El Perfeccionismo y la Felicidad


perfeccionismo 6

El perfeccionismo puede causarnos inseguridad, porque ponemos expectativas muy altas. Si no las conseguimos buscaremos los errores y nos sentiremos culpables, bajará la autoestima y estaremos fuertemente debilitados y vulnerables, será fácil caer en el victimismo y cuando nos sintamos victimas culparemos a los demás.

A Wife’s Poem……..

Boundless Blessings by Kamal

1486047139524599900.jpgThis is a poem written by a newly wedded wife who tries her utmost to please her husband with the best of things but he always finds some fault in her and appreciates his mother in what she did for him.  Read her words:

He did not like the curry

And he did not like my cake

He said my biscuits were too hard

Not like his mother used to make.


I did not prepare the coffee right

He did not like the stew I made

I did not mend his socks

The way his mother used to do.


I pondered for an answer and prayed

I was looking for a clue

Isn’t there anything I could do

To match his mother’s shoe?


Then I smiled as I saw light

One thing I could definitely do

I turned around

And slapped him tight

Like his mother always…

He Knows……………

Boundless Blessings by Kamal

images.jpgHe Knows!

I am just a masterpiece in the making

From the one who has created me

Who knows what he is doing!

Learning the art to master peace.

I simply choose to feel joyous now

Fear has flown away swiftly

All has worked out fantastically

And I believe that they will

As I am made from none other than Him

Who knows what he is doing!

And to one-day wake up

Nice and fresh, basking with delight

Knowing that He is on my side

Watching me with his big smile

Whispering in my ears

‘Do not worry, Be Happy’

And that is more than enough

For I surely know what he is upto

And what he is doing………………..

Terror in the Tower

Darlene Foster's Blog

I am submitting this story to Stevie Turner´s Short Story Competition  You may want to submit one as well.

This story was inspired by a visit to Clifford´s Tower in York.

Terror in the Tower
Darlene Foster

The tower ruin overlooks the city from high on a grassy mound. Angela pulls her sweater tighter around her as she glances up. She experiences the same chill every time she walks past the site.
When she was seven, her mother took her up to the old stone keep. From a small window, she saw a girl looking out at her through iron bars. Fire blazed behind the child. It had frightened her so.
“Mommy, we need to help that little girl,” exclaimed Angela.
Her mother took her hand and said, “There are no children in there. It must be a trick of the sun reflecting off the water.”
The sad, terrified…

Magna Carta and Russian nerve …… agents!

Tales From Mindful Travels

The whole world now sees the despicable and dangerous regime run by Putin and the lengths to which they will go to kill any of their own nationals who criticises the Putin regime. The use of the Novichok poison in Salisbury has not only left two Russians in intensive care, as well as a British policeman, but has also resulted in 138 British citizens being monitored having been in close proximity to the discovery at the time.


The irony of it?

It is with a sense of great irony that this took place in Salisbury, an ancient city in Wiltshire we often visit, and only a few miles away from Stonehenge one of the worlds most iconic monuments from prehistoric times. The unnoticed irony is that Salisbury Cathedral houses the Magna Carta, the ancient document underpinning the unwritten constitution of this country, the inspiration for American independence and their constitution!

When Making A Car Was Illegal

Pacific Paratrooper

The last Packard, 1942 The last Packard, 1942

This was originally published as a Guest Post for Judy Hardy at Greatest Generation Lessons.

After Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt ordered all car manufacturers to cease the production of private automobiles and convert the factories to produce military vehicles, weaponry, airplane engines, parts, etc. But, this would not put an end to man’s love affair with the automobile. A car manual became priceless to a private owner and a truck manual was an absolute necessity for a farmer or businessman. With the rationing of gasoline in the U.S., the “National Victory Speed” was 35 mph and driving clubs were encouraged. (Our modern day car-pools).

The news spread around the world. The news spread around the world.

Automobiles were produced in massive quantities before the Great Depression and this brought the price down considerably. Then, the stock market crashed and many people were unable to afford the fuel for the cars they already…

Season of Surprise


‘Tis the season to be merry?

Maybe. Maybe not.

But ‘tis certainly looking like the season to be surprised.

Once again.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has set the ball rolling by predicting that large parts of the country will reel under temperatures higher than normal and that the seasonal average temperature is set to be higher than normal by over 1 degree Celsius.

We are surprised.

After years of rapid development, with millions of fossil fuel burning cars added to the roads, agricultural and forest lands being consumed to build wider and wider roads in an effort to get those cars moving and so that the common man feels like he is living anywhere but in India, building shiny new energy-guzzling highrises, putting many water bodies out of the misery of their daily struggle for survival, transporting food and water from greater and greater distances, we are surprised.

International Day of Happiness


A day recognized for celebrating happiness! This is somewhat new and weird for me, and I accept that this year only I got to know about this day. And felt little weird because happiness is not something that has to be celebrated, happiness is a state of mind, a fundamental right and a practice that should be an inevitable part of our life. And in my defense, my mind answered that, if there’s a day for celebrating love or womanhood, then why not happiness also.

Yes, I admit, all these fundamental feelings are gradually being lost in this world every day and that’s why these days make us remember the importance!

I won’t say that I am a perfect person, I also have my issues and somehow I also miss the simplicity of being just “happy”. Yet at the end of the day, I always try to make myself remember…

The Man Who Knew Everything: Some lesser-known facts about Stephen Hawking

Weekend Trivia

Academic icon and renowned physicist Stephen Hawking left his earthly abode for the stars on March 14, 2018. The scientist is world renowned for his significant contributions to Cosmology, the study of the origin and development of Universe. Not only did this genius studied and brought about new theories in the fields of Cosmology, which eventually changed the world, he is also well known to make complex physical concepts accessible to the wider community with his best selling book ‘A Brief History of Time‘.
