The mental law of correspondence says that our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. By focusing on the traits and characteristics we would like to have, we begin immediately to attract them into our life. Affirmations are a great way to keep our minds focused and our thoughts positive. As Claude Bristol says, “It’s the…

This is such a valuable post. The number one reason why I LOVE this is because it DOES challenge me to try new genres, word structures, vocabulary exc. Hope you enjoy 🙂
I was hoping to find this list:D Doesn’t it feel wonderful when you find something little that makes like easier by leaps and bounds? Through the Friday Fictioneers, I’ve been challenged to research and explore unfamiliar grounds. Before this year, I would have ran in the opposite direction at the sniff of a challenge! That…

Concept: To write everything and anything that comes to mind about the Daily Random Word.
It can be incomplete thoughts listed, a short story, a personal story, personal reflection, memories, whatever you want it to be. The idea is to get everything out. Once you’ve done that, you can return to these posts and use the ideas in your writing.
I remember when… Those funny words used when a delicious dusted off story, is about to begin. It’s likely, this story, to begin for the eight hundredth thirty seventh time.
As the story goes, I remember when I was your age. My elementary school was about ten-fifteen minutes from home, and my father was the principal. We would arrive every morning, usually before every other students, and leave after all were gone.
Within nearly every classroom, was a black chalkboard, framed with a chalk ledge at the bottom. Oh the mess that could make. The teachers did well keeping it contained! Along with the standard presentation equipment, some teachers had a three prong chalk holder. It increased legibility greatly. In addition, of course was an eraser.
For me, I had received an exciting pencil box, full of school supplies. A brand new set of crayons, glue, scissors, pencils, and an eraser. I was elated! When it was necessary, a student was raise his/her hand, and proceed to the pencil sharpener. The grinding sound was so loud; but, it was our normal.
Years passed and I made it to 8th grade. Technology advanced in the years, as well. I remember sitting in class, and asked a classmate to barrow a lead pencil! It was the coolest moment ever. The eraser came out from the back; I would insert a stick of mercury the size of a hair strand; then reinsert the eraser.
Soon, lead pencils were everywhere. Everyone had one, or five. The chalkboards were being archived while whiteboards were installed. Multiple colored ink pens even showed up in my life! Neato isn’t it??!! At that time, it was really cool!
Oh my gosh yes, the pencils with multiple tips stacked atop one another inside the pencil itself. That was another lovely toy for class.
Overtime, all of that vanished. Today, it’s a rarity to see a pencil sharpener in a classroom. Kids , before they even hit Kindergarten, are using their finger or these plastic replicas (styluses) to do the writing… on iPads and touch screens. They don’t even voluntarily handwrite that often.
It’s crazy how “historic” a pencil is; but, years ago, people said the same about my (at this time) 8 channel double knobbed color tv.
Good Morning Y’all. My brain is going a mile a minute, despite my lack of coffee intake. That’s very unusual, but, that’s the perfect adjective to describe my life right now.
It’s Thursday, a cold 25 degrees. I already miss summer. We’re up, getting my older daughter ready for school. She’s not entirely recovered from her head cold, but she’s feeling better. Calandra is doin ok. She’s mommy’s little sweet pea cuddle bug.
I’m alright, I suppose. One day at a time, working through the intensity of my emotions. Are there any other HSP’s or INFJs in the nearby blogosphere? If you know of someone, please introduce him/her to me. Anyway, back to these emotions. What I don’t understand makes me frustrated… When I get frustrated, I cry. Sometimes, I don’t believe it’s because of what initially happened, but some other aspect of the situation. For example, I’m not sad that my ex and I are not together, but how it happened has me really shook up.
Since I don’t go out much, I socialize on apps. This one has been my favorite by far. I can’t imagine my life without writing. Of course I don’t feel I’m a big deal, or that I even write exceptionally well. I do feel writing is an outlet for me to convey my thoughts. It’s a platform (that’s the word I was trying to find the other day! Facepalm) to release and create. The possibilities are endless, and my thoughts are on paper. I can create a short story about a love I wish happened to me.. or an ending I feel better suited for my ex. It’s my writing, and I may write as I please. There’s so much freedom in that.
Ok, well you all have a fantastic Thursday. The weekend is almost here. Keep warm if you’re in that part of the globe. Keep an eye out for future posts.
What I was never taught, or what was tempted to be forced into my life, I learned on my own. I knew there were skills I needed for survival. I knew there was responsibility I needed, rather than burdening someone else with it.
What I would teach my younger self about life is the following :
Failure doesn’t mean unsuccessful, but rather an opportunity to try again.
I am capable of so much more than I realize.
Trying means I’m willing to learn.
Knowing my personality type will change my life.
Trust my intuition.
A man knows and shows when he wants, if I’m questioning it, move on.
Years become wisdom and tears become flowers.
Lies can sound convincingly truthful, but they’re not.
Know my worth and don’t let any man change them.
Be confident in my decisions, humble in acceptance, forgiving of mistakes, and unconditional with love.
Face my life as it comes, denial just delays the progress of progress.
Music is free therapy.
Writing things down allows me to discover patterns.
Cooking is actually fun.
Vertigo is treatable, and nothing of which to be afraid.
Emotional attention given /received from someone other than partner
Lack of willingness to understand
Choose not to communicate effectively
Found at the bottom of a bottle
Doing what you want over what you need to do
Incapable of working through conflict
Unaccountable of self
I thought I knew what love was, but I didn’t. I didn’t love myself ; therefore, I couldn’t have loved anyone else. I do know, though, that I’m seeking it now. I’m seeking it deep within myself and the best version of it with another. Years and years of a marriage, two individuals had surely learned along the way. I want that.

” There is agreement among science, medicine and metaphysics that certain frequencies can repel disease, and certain frequencies can destroy disease. Herein lies the link between frequency (vibration) and health. Everything in nature vibrates at different frequencies. In fact quantum physics describes the universe as nothing more than vibrating strings of energy! Scientific research has shown that different parts of our bodies have their own sonic signature. In other words the sound of the cells of your heart differs from the sound of the cells of your kidney. “~ Dawn James
It’s incredible what we are capable of, and many are so unaware of it! Different specialized areas of Science have proven that vibrations can heal our bodies. They have proven that we are more than matter, collective in a form we recognize, in a certain frequency. Our health is affected by the frequencies around us.

Thank you, Keep It Alive, for such a cheeky and pleasant post!! I chuckled as I read what happened.
It reminds us that life really should be lived, and that we should allow ourselves the laughter rather than carry embarrassment. I’ve had a few instances where I truly embarrassed myself. What are you to do though? There’s nothing that can change the situation, and there’s nothing that can prevent mistakenly awkward from reoccurring… So, just laugh out loud, bid them good day, and be on your way😂😂
