How to Have a Happier Marriage (Without Changing a Thing) – by Winifred M. Reilly


2015 Resolutions to consider.

Kindness Blog

cute-love-quotesAs we look to the new year, we often focus on ways to be “better” — resolving to do more of what’s good for us and less of what’s not. To (at least most of the time) come from our best.

For a good many of us, finding ways to have a more satisfying marriage is high on our list.

But in our rush for improvement, we overlook this key fact: Much of what makes marriage challenging is the stuff that’s not easily changed. The stuff that’s more about who we are and what we value. The stuff that can, unfortunately, drive us totally nuts.

Such as a spouse’s need for order or solitude, or another’s call to adventure. A tendency to dawdle or multi-task, a penchant for losing one’s keys.

HOW FINALLY I UNDERSTAND MY MOTHER


It does not say much for any society, if people are to be judged solely on their religion, race, gender, or disability. We are all what we are and should be judged on how we conduct ourselves.

Discrimination is abhorrent and should not be acceptable in any form of Society.

96-Me-Young-HPCR-1I don’t remember how many times my mother told me this story and I have, in another context, told it to you too.

My mother, like many young women of her generation, had wanted to attend high school. And college. But the family was poor and there were many mouths to feed. In the end, she had to quit school after seventh grade to take a job. She worked as bookkeeper, a respectable profession. At 14, my mother was respectable. Also naïve and innocent.

The first place she worked was a music publishing house on the Lower East Side where she had grown up. She was there for seven or eight years and finally decided to seek a better paid job.

Immigrant children had trouble breaking into the workforce. And of course, my mother had the additional burden of being female at a time when women were not considered equal. There was no “political correctness” to…

Some do like it hot, Not some Labour MP’s


Hot, should we go home or relax

So a bunch of Labour MP’s feel workers should be sent home if the temperature exceeds 30 degrees, but do they mean all workers. If they mean themselves, they do not count, as the temperature in the House, is mainly hot air being expressed by MP’s and secondly, they did say workers.

But, as to all workers, this would mean that all hospitals and care organisations would have to close, who would look after patients and care home residents, no Police, fire officers. Even at home, what could you do, there would be no electricity and gas or even water. You could not go to some other venue as these would also be closed.

These Mp’s need to live in the real world, there are many countries that experience these and even higher temperatures for more periods of the year, than do the UK and they manage.

Unfortunately in the UK, we are never satisfied, we grumble when its cold, when its wet, when its windy, in fact we just grumble.

Lets be thankful we are alive and live in relative peace.
