When we show our respect to other living things, they respond with respect for us.

“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”
― Albert Einstein

Today was one of those days that I witnessed the gap we have as human beings.Although God tries his best to make us all equal in our different capacities, its so absurd that many of us try our best to exaggerate the gap we have  between us. Young or old, we should all be in position to treat all people as ends in themselves other than means to an end. The good news is that whenever you respect someone, its a sure way to earn the respect that you deserve right back from them. And of course not forgetting that you have  to respect yourself as well.

I for one however have realized that many of us mistake fear for respect. If you cannot respect yourself, trust me on this, You will never get the respect that you claim. So, why not play it the easy way?

I know someone may wonder how i ended up with this today but as i made my movements around the city, I witnessed that we still need a few louder lessons on this. On a sad note, many of us are well convinced that respect goes along with “position” or “authority”. Now this belongs to another world that existed before us. As of this century, we should all know that the best way of getting the well deserved respect is by respecting ourselves and respecting other people.

Where on earth in this century does someone in an office despise a client to the extent of deliberately pushing them out yet they were there only for a sole reason f getting a service? What happened to the Customer Care and Public Relations departments? Do they only bear titles and that’s all?

OK, you think you have understood what I am talking about? Now this is the annoying bit of it. The offender (read the one who failed to respect someone only defends themselves by reminding the offended that they don’t know what they are required of in their responsibility. This should only be a reminder that everyone is a boss in a different way and different area. Therefore, you never know who you will meet at your next step. My urge is that we treat all people just the same way we would want us to be treated so that there are no cases to settle whenever we meet them again. Remember what goes around comes around. It doesn’t cost anything anyway!

A Wish


I lie on the ground,
and stare into space,
the stars start to move,
into the shape of your face.

I see you there now,
looking down at me,
with that cute little smile,
that I like to see.

You say “close your eyes”,
“tell me what you see”,
I see only two people,
just you and me.

We’re walking the shoreline,
with our feet getting wet,
the horizon turns pink,
as the sun starts to set.

We make love through the night,
on that white sandy shore,
then I hold you while thinking,
I could want nothing more.

Oh I wish I could be,
in that one special place,
as I lie on the ground,
and I stare into space…

Battle of my life

Today is one of those days that I considered myself an unbeatable fellow, my personal hero. It s never easy for me and it never goes down the easy way but when i arise and shine in the wee hours of the morning, I declared “self” a hero immediately at the first step out of my bed. There has been many other days that start just like the same way but today just takes the lead.

If its a confession,  I for one, i fall victim when it comes to leaving a cozy comfy bed at every start of a new day.For many of us, this is a no-go area.  Good things is that I am constantly reminded of the fact that I am not alone. Almost each one of us, (yes, including you reading this now) has fallen victim of this at one time or another. Today was however a fresh battle of its own.

As my alarm went and I kept on postponing it, someone was also at my side to ensure that I jump out within the shortest time possible, and at this moment, this was my enemy number one.

But there is this one effective weapon I discovered, trust me it works like a magic!

When ever this happens to you, try this out. Think of one moment you felt you have achieved something. Reflect on your achievement and the feelings  you  had towards it. You may also think of that one figure that  inspires you, on whom you look on, think of how many hours of sleep they take in a day and gauge yourself. More still, think of how long they could sleep at the moment they were at your level.

It will push you and you will rise with the same enthusiasm that you had back then(o, and along a wide smile!).

And when you set foot on your first activity of the day, it will take just the same energy it took you to leave your comfortable zone, trust me on that. I have used this same method myself and it works just like a magic.

Ask me, I can testify.

The Power of Decision Making

Ever been there?

Iam talking about one  of those moments that you conflict with yourself , the moment you get an influx of ideas in your mind yet you have to pick on but one. Iam not talking about the moment when you have some external powers limiting you on this. No! This time its just about the  powers within you, whenever this arises, just the fact that the battlefield of the mind is on.

Many  a time, we tend to take it so rough on ourselves that we forget to notice that we still have the powers that mean so much to us. Once these powers are unleashed from us, amazing stuff happens. Now i know you may think this is rocket science or something of the kind, but as a matter of fact, this happens all around the globe.

Whenever such a moment arises to you, remember that decision making is one of those innate powers that we don’t have to search for elsewhere but from right from deep within us.

Don’t rush yourself, don’t force it for its always an automatic move that helps one make such a decision. And once you make it through, its one of the most honest moments to be totally proud of you.

Beware though, to a couple of people, this situation irritates, I mean, why on earth would someone human not be in position to take a decision that affects them? Once this happens, it will only be at the rare end that one can make a decision that affects a big number of people.

As a matter of fact, if u ever want to make it to this point, listen to your heart. Don’t give way to the discouraging voices around you, give it your all. Take the lead, Take control,move out of the comfort zone, and make that decision upright and up-straight because you have all it takes. You will all of a sudden feel you are at the top of the world as your own hero.

I for one, I am working on this currently, and once I make it to the top, I will make no more announcements for the powerful reality.

Good luck as you go your way.

I Will Never Give Up!!

I will never give up

No matter what the odds are

No matter what people say

No matter how far

I will never give up!


If I throw it away time after time

If I am one step behind try after try

If I miss dime after dime I will never give up!

Even when it seems all over

Even when no one else believes

Even when it seems I can go no further

I will never give up!


For I know I have strength within,

For I know I can persevere

For I know that I can win,

I will never give up!


Because it’s someone else’s fault,

Because I am settling for good enough,

Because I fear that I will fall short,

I will never give up!


There is so much I can still do

There is too much talent to waste

There is so much in me that I want you to see

I will never give up!


Why squander all of my hard work and dedication?

Why not show the world that I am a fearless baller?, huh?

Why quit when I still have the opportunity to go on?

I will never give up!


If I do, I will not be the best me that could live,

If I do, I will never know what I am capable of

If I do, I am not giving the world all I can give

I will never give up!

Listen to your heart!

Listen to your heart.
If you can’t hear what it’s saying in this noisy world,

MAKE TIME for yourself.
Enjoy your own company.
Let your mind wander among the stars.
Try. Take Chances.
Life can be messy and confusing at times,
But it’s also full of surprises.
The next rock in your path might be a stepping-stone. 

Be happy.
When you don’t have what you want, want what you have.
That’s a well-kept secret of contentment.

There aren’t any shortcuts to tomorrow.
You have to MAKE YOUR OWN WAY.
You need to know where you’ve been, too.
And if you ever get lost, don’t worry.
The people who love you will find you.
Count on it.
Life isn’t days and years.
It’s what you do with time and with all the goodness and grace that’s inside you.
The kind of life you deserve.

The woman in the mirror

The woman in the mirror,

Looking back at me,

Has character and charm,

That only I can see.


The lines on her face,

Are small but still there

Freckles and rosy cheeks

Are seen when bare.


She’s grown from a child

In a very short span

To the loving, caring woman

That I’m proud  I am.


The weight and the stress

I can see with a glance

Makes me remember the moments,

the feelings,

and definitely the circumstance.

The little girl is there,

still in her eyes

They’re  bright and vibrant

And not hidden by lies.


The woman in the mirror,

Looking back at me,

Makes me proud everyday

And that’s the key.

You deserve to get a life (“me time”)

Nobody can be strong enough to handle whatever comes in life! Even the ones characterized as strong and brave. There comes a day, a time in your life when you really feel weak, helpless and no matter how hard you try to stay calm and serene, nothing pulls through.

There are times when you feel like letting go of everything and without a care in the world, you just let the winds of time blow you in any direction.

Nobody is perfect! We all know that but we should learn to accept it more often than we do. Sometimes we are misguided into thinking that we can master situations, manage everything, and so we adapt to a ‘ savior complex. Because we believe that we can save people, we give the impression of being the strong one and never accept our weaknesses—that we can’t do everything.

We must stop being the burden bearer or procrastinators because we care too much; a time comes when you lose yourself trying to please every soul you know to the point where you forget that you also are human with feelings, needs and with burdens of your own.

This stops you from living fully. Try for once to express your thoughts and feelings about something; cry, shout and scream if you have to. This won’t make you a quitter, a traitor or a doush bag, it is only human nature.

You know the kind people  always being taken advantage of, sometimes their deeds are taken for granted and the very people they try to help say harsh things about them.

I am not saying that being kind, strong and brave-hearted is bad. I am only saying that you have to accept to live within your limits, otherwise you will crack under the pressure to please everyone.

Get a life, learn more about yourself, feel vulnerable? go on vacation, and travel the world if you can — it’s so normal. Always remind yourself that even heroes do need heroes.
