on friendship and shopping

Define friendship.

Friendship… in Wikipedia is defined as
the cooperative and supportive relationship between people. In this sense, the term connotes a relationship which involves mutual knowledge, esteem, affection, and respect along with a degree of rendering service to friends in times of need or crisis. Friends will welcome each other's company and exhibit loyalty towards each other, often to the point of altruism. Their tastes will usually be similar and may converge, and they will share enjoyable activities. They will also engage in mutually helping behavior, such as the exchange of advice and the sharing of hardship. A friend is someone who may often demonstrate reciprocating and reflective behaviors. Yet for some, the practical execution of friendship is little more than the trust that someone will not harm them.

Friendship… by definition or shall I say serious and right definition is always positive. But in reality, life is both positive and negative. Some friends will use the term to con or scam their own friends. Others will use it as an alternative option for a collateral damage. And a few will use it to gain power.

Friendship… like in a women's large clothing store presents a wide variety of style, color, sizes and price. You go to look for something in your mind and you find something that will totally blow your mind. You tried everything that appeals to your taste and you either end up buying all that you tried or leave the store empty handed. And you browse the collection hoping that you will find the right outfit only to find out that you either cannot afford it or somebody else has already bought it. In other words, friendship is just like shopping... you need a keen eye, sharp intuition and positive judgment to get a great deal.

Friendship… like shopping is complicated but a necessity.

WORDS plus

PISCES - The Partner for Life

Caring and kind. Smart. Likes to be the center of attention. Very organized. High appeal to opposite sex. Likes to have the last word. Good to find, but hard to keep. Passionate, wonderful lovers. Fun to be around.. Too trusting at times and gets hurt easily.. VERY caring. They always try to do the right thing and sometimes gets the short end of the stick... They sometimes get used by others and get hurt because of their truJustify Fullsting. Extremely weird but in a good way. Good sense of humor!!! Thoughtful. Loves to joke. Very popular. Silly, fun and sweet. Good friend to other but needs to be choosy on who they allow their friends to be. 5 years of bad luck if you do not forward.

I got this in my email one day. As I was reading it I realized that some of the words are true and some are still debatable.

I used to be fond of horoscope when I was a little younger. Now that I am a little older it still fascinates me but I am not as eager to know my future… especially if it is followed by the phrase… bad things will happen if you do not forward… or something to that effect.

Well, this particular horoscope doesn’t tell me anything about my future but rather it gives me some light on why I do things. And most of the words used here are kind and positive so it made me feel good.


You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how good word can make people feel good. We are taught how to be nice to others. We are told to do the golden rule. And we have grown to know that saying nice words to others makes you a nice person.

Nice words… good deeds… positive attitudes… aren’t they easy as A, B, C? Isn’t it easier to say good words? Isn’t it easier to see good deeds? Isn’t easier to recognize positive attitudes? Assuming that your answer is YES… then why are there people who can’t talk nicely? Why are there people who are not happy when others are doing good deeds? Why are there people who only see the negative things in others?

Life is so short, as they always say. It could be a cliche but it is also a reality. Nobody can go wrong if once in a rare while people will think about doing the right thing. Doing good things is a great investment, so to speak. So why not invest on it?

Familiarity bridges contempt, so they say.

With all the routine of life, things become so common and boring. People would strive to make a difference because they think that's the only way they could be uncommon.

Everyone wants to stand out. Everyone wants a special place. And everyone wants to be different.

Still, when things are unachievable, we resort to the old ways. When life after the change become unfavorable, we go back to old habits. And when people tend to be unbearable, we use our common sense.

Life in general is common as seen in different angles. The key to good life is not making the difference but using our common sense to see life as a blessing. And that - is the difference.

It is said the there is nothing permanent in this world but change.

Like the changing seasons... it is constant. It is regular. It is expected.

But change is also something that people hate because of fear to being out of their comfort zone. People are afraid of changes because of the uncertainties. People are of afraid of changes because of the unknown. And people are afraid of changes because of the unfamiliarity.

But change is unbeatable. It is the only thing stable. It is the only thing that is inevitable. And it is the only thing that is certain.

This New Year... it is not a necessity to change but if the change is for the better... then it should be accommodated. Change is not a bad thing. It is only a proof that we are evolving. It is the only way to make the wrong... right. It is the only thing that will give a person a chance to undo the mistakes he has done.

This New Year... we may or may not make new resolutions - to change anything but we can always change our mind.

Happy New Year Everyone.
