Cleaning Out The Undesirables

It’s time to turn a new leaf.

steamlining the friends list

I read somewhere (or maybe I heard — not really sure which) that in order to live a stress-free life, you have to get rid of the negatives in your life.

Easier said than done.

Human nature and the universe work together in keeping things balanced. There won’t be positives without the negatives … no good without evil … no Peter Pan without Captain Hook … yada … yada …

So, we are doomed. At least I am. I can never lead a stress-free life — ever. Ever?! Continue reading Cleaning Out The Undesirables

Bullies Everywhere

Seeing all the anti-bullying campaign throughout all media forms brought all the miseries and the various contemplative soul-searching I subjected myself to when I was young.

I’ve always been a survivor — it’s one thing that I am proud to tell people whenever some first-time acquaintance or stranger asks me what my strengths are. There are other strengths that I’m not going to go into detail now, but being a “survivor” tops the list.

There’s a story behind the word . . . behind that strength. It’s not just something I randomly throw around. It’s strangely funny how someone like me, who’s always been known to have such a strong personality can have a “bully story”. But I do and here it goes . . . Continue reading Bullies Everywhere

Walking On Tiptoes

I want to start by saying I’m sorry I’ve been neglectful.

I can blame this neglect of not posting as regularly here in my blog to the crazy crazy schedule I’ve been keeping lately. But, I won’t.

Why? Because every crazy minute spent was well worth it. I was able to finally meet — face-to-face — and spend 4 wonderful days with two of my favorite people in the world — my bosses (not kissing ass here — just telling the truth) plus my wonderful soul sister Cher. 

The bosses flew all the way from Israel to attend an event in Cebu, hosted by their friend Chris Ducker of Virtual Staff Finder, and extended their stay to spend time with me (ain’t that beat all!). And like a cherry on top of the proverbial sundae, we got to record a podcast episode for Inspiring Innovation Podcast with Meron Bareket. Check out the episode HERE

I might be antagonizing some people by writing this, but I’m going to do it anyway and try to be diplomatic about it as much as I can. Also, I promise to get to the point of this whole post once I air out a few of my suddenly disruptive annoyance.

You see, I’m sick of seeing people pretending to be someone else and obviously failing miserably. AND, the most irritating part is — they’re not aware of it. No one would even dare to let them know about it, too, which amplified the whole delusional belief. Therefore, these pretentious people continue to make a fool of themselves, making me cringe every time in turn. Continue reading Cool Factor

Natural Attractions

As routine goes, I always tune in to one of my favorite radio shows in the morning (every workweek) while I enjoy a mug of coffee or tea before starting work.

So, in a way, this post is related to the topics under discussion for a couple of days about a week or so ago.

The topics were — shall I say — things that have been debated and argued over since time immemorial. It’s engaging; there’s no doubt about that. But for some reason, I cannot help myself from rolling my eyes and mutter, “Here we go again.” This comment is in no way directed at the DJs — they are fantastic. It’s directed to most of the stoopid comments that are quite annoying.

What is it about?

So apropos, isn’t it? Considering that Valentine’s Day is just a stone’s throw away. 

But anyway, the topics might be too vague at some point and they could do with some explaining for the dim-witted folks — be more specific — because there are just too many factors to consider when the topic of beauty and attraction comes to mind. Just talking about attractiveness is so general, not to mention the different levels of attraction that one might get lost in answering the basic question: what’s your type?  Continue reading Natural Attractions
