Quote of the Week:You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody

Standard

“We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past.

The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.” by Ryan O’Connell

Ain’t it funny

Standard

Ain’t  it funny

That you can know someone for years

You go out with them every night

Chit chat about this and that

And tellinf few lame jokes

But despite all these years

Do they know you, the real you?

And at the same time, you can meet a total stranger only for one time

And yet this meeting may linger with you forever

I’m Grateful

Standard

My life might not be perfect, and I might not have achieved the goals I thought I would have by now. I might not be living the kind of life I thought I would be or want to be, but I’m grateful for the life I had lived till now. You see no matter how mean and cruel the world can get, you should start counting your blessings, and you will realize what you have  received is more than what you have given. Oh, yes I know it’s easy to see the problems in our lives. They’re like mountains. But sometimes we overlook the smaller things; we don’t notice how truly beautiful they are. We easily overlook the ordinary or all the little things that matter and take them for granted.

So today I’m expressing my gratitude; I am really a fortunate person with many reasons to be grateful. I’ve been blessed with love and friendships and also wonderful kinship. For the most part I’ve been happy and content, and most of my time has been well spent; and  I had most things that I wanted

I’m grateful for having the most wonderful and kind parents and sister; they love me unconditionally from every part of their hearts and souls. They make things better in every situation by just being there besides me.

I’m grateful for having my little princess Nelly in my life. Her eyes radiate pure love. I must have done something right to have been chosen by this sweet soul.

I’m grateful for having  loving and supporting  friends that never fail to make me laugh. They keep seeing the best of me and being my gravity. With them, I’m never walking alone as I’m surrounded by pack of strong wolves who always get my back.

I’m grateful for having Rabih in my life; he is my sunshine, my moon and my starlight. The comfort I feel when he’s holding me is priceless.

I’m grateful for having a job in a bad economy and I’m working with many professional and down to earth people

I am grateful for the problems in my life; they help me change myself into a new being.

I am grateful for my health that allows me to enjoy life to the fullest

I am grateful that I am emotionally strong person as there are many close to me who are suffering from pain, sickness, relapse and depression, I am grateful I can show up and be present for them

I am grateful to have discovered this beautiful oasis called WordPress where I met wonderful, creative people from around the world who love to share their hearts, souls, wisdom, information, happiness and pain

gratitude-3

 

 

Take Attendance

Standard

Do you recall as a student, one of the very first things your teachers typically did was take attendance each morning.  S/he would go down the list and call each students’ name and you know you hollered “Present!” like the rest of us!

Do you ever stop and take attendance to note who is actually present in your life?  Often we’re so concerned about who we are with that we don’t take the time to note whose with us.  Stop for a moment and reflect on who in your life is really with YOU and who is actually with your TITLES or your TOYS.  Trouble has a way of telling on folks.  Try taking attendance in your life after your title is snatched and your toys have shrunk in comparison to the next persons.
