I’ve kept away from you,for quite a while have I not?So,did you miss me?Well,I did.But being bereft of inspiration can be a bane.Especially on someone like me.A Bruce Wayne underneath that cloak of a financial planner.Life is ironically boring when so many exciting things are happening.Like how my beloved Redbacks has to go through that upheaval of getting new players.It’s not so much about the movement of players,especially in this era of transfer dealings being ridiculously expounded.In my social context however,it’s more of players moving to play in other teams.No qualms about it,because I am an advocate of human rights.Free to play,free to go.But it’s the manner at which some individuals hasten their departures,that leaves a bitter taste in my mouth,which have me nodding in agreement with my theory that our next generation have a lot to make up.Apart from one,it was disappointing that a major part of the leaving players lacked the balls to perhaps,just bid a word of farewell.I mean,it’s as good as entering someone’s house,dining and shitting there,and having the audacity to just walk out the gates.Of course,my theory of free to play,free to go applies.What am saying is that,a usual,unassuming human being usually has that thing called decency of manners.It’s a rhetorical statement if we pinpoint such things to parenting or education,cause I never liked to blame both.Cause as Arsene Wenger and Fergie said,”If you are good enough,you are old enough.”Which in their case,might be neither.But I don’t blame such individuals.Being tenacious and zealous young men,it just means that they need to express their talents and egos on a platform where they are not stifled or confined to the rigid standings of middle aged men.It just means that they see,their man management and creative streaks are best exploited at a level,where they can pat themselves in the back everytime on a job well done,without having the figments of advices of middle aged men who do not know what they are talking about,after playing football for the number of years these young men have lived.It’s regrettable,that somehow,the analogy of blowing bubble is apt for this context.For these young men,are blowing a bubble big enough for them to encapsulate themselves in.
In football context,I usually reserve 4 or 5 lettered expletives for such players.Only because,it’s justified in footballing context.But on a more humane level,where friendships have been forged and implied upon,I usually say that it’s just an oversight for them.In the world of leadership as coined by John C Maxwell,we say that it’s just a matter of social integrity.In which case,is lacking.In men to men’s context,it’s just about having the balls.That ability to perhaps just withdraw from a team with a tad of friendly courtesy.But maybe I’m just asking too much.I mean,we live and we learn.We all know that the world is such.We should never confuse blame and self responsibility.Blame is what we do to ourselves when the whole world just does not seems right.Self responsibility is how we conduct ourselves to the whole world when we are not right.But,there’s no need to rush.We move forward,one step at a time.
The whole world does not stop rotating just because someone decided to walk backwards.
Anyway,on a lighter side of things,the baby is now officially over the two months threshold.He’s a grand 5kg.Heh.The wife’s been having a bit of ache everywhere carrying him.Me?I’m still the official BathMaster and MilkMaker.I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my weekends these days.Bringing the ‘lil one all over the island on modes of public transportations.Having strangers coo at him.Calling him cute,naughty,smart and other adjectives which would have sounded perfect on me too.Chinese and Causasians seem to have a ceratin affection for his wide eyes.The way he just laughs out aloud.He chuckles like as if he’s watching,”Whose Line Is It Anyway?”.He whines and cries like a typical Junior Redbackers.Without the tears.Just loud empty wailing.But,it’s laughable.He’s entitled to it cause he’s a baby,I figured.
Looking at him sometimes,leaves me in that adrenalin rush of hope and anticipation.Unknowingly to this small guy,he has two set of relatives to tap on,as the basis of family network.But,currently he only has one to tap on.Am not sure as of now,if it’s something bad,but I leave such affairs to the Lord above.That adrenalin of wanting to make sure my wife and boy is well provided in my absence,is overwhelming.If in any matter my absence precedes,I have to make sure that they are financially secured enough to not even consider the assistance of relatives.Hopefully,as time gathers,he’ll be acquainted with all his family members.It’s not a must,but it’s just a sense of social integrity I wish to instill in him.
Am gonna conduct my 2nd module of my financial seminar this coming 24th.I’ll be touching on Cashflow Management.Do let me know if anyone of you is interested in attending.
The more I am in the career,the more I’m convinced how misconstrued people’s perceptions are about finance,planning,wealth and everything else related to it.Some are just plain ignorant to the core.It’s a waste of time to even start discussing anything tangible or not.These are the group of people that will have their family members quarelling at courts to claim $200.I’m slowly moving away from such attachments.Anyway,the workshop is just to touch base with such issues.And this time around I’m seriously not interested in sugar coating my words to have it generally accepted by the masses.It does not do them a world of good.I know just how well paid,preachers and speakers who speaks the lingo of the masses.That’s why,the community is stuck in that doldrums of contentment and happiness and peace and serenity.That’s where the blessings for all concept will come about.I can no longer be the self hypocritical speaker,who speaks on the basis of goodwill,but to the detriments of the masses and my clients.Doctors have to give the bitter medicine.
Oh well,we’ll see how it goes.Make a date with me on the 24th.It’ll be from 10 to 1.
