Pudding and Proof

So, I write all this great advice in the Strange Classrooms category, any literate arsehole could do it, probably spell much better than I too. A recent one was handling Life on Life’s Terms.  I do mention how much I hate this particular lesson in the post.

Today I have the opportunity to check out if I just “talk the talk, or walk the walk”. My sort-of-job as a game spotter and the place to stay are now GONE. I got told this and also no pay for last month, that means I have about R400 to my name and no where really to go. All the Social Media Marketing stuff I have set up is in development stage and costs me money right now, not make it. Huh. I know shit when I see it and this is definitely IT.

How do I handle this?

First do that moral inventory thing, how much of this is my fault right now?

Seems did alright there. Obviously some things I could and should have done better. Hell, I am not close to perfect, in fact I am a little bit naughty. :} Just as obvious is that the bad choices made a couple of years ago are still having their effect.  I see where the main problem comes from in the present, and I did try to help that person, with suggestions from WWW. He just got very angry and shouted at me. It is the first time I have dealt with a legal addiction problem. This one is Mafia Wars, for heaven sake, but the results are EXACTLY the same as when I go on a vodka mission. Hence his business and life being in such a mess and he will carry on regardless.

Then check if I am pissed off with the guy that is “firing” me?

Nah. He is not worth the effort.

Then should I panic?

Nah, seen worse for one thing and second very important, to me anyway, I am sober and have no plan to go drink this away, right now. So I will go to Photographic Exhibition tonight and enjoy the beauty around me as I have been taught.

My strange classrooms have taught me well, so I think I will keep on posting what I have learned in them, for the moment.  I leave you with this thought.

“I stood yesterday. I can stand today. I will not permit myself to think or worry about what might happen tomorrow because it is the dark menace of the unknown that makes cowards of us.”

A compilation of my Strange Classrooms is soon to be released, please “Like” and  keep an eye on this page.


Here is a story of developing and breaking an addiction, while dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome at the same time.

    Keep writing Wayne! You certainly have the best possible attitude in knowing that nothing is ever “wrong”. It just is.
