Driving into the Sunset

Moments ago before I started writing this post, I was sitting downstairs enjoying one of those infamous smoke breaks you may have heard of by now.

Under pressure, I also wanted to clear my head for a bit. But, fortunately, the weather seems to be doing its part in lifting me out of my moments of self-doubt and concerns related to work and uncertain outcomes which are not within me to control right now. Where I am right now, its spring. Foul moods or not, it’s also a beautiful and glorious day.


This may turn out to be a bit of a controversial post to write. I do not know yet how my musings will guide me this time around. It stems from some disagreement I have from Dale Carnegie’s famous and enduring book How to Win Friends and Influence People. It will be more of a subjective post, I’m afraid. You can write in the Comments field provided, whether objectively or subjectively, what you think of this post. Please always bear in mind, as per the nature of this entire blog, personal thoughts and musings are being shared spontaneously as and when they occur.

For those of you still struggling to get your feet off the ground where blogging is concerned, I hope that this post will prove to be a source of inspiration and one of those tales which are instructive in encouraging you to never lose hope and to never give up. Personal blogging is a journey of life. So, even while I’m writing up this post, I’m feeding myself with inspiration, encouragement and motivation. It’s a necessary lesson in life to ‘never, ever, ever give up’ as the famous saying goes.

For a health-conscious girl like me, I have one terrible and filthy habit that I’ve not managed to kick yet. I feel awfully ashamed about it and today I think I’m making a bit of personal blogging history. Because while I may have expressed myself openly and in conversation with others about this dangerous and unhealthy habit, I’ve never actually sat down and penned my thoughts on smoking. The dangers are well-known, most of you, I take it, don’t smoke. If you do, make another effort to give up one of the worst habits known to humankind. In my attempt to be as original as possible with my posts, I’ll be sharing my personal thoughts on smoking and, perhaps, why I haven’t managed to kick the habit yet.

Travel around the world

Let’s call this a surreptitious tour of the world to places and cities that I’ve been to and would love to tour or spend time living in some day. Fortunately, I think I’ve developed a nice structure for this post today. I don’t want my mind to wander too far, so what I’ve decided to do is divide this mini-travel guide into all the continents of the world, including also major sub-continents and large islands which, strictly speaking, could very well be perceived to be an independent land-mass not having to rely on any of the world’s known and major continents.
