So, the other day, I had a stupid moment. The kind that is funny when it isn’t about you :)…
I had swapped cars with my best friend and on this very very hot, absolutely ridiculously sunny day, I was in a mad rush.
I got into the car, put the key into the ignition and started it, but the gear refused to engage into drive, I tried and tried and tried but it just didn’t budge. I started to sweat, I was running extremely late and I just couldn’t have this happen to me right then.
I called bestie. “I can’t engage the gear…something must be wrong, I’m running super late, so I’m going to leave the car and uber to my meeting”
There are many topics being discussed as 2015 comes to an end and 2016 rears its head, but the common factor is definitely resolutions i.e., what did I do in 2015 that I no longer want to do in 2016? What do I want to achieve in 2016? Etc., whether as an individual or as an organization.
As we all make our resolutions, I just wanted to pop in here and leave a few tips for the New Year ahead. Continue reading →
When I was growing up, and actually, even till now, the general impression is that women take forever to get ready and I always picture a man pacing in the living room while his wife is in front of the dressing table mirror shuffling between calling out “I’m almost ready, love” and applying her mascara and lipstick.
These days however, I hear and have seen that this is no longer as we knew it to be.
Raise your hands, ladies, if your man is guilty of making you late for events because he’s “getting ready”.
Now, dear men, why does it take you forever to get ready?
Are you the one that has to carefully apply make-up like a master painter at work?
Are you the one who has to go through a pile of clothes to find the outfit just right for this particular event, not the same as the one you wore for the last event (even though it’s a different crowd)?
Are you the one who has to hold her breath and fit into a waist trainer while still managing to look stunning?
Are you the one who has to get the kids ready for the event? and by that I mean, give them a bath, dress them, feed them AND manage all of that while chasing at least one of them around (hi 5 if you can identify with this)!
Are you the one who has to make sure the house looks great before you go out in case an unexpected visitor arrives just as you get back from the event?
Or are you going to use the excuse that you have decided to only get ready after your wife because you know she’s going to take her time and in doing this, you end up being the late one…so technically, it’s her fault?
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, symbol of which is the pink ribbon. I couldn’t let the month go by without lending a voice to the cause that I know is a major issue for women and men around the world.
Even though breast cancer is the most popular form of cancer, there are other forms and there are things that can be done to minimize the associated risks;
First off, you should know how your breasts normally look and feel and report any changes to your doctor right away.
All women should be familiar with the known benefits, limitations, and potential harms linked to breast cancer screening;
Women ages 40 to 44 should have the choice to start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms if they wish to do so.
Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
Women 55 and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or can continue yearly screening.
Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer.
Some women – because of their family history, a genetic tendency, or certain other factors – should be screened with MRIs along with mammograms. Talk with your doctor about your risk for breast cancer and the best screening plan for you.
“The heart is only capable of hate because it used to love….” says Me. 🙂
I really do think that love and hate are two ends of the same spectrum – you can hate someone just as much as you used to love them. Other wise, how do you explain a woman stabbing her husband to death by sticking a knife in his neck during an argument? Or a man cutting his wife to pieces because she was rude? *what are you doing cutting a human like venison?*
Remember “the journey of a thousand miles (read the journey from love to hate) begins with a step”….whatever you do, make sure you’re not taking that first step towards the hate side!
