Complete Bafflement

Why do some people do the things they do? Why do they adopt particular attitudes and hold certain opinions? What is it within them that makes them see some things as clearly as the hand in front of their face yet renders them unbelievably oblivious to what's surely obvious and essential? I am completely filled with bafflement at a string of recent developments in my emotional life. I hope coming events bring at least a degree of enlightenment and with it, oddly, reassurance.

Seize The Day

We are often encouraged to "seize the day". Quite right too. Surely it is up to us to make the most of every moment and extract as much opportunity as we can from every experience and encounter that comes our way. But what if someone else gets there first? What if we can't "seize the day" because someone else has already seized it? Actually, days don't work this way, even if they sometimes seem to. It is important not to assume that you have been pipped to the post. That victory line is yours. You will yet cross it.

What Makes You Special?

What makes you special? What makes you different? Stand back and recognise the wonderfully inspiringly obvious. You are you. Nobody else in this whole wide world can be the person that you are, or lead your life. You may have many similarities with your fellow humans and you may even have qualities in your own personality that you wish you could alter. But none of this detracts from your unique glory.

Nature Always Laughs Last

For as far back as I can remember, people have under-estimated me. Just a girl. All have had their opinion. Really, though, they have no idea. None what-so-ever.
Oh, they've all tried to define me….those arrogant sorts. They've tried to crumple me into their narrow, distrustful little mentalities. Just be like this, just be like that…as if I were a page in some often-read book and they, alone, ran the library. Relentless, they have been…these self-involved types….frantic, arrogant and relentless. It is, I suppose, in their nature. But nature, you see, always has a bigger plan. And nature always laughs last.
Some always challenge my values...attempt to publicly shame my ideas...Be forewarned, the negative sorts will lay a lot of eggs. My advice to those in the same boat...  stay strong, spiritually and emotionally.  It is important to realise that negativity exists in this world because we need it… like a ship needs a compass …so that we may overcome the undiscovered parts of ourselves and sail to new horizons.
Stand by your principles, walk silently and be beholden to no one. It is the way of all wisdom.
