No One Is Coming To Save You.


When I was a carefree teenager, I didn't have a care in the world, no kind of worries, the only thing that worried me was why my friend had fallen out with me, and why didn't the boy that I fancied, didn't fancy me back.
   Those were the day's I say with a sigh, they have long gone and life has got much more serious with the problems to match, sometimes I wish I was back there, those days of ease and no responsibilities, but I can't and have to face them.
    In my late teens and early twenty's that transition from being a teenager to a grown women started to kick in and I started to get that  feeling of low self esteem and the feeling that I was in no way good enough, I very often compared myself with everyone else not realizing that they too had there own set of problems, and fears and insecurity's,  I was so lucky to have a very wise Mother who had been through life's ups and downs and had seen it all,and who  was there to advise me and I was extremely lucky to have that wisdom my whole life, she gave me some very good advice when I was saying to her I am no good everyone has better jobs that me, they are slimmer than me,  I remember the words she used so well she said,  excuse my vulgar language "everybody shit's",   what she meant was it doesn't matter who you are we  are all are the same, it's something I have remembered forever, when ever I get down and when I feel low I remember her words and remind myself, and it makes me carry on
   I also moaned once that why doesn't God ever help me and she reminded me very sternly that God only helps people that helps themselves, she cut me down in a second and I felt very guilty for being so selfish for even asking the question. That was me told.
   I have tried to live and be a good person throughout my life, and I think I have mostly succeeded. I am sure we all have people in our lives who have offered good advice, but have we listened to them ? I am sure when we have looked back we have  said to ourselves "My they were right" I know I have.   So in conclusion, I think I will always listen to my Mother's  wise words, and realize that, No one is coming save you, and you have to save yourself.

Climate Change Tips, What You Can Do To Help.

With all the talk about climate change, and all the protests in London at the moment, I wanted to do a little research about it, of course I have heard of climate change, since the late eighties, when I first heard of the term The Ozone Layer, we did learn a little about it, but to be truthful it never really went any further than that.  But lately with all the talk around I have been thinking very carefully about this planet we have borrowed to live on.
  I have done a lot of reading on the subject  in the last week and have been surprised how many things I can do to help climate change I  have decided to adopt some if not all of them for myself, some I already have done without realising that I had.  Can you imagine if all of us do our bit for the planet we might be able to save so much of it for future generations. Here are my tips, can you help?
