The sparkle, the glimmer… a message for an estranged family member!!!Ambience
There is always news to be discovered, unearthed and learned secondhand.
The hijacking of a Libyan plane has ended peacefully after armed men who seized control surrendered in Malta… THE NEWS
SuspectBerlin attacker shot dead at Milan…THE NEWS
I still remember the day when I was first interviewed by my “Boss”. He would ask a question and pause… Me being the typical “must-fill-the-silence” kinda person kept blabbering until my brains separated my mind from my tongue. Suddenly, I was split into two – the mind wasn’t able to make sense of the words that my tongue and mouth were forming… and yet my tongue couldn’t take the hint and kept at it.
Fast forward two months… My boss is still the calm self and I still the opposite. Fortunately, I have become great buddies with another hyperactive colleague. She and I always speak about him and how calm he ALWAYS is. She has been hatching plans to shake him off his calm but so far she hasn’t succeeded yet.
Maybe because I am anything but calm, I admire my boss even more.
- I’ve recently had the misfortune of meeting a MORON… He is the epitome of MORON and so the only justice I can do him is by calling him a MORON in all caps.
- Having to share a room at work with this MORON, I must say is one malicious act of Fortune.
I read it somewhere…
- This MORON is alive only because we are not Fortunate enough to strangle to death anyone for the criminal act of MORONism.
- I have this misfortune of sharing my space [at work] with this MORON for this week and the whole week next week….
- My only compensation, this MORON will be gone by the end of this year. And fortunately I will be bidding all things MORON by the end of this year. Yippieeeeeeeeeee!
Why did I have to learn to relax?
People who knew me knew that I panicked easy. They who knew me knew too well that I could panic for insubstantial reasons. I began to relax once I realised that I did panic for silly reasons… Panicking for insubstantial reasons is frowned upon… Panicking for insubstantial reasons often leads you to make more mistakes… Panicking for insubstantial reasons clouds your brains and mind… Panicking for insubstantial reasons blocks you from seeing the bigger picture… Panicking for insubstantial reasons makes you jumpy and pushes you to jump into sillier conclusions… Panicking for insubstantial reasons lets you believe in all insubstantial substances… Panicking for insubstantial reasons gives people around you not believe in your reasons to panic. Hence, I had to learn to relax.
How did I learn to relax? Here’s my tonic for panic:
- Past has passed.
- THIS TOO SHALL PASS.
- Que Sera Sera
If I worried about “what-ifs” of my past, I told myself “Past’s passed.”
When I found worrying over my present predicament, I told myself “THIS TOO SHALL PASS.”
And for all my worries of the future, I chanted Que Sera Sera….
