A FITTING PLEA TO FORTY + YR OLDS (in reality ... there's value in sharing it with everyone really)

PART 1      "PAUSE FOR THOUGHT"

How many of us, as parents, can reflect on our childhood and wish, as we watch our own "kids" grow up, that "things were as they were then"?

We've all read those "blogs" as we call them now, about how we were more creative without all this new technology - how we used to go round and play in woods, build dens and go karts and all that instead of "sitting in front of a PC playing games" etc. Many of us have smiled at the memories and grunted in agreement at the observations, but in most cases we've probably done sweet FA about it!!

Even as adults, many of us (especially 35 to 50 yr olds) are now obsessed with with modern forms of communication - Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Emails, Mobiles, Tablets, - the list goes on...
The unfortunate aspect of all this is that as our society changes there is a real danger that we are becoming
more isolated, physically, as we immerse ourselves into conversations with "we don't know who" exactly, especially if you are posting on Facebook to your 100's of friends ... I'm doing that RIGHT NOW! and I don't know who is going to read it, especially if it's shared to further circles of friends (which I hope you will in this case!!)

How do YOU feel, at the end of a non-working day if you've been on your own, not doing much?
Lethargic? Bored? Feel like you've wasted a day of your life?
Compare that to a day where you've been out with family, friends, or a group of "like-minded" individuals, visiting somewhere, following some sort of pastime or hobby, learning something new?
Inspired? Happy? Enthusiastic? Fullfilled? "Cream crackered" even!!

I'm going to, in a series of "blogs", run through some thought provoking ideas - inspired by recent events that, even as I write this - are changing the course of my future direction... and hopefully the futures of many around me.. for the better.

Make a note of this date, 20th September 2014. Its a Saturday, and it's the first day of something new - something exciting - something that might put us on the road to "change for the better" over the following 3 months.

INTRIGUED??  Look out for my next "Blog" entitled "DISCOVERY", in the lead up to this date where I share my journey from the beginning of the year to this point.

To give you a hint, it's a bit like the old Remington Steel Advert on the telly where the guy says;
"I liked the product so much ... I bought the company!"

"Like" and by all means "Share" this if I've grabbed your attention and thank you for reading.

WORLD BALANCE

Who, out there, wants to live in harmony with the natural world?

Who, out there, wants to see everyone live in harmony with each other?

Fairly simple questions which, I would have thought most people would answer with a resounding "I do"

But whose prepared to do SOMETHING to demonstrate they agree with the above?

Nothing too elaborate or time consuming, but a show of interest, concern and support.

Now here's the real testing question

Whose prepared to make NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS in their lives to achieve any degree of success in the first 2 questions?

I've no doubt that, like me, most would answer "what can we do that could possibly make a difference?" Well, very little I guess, individually. But in our masses, that could be a whole different ball game.

ALL I WANT TO DO AT THE MOMENT IS TO SEE JUST HOW MANY OF YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY ...FOLLOW ME ON THIS BLOG IF YOU DO ... LETS JUST SEE HOW POWERFUL THE INTERNET REALLY IS.

If a Scottish lady can drum up millions of hits from having a quirky personality and a good singing voice ... then why can't we?

I will add items of interest that will raise the awareness of "THE BIGGER PICTURE" as time goes on, in the meantime, feel free to get to know me from the links to the side.

Why am I doing this?

I CARE about the balance of how we live on this planet.

I want to INSPIRE as many people as possible into positive action, no matter who they are, where they are from, how old they are or what circumstances they live in.

I want to raise ENTHUSIASM in as many people as possible towards making this world a safer place for generations to come.

I know one thing for certain. ... If we bury our heads in the sand and "leave it to everyone else" then we will be the poorer for it.

Take a look at this for starters;

I look forward to you joining me.
