In a recent post I made on my Facebook feed, I got some interesting comments.
2 types of motivation?
This is a result of idle thoughts early in the morning, so forgive me this self-indulgence. It seems to me that there are two extremes to motivation... styles? modes? Not sure what term best references this concept. One is a Leading motivation, and the other is a Driving motivation. They're the terms I'll refer to... Continue Reading →
The Romantic Role Model
Mansplaining: to explain something to someone, typically a man to woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronising. I am not about to, so don't worry, but I am seeing this term, and the actions of the definition therein far too often. It is the Counter Wife/Women-is-always-right movement I suppose, which is a little... Continue Reading →
Clarity of Believing
The comment made on my recent blog about my atheistic nature had me thinking. The argument made was that as an atheist holds firmly to a non-belief, ipso-facto they must believe.

The Hard Road Part 9 – Making a Stand
This brings the story to almost now, and there are things happening in my life now that once upon a time, I may have been unable to manage, and may very well have found myself contemplating the unthinkable yet again. Yet I am not. I feel I have "matured," and in the true sense of... Continue Reading →
The Hard Road Part 8 – Perspectives
I was changing my view of the world. What I began to realise, and not just superficially, but innately, was just how much our world view is dependent on our individual perspectives. We aren't just all different, we see the world differently. Yet the evidence is all around us. I began to appreciate how much... Continue Reading →
