Blue loves it when I give him all my crap. I am a lucky girl.

Some sing, some read, some play video games and others, well…who knows what they do while taking care of business. Me, I played with Apps today. I have to admit it was fun, productive and entertaining . Ewww… my image on the web is ruined!!! In any case, if your interested, I used PhotoEdit first to crop, draw and add the text onto my photo. The text and image options were very limited but easy to use. Then I added an Instagram filter ‘Walden’ on top.

Now that you’ve manage to forget about my “creative crap” for a second, I hope you will discover fun filled joys in unexpected places.

To Believe, Just Believe

Tonight my elder brother shared a story with me. On his 25th birthday he celebrate with over 30 to 40 friends. They all took turns to wish and cheer him with drinks an so he drank and got drunk . After he arrived home, alone in his apartment, depression and loneliness took over him. Everything spiral downwards. He was emotional and physically miserable. He hated this feeling and thought to himself, “Why did I drink? I don’t like alcohol. What was all the drinking for? Not for myself… but for the enjoyment of others.”

He swore not to drink alcohol again and he would only do things that made himself happy. By this time it was 5am, to brush off these feelings he decide to go for a morning drive. As he drove, he noticed the sign in front of the church had changed. With the sunrise peeking from behind, the sign read, “To Believe, Just Believe”. At that moment epiphany hit him. “To be Happy, Just be Happy”, “To Love, Just Love” This can be applied to life in many ways, it was all that simple.

I am very touched knowing that God had answered my prayers. He was watching over and taking care of him. After all these years of being alone he has turn out to be a very good, strong, and kind man. I am not as strong as him and have many doubts if I will ever be, but I will not give up. I will always strive to better myself daily. Yet my brothers says,

 “To Believe, Just Believe. If you truly understand something you will not need to try, you will know how to apply it without difficulty in all things. It’s as simple as that.”

I guess I don’t get it yet… I guess I will know when I don’t have to try… So simple yet so deep…

1 step forward, 3 steps backwards

September 12th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

While watching “Beauty Knows No Pain” or “女人最痛”, a Chinese Drama last night. I heard this, “Every time you take 1 steps forward, you take 3 steps backwards. When will you ever reach your goal?” This woman was at her lowest with her beloved family, valued career and love life. Everything was a failure.  She lost all spirits. Her boss saw that and sent her to work with her worse nemisis who humiliates her and pushes her temper into eruption. In shame and humiliations she fights back and wins back what she values most.

Reminder: Your worst fears and nemesis can set you backwards but it can also be your best teachers. If you allow it, this can be a powerful source of energy that pushes you a lot farther ahead then ever expected.
