Living Better & Too Much Advice

There is no shortage of advice these days. On how to be:

A Success….or Happier……or more Productive……or Fulfilled….and on and on.

But it’s time ask yourself:  What do *you* think is “the Answer”—and why that? Ya know, its kinda weird. For all the tons of books and advice out there, almost no one tells you to “trust your own judgement”.  Everyone wants you to follow *them* (while they make more money). People are too dependent and reliant on what others tell them is the answer—to “get ahead”…to “find Bliss”…or whatever.

I was just recently in a Barnes and Noble Bookstore and there are lots of books on “Mindfulness”. It’s all the rage these days. And meditation. In the bookstores, On Youtube.  But—the answer, keeps changing with time. As if they are fads that come and go.

Over the last 40 years, advice has been all over the map. But what do *you* think is best?  Is it all about:

“letting go”…..or “taking responsibility”……or “getting in touch with your inner child”….or cutting out “toxic people”……or “getting more confidence”…..or “finding your passion”……or starting your own business…..or “forgiving yourself”…..or “being assertive”…..or labeling half the people in your life as “narcissists” and then ghosting them?…..or buying excersize equipment?….or being more “grounded” (How? what does that even mean?)….or “balancing your Chakras?”…..or “being more mindful” ?

Next year, when the bookstores have another new batch of advice-books, will you jump on the Bandwagon or whatever the next fad is? Even the “experts” keep changing. So!  After all the books, and TedTalks, and Youtube videos, and therapists—-What do *you* think is best? and Why?

The Lost Room. with Peter Krause

The LOST ROOM, with Peter Krause. This was awesome. On DVD. A short series.  Good Scifi.

A father and his daughter stay in a Motel.  The daughter goes into another room and disappears to….who knows?   Peter has a Key. He opens the door to go after her but strange things happen.

And then, the are the “Objects”. Ordinary things.  A Comb, a Flask, the Coat, a Train Ticket, the pair of Glasses, a Pen, a pair of scissors, the Nail file and several other things, but with very unusual powers.  Other people want these objects. Badly. There is also the Prime Object. Sort’ve a master object. Will Peter get his daughter back?   You can order this from Amazon, on DVD.   I really enjoyed this one.

Dress Codes

Most likely, where you work has some sort of Dress Code.

Who writes these things?

Get this:  Employees will not wear:

Jeans that are ripped, Halter tops, tank tops, etc., etc.. on and on…..BUT——Blue Hair, Nose-rings, Yellow Lip-stick and weird/freaky hairstyles are just fine.

You cant be  “distracting”  with a sexually attractive appearance, (some places wont allow Sundresses, even though you are covered) but if you’re flat-out butt-ugly with tattoos and freaky hairstyles and grungy street-clothes and nose-rings or are just a plain outrageous eye-sore to the “community” (workplace) appearance, its OK.

So I ask:   Just how outrageous would things need to get before we said” enough is enough” ?   Too many today confuse “freedom-of-expression” with a “license” to see how glaring and odd they can be.
