Secrets

Secrets and shame are so toxic yet so universal. If there were no secrets, half of the worlds stories would have nothing to tell. We live with our secrets, or try to, but they stay there – nagging – no matter how we try to ignore them.

Dream Job

In my dream job there would be no men sitting around talking about what they did at the strip club during lunch. I could wear comfortable shoes every day. I would make enough to support myself without running out of food and gas money every month. That would be perfect.

Hope

You want to have hope? Stop watching the news. You want to have hope? Talk with real live people, not electronic versions of people. You want to have hope? Go visit some trees – a park, your back yard, the nearest state park. You want to have hope? Use your creativity to write something today.

The Moral of the Story

cornish blue hot chocolate

Well, I’m back. I had the most expensive cup of hot chocolate in the world on my way here. But I have a working computer and a passion to create writing prompts, so it all worked out in the end. The moral of the story is, do not drink near your computer. Do. Not.

Not Likely

Some things are just not likely. Like this: supposed there was a woman of color who directed movies. Not a movie star, but a director. And suppose there was a Barbie doll made in her honor. Then suppose the doll sold out in 17 minutes. The reality is not likely, but it’s awesome.

They Don’t Get It

They don’t get it. And I don’t get how they can’t get it. There is so much evidence that they SHOULD get, but they just don’t seem to even know the evidence exists. It’s like reality or truth or science or, really, anything they don’t agree with, just isn’t there. How can they not see the truth?

Mental Health

What do you do to protect your mental health? My main habit to protect my mental health is not to watch TV news. I find out everything important anyway, even though I haven’t watched the news in decades. I know people who watch the news channels all day long. Those people are upset and angry all day long. The news is aimed at the reptilian brain, not at higher levels of reasoning.

Best Friend

What do you need in a best friend? The biggest thing is that they don’t judge. They accept you for whatever you are. If you’re fun that day, they love you. If you’re cranky that day, they love you. A best friend is willing to do things you want to do – even if they aren’t their favorite thing. A best friend listens when you need listening, plays when you need playing, and cries when you need crying.

I’d Love That

What are the things you’d love? Something simple – a pain free day, perhaps. Something complicated – an end to fighting? Something inspiring – an education for all girls. How about a nice Thanksgiving with friends and family? I’d love that.

Peaceful Place

Imagine your peaceful place. It’s most likely a natural area: green, trees, water, blue sky, beautiful things like mountains or oceans around you. We need those things to feel calm and happy. Yet we build cities that lack the very things that might calm our minds and bring peace to our hearts. We’re doing it wrong.
