The Calm before the Storm

Do you ever notice that in your life, you have those times where everything seems to be going somewhat normal. Life is just going by, day by day, it’s the same old story. People ask you how is it going, your answer is the same. It’s good, all is good. And then, out of no where, the calmness ends suddenly and the storm hits. And you understand the term, when it rains, it pours.  Continue reading

Are you listening?

Sometimes people don’t listen to you. It could be because they don’t want to, perhaps they are not ready for grasping what you have to say. Or it could be they can’t; meaning, something is preventing them from listening and understanding at this point in time. They can be distracted or simply their mental capability is not helping them. And so the question is not are they hearing you, but are they listening to what you are saying? Are they paying attention to the meaning behind the words. Are you listening! Truly listening! Ask yourself.  Continue reading

Men and their dirty games

Let me start by saying, both men and women can play dirty games in relationships. They both make mistakes. There are good men out there but there is also bad. There are bad women out there just as good. But today, I would like to focus on one particular kind; the bad men or should I say, the men that like to play games for various reasons, be it their personality type or trying to be cool or simply just not ready for commitment.  Continue reading

Is it tiredness or laziness

It is easy to confuse our thoughts with our feelings. It is common practice to find reasons and or excuses as to why we do or do not do certain things. Some say it’s a cop out. And some say it’s totally normal. And so have you wondered which one is really the case or you really don’t care. In the case of not doing what needs to be done. Do you say “I’m just tired” or do you actually admit it and say “I’m just being lazy”.  Continue reading

Obsession

There is no other way I can describe Obsession, than being a disease; a vicious one at that. How does one get infected and is there a cure. Can someone one day realize that they are far gone in this disease and get help. Honestly, I think it’s hard. It’s like being OCD, one is never born as such. You develop it with time and it can worsen with age if you are not too careful and keep it under control. So can becoming obsessed, it is developed with time and it can definitely get worse.  Continue reading

Who Am I?

Who am I is a question you ask yourself when life has thrown things at you from all angles. You find yourself being, doing and saying things you never thought you would. You wonder who am I becoming. This is not me. Eventually you will realize that even those sudden changes you had to go through were somehow for your benefit. Maybe this was a lesson that you had to learn the hard way. Maybe this was your destiny to go down that road. Who am I is actually a good question to ask yourself every once in a while.  Continue reading

Do you Know or you think you know

What can you truly say about, that you actually know. How many things in your life are you sure of. And how many other things you thought you knew then it turns out that you didn’t; you just thought you did. That brings me to a conclusion. That we really don’t know much. There are only a few things we can say we do know. The rest. We think we know. Until proven otherwise.  Continue reading

NEW YEAR Special Edition

The end of the year is very near. And here we are reflecting back on the year that passed. Most of us will be saying the same thing:”I just want this year to finish and hope next year will be better”. While there is nothing wrong in wishing for a better year ahead with better luck and better life and to finally have the happiness we have been searching for since forever, isn’t it fair to give thanks to all that has happened in the year that passed. How many of us actually do that? Continue reading

‘Tis Christmas 

‘Tis Christmas season again. How time flies from one Christmas to the next. Every year we say the same thing: “it’s Christmas time already?! Where did the year go?” And it seems not too long ago we were celebrating the new year. And here we are again, the Christmas spirit is on one more time. We find ourselves going around in robotic mode … we are overwhelmed with all the things we have to prepare. We run around like headless chicken. And we get caught up like we always do. What does Christmas mean to us anymore? Do we even know?!! Continue reading

Practicality and Appropriateness

The more I get to see things in this life, the more I get to learn. Observing people’s behaviors and mannerisms has been a habit of mine for quiet some time. I do it not to judge, although I find myself doing just that – human nature – can’t help myself. But really, I want to understand the whys and how comes. I want to get inside peoples minds and hearts. I want to learn and I want to grow. And ultimately I will share those lessons with you, and maybe you are interested too.  Continue reading

Too much is No good

I’m sure most of us heard of the saying: that too much of anything is not good. Finding the balance has always been our challenge.  How often have you found yourself in a situation when too much was happening. The result is you get overwhelmed. At times make mistakes and have poor judgment. Other times get hurt and disappointed. That’s because too much or too little is no good for us. The key is to find the balance.  Continue reading

Children 

How beautiful it is to just watch the children play around. Their behavior and the way they interact with each other is super interesting. It’s funny to watch actually. Sometimes it’s disappointing. But at times a pleasure. You know who was raised properly. You know who is properly educated. And you know who is spoiled.

Balance VS Priority

Every person has a list of priorities which develops at any early age and with time, the items on that last changes as we grow and evolve. Eventually, we learn about balancing our priorities. With experience, we get to know the value of some things over others; of some people in our lives over others. Everyone has a different priority and that’s totally normal and okay. Everyone’s needs are different. As a matter of fact everyone’s needs changes with time. Therefore no one has the right to judge the other person about their priority list, however, when personally affected by the imbalance, one must speak up and make their point clear about where they want to be on that list.  Continue reading
