Life’s beauty, life’s goodness, & life’s mystery

It’s been a busy week for me. So I decided to reuse an old post and turn it into a slideshow. I had fun creating it. And the final product turned out beautiful! I hope you enjoy! How was your week? Your amiga, Andrea p.s. – Would you like to see more posts in theContinue reading “Life’s beauty, life’s goodness, & life’s mystery”

He has the formula to being memorable

“If you could have one superpower, what superpower would you choose?” she asked. I thought about it for a moment. What would you have answered? I was expecting the usual interview question like “What are your strengths and weaknesses?” or “What makes you the best candidate for this job?”. Out of all interview questions I’veContinue reading “He has the formula to being memorable”

You know you can do better

She crumpled the paper without a care. “I don’t like it,” she said. Just like she crumpled the first paper, she crumpled the next. You are right if you guessed that those crumpled papers ended up in the trash. My friend crumpled her drawings every time she didn’t like them, in our high school artContinue reading “You know you can do better”

Do you remember what you wished for—

when you saw the shooting star or after you blew out your birthday cake candles?  Do you remember what you wished for after you tore the dandelion from the ground or when you tossed a coin into the fountain? I’m asking you this because I saw a candle that said A Thousand Wishes at BathContinue reading “Do you remember what you wished for—”

If we were having coffee, what would you tell me? I would tell you that

When Grief made itself comfortable in a chair during dinner, I would’ve told you: Hope does not exist. (Someone once told me that hope doesn’t exist. Because, according to them, it can’t be measured.)  Do you believe in hope? The thing is, Hope has so many definitions. Someone else shared this quote with me: HopeContinue reading “If we were having coffee, what would you tell me? I would tell you that”

Be always for learning

I love starting my sentences with the word “and”. But there’s some grammar rule that goes like this: Thou shall not start your sentences with “and”. Oh, really? So you can imagine my disbelief when I heard an English professor say, You can start a sentence with the word “and”. Me: You can?! How didContinue reading “Be always for learning”

Something different

Something interesting happened to me the other day. A tiny little green turtle made its way to my foot when I was walking at the park. My family and I stood there observing the tiny turtle making it’s way down the road. It was one of the most beautiful things that has ever happened toContinue reading “Something different”

What does positivity mean anyway?

“How do you want to feel?” is the question we should be asking ourselves instead of “What do you want to accomplish?” As I grow older, my goal has always been to be a happy person. To be a happy person, one must choose a positive attitude more often than not. I say more oftenContinue reading “What does positivity mean anyway?”

Why you should be grateful for your problems

You don’t feel grateful for the problem when it’s right in front of you. It’s later on in your life when you see its value. Sometimes we create unnecessary problems for ourselves. Then we come to find that there was no problem in the first place. It was all in our thinking and attitude aboutContinue reading “Why you should be grateful for your problems”
