#QOTD ‘Morality is doing what’s right regardless of what your told. Obedience is doing what your told regardless of what is right.’

Morality is doing what’s right regardless of what your told. Obedience is doing what your told regardless of what is right.
As children we are bought up to listen to our elders, the important and influential people in our lives; parents, family members, teachers. We are taught to be obedient and listen to what they say, and comply to do so. However, as we grow up, we learn there is a difference between doing what is right and doing what we are told. It’s very important to understand this difference, as following something someone says because it’s ‘well behaved’ to do so is worse than doing something that might be ‘frowned upon or bad behaviour’, but that is morally right. Make up your own mind about what is right and wrong and follow what you believe; let your gut be your guide. If you believe something is morally wrong, don’t do it! And if you believe something is morally right, stand up and fight for it – you don’t know how much of a difference you could make!

 While at school studying psychology I was taught about the Milgram Obedience experiment. This case study gave extremely interesting results, but which are quite disappointing. For more information and results of the experiment, click this link!

Moon Signs – How True Are They? 

  
I’m sure everyone is aware of their star sign, and some may check their horoscopes for the week. Personally, i’ve never really believed in this, until a couple of weeks ago I learnt that there are also moon signs. I am obsessed with the moon, so wanted to check mine out. My star sign – also known as sun sign – is Capricorn, but my moon sign is Aquarius. I couldn’t believe it, but it was incredibly accurate for my personality. 

Below are some common characteristics for Moon in Aquarius.‘Moon in Aquarius people are in essence, eccentric loners’

  • They prefer to be very different to people in every way 

This is me to a T! I never want to be normal and fit in!

  • They enjoy spending time alone

Definitely, I like to spend a lot of time alone! Helps me reflect and charge my batteries!

  • These individuals always expect to be accepted exactly as they are, along with their eccentricities

If people don’t like you for who you are, you don’t need them! Don’t let anyone change you!

  • They display a great sense of humour and are typically playful and childlike when in their element 

Spot on! See my post here about how we grow old because we stop playing

  • They are great dreamers 

You’re need to old to dream a new dream, go mad and get creative! 

  • Can be very stubborn and are prone to temper tantrums

As much as I can be stubborn and uncooperative some of the time, I rink every needs to have this side to them. When they need to stand for something they believe in, you know they won’t give in! This characteristic is very me!

  • Interesting friends with a completely unique opinion on things 

If everyone thought and felt the same about things, the world would be a very boring place! The world needs the weird and the whacky to go round! 

There were more attributes which were spot on for me, which included relationships, how we deal with feelings, and completing day-to-day tasks. I was shocked but pleasantly surprised with reading this, and I encourage you to check out your own moon sign! See how accurate it is and you might learn something about yourself! 🙂

#QOTD ‘Be the type of person you want to meet’

IMG_7765

Do you ever meet someone for the first time, but you just really like them from the minute you met? You might not be able to pinpoint exactly what it is about them; maybe it’s their loving and caring personality, their chilled out and relaxed nature, the way that everything they say is fun and makes you happy, or even just that you know you want them to be a part of your life. Be this kind of person, be the kind of person you want to meet and keep in your circle. By consciously thinking of how you want to be, you will be, for we become our thoughts.

25 Question Tag

I did the 25 Question Tag in case anyone wanted to get to know me a little better!

  1. Do you have a middle name?

No, unfortunately I was born with just a 3 letter first name! Since I was a child I’ve always pretended my middle name was Chelsea though!

  1. What was your favourite subject in school?

Definitely psychology, but I also really enjoyed Spanish! I found psychology extremely interesting, learning how the mind works, what shapes the way we think and what environments lead people to think in different ways. I also really enjoyed Spanish too, for the first few years while I paid attention! I think being able to speak another language is fantastic and wish I continued!

  1. What is your favourite drink?

Mango Ice Tea or Hot Chocolate, depending on the weather!

  1. What is your favourite song at the moment?

Justin Bieber – I’ll Show You. I am a HUGE belieber and just love this song. It was written from his heart and is all truth. He’s letting the music do the talking. I am also in love with the song Love Yourself by Bieber, because his voice just sounds like an angel!

  1. What would you name your children?

Since I was small I have loved the name Daniel, and I also love the name Tiago! But I haven’t given it too much serious thought!

  1. Do you participate in any sports?

No! When I was small I was really into playing football, but then I got lazy! I wish I had kept up some sport, but still love to watch football and formula one on TV!

  1. What is your favourite book?

I don’t have a favourite, but I love crime/thrillers. I love the Jack Reacher series, but also enjoy lighter reads. John Green is brilliant, but I am always looking for book recommendations! Feel free to comment any titles you love!

Blue!

Christmas 100%! Christmas is the best time of year without a doubt! Everyone is in good spirits, the family is all together, the food is amazing and there’s more of it than you could wish for! I love traditions and Christmas has loads! It’s always a memorable day, and the presents are always a bonus

  1. Have you graduated high-school?

Completed all my GCSE’s and got decent results, before going in to full time work. I love to travel and I believe self education is more important and applicable to real life than anything you will learn in school!

  1. Have you been out of the country?

Yes, I’m very lucky in that I’ve been abroad a lot. Many times with family and other times with friends or alone. I work hard and travel is what I like to spend my money on. I’ve also lived in Portugal for 2 summer seasons.

I have a younger sister. She’s a girly girl, and I’m a massive Tom boy. We are like chalk and cheese!

KFC, and yes it is a restaurant.

  1. Did you like school?

Like most people, I didn’t realise how much I loved school until I left. When I was young I really enjoyed learning and was quite a clever kid. When I went to upper school, I really enjoyed talking to my friends everyday and concentrated less on the learning side of things.
