Could You Cope with Life on Death Row?

They start to lose hope that they will ever be free from their emotional restraints and, when their end finally comes, I wonder if they will regret not opening the door to their cage and freeing themselves……?

Just try to imagine it; the last thing you think about before you go to sleep, the first thing you think about when you wake and every hour in between, is the fact that you are going to die. You could live like this for years before the day finally comes: worrying, imagining…..suffering unbearable mental torture. Trapped in a cage with no means of relief from the anxiety and stress gradually…..slowly losing all hope. Knowing that, when the final day comes, you will be filled with regret about the life that you led behind a prison’s walls.

To end up on death row you need to have committed a terrible crime but many people sentence themselves to a life like this. They are so worried about the future, about what may happen to them and how they might suffer that they are mentally imprisoned and suffering all the emotional torture of literal incarceration. They gradually retreat into themselves until their world grows smaller and smaller; until it’s the size of a prison cell. They start to lose hope that they will ever be free from their emotional restraints and, when their end finally comes, I wonder if they will regret not opening the door to their cage and freeing themselves……?

We are born – we die and the bit in between is called LIFE, don’t make it a sentence.

If You’re Having One of Those Days…

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling like I haven’t blinked for the last couple of hours and I’m more than a little weary. Assuming it’s not just me here’s just a few things that I hope will put a smile on your face and determination in your fingertips as we wait for our second wind in the middle of the blogging week ;O)

What Do Women Really Want?

Why do we try so hard to understand other people? At the end of the day, if we are really, truly honest, we want other people to be like us – we get us, we’ve spent time with us and we know how we tick, we’re comfortable with us…….

The question that has plagued men since the dawn of time and one which, apparently, has never been answered to anyone’s satisfaction. Maybe it’s because men and women are intrinsically different or could it be just that we are all individuals and we don’t have the first clue what motivates each other but it’s easier to divide us into 2 categories rather than 7.4 billion?

Why do we try so hard to understand other people? At the end of the day, if we are really, truly honest, we want other people to be like us – we get us, we’ve spent time with us and we know how we tick, we’re comfortable with us…….

SerenityWe want to change everyone else to be like us and that’s why so many relationships fail and why there is so much conflict in our every day lives. We don’t like people who disagree with us, we look for people who think in similar ways, who like the same things, who conform to our view of ‘normal’.

We spend so much time putting people into categories that we forget that we are all just people – amazing, wonderful, flawed. Perhaps if we took like and dislike out of our vocabularies and just accepted others for who they are without trying to understand them we’d all be a whole lot happier.

What do women want? Exactly the same thing as men and every other living this on this beautiful planet – to be free and to be happy ;O)

Flicking a Switch!

Imagine someone deposits $86,400 in your account. You can do with the money as you please. No questions asked. But at midnight, all the money you didn’t spend disappears, but you receive another $86.400.

I’ve never done a re-blog so God only knows if this will work or not but here goes – this post by Cristian Mihai is amazing – reading it was like a lightbulb going off in my head illuminating a thought that should always be at the front of my mind: Life is Bloody Short – LIVE IT! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did x

Imagine someone deposits $86,400 in your account. You can do with the money as you please. No questions asked. But at midnight, all the money you didn’t spend disappears, but you receive another $86.400. The thing about this mysterious deal is that you never know when you’ll stop receiving the money. So what do you […]
