Everything begins with a thought, even me. The magnificent act of creation begins with a single thought. The Eiffel Tower, the Hoover Dam. A thought is an impulse of energy and information. Descartes said it better. I designed this piece especially as a Metal Print.
I have Diabetes. The Doc says I need to increase my level of exercise. (I thought I had!) Anyway I want to step up to the challenge so I've bought myself a "Fitbit" watch. Among other things it counts the number of steps I take each day. Very clever. Well, it's working. When I bought it last week I was doing about 2000 steps. Now already I'm up to 6000. My goal is 10,000 steps a day. (That includes 30 minutes on the bouncer) And my sugar level is pleasantly dropping. Hurray! (BTW it only cost me NZ$14.00 - a good investment!)
I'm thirsty. I need some water. I'll find a glass. Turn on the tap. Sip some water - ah, that does the trick!
Now what did I just do? Several miracles. When my body alerted me to the pangs of thirst I set my brain in motion. My brain sent a cluster of commands to my hands to perform some very simple actions.
A thought is an impulse of energy and information. Magnificent. With a few silent and invisible thoughts I created some physical reality. Hey! I can create my reality just by thinking! Too good to be true?
Our culture is changing. When I was a kid we were taught to roll with the punches. These days it's more like "Now who's gonna offend me today" We have become too damn precious. Too PC. Have a look at your news today. I bet you'll find someone is suing someone else for something quite trivial in the scheme of things.
I was buying my bottle of red wine for the week when I got talking to the lovely man at the counter. I was telling him of some of my experiences of The Law Of Attraction.
"Sounds too good to be true" he said. (I hear that so often.) But all I was saying is what has actually happened in my life. Really happened.
All I've done was to follow four simple steps. And here they are:
1. Have an idea (of something you want.)
2. Hold on to that thought. Think about it all the time.
3. Share your idea with a supportive friend.
4. Now sit back, relax and watch what happens!
Yep it works just like that! I know.
Just ten minutes drive from my home lies this magnificent beach. It's called Point Chevalier Beach and is only about 15 minutes from Auckland's CBD. In summer of course the place is crowded with picnics, kids, dogs, swimmers and sunbathers. Pohutukawa trees line the shore. At Christmas time they burst into a spectacular show of crimson blossom. This picture looks out across the beach to the the Upper Harbour

I keep bumping into frightened articles saying that retail is gonna die. They say Online is the way of the future. Huh? I doubt it.
My experience of retail is not good. And yet it could so easily be so much more appealing. My expectations are pretty basic. I want to be listened to, I want to be taken seriously and please don't look so bored! I think they call it engagement.
Yes I know you get bullied and verbally abused from time to time but that's what training is for.
A good example of what I'm talking about is our local hardware store. Wow, the staff are excellent. Greeting, helpful, knowledgeable. I do enjoy going there. And then they ask me how it was for me. I love shopping there. Their advice has helped me out so many times.
Why on earth would I shop online when I enjoy going into the store so much?
