Every one deserves a 2nd chance, so do you!
I picked out this Video from the links in Facebook and it has really moved me in many ways. It talked about an interesting character called Ted Williams who claims to have been given the God Given voice. He fell into a slump with Alcoholism and lost every thing. He is now offered a 2nd chance. Enough said, watch all these videos and the interview especially. Continue reading

I was at Chinatown during my lunchtime when I observed a whole row of elderly men just sitting around looking at people walking by. They all dressed well. When they sit in a row, sometimes they chitchat w their neighbors while most times they just stare at passer-bys. They remind me of the pigeons that perch on a fence. They seemed like they were just passing time, coo-cooing it away. Well at least they were happy doing nothing.
To do nothing with the full intent that you are not doing anything is an art. It allows us to slow down and see the world blur by. It’s calming and highly rejuvenatory. It promotes better health and reduces the chances for heart disease too!
However, do not confuse it with having nothing to do. Some people just wander around from place to place, activity to activity because they have nothing to do and have no idea what to do. The only other thing that allows itself to behave like this is a head-less chicken. Wandering around without aim nor reason.
The difference between doing nothing and having nothing to do is the intent. One is done on purpose while the other is a product of consequence. If you find yourself wandering aimlessly, it’s time to take a break and rest. Wandering around, feeling restless and bored is a sure sign of burn out. It could be from work, studies, and even friction with a loved one. If your energy and mood is not kept in check, it could spiral into depression. Take a break, give yourself a chance to be like a pigeon n just perch somewhere. You deserve it.
If you need advise on how to do this, you may consult any of the ancients sitting in Chinatown. Who knows, you may be invited to hang out with them. If not, go pick up a new hobby!

I just read something very interesting in this book “How We Decide” by Jonah Lehrer.
Some where in the 3rd chapter he wrote that apparently our brains are never meant to learn anything new unless we try it out. His argument for that chapter is that we learn only through trial and error and to fail is to give your brain a super fast learning lesson. Continue reading

As I gave my last jest in KR, I was moved by fellow friends to pen down my thoughts that came upon me as a gibberish of words yesterday.
“It’s always necessary to know when a stage of one’s life has ended. If you stubbornly cling to it after the need has passed, you lose the joy and meaning of the rest. And you risk being shaken to your senses”. – Paulo Coehlo, The Fifth Mountain. Continue reading

The Mind Gym!
I came across the lovely little green book while I was walking in the library. The cover is simple, yet very attractive…so I couldn’t help myself and took it down to read. If you have not read it….GO AND GET IT.
What is it about?
It goes through with you scenarios and instances in life that you can work on. For example, your relationships, your ability to communicate with others, how to unlock your creativity. Yes I know..sounds like any other DIY book. BUT, the difference in this book from others is that instead on talking all the airy fairy ideas in the air, most of its ideas are backed by psychological data and they come in bite sized chapters. The writing style is very simple and easy to understand. Their analogies are realistic and almost anyone can relate to and best of all, every page of the book just gets ideas pumping into your head; you just feel like hopping up and about to get some work done!
Who is it for?
People who feel that they can’t reach their full potential; People who want to do even better; People who are having relationship problems; People who want to know the art of negotiation better; People who generally want to be better people (:
Would I recommend it?
….I’m blogging about it..what do you think.
Ok don’t wait any more…go grab a copy. I heard there are two sequels to it: Relationships and Give Me Time. I’m definitely getting my grubby fingers all over them.
