How I stopped complaining.

I don’t particularly like complaining. Doesn’t necessarily mean I don’t do it- but I don’t enjoy it. I decided on my 50th birthday that I am not about to spend the next 50 or so years , going on and on about things . Either I can change the situation-or I can’t- either way- what’s …

Running errands as an introvert!

A few days ago, I was talking to my good friend (we go back more than 25 years of blood sweat &tears at work, and kept our friendship through retirement), and she has this thing where she insists on talking with me when she runs errands around town.   The thing is, she gets really worked …

“Tell me lies, sweet little white lies”. (not Mac, Fleetwood).

white lie: (Merriam Webster) Definition of white lie : a lie about a small or unimportant matter that someone tells to avoid hurting another person.example:”He told a (little) white lie as his excuse for missing the party”. A few days ago I heard a Fleetwood mac song I didn’t know , so it’s only fair that I should keep …

Take care of yourself. the rest will follow.

This morning I woke up, and it was chilly, and the mere thought of going out for a run was giving me the shivers. I got up and made myself a cup of strong coffee, filled my hot water bottle and got back to bed to contemplate my next steps. Now I know you may …

The introvert’s best friends.

I live in a rural village. Pastoral.  Rustic. Serene. well-not exactly. I am surrounded by neighbors that aren’t exactly big fans of peace and quiet. While I seem to have an acute problem with noise.  I am fully aware that they are the “normal people”‘ I am the problematic one +that I sound like an …

Does changing your mind=failure??

So, I’ve had this “math fantasy” for a long time. There you go- Just when you thought you’ve heard every strange fantasy, comes a strange new one and opens your perspective. The thing is, when I were in high school, I liked the cleanliness of math equations. the fact that there was a clear cut …

Why I keep asking myself “why?”

When I was “somewhat of a boss” at work. I attended a management course at the university. They taught us all kinds of methods to engage workers in the work they are meant to do. The work they get paid to do. I know I sound old , but all the while I thought “why …

The day we had a power cut.

So a few weeks ago, all of a sudden, in the middle of the day, a super hot and humid day might I add, everything stopped. No lights, AC, computers, and the internet -shut down. Apparently, there was a fire close by, which caused our life to rewind to the ’50s in a split second. …

“Women despise frugal men”-is that so?

So,  I read an article, written by a psychology professor (no less) that claims women loath frugal men, and list them as non- attractive  partners.  Being a proud frugal +a true believer in seperate accounts as a base line for equality and feminism, I was surprised.   To be absolutely honest- the first thing a skeptic …

My 7th veganniversary: am I laying on a bed of roses??

People make life-changing decisions all the time. I’ve read “inspirational quotes” that are adamant that “the hardest part concerning these decisions is getting to the point of making them”-as in being aware of the fact that change is needed and what form that change will take.  Well. I can tell you that in my experience, …
