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 !

The Boxes In The Hall

December 17, 2014  |  Music, My Thought Bank, Reads  |  No Comments

Sometimes poems can sound just like music and you just want to read them again and again

In every Room of our time together there is a box,
Of memories we shared,
Now is the time to pack away,
With Sadness and with Care.

The first is a simple smile,
Whenever I thought of you,
Neatly folded into four,
It’s the best that I could do.

Next are all the memories,
Of the times when we were two,
Wrapped with love one by one,
Sealed with tears as glue.

And then there are the butterflies,
I had when you were near,
Now in a cage of sadness,
And locked up with a tear.

Next are the times we kissed,
Each one wrapped with a sigh,
Placed next to a rolled up list,
Of all the times I’ve asked myself why.

Now to pack are the pieces of my heart,
Gathered in a pile,
Each one wrapped up tenderly,
And placed next to a distant smile.

Finally all the shattered wishes,
Placed in softly so no more can break,
Covering them over trying not to cry,
So they would not all ache.

Lastly walking round each room,
Closing each and every curtain,
Shutting each and every door,
Leaving behind each and ever pain.

Gathering up the memories we shared,
Making sure I’ve got them all,
Packing them softly because I cared,
Leaving them in the boxes in the hall.

Awakening

May 22, 2014  |  Quotes  |  No Comments

images We waste so much energy trying to cover up who we are when beneath every attitude is the want to be loved, and beneath every anger is a wound to be healed and beneath every sadness is the fear that there will not be enough time. When we hesitate in being direct, we unknowingly slip something on, some added layer of protection that keeps us from feeling the world, and often that thin covering is the beginning of a loneliness which, if not put down, diminishes our chances for joy. It’s like wearing gloves every time we touch something, and then, forgetting that we chose to put them on, we complain that nothing ever feels quite real. In this way, our challenge each day is not to get dressed to face the world but to unglove ourselves so that the doorknob feels cold and the car handle feels wet and the kiss goodbye feels like the lips of another being, soft and unrepeatable.

(Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening)

There is one missing and yet kneeling on one : Nothing stops him from doing what he wants to do.You cant always have everything but it is upto you how to make the most of what you have. So count your blessings not your money, Money you can borrow – Time you cannot.!

Children Full of Life

June 3, 2012  |  Odds and Ends  |  1 Comment

Good Teachers connect theory with life. Please take the time to watch these videos for “Children Full of Life”. There are in five parts.

In this award winning documentary, Mr. Kanamori, a Japanese teacher – teaches his children how to be compassionate, determined, thankful, everything about life, most importantly “to be happy”. A very unique way to teach, approach and connect with these little souls. He encourages the the 4th graders to write and talk about their inner feelings and share it with the classroom, this helps the children to realise the importance of caring for one another. Allow your children to care for they friends – no matter if they are in the same school, class, activity, bus, building or even community.

Just like the family is a very fundamental part of the child, so are their early years in school and role the teachers play in their lives. We can shelter our children from disappointments, however we should also let them be a part of them, by sharing them, talking about them, acknowledging them. If you do not face the disappointments of life with them now, they future disappointments will be more devastating.

Some things happen only once in a lifetime, try to avail every opportunity and live the moment if the moment makes you happy and teach the same to your children… It is absolutely alright to be naughty but be nice and be safe. Kids – you can crack jokes and be funny however do not crack jokes or bully other children. Let the children share they opinion not that of they mother’s or father’s..

Part 1/5 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=armP8TfS9Is

Part 2/5 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc7S8HAfDzk&feature=relmfu

Part 5/5 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FGdXEBcdh4&feature=relmfu (very touching!!)

Remember, they are children they will complain, misbehave, argue, make stupid faces… as long as deep down their know the values of respect, bonding with they old and new mates, making efforts is all that counts.. Hope it was worth sharing the videos!!

Time*Lifetime gift

The greatest gift you can give to a special someone is your TIME. It’s like you ‘re giving the portion of your life that you can never bring back.

The irony of life, we always start paying attention to life and esp people when they are gone!! I am sure just like me there are millions of people out there in the world who are actually searching for his all old, all time favourite songs and will be amazed to even notice some songs we actually forgot or just realised that it was actually sung by the Bee Gees..

Well – i am sure Bee Gees will end up with more likes, searches and even more sales to follow … however unfortunately Robin Gibb will never find out … “talented beyond even his own understanding”.

They say that in the second before our death, each of us understands the real reason for our existence, and out of that moment, Heaven or Hell is born. Hell is when we look back during that fraction of a second and know that we wasted an opportunity to dignify the miracle of life. Paradise is being able to say at that moment: “I made some mistakes, but I wasn`t a coward. I lived my life and did what I had to do.” Paulo Coelho

Creativity Week – Day 1 of 7

March 6, 2012  |  Creativity, Quotes  |  4 Comments

All it takes a little willpower, a little dedication and a bit of passion to continue to do something you did or enjoyed in the past and not get distracted by the mundane routine of our so called busy lives. So I decided to make some time and commitment to myself for at least a week.

There is an old saying, “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Just the act of getting started and at a glance you can tell if it was all worth your time and effort….

Well I totally think it is! I believe it’s all about overcoming the initial inertia, and then it’s much simpler to keep going. So Wish me luck and I hope I can remain Creative for the next seven days!!! {at least} 🙂
