Food For Thought Friday


Do you Twitter or Facebook?
Both. I use Twitter more than Facebook though.

What are you looking most forward to this summer?
Summer is over on my part of the world. But I’m looking forward to summer next year – I hope a friend’s plan of coming home pushes through.

What is the easiest thing you fixed for dinner this week?
I did not even cook a single dish this week – lucky me! Thank heavens for mother and maids who cook :)

What are you envious about right now?
People who can eat and not gain a single pound! While I cannot even turn down a single slice of pie and need the best diet pill out there to help me lose weight! Life is unfair, what can I say :)

Recipe of the Week

(instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?)
Happiness comes not when desires are fulfilled but when desires are controlled.

Food 4 Thought Friday



What is looming on your to do list right now?

I have a lot of pending assignments to do and I don’t have much time to do them. On top of the list is the making of baby announcements of a former co-worker.


What was your life like this week?

It was pretty hectic – really. I’m trying to learn time management and it has been a struggle of detecting priorities and doing something about it. I struggle between what I “need” to do, from what I “want” to do, and from what is really the right thing to do.


What is a fear you currently have?

I’m scared if the kids get sick – any mother will worry about it.

When is the last time you took time for yourself?

I honestly do not know what to answer to that question.

Recipe of the Week (instead of your recipe for life, what is it just for this week?)

… that every relationship rests on three legs: accepting, supporting and challenging.

That’s really it, isn’t it? You want your relationships to be grounded on accepting each other as you are. On supporting each other through the inevitable ups and downs. On challenging each other to become more, to grow, to flourish. Which one of these is the more difficult one for you, and how are you going to practice it in the next 24 hours?
