These questions have no right or wrong answers.
Because sometimes asking the right questions is the answer.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Which is worse, failing or never trying?
If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
Would you break the law to save a loved one?
Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
Why are you, you?
Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
What are you most grateful for?
Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
Has your greatest fear ever come true?
Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?
What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
If not now, then when?
If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?
Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
Vote for White Rabbit now!
Random venting :/
I’m tired of your bullshit
I’m tired of your lies
I’m tired of being played hot and cold
I’m tired of crying myself to sleep
I’m tired of getting hurt
I’m tired of you playing us both
I’m tired of you saying things you don’t mean
I’m tired of you making me feel bad
& I wish I could be done with you,
But You Make It So Hard. 🙁
I just want to be yours forever…
without all the bullshit
without all the lies
without all the tears

Quote for the day…
“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”— Marilyn Monroe
MY meaningful quote for today…
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”— Elizabeth Gilbert
To most people who have never been in an abusive relationship the answer would be simple. They go back because they are either stupid or ignorant or worse. I believe it’s more complex than just that. I don’t think there is anyone out there who can say that they are strong enough not to become a victim of abuse – the only defense we have is educating ourselves and our children and hope that we or they would be strong enough one day to say no. The reality is though that we go back to what we know. We go back to the familiar even if it is horrible and abusive, it’s still our comfort zone to an extent. The unknown is, for some, far more scary than being beaten, ridiculed, insulted etc. For some reason once you leave an abuser all you can remember are the “good” times the times before he lost his job or before he got that illness or whatever it might be. Domestic violence, violence of any kind, is not the way to do things it is not love. Ladies, and men, don’t fool yourselves and do not for one second believe that you could not do better, because trust me you can. The mere fact that you are being abused means there’s something about you the abuser sees as a threat something worth beating down. Leave get out you can do it.
So yeah a lot of abused people return to their abuser but I believe the more they educate themselves the more they empower themselves the more they can see that it is them with the power and not the abuser. Here’s another article…
Somewhere I’m not supposed to be…
I know that something is not right, I know deep down inside.
A part of me doesn’t want to face the truth; all it wants to do is hide
But what lies in darkness, always comes to light
But I hope that my intuition will help to make things right
If I have my way, these will be the last words I’ll ever need to say
So I say them to you now, before we’re lead astray
I can look into the horizon and I can dream up clear blue skies
And I can satisfy myself by living in a lie,And you and I, that’s a lie, because there’s always something getting in between.
Something and someone that poses as a barrier so I’ll never get to reach you even if I try
I wonder how it is that you reach me.
You’re not for me.
That doesn’t stop me from wanting you
It just hovers like a challenge
I’ll never get to conquer
And no matter what you do, or what you say, I know deep down inside of me
That I’m somewhere I’m not supposed to be.
I feel like I’m wearing his shoes, and even if you like me in them,
They still don’t fit the same I feel like I’m doing his job and he still gets paid.
It’s always going to be there, this insatiable desire to be someone I wasn’t made to be.
To be the one for you
When the one for you already exists…
I can add a mile, but I’ll never measure up
and fate has made sure that I’ll never gain your trust.
And still I wanna try, because that’s what people do.
They fight against all odds, and if we give up we never find love.
And I won’t find that by wearing someone else’s shoes
And when I’m with you, it’s beautiful but I always feel
That I’m somewhere I’m not supposed to be.
I won’t be a fool, not for you and not for me.
I absolutely refuse to make myself believe that I’m some where, when I really have no idea where I am.
Because underneath it all, I’ll always be lost when it comes to you
When it comes to you I will always be expendable…
I don’t exist…
I’m just this secret that I don’t wanna be.
You happy with that?
I think the best part of me is going to slip through your fingers
Like how you’re slipping through mine I may be wrong.
And I don’t think I’ll ever be me, If I have to stay somewhere I’m not supposed to be.

Depression in young children…
How serious do you think this is in today’s society? Do we take ourselves too seriously should we let kids be kids or should we look and listen to what they are saying to us and help them where we can? Or is our helping them only hindering or harming them? So many questions so little time 😉 We always hear our parents saying “when we were kids we got a hiding had manners and learned how to deal with life”. Yet I can’t help but wonder whether there should be a balance, and yes there should always be a balance.
From what I’ve learned and observed balance is essential. If we go from one extreme to the next there is no balance and hence no happiness no fulfillment no joy no peace. This is just a short article about depression in young children, something I think every parent should be aware of and research further.
and another article to point you in your right direction whatever that may be 🙂
