The morning of the darkest night,

you sit and look at me so hopeless.

The thoughts of this chapter,

still haunts me every day.

 

The cold eyes you stare,

why must I be this way.

Why must we live this way,

why must we accept.

 

The mistakes that led me here,

so desperate and alone.

Remind the ones that use to love me,

let them believe there was some good in me.

 

Im going to leave this pedant here,

just in case you cared to find it.

The disappointment I brought to you,

the life you could have had.

 

So this is it,

the chapter that we have started.

The chapter that led me to this road,

that I must answer for when im gone.

Last week I read this article about communication and how lack of communication causes major issues in relationships. I must completely and utterly agree with this statement. If my (friend, partner, wife, girlfriend) does not know how I feel, what I need, and what I want my life to look like in the next three to five years. It’s really amazing how many couples go weeks before they have a moment to discuss these three questions.

What kind of motion does this question really bring to the table? Consider this for a second. If my partner does not know how I feel today, then my irritated state of mind might offend her and she will have no idea why I snapped. Furthermore, if I don’t know what my partner is thinking about, I cannot help her through her hard times. There are specific’s about these questions that requires attention from both couples. The second question in particular. What you need as a person should be expressed so your partner and you are on the same page. The problem arises and deepens when your partner does not know what you are expecting of her. Same applies for women that expect certain stuff out of their man. Expectation brings responsibilities and what I have seen so far in life, most people are not responsible. That were we get fights, breakups, and approximately 55% divorce rate in the United States. The lack of communication causes issues in the relation and creates problems. The last question  focuses on your higher motives in life. Where you want your life to be simply address your goals and dreams. For example, if your wife has a goal of opening up a small flower shop in the next five years, and you know this. This will help you both to stay motivated with the financing, show how much you care, and can allow you to discover how well you work together. A couple that work well together can go beyond the petty daily discussions and become something more.

Communication is the key to success I read once. We as people should do a better job communicating our thoughts, feelings, and ideas. It’s how others know what we want, and prove to us how they can be the people we need them to be.

Have you ever been in a situation where someone said something to you, and instead of responding, you stayed quiet and smiled? I use to be one of those people that would smile and nod my head when someone said something intimidating to me and I had no response. It’s crazy how this world works. I am going to share my experience and you can either accept it or not, but let’s see if we can get a good discussion out of it.

As a young adult, I was considered soft spoken and noble. I would not dare respond to anyone especially a possible threat to me. I would simply accept the fault, either mine or the complainant and accept it and move on. However, as I grew up, I realized that more and more problems occur to me when I respond to them in this matter. So after a few life lessons, I decided to respond and demand things that are within my rights. Life seems to be more in tune with the way I operate when I respond to them accordingly. I realized that people cannot guess how I feel and what I want if I don’t ask for it.

What I suggest for everyone.

Since people cannot read minds and most people do not have emotional knowledge (people that can look for signs of how a person is doing emotionally and anticipate what they mind need) then what’s left is to simply speak up. If you are feeling annoyed about a specific thing at work, speak up. Simply call a meeting with your immediate supervisor and express your concerns. The more you let others know how you feel, the smoother your life will be. The less anger will build and less stress you would deal with. It does not matter the type of person you are. The less people speak, the more others take advantage of.

What I have noticed…

There was a time where two brothers lived together in a family of four. One of the brothers was demanding, even as a child. He would want everything when he went shopping with his mother and refuse to understand financial situations and how things work. The other brother was softer spoken. Thought four times before he asked for anything and refused to be a bother to anyone. Guess who had a more happy childhood. The demanding child got whatever he wanted and was happier than the other one. What they say is very true. Ignorance is really bliss. He never understood or simply didn’t care.

Refuse to understand and take what you need. We are all still animals with a mask we choose to wear. Some refuse to wear it and show their animal side. Others choose to hold higher values and standards. The one that uses the animal side and demands their rights wins in the end.

 

Have you read an article online and was simply baffled by your experienced. If you are anything like me, I am sure you experienced this. For me, it usually occurs on www.yahoo.com. Of the many email address I have created throughout the years, my oldest and most used email tends to be on yahoo. I like yahoo’s system and it works well with me. However, I hate the fact that I spend ample hours of my day reading mind blasting article titles to only find something absolutely useless in the body irritates me.  (I was exaggerating on the mind blasting part..)

Seriously people, how can someone write an article about what your boyfriend is thinking; only to open it and it’s like nothing useful in it. How can this possibly be that most of Yahoos articles consist of a very edgy title, and fluff throughout the article? I read so many of these edgy, controversial articles that I am an expert on losing weight, finding the perfect job, and choosing the best college for the highest paid jobs.

This has to stop especially for people like me. I read an exciting article and click to read more. However, I waste time and time again on articles that reveal absolutely nothing. A good example of such an article is http://travel.yahoo.com/ideas/8-foods-you-should-never-eat-before-flying.html. I find it useless. It has a great title, a awesome attractive picture, but the content is whatever at best. I suggest yahoo to hire the top 20 bloggers on word press and let them write for a change. Good content go unseen and garbage is seen by the whole world. (or at least the 11% that go on yahoo)

I’m sorry but I felt the need to vent. Excuse the irony of wasting your time with another pointless article.

 

Have you ever wondered how your life might be if you had two opinions of everything? It is a pretty strange question when you look at it carefully. If you have not noticed, I am talking about people with multiple personalities. When I was younger I thought it was strange when I watched a movie of a man in the mental asylum where he heard voices and spoke to himself. It baffled me how people like this existed in society. I was by far too young to understand mental diseases and to comprehend the fact that people’s mind can get sick.

As a grown, respected part of society, I realized that this is more common among adults that work in a highly stressful job site. Consider this; most people do not know that they can do pretty much anything they want in this life. There is not a thing in this world that should stop you from achieving your goals and becoming the person you are meant to be. I found this to be true, and realized it’s all in your head. When a person decides that it’s not going to work out for him or limits himself in his or her head, then that’s all they will ever amount too. It’s strange how our brains and fantasies can control outcomes and how successful we can become.

Let get back on track and discuss why two opinions are better than one. You always have someone to keep you company and provide both positive and negative feedback. In addition to feedback, it can provide support to anything you may want to do. Consider yourself going to an important meeting and you want to discuss a possible scenario. What do you do? Talking to yourself can give you that leverage you need and the preparation you should have when going into an important meeting. It’s just another way to prepare yourself and give you the confidence you need to get the job done.

Lately i been doing some thinking regarding how life really works. I tend to get this way when i am entering  a new chapter in my life. The topic of discussion is how time works and how valuable it is for our society and specifically me.

What is time? Time is a man made invention to keep track of our lives on earth. Its strange how we created such a thing to keep track of the minutes and hours of the day, but so many of us, including myself spend majority of it wasted. I picture the amount of time that i spend on the computer simply browsing the web. How about the hours spend on online gaming. How come I dont put my time to good use and do something productive? Is it strange that majority of the people i know if they are not working, they are wasting away their time doing mindless things? Am i the only one concerned about this. I feel like its only in America that we spend our time so foolishly. I heard stories of the Asian culture putting more time and energy in studying important stuff that will one day help us reach unbelievable heights. Us on the other hand, fail to even graduated our pathetic public school system. How sad is that really..

There is a solution my friends. It takes 1 simple class with a devoted teacher to express how important time really is. I believe the first 12 years of schooling for most Americans should be about the essence of life with the basics of English and mathematics. What our public school system has failed is to motivate its crew (students) to reach out and think outside the box. Develop something new or even venture off into the distance for new discoveries and more.

How can you motivate our youth to use their time wisely for something much more important than TV or Internet? I believe to teach our youth the value of time and how short we have to create something important or simply make a difference in our world can dramatically help with the motivation to do more. Our ancestors knew the value of time, because they were the ones who created it. Now that we have time, and plenty of it, we choose to waste it away. I am here to tell you to use it for good, and use it to help people discover new things and learn something new.

Average time spent on earth is roughly 73 years old depending on who you ask in the United States. With that said, we are increasing our life expectancy every year. What for? Most inventors and astrologist have done and discovered far more within their 40-50 year life cycle than we have in our 75 year. Every new generation our productivity drops lower and lower. Our attention span follows at a striking rate.

 

Make use of your time!

To know where you came from,

will determine how far you get in life.

Since I started off in the gutters,

I was promised struggle and fear.

 

As a child of nearly seven,

learning to survive is to save,

because without education you are nothing,

and without money you cannot escape.

 

Many nights of confusion,

led me to believe,

life as I knew it had to change,

before we sunk deeper into this mess.

 

I grew up wondering,

what path I was destine to take.

Society didn’t make it easy,

lost opportunities denied,

denied at birth.

 

One day I discovered this opportunity,

to leave this place I once knew as home.

I studied real hard to pass the test,

with the idea of me leaving this place.

 

With my luck I passed,

was given the opportunity to leave this place,

to study aboard and succeed,

I was choosen out hundreds.

 

Since destine is established at birth,

there is nothing you can really do.

I was told I was too young,

and we could not afford to commute.

 

After the heart has been broken,

its difficult to piece it back together.

The beginning of the end was written,

predetermined, and pre decided.
