“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn't exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New International Version)
The biggest key to a man's waking up to the fact that you're "the one for him" - that you fulfill all his needs just by BEING YOU - is your ability to connect with a man through his heart. And the key to connecting with a man's heart is operating day-to-day, moment-by-moment from YOUR heart.
This is my final article about "Finding Perfect Match". I summarized the "10 Ways to Know if The Relationship is Right". (source: http://twinkythots.wordpress.com/2006/06/22/10-ways-to-know-if-the-relationship-is-right/)
- You feel good about yourself and your world.- A good relationship makes you feel great. It should fill in your “gaps” and make you feel whole.
- You look forward to spending time together.- If your relationship is “right”, you’ll enjoy spending quality time together – even when it’s quiet.
- You respect your partner, and “talk him or her up.” - There’s no reason you have to agree with everything your partner says or thinks either. However, you should RESPECT them for it – right or wrong.
- You are really interested in what he or she thinks. - Along with respect, you’ll find that you are interested in your partner’s thoughts on different things.
- You are aware of, but ignore their quirks.
- Problems don’t make you think about breaking up. - People that have good, solid relationships see disagreements as a chance to learn more about their lover, and to get closer.
- You aren't scared about losing him or her. - Once you start investing your feelings in a relationship you risk being hurt. However, if you dwell on the possibility of being hurt, you can’t really enjoy the relationship.
- You’re together “just because.” - If you’re together just because you both want to be, you've got a good reason to stay together.
- You appreciate other attractive people, but aren’t interested in them.
- You are in love.
I am very grateful with the help of my guests for being a part of this final episode of my article. Without them, I won't be able to finish my write-up.

Not all couples are blessed with a child. Some parents adopt kids for them to be fruitful in terms of parenthood. This is another article of mine and the experienced I felt capturing the moment of these kids.
I am so thankful with my guests, despite the warm weather, they still managed to smile, laugh and crack jokes during the session.
This poem I originally created and photos taken from different Island Resort in Maldives.
The feeling of satisfaction when I carry you
The sound of your laughter melts my heart.
I remember the time, you came into my world,
Mixed emotion filled every corner of the room.
Feeling proud of myself,
The essence of being a woman.
The pain I've been through, disappeared!
Upon hearing your very first cry.
Tears running down my cheek,
As you lay down on my chest.
A promise that binds us together, my child.
I hold you tight through ups and downs.
Soon these arms will be old and tired,
And no longer be with you, when my time comes.
Don't forget the arms that molded you,
of what you are now.

My Points of View: Living in Paradise, Living a Dream: Crystal clear, vast area of bodies of water, rich in colorful coral reefs and sea creatures. Mixed nationalities come to visit Maldives ...
Crystal clear, vast area of bodies of water, rich in colorful coral reefs and sea creatures. Mixed nationalities come to visit Maldives for their holiday trip.
Experience diving in a deep blue water, chanting with the family of Whales, taking a glimpse of the dolphins, having an eye to eye contact with the turtles, and indulging with other water sports activities.
Almost 14 months working in different Island Resorts in Maldives, is like living in a paradise. Away from noise and air pollution, staying in a calm cozy place will really make you relax and forget all your problems.
Embracing the breeze, touching the pristine white sand, walking near the shore, and the wind blowing my hair, is like a scene in the movie.
I was high school, when I came to know about Maldives, studying map of Asia and geographic location of the different countries. I was amazed about the picture displayed on a magazine telling a short caption about Maldives and other top tourist's destination in the world.
Maldives is one of the places I want to visit. Since I started schooling, I really want to travel and mingle with other people. My Mom usually says, I am like a reporter. I think, this is my natural way of reaching out to other people. Once I pop a question, the conversation follows. I am learning from other people as well, no matter the age gap is.
Apparently, I am enjoying my stay here (sometimes I get bored). I spend my time productively indulging myself in other activities at the resort, and doing my own blog during my leisure time.
To be away from home, is really difficult to handle. No one will comfort you, especially when you were down, when you got sick, when everyone despises you, worst is when someone try to pull you down because of envy and crab mentality. People come and go. We may meet true friends and at the same time false one.
There is no perfect company to work with, that is how I picture it. The company will be a perfect place to be, if only there is teamwork, fair treatment among associates, give and take relationship between employee and employer.
I do believe that employee is the backbone of the company. What will be the role of the employer and the status of the company if all the staffs are not working well?
We all know how influence “Money” is. You can buy everything in the world, except happiness and good reputation.
I do value my work, because this is my bread and butter.
Despite all the negative things I experienced working in a company here in Maldives, I still see a light of positiveness.

Time to say goodbye,
Vanish this bizarre feeling,
Accepting my defeat
Ready to accept the real thing.
My journey for the next race.
Enough of this illusion,
Shaking my head, stop this imagination.
Tired of believing the unreal circumstances,
Taking the risk, hardly to achieve.
As I look up unto the sky,
Rainbow appears at the northeast side.
Having peace of mind,
Out from stressful life.
Thankful for this awakening,Replenishing a weary soul.

You can make your life happier. It is a matter of choice. It is your attitude that makes you feel happy or unhappy. Recently, I was on vacation, a bonding moment with my loved-ones and friends.
I can't explain the feeling of coming back home after 3 years away from home (due to work).
My guests from France, Russia, China, Japan, India, and Spain.
