Whatever You Are Searching For, Begin Searching With You

Be here now.

Whatever You Are Searching For, Begin Searching With You
Laura Peck

Where are you?

I mean, not physically, but in a deeper way.

Where are you?

Maybe you're sitting in a morning class, but maybe you're already at lunch.

Maybe you're on your way to work, but maybe you're on your way home.

Maybe you're standing in front of a crowd, but maybe you're already in bed.

What if you were actually at point A? What if you were in class, on your way to work, in front of the crowd.

And then when you're finished, you're at point B. Lunch, your way home, in your bed.

Maybe things would be simpler. Maybe you wouldn't have to power through,

Maybe things could actually give you life.

If you dismiss your activities, the ones you are doing right here and now, then you will never be satisfied. How can we be satisfied with something that is not yet?

If you aren't here now, will you ever be?

So, we slow down.

We breathe in and out,

We remember where we are. We give some, but little attention to how we got there and where we will be next.

And when we are where we are, that's all we have to worry about.

Yes planning, yes memories, but here.

It's not black and white, here or then thing. It's all-encompassing,

Then, but HERE.

You can have the freedom to enjoy your life. It is yours. There is no shame. You are you, and you are here. Sometimes it hurts, but it hurts more if you zone out of it.

Be here. Breathe.

Thanks be to God.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
