TO BE OR NOT TO BE

We live in a world where its harder to say what you feel because we don't want to offend our friends and family. It takes an enormous amount of courage to stand up for what you believe in, because the consequences may result in standing alone. If you can't be honest with those who are close to you then who can you be honest with ? Truth may seem harsh but the alternative means living a lie that doesn't represent your stand. So brace your views and let people inside who you really are.

FUSSY FOR FRIENDS

I don't have many true friends, i find that its hard to make friends that i can feel confident that they will go out of their way for me or at least show me the respect that i would show them. I don't have a lot of spare time which makes me more less tolerant for the lies people say. I find people keep a lot of what they are thinking to themselves which makes me feel that they are holding a lot of themselves back. Why should a start a friendship with someone who can only handle my honesty in small amounts. If you can't be yourself to people than its better to wait till you can with the right people.

THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE !!!

DIFFERENT BUT SAME

There is no such thing as a dumb nationality, just dumb people. So do not let the ignorance of others convince you that one nationality is better than some ones else. There is good and bad in all races, so stand out and be the good rather than standing out to show others the narrow mindedness that you believe your representing a entire race.

FACING YOUR CHOICES

In life the choices we make can change our way of thinking and affect our way of living. Choosing to marry, have children or have a mortgage are all decisions that will change your life, and should only be made with the understanding that your choices will have repercussions. The bigger the choice the bigger the ripples pinch and pull at our way of life. The weight of our choices shouldn't be taken lightly because we live by our choices and there is no escaping their affects. So think hard and choose wisely otherwise you'll be left with only regrets.

QUICK UNDER THE RUG

Without equality to remind us that we are in the same boat, we only leave room to highlight that rules are just for the few. The best way to stop the bitching is to take away what people bitch about.

WAIT FOR IT

The more comfortable you get in life the more you get surprised by the curb balls that life throws you. So maybe just brace yourself for the next challenge and remember complaining about a boring routine could be the least of your problems.

CAN YOU FIX IT

We all see things in the world we wish we could change but how many of us try to fix any of them. Some problems can be fixed, Are you up to the challenge of fixing something that you'd normally complain about and then say "IT'S NOT UP TO ME TO FIX IT ANYWAY" ?.

LET YOUR MIND SET YOU FREE

The more of a closed mind you have the less of life you've chosen to let in. If you've closed your mind to certain possibilities because the chances are low and not probable, then you may as well close your mind to the miracles that happen in our every day life. Life is made up of moments that challenge what we consider possible whether you just see them as serendipity moments or you believe them to be much more then random events in our life, its hard to deny that we are flying blind in what we know about life. Our rational mind has convinced us that the easier explanation must be the answer but our curiosity side strives to know more about the meaning behind the our unanswered question. Its this part of us that keeps our mind open and transforms the impossible into the possible, but what our cynical minds cant fathom is that you'll need to put a little blind faith in the things you might not understand unless you want to overlook the affects of the possible circumstances that you never planned for. Its sometimes the smallest things that you have overlooked that can cause the biggest impact in our lives, so keep your mind curious and open to the probable and you will be free to see what others fail to appreciate.

THIS IS MY UNIFORM ,YES I MUST WORK HERE

Uniforms in a workplace can help people work out who's in charge, but it also has the power to turn a relaxed environment into a stuffy one. Without the proper uniform you would just think two people were having a conversation. This may not work in all working environments but sometimes a name tag is enough to direct you to the right person without feeling you've have to change how you communicate with someone because they are the authority.

SERIOUS WHEN IT COUNTS

There is more strength in admitting you have a weakness, then attempting to fool others by denying you have any weakness's. Spending most of your time acting childish but being serious when making big decisions is much more mature than being serious all the time and making rushed decisions when you should of put your priorities in order.

ROUTINE A NECESSARY EVIL

As much as we try to mix up our days with a plethora of short term goals to escape the boredom, we can't help to manage our time with routine. Without routine we find it hard to work out what's next. The things that make our lives monotonous are also the things that helps us get through the day.

YOU NEED ME IM HERE

Ready to help with someone elses problems? If you find it hard to solve some of your own dilemmas why not challenge yourself by using what you know to help another. You may have the skill set to help your neighbour or someone a little further out. Why not test yourself and help someone who needs your help now.

DONT WORRY BE HAPPY

If you only focus on the things that matter, you would suddenly realise that if it doesn't affect you in any way than you don't need to worry about it. Worrying about anything that you are powerless to do anything about doesn't help you through the uneasiness of that situation. It takes calm rational thinking without the pressures of what could go wrong to realise that what will happen is still going to happen. You were never able to influence the final result, so don't worry be happy and go with the flow because unless you're in a relaxed state of mind your likely to make a rash decision. Unless your one of the few who thrive during the pressures of a tough decision and are able to come out with a more suitable answer because your forced into a corner with no time to think of the variables that can distract you from your instincts.

YOUR YOU AND IM ME AND TOGETHER WE ARE WE

Time to challenge yourself once again, this challenge is for the whole day and night included. Can you maintain a positive attitude without bringing yourself down by criticising another individual or group.

YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY

Road rage can get the better of us. So do you think you can challenge yourself to not let it take you over?. Its too easy to want to teach a lesson to a  disrespectful driver who is overdue a lesson in manners, but if you don't let it consume you there is greater chance you'll be better off. Staying away from those who find it hard to be civil and show little common sense could be the smartest thing you could do in a bad situation.

Challenge to yourself are you able to make a new friend ? Sounds easy how about turning a foe into a friend and by foe i mean enemy or someone that you find it hard to click with or someone you might not particularly like. So do you have what it takes to succeed at the challenge ?

BUBBLES INTEGRITY COMPROMISED

A challenge for yourself, put yourself in a negative environment and try to stay positive. Is it possible? And for how long can you keep your bubble from bursting ?

KARMA CONNECTING PEOPLE

Life is made up of choices and consequences that can cause a chain reaction to our environment, good or bad the results are influenced by our choices. You may feel that the things you do don't affect the world much but we are all connected in away that we can feel empathy and sympathy for one another which bounds us to our humanity. Negative behavior will only come back two fold and sometimes can consume your own lifestyle. So help others as you would want to be helped and remember under another set of circumstances you could be the needing help.

FATE IS INEVITABLE

In life their is constant change, whether we like it or not there is nothing you can do to stop it from happening. Whether its physical or a mental change it is still going to happen, and unless you adapt to it you will be left stuck in the emotional dramas that can hold you back from dealing with the life that you didn't plan for. So brace yourself for the tough times and enjoy the good times because it's not easy to see what's around the corner.

THE POWER IS IN YOU

KICK START YOUR WEEK WITH A QUOTE A WEEK

I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.

–Stephen Covey

LOST MY BUISNESS

I had a successful furniture business where i was making $1000 dollars each working day. Personal and business issues resulted in me getting a divorce and losing much of what i owned. I am now in a position where i have to start from scratch and work for wage. Not only  has my lifestyle had to change but losing my family relationship has hurt me. Now I'm trying to pick up the pieces but its hard to encourage my kids to do the same. I try and be strong for them and i find it a struggle whenever i pick myself up, i feel that something out of my power brings me back down. I wish things were the way they used to be.

WORK BULLIES

I feel frustrated when all i want to do is my job and to be treated like everyone else. It seems that my boss has worked out how to push his staff out of a job in such a gentle way that it can't be classed as work case bullying. He chooses his words carefully and covers his selective bad treatment up by throwing the odd staff member names in the mix of mistakes. But if i was to do some of the things that his so called favourite staff do, i would be in his office so quick my head would spin. It doesn't matter what i try to do, i feel like I'm always in the bad books for even the smallest of things. I just wish that if its wrong for me than it shouldn't be right for anyone else.

MY KIDS ARE HERMITS

My kids spend all there free time in their bedroom playing computer games. It doesn't matter how gorgeous the day is outside, they would rather be indoors. I feel that staring at the screen all day and not talking to real people is bad for their health. It doesn't matter what i tried they complaining that this is what they would rather do with their time. What is wrong with kids these days ?

ADDICTION

I spend most of my money on gambling. When i get paid weekly, the first thing i think of is can i make my money back. A lot of times i win at the start but the small amounts isn't enough to get me out of my money problems. It feels as if even when I've saved money my bills come at the time. I feel its hard to do anything without worrying where my moneys going. I was thinking about working extra hours but then i felt tired all the time, which made me feel antisocial. They say you can't buy away your problems , id love to try.

WORK, BORING!!!

I seem to be able to get jobs quite easily, but i find it hard to stick to a job. Within 3 to 6 months i get bored. Once i know the job there seems to be nothing about the job that keeps me interested. The more i try to make it work the harder i find it to convince myself that this is the job for me. I find it hard to think that I'm supposed to be in this same job for another thirty years or so. I have had such a variety of jobs that i still can't find the perfect one. Am i supposed to settle ?

FATHERS BROKEN PROMISES

My father keeps on making promises that he can't keep. He seems to find excuses that he tells me whenever something goes wrong. I think he believes the things he tells will happen but the more times he breaks his word, it becomes a lot harder to believe him with even the simplest of tasks. I now only believe things will happen when they happen. Its hard to get excited because i start to feel a bit foolish for believing the broken promises.

ANGER MANAGMENT

I find myself getting angry way more easier these days. Even the small things frustrate me. Im not sure if people seem to be getting on my nerves because of the stupid things they say, or because my patience can't handle the repetitive mistakes they make. What happened to people being courteous ?

HELP PLEASE

I've raised my sons alone from when they have been very young, and have worked two jobs trying to make ends meet. Now close to retirement I've now told my kids that i can longer support them with the extra cash that i have given them here and there. But now i find that they're not calling as much or visiting me. It saddens me that all that i have given them and all that i have done for them  that they haven't appreciated it.

NO, ME FIRST !!!

We line up in queues everyday whether we are waiting for food or paying a bill, but it doesn't matter how many times we do it there still seems to be some people who act as if they aren't use to waiting. Patience has now been replaced with arrogance. I personally prefer patience.

FRIENDSHIP TESTED

The only true way to fully appreciate the solidarity between good friends and family is to see them in action under bad circumstances. Their strengths and weakness ring true of their core self. Instincts that struggle to hide what sometimes is disguised by a smile. If you have the best intentions in mind you don't need to excuse your approach.

MY TIME IS NOW, OOPS JUST MISSED IT

A challenge for yourself, Don't wait for the new year to have a new year's resolution. Do it now, that's if you can't figure out a quick enough excuse.

MY SCHEDULE IS RUINED

Its funny that even though some hairdressers may have 2 girls at the counter looking ready to help even the 3rd person that gets called out from the private room isn't still enough to get a haircut for a male because what happens if while he gets his 5 minute haircut the appointments come in. What a travesty!!!

HIDE AND SEEK

Parking infringement officers who hide in the shadows and wait till their soon to be victims leave the safety of the car are even lower than those who steal openly.

NO NOT THE RAIN

Why when it rains do we have a tendency to duck as if we are trying not to get wet. Do we think we can dodge the rain or are the raindrops that heavy that they knock us down low. Maybe our commando low run might help or maybe we just look funny doing it.

Thursday, 5 June 2014

NO, NOT THE TRUTH

The more easy going you are, the more people like to test your boundaries. Easy going people may take longer to get angry but when they do, its time to stay away if you don't want to hear the blunt truth.

SURPRISE, SURPRISE

A word to the wise , if you expect positive feedback from someone you must be nice. Don't be shocked if your rudeness brings back a negative attitude back to you. Your actions will have repercussions, who would of thought that ?

MYSPACE IS YOUR SPACE, I THINK

Our privacy can sometimes be overlooked or even ignored, whether or not the motives involved had our best intentions in mind. It can still be hard to forgive the intrusion because of what someone else thought is a priority isn't high on your priority list. I say if you don't like someone in your personal space don't be surprised if the don't like you in theirs.

ASKAHOLIC AND LIVE CURIOUS

Ignorance is bliss, or so they say it is. Living your life without questioning or challenging yourself is only doing yourself harm. Without curiosity or the desire to search for the truth good or bad, you only agreeing to the limitations that you've put on yourself. Curiosity may have killed the cat but it doesn't have to weaken your search for the truth.

SAFE OR SORRY

While driving to work today I saw a motorbike with the rider wearing the license plate on his back. It looked like string was around his neck and tied to the license plate. I wanted to use my phone to take a photo but the laws prevented me from taking a photo. When the law gets in the way of a priceless moment something's wrong.

LOVE ME, LOVE ME NOT

If love is unconditional, Hitler's mum would of had her work cut out for her. If it isn't, do we lose the love at the same time that we lose the respect? Respect is it fair to demand it even though it means disappointing those you care about ?

ANALYSE THEN CRITICISE

Sometimes the people we surround ourself with can propel us to greater heights and sometimes they can hold us back. It is up to you to choose the friends who will amplify your positive attitude and not the ones who strive to keep you in a negative frame of mind because they are jealous of your success.

IF IT QUACKS ITS A DUCK

Why do some people believe you have to be a dick to get things done ? Is it possible that they can't handle the stress so they just vent on who ever is around rather then using a little common sense. Hostility breeds tension and if that is okay with you them you may as well accept thefact that they're happy to be dicks. I say if they act like it then treat them like it.

HAVE ANY TIME

Wouldn't life be so much better if you woke up naturally rather than by our mobile phone alarms. Forcing us to limit our waking time so that we can be alert when we're at work.

READY TO INSPIRE

The key to happiness is to discover your passion and pursue it with all your might. The key to depression is to give up on anything before you give it all your got. If you want something bad enough it will the biggest challenge you have ever faced. So are you up for challenging yourself ?

SURE I'LL DO THAT FOR YOU.......

Their once was a time when the saying" you scratch my back and I scratch yours" gave you comfort that someone had you covered. Now putting your neck on the line doesn't always mean you will have the same support when it counts. So leaving you with the all important question, Would have they done this for me if the shoe was on the other foot ?

THE RULES ARE WHATEVER I SAY THEY ARE!!!

What's good for the goose isn't good for the gander. Why would the same rules apply to everyone when I prefer the company of others seems to be norm? This attitude malfunction seems to make it hard to show people that we are all a part of the same team. Team is easy to say hard to believe when you hear so much bitching. Could the bitching be justified or is what's right what ever they say it is?

WHATS YOURS WILL SOON BE MINE

Fact or fiction If someone burglars your home and hurts themselves they can sue you. Do you know the answer ?

ITS GOOD TO BE THE KING !!!

Does anyone know how the first kings and queens we decided? What separated their bloodline from the commoners? Why were they considered Nobel? Was it more money or strength that made them in rulers?

ME FIRST

Merging traffic seems hard for people to accept that they may have to sacrifice 3mtrs of space to allow for cars to merge. Is it the fact that the 3 seconds they may lose to get to there destination that upsets them or that the person in front of them is now leading? Not that we're in a race.

LOOK EVERYONE IM ABOUT TO SAY SOMETHING

It's human nature that steers us to share our thoughts with friends and family. But are we sharing too much irrelevant information on the social medium. Do our Facebook friends really need to know what we're about to eat and what we're thinking of wearing? Maybe that might better said in person because as written words on our popular social network it just sounds boring.

I WANT THAT YESTERDAY

We seem to have changed into a society who refuse to wait and expect things now. Technology leaps have shown us that we should expect more out of everything and on a much shorter time frame. This has affected some into being impatient and rude while others really didn't need the excuse. So maybe its time to slow down and use that extra time you now have to be compassionate and empathise with the common man and woman.

I LOVE THIS, IN YOUR HOME

Decorator gives us the power to create a personal touch to our homes which helps us extend our own unique style by creating a sanctuary that shows people who we are. To others decorator is just there to fill in gaps, and if it looks good its a bonus. If you think you know a person well enough and you have chosen to take the bold move by giving someone decorator to bring some colour to their canvas, don't be surprised if their style is not your style.
Some people also like to paint their own canvas because it helps them feel that they have some choices in life because of all the other choices which are controlled by obligations.

JIM OF ALL TRADES

I drove by a Jim's window cleaning van and thought Jim must be a busy guy because he must have his fingers in every pie in sight. We know you can trust him with our lawn but how far can his honest brand take him. If your not sure just ask Jims advice for the unsure, and ask for Jim.

HELP, I THINK

If favour's came with provisos would people have second thoughts before accepting another person's help

RETAILERS STAY AND THE PUBLIC WHATEVER

Public holidays a great idea for the public, but not so great for the retailers. Public holidays remind retailer workers that their not part of the public but that they are there to assist the public depart with some of their well earned money. For those who try to burn the candle at both ends good luck dealing with the public when your tiredness starts to affect your patience metre. Especially when the public are constantly reminded that they are always right, no matter how unreasonable their demands are.

IN THE OLDERN DAYS

Once upon a time the words common and courtesy were experienced often throughout our day. Now we are lucky if we experience it at all, because of our rushed lifestyle we lead and the dog eat dog mentality that seems to consume the good in people. Unless we start to treat people with the respect we would want for ourselves nothing will change

ARE YOU QUALIFIED TO ?

It's funny that unless someone is wearing a white coat people don't seem to listen to the seriousness of what's being said. Advice and guidance is only followed if someone has a degree, which goes to show advice given doesn't have value unless your paying for it or so we think. Logic is what is the underlying truth, and thinking logical can not be taught. So unless you think outside the box you will only see what is drummed into your mind.

DUDE WHERE'S MY PHONE

I had lost my phone the other day, it felt like the longest day for a long time. The day dragged on because i couldn't sms, mms, email, Facebook or tweet. How sad have we become when we rely so much on our phone. Don't comment if you agree.

TIMES ARE CHANGING

In time we will all grow older, but at what age do we start to buy floral couches, wear our pants as high as they can go and start to talking to a complete stranger about our bladder control. Hopefully by the time we ready to be crazier floral couches, high pants and embarrassing conversion are all the rave.

RUBBISH ON TV

If your not enjoying tv as much as you use to than you might be part of the minority. Tv ratings control what is aired so if your not interested in the Royals past time or reality tv then change the channel and that might change what's on. It's also likely that the people you thought you knew love the shows you hate. So test your friends and ask them about the gos that your try so hard to avoid.

YOUR TIME, YOUR CHOICE

Deja vu, life is all the same until you make it different. So the choice is yours bland or riveting, the ball is in your court and time is ticking away.

THINK BEFORE YOU TOOT

It's funny that even when your car breaks down at an intersection and have your hazard lights on you still have a couple of drivers tooting their horns and swearing at you, irrespective of your 3 year old in the back seat. I think its safe to say people have lost their perspective.

DOES IT PAY TO BE BAD ?

Its sad that we've changed from a society that use to look after the righteous and now we mainly focus more on the complainer. Our fear of the bad publicity that the complainer brings takes precedence over all other matters. All this does is create a vicious circle of complainers who we have conditioned to push until they get what they want irrespective of rationality.
