Have you ever played the game where you are presented with a tray containing a number of items, which you are then given a small amount of time to memorise. The tray is then either covered so that you are then required to list as many of the items on the tray as you can remember, or the tray is taken away one item removed and then brought back to you so you them have to identify which item has been taken away.

Depending on the number of items you are required to memorise this game can either be quite straight forward or can be very difficult. Although having said that, I have found it’s the folk that are most observant that tend to be best at this game.

MissingHow about if it’s a group of people and someone who is normally there isn’t there? How quickly, if at all, do you notice their absence? I guess it probably depends on your relationship with the “missing” person. i.e. If it’s someone you’re close to you probably notice quite quickly, however if it’s just someone you simply know to see, but don’t really know them, you’re probably less likely to notice if they aren’t there.

That all seems fine doesn’t it as someone else will notice these people  who you don’t really know, aren’t there…but will they? What if that person isn’t close with anyone else, does that mean their absence would go unnoticed, and no-one would consider checking if they are ok?

Maybe we all need to open our eyes more and pay more attention to those around us, as no-one’s absence from a regular event should go unnoticed, and we certainly shouldn’t assume someone else will check on them.

Everyone needs to feel needed and cared for so if someone can be “missing” but no-one notices, or contacts them it’s easy to understand why people can feel like an outsider. This can seem even worse to the person when it’s highlighted when others are “missing” that many people missing them and contacted them. when this happens is it really a surprise that some people feel like outsiders and feel like no-one cares about them?

When it comes to competitions, everyone wants to win don’t they, even if they won’t admit it! That’s why when it comes to our faith in God, we should be just as determined, if not more determined, to win. i.e. To live our lives as God wants us to, and to help spread His message.

If we want to have victory, we have to act like we really believe Jesus is alive & be determined to have the life He wants us to have ~ Joyce Meyer

 

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one. So as usual I’m going to throw some words at you  and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

So here goes…

  1. wordsTaxi
  2. Plastic bag
  3. Pepsi
  4. Phone
  5. Foundation
  6. Accident
  7. Pedometer
  8. Menu
  9. Satellite
  10. Headphones

 

So how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. Night out
  2. 5p charge
  3. Sugar
  4. Ringtone
  5. Building
  6. Death
  7. Exercise
  8. Choices
  9. Channels
  10. Loud

 

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of my answers confuse you? Did any of your own answers confuse you?

I’ve said in previous word association posts that I find I get a bit stressed when I’m doing them as I put a lot of pressure on myself not to over think my answers! Are you relaxed when you do them or do you find it stressful too?

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

By the way, if you want me to explain any of my answers, just ask!
