Happy!

IMPORTANT MESSAGEImage MESSAGE 

I found this photo of an injured yet SMILING soldier and as most things do, it got me thinking. 

What’s our excuse for not smiling/being happy? Huh? Whether it’s simply “putting on a brave face”, sometimes we’ve got to trick our mind, our soul into being happy. 

We got up this morning=ALIVE!

We’ve got the strength to be perusing social media=HEALTHY! And I can go on…….. We have got so much to be grateful for. When I think about some of the issues others face I strongly have to ask: “What’s stopping us from being happy?!? Even while dealing with our own issues! 

Could it be you? #AhaMoment! Could you be blocking your own happiness?  From this point on let’s try to stop negative thoughts from taking away what it didn’t give.  Why not try being grateful for the things YOU DO HAVE rather than moan about the ones that are not yet in your reach. 

#Namaste and blessings for a super productive day.

Dying to plank.

It seems as though the whole world has gone crazy about a new fad called planking where people are photographed face down with stiffened arms and legs. I first heard about it via the internet and before I could finish reading the article, WHOOSH! There they were, pictures of “friends” in my Facebook network  (Trinidad & Tobago) PLANKING.

 

Now in my little research, there is a hot debate on the topic. Some folks say planking originated from the slave trade where slaves being transported were put face down with their hands tied behind their backs. When I looked up images of the middle passage crossing and compared it to today’s fad, Oh oh! Looks very similar to me. Then there are others, loads, of celebrities included, who seem to think it’s harmless fun and entertainment. Hmmm.

 

Wikipedia: “A plank is a piece of timber flat, elongated and rectangular, with parallel faces, higher or longer than wide, used in the construction of ships, houses, bridges, etc”

Floors were made from large cuts of native trees. This  became the staple floor for those homes in American Colonial times to those who could afford such luxury.

 

I’ve seen images of celebrities sports personalities, musicians, actors planking at red carpet or other formal events and before I even get to if it’s further insult to injury to my forefathers, I think YUCK. Ain’t no way I’m ever planking in my fancy dan-dan! (dan-dan = fancy clothes). As a matter of fact, ain’t no way you’re getting me to lie on any dirty floor, fridge, table, building whatever to be” in style”  fancy clothes or not. I’ve heard reports of even one man dying! Apprantly the higher you go to plank, more kudus are given to the planker, more pictures on social networks.  And you risk falling. People have also lost their jobs when pictures of them planking surfaced. I’ve seen a picture of a baby being planked on a microwave! WTH!

 

For some of the celebrities planking for the fun of it. If they so need to act a fool (my opinion) couldn’t they at least get something positive out of it? How about getting one of their endorsers to give to a charity of their choice every time they planked at an event?

Me, I just think most of the people doing the plank, should simply just be spanked. Buh daiz me.

Wha allyuh think?

Disclaimer: The images used in this post are not my own. They were simply “borrowed” from the internet for those of you not familiar with planking of any type so you can compare.
