The Christmas Maze, Myths, and Message [Video]



Christmas can be a confusing season. The most commercial of holidays is also supposed to be one of the most sacred of days.

Moreover, the expression of the sacredness of the day is constantly opposed by those who don’t believe in sacredness at all. And what is for many the most joyful of times for others fuels deep depression and loneliness.

The Christmas season is confusing because it is not simply one kind of season. It has at least three manifestations; a maze, a myth, and a message.

The Christmas Maze

ChristmasThis is the hustle and bustle of the social and economic pressures surrounding Christmas. Every family that celebrates the day knows the Christmas maze well.

Moreover, this maze is the greatest concern of those for whom Christmas is not a religious day. In their case, it is an opportunity for family, gifts, and parties.

It is an opening to…

10 Do’s And Don’ts Of Mental Health



On the tenth day of blogmas, I am sharing a list of what and what not to do when you hit the low. When dealing with bad mental health days, it becomes extra important to keep us occupied in the right direction.

What to do?

  1. Manicure: Either get a manicure done or give yourself a manicure, who doesn’t like pretty nails?
  2. Draw/ paint: Art is the best therapy, there is nothing more relaxing than colours. You can also buy the adult colouring books, they are super fun and relaxing.
  3. Write:If art is too challenging for you, you can always try the brain dump method where you write every thought of yours on a piece of paper. You will feel very light and calm after it, I promise.
  4. Watch a movie: Nothing is better than getting lost in the beautiful cinematography and rooting for your favourite characters.
  5. Read a book:

Best Film of 2018 – #20-11

No More Workhorse

Best Film of 2018 – #20-11

Here are some of the films we loved this year.

20. Glory – “It is a film that will frustrate you, make you feel deeply connected to the characters, and keep you at the edge of your seat.”

19. A Fantastic Woman – “this is an intelligent film and it is enlightening to view any society from the point of view of an outsider. Marina is just that – an outsider.”

18. 120 BPM (Beats Per Minute) – “Campillo has created a film of great strength which gives an insight into the personal and public way gay individuals responded to a disease which upended their lives and those of their friends.”

17. Custody (Jusqu’à la garde) – “Legrand, skilfully, leaves his audience uncertain at the start of the film as to who is the villain of the piece.”

16. Marlina The Murderer in Four…

Love is scarce- Really ?

Philosophy through Photography

The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we

never give enough of is love.

Henry Miller

Why this happens ?

We all  think that, Love means romance.But it is not so.

There are 7 types of love.

  1. Storge- Familial love
  2. Phila-friendship ( shared goodwill)
  3. Eros-Sexual or passionate love
  4. Agape-Universal love ( unconditional love)
  5. Ludus-Playful or uncommitted love
  6. Pragma- Long term love ( married people)
  7. Philautia-self love ( healthy or unhealthy)

( source, Quora)

My discussion is limited to the married couple.

Think for a second.

Can you tell  the difference between ‘school and life‘ ?

How to Persevere (And Get Ahead!) When the Going Gets Tough


I have been discouraged and defeated many times in my life. I have had life deliver blows that have literally knocked me to the ground. The feelings of hopelessness and despair have consumed my life for many months. I wondered if I would ever survive these catastrophic events or if I would ever live a life where I felt happy and safe.

The good news is that slowly over time, my life got better and I got stronger. When I look back on my life I now realize that these “bad life events”, though painful at the time, were the catalysts for me to change my life.

“People who soar are those who refuse to sit back, sigh and wish things would change. They neither complain of their lot nor passively dream of some distant ship coming in. Rather, they visualize in their minds that they are not quitters they…

Holy Humour

J-M's History Corner

In the year 2008, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in the

United States , and said, ‘Once again, the earth has become wicked,

and I see the end of all flesh before me.

Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few

good humans’

He gave Noah the blueprints, saying, ‘You have 6 months to build the

Ark before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights.’

Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard

– but no Ark.

‘Noah!’ He roared, ‘I’m about to start the rain! Where is the Ark ?’

‘Forgive me, Lord,’ begged Noah, ‘but things have changed. I needed a

building permit. I’ve been arguing with the inspector about the need

for a sprinkler system. My neighbors claim that I’ve violated the

neighborhood zoning laws by…

Creating Ambiance With Gardens

I love my garden

green grassy field landscape photography Photo by on

During his 40-year career as a garden writer and photographer, Derek Fell has designed numerous garden spaces, many involving his wife Carolyn. The best example of their work can be seen at their home, historic Cedaridge Farm, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. There, they have designed more than twenty theme areas, including shade gardens, sunny perennial borders, tapestry gardens involving trees and shrubs, a cottage garden, herb garden, cutting garden and an ambitious water garden.

Derek worked as a consultant on garden design to the White House during the Gerald Ford Administration. Derek designed Ford’s ‘Win’ garden, following his ‘Win Speech’, advising the nation ten ways to fight inflation.

Many garden designs by Derek Fell have been implemented without inspecting the site. The great late architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed beautiful homes for his clients, entirely from photographs without the need for a site inspection.

The Grey Fox: Legendary train robber and prison escapee Bill Miner

Library and Archives Canada Blog

By Caitlin Webster

Nicknamed “The Grey Fox” and “The Gentleman Bandit,” Bill Miner was a legendary criminal on both sides of the Canada–U.S. border. Although he committed dozens of robberies and escaped from multiple prisons, many saw him as a generous folk hero who targeted exploitative corporations only. Library and Archives Canada holds many documents, publications, sound and video recordings, and other materials relating to Miner, and hundreds of these documents are now available on our website as a Co-Lab crowdsourcing challenge.

Newspaper page showing text, an illustration of two armed men on horseback approaching a train, a portrait of the author, and photographs of Bill Miner, Shorty Dunn and Lewis Colquhoun. Article in The Province newspaper on January 18, 1958: “Bill Miner – last of the train robbers” (e011201062-019-v8)

Born Ezra Allan Miner on December 27, 1846, Miner began his criminal career as a teenager, stealing horses and robbing merchants in northern California. He later moved on to burglarizing homes and robbing stagecoaches in California and Colorado, where he and his accomplices often took away thousands of dollars…

I decided to do a 30 day challenge of juicing celery, at first it was weird just drinking celery. A couple years ago I could not see myself eating or drinking celery. It just did not look good to me but now I love this veggie. I sauté it, juice it or eat it raw with some good hummus. Celery is the most underestimated vegetable because it looks so unattractive but it’s full of vitamins and nutrients.  From drinking celery, I have experienced less bloating and I feel lighter…

I usually go to bed as a positive thinker


Now, I am going to bed;
And how am I going to bed?
I am going to bed
As a positive thinker;
I go to bed with
A positive mental attitude;
I go to bed happy;
I go to bed laughing;
I go to bed satisfied;
I go to bed thankful to God.
I go to bed as a winner.
I go to bed knowing
I have won for today.
Please, don’t go to bed
As a loser;
Don’t go to bed
Feeling defeated;
If things did not work,
Give yourself a big smile,
And say
“I am happy and proud
I did my best
Tomorrow is another day.”
Tomorrow will beat today.
And I will go to bed
Feeling beyond the ordinary;
Feeling great.

When a luxe lingerie brand starts making athleisure, here’s what the sensual product looks like

City Women & co

December 18, 2018 at 12:41PM

Athleisure is no longer a niche within the retail market. Rather, its an omnipresent, ubiquitous sector that you?re as likely to find evidence of at Nike as you are at Gucci or Asos. Some would even say it?s high fashion?s next frontier. And now, it?s coming for your nether regions (well, kind of): Luxury lingerie brand Kiki de Montparnasse is now expanding into athleisure and activewear.

The collection, which debuted yesterday, WWD reports, is currently four items strong: leggings, shorts, a workout bralette, and a sports bra crop top. Each of the garments appear exactly as you?d expect (think: if lacy, silky lingerie underwent some kind of activewear transformation). The four pieces are only available in black, and all feature lace details for a general aesthetic that points to Kiki de Montparnasse?s signature style of sensuality. So basically, if you?re looking for the…
