My Cat, Otong

I still remember the first day I had met him, it was my wedding day. Those days I could not stand the thought of living under the same room with a cat, or any pet for that matter. But within a week, he won my heart. His mischievous eyes that also reflected the innocence of a kitten and his playful attitude warmed my heart towards him and made me find a new companion in him.

I named him Otong. I never knew before that the presence of a tiny animal could affect my life to such an extent. Otong had become the baby of our house. He got the most attention from everyone. His charm worked on people in such a delightful way. I am not sure whether those who have never owned a pet would be able to relate to my emotions but I can guarantee that anyone who has ever loved and cared for an animal in this manner would be able to understand exactly what I am talking about. Expert report that there are specific unique ways that our cats saying ‘I love You’. Continue reading

An Inspiration On The Road

Recently, during the painful hours of waiting in traffic, I witnessed a simple act of kindness that had such a profound impact on me. It brought me to tears. It was a bright morning. I was observing a municipality cleaner, who was doing his morning chores. Tears of sweat glistened on his face, nevertheless he continued working.

I had finished sympathizing with him and got distracted by the green light of the signal just when the guy in the car in front of me pulled his window down, called the cleaner and gave him some cash, probably as a token of appreciation. The middle-aged man nodded his head and pocketed the cash happily and thanked the guy in the car. I was so moved to see the gesture. Continue reading

I absolutely love social medi but I absolutely despise the feeling it gives me every once in a while. I don’t know about you but every once in a while, I find myself scrolling down my timelines and feeing bouts of insecurity brush accross my heart.

It’s like these miniature waves of “envy” come over me as my heart begins to covet what others have in comparison to what I perceive to lack. “Wow, they are on another vacation in Europe … must be nice.” … “Oh , they are on another shopping spree … must be real nice.”

Ever been there and done that? Ever felt completely ridiculous for doing it? If so, you are not alone and CONGRATULATIONS…YOU ARE OFFICIALLY HUMAN! Though the enemy would love for you to feel as though you’re the only one who experiences these feelings, the truth is that you’re not alone. Continue reading

Hello sweeties!

Anybody missed me?hehe

How’s life treating you lately? I hope you had fantastic day yeah? I’m so happy with getting back. Sorry for my sporadic blogging habits. I wrote this post while I didn’t feel much better, your comments helped to buoy my spirits a bit. I woke up on Wednesday morning in a pretty dark mood.

Tonight, when I’ve been out socializing for a while, I sometimes like to go home and be by myself because I am a human being who occasionally enjoys my privacy.  I think this is an alarm for me to spend a little time to separate from the outside world, FYI, I currently very enjoyed spending my spare time ALONE. I can read books or anything else, because I am not a stultifying moron. It’s not a big deal.

Let me tell you, I am pretty sure I fall into the introvert extrovert person.  Yes I am a combination of both. I am just a human being with largely the same response to social situations as everyone else. We are such unique creatures, hey?:)  Continue reading
