Hello my fellow bloggers, I do have to admit that I do have to disappear once in a while thus I apologize for that but I have been working on something exciting which you’ll get to know in a few months time. SO until them let me share another interesting mail with you all that I had received recently…

“A woman came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find her 5-year old son waiting for her at the door.

 SON: ‘Mummy, may I ask you a question?’

 MUM: ‘Yeah sure, what it is?’ replied the woman.

 SON: ‘Mummy, how much do you make an hour?’

 MUM: ‘That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?’ the woman said angrily.
 SON: ‘I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?’

 MUM: ‘If you must know, I make   Rs. 50 an hour(roughly a Dollar).’

 SON: ‘Oh,’ the little boy replied, with his head down.

 SON: ‘Mummy, may I please borrow Rs.25?’

 The mother was furious, ‘If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish.

 I don’t work hard everyday for such childish frivolities.’

 The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door..

 The woman sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

 After about an hour or so, the woman had calmed down , and started to think:

 Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that Rs.25.00 and she really didn’t ask for money very often.The woman went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.

 ‘Are you asleep, son?’ She asked.

 ‘No Mummy, I’m awake,’ replied the boy.

 ‘I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier’ said the woman. ‘It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here’s the Rs.25 you asked for.’

 The little boy sat straight up, smiling. ‘Oh, thank you Mummy!’ he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.

 The woman saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again.

 The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his mother.

 ‘Why do you want more money if you already have some?’ the mother grumbled.

 ‘Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,’ the little boy replied.

 ‘Mummy, I have Rs.50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.’

 The mother was crushed. She put his arms around her little son, and she begged for his forgiveness.

 It’s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers
 without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember  to share that R50 worth of your time with someone you love.

 If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. ”

Hope you all did like it and please do try and spread the message by sharing it with your friends… Thanks & Best Wishes…

CAUTION! Fragile Content Inside

Hello my dear bloggers, I do not know how to admit my mistake that I wasn’t able to post anything at all for the past couple of weeks as I was a bit busy in clearing up some things, but Hey! I also did some pensive work about my next blog topic…

And a recent conversation with a good friend of mind helped me in cementing my topic for today’s blog topic. I’ve seriously been itching to write on this topic and I finally got a heaven-sent green signal in the form of my friend.

As we all know human beings, in my opinion, are the most complex of living beings to comprehend and I have to disagree with those people who have the knack of saying that they can judge a person in the first five minutes.

Hellooo???

Are you kidding? I beg to differ with such cynics and have to add that it takes an entire lifetime to understand your fellow mates  and one cannot do it in the first five minutes or five months!!!

How many of us would’ve cribbed about a specific person whose “original character” comes to life only after they betray your trust?

I’m sure over half a million people around the world will definitely raise their hands, including me!!!

Emotions, in my opinion are very fragile and volatile by nature, and if you the handyman drops the package then you’re in for some serious trouble buddy!!!

However lets analyse this from a different perspective, the brain and heart are the two most vital and projected organs for a human beings’ survival. Yet they both bear so much brunt that they eventually have to break down at some point of time!

And this happens quite often to us. People react in helluva different number of ways which we cannot gauge. Yet we believe that, oh ok they seem to be really nice don’t they? Yeah, right!!!

The fragile nature of our heart does tend to give us a lot of pain that sometimes tend to be irreparable. There are some who pour their hearts out and there are some who forgive and forget and there are MANY who would like to take revenge (But that’s a different topic! 😉 )

Yet we al have learnt to move on ultimately and that’s what counts!

Although it is a highly impossible task for us to constantly keep cushioning our heart with many layers, mistakes do happen. After all humans do err!!!

Nevertheless, we need to pick the stones up and start our journey again and again and again despite the many life-threatening hurdles that we may meet.

But in a another perspective we crib however we also fail to understand that the other person who we may think bad about also has a heart that is equally fragile as ours.

However good or bad they may be, it is our duty as an individual to not break their emotions in any way.

So fellow bloggers do keep your heart and others’ hearts comfy as well… Until next time, Best Wishes from Addy 🙂

Hello my dear bloggers, I do have to acknowledge and apologize for a rather brief hiatus wherein I wasn’t able to post anything for a couple of weeks.

You could say that in my opinion I was facing “Bloggers Block“… I seriously didn’t know what to post at all or what topic to write or rather rant upon so decided to take some time off and soak up some inspiration for my next blog post and finally I did manage to get some and here goes one…

I’m pretty much sure that you all must be aware of the famous quote “Out of sight, out of mind”

So it goes on to explain ( or rather what I interpreted from it 😉 ) as people and situations tend be forgotten once you actually don’t see them in person… Kinda resembling “Time Heals”

However I would like to rewrite or requote what this anonymous and famously philosophical thinker with my own bunch of quotes that constantly keep evaporating from my cranium that I need some place to store it and eventually gloat over it after many years!!!

So what else can be the best place than my blog??? Huh???

On the contrary, I would like to rephrase it by saying that even though people or situations or things tend to escape from our sight, we still ponder over it almost on a daily basis in our mind! 

And this happens especially with the case of something or someone memorable, things/people who have left an impact on you, in either a good or bad way.

I for one actually happen to remain most of the bad situations or people more than the positive, but we humans are like that right? Hopefully???

But there are some friends, people, incidents, situations who I will always remember for their positive effect on me. Although I have to admit that I don’t think about such thoughts often but it does cross my mind once in a while…

It’s just that I learn so many lessons from past mistakes or errors committed that I don’t want to repeat them again!!!

And this is what we all want, right? 🙂

And the same new quote applies for us as well. We as a human being want or rather should be remembered for our good deeds more than for our mistakes, right.?

 So it doesn’t matter if the person is alive or dead, good or bad, the situation is a past or future, it all matters that we remember them and keep the thoughts alive in our minds and hearts…

Wishing everyone in the world take it up upon themselves to do this… 🙂

PS: Oh and would like to hear some feedback from fellow bloggers if its ok that I post a blog post without any pictures??? I’m wary about the Copywright thing et al 😉

“Life is not an iPod that plays only your favourite playlist, it’s a radio that we need to adjust the frequency according to the situation!”

No, the above-mentioned quote was definitely not crafted by me, although I wouldn’t mind taking credit for it 😉 , but lets just say it was quoted by an anonymous individual.

Although the above mentioned quote does strike a chord in my cranium, I do have to admit that at times I do definitely listen to only a selective songs on my iPod as well.

Based on further tweaking of my nerve strings, I did come up with a conclusion that people who are sort of having only a limited amount of songs and only from their favourite bands/singers tend to be more of an introvert and are a bit averse to any sudden or rather unexpected changes.

And people, I am actually ashamed to say this, but I am that sort of person. I do have friends who have thousands of songs on their portable music devices, albeit reclusive me has a mere 350 only, but nevertheless for me it is an achievement.

However on the bright side, I did notice an observation that although I don’t have that many songs listed, I quite lip sync most of the songs and quite know the lyrics to the T!

Yet, we do need to understand that Music does not need any language as long as you’ve got the ears for it!!!

It is definitely uplifting to listen to a set of songs when you feel happy, sad, depressed, anxious, nervous, etc… To calm your senses down and think more clearly and in a rational way rather than making a hasty decision.

 Yet, why do some people take so much time to either recognize or adapt to a certain song ( or in literal sense- situation!), it maybe more psychological by nature.

It may involve how the person has been brought up, how they behaved or taught to behave in a situation, genes, etc.. and this has an invariable effect on the individual’s likes and interests and eventually how the person reacts to a certain situation.

Different people have different interests, which is good. After all as they as “Variety is the spice of life!”

But the main problem arises when there is a sort of “out-of-tune” approach between different individuals and they are not “in-sync”! It does take time to gel with people and eventually strum up a good number, but with practice you can be a STAR!

Until next time, Happy Blogging…

PS:I wonder what my blogging friend, Ava the musician/singer would think of this post!!!

Long Overdue

Hello my fellow bloggers, as the title does suggest, I completely understand that it has definitely been quite “long overdue” since I posted anything on my blog. But never fear, cuz am here!!!!! ( God! Do I get a kick out of saying something cartoony 😉 )

Well, last couple of weeks have me kinda philosophical by nature. You know I had to use my cranium quite a lot (not that I disapprove of!), started feeling anxious and nervous.

There are so many things that you anxiously wait or expect to happen but sometimes it doesn’t and in my case quite a lot, but me who doesn’t give up that easily, pursued my DREAMS and GOALS with “grit” and “determination” if I may add, finally managed to get some things done that I always wanted.

However the process was a rather long and arduous one. It definitely isn’t that easy to pursue something that didn’t happen once but you nevertheless made it happen the second time round. So for that I give myself a pat on the back!!!

Long Overdue

The process literally and I mean seriously tests your patience and self-confidence! For me it took a year, and I just cannot simply sit and watch the time tick by, right? So I decided to dabble in few other things while still giving it all I got!

In the end it did finally happen along with a host of other things. I went on a vacation that was long overdue, and it was just amazing to just while away time doing nothing but enjoy the world!!!

You also get to know of a good omen when things finally start to fall in place. You know, the domino effect, when one initial action falls in place, it triggers other consequent actions to finish in the affirmative thereby finishing the most intricately crafted puzzle.

Although I questioned my decision, lost confidence, lost patience, threw tantrums, spent lost of time solitude, but when the thing that I wanted took place, I felt “It was definitely worth the effort and time!”

So I just want to add that it definitely is easy to give up and later regret about it, but it never is easy to not give up and still pursue your aims!

“Patience” and “Determination” does pay off at times.. although quite delayed 😉 !

PS: On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, I would to extend my heartfelt warmth, gratitude and love to all my fellow bloggers, subscribers and followers who have been supportive of my blog! And a final big hug to my BLOG, without which I wouldn’t have survived my long and arduous wait for things to happen 🙂

Best Wishes everybody…
