    BEING ALONE VS. LONELINESS

    Long gone are the days that I could spent by myself, doing whatever or whatever not. I love being alone as much I love being in a company of family or friends. Before having a family, I loved making a decision of being alone once in a while. As I became a parent plus five years ago, I haven’t had a lot of extra time on my hands. Not to mention me-time.

    THE GIFT OF IMAGINATION

    TODAY’S KIDS Having an amazing imagination is gift that keeps on giving. These days kids don’t run wild in the nature anymore and let their imagination grow and expand by doing so. Instead they are busy staring their screens like little zombies. Only time they get outside is to go to a nearest park and take 100 shots of themselves to prove it. How can I criticize like this when I’m doing the same thing myself? Because I’ve done my fair share of running around in the forests, building huts and climbing trees and let my imagination go places I physically couldn’t. Kids today haven’t. They are struggling with their…
