Quote Of The Day
What’s Up With Me?
For those of you that are wondering what my sisters situation with the crows is, I have a little update. There is a hawk that almost permanently sits outside our window when my sister is around. I told her about it and she thought I was just messing with her but then she looked and has been seeing it herself too. So yeah, something is definitely going to be going down with her soon.
As for me, I haven’t been sleeping too well for the last few days. It’s nothing new for me. I don’t have very good sleeping habits and I have a little bit of insomnia. So, hopefully today I’ll be able to go to bed early and get a good nights sleep.
What else is going on with me? Honestly, not that much has been going on with me right now. And I wish I had more exciting news to share with all of you but some weeks are just anticlimactic. And that’s fine. In fact, the older I get the more I prefer that over drama. I’m at that place in my life where I look forward to peace much more than anything else.

A beautiful quote bringing home the idea of being a good listener to seek knowledge and wisdom. That is why God has gifted us with two ears and only one tongue. It means we should at least listen twice the amount we speak.
Take care of insomnia as this can have serious health consequences if left untreated. There is no substitute for a proper sleep.
Thanks so much. Yes, we should always listen more than we speak.
You’re right especially because multiple relatives have issues with insomnia so it may be something genetic.
You are always welcome.
If insomnia runs in the genes, then you need to be extra careful with your sleep patterns. Stay blessed Pooja.
love the quote!!!!!! Love listening unless it’s a bunch of complaining. Uh oh what’s the black crow all about!!!!
Thank you so much! My sister shooed away a crow and it’s now stalking her 😅
Oh no!!!! LOL
I love that quote. Listening is definitely an important quality to cultivate. I hope you get some good sleep. I suffer with insomnia, too. It seems to feed on itself.
Thank you. Yes, insomnia is exhausting but I think I also need to take my vitamin D shot because that also effects my sleep.
Sleeping is important, listening is also very important. I am a good listener or at least I am trying to be one. If you listen to yourself well enough you’ll be able to sleep. If you listen to others well enough, they’ll be able to sleep. Have a nice week!
True, listening cures so much. Have a nice week too!
Sometimes nothing exciting is good.
Very true, sometimes peace and quiet is all we need.
A good listener, well, I always try to be one.
Thanks so much and that’s great!
I wonder if the hawk is searching for his lover from past life 😛
You never know 🤷🏻♂️
Try to improve your sleeping habits dear.
Throw away phone 2 hours before bed. Stop worrying about SEO, stop being Batman.
Do some stretching before sleeping and make sure you sleep and wake up at the same time daily.
I feel your internal clock is disturbed 🤔
Lol you never know 😅
Haha will try my best and I usually do stretch and meditate before sleeping. I think it’s because I keep forgetting to take my vitamin D.
You sleep under the sun next time
Take care buddy
Do the needful
Hey, girl! Great quote!
Thank you so much!
Always preferred listening 🕊
That’s a great quality to have 😊

Love that quote and I absolutely understand that feeling.
Re: the quote… great one; I can’t tell you how many times it would have been good for me to follow this advice in my life! And re: the hawk, I think you need to write a book about this! Also, re: sleep… ah yes, I too had terrible “sleep hygiene” for years when I was working in a super stressful job and bringing it home. It carried on for a few years after leaving that job and it wasn’t until I focused more on meditation and fitness that I became a better sleeper again. Plus, not being on my phone late in the evening helps. Good luck with it! As for me, I’m planning on getting out and cycling this week as the temperature is finally going up to what it should be in April. I’m excited!
Lol yes, I need to write a book about this situation soon. I think my vitamin D is extremely low and I forget to take my pills for it sometimes so that affects my sleep a lot too. I’m glad the weather is improving there, hope you get a good amount of sun this spring and summer!
Thank you and good luck with the sleep.
Thanks so much.
A wise quote indeed! What’s the crow story? Hugs, C
Thanks! Basically, the short version is that my sister shooed away a crow and now that crow and a hawk is stalking her and sits outside our window.
I have learned silence from the talkative… 😋
indeed, a wise quote you’ve shared.
Hope the battle between the birds and your sister tips in her favor 😁
Take care, Pooja🤍✨
Sometimes it’s easier to learn what not to do from someone who does it lol . Thanks 😊
always a pleasure 🤍
The quote you have shared is beautiful.
I repeat the word ‘beautiful’ a lot.
Because I think ‘everything in this world is more beautiful’ than remaining boring or bad things.
So “the beauty of thoughts and thinking” can certainly change our how we pursue our life.
Last night I tried to sleep as early as possible. But I kept thinking and assuming various thoughts.
It didn’t work!
Something stops me from sleeping.
Right now, I don’t know what’s that.
“I’ll try to follow a regular sleeping routine. A
nd will avoid in taking long naps (because of summer) in day time.”
Take care of yourself! Enjoy!😁
I have the same problem, I go to bed but just toss and turn. And then I have to take a nap to combat that but that makes my sleep worse at night. It’s a bad cycle lol. Hopefully we’ll both get better sleep soon!
I don’t think the crows have read Doug Larson’s quote.
When someone says, “I’m not trying to harm your nest.” The crows don’t listen even if it’s true. Crows don’t have the wisdom to know that while hawks will eat their eggs, that humans generally prefer chicken eggs for breakfast. Crows talk a lot but have not listened much and don’t seem willing to read philosophy books. As the crow flies, too many places are too close together.
I’ve seen articles about crows in North America and how they behave. I don’t know how Kenyan crows comport themselves. They articles seem to indicate that it would sound like your sister is in a war zone between crows and hawks which might mean there’s a crow’s nest nearby. Baby cows are in a nest for 30 days when hawks like to eat them it says. The crows can fight back against hawks and any nearby human that they perceive as a threat.
Ooops typos. “The articles”. And the article name is “crows-vs-hawks” not COWS vs. hawks. (Now that would be a problem. I guess lack of sleep can turn crows into cows, and swords into plowshares (Isaiah 2:4). I hope there’s no typo in the typo correction…
I honestly have no idea what’s going on with the crows and hawks, all I know is I don’t want to be involved in it.
Ok, so the fact that those birds are all over your sister’s window, scares me to death. Hope everything will be alright.
As for the quote, I absolutely agree. Sometimes it’s hard to remain silent, and only later you realise that it was actually a wise move.
I struggle to find the inner peace, so I totally get you. Take care, and try the trick with socks during the night. I read it helps with better sleep!
She’ll be fine. I can’t believe I’m saying this but she’s been through worse lol! Thanks and I’ll try wearing socks, that may help!
I must learn to talk less!! Bad habit!!
Haha yes, sometimes listening is best!
My plans for this month is planning to travel next month. I love making lists and finding creative ways to pack bags. Obviously, my mom is very happy with this habit of mine. 😀
That sounds wonderful. Hope you have a lot of fun travelling and do share any packing tips you have.
Hey Pooja, I too have this problem of lying sleepless many a nights! but this happens when I begin to think of the problem that is at hand and when u begin your bed time with a wrong thought it kills your sleep.
Yes, that can happen! I think my issues are caused by my vitamin D deficiency. Sleep issues are one of the symptoms.
That quote is my life right now as I’m going to try to stop talking and sharing my opinion so much so people will like me.
But, I understand you with the insomnia. Mine is fueled by true nonsensical paranoia and feeling too tired or too bored (ik how it sounds 😩) to go to sleep.
And it seems like the crow brought shooters. That would be an interesting story, no?😂
Lol, definitely an interesting story. I’m documenting everything for the future 😅
I think the right people will like you either way. However, listening is a good skill to have.
Yeah, I understand that. I can’t sleep when I’m too tired as well.
as he flies
sister to that other mistah yee haw~
👀👀 The hawk is only outside when your sister is around? So you’ve checked when she’s not there and it’s gone? 👀👀
Yeah, it’s not there when I’m alone in the room only when my sister is there too lol 😅
👀👀 that’s crazy. Bet your sister’s freaking out. 🤣
Apparently they have made peace the hawk isn’t around anymore 😅
It was getting very Harry Potter. 😅 Maybe it realized she was the wrong person and is hanging outside someone else’s window. 😁
Lol I hope so 😅
A drama free life would be so nice wouldn’t it? There’s a lot we can do to trim it down but there’s always something waiting to happen. 😅
I hope you get more sleep the rest of the week! I’ve had a better than usual time sleeping this week, probably because I’ve cut down on caffeine after noon. One of those things everyone knows you should do but doesn’t do it, haha.
Honestly, it’s always one thing or another. These days all I want is peace 😅
Thanks. Yes, cutting out caffeine is a good idea especially later in the day. I think my sleep is messed up right now because I keep forgetting to take my vitamin pills. And a symptom of the deficiency is sleep issues.
I have a book on animal symbolism I find fascinating. The raven and the crow indicate a connection to a higher consciousness and a gift of insight. The crow is about finding your inner circle or soulmate. Maybe the crow and the raven are for you and not your sister 🙂 Hope you get some rest. https://a-z-animals.com/blog/raven-spirit-animal-symbolism-meaning/ https://a-z-animals.com/blog/crow-spirit-animal-symbolism-and-meaning/
That’s so fascinating. I always thought the owl was for me since it’s my spirit animal. I’m quite friendly with the crows actually, I enjoy feeding them and their company in general.
Nice quote. Listening needs patience and patience is not everyone’s cup of tea.
Thanks and yes I absolutely agree.
love the quote and the crow mystery. Maybe she thinks your sister is her mate.. lol
Thanks so much! Apparently the crow and my sister have made their peace 😅
You’re welcome… oh whew 😅
True quote. I have been studying and going to class. It is so much to learn, and the hands on experience is rewarding. I really enjoy it. Mentally exhausted though, but it’s worth it. Hope you get a good nights sleep. Thanks for sharing. The hawk is always around? That’s weird. I hope she isn’t frightened. Hope you have a great week..
That’s wonderful. Glad you’re enjoying the classes even though it’s tiring. Apparently she made peace with the birds and they’re gone now haha. Have a great week too.
I like that quote. I have been a person who does listen a lot rather than speak so I have learned a lot. As for me, I’m looking forward to starting my new job but I’m not so sure my body is. I’ve been struggling with more low back pain lately and I haven’t even gone to work yet. Hopefully my body won’t give out on me with this job.
Sorry to hear about the back pain, hope you feel better soon. Some people find relief from back pain by rubbing castor oil on the area that’s causing pain.
Castor oil? Hmm interesting. I’ll have to look that up and see why it would work. Thanks Pooja.
Sure, hope it helps if you decide to start using it.
Crows and hawks definitely cause drama!
Lol you have no idea, it got crazy for a bit!
This quote makes me smile because sometimes we feel sad, when we remember the things we should have said in a conversation.
Yet that shouldn’t be the case as a lot of learning takes place when we decide to listen.
Glad it made you smile and I agree. If you forgot to say something it may just be because you were listening intently which is a wonderful thing.
Listening is so much harder than talking. That’s for sure. I find that in order to listen well, one really needs to concentrate on what is being talked about and really have to recall all the related issues and other contingencies in order to make an intelligent comprehension and response. Listening is really work, although if it is routine stuff, one doesn’t have to put much efforts. So I feel that one has to judge first what kind of strategies one has to adopt for a listening task.
My favorite listening experience is with people with whom I have shared interests and we can bounce off each other’s sentences. I like that kind of communication more than anything else.
So true, talking is easy but listening is such a difficult skill to master.
Yes, those kind of conversations are the best because they’re positive and go somewhere. Mindless chitchat is much less satisfying.
You know I’ve sat through too many classes or meetings of monologue that I am really tired of listening to more of these. LOL.
Lol, I tend to tune out when I stop caring.
I had used to be afraid of talking before I became a saleswoman for a short period of time. It was a great training as a saleswoman. After that, I was never afraid of talking…
I used to be scared to talk as well until I went to uni and we had seminars where we had to talk each week. That was great practice and I’m much more confident now.
I love that quote. I’m very introverted so the not talking part for me is not hard. However, the listening part can be a struggle.
Yeah, I tend to tune out sometimes so I struggle with that too.
