The Year Is Flying By So Quickly – Live Life To The Fullest Extent

This morning I woke up, and the first thing came to my mind was how fast this year rolling by. We have 4 and a half months left until 2013. Can you believe it? We are already almost in the middle of August. That is so crazy. I remember when we just celebrated the new year and now were almost back to school and everything else. I can’t believe how fast the years are flying by. I always say to live life to the fullest extent and always make each day count in your life. You never know when it is your time, so you must always cherish the time you have on earth, because it is only a limited time. My parents always said that when you are young you must always work hard in everything, so that when you grow up and get to a certain age in your life, you will have an easy life later. If you slack off and don’t work hard you will have a hard life later with many complications. They are so right about that because in life we will always encounter the easy times and hard times and in between. Life is really how you make it, and how you portray yourself. Your name and your legacy are one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Make a great name out of you.

I believe that life is a special gift given to us by God and our parents. I could see some people around me who are having babies and I could see the struggle they go through to raise children and to feed them, nurture them, clean them, take care of them, love them and teach them the right things early. It isn’t easy to be parents at all. It is one of the toughest jobs out there, but don’t let that deter you from having children of your own. They are a blessing to have and it changes the home, and life for families and its a beautiful thing to hear the voice of a baby and the laughter of a baby. It is so sweet and precious. I know as they grow and become toddlers, kids, children, teenagers and adults, they will go through phases and that is the evolution of life. Were only a little creature in our mom’s tummy and we grow and grow.

I always thank my parents for giving me life and raising me and being where I am today 27 years later. Although I have had a rough childhood with people bullying me, and with people terrorizing me, but that didn’t stop me from living my life, and that didn’t stop me from being me. I believe strongly in living life to the fullest and the heck with people whom bring me down and who bring my dreams down and think that I cannot do anything, because I have made people bite their tongue and not talk so big and it backfired on many people. They think they can always bring me down and dictate me and control me, but they can never control me. I am an adult now, and I can make my own decisions. Life is beautiful. It is all in the way you look at it. I love my life now and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in this world.

So live your life, be happy, and don’t take everything so seriously. There is a time for everything. So live a little.

Kid’s Are So Spoiled These Days. I Just Never Knew How Much Until Yesterday

So Yesterday, I was out on my regular shopping and I came across this kid who looked like she was 6 or 7 years old and her mother in the same aisle. I was looking at stuff and all of a sudden the kid sees something she likes, and then all of a sudden she says Mommy can I have this? The mother said no you cannot have that, the kid started to make a huge fuss and ask why? I want it now, and treating the mother terribly, then the mother said no again and the child started to cry and scream out, I was just watching this whole thing from afar and I was about to intervene, but I said you know what? I am not going to do anything. The Mother said, that’s it were going home and she said your punished, and I am taking away your cell phone. So they took off without buying anything in the store. The mother got so furious. Never mind all that, but cell phone at age 6-7? You have got to be kidding me right? I was at a loss for words that such a young child who barely got out of playing with baby toys and plastic and in the colouring phase that has a cell phone. I cannot believe how spoiled children have become. They do anything to get what they want, but I really commend this mother who kept saying no to her child. I guess the mother came to a point and put her foot down and not let her have that, but the cell phone thing really turned me off.

I just cannot believe it, I never had my first cell phone until I was 18 years old. I was so happy with my crayons, I was so happy playing with my little dolls, I was so happy with the creativity, and imagination I had when I was a kid. I did crafts, I created so many things, I drew things, I did arts and crafts with glue, coloured paper, and so much more. Now kids rely on technology to do the thinking for them and now everything revolves around keyboards and they cannot do a day without them which is pretty sad. Before I would see a lot more kids outside playing, riding bikes, playing road hockey and doing outdoor things, but now the residential streets are more quiet and kids are inside playing video games or are on the computer or texting with cell phones to other friends. If the parents keep saying yes for the kid to have the latest gadgets and if they parents don’t say no, the child obviously becomes spoiled so much and just one day when you say no, they make a big stink about it in the store, they start to threaten the mother or father at the store, they start to make a big scene, but how will we teach our children about saving money? How will we teach our children about not getting everything their classmates or friends have? How kids should not copy other people and be their own person.

I remember there was so many things that came out, and my parents always taught me just because somebody else has something it doesn’t mean that you should have it too. My parents taught me a lot when I was growing up, and I was content and happy with what I had. They told me that kids in the world don’t have toys to play with, food to eat, and other things in life, and a lot of those children in impoverished countries and places where they don’t have running water, create their own games, create their own toys and play with their friends, relatives, siblings. Its very important to realize that when kids are too spoiled and the parents always say yes to their children and they don’t get what they want, the parents need to sit down and talk to their kids, they need to teach kids values, lessons and tell them to watch videos on how kids live in third world countries, get them to realize that these kids have it so good, they have a roof over their heads, food to eat, and necessities of life. Kids should not complain that they don’t have an Ipod or the latest gaming console, or the latest cell phone or something. They should be fortunate enough and always be thankful to their parents for giving them a good life, for giving them more important things in life rather than material things. Materialism is unbelievable and when kids grow up to be spoiled and always get what they want, then they will do that to their kids and their kids will do that to theirs.

Sit down with your kids, talk to them, do something that will benefit them in the future. Kids should work more on their personalities, morale, quality, and start gaining responsibility. When kids learn at a young age, the future will be bright for them, and when they exercise the good things in life and stop making a big fuss in a store because they didn’t get what they wanted, should be a good lesson. Yesterday when I was shopping like I said with the mother and child who had a cell phone, that did it for me, and I just had to write about it, in today’s blog. I am so concerned on how spoiled kids have gotten and it needs to stop. I cannot stress it enough. Parents give their children a lot of freedom, they give them way too much than they can really handle. It’s time to say no and teach kids that having everything others have is not a great thing. don’t copy other people, be your own person and so what if other kids laugh, it all begins with the big figures in their lives which are their parents. Try it out. spend time with them and teach them. It’s the best way to go.

 

To All The Beautiful Mothers Out There. Thank You For All You Do! Happy Mothers Day!

I know that, there are special dates in the year that celebrate birthdays, mothers day, fathers day, valentines day, so on and so forth, but those days should be everyday. As we celebrate our beautiful Mothers out there this weekend, It is so important to never forget how special our mothers are. without them we wouldn’t have come into this world. Our Mothers are our beams of our lives and we must enjoy them, listen to them, appreciate them. Mothers do so many jobs at once, cook, clean, advise, take her children out, nurture, feed, anything you can possibly imagine. It is not an easy job being a mother, but for a lot of mothers out there. It is a joy and awesome feeling to be one. It is full time job, but it should be one that enjoys and who can be a great role model for the kids, so when the kids grow up, they will have manners, etiquette, respect for others and appreciating of the necessities around them. What special thing do you have planned for your mother? What cool idea do you have to have a great mothers day? Well, I am sure her answer would be to have her kids and family over and share that special day to be together always.

Mothers worry so much about their kids and want what is best. Mothers are always there in good times and the bad times. Mothers are a special gift to us and we should cherish them as much as we can, grow with your parents, create memories, play board games, enjoy everything that she is. Mothers are like our best friends where we can have a shoulder to cry on and a nice hug. All these emotions are so incredible and having that connection with your mother with lots of love and respect, Your relationship with your mother will be so much stronger. All I want to say is thank you to all the courageous and beautiful mothers out there for everything you provide, for everything you do, and everything that you are.

There are some people who are unlucky and they are those who lost their mother at any age, My condolences to the families who have lost a mother. It is not an easy thing to go through year after year and that pain and that struggle never goes away, but learning to accept it, and learning to move on is a difficult process. I know exactly how that feels losing very close family members. There were 3 Mothers who lost their lives in my family within 2 months this year in January and February, 2012. Just like that. When I lost my Grandmother in 2008, When I lost my Great Grandmother in 1999, it was some of the most difficult times in my life. I lost people whom I really enjoyed being around and cared about deeply. No mother can ever be replaced. It just won’t be the same ever. Which is why never take being with a parent for granted, always say I love you to them, always listen and do what they ask of you because they know and have been in that experience and never question a mothers intuition. It comes naturally. They feel if something is wrong, they feel what the kids feel, they do everything. It is a shocking experience to lose someone so close to you. Again my sincere condolences. Your mother is looking and watching over you from above and she will always love you, will always be in your life, will always be in your heart, mind and soul forever. She will never stop being your mother no matter what happens.
