Life…the good, the bad and the ugly with Vera

Life…the good, the bad and the ugly with Vera

By Vera’s Lounge
Although each life is peculiar, I do believe that we share certain things in common as long as life is concerned. These could be goals, ideas, principles, ideologies, etc.
These are what make life what it is.
On every episode therefore, I will be sharing some of my thoughts on different areas of life. And these are based on both my experiences and that of others, who at some points, will be joining me on the show. Please keep a date with me as we explore life and everything in between.

Frankly Speaking Vol. 1 (Gratitude)
I decided to kickstart the Frankly speaking segment with my own personal real life story! Frankly Speaking is a segment of the podcast, where people share their real life stories in order to inspire, teach or motivate someone out there, or just to let them out of their chests. Today’ episode is titled “Gratitude”. We sometimes take a lot of things fore-granted. Either because we don’t know any better, or because we are not just that thoughtful. I did at some point in my life, and I am happy to share my experience, and I hope it inspires or teaches someone. Thanks for listening.

One important attribute of successful people
A lot of factors contribute to success in life, no doubt, but I have come to understand that one of those factors, even though should be very obvious, is not and so some people do not realise how important it is to being successful. On this episode there, I talked about one very important attribute of successful people. As usual, the play drives home the point with Debby’s experience. I hope you enjoy listening and that it impacts your life positively.

Are you a Spectator?
What is life? What does it mean to you? What are we meant to be doing here? On today’s episode, I shared my thought on an issue that is very important to me, which is living a purposeful life. I have seen a lot of people who desire to do better, to have a more fulfilling and meaningful life, but are unable to achieve that. These people are not entirely unsuccessful, but they simply are not satisfied with their lives. And this can be attributed to the fact that they feel like they are just here for “the show”. These people are in different professions not because they want to, but because they need to. I am a believer that the gift of a man makes way for him. Therefore I decided to share my thoughts on how important it is for one to truly align with their calling…their talents and gift, and give themselves a chance to a fulfilling, satisfying life.

What do your friends owe you?
A good number of people are guilty of casually referring to people as “my friend”. And most times, these so called friendships end awfully. Why is that? Should you be calling that person you hang out with once in a while your friend? What is the meaning of friendship? What do those that you call your friends owe you? What do you owe them? What are your expectations in that friendship? Today, my friend, Grace joins me as we discuss friendship, what it is, what it’s not, what to expect from your friends, and what they should expect from you.
