Did I leave the iron on?
I'm not getting paid for today
I still don't have my new debit card
Didn't I buy lettuce yesterday?
I SWEAR I got it, I can picture it
I can't find the lettuce, where is it?
HOW do I get groceries without cash or a debit card?
Do they still take checks in 2015?
Do I still HAVE checks?
WHERE the H-E-double-hockey-sticks IS my lost coat?
Who was I supposed to call today?
The weird disease I recently found out I have (it's NOT life threatening, but all of my nails may disappear and they don't know how to stop it, or what causes it, or what.)
Anyway, I definitely cannot pick one topic to write a post about, except a project I learned about last week. It's a project called "1,000 Voices For Compassion." A great idea.
This is the idea in a nutshell, prompted by all the terrible-awful items in the news nationally and world-wide:
Let's get 1000 bloggers to write posts about compassion, kindness, support, caring for others, non-judgement, care for the environment etc, and ALL PUBLISH ON THE SAME DAY (Feb 20th) to flood the Blogosphere with GOOD! Use the hashtag #1000Speak to promote this event.
Even though I'm not what you would call a 'serious writer' or a good writer, or even a 'good person' I will be putting some words and sentence-type phrases together. If for no other reason than Life is hard, but together we're strong. And you know, helping other humans and whatnot.
|Really jumping on a theme w/pics today|
This project already has over 825 writers, so chances are there will plenty of people who use the English language correctly.
What this world needs, IMHO, is compassion in many different voices, from many different backgrounds, coming together to improve our overall communication. Not just with proper grammar and you know, 'complete sentences' but also with terrible jokes and borderline appropriate behavior.
THIS is the voice of my people. We're weird, we walk the line of acceptable, but we're also human, and we can also feel feelings. Even if we try to keep that crap way down in places people don't really talk about at parties.
This movement, and every good movement, needs many voices. YOUR VOICE. You can write about pretty much anything you want. YOUR thoughts on any specific topic, or anything about compassion in general.
Below is the link to the Facebook page, please request to join and get to know the GOOD PEOPLE in this world you always hear about, but rarely run into anymore.
Here is the link to the Facebook page, you can request to join.
I know, if you're anything like me you already belong to 47 Facebook groups and every time you log in, you have 89 notifications because you've given up trying to turn which ones off and whatnot, but this whole thing will be over next month and you can un-join the group, or whatever Facebook calls that.
I feel like I'm old enough now to not keep up on the all the computal lingo, and if not blame my Early Onset Elderly Syndrome. Now turn that damn music down and go and write something nice. And pull your pants up!
