Things in life go wrong all the time, it is inevitable. Failure and disappointment in life is guaranteed. Pain and discomfort are part of life. These things can not be avoided. The best way to lead a happy life is to be able to deal with them gracefully. It seems to me that people try … Continue reading Stress & Mental Stamina
My 5 regular readers will know that 2022 was the year of my 50th birthday, and that I had my “50 Year Plan”. Which, looking back at it, I think was pretty damn successful! Using my social media posts as a reminder, a 2022 Recap: I took my military fit test in January and did … Continue reading 2022: My Big Year!
OR "Stupid People Aren't Smart Enough to Know They're Stupid" Recently, in my home town, there was an event that grabbed attention all over the world: the trucker “Freedom Rally”. Like so many topics now-a-days, it was an extremely polarizing event. Everyone had/has an opinion on the trucker protests, and many other topics, and it … Continue reading Critical Thinking & Dunning-Kruger
My last post was about fear being a bad thing, and there are many situations where that is absolutely true; but there are also many situations where fear can be a good thing. I mentioned in my last post that “Any time I feel myself getting angry or scared of something I try to stop … Continue reading Fear: A Superpower?

Over the holidays we had a big Doctor Who marathon, mostly cherry picking our favourite episodes, until we hit the most recent stuff. Our personal favourite Doctor is Matt … Continue reading Overthinking It: Doctor Who – Amy & Rory
Well, the year is done, and the inevitable “Year in Review”, and “New Year, New You” posts are coming. I have a blog (that I occasionally write in), so I figured I would jump in and contribute. A bit over a year ago, I was in a rough place. Thanks to COVID I had been … Continue reading Oh Look!! Another “Year In Review” Blog!!
I spend way, way, WAY too much time on my phone, doing pointless things. It frustrates me greatly. I know that I should spend less time on it than I do, but somehow I always end up picking up my phone and staring at social media. My phone. (Kingsman is an AMAZING movie!) I’m not … Continue reading My Phone is Not my Friend.
While I was in Borden for my training, Zack Snyder's Justice League was released for streaming. Being in Borden and not having access to a decent tv set up, I had to wait several months to view it. Four hours is a bit of a haul for a movie, but to me it didn't feel … Continue reading Feminism, Sexism, & Blurry Lines
I love a good, thought provoking quote. I look for quotes everywhere, and have found many. (The Word document that I keep them all in is 26 pages, and always getting longer.) I find most on a couple of Instagram pages I follow dedicated to Stoics, and thinkers in general; but I’ve found good quotes … Continue reading The Meaning of Life.
