Strange, yet familiar.

Wow, I haven't posted in a long long time. But today I am inspired to blog and share again. I really liked the picture message that I am posting below that I came across today via a friend.

Such is the power of the pen. You can meet a younger version of yourself by revisiting a book you once read. It also feels strange and familiar to read blog posts and letters from many years ago. Who said time travelling isn't possible :)

Came across this advise, loved it and found it to be worth sharing

By Martha Madeiros

You start dying slowly
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.
You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.
You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colors
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.
You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.
You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice…

Some sayings of some special people you just don't forget. I vividly remember these words from 4 years ago.

Traits of a best friend

'So who is your best friend' is a question frequently asked. I have come up with a list of traits I find befitting on that one person you can label as your best friend.

- someone around whom you can be yourself; no formality, no judgements
- someone with you can talk about anything and everything; the good, the bad, the jokes, the serious talks, the whining, the laughters
- someone who is always there for you in the hour of need or otherwise; this could be as light as getting together for an unplanned icecream craving or as serious as being the first one to help you out of some deep trouble
- someone who will walk an extra mile for you
- someone whose company is always welcome
- someone with whom you share the same rights and wrongs

Hmmmm, what more, add to my list =)

Courteous or Hypocrite?

If I don't like you and yet I behave nicely, does that make me courteous or a hypocrite?
