Men cry

a heart, a pair of lungs, veins with flowing blood... men have them. feelings and emotions... men have them. stress, heartache, frustration, disappointment, and pain.... men experience them.

breaking news: men cry!

men are just as passionate as women, and it's this passion that often generates tears. a man is not a boy because he cries. a man is not a woman because he cries. a man is simple alive, because he cries.

does society truly promote equality of genders? is the expression of some emotions reserved only for women? starting with me and with you, we have to change our world. we have to embrace men and support them at their weak moments. men need the support of other men, and men need the support of women. being human is something we all have in common.

as men, let's cry. as women, let's cry. tears don't discriminate. why should you?

Compliments

we live to receive compliments, yet we pretend as though we don't want them. in fact, when we get a compliment we often pretend as though we didn't expect it. we put on our best acting with our most surprised face.

we invest time, effort, and money to ensure we look good. we focus on the slightest details of ourselves to make sure we get noticed. our clothes, our shoes, our accessories, our face, our body, our hair, our scent, our home, our car, our job... we seek compliments. some of us even flaunt our children and our partner, so we can receive compliments.

there is another group, those of us who truly don't see ourselves in as positive a way as others see us, so compliments truly shock us. when they come our way, we are pleasantly surprised.

no matter which group we belong to, we all have the same thing in common... compliments get etched into our memory. we don't forget them. they consume our soul at the point in time. we relish in the moment. they are forever stored in the archives of our existence.

compliments give us life, whether we admit it or not. i welcome them... and so do you.

I see you

people only throw the stone that stands out. you are among so many other stones, yet somehow they always focus on you. why?... because you are not like everyone else. you are unique and they see it.
whether good or bad, human life revolves around those that stand out. social media is a perfect example. absorb all the negativity that comes your way. when you get thrown, always remember: it's because you stand out.
one day someone will realise you are a gem stone. until then, let them toss you. all that does is help you travel to a new experience, where you get the opportunity to stand out again.
i see you.... don't lose your value.

Empower yourself

if you want it, claim it. empower yourself and live like if you've already received it. no one will give it to you, you have to be bold, and seize it.

think like you've already achieved it. walk like you've already achieved it. dress like you've already achieved it. speak like you've already achieved it. in fact, guess what? you've already achieved it!! do whatever you have to do to get what you want. always make sure you are operating within the bounds of spirituality, ethics, the law, and kindness to others. once you maintain these as your navigational north, you can chart your course to your desired destination.

we buy clothes before we go to the event. we put on shoes before we go to walk. we set up the nursery before the baby is born. we jump before we use the parachute. have faith, visualise what you want and empower yourself. claim it.

eventually an interesting thing will happen. other people will start to see you the way you see yourself. others will start to treat you the way you treat yourself. your perception will become their reality.

empower yourself!

Face your fears; be fearless.

why do we tremble in the face of our fears? no matter what your fear is, the absolute worse that can happen is that you can die. as such, we need to ask ourselves why are we imprisoned by our fears, if we happen to have a fear that absolutely cannot result in death. for example a fear of failure, rejection, embarrassment, money loss, public speaking, the dark, commitment, relationships, etc. etc.... the interesting thing is that most of us do not fear death. before i prove this, let's take a look at some the fears that actually have some degree of risk of death, no matter how very, very small that risk is, depending on the situation: the fear of flying, heights, spiders, dogs, snakes, confined spaces, thunder and lightning, injections, etc. etc.... how often do we make plans for tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, even next 5 years?... and we go to bed at night, and comfortably close our eyes with the expectation that we will be alive the following day. clearly we do not fear death. tomorrow is promised to no one, yet we live our lives fearlessly in the assumption that our heart will always continue to beat. we do not fear death, and maybe such faith is good, so let's harness it.

every day we awake and open our eyes, it is one extra day bonus. make that day count. confront the fears that may face you, and overcome them. be the lion tamer of your mind. be the lion tamer of your day. you have the power.

Friend zone

be your own best friend. this is something i always say.

many of us have at least one friend who always wants from us and never gives to us. they always want our time. they always want our listening ear. they always want our shoulder to lean on. they always want our money. they always want our favours. they always want us to help them fight their battles. they always want us in their corner.

you are awesome! i commend you for still being a friend to that person. compassion isn't always easy. at times we have to force ourselves to be compassionate in spite of. however, we have to face the reality that friendship isn't always mutual. the friends we care deeply for don't always care as deeply for us. the friends we always put first, don't always put us first.

is our friend really our friend? while we are selfless, they are selfish. in their world, it's all about them. in spite of it all, we should love unconditionally, and be altruistic; and never give to get back. however, we must always ensure that we don't allow ourselves to be abused. we can't blame our friend for such abuse. we allow it, so we have to blame ourselves.

let's love ourselves enough to face certain realities. we have less friends than we think. don't use the term 'friend' loosely. be a friend to yourself first, then simply love others unconditionally.

Break the glass

no one has accomplished it before, but you can. break the glass.

you can't see your future success, because you've been looking through an obscured lens of doubt. break the glass.

you've been sipping on the same drink of procrastination. break the glass.

confined and contained you have been. no one else can see your walls of captivity behind those decoy smiles of yours. break the glass.

if you always look at life as either half full or half empty, you will always accept mediocrity. break the glass.

Love makes the world go around

when your day starts in love, very little can spoil your morning. when you know your day will end in love, the afternoon hours can't pass quickly enough. when you don't feel love, somehow your day becomes gloomy. somehow that is the day forces of negativity seem to attack you. love is spiritual. love is energy. human beings are most energetic and alive when we are fueled by love.

every love experience is unique, yet, love is the same anywhere in the world, in any language. when we open our eyes in the morning, we first look to connect to love. when we lay in bed at night, before we close our eyes, we look to connect to love. it is these love connections that put our lives into motion.
apart from the few exceptions who thrive on solitude, persons who have never felt the love of another are often sad, cynical, or numb. they spread this in the air around them and affect all those who come into their contact. it is at these very moments we should embrace those persons and love them. everyone deserves love.

love is an action word. when you receive it, return it in double measure. put your love into motion.

Your place in the universe

you are a star. do not allow anyone to trample you into the ground. rise up! spread your wings and fly. soar pass the clouds. soar into orbit. having a bird's eye view of your life is great, but why make the sky your limit? transcend your mind into space and enjoy the view from there. what is your place in the universe of your life?
are you like the planet earth? sustaining the lives of many persons, some of which ill treat you and take you for granted? do you have some unexplained gravitational force that continually draws people towards you?... the same people who walk all over you.

are you like the moon? small but you make yourself visible. you shine and romanticise all those who take the time to focus on you. however, the truth is, the light you show to others does not emit from inside of you. you are merely reflecting the light from another source. there are times you are dejected and eclipsed, and become obscure.

are you like the sun? at the center of the universe of life around you. your radiance is generated by you, and you erupt with passion, shining like a beacon, and living life with 'flair'. the grey clouds of life will come, but each time they do, you boldly stand your ground until they fade away. you are bigger than any cloud anyway.

life is beautiful., but always remember life can be taken away from you at any moment. enjoy each breath. enjoy each heart beat. enjoy life. enjoy your place in the universe.

Unity

how united is our world? united nations? is this truly our goal? are all the countries of the world devoted to stopping wars; stopping trade disputes; stopping border conflicts; stopping sanctions? why do some countries try to flip others upside down? is world peace really on the agenda of all our countries? what about all those summits and all those conferences? is the eradication of global poverty and global hunger an actual common objective of all our countries? united nations???.... hmmm... is it that global inequity, global instability, economic disparity, and power imbalances are necessary to sustain world trade and global economics? united nations? is it that some of our world leaders recognise that maintaining a separation between the haves and the have nots, the developed and the developing, those who come 1st and those who come 3rd in the world, are critical to fueling the global socio-economic flow.

both science and economics teach us that for sustainable flow to happen, there must be a high and a low; tgere must be an elevation and a depression, there must be a supply and a demand; there must be unequal allocation of resources. isn't it interesting that a leading definition of the word 'politics' is the "allocation of scarce resources." has global politics been adequately allocating 'scarce' global resources? is our globe united? united nations???... hmmm.... maybe we are trying to be too ideal. let's step away from the macro level a bit, and take a look at the micro level. is your country united? is your community united? is your workplace united? for many of us, not even our family is united.

start small... rebuild your broken bridges. lend a hand to someone in need. unity starts with just two.

Apple biters

some people just go around biting apples then discard them for a new one. they have no intention of spending the time to experience reaching the core. the more rosy the apple, the more likely it will be a victim. once bitten and abandoned, the victim becomes dark.

be aware of these serial biters. they come into your life to use you, and to satisfy their curiousity, and to occupy their time for a period. protect your core your heart should be guarded and not left exposed.

once you see a potential victim of an apple biter, you need to speak up and warn them before it's too late. whether you are a friend, a parent, a sibling, a coworker, a neighbour; it really doesn't matter, you need to protect those you care about. i know it's hard at times, because you go in with good intentions and you may be pushed back with aggression, but at least you tried to do your part.

we need to love ourselves enough to not allow others to use us. beware of the apple biters.
