As humans we are a strange mix of self reliant and pack dependent. Our pack changes depending on our stage of life, and what our current needs are. Family is our first pack, then we morph through school friends and onwards into life. Continue reading
We all have fantasies and dreams, daydreams or overnight dreams. But are they always just fantasy or sometimes does our subconscious allow us to see what could be?
If your dreams are of being famous, winning the lottery or some such then this may not be the case. But what if your dreams are of Continue reading
This isn’t the post I planned to write and publish today but having observed people and their behaviours over the last couple of days I decided to write this one instead.
Usually people are courteous to each other, on most levels. Occasionally I see people being off hand or rude to others, but I tend to think that they are idiots and the thought leaves my head. Continue reading
Normally I am a fairly active user of social media. I use Twitter and Instagram a lot, I write posts on LinkedIn, I dip in and out of using Facebook. But when I feel a bit low, or when I get a little ‘wound up’ by it I step back.
I don’t delete my accounts or remove the apps from my phone, I just open the apps less and post less. Continue reading
I wrote a post last week on my Mental Health and in it I wrote this ‘I have Mental Health and my Mental Health is similar to my Physical Health. Sometimes I am good, others bad others OK or not really thinking about it.‘. When I wrote it it was kind of a throw away line to express how I felt, but I have spent the last week with it playing on my mind a little. Continue reading
It feels like we talk more about Mental Health these days, and that is a great thing. But it also feels like we don’t really talk about it. I have had lots of conversations with people about the topic of Mental Health, in particular Male Mental Health. Continue reading
Now you may have stumbled across this post and be thinking, wow, this is what I have been looking for. Someone is going to tell me how I use social media well and get lots of interaction.
Well I am going to start off by disappointing you. I am really asking the question not giving an answer. The reason for this being that social media is a mystery to me really. Continue reading
A dream for me has always been to work in another country. There are a few places on the list San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Barcelona, Zurich and many many more.
When I was younger I travelled a lot with work, mainly within Europe, but also to the US and some other more ‘interesting’ locations. Thankfully most of my travel these days is within the UK, no more do I have the ‘glamour’ of airports and anonymous hotels for work travel. Continue reading
Fears are usually irrational, some are based on experiences we have had, many have no real cause. I have many fears. Heights, failure, being alone, old school FIAT Panda’s (those square ones, I told you fear was sometimes irrational). But I also have a strong sense of challenge, I like to push myself, to achieve, to constantly push at my boundaries. My fears are my biggest boundaries. Continue reading
What about me?
I would like to think, and in fact have been told by people, that my online persona and my real life self are the same. I am passionate on many subjects, have many thoughts and opinions and I share them freely.
Clearly I write this blog, but I also post a lot on all kinds of different social media platforms. But it mostly mirrors the conversations I have in person, maybe a little more jokey, maybe not, depends on the subject. Continue reading
