When I said I don’t know where I get my taking on everyone’s battles for them came from. My mum and dad are both pretty laidback, except when it really matters. My mum jumped on the back of a bully who was burning out cigarettes’ on a kid. My Dad either took on the Union, or he was forced to become part of the Union.
That I am a hopeless case…
I am 100% a Taurus, I’ve got Irish Catholic blood in me, and I am exactly like my Great Grandfather aka Papa Joe. She thinks if he was still alive today, and the current state of the world, he’d have another heart attack.
We’re waxing philosophical in our questions today:
Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not? (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise): Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions). I think we definitely can. I think sometimes, depending on the circumstances, it can be hard or easy. I think it also can depend on how you were brought up. Yeah, it can definitely done be done. I think at the moment, it’s a bit harder to do. I had a conversation with someone today where because Trump said he wasn’t aware of the “phone call”. Then it must be true. So I showed him a whole lot of articles showing where Trump lied, including one today that involved Apple. So he may not be the most objective when it comes to telling the truth.
Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul? I think we do all have a soul. Including animals. I’m not necessarily religious, but I do believe we all have a soul.
Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”) I actually have no idea. I’ve been around some really horrible people who’ve passed away, or like famous “paedophiles, murderers” etc. When they die, people suddenly have a bad word to say? I don’t understand it personally. My mama did teach me though, “when you’ve got nothing nice to say, say nothing at all” So while others may speak well, I just try not to say anything.
Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader. Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating. While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence. I honestly just miss seeing a kind leader. I see someone like Jacinda Arden and I can’t help but think “What went so wrong everywhere else?”
Share your gratitude! Stories, images or thoughts all welcome.
I have probably written about this before, in fact, I am sure that if I went to search, I would find it. However, lets write a refresher! Things change, people change. In Australia, we abbreviate a lot of words…Like…a lot! Nearly every word has an abbreviation. The word I’m focusing on today is “Mate” as in Soul Mate.
Too me (and like I’ve said, I think I’ve written about this before). Soul Mates are not just for a romantic purpose, not to me.
Soul Mates are about yours and mine souls and all the human beings we bump into along the way. Not just the romantic partners, but everyone, even our family. Although born into a family, I believe we were supposed to be born into THAT family. All the souls we bump into along the way, they are a soul mate…Even the horrible ones. What we do once those souls have impacted us, are still left up to us.
On a similar topic, I do believe that animals have “souls” as well, but they’re just much more purer than ours.
This was a hard one for me because there are a few things that people have given me that I am grateful for in many different ways. I have also taken this week as not just a specific gift that someone has given me, but also part of who I am and why I am the way I am, that other people have given me. Those who have given me the gift of making me “harder” by hurting or betraying me, those who have given me the gift of giving me more of an open mind by opening up my world and my mind.
An actual gift that someone have me though, there is one that sticks in my head. I have a huge white fluffy rabbit, it is great for hugging and just sitting against. I have had this bunny for years and year. I think that I may have been possibly about 10 maybe 11 ish years old? The reason why it sticks out to me the most, is not generally because the size of the bunny. I am not even kidding when I say even now, too me, it’s a really big bunny rabbit. However, the reason why it sticks out in my mind is because it was given to me by my Grandmother and it was an Easter present. It was the first year I did not get chocolate. Which was great! I actually am not a big fan of chocolate and it would get wasted on me. This huge plush bunny rabbit is STILL with me, it was the first time I was given a gift that was actually “me”.
Alone on a Saturday night and I don’t care!lol…I haven’t even really been drinking, I have had one lemonade soft drink with a shot of vodka in it. It’s honestly been really relaxing and I am enjoying and am about to watch even more Disney movies.
Any-ways, I have been sitting here and thinking to myself. I feel so grateful about a lot of my very close friends and the people who are in my lives and it got me thinking about soul mates. I don’t think soul mates are just for the romantic partners. I think anyone whose soul entwines with yours in some way or another and I think that this can be anyone, that’s what a soul mate is to me.
(So I wrote this is when I had an overwhelming feeling of anger towards my ex and I was never going to share it, but I think that a lot of people would understand where I am coming from and I had this thought that when I do meet the ‘right one’ for me. All this anger that I feel I am going to feel so ashamed of because I let some…idiot…nearly ruin any chance I have of falling in love again).
It’s okay to feel angry, it is truly alright. Just make sure that you learn and you try understand that not everyone you meet, a much as it seems to suck, will be around in your life forever. Some of them do not realise the potential that is there, and that is okay too. They need to learn to make their own mistakes and one day they will understand what they have done and what you had. This doesn’t mean you need or should feel like you want them back in your life, as long as they learn and never do this to anyone else ever again.
Just please promise me this, do not let this break you, do not let this make you hard and bitter. There are so many out there that look too you to make this day a little more magical, a much more fun place to be in. Yes, he is a moron who just easily threw away an amazingly rare thing. This does not mean that finding that amazingly rare thing will not happen for you again. Believe it, you know it will exist again, I know that you feel it here in the deepest depths of me, I know you feel, don’t ever lose that.
Someone like you was never ever meant to end up alone. There is nothing wrong, even in this day and age, to want the one who has your back, the one who will still love you even in the darkest places of your heart, there is nothing wrong with wanting the one who makes your heart smile, the one that even during Winter, will keep you warm and safe, even when they can’t be there, the one who will warm our soul. Most importantly, there is nothing wrong with being single while you find this one, you do not have to date anybody you don’t want too (though we both know it’d much easier that way).
Take these moments day-by-day, hour-by-hour, if you have too. I know it hurts so much right now and you fought so hard just to have it all disappear like it was worth not a thing. I know that you are wishing with all of your heart he had left you alone earlier, or that you had just never met him at all. I know that he has torn, clawed and scratched at every single dream, word and feeling that ever happened.
You will get through this. You will meet someone who will just make your heart dance and your mind sing. All of this will be yours, I promise you. You just cannot let this make you bitter. Your heart is so full of life and love and it is just waiting to burst open with everything that you have to give. Please, do not let this make you bitter and make your heart turn into a well of cement.
