Off to Mathrid

A thought for today:
A person who is crooked can never enjoy real peace of mind. his tricks tie him into knots
Few more hours and I would be leaving to Madrid for Xmass and NYE. So I guess this is my last post for now. I will not stop commenting though; I will check on you guys whenever possible, can’t leave you for long, addicted? Heheheeeeee you bet
BTW; my NLP course ended today and with it I marked the last day of my working career as an engineer. I guess by now I should change my occupation on my profile to: Retired Consultant Engineer and a Blossoming Yoga Instructor 🙂
And as it is this last post I decided to have a variety, and here it goes:

A joke for the road:

A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him, “Father, I have a problem. I have two female parrots, but they only know how to say one thing.” “What do they say?” the priest inquired. They say, “Hi, we’re hookers! Do you want to have some fun?”
“That’s obscene!” the priest exclaimed; then he thought for a moment. You know,” he said, “I may have a solution to your problem. I have two male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the Bible. “Bring your two parrots over to my house, and we’ll put them in the cage with Frank and Jacob. My parrots can teach your parrots to pray and worship, and your parrots are sure to stop saying that phrase in no time.”
“Thank you,” the woman responded, “this may very well be the solution.” The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest’s house. As he ushered her in, she saw that his two male parrots were inside their cage, holding rosary beads and praying.
Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in with them. After a few minutes, the female parrots cried out in unison: “Hi, we’re hookers! Do you want to have some fun?” There was stunned silence.
Shocked, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and exclaimed, “Put the beads away, Frank, our prayers have been answered!
Heheheeeeeeee males are males

The “Me Time”

Never Ending Wait


In a café au Vichy

on “du Willson” rue

A mellow Latino melody

Reminded me of you

A bittersweet coffee I sip

While enjoying cool breeze

What right did you have to dip

In my cup with ease?

Music to my ears was passing

Lyrics of “Maria’s” song

Brought back memories of us dancing

On a dance floor, not so long

On the stairs of Monamarte

Two lovers beside me kiss

The love palette portrayed the art

Atop Paris; as if in bliss

I close my eyes to free my soul

of what is taking it’s toll

On my heart, along the space

That plundered your sweet embrace

It seems no matter how far I roam

I stay a prisoner in a dome

For a wishful coin of hopeless fate

To end my never ending wait.

Lady Godiva

    Have a lovely time in Madrid. Looks like 2005 will be a year of new beginnings for you. That parrot joke is so funny. Your poem evokes Montmartre nostalgically.

    Hi Rabab 😉 just wanted to say I miss you and Happy new year 😉
    I wonder how Spain is this time of year .. I’ve only been there during the summer. How’s the fun and the clubbing and how are the ppl? .. do they still give out free smiles with a glint of happy fun loving mischief in their eyes? 🙂 I remember how it used to smell like sunshine and flowers whenever I walked past some swimming pool on my way to the underground station 🙂 does it still smell like sunshine and flowers? Or does the smell change in winter?
    Hope your having the time of your life sweety 😉 if anyone deserves it I know it’s you :*wa7

    Hey girl, I missed you too, just got back last night and I’m preparing to write all about Spain. So you are half Bahraini ha? No wonder I fell for you so easily (ana amoot 3ala hal elBa7rain), my best friend; the one I traveled with is from Bahrain and she holds a Spanish nationality as well. God, it’s so relaxing to be back in the vicinity of my own bed with “useless” my beloved teddy bear 😉

    When we are born our brains are like empty computers waiting to be fed information. As we grow our peers act as our programmers, they supply us with the knowledge which we channel through the conscious mind into the subconscious (our hard drive). The subconscious mind is the biggest hard drive ever developed – it stores everything we come in contact with and by no means is all of this information of a positive nature.
    All that we have heard, touched, smelt, tasted and seen are stored in the recesses of our minds. The subconscious mind holds on to this information until we need to recall it. For example when you were young your curiosity lead you to investigate your surroundings. When you approached a substance that was dangerous, such as fire, your parents or guardians would most likely have rebuked or scolded you if you ventured too near the flame. Perhaps you may even recall an incident when you were physically burned. Your subconscious mind then began to relate scolding (or pain) with the intense heat of the fire and would therefore feed the feelings of the scolding incident back to you whenever you got too close to fire again, thus acting as an early warning system.
    This is the mechanism used by our brains to learn. It is also the same method employed by the mind in every situation. The subconscious mind has a tendency to emulate what it sees – it tends to replicate its environment. This is why so many people find themselves in similar relationships and situations that they saw their parents in while they were growing up. Most people also hold very strongly or similar views of their parents.
    Think of a time when you gave yourself praise. What words did you use? Do you use the same words that your parents or peers used when they were praising you? The same is applicable when you scold yourself.

    Watch your internal dialogue. Look at it closely. It takes diligence to change the way you think. When you notice yourself thinking a negative chose to think the opposite. This way you neutralise the negative thought. Now the think the positive thought again! You have just reversed the negative thinking in that moment and remember you only have this moment. No other time exists!
    Daydream about what might be. Imagine things they way you wish them to be. If you catch yourself thinking “this is just a daydream – a fantasy” then stop! Think the opposite. It is not a daydream it is your reality. Now think it again.

    By doing this simple procedure you will begin to retrain your subconscious mind to think positively and you will ultimately begin to consciously create a life that dreams are made of! personal development plan
