A Letter To Rich Men From A Pretty Woman

Thought Catalog

Dear Mr CEO,

It’s been years since you first replied to Miss Pretty, but your article is still circulating on social networks. This attention is warranted, of course: You made an honest analysis of her situation, of wanting a rich man for nothing more than her physical beauty.

You are clearly right that a woman’s beauty will depreciate in proportion to your income increase, should your career trajectory remain uninterrupted. Beauty, as it is currently defined in today’s world, is inextricably tied to youth. This is no secret; it’s why we have a multi-billion dollar advertising industry that insists on dressing up underage girls to look like they’re women. And we all know that metabolism slows down with age. Since skinny is pretty, most women will struggle to remain skinny — and therefore beautiful — as time and nature take their course. So we agree that a woman’s beauty is…

Kanji fail — Japanese parents shocked to learn their baby girl’s name has inappropriate meaning

What’s in a name? New parents often look for a name that they hope will embody the spirit of their child or be something that their son or daughter can wear with pride throughout their life, but even the most heartfelt monicker can prove awkward when taken out of context, and can be more funny than beautiful when heard by speakers of other languages.

For Japanese parents, the meaning of kanji characters used for a child’s name are just as important as how it sounds. Recently, however, one young couple had the name they chose for their new baby daughter rejected when they attempted to register it at their local town hall. It was probably a good thing, though, since the characters they had chosen had an altogether different, rather unpleasant, meaning that the couple were completely unaware of.

Why old Japanese women have names in katakana

SoraNews24

katakana names01

Amidst all of the controversy flaring up in Japan over “kirakira names,” the question was raised concerning a rather peculiar name trait shared by many old Japanese women. A large number of aging grandmothers have names written in katakana, the phonetic alphabet that modern Japan usually reserves for foreign words. It’s a trend attributed to the Meiji and Taisho eras (roughly spanning the years 1868 to 1926), and sure enough, it’s no coincidence.

Story of a Boy

Featured Image -- 203

There was a blind boy who hated himself just because he was blind. He hated everyone, except his loving girlfriend.

She was always there for him. He said that if he could only see the world, he would marry his girlfriend.

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to him  and then he could see everything, including his girlfriend. his girlfriend asked him, “now that you can see the world, will you marry me?”

The boy was shocked when he saw that his girlfriend was blind too, and refused to marry her. His girlfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to him saying:

“Just take care of my eyes dear.”

This is how human brain changes when the status changed. Only few remember what life was before, and who’s always been there even in the most painful situations.

Life Is A Gift

  • Today before you think of saying an unkind word–                                                                            think of someone who can’t speak.
  • Before you complain about the taste of your food–                                                                         think of someone who has nothing to eat.
  • Before you complain about your husband or wife–                                                                       think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.
  • Today before you complain about life–                                                                                      think of someone who went too early to heaven.
  • Before you complain about your children–                                                                                  think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.
  • Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep–                                think of the people who are living in the streets.
  • Before whining about the distance you drive–                                                                             think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
  • And when you are tired and complain about your job–                                                               think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
  • But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another–                                               remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.
  • And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down–                                                               put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.

Starting Anew

2015-new-years-resoltuions-featured-image
People are really busy nowadays planning on what things they should do for this year 2015. Many of those who had already taken their vacation wants to get another one and those who were unfortunately working in their companies during the holidays are hoping to have their most awaited break within this year. Humans are a-like in some ways or most of the ways, they follow a set of instructions from what we call the SOCIAL Manual where you clearly follow the steps and you can be acceptable by the society itself.

m
At a certain point.. that is the reality wherein people always try to blend in because sometimes being different is not always a good idea and it is quite lonely though.  The reason that I am writing blog is to empower, influence and inspire the readers and I to live and to start anew this year. Shake off your bad experiences and breathe in the great things to come.

We are currently living in different places on earth but we have one goal that is to be HAPPY in our lives. Being Happy is considered as one of the hardest things to find or to acquire, it is because we have different definition of Happiness. Being happy is a choice and it is individualize. The big irony is we are really hungry on the things that we think that can make us happy like a new car, house, job etc and the common denominator is, those things are material things. I can recall a quote lifted from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry  and it goes like this ““And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”  After reading this children’s book  ( Actually, a lot of people defined that book as like that but every line is quite alluring to the adult readers) I have realized one thing, a child’s mind is pure and not polluted by greed and I can openly admit that I forgot the child in me. The world became different a place to live when race divided, society confused and wealth classified us.  I know that the only thing that I constant in this world is change. THE WORLD IS NOT CHANGING but PEOPLE ARE.  We are changing the world into something that is beyond our imagination. We can make or break our own world and that comes with our happiness.

We should not forget that every little thing matters.  We should count our blessings and not complain on things we don’t have. Live happy and Live simple.

Happy New Year Everyone!
