This Site involves several choices that allow you to select the content you want and ignore the rest. I am not a one dimensional character. Sometimes I write in a spiritual vein, sometimes humour, sometimes I want to rant about something that is going on. So I do. Because this is my blog and I can BUT for those who can’t handle a full meal deal, you get to have bite size pieces of me. Choose the category you are interested in and everything else goes away. If you want it all, just browse the normal feed.
Quotes: Daily Quotes, Quotes from Posters, all searchable by Author and broad categories.
Empowering: inspirational, motivational, empowering thoughts and ideas, including the “Today’s Food For Thought” Series. I have had a life filled with events that sent me on a journey of self discovery. I am spiritual/ NOT religious. I believe we are all powerful, we all have talents and abilities that if we are supported to discover, can save this world. I believe it is all of our jobs to help one another do that and I know that there are simple, practical ways to accomplish exactly that. We all need support and encouragement. Share. Your story is important. We are all important.
Commentary: social commentary, political, current events, rants. I have strong opinions and love a good discussion. I love people who are willing to share educated opinions and tell me how they arrived at their conclusions. How we think and why we think the way we do is beyond fascinating. I am open minded, love learning about people and situations. Only one rule, stick to the topic and leave the personal attacks of others at home.
Humour: me in all my unbridled insanity, not for the faint of heart, or the easily offended, or the cry babies. Being able to laugh about life has saved me from so many tragedies that I treasure the ability to see the humour in EVERYTHING. Mostly I laugh at myself. Oh, and of course everything I write is absolutely true!
Miscellaneous: Every once in awhile I just share something about a trip or an event or life stuff . . . like maybe I will cook or knit something someday … it goes here. These things don’t really fit in the other drawers – think of it as the junk drawer of my blog … except it is nicely organized and there are no fur balls, dead bugs, pens that don’t write or odd tools of some sort.
I have specific things that are dear to my heart, and wanted to have all the information in one place. Many of the postings will not be mine, but shared info from other sites. I hope people will find these helpful, inspiring, and that you will participate in the discussion.
The Standing Village: “It Takes a Village to Raise A Child?” The Village is not doing a very good job, so perhaps we need to get off our butts and stand for what we believe in. In particular I am targeting Family Courts and Parental Alienation Syndrome. Kids are suffering at the hands of the very people who are supposed to be helping them.
The Compassion Network: Anything and everything that motivates us towards compassion for life and one another. Compassion is the strongest emotion we have. We have discovered that our emotions impact our DNA and therefore our bodies, our health and the world for good or bad. Compassion stands alone as having the greatest measurable impact. It has the power to heal our world.
Invisible Scars: Abuse Survivors get a life sentence, regardless of whether their abusers are caught or punished. If nothing else, their stories have to stand as witness to the damage. We have to stop Child Abuse. We have to talk about it. We have to name names and be willing to speak up. No more turning away.
