I look forward to summer break. The spring in my step is not what it could be. I won't travel this year, I need rest, I need a rested brain. Although I love to change scenery once in a while, there is no denying the fact that travelling is not a restful way to rejuvenate… Continue reading Summer Break
Today was what my colleague and I call "sushi Thursday". Once a week, lunch out instead of bring our lunches and we treat ourselves to sushi. We both like it. On top of our usual plate we treated ourselves to sushi desserts this week. For those who do not know how that concept can even… Continue reading Purposely Seek Little Pleasures
Once stretched, the mind never goes back to its previous state. And so does awareness. Once you are aware of something, you keep seeing it, in you, in others, and in unrelated situations. You start seeing your life in a different shade and suddenly everything looks different while driving home that new thing you are aware… Continue reading Awareness and Expansion
Sometimes you get a surprise. I was offered a new (part time) challenge. I might have to rearrange my life a little bit but it is feasible. I will give it a try because it will bring me into another circle of people and, honestly, it is time I expand it. Let's see what destiny… Continue reading Opportunities
Once in while, doubts creep in. Without reason, they just keep coming up. That bright future you have been dreaming about becomes inaccessible, not even plausible. Doubs are sometimes so strong you feel discouraged, you feel stuck. Then you wake up the next morning and you feel hopeful again. Live has its ups and down,… Continue reading Dear Doubts, Go Away!
Is that not the boyscouts' motto? I usually get ready for the week on Sunday. I do my clean, I do laundry, and I cook so I can prepare meals in 10 minutes instead of an hour on weekdays. I think this is a must for working mothers. The job of a woman is never… Continue reading Always Be Prepared
Ah! I know no hours to cook. If the whim takes me, I do it. I cooked chicken thighs in a crock-pot today and, as much as possible, I waste nothing. I make my own chicken broth using the water in which I cook the chicken. As you must know, crock-pot makes very tender meat… Continue reading Short-fused
This is not about academics, it is about awareness, about growth. What have you discovered this week about yourself or those around you? Did somebody showed your their true colours? Did you come to understand that what you blame yourself for was not your doing? Did you find a puzzle, a riddle you have a… Continue reading How Much Have You Learned This Week?
I mean to talk about death. I, for one, have a point of contention with death. I don't like it, I have issues with it, I don't quite know how to deal with it. I have always been uncomfortable around it. I am not made to be around lifeless bodies. Death is both a thief and… Continue reading When Life Leaves
How far would you go in the name of friendship? Fiction tells us that friends stand by one another, they support one another, they put their friends first, they take a beating for them so they be spared. How often have your friends sacrificed themselves for you? Do you have that type of friends? My guess… Continue reading Friendship
