#195 Is it worthwhile to give? by Cerrato Mom

Is it better to give or to receive was the blog title. I loved her post. What’s better? To give or to get? When I’m stuck in my head, one the things that really helps me get out of it is giving. It helps me to get out of my own head, and see the world around me. The people around me. The colour around me. Giving is definitely one of my reasons to live.

Last week I found myself in a bit of a rut. I was feeling sorry for myself for silly reasons. So what did I do? I decided to do something nice for somebody else…and guess what? I instantly felt better. It’s amazing how our mind set can change when we take the focus off of […]

Giving is what gives meaning, and purpose, and makes it worthwhile. For life, on its’ own, never seems worthwhile to me. But to give? To be? That definitely gives it some meaning, purpose, and reason.

So long as there’s life, there’s hope. Let’s make the world a better place!

Love, light and glitter

Family, Reason 194, Tamara Yancosky

Family –

Whether near, or apart,

my family is always in my heart.
.
My family is my life, and my life is my family.

My words can never come close to conveying my love for each of my family members, and neither can my actions. But, if they could reach into my heart, they would understand the depth of my love for each of them.
My family is my purpose of life.

Letter to myself: 15th November ’19

Dear Eliza

You don’t want to say hello to me. You don’t want to see what is for you’re scared. Although, what is (going on), is so good. There’s nothing to be afraid of. Even if it weren’t good, you’re strong enough to handle it. Plus you’ve got me with you always. You never have to be afraid. You’ll never have to face this world alone. You’ll always have me.

I love you Eliza. And I’m with you always.

I do wonder what is going on in your world. I feel locked out, although I know you’re locking yourself out too. For hiding behind a blanket means there is nothing beyond the blanket, right? I don’t think there are any monsters under the bed, but you’re scared anyways. You’re scared because you don’t know for certain that their aren’t. And, if you look under the bed, you may find a ball of fluff, and some dust, which is really easy to clean up. You may also find a monster. A monster which will grab hold of you and pull you under the be with it as soon as it glimpses you.

Eliza, if that happens, if the monster under the bed takes you, I’ll take you back. I’ll help you to fight the monster and destroy it. Or, as they said in krav maga, to defend yourself and run away. Don’t engage when you don’t need to.

You can’t hide under the covers for eternity. It would be cool if you could but that’s not even what you want. You don’t know what is under the bed. You’re scared of seeing. I promise you it isn’t as big or scary as you think it is. Even if it is, we’ll handle it. We can’t face it or deal with it if we don’t know what is there. When you’re ready.

When you’re ready Eliza. We will wait. I will wait for you, and I’ll stay with you. We’ll look under the bed together. And we’ll probably see that there was nothing there.

You’re scared of seeing what is. You’re on edge and some of the things you’re doing – like eating too much junk, throwing up when you do, reading xxx, aren’t positive and you think that’s a bad sign. You don’t want to know what is going on in your world.

At the same time Eliza, at the same time you’re trying out things. You’re taking care of yourself. You’re spending time with friends and being honest. You’re looking at volunteering, exercise and new opportunities.

The world is a mixture. All that you are doing shows me that you’re okay and that you can face why you’re not being perfect with food. Coz you’re normal and not perfect?

When you’re ready.

I love you Eliza. I love you as you’re present. I love you when you aren’t, too. I love you as you eat good/healthy things. I love you as you try not to purge, or you do. I love you when you’re calm. I love you when you’re freaking out. I love you Eliza. I love you always. I will love you always. Just as I’ll be with you always. You’re worth it. You’re special and awesome. You’re deserving.

Always and forever,

Shabbat shalom Eliza,

Eliza

More Amazing Street Art — Mitch Teemley #192

Street art #192.

The awesomeness of this. I loved Mitch’s post sharing this work because it really is amazing!! We look around us and see so much awesomeness, sometimes it’s natural, sometimes it’s manmade.

Temporary, permanent, sweet, shocking, whimsical, thoughtful… Art can be anything, I think, except boring. And while a picture may be worth a thousand words, it is much more than mere information. It speaks to a different part of our selves. Art is more of a waking dream than a speech, and it should never be […]
