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. Breakfast
  2. Relationship
  3. Plant
  4. Box
  5. Slipper
  6. Box
  7. Vinyl
  8. Teapot
  9. Condemn
  10. Graphitewords

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. Cereal
  2. Friend
  3. Seed
  4. Delivery
  5. Winter
  6. Tick tock
  7. 78
  8. Yorkshire
  9. Fire
  10. Racket

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!

You’ve probably read the title of this blog post and thought I’m mad, haven’t we had more than enough rain!

Well hopefully as you read on I’ll clarify what I mean!

Look around you at the trees, flowers, plants – what do they need to flourish? Sunshine and rain.

Look at yourself, and the person you were in the past – maybe 10, 20, 30 years ago – Are you the same person today as you were then?

Speaking for myself, I can say with certainty that I am definitely a different person today than I was 10, 20 or 30 years ago. It’s not just because I’m obviously older now that I’m different, my outlook on life, on others and my relationships with others is different, and that’s because of the ‘rain‘ I’ve experienced in my life over the years.

The ‘rain’ we experience in our lives can be difficult to cope with at the time, but they are the times which build our character and give us real life experience, and therefore make us the person we are today.

So embrace the rain!

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you, and today, as the title of this post suggests, this word association is all about New Year and what it means to each of us. 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. Midnight
  2. Door bell
  3. Countdown
  4. January
  5. Annual leave
  6. Steak pie
  7. Scotland
  8. Snow
  9. Decorations
  10. Over-eating

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. Bells
  2. First footing
  3. …to Christmas!
  4. Sales
  5. End of January
  6. Dinner
  7. Shortbread
  8. Sledge
  9. Boxes
  10. Stuffed

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?

I chose some words we probably all associate with New Year as well as some that I suspect if you’re not Scottish, you won’t understand (including some of my answers), maybe it’s time to find out a bit more about our Scottish New Year traditions!

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, but as you’ll see from the title this is another Christmas word association today. It may be a Christmas edition word association, but it’s the same format, so 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. wordsTV advert
  2. Christmas shopping
  3. Bells
  4. Carol service
  5. Pudding
  6. Shepherd
  7. Star
  8. Christmas dinner
  9. Work
  10. Christmas cards

 

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. John Lewis
  2. Queues
  3. Watchnight service
  4. Nativity
  5. Snow bombe

Autumn is coming…actually it may already be here.

Already darker in the morning.

As for night time, the light’s on long before eight.

All around us nature is changing colour to show us autumn is well on its way.

As the night’s draw in, it’ll soon be time to turn the clocks back an hour.

And then it really will be autumn – the days will be shorter, the nights will be longer.

And we’ll be wondering what kind of winter we’re going to get.

A winter of storms, freezing temperatures and snow or just a cold winter with a few snow flurries.

As we can prepare for autumn and the onset of winter, we must remember that while we may be ready, many will find winter difficult as they struggle to keep warm and find enough food to eat.

All of us can do our bit to help those who will find winter difficult. All we have to do is offer them help.

Is it raining?

We associate rain with dull miserable days don’t we. But consider how you would think about a rainy day if you lived in a country where there is very little rain, where droughts are common, and crops fail to grow because of the lack of rain fall.

In those countries a rainy day is something to get excited about, to delight in, because it means the land is getting the much needed nourishment it requires.

So next time you’re complaining about the rain, think how lucky we are in this country that we have more than enough water to satisfy our needs! Having said that I would agree that if we could have a little less rain, then that would be even better!
