Laughter is good for the soul and sometimes, even though things don't make sense we can still get a good laugh out of it. For example,.. Yesterday I walked in to a room and just got the tail end of a joke. I had no idea what the joke was about, but because everyone was laughing so much, it just made me laugh too.

I have a dentist appointment at tooth hurty

What would the world be like if complaining was taboo? Complaining as in over stuff that we are reluctant to do anything about, or can't do anything about.

If the glass is half empty, and its late autumn - great! - scoll it! - and grab another.

If its half empty, at the end of spring, then its pessimistic sips for me....

According to the urban dictionary "Seira is a very sacred name n its only to be used only for the very beautiful and bright and the ones with the beautiful voice." So I take it you can sing very well?

I'm not really participating any further on this forum...I have reasons for that which I think is a fair call. I didn't choose the name I have based on any sort of standard definition or otherwise...I chose it because I liked it and it reminds me of optimism, honesty, resilience, relevance, up-beat nature, not taking things too seriously, mindfulness and thoughtfulness without being over the top smile . Thank you for asking, but no!

I'm prepared to make a few exceptions to not being around, however not many. Very significant weather periods being one of them.

That is one very good reason to have such a fabulous name. Although it would be great to have you singing as well

Why I chose my name really has nothing to do with this forum, and kind of hints the like. See my signature for more information!

Have you seen the amazing roll clouds of the North? I lived in the tropics for a few years and the storms were absolutely awsome. I loved the build up season.

Hi Seira.

I like the following quote from Martin Luther King Jnr.. It is akin to the quote you mentioned above.
Quote:
“Power properly understood is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. It is the strength required to bring about social, political and economic change. … What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.


Cheers, Duck.

A sure way on the road to peace (both intrapersonal and interpersonal) is to have an empathetic conversation with those we don't get along with very well...rather than with those we do. This doesn't mean go out of way to have such conversations, but if there is a thorn in our sides about it, a dialogue to resolve issues might be a reasonable idea smile .

If people really want peace, rather than just saying it, we'll take reasonable steps to achieve it, to whatever degree, on whatever timescale. It would likely require some effort and willingness. And a willingness to acknowledge mistakes will be made smile .

No matter who we are, it has been said we need to treat others as we would like to be treated, without labels. An empathetic conversation I had with a really angry and pissed off stranger a couple of days ago reinforced that much.

Hi duckweather smile ,

My understanding and gut tell me each and every word in the English dictionary has its own intrinsic meaning. This cannot necessarily be articulated -- it has to "click" for us, in our own way smile .

I think, more than anything...we need to be in touch with ourselves and be aware-enough to remind ourselves on a regular basis that our health and well-being is more important to us than that of any external factor.

Hi Seira.

Interpretation of many words varies and can change with each generation and/or personal perspectives. Times change, language evolves and with the blending of cultures by degrees the meaning of words can alter or have multiple meanings. Words, by association to events or experiences, can also have a different meaning for one or more people.

Being self aware and maintaining a base-line for what we allow to affect us is the ideal. Unfortunately, though we may aim to maintain this stasis, external factors can sometimes upset that preferred balance and way of being. An empathic individual, for example, may face constant battle mentally and emotionally as they try to shield themselves from external happenings.

I hope that made sense wink I had a similar discussion with someone yesterday and my words here may be related to that too.

Cheers, Duck.
