Our Perception-of anything. Our reality is reality in our eyes!!
Friday, November 08, 2013
Hi there Sparkies!! Well it is Saturday yet again and I have just come from facebook. I shouldn't really be online right now, the house is a mess and we are having family around but I am not sure which day today or tomorrow and what time. My sister will text a short time before she intends to come, and if I say can you come a bit later or tomorrow then she might say she'll come next weekend. That's just the way it goes with my lovely sister. As for my brother well I am picking he will come tomorrow. And yeah I know family shouldn't judge, but all families are different and I don't want the house too messy when they come. So, what am I doing here huh?? My beautiful-now 17 year old daughter was laughing and telling me for years I have had "I am intertested in men and women" in the "about" part in facebook. And to me, it meant for friendship, but to Sammy and I guess other young ones it meant sexuality. Now she or I were not laughing or debating about what's others sexuality is and judging. Sammy and I both love people and try our best not to judge. Sammy is very tolerant of people in general. I asked the question as my status what others thought of that question "interested in-men or women". And my friends were saying they either weren't sure, or friendship. I just thought, I might tag it to Sammys page and see what responce I get. It doesn't bother me either way. But it all boiled down to "perception", it is all about perception and how you see or perceive things. And even where we are at healthwise also comes down to perception or believing. We believe what we believe, and we will continue to do that. If we believe the glass is half empty,half full or even cracked well that's the way that we see it. If we believe we "can" do something we give ourselves a greater chance of making that reality. But if we believe we can't do something ,then that notion could be a little hard to change. It is all up to how we perceive a situation. "I'm fat, oh no I will always be fat. Nothing will ever change and I will always look and feel so unattractive". That is one perception (not mine) . "I am a long way from being the shape and size that I want to be, but I know I will get there. I can do this and I will do it, I will get slim and healthy-yes I will I know I can"!! Our perception is our reality, and it doesn't matter what anyone else's is, that is ours.
And on the note about reality, it is true in my mind that if I leave the house in a mess, and smelling of pets my sister will notice it. Which is a bummer really, coz I better go and clean up a little. I hope you are having a great day and that the weekend will be a wonderful one. I weighed in just to let myself know where I was at after all the over eating of junk food. And I even ended up being bad yesterday as well. The damage is one kilo up-so 11 kilo down again now. I was expecting tha it could have been worse than that. But up is not the direction I intend to go, so I have some work to do!!
