Let’s Get Some Kind of Life!

Let’s get a life or something kinda like it !

 

Is this you, my friend  a bum extraordinaire?

 

Now, what do you do when you are – well, let’s face it, indeed a bum!  Or has indeed become a bum?   Contrary to the popular belief, being (or becoming) a bum is a highly complex and complicated position in life anyone ever has to take or accept.  While some seem to totally enjoy being a bum, having chosen that position over many other more viable ones, to most other bums, that position is actually forced on them.  It could be by sickness or other disabilities, by recession or lack of job opportunities, by the equally potent lack of knowledge and skills, and even by the lack of a good family upbringing.

English Communication Skills 101: The Thesaurus

A fact.

 

For starters, even the smartest guy in the world doesn’t have all the millions of words in the dictionary at his swift disposal. The academic and the well-read can have only upwards of 60,000-80,000 words in his vocabulary bank. Most function with just a few thousands.

Music For Life – Reasons Behind My Own Categories

Want to feel upbeat, inspired, peaceful or centered? Try music.

 

We need not dwell on the causes or the triggers, but our feelings can sometimes indeed run the whole gamut of human emotions and our thoughts can be such devils.  There just are days when we feel so run down that we find even the smallest of tasks too arduous to take.  At times we feel so uninspired that we even lose the energy to take care of the most basic personal hygiene.  Then our sleep debts pile up by the day, we can see total void looming in our horizons.  We find ourselves clutching at straws. We lose our sense of equilibrium.  There’s vehement unrest within us. We get chafed easily.  Our thinking becomes dislocated.  We look as distraught as we feel and think.

Why Who You Choose to be With Matters

You're only as good as the company you keep

 

As also often said, “Birds of the same feather flock together.”  If you are really serious about improving the quality of your life and your future prospects, you may indeed have to reassess what those people around you mean to you.  It may be high time you limited your interaction with some or stopped seeing them altogether.  It could even mean a change of home or company.  A university professor of mine had worked in a government office before shifting to teaching saying that the corruption in the office was just too much for him to bear.  It was all bound to take a firm hold on him too.  If he had stayed, he might have ended corrupt too.  He opted out, and his life was never as light, he said.  That has stuck with me.
