Travel when you are young

Don’t wait till you get older to start travelling. Don’t wait for the perfect timing. Don’t wait till you are finally free, the kids have grown, you retire, you pay off the house, you have more money; whatever excuse you keep on giving yourself for postponing your travelling. Travel when you are young and healthy. Don’t wait till Continue reading

Writing from inspiration

Many times I want to sit and write my thoughts and my feelings. I think of so many things all at the same time. And I’m constantly getting disrupted and distracted. I lose my train of thoughts. And I don’t end up writing anything. So I learned that if I don’t actually just start typing what’s on my mind, it will be gone and it won’t come back. This is what inspired writing is. You write when Continue reading

Creepy Message

 

It is mind boggling to me at times, when people message you out of no where, with the pretense that they are asking about your well-being. Meanwhile, you haven’t spoken in ages. Regardless of the reasons as to why the connections were severed and without putting any consideration to who stopped talking first, it still is creepy when you get a text message saying: “Hello beautiful, how are you doing? What have you been up to?” Ladies do you feel me? Continue reading

Corona Effect – positives & negatives Part 4

Reflection time:

This is a time to assess and reflect. You have been given a golden opportunity, one that doesn’t come by often. It is here for you. Yes YOU!! It’s not here for your neighbor or your friend only. It’s here for everyone on this planet at the same time. Some people have been going through these moments of reflection on their own pace and time. Some, avoided it because they are too afraid of what they will find. Which one will you be? Are you the one that will shrug it off and keep going on your path? Or are you the one that will finally stop and pay attention to the signs staring you right in the face? Which one are you going to be? Continue reading

Corona Effect – positives & negatives Part 3

Undeniably, I have been shaken after listening to projections regarding the predicted cases of COVID-19 and the anticipated death tolls. But then I realized, what good would that do? Will it change anything? Besides, why panic about what could happen, when it has not yet happened. I refuse to allow these projections to cause me anxiety. I stay true to what I believe and that is to stay focused on the positive while merely being aware of our reality. Continue reading

Does it get easier?

It’s been a while since I heard your voice or saw your face. I guess I’ve been distracted with life and all it’s craziness. I thought I was getting stronger and able to hold my emotions together. Not until I accidentally came across a recording you addressed to me one day. As soon as I heard you call my name, I burst into tears. Continue reading

Corona Effect – positives & negatives Part 2

I went for a long drive needing some fresh air and a change in scenery. I met no one. I spoke to no one. But I was amazed at the number of cars on the road at this time. If everyone is supposed to be staying home and social distancing. If only essential businesses are operating. Then what are all those cars doing on the road. Perhaps they are like me, taking a drive and breathing in some fresh air.

Along my leisurely drive, Continue reading

Corona Effect – positives & negatives

 

Whether you are opening up Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, all you see, one post after the next, is something about the Corona virus – AKA: COVID-19. It’s the talk of the town. Rather, it’s the talk of the world. Never have I seen such a thing. Never have I lived such trying times. Never would I have thought I would feel like I am in the middle of a war.

Indeed, it feels like it’s a war. Some speculate and say it is Continue reading

How low can you go

A term that can be interpreted in many ways and it can apply to various scenarios. However, for today’s purpose, I am using this term to describe how far we are willing to put ourselves down in order to save a relationship and win back a person we love so much; someone we can’t bare the thought of living without. What would you do? How far would you go to Continue reading

Wedding Day

The special day that every girl/woman dreams of.  And the annoying day that most boys/men want to get it over with. How funny that from the beginning, they already see things differently. Yet they are supposed to be building a life together on the same foundation in order to grow stronger together. The Wedding day means different things to everyone involved. And that is a known reality. Continue reading

Conforming

Since the day you were born, you found yourself restricted. As you started to comprehend what’s going on, you found yourself abiding by so many rules. And it only gets worse as you get older and pass from one stage to the next. Just when you think you got it all figured out, you find yourself stuck in more rules, laws, dos & don’ts and don’t you dare. If for once you built up the courage to Continue reading
