Criticism

“Never explain, never retract, never apologize. Just get the thing done and let them howl” Nellie McClung

You have a love-hate relationship with criticism.

You do not love criticism because it can hurt you.

You may think it’s an unfair criticism but nothing you can do about it.

You enjoy most if you are praised whether you deserve it or not.

You may listen to or even love others if they claim it’s constructive criticism.

I think constructive criticism is a nicer way of criticism without hurting the feelings of the person.

Is there such thing called constructive criticism??

I doubt.

Strictly speaking, criticism is criticism.

Read this quote

“There is nothing constructive about criticism… it’s always negative! Uplifting advice, on the other hand, is a rare thing of beauty!”
 AJ Vosse

Please share your views as to why you hate criticism of any kind.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

DENTAL FLOSS

“You don’t have to floss all your teeth…Just the ones you want to keep” 😂😂🤣 Unknown

Do you floss your teeth regularly?

My friend, remember to floss your teeth regularly every day.

Don’t give excuses.

Never toss the floss!

Do you know between brushing and flossing, flossing is more important?

I may be harsh here, but do you know what exactly it’s like if you don’t floss?

“It’s the  equivalent of wiping your butt cheeks and skipping the crack” Unknown

What happens if you don’t floss regularly?

  • Bad breath. I need not explain further. People avoid you and are embarrassed 😳 to tell you that you smell pungent.
  • Formation of cavities
  • Tartar builds up and your teeth and gums lose that shine
  • Gun diseases resulting in fall of teeth and you begging the dentist to provide implants for a pleasing face

TISSUE PAPER

“Use paper with care so that our trees don’t become rare Unknown

Can you recollect how Corona Pandemic created a toilet paper shortage?

I think it’s because of rumours and panicky buying, typical human psychology.

Toilet paper and Tissue paper became coveted items.

Definition of the human being by a philosopher

“Humans are the only creature in the world who cut trees, made paper from it and then wrote save trees’  on it” unknown

How to save trees?

Go digital.

Read, write and store documents in digital format.

Do you know?

Recycling of 1 ton of paper

  • Saves 70 trees
  • 60 lbs of air pollution
  • 2 barrels of oil

Akimbo

I have never come across the word ‘Akimbo’ till now.

Thanks to WP in general and Ragtag Daily Prompt in particular, I am learning something new regularly.

Thank you Brian of Bushboys Fame

What is Akimbo?

Akimbo

“Your body communicates as well as your mouth. Don’t contradict yourself” Allen Ruddock

It describes a particular position of the body rather sort of body language.

In this position, the hands are positioned on the hips and both elbows are bent outwards with arms.

This is a posture that communicates

  • Defiance
  • Confidence
  • Aggressiveness or
  • Arrogance

(Merriam Webster)

I am not sure what the above person intends to send the message to others.

As per the definition of Akimbo- this person in the above image- is supposed to convey defiance, confidence, aggressiveness or arrogance.

Do you think he is conveying any one of these expressions?

What are your thoughts?

I felt he is conveying nothing of those described in Akimbo, rather sad or confused as opposed to our definition.

And so much is about the study of body language by the experts.

Here the definition suits the body posture of the person but not the expression or body language supposed to convey.

Feel free to share your thoughts.

The above image is from my mobile. Apologies for the resolution.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Thursday Thoughts

“Don’t wait for tomorrow.

Because tomorrow does not wait for you.

Therefore tomorrow always comes tomorrow”  Unknown

Is it not true my friend?

As the image above tells- Tomorrow starts now.

But sadly we think that our life is linked with ‘tomorrow’.

This is because all our ‘wants’ can be fulfilled only during ‘tomorrow’.

We feel today’s life is horrible and hope for the best on the next day, though we are unaware of the future.

Why can’t we make best of today? 

My friend, do not dream of tomorrow but think of today.

The ‘right time’ doesn’t exist, the right time is now or never.

You may not agree with me but this is the truth.

Life is about your today’s journey and not tomorrow’s plans.

Somebody jokingly said-should I die before dinner or wait till tomorrow?

My friend tomorrow is eternal

You can never reach it!

Be wise and carry on for the moment.

Just laugh out loud for anything that happens to you today. 😃😃😃

The reason is, noting under your control so make better use of your destiny today.

At the end what you are supposed to do?

“Forgive Quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that made you smile.” Audrey Hepburn

Follow your bliss

Black Beauty

I find my bliss in photography.

I always wonder about the ability of the camera to freeze the moment- and this moment, we all know, we can never get back, but this amazing technology makes us re-live at that moment at any given time.

I am sure many of the other photographers agree with me that as we are busy taking photos of interest we forget ourselves.

We spend hours together to get the best angle possible and we try our level best to get the best shot whatever may be the time and where ever maybe we are.

On many occasions, we annoy our spouses and near and dear ones because we fail to spend time together with them.

I know their complaint is genuine. But I feel helpless.

“Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss,
you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living
is the one you are living.
When you can see that,
you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid,
and doors will open
where you didn’t know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else”  Joseph Campbell

I am happy to be in the company of other great photographers there in the WordPress

Aurora

“Amid the majesty of night, What splendid vision strikes my eyes, In glory bursting on the sight, Forth from the northern skies?” Stephen Greenleaf Bulfinch

Those of you who are lucky to watch the Aurora will never forget the experience.

You can’t describe your thoughts as you watch Mother Nature’s soul-stirring phenomenon.

This experience is enchanting and you feel you are in Heaven, joining the Cosmic Dance of Nature’s magnificent spectacle.

How true the following quote!

“You don’t know what you’re going to get into when you follow your bliss” James Hillman 

Did any of you experience Northern Lights?

if so what was your feeling at that moment?

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Life and balls

“Imagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls. The balls are called work, family, health, friends, and integrity. And you’re keeping all of them in the air. But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls…are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered”  James Patterson
