Negative Energy…..

We all have this whether we want to believe it or not. I actually consider myself to be an energy vampire.

Let me set this straight:
No I don’t believe I’m a vampire, I don’t have teeth that elongate and the taste of blood—well yuk! Not to mention I get queasy now-a-days when I see it. There is also the fact that I love the sun too much. LOL

But lately I’ve noticed that I feed off of people’s emotions, they can be saying one thing and I’m feeling a completely different emotion from them. There are places that I don’t enjoy going because of the outward “fake” appearances that are so contradictory to what I’m feeling that I leave with a headache and in a depressed state.

Now this is really nothing new, I’ve always been pretty good at reading people and my first impression is almost always right. Why? Because, like my headaches tell me a storm is coming, they also seem to signal a bullshit meter. Sometimes I take a chance and ignore it, but it’s not the norm for me. Nor am I happy when my first impressions are right and I have to face the personal consequences.

Negativity is a powerful emotion just as love is. And I believe that Karma is the way the universe equals good and evil. It might not happen in my time, but it will happen and that always gives me hope.

And why does this give me hope?
I don’t need to be a player in the cosmic scheme of things—I’ve already done my part in the play, now I only need to sit back and wait. The rest as they say “will take care of itself”.

So since I’m feeling a bit of that negative energy around me and a lot of others, I am counteracting it. I’m sending the power of positive out into the universe. Whether it’s a poem, which inspired me to be better than the negative—a quote—maybe even a little charm. Call it a surrounding white light for me and my true friends and family.

“Carrying around anger is most debilitating to the person who bears it.” ~ Partial quote by Katharine Graham, Newspaper publisher & Pulitzer Prize winning memoirist.

Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day. ~ Author Unknown

He who has so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition will waste his life in fruitless efforts. ~ Samuel Johnson

Swelling on the negative simply contributes to its power. ~ Shirley MacLaine

So I LKap, wish for you happiness and peace of mind to feed your own well of good against the powers of evil trying to suck the greatness out of you.
If someone revels in the negative, take away their power with your own positive light, positive thinking, anything positive will negate the negative. Remember, you have the power to change a negative into a positive.

From the famous words of Fanny Brice, “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”

Just for fun a little ditty to do with a mirror facing away from you, while you turn in a complete circle - imagine this in cyber space twirling around protecting you from harm – now of course if you’ve sent harm ~ BE GONE!

"circle of reflection
cicle of protection
may the sender of all harm
feel the power of this charm"

Now I’m letting my inner child out to play. “I’m rubber, you’re glue what you say bounces off me and sticks to you.” :-P

Stay positive and laugh (if for no other reason then for people to question why)

Miss Snark - Missing You Three Years Later

It’s been three years since Miss Snark’s blog went dark.

Three years without Killer Yapp, the bucket of gin, George Clooney and the crapometer.

Funny thing is I thought I’d eventually forget the blog. Forget the snarky way she taught so many of us. The daily dose of anticipation with a touch of fear mixed in for those of us who submitted to her. Waiting to see if she’d find some small shred of value, or if her stiletto’s would dig deep destroying the crap, but never really destroying us.

But no, I’ve never forgotten her or the truths learned in this journey so many of us are on.
From time to time I wander over to her blog wondering if just this one time I might her there.

From those who are new to writer’s world, check her blog out. Glean from the truths written among the snarky words and the snarklets.

To Miss Snark, whoever you truly may be, you are still missed and thank you for sharing your wisdom with us.

Oh How He's Grown....

So there have been two new animals that joined my house in the last year. Bella my cat won't sit still long enough to get her picture taken, or she's got a lizard in her mouth - so not attractive. But Max.... he's a ham. Can't you tell?

His personality is just as chilled as he looks.

Lost Generation

This is an amazing video. It's short, only 1:44 minutes (and seconds).

From the email that it was sent to me:

Interesting how this works! Make sure your speakers are turned on
A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite. This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant! Make sure you read as well as listen...forward and backward. This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled "u @ 50" by AARP. This video won second place . When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause. So simple and yet so brilliant. Take a minute and watch it.
