She Is A Beauty is an open-ended piece of literature that will continuously journal an anonymous woman of beauty.
The first half of 2015 has gone by. Time flies.
I’ve gotten into this habit of putting my gadgets away at the end of the day, mostly inspired by writing these couple of articles: 6 Reasons To Motivate A Time-Out From Our Mobile Devices (Part 1) and 4 Practical Steps to Take Control Of The Time We Spend On Our Mobile Devices (Part 2). Can’t just talk the talk and not walk the walk can I?
Dwelling in the silence of the night, taking in the totality of the day in a regrouping process sort of way, gives me a clear orientation of each day gone by and how it fits into the bigger picture of a week, a month and eventually a year. Legs up against the wall, I reflect on how my days are progressing, am I where I want to be or taking the necessary steps towards. Just doing this little exercise each day, time still flies, but now slower, at a more conscious and fulfilling level.
It has been a busy and exciting period for both of us and have been away from writing a little while but still connecting with our lovely readers. We’ll be back on track with more!
Are you one of those that needs music, or simply some noise, while working or studying? Well I sure am one of them who writes better with some music or noise at the background. Something not too loud or overpowering, but loud enough to distract me just a little bit. Not that I am not able to write in silence or I dislike quietness, but I tend to get more inspired and somehow ideas flow readily with that morsel of distraction.
And if you enjoy writing or reading in a cafe like myself, yet sometimes too lazy to make the trip, you can head over to Coffitivity.com for your fix of coffee shop chatters and noise, short of that coffee roast smell – I am sure that can be easily solved with a cup of instant coffee beside you. Yea, they are worlds apart, but it is the next best thing you can get without leaving the cosiness of your room.
Chanced upon Coffitivity some time ago, the team behind it sure put in a great deal of effort into building the site and of course, the sounds. If you are not into coffee shop chatters, there are other sounds for you to choose. So go check out Coffitivity.com out if you have not already.
I need to disclaim that I am in no way related to Coffitivity, simply sharing a good site. That also means I receive no sponsorship or advertising from them, but I would love to, if possible 🙂
Marriage was designed to be permanent. No one walks down the aisle with the goal of till seven years do us part. Unfortunately our mindset these days is not aligned with permanence but favours instant gratification and the pursuit of (fleeting) happiness, from one source to the next. As a result, many homes are built on sandy soil – vulnerable to changing (but forseeable) weathers and easily collapsible. We see this instability reflected in the increasing divorce rates all around the world and it just prompts one to make an attempt in figuring out what is going on.
You have wandered into the space which we have set up to share the personal thoughts of Mr. E and Ms. E.
Two months into this project, we are humbled to have reached out to hundreds of people from all over the world, and we hope that our articles have made a positive difference in these lives and many more to come.
We want to use this avenue to share more of our life journey, our inspiration behind our articles, how we apply them in our lives and even the challenges we face.
You are invited to join us here and perhaps even drop us a message once in awhile! We love hearing from and connecting with our readers!
These three walls are stopping you from cultivating a Quality Relationship. Break them down now!
The love relationship is alike a road trip – a long journey with many turns and pit stops. In this journey you and your partner are bound to encounter a few (or many) bumps. The occasional quarrels are unavoidable. Seldom do we hear of couples whose journey is constantly smooth-riding without a tad of a knock. Yet it is often these ups and downs – falling and picking each other up – that strengthen the relationship and propels it to greater intimacy. However, when there are walls set up along this journey, their progress will be hindered. The wrecks and crashes that are bound to be suffered will inflict damages that can be as severe as to destroy the relationship.
1) Wear the clothes, or it will wear you
When you wear well-fitted clothes and carry it well with confidence, you are your own style. Conversely, when you do not appear comfortable because of the factors addressed below and get overwhelmed by your clothes, then your clothes could be wearing you.
Beyond a shadow of doubt, mobile devices are here to stay and further develop in its engagement of man. Ironically, what was designed to increase convenience made our lives much more complex than it already was. In order to be in control of this revolution – instead of being controlled by it – here are some easily implementable actions you can consider adopting:
The anxiety faced in the absence of one’s mobile phone is known as ‘nomophobia’. Unlike alektorophobia, ephebiphobia, soceraphobia, chromophobia… and the woe-to-mankind list goes on, nomophobia has discreetly embedded and burrowed deep its tentacles into our psychology without so much of a conscious concession from us. Because our reliance on these devices to facilitate our everyday living is, for the general population, almost second to none, inevitably our psychology has evolved to acclimatised to these digital aids.
What follows does not apply only to the mummies and grannies since aging escapes no one regardless at which decade of our life we are in.
How quickly those years add up on us. While we scramble with minimising the effects of the passage of time, slathering thousands of dollars on our body to protect, conceal and preserve, all these time the pages of magazines, billboards, advertisements etc, portrays a demographic of women that never age – even photoshopped to perfection.
So you have found the love of your life and every other person fades into the background when you are next to each other- maybe, at least in the stage of euphoria.
Thankfully, the world continues revolving outside of our couple-dom and this world is as relevant to us as it has been since we first learnt our ABCs. With an updated status ‘(your name) is now in a relationship / engaged / married’, how do we remain relatable especially to the singles in our social circles? Here are four behaviours to avoid:
