i like to classify people as dreamers. dreamers are the people who look out of windows and dream of the world around them. dreamers are often introverts, who tend to prefer music over people. people who hurt are drawn to dreamers, perhaps to make them instead see the world as the rest. they bewilder yet interest me in so many ways.
#WFPrinciples ✋🏾 “Never neglect the power of #Participation”. You MUST show up. When you do, honor your attempts at engagement & not the results of any given engagement. You may have gone to an event & sat in the corner awkwardly the whole time only talking to people who came up to you, spilled a drink on someone, made someone mad, spoke your opinion & been frowned upon, but none of that matters. So long as you keep an #attitudeofgratitude & allow yourself #forgiveness & room to grow, you will find that your presence in those moments were meaningful. Your #observations & the experiences you gleaned can offer you new insights, bringing you further understanding on how you can navigate social interactions better. You may already be an excellent, heartwarming social butterfly who everyone loves, but find yourself opting out of pivotal moments of engagement. Don’t do that. Don’t neglect that tug on your heart strings to take action. That impulse you feel at a party to dance like no one’s watching? Listen to it. That #impulse you feel to compliment that person across the room? Take it — though, be respectful. That #rebuttal you have during an open forum that would challenge the prized speaker’s statements, say it out LOUD! Sure you could be wrong, but I guarantee you’ll learn more & find more certainty in your knowledge by #participating rather than holding it in; by triangulating your thoughts & opinions with others in your vicinity. Participating in life can lead you to the greatest gifts life has to give. You may #participate your way into a meaningful friendship, a beautiful relationship, a business opportunity, an exclusive place, & then some... However, you’ll never know unless you decide to participate in life🗣‼️ (And trust me when I say that this is a major #notetoself, because I too have a lot of work to do in this department 😅 but truth is truth!) What are your thoughts on this #principle? Any examples of how this may have been applied in your life, or any counter statements we can all learn from? Any #principles of your own to share? ✍🏾🙏🏾🍵 #Welll#Wildenfree#powerofparticipation#livelifewell
#thoughtfulthursday Some people become like talking to a wall. When you watch them continue to make poor choices and then wonder why their life is the way it is... it might just be time to let them figure it out on their own. 🤷🏼♀️ No one has time to play continual therapist to these types of people, we all have our own shit going on. Reality is you cannot save most people - and besides, everyone has to save themselves at the end of the day anyway. Repost from @la_raaah
Design a COmpuTeR🤖!⠀
Otherwise known as a tooter to mister Moo. We're designing our technological masterpieces at our crafter table, AKA dinner table transformed! I'm absolutely loving little projects like this ATM to help me play and connect to my growing daughter. I particularly like a project that has over days. We tend to go through the same process of #observations, #discussion, #design then #create.⠀
Of course my computer is a traditional one that connects to the internet 🌐. Missy’s one is a button computer. You push a button and the a light come on the computer. Genesis 😉. Hopefully we can attempt to build a real Light into her button. ⠀
Have you guys made computers? Or crafted ones?
Observation #1 Living alone- that peanut really won’t pick itself up off the floor...no matter how many times you walk past it. There is also no one to comment why you’re spending 10 min on the floor taking a photo of said peanut. #prosandcons#observations#christmaspeanut#collectingdust
What is it with rude people and are there more folks behaving badly now versus when I was growing up or have I lost my patience with them? Since there’s nothing I can do to change other people’s behavior, I realize it’s time to adjust my attitude. #Humor#Observations
Every morning we stand and wait on the opposite sides of the tracks, ready to go our separate ways. I wonder where they’re going. I wonder if they’ve ever noticed me, or wondered about where I’m going.
My main focus is moving from this spiritual theme of the power of now. Then I can focus fully on what’s vital at this current time. To work with my Ancestors to provide an opening for my Descendants. To work with the past to create a new future. If you look around the Earth you can see clearly the future will not be kind if we merely sit in silence in the now... DM for Ceremony around the Earth. We join in Ceremony to create strength and solidarity.
Antennae Galaxies reloaded The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has snapped the best ever image of the Antennae Galaxies. Clouds of gas are seen in bright pink and red, surrounding the bright flashes of blue star-forming regions — some of which are partially obscured by dark patches of dust. The rate of #star formation is so high that the Antennae Galaxies are said to be in a state of #starburst, a period in which all of the gas within the #galaxies is being used to form #stars. This cannot last forever and neither can the separate galaxies; eventually the nuclei will coalesce, and the galaxies will begin their retirement together as one large elliptical galaxy. This image uses visible and near-infrared #observations from Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), along with some of the previously-released observations from Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).
