Anger

Oh! My God! damn it! Have been struggling  all day and I feel desperate.

Oh! Not again, and down crashes the beautiful vase.

It’s awful, I am again late today, why couldn’t you wake me early. I am going, you drop the kids and eat the breakfast for yourself.

Well, these are some of the instances which we come across in our daily life. Anger, is  ruling the situation but the reasons are varied. At times, it eases away easily but sometimes the situation goes beyond control and it is the near and dear ones, who have to face the consequence or at times, the person itself.

Anger, is  a situation where we are not happy over the situation and thus show it upon someone else. It does more harm than good to a person. He unnecessarily, overreacts or gets tensed. Well, the situation may be a intense one but of what use can it be? Just imagine, had the person calmly reacted, he would be sane to take a better solution.

Thus, when in anger try to control it. Count upto ten or move further. If that does not ease, start counting in the reverse order. One does feel better. Then, he will be able to think properly.

It is always said that anger destroys many things including relations. Once broken, they are hard to be mended. Hence, try to curb your anger which try to rules.

Beauty lies in the beholder

February 14 marks the Valentines Day. A day solely dedicated to the lovely couple, a custom which has been more in vogue in the recent times. This blog has nothing much related to the valentines day, but I want to tell that the bond which holds two people together is a very strong one. 

A person may not be good looking in the eyes of the world, but that person is the most beautiful or handsome for his lover. This is the truth,which each one of us has to expect. Hence, it is not good to comment on someone’s wife as not pretty or something like that. Each person has their own looks and it is the gift of The Lord. 

Moreover, as time moves on, the looks of the person hardly matters. It is the heart and the character of the person that counts most. Here,  I think the phrase, beauty is skin deep,holds true. A person is more known by his nature and character and it’s the personality of the person which makes him stand out in the crowd.

PARENTING

Parenting is a big job for both the father and mother these days. With most mothers, going out to work it becomes very demanding and difficult to adhere to the needs of the children. Thus, it is sad but true that one needs to be totally aware of their responsiblities of being a parent. From the day a child is born, a mother needs to take care of him lovingly by keeping awake to the odd hours till the day they see him settled in life.

A little child brings immense joy in the family. It is the one which binds the couple more stronger than ever. Each milestone of the child is noted by the parents with excitement.The first word is pronounced and this spreads like a wildfire in the neighbourhood. Likewise, the first step and many others are all somethings to  be excited by these parents.

Along with this are the changing sleep patterns which take place every month. A child is awake during odd hours and the mother has to spend her time with this dear one.Each stage, brings new changes in the children  Soon they will find that the expenses seem to be many. Along with the daily needs, and the vaccinations, they  need to save for the future of the child. Thus, parenting is no small a job. It needs your love, time and money.

Children give meaning and a joy to complete the relation called as family. It is worth experiencing but remember to give your fullest to it.

Do you eat breakfast?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The body has starved for twelve long hours and it is important you eat something healthy. Start your day with a good break fast. This will help you to keep going. Moreover, it gives the required energy to keep you going with vigour and vitality.

Many people tend to forgo this important meal of the day. They are either to busy to eat or don’t want to eat. They think that lunch is the best option. But,one needs to remember that breakfast like a king, lunch like a common man and dine like a pauper,goes the quote. One usually has his dinner at 8.30 p.m in the night and by morning 9.30, enough of work is done after waking at 6.00 a.m in the next morning and it will be almost thirteen hours from the last meal. 

just think over the next time if you want to skip your healthy breakfast.
