Trust & doing what’s right

26 Jun 2017

We’re taught from an early age and for some of us it’s drilled into us that we’re supposed to do the right thing, what’s right that even if others don’t do what’s right, we must.

And karma teaches us that we’re not only accountable for ourselves but we’re accountable to others too, how we behave, therefore it’s important we do the right thing, even if others fail to do the right thing by us. We must do right by others, as we would want others to do right by us.

Doing what’s right is also about trust. When someone puts their trust …

My rewired brain

24 Jun 2017

Although my brain compensated as I was a baby when I had my stroke, it doesn’t compensate far enough. I still struggle with significant neurological impairments, but with others assuming they know what I deal with, it makes what I deal with so much worse, not to mention stressful.

Sadly, I don’t feel in the same way as others do. The thought processes I have don’t connect to how I physically feel; in other words I can’t feel. Words are just words I don’t have any physical sensations …

Being nice

23 Jun 2017

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

They’re also not the people you would choose to spend time with. As a nation, we’ve become more self-centred, more aloof, less patient, more selfish. We’re emotionally distracted. We don’t take the time …

What we don’t know

22 Jun 2017

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 …

Adapt & change

19 Jun 2017

Adapt and change or stagnate and get left behind. Sadly, this is how it works. The capacity to adapt comes through our ability to deal with the mental, emotional and physical challenges.

How we manage to incorporate a new mind set and our subsequent behaviour, determines how successful our new mind-set and behaviour pattern will be. The key implications of change are necessary …

Education -v- being worldly

18 Jun 2017

Education opens the mind to new and exciting possibilities, but education isn’t necessarily about formal education. I didn’t quite tick the box on a formal education through no fault of mine, but still believe that just by living, failing and finding an understanding on living we educate ourselves.

The more we open our mind to life and its possibilities, the more open we will be to learning. A worldly education allows us to see the world and understand the concept of life, in the way a book education …
