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

The teacher becomes the student and The student; teacher

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

We blame ourselves too much

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

Stay Or Walk Away

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

What’s in it for me?

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.

Long Distance Relationship? You Crazy?

That’s pretty much the reaction you will get from the people close to you, whether it be family members or close friends, whether it be male or female. And your response to that will most likely be: “don’t worry, I know what I am doing.” Then time passes and you get to understand that one: you didn’t really know what you were getting yourself into, and two: Continue reading
