Being proactive though, is a lot safer and gives you the power. People can insult you, but you get to decide if you are going to be affected by it or not.
Being proactive is harder at first. What something bad happens, it’s so easy to retort, fight back, explode, give the finger or insult them. What I do, is take a deep breath, and ask myself "Do I want to let this affect me? Am I going to let this wreck my day?" Then I respond diplomatically and let the issue float on by. It’s not a weak thing to do, it’s the opposite. You’re choosing to be in control of your emotions. And it shows strength, big time.
I'm not sure whether that post made sense or not, so comment if it was unclear and I'd be happy to clear anything up!
No, wait, comment whether it made sense or not!

What does it mean to be an artist? This is something that I’ve been thinking about for quite a long time. It's important to me because I've always been attracted to the arts and I'm not sure why. Is it actually important to have artists in society? If so. what is their purpose? And by the "artist", I mean the very broad term describing actors, painters, dancers, writers, musicians, sculptors, directors, composers, etc.
I think that an artist is anyone who creates. In my opinion, artists should constantly be challenging our perceptions and ways of seeing things. If we aren't constantly challenged, we'll fall into one way of thinking, but forget why we actually think that. I think it's good to be offended every now and then. If we aren't offended every now and then, how will we know what we like of not? I think that artists are so important to society. Wars destruct, artists create. As long as there is war and people destroying ideas, we need artists to recreate. I think that art is a way of expressing ideas and challenging perceptions.
What do you think? Do you think society needs artists? Why? Comment!

I have decided that I am going to continue blogging every day. It's tough, but worth it for many reasons. Firstly, it gets me writing regularly, which is a good thing. Secondly, and more importantly, it gets me writing my thoughts in a legible fashion and posting what actually could be of some use to somebody else. It can be tough to think stuff up everyday, but it's important. Ideas don't just come to you. You have to actively seek them out. There are so many wonderful, interesting things around me and so many strange, exciting, cool and bizarre things floating around my head, that it helps me to pinpoint them and express them. And the more ideas you express, the more will come to you. Blogging everyday will push me to find at least one noteworthy thing in my day!
I also want to increase the quality, raise the bar and raise my standards of this blog. Not that there is anything wrong with with sites that are about "ZOMG MY DOG POOPED!1!!11", but this isn't one of them.

About 1 heaping generous teaspoon chopped ginger
1 teaspoon lemon juice (or to taste)
1 teaspoon honey (or to taste)
1 cup boiling water
Makes one cup of tea.
Put the chopped ginger in your mug, and add the water. Stir in the lemon juice and honey. Thats all there is to it.
It's the best. It's great for sore throats and everything else.
I'm posting this now because I have a cold and have been drinking massive amounts of this lately.
