The Human mind is TRULY an amazing, yet confusing thing. I am trying to figure it out. I am now asking how many famous people went crazy trying you understand who they, others, our brains act in the way they do. Right now I am JUST SO BORED. Boredom to me is never a good think having 4 Disabilities, M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) + Fibromyalgia + PTSD and Psychosis as they can take over. A small action usually is the trigger for me, big things I can usually just walk past or over, the smallest of things can get me over-thinking and it’s not always a good thing. Right now I am going for ‘Funny’, but I can’t be sure this will be funny 😀 If anything, our brains are good fun, I mean if we all were serious and angry in our thinking, it would rip us to pieces, trust me, I been there, I still might be there 😀 All I go do is live in moments (I think). I may look at this tomorrow and think “Oh Shaun, Why”, because often I do. But let’s get real here, who do I harm? Answer! NOBODY 😀 Cheer up World.. TRUST ME, IT COULD BE OH, SO WORSE. Maybe……….. lol. Anyway, a stupid thought created this copy and paste below. Enjoy…..

  1. Give yourself a shoutout. Even if no one else seems to be appreciating you at the moment, compliment yourself on the way you handled a difficult situation, left your comfort zone for a new adventure, or just got through a busy day.
  2. Give yourself a pep talk. We could all use a motivational speaker from time to time, but we don’t always have one handy. Self-talk can help you motivate yourself to achieve a goal at work, in a relationship, or in your personal behavior.
  3. Debate both sides of a difficult decision. Saying your options out loud and elaborating on the pros and cons can help bring the right choice to light, and you might be surprised at the unexpected direction your thoughts take when they’re audible.
  4. Blow off steam. If you’re not the type to confront people who tick you off, talk to yourself about how they bother you or how unfair a situation is. Introverts are especially prone to missing opportunities to assert themselves. Put the “self” back in self-assertion.
  5. Understand your thoughts better. Sometimes we’re sure we think one way, but our psyche tells us differently. Have you ever found yourself crying when you didn’t think anything was wrong? That’s your subconscious letting you know. Invite it to join your conversation to bring you to new levels of self-awareness.
  6. Rehearse a difficult conversation. Practicing what you need to say to get your points across clearly and without anger will put you in a much better position when it comes time to communicate about a tough issue.
  7. Boost your memory. Research shows that saying the location out loud when you place an object will help you remember where you put it.
  8. Shake off stress and anxiety. Who couldn’t use one more way to get rid of stress? Work it through with a monologue.
  9. Improve attention span and concentration. Indeed, many people with ADD talk to themselves to help bring a tangle of thoughts into focus. Notice how often you see athletes muttering under their breath before an event; they’re calming themselves down (#8) and pumping themselves up (#2). It works.
  10. Improve attention span and concentration. Indeed, many people with ADD talk to themselves to help bring a tangle of thoughts into focus. Notice how often you see athletes muttering under their breath before an event; they’re calming themselves down (#8) and pumping themselves up (#2). It works.Leaving my husband and daughter at home, I took a 2-mile walk, stretching my legs and my mind as I chattered to myself about my blessings, complaints, and confusions. I didn’t solve everything that had been bothering me, but I did lift some weight from my shoulders by listening to the sound of my own voice as it brought forth some notions I hadn’t been aware of.

    So whenever you see people talking to themselves, remember that it’s a sign of sanity, not insanity. It makes us wiser, calmer, and more motivated. What are you waiting for? I can’t hear you.

Living in pain with a brain illness – I am starting to understand things and people

7d8e410624cc96efade256b0d5aaf563I removed my stupid self from Facebook and a lot of other things in the last week, but I had good reason. Just now a family member is being annoyed by some idiot next door, pissing on my family members door mat, tapping the door then running away, threatening them, basically being a coward. I wanted to go to this person’s door and just have it dealt with, but family thought it WISE to call the police, and that is not how I deal with a ‘LIBERTY TAKER’ Someone who will do things to try and alter the mind of another to any given emotion. I think these ‘Liberty takers’ are cowards, real men just say to face or just jog on, that is all I know, so the restraint needed to not just go to this person’s door and finish this is very difficult for me, but over the last week in holding back seeing a family member suffer at the hands of a Coward it made me see something in myself, through my 4 disabilities

I am a person who can sleep like a happy baby with ANY emotion in my mind, I have the ability to sleep after someone says “I am going to kill you” or whatever crap people say. See real people just kill you, cowards give you the time and date so I just say “OK, we will be out, thanks for the heads up arsehole” 😀

d1660f22dbf09af7823b7ddcf50088eaThis new drug I am on MST Continus is a bit strong, but it is taken morning and night and is slow release, it differs from my old medication I was on in the way it doesn’t give you one big hit of pain relief at once, no, this just slowly enters your mind and body and you feel it, I can feel it in my mind. Strange thing the mind, I always want to be in full control of my mind, I never allow any person to enter my mind and try and own it, never going to happen. People have tried to play childish games with me in the past and always I slept well and didn’t give them thought. For me as a disabled guy living in agony and a mind that is hard to keep in check as it can be confusing with Fibromyalgia and M.E/CFS. Because I am in the Gym hitting leather and PVC every day I am needing flesh to hit, and the person annoying my family member was a target for my mind for a day or 2, but I managed to get rid of the idea of tying the prick to a chair and keeping him alive. I don’t mean that, it’s just a thought. I don’t play well with cowards, I tend to just deal with them and move on, I refuse to allow another to own my mind. But as I am off 5 different medications and now on 2 new ones I am trying to find my centre again, trying to re-establish where I am and what is around me. Always as a young kid my Dad would say to me “Know who is around you son, in-front, behind and at each side” and as a kid I never really got it, but I do now, I taught my own son’s this and I think they may struggle to understand it 😀 Life is very, VERY easy, and I prefer to live with a quiet mind, I own my thought and nobody can ever take that from me. They can mock, hit, play, do what they will, but not one person can control or own my mind, and that is what I am learning again. The man I used to be would just go and finish the story, get it over with and just go home as if nothing happened. Today I have two wee girls to help grow up, so I needed to grow up. This is why I came off Dr’s Heroin and am killing myself in the Gym every day. My mind, my entire being is for my family, I come 2nd because I can control my World, but I am noticing others can’t. It is what it is right?

11416159_10207009625624143_6777975463268398855_nBe good World, life can hit us from any side, in-front, behind or either side at any moment and we are left regretting we didn’t look to see what was around us. Don’t be paranoid with this, just understand EVERYTHING and EVERYONE around you, then you own your World. People say “But I can’t change the World” I say back “So go and change your own World” If we all did this, our World would be a better place I believe. Also, denying what and who we are, becoming something else or different because life said so can make us all very ill and unwell. I think we must always be ourselves and never deny who we are. Trust me, I seen it, made it, cleaned it, made the mess, you name it I done it, and got the preverbial T-Shirt to say so. Be yourself, don’t be someone else. Or life will hit you like a ton of bricks because you were not looking at what is around you, your mind was in a state of NOWHERE. Know who, what, whoever, whatever is around you, and the bricks miss you

More love, less hate

‘My Political Views’ – In One Simple Image


I always love it when I see someone else post how I feel. I seen this on Twitter and HAD to share. Some images can be so powerful

How people perceive, and getting our message across to others

communication-and-interpersonal-skills-24-638Something that has been on my mind all day, so I am bored, so here I am blogging it

The title explains what I am about to say, but not until you have fully read it will you know what I am talking about. I am not one to care what others think of me, never have, never will, if I was that type of person, I probably would not be blogging this or any blog about any subject outside football

I have a few friends who give me a hard time doing this blog, they joke about it, but deep down I know they are really thinking “He is off his head” That is cool, because there are thing they do I don’t understand, I just don’t judge them, but it is all in fun

I started blogging Soccer, so people seen me blogging a year ago, when I started blogging about me and my world and how I perceive it, I did so on the QT, I didn’t really tell many Family or Friends. Many reasons, one, they might not care and two; I didn’t think it had anything to do with them. Recently I blog the odd thing I write onto Facebook, and it get’s like one comment and 2 likes, lol

With blogging it is all about whom you are blogging to and what you are blogging about. For me, as I have said, this has been a wonderful experience for me so far. What people think, I don’t care, as I say, I have many family members and friends, and many of them do things that would make me want to cry out of boredom, you get the picture

So I ask you, are you self conscious of what others think of you blogging? Do you hide it from your life? I mean your day to day stuff, away from the Internet? I used to, then I thought to myself one day “If someone dislikes me due to what I write, then they can go throw shit at themselves” or words to that effect. See I think we all do try to have an impact on others, but maybe only in here, in the blogosphere, on the internet.

I blog for “Bloggers for Peace” and “Master Peace” as well as blogging my own stuff, the Bloggers for Peace on here, I guess I was already on that page. So I try to make a difference, but trying to make that difference away from this blog and the internet is the real challenge. So I often wonder if what others think of us stops us from really trying to help and bring change. I blog the odd thing to my Facebook, just to test the water, and nothing! So either all my family and friends don’t give a shit, or they are too lazy to read.

So what I am saying is, many here want and try to change our earth, how can we bring change to people’s minds who are not here, and in what other ways can we get the message off the internet and into the street? I am talking in a “you and I” level here

Just thought I would throw that one out there


Get busy living or get busy dying

Dealing with being pissed off at being in pain and other things

Yesterday and today, although better today my yearly Sinus issue begun. I am to take antihistamines each day, and I wasn’t, so I paid for it yesterday. I spent the day STRUGGLING to do normal things. Already in agony with my normal Chronic Pain I had to deal with this Migraine, right behind my eyes and my sinus was blocked and also shooting pains in both ears

Some days I wake up and “Pray for one day” Just one day where I don’t have to deal with this. Again, I say this and I get guilty. And I know now I shouldn’t but I can’t help it, others tell me this, some who are well worse off than I. People who have no movement from the neck down to people dying, all telling, me not to feel this guilt, it is just my way, I can’t change it, but I guess it is my pain, my story, my life and my blog, so I have to learn to share, as I have been, with no guilt, and I do try

As a kid my Mother tells me I got ill often, as an adult I just don’t get ill, no flu’s, no colds. No nothing. I wasn’t ill yesterday; I was just sore, but in another way. Dealing with EVERY DAY! Is becoming tiresome, annoying, painful, upsetting, brings anger and hate! And I don’t do hate. I just hate having to burden my family with my issues, again, I am being stupid, they tell me this, people on here have told me this, but again, these are my feelings

Someone asked “What is the pain like” I answered “All over body toothache” This is the best way I can describe my pain. Others will have other ways to describe it, this is how I describe my pain, all over toothache, and only all day and every time I frikkin blink!

So getting annoyed is a symptom for me, getting angry, and depression is another. I am not depressed; I have not been told I am clinically depressed. I went to speak to an expert and had him in stitches of laughter; he knew I wasn’t depressed; I just got angry when the pain came.

I am tired. I need to rest, but I am stubborn, I don’t listen to my body. When my body tells me to rest, I don’t, and I should, so this is something I need to break through. If my body tells me to rest I rest. This is all new to me.  I have had this way over 10 years, but only the last few years have these thoughts came to my mind. I hope by restarting Soccer management and buying a Dog to walk will at least allow me to build up my muscles. I have been told and advised by my Dr, the Hospital and my occupational therapist to do both. “Get Moving” they tell me, and I have started, but with it comes enormous pain

I am fighting harder than I have, I am pushing myself to the limit, both mind and body, in the hope  I can break free from the mind games I play with myself. Pain is pain, no matter what I do, I will be in pain, and it is just the levels. I am testing myself to the limit here and if the pain is stronger, tough, I need to get back to living, I need to get out of this self created bubble and get out there again, doing things I love. Should I fail, I don’t know what I will do.

So, get busy living, or get busy dying

Thoughts for a friend who is hurting x

Sorry For your Loss

I woke up this morning to an email from one of my friends to say her Aunt had died. Just a message to say, I am here for you

At times like this Anger can sweep away memories of the person who passed. For now think of your loved one who has passed and nothing else, remember your loved one fondly and remember she is in a good place now. She had a long fulfilling life

I know you are angry with other emotions also, but for now remember whom you have lost.

I am here, as always as a friend should you need me. Always

With love and hugs from afar, Shaun x

One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along
the beach with the Lord.

Across the dark sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed
two sets of footprints in the sand,
one belonging to him and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the
very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.

“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life there is
only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when I needed you most
you would leave me.”

The Lord replied “My precious, precious child,
I love you and would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints in the sand,
it was then that I carried you.”
