Positive Tom Cat:
A Guide To Living A Positive Life

The Beginning Of Your Journey Uplifting Your Mood, and Patience.

To be positive is to be empowered by your mood. Uplifting your spirit by upholding a positive view, can help you think clearly and make better decisions, because to make the right decision you need a clear mind. If you are stressed you are more likely to make a bad decision. Fear and anxiety can cause you to respond hastily and without patience. So before you make a decision, you should take your time to take a deep breath three times before you head into the situation. This gives you the time to think and for your brain to get oxygen so it can function with a good quality.

Patience can be the hardest thing to learn but if you want something enough you won’t think about it as being hard. To succeed you have to face your fears of failure. Don’t think about the fall, think about the possibility of succeeding. No one would have invented the parachute if they thought about the fall. Remember the parachute is there to catch you before you fall.

The Tom Cat Drawing on the top of this post is my own work. Please do not steal it. If you want to use it you will have to ask me first. I worked hard on drawing it. I am going to write a book with illustrations I create. This post is part of that book.


Happy Halloween


Be afraid, be very afraid

^B^aty Bat Brat coming your way.

Happy Halloween!

Batty Bat Cutness

It has been half a year since I have gotten out besides shopping, Church with my boyfriend and his mom, also visiting with Lisa my adopted mom.

I think tomorrow will be perfect for me to get out. I will try to take pictures of my Halloween costume. It won’t be anything special, just vampire fangs and Goth makeup.

I thought I don’t like dressing up for Halloween so why not just keep it simple. I would be a bat but I don’t have the wings. I have a par of vampire fangs I had made for me two years ago, I keep them clean and fresh so if I ever wanted to use them again I can.

I hope you all have a safe Halloween and a ghoulish time.


Be well Bat Brats.

Love and Hate 

All, I understand is because I love. I find interest in subjects and situations, which I fall in love with the process that comes from my interest. To love is a knowledge of interest, and it can inspire nation’s to grow and develop. It can inspire artists, writer’s, and blueprints. Love can create life, allowing it to prosper and unite. 

Love is a universal concept but so is hate. They go hand in hand, causing change. You can’t have one without the other.

Watch “Juvenile bat squeaks while being petted.” on YouTube

For all you Bat Brat’s out there. One reason I love Bats is this. Watch the video and you will see. Such a cutie pie this Bat is. 

Knowledge Is Power

Lack of knowledge is the cause of fear.

People fear the unknown because they don’t have the knowledge to face the challenge. To gain knowledge is to face your fears of the unknown.

Before you judge, learn about the situation because you could judge the situation poorly do to your lack of knowledge. Why fear the unknown when you can face it by learning about it?

Oh My Goth ^B^ I Have Reached 300 Followers

Hello Bat Brat’s,

         Time flies when you’re blogging poetry. Weeee! I am so excited to announce that I have reached 300 followers. I had to share with you all how much I appreciate your time and for following my blog. I am very grateful and thankful. Thank you.

        I love WordPress so much. I remember my very first WordPress site, it was called Mizztwitch. I am pretty sure it’s still up but sadly I had to put it in its grave, RIP Mizztwitch. The reason I had to let it go was, the email I used ended up getting hacked. I learned after deleting two AOL email accounts that AOL isn’t as safe as I thought. I had to move my account to Hotmail. I haven’t had any problems with my account ever since. I also have another blog it was my second site called Personality101. Though My love for Gothic literature pulled me into it’s chasm of gloomy, broken heart, and ghostly encounters, that’s why I have been posting on Gothic Realms. I will never give up this blog. All my passions are on this side. When I created Personality101 I was still growing up and learning what my true passion is. I can’t change my love for Gothic literature it just keeps hunting me when I try. I have learned to stop worrying if other’s find me odd and sometimes old fashioned. I have always loved Gothic style, art, and structures. I am fascinated by Gothic culture and literature. Anything from the Victorian age and before, I am interested in. I use to visit antique stores whenever I got the chance. I can spot an antique from how it looks and feels, I can also smell if it’s older or recent work. I can tell if a piece has been washed and what was used to clean the antique. I have a very good since of smell. I have Savant Syndrome so I know that’s another reason I am good at doing certain things. I can’t really say that I have a gift, it kinda can be a hindering situation when it comes to my autism, sometimes it is a good thing to have though. I experience reality differently than most people because of the autism. I am still learning how to except my autism. I think I will until my end. I am okay with that. I love learning so bring it on. I have also learned that autism isn’t like a mental illness, it is not just a disability or a flaw in my genetics. It wouldn’t have mattered what anyone would have tried nothing can change a person with autism. We have to learn how to live with it and to expect each other. I don’t see autism has being a disability unless someone doesn’t understand what it is that’s what causes it to become a disabiling illness. Not because I suffer but because of egnorance that causes people to fear autism. 🤗

“Thank you for following my blog. May God bless you with all his grace. May happeness find you on the darkest days, and illuminate your life, beckoning you to its beautiful light.” 

An Update About My Health

Hello Brat Brat’s,

             I thought I should share with you my current health. Some of you already know that I suffer from a lot of health problems. Well unfortunately I am very sick again. I have been trying to figure out what happened to me. Though I have a feeling it is because I am older. The doctor’s say My care is complicated and complex. I suffer from a rare disorder and so it is very hard to treat. It’s frustrating when you’re doctor says, “we don’t know what is wrong so we have to add specialists to help.” Yet still they don’t know what is wrong but it is clear that I am sick. My blood pressure is high, even after I started taking medication. I now have asthma from allergies. Which I have had my own life. I just quit taking the inhaler when I turned 20 because I quite having problems, at least I thought I did. I was wrong. This whole time I have been suffering with problems catching my breath. I didn’t think it was asthma until I got fed up with it and decided to talk to my doctor. She looked at my ears and listened to my chest, she can hear fluid. Which is from my noise draining into my chest. It makes it harder to take a deep breath. Now I am back on the same inhaler. I can say this though after the first use of the inhaler, I can breathe without feeling like I am being crushed by an elephant. I was able to cough up the yucky stuff to. So I am happy about that. Now to deal with my movement problems. Also unfortunately because I have problems moving I am having problems with being borderline diabetic. That scares me because I know what that means. The doctor said I need to get physical therapy. I hope it helps. She said she doesn’t know if it will. But they are going to do their best to help me get healthier. I even changed my diet but that never was a problem. I can’t eat junk anyway and don’t care to. I love salads, fruits, and chicken. I don’t like sweat’s, very rarely do I have a candy bar. Also I like eating fish just not very often because it can be bad for you. I don’t eat red meat, I can’t. It doesn’t digest and I get very sick.

            I do think everything I have been dealing with is genetic. Why else am I having them now? Also the doctor’s can’t figure out what is causing it. I do hope my blood pressure starts going down to normal. I am going to start taking another medication to help the blood pressure medication I already am taking. I need prayers my friends and positive thoughts. I am tired of being sick.

“I am broken yet I keep running, my engine is putting out trash because it built up after all these years. My body is tired but my mind doesn’t want to retire. I am barely 36 but my body thinks I am over the hill.”

Some People Are Ignorant And Rude, How Sad (About Reviews From Walmart.com)

            Okay I thought maybe I should post about this because I noticed there are some people who are very judgemental and it is because of ignorance. Ignorance is not a bad word either. Ignorance means you lack knowledge. The word stupid means the same. So I am not using these word’s to be rude.

          Let me start with saying, I shop at Walmart and I love their online store. I read reviews just for fun sometimes. So I was reading reviews for a printer, a wireless printer. Well I saw some reviewers who complained about the printer needing a USB cable to download driver’s. When duh, you need to download the driver’s so that you can connect to the internet wirelessly. You can unplug it after you install the driver’s. Even your computer needs to be plugged in before you can download the wireless router driver’s. You shouldn’t have any trouble after you download them. You can unplug the USB cable after it finishes downloading. 

           I don’t understand why people don’t research. Also they blame the support for not responding quick enough. When have you ever thought that maybe you are not the only one calling? Also they are human beings just like you. They are not robot’s or Superman. Give them a break come on. How would you feel if you were them?

           So next time you are looking for a wireless printer don’t complain about needing to plug it in, just so you can use the driver’s for wireless connection. Think before you make accusations. Also learn some patience. Support Tech’s get too much of a bad wrap for being difficult. When they have a difficult job working to help a verity of people. Some people are not nice. Just try to imagine what it would be like for you. Give them your time instead of thinking about it as if they are giving you their time. It goes both ways when you need support. I hope this helps someone.

Recent Selfie’s

     Hello Bat Brat’s,

    I needed an avatar for my Tumblr blog. I took a few pictures for it. Here they are. I thought my followers should see how I look now. I have lost a lot of weight. You can see it in my face. I look okay for being sick. I do try to keep myself well put together. I don’t wear makeup. I am very allergic to most foundation’s and lips sticks. I also don’t put anything in my hair. I use to try new things but I stopped because I am tired of trying to look good for everyone else. I should look good for myself. 😁✌I took pictures with my hair up and down. One of My nicknames at the apartment complex I live in is Rapunzel. My hair grows very quickly. It is down to my lower back now. I set on it a lot. It frustrates me but I am okay with it. I have a phobia of hair so keeping it long helps me to deal with my phobia. I have learned to be okay with my anxiety. Okay here’s my Selfie’s. 






I Choose To Fly 

The color of my trials are gray, they burnt away. My demons are crispy and blown away from my life. All that is left of them are scares. Deep wounds, scratches left behind from my struggles. I fought hard. My angel’s fought harder. My life is no longer defined by a status.  No, it is defined by my mind. Who I decide to be is my choice. No one but I can make the leap. I choose to fly.

I had to make a new Tumblr, I haven’t been able to log into my account for a year. So I have to reconnect with my new Tumblr blog. Until I figure out how to do that here’s a link to this poem @Weathered Poetry on Tumblr.
