Questions

Breakups are always a difficult thing to rationalise as every situation is so different and yet eeringly similar. Every relationship has its own unique trait and as such the breakup is unique. The underlying emotions however seem to be universal. That’s why we connect over music or written words that seem to have taken the words from your heart and put voice to it.
For me though, I find the causes for breakups so puzzling. What could separate two people who have found joy and love in each other? It’s such a …

The good in goodbye!

“Thank God I found the good in goodbye!” Ladies everywhere – can I get a full blown HALLELUJAH! I was sitting on my desk working on a million things at once when I first heard Beyonce’s song. Fresh out of a breakup that had my head spinning and my heart feeling trampled meant that I was more prone than usual to getting distracted. So over the last few months I had developed new ways of keeping my mind focused on a task. One way was listening to the radio in …

A hard look

With yet another year almost concluded, many are looking back at the resolution lists they came into the year with or at the very least, looking to how they can still salvage some points on their to-do lists for this year.  The last couple of years had some constants. The world economy is still in crisis and there are major dilemmas everywhere you turn.  The world cup came and went along with the pick for the next two world cup hosts.  There was unity through sports and attacks between North …

The pain of love

How do you know you truly love someone?  It is so easy to say ‘I love you’ when you get that beautiful feeling inside and everything is rosy.
The word love has been glamorized in the media and in our minds.  When we think of love, we imagine walks in the park, sharing a desert, dancing to music in the night, pillow fights, beautiful conversations, making love all night long and all the nice things portrayed in movies and novels.  These things are indeed beautiful and hence we believe love is …

Act the Fool

Isn’t life just grand?! Now I know everyone has one of those days where you’re just reflecting on things you’ve been through in your life.  People who have hurt you, things that you have had to struggle and fight through.
Well I’m having one of those moments.  I’ve been through some things in my time – some good, some bad and some were just plain ugly.  Now I’m talking about the kind of issues you go through that are so fat, so bald, so ugly you end up wondering ‘How did …

Rediscovering your worth

Have you ever been put in a situation where you felt your true worth was not being appreciated? Ever had someone disrespect you to the point where you were no longer angry or vengeful, just calm and collected? Well, if you haven’t, I have.
It was recently that I started re-evaluating the relationships I hold dear.  There are times in our lives when we place certain people on pedestals and no matter what they do to us, we can’t get angry at them because we see them through rose-tinted glasses and …

Road of life

Life is so much more than what you make it. That is the lesson I learnt over this weekend. As humans, we get so caught up in our own little bubble and it’s so easy to miss the direction in which those around us are moving. It’s like being on a road with people and being so wrapped up in your own experiences of the journey that you miss the fact that everyone else have turned with the bend of the road and you’re still walking straight.
I was on a weekend …

Wear them boots!

Guys all over the world – we need your help!  Women are coming from far and wide in need of your expertise.  They would like to know the reasons why it seems that the only view they can hold of the men around them is that they are ‘dogs’ – not because they want to view them in this light but because the men’s actions provokes this response.
I was thinking about this recently.  I was thinking of how we (as females) mostly see men as predators/hunters who once they’ve …

Eyes wide open

Voltaire once argued the existence of God using the example of a watch. He argued that there must be a God because he couldnt imagine a watch without a watchmaker. Now, Im sure that there are a million and one counter-arguements to his reasoning but let’s consider it for a minute. An argument that one could pose back to Voltaire were he standing where you are could be ‘why then do we have so many religions – all which can’t bear each other?’ Or maybe you would ask why noone …

How old are you?

It’s been a while since I’ve watched any television. I hadn’t been home long enough to turn on the telly and watch a program from start to finish. For the shows I do like, I might decide to watch it on my laptop at a convenient time but an active social life combined with a love of sleep has meant my telly has been neglected lately.
Last night though, I got home in enough time to catch the end of The Apprentice. Having nothing else to watch and not wanting to …
