Kindness, Condemnation, Judgment, and Suffering

Lately while perusing social media pretty extensively, I've noticed an extreme lack of understanding and more than enough condemnation and judgment. It's rather unfortunate, and shows a lack of care for our fellow humans and is something I believe needs to be changed. How to change it? Choose to always be considerate of others... Be there for the friend who calls and says she's lonely...check up on your friends you KNOW are depressed and make sure they've taken care of themselves lately. DO NOT write incendiary condemning posts about people you consider "different". Who knows what they've gone through and why they react the way they are. Be KIND. I wrote a little something here that expands a little on what I'm saying.

This is my pledge for this year...one of those "New Years Resolutions" if you want to call it that. I choose to every day make it a point to be kind to those who according to the world "don't deserve it". The outcasts...the socially unaccepted...the bullied...the "different." and the ones who desperately are crying out to be noticed or accepted. I will focus on retweeting kindness and compassion on my Twitter and also insist on treating those I come in contact with in the kindest way possible.

I know this is a short post, but I believe it is worth talking about. Part of being a successful mommy and person is learning how to be a good influence in the world...Teaching your children to be kind is crucial to their development, as they will take over the world once we are gone. Don't you want your children to be positive contributors to the world? To be the ones who say, you belong and I don't care if you're different, you're important and your voice matters. I believe this is one of our most important duties as parents of children...We are teaching them how to live in this hideous messed up world and how to help change it.

Stay tuned for a new post sometime this weekend

It has been way too long since I've shared anything, so I will be working on something this weekend in between watching the Olympics. This is a favorite of mine, but ya'll are important too, so I'll be working my hardest on something that is useful and helpful. I hope everything is going well for all my readers!
Necessity dictates that I be short and sweet at the moment! More to come this weekend!

One Pot Chicken Dumplings Soup

Have you ever looked at your pantry and couldn't figure out what to make? I did that today, and I found a few things and made something pretty delicious! Here's what I had and here's what I used.

One Pot Chicken and Dumplings




Ingredients:

  1. 1 Can of Chicken and dumplings (I used Sweet Sue's)
  2. 1 Can Mixed vegetables (I used Great Value's Mixed Vegetables, but you can use any brand you want or that you have in your pantry)
  3. 1/2 a bag of frozen broccoli (I used the rest of a bag of Great Value Frozen broccoli I'd used earlier in the week)
  4. Salt and pepper (I used Himalayan Pink salt and fresh ground pepper in a grinder)




Directions:

  1. Heat up a skillet or saucepan and add all ingredients. 
  2. Cook for about ten minutes or til hot and ingredients are cooked through.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and any other seasonings you wish.
  4. Serve hot.
Makes about two and a half servings. My kids ate the entire pot in one meal. To stretch it out a little more, you can add more cans of whatever vegetables you'd like or another bag or two of frozen vegetable. The joy about this recipe is you can add whatever vegetables you want and enjoy a variety of different flavor combinations.

Writer's Corner Entry #1

Welcome to the Writer's Corner!
Today I want to remind you that when you're writing a blog post or pretty much anything, one thing you need to remember is that when you are speaking in "present tense" (meaning happening right now), you need to make sure that it stays the same through the entire paper or post. This makes your writing so much better and allows you to look and sound more credible. If you have noticed that this post is written in present tense, then good for you!
So, if you are talking about something that happened in the past, try to use that form.
What's the difference between to and too? Here's a sentence that may help you..."I went TO the shop TO get food TOO. Too means also...so if you have also done something, you've done it too. Yes I am sorry it is confusing!
What are problems you have had when trying to translate what you are saying into English?

So, as a side business, idea, however you wanna call it, I got involved in trading within the cryptocurrency market. This isn't necessarily a cryptocurrency platform and it's not my goal to switch completely to trading information here, so I wrote an entry on my other blog. You can find it here. I will be writing and posting more on there once I get my information in an organized form and I'm not thinking all over the place, which I struggle with. I will let you know when a new post is available so you can check it out for yourself!
