5 Finger Personalities

    Here are the personalities for each of the fingers you use in your daily life! Your thumb is the one we use for everything, especially eating. Your index finger is the poindexter, it’s also the pointer. The middle finger is the thug, always bullying and being mean to others. Your ring finger is…confused. And your Pinky finger is the innocent and shy one.

      Everybody wanted to go to the moon when they were younger. Imagine if everyone got the opportunity to go to the moon, we’d all be living on the moon doing nothing. The moon would be filled with unemployed dreamers.

      Freedom Of Speech Tweet

      powerful images

        Because of twitter, our freedom of speech right is used to its fullest extent. As we go to different parts of the world, we see the twitter bird starts dying off as not everybody has that right.

        America’s tweety bird is alive and singing as we have our freedom of speech right. In other countries the bird is aware of what it says because its speech is watched. The bird starts flying away when in countries with temporary freedom of speech because it wants to avoid trouble. Then the bird turns into a robot in countries with manipulated freedom of speech. Now the robot bird is caged in when in countries with repressed speech. And finally, the bird is cooked having its freedom killed when in countries with no freedom of speech.

        “What Did I Miss?”

        powerful images

          Because of smartphones, this generation isn’t fully aware of life around them. We’ll roam the streets with our heads down looking at our phones and end up missing the opportunity of a lifetime because of it. We don’t live life day by day anymore because technology is taking up most of our time. We miss out on the real life as we enjoy simulations of life through electronics. Our phones have become the real life to us.

            Society Today

            powerful images

              Before, in the 20th century, people wanted to go outside and have fun but were tied down to their work and jobs. Their inner child would want to go out and experience life. Now in the 21st century we go outside as characters on games and have all of our fun inside with technology! Our inner child is doing the same thing we do in real life and doesn’t want to explore because as we grew up technology was always there!

                Life’s Biggest Disappointments

                powerful pictures

                  Remember when you found out that Santa Claus wasn’t real? How did that make you feel? If you were like most kids, you were probably disappointed.

                  What about your first heartbreak? This made you realize that love doesn’t last forever. As you grew up, finished college and got your degree, you realized that having this piece of paper doesn’t really guarantee you a job in that profession.

                  Now as an adult you see that the ideals you had as you grew up were most likely false and you have the pay the price for believing in them. And what is that price? Your time. Now as an older person you saw how much time you’ve wasted and now your life is withering away!

                  30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

                  30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

                  In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

                  1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

                  Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

                  2. Focus on your breath

                  Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

                  3. Get organized and purge old items

                  A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

                  4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

                  Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

                  5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

                  Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

                  6. Smile more

                  Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

                  7. Don’t worry about the future

                  As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

                  8. Eat real food

                  The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

                  9. Choose being happy over being right

                  Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

                  10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

                  Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

                  11. Make use of filtering features on social media

                  You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

                  12. Get comfortable with silence

                  When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

                  13. Listen to understand, not to respond

                  So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

                  14. Put your troubles in a bubble

                  Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

                  15. Speak more slowly

                  Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

                  16. Don’t procrastinate

                  Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

                  17. Buy a coloring book

                  Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

                  18. Prioritize yourself

                  You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

                  19. Forgive others

                  Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

                  20. Check your expectations

                  Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

                  21. Engage in active play

                  Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

                  22. Stop criticizing yourself

                  The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

                  23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

                  Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

                  Advertising

                  24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

                  Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

                  25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

                  Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

                  26. Manage your money

                  Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

                  27. Stop trying to control everything

                  Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

                  28. Practice affirmations

                  Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

                  29. Get up before sunrise

                  Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

                  30. Be yourself

                  Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
