Thursday Inspiration # 45 – Bottle

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

This week’s theme is bottle and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Time in a Bottle” written by Jim Croce in 1972.

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
‘Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

Ship in bottle

The only thing that comes to my mind regarding this prompt is the song;

I’m a genie in a bottle!

By Christina Aguilera

Working on us Week # 27- Mental Health and Holiday Season!

Beckie is the host of Working on Us.

She says;

Hello, All! Welcome back to “Working on Us” – A series that represents people with mental health illnesses/disorders. 

~💚~

Self care quotes, mental health quotes

Help Break The Stigma Surrounding Mental Health

~💚~

The holiday season can be stressful. Practicing self care and following these ways to deal with holiday anxiety and to deal with holiday stress and even holiday depression can make a significant difference.

~💚~

In this week’s “Working on Us”, I’d like for us to focus on Mental Health and Holiday Stress.  It’s not uncommon that a number of us are dealing with depression, (SAD), Seasonal Affective Disorders, Anxiety, Social Anxiety, and just plain… Not being in the holiday spirit.  

Some of us are dealing with feelings of despair, loneliness, and/or isolation.  Guess what?  You’re not alone with feeling what your feeling at all.  And, as we all say… “It’s okay to not feel okay.”

I myself, have been dealing with these feelings.  Heck, I haven’t even set up the little Christmas tree I purchased last year.

My favorite holiday memories;

This holiday memory dated back to my childhood. That means it’s around fifty years old.

In holidays we visited my aunt who lived in a seaside city. We were very excited as we were going by train. It was the most wonderful journey for children of our age, that is; 10, 8 and 7 and we enjoyed it to the fullest. We spend a night on the train and had a lot of fun.

Once at my aunt’s place, we visited the ocean for the first time in our lives. And you can imagine how excited we were. The boat rides, the beach visits all were so memorable!

My favorite holiday movie;

Is not a holiday movie at all. I love all animated movies and anyone of them would be my favorite during holiday season.

Kung Fu Panda – 3

Thursday Inspiration # 33 – Home is….

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is home and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Home” recorded by Lene Lovich in 1978:

Home is where the heart is
Home is so remote
Home is just emotion
Sticking in my throat

Teapot full of fruit

~*~

Image credit to the Happy Color app.

~*~

Home is not a place, it’s a state of mind. One can have a cozy and comfortable home and yet not be happy there and a person can live in a small shack and be content. Some carry the image of a perfect home in their hearts, forever trying to bring it into reality. And when they sometimes attain that perfection, they find out that it’s not what they wanted. I feel that home is a metaphor for a place of ease and peace. Being home means to me a state of mind free from stress and worry. A place where I am me and there are no rules other than mine.

You open the door and shout, I’m home

Take off your shoes and shed the stress

Nothing is more welcoming than the scent of your own hearth

Pop of Positivity- Sunshine

“What is “Pop!” – Pop of Positivity?”

“Pop of Positivity”   It’s based on one simple thing.  “Life doesn’t have to suck all the time.”  Let’s face it… There’s a Helluva lot of negativity in the real world, and it’s pretty hard to escape it.  I thought of this as a means to brighten up everyone’s day.  Taking time away from thinking about the negative and switch gears and think of the positive.  Perhaps,  we can all share some smiles along the way too.
