Making the best of a bad situation

So the other day I heard of some guy betting $1 and winning $200,000 online. This made me wonder how here there's a global pandemic and this guy makes money during such a time. It reminds me of a quote "throw a lucky man in the sea and he'll come up with a fish in his mouth".

It seems that there will always be a set of people who come out better off after facing adversity than they were being comfortable. Are you one of those people? Adversity can either bring us down or motivate us to do something. Adversity starts turning the gears in our heads so we are forced to figure out ways out of it and think of various scenarios and plans that allow us to do so. If we were comfortable all the time, we would never have the impetus to innovate, think, and try to pull ourselves out of a situation.

When we face adversity, we are forced to look at our toolbox to see what all tools we have to work with? We are forced to look at the resources we have at our disposal and to ask our…

Wedding rings

What does a wedding ring really mean? What does it symbolize?

In today's society the emphasis on a wedding ring is put very early on. The ring cannot have a small diamond because that would only be understood as the woman not being worth much.

The wedding ring has to be big because that's the only way to signal that she is worth it right? The bigger the ring the more she's worth or is it the bigger the ring the more her husband earns?

These rings are nothing but a way to show off one's resources and to inflate their sense of self. In reality nobody cares about the wedding ring except the husband (for having paid so much), the wife (for it being so small) and the jeweler (for having made a sale).


Someone for everyone?

We often hear "there's someone for everyone" but if there are chances that there is someone out there for someone, there must also be a chance that there isn't anyone out there because we cannot have one without the other. If there os a chance that there is someone out there there must also be a chance thay that there isn't anyone out there.

Of course if one is looking to be entertained, there are always those present whose job or profession it is to entertain. Therefore if you happen to be one of those who for whom nobody is out there, you can still find someone who will entertain you for a few hours. Many people make the mistake of equating being alone with being lonely.

They all have a boyfriend...

...until they don't.

They all are in a relationships, until they aren't.

They're all in love, until they aren't.

They don't care about money, until they do.

They all want to get married, until they no longer want to stay married.

They're all in love with you, until they're in love with someone else.

A good reason to blog

One good reason to blog in my opinion is that you can't be interrupted. Many things out there are irritating, but one of the top ones is being interrupted. People somehow don't understand the dynamics of conversation. My response to that is I don't give them the pleasure of my conversation and simply move out away from their proximity.

When one expresses themselves in print or online, there's no way to interrupt the written word so it's a good way to get your thoughts across. Not coincidentally, those that interrupt the most are also the least likely to read. It's no surprise that these highly opinionated know it alls don't need to hear what anyone else says because well, they know it all. They are no doubt vociferous in their opinions and never consider facts. Another trait I have noticed (besides a lack of intellect) is that these people rarely ask questions. Naturally, if they know it all, why should they? Asking questions means that someone wants to fin…
