The universe knows

The universe works from a higher power. It knows exactly what we’re doing and when we’re doing it. If we’re being selfish, the universe knows that too; if we’re try to make a situation work to our advantage, the universe will always know we’re being selfish.

We might try to deceive, but we can’t deceive for long, we will get caught out. On our part, we should reconcile what we know is the truth, instead of trying to make something work that goes against how …

My nemesis

I tend to often reflect situations that upset me, to see if I could have done things better or differently. That way I bring closure more easily and stop blaming myself.

I know that organising my wardrobe around Claudia’s graduation wasn’t going to be easy. I still struggle with the Cerebral Palsy what to wear in the summer thing. I wanted to wear something which said …

I don’t feel. The thought processes I have don’t connect, in other words I can’t feel. Words are just words I don’t have any physical sensations to those words. I can tell myself I’m happy, but I don’t physically …

Being nice

Sometimes we’re better off staying away from people who almost make not being nice an art form. They’re mean.

What we don’t know

Although they say, “what we don’t know can’t hurt.” In theory, of course that may be true, but it’s not realistic to think we will never know or get to find out and that when we do it won’t hurt.

Finding out about anything that you didn’t know before, brings with it new understanding, not necessarily in a good way. I believe it very much depends on what we don’t know about and whether …
