By default, people are so damn impatient. They want it all - and they want it yesterday!
I deal with it every day in my business, as the print industry is exceptionally time sensitive. Nine times out of ten people do not plan their requirements adequately in advance, and therefore 99% of our production orders processed are “extremely urgent”.
Tonight, I feel like expressing myself through music more than language... so , I hope you can enjoy and appreciate the lack of written expression as well as take a little walk through my day - from a musical perspective!
Being an outspoken and honest individual is not always easy. For as long as I can remember, my inability to filter certain thoughts and/or opinions has often gotten me into trouble as well as in the middle of some rather heated discussions.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend - Melody Beattie
I can remember the morning that my life and my perspective on absolutely EVERYTHING changed forever! I literally opened my eyes that day and everything made sense to me. I no longer just understood the words of the things I had read or seen - I suddenly FELT them!
As I stood in the shower this evening and internally repeated a conversation I had with my partner earlier this morning, I started thinking about all the trouble and effort that women go through on a daily basis…
To fill you in briefly on the conversation… the man in my life is a DJ, so he mostly works nights and sleeps the mornings and sometimes the days away. In addition to this, he is probably one of the most easy going “min ge spin” people I have ever met. (it’s an Afrikaans, South African term for: not phased about anything)
School was NEVER my thing! I simply did not fit in! – In a way, that is sad, because my parents sacrificed a lot in order for me to attend one of the top High Schools in the country and in all honesty, I wasted the opportunity.
But... that was not to be my path!
Much like your house needs to be cleaned "literally" on a regular basis, it also needs to be cleaned energetically. Energy in certain spaces can build up a "residue" if you will, and the energy in that space becomes stagnant after a while - which can have several negative effects on the people who enter that space.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH YOUR LIFE...IF YOU KNEW YOU COULDN'T FAIL?! Would your circumstance and/or situation be any different to what and where it currently is?
Kalk Bay is one of those places, that no matter how often you visit - it just never gets old...It is such an enormously CHARACTER filled little suburb, you could literally lose yourself for hours, simply exploring...
I am getting just a LITTLE bit tired of how grossly self-absorbed the human race can be
What is it with people these days?! Everything is about "me, myself and I" - nobody seems to have any REAL time for anyone else anymore. Is it because we are all just "that busy"? Surely that cannot be?! - I see so many people wasting PLENTY of time all over the place, every single day! So why not rip yourself away from your coffee, book, phone or whatever it is that you are absorbed in and actually SPEAK to someone that bloody counts!
Something struck me today whilst watching my son… He is somehow always “removed” from social situations. No, don’t misunderstand that statement. He is a very sociable little boy who according to his teachers is very popular amongst his peers. What I am referring to is that he CHOOSES to remove himself from the “crowd”. Although I have always been aware of his “selectiveness” – today, for (whatever reason) it hit me! My son chooses wisely!
I recently wrote a post about Energy Vampires, and it would appear that a lot more people are familiar with it than I initially anticipated. One of the reader’s who commented on the post, asked how to “deal with” the matter – so I promised to write another post on how to guard yourself against “Energy Vampires”.
Have you ever “played” with your own energy field – or experienced the magnetism of yours combined with someone else’s? – It is quite an eye opening experience if you get it right… and one which will absolutely leave you “changed”.
Getting - and staying motivated on a daily basis can often be challenging - especially when your time is spent juggling a million and one activities... work, kids, family, dinner, lunches, meetings, sports practices, bath time, homework...
“They say” – if you are happy, you listen to the rhythm and beat and if you are depressed you listen to the lyrics… ok, well who the fuck are “they” anyway?! Clearly “they” weren’t artists of any kind! - Honestly – what planet are “they” from?!
Despite the fact that I am a complete and utter tech junkie and I love so much about our modern world - (yes, there is a lot that I DON’T like as well… but keep up people… this is a happy hippy post), I have often considered the fact that I might have been born in the wrong era.
Whether referring to fashion or decor - there is such a thing as "too much" when it comes to the use of colour. Kids are the masters of the "too much" syndrome, lol - as they will usually develop a passion for a certain colour, and then absolutely everything worn must be that colour. Sadly however, this "monotone obsession"... seems to have stuck around through into adulthood for some people. haha!
This might sound like a bit of an odd term, but it is in fact quite commonly used and yes – you can Google it. Lol! There are other terms for it too, such as "psychic vampires" or "spiritual vampires". I am not sure how “in tune” or interested in “energy” most of you are in general, but it is always something that has absolutely fascinated me – because to my mind, absolutely EVERYTHING revolves around energy and derives from energy.
OK people - we are living in the 21st century here - and I am getting a little tired of hearing the below:
• I really don't want to see that
• oh my word you post so often
• wow, that is so offensive
• I am leaving this group because the notifications are soooo annoying
• My news feed is so full of rubbish
As a mother in a generation of kids that bow down to the likes of Justin Bieber, I am VERY... VERY (did I mention VERY) proud of my little ROCK STAR!!!!
I don't know about you, but I love a lot of colour in my life! - Perhaps it is a Gemini problem and I just cant decide what I like...
OK SERIOUSLY!!! If you like bacon and hot stuff...YOU HAVE TO MAKE THIS!! DO IT! It is HONESTLY one of the SIMPLEST and TASTIEST recipes I have tried in a long time!! and so quick!!
Yesterday I attended a child’s birthday party which turned into a completely distorted bully fest among the mothers sitting around the table – well, to be more specific, I was the mother who had made a responding statement and one of the other mothers decided to use this as an opportunity to jump on to a bullying pulpit – whilst the rest of them simply sat there with mouths full of teeth.
This was one UBER tasty Stir Fry and the PERFECT recipe to prepare in my gorgeous Wok. I made a few additions to the original recipe.. which I have noted below... and might I say... they were AWESOME additions :D I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
I was REALLY thrilled with the way this meal turned out... It was DELICIOUS!! - Absolutely NO Pre-mixed ANYTHING and practically zero carbs so a great choice for those that like to eat Banting style, or just low carb.
