This was back in 2010, and then I tried a second time and same result, just like in person. It happens to a bunch of people. Supposedly their matching system is pretty comprehensive, but I wonder how well it is for people that are able to use it.

Psychologists Thoughts I

Psychologists Thoughts I
By Rajinder B.

I found this article interesting.

https://ohamy57.wordpress.com/2015/02/14/psychologist-not-always-right/

Some valid points, no one is perfect, including myself, but I like the general idea. Sometimes I find some try really hard to fit people into their DSM-5 category, at any length, bully, making people even more miserable than usual. Especially using long drawn out scenarios, forcing someone to fit their criteria, just to be right, to help I doubt, or maybe cause of a research grant.

Some really good views!

Mary Barra’s and Girls who code initiative in the engineering field

I’m glad to see this initiative on Mary’s part with integrated more female workers into General Motors (GM). I’m actually very impressed, if you can read the full articles, lot of things I didn’t know that she was doing within GM, integrating more female engineers, pregnancy stages, going back into the workforce. It’s good to see leaders of companies setting good examples.

Even the statistics in the articles is good to know.
Also its mentioned that now about half are women in GM’s board of directors, which is good reminds me of Justin Trudeau’s cabinet.

Watching this video is very informative too on pursuing tech careers.

Thanks,
raj

Patrick J. Adams and Troian Bellisario Fortday

The Pretty Little Liars star, Troian Bellisario as Spencer Hastings, got married recently and they had this thing about Fortday, best explained by her, really nice story.

8 years ago we were two friends who has shared very little time together. We were tired and overworked and just wanted to have some peace and quiet. So he invited me over to his apartment where he had built us a pillow fort. He stapled sheets and Christmas lights to the ceiling. We shut the door to the world outside. We didn't answer our phones. And over pancakes and movies. Long late night conversations and sleep. we got to know each other a little better. That was the first "Fort Day". Each year after that our fort got a little bigger until 3 years ago our fort was a brand new home. Our first that we bought together. And in the still and the quiet of that "fort day" he asked me to marry him. Well this year it wasn't about peace and quiet. Two days ago we decided to make the biggest fort we could dream of and we asked all our friends and family to come in it. Tents and talent shows. Food trucks and fires. Kids screamed "I Iove fort day!" before jumping into the pool. I can't believe something small between friends could be accepted and embraced by so many people that mean so much to us. And what that said To me was that any of the tough times we've had making 8 years of long distance work was worth it. The pining. The missing. The quiet nights alone believing that it would be worth it. We were right to believe in us. And not only did we believe @halfadams but everyone around us did too. #fortday2016 (thank you to the amazing @dreamsequences for this awesome photo)

Female CEOs

I was asked randomly the other day for female business women, CEOs, etc… only a few came to mind Sheryl Sandberg Arlene Dickinson , Marissa Mayer of Yahoo, Heather Reisman of Indigo, and Mary Barra of General Motors. In general, I don’t know that many CEOs, Top management, something I have to think about.

The same person also told that the CEO of Pepsi, Indra Nooyi.

I woudn’t have thought much of looking this up, but then I was also reminded of another

Sophia Amorusa  of Girlboss.com

After a while I figure to do a search and came across others

I was really expecting more female percentages, as in more balanced numbers.

Thank you

Soulmates?

I really believe in the whole soulmates. And sometimes things will come up, a recent event happened and I didn’t even expect it and it played out before me.

I would read things up online and its interesting to see how other people’s experiences are, some bad, some good. I’m sharing this also, cause I go online and read up other people’s experience, so it’s nice to share some things sometimes.

https://exemplore.com/dreams/Dreams-and-Deja-Vu-Dreams-Really-Do-Come-True

There was a person that I really thought at that time that she was the one, see the piece, parts of it came true after, and when it happened it really shocked me
https://hitnf.wordpress.com/2015/02/01/dreams/

I missed out some details. Sometimes I think no one believed me about it, and they probably still do not. The more it makes sense now, being left out too long.

http://ascendedrelationships.com/12-signs-that-you-are-in-a-relationship-with-your-soulmate/

http://www.twinflamesoulmates.com/signs-of-the-twin-flame.html

Let’s say that someone you know appears in recent dreams. Sometimes throughout the day, some elements of this will come true and can shock someone sometimes, because I am already an anxious, nervous person, and I have wanted to talk to those involved with this, some just cannot which is okay. But we are not that close, so it would be really weird if I were to drop these thoughts on someone that you know little about them, they might look at me weird already, or think you’re already crazy, call authorities  or call a shrink. I think its better to say nothing, hence backing away, even people recently I wanted to talk to, but if they did not think, or open in the same way, and a lot of other factors. They might think of me as crazy and there are limitations on my end too. I think we would be talking about it rather than me writing a post about this. Anyways that’s my experience, so stay quiet about it.

So the take away is that if you’re with someone, and they appear in dreams and parts of it come true during the day, that’s good, I mean, in my mind, it’s almost like spiritual bonding, maybe they want to say something, symbols, I could be way off my rocker on that one, but to me if you’re a little bit open, religious, spiritual, then events make sense, otherwise people will just make fun of you, label you, shun you, call you crazy, and drop you.

The overall message I would like to say, is that if you have someone like that in your life that you talk to and are close, never let them go. By reading these articles on soulmates, twin flames, its nice to see people looking for the deeper connection and love which is great to see that.
