Random thoughts and images

There are those moments when I want to write but idea seems to be elusive and when good things come to my mind I am about to sleep, and there are those times when I search for some things that I really need and couldn't to find it but when I don’t need it anymore it immediately showed up.   Those situations makes me realized that everything happens for a reason and things come in the right time.  I learned that when things went wrong all I need to do is be still and go on with the flow and trust God for he works his plan.  There was a time, way back then, when I was still studying, I got a failure examination in my statistics.  And I can’t believe on why it happens when I study a lot, pray to God and give my best. I cried the whole night because I can’t accept the truth and worry about my parent’s reactions when they found out, then on the following day my dean called me to come to his office, I felt depressed, but surprised when He told me that he make mistakes on checking my test paper and in fact I got a higher score and I was like wow! I waste my time crying when in fact I should be happy.

Well anyway, have you ever understand the reason behind all those bad things that happens to your life?  Do you ask yourself or God why it happens?  When things don't come my way, I used to look back my past experiences and how I get through with it and that’s how I get my strength to face my troubles and mistakes.  I always told myself that it’s just a bad day and tomorrow or soon it will be different just like before.

Anyway, at this time my photos and quotes are random thoughts and I hope somehow I inspire you to live, love and enjoy life.  I am always praying that you may have enough courage and strength to face the day.  Thanks for reading my Blog.

I’m glad and very much happy that I able to take a break and live with the things that I love and enjoy most which is taking photos and writing simple quotes. That’s one of the things that I’m passionate about. Well I’m sure you know what it feels like having your own time after working so hard.  And, so now here I am sharing my thoughts with you again and I hope I won’t get you bored.  Well anyway, I’m a big fan of Oprah Winfrey because of her compassion, humor and intelligence and so many other things, and I remember one thing she said about passion is it’s energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you. Every time I think about the things that I love and enjoy most there is certain kind of power that changes my emotions.   I don't know if you experience that kind of feelings, but I'm sure you do in some way.  I often heard from famous and successful people as they share and talk about the secret of their success and one thing they always mention, that’s passion, being passionate with what they do bring them to tower of success.  Oftentimes they advice to follow our heart and live with our dreams no matter what happens.  It’s not an easy thing to do, but it’s the only thing you must do, if you want to become the person you want to be.  I love the message that US President Barack Obama said to one of the late greatest innovators Steve Jobs, he said “Jobs is brave enough to think differently, bold enough to think he could change the world, and talented enough to do it."  And I absolutely agree to what he said.  There’s only one main ingredient in success and in happiness and that’s passion, passion to endure failure and embrace pain, passion to follow and live your dreams and passion to live life to the fullest. That’s life.

I hope you have a great day, same with me.  Always take time to take a deep breath and smile, be happy and enjoy life, because it will only yours once.

Between wealth and happiness

I’ve been very busy over the last few months, that’s the reason why I wasn’t able to continue on usual blogging. I really missed writing, taking photos and doing nothing. I work so hard.  In order to earn, to learn and to live, it’s not an easy situation, but still I manage to laugh and smile and be happy.  Now, I wonder, how many of you will sacrifice your happiness and risk your life just to gain wealth?  One of the famous billionaire once said “How I wish people were like me, who is rich and wealthy, so they know that happiness lies not on wealth and riches.”  I know lots of you believe on what he said, but still there’s part of your mind telling it’s a lie, and still want to be rich and wealthy someday, maybe because you are just curious on what it would be like to be on top, or perhaps you are tired waking up each day trying to make ends meet.  Anyway, whatever it may be, always reminds yourself that happiness is a choice and wealth does only give comfort and pleasure.  Never waste your time wanting for the things you thought it bring you happiness, especially material things and possessions, because happiness lies on you. Remember, wealth doesn’t change the reality of death, that’s what I always remind myself.

Images about Simplicity

What I always love about living in a small town is the simplicity of living, the comforting silence of nature and peace which can’t be found in the big city, well that’s for me.  And if you grow up in an urban area, living in a small town can be real boring as that’s the word I often heard from a city friend.  

Well anyway, in every aspect of our life we are taught about the importance of simplicity, doing things in simpler way in order to be good and great, but most of the times we ignore or let me say we fail because our notion about success is doing something difficult and complicated in order to achieve.  When in fact great things start from small beginnings, or doing simple good things each day will make you a great person someday.  Life is simple.  Life is good and beautiful. We are the one who make things complicated by doing what is wrong, making selfish decisions and looking things in a quite tough ways.

So, this is all for now and I’m wishing you a day full of joy and happiness…I hope you will enjoy my photos and simple thoughts this time.

One of my favorite authors that always bring inspiration to my life is the famous American author Helen Keller.  I admire her courage, optimism and determination in overcoming all the odds in living life.  One of the things she said “although the world is full of suffering, it’s full also of overcoming of it.”  I agree with her.  There might be time when it seems life is unfair and the world is not treating us well.  And we feel like we are alone and can’t go on living anymore.  Those tough moments are part of our life, its part of our living and it’s the most important part that makes us a better person.  We can always beat out and get over as long as we continue to face the morning.  As the song goes “I see trees of green, red roses too, I see ‘em bloom for me and you, And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.”  Never give up and always look around because God created our world with so much beauty and love.

So always remember, you can have everything that you needed in this world, just always dream and reach beyond your limits.  Never lose hope and enjoy life.  May you have a great and wonderful day!

It's all about LIES

We all tell lies once, twice or many times.  Most of the time, we used it as a trick to hide to truth, to avoid the consequences of our actions or responsibilities, or simply to gain something.  Because of cowardice and selfishness we choose to walk into the road of lies.  It’s the hardest part of every journey and it takes so much courage and strength to live and face the life of truth as it denotes sacrifices and suffering.  Like what I’ve read in a newspaper about a man who choose to die (commit a suicide) than to tell the truth, because telling the truth means putting his family in shame and justice because of what he has done.  We can’t runaway the truth because the lies we create will follow us.  Anyway, I felt sorry for him and for his family. 

I wonder how many people live their life carrying a lies on their back.  I was imagining how hard their life would be, waking up each day wearing a mask.  I can’t really blame those people who resort on lying because there are some situations or people who make you lie even though you don’t want to.  But still for whatever reasons lying is not a good thing.  It will ruin and break a relationship, it burn trust and gives you sleepless night.  So try to be brave enough to face the truth in every circumstance.  I am wishing you a wonderful day.  Always take time to breath, smile and make a wish.
