    Health, Strength, Activity 

    It’s going alright with the new look/new me even if it a slower process due to the availability of funds for a real stunning makeover – have to be consistent in the change, so Manilos as they are not affordable.  I am buying and using stuff and colours I never would have, and you know what?  It feels good!

    Then I thought of Health.

    OK, new different accessories or the use of more accessories than was my prior custom, MIGH be giving me some sort of psychological pep (it is a challenge) but what about normal health?

    New me must use more and more varied fruit and vegetables.

    Try foods that are nutrient based and yet INTERESTING.

    So I am into keeping my normally fairly good health, but improving and ‘consolidating’ it while trying new culinary treats (across the board) to buff up the “new me”.

    Think of it.  It adds a new spice to conversation; letting others get to grip with the fact that:  ” You really are new!”

    So on to strength.


    Definition? For me it boils down to right diet, the right amounts of pleasing foods and drink, the right amount of sleep and relaxation, the right amount of wholesome fun and a good portion of laughter, the right amount of meditation/introspection (strength building self affirmation) and a positive friend or two.

    For it is all about inner strength and being positive.

    Then I can go on to activity.  The active things I do.  What are they? Are they self affirming? Character building? Helpful to me or someone else? Positive? Physically or mentally strengthening? Worthwhile??

    Think I might try cycling.

    The Story Begins 

    Life is something else.  If we didn’t have it we’d be dead.

    Really, whether there is or is no “god” (and my intellect tells me there must be, i.e. a superior all-inclusive One, not unlike the Cosmos) life is all about progressing and moving  on in a way that takes us to a higher level – be it physical, financial, spiritual(?) {I concede life as the highest spiritual form}, or social.

    So the story begins.

    Firstly, I am in a new field of endeavour, well training at the moment, but training is doing in this case as it is hands-on workplace based training.  I have immersed myself in a new career.  The path is familiar as over the years either I have stepped across it, or taken a few steps on it for a short term. Yet never before have I thrown myself into it.  And I have done so with such gusto, enthusiasm and hope, and abandon.

    Having flirted with it in passing, I wonder now if I am behaving like a desperate lovelorn ageing female who is seeking satisfaction one final last time.  One last blazing effort at being happily attached to something or someone that will prove a real meaningful enduring life experience.

    It is my new beginning.  My new start after all the ups and downs and pitfalls, and slog of the years now gone, the past now dead.  So I “let the dead past bury its dead” and attempt happiness in a new, totally new dimension of life.

    Secondly, not only am I in a new area of job expertise, I am demographically relocated.  Yes, I am no longer in Hackney!  Horray!!!

    I have relocated to somewhere of which I have only a fleeting acquaintance; but somewhere, yes, I have passed with a former lover.  This make it nice.  The relocating, that is.

    The area is practically devoid of zombies.  This is an assurance of a sincerely fresh start.  I am a sincerely new person.  In outlook.  In expectations.  In health and fitness.  In aspirations.  In ummph pha!

    Fresh Start.

    The area is cleaner and more secluded; and comes with a far better physical apportioning and facade.  This for me means I have the pleasure of not only real and good-looking people about, but also pleasing gardens and refreshingly not-dull neighbouring buildings.

    The move has gone relatively smoothly, it has been assisted by wonderful friends and caring giving new acquaintances.   I have the benefit of not-so-nosy neighbours, some of whom like radio which is a plus for me as I can lie and listen to theirs when they turn it up in the evening – which they occasionally do- and smile my private smile of satisfaction. Purrrr.

    I am enjoying the new employment and workplace and even the staff there are a boon to new-job-training grumpy people like me.  They ignore me and get on with the work and thereby encourage me to do the same.  There is a slightly grumpy gal there whom I will not encourage.  She could get to me, and right now I am on a umph pha turbo boost of new beginnings COURAGE.  Well, at least she is not a zombie.

    I have a ledger/mote book and shall BEGIN to BUDGET more sanely and wisely, and strictly.

    Above all I am back into some painting and drawing etc.  My camera was stolen awhile back and I haven’t replaced it yet so not much photographing going on.  This will change as change it will.


    On To the Future

    I shall not look back.  I WILL not.

    I might at certain times remember certain things, for a time, but the past is not the present and cannot define something that is TOTALLY NEW.  New concept, new arrangement, new ME. 🙂


    I look forward to the future without trepidation.

    First Things First 

    In this stage of “new beginnings” the first thing is to set your own goals.

    So, out of a spectrum of possible things and activities to do, we set our OWN goals.

    These goals help us to ACCOMPLISH  and achieve the active successes of our new beginnings.

    I battle doubt at times.  Yes, I do.   Goals and personal reminders of my strengths etc. is often my only motivation to carry on living, carry on carrying on.  For the New Beginning(s) to work then, we set our goals and remind ourselves to aim for success in fulfilling them, BECAUSE we are capable.

    Capable of ditching the past and beginning anew….WITH FERVOUR.

    First things First

    Get to grips with reality.  Be BOLD and dive into the deep end of your life, your NEW life.

    I have dived into my new beginning.  With trepidation?  Perhaps, but I don’t feel the FEAR, so maybe not. 🙂  To quote another blogger, HarsH ReaLiTy:

    “I own what I know. I believe in what I do”.

    This applies to ALL my endeavours.


     HarsH ReaLiTy

    I spent a week away from my blog… well technically that is a lie. I am never “away” from my website, but I did force myself not to post. I spent a ton of time reading blogs and blogger thoughts. Of course after a week of doing that I have a few things to say […]

    Hate to cook? Invite a small number of friends to dinner that YOU prepare!
    Tell that AWFUL family member you like something about them or what they do, and send them a text each month for a year wishing them a great day!
    Start a NEW Community group to benefit others.
    Get a new weekly habit . Wine-tasting/Concert reviewing/Music listening/Book-club/Walking/Hiking,…
    Take flowers or some gift of love to that ONE person whose love you really really cherish and let them KNOW you appreciate their love.

    Be GOOD.

    Be BAD.

    Be HAPPY.



    Make it YOUR Spring.

    So, Having Moved On…. 


    So, having moved on like an obedient Servant of the Gods, I am feeling relieved and slightly healthier.  Like after a good shit.

    I was well on the way to being very healthy again, I know that, but the move and thing got me (gotta blame something) smoking a bit more heavily again.  I was doing well at the less of the death-stick and more of the fresh air and exercise thing, but when my enemies ‘start huffing’ I sometimes start puffing.  Furiously!

    So once again settled, at least for a couple months while I figure things out, or the Gods show me a profitable path, I am discovering that leaving that familiar unfamiliar place where I was getting oh so comfortable has not been debilitating, but releasing.

    Maybe I AM meant to be one of Life’s ‘hobos’ or something.  Maybe I really am on the God-given trail but not liking it too much, ’cause I want a home, enough money not to worry and a perfect partner to rub my back when it aches.

    Thought I had the first one licked, what with being so settled back at that place; and was investigating all sorts of ideas that might have got me some money (if I could pull off at least one) and thinking of where to start looking about for a perfect partner.  Then the BOOM of the God’s and I am out on my ass.

    I am therefore beginning to think I am an FOTG= Favourite Of The Gods.  [I have this propensity to look on/for the bright side.  Continuous shit like mine does not happen to just anyone.  I MUST be special.]

    As an FOTG therefore, I am assed if I am actually going to put a lot of effort into figuring things out, and instead I am enjoying the fact that I am not physically or mentally homeless, I get to know a different place, and my breathing problems have disappeared despite the smoking.

    Well, some of you know the Docs in Hackney couldn’t find a real cause and I blamed it on the zombies and other dead detritus that hang around that location.  Thankfully, as the wind blows and the seas flow, those that tried following or enlisting followers, have caught a cold and a boat to the goal of no release.

    So, having moved on….a new chapter is beginning.


    Fidel Castro died yesterday at 90.  Not bad for a guy who either was as special as I am, or more insane than we realised.  Either way it proves  to me:  I might as well plod on in style as the Gods truly have the final say.  Not zombies, or death threats, or assassination attempts, or diseases, or ogres with clubs.  Like Castro, I gonna smoke (burn earth, burn rubber, burn tyres, or just plain burn!) ’til I gotta hang up my guns.

    I off to find something or someone to cherish and relish and remember fondly.  Otherwise, what is the point of moving on?  In fact, otherwise, what is the point of Life?

    You with me ye Gods?

    Lost In The Glare 

    Like a cat caught in the headlights.

    Hesitant, unsure of where it is and what it should do, the animal stares at me unwavering.

    I too stare, not unwavering but wondering: “Why!  It is deer!
