Every time our Governments seem to do something at the moment, it is just disastrous for the people for the countries. What can you say, when you don’t have the power? All I honestly keep thinking of is this…
Day 28 … A song by a artist whose voice you love
I just love all of their voices
Celtic Woman – Tir na nOg ft Oonagh
Day 29 … A song you remember from your childhood
I feel if you didn’t listen to this man, and you’re Australian … Did you even have a childhood?
Peter Combe – Newspaper Mama … 1988
Day 30 … A song that reminds you of yourself.
The one and only…
Enya – Wild Child
You know I’ve been thinking a lot, dangerous, I know…Hahahaha!
I just wanted to write a public thank you to letter to some ex-friends of mine.
Without them doing, doing what they did. I don’t think I would have ever found the voice I am gaining right now. Before I stopped being friends with them “officially”, I was trying to figure out I could get out of a group that I realised hadn’t grown up since high school, and was…probably still is…Extremely toxic.
I didn’t actually end the friendship myself, they did that. I wrote a note the year I had a really big panic attack, on New Years. Saying what I had been through, where I was. How I needed to get out, how I didn’t want to be left behind anymore. Then a couple of days after that I actually checked my Facebook, “Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, the accusations!” How it was me who had been treating people horribly, they didn’t like the way I had treated them…And the block…Because of my course my ONLY question would have been “WTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?”.
Since then, the ONLY regret I’ve had in life was not letting go earlier on. Sitting there knowing full well what one particular girl was trying to do. Regretting, not ending the friendships when I actually wanted too.
Now, when the fight that happened, happened. I didn’t immediately want to end the friendships then. It was about a year later, when I realised, everything that they accused of being the “problem”. They didn’t actually want to try and fix those problems. When the fight first happened, it made me go…
Wow, how had I not seen this toxicity, until now?
Since that regretful time, I have found that I don’t like wasting time not telling people anymore where I stand with them.
Although this not an official holiday, I do like the idea of this day.
Here is The Universal Peace Covenant
Peace is the breath of our spirit.
It wells up from within the depths of our being to refresh, to heal, to inspire.
Peace is our birthright.
Its eternal presence exists within us as a memory of where we have come from and as a vision of where we yearn to go.
Our world is in the midst of change.
For millennia, we have contemplated, reasoned, and practiced the idea of peace. Yet the capacity to sustain peace eludes us. To transcend the limits of our own thinking we must acknowledge that peace is more than the cessation of conflict. For peace to move across the face of the earth we must realize, as the great philosophers and leaders before us, that all people desire peace. We hereby acknowledge this truth that is universal. Now humanity must desire those things that make for peace.
We affirm that peace is an idea whose time has come.
We call upon humanity to stand united, responding to the need for peace. We call upon each individual to create and foster a personal vision for peace. We call upon each family to generate and nurture peace within the home. We call upon each nation to encourage and support peace among its citizens. We call upon each leader, be they in the private home, house of worship or place of labor, to be a living example of peace for only in this way can we expect peace to move across the face of the earth.
World Peace begins within ourselves.
Arising from the spirit peace seeks expression through the mind, heart, and body of each individual. Government and laws cannot heal the heart. We must transcend whatever separates us. Through giving love and respect, dignity and comfort, we come to know peace. We learn to love our neighbors as we love ourselves bringing peace into the world. We hereby commit ourselves to this noble endeavor.
Peace is first a state of mind.
Peace affords the greatest opportunity for growth and learning which leads to personal happiness. Self-direction promotes inner peace and therefore leads to outer peace. We vow to heal ourselves through forgiveness, gratitude, and prayer. We commit to causing each and every day to be a fulfillment of our potential, both human and divine.
Peace is active, the motion of silence, of faith, of accord, of service.
It is not made in documents but in the minds and hearts of men and women. Peace is built through communication. The open exchange of ideas is necessary for discovery, for well-being, for growth, for progress whether within one person or among many. We vow to speak with sagacity, listen with equanimity, both free of prejudice, thus we will come to know that peace is liberty in tranquility.
Peace is achieved by those who fulfill their part of a greater plan.
Peace and security are attained by those societies where the individuals work closely to serve the common good of the whole. Peaceful coexistence between nations is the reflection of man’s inner tranquility magnified. Enlightened service to our fellowman brings peace to the one serving, and to the one receiving. We vow to live in peace by embracing truths that apply to us all.
Living peaceably begins by thinking peacefully.
We stand on the threshold of peace-filled understanding. We come together, all of humanity, young and old of all cultures from all nations. We vow to stand together as citizens of the Earth knowing that every question has an answer, every issue a resolution. As we stand, united in common purpose, we hereby commit ourselves in thought and action so we might know the power of peace in our lifetimes.
Peace be with us all ways. May Peace Prevail On Earth.

I thought that I would start this new Category of “Learn something new every day (or week). I thought since I am always preaching about learning something new every day, I thought that I’d start sharing something new that I’ve learnt during the week. I could try posting something every day, but we all know that I could NEVER keep that up! Now, you may be aware of what I write about, but to me it’s new and to others it could be as well. I encourage everyone to share what they know about what I write about.
Welcome to my very new post of “Learn something new every week”!
I wanted to start off with happy facts, since it’s been such a weird couple of weeks and it seems like there has been very little happiness out there lately.
Did you know that Cat’s don’t generally meow to each other? They generally only meow to human beings. When they “speak” with each other it’s generally through eye contact, body language and smell.
We’ve all had one, haven’t we? That person that we want, that person we can’t have, the one that we can never have? You’re not in love with them and you’re not planning or are going to cheat on your current partner, but you can’t help but think about them. What would it be like to be with them, just one night with them? Even when you’re single and you still can’t have them, you want them, they’re the one you think of during the night, the one that “helps” you to get over your heart break.
I feel really terrible, with my fantasy guy, I could never have him. But I really want him, even for just one night. Even when we were both single and even before I met the guy I’m with now, I can’t have him and I really wanted him. You see, I woke up to hear him singing one morning and I don’t think he knew that I was there. He has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard and he plays the guitar…but I was lying there, completely falling for his voice, and at the same time I was lying right next to my partner, at the time.
I had laid there so still, as to not wake up my (now ex) partner and I just listened to this amazinginly beautiful voice signing one of my favourite songs of all time and strumming his guitar. Soak through the thin walls and into my mind and I haven’t been able to shake it out of their since. He’s been the one that I sing about in the shower, he’s the one that I think about in the darkness of the night and this will be the only time I ever tell about it to another soul.
There is nothing worse than a fantasy lover that you can never have.
The one who makes you feel like this… (the song that inspired me to write this post)
