You were born in a first class hospital, I was delivered at home, we both survived.
You went to a private primary school and I went to a public school, we both ended in the same high school.
You woke up from the bed and I woke from the floor, we both had a peaceful night rest.
Your outfits are all expensive, mine are all simple and cheap, we both still cover our nakedness.
You ate fried rice and roasted chicken, I ate local made food but we both still ate to our satisfaction.
You ride on Lexus jeep, Range Rover, G Wagon, Hummer Jeep and I use public transport but we still got to our various destination.
You may be reading this post from your Sony xperia, BB Z10, Q10, Samsung Galaxy 6edge, IPhone6+ and I typed it with my Touch one broken screen, we still see the message.
Lifestyle is not a competition and there are different ways to get a lot of things done, different lanes all leading to the same destination. Just because your neighbour is doing things faster does not mean you are failing.
Happiness doesn't come from having everything, but making the best out of what you have, it's all about how you see yourself.
Happiness is not having what you like. Happiness is liking what you have and being content.
Wishing you all a wonderful day, week and year ahead.

INGROWN HAIRS. WHAT ARE THEY AND IS THERE IS SOLUTION?
Strange bumps have sprung up on your face. They're not exactly pimples. They're not hives, either. Could they be ingrown hairs?
Ingrown hairs are hairs that have curled around and grown back into your skin instead of rising up from it.
Sometimes, dead skin can clog up a hair follicle. That forces the hair inside it to grow sideways under the skin, rather than upward and outward. Sometimes, cutting naturally curly hair too closely will result in the sharpened end of the hair piercing the skin, causing an ingrown hair.
Ingrown hairs aren't serious. But they can be irritating and embarrassing.
Hairaway Canada offers an effective solution for this problem encountered by both women ( most often in their bikini areas) and men ( often on their faces).
What is a Linea Nigra?
The linea nigra is that vertical line on your belly, a pregnancy trademark that shows up on moms-to-be of all stripes.
Hairy belly in pregnancy?
It's a common body change - and will usually disappear. HairAway Canada explains why it happens and mums share their stories:
Your body has a great deal to cope with during pregnancy so naturally there are some changes that may take you by surprise - including a hairy belly or the appearance of a dark vertical line on your stomach. But there is no need to be alarmed.
Mum-of-two and women's health expert, Dr Catherine Hood (who's also an advisor for Dentinox) answers your hairy belly and linea nigra questions:
Why do some women get a hairy belly when they are pregnant?
In short, this changes in the body is due to hormones. Hairs on our body are usually in one of two phases; either growing and then falling out, or resting. At any time about 90% of our hair is growing and only 10% resting. During pregnancy, however, increased hormone levels push more hairs into the resting phase. This means fewer hairs are falling out and so you appear to have thicker hair. This excess hair is usually welcome on a woman's head but it can be more alarming when there appears to be an increase in the hairs on the body too.
You may also see a dark line appear on your bump, which is called the linea nigra. This is caused by a hormone produced by your growing placentam, which stimulates melanocytes in the skin to produce extra pigment. This darkens the nipples and can result in the line appearing in the midline down the pregnant abdomen.
Can you remove/bleach the hair? If so, what is the safest way?
After pregnancy the excess body hair will tend to all fall out, usually within six months. Waiting for this to happen is probably the easiest option but if you're very distressed at the appearance of body hair then you can have it removed. Waxing, shaving and plucking hairs is all safe in pregnancy (if painful). You can bleach the hairs but because this involves using chemicals then you may wish to avoid this option whilst pregnant. It's also safe to use medical laser removal techniques such as those provided by #HairawayCanada. This is a way to permanently remove excess hairs.
Real mums say
Well you've heard the expert advice but our Babyexpert forums have been abuzz with hairy belly and dark line tales. Here are some of our readers top tips:
"I pluck out the big ones (mine are thick and dark!), but leave the fuzzy ones! I figure the midwife has definitely seen worse things!" Br2B
"Don't belive the myth a hairy belly means it's a boy. Most pregnant women get hairy bellys so it doesn't depend on whether it's a boy or girl. I had one boy and got hairy belly and now I'm pregnant with a boy again and got hairy belly" Leanne859
"Hairy belly too! My hair is quite fair so was a little shocked to see darker hair growing on my bump. Convinced it's a sign I'm having a boy!!" pumbacat
