratio

Money

Social Media profiles

Job

Friends

Family

Sometimes I honestly believe that are trying to be everything and have the best of everything, that we just simply forget how to be us.

Some of my favourite simple things are:

  • Having that cup of coffee with something small and chocolatey
  • Having a bath, even if I only spend 5 minutes in it
  • Not having to go anywhere, or do anything for at least two days in a row
  • Playing nearly any video for a couple of hours and not thinking of much else
  • Any time and any where that I can cuddle with my dog or cat.
  • Watching LotR, Hobbit or any of my favourite musicals, in the dark, creating atmosphere, eating popcorn…In fact I might do that tonight!

Cravings

I really do love it when a random thought hits my brain sometimes it’s kind of like:

 Brain, Simpson

Any-ways, I was reading a few reviews on some really big movies over the weekend and I saw the same “complaint” about how, even though these movies have been proving really successful…”Hollywood can’t come up with original”.

Then seeing this over and over, and although I agree, and realising that I don’t even mind because I enjoy these movies so much. I started to think to myself, most of the movies coming out are either:

a) reminiscent of my childhood,
b) are “simple” and by that I mean, they have big bangs and bad guys vs good guys.

Then it occurred to me, maybe that’s it? Maybe that’s why these “unoriginal” movies are doing so well? Maybe we’re all craving more simplicity in our lives? A reminder of when time was more simple? I don’t know about you all, but I’ve never noticed a really annoying trend, where everything is bad these days, and on the great big grand scale of things they are really not bad things. When you think about these “bad things” you think to yourself, if that’s the biggest complaint in your life, you have it pretty darn good.

I made a thing =D

We have just started Spring here in the land down under and this week in particular has been a scorcher! Also this year I have been getting more into cooking and such. I mean I’ve always been able to cook to survive type thing, but I am not a big lover of the kitchen!

However this year when I have gotten something stuck in my head to make, it usually has been staying in there until I either focus on something else (which guaranteed for me is pretty easy), or I make it. Since it’s been SO hot this weekend, I have literally been draining, I decided to make something I can never seem to find in my local supermarkets…Pink Lemonade

This was probably the best recipe that I found and it was really simple to make as well….Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade…The only thing is I used mostly lemon juice from a bottle (bad me, I know)…Otherwise be prepared to use and squeeze a LOT of lemons…I am not exaggerating, I mean a lot! It was really sweet and quite refreshing though, I highly recommend it

Watch this space for more cool recipes…I really want to make a “Jelly Cake” next =D I think that would fun for Spring!

Blogging…What’s it all about?

I was linked to a Blog a little while ago and it’s stuck with me for a while, mainly because it started out as a good acknowledgement, but then my Blog was called “Simple and…Stupid”…I don’t think that it was meant with harm or harshness. The word “stupid” though obviously stuck with me and I didn’t know whether or not to say “Thank you”.

It’s stayed with me and ever since then it’s been bothering me and I have been trying to “improve” my Blog ever since. With anything that makes you feel like you need to change when you didn’t think there was a problem before, I couldn’t come up with anything mind blowing or life changing. I have my moments with those things, but I can never force myself to think that well 24/7.

SO I’ve been getting upset, but then I started to think. I don’t need my Blog to be complicated and thought-provoking ALL the time. I don’t mind my Blog seeming “simple” to people. Life is full of enough complications and as much as I want my Blog to feel good to others and uplift people, it doesn’t always have to be the most “complicated” Blog to achieve this. I have a personal journal where I write a lot of my thoughts, come up with sayings and express a dark part of myself.

If you want a Blog with simple thoughts by a girl whose’s just going through life as we all do at our own pace, this is the one for you. I have my complicated thoughts, but I don’t think that’s what I’m here for, others may be, but I am not and I am okay with this. There are plenty of Blogs within WordPress with amazing writers, but never forget the little tiny bits that make up a day either. I think this Blogging site IS like a Library, full of different topics, experiences and types of writers that appeal to different people of different backgrounds.

Just one piece of advice, write your blog for YOU…You wont last with blogging if you are trying to be the next “big thing”. I consider myself to be an “expert”, if you will, with simple things, because I don’t understand making things more complicated than they are. I guess this has been reflecting in my Blog and I am alright with that. Oh! Don’t call another Blog stupid either, no matter the circumstances.
