Wise or Wicked thoughts

thinking believing

All of us cannot move onto something brighter and better, if we don’t leave the stuff that is blocking us from moving forward. Clear your head or your heart, let go of the old thing, only take what you learned from it. You cannot take everything with you the good or the bad; we can only learn and try to follow the lesson.

Doors will close, people will walk away… So what!! You are still there and you will always be – with yourself!! Be adult enough to know no one stays forever, no one.. Keep moving forward with yourself, be a better person to all except ignoring the people who ignore you or disrespect you or dislike you or even better the ones who have no time for you.. (I am not going to ask you to love them) 🙁

We all have permanent people in our life (mostly family) and of course the loved ones, friends and some well-wishers who haven’t changed over the years. The rest are just tagalongs, pileons, egocentric, selfish, pretenders, losers, cribbers, users, manipulators, exploiters and self-seekers!!!

A very close friend always told me, “Ask God, to remove people from your life who no longer serve you, lift you or contribute to your well-being.” And if they are meant to stay God will keep them. If not, I guess they weren’t meant to be. Closure helps or else the bull shit will follow you.

Appreciate and enjoy every experience. Never run or jump after something. Of course all this comes with maturity or perhaps after you turn 40!! 🙂 You cannot make anything work just because you want it to work for you, be it a machine or a human – if its broken it’s broken!

Be humble and rest will follow (along with the right people in your life – the permanent ones (who love you and are supposed to be part of your life no matter how big or small role they play).

Dough Cafe / Bakery

February 8, 2015  |  Rants and Raves  |  No Comments

Dough Cafe and Bakery is one of the new additions in Kuwait where new restaurants are sprouting like mushrooms especially along the shoreline. This newly opened restaurant is located in the Miral Mall in Mangaf. I was there for breakfast, and I was totally impressed with the location and the decor (very cute and cozy) perfect sea view and right feel of the sun and the breeze.. But, yes the big but..

As always excited and comfortably going thru the menu, which comes in a shape of a huge placemat. I was ready to try more than I thought I could eat – so I asked my server to get in my order and made it pretty clear in what order I wanted to be served too.

First I wanted my Booboo Buns, to be followed by Camel –wings (Cinnamon, Sugar & Lemon and Nutella for toppings) and then the main “Eggs” Scrambled Avocados and Huevos Rancheros, of course with black American coffee.

The server took the order and went for a “whatever” break – so my eggs arrive first and I was not happy – I sent it back. Finally the Booboo buns arrive and I enjoyed them, but I was kinda worried about my eggs getting cold in the kitchen the whole time. Then came the Camel-Wing (I would describe it as an Indian version of ‘Puris’ with the relevant toppings.

In any case, we asked for the eggs, looked fancy however it was cold and Guess what? My Huevos Rancheros never arrived. Spoke to three different waiters, then the manager – who apologized and said it’s a new restaurant and new staff, hence the delay and miscommunication in the service. Well, you know what that is certainly not my problem. I went there with the intention to enjoy my morning, my breakfast, the view, the company and I was extremely disappointed..

So even before thinking of shooting some more pictures of the place or trying they range of cakes, I asked for my cheque and continued with my day

This is the so called food revolution happening in Kuwait however, is anyone really paying importance to what the customer wants or how the staff should be well trained before you can open to the public.  Looks can deceiving – that’s what I learnt!!

What do you think?

Being in a relationship does not equate to being in love!! Or does it ?

Happy Weekending Everyone!!

Week 3/52 done

January 20, 2015  |  Jan 2015, My Thought Bank, Rants and Raves  |  No Comments

Well we are in week 4 of 2015 already and time seems to be slipping away quickly, it is almost end of January. So, do what needs to done, say what needs to said, be nice, be kind, be awesome, no lies, accept the situation, deal with reality, be yourself, hurt less. You can delay things but time will not. When you say you don’t have the time, it means you do not want to do. Time is tiptoeing away, and only each one of us can see it takes more than it brings. Communicate, know and trust another don’t mislead, misjudge, mishandle and misguide.

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”

Have a great Monday !

Week 2 & a Happy Lohri 2015

January 13, 2015  |  Jan 2015, My Thought Bank, Rants and Raves  |  No Comments

Well today is the beginning of week 3 of the 52 weeks we have this year in 2015. (http://www.epochconverter.com/date-and-time/weeknumbers-by-year.php)

I am still in a recharge mode.. It hasn’t quite dwelled on me the whole New Year thing and luckily no resolutions so no rush to achieve any goals. However intentionally or not, I have not been a social media kind of person lately, (which usually isn’t me) and to be honest I didn’t realize I haven’t posted anything in 2015 on fb and insta.. that makes it almost two weeks (lol) but thanks to a dear friend who sent me this yesterday. And makes me realize life goes on with or without a lot of things we take for granted on a daily basis.

hey

 

Well thank God for thoughtful friends who miss your presence, even if it is not in person at least the whole idea of knowing that we are still alive and kicking makes a big difference. And thank you my dear friend, it means a lot to know I am thought of even if we don’t meet or talk. Out of sight is not always out of mind :-).

Having said that I wish everyone a very Happy Lohri today – and for those who are wondering what is this Happy Lohri all about – Check out my last year’s post Happy Lohri 2014.

Is She?

shes not

Look for someone that burns you with passion and drowns you with affection. Focus on her if she excites you, if she wants love, attention, passion, honesty, companionship and a conversation that keeps you sane.

Woo hoo!! Have a great weekend 🙂

Can you relate to this? Do you ever feel this way? Do share your views!!

words

“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them, words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear.”

Stephen King, Different Seasons

Happy thinking and Happy Countdown to 2015!!
