Do you think there is such a thing as a ‘gendered’ brain?
I believe that we all have a bit of a gendered brain. Some just happen to have more than gender than another gender. What does it even mean to have a gendered brain? Do boys have a more “masculine” gendered brain?

What is the silliest fear you have?
Ones I have now are probably too personal to write about on WordPress at this moment in time. When I was little though, I used to fear red apples, because of a certain little movie.

Out of your family members, who are you closest to?
Maybe lame, but I am probably closest to my Mum now, these days. It used to be my Grandmother, but unfortunately she’s starting to become a bit angry. She’s kind of always been a little grumpy, but she’s started making catastrophes out of nothing. We think something happened to her, but she wont tell us what. Mum and I have gotten closer and a lot more honest with each other in the last couple of years.
What is something you’ll NEVER do again?
I will never waste my time or my life again worrying about toxic people and toxic friendships (relationships are just a given, but I don’t see us breaking up anytime soon with my current partner. I love him and it’s the healthiest relationship I’ve ever had).
Gratitude and Thankfulness
If you’d like, please share a photo or a comment about something good that’s happened recently! Thanks!
I made myself take a mental health day. I haven’t felt I’ve needed one for such a long time and it’s okay to have one day every now and then.

Share Your Thankful World, Nov 19, 2018
Are you an Early to bed, early to rise person, a night owl and day sleeper/dozer, or an ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ person?
I am definitely not an early to rise person. I was more an night owl for years and then I got sick and I get tired so early these days. Since I’ve started slowly coming off the tablets though, I have been feeling more awake again. Not this week though, I’m pmsing,lol…I do normally get a bit more emotional, but not angry and I get tired.
What are some misconceptions about your hobby, should you have a hobby?
I guess my Hobby is playing computer games and colouring in. I sometimes write…I don’t know what my Hobbies are!lol…I just do them, if that makes sense?
A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?
Aliens have landed…do they come in peace?
Yes…but they think we are completely odd,lol
What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week?
We don’t “celebrate” Thanksgiving here, in Australia. However, we’ve been getting a lot of the Black Fridays ‘benefits’. ie, we’ve been getting online black Friday sales all week, great for Christmas shopping!
I have been through SO much this past year and I have ended up in the hospital twice, feeling extremely silly but still terrified. I have seen my local GP quiet a few times in the last year as well…Might as well get everything done this year. Due to working casually I’ve had to reschedule a lot of appointments.
Nurses are just as important as Doctors and a lot of times, they are sometimes even more helpful. Nurses (both male and female) are the front line of the medicine world. They are usually the ones at the front dealing with hostile and aggressive patients.
There are have been Nurses who I’ve wanted to personally thrown out the door. If I had been there. I will never forget the stories my mum told me about this one nurse when my Grandfather was dying from emphysema. If I had been there, there would be no more nurse…Let me tell you!
The rest of the Nurses and Doctors were great. I appreciate them, there’s always going to be one! In every group, there’s always one.
51. 100 things to be thankful for…I got up to 20 because I am grateful for a lot in my life, but it’s so hard to think of 100 individual things.
- Honestly, just feel grateful to be alive and starting to feel a lot better.
- My family…They have helped me to not feel so alone and isolated through all the horrible things this year.
- SafariLive just in general – YouTube clip.
- I am SO thankful for music! Whatever mood I am in, it can either make me feel better or make me feel like someone out there has gone through what I have and I don’t feel so alone.
- I am definitely grateful for living in Australia, everything’s a little nutty. I still think we are pretty lucky here in Australia.
- I am grateful for being able to have a nice shower when I can.
- I am grateful for everybody I have met…Good or Bad…They’ve taught me something that’s made me stronger.
- I guess I’ll go with I am also grateful for every good and bad situation anymore.
- I am grateful that I got a couple of years with my Great Grandfather. Even those couple of years have influenced me my whole life.
- I am glad that Net Neutrality has not come up in Australia…Seriously, that stuff is whack!
- I am VERY grateful that my partner lives near a cafe that looks out onto man-made wetland. It’s not perfect, but it’s a great place to walk around and get out.
- I am so grateful for my pets! I like to call them both my “unofficial anxiety helper animals”. They have helped me out so much! What makes me sad is that they’ll never know!
- I am glad that I even have one thing to be grateful about.
- I am glad my country isn’t voting about Net Neutrality, or against it.
- I am grateful for technology keeping me in touch with family and friends overseas (even if social media can be toxic at times).
- I am grateful that I am able to walk by myself. Ever since my panic attack I have taken up walking nearly every day (some days are just too hot at the moment). Walking was my first way out of the house and decreasing my chances of getting agoraphobia on top as everything else as well.
- I am grateful that I actually have at least one thing to be grateful for.
- I am grateful that I can read.
- I am grateful for my ability to have a backbone and stand up for what I believe!
- I am glad for the heart that I have. It’s a kind one.
So as part of my thinking more positive week, I wanted to post a couple of Blogs and say thank you to a couple of people who I think don’t think get thanked as often as they should. People you probably might not even think of when you want to thank someone.
Chemist – I would to say a BIG thank you to my local Chemist. Over the last couple of years my health has been up and down and all over the place. As someone who is not used to be sick this much, it’s very frustrating and my last two “big” illnesses have been not life threatening in any way, but they are annoying and have made life more difficult for myself. When I’ve gone to my Doctors to get help, when I’ve had enough. They either would not listen to what I thought the problem was or they didn’t think it was debilitating enough, to really help me. My last illness, they stuffed up the test results and because I was sick, I couldn’t really get there and then got three completely different answers about what I could do. Which made my anxiety worse.
The reason I wanted to say a big thank you to my Chemist is because they’ve actually helped me. They gave me things to make the pain and anxiety lessen. Little bit by little bit everything has slowly gotten better. If I had been left with the Doctor, I would have had to fight everything alone and never probably found what was wrong with me. It really has made me distrust Doctors a lot, although I will still go. I will probably ask my Chemist for a second opinion as well.
I’ve wanted to say Thank you to my Chemist for a long time and I want to send them something to say Thank you, but I have no idea what I want to send them? Any ideas? What would be appropriate?
So the day is here! Watch out for the #1000Speak hashtag today and promote it!
1000 bloggers to write posts about compassion, kindness, support, caring for others, non-judgement, care for the environment etc, and ALL PUBLISH ON THE SAME DAY (Feb 20th) to flood the Blogosphere with GOOD! Use the hashtag #1000Speak to promote this event.
I have a lot to be thankful for today, I am finally ending my work full-time (so yay!) but not only that my brother is coming down and is visiting for the weekend too, so I am really happy about that too =D It has definitely put me in the right mood!
Compassion to me is a very interesting concept mainly because the world seems like an interesting mix of what we individually think Compassion is. How in one moment we think what we are doing is compassionate then realise in the next moment maybe we are not as compassionate as we first thought we were. I have always felt that I cannot be compassionate when I am not taking care of myself first. Even with this though sounds like a selfish deed. I cannot take care of others when I feel like my own life is under so much pressure.
In this moments though that when we really face what matters to us and who matters to us. Every single one of us the ability to be compassionate, we just have to discover what is important to us. The most important thing though is to remind yourself to be kind to yourself. I have always believed though that you cannot be there for others if you are not kind to yourself first.
Though I am not a religious person the most compassionate person I think of when I think of “Compassion” is the Dalai Lama and I think that his teachings could teach us all a lot!
Now I am an Australian so we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here.
However, I met my first serious relationship through the internet and he lives in America and we were together for a good three years, but we were young and I didn’t want to leave my family for good and he didn’t want to give up his life either. I do question my decision sometimes after the past few years of disaster relationship after another though,lol
We are still good friends though and I am thankful for that, he’s been helping me get through my most recent disaster. He broke up with is partner about a month after mine, so we both are in the exact same place. Not wanting a relationship. For this I am thankful and I am very thankful for all of my friends in America. The opened me up to a whole new world and I always miss America every day. Sometimes I think they get me better than my friends in Australia. It was a huge freeing experience and one I am never going to ever forget. I look through my photo album from that time at least once a week.
I have plans to go back there at least one more time. It will probably be my last time, unless I was win the lottery or something.
