Since I have been blogging I have become a bit of a people watcher. Well in fact a world watcher if there is such a thing . I watch people, animals, the sky, the sunrise, the sunset. I even watch where I go, not that I usually wander around in a daze, more on autopilot you know the routine as well as me. Wake up, cup of tea, get a shower, make up, hair, get dressed, go to work, come home, shower and bed, more or less.
I have done this so often I am on autopilot these days as I am sure millions of people around the world are. The thing is do you even notice the world around you? I thought I did but maybe not! I walk around the town I live in these days and I’m amazed by how much I have not even noticed so I thought I would share some of my photos I’ve taken recently of the things I’ve never noticed before that are right on my own door step. Not a bad place to live!! Why don’t you have a good look around on your way to work and message me with what you saw that you missed before!
Anyway one reason why I’m writing this post is to try to get people to be more aware of their surroundings in which they are living. The main reason was not the buildings, all the scenery, it was the people. I get angry with the way people are with each other and even despair about how we treat others but then again I’ve come to realise there are still some really good people out there in the world.
I recently wrote a few poems when I’ve been feeling down. I’ve been feeling down more than usual a past few months for reasons I won’t go into but this last 2 weeks have been especially hard as I’ve had the resurfacing of my neuralgia. I thought doctor’s had it under control and for a while they did. I was pain-free for what was around 6 months. Then a couple of weeks ago and my ear started hurting again. AAARRRGGGHHH!!! not again this in turn led to me being a long-term bad mood with respite only when I can dose myself up on tablets. (not the best choice but so far my only choice)
I wrote a poem called Help Me. If you haven’t seen it it’s on my blog. Out of the blue I’ve had several comments and even offers of help first I felt shocked then a massive feeling of hope came over me and a massive grin to my face. Then as I read the comments I had an overwhelming feeling it is true there are some caring people out in the world and their responses I had were really heartwarming. They are even from people who have suffered a lot more than I have.
I found when people have suffered the same they know your pain, they feel your pain, other people suffering the same pain. I’d like to say to those people on my blog comments (you know you are) how grateful I am for your comments offers of help and support thank you. As it just reminded me that in general I am a really positive person who wakes up with a smile on her face but I forgot for a while and let my crazy brain, (this is my pet name for my sad, unhappy bad side of me. No offence ment.) creep up and start taking over when usually I have a handle on it so bye-bye crazy brain hello sane brain.
If I can help any of you with anything that sounds familiar in this post or just anything in general please please message me and I will try my best to help you every time.
On a lighter note just to end this blog do you ever see weird things on your way to work these are the photos of some of the weird and wonderful things I have spotted on my way to and from or even during my lunch. If you can you match the level of weird and wonderful let me know!
Feeling more like me….
