Do you want to know what it’s like living in a world where you are this person but to the rest of the world you are another. Have you ever felt that you are living a double life. Have you ever had to hide what you feel inside. Have you ever had to pretend to be someone you are not. Did you ever have to make decisions in your life where you would live in pain whichever way you choose. Welcome to my life.  Continue reading

Is it Strength or Is it Weakness 

Many times we are faced with situations in our lives where we have to make detrimental decisions; decisions that will alter the path we are on. We may be aware of their importance while going through them. Other times, we realize their importance later, possibly after the fact. Maybe we do it on purpose; not making things a big deal. And maybe we are aware and we feel every emotion that comes our way. Regardless Continue reading

Is love everything?

Some say all you need is love. Love is everything. All the rest can be worked out. And some say, love is important but you need compatibility more and love can come with time.

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
