Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

A Dangerous Time

It may be universal, and not just me.

But, I think, there comes a point in life where we have already done everything “for the first time” — and nothing is new anymore.

A certain.. staleness and tedium can set in. The feeling of being in a “rut”.

That, I also think, can be a dangerous time (or.. “feeling”, if you prefer).

I remember the excitement of many of my ‘first times’..
Those moments can never be repeated.

And I am not getting any younger.


Oh, well! C’est la vie. It is too nice a day here to fruitlessly worry about that which I cannot change.

It’s a great day to do something.. different. And break out of my rut a little bit.

Maybe try a new food?
Yeah. Maybe that’s what the doctor ordered.

I have never had Thai.

Maybe today is the day that changes?

I should go down to the shelter, and rescue a dog.

  1. Wow! A broad subject Paul…just to touch on it:
    From some of my observations on this subject that feeling is mentioned by many people.

    We are living in a restless world with various messages busing around from many sources, (partly info overload) at such a vast, furious pace, resulting in change in our feelings and often change in our lives.

    I think the Pleasantry of Memories can be repeated/felt…if we slow down to “feel” the memory. ..
    Age… I have always felt that age is a “state of mind…a chronological number” (although the sources out there will not let us remember/feel that.

    Your Quote of today covers this subject nicely.
    Have A Great Day!

    • Gaia,
      I am a big fan of “action steps”, and not much of a fan of “sit-and-feel-sorry-for-yourself-and-complain-to-all-who’ll-listen”.

      Sometimes, we have to dare to shake things up a little.

      Thank you kindly for the good wishes and, right back at you!
