Hello R.A. Specter, thank you for your question!

First of all, I'd like to thank you for reading the things that I write and for allowing my words to be a source of inspiration in your life. It is always an honour.

Now to tackle your question. Two ideas: "Refusing to acknowledge impermanence in reality" which translates to: "Refusing to accept change in life." And second is: "How to boost motivations into being productive" which translates to: "How to motivate people into productivity."

To your first idea above, my response would be, "Darling, please do not refuse the reality of change, because it is only through change that anything grows. Change is the premise of quantum mechanics, is at the heart of the seed which turns into a young bud, which turns into a beautiful flower or a gigantic tree! It is change that creates cities and change that makes valleys, mountains and volcanoes! It is change that mends the heart, molds the mind and etches new ways of being upon one's eyes! It is impermanence that is at the root of planets, solar systems and galaxies! It is impermanence that dictated the premise for you to be formed from the dusts of the stars! So why darling, why do you refuse change?" And to your second idea above, my answer goes like this, "The way to motivate people into productivity is by showing them glimpses into new realities that they have never seen before, or maybe have just forgotten! For example, when I was visiting Norway, I met a new friend who is also an author, a kind Norwegian lady. I took a walk with her around Drammen city and by simply seeing the world in the way that I normally see it (pointing at "magic" behind flower patches, shadows on swingsets and so on and so forth) I unexpectedly opened a door for her which she had never stepped through before! At the end of my stay in Norway, she wrote me a letter, thanking me for "making" her "see the world in a way" that she had "never seen it before." And it is then when I realized that we do not bless people by trying to bless them; but we bless people by striving to reach for the light, ourselves. By allowing ourselves to be who we are, to see the magic that we want to see, we are being beacons for onlookers and it doesn't take more than a minute to light up one's world, plant a seed, smile in an everlasting way that another person can never forget. And that, dear, is how we motivate people. By becoming and being, ourselves."

I hope that my answer has been helpful. :-)

Hello, Raheel! Thank you for your question!

Well, that's a very "vast" sort of question to answer. I guess the only answer I have is that I wish to one day create perfumes of my own (with my own nose and choosing my own ingredients) and I wish to live near a weekend market one day so I can buy berries whenever I want! :-)

I hope this answer helps! And have a wonderful day!

I think that the concept of "womanizer" is getting a little old these days. Back in the day, women used to sit at home and sob themselves to sleep while their husbands or boyfriends were out "womanizing." Today though, women won't hesitate to go for the best option that comes their way and will kick a womanizer to the curb, along with love and everything! Today is a good day to be woman. Now we choose whom we love.C. JoyBell C.
C. C. shared a quote
You'll come to learn that many times, the people you have problems with are not really the people you have problems with; but in actuality, the problems lie in the premises of everybody else in between you, in their suggestive glances, in their implications and tone of voice, in their provocations and less-than-noble intent. Again, it comes down to shutting out the noise that isn't supposed to be there and listening to your inner silence.C. JoyBell C.

“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won't mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever.... connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
C. JoyBell C.

“If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.”
C. JoyBell C.

“We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don't even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It's time to put an end to this. It's time for us to let ourselves be loved.”

“I am a flawed person. A brook with many stones, a clear blue sky with many blackbirds. I have many shortcomings. A rainbow that’s not long enough, a starry night with clouds. But I can only be thankful to the God who loves me just this way, and I can only be grateful to the people in my life who accept the clear blue sky with many blackbirds and who are patient with the rainbow that isn’t long enough. And because of this, I am taught love, because of this I love my God, and I love these people.”
C. JoyBell C.

“I'm not in search of sanctity, sacredness, purity; these things are found after this life, not in this life; but in this life I search to be completely human: to feel, to give, to take, to laugh, to get lost, to be found, to dance, to love and to lust, to be so human.”
C. JoyBell C.

“There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.”
C. JoyBell C.

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”
C. JoyBell C.

“If I am to be fallen into love, I will. And if as a result I will appear to be stupid, disillusioned, and of poor judgment, I will. And I would be damned if I cared what other people think. For I would rather be thought of as all of these things, than not love. If in loving, I become the naked woman on the horse, I will ride that horse with my head held high. This is my spirit. I am unbreakable.”
