KINDNESS AND FORGIVENESS

KINDNESS AND FORGIVENESS

Kindness is not holding a grudge 

Over someone who has hurt you

In some way and/or betrayed you.

Kindness is forgiving that so-called

Friend or enemy when you don’t 

Want to. Kindness and forgiveness

Gives you many benefits you and lets

You smile more so people will

Want to be around you more.

Holding a grudge and not

Forgiving someone will make you

Miserable and other people won’t 

Want to be around you. So instead of

Holding a grudge over someone

Forgive, Forgive, Forgive them and

You’ll find that you’ll be so happy 

About being happy that you’ll 

Never want to hold a grudge again.

 

#Bullying, #Depressing News, #Be Positive

Everyone has their routine and something tells me watching the news falls in your routine somewhere. If it doesn’t, you’re lucky because the news is usually depressing anyway unless you have something like Royal wedding or a bunch of ducklings being rescued from a sewer drain and reunited with the mother duck(which actually did happen).

In my part of the world(don’t know about yours) the news is talking about bullying, sexual assault accusations, Trump canceling and un-canceling the summit with North Korea,  a lot of protesting over blacks getting shot and even more depressing news which I’m not going to list. I’m not trying to be mean but if you don’t follow commands you might get shot.

#BULLYING

#Bullying is very real. Bullying not only happened when I went to school and it happened a lot. Only Back then it wasn’t called bullying it was called being picked on continuously. Today some children that are bullied they take what they think the easy way out which is suicide. Also, please note that bullying can lead to sexual assaults. I found 2 flow charts on dealing with bullying. Actually, the charts deal with bullying and suicide. The charts are below. Please note that most of the time  the percentage of girls who thought about suicide and/or attempted suicide is higher than the boys.

THIS CHART IS ABOUT THOUGHTS ABOUT SUICIDE VS. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE IN BOYS AND GIRLS.

THIS CHART IS ABOUT SUICIDE RATES, BY REGION. ’05 TO ’14.

#DEPRESSING NEWS

#Depressing News is very real. I hate to say it but if you watch the news then your bound to come across depressing news daily. Actually, my solution to this problem is simple don’t watch the news. Oh I know what your probably thinking how am I supposed to find out the weather? Ever hear of a smart phone or a computer. Most of you have a smart phone and/or computer so check the weather that way. I found a link online that sends me Weather Updates twice a day, Amber Alerts(if there are any), Weather Alerts when warnings and/or watches are issued for the county I live in( which is Butler County), I get notified when there are recalls and so much more. I love this link.

#POSITIVE SOLUTIONS

#Positive Solutions is actually very simple.  I’m sure there are more positive solutions than what I’m going to list but if you think of additional solutions that’s great. Also, please feel free to let me know by using the contact form or comment form below my solutions.

MY SOLUTIONS FOR BULLYING

  1. Don’t bully anyone yourself.
  2. Try to prevent bullying before harm comes to either party.
  3. Keep encouraging your child or young adult and encourage the person who’s doing the bullying and you might see a change but there’s never any guarantees.
  4. Stay positive and give a friendly smile no matter what you’re feeling about the person.
  5. If you know that someone is think about committing suicide, GET THEM HELP RIGHT AWAY!!
  6. Learn the signs of someone wanting to commit suicide. One main sign is:
  • When they start giving their stuff away for no reason.

MY SOLUTIONS FOR DEPRESSING NEWS

  1. Don’t watch it.
  2. Only watch the non-depressing news(if there is any).
  3. Focus on the positive.
  4. Repeat 1, 2, & 3.

A MOTHER’S DAY POEM

51d03b56a5ae8e50912675b1de83ab50afdd6db7

A MOTHER’S DAY POEM

POEM BY: CRYSTAL STEWART

WRITTEN ON: 5-08-2018

My loving Mother

You’ve loved me and took care of me

From the time I was conceived

And you continued to love me

Even into adulthood despite all my faults.

My loving Mother, you’re my personal

Daily angel that the Lord sent me so

You would bring me happiness and encouragement 

Daily and I love you so much for that.

On this Mother’s Day Mother,

I want to tell you how much 

I love you and how grateful I am

You are my Mother and

I want you to know I love you for it too.

 

To All The Mother’s Out There And To Everyone Else, I Want To Wish You A Very Happy Mother’s Day.

3 Seasons In One Day

COLOURS OF A RAINBOW ON MEMORIAL DAY IN THE EVENING OF 5-29-2017.

Friday was an interesting day weather wise. Here in my little town in the country here in Pennsylvania you can have anywhere from 3 to 4 seasons in one day if conditions are right.  Guess What? the conditions were right to get 3 seasons in one day.

First, we had spring weather where the sunshine was out and warming things then we had Summer where we got thunderstorms and wind and finally we had our third season of the day which was Fall where we got garden style rain. But that’s not all we got. We were blessed with a rainbow and partial double rainbow. I thought I would write a poem about yesterday’s seasonal events. Sorry about the pictures being so dark but I took them in the rain. The rainbow and start of the other rainbow were much brighter and more beautiful than the pictures show.

Enjoy The Poem I Wrote.

 

THREE SEASONS IN ONE DAY

POEM BY: CRYSTAL STEWART

WRITTEN ON: 4-28-2018

Friday we got three seasons in one day.

Our first season started when I awoke to

Birds singing and the sunshine providing a

Nice orange glow warming the sky so

I could work outside. Then in the

Early evening came our second season which

Was Summer, we got wind and thunderstorms

Then soon after the second season,

We had our third season which was Fall.

Our Fall season brought us wind and a

Garden style rain. However, while staying

Inside and off the computer due to  thunder,

I noticed something bright and beautiful outside. 

It was a beautiful rainbow but at closer look,

I noticed another rainbow started over the

Full rainbow I saw. It was a double rainbow.

We were blessed with a beautiful double rainbow.

It was absolutely beautiful.

Washing Your Face

DSCN0467

WELCOME

Hello and welcome readers, I just got done doing the Beauty Tag that the amazing and awesome Simple Serenity’s blog. I was contacted about question #15. The person who contacted me was the amazing and awesome da-AL from HAPPINESS BETWEEN TAILS and suggested a post on #15.

INTRODUCTION

The question I was asked about was How Many Times Do You Wash Your Face Daily? Here is my answer for question #15. This may sound crazy but due to my sensitive skin, I don’t wash my face daily but only a few times a week. Everyone has their own Beauty/skin routine that they go through each day or each week and I’m no different. But how do we decide how many times we was our face? In my experience, it’s through trial and error and once you figure it out, you get rid of the previous skin routine and start a new one that’s better for you and your skin.

SKIN/BEAUTY ROUTINE

When you know what type of skin you have it is easier to know what type of skin routine you need to start. When I started my skin routine in my younger years, I washed my face daily then put on my makeup. Now that I’ve gotten older, my skin/beauty routine has had a complete makeover. I don’t wash my face daily anymore in fact, I wash my face weekly and the only makeup I wear is either chapstick, lip gloss or lipstick.

REASONS FOR CHANGING YOUR SKIN/BEAUTY ROUTINE

There are many reasons for changing your skin/beauty routine. Below are some of those reasons.

  • Skin type gets more sensitive as you age.
  • You clean your skin with one of those makeup remover wipes.
  • Your skin is tightening too much.
  • You might be getting those dreaded wrinkles.
  • You become allergic.

MY REASONS FOR CHANGING MY SKIN/BEAUTY ROUTINE

My reasons fit in with the first two. I found out my skin was becoming more sensitive when I found out while working I was allergic to ALL makeup. Yes, I said All makeup including that makeup made for sensitive skin. I also used makeup wipes which worked for a while until my face started going red. Not Good.

MY SKIN/BEAUTY ROUTINE NOW

My skin/beauty routine is so much simpler now. In fact, I wash my face with cold water once to twice a week  and I don’t use soap. Sound crazy? For me it dries out my face. The only makeup used now is chapstick and I wear lipstick or lip gloss when I go out somewhere.

CONCLUSION

Everybody’s will have a different skin/beauty routine because everyone has different skin types. Whether you use makeup remover wipes to clean your face, wash your face with soap and water, wash your face with just water or maybe you have another way you take care of your skin. I’m interested in knowing your skin type and also your before and after story of why you changed your skin/beauty routine. Please use the contact form below.

BEAUTY TAG

DSCN0467Hello everyone and welcome. Simple Serenity has done a Tag called the Beauty Tag and nominated everyone who reads her post which can be found HERE. Please understand my answers will be from when I was younger mostly since I’m allergic to ALL makeup I’ve tried. I want to Once Again, I want to thank Simple Serenity for nominating everyone who read her post/blog.

1.) What do you love about makeup? 

When I wore makeup  I loved it because it covered up my blemishes. It also made me look good too.

2.) How long does it take for you to do your makeup?

When I wore makeup it took anywhere 5 to 10 minutes. Since I only where lipstick or chapstick now it doesn’t take that long.

3.) Do you remember your first makeup item?

NO

4.) Will you leave the house without makeup?

Yes. Since I’m allergic, I do it a lot.

5.) Favorite lipstick?

Anything on sale, right color and as long as it looks good. Favorite — No.

6.) Name a makeup crime that you hate?

There are many but one that comes to mind is when I was in college, a young woman was coming up the hill I was going down and I thought  I’d entered a Halloween party this young woman had that much makeup on and it was on thick and it looked to be in layers too. I could go on and on about this crime but won’t.

7.) What product do you buy mostly?

Lipsticks and glosses. I have a lot.

8.) One makeup product you can do without?

Eyeliners.

9.) Favorite makeup hack?

Always carry a cosmetic mirror/powder to touch up your makeup.

DSCN046810.) Matte lips or Lip gloss?

Glossy lips all the way but sometimes wear matte lipstick.

11.) Do you wear fake eyelashes?

NO.

12.) What is your most cherished beauty makeup product?

Face powder was my most cherished beauty product.

13.) Favorite makeup brand?

Tough question. I really like the Clinique brand.

14.) What is your skin type?

Very Sensitive, Pale, Freckled and normal to oily.

15.) How many times do you wash your face daily?

This may sound crazy but due to my very sensitive skin, I don’t wash my face daily but only a few times a week.

16.) Any Acne story?

Yes. In my younger years, I used an Acne cream to try to get rid of my acne because I knew it worked. I used it this time to get rid of my acne and I broke out with more acne. It had the opposite reaction.

17.) Do you like trying out new skin care products or do you stick to a routine?

Stick to a routine.

18.) Do you think you look good even when you don’t have makeup on?

Absolutely. I love how I look and if other people don’t like how I look, that’s their problem.

Update On Sadie

As many of you know I asked you to share, share and share some more. I asked you to do this because it might help a blind cat who weighs only around 5 pounds. I’m here with an update on sweet Sadie. She is still alive but the outlook is very grim I’m sad to say. I have been just told she may only have a week left before Sadie crosses the Rainbow Bridge. If you know someone who wants a pet and is willing to give them a forever home. Please ask them to give Sadie a forever home. This cat deserves it.

DEER

Deer like most animals~Like to eat~In Fact if you feed Deer, you will probably not only end up feeding the Deer~But you will end up~Feeding other animals too.~When you Feed Deer~The Deer will eventually get to know you~And become Friendly to the Place~Where you can almost walk up to them.~Always remember,~Deer are still wild Animals~And still have instincts~That were born right in them~So always be careful~No Matter what~And to make it more interesting~You might want to get a Game Camera to Watch the Deer~And what else might come along.
