Lessons in cartoons Teens need to know

I watched my favourite all time childhood show, Barney & Friends. I love the scene at the end where they sing the song but that’s not why I’m writing.

How many times have your friend/s said you have abandoned them? Told you they miss you?

That many times huh? I know, it has happened to me. Between my studies and doing extramural activities it meant that I had less time to socialise, which left some of my friends from my old school feeling neglected but that wasn’t intentional. It just happened that time wasn’t on my side…. Some of us, unfortunately, still need to work on our time management skills.

Back to the story, (Some of the characters in the show I forgot their names so I’m improvising. Forgive me).

Timmy and Tom were best friends, spent most of their sunny afternoons together until one day new people moved in next door so that meant there were  new children to play with. Timmy and Tom met with with the child that was new in town, his name was Chris. After spending some time together they realised that Chris had more things in common with Timmy than Tom which ultimately meant that Chris and Timmy were to spend more time together.

With the new found friendship, Tom felt very lonely and started resenting Timmy for preferring to spend time with Chris than him. That’s when Barney came and explained that even though Timmy spent time with Chris that didn’t mean he  valued their friendship any less.

Moral : Don’t go ballistic because your friends don’t spend as much time with you as they did whilst you were all in the same school. Times change, memory fades but friendship is forever.

I love you. You love me. We’re a happy family with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you. Wont you say you love me too.

Online Friends.

The term Mutual Friends comes to mind when people speak of social media. I have met a variety of people online and they became my close friends. Some I never really met.

I have people I’ve spoken to for more than eight years and never met, some less than that but hey we close like that. Some people encourage you throughout as you share moments of your life. Whether sad or sunny days, all things turn up well.

This is in reference to one particular person that is to do many great things for me and I’m thankful for him. When the time is alright, I will let you know. Things are closely approaching, just beyond the horizon and after the second star, you will see the place that only I can describe…


New beginnings,Wonderful horizons.

Only you can change yourself. External influences many play a role but it is your responsibility to reinvent yourself.

Look at me, I went from adoring the stars to loving people (health sciences) & ending up having the greatest passion to literature. You have endless possibilities, that’s why an artist can sing, dance, act & become business people.

The human brain is powerful, its capabilities are limited by FEAR. Human emotions tend to cloud things and its your fault if you try to limit yourself.

Find the new you or rather let me say, find yourself. Your true self and you will discover very many things. Have new beginnings and discover wonderful horizons.
