Have a good life fellow travelers!

Brain Games – Pay ATTENTION

I was watching the show Brain Games the other night. They showed different experiments testing the capacity of human brains. Human brain is truly AMAZING. I am proud to be human and possess this very powerful organ! It is so complex, the way it processes and make us function everyday. Way back in College, I enjoyed the course Bio Psychology, where we also studied about human brains. Although it looked really “eeky” (we studied real brains), it was indeed a wonder.

There is a particular topic in the show that talks about our ATTENTION. It is unbelievable how we actually miss out a lot of things/changes around us. A lot of people in the experiment failed to see changes presented as they were working on a particular task. I find so much meaning in it relating to how we live our lives. “It means your brain is doing what it does best giving your full attention to what’s important and ignore what’s not.” Somehow our body really naturally adapts to each stimulus. I was thinking of problems and challenges in life, things and people who pull you down. It is all about being in control of your mind. Focusing on what is essential. It is possible to train our thoughts more to focus on the positive. This should be a human pursuit. Maybe this will bring about more happiness and satisfaction in our journey.

Have a great week fellow bloggers and readers!

Here is the link to the show:

One Sweet Thought

I was preparing my son’s bath then he was staring at my feet. I haven’t had a chance to do my pedicure. Then he said, “Mommy you cut all our nails but you forget yours. I wish I can cut yours. I want to do you a favor.” I smiled and told him that he just did.

Sibling Love

This afternoon, we visited a petting zoo close to our home. It was our second time there and my kids had so much fun as usual…

It is a typical fun place for families and one beautiful sight just caught my attention.Two baby goats napping under a tree. I thought they are siblings.

It is inspiring.

It is pure.

It shows peace and love.

Beauty can truly be found around us.

Just keep the eyes and the hearts open.

Quick Visit

I have not been writing for a couple of days now. I  have been busy thinking and doing a lot of things and also preparing for my 7 year’s old upcoming birthday celebration.

My mind, heart, soul, and spirit are doing all they can to be on its best condition. Our journey goes on! I am wishing you all the best in your endeavor, may it be on writing or on something else.

I will write soon! And I can not wait to have more time reading your posts!

We Are In A Battlefield

Every morning when I bring my son to school, there is an old man standing by the gate. He is there to keep his granddaughter company while waiting for the bell to ring. I found out that they just moved in here (He was from India) and the little girl was new in school.  We would always smile at each other and engage in some conversations. After dropping of the kids in school, I usually see him walk around the block.

Since last week we were walking to school too. The weather has been nice and I need to exercise! This morning, the old man was walking behind us. His name is Hussein. We talked for a while. For just a couple of minutes, he shed his wisdom.

I do not know what we were talking about. But I remember he suddenly told me, “Do not be scared of anything”. And I paused. I told him his message is just what I needed to hear. It is perfect timing.

I believe in our life, God or the Universe help us along the way. The higher power gives you signs and messages even through other people. He continued,  “Life is a battlefield. You should be a fighter!” I recently asked my doctor to give me a prescription refill of Xanax for anxiety. I did not take it before, bottle was unopened since I was nursing my girl. I thought I would need it now. But after talking to the old man, I told myself, I will be a fighter. I will not need it anymore. I will go through whatever I need to feel. I will deal with it. It is all in the mind.

He is saying always think that you can do things. Positive thinking. Power of the Mind. Training the Mind.  Never be afraid. Even if others hurt you or are jealous, be happy. God (or I think he said Allah) will take care of you and will raise you up.

I asked him his religion since he was talking about Hindu teachings and Allah. He said he is Muslim. And we agreed on one thing. People should stop creating divisions among people. We all know different Gods but to look beyond it all, there is really just One Creator.

He talked about other things I see as very insightful/deep. And these little seeds, I continue to plot in my heart. These good things in life are free. They will grow and help me along my journey. And I intend to give these important seeds to my children as well. I just hope I will be a very good example.

Well, I am glad to have spoken to him.

Have a wonderful day everyone, or good night/sweet dreams to my brothers and sisters on the other side of the globe!

Hopes Of The Troubled Spirit

Numb me

So I do not feel

Blind me

So I do not see

Don’t want to hear

Every word I fear

Weakness

Is what I see…

Strengthen me

So I can stand while I feel

Change me

So I can see the good in it

Help me be more accepting

Of all the things I hear

Help me

So I can be me….
