In Life, the final result is a great equalizer for all, so enjoy the journey, do your best.
Money and life is analogous to lubricant and automobile.
I was waiting for assignment 5 for Blogging 101 to arrive and then I suddenly realized, if Time is money, I am wasting my money. I became sad and depressed. A small voice inside me started chirping. Must be the effect of wasting all those minutes looking at the beautiful blog post of the visiting birds by our fellow bloggmate, Randall Krzak. The small voice was saying, time is money but money can’t buy you happiness. Yes, happiness. Immediately I became happy again. Then I became thinking about money again. What is about money that makes us slave to it? I think money is the lubricant that keeps our life moving smoothly. Like an automobile to run smoothly, we need oil (lubricant). Without that the car engine will break down midway through the drive. But where is the oil? Out of sight and out of mind. Most essential but not being flaunted outside. Oil does not make the auto look beautiful. There are many other components that must mesh well to produce the beauty that is a eye candy to behold and becomes the ultimate driving machine. In life also, we need money to keep running our life smoothly. But it can not be everything. We need other things in life to make us happy, including spending time with our bloggmates in cyberspace sometimes.
That does not mean winning the record powerball lotto on Saturday will not make me happy, the thought of winning itself is making me salivate. If I win I will hire somebody to type for me.
Communication is essential to ensure that relationship does not regress to being strangers.
Strangers when we met
Strangers When we met Many moons ago Fellow travelers Seen the world Happiness and pain Together Communicated Without talking Understood Without speaking Long walks In silence Eyes focused On different horizons Road diverged Without our knowledge Need to talk To communicate Understand Before become Strangers again
People migrates to unknown lands, not knowing what lies ahead, leaving their hearts behind. What matters is that enjoy the ride and at the end of the journey, make the destination your own.
I left my heart
Where it will end
Heart heavy with pain
Made my home
In that distant land
Does it matter
Enjoy the ride
Embrace the unknown
At journey’s end
Make the destination
“appetite for rhino horn is so great that it now fetches up to $100,000/kg, making it worth more than its weight in gold. (Horns average around 1-3 kg each, depending on the species.)”
I can’t speak up for myself, will YOU
Resolved to make a list of New Year Resolutions to be broken. Made the list, so I kept my resolution.
Every year, by Dec 31st, I always make a list of New Year’s resolution with the full intention of breaking the list at the first opportunity. This year was no different, I did resolve to make the list for 2016. I did keep my resolution and I have a blog post to prove it. This year I upped the ante. I created a list of my own Ten Commandments for 2016. You may visit my post “My Ten Commandments” in by blog https://fleetingmuse.wordpress.com.
Building a long term relationship need some hard work upfront.
Blogging 101: Day 3: 5 Tags and 5 Follow
Well, that is easy, you would think. 5 Follows, piece of cake. 5 tags, no sweat. In reality, who do we want to follow? We want to follow someone or something we like or we want to follow someone or something that is complete anti-thesis to what we like to get a different view point. Decisions, decisions. To complete the assignment, it is easy. Just follow your heart. To build a long term relationship, well like any long term relationship, it will require some hard work upfront. One of the added assignment of day 3 was to post a blog. I had been posting regularly in my blog site ( https://fleetingmuse.wordpress.com) for last few weeks and I thought about what to post. The result was a poem “To The Author of the Book I am Reading” that I have posted in my blog. Assignment complete, waiting for the next one.
