Changes in Our World Today

With all that is happening in the world today, we have to not try to take it all in and dwell on it  It is a little to much to try and find all the answers to make everything right again. There is not a day that goes by that there is loads of bad news.

There are wars erupting all over the world, with innocent people and children being injured or dying. What has changed us to the point of harming children and our families or people that we don't even know.

Life or normal living seems to be causing such havoc all over the world, causing individuals to perform horrific acts. Has the weight of just trying to live a normal life caused us to abandon what is right and what is wrong.

Of course we all have had the unexpected occur, be it health issues or a  tragedy of some kind. But are we abandoning our common sense? Or, are we trying to sort and understand what is happening around us, which can be a bit much for anyone to handle and put our minds in overload?

Taking in too much can cause stress

We are overloaded with today's current events, not to say we don't want to know, but some of us cannot handle being bombarded with so much bad news. It begins to take a toll on a person's way of thinking and how they would handle certain situations. A buildup of stress related or not related can cloud one's mind eventually.

  • Mental illness seems to be growing since many of the facilities were closed down. Where does one go to get assistance when they can foresee a problem arising among family members or someone close to them.
  • The stress generated from the economy problems and loss of jobs.
  • Our military being displace and struggling to survive, once out of the service.
  • Health related issues.
  • Family structure falling apart.
  • Drug use which impairs the judgement of a person's reaction to a situation.
  • Media news and one's interpretation.
  • Built up anger causing a person not to think rationally in a given situation. 
What would cause a grandson to harm his grandmother or any family member? Family friends attacking
another family and their children is just unheard of. What is actually causing these horrific crimes?
The attack on young children today is unacceptable and must be stopped. An attack on any human being is wrong. Are we paying attention to the changes in our world?

We cannot just let it go because it is getting worse. Yet,  we cannot let this behavior become a norm. and lead us into a place of no return.

Preparing for bad weather

Havoc has been caused all over the country by this thing called weather. Tornadoes, hurricanes and thunderstorms to name a few. It is way past time to make sure your family has an emergency kit or bag filled with what we might need in case of an emergency.
And most importantly , where is the escape or shelter area for your family. We watch all the weather disasters on TV every day and we think that it might not happen to us.

  1. There are quite a few things needed to prepare a survival kit for a family. By adding a few things at a time you will eventually have your kit ready for most disasters.

Express Yourself

Being able to express yourself is good for your health and well being. It helps to calm you and also sharpens your thinking skills.There are many ways available for you to express yourself available on the web. The really good sites let you discuss what you know and what you want to talk about. It is a good way to release
some of that mental energy that we all posses.

If you have a hobby or something you really like to do and want to share it or teach them how, then this might work for you. Everyone has different ways of doing things. Theses ideas can be shared and help others learn to do something different or make it easier.

You might like to take pictures, paint, cook, know how to do a repair and so much more. It is amazing how much you can learn about the everyday things and the not so familiar activities that people are involved in. It is a learning experience.

You can really travel the world through these sites after reading and viewing the pictures that others have submitted or by viewing the instructions as to how to do something that you might have thought was too difficult to try. This information is shared by real people that love to share their experiences and talent.

I love to take pictures of all things and share them with others. You don't have to be an expert, because you learn from others that gladly offer advice or how-to instructions and help.
If you work with crafts you can show how and what you do.There are no limitations. Of course all of these sites have rules, but they are to be expected.

You really can proceed at your own pace without any pressure. You might want to participate in the challenges offered, but that would be up to you. We do a lot of physical things, but are we keeping our minds sharp by doing something we really like doing?

I am putting a couple of examples of what I have talked about. Check them out and don't be shy. Express yourself.

Join me there.

It is St. Patrick's Day. May you all have a prosperous and healthy year. As a youngster we always wore something green to recognize the celebration of the holiday, even though we we not Irish. It was called sharing and acknowledging everyone and their holiday.

The world would be a better place if this was practiced by everyone, no matter who you are.
