#OWP #WOTDC: Envision

What timing, and quite the suitable word, for The Word of the Day Challenge. It’s also called #OneWordPrompt, I believe.

Today, the world is envision. As I sit here, on 18, February, 2019… Known as President’s Day, in my country, I can’t help but to feel a melting pot of emotions.

In high school, my History teacher, Mr. Kidder, taught the foundations of this country… Or so they (our government) had lead me to believe.

He taught me Christopher Columbus discovered this “new land”…. He taught of the pilgrimage John Smith endured, and the Native American people he encountered. He taught about the wars, and slavery, the greatness of President Lincoln and President Jackson.

I felt proud to be American,…. And ashamed of my leaders. This established feeling escalated through my early adult years, learning the hidden truths of history.

There’s so much our government hasn’t told us. There’s so much more to US History, that paints a heartbreaking picture. I’m not proud of our leaders. I can’t say I’m proud of many of our Presidents. Their choices haven’t been to establish equality for all… And they’ve done so with utter disgraceful lies and secrecy.

This is “Adam Ruins Everything “… You may find yourself questioning what you thought to be truth, as well.

Listen Carefully

Fandango’s Provocative Question

His question:

“What is more important to you, doing the right thing or doing things right?”

In my opinion, it’s equally important to do the right thing AND to do things right.

Sometimes, we don’t know how to do things right. When we haven’t been taught a skill, it’s likely we’ll first do it incorrectly. Thereafter, it’s important that we do it right.

Now on the other hand, doing the right thing is usually pretty clear. It’s the choice that falls in line with the laws and ethics. This choice reflects a person’s character. This is important because it keeps us safe and secure. It keeps the peace, so they say.

Of the two, being that we don’t always know the right thing or how to do something right, it’s important we take the opportunities to grow and learn.


#9. Do your actions match your words 🤔?

Wow, they aren’t messing around with getting to the real stuff lol. For the most part, I do think so. I’m careful to say what I feel (which can be a downfall like when it comes to insecurities).

#10. One thing you learned about yourself last year.

I learned that I can drive the interstate without fear. With vertigo, I developed such a great fear of “driving fast”. I now have medication and can drive the main roads without anxiety.


Do you find yourself telling little white lies? Do your words and deeds match? In 2018, what did you discover about yourself? New talent? Root to an obstacle getting in your way?

Sight Word- Beginning 2 Read


Completely random, but many can benefit from this. As adults , we teach children what words are, mean, and how to spell. Some words can be read by letter sound combinations…. others have to be read simply by “sight” , hence “sight words”! My Kindergarten is learning several this year. As children, learning sight words through sentences and stories help them better retain the information. This process teaches kids that words have meanings and how it fits in a story.

This website has a collection of “Sight Word Readers”…. 42 TOTAL!!! For free! Simply print and staple, and any child can get a super jumpstart on reading!

I wish someone was this excited to help me when I was her age. I hope this is helpful for someone out there.

Leader vs Royal

Writing for the Your Daily Word Prompt for today:D : imperious

Despite his royal status, and the endless riches, despite his physical difficulties, during his reign as a young man, he never grew imperious in character. He was Pharoah; but he behaved as would any male his age. I admire this about him because those years are emotionally confusing and hormonal.

Super interesting article about the aspect of his character.

Credit the Source

It’s flattering to reference an individual of any talent, as long as credit is rightfully acknowledged. We are all gifted with blessings, and what a world it is to have access to them. Our lives are better, more enriched. It’s the respect of due credit that displays thanks and appreciation for the gift.

America, The Beautiful by Sean Brown – Inmate Blogger

Everyday we see the effects of what happens when people refuse to take accountability & to Think for themselves. The fear-inducing rhetoric, hatemongering, & blatant presentation of falsehoods used by the politicians & corporate elitists of today have become the modus operandi rather than just the subliminal bully tactics of the past. When a person…

I’m so thankful to live this life, open-hearted to “the possible”… With faith bigger than fear, and my eyes focused on truths. So much could destroy me… Bitter my heart, send me down a dark rabbit hole… I Know that my ONLY limitation is myself… And I’m entirely too curious and stubborn to get in my own damn way!

Signs & Symptoms

Just as with other illness, prevention is key! To keep a cold away, doctors recommend individuals wash hands, keep hands away from the mouth, cover a sneeze or cough with an elbow or tissue.

Occasionally, we miss something though. Before long, someone in the family is feverish, grumpy with no appetite. The symptoms were there, and actions are taken to stop the illness from progressing.

Each mental illness has it’s own set of signs and symptoms. These are extremely important because a mental illness isn’t as obvious to the world around us.. it’s the invisible battle.

The common warning signs are the following:

  1. Major changes in sleep, eating habits, and personal care habits.
  2. Quick or dramatic changes in mood.
  3. Disinterest in events, people, activities that were once enjoyed.
  4. Descrease in effort into tasks: work, home, activities.
  5. Increase difficulty with concentration on memory or thought and speech that’s complex.
  6. Increase in sensitivity, easily overwhelmed and avoids such situations.
  7. Apathy
  8. Feeling a sense of out of the body. Disconnected from own thoughts, life, and surroundings.
  9. Illogical reason such as that in the childhood stage.
  10. Peculiar and bizarre behavior.

    We shall see 🤷🏼‍♀️ Thankfully, I have my options 🙂

    The war on plastic straws is here, and you’re going to need to know what your options are.

    “Bee” No one but Yourself

    Bees really are some cool little dude… And Queen. I didn’t realize how much they impact food production. I didn’t realize the value of honey, and the work required to make it. This morning, while enjoying my cup of coffee, I did alittle studying. Here’s a cute YouTube video about then, and some info graphs.
