Cannot help but ponder on the subject, thats mainly because the Operational liquidity of the Pondo has of recent times been pulled in about 20 different directions. Some people say that what you receive in life is a result of what you do, KARMA and i will say, I am not a believer in that particular faith, if thats what you wish to call it.
Like wise, neither am I a believer in, everything is under your control, your actions and or decisions, yeild the end result. Well to a certain degree they most assuredly do, but thats possibly a 50% item in my book. Its the RADICALS, the free floating, structured events taking place just over the horizon that are additionally, shaping the weather pattern of your future. Call it a storm!.
Like most storms, there are certain actions you can effect, pre its arrival, some of these are hurried last minute movements, others, like perhaps saving, have been slowly building up and in the hope its enough to see you through what you forsee as the EVENT, still, not knowing exactly what type of storm will arrive and what directions it will assault you kingdom ( family) from.
I read somewhere recently that a significant portions of australian families had enough financial liquidity to survive for a MONTH..thats right, 30 fucking days, one mortgage payment, 2 or three shops for groceries and pay two or three utilities bills.
Thats pretty fucking scary when you really think about the consequences of NOT having that pay cheque roll in.
I guess its..just the way it is, certainly the 5 month holiday last year was an event that ensured the piggy bank got cleaned out, at that point, well actually before that point I sold the motorbike..that nearly fkn killed me, and what surprised me even more was that Missus H was also as unimpressed about me having to get rid of it, thats becuase she knew just how long we had worked to get the fkn thing .
BUT, thats the breaks, the bike added another buffer of just over a month, call it good fortune or good forsight on my behalf, well, actually, I just wanted that buffer, to cover the ” maybe it might happen”. And guess what..it nearly did, we ran down to the wire on that one.
What then takes place and here is where I suspect that especially politicioans miss the fkn ball game completely, is that for every month you are out of work, it takes, as a minimum, by HAVOCKS slide rule, TWO months to catch up. If you do the quick math on that, it takes a fkn long time, all the while, the juggeling act is going on and the head is working slightly over time.
Whats the trick, aside from perehaps winning tatts or having a BIG bank account through tight fiscal operation.. well in terms of sanity.
Its compartmentalisation of whats going on around you, trying, without really botteling up shit, to ensure it doesn’t over flow into other area’s and I mean emotionally. The financial element will touch every person in the family unit whether you like it or not and with that comes a certain amount of emotional disturbance..tension and certainly without a shadow of a doubt..conflict.
But if you can keep, those bubbling, turning, keep you awake at night ..what if, emotions in a degree of check, it will make for a slightly smoother ride. Plus…there is another big bonus, you might, just might be able to keep the family intact.
YEAH!, thats one you do not hear much about and its the central fucking theme of thios here post. NO..H is not having any issues along those lines thank fkn Christ!…but I know of three immediate families who are, unfortunately, what is already a tight situation, fraught with numerous pit falls, rapidly spirals out of control. Its almost assured emotional and financial destruction of the adults and Christ knows what sort of scarring on the kids if there are any.
I dont have the answers…but, like i said, if you can, at least between the pair of you, stave of the emotional meltdown you have half a chance..trouble is, asistance in this area is thin and whats even worse..its like depressions and it is when you really look at it, and its NOT TALKED ABOUT!.
Pitty the gummit fails to really notice or even talk about it, I suspect the hidden cost is far far greater than we can imagine, and the main reason, is that its instilled in the male Psyc from early on…You be the man, you keep it too yourself, you are the provider and ya ya ya…see how it starts..
Anyways, I now I have spent many nights pondering and playing with the what if’s, not letting the good missus H know whats running through the head or JUST how close to impending doom i think we might be……and thats not a good thing folks, I think the only thing it might do for you,, is accelerate the date with the dirt and THATS NOT THE OBJECT OF THE EXERCISE!.
Anyways..its been running through my head for a few days now, and I just thought I might put out there some of the thoughts and so forth.
