Why you should never tell your kids to finish what's on their plate





Τhere is no way to beat about the bush around this one.

Dont force your kids to eat what they dont like, good people.\

Food is ,apart from necessary to sustain life, closely related to pleasure and love.

Can you think of anything else that is closely related to pleasure and love?

Right. Sex.

Teaching your kids to disregard their natural aversion to certain foods and forcing it down their stomach?
Same as teaching them that disregarding their natural instincts is ok if someone in authority tells them so. Also, that pleasure has nothing to do with food, but you have to gulp it down , no matter how disgusting it is.

Please, dont do that.

I am not judging anyone's parenting style here. Really , I am not. Strict or relaxed, that's another story.

But food, it's too important to teach discipline with. Let boundaries learning be done in other ways, there are countless of them.

Dont lay the foundations for a distorted, sick relationship with pleasure by forcing food down a very unwilling little stomack.

No, your kid is not doing it to spite you.
Have you ever tried swallowing something that doesnt agree with you?

Torture, right?
What makes you think then it is right to impose this on your child, out of a sense of 'respect for rules and how hard I've worked to prepare this'?

Nature gave us the perfect example of what our relationship with food should be like:

"Breastfeeding is an unsentimental metaphor for how love works, in a way. You don't decide how much to love — you respond to the beloved, and give with joy exactly as much as they want." ~Marni Jackson

Try making a baby suckle when they are full and not hungry..impossible. That's how love should work, never imposed, given freely and the beloved decides when, how and how much. The most pure and perfect model for love, given to us by God as a compass for later in life

Men, especially, who have breastfed to their heart's content, NEVER become rapists...because they model their sexual behavior after the fashion of how the first woman in their life gave them love: freely and as much and when they needed it.

Food = Pleasure+ Love

Let your kids decide how much and of what kind pleasure and love they need.

Their needs as individual as their fingerprint.

Don't spoil it for them

Pleas, dont

Because no big harm will come out of their not eating their greens.

But love and pleasure?

You bet they'll be needing to be able to enjoy that....

How to Steal Like a Real Artist




The idea, of course, along with most of quote pictures here, comes from Austin Leon's popular book,



 Every artist is influenced by what has been done before their time. If not by direct exposure, the information the artist is exposed to through other people, media, etc. influences them. We are all a product of our times and have the benefit of those who have walked similar paths we are now on. 

 

Here are some photo interpretation of mine inspired by popular photos online:
(mine is on the left)













We all borrow because it has all been done before and we are not the originators. To merely copy is to take an existing interpretation and not run away with it. To steal an idea is to take something of value and make it yours. To make an artistic element yours you have to interpret it your way with your own approach.












This cannot be done when you are merely copying the idea. When copying the idea you are just doing everything exactly like it was previously done. When you have done it your way you have used the element and not simply duplicated it. 









It is not required that you advance the element. You can go sideways and even backwards with the idea and you can be stealing the element and not copying it. On the contrary, when merely copying the element you have failed if you do not match the original.







Here are the rules of the game:

My recipe for staying and feeling hot and sexy






To me feeling sexy is the prerequisite for staying alive, passionate, juicy, happy

-So I like watching my figure and exercising
(or at least trying!  On a daily basis, I eat whatever I want, drink what i want,  but all with a degree of moderation)

-refuse to spend  time with people who complain about how old they feel, because they just pull me right down with them and make me feel old too

- take the time to plan wonderful things for the future instead of dwelling on what's missing from my life right now

-flirt with life- and men-,with all of what life has to offer. This makes me feel young, hopeful and desired and it shows in my face as well. 

- surround myself with lively, smart, fun and interesting people who adore being around me, and if they arent around offline, welcome them online
(that's you, guys! ;) )

- dress the way I feel MY real age to be, not what others tell   me about my 'age group'. If I feel 19, - and I regularly do, mind you- I keep that energy up and I feel like a teenager for as long as I feel like it.

- pay particular attention to teenagers, because their carefree energy of talking, moving and relating to life is exactly what I'm after on an energetic level. Whenever I'm around them, I soak in their energy and send them loving energy in exchange for it. Believe me, it works

-keep telling myself that I'm getting prettier and prettier
( even if I am not, it still makes me feel great about myself!) 

- treat myself regularly to wonderful little things, especially if they seem unnecessary and frivolous. This are my grounding and my stay young for eversecret, reall

-take time to make myself beautiful daily. I  can’t feel both haggard and worn down and fabulous at the same time. So I pose for selfies, because this makes me put in the extra effort. Guess what, it makes my day too

-Love. Lots and lots and lots.
Passionately, irrationaly and deliberately.
That's the greatest secret of them all

May you always feel the hottest commodity around!
