I Wonder Introspection

On death and dying #FridayReflections

February 17, 2017

I don’t always think about dying. At least not my own death. As an anxious person, I have often worried about the death of loved ones, more specifically, my family. I have had nightmares as a child wondering how I’d cope. Now, while I no longer have nightmares, I guess the inevitability of it all is always there in my subconscious. However, my own death? That’s not something I worry about too often. It’s not because I think I won’t die…

Scare yourself #FridayReflections

February 10, 2017

When life gets busy, we tend to run on autopilot. We wake up, go to work, get home, cook, clean, relax and sleep. And then we repeat it all over again. If you’re like me, you probably like routine.

And then, nothing. In spite of all…

As we navigate this map called life, we encounter a number of people along the way. When we are innocent children, we accept the friendship of those who play with us; no strings attached. We are happy to play in the sand, push each other on swings, kick a football around. It’s the company we long for, the fun we have. Nothing more. Nothing less. When we begin school, we befriend those we see often. Sometimes it’s the girl you sit…

Pessimistic Me #FridayReflections

January 20, 2017

For as long as I can remember, I have been a pessimist. Always looking at the glass half empty. Always expecting the worst. I think it comes with being anxious. Or maybe the pessimism makes me more anxious and depressed. Chicken-and-egg, isn’t it? Anyway, while this year, I’m trying to work on my optimism and have certainly become less pessimistic in the last few years, I still wear my pessimistic glasses when I look at a lot of things in…
