Rambling Rosa

http://rosabelle75.wordpress.com/

Rambling Rosa is a close friend of mine…

She has many thoughts & opinions about life, health, social concerns & our planet. As a result, Rambling Rosa Blog has been created.

It gives me hope, knowing that I am not the only person in this world who actually cares about the Greater World & the social, health & environmental issues! Sometimes I feel as if those of us who do care are a small minority… I get so frustrated seeing & living in a world with so many ignorant humans!

Thanks Rambling Rosa, for such a meaningful friendship.

Please stop by her blog & leave her some comments.

My Idea of a Greek God = Ang Christou

During my life, I have been a Fan of many Singers, Bands, TV, Movie & Sports Stars, but one will always stand out.

Mr. Ang Christou – Former Carlton Footballer.

In my Late Teenage Years, when he was playing AFL Football, I was smitten by his looks, personality & football ability. I idolised him & thought he was downright awesome.
But what Ang went through with his Back Injury in 1997-98, was what cemented nothing but total respect for him. He then became, the person I thought about when life dealt me personal setbacks. Ang had battled hell & come through in the end, so I knew it was possible to also hang in there.

I used to write to Ang randomly & to this day I still have his letters & photos. It meant a great deal that he would make the effort to personally write back.

Ang will always remain an inspiration to me.

To read about his current life – see the link below.

He currently co-owns the Souvlaki Hut restaurant in Lower Templestowe, with former team-mate Anthony Koutoufides.

Being Twenty-Something. They call it the “Quarter-life Crisis.”

This is an email I got many years ago. I have been there & lived the 20s, but I still see many of these aspects in life as a Thirty-Something. The Journey of life is one emotional trip…

Being Twenty-Something. They call it the “Quarter-life Crisis.”

It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realising that there are many things about yourself that you didn’t know and may not like.

You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.

You start realising that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren’t exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones.

What you don’t recognise is that they are realising that too, and aren’t really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.

You look at your job…and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realising that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.

Your opinions have gotten stronger.

You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realise that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn’t.

One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure. You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life.

You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realise that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.

You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lay in bed and wonder why you can’t meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you know that you aren’t a bad person.

One night stands and random hook ups start to look cheap. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic.

You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself…..and while winning the race would be great, right now you’d just like to be a contender!

What you may not realise is that everyone reading this relates to it. We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out.

Why Birthdays make me feel anxious…

cupcakes.jpg

mmm… I love Cupcakes! The cutest things ever…

My Birthday is only a few days away… Why do the years pass by so damn fast?

Since I turned 21, it feels like my life is travelling by in a Ferrari!

Each year seems to come & go so quickly. grrr.

I remember just before I turned 30, I went through the weirdest emotions…

It was like a mid-life crisis! Even now, I don’t want to get any older & the thought scares me!

It doesn’t help me being a female, whose most desired thing is to find mr right, marry & have children!

Men don’t have to worry about reaching an age where they can’t physically produce a child!

pftt… If men were in our shoes, they may understand why females don’t have the time to be commitment phobic, like so many modern males in Australia are! grrr.

There are so many things I still want to do & experience in my life.

It frightens me that even though I am only still in my 30s, I won’t have enough time to accomplish everything.

I know… I need to relax & enjoy the present moment, but there is a particular clock ticking loudly that definitely doesn’t help the situation! grrr.

I have done my pre-birthday venting for another year… Maybe one of these years, I will get to enjoy a Birthday again…

Cupcakes anyone?
