Balance in life

If you don’t have a balance in your life, make sure to get a ‘scale’ and check your balance. Work and fun should be equal. Your time for yourself and everyone else should also be the same. You will live a great life if there is balance because that way you equally give attention to what’s truly important.

I wish I learned early on about this balance in life. Because you know, there is none in my life ever since I took the reins in the house. I would love to rectify the situation but I don’t know where to begin.

Maybe by giving more attention to myself now?

No to Stress! ;-)

One of the things that I really, really try to avoid is getting too stressed out. It happens to many people nowadays. I think the fast pace of life and the many unnecessary luxuries we want to get are making us so strung up we are forgetting to relax.

No to stress!

We can live simply. Work hard but play harder. We can make our weekends or rest days exclusively for relaxing and being with the love ones. We can sleep early to be able to wake up early and see the sun rise. We can invite our special someone to have coffee or tea with us and wait for the sun to set.

There are so many things we can do to avoid stressing ourselves out. I do think that to sum it all up what we can do is to live a simple life and be happy with what we have.



Think about this…

“Whether you believe in God or not does not matter so much,
whether you believe in Buddha or not does not matter so much;
as a Buddhist,
whether you believe in reincarnation or not does not
matter so much.
You must lead a good life.
And a good life does not mean just good food,
good clothes, good shelter. These are not sufficient.
A good motivation is what is needed: compassion,
without dogmatism, without complicated philosophy;
just understanding that others are human brothers and sisters
and respecting their rights and human dignity.”
- Dalai Lama -

Makes sense, right?

I always thought that if we only treat each other as brothers and sisters more then competitors in everything in this world, this planet we live in will be a better place for all of us.



This is life.


Good morning everyone! I love waking up early to see the sun rise. I also love waking up with the thought that I am surrounded by the people I love.

Happy Sunday to all!




Life is still good!

Don’t you think?

You are still breathing, right? There are so many people who are dying at this very moment and are fighting to stay alive. You have work later on, yes? I tell you there are so many jobless individuals who are worrying how to provide for their love ones. You have your love ones around you healthy and full of life. There are so many out there who just lost the reason for living.

It’s not rejoicing over the misfortune and tragedy of others. It is appreciating the things you have and being aware of the blessings that are right before your very eyes.

Smile! There’s a reason to…
