Default Wake-Up Calling...Strongly Cautioned

I ponder thoughts today, of why people have to sit & degrade/belittle another? I have nothing but neighbour's that I find "stick their nose(s)" into everything else going on. Why are people so "infatuated" with doing that to other's? Is it because their own lives/life is so perfect they feel the need(s) do "demoralize" another for theirs? I don't care for people that judge me, based on whatever they feel the need(s) to judge me about. I find that most disturbing that people "focus" so much of their energy trying to hurt another, by being unkind, judgmental & thinking that they're better than other's. To me, some DO have it better than other's but why judge another based on that? I personally don't feel it's the right/correct thing(s) to be doing. However, people are going to continue to 'toss' their opinion(s) around, until the end of time comes.


That brings me to thinking this thought. No one is perfect in my opinion. We all have flaws. Some are seen & some are very cleverly hidden from view/sight of other's. The people, like me, that ware their "flaws" openly, have nothing being hidden from other's views. People, like my daughter's (soon to be) X husband have much to hide, lie & be dishonest about. Why? That comes as a wonderfully intriguing question when I think about it. Why do some feel the need(s) to hide their (own) "imperfections while other's just openly have them? Is it something that's "bred" into certain individual's while other's it's not? Is it the way people are raised, taught or "corrected" on their own behaviour(s)? I mean, I truly could keep asking, but that would take a long time. I think people's true nature comes out, in the midst of what we're (all) enduring as of right now. This Coronavirus as people's "attention." Some people, are kind & giving of themselves to help other's. Some are just hoarding everything they're capable of doing, just looking out for themselves, their family or their own loved one's. The last group of people, are always willing to give, what little away they have, just to (sincerely) help another or other's out. Those individual's are the extremely rare one's I personally believe. They're willing to risk their own life, just to make sure someone else doesn't "go without" whatever's needed. I truly am humbled by people that are willing to do that, just for the sake/good of other's. Maybe this virus IS a good "learning experience" for all of mankind. To take "stock" of the kind of person you are; at your own core. To see IF we're "worthy" of continuing on this journey...called life.


I personally view this as a massive & serious wake-up call to all of us; myself included. We need to put our differences aside, our pettiness, jealousies, selfish behaviours & everything that's bad about us in a closet! We need to "keep the demons at bay" because we are the cause of our own demise's. It doesn't matter how this virus got started or who(m) is to blame. What matters now, should be coming together, finding a cure, learning from our (massive) mistakes & believing that each & everyone of us IS important as the next! We need to "fix" what's wrong with ourselves, our views, & so much more. While this is ALL my thoughts, feelings & opinions I do NOT believe I'm SO "far off base" from what we need to do....to heal ourselves from life. This may be our one & only opportunity to realize how precious each & everyone breath we take is just as valuable as the next. That we ALL can coexist on this planet; together! That we do NOT let hate ruin us, our lives, or other people's. We live to help, come together & improve life; not keep taking it. These are my (personal) thoughts. Right, wrong, or indifferent I think that this IS our "final jeopardy trivial" before we become as extinct as the dinosaur's.

Default Struggling...Cautioned

Today I found myself, actually feeling a bit down spiraling with certain aspects of my life. My health is the biggest concern(s) I deal with on a daily basis, beside what my daughter's going through. I've noticed, that my hair's been falling out, in large amounts. It's thinned out so much, I hardly have any hair to grab on to or pull back. That's one thing I always liked about myself. I used to have such long, beautiful & thick hair. Now, it's just all gray, black & falling out. Don't get me wrong, I can deal with the black & gray coloring aspect of it, but it's the losing it that's really bothersome. It's a bit depressing along with the fact(s) of aging. I used to look at older people & admire how beautiful they looked at their age(s). They never showed it. They were always younger than what you might believe or think that they were. I had someone tell me, I look like I'm 65 year's old. That one, I will say, really cut me to the core, though I will admit I (tried very hard) laughed/laughing it off after a female & her husband said that to me.


Maybe that's where I am in my own life. Getting older, showing an older age & just not being able to "cope" with that part of nature? We all age at one point in time or another. However, some people just stay "timeless with beauty." They don't do injections or even have surgeries. They're just natural beautiful men/women that age gracefully & look so young doing so. It hard, seriously, to know how quickly I'm aging & there's noting I can do about it. Yes, I do realize that it's petty to be thinking this or even posting it, when there's people dying, suffering, or families hurting with this pandemic going around. That's just it...they're family(ies) are with them. Maybe not right beside them, sadly due to this outbreak, but they know they can call & talk to them. They're praying for them, sending them hugs/kisses & so much more. Why? That's what a REAL family does! Some day, I truly hope I will be fortunate enough to "find" that kind of real, loving caring family in my real life. In the meanwhile, I'm deeply grateful for this place & the supportive people. It's like having a family, just in many different areas of our world. That helps me on a day like today. Knowing that we all are here for the same purpose...support, kindness & compassion we're unable to find or have within our real lives.

I wouldnt go that far and say you had no one. For example: your foster parents decided to adopt you. I was adopted by my gran, as my mother was mentally unstable at first. She would beat me and throw shoes at me for bringing cold coffee to her, she was a dictator, but when i went back to my mothers, she was too light headed, and not strict at all. There must be a balance between the two.
