A different Angle ✿

Hi my lovely readers,

I'm back again with a story I read on another blog recently. This story has a lot to teach us. We always crave for things we don't have and never really appreciate the little things we have close to us. even me, I see new offers in the catalogs and always jump us saying I need that , its on offer now . In reality , these material things  are not what we need in life. Life is much more than that. Love everything and everyone around you and you'll not have tat empty space in you life to fill up with unwanted material things. :)

So now to the story ....

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spend a coupe of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from the trip, the father asked his son, ' How was the trip?'

" It was great Dad,''

" Did you see how poor people live?'' the father asked 

" Oh, yeah." said the son

" So tell me what did you learn from the trip?'' asked the father

The son answered, " I saw that we have one dog and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. 

" We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight."

" We have servants to serve us, but they serve others. We buy food but they grow theirs."

" We have walls around our property to protect us, but they have friends to protect them. "

The boys father was speechless.

Then His son added , " Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."

Life is so inspiring event at the worst of times.

Love ♥ ,

Boots ingredients Avocado & Macadamia Intensive Hair treatment :)

Deep Conditioning !!!

Hello my lovely readers. Today I'm going to review the Boots ingredients Avocado and Macadamia intensive Hair treatment . Lol, that's a long name for a product :P. Usually I prefer a home made deep conditioner or oil treatments to the fancy ones available in the stores. But this time as I passed the aisles in Boots I came across the avocado and macadamia deep conditioner . It looked interesting as I know both avocado and macadamia are super rich for your hair and I've also heard that they increase shine and hydrate etc...

Joy of painting / Drawing ♥

Painting and drawing used to bring me so much joy .Painting  used to be my escape from the busy world. But these days it seems as if I'm too busy to paint or draw. I guess I lost the motivation. I no longer had classmates around to share my passion. 

Back in high school, i kept on painting because I loved it so much. I love the feeling when your really into something and it drives you to go on. After high school, I knew I wanted to take up Fine Arts because there would be so much more for me to learn. But I chickened out because I knew I needed a degree that would make me more employable. I locked up my passion and took up commerce and accounting ( I still have no idea why I chose it). while my 3 years in university barely taught me anything ( since i hated it). I still loved it because I met wonderful people in the university. All the while I would tell my self " One day, I'll start painting again."

Now few years later, I finally took the plunge to go back to it. Because I haven't done any drawings or paintings in a while, I 've decided to take online painting lessons from a few youtubers. There are so many fine art tutorials on youtube, but these are few of my favourites, creativecolors (, The painting and drawing channel ( ) , Web Art Academy (  ), Free oil painting lessons ( ) . You seriously can learn ANYTHING on youtube. 

I'm only free late in the evenings, so going to actual painting classes would be difficult for me. Being able to sit at home, drawing at my own time is what I need. I'm really excited because I'm finally going back to my childhood passion again. 

I hope 2013 hasn't been too bad for you guys. Remember life is short so do all the things that matter to you . Make the most out of it. Take care everybody and You shall see new drawings soon :)

Bringing some CHANGE into Life :)

Change ! 

I've always heard the phrase , ' Change is a good thing'. But is it? Is it always good . Change can also be a fearsome beast when in the wrong hands. 
People always want to change their life, in some way or the other. And they wonder what habits should they start with?This is not a easy question to answer. There are so many changes one can go though, from quitting smoking to reducing debt.And they all seem life changing .
Change doesn't happen over night. You have to work at it. .I sometimes wonder why it takes so long to achieve the final result. 

Maybe its fear of the unknown? you don't know what the outcome of the change or you are not sure of the next step.

I say that you need to live your life differently or you need to start living your dream, but I haven't practiced this completely. 
I think its time we pick one or two habits that we want to change to be able to live a better life.

" Men's natures are alike, It is their habits that separate them". -Confucius

Now if you are ready to change a habit of yours , here are seven little habits that can change you life :)
Only do one at a time. Here they are ( in my order of preference, yours my be different)

1. Thinking positive : I chose this one first because I think this is the number one /most important thing that will help in bringing change. Positive thinking by itself will not lead you to success, but it goes a long way in motivating.

Try to focus on this first as you will have an easier time with the others. Try by recording all the negative thoughts that come by you during the day and soon you'll be able to recognize then and squash them :P

2. Exercise : Sure, Exercise is healthy and all , but how is it life changing? I'm glad you asked.

  • It makes you feel better about your self and thus making you more confident. This will lead to better positive changes.
  • It reinforces the positive thinking habit. You need to think positive in order to sustain exercise.
  • It relieves stress and help you think better. This leads to better mental well being in your life.
  • It helps with creativity. Don't ask me to prove it. try it yourself, all your best ideas will burst out while your exercising :)
3. Single-tasking : Its the opposite of multi-tasking. Why is it life changing?
  • You will be more effective with your task. and you will get more done. Its hard to acheive important things when your constantly switching tasks and distracted by other urgent things.
  • You will be less stressed overall and (in my experience) happier throughout you day.
4. One Goal at a time: Focus on one Goal at a time. While it may seem a little difficult. Focusing one one goal at a time is the most powerful way of achieving your goals.When you try to take on too many goals , you are spreading your focus and energy - the two critical components for achieving a goal.

Some goals are on going ones- such as blogging everyday or exercising everyday. In those cases turn them into habits. Focus on turning the goals into habits and once you have turn them into a habit then focus on the next goal.

5. Scrap out non essentials : Firstly identify the essential- things in your life that are most important to you, that you love the most. Then eliminate everything else. This simplifies things and leaves you with space to focus no more essential things.

This will change your lie because it will help you to simplify, to focus on whats important and to build the life you want.

6. Be Kind : Yes kindness is a habit. And it can be cultivated. Focus on it for a month and you will see profound changes in your life. You will see people react to you differently and treat you better. 

How do you develop this? Make it a goal to do something ind for someone each day. At the beginning of the day , figure out what the kind act would be and do it during the day. Second, every time you interact with someone, try to be more kind, friendly and compassionate. 

7. Daily Routine : Its so simple. But creating a daily routine for yourself can make a big difference in our life. 

How will it change your life? It will help you get a great start to your day and finish your day by preparing for the next day. 

These are just few basics. there are plenty more things you can do to change your life for the better :)
