Just something to think about…

 

Did you know the people who are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the one who takes care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most?

Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are I love you, I’m sorry, and Help me.

Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile to see how much pain they may be in.

To all my friends who are going through some issues right now. Let’s start an intention avalanche. We all need positive intentions right now. May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy and paste this status for one hour to give a moment…

10 ways to tell if you are turning into a depressed Atlantic Puffin…

Thought Scratchings

1)      You are persistently sad, anxious and feel empty inside. Invisible even – this, despite noticing that your nose turns a brilliant orange when thinking about sex.

2)      You find yourself taking long baths and, during these baths, you push the water away from you so the water comes back in small waves. Despite sitting in small waves of your own making, you feel hopeless and pessimistic.

3)      You visit the local swimming pool, and discover you can fly like a bird underwater. This should be amazing. Or at least petrifying. Instead you feel guilty and worthless. You take a hot shower for an hour afterwards, and later consider cutting yourself with a sharp blade, to feel something again.

4)      You have a loss of interest and pleasure in hobbies you once enjoyed, like sex. Instead of masturbating to online porn, you find yourself pecking small herrings out of your…

WordPress Awards Build a Supportive Community

Wayne Dyer Quote

This is just a brief post to address WordPress awards. I was recently nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by my fellow WordPress blogger, Valeriu dg Barbu and was happy to participate. Although I currently have many irons in the fire, I decided it was worth the effort to join in, post my award and nominate 15 of the bloggers I was currently following (there have been several more wonderful bloggers since then). I truly believe that it’s important to network and encourage other writers in order to build a supportive writing community. Thanks so much to those of you who responded and decided to participate as well. I know it takes a certain amount of time and I truly appreciate your taking that time out of your busy schedules to join in.  I wanted to do this as a way to let you to know that I really am following you, and not simply clicking the follow button. I hope everyone’s day is filled with Peace, Love and Happiness!

Five Tips for Creating a Romantic Staycation

Malia Mallory ~~~~~~~~~ Author

Need_200x300You’d like to get away for a long weekend – away from the job, the kids and the stress. You’d also like to spend some quality time with your honey, but, if you’re like me, perhaps there’s no one to watch the little one or money is in short supply.

So what can you do?

The concept of a staycation has been with us for a few years. Forego the plane tickets and hotel rooms and save some money. Bypass the time and hassle of traveling and help your local economy. These are great concepts, but I want to offer a particular staycation idea. These suggestions are designed to foster quality time with your significant other – giving you the opportunity to reconnect. We know what that leads to right?

1.  Commit to no work – really. No emails, no cell phone, no texts, no checking in with the…
