Living in Fear of Travel To See The World

In recent news when we have heard about a cruise ship encountering choppy waters of a Norway ship, and when we heard about the plane crashes involving Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft, and mishaps happening on cruise ships and airlines, I think that when these things get heard on the news, it deters some people away from traveling the world. I do not blame them, but why live in fear?

Yes, although the thought of these things can be scary and you can easily grow fear, but when you live in fear and hear all the media and news about things like this, you won’t go anywhere, you won’t explore a world waiting for you to explore in all kinds of transportation.

I am someone who has experienced a lot of travel in my life since I was a child. I have not stopped traveling since then and until this present time. I have heard all kinds of things, but that does not deter me from one of the things in my life that brings me joy is the gift of travel. It truly is an incredible feeling when you venture out of your daily life and just go and explore.

When you live in fear with anything in life, you will not want to do anything and you will be stuck in just one place, and seeing the same scenery and being in the same areas over and over again can get boring. Travel while you can, enjoy your life, and don’t feel that you need to be afraid to try new things.

A lot of people have bad feelings about cruises, some have never even been on a cruise ship and do not even want to attempt to try it out. I think that is a bit much. I truly think that because of the Titanic and a few mishaps here and there, people are afraid to go on ships. I tell you this. Titanic was in 1912. Now, we are in 2019. A lot has changed in terms of technology, better work and better material for ships, and they are built so huge now, you won’t even feel barely feel the ship moving. It is such a great experience. You need to try it and put your fears away.

Some people do not even want to fly on an aircraft either. It is such a great experience as well when you begin taking off and when landing. It is such a fantastic way to explore the skies and below you when there are no clouds in the sky and when it isn’t dark. You will see different cities and towns, shapes, patterns, different patches of land and sea, amongst a lot of nature and within hours or an hour or so, you will be in another place in the world within a day or so. You will see how life dynamics differ from each place in the world.

The problem with today’s society is that, when media has a role with everything we hear and they make a story so big that they make you live in fear, and it makes you feel like you should not try new things. Life is beautiful and meant to explore.

Unfortunately with what has happened is so terrible with the cruise ship mishaps, the aircraft problems. My thoughts and prayers go out to families and friends of those who were lost in the plane crashes and those injured as well. It is absolutely heartbreaking to have your life changed forever.

Making Someone’s Day Better

If I can make a difference in someone’s life in a positive, happy and great way every day, then my day is not wasted. I always strive to do my best in inspiring people, giving back to society, being a listening ear, taking extra steps to make someone smile is something I love to see.

I write from my heart and soul, I work so hard for my craft and utilize the talent that God gave me. He gave me this gift and I use it every passing day. I’m blessed that I can have this ability to write and to be helpful in a person’s life.

With all the hate, bad news and negativity going on in the world, I would like to add some colour, goodness, and beauty of life back into people’s lives. Blessings to you all.

With love, Talin Orfali Ghazarian

Humans Destroying Other Humans

Today’s society has become a huge blunder. Nowadays some human’s are finding ways to harm and be bad examples to other people whether it is sharing a terrible trend on social media, creating videos that cause harm, showing people terrible videos to do self-harm, being bad influences on children, teenagers, and adults too.
 What a world we live in now that when we think we have seen everything, something else comes up that is unthinkable. Humans are ultimately destroying other humans. Nowadays, people are always out to get others from stealing people’s stuff, money fraud, damaging property, disrespecting each other, criminal activity, frauding others in other ways, staging car accidents, faking, tricking and doing other unspeakable things and also killing with stabbings, shootings. You name it.
   Now, people are out for themselves and it is so rare to find good people these days without any strings attached or without payback. Selfish and jealous behaviour causes people to do terrible things to others without thinking.
  Prominent figures of society need to really step up and give us great influence and inspire the world and famous people and ordinary people like us have a voice, and we need to use it, and we need to put our foot down and begin to think seriously of what we are doing to this world of humanity.
    When and how do we draw the line? It is absolutely ridiculous in this world we are in now. It is pretty sad on how humans want to destroy other humans. Where is the love? where is the kindness? Social media is a very prime example as too ridiculous and terrible trends come to play. The internet poison is social media and those who are vulnerable and fall for things quite easily get poisoned with videos, posts and pictures that is pure nonsense.
I think that this world needs a huge makeover. The more bad influences that are given out, the worse humans are getting when it comes to all that. There are reality shows on 16 and pregnant or shows that depict a lot of bad influences. I’d like to see success stories of inspiration, goodness, sharing good news, love, respect, and things that need to be seen, lessons to be taught, and quality shows where morals are taught.
Parents really need to be more alert when it comes to their children viewing videos, photos, and looking stuff up on the internet. You really need to be vigilant and spend more time looking closely to what your child does on the internet and limiting them from screen time. They really need to be taught the right and wrong and what they need to stay away from. Don’t let them get into the latest bad influence trends, and better yet, kids should not be on those screens. They need to find other ways to occupy their time. They are so young to be on social media and watch videos.
If you really want your child to be on a screen, buy DVD’s, record good videos for kids and let them watch it on television. Nowadays with that momo telling people to turn the stove on, to slit wrists, and do self-harm and teaching kids wrong things to do in their lives is very concerning and alarming.
These things even apply to teenagers and adults. There is no age when it comes to online safety and things that cause harm. Do not listen and try things you see online that can be really terrible. Ultimately, everything happening now has something to do with destroying and doing harm.
Suicide rates, mental illness, emotionally disturbed, abused physically and mentally and people who are losing their will has something to do with how they were raised, the influences of others, the things they may have seen in life, how they were treated, being bullied, hurt, made fun of, being lied to, having trust issues. Everything goes hand in hand with harm, with terrible things humans do to other humans.
It needs to stop and it needs to stop now. Go and be kind to other humans, spread positive and goodness in the world, start good trends, invent things that can benefit others, love each other, be each others guardian, protect each other,  create videos that can benefit society, make kindness go viral because this world is in dire need of it. We all need it in our lives.
It is a serious matter that needs to be dealt with. More strict punishments need to take place, people need to learn lessons that if you do something wrong, you must pay for your mistakes and hopefully learn from it. Life is fragile.
I don’t understand why people need to hurt others. Life is way too short to inflict damage to others. Live your own life, enjoy the world of humanity, help each other. It is such a beautiful thing that people are missing out on. People miss out on a lot because of stupidity and what they do. It really does not take much to be kind, to say thank you, to be happy.
Once we begin to do good and happy things, once we get out of the poison that is dealt with us, you will see the world and peoples dynamics changing, lifestyles, and the way of life can and will get better. Trust in me. Humans destroying humans is not the answer to life.
Be who you are and spread good cheer. The world definitely needs it desperately.

No Sympathy for Lateness – Only A Few Exceptions only

In life, whether we’re invited to a restaurant gathering, parties, get-togethers, catching a flight out, even for school, work, a job interview, or anything that it could be, even a date, meeting up for coffee, punctuality and being early is very important. I know sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances it happens where people are late or get caught up on something, the best thing to do is let others know who you will be meeting that you are running late. It is common courtesy and respectful. Your time is as valuable as the other peoples time. So it goes both ways.

Tips and Advice on how to manage time, to be early and punctual.

— Say you get invited to a restaurant for dinner at 7:30 and reservations have been made and you are there at 7 7:15, which is good to be early to respect other peoples time, then you see other arriving at 7:30 right on the dot, then you see late people arriving an hour later at 8:30. People are munching on Appetizers already because they waited long enough. — Respecting time is important and especially respecting other people in the process.

— Say you go to the airport and you arrive there at 3pm and your flight is at 6:30pm, which is great to be there 3 and a half hours before, but some people decide to show up at 4:30 or 5pm and flight is at 6:30, they think that they can be allowed boarding and they think that their luggage will make it to the plane. I do not think so. Respect the time given to be at the airport prior to departure and make it to your plane on time so others do not have to wait for that one or two people who decide to play around and not get to the gate on time.

— Never leave things to the last minute to get ready, to shower, to allow time to get ready after the shower. do it in advance and start getting ready an hour or two before a party and also take into factor how long it will take to get to the venue from your place and get ready accordingly. You do not want to be one of those people who arrive at a party at 10 at night when a party starts at 7. No matter what it is, its important to value time, manage time well and do important things first then allocate enough time to do what is necessary. Be courteous no matter what it is.

— Job interviews, going to school and work on time is very important. Especially when you are going for a job interview. Be there about half an hour before or an hour before. get yourself prepared, and gather your thoughts. Always look at the time and get to places on time. It is very crucial to be punctual in everything in life.

— When you are invited to someone’s place at say 4pm on a Saturday and agree to go, be there right at 4pm or about 10 minutes before. Every minute counts and they count on you to be on time. It is not nice to not show up at someone’s house at 6pm, without letting them know you will be late or something is going on that you cannot make it right at 4.

— A simple I cannot be there on time, or I have some things to take care of, or got pre-occupied with things should be mentioned to those waiting for you, they have every right to know. Time is of the essence. Calling, texting, e-mailing and always communicating is so imperative.

— Do not be a last minute RSVP person — If you get an invitation to a party, wedding, engagement, shower or other events 2-3 or 4 months in advance, or just 2 months in advance, and say the Card says shower is on July 31st, but your RSVP Reservation with the number of persons in attendance must be due by July 10 or July 15th — but then have someone say they are attending on July 27th or 28th, just a couple of days before is so wrong. You had all that time to decide. Do not just leave it as last minute. RESPOND as soon as possible —- It is money, and time was talking here. These people need to prepare and get numbers into the banquet halls or create the tables and how many plates to add… Be respectful. They did a great thing by including you, Help them in the process.

In the news recently, there was a couple who missed their ship while they were on a cruise itinerary. They were supposed to be back on the ship during a designated time, but they were late.  That is why you never be late. Consequences like this happen due to lateness. People need to stop being late for things and be on time and be early! These things can be avoided. I have no sympathy for people like this at all. You are late, it’s too bad. Should have followed procedure.

People need to look at the time and be on time. I hate lateness.

Cruises request you to be back on board half an hour to an hour before disembarking from a port of call. It’s not hard to follow. People like this drive me crazy.

Even during flights. I have no sympathy for late people at all. If you miss your flight because you are late, it is your fault and you are responsible. If your flight or your cruise ship leaves without you, don’t be angry and throw a fit. You always have time to make it. super early Arrival is key and important.

The only acceptable and exceptions I give to people who are late is if there is super bad traffic out there, unfortunately, someone had to be rushed to hospital or something else terrible happened and tardiness/lateness arises, and stuff that is out of our control, well its okay, but there is absolutely no other excuse.

Have you been a victim of a person who has stood you up? Have you been someone who is the one to always wait for others to be on time? Have people contacted you to say they will be late? Are you always the early one to arrive well in advance because you have been taught to respect time and ones who have proper etiquette? It is always good to be like that.

Do you have bad habits when it comes to procrastination? Do you have bad habits of being late because you had to do your hair and make-up? Do you have the bad habit to show up to a party 2-3 hours later knowing that everyone has already eaten, so you get the cold food after or they are going to have to make an extra batch for you to heat your food up, or have missed the beginning speeches or whatever it is? Change your bad habits, work on being courteous and on time. It saves a lot of problems with people depending on you.

Also, do not say you will be there, and then not show up.
Punctuality is key to success in business, relationships, friendships which then builds trust and common decency. Best wishes and to better time management!
