Yep, I joined the facebook revolution ... and on some levels it seems like a great idea... catch up on old friends (even though it still strikes me as weird that my school buddies are MARRIED!, I mean they used to chase me around the school yard for crying out loud!) and new ones, invites to gatherings, sharing ideas and photos..
However lately it has been feeling very strange. I feel like a freaky voyeur. Checking out people photos of them at social events feels like I am behind the curtain watching other people have fun without me. Reading their posts to their other friends, like I'm sneaking in on their conversations. Listening in. Poking my nose in when it's not welcome.
I feel like I should be in a string vest with beer down the front, letching at people from the comfort of my own butt dented couch.
Sometimes I think that if I get one more e-mail promising 40 years good luck if I send to 100 friends, or warning me that aliens drop down from the trees to steal your wallet in outer mongolia I think I'll scream...
Then I get this and it makes it all worthwhile....
A Community Service Reminder from the Universe: Your gifts are innumerable; your depth is incalculable; your presence is unforgettable. Your touch is healing; your style is appealing; your power is mind reeling. And you are loved and adored on a moment-to-moment basis, more than you can now comprehend.
They should be in a hurry.. they have deadlines too... however they still insist on wasting time debating whether the word suitable would be better than the word acceptable in the business report, or deciding whether to call the area manager or e-mailing him... and don't even get me started on whether to fly or drive, or whether to repair or replace. decisions decisions!
The discoveries, breakthroughs, inventions, and masterpieces that profoundly change lives (individually and globally), rarely, if ever, require dollars or even time. They just require a little new thinking. And, you're good at this. Just think,
So recently I watched the movie Alien Vs Predator. It wasn't all bad I suppose, well I stayed awake anyways, but it got me thinking... those Hollywood Producers obviously looking for some quick cash are looking for blockbusters movies they can merge, in the hope that 2 rights make another one (WRONG!) Freddie Vs Jason being another recent example...
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Here are my ideas for movie mergers.. Should any Movie Producers reading these ideas wish to turn them into movies I will accept one off payments of $50k per idea. I know normally most would insist on a cut of the box office takings, but I'm thinking it very unlikely they'll be smash hits....
Indiana Jones Vs Lara Croft. The first to the lost relic takes the Adventurer crown.
Michael Myers Vs Thomas Hewitt Halloween meets the Chainsaw Massacre. Chainsaws at 10 paces (if it was 20 they wouldn't reach!!)
Poltergeist Kid Vs Damien from Omen Which kid can make your hair stand on end first
James Bond Vs the Transporter James Tricks alongside Transporters kicks....
Seagal Vs Van Damme. Who can kill the most guys in the mot inventive ways without a single scratch.
Your "ship" was spotted off the coast this morning, slipping silently through the fog. Coming around the cape, she appeared in a shaft of sunlight and what a sight to see! Glimmering as much as the ocean herself. Massive and beautiful beyond belief. Laden with treasures, happy times, friends, love, and laughter.
This week, though, you must prepare for her arrival. You must make space in your life for her gifts, before she heads back out to sea.
Started my own business making beaded jewellery & accessories, wholesaling jewellery and findings, and teaching jewellery making classes. This is in between working full time and my young son. Sleep is a hobby :)
