For a while I have been wanting … I was going to write trying there but I'd be lying to you and myself to say that … wanting to write a "hit" post! A viral post! The winning piece… and then I sit down to write… start a post … I want it to be so brilliant that the pressure kills me!! So today I just told myself write! Write anything ! It shouldn't be about a perfection! Because I couldn't decide what would be brilliant to write about I thought I should just start typing … and so here I am… nothing to write about. Just a girl, in the world, who wants to write, to make people smile, to make all feel at home and welcome!
So even if there is no comments, no readers I am just happy I decided to come back today to write. Clear my head for a few!
For all the great bloggers out there: why do you write? What drives you to write? Where does your inspiration come from!?
It took me a while but seriously seriously SCANDAL is the bomb dot com!
My reasons as if I even need to give them to you because the title speaks for itself! I mean who doesn’t like a good scandal to read about… don’t even say you don’t care for that because I know that’s just lies😂
Olivia Pope – The fixer – whattttt!? Yep I know. So BADASS!
The woman is basically the law! She can be and do everything. We all secretly are fascinated with a superhuman who just is capable of moving mountains. If you want it done… call in Olivia Pope … besides as a woman… hell ya ! I wanna see woman being portrayed as this superhuman geniouses becauses hell… WE ALL ARE!
What is this world coming to? Last week Monday afternoon I finally decided to give 28 minutes of my time to watch this “Kony” video that everyone kept posting about. If you haven’t see it here :
I am absolutely ignorant in regards to wordly matters however in the last year I have definitely tried to be more “informed” and “awake”. So I watch the news and subscibe to various news feeds. Being the completely ignorant person I am after watching the video I was esgaperated by the atrocities going on and that have been going on in Africa which I was totally oblivious to. I felt compelled to share the video immediately on Facebook and Twitter etc. etc…
So the week went on and of course more and more articles start popping up countering/challenging the Kony video… Talking about its simplicity and speaking about the history is deeper than what Kony 2012 portrays. Challenging the group Invisible Children and their intent…accusing them of ill spending… missing the whole point of the video. It is crystal clear to me what the Invisible Children are trying to do. And I am definitely no scholar or rocket scientist. The video is to make people aware, they want Kony to surrender, and if you WANT to you can donate to this “AWARENESS” group.
I am disappointed in the world. Of course we need a little skeptism to bring us down to reality but seriously… Does it really matter what the history of the country is and all other counter arguments brought to the table because does it make it any different that this man, Joseph Kony, is still running this army of children who kill their parents and use girls for sex slaves. The answer is SIMPLE. NO.
So yes I want to help and get rid of Mr. Kony… that is the bottom line!!!! So all you skeptics and devils advocates (for lack of a better term) pick another topic. I dont need a run down of history to show how smart or intricate you writing and thoughts may be. Use your intelligence to help the issue 🙂
I read this article yesterday where Jedidiah Jenkins responds to about every challenge I have heard to date! I like his answers because they are clear and direct as the questions. There is no skirting the issues in this interview…. Thats my opinion anyway…

What are your thoughts?
One year ago today I received a phone call from my brother. I was in disbelief because I had just seen him and his friend Eric play soccer the night before. My brother said in a mute tone “my friend Eric died” …. The breath was removed from my body. I immediately became angry because I thought he was joking as my brother likes to do but I thought he was crossing the line with this one… But before I could say anything I heard him crying. A sadness fell over me and cloaked me. I couldnt think or speak. I just surrendered to the tears. The tears lasted for many days.
I didn’t know Eric that well but I felt on the instant of meeting him that he was one in a million. He was sweet and gentle. He was my brothers greatest friend from childhood and that alone made me so sad. They spent almost everyday together. How to deal with losing someone so close to you! And someone so wonderful at that. There is no perfect way.
Eric lived his life by showing people by example that there are wonderful people in this world. Eric’s life taught me to appreciate every moment with those you love. Hang on to and cherish every laugh, every smile and everyday you have with those you love because you never know when our creator will call them to come home. We are here on this earth to enjoy each other, teach each other.
Never lose sight ~ Don’t Blink.
Eric’s favourite song I’m told. How appropriate.
Rest in Peace Erico ~ you are an angel and guide in heaven. You are greatly missed even by those you may never thought you touched.
My prayers and thoughts are with Enrico’s family everyday and especially today. One year later from Enrico’s departure. Xo.
I found the below last year… How beautiful…
“You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him, or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he’d want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on”
David Harkins quotes (British Poet and Painter b.1958)
So I am just watching Anderson. One of my new favourites since being at home. A portion of the show was about “is your house making you fat?”. A dietician was on the show and talked about the way you can set up your home to help reshape your “diet”. I have read many books, websites, articles, and the list goes on… All the tips the dietician named were among the common tips listed in all of the other documents … Honestly I think it’s funny how everytime I watch, or read something on diets or weightloss I think I will come across a magic ingredient or magic piece of info that is going to help me!!! Ha! No matter how many times I read the same great tips, I still go in to my kitchen and grab some chips, or something else that is not so good for me. I say “hmmm, that is great idea… Let me go get some chips to snack on while I ponder that great tip…”. Then I get so deep in thought and in to my bag of chips that I forget what I was thinking about until I hear or read about it again. Lol. Yes and there it is… I will be ready one day to follow… Hmmm l am going to get some chips and ponder about when and how I should start… 🙂
