first anniversary of my blog

26 Oct

London
Got a reminder from wordpress saying today is one year since I first wrote a post here.

I never knew there is a world of other bloggers still blogging away and who find blogging more attractive than twittering, or face booking. It is nice to know there are others who like that too.

I find blogging makes me more contemplative and think things through, rather than just type in some quick response and twitter it.

Sometimes, when you wait a bit to response, events unfold and it makes your first reaction seem inappropriate… it makes u pause next time before doing a knee jerk reaction.

Also growing older makes me less obsessive about things. It does not seem to matter whether I am right or not so I don’t impose my views on another. As long as what I do is right for me at that time, that is all.

Life is rather nice, but then I think I am rather fortunate that nice things happen to me. Whether it is because my soul makes it so, which is what I believe because I believe that what happens is what u call for whether consciously or unconsciously.

Thus, I tend to view anything that happens to me as something that is what I want to experience. I may not know why, or how such an experience is going to do me good, but I firmly believe that it will. Even the negative things can be helpful, if nothing else makes me know what I don’t want. Haha.

I met a chap in the Italian festival recently , and we got to chatting about our lives. During the course of it I said I am glad that we got the nhs . He replied it may let me down. Just look at all that long waiting list for operations. I said I don’t mind, really, sometimes it is quite good to wait, and it may be the problem solves itself and you don’t need that operation. Or they find a non intervention procedure that will be just as good without having to cut up and sew up things. He was not convinced. And that I find is quite the way most people think.
My view that if the nhs is unable to cure me, or something happens and I die, well that would save me from a long lingering and painful illness, wouldn’t it? And that would be good thing as far as I am concerned.

But he was not convinced. Haha. Most people would hold the same views as him. Am I the only one who thinks different?

Ah well, perhaps it is why I am not concerned about having private health insurance or lots of money to pay for expensive medical treatments. My view is if I have a lot of money I will be tempted to take those expensive medical treatments which may not really cure me just give me 6months or 1yr more , with a lot of pain maybe, and I don’t fancy that at all. So if I have no money there is no dilemma, having to decide whether to take the treatment or not. That can be quite a relief you know.

I have noticed that if u don’t have the money, the decision is out of your hands, and it is quite a relief. It gives me real peace of mind to know that whatever happens let it happen , no need to move heaven and earth trying to find a cure and desperately trying to stay alive, just for the sake of it, never mind what the quality of the life is like.

But I am getting morbid, so lets change the subject.

Just this, Good health (and I mean both physical and mental health) is the most important thing to have. Nothing else matters, not wealth, or friends, or lovers, or family, or possessions or status, or fame, etc.

And having good health is not a passive thing, which u just let happen, without doing anything about it. You can consciously live a healthy livestyle and have happy way of thoughts and happy attitude to what is happening in the world.

I read of others’ lives here who are blogging in wordpress, and sometimes it can seem a lot of people are having problems. It may be that happy people don’t really write much as there is nothing to say if u are happy haha. But when bad things happen to you there is plenty to say. So it stands to reason that we hear a lot of bad things.

It is why the news is always bad. Haha. Good news is rare to find nowadays.

And if we don’t have bad news happening, we make it up, like the coming forecast of the worst storm since 1987, which is forecast to happen this Monday night. So the newspapers are already making it up and anticipating it. As if bad news that is actually happening now is not enough. Lol.
