#TheTriggering : Finding the Truth(Poem + ANNOUNCEMENT!)

#TheTriggering

Today, I’m writing a very special poem, for a very special group of snowflakes known as Social Justice Warriors, who, if you have come across them online (and are of a rational mind), are some of the most bigoted people across social-media.

Wood

That’s what makes up the fibers of the desk at which I sit. My thoughts rampant, as I’m left staring at the light brown textures; forever lost within their sporadic rings. Trapped.

The outside world is fading from my mind, as events and tribulations overwhelm my being. Question, fired by the fuel of doubt, is embedded in the forefront of these conceptual images.

Is it fixable? Is any of it within the realm of repair? Continue reading

Friday The 13th and Islamophobia

Friday The 13th and Islamophobia

I’ll be honest, I’m not even sure how to start this article…and I guess that’s about as good a way to begin as any.

The attacks on the people of Paris were a horrific act that left over 140 people dead, and many more injured. It was only one of the many terrible things that happened on November 13, 2015.

To highlight them all, so we can pay them all proper condolence, here they are:

Combating Ignorance : Anita Sarkeesian, ISIS, and Muslims.

Combating Ignorance : Anita Sarkeesian, ISIS, and Muslims.

Heads up people, as this blog post is going to seem pretentious to some of you. As a disclaimer, I will say up front that I am no better, or no worse than anyone else, in the sense of being partially to blame for some of the ignorant behavior I’m going to be talking about, and refuting. I also want to say that though I may have participated in some of this at one point or another, I’ve grown past it and have learned what kind of indirect damage some of these things can cause, and the truth behind them. Due to the length of this article, I won’t be able to use too many examples, but enough for you to get the picture.

Listen America, About Your Guns…

Canada already has decent gun regulation. Our background checks are far more thorough, we have psychological and safety testing for our long-guns, and further testing and permits for our hand-guns and more lethal firearms. Canada, is doing OK for gun control.

Toxic Relationships

Toxic Relationships

toxic

Ok, here we go…I’m going to open up a little bit about relationships. Mainly because I need to get some crap off my chest, but also to help anyone else dealing with a similar situation, because, let’s face it, other people’s experiences or thoughts can help us gain perception on our own.

During the past couple of weeks I found this to be quite true, as I looked to forums and other public sources for a type of reinforcement behind the decision I made…Even when I knew that I made the right choice for the good of my health. It’s funny (in a terrible sort of way) how our emotions tend to push against what’s really best for us.

#UnpopularOpinionNight … Some Unpopular Opinions of My Own

Unpopular Opinion Night….Wow.

What a Hashtag. And though it is a bit of an earful, mouthful, eyeful – whatever the Hell you want to call it – I kind of like the idea. There are a lot of unpopular opinions out there, and though some opinions are becoming less taboo than they used to be, there are still a lot of issues we have in this world that need be addressed. Some of the opinions are unpopular, and some of them can be agreed on by anybody who can look passed their own pride and inner circle to see two plus two equals four.

Random Thought Of The Day: Passion

Passion.

This is a word that is tossed around quite a bit. Everyone wants to have a passion. Everyone wants to have something they’re talented at, fascinated with; fulfilled by. Passion is a beautiful thing. It can get you out of bed on a cold day, and it can push you to move forward, even when it seems like everything in the world is trying to block your path.

Random Rant: The “I’d love to share your book…” scam.

Annoying Messages Indie Authors Receive:

“I would LOVE to share your book with my one million followers! Message me back to find out more!”

Ok…So what’s stopping you? Don’t know where the share button is?

Most Indie authors know, that if you share something, the ones who matter, will share back. If not, then don’t share for them. It’s one of the biggest ways we all network and market books. It’s how most of us meet, and it’s how most of us end up supporting each other.

Fear

Fear

It fades in again, that creeping feeling that moves me forward towards my desires. I cannot allow myself to fall by the wayside, for there I surely won’t survive.

In life we cross boundaries small and large, that must be overcome, otherwise we end up camping out at the very wall we did not dare to climb. Broken pieces of a lost dream, blown around by the winds of life wherever it may take them. A constant cycle, of settling for what you have, instead of pursuing the goals you truly deserve. We make our own rewards, so what’s holding us all back?
