Crazy Moods C.18.12.19

We all have moments of crazy. This is because no one is perfect. We tend to judge people as to how they behave and yet we forget sometimes we can behave unpleasantly.

It is easy to criticise someone who appears a little crazy, but have you not stopped to realise everyone experiences crazy moments. We simply don’t like to admit it.

So, when you have those crazy moments and in the hopes of not being judged, be crazy in private.

I hope you are gearing up for a festive season.

The Royal Feuds C.18.12.18

It never ceases to amaze me how the internet is a buzz yet again with the royals and their feuds.

Between Meghan and her dad and sister there is also Meghan and Kate.

Truly I think these people have raised themselves above everyone else and to be honest their royal arrogance is over the top and not deserved.

The world has many wealthy people and those wealthy people do not expect to be bowed at or address with a self -styled title.  And in case you haven’t got it yet, I would never bow or acknowledge a self-given title. And why do the government continue to use taxpayer’s money to lavish these people who already have more money than the taxpayers themselves.

Everyone is equal, wealthy or not. Okay rant over.

Gifting C.18.12.17

This is the time of the year when many people go crazy purchasing gifts. But how practical is it to go overboard on spending? For those people on a budget it only sends you into debt.

I think it is a great idea to exchange simple small gifts of a certain maximum value. Depending on the family financial level, it could be a gift of no more than $20 or $30.

Keep it simple this festive season. There is no reason to purchase unwanted expensive gifts or going overboard on spending.

It has taken me several years to bring myself to this conclusion but now I see this time of the year with simplicity. And the bonus – it doesn’t leave me with a mountain of debt.

Overthinking C.18.12.16

Don’t think too much. That is the advice I have for you today. Sometimes things happen in life and when we feel disturbed, we tend to let the incident go over and over in our minds. So much so, we can tend to over think things.

I know this is a point which is very difficult to overcome but if you can then let things go.

Overthinking can be dangerous to your health. In a less serious tone, it is true overthinking does sabotage you and take control of you.

So, as I said, my advice to you today is don’t overthink.

Neighbouring Complaints C.18.12.15

I think it is atrocious when neighbours have nothing better to do than complain about other people in the street.

When it comes to truly disturbing activity that is a genuine complaint then there is a polite way to approach the situation.

First, engage in an adult conversation with the fault driven person. You may come back and say some people are not approachable. And that is true because people who get complained on all the time build up a resistance and being nice does not come easy.

A lot can be accomplished when neighbours communicate in an adult way and come to some midway point of agreement.

Being stubborn or being arrogant will not correct an issue but being amicable and open to suggestions will always win a way.

And remember, during certain times of the year like birthdays, anniversaries, and the festive season – expect there will be partying. But it is up to the partying people to respect a reasonable finish time.

In this time of the year, getting on with neighbours is a great idea.

Living with Fear C.18.12.14

Fear can be paralysing. It can be caused from simple to traumatic situations. Fear can bulldoze your thoughts and leave you stiff and unable to function.

Because of incidents particularly from the post, I know of some people who will not collect their mail on a regular basis. The fear is from expecting to receive a huge bill needing to be paid or unexpected bad news.

A phone call from a government department can send waves of fear particularly if you think something is wrong.

It is difficult to control fear and even when we know we are being controlled by fear it is very difficult to let it go.

I had an experience recently where I received a call from a government department. As it turned out it was a scam. I knew I had done nothing wrong, but it was the fear that there may have been something I was not aware of. As it turned out thousands of people have been caught up in the same scam.

Yes, it was me who could go to my letter box daily and instead waited for the weekend in fear of what I might receive.

As easy as it is for me to say and yet hard to do – we have to not let fear grab control of us…

Try hard to overcome the control fear can have over you and although I battle it badly, I have to say, I have had to use every effort to subside it.

Nice or Flirt? C.18.12.13

Both men and women suffer the confusion of whether someone is flirting with them or just being nice.

This came to my unexpected attention when I was sitting chatting with friends when a guy came up and started to chat. He was bouncing his humour off one of the ladies when she turned to him with a very striping comment. She said (in an accusing voice), “are you flirting with me because – really I think that is lame”. He stood back in shock. Once he recomposed himself, he looked around and in a very polite way responded. If I had really been flirting with you, you would have known – for real. First of all you are not my type and secondly, I am still wounded from my last break up and quite frankly having a romantic moment with anyone is out of the question – oh and by the way I am gay so you are the wrong sex and finally, it is a pity you cannot tell the difference between someone being nice and something sexual. Or perhaps it is you who is sexually flirting with me and you just wanted to make me the scapegoat.

His voice echoed throughout the room as everyone stopped to listen. I sat back and laughed in my drink.

Yes, it is a shame that being nice is being labelled as flirting and we have come so far on this sexual harassment crap that we no longer have the ability to know the difference.
