Who Is At Fault?

Not a day goes by where I don’t wonder about what this world is coming to and what it will be like for my children, grandchildren, all children. Did my parents scratch their heads when I come out of my room dressed the way I was? Was I really dressed so outrageous compared to some of today’s teens? I don’t recall any one in my teen years having so many piercings as they are today. I don’t recall living a mall life. I don’t recall having tons of money given to me by my parents, like kids receive today. I don’t recall being given lunch money daily.
I do recall a small allowance, brown bagging a lunch, babysitting to have pocket money, having chores to do on the weekend before I even thought of leaving the house.
And what about the boldness of so many teens, the lack of respect for their elders. And that, want want want attitude. Oh my lawd! I don’t think I be alive today if I talked or treated my parents, family elders the way kids do today
So lets pick apart the child/teen of today. 1st impression is with the eyes. Yes we know we can inherit our parents features, whether it be height, weights, eye colors, hair colors, nose shape and even those knobby knees or big ears. They even say now a lot of our illness are inherited. That I believe, because I see my Mother unfolding in front of me..lol.. in many ways.
But what about, personality. Can we be the cause of our children’s attitudes today? Is it our fault they have lost touch with the realities of life. Unlike our own parents did we leave the flood gates open by not setting boundaries??? Have we let them loose into a crazy world for a greater percent of 24 hours in the day instead of having more family and all the personality that comes with a family who is close, who respects each other, home and property. But most of all, respect for themselves!
Welllllll…lol…According to university studies, personality is 70% inherited and 30% environmentally influenced.
Lets think about that one.. not too long though!..lol
Whatcha think eh?

And The Sun Rises….

Good morning! Blessed to have wakened and thankful my days start the same…very quiet with low music..no words..just the music setting the tone I need to get my mind body and spirit awake.
Slowly my thoughts come into perspective..thoughts and chants regarding serenity I need in my life and thoughts for my family and friends who may be needing serenity, as well as candles burning (when in my own home) for loved ones passed over.

The first hour of my day is all about spirit..mine..yours ..Mother Earth and Father Sky.  I shall read and depending on whats happening in my world..it changes to a degree.

Today and every day…. I wish you harmony and balance..nothing but joy and serenity..because that is the kind of people I need in my life. Selfish little witch eh..lol

Do what you will and harm come to none! With support of my Pagan faith my chant and prayers are for everyone!

Mature Love As The Snow Flies

The only thing I love about winter is watching the snow fall. It always inspired me, deeply. This morning I have been thinking a lot..lol.. it is my favorite past time… thinking, writing and of course loving. So many loves, grand baby love, my children love, family love, friendship love and 2nd to none, my Man love.. xx.. I like to think we have a mature love And, I don’t think Mature Love has anything to do with age. I think it has to do with, experience. We both have the integrity to be alone, which is being honest and whole together and apart. We both give without strings and grateful for that because we have different giving strengths. It is a love that when apart, our alone times does not destroy togetherness, in fact it enhances it. Yes, the first day or 2, I miss him so much, but on the 3rd day, I smile because I look forward to being together again. We help each other become more free. There is no effort given to dominating each other, we actually hop past that thinking, because it can become a sort of hatred and anger. We were individuals when we met and that is who we each fell in love with, so why not encourage that time alone, that individuality, which leaves so much more room to grow, alone and together. Who knows, there may be a day down the road where we will want to be in each others space so much more, but I think again, we are mature enough, that does not mean to smoother each other… respect, understanding and truly listening.. in one word.. Communication!

Moderation Is Key!

I am one of those people, well, maybe I am only the one of the people I am talking about.. lol.. I doubt that. I don’t feel I am unique in every way and the way that I am unique, I won’t tell you about, that my friend, is what makes me unique. There are some things I do not need the approval of being, by any one, on this planet. So I have that little bit of mystery, which I think we all should have, mystery.
I have learnt over the years, the thing to enjoying life, no matter what it is, food, family, friends, people in general, activities, physical, mental and emotional standards is, MODERATION. I know I am the only one who can supervise my wants, needs and cravings. By the time we are 19, we should have some grasp on that, I think, but yet not always. I believe it is because life can toss shit our way, that saying, the shit hit the fan? Its unexpected and can set you back, however, all we need to do is get back on track.
I love, hot dogs! So instead of eating 8 hot dogs, which includes the bun and the wiener.. (wink) there’s an inside joke with that statement.. lol..I will eat one a day for 8 days and voila, its out of my system. C’mon, think of it, 8 hot dogs in one sitting would make me puke, but one a day, makes me smile. The same goes for my favorite chocolate bar, Big Turk.  Too many in one sitting would make me sick, but one Big Turk a day, makes me happy with a little sugar high.
So now, you see the method to my madness. After 8 days of having what I love, is not an overload at all, but learning to live a life of moderation, so when the time comes again, in 6 months to a year when those cravings pop up, I will moderate myself and enjoy spoiling that craving for 8 days.
Life is too darn short to rob ourselves of the devilish desires and cravings. Live life to the fullest! Just do it in moderation. Yes, even with love. I can love long and hard, but yet again, I have learnt how to take a breather and give my partner a breather.  Then it seems not to be going stale or making us sick…lol…  we can love other with all our hearts and unconditionally, that does not mean we have to be by their side 24/7.. remember, too much of a good thing, is probably not such a good thing. 🙂
Now where is that hot, Big Turk and my Dream Man at this morning!

Honey!?, You wouldn’t have chocolate hidden some where in your house, eh? 😉
