See you on the other side

December 22, 2010

As I head on one last vacation this year, I present to you some popular blog posts — one from each month. Some you might be reading for the first time, others you might like revisiting.

  • Communication is the key – We’ve heard often that communication is the key to success in personal relationships. Good in theory, but how does one go about applying it in life? Find some handy tips on strengthening your marriage.
  •  

  • I appreciate you — I invite you to read about my experience with these three important, but underused and often overlooked, words. For those who read this back in February, this might just be the reminder you need heading into 2011.
  •  

  • Not wired 24/7 – iPads are not quite as ubiquitous as smart phones, but I predict that by this time next year, more people will be more wired than ever before. Just remember to take a break once in a while and actually enjoy this thing called life.
  •  

  • Untitled — This poem will give you goosebumps. Based on the right of a child to be protected from abuse and exploitation, this poem won an award from UNICEF … and it introduced me to my life partner.
  •  

  • Silence is golden – Need I say more? Read on and welcome the feeling of peace that will engulf you.
  •  

  • Empathy and Sympathy — It took me a long time to understand the difference between these two. I share with you my interpretation based on my life experiences. How do you distinguish between empathy and sympathy?
  •  

  • Celebrating Life — The story of a dying woman who, through her courageous battle with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, taught me the real meaning of living well.
  •  

  • What’s in a name? — You knew I’d bring this one out of the woodworks, didn’t you? Well, at least by the end of (re)reading this one, you’ll know for sure how to pronounce my name correctly!
  •  

  • What do you believe? — An introspective piece resulting from a high-schooler’s questions about my religious beliefs. Well, I don’t subscribe to organized religion and I really haven’t received any proof, yet, of god’s existence. Read and you’ll know how I became a “hopeful agnostic.”
  •  

  • I Am Not Perfect — I believe you are not either, so go ahead, rejoice in your imperfect, happy self.
  •  

  • Mansi asks: What is Patriotism? — This was a hard one and I didn’t get many insights about what patriotism means to the average person. I’d be interested in your viewpoint … especially if you are a cricket fan!
  •  

  • Gone Are the Days — A fitting end to this list. This is a poem that I hope to read every once in a while just so I don’t forget how to enjoy the simple pleasures of everyday living.
  •  

I promise to be back next year with more of the same (because that’s how you like it, right?).

Thank you so much for being part of this journey with me. Have a wonderful and safe holiday season.
