Thinking, Reading & Coffee or Meditating in the Sunshine

resting quiet doggie

I had George Strait music playing on the Amazon Dot earlier [the Amazon music monthly cost for one Dot is an AWESOME bargain for music lovers] .. but it was just too much noise added to my little doggie’s penchant for yappityness because cars drive up and down our street so off it went.

It is nice to say Alexa stop and silence reigns again. So my daughter was right at Christmas and I was wrong .. yet again .. lololol

My neighborhood hosts various cats or bunny rabbits outdoors that catch his attention too 🙂 Now with him sleeping or resting .. I can hear the birds singing outside .. it is a lovely sound!!!

I have coffee with cream in my cup tho yet once again it needs warmed up .. and I was reading on Facebook when an article captured my attention and I went off to read it at their website.

Then I entered the rabbit hole of reading another article there .. and here I am .. posting on my blog with my thoughts that generated from reading THIS article on their website – Transcending Victim Mentality and Taking Back Your Power.

In the article it mentions using LOVE as our weapon .. contradictions tend to capture my imagination and interest ..  🙂 .. I had never thought of love as a weapon before .. but I have never really understood victim mentality nor why people practice it.

This article helped me some with the concept 🙂 .. it appears to meet some of their needs that I have never really had .. my needs have generally been on a different wave length.

Article Quote: “When we allow ourselves the freedom to be with the truth of our reality, we feel an emotion without creating a story behind the emotion (which is whatever we would put behind the “because” in our story), we empower ourselves to deal with emotions head on.

I do my very best to live in my truth and not to blame others and to love others .. not as a weapon to harm or even to heal them .. but as me being me and who I want to be and how I want to live.

After I wrote this post, I finished my coffee and created this doodle of my thoughts. Hope you enjoy it too!

I think in colors & shapes .. so for example circles of “color hue” .. white to black and back again  or as 500 shades of pink or purple 

I have always had to translate my colors and shapes to words .. as a child I read anything and everything .. words & their dictionary meanings were stored in my brain like a giant library card catalog 🙂

Vascular Dementia has created LOTS of “swiss cheese type memory holes” in the data there .. which complicates my life and thinking even more than it already was 🙂 but it is all good!
