Colors are really of peak interest to me. Meeting someone who is colorblind is very difficult and confusing to me as I can’t bring myself to get a clear imagining of what that would be like.

Recently, I highlighted blogs and websites displaying custom colors and custom fonts, which you can enable on your own site with a Custom Design upgrade. Today, let’s look at a free way to easily transform your site: a custom background.

If chosen carefully, a custom background can reveal a lot about your site’s focus, as well as your overall aesthetic. I asked a few users about the backgrounds they’ve uploaded to their sites, and how they chose them:

Gherkins & Tomatoes, Biscuits & Gravy

Cynthia, the writer and photographer behind Gherkins & Tomatoes, Biscuits & Gravy, focuses on the cuisine and rich history of the American South. Her background caught my eye immediately — it enhances and unifies her image-oriented site.

Tell us about your custom background. Why did you choose it?

I downloaded this background from GRSites, which has all…

Dear Fellow Hole Mate – Here Are My Ears

Interesting you would write the words, treatment resistant depressionSounds like a definite catch phrase to me.  Sounds like a definite “put off” to me.  Sounds like, “Here, you take this back now that I can’t think of any more to offer you right now (besides you’re not lapping up what I’ve offered already) and we’ll try again when you’re feeling better”.

What sounds most spot on to me is the word “resistant”.  And, that has its very positive aspect — at least you are responsive!

Of course, this not being the moment when you wrote what you did, who knows but what you are flying high and happy — giddy, unresponsively not taking accountability — such is the nature of our delightful illness.  We both know all too well there are multiple scenarios.

Please excuse me just a moment to catch any confused readers up to speed.  This post is in response to a fellow bipolar in a bleak and black funk (at least at the time she wrote the response I am responding to).  I am exceptionally selfish and I enjoy her writing so much I sometimes think the only way I can keep from responding to every forth or fifth post is to lock up my computer and never read her again.

She’s very young, at least in comparison to you know who, and considerably wiser and smarter, and never needs anything I might be able to offer but the pull for me to reach back to her in response to some of what she writes and offer what I think I can is too great for me to resist.

OK.  Back to being in that hole!

I applaud you that you spoke out what you most need.  You are welcome to go to my Facebook number and give a call anytime, although with my paranoia you may want to text first that you will so I’m not going – HUH? to the Canadian accent.  I do feel I’ve learned a number of good listening skills and sometimes I can even apply them.  Best thing is I am WILLING and I understand what you are saying about that as a need, desire and sometimes, prerequisite.

Alternatively . . . .

I’d like to share something if I may.  I am a fan of Abraham and will add a video to this that will have to do with the premise:  “There is nothing more important than that you feel good”.  Now, the part that I’d like for you to be able to benefit from and that applies to the post you wrote that instigated this one is that there is a technique that can be applied, ANYTIME, to create a result of feeling better.

I’ll throw out an example from my portfolio of hole moments here:  “I will always have to live with having been weak when so and so needed me to be strong”.  What I understand to do is to be general (not at all specific) and better that thought (lighten the angst).  I might try, “It does feel good she’s always been understanding and strong, made it through just fine and never blamed me”.  Upon that thought, I might build:  “I’ve always been blessed in my life with the most sterling of friends.”  And, it can go on and on, until you can smile again or even dance or sing again.  You know I always wish that for you.

All right, dear friends.  May we all enjoy our lives much more!  Kar-en, Anacarin, Karen, matey!

Lay Me to Rest, After — Long After

 I think it’s pretty safe to say I had around 8 hours sleep last night.  And the night before was close, too.  The more I open up the more I realize I have been looking for excuses.

     So, I AM happier again this morning as I began my day while still in bed, visiting with my Guidance Team, no, all my Master Mind group.  I AM so grateful to have realized them as that as well as other ways they help me.  I AM thinking especially about my Guidance Team as I named so many of them this morning.  I had a bit of a scary thought thinking how many more ore on that side.  I AM really thinking a lot how I need more friends.  I AM thinking too how much I miss the friends I turned aside in my clinical depression where I did not want to face that I was not myself and not doing what I had really wanted to do with my life.  So, I AM happier this morning that on more than one occasion in my life.

    AND, I am thankful for penzu — what a great idea!  I am so thankful it works so well, especially in posting to my blog.  I am thankful for the mind I have even though it took me about three days to remember the words heart burn after awakening in the night from it.  I know my brain has been stuffed with things I’ve hoarded for no good reason.  I am thankful to realize I definitely could benefit from some sturdy mind training.  I am thankful for Abraham whom I intend to listen to after writing this and hear at least a couple of segments on “Things Always Work Out for Me”.  I am thankful I continue to hope things will work out for me in the way I so strongly and clearly desire.  OK, maybe I can work on clarity.  This is very good.  Thanks, Penzu!

Now, for wherein I describe my life as I desire it to be.  I desire to have my car (definitely need to get more clear on that!)and my dream two story place with the roof windows in the breakfast room to live along with VibraSlim, Total Gym, a Fab rocker bed or two or three and my Pacquins Hand Cream and bubble bath.  There, I wish to have my partner, for I have been alone and lonely for way too long a period in my life.  And I desire money to come in regularly from several different streams.  And now, I desire to get going on bringing that about by getting traffic to my site.

Heart’s Desire, Persistence and Meow Meow

This morning’s Think and Grow Rich call may well have delivered the keys of the kingdom (I’m talking my heart’s desire) to me in the guise of a man named Super Duper Stan and a personal story he told about persistence.  The ingredients were college level friends, a napkin enlarged to board size and devaluation.                                                                 Go After Your Heart's Desire

Think and Grow Rich Call INVITE 4 your Heart’s Desire

Cover of "Think and Grow Rich, Original 1...

How many of you have a heart’s desire?

How many of you have a heart’s desire you see as something you’d like to hold mutual with family and friends?

Have you ever been beside yourself with excitement to share your heart’s desire with people who mean the world to you?

I’ve been puzzled for the longest time why when a certain individual came to mind I would find myself carrying on and on in an internal dialogue that didn’t make any sense to me.  I realized I kept working myself up over and over when I didn’t know the reason.  If I spoke with family or friends about it the absurdity would sound humiliating.  Today the answer to that conundrum was delivered and I wasn’t even expecting it.

As I mentioned I was on the daily Think and Grow Rick call.  The chapter was on persistence and the story was (unfortunately) an all too common one of looking forward to sharing one’s business and opportunity with one’s friends only to have them see your efforts (and your heart’s desire) having nothing to do with them to the exaggerated extent they turn their backs on you and leave you mouth agape..  It’s taken me a ridiculous number of years to see how common that really is.

It was a powerful story that I’ve experienced personally and more so to re-experience it through his still palpable hurt all these years later.  I’m pretty sure I imagined the windshield wipers slapping on the two hour drive he and his wife took home following the disgraceful, disregarding treatment of his friends.

What was key for me about the story was the sharing of feeling hurt to the level of saying, “it’s not worth it, I’m not going to do this anymore” (remember we are talking a heart’s desire here) and then the (again, for me) apt description of labeling his response “poor me”. That’s when my light bulb turned on, when I realized the “certain individual” I had warred with so often in my mind had disregarded my heart’s desire and with a mere shake of her head dismissed my abilities to ever “make it” online.

He went on to revive his persistence, in part building it on this experience, and  shines his light often on this call.  From now on, my short reference reminder to myself between persistence and my heart’s desire will be Super Duper Stan.  Thank you, good sir, Super Duper Stan!
