So Much Stuff

So much stuff ..  Have you ever noticed just how much stuff we all have ? How much of it we have and it seems to be in every room  because somewhere along the line we have been convinced we  ” need ”  it  so off we trot like good little sheep and we get it . We have rooms and garages full of all the stuff , some of us even have stuff in our cars it  is over the place so much . Look around your room now , go on  , just the room you are sitting in reading this now , how much ” stuff ”  is in the room that really you do not now and never did need , but it is there now and  you were so sure you needed it  . Advertising companies these days in my opinion  have no morals at all they will do anything to convince you that yes you need this or that  and you must rush out and get it right now as it is on special and you don’t want to miss that, if you miss it you might never get another chance at it and we can’t have that now can we  ?

Stuff ..just what is all this  “stuff ” I am talking about  ? This is all the things you see sitting around your room that you never even pick up much less use  half the time you don’t even look at it  , it just sits there gathering dust . Dusting is the only reason some of it even gets moved at all otherwise it just sits there and does nothing and you don’t ever use it so why did we get it in the first place  ? Advertising that’s why all those adds convincing us we need it for our lives to be complete  and to make our houses look so much better than it did before , what a load of codswallop ….sheeesh   Most of us  now realise that we  only bought it on a spur of the moment thing because the adverts got to us but that does not change the fact that out houses are now full of stuff we do not need now and never even needed in the first place.

Stuff  so what exactly is this stuff we have collected that we realise now we maybe should have left where it was …..and no before you say it  I do not mean husbands ..lol …I mean all those fancy  dinner dishes that now just sit in packages in case they get broken , all those named football souvenirs you have that do have practical use but you don’t want to use them in case they get broken .  There are also all those lovely throw rugs and nice clothes  you  have that you never use or wear  in case they get stained  or ripped or stolen or something , like all the other things we get  ” on special ”  because we have been convinced we needed it  and really we never did but that is advertising for you , convince all the sheep that they need these things and bob’s your uncle all gets sold. Not forgetting too all that very special jewelry  that they say we must have as it will make us feel so much better ,they play on our emotions and yes it works very well.

Stuff  so again how much stuff do you have  ? Being realistic  now if you suddenly decided to move maybe to another state or even another country  just how much of what you   have  would  you  be able to or even want to  take with you ? How much of it would you end up getting rid of that you finally see you wish you had never even got in the first place ? Having been in this position more than once  I know the answer and even now though I know better I still have a bit of stuff  I would gladly sell  to make things easier if we move again. Though I have very little  ” stuff  ” now there is still a bit , sometimes it is very hard to say no to yourself even though you know you should . Let’s face it even if we only moved down the road or over the road the impact of all this  “stuff” would be exactly  the same , it would still be a pest to move and would cost money .

So much stuff even the most astute of us seem to manage to get ” stuff ”  and sometimes we don’t even realise it as we have all been collecting this sort of thing for so long now it’s almost automatic now , see something , like it , buy it , even if you will never use it . Alright yes some of it does look good sitting around the place and yes it does look pretty and brightens up the place but let’s face it we do not really need it do we ? Learned this the hard way myself so now am very careful not to get anymore “stuff ” and just get things we can use all the time , after all it costs money to get all this stuff so we need to all be careful in this I think . So how much “stuff”  is in your place , how many rooms are there that have no stuff at all in them or has every room got some ? Are  you all too “stuffed ” to make an easy move or cut down the dusting time ?  lol  ask yourself..

 

If you try and don´t succeed, you have successfully not succeeded….

I like to walk backwards so I know where I have been….

Money talks mine is saying “Nah nah nah nah nah…you can’t catch me!”…

Want To Know Why ?

Want to know why …You pay so much for your food at the grocery shops ? Why that even though they do their level best to keep costs down still they go up ? Well I can tell you why and trust me no one even thinks of this or gives it a second thought , when you walk home or drive home tell me how many shopping trolleys do you see scattered around the foot paths ? Those trolleys that the supermarkets give you  to help you out , yes those ones, those ones we are not supposed to take out of the centers , those are the ones , those  are all over the place I counted 10 in just a short walk from our shopping centre  to home the other day , 10 in such a short walk . So many in 1 short walk so how many  are there in longer walks in other directions ? Makes you wonder just  how many are out there all told doesn’t it ? Or are you 1 of the many, many people who just don’t care  who say it’s not  my problem? It is your problem and you need to wake up and see that it is .

Want to know why ? It is because it is your problem it is  yours to care about , because those trolleys  do not get back to the supermarkets all by themselves  , they cannot just drive themselves home from the place they were dumped . Trolleys left all over the place have to be picked up by utes , yes special people whos whole  job is just to drive around all over the place picking up all those trolleys that people stole from the shopping centers . Everytime a trolley is stolen  it costs $$ to go collect them why do you think we have whole packs of men who only have 1 job and that is to drive round collecting them , think about it these men have to be paid and the petrol they use has to be paid for  . People who take the trolleys away from the shopping centers should be fined they should be made to pay the bills for collecting them again , let’s face it there would soon be no trolleys left for the honest ones to use if no one went to pick them up now would there?

Want to know why  ? We  know why but we just do not want to be bothered and we just shrug it off as someone else’s problem and say to ourselves ” she’ll be right mate ”  but no it won’t be , it will only get worse   the more people ignore even these so called small things   the more trouble then starts to build up . We all need to try and stop this as the longer it goes on the worse it gets and the costs are passed on to the honest people  more and more meaning that they can buy less because the prices are getting out of control just because we shrug it all off . While we do nothing the prices creep up as petrol goes up $$ per hour to workers creeps up  so it gets more and more expensive to retrieve the trolleys the unscrupulous  people think it is their right to just take  when they feel like it .

Want to know why .. It is because the people of today are so self centered that they refuse to try and help anyone else now , and even those that try to help get ridiculed so  how is this sort of behaviour  going to help anyone ? Just the other night we were having dinner out at our local and in the short time we sat there having dinner I saw loads of people wandering about the street outside with trolleys , everyone of them had them full of who knows what but the point is there , right there was proof of what I am saying  and why I chose to highlight  this problem . This is a problem not only here but worldwide , the  UK has the right idea they make you pay a gold coin  to use the trolley ,which you then get back when you return the trolley , that has cut it down a lot , we should do the same .

Want to know why … Now  you do and the more we ignore it the more it will get worse till someone  does something about it , mind you I am not holding my breath  as things that need doing rarely get done when they need to be it is usually  a long time after before they get fixed . Even problems like this , even though they add to the last thing we need it adding to , to the food bill unless they fix it the food will keep on creeping up in price and  it only because some people think they are above the law and can do what they like .

 

I have completely mastered the right way to do everything wrong…

I am always up for a challenge whenever the sign says push I pull….

Fake News

Fake news  today it is everywhere  we have never  ever been so inundated  with it  and until the Trump election campaign started and all the haters came out we had barely even heard of it . Everyday now in almost all media  you can find people screaming that this is fake news and that is fake news  makes you very wary of everything you see or hear now you just cannot take anything for granted anymore . Whatever we perceived as news giving media  always being correct  has now been dealt a death blow, because now we have to question everything we hear or see and even though we used to believe everything the then media told us we can no longer do that . I for one cannot remember the last day I looked at the news media  and did not see a lot of articles  marked  Fake  news  almost everyday there are several .How did it come to this  ? Let me explain in the next few  chapters and maybe you will understand too .

Fake news was started by unscrupulous people who did not want the real truth to get out , so they started making up stories and saying they were truth , then just sat back and waited for someone to say ” hey wait a minute ” and then prove the story wrong . These fake stories gradually got more and more ridiculous  and there were more and more of them and more and more people started  noticing them and you guessed it , it took no time at all before the real true stories were also being screamed at as fake news. Therefore  job done so much fake news has hidden the real news now nobody knows the real truth anymore at all , the only way to find out the truth is to research  then you will know  what is and isn’t  right . Too many people though these days are either too lazy or just too busy to look for the truth so either ignore all news  or believe what they are told to believe , way too many do this unfortunately .

Fake news so why ? Who did it benefit ? This was all orchestrated  by a few very very rich individuals  who wanted certain things to happen in the way they wanted  to make sure they stayed in control of all things , if not all things but most of them they want to rule the world  and so far are doing just that . These few will be running things for as long as they can  thinking they run the world   so should be able to do whatever they like whenever they want to  and yes it will work for a time but not forever. They have now gotten so used to having control that almost nothing will stop them , the power has gone to their heads and controls them totally , short of death  they will never ever stop  wanting to rule the world and they do not even see the wrong of it , not do they want to .

Fake  news  started by a corrupt few that  want to rule as  I said , so how do we stop them  ? Is there a way to stop them  ? Sadly no there is no way  as this fake news that has taken over almost everything makes it just too hard sometimes to find the real news and they know that , and also know that people are too lazy or busy to check for  themselves  and  I see no real way of stopping them , love him or hate him Trump is trying to stop a lot of it but it has taken over the world so much even a man as powerful as him has got little or no hope of stopping it any time soon. Sadly too even us over here have been overtaken by the fake news syndrome  it took awhile but it got here and even we have to question all we are told by the news media . Thinking we were too far away from all that a lot of people just let it go over their heads but now they too need to wake up and see  that it is here as well and we ignore it at our own peril  as someone once said.

Fake news has now made a lot of people very , very rich  and has put them in positions  they never would have been able to achieve  without it , but now boy do they love it as do all the people who started it , they love it for all the money it makes them . Fake news now affects us all and we need to be more vigilant than ever in checking out what is right and what is fake if we do not we can also get caught up  in all the mess that goes with it . People in general tend to just  let this sort of thing go right over their heads  but we can only do this for a while , if we do not start being more efficient  in checking things we could find ourselves in a lot of trouble. Fake news is so bad now and causes so much trouble world wide which is why I decided to write this , in the hope that some of us will start to care a little and try even a little bit to do what is right , it is all up to us now , it is up to us to act or not to act and hope we will be ok , I just trust God  and he has never let me down yet .

True love doesn’t care about the look or size of your wallet, it’s what’s inside that counts.

Thinking is not for everyone. Please think responsibly…..

Taught Too Well

Taught too well  … Lol have you ever noticed some people and animals learn things too well sometimes  ? They learn something and  after a while you think that it is only a matter of time before they forget it and you will have  to teach them all over again . There are somethings though , that no matter what seem to stay  , like with some  animals they learn to say pee in the house and no matter how often you  try to train them they just do not get it ,  so you have to go on training  and hoping  they will finally get it. Husbands are like that too lol trust me on this , you try over and over again  to get them to do something  the way it should  be done but they keep getting it wrong , sheeesh men huh ? Like with  the animals they just don’t seem to get some things , and try as you might , apart from kicking them up the bum  they  just do not get it …

Then again there are things that they get all too well , with husbands it will be sayings , things they pick up from you over the years and when you say something  they will come up with a smart answer , lol, one they got from you !!  Now this is just not on , using  your own sayings against you !! No this is against all the rules  and must be stopped , they are your sayings lol they are not supposed to be used against you !! Then there will be  the times , usually when you are out together he will come out with one of your sayings before  you can  !! This too is just not on , this has got to be stopped !! Somehow we have to find a way  to make these naughty men  stop doing this , they have to find their own  sayings , they are not allowed  to use yours against you !! #spoilsports

Men love being spoilsports  that much is true , but when it is the man you married  it is very , very hard not to want to kick them up the bum , as  I said before , but if the remark comes from another man it is just tolerable  but not from your own hubby sheesh nope no way no how …It is time to start working on this problem before it gets anymore out of hand , just because they have  learned too well when you taught them is no excuse , they have to learn to find their own , if we can do it  so can they all they need is try , and yes I know this bit is hard , lol, but they need to think!! They can if  they try  we all know that but they just don’t even try and they have to start now  before it is too late . Bad enough that they often finish sentences for you  and they do that all too often the  spoilsports  but to then use your sayings against you that is taking it all way , way to far and needs to be stopped  or else ..lol .

Making them behave is the hard part , I think we have to start  blackmailing them , this won’t be too hard because  there are just so many ways that can be done it is not funny , so I think we all have to team together and start to teach these spoilsports how to behave , lol it should be fun , trust me doing things like that to men is too funny sometimes lol. I mean have you ever seen a man when you get in first ? They get all upset at you lol funny it is ok when they do it to you but  if you do it back to them boy do they get upset , so much so it is very funny to watch , lol then of course they have to get even with you don’t they ? lol Never happen  because we women are smarter than that and  think ahead  and plan ahead  and men do not seem to have got this part yet , cannot see that they ever will either the way they are going , lol, typical huh ?

Taught too well ..yep some men are and they need to stop  doing  the smarty  things and start being the good boys we all thought they were when we married them , or else lol , they will be treated worse than the animals  because we all know animals  don’t think  they just do a few things and that is about it . Men though do have the ability to think but they just do not want to for some reason , and so find it easier to use those taught too well sayings  than to try and think for themselves, lol lazy sods huh ? Men love em or not we can think  and hope that maybe  one day  they might just learn not to be too  smart and things will all get better for all of us ..

 

The man who says it can’t be done should not interrupt me when I’m doing it!..

I know I’m around here somewhere. I just saw myself a minute ago….

I’m going out to look for myself, if you see me before I return, please tell myself to call me so I know where I am.

Say It Everyday

Say it everyday ….Say what ? Say you love someone , say you need someone , tell the person or people  you love  how much you love them  all the time everyday if you can as we never know when it will be too late . How long does it take for things to go wrong in your life  ? I can tell it takes about 5 mins.  that is all the time it takes for your whole world to crash around your feet , that is how long it takes for the world as you know it becomes a great big mess . Probably  and it is quite often the case it is because of nothing you have said or not said, done or not done , it has happened through circumstances you had no control over  but you now have to deal  with the fall out . Dealing with the fallout for something like this may be 1 of the hardest things you might ever have to do , but deal with it you have to if you want to keep living some kind of normal life .

Say it everyday , if you say it to someone who has just had their life pulled out from under them  it can make all the difference to them , it can help them absorb the shock as they try to take stock and work out what else to do from this point. Everything they knew and did from here on has to be changed , and unless it happens to you , you have no idea how hard this is , how hard it is to rearrange  your whole life . Now you have to sit down and think about every single thing you have done previously  and work out if you can still do it at all, or maybe only now and then , having to go through all you have done so far in day to day life  then rethink it all is nothing  if not very hard to do . I would say it was impossible but it is not , you can do it with support  and if you have enough people on your side who will say it is ok I love you , it will be alright .

Say it everyday  because just that small act of telling someone they really mean something to you is such a small thing to you but can mean the very world to them and can help them as they restructure their lives , trust me as we are going through  this right now ourselves  it sure helps when we get someone showing support . Taking the time  to tell someone who is going through hard times takes only a few mins for you but it can mean the world to them , and helps to fight off depression  which at times like this really rears it’s ugly head no matter how  strong you think people are , things like this can make the strongest person feel weak.  Someone you have always looked at and always thought of as strong might just not be as strong as you think , usually someone who has been strong for years has had a lot of things in their life to make them strong . All it takes though is just that 1 more thing  , just that 1 thing too many to bring even the strongest  person down , they have been so strong for so long that  they just cannot keep going  without  some sort of help but they are usually the last to ever ask for it.

Say it everyday  as someday sometime somehow it may happen to you and you then would like to know that someone cares , that someone has taken time out of their own busy lives to tell you they care , that makes someone going through it feel so much better it is worth doing , and if it was happening to you , you too would love to hear it .  My ardent prayer is that no one  goes through something like this , but if they do my other prayer is that there will always be someone near them to tell them they are loved, to tell them they are cared about , you may not be able to help with money , or with another job or whatever  but just being there for them makes all the difference . Making someone who is going through hard times feel cared about  is something  I think we all should try to do , as by doing it , it does the world of good for someone  else.  Say it everyday to those around you , get used to doing it and  remember it helps them , but not only you but those you say it to and that to me is the best feeling you can get , just by saying a few words of comfort , it takes so little time to do ..
