In case you’re wondering here’s my answerslogo_your_preferences_final

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. wordsShoe
  2. Headphones
  3. Hairdresser
  4. Spreadsheet
  5. Love
  6. Heater
  7. Dishes
  8. Remote
  9. Paper
  10. Black


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. Small
  2. Music
  3. Style
  4. Format
  5. Family
  6. Winter
  7. Food
  8. Control
  9. Plane
  10. Bag


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!

What week this has been! Unfortunately on all fronts it has been a week full of mostly lows, but the odd high in amongst it.

The week started off badly at work when I got told the project I’ve been working on for the last 15 months has basically been put on hold and then in the afternoon had a very negative meeting – Monday was such a demotivating day (Read all about it in Demotivation).

Tuesday I was only at work in the morning. That sounds good but the whole morning was taken up with another meeting which I thought would end up being a negative and argumentative meeting, however I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out to be an ok meeting after all – all thanks I think to the meeting facilitator, who did an excellent job!

Tuesday afternoon saw me at the hospital with hubby. He’s been off work for a few weeks and so we were hoping for answers or solutions, however it seems there’s no quick fix, so an increase in meds was prescribed. Tuesday night was the fist night of the increased meds, and unfortunately since then, hubby seems to be as unwell as he was when he was first off. This is getting both of us down and I must admit I’m finding it quick stressful as I’ve not really been feeling to good myself but have had to keep going for hubby’s sake.

Wednesday at work was a strange day, I was feeling quite sore when I got to work, only to discover we had a team meeting to go to…they are always such a highlight in everyone’s diary…not! Meeting over and still not feeling great. Had a good chat with a colleague and offered support and someone to listen if ever it was needed – Hopefully I am able to support my colleague through a time of difficulty. I pray God will help me to be what my colleagues need me to be. The rest of the day seemed to take about 2 days to pass – The work I was doing was not exactly inspiring so I suspect that had something to do with the clock seeming to be on a go slow!

Thursday feeling better but tired after hubby had a particularly restless night, but made it to work happy that it was the last working day of the week. Got a phone call about midday from home to tell me our iPad had arrived! Woohoo! But I still had another half day to go at work 😦

One of my colleagues kept trying to convince me to go home at lunchtime and get the iPad and then bring it into office in the afternoon. I declined as I pointed out if I went home at lunchtime I wouldn’t come back in the afternoon! I was just going to have to wait a few more hours to get home to my new iPad.

Thursday night was iPad night…what an amazing bit of technology! We both already have iPod Touch’s, however the iPad was just so much better. Great size, not too heavy, fantastic graphics and screen resolution, speedy internet connectivity, wonderful interface, and finally some great apps to put on it! All in all, definitely worth the money – I’m sure the iPad will become the “in-thing” in Apple products just like the iPhone has.

Thursday night saw hubby being really unwell again, so neither of us got much sleep. So when the alarm when off this morning, guess what I did? I reset it and went back to sleep for another hour! N.B. No work today, it’s a bank holiday here 🙂

Once I finally got up, I did some housework and then headed over to Mum and Dad’s before I went to the hairdressers. Another low point of the week, Dad seems to be getting worse each time I see or talk to him and is getting more arguemental with us, particularly my Mum which just isn’t my Dad. In addition his memory seems to be deteriorating quickly and he just seems to want to sleep all the time. It’s so sad to see. Mum’s putting on a brave face but it must be so very hard for her. I really wish I could do more.

It now Friday night and I’m totally shattered…but not too tired to have another play with the iPad!

I hope your week has been full of more highs than lows. If not, remember whatever you’re problems, God is with you!

I was at the hairdressers today. While I was sitting waiting to get my hair cut after it was washed, I started asking myself a few questions

  1. How often do you get your hair cut?
  2. How often do you change your hairstyle?
  3. How often do you wish your hair was a different colour or style than what it is?
Here’s my answers, are they similar to your’s?
  1. every 5-6 weeks
  2. every few years
  3. all the time!

I then got to thinking, just how many haircuts that is in a year…a lot! And what about how many that would be in my lifetime. Wow!

So we all go to the hairdressers quite frequently, what about new clothes, how often do you buy yourself new clothes?

Maybe in the current economic climate you aren’t able to do any of the about as frequently as you used to. However I’m sure you’ll still plan when you’re going to get your haircut, and when your next going to buy ne clothes.

I know you’re probably wondering where I’m going with this…well what struck me while I was at te hairdressers was how much time and how much time to I put aside to allow God to restyle me into the person He wants/needs me to be?

A very deep question, and one which is not the easiest one to answer – not because I don’t know the answer, but simply because I know my answer is not what God wants it to be!

What’s your answer? If you find you are not putting aside time each day to listen to God speaking to you (not just time for you to speak to God), you, like me, need to allow more time for God to speak to you.

So next time you’re getting a haircut, or buying new clothes, remember that as well as looking after your physical appearance, you need to look after your spiritual life too – you can only do that by spending time with God, talking and listening to Him.
