I normally don’t like it when it’s raining. Rain means traffic jams, floods, puddles, mud, and stranded passengers. I don’t like it!
But there are also days when I want rain to pour down from heaven. When I feel the need for my soul to be cleansed, I think of rain and how the world seems to look differently after it rained.
Elsa is a very fickle-minded person! She will not settle for anything unless she has a number of choices in front of her. So when a common friend of ours asked for my help in getting her something for her coming 35th birthday, I told her to do one thing. Go online to check some musical intruments then click their “Send for our free catalog.”
I reminded our common friend that with Elsa, it’s all about choices. It’s all about having so many things to choose from, otherwise, it’s settling for the least best of all.
So that’s what our common friend did. Send for the catalog and let Elsa choose herself. It’s a foolproof way, that’s for sure!
‘Cause there’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb!
There are so many problems that we face in every single day. We can either sink or swim, it all depends on our choices. I do believe that what matters most is how we deal with the problems. How we find ways to overcome each and every one of it.
As the song says, it’s the climb.
I am not into jewelries. You can easily notice that when you talk to me because I don’t wear jewelries. I am more of a watch person. Someone from my past joked that a man should give me watch with diamonds instead of plain jewelries. I said yes to that.
While growing up, my parents would shower me and my siblings with jewelries. Not the expensive ones but still legitimate gold or silver. I don’t know why I outgrew wearing it. Maybe I am wary of what might happen should I wear it outside. I don’t have a car and I just commute so it would be dangerous to be wearing jewelries lest a snatcher sees it and trouble will surely come my way.
We all know how uncertain the future is. It is what’s making it scary for those of us growing older each day. The uncertainty of the future and the life we are facing then. Will it be as comfortable as we have now? Will it be better? Or are we looking forward to a hard life? I hope the last one won’t happen to anyone.
So how do we make certain something uncertain? By preparing for it the best way we know how! Anticipate the bad things that can happen and stock on the stuff that can make our lives easier. Invest. There’s time deposits and other sure fire schemes. Save up! There are banks to put our monies at. And don’t burn bridges. You never know when you will need in the future someone you met now and have been rude at. You don’t want karma to hit you when you are at your weakest, right?
Actually, you don’t want bad karma period. Make certain the uncertain. Prepare!
But also don’t forget to enjoy the present.
A friend of mine told me that she uses a dock for her iPad so she can listen to the playlists she has there. She has a very eclectic taste in music so she doesn’t tune in to local radio stations as much. She loves listening to her choice songs especially late at night when she is at her creative best!
She paints, sketches, draws. She does it manually and digitally. Late at night is when she does her best work, when everyone is already fast asleep and it’s relatively quiet around the house.
Right now, she is busy canvassing for the best offer on online printing.
Her iPad is her companion and the music coming from it.
