This guy can do no wrong in terms of creating a textured, engaging soundscape.
I’m trying to incorporate WRAP into my life.
My mental health took an obnoxious downturn.
The way I’m seeing life at this moment is that by having self-awareness of what keeps me well & knowing what my triggers.
Thus educating myself, Reinforces it into my brain by questioning what I’ve thought about . This helps me to organise the structure of my thoughts.
This will lead to knowing what structured thoughts to keep & discard.
Filter them more rationally.
Weed the garden in a manner of speaking.
I digressed a long time ago.
Wellness tools ?
What makes me happy?
Being around my daughter. Laughing with her and being more chilled.
By being more savvy and economical with money, I’m able to focus on my business with the retro clothes & handbags.
I’m wanting to engage with people in diferent ways again. I’m prepared to read and listen more to what other people say.
The sun shine is an element not to be underestimated in its ability to awaken our body and mind.
I’m communicating with my husband more. We have made plans to go out as a family . A simple movie & meal.
Time spent with the people I adore is time well spent.
This leads me on to my triggers that I’m falling back into my old ways.
Drinking too much/ any alcohal.
How I feel and respond or react to how I feel about myself after eating with my body issues ?
With an Eating disorder ( and like many illnesses), the only time people like you & me have a break is when we sleep.
If we sleep?
Sleep is a huge trigger for how I function.
It’s the only time we get a break from out thoughts & our life whom we share with others.
Willingly or unwillingly.
Please, fly with those birds who scintillate your soul into an exquisite murmuration.
Is it a blessing or a curse having insight into our various issues?
I’m keeping busy.
The sun is shining & I have a purpose.
Life is tough. I love to find the happiness that comes with the simple pleasure that my family and I deserve.
“I don’t take part in these kinds of actions near enough, so here it goes. Here’s my quote. Since I’m not wired to share other’s quotes but infrequently, this is one of my own:
“Change your attitude and you will change your altitude.” I’m curious to see what you will do with this one. Bombs away!“ ART ( ADVANCED RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY-life within life)
THANK YOU for being a part of #FollowGreatFootsteps
The first thing that popped into my mind when I read this is GAME ON! It’s just the banter that myself and ART have as Blogging friends.
The next thing that came into my mind is Art needs to go and check out a festival called drop beats not bombs but I guess that came way too easy.. 😉
He has a beat..
Oh, he has a beat…..
Some blogs are easier for me to describe. ART’s is not. This is a nickname he allowed me to use for him .Considering the the “woah this is some heavy shit we are talking about” topics I expected to have with him and his Bloggers
I did not think I would have anything in common when we started chatting but don’t judge a blog by it’s title …
No he is not some guru who is trying to get you to convert to some new religion. His posts are challenging and baffling and I so want to understand it all that -I am drawn back – again and again.
Start hanging around this dudes Blog and you will feel that heavy attitude shift and just like you that ;
You will rise to higher altitudes with a free mind – truly open to discussion.
One thing I can say is ,ART is a true conversationalist.
I didn’t start Blogging just to get likes. I want to converse and learn new shit. Sometimes that means saying.
“I’m not even half way close to understanding but this is what I do think!”
There is no right or wrong – only a matter of perspective and ART does write from a different perspective with flair.
So,I am coming in from a different perspective and giving you an insight into the different types of thinkers we have discussing or commenting or just reading in ARTS blog .
A recent post of his.
“Words are spirit, and carry the life of the the one expressing them, within them.” ~ART
At risk of irreverence … God said “My word goes forth from My mouth and it will not return to Me void” … elsewhere, He said “let us create man in our image” … so if His word goes forth and returns to Him having completed the work He sent them forth to accomplish – and we are made in His image – we ought to be very mindful of the words we send forth.
How I hope and pray there are no foul words out there winging their way back to me with a load for the dropping …
A COMMENT FROM SOME ONE WHO READ ARTS QUOTE
I’ll put the smiley face first on this one, as that is the reaction your comment initially stirred.
However, you hit on something very deep. Whenever God speaks, it is done through a man. There is a whole Book to prove it.
The relationship between God and man is not one of distinctiveness, but of overlapping Spirit.
In the Book, it is actually the Word inspired by Almighty, but penned by man, that does not return void.
So it is all in the inspiration, or Spirit behind the words, that determines the outcome of what is sent forth.
So again, at the risk of irreverence, what we send forth in the Spirit IS the Word. If we occupy this position, we should expect the intended outcome.
My thoughts. I feel I can’t compete with half of what ART speaks about but he makes me want to understand. And that is a good thing.
So here is me jumping in the conversation like I do on most blogs I follow (with my “un evolved” answer)
so much power in words. I don’t speak like you folk do but – there is something to be said for conscious thought and deliverance of words. I believe even in spirit there needs to come with it a great deal of discipline -especially those who use these words of THE ALMIGHTY or what-ever to educate or influence. I believe intention has a lot to do with it too.
What I love about engaging with this blog is:
I don’t feel stupid.
I feel I can put what I understand down and that is what is important.
We all have to come to a point of understanding from some source. The start is always the best source – I’ve found I soemtimes get more things than others but shit does get clearer.
I like to keep my mind open and challenged.
This is one of the great blogs I follow which does indeed do that.

“A silly proverb in my place is “that you should always treat your towel very kindly because the part that wiped your ass today, might wipe your face tomorrow.”“ – JACQUELINE OBYLKAKOCHA
Trust the lovely Jaque from a cooking pot and twistedtales Thoughts and Tales Etc..A Lifestyle Blog with a Zing.
I have been reading some of your lovely Bloggers posts this morning . I have also been feeling a bit not such a happy chappy of late.
So this proverb has some serious truth in it added with Jaque’s signature zing of humour injected into it. I wouldn’t have expected her to leave her mark in being part of my #FollowGreatFootsteps without making sure she made my facial expression contort
I would like to add that perhaps when we clean our cloth make sure we put it on a hotter wash and add a bit more softener- just in case. Better to be safe than sorry, right? 😉

She makes up her own quotes. She has inspired me to start doing my own.
She is full of wisdom and has a wicked sense of humour.
She does not come across as a lady who suffers fools gladly.

“At the end of each month, we have a blog bash, that offers the opportunity to meet, greet and mingle with other bloggers new and old.
It’s been a proven success that helps to facilitate better cohesion of bloggers as well as driving your blogs growth.”

This Dame is a lady I look up to. I admire her femaleness. She empowers me as a female, that anything is possible with hard work and a bit of creativity. She is also an incredible support of my own endeavours and a friend.
