I can’t wait December.. I can’t wait December because there’s so much celebration in December. They are Christmas Day and Birthdays. Since I was small, I always can’t wait for December. My birthday and Christmas celebrations are in December. Fortunately, my husband also was born in December. Therefore, there’ll be big celebrations in December.
And for this year, I am so excited about our Wedding Anniversary. Our wedding is going to be one year old. I wish to celebrate it in a memorable way so that my husband and I will cherish it for the rest of my life.
It’s better to think twice. Whatever we do and whatever we think about, we better think twice. As we carry on our life, we will face anything that really makes us to think twice. For instance, it’s about the future career, future life planning, choosing a life partner, buying a house and so on. So what is so important about these? Elderly said, you who are work wonder for yourself. Other people can’t do it for you. You’ll decide. You are the painter for your future.
For me this is true. However, at the end of the day, it’s all in God’s hand. People always do the planning but only God knows the result. Therefore, ask for wisdom. Ask God to give you strength and to show you the right way. This is life. We can take our friends, partner or parents to give us guidance in what are we doing, but in the end we have to decide which is right and which is not. As you go on, you’ll now realize that the key of life is prayer, it’s the prayer for wisdom.
Yesterday, I got an email from my colleague. It's fun to read. It contains some lessons for us to think about. I smile when i read this email. Here i share it with all of you.
5 Minute Management Course.
Lesson 1: A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor.Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel, 'After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?' 'It was Bob the next door neighbor,' she replies.'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'
Moral of the story:If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.
Lesson 2: A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.'Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.'
Moral of the story:If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
Lesson 3: A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Geniecomes out.The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.' 'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk. 'I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.' Puff! She's gone.'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.'Puff! He's gone.'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager.The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after lunch.'
Moral of the story:Always let your boss have the first say.
Lesson 4 An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?'The eagle answered: ' Sure , why not.'So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story:To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.
Lesson 5 A turkey was chatting with a bull. 'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.' 'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. 'They're packed with nutrients.'The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.
Moral of the story:Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.
Lesson 6 A little bird was flying south for the Winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.
Morals of the story: (1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy. (2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend. (3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!
Yesterday i read one interesting article from msn. It's about relationship and marriage. To make it short, here i share with all of you what make me feel it is interesting. How Marriage Helps Your Brain by Thomas Crook, PhD, Prevention
1.Take dancing lessons The combined physical and mental challenge is a great brain workout.
2.Watch movies and discuss the plot and characters Research shows that men and women use different areas of the brain when viewing films, resulting in different perspectives and insights.
3.Throw a party for a diverse group and then debrief each other the next day Areas of the brain involved in learning and memory can be stimulated by social interaction, and you may be surprised at how differently the two of you interpret the evening's party politics.
4.Learn a language together Gradually incorporate new words and phrases into your conversations. Or sign up for Merriam-Webster's "Word of the Day." It's a free service (m-w.com) that delivers the definition and origin of a new word via e-mail each day.
5.Take on a home project to learn each other's skills There is no reason a wife can't rewire a lamp or, speaking from experience, a husband can't learn about wall colors other than white. At the very least, learning new skills together gives you and your spouse something to talk about other than the kids and work.
I still remember when I used to be a small kid. I never thought about future or about current news, money or anything. Owh..what a bliss being a small kid. What we used to do is playing, went to school, met friends, watching tv and etc.. If I can turn back time, I want to be small kid again. Never worried about anything and all are provide by our parents. Nowadays, as adult we have to worry about everything, from money, relationship and etc..
Not long ago,I received an email from one of my old friend, asking me how to choose a better person for her life. A better man, a right man, a prince charming and a soulmate. She said he know this guy who is really sweet and good to her. After went out with him for few months, she somehow accidentally met her previous friend. A male friend who used to be good to her too. Now she dilemma to choose between that guys.
As she wants some opinion and advice from me. I give some advice and the way of my thinking towards her dilemma.
1. Pray. First of all pray to God. Ask Him what best for you. Ask for guidance and blessing. 2. Don't rush. Give yourself sometime. Don't too rush to make the decision to choose between them.
3. Stick to one. I mean if the current boyfriend is really already too good for you, why you should left him just because the other look more nice. No, this is not encouragable. Remember, you cannot get all what you want. Both you should build the happiness together.
4. Praise to God. Praise to God and thank God you found him. Take him for what he is.
5. Do happy things together. Do happy things together and try to remember it for all of you life. As you in happy state, there is no time for you to look other guy. Same as him. 6. Choose from your heart. Follow you heart. If things happen that you have to choose between them, you must know which one is really want you. I mean who are really want you to be his best person in his life. The one who respect you and of course loves you as well treat you well. He accept you as who you are and willing to lead you to a better person or better life and a kind of who thinks religion is very important. This guy should be in. 7. Don't be too choosy. You know what is its' effect to you if you do so. So these are all what I gave her. There are many more but i didn't have time to write it all. However, i mentioned to her that this is not a guarantee what best for her. These are just a guide. If things workout because of these advice, i myself am very happy for her.
Time will reveal. Back to basic. It's all in God's hand. We should follow His way. He will guide us.
Today, i suddenly started to feel new breath is coming in my life. As before, I always thinking whether I can face the pressure in my life alone. It has been tying in my heart for a long time. Someone who bothered by any type of pressure in their life will trying to get rid from it as soon as possible. Same as me.
It happened after meeting session in the office. Suddenly I felt new breath in my heart. A courage and a new spirit. It leads me to think that where are all these came from. Why i have this kind of feeling? What is it actually? Why I feel like this?.. Something blowing in my mind that widen my thinking about future. I always being pressured of thinking regarding of what I should do for future. I want to change the fact for what I have today. I want a new life. I want to be a new person with successful career and so on. So how can I achieve all these? I feel very tired whenever I think about it. Suddenly out of nowhere, I feel blessed. My husband called me around 11 am. He told me that the manager of the bank called him. Our home loan is finally approved. After waiting for a long time, this is one of our plan that I always wanted. I wanted own house and live in it together with my beloved hubby with joy and happy without bothered by others. Now i know. God give me some hope. He gives me hope so that i should not feel pressured every day and i should trying to accept that all things happened according to what He want, not what i want. I should try to listen to Him more. Yes we know that, we are the one who can plan for the good of ourselves and for our own future. We are the painter of our own life, the decision is all in our hands. But at the end of the day, it is all in God's hand. He know what best for us. And it is very important to be grateful for what we have today.
I am so happy that finally I set up my own blog site. So what is the best about this blog? I can say that not much actually. It is just a place where I can express my own way of thinking, about life and surrounding. Let’s say it is about the whole aspect of life; self enrichment, emotion, health, relationship, marriage, parenting and kids, journey of life, spiritual life, presents and future life, current news or anything that has really to do with it. It is wise for us to share all these kind of thing. It can give as general view as well as wide view about life.
Some of my friends really asked me how to choose the right man for her life, some request the tips for how to prolong relationship, some asked how to deal with their parents who are really not suited with their own lifestyle and etc.
So, as this blog created and on its journey, I hope some of the ingredients here can contribute good parts in of all of us.
