Positive Body Questions

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2014 by Mrsbeard

It’s been a really long time since I have posted. Probably over a year.
It is pleasant and surprising to see that people still visit my blog regularly. In fact, in the last year, there has only been a couple of days where I have had no visits.
So if you have come onto The Hanging Sun in the last year, thank you so much 🙂

I’ve been quite unwell today which means that I’ve been stuck doing sweet eff ay.

I started to think about body image and the way females view themselves. Earlier today I saw photos of a woman who posted some revealing photos of herself on Instagram. Usually this annoys me but her photos were so beautiful and not the least bit sleazy or attention seeking.

It made me think, this woman baring her breasts shows no shame and seems happy with her cup size. Though she is probably statistically an average size cup, most people would suggest she is “small breasted”. And I admire her and other women with “smaller” chests.

If I admire other women for this, why can’t I admire myself for this same quality? Why is it that I look at other women who don’t have their boobs under their chins and think negatively like I think about my breasts and breast size? While I am statistically an average size C-D why is it that I still feel so shitty about them?

I was watching a show this afternoon with did a survey of women in the streets of Australia. Most women interviewed couldn’t think of a positive quality of themselves.

So I decided to ask Facebook and Instagram. If you are a female, what do you like about your body or what part of your body do you see in a positive light?

So far I’ve had some interesting answers, mostly feet and curves related, and breasts. I will try post the rest of the lil survey later in the week.


Death Wears Life’s Jewels

Don’t be afraid of death;
Be afraid of an un-lived life.
You don’t have to live forever,
You just have to live.
Will you live your life spending?
Or will you spend your life living?

This Is The Time Between Birth And Death

Megan said I need to blog more.
In many ways I feel like I don’t need to cause I’m still getting blog views everyday.
The last time I had a day without any views was on the… it won’t let me check it… Oh well, it’s been a while anyway.

I’ve recently become aware that everyone I’m surrounded by is lost. I included.
We have no strive, no goals (even the ones that do still seem lost), nothing burning inside us.
We might work, have our independence, be in love, be traveled or studying but there is something integral missing from all of our souls.
It makes me sad to think about it and thinking about it makes me feel even worse.

Why are we all like this?
Why are we all lost and stuck as if we are just roaming around blinded or drugged in a never-ending field?
We get angry, we get sad.
We feel something when we are drunk, having sex, smoking or drug taking and that’s it*.
When we are thrust back into reality the next morning, when the next hangover sets in, after that cigarette, after that orgasm, we know that we need to change and yet we still don’t know how to.
And some just accept that they’re lost even though they find so much discomfort in their current being.

It’s a scary feeling; like time isn’t on our side, that time is running out and fast.
There is so much pressure, but it doesn’t help to ignore it, but we don’t know how to face it either.
So, instead, we just carry on, stumbling around in the dark.

What do we want to be remembered for?
At the end of the day what do we want to have to show for ourselves?

Whatever it is, I hope that we all find our way, it would be a shame for us not to.

*I exclude myself from this statement as I rarely ever drink or get drunk.

Sleeping Awake

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 3, 2011 by Mrsbeard

My life is sort of like the Matrix.
You can take the blue pill and be led like a douche by religion all of your life.
Or you can take the red pill and know the truth.

I’d rather take the Red Pill, escape the Matrix and know how deep the rabbit hole really goes.

I’d rather know the truth and live a life of possible misery than live a life of the blind.

It may sound harsh but this is my blog and this is how I choose to live my truthful life.

We Lose Our Footing But Still Try To Stand

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on October 13, 2010 by Mrsbeard

Ok, so yesturday I was diagnosed with a possibly life-changing situation.
I’m shocked, surprised and pretty stunned.
I’m still devastated, I feel like I have lost a part of myself.
But tomorrow is a new day and as much as I hate the truth in this instance I have to try come to terms with new things.

I’m glad I have my parents and James to care and love me and be with me every step.
I don’t want to discuss it with many people, it’s private but I’m just reiterating the importance of being positive.
Negative Nancy isn’t my thing.
