Do you assume that everyone is just as kind, grateful, perseverant  as you are? 
(News Flash : No they are not!). 
Still be kind, grateful and perseverant anyway. 



Though I write posts and articles on eating healthy, deep inside I am lover of sweets. All the supermarkets, hypermarkets and bakeries have an big variety of freshly made traditional sweets during Ramadan. What a visual delight!. Visual...that's a restriction I have to follow.  I did buy a few of my personal favorites though.  Would have loved to buy more, and its just the two of us - my husband and I, and too many sweets is definitely not good for us.  And if we buy in plenty, we are bound to eat it so we are trying to exercise restraint.  Here are photos of sweets displayed at City Centre. My all time favorite is kanaafa. 


A mom visits her son for dinner who lives with a girl roommate. During the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how pretty his roommate was. She had long been suspicious of a relationship between the two, and this had only made her more curious....

Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between him and his roommate than met the eye. 
Reading his mom's thoughts, he said, “I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you,we are just roommates."

About a week later, his roommate came to him saying,
“Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver plate. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"

He said ,"Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her, just to be sure." 

He sat down and wrote :

Dear Mother:
I'm not saying that you ‘did' take the silver plate from my house, I'm not saying that you ‘did not' take the silver plate But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.

your son.

Several days later, he received an email from his mother which read:

Dear Son:
I'm not saying that you ‘do' sleep with your roommate, and I'm not saying that you ‘do not' sleep with her. But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the silver plate by now, under her pillow…



Patience is not an ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting - Joyce Meyer

When we wait for things to change or wait for something good to happen, we are told to be patient. Sometimes the indefinite wait and not knowing what is in store or inability to predict an outcome when things are not in our hands can be stressing to the point of inflicting fear, worry and even bit of chaos. There is no 'one' answer to everyone's worries. How one person approaches a problem and tries to resolve it may or may not work for another person.  Each of us  have our personal guidance system inbuilt in us. We all have our own path to choose and our own decisions to make. When we stop the chatter in our minds, we become calm which allows our intuition, inner guidance and signs prepare us for making decisions.

The more we charge our intent with a positive attitude, our vibrations attract into our life, what is most suited for us. It's important to have more than one plan, so if plan A does not work, there is an alternative that we could resort to, plan B or a plan C. And remember, there is always an invisible power that guides you navigate through storms of life and reach you to your goal. Sometimes the universe surprises you with it's own plan that would wash away all your fears and worries, bringing you contentment, which surpasses all other plans. 

While you wait for things to work out, it's not only important to be patient but also keep a good attitude.
