If I Had It All..

I used to think that because I never had anything when I was growing up, it is only natural for me to want stuff when I finally landed a job. And I was living like that for a few years until it dawned on me that Its not what I really want in life. I have said what I want in the previous post so, I am going to skip on that, (coz I don’t want you to “vomit blood” & hurl your laptop away..because of me..Β ) πŸ˜›

About making it big and having it all, I appreciate great talents that bring people to prosperity and fame and I believe that world is rewarding those people who have real talents. So when I think about it, I concluded that talent and passion comes before success.

However, talent can also bring you good riches or hell on earth. It depends on who you are as a person inside. Barbra Streisand once said that “success doesn’t change you, it only emphasize who you really are inside”.

Having said that, I think this world is full of people who have real talents but is afraid of going forth to harness it and make it into something big. It would be nice to have all of us realize our God given talents and make this world a better place. (As in really becoming successful and Β helping people and not start doing all the crazy stuff only the rich & famous is capable of doing..Oppss)

You see, sometime when we finally make it big in this world, we would think that it is all because of our own effort and so, we forget God. But those people who have nothing, never doubt that God is the one who provides them with everything. Anyway, don’t make it as a reason to not become a successful person. If God brings you to it, it means something to Him. So make your success as something meaningful to you and to HIM. πŸ™‚

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? ~ Mark 8:36

Jogging on Saturday Morning

It has been a long time since I jogged at the park. Exercising seems has taken a back seat in my life since…I can’t remember when.. πŸ™‚ Not a good thing..right?

I am glad I decided to drag my but off to the park this morning and because it is a rare occasion, I proudly present to you…the pictures of Tun Fuad Stephens Park, Bukit Padang. It is my favourite spot to jog because of its really breathtaking scenery. Take a peek;-Image

There is also a good seafood restaurant here namely Kampung Nelayan Restaurant that offer not only a variety of seafood dishes and that includes steamboat dishes but also a performance of cultural dance. I heart the steamboat dishes because the price & the food is just nice plus the scenery is great.

And then after you are done sweating, you can stroll along the stalls at the parking lot and buy some meats, drinks, vegetables, fruits, flowers..( a mix of everything) to your liking. Its not a problem if you are just there to jog. You can now..enjoy the rest of your Saturday, feeling refreshed. Like me…:)

I think I am going to do this more often. 30 minutes every Saturday. Cool??

P/S

I am having a nice day here. I hope you are too. Β Chaiyo! Chaiyo!!

Have a blessed Saturday πŸ™‚

Getting To Know You

When I go out with a friend and I have the intention to get to know her better, I normally ask a very specific question. I ask about her hobby. The thing is, when I want to get to know someone, I like the idea of adding another value to myself by adopting her unique attractive hobby (trait).

Today I met my friend and from our long date today, I uncovered her very specific hobby which is cataloging her books. πŸ™‚ I think that is something very interesting and I am seriously thinking of following her footstep.

When you like someone aka friend or attracted to someone personality, and you want to relate to her better and also you want to feel better acquainted with her, you would want to do something like that. It is another way of showing your love & support for her. At least, for me, it is like that. πŸ™‚

But also I did that because sometime when I chatted with a friend, I talk too much or I interrupt a lot. I hate that part of me. To make me stop talking too much, I start that kind of conversation “what is your hobby?” or “What items do you normally buy in the supermarkets?”…then I would listen very carefully without interrupting. That way, I could engage her more in the conversation without feeling guilty of conquering the whole conversation. It’s not fair isn’t? πŸ™‚

But then again I am actually a very awkward person. I get nervous very quickly when I have or need to talk with someone. Me being a chatterbox is another way to cover up my awkwardness. (LOL) That’s me. πŸ™‚

Hey..who cares. The important thing is I had fun and I am happy. πŸ™‚

Happiness In A Nutshell

Happiness to me is:-

1. When I am able to pack up my lunch and enjoy my breakfast in the morning. Remember that the basic necessities of life are food, shelter & some tender-loving -care. πŸ™‚ (Clothes too)

2. When I look my best, wearing clean clothes with a touch of make up to perk me up & bless others. πŸ™‚

3. When I am watching heart-warming movies & dramas that will surely impact my life and enrich it for good. πŸ™‚

4. When I am spending one whole day reading a book that I couldn’t part with until it is finished. πŸ™‚

5. When I can steal a day with my love one traveling somewhere on unplanned trip.

6. When I can put aside all the nice clothes, the high heels & the make up and just wear the torn off t-shirt, track suit bottom & joyfully hang out Β with hubby in the farm….wondering why oh why hubby doesn’t allow me to plant flowers at the yard of the small hut??? πŸ™‚

7. When my nephews and nieces come barging in my room..demanding for a kiss..a hug..with a barrage of questions for me to answer. πŸ™‚

8. When I feel comfortable being myself. There is no other thing that can get to me like when I feel I am nothing compared to others.

9. When I can be happy with someone else success and happiness and not in the competitive mode because I can clearly see my own goal. It is nice not to be clouded by other people ambition.

10. When I can pray Β earnestly to my Father in heaven every time I am in need of wisdom and strength to carry on living. I think the most unhappiest thing in life is when you are no longer able to rely on anyone..not even GOD.

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things

My Idea of A Perfect Life

I love the idea of living modestly..far more than the idea of living with a massive wealth that can last for generations. But then again…I never tried being rich, so I can’t really speak about wealth. On a few occasion where I had a brush with some wealthy acquaintances, I didn’t really feel like I could belong to that group. If there was one moment where I had been thinking about getting rich..it was when..I had a crush with a celebrity..I wish I was rich so I could fly to him and become equal and you know…*** (LOL..you are allowed to laugh)..

So there you go….that’s why I fall into the middle income group. I think..if I really want to become more than just an ordinary salary woman, perhaps I could open up my own small animal clinic and works really hard and..you know…become slightly rich.. (LOL)..but then I have tried working in a small animal clinic and realized..oh no…(I can’t deal with this everyday), so I gave up small animal clinic and become a civil servant. πŸ™‚

What I like about my job now is exactly because I am a government servant. Let me spell that again..SERVANT.. πŸ™‚

I love the idea of being a servant. It’s a far cry from becoming rich, but at least..you know..I have tested the water and this is where I think I can last. Because in being a servant, I help and I can still live modestly with my meagre salary. In short my mission in life is accomplished which is (to serve happily & live modestly).

The reason why I speak of this thing today is again because I just came back from field works and happened to meet some rich people who were naturally very generous, what with feeding you with all kinds of expensive foods and bringing you to places..BUT still I feel hollow and empty..when I returned back home, with the questions in my head (would I ever find true friendship with these people since I have nothing to offer).

With that thought..I once again reaffirm myself that I love my life just the way it is. πŸ™‚

HE who Saves Me

When I was a teenager, I wanted to be away from home as far as possible. “Home” couldn’t give me peace. It wasn’t because I had bad parents. It just that…my parents seemed like, they were never happy with each other. Even now, I couldn’t recall a single memory of them smiling or laughing together. I felt suffocated. That’s why, I studied hard with the hope that I would be awarded a scholarship which will enable me to study somewhere, anywhere but near home. Of course my parents wanted me to do well in school, but they didn’t know the motivation Β behind it was not exactly because I wanted to please them. I was just being a selfish bra**.

By the way…I want to continue my life story so badly like..right now (because I am eager to share how I changed from being a bra**y girl to a better person πŸ™‚ )..but actually before I do that..I think I will continue that story in other post…today what I really want to share, is about what happened today.

I have a friend who really is now going through a hard time. What is happening to her right now, is not that much different from what happened to me in the past, the reason why I am reminded of my struggling + rebellious years.

I am no longer bitter or sad about the past but one thing for sure is that, I am still grateful & thankful. πŸ™‚

My friend is going through a depression and clawing through the ground to find some peace and solace. I really want to comfort her so I told her about the various things that I did to come out from depression. The things that I did as I told her were; adopting a pet , listening to gospel song, reading self-help books, emptying my heart out by continuously writing in a journal, daily bread reading, taking up a hobby:knitting & finally (of course there were plenty…), but because she didn’t seem to receive those mentioned things well…I told her the only thing that she MUST hear and MUST believe and DO which is to PRAY and become CLOSER to GOD.

You know what..I didn’t cry when I told her about my struggling years, but tears were welling up in my eyes when I remember that God was and is the one who SAVED me. So, no matter what I shared with her today, I hope she believed me when I said if she wants to be released from “depression”..she should seek God with all her strengths. πŸ™‚

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze
