No Vacations

First of all let me say this, I don’t mean to brag in this blog post. Just wanted to share the fact that our family don’t really go on “vacations.” The usual 3 days/2 nights are not good enough for us. We don’t need to “breathe” because we love our …

Finding Pleasures in Everyday Life

Awareness – that’s how we can find pleasure and delight in the typically overlooked moments of our lives. It is also the simplest way of finding meaning in our everyday lives. Simple pleasures are about finding joy and delight in everyday things and everyday occurrences. Finding these pleasures is like walking along with a child who is constantly enthralled with things that adults no longer see. The awe and curiosity of children is something that we should follow.

Living Life Positively, a Way to Survive Cancer

Last Thursday, January 20th, I had the opportunity to conduct an interview with my aunt who lives somewhere in Antique about the life challenge that she’s currently facing right now. Below are my questions and her honest answers – all in her own words. Please make sure to read this post until the very end so that like me you will learn a lot of lessons in life.

Blame is the Culprit

Blame – as most of us think – is the melodramatic pointing of a finger towards someone who has done something wrong. But in truth, we are actually into blame in just about every waking moment of our days. From the weather, to rude drivers, to how the toothpaste was squeezed, you know the deal. We blame and never think a thing about it. Yeah sure more times than not we are probably justified in our accusations, but so what?!

What did I do?

Okay I just received an email from a Mother of a blogger who frequents this blog. I don’t want to mention this blogger’s name because I don’t want to fire up her mother. I understand her mother’s sentiments but I just want to clear a few things up. And I don’t want to reply to her email too because she’s “keeping a close watch” and my email address has been “blocked to date.” And again – I don’t want to make an enemy of someone’s Mom.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

The movie Twilight is based on the novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer. Kristen Stewart is Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson is Edward Cullen. I enjoyed the movie. Its about a teenage girl who fell in love with a 108 year old vampire but is physically seventeen. They fell in love. And this put Bella’s life in danger. Edward and his family risked their lives to save Bella from three nomadic vampires. Twilight is open-ended. But surely Bella chose to be a vampire too in order to be with Edward forever. It’s a classic story of love that conquers all.
