So I just left my office and went for a walk along the seafront on the idyllic sun kissed Costa Blanca. Early May late afternoon sun shining temperature mid 20s celsius virtually no wind in other words a beautiful day!

But before we expand on the rubric it is important to note that living and working in Asia for over 18 years taught me so much, not least what I observed in everyday walks of life. Take China – Thailand – Japan – Indonesia et al… in fact every country in the Orient it is normal to find men and women continuing to work well into old age like 70 – 80 and 90 plus years of age. Why is this? First and foremost is that all countries in Asia do not operate as nanny states handing out large pensions on a weekly basis along with all the other perks like OAP rates when using public transport like buses – trains and more. Free health care on and on it goes… On this basis suffice to say folks if fit and able work into old age, but they take work as enjoyment – it is what they do to pay rent and put food on the table, plus of greater importance it all helps to keep them fit and healthy.

Some old fogey bumped into me and asked how my ailments were? I was somewhat taken aback as who wants to know what is wrong with me!

Well let me tell you that is all they talk about all health problems and/or getting as many handouts from their governments as possible! How negative is that – the opposite from the billions of folks who do not live in countries where they are spoon fed and provided for on every corner. Myself I don’t want any handouts I just want to work everyday – live a simple – keep fit – never moan about things I either do not have and/or cannot afford…

I much prefer the mental outlook and culture of billions around the world who are not spoon fed, they much prefer to work – be optimistic – never complain and simply enjoy life!
