Too Many Bumps Or Mood Swings

I’d call any kind of emotional outburst (negative emotions) a mood swing or a bump.

With Corona, I generally get more bumps than usual.

I have made it a practice to take a mood swing or pump moment to calm down and take stalk of my state of mind.

Mental health is just as important as physical health.

Having faith in myself and others is part of my day to day well being.

When I take responsibility for an emotional or mental health problem, I am taking care of myself to do no harm.

I call it buckling in to corona. And I need help and give help to my friends, family and co-workers.

See you in the new normal!

Doing, when it matters most

Be mindful now!

There are many people or peoples that reflect the above image or practice.

Does the message kill the practice or is it the messenger?

Does breathing cause us harm when we fall into the habit of shallow breathing?

The experience of being mindful may be its best teacher, but many students will need a Little Rock and roll to get the message across to them.

Check out the sexy app about being mindful now!

Don’t worry, you will find it if it works for you.

Autumn 2019

The end of a month is coming near,

The day is clear and air is crisp,

The changes are all in Colour and are littered among dead leaves,

The mornings and evenings are fighting with winter,

Animals are still fighting with food for hibernation.

Another passing season readable within all the fine print.

Happy Halloween!

Living The Good Life

I reflect upon good and bad and properly use these impressions,

Command my will,

Some say, I have consciousness.

Understand and know, I am conscious.

Shame not consciousness or do it harm,

Here is my strength: I can get what I want and avoid what I don’t want, use the proper impulse, a careful purpose, use a studied assent.

This is my job: to practice living ‘the good life’.

Do No Harm

You can read and put it into practice and journal about it.

You can talk to others about it.

But we really need to learn how to live.

To live is to learn, love, laugh and begin to build a life and a legacy.

With each life built this way, others need not reinvent the way.

But life has up and down and most of us get broken and need time to mend.

It is a challenge to live and do no harm.

We cause much damage to ourselves and others.

When we loose sight of our harm, we do more harm.

It is a big concern for all who strive to live a good life.

Who on this planet is up for change and will risk their life for it?

Will it be an internal or external event?

Most likely a little of both.

What will you do to revolutionize yourself and the planet?

International Day of Peace

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political.

The more important question is about day two.

There is a need for continuing the work to a final conclusion:365 a year.

With this actuality, progress can continue to be strived for with concrete outcomes and a direction to improve on the day to day peace, ad infinitum…

Individuals need to be engaged, repeatedly to attempt a dialogue and affirmative action for ongoing continual peace.

John Lennon said it best, “Give peace a chance.”

Day by day, an actual scale to approach for everyone, in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation.

The Plight Of Getting It Right

Every new habit has its ups and downs,

But TV watching is a pseudonym for alcoholic without drinking in self destruct mode, but watching anything in self destruct mode!

I need to eat 3 meals a day, sleep 7 hours, work 8 hours and travel for an hour= 24 hours – 19 hours=5 hours

5 hours to live the good life each day.

But one hour is spent preparing for the next day. That leaves 4 hours watching TV.

After 50 years of viewing 4 hours a day, I have spent 20 or so years trying to change this bad habit.

Being addicted to TV 📺 is a slow suicide!

I have a plan to do something else each day. I am replacing it with playing guitar, listening to music, exercise, waking, going to the library, journaling, reading and writing, learning and much much more…

Anything but TV!

What is your poison?

Give it up.

I am one to talk.

Child Abuse Is Plain And Simple

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turpin_case

Children’s rights are front and centre when considering extreme examples of child abuse.

The world may harbour many more problems for the special needs of children.

We need a charter for children’s rights to help support the legal rights and obligations for them.

Celebrating Gratitude

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gratitude_journal

I have been journaling my whole life.

I also like to write, blog and research.

Today I have reached the halfway mark of my daily “Be Great, Be Grateful: A Gratitude Journal for Positive Living” by Patternity.

I love poetry and blogging, I thing I’m nuts about the writing more than any specific element.

I like language, nuances, details, logic, reason, creativity, the narrative, the archetypal ideas, thoughts, feelings, beliefs, behaviour, being and people.

So, I am discovering I am grateful in the same passionate way.

I think I will simply carry on with my grateful journal or repeat it.

Partly, it has helped me focus my goals.

I am more concerned about being than doing.

Therefore my goal is to learn how to sleep better.

I believe in being better or happier being who I am.

I am not doing this for material gain or to gain anything.

I find it a challenge to put into words: do no harm but live a healthy life.

So I am celebrating all the above by sharing it with you.

Thanks for following my entry today.
