What Is Commitment

Commitment is a promise that we make to others, and, more importantly, to ourselves in order to bring a specific goal to its fruition, regardless of the amount of inconvenience and obstacles that we have to deal with and to overcome along the way. Action speaks louder than words. This adage can not have beenContinue reading “What Is Commitment”

Faces In A Picture

Isn’t it too honest to admit that time and distance have the power to transform a group of family members into a bunch of strangers? My immediate family members are on a family holiday somewhere in Asia. One of them sent me a group shot of all of them, taken at a well-know tourist attractionContinue reading “Faces In A Picture”

Thought Of The Day

Love is beautiful. We can all agree on that. However, there is a time and a place for everything, including how and when it is appropriate to show love. Public display of affection is not unwelcome. If it is happening in a narrow space; more specifically, on a crowded street, where people are headed inContinue reading “Thought Of The Day”

Gosh, I Thought That You Would Be Taller

“Gosh, I thought that you would be taller, because your parents are tall.” I heard this statement a lot. Like I have a say in determining how tall I would grow up to be. My family members used to blame me for my lack of expected height for my decision to go on diet. IContinue reading “Gosh, I Thought That You Would Be Taller”

Needed Bonding Time

Living in a patriarch society, we often hear that a man’s place is not in the kitchen. Due to this biased, patriarchal tradition, men are raised and taught to go out to the world to work so that their families can be supported. If we have lived for awhile, we all know that we canContinue reading “Needed Bonding Time”

So Smile

Having worked in customer service and to deal with others, who work in it on a daily basis, I often wonder what is one basic thing that I would always require my employees to do at work if I ever were put in a position to manage a bunch of people in this industry. NowContinue reading “So Smile”

Get Married In Twenties

I just watched Kevin O’Leary, a Canadian entrepreneur, investor, journalist, writer, financial commentator and television personality, express his personal view on marriage on a Canadian talk-show. Kevin said that one of the regrets that he had in life was that he didn’t get married in his twenties. According to him, if he had had his children in hisContinue reading “Get Married In Twenties”

A Change Of Belief In Helping People, Who Lack Courtesy

Should we continue to help people, who rarely or never express any gratitude towards us for what we have done for them? I used to think that despite the lack of gratitude being shown, if we could, we should continue to help those in need. Now, I no longer uphold this belief in its entirety,Continue reading “A Change Of Belief In Helping People, Who Lack Courtesy”

Mannerism

Mannerism is important. Good mannerism is partially a contributing factor to making a good and lasting first impression. As someone, who cares about how to behave and talk appropriately in public, I tend to be quite judgy when it comes to how strangers present themselves in a public setting. Regardless of who we are andContinue reading “Mannerism”

Little Did I Know Until Now

Some people like to focus on the positivity, while some like to focus on the negativity. Some treat everyone they meet with the basic human courtesy and respect, while some don’t give a damn about how people, with whom they cross path, feel about their inconsiderate action and unwelcoming presence. To them, as long asContinue reading “Little Did I Know Until Now”
