Please Wait, Self-Adjustment in Operation!

Please wait

I recently attempted to make some copies on one of those large copy machines and it didn’t seem to be responding. As my patience was waning, I looked down and noticed the message it was showing me: Please wait, self-adjustment in operation. That simple, machine generated message struck me as very profound. There are times when we humans could use one of these messages displayed on our own foreheads.   There have been times in my life that I have become aware of the need to make … [Read more...]

I might not be rocking the boat but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to set sail!

We never lose friends.

  Don’t ever confuse politeness with agreement. Have you ever been pressured by a friend or an acquaintance to jump onboard with something that they are passionate about? I seem to get this a lot. While I am happy for others who have found something they absolutely love, I can’t possibly sail away on every ship in the sea! After all, I have my own ship to navigate! I would love to shore up everyone with encouragement but I’ve learned that seems to send conflicting … [Read more...]

To friend, or not to friend?

pending-friend-requests-in-facebook_timeline_2013

It's brutal being single these days. It used to be that a guy knew the correct protocol when pursuing a lady. Now, there are so many conflicting messages and opinions about how to approach women that it makes even me crazy! Here are just a few questions for the guys on the whole social media aspect of relationships: Upon meeting someone, is it ok to send a friend request on facebook? Do you consider it stalkerish? Is it ok to post pics of a first date on social media? At what point do … [Read more...]

I love you!

I-love-you

I was recently reminded how quickly life can change directions. In a split second everything that seems to matter so much becomes unimportant. The shopping list, the holiday project, having that cute handbag, decorating, school, disappointments, an argument, traffic, the gym, that mean person that you wish you could avoid…… all of these things that are in your head don’t mean anything at all when your life or the life of a loved one is in jeopardy.   Last weekend, as I was … [Read more...]
