Not lost in my bedroom

Look in those places the old UK pound might be hid,

To the shop or the bank ASAP please bring,

As next week, they will not be worth a F***ing thing!

Upcycle old mags

So a lot of old magazines did not sell in the charity shop.  So I went through them to check and a lot were the same size and I started thinking…

It ends up with some unfinished upcycling sitting there for another day, and I’m cool with that.

Stuffed Get

People buy new stuff and then dump it (rinse and repeat).  A lot of stuff doesn’t ever go away.   A lot of it can be used or repurposed or recycled.  Yet it gets dumped and the land fills with what could have been, and the land fills with what could have been, and the landfills are unseen, and the land fills with what could have been (rinse and repeat).

The proceeds of wants, while haves and little greeds,

Sit closely by the checkout,

While the here’s already and great big needs,

Lay desperately by the without.

Threats perceived

Perceived threat mildWe’re all going to react to threats in different ways.

How we react will be an indication of where we are in relation to the threat,

who we are at the time and how we perceive everything.

Perceived threat massive

The threat suddenly appears or creeps up to us and we will react.

There is then a great need to perceive things as compassionately as possible

and not to waste any time we have, living in fear or being cruel.  World earth

Two words with their differences and yet the same:  World / Earth.   Two words with their differences and yet the same:  Me / You.

I feel that anyone who knows how to keep the sanctity of peace around them, please step up your game.

Lost in the sofa

How easy to make money is,

When a treasury is what you own,

But wait, make old become out of date,

Then sit back and laugh upon your throne!

 

For ordinary folk:  Spend that old £1 coin,

Or donate it ASAP,

As just after the end of this month,

In shops, it’s as worthless as can be!

Note:  Apparently, after the 15th October 2017, businesses can refuse to accept the old UK round one colour £1 coins.

 

 

 

Capsule Wardrobe

So you may ask “What is a capsule wardrobe Bexy?” and my rough answer is:

  1. Just the right amount of clothes (whatever you think need & have space for).
  2. Things you love to wear in your style and colour choice.
  3. Things that go together to mix & match including shoes and scarfs.

Capsule wardrobeHow to:

  1. Take absolutely everything out of your wardrobe, your draws etc… and plonk it on your bed (at this point you might panic, so move swiftly onto number 2).
  2. Go an put the kettle on, make some nice fruity tea, drink tea, come back to the room as soon as you are calm again, preferably within the same day.
  3. Place those items you’ll NEVER ~ EVER want to wear again into a Red Cross donation bag (even the raggity ones, because they will not be wasted, but go for rags and make money for the charity too).
  4. Assess what’s left and see if you have a style of things you love wearing and put them back (there might be some that need to go under the bed just in case you think you might want them later, including repeats of the same top).
  5. Put clothes you want to upcycle into a separate place, safe, but NOT into your wardrobe.
  6. You might at some point want to weed out colours that don’t make you feel happy.

Notes:

  1. People are not dolls, you don’t have to match your clothes, but take note that the truth be told and it is that the majority of sheepeople take a lot at face value.
  2. Please don’t be a sheepeople and judge others by what they wear. 

 

Gypsy folk

choiceMy life has and is blessed by knowing folks from the gypsy and traveller community, just as it has been blessed by those associated with other communities.

We are not separate from each other due to labels given us or ones we give ourselves.  We are parts of the same.

The possibility to do good and other possibilities are in us all.  It is a beautiful and sometimes courageous thing to build on the good under fire and encourage others in the direction of peace.

My mind can hear that loud cry  “Any i’er, any i’er, any rag bone?” “Any i’er, any i’er, any rag bone?” from one of the kindest, most thoughtful person who helped me out during a very difficult time.  I also recall many other gypsy folks with things to help in their bags, things to bless in their pockets and the fella that sharpened mothers scissors, the knife grinder.  I feel we have to keep the choices open, safe and help each other to be ourselves.

Other’s life as precious as yourn or mine.
