October 15th – Two Williams

One news story that has caught my attention lately is the one regarding Prince William and the comments he made following William Shatner’s recent trip into space.

According to this story , Prince William has made public comments chastising private companies, operated by private individual for spending their money and using their resources, to advance space travel.   

In my view – 

  • Private individuals and private companies have every right to spend their money in any legal manner which  they see fit.   Personally,  I am always happy to see that they are SPENDING it and returning it to the overall economy rather than hoarding it. (Which would also be their right)
  • It is hardly fair or reasonable for any media outlet to pronounce Prince William a ‘keen environmentalist’  while suggesting that men like Jeff Bezos, William Shatner, Richard Branson, and Elon Musk are any less concerned about the environment.   All of them have invested time and money on environmental and other worthy causes – their own time and their own money.       What they are doing now may well help the environment and the overall  future well-being of mankind.  I doubt if any of us, including Prince William, are in any position to judge at this point.
  • I have always had the utmost respect for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles.  They have served England, and the world,  graciously  through their many social and environmental endeavours with  respect, humility, kindness, and compassion for others.  I hope that in time,  Charles’ sons and daughters-in-law will learn from their example and start following in their footsteps.  

That is it for today! The news and my views.

Day 12 – In Good Company

Reading through today’s newsfeed, it would seem I am not the only one who has been looking for magic this month – and finding it. Lord Richard Branson made his first trip into space this week and apparently he found the experience magical, according to this report. 💞

I think that it is too cool that Lord Branson chose the word ‘magical‘ to describe his space experience. He is a wealthy, successful, powerful man. What he says matters because people around the globe listen to him. He is the type of person who inspires people to follow his lead – by his words and by the way he lives his life.

I totally believe that people find what they look for in life and that obviously Lord Branson is a great example of someone who looks for and finds the best.

It is rather funny (not in the haha way but in the peculiar type of way), but I did not come by my belief from observing the happy, hopeful, peaceful, optimistic, content people that I have known in my life. I came by this belief from taking note of the miserable people I have known or come across. I could write books about people who spend their entire lives searching for misery – and finding it! Anytime, anywhere – these people find misery! I must have been looking for these people because I found LOTS of them. For a while, a long while, I tried ‘fixing’ them when I found them. That didn’t work for them or me.

Ultimately, I decided to focus on fixing myself and my own life. This month, I decided to look for magic and to share the magic I find on my little blog. So here I am, doing what I set out to do. I hope you enjoy the moments I chose to share with you today. 💞

It is not a trip into space but I found magic in each and every moment. 😉

Have a great day! I hope to see you tomorrow!💞
