Random Thoughts Thread 2
It's such a nice day out today, I see people out in the streets, feels almost... normal, again. I never thought I'd be so happy just to see humans again. If/when this is said and done, will take a lot less things for granted.
This whole year has felt like living through a collective episode of black mirror, except it wasn't fiction. 😳
I hope, when Saturn & Jupiter move into Aquarius, we move into a different paradigm. Personally, I could use a little more fresh air.
Thought I'd upload an image for my profile.
What sizes can we use? I think I remember someone in the forum mentioning photo size requirements...
Interesting. I thought this thread had disappeared because everytime I would click on the link, it would just take me back to the Lounge. I had to open it as a separate link just now when I right-clicked on JoFrance's name in order to access it. I'm wondering if it's a glitch.
I am reading Through The Looking Glass by Richard Idemon and it got me thinking about people that say I love you after every call, taking out the garbage, cleaning up after the dog’s poop, after each act of copulation or when going to work, to bed, to the supermarket, to school, to the doctors, to grandma’s etc.…. Basically, these three little words are popped out so easily and seemingly without a second thought. I wondered, is it
A learned habit
A cultural thing, as it is more prevalent in some societies than others
A generational thing
A deep unconscious need for self-preservation in the event something awful happens and the conscience can be absolved - at least you told them often … “I love you”
Insecurity; theirs or the other person’s
Relationship guru, and author Dr. Gary Chapman has words of affirmation as one of the five love languages, so there are many who need to give or receive these particular three words of affirmation, often.
Also, there are moments when saying I love you, is enough.
But personally I don’t think tossing these three little words carelessly with every breath is as powerful as saying something with more specificity that you like or love about another … this of course requires effort and awareness, perhaps therein the answer.
Two week freeze in my state starting on Wednesday. All non-essential businesses will be closed to the public. Restaurants and bars are take out only. Surprisingly, spas and hair salons are open because they help promote a person's overall well-being. My psychologist's office is also open because they are a mental health facility, which is considered an essential business. I can see why because mental health facilities also help maintain someone's well-being when it comes to mental illnesses.
On the plus side, I ordered a tube of crimson hair dye last week and it will be here tomorrow so I can make the crimson/vampire red a permanent color that won't wash out everytime I shampoo my hair.
The past couple of days, I've gone to my governor's Facebook page to read his posts. Then I read the comments.
This Republican governor's not getting reelected, I can golly-gosh-darn-tee ya that. Seems everyone is pissed at him because he ran on a pro-Trump platform and now they think he's hiding out like a little bitch instead of doing his duty to protect Trump. They're over COVID, don't want to hear about Diwali or the businesses he's visited. They think he's deflecting from voter fraud and that he and the Secretary of State are secretly helping the left. Either these accusations are true, and we have a turncoat for a governor--or the people in this state are getting more and more stupid.
