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.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a day when all mothers are being celebrated, appreciated and recognized. It’s a day where you can express your feelings of love and gratitude for who she is and the difference she made in your life. It is important to honour those women in your life that you feel a maternal bond with, as well as Continue reading

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

Life is so short

Once again I am confronted by the reality that ‘Life is so short’. Yes, it is. Life is short when it gets taken away without you being prepared. Then again, how can you ever be prepared for something like that. Every minute that passes does not come back – ever. So it would be wise for us to watch what we say and what we do because you can never take it back. Sadly, we live as if we can have many do-overs, little do we know that before we know it; we are running out of life. Continue reading

True Love is a lie

Today I discovered that True Love is just a big fat lie. We profess our love for each other in so many words and gestures, but the real test comes when it’s time to make choices. Destiny and fate may play a role in two people meeting. Their circumstances, their need at the time and its fulfilment is a factor in falling in love. Staying in love forever is a choice. So what does that have to do with True love, what’s true love anyway? Continue reading

You have a choice

We all have choices to make. No one forces us to do anything we do not want to do. There is always a reason why we do certain things and why we don’t do other things. Every person is different. Everyone has a different need. What makes us happy, excited, disappointed, etc. all differs from one person to the next. So we all make different choices. We choose what we Continue reading

What is an immigrant?

A sensitive subject that many would avoid talking about because the number of immigrants in this world has become so large that it feels like everyone is now an immigrant. Many might not like what I will say, but it’s just my opinion, it’s not intended to insult anyone or any culture for that matter. An immigrant is someone who Continue reading

You are Happiest when …

Once more I will touch on a subject I have expressed my thoughts on before. Today’s question is you are happiest when??  It’s more like fill in the blanks rather than a question. The start of the statement indicates you already know that you experienced happiness. You just need to specify the moments in which you feel it. This means we admit to ourselves that happiness is not constant. Happiness comes Continue reading

one + one = two

Equations; something we all learned in school and most of us wondered when will we ever use this nonsense in our day-to-day life. How will all the unnecessary information we learned in these books be ever helpful in our practical life. Well, I finally found something. I feel better now knowing all the nights of studying didn’t go in vain. Continue reading

Our Reality

In light of the recent events, Please bare with me while I break it down and speak my own mind with my humbled knowledge of politics and what’s going on around us today. Let me start by saying, everyone is entitled for their own opinion and everyone has the right to express their feelings their way as long as you are not insulting or causing harm to someone.

Typical conversations

Ever found yourself in a coffee shop watching and observing what’s going on around you while having your own coffee. Ever found yourself listening in on people’s private conversations, not because you want to, but because they are so loud. Ever wondered if this is common everywhere in the world. Are those conversations the same everywhere you go?? Well, I wondered, and so I decided to investigate.
