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.
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
We read all those beautiful motivational quotes and posts. We watch those inspirational clips and we read many encouraging and educational thoughts. But when it comes to applying it, we find out how hard it really is. It’s one thing to repeat those words, it’s another to live them. Continue reading
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
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
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
