    Laughter

    Laughter

    There are times when me or anyone else feels like they are down. Whether due to work, COVID19, or any other situations , there are ways we can cope and heal from it. A lot of people think that medicine heals your body, mind, and spirit but to a point it doesn't. The way we look at things through our eyes see one thing but our body and mind and heart say otherwise. As humans, its ok to feel down but not all the time. Too much negative energy and negative thoughts can impact our spirit and heart. When we think too negative of situations , for example COVID19, it can be hard to find a way to be happy and cope. How we deal with things can affect us. Every time I go grocery shopping, I can see and feel how people are frustrated and anger and sad at the same time. Body language is a key to figuring out how people are feeling. For example, I went to Kroger's few days ago and I looked around. I saw an elderly woman give a nasty look at a mother and child because they were wearing a mask. They were wearing a mask to protect themselves and not get sick from anyone else. I was personally disgusted by that old woman because the mother was protecting her child. Its mothers instinct to protect their young ones. As a mother, I went up to the old lady, 6 ft apart though and wearing a mask, and asked her what is your problem. She gave me a smart statement so I gave her smart statement back. There is no reason for anyone to be like that towards each other. When I got home, i still felt anger and disgusted but I knew down deep in my heart and soul and mind I don't need to be like that. Negative feelings isn't the answer. The answer is...Laughter! So i decided to watch Naked and Afraid on TV. One of the survivalist, Gary Golding, is my favorite. He makes me laugh so much! Especially in his season 9 episode 4 Forbidden Fruit when he was partnered up with Karra. They both made me laugh but Gary is and will always be my favorite. Not only did he make me laugh but he send a very good message... Consume As Little As Possible! It doesn't matter what we all go through...what matters is how we make the most of it by laughter, smiles , and love. Love and Laughter is the best medicine. From my point of view when ever i feel down and I watch Naked and Afraid Gary Golding, it makes me laugh and smile, it truly does make me feel better inside and out! Negative is bad but Positive energy and laughter is better. Too much negativity can make us sick but if we laugh and become a better person then that positive energy can help us. So if we contract COVID19 don't look down at it. Make the most of it and REST! Yes its a difficult situation but if remain positive and make the most of it then we can ALL get through this. There is a certain spark or feeling of laughter that brings smiles on our face and warm feeling inside. Laughter does make you pee if you do laugh too hard for sure. It’s a proven fact. I watched Bad Moms 2 with my man two nights ago and it made me laugh so badly. Especially the male stripper scene made me laugh I tinkled myself. What woman would want wax a mans balls and so forth? Laughter is amazing negativity isn’t. I don’t take my life seriously because we only have one life to live and live it to the fullest. Be Happy and Live Life to Fullest!

    The Human Experience

    The Human Experience

    My thoughts have always been amongst the realm of metaphysics. I can try my best to briefly explain the feeling of the soul within the human body. The syncopation of heartbeat, breath, and blood flow. The synchronization of thought, action, and dialogue. The human experience is fluctuation; the balance and imbalance of life. The human experience is imperfection; the trial, error, and lesson that we inevitably learn. The human experience begins before we can begin to appreciate it, and has an end that we all cannot fathom entirely.

    Introversion Is Not a Character Flaw

    Introversion Is Not a Character Flaw

    Being an introvert myself, I am often criticised for being quiet or shy. This is a common misconception of introverted people. We are not shy or quiet, in fact we are more than happy to have a conversation with someone and socialise with friends, family, co-workers. The main difference between us and extroverted or ambiverted people is that we gain our energy and perspective from being alone and spending time in a space that provides us a chance to recharge and reflect - we are also very careful where we invest our energy.

    Where Are You From? The Question That Triggers an Identity Crisis.

    Where Are You From? The Question That Triggers an Identity Crisis.

    Born in Zimbabwe. Raised in Birmingham, England. Moved for university. Briefly moved countries. Not having stayed still in this wonderful life has meant sometimes, I don’t know how to answer the simple question of where I’m from. The answer I give, may or may not be satisfying enough for the recipient, therefore, I’m forced to give a life story on some occasions or sometimes briefly panic upon hearing the simple phrase, “where are you from?”. It all comes from the concept of identity and the role it plays in our lives. For some it is simpler, then for the remaining lot it is a deep dive into our lives and what makes up our identity.

    THE NEW FASCES OF TECHNO-FASCISM

    THE NEW FASCES OF TECHNO-FASCISM

    Once open and pluralistic societies in the West have become riddled by false fears of contagion. No grassroots resistance is possible against the surging tide of fascism because we've been largely confined to our own spaces in seclusion from one another.
