No one owes me anything!

I am a very judgmental person. Not only towards myself- which would have made it difficult for me yet quite a relief for others- I criticize everyone and everything. Most often- I would lay my harsh judgment on someone or other- only to realize moments later, that I am guilty of the same behavior. So …

“What a genius!” (really??)

As it happens- across the street from my house, there is a kindergarten. Before you go all “awww-they are soooo sweeeeet, those little innocent faces !” , well, not exactly. I mean- they are 5-6 YO -not the actually innocent 0-3, and some of them can start the revolution today, so to speak. The thing …

My sudden FITBIT popularity. (???)

I already told you I own a Fitbit Inspire 2 watch, and I use it to track my workouts and get much needed moral support and slacking tracking. Here is link to my previous post: Fitbit Inspire2 : was it worth buying? I also told you a long time ago that I am a class A …

My favourite Whatsapp button.

First, I want to thank the Whatsapp inventors , because for me, as a class A introvert, the fact that I don’t actually have to speak with people- is such a treat. I do 90% of my (almost non-existent ) daily communications -through Whatsapp- and prefer short , distant texts to “warm and heartfelt “phone …

When you look too closely.

“Take a good look!” “Inspect things closely!” You hear these often, don’t you? Well, I’m here to say that after almost 53 years on this planet, many times its best not to look too closely. “Why is that?” you might ask. “Who cares?” you might think. It is my belief that you should care- and …

Why perseverance is the only trait you’ll need.

“90% of life is just showing up” (Allen, Woody). I’ve been thinking a lot about life, (early retirement, etc), and what a mature person such as I can pass on as a wise old lady’s sayings. relatively old. in my opinion, I am very young and immature, but my kids seem to think I passed …

I wish people would stop saying these things.

If you are in the mood for a happy sunshine and flowers post- Well this ain’t the post for you. I decided its high time I say it- Some people say things that are simply annoying-and I’m not talking about the obviously atrocious racist chauvinistic things that are to be condemned in every way and …

The lessons I learned from a cat…

All my life, I avoided cats. Simply had nothing to do with them. I was sure I was a dog person- and I was also sure that this is an either/ or situation. Cats do have that distancing spoiled self sureness about them- they always look as if they are doing you a favor by …

“You learn something from everything”- is that so?

Lately, I’ve been experiencing a wave of impatience towards everyone. and everything. Personally, I tend to blame Covid -19, though let’s face it- I don’t go out much anyway and have a zero tendency to get close to people. Maybe it’s the age issue- I tend to blame everything bad I do on my age:”what …

How I became an optimistic pessimist.

“An oxymoron (usual plural oxymorons, more rarely oxymora) is a rhetorical device that uses an ostensible self-contradiction to illustrate a rhetorical point or to reveal a paradox.” (Wikipedia) After many years of focusing on developing expectations- followed by an equal amount of years sent dealing with the disappointments – I believe I found the middle road: I simply have no expectations. Actually- that’s not …
