Yesterday night was a night full of agony. I was fighting myself while sleeping, with things i wanted to do, with things I didn't do  and with things i did so far.
I woke up with a plan , I opened a notepad at 4 am in the morning, jotted it down.
The case is that  is not that I will forget these things, but i want them to be constantly haunting me so that I dont procrastinate or even worse hesitate.
And in case i failed , it will be my post of remorse ( I hope not)

of corse the list goes on, but these are my top 5.
PS : i forgot a 6th mission, which  an idea recently that i want to  attend a culinary class/ workshop  and turn part of this blog into a " culinary " appreciation or perhaps criticism ;)                       
                                               ah lets wait and see!

            Paulo ! It is Contagious!

            Well, this whole post started because of Paulo!!.
            Ah i was listening to a singer called Paulo Nutini. Perhaps none of my friends heard of him. A young singer but with a 50 year old voice!! Even more when he sings country music, his voice would sound like a yorkshire! But i was surprised while i was reading his biblioraphy that most of his songs were featured in the most watched series :  Last Request (Scrubs & One Tree Hill ), Million Faces ( Grey's Anatomy )...etc
            Check his other songs as well . They are awesome. Gotta love his voice ;)
            " Tallllll--INT"
            Talent. Talent. Talent.
             Yes, everyone got a talent, an allure that makes him/her different from others.
            Maybe am not in a position to judge who is talented and who is not . But i know  for sure that talent is everywhere around us . An average eye ignores a talent.So, we just have to search, look and enjoy it . It is a bless to have it and even more to enjoy people having it.

            Perhaps, we dont know what is our true talent, this one special gift  makes us unique.  One talent , two or even more  are just waiting for you to be discovered.

            You might be a drawer, a musician, a singer, a swimmer,  a businessman , a dancer.....you might be a comedian, an event organizer,  a politician, an adrenalin addict,  a computer geek,or  a fanatic soccer fan, a  community volunteer, a story teller, a workaholic, a  music collector, a crazy driver,

            A marathon Cheerer ,traveling across countries 

                                                                            A Wanna be clown!!

            A C
            Crazy Scientist!!

            A Cool Farmer 

            a cameraless photographer , a creative blogger, even a "post- it note " maniac, ..oh and i almost forgot a magical cook! ;)

            So like What Paulo said :Try " New Shoes" every day, 
            Try them all .....And  whatever you find is " your special" thing, enjoy it , and spread it around you.Show your apptitude .

            Inspire others because talent is contagious ! :)
