Quote--Privilege not Right




Let's never forget the privileges God gives us every single day and moment that we might consider ordinary and instead keep waiting for something big!!  And let's also credit ourselves for the efforts we make toward accepting the privileges and dealing with their challenges, if any!

Quote--Just Try To Be




Life is not easy, life is not simple.  Its complicated with numerous ups and downs.  Sometimes we smile and, sometimes, we cry.  Through all that, its important to try to "be"... not just only enjoy the moment, which is good, however, to know oneself, understand oneself and what is going on in our life.

Haiku: Open mind and see





In just one click, life's
diversities call us, look,
open mind, see, grasp

Restaurant, plants, lights, liquor, parking and hotel signs, bicycle-cab- other cars-cycles reflected in the rear view mirror of the car, flags, building, pavement, road…..

@empiresteakhouse  your restaurant window with the lights and liquor bottles inspired me to take this shot and then saw the diversities reflected in the shot!  Hope to visit your restaurant one day!

#pride




It’s another sad, sad day in human collective life and history and will remain in our collective memories. Killing of almost 50 and injuring another 50 or more at Pulse, a gay club in Orlando, Florida once again makes it immediately imperative that in D&I conversations the need is to focus more on inclusion.  Are we a diverse country with diverse individuals residing here? Yes, and becoming more so each day.  Are we an inclusive country? Not always. We try. And this “trying” falls through the cracks when we have individuals who harbor prejudice and hate against those who are different from them, to an extent that they kill them. Micro or macro triggers, be it due to race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, physical attributes, marital status, children, education, socio-economic class, and veteran status among other myriad reasons that people employ to distinguish themselves from others, can lead as seen so many times, to the harboring of unconscious bias which turns into prejudice and then hate, and finally into violence.  And in the senseless violence that follows, the innocents lost do not even know the perpetrators or vice versa…have no personal or direct connection with them…strangers…and yet, they became the sad target of someone’s hate. 

Therefore, focusing on self-reflection, self-change, getting to know those who are different is what D&I training needs to focus upon. That might lead to an environment of tolerance and inclusion wherein those harboring hate might change their opinion and not end up killing others they don’t know, or know and don’t understand or appreciate. Be who you are and let others be who they are.  What difference does it make to you how different others are in any way, as long as they are not troubling you? Live and let live. Peace.

Quote--Some memories stay with us




#quote #quoteoninstagram #memories #hugs #refusetoleave
Sometimes, some memories just don't go away...good and bad ones...they linger with us as fresh as the time they were real...and sometimes these bring tears and sometimes, smiles.  For our own sake, we need to keep the good memories with us and let the bad ones leave us...

Haiku--Don't place me on a pedestal!




People have to let othres be, especially in the closest of relationships. Sometimes, some people will place you on a pedestal, and give you too much importance because they need you, not necessarily love you in a healthy normal relationship.  We need to avoid being in such relationships.

Poem--Keep Ego Down



“My ego sometimes takes a road unknown leading me into a high speed chase and when I track it down, it apologizes profusely….I am just glad it still has  a heart…”

One has to constantly keep one’s ego down or it will take us truly down! Especially, in routine, day to day issues, in our interactions with those that are closet to us...our family and friends…
