Now Playing Tracks

1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

3. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

4. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

5. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

6. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

7. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

8. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

9. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

10. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

11. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

13. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

14. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

15. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

A self care list. I’ve been working on this. I promise it’s worth it.

I had Chipotle for lunch today at the office.  The good news was that the burrito was excellent; however, I just had to fix their commie flower child quote on the bag.  I may need to go get another burrito to tied me over until second lunch, so I may return their stupid bag to them.

Chipotle does this because it promotes their message of clean eating, respect for the environment, and for others. So shame on whoever did this. Chipotle also supports local produce and naturally raised beef, pork, and chicken. You are a very closed minded person and if you don’t like the message don’t eat there, it’s very simple.

Do I really have to walk you through what’s wrong with the concept of “nobody working” and “everyone eating for free?”  Unless we are all going to morph into grazing cattle in the future, this quote is asinine.

You do realize that people worked substantially less, ate better, lived in a more equal and fair society, and had better overall health when we followed the hunter-gather model of subsistence, right? In essence, we lived a lifestyle of working less, eating better, and being more free!

Yes, we should all abandon our technological breakthroughs, advanced medicine, state-of-the-art medical procedures, wide assortment of improved foods, modes of efficient transportation, our remarkable methods of communication, and instead go back to hunting and gathering in shacks like they do in Africa and parts of South America.  

This is actually the environmentalists’ dream.  We could throw all of mankind’s progress and go back to dying of common viral infections in a cave somewhere or struggle not to die of heat stroke just trying to gather a few berries that can barely sustain our energy requirements for a day.

Or, you know, you could just go camping every once and a while.

Don’t even have to troll people anymore. They do it themselves

A loving God would never __________

This whole argument is flawed.

You realize you are literally judging what God should and shouldn’t do. By very definition of you not being God, you don’t get to do that. Whether you believe in God or not, we don’t get to set the standard of moral justice. We may try and match those standards based on what we read in God’s word, or on how we feel, but by our sinful nature, it is flawed. 

God executes perfect moral justice in a way that is hard for us to comprehend. God is just. It is one of his attributes. Sin is wrong, thus, since we all have sin, we all deserve His righteous justice, AKA hell.

BUT, since he is a loving God, he sent a scapegoat, His son Jesus Christ. This God is just AND loving. Both are characteristics of Him.
