When you want to change something in your life it is a very common experience to say that you couldn’t do what you want to do because you would up set someone or that person might be offended or another might think badly of you. The result of all this thinking on your part is that you don’t ever get around to doing the thing you really would like to be doing.

But sometimes we all forget that another person may see the world in a different way to us. The expression about getting into someone else’s shoes is not necessarily to be taken literally although there was a well known actress who found that in order to get into character she had to first get the shoes of the character onto her feet.

However, what the phrase usually means is that you must imagine seeing the world through that other person’s eyes and with their experience of life. You can get a sense of this by standing in a different place and saying to yourself ‘I’m seeing the world through so and so’s eyes now.’ Counsellors use this technique by getting their client to sit in a chair which represents a person and see the world through the eyes of him or her. It’s useful to do this when you have a disagreement with someone and don’t understand why that person won’t understand your point of view.

You may find by stepping into their shoes you can understand their objections. When you understand this you can proceed to reach an agreement with them because when you demonstrate to them that you really understand where they are coming from then they will be more open to understanding your point of view too.

In the end you must consider whether the most important thing in your life is pleasing other people or doing whatever it is that you really want to do. When you get to the end of your life will you say to yourself that at least you tried not to upset anyone. Or will you be able to say that maybe you upset a person or two along the way but at least you did all those things you really wanted to do! It’s your choice whether you live for yourself or entirely for other people. Of course ideally it is great if you can find the balance between fulfilling your won needs and not upsetting too many along the way either.

Dry Country
news live
Image by Steve Dorman
Bad news for many Victorian farmers down near where my folks live. Years of successive droughts have left paddocks bare and many farmers too debt ridden to purchase feed for their dairy cows. Praying that these folks get several fat years. They could use it. Not just in Victoria either, but huge areas of NSW and other parts of the country as well. I’m glad we have several rural chaplains travelling throughout these areas as well as the Flying Padre in the outback.
Water, we don’t think about it much in the city. Except when a pipe bursts and we can’t fill the kettle for a couple of hours. But for many people and livestock in rural and outback Australia. It truly is a precious resource.

When investing in something exciting like a new television, the last thing you want to happen is for technical jargon to take the edge off and put a dampener on things, so here is a jargon buster specifically for LCD, Plasma, High Definition and LED TVs:

LCD â?? Liquid Crystal Display. The technology used to create some flat screen televisions which allows for clear and crisp images whether watching television or playing games through your TV.

LED â?? Light Emitting Diode. Light Emitting Diodes are used in conjunction with LCD technology to give a bright, backlit image which is clear and visible no matter what the surrounding light conditions are like.

HD â?? High Definition. HD produces significantly better picture quality than SD (Standard Definition) which all televisions used to fall under. This is because it has one to two million pixels per frame, approximately five times that of SD, meaning the picture quality is sharper, clearer and more lifelike.

HD Ready â?? This means that the television, computer monitor or laptop you’re buying supports High Definition technology and you will be able to enjoy those programmes and games which are filmed in HD and offer a more realistic viewing experience.

Plasma â?? Technology which has allowed television screens to become bigger and bigger without losing picture quality in the process. Plasma TVs are still the preferred choice for those opting to buy a TV which is larger than 42 inches in diameter.

Wi-Fi ready â?? Wireless Fidelity. The name given to a device which can connect wirelessly to the internet, most commonly associated with laptops and mobile devices, but can now be applied to any device which can be used to connect to the internet, including televisions that are Wi-Fi ready.

Resolution â?? This refers to the number of pixels per frame; the more pixels there are per frame, the higher the resolution and the better the picture quality.

3D DNR â?? 3D Digital Noise Reduction. This is a feature which is built into many televisions to reduce picture grain and emit as clear a picture as possible.

50Hz / 100Hz â?? The frequency at which the electrical current is transmitted to the user from the power source; the faster the frequency, the clearer and more flicker-free image the television will relay to you.

IPS â?? In Plane Switching. This was developed in the late 1990s as a way to overcome the limited viewing angle of flat screens on televisions, laptops and so on, as well as to improve poor colour reproduction. Due to the expense of this technology, it was initially reserved for monitors used by people such as graphic designers but as the price dropped, the technology has been adopted in mainstream products, for example Panasonic LCD TVs incorporate this technology, allowing them to produce a high quality image without the excessive energy consumption that the original IPS technology used.

DLNA certified â?? Digital Living Network Alliance. Having this certification means that the manufacturer has signed up to an alliance which means they are offering consumers standardised ways to operate technology and means their items are as compatible as possible with other devices.

HDMI â?? High Definition Multimedia Interface. A compact interface for transmitting uncompressed audio or video data; this is a way of connecting everything from Blu-Ray and DVD players, to games consoles and set top boxes, to your digital television or computer monitor. Digital TVs will often have up to four HDMI connections.

Check the product specifications online for all the information you need before you decide whether LCD TVs or Plasma TVs are right for you.
