WHAT’S HAPPENING. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth casts its shadow completely over a full moon, blocking reflection of all direct sunlight from the lunar orb and dimming the color of the moon to a reddish hue, hence the term “blood moon.”
Ever since my birthday, I have been inspired people! Inspired! I feel all renewed.
We have a back room, that I want to turn into my own meditative, escape type room. My partner has his own office, at my own house/my mums house. My bedroom there was my safe space. I don’t make enough money to have my own house. But I need a room to meditate, to cry, to be able to feel like I can write in peace.
My partner doesn’t get it, lol.
Do you have a meditation space, or a space where you can feel creative? I really am feeling like I need something like it. What’s in your space?
I have just very recently bought something, I am really looking forward to getting.
It is going to fit in so well with my space, that I am trying to create in my house.
I am extremely for safe spaces. Considering the current global predicaments, I think we all need at least one safe space somewhere. It doesn’t even need to be your bedroom, it can be anywhere. The lounge room, the kitchen, even outside! Sometimes there is nothing nicer than a cup of tea, reading a book outside and listening to the nature.

Usually a lot of my Sims, in the Sims 4 game. I like to create a little space in each house that I would like. So you know a little office, or a Library. Nothing very fancy. I often wonder if they would make … I don’t know what they’re called … But add on items that are meditative. I’m sure it’d be a popular.
This is a lot more classy that my Sims.
I seem to have a thing for space photos, I am coming to realise,lol…Warning, there are 128 slides!
I found a link though to find out a bit more about it if you are considering a move in the near future (Over 100,000 people have signed up to move/colonize Mars 2022!)
For those not interested I have posted a link to Google Mars…Well a bit of it anyways. Whose in?!
I find it really hard to believe that these pictures were true, but they are. Please press the link to see them yourself!
Amazing photos of Mars – MSN news – There are 31 pictures…Enjoy!
Now, I’m not writing about the ones that the Republicans and hard core righters seem to think they are something to make fun. They are interesting things to think about, aren’t they? I was just thinking about this over the weekend. I find it easier to fall asleep with at my partners house, but I find it easier to wake up at my own house.
Safe spaces are definitely not something to make fun of.
I am also finding that my work just in general works for me as well. I think because it helps to keep myself distracted, instead of thinking…thinking……and thinking. Not only do I have different rooms, but just different spaces and things as well. My plushie Savannah and Mufasa, whenever I hug them, I always feel better. Sometimes I will just hug them and not let go for a while. I have a couple of meditation and anxiety apps that I can listen to anywhere, so I guess those are “safe spaces” too?
This is something that might be just me, but has anyone else noticed the hate towards safe spaces recently? Or is it just me?
I mean generally the people making fun or hating on it are white, middle “mentally healthy” class people. This is not meant to be a white people are horrible post, but does seem to be the general norm.
It mainly genuinely confuses me because why do they even care if someone has one? It’s not hurting them or anyone they care about. My bedroom has always been my safe space and let’s be honest who wouldn’t consider their house to be a “safe space”…Unless of course you are actually getting abused in some way of form or other. I think even while you’re attacking someone from behind your computer, do you not do it with more vile, because you feel “safe”? Doesn’t it then make it a “safe space”. How many of these people would actually attack others, face-to-face?
*This was a scheduled post after a random thought I had beginning of last week. I have updated it though to reflect my personal feelings as well about the whole “safe space” and Hamilton/Pence issue*
Too me, I find it an interesting concept to attack and say a “ban” on the play Hamilton for example, because Pence/Trump felt their “safe space” was being attacked EVEN though part of their campaign was attacking safe space. What I find interesting about people saying to “Ban it” What side were these same people on when they wanted to have stricter gun control after people, their own fellow Americans, were being gunned down outside theatres, by Americans. It’s not like a President has ever been gunned down at a theatre…Oh wait…And yet, they think a well worded speech is an attack on safe spaces? Clearly what I think is an attack and what they think is an attack are two completely different things. Just seems a shame that these people don’t think people actually dying in a “safe space” is still enough to do anything about it…But a well worded, and totally within their rights, speech, is enough? Even though America is all about “Freedom of Speech”.
Is someone able to expand my mind on this? Is it just fear mongering?
If you wanted to de-clutter where you live, what room / space would you start with? (And why, if you’re feel like admitting to it.)
This is actually a funny question, I am currently de-cluttering my own room. If I get into a “mood” that is usually where I first go too, I have so much stuff to get rid off and I’m planning on moving out. Also, it just feels like the right time to start getting rid of stuff, there’s a lot of clothes I’ve never worn, that sort of thing. New chapter and all that.
If you want to remember something important, how do you do it (sticky note on the fridge, string around your finger, etc.), and does it work?
I “text myself” and by that I mean, I will write a text message to myself. It does work actually work me. Even if I just write down some key words, and it does seem to work.
If you could create a one room retreat just for yourself, what would be the most important sense to emphasize: sight (bright natural light, dim light, etc.), hearing (silence, music, fountain, etc.), smell (candles, incense, etc), touch (wood, stone, soft fabrics, etc.), or taste (herbal tea, fresh fruit, etc.)?
This is a good question! It would have to smell, there is nothing worse than a horrible smell, it can be really off putting to me. Think about when you open your bin or your fridge and there is some kind of funky smell. I don’t know about anyone else but that instantly puts me off, it makes me instantly tense. A nice smell makes me feel relaxed and happy.
If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?
My family on either side sound completely fascinating, I would love to interview my Great great great grandparents. I would honestly not know who to choose.
