Look At The Good

This is just a quick little post, but I noticed on Facebook this morning that some people really do thrive on spreading controversy under the cloak of educating people. To me this is a load of rubbish, its the same as when governments tell us how big a threat this thing or that thing is instead of trying to educate the population.

For me I’m trying to look at the good things of life. I don’t want to go around telling everyone to be positive because it’s something people do need to learn themselves. I’ve noticed that if you try and throw something down someones throat they’re more then likely reject it. So I just try and look at the good of life and I must say I feel better in myself for thinking that way. My family have a lot of stress and anxiety around us at the moment (I’m not willing to go into details) and I am feeling it but I’m not letting it get to me like it use to. I don’t like being negative, I don’t like how it makes me feel.

 

Sorry, thats a bit of a rant but sometimes it has to come out.

 

Have a good Sunday everyone 🙂

A Quick Update

There’s not a lot to tell at the moment, If I’m totally honest I’ve done very little. Nine Hearts though is all but done and I’m  just gearing up the courage to send it off to a few of the magazines out there. Aside from that I’ve done very little over the last week as I’ve had a little upheaval in my personal life but I’m looking to get back in the flow again over the next couple of days. I need to collect my thoughts and get back working again, I’ve got lots of words to write and I’m eager to get writing.

I Don’t Care

I don’t care, I’m not bothered, I don’t give a f*ck. All of those imply the same thing, the same mentality that humanity seems to be adopting at an accelerating pace. I’ve met a fair few people who say they ‘Call it as it is’ and I think I’ve only met two or three people who did so without being nasty or bitter in their honesty. Most people seem to think its a way of being nasty and getting away with it.

About two years ago I had a car crash (my fault) I had a break up around the same time and a few friendships ended. I was in a dark place and for a while I was close to becoming a ‘I don’t care’ person. That is and never will be me though, I DO CARE. I care about my family, my friends. My Girlfriend Tracie, who I love dearly. I care about my job, I care about my writing. I care about A lot of people and things and that to me is part of who I am.

I can understand people who have been hurt by life and have taken this attitude but I wonder how many people truly do not care in the way they say they do. I’d say there are few people out there who claim to not care but who actually care a lot but it’s part of our culture today. ‘I don’t care’ is part of our vocabulary. I’ll admit I say it, but when I do I normally only say it when talking to Tracie and she knows that something is wrong because she knows how much I hate that mentality.

I do care. I try my best not to say something that could offend, which I do fail sometimes but I’ll always try and put it right.

The less humanity cares, the quicker humanity dies.

It Wasn’t Me!

Something that I often think about is in our world it is very rare that someone will hold their hands up and take the blame for when they have made a mistake or done wrong. When I started work full time I quickly learnt that if I make a mistake then it was better to hold my hands up for the error rather then try to hide it or pass the blame onto someone else. In my experience its better to own up to a mistake because if you pass the blame or try to hide it and are found out then you will be in more trouble.
I’m not saying to take the blame when you are not at fault, but when you do make a mistake, own up. It drives me crazy when people try to pass the blame onto others. A good example is after a car crash, the person who is at fault will often get out and scream at the other driver to intimidate them and maybe make them admit to the accident being their fault.
Should I be surprised that the world Is like this? No, not at all. Everyone from the heads of state down to people who can’t be bothered to do anything other then get out of bed lie their way out of trouble.
Even with silly things like tripping over a cable that is in your way, or bumping into someone when you’re sending a text message. How about we pay more attention to our surroundings and we look out for ourselves. We take responsibility for ourselves.
I’d like to think that one day this culture will end and a little more honesty will come through, I’m not holding my breath though.
I hope I don’t sound like I’m preaching here, I am far from perfect but I try my best to learn from my mistakes and not repeat them. When I do make a mistake I will own up to it, I don’t pass the blame onto anyone else. That’s not me, I won’t say it has never been but its not me now.
Take responsibility for yourselves.

Okay rant over 🙂
