"I have always been a person who plays upon the subtle nuances of words and meaning, but I've never quite known whether the colloquialism 'a kick up the backside' means a healthy nudge or a ball-breaking experience.
Let's face it, there are times in our lives when lethargy creeps into our behaviour pattern and the only way out of it might prove to be a good old-fashioned kick up the backside to get us back on track!
I'm a firm believer in 'horses for courses.' I know that we are all made differently and deal with our trials and tribulations in a variety of different ways, but there are times in all of our lives when lethargy and depression are capable of marooning us in a cesspit of our own composted morosity.
It is at such times when the true friend and the one person who is most likely to best help you move on will be the one prepared to move you in the right direction.
I once experienced a similar difficulty in understanding the subtle difference between 'complete' and 'finished'. I now know. Marry the right person and you'll feel 'complete', but marry the wrong person and you will be 'finished.' However, allow the right marriage partner to catch you with the wrong marriage partner and you'll be 'completely finished.' " William Forde: January 29th, 2014.
