Would you download podcasts

with my rantings on? Give me a yay or nay!

So who has who wrapped around their pinkies?

I know the cat has me wrapped around his little kitty toe - but exactly how much do the humans get away with in this relationship?

So, we have 2 evil humans sometimes ganging up on a helpless kitty ( and sometimes it is me and Mr Genie against the Leprechaun. Mostly it is me and Kitty bitching at the Leprechaun.

On the other hand, we have a Leprechaun that gets away with way too much. He never has to explain why he comes home late after work. He doesn't always have to cook (and I distinctly remember him promising he would do that forever and ever). Kitty and I let him sleep on the bed...

Mr Genie on the other hand always gets away with everything. He just has to miaaw and mommy is there. He never gets a hiding - even though I know he is an evil little child.

I guess we all have a little bit of everyone wrapped around their pinkies - which really makes it nice :)

Comfort Zones

Human nature dictates that we settle into patterns. These patterns become a way of life for us and we like the comfort of being able to know what to expect - but what does it really mean.

Slipping into a comfortable pattern life means one thing only, you have stagnated in your life/relationships and you are basically in a rut.

Stepping out of our little comfort zones seems daunting and therefore we mostly prefer staying put.

I'm one of those people that loves the comfort of what my patterns bring. I appreciate knowing what to expect, but sometimes the daily patterns really irritate me.

I get up at 5am, get to work by 6 and work till 2, then go home and grab lunch before leaving for fitness activities by 4 and get home by 6, watch TV for the rest of the night and start the whole process over again. It sucks.

I've decided to do 1 thing a month that I would never have done before - should you not do the same?

The truth about life

... if you don't live it - you are wasting oxygen.

So anyway, after all the woohaaa has died down of the weddings and being pestered for wedding photos winter already has its icy clutches firmly embedded.

We are homebound... literally, we go to work, get back home and switch on the big gas heater. We eat dinner under blankets and go to bed early. Maybe it is just the house, maybe it is our age, but we definitely aren't living life 100%.

I definitely can't wait for summer!

In the meanwhile the FIFA Soccer World Cup is starting in the ext few days and the Bulls just won the Super 14.

I think I should do a post about stepping out of your comfort zone....

Different strokes for different folks

Surprise... I didn't forget about sharing some of my thoughts on the book!

Some people merrily go through life 'agnostically', others need a religion to hold onto and some just need to find themselves to find a spirit that will empower them. Meditation may for for you, but running around naked in nature for others.

It doesn't really matter in the end what helps you to get balanced (mentally) in your life - it only matters that you get there.

Unfortunately not everyone can afford the luxury to go away from home for months (or weeks) and stay at an ashram (or holiday resort, or...) but, you can always make a plan to take a break somewhere (even if its only for a weekend).
