More change

It’s very sad when someone emotionally lives without any regard for anyone else, but themselves.

There is always a reason but that doesn’t make it any easier for those around them. I like many others cannot always change things and would want things to be different, but know they never …

Our health

Something inspirational:

“Poor health is not caused by something you don’t have; it’s caused by disturbing something that you already have. Healthy is not something that you need to get; it’s something you have already if you don’t disturb it.”

Emotional clutter

Emotional clutter is something we all have. With a barrage of things outstanding that constantly need addressing, with the pressures of everyday life etched firmly in our minds. With family that have their own opinions and give us a hard time, with past mistakes haunting us, it’s not surprising that the anxious feelings we get are that of emotional clutter.

It depends on what I’m dealing with as to how I get rid of mine. If I’m dealing with a situation that makes me feel threatened or insecure, space between me and the other person is always a …

Egos

I know many people who live behind their egos. An ego is a façade; it’s a mask, but it’s not who we really are.

Me and my blogs

As I write, my blogs continue to highlight many of my strengths and some of my weaknesses. My content of my blogs, also continue to give me a focus on all that is positive.

My writing has given me new choices. Choices I would never have been strong enough to make, or determined enough to change. I have a little more clarity now on some of the decisions I need …

Two of a kind

It’s never easy being a twin, unless twins are treated as individuals. Neither of us faired any better, or were treated any differently. We attended the same school, were in the same class and had the same friends.

Being one of a twin and being born second, meant that I would always lean towards my twin. With twin scenarios, it’s usual to have one twin that leads and couple that with the fact that I had …
