#3000chairs Stand Up for the child refugees of Syria

Blogizing attempt of an 'empty chair'

Jackie Morris, an artist and writer has started a campaign on twitter #3000chairs based upon this story of a Syrian child refugee: one day a child refugee visited a local school to join in a lesson, the teacher told the child he could not stay as there was no chair for them to sit. The next day the child returned with a broken chair and asked “can I stay now”.

These children have been torn away from their families, whilst having to leave their own country due to war. I feel ashamed that our government voted against taking these child refugees. If they have no parents then who will care for them? It does not matter where these children are from….they are our children. We have one world…and we are all the same. Human beings! STAND UP and join in this awareness raising campaign #3000chairs. Draw or paint your own, or share the story or write a letter to your MP…whatever you choose let’s make a difference to our children’s future.

Stuck in Second Gear

Some days she finds it so hard to motivate herself….it can be past eleven before she can drag herself out of bed.  She has little in her life which seems to inspire her but when she gets a sudden wave she knows she has to run with it, because it never lasts long.  There is not much that seems to keep her interested.  She is just floating along, in second gear, no up no downs, no excitement….almost feels like nothing…

It has not always been this way, she remembers the days when she felt a tingle of excitement at daily things which happened in her life, everything was colourful.  She was happy and despite difficulties she always got through it.  Sometimes she actually enjoyed the obstacles.  She cannot pinpoint the day where she became stuck in second gear.  She does not feel bad enough to be in first gear…crawling along at 10 mph, or worst still at a complete stop.  But second gear, lets face it she is coasting.  Coasting through life.

What happened to the girl that always flew through life at 60 miles per hour, living life in the fast lane.  Full of ambition, knowing that what she wanted in life she would get….

That girl has not disappeared she is still here, and she is desperately trying to shift back up in gears.  She is assessing her life and re-focusing her energies on what she wants.  She will be back achieving what she wants in life, it may just take some time.

I WILL NOT GIVE UP

Kindness is not a weakness, do not let people take advantage!

Yesterday I had an epiphany. I realised I had been allowing a couple of people in my life the power to make me feel inferior and useless, even though all I have ever done is my best to accommodate them. I have decided I will mot allow them this power. My feelings come from within and I will not allow these outsiders to distract and intimidate me.

Take control, no one has the right to ‘rock’ you.

Loving a hippie

To society hippies are dreadlocks and harem pants, pot smoking bums who rarely get a wash. 

Being a hippie is not about how you look its about how you act and the beliefs you have. Its about being a nice person, approaching things from love,about not being afraid to be creative in arts, music and dance. Free spirits who are thankful for what they have in life. 

If only more of society, especially people in power could adapt this way of thinking the world would be a better place.

Power to the hippies ✌
