30 Sec's on....
Ok, so here I am in my favourite chair, the fire's going, a packet of Chocolate Macaroons is tucked in beside me and I have a cuppa.
I know! Life's pretty good.
I mean, it's still August (and bloody sugar free) as I'm writing this but apparently life goes back to normal on Saturday. It should be Friday but we are now working around Crossfit. Don't. Just don't.
But anyway, I was watching a taped episode of The Block last night.
I mean, and I have to say this here before I go any further, it's not my favorite show. I would kick it to the kerb in a heart beat if MKR would show it's pretty little face again but, and I don't know how this happened, I've got some weird kind of obsession with it.
Which is kind of odd considering what a neat freak I am and that dust, dirt or anything out of place completely freaks me out. I mean, ask the young one about my mental state when I walk in the kitchen and the pantry door has been left open.
But seriously, I'm like, Oooohhh...what shall I watch? The Block? Nah. Wait, maybe I'll just watch 10 minutes... and then Boom! there I am.
However, I was really disturbed last night because they talked about the twins being cyber bullied. Apparently, they are being hammered on Social Media and they got sent home for a few days break. To get away from the pressure.
And this really upsets me.
I mean, if you're asking my personal opinion, they're not my favourite team. I am a Ling and Zing fan because they're just so totally random that you've got to love them.
But I'm getting off my subject.
Just because I'm not a fan of the girls doesn't mean that I am ok with them being bullied.
I think it is a truly cowardly and small minded thing to do.
To judge, find them lacking and then make them feel small because you don't agree with them or like their ways is just not cool.
They don't deserve that.
In fact, no one does.
But being behind a computer screen makes some people brave.
To become bigger than they really are. To be important by making someone else less.
And it's so easy to put someone down on Social Media. Because there's no comeback. No repercussions so to speak. Well, there's no repercussions for you writing the bad stuff but what about the person you're writing about?
Do they deserve you banging on them because they don't think like you, or talk like you or dress like you? Does this continue to the colour of their skin, their religion, their sexual orientation?
Is someone only ok if they are like you?
Yeah, it's a bit uncomfortable when you think of it like that. And so it should be.
I could go on but I'm not going to. What I am going to do though is leave you with this...
Calling me fat doesn't make you skinny, sister.
Wishing you much love and abundance and a truly courageous heart.
