* DeTox

You need to detox yourself occasionally to feel rejuvenated, it has been a known thing to many for years. You plan a program suited to your requirement and need and you carry it out in the duration of usually a week. That's in a physiological aspect.
What do you do when you need to detoxify yourself Psychologically?
Read self help books?
Remove the negative vibes around you?
Think on the positive?
Be around people who bring good thoughts into your head?
Well the list is endless.. its not as simple as going on a complete fruit diet and achieving anti-bloating, a non water retention state of being.
Psychological detox would mean reaching a state of Zen!
Of complete peace with your surroundings, and that includes the people around you.
So what exactly should one do to detox Psychologically?
Humm.. When I do figure it out, I shall write about it, but right now..
fruits, water and purified air, your my buddy for the day..
To my brain, go to sleep and ignore the crap that will take plac…

* Pain is PAIN!!

If you get someone saying to you, "oh you find this pain unbearable even after experiencing labor?", you know what you should do? Roll a magazine and wack their head! That's what you do!
Whatever the pain you experience, if it's painful, it's painful!
Before experiencing labor, I was convinced nothing was going to be as painful as a tooth ache!
After experiencing labor, I stand corrected!! Pain is pain!
No measuring system can tell you which is worst!
No matter how high your tolerance to pain is, it will sting you till you tear and that to possibly to a cardiac arrest!
I really thought I was going to die of a heart failure when I got my right toe stuck in between the bottom of my wash room door and elevated floor, while trying to shut the damn thing!
My kids got so freaked out to see me cry the way I did and that frozen packet of corn made it even more unbearable! I almost felt like I was going to get a cardiac arrest trying to bare the pain!
Now my toe looks mor…

* Function with a dysfunction (FWAD)

Have you had people in your life who constantly had issues?
Issues that may seem so silly to some, but so serious to those who can only FWAD.
They can have a completely normal life, but they choose not to.
They choose to hang on to the crap of their past or the easily dismissable issues of the present. They simply must have something to be unhappy about so as to have a reason to live?
To these people the other odd thing is, they would so easily categorize others as a FWAD because to these FWADs their issues are so serious, other people's actual problems are dismissable to them..
Seriously, analyse these sort of FWAD people and you'll actually amuse yourself!

* Sostenuto.. I shall forever 'Sustaine' you!!

I felt really old today sitting for my Piano Theory Exam!!
Yes.. I was the only mom, who wasn't there with her kid, but was there at the exam hall for herself, amongst the kids of women my age and older!
I know people say, age is just a number, and that education sees no age limit, but I seriously believe in Music it does, especially if you're sitting for the exam with a bunch of kids.
This morning went well, and thanks to the bloody term SOSTENUTO which I will forever remember now, I shall not be getting that perfect 100%!! Hahahaha!
It was never the less, pure fun!
Answering this paper, and being the OLDEST in the ENTIRE exam hall!!

What's life without music?

* Mama Mania - Feeding Bottles

I have come to realise, that too many in this category can sometimes be a bad thing. How many feeding bottles can a child have? Well as many as you want them to have, but the stinky part comes when you have to wash them all!
Here's the thing, when you have a lot to begin with, each time your child asks you for a drink, you take a clean bottle from the storage container, and subsequently the soiled ones accumulate a the sink, well at least that's the case for me in my lazy days.
Then when you do run out of clean bottles, it takes you almost forever to wash the dirty ones, and as they say, collect your dishes and do them all at one time to save water (I CONFESS!!!! - it's not the saving of water that I consider in my case, it's my pure laziness, but I use this as my excuse to make myself feel better).
So I do, I collect them all and wash them up together except for the ones with milk, I give a quick rinse and soap them off in a pile. I want to make a change the next time…

* The Fun in Facebooking

Image
Have you ever seen a person having close to a thousand friends or more in their list of friends on Facebook? I'm sure you have. It can be pretty amazing how one keeps up with such a high number of friends and family on an account.
Then you have those who open Facebook account, and filters each and everyone they have on their FB, and keep a good number of 5 friends!
Well it is really the account holder's choice, but yesterday in a humored conversation with some good buddies, we decided to ask ourselves, who we shouldn't have on our facebook.
These are the ones we shortlisted: 1. Your boss/bosses.. I mean you work with them is enough already.. when you need to vent or complain, you might just want to shout out something to everyone and since FB is excellent for it, why loose that upcoming promotion right?
2. Your parents.. well this I wasn't quite agreeable to. There are other things to consider, like if you see your parents at the end of every day then what for? If yo…

* Miley Cyrus - The Climb

Another one of my favorite.
Perfect lyrics that touches my soul. It really isn't about what you achieve but the road that you take to getting there, the journey that makes you who you are.

THE CLIMB
I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming but
There's a voice inside my head sayin,
You'll never reach it,
Every step I'm taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction

My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high

There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I'm gonna to have to lose,
Ain't about how fast I get there,
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing,
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down but
No I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I,
I got to be str…

* 7teen and Beyond

You're not a kid, nor are you an adult.
So what are you?
A TEENAGER that's what you are.
A person who's got so much potential in life, who is at the starting point of the best things to achieve, standing on the platform to success. That's what your life is.
Being 17 is the prime point of your life.
The point where your decisions on friendship, relationship, education, career, family and personal enrichment takes its pinnacle priority.
The choices you choose can MAKE YOU or BREAK YOU.
That is what everyone should bare in mine too. Not just the teenager but the family, relatives and friends.
The support a teenager gets from the family is the utmost importance to allowing him/her to be what he/she will be.

You are blessed when you have the best circle of friends, a supportive family, and relatives who genuinely boost your confidence and supports you with your decisions. For those who come into your life to mock you, criticise you, scrutinize and belittle your behaviour, y…

* John Mayer: Say (music video from "The Bucket List")

I truly found this movie 'Bucket List' to be a lesson filled, hilarious, heart breaking one. The sort that is filled with words of advice you often hear but simply forget in the routines of your life.
Try to watch this movie if you have not and enjoy this song from John Mayer, SAY.
I must also say THANKS CHATAN for asking me to watch this!

SAY
Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put 'em in quotations

Say what you need to say [x8]

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you'd be better off instead,
If you could only ...

Say what you need to say [x8]

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You'd better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say [x24]

* Oh To Be 12 Again...

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, looking at herself in the mirror.
Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she'd like to have for her Birthday.
'I'd like to be twelve again', she replied, still looking in the mirror.
On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of
Coco Pops, and then took her to Alton Towers theme park.
What a day!
He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Corkscrew, the Wall of
Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was.
Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park.
Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.
He then took her to a Mc Donald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.
Then it was off to the cinema with popcorn, a huge Cola, and her favourite sweets...........M&M's.
What a fabulous adventure!
Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted.
He…

* Bless The Broken Road...

I just absolutely love this song.. by Rascall Flatts, both the music and the lyrics. (video clip from You Tube)
Bless The Broken Road "I set out on a narrow way many years ago, Hoping I would find true love along the broken road But I got lost a time or two Wiped my brow and kept pushing through I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you [Chorus:] Every long lost dream, led me to where you are Others who broke my heart, they were like Northern stars Pointing me on my way, into your loving arms This much I know is true.. That God blessed the broken road That led me straight to you... [Verse 2] I think about the years I spent just passing through I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you But you just smile and take my hand You've been there you understand It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true [Chorus] Now I'm just rolling home Into my lover's arms This much I know is true That God blessed the broken road That led me st…

* NEVER say NEVER

When you say NEVER, try and mean it.
I remember the countless number of times I have said NEVER MORE WILL I....., yet I go about doing it.
We truly live in an oxymoronic state!
We chose to say things we won't be able to keep to, thinking that when we say it, because we may have forgotten it, others would have also.
Never will I lie to you..
Never will I talk to you..
Never will I bake that cake again...
Never will I see them again..
Never more will I hurt them...
The book entitled Secrets, have a lot that quotes on what you always say you NEVER MORE WILL DO, only brings the energy to make you do it again..
It's the positive things in life that we constantly tell ourselves that we want to have around us, but somehow the book also says that the way we channel this positive things has got to be about the I WILLs and not I WON'Ts.
I will be happy..
I will cook that cake again and make it better this time..
I will ignore her and pray for her..
I will let time pass and see if I …

Modern Day Proposal

I got this via email from someone very dear to me..
Thought I would share it with you. If you have not read this in your inbox before.. enjoy this ok..

SAMPLE OF A MODERN LOVE LETTER

Dearest Samantha,

I am very happy to inform you that I have fallen in love with you since Tuesday, the 17th of August 2001.With reference to the meeting held between us on the 17th of August 2001 at 1500 hours, I would like to present myself as a prospective lover.

Our love affair would be on probation for a period of no less than three months and depending on compatibility, would be made permanent. Of course, upon completion of probation, there will be continuous relationship training and relationship appraisal schemes leading up to promotion from lover to spouse.

The expenses incurred for coffee and entertainment would initially be shared equally between us. Later, based on your performance, I might take up a larger share of the expenses. However I am broad-minded enough, to be taken care of, on your expense …

* Jack of All Trades and Master of None?

Image
Interesting figure of speech isn't it?
As much as this saying was made in reference to a Generalist, a person, that is competent with many skills but is not outstanding in any particular one, I for one would rather say otherwise.
What if a person was competent with many skills and was excellent in them all?
Then wouldn't it be better to be a Jack of all trades?
Why just be a Master to one or two?
What's not great about being a Generalist?
Why can't that Generalist be a great one as he does the best in each and every trade he endeavours?
Leonardo da Vinci was a Generalist.
How famous is he?
Nothing is terminally unacceptable in being a polymath!
I see a Jack of all trades as an all-rounder rather than being just great at one thing, I choose to be great with many, great in the way I know best, great in the way that satisfies me because at the end of the day it is my happiness that matters. What I am proud of that counts.
I have learnt this much till now, that no one but yourself…

* To 'Bitch' is no one's right!

Time out with friends are always something anyone would look forward to. I used to until I realise sometimes it's just a waste of time! When there's something to really talk about, share and discuss, be it a happy or sad reason, then the motive is fine. Just to simply chill out together is fine too.

But what sickens me is when you sit to talk and suddenly you start talking about someone else, and when there's some form of spike fullness existing against that talked about person, you hear comments like "ah, I'm sure she's fucking around and bullshitting her parents that she's busy with work!' or "yeah, tired and sleeping? with someone next to her after a good session I'm sure!"I've just heard way too many unworthy women speak this way.

Why do women, always allow themselves to put false accusations on another? To judge someone else in this matter?Most often, the ladies who talk this way, are actually doing it themselves, and yes I do know…
