    What mood are you in today??

    I have been working on a huge project since May 2009. As the project progressed, I agreed to incorporate a number of other major design changes into the project as it meant that it would save time, a huge amount of money and would half the resources required. Also, I love a challenge. The bigger the challenge, the bigger my smile. So, we are nearing the end of. We are at the implementation stage. In the 18 months that it has been going on, I have managed about 70 individuals across 17 functions to ensure that they focused on their aspect of the project so that we could get it done on time and within budget. This included doctors, engineers, marketing managers, regulatory specialists etc. So today was D-Day: the day all requirements were closed out. We had until the end of the year to complete this project but we will have the change implemented this Monday. So, it was all good until today.... someone sent me an email. It was sent directly to me and no one else was copied. It was from a production operative. The email was without any punctuation - no fullstops or commas. Basically, she said, in no uncertain terms, that I was not going to implement my change because she was not informed. I was going to forward it to her supervisor but then I decided to ignore it. If I did something about it, she'd probably be fired, or at the very least, given a stern warning. We live in uncertain times and I think we all need our jobs. People who use email for work need to understand that they are a great way for communication but a thoughtless comment can be extremely dangerous. I believe, in a business setting, all emails should be written with diplomacy, tact and consideration. An email should never been written when in a rage. If you are angry over something and you do write an email. Don't send it until you have calmed down and re-read it. You never know who might end up reading it. Despite the above, my mood is good. Why wouldn't I be ... I'm nearly 2 months ahead of schedule and well under budget! :-)

    I'm stressed out. Most of it is good stress. I'm extremely busy at the moment.... and it looks like I'll be busy with design change implementations for the whole of November. It's easy enough doing one's own work but managing groups of individuals across numerous functions can be quite an ordeal but, so far so good. I'm just looking forward to mid December because I'll be on vacation for a whole month.... and a much needed break it will be! And then when I come back in the New Year, it will be whole new ball game for me...! So, I guess, this stress will be worth it.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying there isn't a God. And I'm not saying that one should not have faith. I am simply saying that prayer is used as a tool by religions. It's the most powerful tool they have. I do have problems with blind faith because faith, by definition, is hope governed by assurances. The term faith has lost it's meaning because people mix hope and faith up. They are similar but very different. For example: If you went for a job interview, someone might say to you: "Have faith, zhiv. You'll get the job." but that is not faith, that is just hope. You can hope you get the job and your friend is hoping you will get it too. But there is nothing assured that you will get the job, so that is not faith. On the otherhand, if you studied really hard for an exam and you did the exam and you answered the questions confidently, you can have faith that you will passs. Why? Because you have the assurance that your hard work in your studies will ensure that you will pass the exam especially since you answered the questions confidently. This can help people understand faith in terms of religion.... faith is the assurances of your hope.... if you pray that your friend or relative will get better from an illness that is terminal, that is simply hope because you have no assurance they will get better. On the otherhand, if your friend or relative has an illness and your doctor says that it's treatable, you can pray that it will be a speedy recover because you have faith that they will recover because you have the assurance from the doctor. If you don't believe me that this is the definition of faith, you can find the only definition of the word in Hebrews 11:1. As for living on this planet a short time: who, in their right mind, wants to die? I say "in their right mind", because tragically, some people do want to die. And even some of those hope that they will go somewhere better. The fact of the matter is: Eternity is built into our psyche. As Freddy Mercury once sung: "Who wants to live forever?" I know I do but I have no assurances that I will so I hope that when this life is over, maybe God will remember me. If not, I've lost nothing: I experienced this life, enjoyed it and if I become non-existent, I have nothing to worry about, do I?

    [quote name='Zhivvy wrote: illumination70'] I'm depressed since a member of my family has been diagnosed with cancer and to top it off a friend of the family died yesterday. The part which really stinks is I prayed for both of them which is why I feel majorly dissed. So sorry to hear this Illum. I understand you feeling angry about this happening after your ernest prayers, but God moves in ways which we don't always understand - I hope you soon begin to feel that your prayers were head, but just didn't get answered in the way you wanted. {{hugs}} Sorry Zhiv and Illum... I don't want to detract from why Illum is feeling depressed. My heart goes out to her esp when she has lost a loved one in death. But I feel very strongly about the next point I'm about to make and I recommend that you don't read it unless you are able to handle the horrible truth about prayer. Stop reading now if you can't. Prayer is simply a form of meditation. Almost all religions require their followers to partake in prayer. Why? Because there is nothing more powerful than self-meditative conversion. When you pray, you are talking to yourself, either out loud, to yourself, or in mumbles. When you talk to yourself, you can convince yourself of anything, especially when you think that what you are praying for will come true. If it comes true, you put it down as an "act of God" and so you become more steadfast in your belief - there is nothing more powerful than prayer to convince you that your beliefs are truth when you think that God listened to your prayer when you see something you asked for coming true. But then what about when your prayers aren't heard ... or you think they were not heard, as in the case of Illum? Well, religions have an answer for that too - they say exactly what you said, Zhiv: "God moves in ways we don't understand ... [he] just didn't ... answer [it] in the way you wanted". How convenient. The faithful look for something even remotely related to what they prayed for and they put it down as an "act of God" and so convince themselves that God listened but answered the prayer differently to the way they thought He would. Ask yourself the question: If God listens to prayers then are all religions right? Think about it, because it turns out that every religious person, no matter their religious affiliation, believes that God listens to their prayers. If God listens to all prayers, God has no religious affiliation. If God has no religious affiliation, why do people think their religion is more right than another? Or maybe the dark reality is that prayers aren't heard, prayers aren't listened to ... but people believe in blind hope that maybe he does and they yearn to affiliate their requests in prayer with coincidences in life. Example: If you prayed for 10 years every day to win the lottery, and you did the lottery every weekend, the likelihood of you winning the lottery is quite high. If you did win, and you were a religious person, you would probably put it down as an act of God. But the reality of it is that if you never prayed and yet did the lottery every weekend for 10 years, the chances of you winning are the same. Did God answer your prayer... even though you never prayed? If you prayed to God to try and help someone get better and they did, you would most likely put it down as an act of God. In contrast, if they didn't get better, how is God going to answer your prayer in a way that you didn't expect? That person is gone and is never coming back so your prayer is never answered and he can never answer it another way. So was your prayer listened to in either scenario? Most likely not. If the person got better, it was simply a coincidence.

    [quote name='Zhivvy wrote: n2u274 wrote: maggie18patchwork']Have a great time, can't wait to see what BTB gets up to... hope he behaves and doesn't embarrass you too much!!!! Whatever gets him up to ... when he is naughty, I'm sure its more than the face that turns red. (Since you are in Ireland, when I mentioned not having Irish in me, I was not talking about my ancestry) He is being good but is a bit cheeky at times lol!!!! And Surrenders I think that every woman should be lucky enough to have a bit of Irish in them!!!

    I'm in a mind-reading mood today - this morning as I was getting breakfast, I went up to my colleague and started singing "All I Want Is You" in her ear... she said: "How weird. I was just thinking that song in my head!" Later on I was talking to another girl about kangaroos (long story) and I said I was just imagining one in a bomber jacket. She replies, "How weird. I was thinking the exact same thing!" There were a couple more like that today but they are not as interesting.
