How

I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted on here.

I’ve been waiting for the perfect topic. Well I am so moved right now that I have to say something, after coming across some animal rescue videos.

You can tell that these poor little animals were abused. They are scared. Left in sewers, rivers, side of roads, dumps, even one, near an animal shelter…just so the person wouldn’t have to pay the 25.00 fee for dropping it off.

How can people be so cruel to poor little helpless animals? One, was left for dead with it’s stomach cut open…yet, this sweet, loving, affectionate baby was wagging his tail when someone came to his aid. It makes me so sad that such a loving and helpless little animal would be hurt in such a horrible way.

How can someone do this kind of thing?

How.

There’s many stories of animal abuse out there. But it’s beyond me, knowing, that animals have feelings too. They feel pain, they feel love, and joy. And they give so much love to humans who love them back.

As sad as it is to see the pain they go through, it brings me joy to see the comfort they feel when they are found and taken care of, and loved. But mannn,…think about it people.

All life deserves respect, and love. I don’t care how irritated a person gets, or how one feels at the moment…there’s no way a person should forget how that little life is feeling when it’s mistreated.

Sometimes I just want to go get a hurting puppy and comfort it so that it knows there are people out there who care!

What’s In Your Music?

Okay y’all. I’ve been thinking about music lately. I’m not trying to scare anybody, trust me. I love music. But one time I found out that music can have really bad lyrics.

Sometime ago, I made up my mind that I would never listen to something until I made sure the lyrics were only going to build my mind.

My decision came in, ultimately, because I realized how powerful music can be to our minds. I read an article once where some teens listened to satanic rock music, and that influenced them so powerfully, that they actually went to a park and committed suicide. One of the guys suffered a delayed and painful death, because he didn’t die instantly. He said before he died; (I’m paraphrasing)…. “It was like I couldn’t stop.”

This is serious business. Music is very powerful. It can really draw us in, and especially us youth. We can get so caught up in the beat that we forget everything about what it’s actually saying! Sometimes if you start really paying attention to the lyrics of certain songs, it’s like you can actually feel your IQ dropping by the second. It’s more than just a great beat, and if it’s negative, it can stunt our positive character growth.

If the music promotes violence, inappropriate behaviors, or silly ideas that we wouldn’t DO, then why would we want to listen to it? Why not fill your mind with something that’s going to motivate you to reach higher, to be better in life, to have a positive mood, and to make the right choices?

It really goes beyond music though. Think about the shows on TV, for instance. Or the movies. If it’s violence or inappropriate in the name of ‘entertainment’, personally, I would cut it out. It affects your thoughts more than you realize.

I challenge you to go through your music CD’s and such, and weed out anything that’s negative. You’ll see a big change in your thought process!

Try it. You’ll like it. 🙂

Dress to Respect

You can’t tell everything about a person’s character by how they’re dressed– but you sure can tell this: whether or not they have self-respect.

You might have heard the saying “Dress to impress.” This saying carries a bit of truth, actually.

We demonstrate through how we are dressed whether or not we have respect for ourselves.

We show, in essence, how we expect to be treated. We show either how dignified we are, and that we want others to see us this way, or we can demonstrate that we don’t really care how we get handled, or how we are treated.

We all have different styles and that’s great. We don’t by any means have to be dressed professionally at all times. The point is that it’s wise to dress respectfully at all times.

Now we all have different styles and that’s fab. It makes us unique– whether you prefer dresses or skirts, pants with polka-dots, button-up tops…if you like soft colors, or maybe earthy tones….but when we dress in an inappropriate manner, this is where it begins reflecting on our character.

Who taught our teens and young people that it seems so cool to have clothes that are skimpy, or pants that are — PINNED, can I say, lower than they should. I say pinned, because that’s the only way I can figure out that they stay where they stay.

I have a serious issue with this. I can guarantee you one thing, no one could make it in to see the Queen of England wearing something like that.

It has really become bothersome for me to see this behavior here lately more than ever. Because it’s not just in the local Wal-mart,(sorry Wal-mart fans) or the local mall in town. It’s in my very own neighborhood…. I see it when I look out my window.

If any of my neighbors so occur to be reading this, or any other individuals that I’ve seen dressed this way are reading my blog post, (first off, thanks for reading my blog!) and secondly, I would like to take this opportunity to exhort you:

Please. Want to be appropriate and respectful with your clothing. Show how much respect you have for yourself!

Sometimes it can just mean a few extra seconds when we get ready in the morning to make sure we are dressed appropriate and respectful.

Some may disagree, but our manner of dress is a big factor in defining who we are character wise, and of course, what kind of personality we have.

We can really say a lot just by the clothes we wear. So I challenge you to take a moment to consider what kind of things your clothes are saying to the world.

What do you think? Please let me know if you agree!

Change

Sometimes this one, simple little word can seem oh so hard. When we find out we were wrong, we can feel stuck. It can feel like the murky waters are too deep. Or that we’re too covered in mud. Or….that what if as we try and change we just…cant’ do it

But when it comes down to it, change requires us recognizing that we really can do this- if we only will, and go at it with all our might.

I saw this quote that said if you want something you never had before- you’ve gotta do something you’ve never done before.

How true.

No matter how deep you’ve sunk, there’s always hope where there is life and determination. Never ever give up on yourself or others.
