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
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 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
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
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
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.
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.

They wonder why I do the things I do. They question my sanity sometimes. They ask me if I know what I’m getting myself into. They sometimes warn me of what’s to come and I still do it anyway. Continue reading
Learning is part of life. Since we were born, we have been on a journey of learning. When we were kids, we learned that knowledge will only come if we went to school, obtained high degrees and worked hard to be the best. We thought learning stopped once you got your university degree. By then, you would know everything. Continue reading
How many times you caught yourself saying: “Damn! I wish I said that or didn’t say that. Or I wish I did that or didn’t do that.” … “I wish I figured this out sooner, I wish I walked away earlier, I wish I knew what I know now ages ago, I wish I could go back and change things, If only I was that person back then … Etc.” but you didn’t know, and you weren’t that person and no you can’t go back. That’s just the way it is. Continue reading
Most of us wonder what happened in our world. How did it become so …. Not sure there is word to describe this state we are in. Some will say: we are connected to each other in a better way. But others will say: this has gone too far. Where do we draw the line? Is there even one? Continue reading
Some questions we ask; there is no easy answer to. Sometimes it’s the answer we wish we didn’t know. The answers we find were in the question from the start. One thing for sure, you must seek what you are looking for. Whether the answer is good or not for you. And so Shakespeare asked one of the biggest questions of all time: “to be or not to be”. A question with many possible answers yet I know none. And today I ask a much simpler question: “Stay or walk away”. Continue reading
I start this post by sharing this quote:
How intelligent are we? Or should I ask how intelligent we think we are? Some of us claim to be intelligent but when it comes down to it; our actions end up contradicting our words. And so I ask you today. How intelligent you think you are? And why? Do you know the difference between being smart and being intelligent? Continue reading
Let us not dare to deny that we do things in our day-to-day life without thinking of how it affects us. ‘What’s in it for me’ is an underlying thought that we may or may not be aware of, but it happens, constantly. Very few people don’t have these thoughts on a regular basis, but from time to time they will stop to think about the decisions they take and how it affects them. So in the end, no one escapes this thought. It happens to each and every one of us, whether we want to admit it or not, whether we recognize it or not. The recurrence and the intensity of this thought is what differentiates one person from the next. It’s the fine line between being selfish and plainly looking out for yourself.
