It Is Not About The Quantity Of Friends, Its About The Quality

In life we will come across so many people in our lives, and some think that the more friends you have the more popular you will be and the more better you will be, and that is wrong. You can have so many friends, you can hundreds of people being your friend and some people will be more concerned about having quantity instead of quality, well, that should not be. I’d rather have a few friends who will be by my side, to back me up, and to support, love and appreciate me for who I am. Everything should be mutual when it comes to friends. It takes two to tango and it takes both to be the backbone that keeps the friendships up. Also, don’t trust people so quickly, don’t give in so easily. Ask yourself a few questions, will they be loyal to you? will they back you up? How will they treat you? Will they use you? Unfortunately in society these days, you need to double triple check before you make friends with people and this day in age, trust has become so rare and there are people of all walks of life. Do you really want to put yourself in a predicament of hanging out with someone who will back stab, betray and use you?

In this life we live in now, we need to analyze people very well before we give our all, before we share our most personal stories and our life’s journey with them. It does take time to get to know someone, and friendships and good friendships take time to build. So you build your trust in accordance to how someone is, their actions, words, kindness, their honesty, their loyalty and the way they are to you and how they treat you. When you are out with friends at a restaurant, take a good look and observe, if they are rude to the waiter or waitress, or if they are rude to any other person, it makes you think and question, will they be like that toward me? Will they burst at me like that someday? Actions do speak a lot louder than words and then words and action play hand in hand with each other.

We must open up our eyes a bit more, be more observant, and not to trust people so easily. Take your time to get to know someone before you give it your all. You will know the quality and the friends you have, by just the way they are, you will know what to do whether to pursue the friendship or not. Disrespectful people who do not know how good they have it and take advantage of ones goodness, good heart, and those who do not care, and those who use you, those who spread rumours and share whatever happens to the world, is not a true friend. Some people do not even know the definition of a friend and that is so unfortunate. Take your time, don’t rush into friendships so quickly because you will be burned if you don’t choose your friends wisely and you can be hurt. I do not want anybody hurt.

My family, friends, fans, readers and all my other supporters, I want the best for everyone, and I am speaking through experience. I’ve been burned so many times from fake people, I’ve been hurt so many times, but all it takes is opening up your eyes, being more assertive, being more aware, being more observant of people’s actions, eye language, facial reactions, body language and more. It is so important to take a look at all of that. It will save the hassle in the long run and it will make you decide if they are the right friends for you and if you should continue it or not. It all depends on a person’s personality and the type of friends to choose, but in the end look out for you. Don’t put everyone in one basket, balance it and don’t give in too quickly.

Just take your time. There is no rush to friendships. You will find the suitable people for you. It will take time and effort, but never ever think friendship will never happen for you. Just be patient and go with the flow.  You would not want to go through havoc and trouble. Just believe in yourself and know that there are types of people for you that are suitable. Just relax and take it easy. I’d rather have only a few friends I can trust, depend on and share stories and things with, rather than having hundreds, that will only be their part time and not full time. So just go with your gut instinct and I wish you all the best.

Some Words of Wisdom For Today

There are great qualities that each and everyone of us have about ourselves. Each one of us are special and have a great talent. Spend time with yourself and discover what they are. No matter what age you are, and no matter when you discover great things about you, it is never too late to shine them and share with the world. Share positivity, be you, lift yourself up higher and don’t ever say negative things about yourself and sell yourself short. Find true friends who will lift you higher in the bad times, whereas when they do, they deserve to always be with you in your good times as well. True and real friends are hard to find and sometimes takes time to discover them, but actions do speak louder than words and it takes 2 to tango. So get yourself going, Keep smiling, surround yourself with positivity and optimism and once you do that everything will come to place. No matter how tough and rough life gets for you get up, stand up and fill your life with smiles and say everything is going to be alright and this too shall pass. So Start now!

 

Being Assertive & Choosing Friends Wisely

You know its said that you shouldn’t make the same mistake twice and sometimes learning the hard way on certain situations is the only way to learn. For some people anyway. Learning how to be assertive, learning how to differentiate between fake and real people takes quite a bit of skill and it takes time to adapt in society and the type of people who are in this world now. Unfortunately sometimes we get caught in the midst between fake and real and sometimes its really hard to detect a phony with real person. Ladies and gentlemen we shouldn’t be so adamant and eager on making friends for the sake of making friends with just anybody. Friendships and relationships take time to build and time to progress. It is finding the right people and finding suitable people is the big thing. Nowadays it takes a long time to trust people, and life isn’t the way it used to be so many years ago where you would keep your doors open, where life wasn’t as difficult and where everyone helped each other and there was something so special between people and now its so rare. Don’t give in too quickly, and don’t assume everyone is your friend, because they aren’t.

Choose your friends wisely, and only have a few friends in your life that will brighten you up, that are honest with you, that don’t take advantage of you and your good heart and soul, who will be there in good times and bad times, and only have friends that you can count with your fingers, because that is all you need. It is not a popularity contest of how many people you know, its the quality of friends you have which should matter the most. Everything else should not matter. As long as you choose and as long as you take on building friendships and relationships, but don’t rush into anything. Not everyone will be on the same page as you and not everyone will give in. So be careful and choose wisely.

I Keep Having Dreams On Being On Talk Shows

For the past few months, I have had these dreams where I have been on so many talk shows such as “The Talk” “Ellen DeGeneres” Rachael Ray” “Marilyn Denis”. Those dreams keep on re-occurring. A lot of the times now, my dreams are coming true. Whenever I dream on something while I am asleep,  It usually comes true within one or two weeks of me having it, but this one not yet, but I know it will happen sooner or later. Now the story of my dreams are about getting on these shows to make a difference in the world, how to keep preventing bullying, among other important things, as well as discussing my blog. All these things came into the picture and I did not want to wake up from my dream. It was amazing and how many peoples hearts I touched in it, and how many people around the globe watched the shows and were really moved by it and how happy and how nice people were and all the feedback I had received on the aftermath of when I went on these shows. It has been several months now, that these dreams keep popping up while I sleep and now its becoming more frequent. I am always dreaming on the same things over and over again. It is pretty nice. I hope one day it comes true soon. I want to do this for everyone, I want to get out there, raise more awareness, I want to do a lot. I do not just want to sit here and and just keep writing, I want to actually go out there and do the best of my ability to make bullying gone and to come up with ways to do so.

Now in my dreams when I go onto “The Talk”, I had spoken to Ayesha Tyler, Sharon Osborne, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood and Julie Chen, and they were all so wonderful to me and I did not want to leave that dream I had, and then a couple of weeks later I remember getting on “Ellen DeGeneres” “Rachael Ray” “Marilyn Denis” and they all were different and so many audiences viewed the shows and it was just so pleasant. I just hope I can one day be noticed by them and make those dreams a reality that I have when I sleep.

All these happen when I sleep, not before I go to bed imagining it. I am hoping to go to at least one of them.

May all your dreams and wishes come true to everyone.

How Blogging Has Taught Me So Much

In My Life blogging has become one of the most important aspects in my life to share with the world and to share with people my experiences, my life, and everything that I stand for. Blogging has taught me so much about how to express myself. I love writing and throwing out my feelings and what I want to say about certain things in life and among everything else. If there is something in this life, I really enjoy, its blogging. I love sharing and reading other peoples blogs, I love learning and doing new things all the time. Its my passion to write and its my passion to get out there and be known and show who I am to the world. I am sure a lot of us bloggers stand for similar things and we all want to be out there. It is important to express yourself and to never be afraid to write what you feel about a certain thing. Blogging is an incredible tool and now everyone searches for so many things and subjects about life and about issues of today’s society and I have noticed that a lot of people search for a lot of it. My stats are an example for that with search terms on important issues in life and people want answers, and hopefully they find what they are looking for. It makes me happy to know that people search for incredible things and find answers to their questions.

Blogging has taught me so much about life, its taught me to never be afraid to express myself, I am so committed into my blogging and It is one of my priorities everyday. I always make time for blogging as it is very important to me. When you blog and when you start up something as fabulous as this, you should never stop and you should never run out of ideas. always ask people around you, always ask and search for topics to write about. Although it could have been discussed a lot of times, but when you put it in your own words and when you put it out there, its something so incredible. Try to write everyday, try to get on out there and discuss many topics. You will how incredible your traffic will become on your blog and the tags are super important and people will locate tags a lot and that will pinpoint you and your blog. I do not rest until I have finished writing and finished with writing for my daily blog. Its something that I have vowed to do, and I will not give up. I have recipes, I have talked about many issues. I am so proud of myself, I feel incredibly amazing and feel so great when I do blog. I want to make as much of a difference in the world as possible and I want to get my messages out to so many people around the world who need it and who need a boost in life. So many people are going through depression, and so many terrible things, I want to be the one to shine light on them because they truly need to hear positive encouragement and they need people around them to comfort them.

with out words and with our blogs, and when people want to search for positivity, optimism and for happy things, its such a powerful tool. Blogging, Social Networking, Media and everything has become so powerful. Blogging especially. Its become so advanced, so many millions of people in the world blog and its such a great thing. I am so committed and so determined to change the world, to make the world a happier place. I want my words and my blogs to empower and to keep people going all the time. All the best to everyone, I wish nothing but the best.

 

Great Night Out With Great Friends

I realized so much tonight by just going out with my friends that I go out with most Friday nights. I realized who my true friends are and who keep my head above water at all times. Tonight was one of the greatest times of my life. It was a nice relaxing and wonderful night. I realize that they truly care a lot for me and they are people I can talk to about anything and just spill my heart out. This week especially has been an emotional roller coaster ride for me and just so much worry about things which I shouldn’t worry, but its in my nature to do so. I am always worried about other people and care so much for people that I sometimes let myself go and only care for other peoples needs. I know I shouldn’t do that, but it is in my nature. Tonight took my mind off of so many things and I just had a peaceful, wonderful time not thinking about anything that bothered me.

I believe that when you find the right people to be with, and the right people to confide in and tell things to, I think that is the most special thing ever in this life. I am so happy to have found people whom get me and whom have my back when things are rough and tough. I have so much to be thankful for and as I looked at my friends tonight and thought in my head, they have got to be the coolest people ever. I am super glad I got to meet them. If it wasn’t for me going to Armenian events, bible studies, and being in the Armenian community. I would have never met these people and I would have never had this close bond with them. I am super happy that they are part of my life and I am ever so grateful for having people like them in my life that make me laugh and where I can be myself with. If I cannot be myself with people, I cannot be they’re friends and I cannot function properly, but with the people I was with tonight, I feel so comfortable and happy.

I wish everyone well and I wish everyone will find the right people to be with and to spend time with. I think it is very important to be with the right crowd and to understand each other and doing fun things together and no destroying things and acting out. As some groups destruct, vandalize others property and everything. It is super important to get into the right crowd. You wouldn’t want to end up on the news or anything would you? Always choose your friends wisely.

Service Centres & Truck Stops on the Highways

I must admit stopping at service centres and truck stops have got to be my favourite places to stop when on the road Going to Montreal and coming back on the Highway 401 East and West bounds. There have been many experiences and I must say each one is so much fun. Sometimes I would stay for 10-15 Minutes to fill up gas and go get something to munch on from the Market, I’d stop in for half an hour, sometimes an hour if I am in no hurry. I’d often start making friends here and there and start up conversations with ordinary people. Its fun meeting people at service centres.

I don’t know if I have a map or GPS Written on my forehead but I would just be standing there, minding my own business when people come up to me and ask me and tell me Ma’am, how many minutes or hours left until we get to Montreal? It was this really nice family that came up to me. I said Oh I am headed that way as well. So from the OnRoute Service centre in Morrisburg at exit 758, I told them its about another Hour and a half, and they asked me what there is to Do in Montreal, and I explained to them what the hot-spots and great places to see there. Its like they know me from long ago, they said thank you so much for your help, I said no problem. I told them after 32 times to Montreal in Just this year excluding all the other years I have been to Montreal, I know Montreal inside and out. They said wow thats so awesome! After almost 30 minutes I had spent with them, They ended up giving me $20.00 because I helped them out a lot and said go and buy yourself snacks or whatever you want, I said “I can’t take your money!” They said no we insist, its not everyday we meet someone who actually cares to give directions and information to a place were going to go explore for the first time. So we gave each other our contact information and we have been friends ever since. They are just 15 minutes from me. Its so awesome.  then they had to get back on the road and continue their travel journey to Montreal.

At times I would order food from Burger King, A&W, or get myself a french Vanilla from Tim Hortons, or get a few snacks from the Market and by surprise a few of the workers who I recognize all the time, they surprisingly remember me and a few times they said Hey its you again! I said yes, then they said wow you sure do make lots of trips on this highway, I said i sure do. I know all the exits, cities, towns by heart and I am like a personal tourguide to people who stop at service centres and I dont know what it is, but they always seem to ask me, The worker said, I guess people sense on who knows more than the other person at service centres and they said of course they would ask you of a friendly and lovely face like yours. I would just be like, Thank you! :)

Now here is something funny that happened, I know I had said this about the Cops I had spoke about in several blogs ago, but do not want to repeat that in my OPP Post, but another funny thing had happened. This time we stopped in Brockville, Ontario going toward Montreal and there was a huge convention or something going on with cops from parts of Ontario, so here is me always finding ways to talk to Officers, and they had all come to Tim Hortons, so I said to this officer, Now this Tim Hortons is the safest one with all of these fine and incredible officers, The officer from Brockville started to laugh, He said thats the first time I have heard that one lol. He said thanks thanks, Then I told him and his officer partner, that I am on my way to Montreal and they said awesome have fun, and then they said DONT SPEED Or we’ll come after you, I go you have no problems with me because I dont speed. LOL They said good better not ahahaha. it was good ol fun, then I left for the road.

Now a few times I have stopped at truck stops like 5th Wheel, Flying J, Husky on the 401. I would see these big huge trucks and I would actually go stand right beside them. they are so huge, that you dont really realize it from your car driving on the highway all the time unless you stand right beside it. Its a huge beast! I have made many trucker friends. I am telling you, my adventures at these service stops are so fun! I sometimes dont keep track of time only the times i am not in a hurry of course as I said. There are these monthly trucker magazines on the rack and I would always go and get a copy of that and read about the transport trucking industry, about new truck lines, new laws and everything else. Its an awesome truck mag. I like those magazines, pamphlets, brochures about the areas, what to do, see. I keep them all and i document them.

A few of my friends told me, why don’t you work in a Highway Transport Safety Office? Tourism of Montreal office? Or Highway safety? Its awesome. I told them no, but recently, I found my real passion and it is to write, but giving people directions and explaining about the cities towns stretching across the 401 east and stuff is something i like to do on the side. I am not sure when I will go to Montreal again or visit these service centres, but I hope its soon. I just have a blast everytime and I do not think its long at all. 4 and a half hours and I am there. Gotta love it!

The Good Quality Family Oriented TV Show’s Of the Past

Nowdays its very hard to find good quality shows that are tasteful and G Rated. Most shows that we see on TV now are mature adult content and so much content that makes you uncomfortable when children are around to watch it. I remember when I was a kid, we used to have family TV Time and shows like Family Matters, Full House, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Family Ties, Growing Pains, Home Improvement, and all those good quality shows made TV a good thing and parents weren’t afraid of their children watching them because they used to bring out good points in how life is and each show teaches people a lesson on what to do right.

All these shows now, make you wonder why they are put there? Why Reality shows are getting all the popularity? Why people spend so much time and why teenagers get influenced on these pointless shows that I do not think its good at all. It teaches teenagers to get on the wrong paths in life and I do not find it to be so tasteful. I find it to be quite strange. Now, I hardly ever watch TV unless its The Big Bang Theory,  now that show is great and makes me laugh, catching up on world news, so on and so forth. but where do we draw the line? I only watch maybe an hour of TV a day IF THAT.

Those CSI Shows, and shows about law enforcement and so on and so forth are great and it teaches alot about Law and Life. Now those shows are Great and educational to us. How its Made, Discovery, Cooking/Baking shows, Talk Shows are all incredible and greats to Television. I think before shows get put on TV, these TV Stations, People who produce content should overlook it and really think about what the produce and broadcast. Its important.

People want good quality shows with good, positive content, with family values and good lessons in life to make people get to the right path. especially the younger people and teenagers. They get influenced by the stuff they see the most so they end up doing it in their lives and which they get themselves into trouble, thinking that TV People are doing it, so we should too. It is wrong and those things need to stop.
