Are You a Reactionary Talker in 2020

 They say’ is often a great liar.” ~ Proverb

Here's some food for thought for you. Are you a person who listens or a person who always talks?

Have you ever been telling a story that you heard from someone else and to your horror the person you are talking to was there and your story was found to be lies?

When you think you know something, realise you only know your part of the story.

When you take a backseat in life and sit in the background, watching and listening, you quickly learn that most people in life are ‘reactionary talkers’.

 

They don’t give a flying thought about what they are saying and fall into loads of little insecure traps that make them talk louder, faster and they constantly change the subject. Before you finish your part of the conversation, they are already talking about another subject that they want to talk about. When the reactionary talker is under pressure, they will do and say anything to get their point across. Usually tell lies to ignite fear. This is their natural defence system and gives them time to change the subject.

 

The gossipers are the worst for this because they have already judged the people they are talking about. They don’t give any consideration to what gossip can do to the victim of their inaccurate and embellished stories. In fact, I am not sure of the stats, but I would be ready to put a large wager on gossipers being the leading cause of teenage and adult suicide!

Courage - You Have What It Takes

 Excerpt from Fighting Your Demons 2020 edition 

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”  (Mohammed Ali)

Courage, Determination, and Will

These three words hold the keys to all personal power. When you can understand these words and see how much of each you have in your life, you will be able to conquer anything you want. You will be unstoppable, sensational, and masterful. All three qualities complement each other perfectly, and when they work in unison, you have the ingredients for greatness. Let’s break them down, understand what they mean, and see how we can get more of in our lives.

We can also describe courage as bravery, valour, guts, nerve, fearlessness, and spirit, to mention but a few. It means having the spirit to do new things and stepping up to the mark when challenged. When you master your courage, you can recognise fear and go forth to meet it head on.

Regarding boxing and boxing training, you will need loads of courage—especially if you are going to get in the boxing ring and battle for glory. Even getting to a boxing gym to start your training can take a great deal of courage. Hey, even just getting off your butt and doing some training will take loads of courage for some people.

There are an enormous number of reasons that people will lack the courage actually to get training. The fear of having to change or even going into an environment where you start off being one of the least fit or coordinated people in the gym can be too daunting.

The Benefits of Boxing Training for Older Adults

In the boxing gym we know the benefits and need not remind ourselves too much. However, for those who have yet to experience the boxing family, I highly recommend every man, woman and child get amongst it in your local community. in this video we have attached we interview Pedro (61) and Billy (47) who have been boxing training with the RAW MC for a while now. Each progressing at their own pace, but loving every minute of it.

Boxing training is a challenge for anyone. Getting out and learning how to box like Pedro at the age of 61 is rare, but not unheard of. During a hectic lifestyle as a scuba instructor, he knows the balance that is required to keep in the game, which is predominately overrun with young people. Billy us an underwater filmmaker and photographer and has been using boxing training to keep himself strong physically and mentally. 

We could go on and on why this is the best training in the world, but the video says it all...

WHO AM I NOW?

 

That woman; the mother of infants with their first steps and dirty nappies, school runs and teenage tears, no longer memories I can allow in. In one form or another, I was to be forever changed by those that once loved me as their Goddess. It is only now, all these years later, and I can see how much I have grown that I can now be grateful to them for the journey I have found myself on.

I guess the million-dollar question is, how did I, and still do in this day deal with my grief? And more importantly, how did I manage through all of that pain and distress become grateful? To be fair, I didn’t go lightly into this whole idea that from great grief comes great strength. When I was in the most pain I thought that was a load of crap and went in kicking and screaming.

I AM NOT STRONG

I AM NOT STRONG

It has been nearly 2 years since anything has been written here. A hiatus from writing was recommended by a dear friend and willingly I relinquished the quill. There are many reasons but the root of it is, I have been frozen in fear. This fear has been an accumulation of grief over a long period of time that is now being given it’s walking papers as it’s time to move on from my past. 

To be fair, if you were to meet me you would not see any deep dark scars or external damage in any shape or form. There is a certain pride and ego in letting others think you have it all together, and so perhaps, I have done you a disservice in only showing you my outward exterior, because I make pain look positive, happy even carefree.
