I always tell people that I became a writer not because I went to school but because my mother took me to the library. I wanted to become a writer so I could see my name in the card catalog.

Diets, like clothes, should be tailored to you.

I Have Felt It a While Now

I am getting a bit fat again, not like last time but a bit too much.

So I have decided to make an effort to lose some weight and as fast as possible without taking risks, of course.

So I will use some verified and tested methods to aid me on my way down.

Are you interested in how I will do it?

Maybe you want to see my preparations?

Maybe even how you can follow my progress down?

Well, that is what I will share in this article.

Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it’s on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you’ve got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration.

Taylor Swift

Various Reasons to Be in The Red

We can all come into the red, as the lady in the pic. But, of course, she chooses a red bikini, hehe. This article is about how people go into the economic definition of being in the red.

I have been there myself, and I want to help you to avoid…

Passion — Photo by Vgstockstudio | Freepik

Passion makes idiots of the cleverest men, and makes the biggest idiots clever.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

A Passion Is Fantastic to Have

It will keep you energetic and full of joy.

You do things just because you love to do them. Not because you need to do it.

The feeling of committing to something fully hearted is magic.

Your life will become so much easier, and you reach a feeling of fulfillment.

My passion has changed a few times, maybe because I am old but also because of accidents. Not small ones but life-changing ones.

Do you want to find out about my passions…

Most of us weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouth, but if life dealt you all the wrong cards, you still have to play.

Life Starts Differently for Everyone

But it isn’t the key to happiness.

You can always work yourself towards a happy life regardless of where you were raised. You choose if you go upwards or downwards.

We all have a choice in life, always!

The road isn’t straight. Sometimes you will change direction now and then in life.

But always look forward. No one can change the past, only the future.

The best part about burning your candle at both ends is that everything is much brighter in the middle.

I Made the Conclusion

I am better than most others, but I don’t need to prove it anymore. I know it myself, and that is enough nowadays.

That made my life much more straightforward, and I enjoy it more now than before. I had in my mind that I had to show everyone how good I was.

Maybe it is my increasing age. Perhaps it is the consumption of beers.

I am not a millennial kid, so I don’t need to convince…

Not for granted — Photo by Wavebreakmedia | Freepik

Being taken for granted is an unpleasant but sincere form of praise. Ironically, the more reliable you are, and the less you complain, the more likely you are to be taken for granted.

Gretchen Rubin

In Life, There Is a Need to Be Decisive

So I made my decision, and that is, to be honest with others. I am very good at holding my side of that promise, but finding someone who does the same back is extremely difficult.

Well, life has never been fair.

So if I see no shared trust, I am history. …

I Have Learned the Hard Way

It is not clever to always be the one who talks a lot.

Most of the time, it is better to let others do most of the talking.

There is, of course, an advantage to let the other one talk more and make mistakes.

But don’t use it without care.

People that make mistakes do so because they don’t think first.

Do you want to see why I look stupid?

Do you think that I am shy?

Would you be able to…

No matter what, people grow. If you chose not to grow, you’re staying in a small box with a small mindset. People who win go outside of that box. It’s very simple when you look at it.

This Ability Is Often Seen as A Positive Benefit

Many think its origin is from the management consultants who in the 1970–1980s tried to impress their customers with it.

But it has been around for much longer than that.

In the early days of management consultants, we are entering into the businesses. Then, the mindset was to look superior to the customers. But that has changed dramatically.

Now new…

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have — life itself.

Walter Anderson

I Do Dislike People without Respect

It happens in particular if the aim for their disrespect goes towards old or disabled persons.

It is actually towards myself!

Do you want to see my points on the subject?

Do you want to see why I feel so vital for them?
