Easier Said Than Done

Is it only me who feels like it is so simple and easy to say things; but then the implementation of what is said is difficult sometimes or a bit challenging to do?

Don’t know about you, but I have heard from a lot of people that: it is easy to say than do! Do we know why? That is how I feel sometimes. Don’t judge me for what I am saying, but as humans we struggle a lot in this area. We quick in our lips and slow in action.

This I gather is what society has done to us. Society has taught us to learn and unlearn things. We have learned so much that is not factual and that is unreal. I say this because when the real meets the facts; the reaction is different. I know it depends, but life is always and has always been like this. You never get to know the real until you meet the facts.

Why I say this is because growing up we are taught to do things in a certain way, sometimes we are taught not supported by any facts or realities. We live believing that that is the only way. Yes, this we grow as the only truth we know until we hit rock bottom – I mean when

Yes, this we grow as the only truth we know until we hit rock bottom – I mean when we experience true life and then only we can understand.

How we were taught sometimes – there was no room to review or give opinion. Am I right? Then come this stage where what you learned is challenged because now you know or rather you have acquired more knowledge. You now know better. That on its own makes you not to accept everything, but to analyze things and make decisions based on facts and reality. Most of the times these things become contrary to what we have learned. This is when now the process of unlearning kicks in; and we regard ourselves as being more matured

We respond differently to what socially was not acceptable but because our level of maturity have changed, we unlearn to learn what we believe is socially sane and make sense than socially acceptable

I am definitely learning to unlearn what I used to believe in; I know I am learning a lot of what my journey is teaching me right now

We learn everyday and we never cease to grow

We discover new things everyday and we never stop to develop

We experience new things everyday and we do not stop to share our stories

Never ever tell yourself that you understand life

Life is never meant to be understood
Life is is meant to be lived

Never ever think life is about living and dying

Life is an experience of many things unsaid, unrecorded, many things lived for, written, shared, hidden, dark, felt….
Life is all things put in one basket

Never ever stop to live

Life is but a journey that we all walk through

A realist, always fond of things that are real and matters. The lover of writing and a staunch reader, growing up with a burning passion of writing. I always have a pen a pad with me, life is a story that I never want to miss writing about. It always fascinates me when we are categorized as introverts and extroverts because that on its own is the reason behind every personality. I grew up being referred to as an “introvert” and I later understood the personality behind it: quite, reserved, peaceful, creative mind & thinking; antisocial and very analytical. Being in that space I always knew that as a writer or reader you cannot do that in a noisy or busy place; you need a quite and peaceful environment. It is interesting how I found myself being able to fit all that I love doing in this space that I find myself loving because I fit so perfectly (besides the stereotypes, it is the truth): they all fit, my list is endless but what I know for sure is that “I am born an artist” I am married to my loving and supportive husband for 23 years, Collen and we are blessed with four children; three adult boys; all grown ups and the youngest teen daughter who is still with us and in high school. I am University graduate with a B.A degree in Social Science (majored in Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology), graduated with MBA in Sports in 2011. Worked for more 13 years until 2009 when we began our diplomatic life as a family. What I am grateful for is that there is always a bigger plan and things happen for a reason. Although mostly often, we do not have answers; all that matters is that we share those experiences and life lessons to inspire and lift others up. This is my passion and I am thrilled by challenges; good or bad and my mind likes solving mysteries that I believe are real; sometimes hidden and not spoken about. My favorite authors Danielle Steel and Agatha Christie always challenges my thinking and approach in life. I began reading their books from 14 years and I am still their fan reader. They share their stories in writing and as someone who likes sharing, I quickly connected with them My life is all about the real world: family, marriage, relationships, health, children, parenting, spirituality, cooking, leisure, travel, reading, writing, engaging, connecting, encouraging......I love sharing Sharing is golden
