We listen to seek understanding.

Or at least we try to.

Yet it is not often easy.

But definitely worth it.




There are times when I am just walking down the street, minding my own business when suddenly I am struck by cluelessness.

As if everyone in the world knows what they are doing and why, and I am the only soul here who is entirely clueless.

Then I look around and think again.

Perhaps everyone else is as clueless as I am. And it’s OK.

No need to panic.


Ass vs. Class

Never sink down to their level is what I say to myself.

As Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”

Classiness is not letting them get to you.

Entering a conversation with an ass is the quickest way to become one.

Transformational vs Transactional

Over the past few days, I have had a number of discussions with different people on the often talked about topic of relationships.

I have come to realise that most relationships in life, are transactional.
You do this, then I will do that.
If you can be this, then I can be that.
If I am this, then you are that.

Sometimes, we meet people who transform us.
People who inspire us to be more.

Someone who challenges your notion of what love or friendship means.
Someone who mentors you, inspires you or questions you.

Someone who makes you want to be more.
Be better, be stronger and be YOU.

Thank you for being in my life.


Day 309 – April 9, 2013

Tuesdays are my tango days.
What a night.
Danced from 8:30 till 11:30 nonstop… My feet are sore but I am happy.
And coming home to a snuggly puppy… I am tired but happy.

Today, I am thankful for…

1. A very smooth start to my day.

2. Yet another great workshop with some really lovely people.

3. Eye candy.

4. My colleague Emily’s thoughtfulness throughout the day.

5. A new programme that worked out well.

6. The showcase breakfast was a huge success.

7. A glass of wine at the end of the day.

8. Happy dancing at my tango night.

9. My puppy sitting on my lap watching me type away on my iPad.

10. How warm my home feels with a dog in it.
