Keeping busy is one of the best ways to overcome boredom and for the young, keeping constructively busy, keeps them out of trouble. We obviously also need down (me) time, as we have to take time to look after all aspects of our holistic health and well-being. I have always made a conscious effort to … Read moreSingle and constructively active
I’ve been reading the numerous Tweets of those who (rightly or wrongly) feel they are being marginalised in society. Human nature has a natural tendency to be selfishly insular and if balance isn’t sought, with a determination to step back and take a panoramic view on life, it can lead to fear and a victim … Read moreToo Much
With the exception of sharing our mothers wombs with our siblings, as part of twins, triplets or more, our ‘Genesis points’ usually begins in singularity. We obviously live most of our child-hood as a single person and (as mentioned in my ‘Single and Secure’ post) we learn about relationships from those around us. Worldly contradictions … Read moreBeing Single
We go through life with differing attitudes, our expectations can be positive, negative or a combination of both, depending on our past experiences, emotional/spiritual state and how we choose to deal with others. The saying “misery loves company”, is true, therefore it’s possible for miserable people to attract others and have a relationship. However, in … Read moreDon’t Settle
October was an interesting month. Mainstream media was lapping up the polarising comments and (obviously parental assisted) mission of Greta Thunberg. There was the both annoying and disruptive, ‘coming out’ of those (with more money and time on their hands, than sense) XR Cult members, a.k.a. Extinction Rebellion. The continual 2-Party US political war, continues, … Read moreOctober 2019, BHM, Greta, XR, POTUS and countdown to Brexit?
Being unique individuals automatically equates to us being diverse in our tastes and opinions. The sometimes emotive but always subjective, topic of “beauty” ranks high on the list of personal taste and opinion. Our character, nature, how we view life and treat others are the real measure of the beauty we contain as human beings. … Read moreNatural beauty and other aesthetics
I was scrolling down my Twitter home timeline recently and I saw a conversation between two women concerning broken men and relationships. It reminded me of the real world face-to-face conversations I’ve had with females, who’ve bemoaned the emotional and broken state of many single men. We all know that ‘brokenness’ is not a preserve … Read morePositive emotional expression.
Still on my break from the books, I thought I would share another encouragement piece. Riches…The word provokes very strong emotions in people, for a number of obvious reasons. Are you of the camp which believes you either are or you’re not rich? Or maybe you think more expansively, believing that riches are subjective and … Read moreThe Rich List
Taking a short break from the books, if you enjoyed ‘I decided’ I hope you enjoy this… I couldn’t, being born and raised in England, hate White people. I couldn’t, having a Black mother and wife, hate Black women. I couldn’t, loving my mother, wife and 3 daughters, be a misogynist. I couldn’t, share and … Read moreI couldn’t
Occasionally you read an article or quote, or hear someone on TV say that they don’t see colour. I think it’s one of the most ridiculous things that anyone can say, in an attempt to seem inclusive and ‘non offensive’. It’s a fact of life, human beings, whether male or female, come in various shapes … Read moreLove and colour
