Memories: how will you look back?

I write this as the old year disappears and tonight at midnight a brand new year will start.

Traditionally this is a time of memories.  A time to look back and remember what good and bad happened over the past year.  Perhaps to wonder what we could have done better, but hopefully to celebrate what we did spectacularly well.

Writing gives insights into how each writer will look back.  Which are you?

Did you spend too much?

In the Western world, the week after Christmas is a time of spending.

Shops offer sales and shoppers push, shove and stand in line for hours if necessary to get bargains.

What in writing will show who is likely to be an overly-avid post-Christmas shopper?  Here are a few strokes to consider. Continue reading

Did you eat too much?

Christmas is over for another year.  Did you eat too much?

Your writing cannot show what you actually ate, or how much, but it can show whether you have the inclination to be someone who enjoys food and perhaps has trouble knowing when to stop!

There are other reasons, of course, for over eating, but if your reason is just that you enjoy food so much, you may find it showing in your writing. Continue reading

Who’ll find the best shopping deals? Personality in the Marketplace.

The day after Christmas, which is today as I write this, in North America, is the day when people pack the shops even more than they did before Christmas, as they shop for bargains, make returns on unwanted gifts, and generally try to survive the mobs as they get the best “deals.”


“Mayhem” is a good word to describe it.

But like every other occasion in life, people’s writing can give accurate insights into how someone is likely to behave. Continue reading

Printing or script: what does it say about me?

“I write with a mixture of printing and joined-up writing. What does that mean?”

I hear that question so often after I have made a presentation on handwriting analysis to a group.

People always seem to assume it’s something negative, but it’s not…  In fact it’s a really useful ability to have.  With other positive attributes, it can become a real gift. Continue reading

Your signature shows where you want to be.

– Is the past where you would like to be?

– Or are you very much in the present wanting to know what is happening all around you?

– Or are you anxious and eager to get on into the future and all the possibilities it offers?

Your signature tells a great deal about you.  But quite apart from how it is written, where it is written gives some terrific clues about the writer. Continue reading

Enthusiasm: Start an Epidemic

“Enthusiasm is contagious.  You can start an epidemic”

This is an anonymous quote I found today, and I love it!

Yes, you might even say I am enthusiastic about it.

Another quote I found that can help you be enthusiastic if you are not already so is:

“If you want to be happy, act happy.”

(also anonymous)

It may come as a surprise to you to hear that your handwriting can be the tool that enables you to develop and grow your enthusiasm and create happiness. Continue reading

Worry and Blame. Stop them in their tracks.

Are you a worrier?  Do you blame yourself unnecessarily?

Self blame.  It can be so much tougher than blame from any other source. Worry can take over your life if you let it.

Here is quote I found recently, by Louise Hay:

“You have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”…

Here is how your handwriting can help… Continue reading
