Don’t allow anyone who you regard as an ‘earth angel’ out of your life

Now most of us are good people, we all want the same thing….

A good life, quality food on the table, see our children thrive, our parents grow old gracefully, our friends remain loyal, chase and secure that dream job or career, have an annual vacation at the very least, travel the world and engage in foreign cultures, that special person that we just can’t live without.

Yes as the saying goes, ‘we have much more in common, than what divides us’, yet more often than not, we focus on what divides us. As demonstrated in my previous blog post, do you buy music before hearing it first? It’s an analogy, but you get the point right!

I have just spent 8 hours across 2 days, supporting a leader of people, who just cannot lead. He cracks the whip like he is in a circus, he shouts, he scorns, he demoralisies his charges, and yet he expects them to give him respect.

As we know, respect works both ways, even more so in a team environment.

Even with me, he behaves in an unsatisfactory manner, but I refuse to accept his ingrained bully like behaviour, so I continue to remind him, that the reason he has such high staff turnover, is due to his behaviour.

Perhaps I was sent to be the earth angel in his life, maybe he will change his behaviour so his public image improves and people will respect him, not because he demands it, but more like a instinctive response to his newly formed characteristics. Let’s hope so.

I suspect deep down he is a good man, but we all have a journey that will have an subconscious effect on our lives right?

So I will give him the benefit of the doubt. We all have more in common… 

The point of this blog is to embrace and not judge, to listen and not talk over, to forgive, but never forget, to change and not stagnate, to achieve and not procrastinate, to help and not walk by, to love without conditions, I could go on….
Yes this is my definition of an Earth Angel, there aren’t that many people who you come across in life, (even those in your family included), that can be defined like this.

We all have our faults some more than others, so we must give some space or flexibility where possible, but there’ll be limits, we need to love and respect ourselves first, before we can show love and respect. There are limits people!

So dear reader, do try in this hostile environment, try and be an Earth Angel whenever and wherever you can. 

Live n love always



Everybody Loves the Sunshine!

The SUN, it is our life source, without it, we just would not have a home to call Mother Earth at all.

I love the light and warmth of the sunshine, not the heat, but the warmth; there is a difference.

I lived in Mallorca in the 90’s, and most days as you would expect, are those of wall to wall sunshine from rise to set. It makes you want to go out and stay out. It also seems to make more people more friendly; though in some cultures it also means more excessive drinking of liquor too – with some unwanted but predictable consequences. The sun also makes one a bit more sexually heightened; perhaps it’s all the bare flesh on show that does that!

I live in the UK, and the UK’s climate is mid-temperate, meaning it is unpredictable. Consequently the weather is a topic of conversation for the UK population most of the time. I appreciate the seasons and their message,  ensuring that I understand and appreciate the precious cycle of life; reminding me/us that CHANGE is ever-present, and that nothing will remain the same, not now not ever; so I had better go with the change flow thingy!

I have also travelled a fair bit, in the grand scheme of things a small part of the world yes, but enough to feel that I have seen and experienced places that most people may have not, and I am thankful to be able to look back and remember with a comforting smile what I can recall and treasure.

Sometime ago, there was show on TV of an odd couple who set out to buy a property in Barcelona, some of you in the UK may remember it, it was amusing and engaging. They landed on a place on the outskirts of the city that richly inspired me; the place had character (one of my must haves) and genuine potential, and was pretty much a blank piece of paper where the couple could create a little bit of their unique paradise in the Catalan sun. The series ended where the crazy guy left his crazy girlfriend to renovate the place on her own, as they fell out of love and with each other.

I WANT SOME OF THAT (not the relationship side of things).

It is now time for me to create an abode (I have done this before by the way) where I can feel serene, inspired and safe. A place where my nearest and dearest(s) can visit, share space and enjoy quality time, filled with music, love and laughter.

Everybody Loves the Sunshine right? Gonna make it happen!
