Pearls Before Swine!
Welcome to Day One of No Whining Wednesdays! A new segment of The PBS Blog.
The No Whining Wednesday Badge
What is NWW?
No Whining Wednesdays is something coined by Iyanla Vanzant that I decided to adopt into this blog. It means that for the entire day today you CANNOT do the following:

This weeks Word Press Photo Challenge is the word “Security”. How does that relate to riding a horse? How “secure” do you feel on a horse? Can you be secure if you do not trust the horse? Let’s face it, riding horses is dangerous. People can die riding a horse. Well,to be precise they usually die or are injured when they come off the horse. It can happen even to the best of riders.
Horses are prey animals. They have survived the millennia by being aware of potential dangers and being ready to flee in a heartbeat. In my experience there are two types of horses. There are horses that perceive a danger and decide they must flee, immediately, and they must get rid of that person on top of them to do so. The rider is seen as an added danger.
The other type of horse is the one…

My Loud Bipolar Whispers.
What is later?
Later is not right now.
Later is the future.
Later is a dream,
a dream of hope,
a hope that I will wake up in the morning
a hope I will be healthy and happy,
a hope that I will have a good life,
a hope that my children will be safe, healthy and happy,
a hope I will make a difference in people’s lives,
a hope that I have a purpose,
a hope that I matter,
a hope that someone loves me,
a hope that I will always be a good person,
a hope that I will have a later
a hope that I will be here tomorrow.
I hope for a
Do not be a
Later is a dream,
a dream of hope
for a better now.
We do not know if we have a later
so we need to enjoy now.

In the Arena!
Have you ever wondered if those who post quotes on their social media sites actually read and truly live and believe in these quotes?
Are we posting them to inspire others or ourselves? Are they lashing out in anger, denial, crying out for help, griefing the death of a loved one or their favorite basketball team that didn’t make it into the final four of March Madness(no worries- mine is still in there- GO UNC!),- or deflecting upon others what we need to see or change within ourselves? Maybe our intentions are to bring about positive change in this world or open one another hearts and minds to a new perspective.
