clean my car
Well I don't want to really

But it’s not going to clean itself whilst I sit on my medium sized arse :D



immunise myself against affluenza and carriers of
What is it even...

WTF am I on about you might ask?

A definition first

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affluenza

affluenza, n. a painful, contagious, socially transmitted condition of overload, debt, anxiety and waste resulting from the dogged pursuit of more. (de Graaf [1])

Oliver James has written a book entitled ‘Affluenza’ I won’t review it here, but I’ll touch briefly on how he labels an aspect of modern living that affects some of us in really negative ways.In the book he interviews various people in various places in their lives. If you are a people watcher it’s worth a little peruse.

The upshot of the message is about being satisfied with who you are and what you have. Does that mean that you can’t strive for something else or want a better life. No, absolutely not, it’s more about recognising that wanting ‘stuff’ too much does you no good at all and is kind of destructive.



trust my inner voice and heed what it tells me
I kinda knew...

...but decided to believe what she said, because you just got to trust when those who say they love you tell you something, right?

Funny, cos here I am yet again having listened and trusted in what she said, only to be in the same position once again.

Cryptic? Yeah a little – Ive been a fool, again! No detail other than to say enough is truly enough.

Pity the person who is incapable of truth, lesson learnt; some people are very very sick, love cannot conquer all.
