The Variety of Life

I couldn’t think of a proper name for the post as there is not an actual theme for the photos. I took these photos over the last couple of days, and as usual, I Photoshopped the clouds using Auto-tone just to see how menacing they turned out.

I am impressed with how well the moon and Venus came out. I took that photo yesterday morning at 06:21

You Might Feel Worthless To One Person, But You Are Priceless To Another

As we slide inexorably into the future, we have the ability to adjust it, to slide the way we want, to change our direction. I have several favourite sayings, and one is “nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it”, and it will be. You can make it that way, and don’t worry about the people who try to put you down.

I created a post on Facebook the other day based on an article in The Big Issue, a paper sold by people who are looking to change their lives – “a hand up, not a hand out” is their slogan. This post said about our local Big Issue seller who I purchase the publication from him every week even if I am low on money myself. Over 100 people clicked like on it, and it was picked up by the local paper. However, not everybody was nice on there. Some people were being very derogatory about the vendor, even making things up. One said that he had been seen taking drugs in the local graveyard. He admitted that he did used to be drug dependent, but would only use in the privacy of his own home.

“No matter how good a person you are, there will always be someone criticizing you. It is sad how some people are so jealous and intimidated by you that they only have negative things to say when they know absolutely nothing about you”

Trifecta Week 103: That Wasn’t What I Meant

This week’s challenge is to write 33 words in addition to … and preceding … the words “That wasn’t what I meant”

I love going up and down, in and out. It exhausts you, makes you sweat, but the pleasure afterwards is magnificent. I could do it for days on end.

Rowing you dirty sod!

THAT wasn’t what I meant.
