Shitty people

After an incident this week, someone said to me “they are just shitty people”.  I realised; People aren’t shitty.  Sometimes they just do shitty things.  Which is a result of a lack of love in their lives.  If you come across a “shitty” person, I challenge you to meet them with love and kindness.  And … Continue reading

Sign your name; help save lives.

I know my blog doesn’t reach a great deal of followers, and that’s fine. But I really want to stress the awareness I want to help create about depression. For those of you that follow me regularly or semi-regularly, you would have remembered a post about an optimist with depression after I heard about the … Continue reading

Power to the Peaceful

In search of a definition for “power to the peaceful”, I came across a site that had a bunch of different people’s thoughts and ideas on what it means to them. This was my favourite. POWER TO THE PEACEFUL by Gemma Boyd “Power to the people who speak Power to the people who listen Power … Continue reading

Your Loss – Not Mine

I find the notion behind saying “it’s your loss not mine” to be a very hurtful one. For example, if someone said to me after a discussion which was resulting in a potential loss of friendship/relationship between us that this was “your loss and not mine”, it is as if I would be the one to … Continue reading

Why become a vegan you ask?

Earlier tonight a friend sent me a link to a debate based on why animals should be taken off menus, which was great. And after I finished watching it, I went on a bit of a YouTube browse and came across this guy Gary Yourofsky‘s lecture, and OH  MY GOD he is amazing! He completely refers … Continue reading

Josh Radnor – Kindness Matters

I found this piece a little while ago, and looking at the date now, I wish I had’ve seen it much earlier than I did. Nevertheless, the content is still as truthful and accurate as the day he said it and something that I wholeheartedly agree with. Josh Radnor seems like such an amazing person … Continue reading
