To Eat or Not to Eat

I often times don't let what other people say get to me but these days I have seen a lot of bullying and ganging up on skinny people. While I agree that people should not starve themselves just to achieve a certain weight, people should also be sensitive to skinny people. We have feelings too and I for one did ask to be like this.

All my life I have been skinny. I've tried supplements, workouts, pigging out and even oriental ways of gaining weight but none worked. I would gain a couple of pounds then lose them eventually when stressed or sleep deprived.

My point though is, a lot of people whine because they are fat and that life would be easier if they lose weight when they have not even tried hearing or reading the lines "anorexic", "feed her", "throw food at her" yada yada...

We all have different metabolism and people should know that first before ridiculing someone because of their body frame. Think it is hard when people criticize you for being fat? Try being crucified for being thin.

Digesting Your Reads

Here is my dog's take on the term "Reader's Digest".
She's a pup and munching on stuff is nothing but natural to her especially when it's my favorite books!

Notice the one on the middle? It's about cat spells, I guess she hates em. :)

My Romance with Happiness

 I have been in constant pursuit of happiness that it has become a love-hate relationship with myself. I love myself when I am happy and I hate myself to the core when I am not.

Happiness for me is defined as that warm feeling inside me. It can be a twinge of that feeling that comes as a smile, or it can be an outburst of loud laugh and sometimes tears.

I am most of the time happy. Yet, there are days when I feel so depressed that I don't feel like moving and want to be just over and done with the day.

I am blessed. In so many ways, I know.
I have come to acknowledge that happiness is not a permanent thing.
Some days you soak in it, some days, no matter how you crave for it, you just can't find it.
Maybe, that's the way it should be.
