When I feel uneasiness in life, I resort to Zen habits to provide me solace. Last few weeks have been like that. Something is not right with life. The only way to respond to life was a great short article from Leo, which I badly wanted. We need to enjoy happiness in life, however little it may be. Sometimes, we need to enjoy the moment without thinking about the future.
My life is little bit disturbed at this moment but, I am enjoying this disturbance. I do not want to think what’s in store. I don’t want to calculate the possibilities and impossibilities now, just like a paper boat I want to flow through the stream without thinking about the big waterfall at some distance. I want to enjoy this flow.
But, again, sometimes we need to be fearful for our own good. If my free flow is going to hurt someone I need to be cautious. If the flow is going to ruin my life, or someone else’s life, I need to stop. Perhaps I should soon find an answer.
Does it happen in your life too? When you know the present happiness is going to bring sorrow later, what do you do? Do you stop enjoying to prevent it, or, you live in the moment?
Don’t you feel easing up a bit sometimes? Don’t you enjoy being fearless and careless with no one to answer to? Its like just going with the flow and enjoying every moment of it.
Life is so complicated!
Since June I lost 30% of search engine traffic, due to some Google algorithmic changes, now I think I got back those. Since last one week traffic is restored. I am now relaxed. Success of a blog is determined by the visitors count. Fellow bloggers brag about their visitor numbers. I still don’t have plenty to compare with big bloggers. But, since childhood my parents taught me to never give up. I ain’t giving up!
I got my guest post published at the biggest ‘Mom blog’ Money saving Mom, if you want to read the article. I am honored that they published an article from someone who is not even a dad.
Facebook, Twitter and Email followers continues to increase every day.
The agency which is doing OCAAT redesign has been a disappointment so far. As per latest date, you can expect to see the changes by Tuesday, 09/25. I sincerely hope the new look would be accepted by you all. Readers, I value your time and effort, I will be glad if you let me know your opinion about the new look, when it comes alive.
Round up of good articles from fellow bloggers
Since my days are shortened by a challenging project, I am not able to read that many blogs I used to do. Still these are some that caught my attention and I am sure they may add values in your life.
How to fire your boss is so close to my situation. As disclosed in one of my earlier weekend chit chats, I am planning for this. If you’re burdened with something similar, you better start preparing.
If you’re single and looking for a partner, my friend Aloysa has some tips for you. I have known Aloysa for about a year now. We often chat on Google talk. She’s a nice woman who had seen a lot in her life. The biggest of all, she is the daughter of a Russian mail-order-bride. Aloysa, I am curious to know how you can determine if the guy never going to divorce? Any magic formula? (if you happen to read the post, I expect your opinion in comments)
Another of my blogger friends, Michelle, from See Debt Run, wrote about an inspiring story of her father successfully fighting cancer and coming out of it triumphantly. I recently lost a distant family member due to cancer, and I still see him on my Facebook, online, don’t know ‘how’. Perhaps his wife wants to live with her hubby’s Facebook profile in his absence. This story sure can inspire us.
Fancifully named, ‘Average Joe’ presented a glimpse in to president Obama’s investment portfolio. You can sneak a peek as well there. Interesting to see President’s reliance on index funds.I have been telling you all along not to concentrate on individual stocks but, index funds instead. If you’re not a pro, leave it to the pros when it comes to stock picking.
If you are an aspiring blogger, my friend Robert at College Investor has a massive interview with 5 greatest bloggers and dug out their secrets of making it big. If you have enough passion, you can do it. I am inspired, to say the least.
Please do not feel only my blogging friends wrote the best posts this week, there were other great posts too, but I didn’t read them. I only happen to read the blogs I am accustomed to reading. And the bloggers have become my friends over time, they are part of my life now.
