These are my words 2

Bloom

#GOATBAHS  

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.. 😉

download

BOMBS AWAY!

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

ADVANCED RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY.

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.

DO I GET IT YET, HUH?

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.

There are No Flightless Words

“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

One perspective.

:) 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.

ART

https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/35029564/posts/1038216384

Another.

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.

DAISY XOXO

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.

Follow Great Footsteps Inspiration

I don’t know  if any of you wonder why the hell I give so many shout outs. If you do here is  the reason:

It is a really good way to actually get to know the person behind the blog and it builds up more intimacy.

Yes, it involves effort and looking at what others have to say but I’m nosy and far too curious. I want to know everything and everyone. ha ha

Sounds creepy- maybe it is…

If I am ever at a loss to write something – you lot inspire me and I am not some knob head who won’t give credit to my inspiration.

Simple as that!

I know my posts can seem like a mixed bag. I am not one to conventionally follow rules. So mixing things up and  not doing the same thing -the same way -all the time- keeps me interested.

MINI  LIFE UPDATE:

My G goes for his detached retina eye op on Thursday morning. Not sure I will be around much. We will only find out how severe his post recovery surgery will be once they have operated and found where the tear is.

Hen do is on the 21/05- Saturday. I’m terribly  excited.I get to drink cocktails and eat good food!

So ,I still have a couple more quotes to share that people have shared with me on #FollowGreatFootsteps

“READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE FIRST”

Today’s quote made me think a lot. I like to think.

(Singing ‘Arabian Nights’) It comes from a place in a far away land where camels and (forgot words) roam….. – silly Daisy.

The_Artist_No_Seriously.jpg

It comes from   Anna from Life As A Bipolar Artist- A place for venting, explaining, and maybe learning something.

 “Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.”  –EDGAR ALLEN POE 

“Telling the whole terrifying truth certainly does give words power, I think it connects us all in some way or another. Also, I have to appreciate the phrase “exquisite horror” from an author who clearly loved his dark side, despite the trouble and struggle it caused for him:)

ANNA 

Why do I love Anna?

Because she expresses her darkness with such finesse that it almost seems like a great place to be.

Her art and her exquisite expression of all things malade, make me   feel drawn to  visit  ‘the Maison de Sante’, like some character called Doctor Tarr  The methods of expression(treatment if you like)  employed are intriguing .

Then,

to find out that this place  lets the patients revel in their madness and are at liberty to roam free  is  even more fascinating.

The true horror is to find that the asylum has been  over thrown by its patients. The lunatics are posing as the professionals.

A great idea in theory but not something I think I would enjoy in practice.

 Read Poes -fine piece The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether by Edgar Allan Poe (published 1856).

What I have learned about Anna is just how easy it is to misinterpret what a person means in their writing. I am not at liberty to explain this  cryptic part of my post, as it genuinely is not my my story to tell. I am merely a character in it.

I can show you this is how I became involved in Anna’s journey – I clicked on this The beginning of Terror 

and saw this.

Anna said:

“This will be my last post for a little while, so I thought I’d leave you with a sense of how I’m feeling with this picture. It was inspired by some strong feelings, the kind that are strong enough to leave you numb. I don’t like to admit when I am feeling less like myself than usual”

What I learned from this post.

If some one says they are going somewhere or won’t be in touch for a while have the sense to ask why.

THANK YOU ,Anna for joining in

publication11Finally, I won’t get a chance to give all the new flowers in the community a shout out on Thursday so this is the part of my  post that is full of inspiration and community and awesome epicness.
