The inner critic – an interesting twist

Acceptance / bullying / Meaning of life and that stuff / Mindfulness / Self acceptance

No doubt you will know what I mean when I talk about my inner critic. It is that ever present voice in my head that tells me I should … do better say or not say something lose weight and exercise more work harder achieve more be happier help others more and so forth I am aware of my inner critic some of the time and at other times it has full rein. This is […]

Dreams

I don’t usually write about my dreams as they can be pretty weird, as they are with most people I imagine. Last night I had a dream that hasn’t occurred for several years. I dreamed I had (secretly) buried a dead body (some time ago) and it was about to be discovered. I was extremely anxious and dreading being found out. I wondered what this dream theme symbolises so I did a google search. It […]

Acceptance / beautiful / creativity / lucid dreaming

I have written few posts recently about a book about being in the flow. I have finished reading it now but I have noticed my dreams are being more lucid – meaning that I know that I am dreaming and can actually direct what happens in my dreams. It is a wonderful experience that has happened to me a few times in the past. It is not something I can manufacture. I suspect that the […]

Baby Boomers / Dreams / encore careers / internet / Meaning of life and that stuff / Self acceptance / social responsibility / Wisdom

I want to point out to the world that people over 50 have a lot to offer. I want to point this out to all age groups but especially to people who are past 50 or thereabouts. I get tired of hearing people talk about retirement. Retirement belongs to the previous generations – our parents and their parents (if they lived long enough). I am not suggesting that we keep working at a job we […]

Baby Boomers / creativity / Meaning of life and that stuff / social responsibility

For some time now I have been thinking about taking some sort of action in relation to raising awareness about the ageing of Baby Boomers and the need for attitudes (in general) to change. We can look at the ageing population as a burden on the government/community or we can look more positively at this cohort of people and somehow leverage off their knowledge, skills, experience and understanding for the betterment of our society. I […]

A recent Daily Post Prompt asked, “What kind of sleeper are you? Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed, or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream?” So, what kind of sleeper am I? NOT GOOD! I am nearing the end of Week 1 of a four-week trial in using some really interesting equipment to help me to sleep better at night. Teddy offered to model the […]

Dreams / funny / technology / You must be kidding?

Today, or I should say, tonight, I am having a sleep study. I am not a good sleeper and have been known to SNORE (so I am told :-)) THRASH about and GASP in my sleep. I am required to go to Sleep and Snore Solutions and get wired up (see below) and then go home and sleep!  I return to get unwired tomorrow. Should be interesting 🙂 O sleep, O gentle sleep, nature’s soft […]
