Not again!

Why do the people who write-up the daily prompts; enjoy this topic? It upsets me to think of such times.

It hurts!

Well, today’s “365 writing prompts” challenge said:

Helplessness, that dull, sick feeling of not being the one at the reins. When did you last feel like that? And what did you do about it?

What are the chances? Fate? Coincidence? That today’s writing challenge prompt would be about Helplessness.

When did I last feel like THAT?

That was a simple question to ask and not so hard to answer.
Tonight, when I got the news that my dear dear dear grandmother passed away.

I felt so helpless,
Nothing I do will make her come back,
Nothing I do will make things better.
I felt so helpless,
just another mere mortal,
having to part with my dearest people to death.
I felt so helpless,
just another mere mortal,
taken over by the unknown
and surrendering to death one day
to join many others before me.
Nothing will help me to feel better and lose this feeling of helplessness.

Maybe only the faith in a better life and a better world after death, and my sheer determination to live my life to the best, (the way I would like it to be) can help me go through it.

My Favourite Person

This is the first one of the 365 writing prompts of 2014 that I do not like.

“What’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favourite person? Tell us about it.”

How can you choose ONE favourite person? And why would you want me to recall such times and remember the feelings I went through and still are going through?

That is all I have for this prompt.


2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for my blog.

WordPress just keeps on amazing me, they keep on getting my blogging experience more interesting and fun.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 33 trips to carry that many people.

Cool ideas, now I am definitely looking forward for 2014. 😀

Quote Me! The Optimist within!

The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose – Kahlil Gibran

Is the glass half-full? Or is it half-empty?

The optimist within me likes to believe it is always full, either with water or air, it is technically, always FULL.

There has to be a bright side for everything, you just have to be open to see it 😉


A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties – Harry Truman
