Do you have an Angel and a Demon in you?

April 30, 2012  |  Rants and Raves  |  2 Comments

I am sure a lot of you would agree with me, but how many of us would admit to the fact that we can be an extreme kind person, loving, compassionate and then without a warning we can be someone who is dreadful, despicable, terrifying, alarming, and fear-provoking!

I wouldn’t want to give it a scientific term (and start looking up at Psychology and Self- help books) but I am curious to know, if this is something we all experience with our partners , siblings, friends – Can someone so upright, so perfect become so evil  and then before you know , transform back to normal.

I guess we are all suppressing a substantial amount of feelings and relevant information, and this influences your daily life in harmful way. You every now and then behave immaturely, or even harshly, at work and in relationships.

Personally this post is about asking ourselves the question – which we usually tend to act on behalf of others and be a hero – I just hope some of my readers leave their views on – Do you have an Angel and a Demon in you?

Are you hiding away secrets that can affect your life?

What brings you the feeling of PURE joy in good times and in bad times?

Have you fully welcomed life and understood your purpose?

Do your imperfections make you a lesser of a person?

When was the last time you created those special moments of TOTAL bliss for yourself?

Do you think your life is so far “wasted”? Or”spent, learning and gaining experiences” – to live with the truth is a choice you have to make; no one will do it for you.

Do you need to let go of your past memories that overshadow your today’s life?

Are you waiting for someone else to fulfill what you are longing for?

Are you aware of your mood swings and erratic behavior?

I think all of the above or at least some of it depends on how we act – so we are in control of the Angel in us and the Demon who none of us want to be.

So friends, let’s find a way to look for the missing piece of the puzzle that makes us complete, makes us happy, where we don’t have to worry about our ego getting in our way. As long as you know what it is that one thing you want to become or will become! Life is too short – so you better know what connects with you and what doesn’t!

Have a Thoughtful Day!

“Somebody That I Used To Know” – Gotye ft. Kimbra

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

[Kimbra:]
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on
somebody that you used to know

[Gotye:]
But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
And you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your
records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Somebody (I used to know)
Somebody (Now you’re just somebody that I used to know)

Good Morning!

I don’t know who’s been slower my computer or me .. 🙂 I thought I could use some time off to restore, refresh, recharge but it’s never enough and no matter how long you take a break from one thing, it leaves you back logged on a lot of other important issues/ stuff that you should actually be focusing on – I guess it’s time to catch up..  In short, keep moving on, don’t stop, let go, it’s no one else’s loss!

Whatever it is you or me are going through – all of it, “this moment will be just another story someday”.

So don’t let the trivial things of today weigh down your tomorrow just like it did yesterday…

Very often we get so DAMN involved in OUR own destination that we overlook to value the journey especially the kindness of the people we meet on the way. To understand and to appreciate is always overwhelming. Don’t ignore or postpone anyone or anything that needs your attention unless it’s going to kill you !!!!!

Happy Easter

I found this very interesting and inspiring article and I was fascinated to read more on it. Hence, I thougth it was worth sharing.

It all began in his childhood (around 1945) Volker Kraft saw a beautiful paschal decorated tree in his home town. So he wanted a tree like this. Kraft’s apple sapling sported just 18 eggs when he first decorated it for Easter in 1965. The Kraft family has been decorating their tree for Easter for more than forty years now. The number increased year by year; and by last year, the sturdy tree was festooned with 9,800 eggs, artfully decorated with everything from sequins to sea shells. This time, Kraft has reached 10,000 – and he says he’s stopping there

This is another example of making you dreams come true if you are truly determined to do so… nothing is impossible if you stick to it and deep in your heart you know you can do it.

Don’t you think this is just beautiful !! You can find the whole history on this at
