Monogamy in humans!

From a very young age, we are instilled with the value of being monogamous.  From the words of a thousand year old book, to school, and everywhere else, we are taught that being monogamous is the only way to be.  We should only have one partner, and that partner should be of the opposite sex.  Why?  We as humans weren’t meant to be monogamous, we were meant to be polyamourous.  We are informed that if we like someone of the same sex, that we are wrong and going to hell for this.  I call bull on this.  As long as you and your partner are happy, even if you have multiple partners or a partner of the same sex, what’s the big deal?  You’re not harming anybody, and you get to experience new things and perhaps try them with your other partner.  We humans only have a short time on this blue pebble, so why not make it enjoyable?  Enjoy sex, enjoy life, enjoy new experiences, enjoy everything that life has to offer, because inevitably, we are all going to do one thing.  We will cease to exist, we will be buried or cremated, and that will be it for us.  I for one can guarantee that I will enjoy this life, and I will not allow others to control my happiness or well being.  If you need to criticize others about their life, maybe you should look at yours first.  Make sure you’re life is one hundred percent perfect.  That’s all I got for this one, I’ll say goodbye to those that can’t handle this stuff in advance.  And have a beautiful life!

Make love to life!

Life sucks, life’s boring, life hurts, get over it!  Life is what you make it.  You can be whatever you want to be, you can do whatever you want to do.  Maybe life is about helping others, maybe it’s about being happy with what you have?  Maybe it’s enjoying the small things?  It’s not always good, but it is worth it.  You get hurt, you break, you love, you lose.  If you find that person that makes you happy, that is there thru thick and thin, that you would do anything, just to make sure they’re happy.  Hang onto them, don’t let them slip away.  Do everything you can to trust them, and don’t let petty insecurities come between the two of you.  Never abuse their trust, it will never be the same, or it may end your relationship all together.  Nobody is perfect, people make mistakes, just don’t let them mistakes be with someones heart.

We’re only given a short time on this planet, why spend it miserable, when you can make the best of it?  Enjoy time with friends, volunteer, meet new people, have a family, enjoy nature, put down the electronic leash.  Create experiences with the people you love and care about.  Life doesn’t have to be difficult, it can be quite enjoyable.  Quit stressing over things that you can’t change.  There are millions of people that would love to have the life you do.  So stop complaining about it, and enjoy it.  Go to the beach, take a walk in the woods, go look at a waterfall, enjoy the sounds of a babbling brook, sit around a campfire and enjoy the crackling.  Spend the night in a tent, go fishing or hunting, go on a mini vacation right in your own backyard.  Enjoy the air you’re breathing in while out in nature, and for the love of everything holy, put down that cell phone, or tablet, or iPod, or whatever electronic device you may have.  Enjoy the sounds of nature, the sights, the experiences.  Take a bike ride, go rock climbing, sailing, take a canoe down the river.

We have become so enamored with electronic devices, the constant need to know every minute what another person is doing, what they’re eating, who they’re dating.  The question remains, what does it matter?  The main point of life, is to enjoy it.  I’m guilty of this myself, most times I wish cell phones had never even been invented.  Yes they are nice to have, you can keep in touch with a few taps on a screen or a keypad.  But, they have taken over our lives.  They ruin relationships, they make it easier to cheat, they make it easier for people to be able to locate you to a specific location.  They interfere with work.  They interfere with conversations.  They interfere with just about every aspect of life, and we’re only getting worse with them.  Go to a restaurant, or a coffee shop.  Look around, and how many people do you see with their heads pointing down looking at their cell phone?  It’s amazing how a few years can change everything so drastically.

In the end, do what makes you genuinely happy, treat yourself to the simpler things.  Make love to life.  Let other people do what they’re going to do, you aren’t going to change them.  You’ll just end up worrying about something that you can’t change or fix.  Nobody controls your happiness, except you.  So do just that, take control of your happiness and enjoy this short time that you were given.  Nobody was promised forever, it could all end tomorrow.  So make the best of what you have, use your talents, show the world your talent.  Remember to enjoy the small and simple things, memories can last lifetime, make them happy memories.

Truth

You hear it everyday: Tell me the truth, be honest, the truth will set you free, if you don’t lie, you’ll have nothing to remember.  The truth is; most people can’t handle the truth.

For example: Your significant other asks, does this dress make me look fat?  Be honest!  You say no babe, you look great.  If she actually looks bad, you don’t want to tell her that, you will hurt her.  So you tell a little white lie, you look perfectly fine.  This is what most people want, they want to hear what they want to hear, they don’t want the brutal honesty.

We as people like to hear what makes us feel good.  We don’t want the whole truth, we need, we crave them little white lies.  This is how it all starts, a little white lie here, a little bigger lie there.  Than it all starts snowballing, we go crazy with lies.  If we’re honest all the time, it hurts loved ones, we lose friends, people tell you, you don’t care about anyone but yourself.  Yes it will hurt, yes you will lose friends, but it needs to be done, for yourself and the people around you.

Start being honest with yourself, be honest with others.  Do you really want people that lie around you?  Do you need that negativity, that deceitfulness?  I want others to be honest with me.  Does it hurt, oh hell yeah it hurts, but you know what?  It needs to be done, honesty needs to be there.  Tell me the truth, I don’t need liars around me, and I will be honest with you.

Do what you need to do to make your life better.  Be honest, treat others with respect, and expect the same from them.  Those that lie have no respect for themselves, or for you.

You only have this one life, live it honestly, be yourself, do what’s right, and most importantly: enjoy your life.  Once you start telling the truth, and others start being honest with you, you will be amazed at the results.

Well, that’s it for this blog, soon as I think of the next topic, I will post another.

Humanity

I wake up everyday with hope, hope that it is a good day, hope that people will be decent, hope that the future generation is learning.

However, everyday that hope is shattered. I am losing my hope for the human race. Children and young adults have no respect for their elders. People can’t spell, they fight over the most meaningless things, and whatever they happen to be doing is more important than anything you may have to do. Most of the time, these people are willing to end a life, just to be sure that there selfish desires are met.

 It appears most of the people on this earth, are here just to serve themselves. 

Most people are fixated on a broken government, and how their party will fix all the problems.  News flash: it hasn’t happened yet, it isn’t going to in the future.  Time to get rid of both outdated parties, and start a whole new government.   

People complain about their jobs.  If you have a job, that is great, if you have a job where you are making over 40,000 a year, quit your bitching, suck it up, and do the damn job.  I don’t want to hear whining and complaining about how bad your life is and how much your job sucks.  You chose to do it, you choose to stay, so do it. If you are making over 80,000 a year, I sure as hell don’t want to hear you bitching about it. You are making twice as much as a lot of people, if you don’t like it give it up for someone else to do.  I’m quite certain there are many people who would love to have your job.

I’m beyond tired of holding my tongue, because no one can handle the truth.  The freedom of speech means just that, Freedom to speak what’s on your mind.  If I feel like swearing, I’m going to do it, if I feel like calling someone and idiot or stupid, I’m going to do it.  It’s my life, not yours, I’m not here to please you, I am here to be my own person.  Stop trying to force me to believe what you believe.  I do not care about your religion, that is your choice, keep it to yourself.  Don’t say you will pray for me, keep it to yourself. 

Start standing up for yourself, if something is bothering you, work on fixing it.  If you want something, go after it before it’s to late.  Start being honest with yourself, you are who you are.  You have only yourself to blame if something is wrong in your life. 

From this day forward, go out there, take life by the horns, go after what you want, fix your own problems, worry about your life, and I’ll worry about my life.  It’s time to stop pussy footing around, stand up, speak out, and be heard.  You only have this one life, start living it and stop being afraid. 

Now get out there, and do whatever it is you do, and be the best you can at it!

V2 Electronic Cigarettes

I’ve recently began to give up smoking, I bought an electronic cigarette from V2.  As of this point in time, I am cigarette free, and I only “vape”.  It truly has set me free, and this e-cig has to be the best of the best.  V2 offers many flavors, their cartridges have a great throat hit, and the price is really good.  If you are thinking about quitting, I would definitely give them a try.

Love this song, wanted to share…

Nickelback – Gotta Be Somebody
This time I wonder what it feels like
To find the one in this life
The one we all dream of
But dreams just aren’t enough
So I´ll be waiting for the real thing.
I’ll know it by the feeling.
The moment when we´re meeting
Will play out like a scene straight off the silver screen
So I`ll be holdin’ my breath
Right up to the end
Until that moment when
I find the one that I’ll spend forever with

`Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
‘Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There`s gotta be somebody for me like that.

`Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they´re not alone.
Somebody else that feels the same somewhere.
There`s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Tonight out on the street out in the moonlight
And damn it this feels too right
It´s just like Déjà Vu
Me standin’ here with you
So I´ll be holdin`my breath
Could this be the end?
Is it that moment when
I find the one that I spend forever with?

‘Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
‘Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There´s gotta be somebody for me like that.

`Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they´re not alone.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There`s gotta be somebody for me out there.

You can´t give up!
When you’re Lookin´ for a diamond in the rough
Because you never know when it shows up
Make sure you´re holdin` on
‘Cause it could be the one, the one you´re waiting on

‘Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There has gotta be somebody for me
Ohhhhhh.

Nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they´re not alone.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There `s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Nobody wants to be the last one there
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There has gotta be somebody for me out there.

Myths of bottled water!!!

Top 6 Myths: About Bottled Water

WebMD Feature from “Marie Claire” Magazine

By Anndee Hochman

Bottled water — already a more than $10 billion industry — is the fastest-growing beverage category in the U.S. But is it good for you? Here’s the pure truth.

Myth #1: BOTTLED WATER IS BETTER THAN TAP.

Not necessarily. While labels gush about bottled water that “begins as snowflakes” or flows from “deep inside lush green volcanoes,” between 25 and 40 percent of bottled water comes from a less exotic source: U.S. municipal water supplies. (Bottling companies buy the water and filter it, and some add minerals.) That’s not really a bad thing: The Environmental Protection Agency oversees municipal water quality, while the Food and Drug Administration monitors bottled water; in some cases, EPA codes are more stringent.

Myth #2: PURIFIED WATER TASTES BETTER.

The “purest” water — distilled water with all minerals and salts removed — tastes flat; it’s the sodium, calcium, magnesium, and chlorides that give water its flavor. The “off” taste of tap water is the chlorine; if you refrigerate it in a container with a loose-fitting lid, the chlorine taste will be gone overnight.

Myth #3: BOTTLED WATER WITH VITAMINS, MINERALS, OR PROTEIN IS MORE HEALTHY THAN REGULAR WATER.

“Vitamins, color, herbs, protein, and all the other additions to water — those are a marketing ploy,” says Marion Nestle, Ph.D., professor of nutrition studies at New York University. Plus, the additives are usually a scant serving of the vitamins you really need in a day, adds Amy Subar, Ph.D., a nutritionist with the National Cancer Institute. Enhanced waters usually contain sugars and artificial flavorings to sweeten the deal and can pack more calories than diet soda. When it comes to providing fluoride, tap water usually wins, though that element is increasingly being added to bottled waters.

Myth #4: YOU NEED EIGHT 8-OUNCE GLASSES OF WATER EACH DAY.

The Institute of Medicine recommends about 91 ounces (a little more than 11 8-ounce glasses) of fluid daily for women. But here’s the thing: It expects 80 percent of that to come from water, juice, coffee, tea, or other beverages and the remaining 20 percent from food. That means if you drink a 12-ounce cup of coffee and a 12-ounce can of diet soda, you only need 48 more ounces (three 16-ounce glasses, or four soda cans’ worth) for the day.

Myth #5: AFTER AN INTENSE WORKOUT, BOTTLED WATER IS BEST.

There’s a reason volunteers hand out Gatorade during marathons. If your workout lasts longer than an hour, you need to replace the water and electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, that you’ve lost (that’s what sports drinks generally do). For less intense workouts, regular water is fine.

Myth #6: WATER BOTTLES ARE EASY ON THE ENVIRONMENT BECAUSE THEY CAN BE RECYCLED.

Wouldn’t it be nice? And it’s not just the bottles. Eco-costs include manufacturing, trucking, shelving, and marketing. And meeting the annual U.S. demand for plastic bottles requires enough oil to keep 100,000 cars on the road for a year, says Janet Larsen of the Earth Policy Institute. Sure, the 70 million empty water bottles the U.S. produces per day can be recycled, but the sad truth is, about 86 percent of them end up in the trash. Hardly worth it, for what flows out of the tap and into a reusable glass for free.
