Giving Praise……..

Sometimes, I forget who I have to give thanks for all the wonderful things I am able to accomplish. This is my way of saying “Thank You.”

The New Age Of Minimalist

A photo by Liz Weston. unsplash.com/photos/8zwyATYyrSY

The minimalist live style started back in the 1950. Basically, you live with less, much less about 100 things.

Today is a big trend. The simplicity of art, media, and lifestyle has evolved into this new (yet old) culture. To be a minimalist is to free yourself of stress, clutter, things that are not so much important. To enjoy life to the fullest with family, friends, eat right, value simplicity.

Look around you, de-clutter yourself of material things that no longer have value. Ask yourself, do you really need 10 or 20 pairs of shoes? Do you need so many clothes? Is your closet full of clothes that you no longer use? Does your home have to look like a museum in order to make you feel better? Is having so many electronic devices good for you?

Would it really hurt you to have maybe 1 or 2 credit cards instead of the 10 you are carrying around? Is it really necessary to upgrade your car or phone every year?

There is an old saying, “You can’t take it with you when you die.”

For some of us, living with less has always been our struggle. There is nothing fancy or easy with having less. We just cannot afford it. Now, it’s a new way of life.

Can you live with less? Ask yourself. You might be surprised with your answer.

Mad As Hell Part 2

I haven’t done this segment in a long time. Today is one of those days, when you really have to express yourself about the little things that really, really irritate you a bit.x4aaf4su9q

I guess Wednesday has turned into a Monday for me, today. So let’s begin.

Drivers– Yes, drivers. There should be a law after so many years you should be given a road test again. Mine you, I probably would not pass it either. But there are some real characters on the road. Take this morning. I am driving my 7-year-old to school. This woman cuts in front of me as she makes an illegal left turn gives me the finger. Honestly, I laugh at her stupidity. Then I realise she is the reason women drivers get so bad rep.

Finances– Yes, the saga of bill paying. As in every relationship,there is one-half that is better at this than the other. Unfortunately, in my household, my husband fails at this miserably. From time to time, I let him handle the finances so he can see, it’s not an easy job. So today  his truck payment is late. (Sorry sweetie, I had to put it out there). Yes, my husband read this blog. He knows I am fuming at this point.

Charity Work– Being an advocate against Animal Abuse it is not an easy job. Each of us gives our time, resources and talent for a good cause. I  made a magazine called Max And Friends (it’s free)  I am taking donations for local shelters. Right now we stand at 0% donated. This makes me sad.

Bloggers– I love my community on WordPress.com. I do have other sites that I manage at WordPress.org this one is always home for me. I do not like when other bloggers take your idea and run away with it and make it their own. That is wrong. This has happened to me several times already.

Disrespect– We were taught as children to be respectful of others. Why all of a sudden all you see, hear and read is how angry and disrespectful everyone has become. Honestly, I seriously believe there is something in the food to make people so angry. Just a thought.

Do you like to blog?

Sometimes, you have a clear idea on what to blog. Then there are those time when you simply hate it. 

Nothing comes to mind. I like  to blog. I like to share  news, interesting articles I read and pass it along to you.

I wish I  had a solid niche and stick with it, but the News Petrum is so large. So I  just dabble here and there with everything.

One thing for sure. This website doesn’t blog for money or advertise  (outside of what WordPress.com  put in my blog).

I am happy with that. I enjoy telling you my readers, how I feel and expressing concern on topics I share.

I have been doing this since 2009. That is a long time.

I just go back to reading now and look for something interesting  to blog about to you.
