O is for Observations

Lessons that life teaches require far more than a classroom to be taught. The art of observation is one that is becoming lost as an increasing amount of platforms allow for every thought that a person has ever had to be posted for the world to see.

It is a lost art to learn from merely watching those around you. There are those that still spend hours simply watching people and learning from what they see. It is surprising how much you can learn about someone when you pay attention to there actions instead of just the words that come out of their mouth. It is possible that the words and actions do not always match and there are some that are hiding things from the world.

The reasons are numerous, and in some cases it can protect you to learn what they are hiding before you become involved with them. It is easy to take someone at their word when the other party involved is not to be found and sorting out the truth can take years. It is best to ensure that you are in a position to make accurate observations about the people and situations around you before making decisions that could change your life.

There are dozens of decisions that are made as a result of the way people present themselves. It is easy to allow emotions to overshadow your ability to make an informed decision in times of crisis. It is best to observe the body language and actions to see how they measure up to the words that come out of a person's mouth before allowing them to enter into your life on a permanent basis. Careful observation is what keeps you safe and should not be over rated.

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Saturday Evening Post

I was reading through this blog and noticed that there were somethings that I'd forgotten. It's amazing how time changes things without your even noticing at times.
