But how would you feel if you chanced upon a website that offered you photos – not just any photo – but awesome, high-res photos for free and those that you could publish right away without the hassles of looking for the license clause? Read the rest of this entry

readingReading – the very word helps me relax every time I think about it. The lovely feeling I get of holding a book in one hand and a coffee mug in the other cannot be explained in words. You should experience it to believe it.

There can be nothing as relaxing as reading a book especially when I am feeling low and totally drained of energy. Reading a good book can energize you to no end. I have experienced this many times in the past.

deep breathingWe may have been born into loving families and we may be very well-educated but it is sad that very few human beings realize the fact that life is very short indeed and while we are in this world, we must make the most of it. We have been created for a definite purpose in this world.

Each one is born with different ethnicities and in different economic conditions. Despite the differences in colour, race and country, people live in harmony in most parts of the world. Unfortunately this has not been possible in certain disputed regions.
