In my personal experience, these are not just words, it is the truth of life. When we are thankful and grateful, life becomes full of bounty and blessings.
What is one thing ( or one of the things) we cannot survive without?
Food! Yes, food. And if you’re like me, who loves food, you will appreciate these quotes.
There is no doubt the Bernard Shaw was a very intelligent person. Just look at the depth of his saying.
Another truth about life. We really cannot appreciate anything on empty stomach. It’s only when we are sated, that we can turn our attention towards the finer things of life. Like arts and music.
So true! If the technology can’t grant us this simple boon, what is the use of it. The real useful app to my mind( after WordPress app) would be where I can just download my favorite food and drinks from my phone or laptop. Without delay.
Ever felt grumpy? It definitely is due to being deprived of good food. Well-fed people are happy people, just don’t feed them too much as indigestion makes us feel lousy too!
The diet philosophy of the minions is spot on. I wouldn’t go as far as to eat a person but ……
I can frighten them into thinking that I might.
There is nothing worse than regrets at the end of life. And to have not eaten or enjoyed all the food we could have had, would be a hard one to carry to one’s grave.
In the end, a solution to all the complex problems of what to eat and what not to eat. Let the food decide! Whoever wins, takes the field.
A lighthearted post to put a smile on your faces, this Sunday!
Hope you enjoy.

The topic for this week;
If we consider what we do in life as a job, a chore or a responsibility, we can never enjoy that part of our lives. And it is a big part, almost 50% of our adult life. Choose a career or profession that you think you will enjoy working in. It will be the most rewarding experience of your life. I chose to be a mom and a homemaker. It was what I wanted and though it is the most difficult job on the planet, I enjoyed it. That is why I have no regrets about my choice.
I chose this one because of what I have been going through all my adult life. Being on a diet, or making healthy food choices can be daunting if it is an ongoing process. I have always had a weight problem and it was due to a metabolic deficiency in my body. I have spent almost 40 years, give or take a few, trying to keep my weight in the prescribed limits. Often without success. It is only lately that I realized that my approach is totally wrong. I need to eat for a healthy body and mind. Not for a slim figure which would be envy of others. Now I am choosing for myself, not others!
A hard lesson learned!

Life is full of confusion. Confusion of love, passion, and romance. Confusion of family and friends. Confusion with life itself. What path we take, what turns we make. How we roll our dice.
Sometimes I’m confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn’t obvious?
Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.
As the summer is drawing to an end, fall eagerly waits its chance to take center stage. I like fall and spring because of the temperate weather and the feelings of anticipation we get when something new comes into our lives. Each new season and every new phase of our lives has great potential. We just need to see it.

Is ambition a good thing?
Most people agree that we need ambition to achieve success in life. A life which has no purpose is like a rudderless ship, changing directions at every obstacle and every storm. Unless we have set a clear goal, we cannot reach it.
The first step is to believe in oneself. And then you build your life around that belief. Have implicit trust in yourself and your abilities and then set on your journey.
Add another ingredient to ambition, that of firm belief and hard work and you have the perfect recipe for success. Be persistent, be unwavering in you commitment and there is no way you won’t reach your destination.
We do need support in this journey but do stay away from small minded and negative people. They want to pull down others to their level. Positive people with generous attitude are the ones who will give you the positive reinforcement that is needed. Surround yourself with optimism and positive people. Cut out the negative and naysayers from your circle.
It is in our nature to try to achieve the goals which we set. Aim high. Aim for what others think unachievable and even if you don’t get there all the way, you definitely will achieve more than you or others thought possible.
Dreams and ambitions are what makes the future attractive. What we think and dream, we incorporate into our lives as our goals. Without something to reach for and attain, the journey and struggle of life becomes meaningless. If we don’t set a goal, all our effort would be futile. It will not be living, just surviving. There has to be something at the end of the road. Something valuable to us. And that will make all the struggle and effort worthwhile. So dream big! Dream and reach for the stars. Life will become a mission to achieve and realize those dreams.
Another debatable issue is that of being over ambitious. It sometimes happens that people are trapped in a situation where their own expectations can let them down. Always be aware of your own potential. No one knows you as you do! So don’t feel pressured to fulfill the expectations and ambition of others. Strive for what you believe can be achieved. Fulfill your own expectations.
This is a quote which to most people would seem paradoxical. Being realistic should be how we all live our life. But if we want to achieve something extraordinary, we have to push ourselves out of our comfort zone. We have to stop being realistic and start dreaming of something exceptional!
Are you ambitious?
Do you think having ambitions is a good thing?
Do you believe in pushing yourself to achieve greatness?
