Your Inner Child

Do you now what is the saddest thing about growing up? The saddest part about becoming an adult is that despite the fact that we grow up and grow old physically, our inner child never ages. In every single one of us, there lives an inner child waiting to be pampered silly, have fun and live life to the fullest.

As we go through life's challenges, overcome them, learn from them, our inner child lives on, waiting.

The reason why some of the modern folks today have so much difficulty in coming to terms with themselves is that their inner child lives on in a dark, cold, damp locked-up room with its legs strapped tightly under lock and chain. We never let the inner child speak because we are not supposed to.

To hell with that – to the outside world, if our inner child was a real person, that would firmly be classified as a case of child abuse. No matter what it is that we do with life, we have to have a small moment of repose and have a sit-down session with our inner child whereby the inner child is allowed to speak and express itself. That is how life is supposed to be live.

Grown-ups are boring and we are strapped down by responsibilities and things that we have to do and achieve. There is a never ending list of chores that we HAVE TO respond to and complete. Otherwise...we are not being responsible.

However, there are some people that I know of today, who let their inner child roam free in the grown-up world. The inner child provides for the instincts and the growing-up part of our selves listen and educate the inner child. The inner adult and inner child lives in complete harmony with each other.

This person(s) laugh out loudly, break out in banter just 'because', don't take him or herself too seriously. This type of person is completely at ease with himself because there is an understanding relationship between his or her inner child and inner adult.

So, don't strap your inner child down because it causes imbalance in your life. No matter how old you are, your inner child dies only when you die. Listen to the laughter and heed the needs of that little one inside of you.

Even if it means running around scaring the bejeesoos out of your kids because it's silly and fun. Even if it means throwing marbles into the pool when no one is there although you know there's hell to be paid tomorrow when the cleaners find out who is giving them more work of fishing out those marbles the next morning. Even if it means experimenting with food like putting eating ice-cream with mushroom soup.

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

The Short Hair Scandal

Except for a short period of my life where I donned long hair (which was mightily unkempt), I've mostly sported the short or bob hair cut. I just didn't have the time to deal with the straightening, curling, or whatever it is that women are required to do before they get out of the house to buy a bag of salt from the grocery store.  I've wanted to write something about how An San, a rising archer from South Korea,  got flack for sporting a short crop . Despite her performing with near stellar perfection.  How is having short hair a sign or declaration of anti-men?  Are men who wear their hair long anti-women, then? I don't even know where this is going because it doesn't even make sense. LOL. Short hair is simply easier to manage. The flip side is that if you have to attend a gala or a big event, short hair is even harder to style! PLUS, some women just look fantabulous with a short crop!
