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!!

    I procrastinate on housework too. I will always choose life over housework!! And when possible, will do a quick cleaning here and there.
    At least your sister is giving you a bit of notice. My rude sister said she won't give me any notice. I said, "No notice, don't come at all." Sounds harsh I guess. But I don't appreciate no notice. I don't judge my family either because I already know what they are all about. I quit playing their game a long time ago. And it was very difficult to stay true to myself. I persevered.

    There are a few areas dying to be cleaned at my house. Again. Can so relate as cleaning is never ending. I suggest issuing dark sunglasses to all visitors and have them come over at night, and use just candles for light. Or go out to eat and see a movie. Well, we can dream. Can you pay DD to clean for you while she is young and has lots of energy? My Mom had me clean as a kid as she said I made most the dirt anyway. And was closer to the floor. Have a good visit if you can.

    Food: first Saturday I've been in range in a long time. Weekends are the hardest on me. Try to remember your goals, and I will too.

    Messy house just means you have more fun doing other things emoticon

    My son also says the Facebook "Interested In" section is about your sexuality, but I never thought about it much because I don't have that information entered on mine. Anyway, enjoy your weekend!

    You sound like me. I get on the computer and don't realize how long I'm on it. Then I kick myself because I should be cleaning the house. I found that if I work on a room a day, even if it's just for a half hour, the house doesn't get too bad. But I really need to get my timer out again and set a limit as to how much time I am on the computer. I hope you do enjoy your time with your family.

    House work /rolls it around on the tongue/ Hmm nope I don't know that that is haha!

    I love your story about the interested in men and women lol! I do think it is often perceived as something you fill in if looking for a partner but I can see how it could mean friendship too. I think I've left mine blank.

    Have a great weekend with your family emoticon
