  1. Desiderata 6th July 2020 - Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy. Max Ehrmann, "Desiderata", 1927

Usually someone comes along on the comments and lets me know, or it's an original quote from the movie. Dunno. The quote made me look back at tough times in my life - and I think it's an explanation or partial explanation (of course there's other factors that make us depressed). We tend to predict the future based on what happened in the past. We tend to feel happier with a "secure" future, and less happy without. Uncertainty feeds into this. With the caveat, that the future doesn't really exist, it's a mental construction (ie we don't know for sure what the future will be, it's just degrees of certainty or uncertainty.)
  3. Acceptance, anger, Bargaining, denial, depression, don charisma, doncharisma, doncharisma.com, grief, 5 stages of grief Stages Of Grief (And Loss) 13th May 2020 - I can't remember if I blogged about this before, I first heard about it in the movie "The Bucket List" with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, who's characters were both terminally ill with cancer, and they eventually made friends and had some adventures together. It's a nice film, well worth a watch. In the movie, they talk about the 5 stages of grief which I think originated with Elizabeth Kubler Ross
  4. graffiti,art,color,painting,artistic,paradox,creative,nowhere,DON CHARISMA COVID-19 Plague – The Lockdown Vs Open-Up Paradox 5th May 2020 - Lockdown quite possibly could cause the biggest global meltdown in human history, a cure worse than the disease. Opening things back up has the potential risk of the biggest loss of human life we've ever experienced. So hence a paradox. My hope is that rational, clever people will find a solution, that resolves this paradox. They probably won't be communists or communist controlled organisations, more likely people like Trump and Johnson in USA and UK. Sorry I don't know the answer for other countries. My lean is towards opening things back up, with caution, but urgently now. Human life is precious, but in balance we need to be able to feed ourselves, and our loved ones - and have a future - And feed the elderly, sick, infirm etc - we can't care for our most vulnerable if we're "just surviving" or worse ourselves.

  6. DonCharisma.com, Don Charisma, Three Trolls-R-Us Can’t You Write Your Own Original Material? Quoting Einstein Has Been Done! 4th May 2020 - The silver lining, the emotional alchemy - as I've said a million times on this blog - is they never cease to give me something to blog about, and it's made me quite popular.

Or in other words, the things you're passionate about doing, and love doing. Even better if you have competency at them.
  11. Richard Branson, DON CHARISMA Strip Richard Branson Of His Knighthood – Change.org 24th April 2020 - I used to look up to the man. But since he bought my mortgage company after the 2008/Lehman Brothers crisis, they have set their interest rate at an extreme profit margin, all whilst interest rates have been historically low (like close to zero). For more than 12 years now I've been paying a huge premium over the Bank Of England's base rate, straight into Richard Branson's pocket. It's one of the reasons I've personally struggled financially ever since 2008 - whilst Richard has his fingers in a number of pies, including his own island. Bouncing around in his private jets and floating around in Bentleys, living the life of Riley.

  25. BitChute.com Logo, DON CHARISMA Don Charisma Added To Bitchute 30th March 2020 - The primary purpose of opening the channel on BitChute is free speech. I believe people should be able to say what they want to say. Censoring for partisanship reasons, ie basically totalitarianism - is essentially the highway to hell - some seem to have forgotten lessons we learn't under totalitarianism despot rule, in the present and not that distant past - Russia, Cambodia, China etc, and currently Venezuela. The death toll is said to be in the 100s of millions, people were murdered and some starved to death. If you need a reminder watch "The Killing Fields" or read George Orwell's "1984", and other works. Somewhat ironically, from what I understand Orwell was a leftist.
