I have spent the last couple of hours shopping and realised that no one seems to want to “hold hands” any more.  What is wrong with holding hands?  People seem to be in a hurry – no one seems happy and seriously people are out to “get you”.  I walked into a shop that was crowded.  I stopped to wait for someone to come out past me.  Instead a “larger” woman, with two kids and then a husband came into the shop.  Stood in front of me and waited for the woman I was waiting for to leave and barged through.  Not only that I tried to follow and her “family” were in the way.  I couldn’t get past.

In the end I left the store and the store owner lost a sale.  There is no blame but common courtesy should have prevailed in this instance but everyone’s in a hurry.

Shopping used to be fun, now I try and pick my times in an attempt to avoid people.  That’s sad I think and disappointing also. 

On the other hand I didn’t spend any money so I saved it for another when I hopefully will find something I need rather than want.

Thank you.

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. What do I want to do? I have my new house and am enjoying making it my own but now I am looking for the right job for me after 10 years of being "just a receptionist". I don't want to be "JUST" anything anymore. I would like a job that helps me grow personally, something that encourages me to learn but also where I can be creative and people appreciate me. I want, I want, I want but really I need to know that I am comfortable in my own skin and my life means something to me. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".
