WHO IS YOUR HERO? A WICKEDLY WISE TWEET CARD

WHO IS YOUR HERO? - A WICKEDLY WISE TWEET CARD --- By Kate Woods
WHO IS YOUR HERO? – A WICKEDLY WISE TWEET CARD — By Kate Woods

I’m writing this Memorial Day post to honor all the true life heroes that serve in the military to protect all Americans everyday,  as well as my personal heroes. I’m happy to say that I’ve never been disappointed by the heroes in my life.   On this day and everyday I’d like to thank all of you!  We must all make sure that we make our heroes aware how much we appreciate them. To all our heroes everywhere – Shine On!

According to  Dictionary.com a Hero is a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal.  Who is your hero?  There are so many real heroes in the world and in the lives of so many of us.

Unfortunately,  there are also many people who pose as heroes. In the span of your lifetime you may encounter someone who you view as your hero. It may be a parent or a sibling, or your child, or other relative, or a friend. It could be a stranger, a celebrity, a political personality, a member of the military or the police force, or a religious leader, or perhaps your next door neighbor, etc., etc.  On any given day you can view someone as your hero, on any given day you can also have many people in your life that you view as heroes.  That’s a wonderful scenario, but who IS your hero?  Is it someone who is really a hero or is it a bully in disguise who portrays them self as a heroic figure but who knocks others down to make them self look larger than life.  A hero reaches down with their  outstretched hands to help someone that’s down to get up.

Sometimes people just pretend to be heroes and then sadly they show their true colors, and you find out what they promised you or offered you is  just as elusive as an elusive butterfly!  So, try to be sure when you choose a hero that they are a person who is worthy of your loyalty! And also always try to behave in a manner that you may be viewed by someone else as their hero!

Until next time, have a warm heart but be COOL! Be happy, be well, and be the best you that you can be!

All About Hearts – A Wickedly Wise Valentine

All About Hearts - A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Valentine Card from my heart to your heart. -Kate Woods
All About Hearts – A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Valentine Card from my heart to your heart.      -Kate Woods


Valentine’s Day is of course all about Hearts so let’s talk about hearts. The Heart is probably the most talked about and focused on part of the human body. Its been widely portrayed as a Broken Heart, a Happy Heart, a Foolish Heart, a Cheating Heart, a Beating Heart, a Shattered Heart, a Bleeding Heart and a Still Heart. For now let’s allow it to be a Light-Hearted Heart. Even though this is already a long list, I’m sure I’ve missed many others. I won’t be disheartened by that fact though because I have a Strong Heart and since I know you all have Open Hearts that are Forgiving Hearts I know you won’t be bothered by that fact. What kind of Heart do you have? Let’s have a Heart to Heart talk about it!

I’m sure that most of us would prefer to have a Happy Heart rather than a Broken Heart, but unfortunately that isn’t always possible. There are many people out there who have Restless Hearts that turn into Cheating Hearts and they have little or no concern about leaving a string of Broken Hearts behind them. It’s difficult for them to understand that a person with a Shattered Heart may have a Change of Heart about the person who shattered their Heart of Glass.

But cheer up, someone may come along with a Giving Heart who will offer uplifting words of wisdom and turn your Bleeding Heart into a rhythmic Beating Heart and your Impulsive Heart may not be able to keep from shouting out, “be still my Foolish Heart”.

So even if you think you have a Sappy Heart, it could in fact be a Happy Heart and there’s always hope that a Blue Heart will meet a True Heart and that someone who has a Touching Heart will touch your Loving Heart and the two of you will be off to a great start of creating a happy relationship that’s a work of art!

And while we’re on the subject of Matters of the Heart be sure to take good care of your heart with healthy habits for the mind and the body that houses the heart. To have a Healthy Heart you have to do your part!

So, I hope you’ve enjoyed the sentiments in this Wickedly Wise Valentine and that you heart is doing just fine!

Until next time, have a warm heart but be COOL! Be happy, be well, and be the best you that you can be!

Best Regards,

Kate Woods

Humanity – A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Card

Humanity - A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Card - Kate Woods, Author
Humanity – A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Card – Kate Woods, Author

 

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF HUMANITY?  How does the lack of it effect impressionable children?  Take a moment to read a short memoir below –  THE TROPHY ROOM – to hear how antlers on a wall and other hunting trophies on display were viewed by one small child I knew very well.

According to Dictionary.com the definition of Humanity is the quality of being humane; kindness; benevolence. For a society to be peaceful at all levels humane treatment must be extended to all those who live and breathe in your circle of existence. All that surround you should be safe from harm unless you are acting in self-defense defending your own health, safety and life or you are defending the lives of your family or others lives. I realize that in today’s world the old tried and true Golden Rule might seem trivial, trite and insignificant, but it really does speak volumes in very few words – Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto To You… I believe with all my heart that should extend to the animals of the world too. What we do as adults and parents dramatically teaches our children by example, and what we teach them is our legacy to the world. Be Humane! The future of society and its behavior may truly depend on it!

THE TROPHY ROOM

When I was a child my family would visit friends of the family with a scary room in their house.  This room was a trophy room for a member of the family that held hunting trophies that had been handed down from an older family member. It had real bearskin rugs in front of the fireplace and deer antlers on the wall and it had chairs that had backs made from the horns of some unfortunate animals from a big game hunt in a foreign land.  As children, we were sent into that room to play, and to this day if I close my eyes I can still see that terrifying room, and I can still feel the absolute repulsiveness of what it signified.  I didn’t know exactly what that was back then, but I knew I didn’t like it. I do know what it signifies now. It speaks very loudly that some people do not think that slaughtering animals as sport for their trophy rooms is an insult to humanity.

Along this same line, deer culling for the sake of saving shrubs and plants equally lacks reason and humanity. You can plant more bushes and shrubs but you cannot change the horrible thoughts that are set in stone in a child’s mind when they are told they can’t go outside at night because they could be mistaken for a deer and shot with a arrow in their own back yard.  Who would ever think that this is a reasonable position to take other than someone whose values lack humanity and who values shrubs over living breathing creatures?

Make no mistake when I say that this is very different than when people hunt for food. This is slaughter for sport. This is beneath the dignified behavior that should be expected of all human beings by virtue of the fact that they have the ability to discern the difference between what is right and what is wrong, and to choose to take the civilized path.

The very description of humanity means that you should act as a human which gives you a responsibility to protect not massacre the animals who share the earth with us.

In our world in these times we daily hear and read about sociopathic and psychopathic behavior, and how it is undermining the expectations of mutual respect for the other people who share the earth with us.

I simply can’t help but wonder – are we as thinking, walking human beings De-Evolving?  It’s a scary thought; but perhaps the Sci-Fi Zombie  Apocalypse  portrayed in movies is really a warning  of what happens when humans stop acting like humans who think and feel and coexist on this earth, to protect our humanity for now and for the future.

Until next time, have a warm heart but be COOL! Be happy, be well, and be the best you that you can be!

INTUITION – A WICKEDLY WISE INSPIRATION CARD

What is that feeling? Intuition Or Are You Just Batshit Crazy? A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Card
What is that feeling? Intuition Or Are You Just Batshit Crazy? A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Card

 

What’s that feeling? Is it INTUITION or are you just Batshit Crazy? Did you ever have that feeling? You know that feeling that you know something is going to happen, or that something is not going to happen, or that you’ve just met Mr. or Ms. Right or Mr. or Ms. Wrong? I’ll just bet that you have experienced that feeling and thought to yourself, what is this feeling? Then you think why do I feel this way? Maybe it’s Intuition, or maybe I’m just Batshit Crazy!

Well, if the truth be told it probably could be either, but when I get those feelings I like to think they are Intuition and that for some reason the universe, or some angelic ethereal being, or a magical force from within is giving me a special momentary peak into the future.  In other words, I’m probably “Just Batshit Crazy”?

How’s your Intuition?  According to Dictionary.com Intuition is direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process.

You should try to tune into it when you get that feeling. Sometimes it does help you uncover your inner most thoughts  about all sorts of things that maybe you’re hiding from yourself!

Until next time, have a warm heart but be COOL! Be happy, be well, and be the best you that you can be!
