I Am Grateful For My Place And Purpose In The World

I am an inspired individual, whose daily footprint is best expressed through words and thoughts in writing.
Each day is a blessing, some say a gift.

For those of us who have the good fortune of receiving love, support from friends and family, have a choice regarding our education and vocations. They can surely hope to evolve learn and find peace and contentment with our choices.

There are people less able to make choices because illness or a disability or social circumstances limits their dreams, hopes, and aspirations.

Success is measured in many ways, and not necessarily by wealth and fame.

If I was to define success I would say the following

The success story of humanity lies in the way we interact and share our qualities positively with the rest of the human race. I am most grateful for my journey from youth to present.
I may not be a chief executive or drive an expensive vehicle or possess expensive materialistic items, but my place and purpose and positive choices are important footprints in my daily space and the space I share with others.

Like others, I have experienced suffering and pain, but steered myself through darkness with positive thoughts. My choices have not always steered me along a positive path, but knowing, that others are suffering in the world, are victims of cruelty or geographical disasters, confirmed that I am in position to make choices, some of which are good, some bad.

I am most grateful for my inner strength

Grateful for the gifts life has blessed me with, and grateful that I recognize my purpose as a sentient human being. Grateful for all I have received in my life journey, of living and learning the many different life events and experiences on my journey. Also grateful for the space I occupy on this wonderful planet and the energy I emanate daily to all in my personal and professional arenas.

life force

I am grateful that I feel established and comfortable with the human being I am, my place and purpose. Therefore I find little reason to complain.
My achievements may not be grand or make ground breaking news.

But their significance and purpose are footprints from my journey.
I am at peace with myself , happy and content.

Grateful is a positive word

‘Life force’

We are beautiful instruments,
Living in the ever ongoing
Mysterious orchestra of energy.
That delivers our purpose and grace.
So we may emanate our own individual
music to share
and be received as gifts
of humanity in the hearts
of those with whom we
Share our world.

Author’s Bio

Grew up in the North of England as a young child, steered my way through a difficult relationship with my mother and stepfather. Most of my spare time and school holidays was spent with my sister who had health difficulties.

In the early part of my life journey I was fortunate to have two wonderful uncles in my life. They recognized my creative gift for words and writing thus encouraged me to express myself through words and writing.

I reflect on those moments in my journey shared with two wonderful human beings and their wonderful minds, whose influence left an impression so my journey would grow and evolve. As a result I grew to be who I am and express my gratitude, compassion and energy, through my love of words and writing.

I work full time not as a writer, but I am in the process of writing a book a thought/poem/affirmation for each day of the year I belong to the spiritual writers network who have published two of my poems. ©

Choosing Your Words Wisely In an Argument

 

Choosing Words Wisely

Choosing Your Words Wisely In an Argument

We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t argue. It’s the source of new ideas, and the universal language of building and resolving our everyday issues. Arguments wage war, bring peace, and uphold a sense of law and order throughout our communities. We even argue with ourselves.

 

Whether you love to argue, or you avoid it like the plague, you will surely encounter many more situations where you will have no choice but to stand your ground. Come equipped with common sense and a simple strategy.

 

Shut Up and Listen

 

I know, it hurts. You feel like everything they say is wrong. You’re just waiting for them to take a breath between words so you can interrupt, step forward, and throw your arms around to make your point louder. Instead of immediately going on the defense, try taking a step back. Put enough space between you and the other person so they can breathe, and comfortably say what they need to say. Then, let them say it — let them say all the wrong things and even nod your head and encourage them to continue.

 

Though it may not seem like they notice, they do. Subconsciously they feel less threatened, and they can see you acting less hostile. You might even notice the tone in their voice normalizing. Listen long enough, and they’re bound to want to hear a reply. This will give you the opportunity to be heard when it’s your turn to speak.

 

Remain Calm and Collected

Some of the greatest arguments of all happen inside a locker room during halftime at a sports game. The players gather and blame, they point a trembling finger at anyone but themselves as an attempt to avoid the coach’s disapproval. The coach is their sagacious wizard, and must conduct an effective halftime speech to each individual player to both analyze and inspire the situation as a team. This is not easy. Their job is on the line, and they realize that now is not the time to be punching lockers or strangling players. They must remain focused on the end goal.

 

The same rule is applied in personal situations. Keep your head steady. When it’s not, you’re more likely to say something impulsive and possibly hurtful to your argument. Remember the old adage: Think before you speak.

 

Critique the Argument, Not the Person

This still applies even if the argument has to do with you or your opponent. Don’t attack the person, address the topic. Many people feel the need to condemn their opponent, and insult their intelligence. This is lousy, and what typically turns a sporty argument into a fist fight. Think of arguing as a game of chess: Always be three steps ahead of your opponent, plan out your maneuvers, and strike their defense where they least expect. Those that feel the need to critique their opponent, creating vicious ad hominem attacks, have blatantly admitted to losing the argument.

 

Many people want to know how to win any and all arguments, as if there was some magic phrase they can hiss to make their argument more justifiable. Unfortunately, that’s not how it works. You have to open your eyes to the situation and be creative, because arguing is the hardest art form to master.

The brain dictionary ~ Where are words located in the head?

Where exactly are the words located in your head? What is the brain dictionary? Scientists have created an interactive map showing which brain areas respond to hearing different words. The map reveals how language is spread throughout the cortex and across both hemispheres, showing groups of words clustered together by meaning. The beautiful interactive model allows us to explore the complex organisation of the enormous dictionaries in our heads.

Explore the brain model for yourself and read the paper “Natural speech reveals the semantic maps that tile human cerebral cortex”.

And also more information can be found in this article published in the Guardian: “Neuroscientists create ‘atlas’ showing how words are organised in the brain”.
