The child within

Anyone who bothers to know me as a person knows that on a daily basis I fight with obstacles that throw themselves like a bus in front of me. Some days my “fight” feels so encompassing that I really could give up.

I’m tired of fake views, fake likes, fake news.

I’m tired of fake friends, fake smiles, fake fake fake.

In today’s society where everyone is defined by their social media’s there is a generation of people rising that no longer see what’s around them, no longer enjoy what’s around them. It’s only what is found at your finger tips that is becoming important. The affirmation that you seek via social media the likes, the comments etc.

The comments that reinforce your belief that as a person you are acceptable, you are liked. You are important.

Stop, have a conversation. Get to know someone. Jack who lives 1000 miles away may “like” your status or your photo. But “Jack” is not any more significant if you compare “Jack” to “Doris” you sister, your friend, your aunt, your cousin. Affirmation begins at home, so make sure that you look at those children and those close to you and make them feel that they are special, important and worthwhile.

Be the child again and remember what’s really important.

Within these four walls

So I’m on the bus now. A little while ago I was sat at home in front of my television drinking my tea and putting my face on to get ready for work.

The news was on and on my screen came the story about the couple from California keeping 13 of their children shackled in their home. Absolutely shocking.

But what’s more shocking might I add is that despite 13 young people basically missing no one noticed or reported something was amiss. No one!!

That bit puzzles me because you can’t just hide a family of 13 just like that with absolutely no one noticing ? Clearly it seems you can.

We don’t know yet the logic of their actions (clearly there is none) but what they are thinking. Were they both mentally ill, drug addicted, drunk or just plain evil.

Whatever the reasons behind it, I think personally I struggle with the fact that people never think to raise alarm warnings when a family of 13 . Thirteen!! Young people are no longer being seen. Are people that consumed with their own lives they just go about their days without thought?

Baffling.

So no flowery blog today because this news item has just really bothered me as a human.

Balance

I woke up a little while ago and was about to leap up in a panic, jump in the shower and dash out of my front door.

Then I realised it’s Sunday and I actually haven’t got work today.

Work has become so all consuming that it’s stealing my weekends because it’s in my thoughts.

Anyone else have this?

So I’m laying here thinking that the balance in work and home life is tipping the wrong way at the moment.

I’ve touched on this before in previous blogs about how much of our lives we spend doing that activity called working.

It seems way too much. So I’m calling for a new work life balance. 3.5 days per week work and 3.5 days per week home life.

That balances don’t you think?

The bite

Well my bite is not as bad really. Yesterday I had a huge day helping someone and frankly it was a long haul day.

When you sit with someone you have helped for 4 months and you finally get to hear the other sides very practised lies then present them with clear written evidence which totally blows their lies. It’s a good feeling.

I cannot bear liars.

One of my huge red lights is a liar. Especially someone who lies in order to discredit someone to hide their own behaviour. Even worse when the liar is a manager.

Managers get paid far more than subordinate staff to do their roles. They’re paid to lead and set example and manage.

But often you find the manager will have some flaw as do most people. We all have flaws.

A huge flaw is trusting the wrong people and then sharing your wrong doings in text messages and thinking it won’t be shared.

Well it was and yesterday I saw pale turn to beetroot in less than a minute as I read out the offending text.

So I’m thinking today someone may have some explaining to do.

Second life blog turned into Sansar moment

*UPDATE* Ebbe Altberg and some of the team have liaised with Ryan and it looks to be that this situation is on its way to being resolved. *Dialogue is always a great thing.*

I actually was planning to talk about lovely winters thoughts and such like in this blog this morning regarding second life.But standing here at the bus stop reading my feed I saw a statement from Ryan Schultz that he feels he cannot blog at the moment because yet again someone from the lab has dived in wearing size 26’s and done the take it down or else statement. Link to his Blog

Honestly some days I do wonder about folk.

Positively promoting your experiences. And here you go yet again size 26’s and alienate folk. If you consider that experience a secret….shhhh don’t tell anyone it exists and certainly don’t let anyone enter. Simples. Put disclaimers in entering the experience. I’d say that’s logical isn’t it?

Have you guys in your ivory towers put a sign on the logging page for the experience that states No, go away, no one can know or see!!!!

Or have you now taken the decision that ultimately you are going to take down every single blogger and vlogger just to show you can and scare monger?

Be clear about what you expect . Don’t hide it in the little print. If an experience is not allowed to be seen, common sense is a disclaimer at the teleportation of wording that says so.

Be thoughtful to people who visit. Sansar needs the promotion and here you go and upset a person who promotes it daily, often a number of times a day?

I’m thinking High Fidelity may soon see a surge of interest. In fact I’m reloading it tonight!

And now for the nice stuff….
