Ouch !

When they attack you and you can still find it in your heart to love them, your job is done.....

My thoughts always go to this quote from Byron Katie at those times when your family do or say hurtful things towards you and it brings me a sense of inner peace just to know it.

A Tricky Age

Sadly I have attended three funerals since this time last year and all of them were for people in their early 50's.
Is this a dangerous age that I am now entering ? 
I shall attempt to exercise more and eat wholesome healthy foods and avoid living in life's fast lane ........

Something Stinks in the Fridge

Life is full of unpleasant surprises, like the stomach churning twang of decomposing inedibles, that hits your nostrils and makes you cringe to know that this is the place where you store your food......

Later I shall have to 'Seek and Destroy' those solids that have liquified and any thing that wears a green furcoat.

Comings and Goings

At the weekend there appeared to be lots of 'Comings and Goings', my Mother flew out to Australia to visit her sister and niece for the month. We went to see our adorable grandson for the first time. Then the sad news that our daughter in~laws Father had peacefully passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Life's ever changing cycle is like the revolving door of a large hotel, with people passing through, here one minute, gone the next. All of us on our own incredible journey somewhere.........

Guaranteed Failure

To try, is to risk failure
But to not try at all, is failure guaranteed.........

Functional and Featureless

I appreciate that a minimalistic environment allows energy to flow in a more efficient way - see Feng Shui.
But I can't help thinking that all those clean lines and empty spaces, are a wee bit too featureless, with little expression of personality or creativity.
I know the arguement goes in favour of tidyness and functionality, over that of being totally cluttered and impractical, or that of having a sense of overwhelming character.
But I like my Stuff and I've got got a quirky way of showing it.
And yes it is full on and sometimes overwhelming, but it's a good reflection of what's going on inside..........

I may continue with this thread..........
