Innocently Dumb

I am currently working for a particular thing that many people on this planet Earth will never ever have to sweat a tear for in their lifetime. I work for it, because I have been dreaming about possessing it since my childhood. I want it, because I feel at home when I am soaked upContinue reading “Innocently Dumb”

Not Willing To Let Go Yet

Applying for Canadian permanent residency has been the most tumultuous journey that I have ever been on. A process, which is, in comparison, a lot less demanding than the one in the U. S, that being said, more than seven years later, I am still nowhere near the final stage, where a period can beContinue reading “Not Willing To Let Go Yet”

I Despise My Own Arrogance

As I go along with my daily life, as I am gaining more self-confidence, I can’t help but also come to notice and to despise the increase of my arrogance.

There are many instances in our lives that we are not particularly proud of. The jealousy that we have towards a particular friend, the animosity that we feel toward a colleague, who has done us wrong, and the egotistic bravado that we have displayed rudely in public, due to our own insecurities. Although all theseContinue reading “Not Again”

Say No To Naysayers

Throughout my life, I have encountered so many naysayers. In front of them, things that get me excited and looking forward to a brighter future, my aspirations, can easily get shut down by their words of disapproval. My experiences in dealing with naysayers have taught me many things. One, in particular, that the act ofContinue reading “Say No To Naysayers”
