Are people really this dumb?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 5, 2018:
Sadly, people see what they want to see. None are so blind as those who will not see.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 4, 2018:
The old saying is that not forgiving is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Your bad feelings don't harm them at all. You forgive them for you, to take that load off your heart and mind. Finding forgiveness is hard, and sometimes it takes work, but it is necessary for mental health and inner peace.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 4, 2018:
I'm turning 60 this weekend, and I've been divorced for about 9 years. I thought I met my soul mate once, but it didn't work out. I've dated off and on, nothing has been serious. And I live in a conservative state, and I'm anything but conservative. The odds are that I will never find a mate. After being unhappily married for too many years I realized I'm better off single then I was when I was married. I don't have to put up with anyone's BS. If I need help I can call my kids, but frankly it pleases me inordinately to do things myself. After years of subtly being told I wasn't capable or smart enough, I am capable and I'm definitely smart enough. I'm being very selective about who I spend time with cuz frankly I don't have time to waste. My advice to you is to become who you were meant to be. Do what you love, invest your time in you. Be happy with you, and if you find someone that is good, and if you don't you're your own best companion.

We are products of our environment, but we can change. However those early impressions are very lasting, good or bad. Being a victim of circumstances may or may not be true.

I always wonder about that being “in a better place”— how is being dead a better place?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 4, 2018:
As opposed to suffering, yeah dead is better. A fascinating book about death, medicine, and what really matters is "Being Mortal" By Atul Gawande. How we are so afraid of death and the steps we take to avoid it. My opinion is death is part of life, we haven't figured out how to live forever. We need to live and die with dignity. I've told my kids I don't ever want chemo, I don't want machines breathing for me, I don't want pain. I want to go quickly and with dignity. When I can't do what I wanna do when I wanna do it, let me go.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 4, 2018:
I'm interested in dating, but I want local men, and the reality is I live in a conservative state, the local dating pool is about the size of the intellect of the current US president. So if I can't find the right person at least I can enjoy some scintillating conversations.
Who?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 4, 2018:
I try to be practical. The odds of me finding "the one" are not very good, however if I don't look it is also not likely that I will find someone.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 4, 2018:
My current book is progress is https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/19/books/review/reza-aslans-god-a-human-history.html Fascinating! How people have created god or gods since the beginning of time. He looks at how all gods have evolved though history and how those gods have interacted with other gods/other peoples. It is way better than I expected it to be, I was expecting to slog through, but it's well written, very engaging, and I'm learning and enjoying it.

So, I got scolded by some “Free the Nipple” advocates (who I fully support) because they promote...
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 2, 2018:
My grandfather told me that men liked boobs because they never got over the urge to suckle. But its a really tough call. Nipple stimulation causes the uterus to contract which helps the uterus to shrink down after giving birth. However, it also is pleasurable. So, what about the men who like women's tushes? I think it comes down to that we are all sexual beings who are wired differently, we need to respect each other's space and rights, and for Zeus' sake let the moms feed their babies when and where it is needed without getting your shorts in a wad. We're grown ups, we should act like it.

10 New Year's Resolutions You Can Steal from Philosophers
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 2, 2018:
First of all, it has been below zero most of the year, but I supposed I could go to the mall, however the temptation there.... Hmmmm. I am however good at examining my life, it keeps me awake far too many nights. I do read a new book each month, at least one. One of my favorite says is "You're never to old to become who you were meant to be." I'm not fond of change although yes it can be good. And I do own my life, all of it. That is a good article, thanks for sharing.
When should anatomy/health/sex education be introduced into a child’s life?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 2, 2018:
I was always honest and direct with my girls, we called things by their rightful names. I have some amazing adult children now. You start from birth, it is normal and natural, our bodies are in no way shameful, they are beautiful in all shapes and sizes. Keep age appropriate and honest.
Cemeteries, creepy, or peaceful?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 2, 2018:
Cemeteries are OK, more peaceful than creepy except at night. I had a friend who grew up in a house on the cemetery property, her dad was the caretaker. They used to go out after dark to spy on "courting" couples, and scare the beejeesus out of them if they could. Cemeteries are historical, but they are also a terrific waste of space. In Germany you get buried for X years and then your spot is reused for the next occupant.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 1, 2018:
I don't know that I was ever in the angry non-believer stage, though others may disagree. I've been mildly annoyed that I put up with that crap for so long, but I am also grateful because now I have the knowledge and ammunition to shoot that stuff down when it flies by.
What makes you break out your soapbox?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 1, 2018:
To begin with: Women's rights, especially to ownership of her body. That black lives do matter. That the police force needs to be demilitarized. That guns should be as regulated as cars. Single payer health care needs to come to the US, and Der Donald is a pile of horse doodoo.

What is your New Years Day meal this year?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 1, 2018:
I went out for breakfast this morning which put me in a carb coma but helped me to get a nap. I have been in a severe sleep deficit so the nap was the plan. And this evening I baked some brie bites in a crust that must have come from Trader Joe's. They were taking up space in the freezer. It was that or a peanut butter sandwich, and I needed the freezer space (but oh my golly I could have used the deck it's -5 right now.)
Did you experience Religious Trauma Syndrome in leaving religion?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 1, 2018:
I think my leaving religion was so gradual that it just got lumped in with the other traumas/changes going on in my life at the time. We moved to Omaha, I realized I needed to get some sort of training to be able to get a job and get a divorce, menopause, divorce, economy tanking and job loss, unemployment, and heartbreak. I discovered that most church congregations do not appreciate mature single females in their midst, even liberal churches were not very welcoming. It was a rough few years. I lost some friends, but I found myself. I think it was a good trade.

Who Said There Are No Atteists In Foxholes?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 1, 2018:
I think that came about because in periods of extreme stress we're likely to invoke a deity. It is irrational and the "believers" take it to believe we all recognize the deity, that our subconscious recognizes the deity. I believe we're just trained that way. Last winter I was in a slide on ice and trying to avoid the car in front of me. I was swearing in German which is not my native language. When my kids were little I'd swear in German because they didn't understand it and if they did repeat it no one else would understand it.

Am I the only one who is super excited about the holidays being over?!
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 1, 2018:
My "holidays" aren't truly over. Two more family birthdays to get through, mine being one of them. Since I don't go overboard for the holidays I neither love nor hate, I just get through. Another day, another dollah.
So now that ya'll have had the night to reflect, do you feel more motivated to face the year?

Has the metoo movement affected your dating life or the way you interact with people of the opposite...
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 1, 2018:
I think open and honest communication, and consideration that we are equals is the key. For me, a guy telling me he has a hard on is not sexy or welcome, and while not necessarily harassment it isn't going to further the relationship. If I'm connecting with someone and they feel it too, and ask, do you want to go further... that inspires my confidence. Men can't just assume that they are going to get laid, or worse demand to get laid. As soon as a man plays the power card its outright harassment, whatever kind of power he thinks he has over me.
Please Believe You Are A Valuable Person

Is in it Strange That We Go Online Looking for Honesty?
HippieChick58 comments on Dec 31, 2017:
Used to be family or friends would set you up, or you'd meet someone through work or church. I've moved so often I don't have lots of connections anywhere, nor family besides my kids in the area. I don't meet single men my age at work and I don't go to church. So online dating is the only way for me to meet single men. And the success has not been overwhelming. However, if you don't try the odds will be worse. Hope springs eternal.
Did you ever dream about something and it came to fruition?
HippieChick58 comments on Dec 31, 2017:
I had a very real seeming dream while pregnant with the youngest that it was a boy. I have all girls. At one time after I started a antidepressant medication I dreamed my clothes were hanging on a clothesline, and hopped down and started frolicking in my yard. I haven't had a clothesline in my adult life. So petty much I've never had a dream come true.
New Years' Resolutions?
HippieChick58 comments on Dec 31, 2017:
I used to do resolutions, but realized that I rarely kept them beyond a week after NY. So I made one last resolution: To never make another New Year's Resolution. I have successfully kept that for more than 10 years. The thing is, as the year goes on when I realize things need to change, I do so then.
Can you recommend a new hobby to me?
HippieChick58 comments on Dec 31, 2017:
I sew, crochet, knit, counted cross stitch and needlepoint, I make soaps, lotions, lip balms. I garden. I read. I have many many hobbies and activities. What are you looking for? Most of mine keep you indoors and not really active. I finished a quilt top this weekend, it will go in to the quilt shop next weekend to be quilted. So it is time to start a new quilt top. It can be an expensive hobby to start up.

HippieChick58 comments on Dec 31, 2017:
I don't think science encourages blind devotion. Science welcomes questioning and testing. Science is challenged all the time. I too prefer not to take medications, not for "science" but because I don' t trust big pharma. Big Pharma does not want cures, they want customers. Just tell them Question EVERYTHING, and follow the money.
Are atheist/agnostic people more susceptible to depression?
HippieChick58 comments on Dec 31, 2017:
I have endured depression as a believer and as an atheist. It was worse when I was a believer and thought that god didn't give a damn about me. Then when I figured out there is no god I still have issues with anxiety and depression. The main contributor to the anxiety/depression has been eliminated, but I still have moments. If you haven't had any depression, good for you. Just because you can't see it and don't understand it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It is brain chemistry, and situations, and probably genetics. My theory is that if I walk into an office of 100 people and ask who is dealing with depression, 75 hands will go up. 10 won't because they haven't figured it out yet. And one or more persons may have to take time off work to deal with their depression. My ex was very angry for a long time, that was his manifestation of depression.

HippieChick58 comments on Dec 31, 2017:
5 years ago I moved into a house with a split entry foyer. The garage, laundry room and family room is basement level. I had lived for 5 years in ground floor apartments, and due to some injuries I was out of shape. I fully believe the stairs have saved my life. I have to take stairs several times a day, I had to get into better shape. I did some back sliding again, working too many hours and not exercising at all, so I know I need to get some kinks worked out again. However, -8 degrees this morning isn't going to help Once summer is here I will be back in the garden again.

What I learned in 2017:
HippieChick58 comments on Dec 31, 2017:
"Life is" is something I used to tell my kids. And my other is "People are". If I had a nickle for every time I've been wrong, I might be able to retire next week. I always own it. I'm wrong, big deal, I'm human and therefore fallible. And cats... they're the most wonderful and vexing of all pets, I will never voluntarily live without one. I'm frequently alone but rarely lonely. And tomorrow we're going to wake up and relearn the same lessons and move forward because that is what we do. Good post!

Personally, Was 2017 A Good Year For You Or A Bad Year? Explain Why.
HippieChick58 comments on Dec 30, 2017:
There is no middle ground in the poll. It wasn't the best year for me, it wasn't fabulous or horrific. I got through, I'm still employed, my health is reasonably good. I expect if I checked I had a record of lack of sleep and anxiety. Didn't find love, Der Drumpf is still president. However, Sammy Grace (grandchild) is thriving, my kitty makes me laugh, and I'm still employed, and I made a quilt, read a stack of really good books. Could be better, could be lots worse.

My DNA will carry on, I have kids and now grandkids. I will leave a legacy for them, there will be stuff around for decades that SamSam and those yet to come will say "oh Grammy made this for me." That gives me comfort, that is my afterlife.
Single or Partnered, looking or not?

Single, looking but I am cognizant that the odds are hugely slim. When I first considered divorce I read an article that said most men in their 50s and above were looking for "nurses with purses".

I stayed late at work tonight to make sure all my stuff was up to date, all my emails answered and filed, all my phone calls documented and returned if necessary, all my outgoing payments released, all my documentation for the day done and everything spiffy. If I die this weekend my coworkers won't find a mess, My house on the other hand needs several days of work, and that is likely going to wait until I retire or move, and the retirement better happen first.

I started an interesting book about this very subject. God - A Human History by Reza Aslan,. I haven't gotten very far in it, and I'm running on fumes right now so kinda in brain fog, but it presents some good idea and evidence for them.

Cool!! I've checked to see if there was an app for android. It might be a good thing that there isn't, and when there is I shouldn't use it. This is one distraction I don't need at work. Really.
Not really militant, but it's funny.
