So I’ve always been enthralled by new and upcoming cryptocurrencies. In a world where everything is becoming more and more contact less and given the current climate with the global pandemic it doesn’t seem it will be too long before cash is a thing of the past.
It’s also an ever growing factor that people are awakening to the role and power banks have throughout the world in regards to interest rates and loans and lending and the general cost of holding and passing money. The want and need for a free transaction process is becoming ever greater and how long is it really before the world opens up to a major crypto play.
I’ve just come across a new and upcoming cryptocurrency which is in the very early days of its cycle, but I think if you’re one that’s interested in the exponential rate of growth these currencies are achieving I emplore you to check this out.
Bee.com has just begun it’s public growth stage before becoming main market and listing on the cryptocurrency exchange, which means if you’re looking for the next big thing to get involved with this could be it, you don’t need any input of money to jump on this wagon, just a mobile and an app store.
Build your bank of Bees before it becomes monopolised and monetised and you could be sitting on a nice little earner in the not so distant future.
Simply log in each day and click the bee to start collecting, referring people is their incentive for you to earn more Bees which will gain the popularity they need to get to the main marketing point at which point you’ll no longer be able to pick up free Bees.

Another post that had been sitting in the draft pile.
“I’d learned that some things are best kept secret.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John
“Three may keep a Secret, if two of them are dead.”
– Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanack
I was told a secret the other day. A big, dark, potentially dangerous secret that I must keep to myself, for risk of people finding out the truth could lead to devastation to the world that is surrounding me. Jobs would be lost, people could go to jail and a lot of individual’s lives would be greatly impacted. Am I in the wrong for keeping this held in? Right now I am yet to decide whether the pro’s outweigh the con’s and how much of an impact it could have if I were to say nothing and the secret came to light by another means. Fortunately I’m pretty strong minded and nothing really phases me, but this is pretty … (I have no word to put here)
However this has got me thinking about how powerful secrets are and the effect they can have on an individual, whether kept and untold, burdening another with your secret or spread as gossip like wildfire. (Obviously I’m not talking about everyday secrets here like who you’re crushing on, shoplifting when you was 10 etc etc)
When you are told a secret, you are bound by a verbal contract with someone that you will keep it that, a secret. As you grow older and wiser you realise there are less and less people you can truly trust (as quoted by Benjamin Franklin), and less secrets are actually kept private.
Some people are rather weak minded and mentally cannot cope with the pressure. Some people just love a gossip, after all its one of the easiest ways to flow a conversation. Some people just don’t care for other people’s private lives, we all have our own to deal with right. I always think before I take it upon myself to burden another with a secret; Do they need to know? What are the chances of it getting out if I tell them? Do they need the hassle of knowing what I’m going to tell them? What effects will it have on their live’s by knowing? … Most of the time I come to the conclusion that I’d rather keep most things to myself, life’s just easier that way!

Expectations based on assumptions can lead to your biggest downfalls.
Expectations based on assumptions can lead to your biggest downfalls. Sometimes when things are left unsaid or unanswered we assume our own versions of reality and expect outcomes which are unrealistic and which deviate from the course nature’s taking. Recently I’ve found that to take this path and alter your own perception of what is real can be extremely demoralising, mentally exhausting and leaves you with a weird sense of confusion when you snap back to reality. But what are you to do when your inner self can build up such an illusion over such a short space of time, when the voice inside your head remains so clear and omniscient?
If there’s one thing that my latest endeavour has taught me, for all of my failures, all of my un-reached expectations, all of my tasks and goals I haven’t achieved, it’s that I am the single element holding myself back. In almost every situation I can recall, I could have altered the outcome for the better by acting in a different way. I think back to certain scenarios to try and understand why I did or didn’t do certain things or I try and understand how I’ve ended up at the conclusion of a certain event, it always come down to the fact that I either listened to myself, or I lost an argument with myself and talked myself out of doing something. I lost an argument with myself and talked myself out of doing something. Let that sink in for a second. Even as I wrote that line, I thought, how does that make sense? I understand the concept of debating options with yourself internally or verbally, but why do I always choose the wrong option and why is it a persistent battle in my head? Is there more than one voice I’m debating with, they all sound the same!
Maybe this new found understanding, that I am the only restriction to my own happiness and success, is the first step of acceptance and progression and I can start to finally move forward and work around this? Or maybe this new found understanding of the mess that’s in my head is finally confirmation that I’m crazy?!
I guess we’re all a little crazy inside.
I hope you all have an adventurous and successful 2019!
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
“Knowledge speaks, but Wisdom listens.” Jimi Hendrix
“A Wise person knows that there is something to learn from everyone” – Poster Quote (Not sure the originator)
The first is one of my favourite quotes, and one I tend to adhere to as much as possible. Mainly because it speaks so many truths. I’m an avid listener rather than a talker (mainly because I hate the sound of my own voice :D), to spread knowledge is great but to broaden the horizons of your own knowledge is much is greater, knowledge is power after all!
I slightly disagree with the second; I would say a knowledgeable person knows there is something to be learned from everyone. Where-as a wise person would know how to use that information to either aide themselves or others with the new acquired information. But yes you can learn so much from other people, with just a little in depth observation, whether in conversation, watching them perform an act or just in a more general sense.
If Knowledge is information or a tool, then Wisdom is the understanding and application of said information or the craft within which you use said tool.
Unfortunately we can gain a lifetime of knowledge, yet never see the wisdom in it.
Just a little shout out to all my Single friends and bloggers. I hope you have an amazing day on yet another hyped up, commercialised day of worship to another mystical glorious Saint!
Just because you’re ‘alone’ today doesn’t make you any less of a person. You keep being the best YOU that you can be and I’m sure someone will come along one day and show you how much they love and worship you every day, not just on Valentine’s Day!
I don’t look at people celebrating today with their partners with distaste, just don’t forget to not neglect your significant others for the other 364 days in the year (for a start it’s cheaper on any other day 😉 )
Have you ever come across a term or rule that we all follow but never knew about?
So, the other day I was traipsing through the World Wide Web as you do, and I came across an historic rule in which we all live by in the way we structure our sentences. Now the complex derivative of the alphabet and language has always astonished me. It just doesn’t seemingly make sense in my head that at some point in time communication and the symbolism of lines that create these words and letters could just come to be.
Anyway, on my travels I came across this excerpt from a book called: The Elements of Eloquence (catchy huh!) in which it denotes that;
“Adjectives in English absolutely have to be in this order: opinion-size-age-shape-colour-origin-material-purpose Noun. So you can have a lovely little old rectangular green French silver whittling knife. But if you mess with that word order in the slightest you’ll sound like a maniac. It’s an odd thing that every English speaker uses that list, but almost none of us could write it out.”
Being someone with a particularly dirty mind, my first thought was; “So that’s why I fucking love cake, and don’t love fucking cake?!” Excuse my French, but I did make myself chuckle!
Now for something that I’d never heard of, or even thought about, it makes complete sense. I was pretty fascinated that there are rules out there that everybody follows without even knowing it and if you were to disobey that rule then everybody would know instantly. After this I went on and did a little research and realised that there really are an amazing number of subtle techniques and applications to speaking English that must make it so difficult for outsiders to learn! It’s the subtle difference’s like when we record a record or present a present or tell a rebel to rebel. It’s a difference that is very hard for people to learn, and is the main reason that, in a strong French accent, there’s no difference between happiness and a penis.
Solitude – the state or situation of being alone.
– lonely or uninhabited place.
The definitions you’d find on the Internet. For me I couldn’t disagree more. I spend most of my time in the company of others; I work in an office through the week and at night and weekends I am socialising with friends and family almost all of the time.
I may be alone when in solitude but I certainly do not find it lonely or subdued, in fact quite the opposite. When I’m alone it’s a great time for my mind to wander and start reflecting, reminiscing and analysing current, future and past events or situations. It’s almost the only time that I can find peace and tranquillity within myself.
Of course to spend an eternity in solitude would be quite dismal and depressing but in the circumstances of my life I do find it helps to assuage any grief or tension.
“Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.” – Bill gates
“Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who will argue with you.” – John wooden
We, as a group, find that surrounding yourself with individuals that think to a higher intellect, most discussions will get picked apart and debated, whether you’re correct or not. I find this greatly improves and aides in decision making, as you’re naturally used to picking apart and analysing things in many different styles and at the very least you gain an insight to how other peoples minds work in life; even when the answer is put in front of someone and explained, they may still have a completely different outlook to you.
Being smart is taken for granted a lot more than we account for. Being smart isn’t always being clever, and you mustn’t take for granted the fact that because you’re right; you always will be. Sometimes we forget that the journey we’re on can change at any second. You never know when the tables are going to turn and the shoe will be on the other foot. Just because we’ve been successful before, doesn’t mean we always will be. Once we’ve achieved something and we start progressing in a direction we often think that because we’ve put the hard work and dedication to get to this point you no longer need that commitment to your cause. As you all know this process of thought seldom works and we find ourselves becoming complacent and inconsistent. Of course, it’s difficult to maintain a motivated approach to cause 24/7, I often find myself procrastinating and deviating from the task at hand, after all there is now so many distractions in life to deter you. I think that’s one of the biggest problems in life, we all get so caught up in the general day-to-day activities of the norm we forget about the bigger picture.
Remain humble, remain grounded.
It’s funny, we spend such a small amount of time in this crazy messed up world. Yet we always find ourselves letting it slip away in such a preposterous manner it’s uncanny. Too much we dwell on the past, on issues that when you look back weren’t all that much of an issue and for what??
“So many people get involved with carrying grudges and having these moral battles with people, where they cast themselves as the righteous and the other guy is the dirtbag. They waste tons of energy on it, create all kinds of darkness around themselves and the other person. It gets you nothing.” – Stephen J Cannell
So I recently unearthed a little gem called Poor Richard’s Almanac, by Benjamin Franklin, a collection of periodicals were issued from 1732 to 1757. They contain humour, information, and proverbial wisdom. Some of the quotes seem really ahead of their time, definitely a high recommendation!
“If you would not be forgotten
As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worth reading,
Or do things worth the writing.”
– Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanack 1738
