I wanna share one of the best conversations I have had recently. There are so many to put on paper. But there are some that just Hold a SPECIAL Spot.
So just the other day I come home from work and my son as usual hugs me and STARTS telling me about everything really…
As usual I listen. Then he tells me he wants to use the bathroom. When I take him he asks me:
Me: yes Alex..?
Alex: mommy….?
Me: yes….?
Alex: will you take my…

A Tale To Tell…

Last time I was really feeling lovey dovey as you could tell from the posts but today I deviate just a little and talk about, well….Life yet again…so let’s indulge in it please..with a smile..

Oft times we go through some situations that are really inevitable if you ask me but nonetheless manage to spark something in us. A lesson maybe? A wake up call maybe?It depends on the situation. So this got me thinking of a little tale between the Frog and the Scorpion. I hope it sparks something in you as it did for me. This is day to day happenings. It’s not new at all. But as humans we need constant lessons till we learn. Here goes:

“There is this frog about to swim across a stream. And there’s this Scorpion, sitting on a Rock. He asks the frog for a ride/ swim/ jump/…across the water. Now the Frog is A helpful guy. He doesn’t like to see anyone else in a fix. But he’s afraid the Scorpion is going to bite him. So he says, ‘All right. I’ll give you a lift. But only if you promise not to Sting me. “

Well, the Scorpion agrees to the deal of course, and he jumps on the Frog’s back. Off they go, sailing across the stream. But once they get to the other side, the Scorpion curls his tail and gives the Frog a Sting. The Frog is dying; he doesn’t know what to do. ‘Why did you sting me? You Promised not to,’ he says. The Scorpion just laugh. He says, ‘why did you believe me, you dumb Frog? Because it’s your nature to trust. That’s why. And that’s the same reason I had to Sting you. I couldn’t help myself. That’s just my nature.’  

Does it ring a bell? I thought it might. And your guess is as good as mine why this had to be inked. Now off for some tea and my heavy woolen socks….

Musings and Feelings (Part 2)

So the continuation of my previous musings are yet again inspired by music. This time it’s Kenny G and a rather chilled out Friday evening. 

Just the other day I came to yet again come to fully understand the meaning of “hanging/living in the moment!”

Experiences and interactions shape us in ways we only come to know of later. All in All I know I want to be bolder and Braver in this Life. After all it’s just one life. 

Before I deviate so much and talk about life I have just remembered my previous musings were on Love. This ever interesting subject. 

So It got me wondering……….what’s wrong in telling it as it is? I mean like when you love/like someone? Do you want to wait for a sign in the moon or something? I believe that it can take a minute to like someone and also say it as it is. Those feelings you feel you have to reveal them. 

Again I say out loud that I don’t think it’s wrong to be Able to say I love you to the people I love and just how much I do and with All the fullness and wholeness my Heart can Hold. I want to be able to say I was brave enough to put it all on the line, and I risked being cracked open again and again. To say I was brave enough to have the conversations that made me uncomfortable, so I can say I truly put myself out there, with every single soul who graced my life with their presence. Despite hurt, heartache, and loss. Such is Life, a series of risks!!

As Kenny G Intelligently winds down “the Joy of Life,” I can’t help but mull over some of this. Love is here to stay. I am just learning different variations of it. As it comes so it shall be handled. Meanwhile, at the moment the most important thing after all is said and done is to hold on to the hope that Love always finds a way. It does!!!


I have been itching to write something. This past days have had their fair share of madness. …with a splash of bliss…What can I say, I chose to scream in this rollercoaster that is life, well, not entirely so becoz there were some highs…


“Getting knocked down in life is a given.

Getting up and moving forward is a

choice.”- Zig Ziglar

I can relate to the above saying. Even after all the dips or the highs, you just have to move forward. Am glad that I can do this not alone but with some cherished people. 

No matter what, I choose to smile knowing someone somewhere has got my back.,.

Why am writing is because as a human being,taking time to appreciate is a hussle so I have made a point of writting down my prayer and what am thankful for(which is a whole lot).

Now I know I don’t need to forgive until I need to forgive. I don’t need nerves of steel until I need nerves of steel. I don’t need to call on my reserves of compassion or fortitude or faith until I have used up everything else.

When am healthy and happy, I will make sure that I dance or hit the gym or whatever that will boost the adrenaline(coffee??..anyone?!!)
