I thought it may be fun, informative and interesting to post on a range of topics that may make interesting discussion. This range of subjects may be added to over time. So far I have three topics listed below, which are often on my mind. The subject matter will be in ‘categories’ I am still finding my way around wordpress, so the formatting may improve over time😜
Regarding definitions, I always admire people who stop a person mid sentence, and say “please define that word” …….. The definition of words that I choose are not necessarily the definitions given in a dictionary, but rather my ‘take’ on the word. I will add the dictionary definition in a link for clarification. I feel precision of language is very important, and often language is misunderstood for a multitude of reasons, and sometimes the dictionary does not help, particularly when language has evolved so quickly in recent times.
Nature is amazing to be sure. I am still surprised that it is not taught more extensively in educational institutions. I have a reasonable knowledge of nature…..self taught, and figured it would be nice to share some of the wonders of this earth with more of you out there.
3. Messages in films:
There are many films out there that have messages…..more than you would imagine. I would like to share my thoughts on the messages that I see in these films.
So….if any of the above subject matter interests you. Click on them in ‘categories ‘ and you will find all the posts for that subject.
And so to begin…
Judgemental / Judgement
My definition: what it is/is not…..
Some people make a statement about something, somebody/creed/culture..whatever, and others mistake this statement as a judgement. When it as actually merely an observation, albeit from their point of view/perspective/opinion.
In this instance, perhaps instead of jumping on your soap box, you could ask…
1. Do you dislike/hate these people/cultures/creeds/ Whatever?, If the answer is “yes ” then maybe it is truly a judgement .
2. Are you open to hearing another’s point of view on the said subject? If the answer is “yes” then this is good…provided each party can remain calm, without malice or aggression, and if necessary be prepared to agree to disagree. “Yes” in this situation should mean parties are open to others opinions/points of view, and therefore you are not being judgemental yourself.
Often people are merely misinformed or uneducated, therefore maybe we owe it to them to listen, and then speak.
The biggest part of communication is listening.

Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.
