The "cause" before the "effect"




Ever hear of cause'n'effect before?

It is a theory.  Don't ask me how or by whom, the great idea expounded to everyone's great, deep, understanding ::..... either spiritually or mathematically, that for every action their is a reaction.  Get it?  I'm trying to get the great stuff outta here, which drown out the bad stuff.  My dad would always ask us:  "what's the pay off?"  I don't know where that came from, really.  Was it just amazing vision and understanding to determine that is the defining question by which all persons should be able to answer when struggling with a decision:  "what's the pay off".  Kind of like what someone else say:  "what's the worst that can happen? Now, tell me what is the best that could happen?

They say that you should blog at least 5 days a week if you want to make any tremors in the stratosphere.  I'm hard pressed to sit down and write.



No shortage of ideas.  Sometimes I think I need a funnel and sieve to drain all the ideas billowing out.  Each area I examine where my interests are.  I haven't decided yet, what is the apple of my eye.  Yet.  I'm honing in on some fascinating self-discovery.




Take a look at yourself inside.  I mean deep, deep inside.  And, answer these questions to yourself, privately, so that only you can hear, yet spoken aloud.  



What are your answers for:

* Regardless of religion, would you end up at the Pearly Gaits or hanging in between, floating .... 

* Have you ever killed anything or anyone?

* Have you ever betrayed your mother or treated her unjust?

*Do you think you are selfish?

*How are you selfless?

In a quick reaction, answer the most instinctively honest that you can.

a) i am jealous of someone else?
b) i am mad at somebody else?
c) i have regrets about somebody else?
d) i know i could have tried harder but?  what? ___________is your excuse?
e) i don't treat my body as though it were a vessel for health and longevity?
f) i spend money recklessly?
g) i hate my job, boss, husband, wife, brother, sister, Mother, Father?

h) i am mean to other people, kids, animals, bugs, nature, or the environment?
i) i disregard authority.  i have committed a crime.   i have stolen or lied?
j) i say one thing, and then do the opposite?
k) i don't cherish, be faithful, protect my wife? protect my husband's heart?
l) i don't do more than my share, i complain about others, i make up excuses?
m) my, me, myself, mine are the only thing i care about?
n) i live with fear, abandonment, hurt, violence from someone else?
o) i care about others long before myself, i am gullible, i am too ___________
           (tall, short, fat, skinny, old, young, shy, bad, unworthy, unhygienic)?
p) people have given up on me? people don't care about me? people have abandoned me?
q) i question authority?  i question the "cause" before i start on the "effect"?

A Pictorial Post

Flash back to the 80s and 90s when I was an advertising sales representative.  We didn't have fancy titles, the title of where we worked in the media was our badge of honor.  Mine was magazines.  How I love the smell of the ink without the annoyance of a whole lot of black stuff rubbed on my thumb and index finger.  

Some words float out of me as part of those days.  I'll have to root through and find some of my favorite projects and share on ThePublisher blog that I created to talk about publishing.  It is a topic I love in the act of sharing information and making the world a more beautiful place.

A Pictorial, as I recall, and before I go to the ever-handy WIKIpedia for the answers ::..... is an editorial piece that is almost all visual photography, imagery or art with only captions below minimally.  It allows the viewer to absorb and take in the image fleetingly capturing where your eyes fall upon.  Comments unnecessary, yet impossible if you are its creator, who happens to l…

Things that will make you think and say "huh"

I was looking around, surfing the net and was wandering indiscriminately around based on the various links that are emailed to me.  I guard my email address in such a way that I have everything organized, categorized.  It is important that when I subscribe to a site, that it does something for me.  Personally.  Not my husband, nor my family nor my employer.  It is my time.  Yes, it makes me a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, employee when I do so.  

What I see and what I post are random and make me mentally say "huh".  Not loudly as an acclamation "HUH!!" nor drawn out with puzzlement as in "huH??"  Just a small registration, like a blip, I mentally register with a "huh".  As in, interesting, let me read more.

You would think that as a person you have to be guarded and wary of giving too much of yourself away, to be taken unawares and exposed to danger, inconvenience, unwarranted attention, unsolicited retention.  

Imagine being a compa…

Triumph over struggle

This blog was originally written earlier today (Saturday, March 4, 2017) on my optioneerJM blog on Word Press ~ where I find an atmosphere of support and celebration of original writing among those who write themselves.  It is the highest compliment any fledgling writer can have.Like most of us at the tail end of Baby Boomers while being drowned out by Millennials, we're trying to get ahead.  Achieve success, notoriety or acclaim.  Subsidize our career choices with our inner voices.  To help others, to help ourselves.  To exhaust our demons by writing and exhuming scars that life has left on our brains.Confidence or competenceA struggling battle between what we want to express and be appreciated for our words.  So many of us write to right the struggles we have fought, the wars we have lost, the lessons we have learned.Gratitude: pitiful compensationWe appreciate the acknowledgement by others who are in chained to the common goal:  of being paid for our words.  What a steep mounta…
