Oh come on, I know not getting stressed to begin with is the best way to handle stress. it’s just not happening for me. What does work- and like a charm too- is stress cleaning. Whenever I go down that rabbit hole of stressful thoughts or beurocratic mess I need to handle, I feel an …

“Go get a cold shower!”

I already told you a long time ago, that come spring, I brace myself and start showering with cold water. Now- hold the clapping- summers are H O T where I live, spring is almost non-existent -sadly- and we do have solar panels on our roof, meaning from April-November we don’t use the electric water …

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 it’s 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 …

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 …

“I’ll start saving when I have serious money”.

*Before I start- the disclaimer thing- I am not a financial expert, banker, or related in any way to Elon Musk. I have done my research-go do yours. Your money should matter to you- because it is the key to your financial freedom-AKA- your freedom. If you happen to be one of those unicorns and …

“Organized people always make their beds first thing in the morning!” Well sure- I know that. But why?? I mean- Your’e going to mess it up again come evening, and assuming no one (such as, for instance- you mother in law) is coming for a (thorough) visit -and you don’t mind – Then why not …

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 spent dealing with disappointments – I believe I found the middle road: I simply have no expectations.

Were our grandmothers right?

My grandmother was something. She could make people squirm with her casual cross-examinations, and always- always -always- had the upper hand, in every discussion. I used to tell everybody at work that she was my mentor when it came to interrogating people on the witness stand. I loved her with all my heart. She also …
