Thoughts of the Day

FB_IMG_1555452930129

Why be weird alone when we can be weird together??

Though if we’re both weird, does that make us normal?

Words can heal or they can hurt, use yours wisely.

Looking for a miracle? Everyday is just that.

Storms change us, sometimes for the better and other times not, but they will change us.

The good things in life will change us too.

Alone, we’re wonderful, but together, we’re so much better.

Beauty isn’t or at least shouldn’t be defined solely on one’s looks. For me anyway, it’s not about how much make-up someone wears, the brand or style of clothing worn, the amount of bling someone wears, how their hair is done, how much they weigh, etc. Upon looking at someone that has outter beauty, I can definitely appreciate it. However, if I see that they’re cold, stuck up, cruel, etc, it’ll be hard to appreciate their outward appearance. Looks fade, but money can’t buy you a moral code or kind heart.

We are not solely one thing. We aren’t easily defined. We are not our pasts. We are not our illnesses. We are not our mistakes. We are not our jobs. We are not the various titles others give us. Yet we are all of those things combined and a lot more. We are made up of our dreams, flaws, strengths, weaknesses, beliefs, talents, emotions, thoughts, lessons learned, pasts, presents, ancestral roots, memories, and choices.

There is often not a “right” time to do things. Sometimes there is a wrong one. Many times though, we just have to decide we want something bad enough that we make a go for it.

Words like always and never should be used carefully. Also, the words love and hate carry a lot of weight and should be used only when truly meant.

Forgiveness isn’t necessarily about freeing someone else, it’s about freeing us from the anger and pain. Both can consume us, many times without realizing it. Forgiveness means letting go and moving forward. It means not bringing it up in the heat of an argument. It means not letting the pain or anger blindside us. It means truly letting go, even when we feel we’re in the right to stay angry and hurt. Free yourself….

We can have different political views, religious beliefs, come from different backgrounds, look different, act and think different, etc and still get along.

I disagree with the statement that respect should be earned and not freely given. I don’t set out to disrespect someone who has not caused me to do so. So, I feel it’s important to give respect first. If it’s not returned, I will still try to be the bigger person. I don’t always win that fight in my head, but I try.

The debates on what foods together make me laugh. You may not like pineapple on pizza or ketchup on your eggs, which is fine, but it’s also fine to like those combinations. It’s all a matter of personal preference. Why are we always finding ways to disagree and make others feel weird for being different? 😉

Art comes in many forms. An artist isn’t simply one who paints, draws, or sculpts. An artist can be a musician, singer, actor/actress, chef, fashion designer/seamstress, software engineer, web designer, interior decorater, teacher, etc. Art lives within us all, in our own ways. Live your art!

Be kind. You never know what another is going through.

Be you. Don’t settle for being like someone else. You’re not meant to be an echo. You’re meant to be you in full force.

Those are my thoughts today. I hope even one of them made you smile, think, or find inspiration. Go out and live the rest of the day to the fullest!

Playground Antics

He plays Pokemon Go and is ridiculed

She likes to color and gets called childish

If you don’t re-post, you’re not a real Christian

Vote for so and so or you’re an idiot

Only people with low IQ’s like reality t.v.

 

We’re quick to post memes bashing on one another

If they don’t agree with me, they’re wrong

And you know I have to point it out for all to see

We say we hate drama, but just how much of it do we put online?

Did we forget we’re the adults and should know better?

 

Sometimes it feels like we’re still on the playground

Picking on those we deem lesser than we are

And then we wonder why there’s so much hatred & violence

We want peace, love, and harmony to prevail

But how often do we prove it by how we treat one another?

 

I’d love to see all hate, ignorance, and intolerance die for just one day

Is it possible to go even one day without seeing venom drip down my screen?

No one is perfect, but we reveal just how much that’s true

When we point out one another’s flaws and try to hide our own

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to stop playing war now.

 

Taking A Stand Against Hate

543572_10151026235186323_634218308_n

This morning on my way to work, I began thinking about the poem I wrote and shared yesterday. It isn’t just religion that divides us. It saddens me that we discriminate, judge, and treat others harshly at all. At the end of the day, we’re all human. Should it really matter what color we are, whether we’re male or female, whether we’re young or old, what side of town we’re from, what country we’re from, what religion (if any) we choose to follow, how much money we make, what our sexual orientation is, who we voted for, what we wear, and so on? It’s sad that people have to worry about colors they wear because gang members might hurt you or even kill you over it because they think you’re from an “enemy clan”. Just because a kid wants to pray, they might get beaten up. In some countries, you get killed for what you believe, for wanting an education, or for even wanting to do things differently than they want you to.

I was always taught to believe that I am not any better than another person. No one is perfect and no one has the right to judge another and religion had nothing to do with those beliefs. My mom isn’t religious at all, but she still taught me to be respectful and kind. The sad thing is people take judgment into their own hands, some even claim it’s in the name of their higher power that they do what they do, that they were called to smite others. I have far from given up on the human race, for I know there is still much good in us. It’s just disheartening to think about how much evil there is in us as well. I wish this world was much kinder than it is. We don’t have to agree with one another or even say that we’re “cool” with how people live, but we certainly do not need to kill one another over our differences. We also do not need to bully one another over it either. We’re all entitled to have our own opinions and if you wish to speak them, do so, but then it would be wonderful if people could leave it at that.

I am not a fool and don’t believe just by wishing it so that it will become that way, but I can wish for it anyway. I can also do my part by doing what it is I want to see from others. I don’t agree with a lot of things and I will tell people how I feel, but I will still extend my hand in friendship and offer compassion. We will never win over the world with war and violence, those who think so are sorely mistaken. I will continue to live my life helping others when I can, being kind, and loving with all I have. I know I am only one person, but they say one person can change the world. Luckily too, I know I am not the only one who feels the way I do. Let’s continue to break the barriers of hate down, not by judging, sitting on our pedestals…no, that only causes more hate. No one is holier than thou and it’s time to stop acting as such. (that is why many boycott religion by the way, because they’re chased away by judgmental behavior.) Stand on level ground with others and watch what the power of kindness and love can do. 🙂

Brangien Illuminated

I am Brangien [Brangaine] of Weisefort, Ireland, lady-in-waiting to my cousin Isolde, who became promised to King Marc of Cornwall. His nephew Tristan escorted us to England by ship. But Tristan and Isolde fell in love at sea. As ye may know, or will find out, they cite the philter they drank as the cause, over which I was supposed to keep vigil. I would like to share my perspective of how I have created good in the world through my herbs and observations. There is much to tell, including how I have adopted this odd language. In good time. My life is in God’s hands. –Inspired by the modern French translations of the Tristan and Isolde texts
