pondering thoughts


once in a while, quiet moment renders me on reflective mood; musing about life in general, love in particular and even the most mundane of things we take for granted...like a flower blooming and the sound of birds singing. and yes, you can say "here she goes again, babbling away incessantly".....Touche!!

sheer knowledge of one’s self is the cornerstone of how we perceive life and whatever it brings us. it is where true power comes, an inelienable freedom begins and unquenchable noesis relies. the most potent tool a man can have is knowing your own strenght and defeating the frailty of your limitation. it is by knowing yourself that you can explore the possibilities and opportunities life has to offer. character isn’t made in the ease and repose of life neither in the the stillness and quietness of time. it is build in extreme adversity, in the moving ridge of tribulation. it will come forth triumphant, victorious and undefeated in the face of massive asperity. it is the defining moment in one's life that makes you who you are, a path that you and you alone will tread not to pull you down but to bring out the best in you. it is what seperates a man from a boy.

we should see life as how we would like to live it. paint it as how you envisioned it painted, add your own colours into it. sing a melody you wanted to bring into harmony with life and in turn, it will sing that melody back to you. move gracefully and in rhythm with life. don’t be too hard on yourself, in time you will find the beat flowing easily.

in life, nothing is ever written in stone.marvel on it day by day, savour it moment by moment.breath as if it is your last, laugh as much as you can, love as deeply as you live, derive pleasure from it as if there’s no tomorrow. in tranquility and prosperity, be thankful. in rigor and sterness, be prepared. .....when the wheel of life turn, you'll never know where you will end.

  1. oh, so glad to see this back....i thought it got lost after blogger came back..... i wanted to leave comment here yesterday but could not do it because blogger said they are only in read-only mode....

    anyway, thanks so much for the inspiration Eng, I couldn't add more, they are all so true. i especially like this one...
    "character isn’t made in the ease and repose of life neither in the the stillness and quietness of time. it is build in extreme adversity, in the moving ridge of tribulation. "
    - so very true. just imagine if life had been so easy all along for us, how would we develop strength in character? all those tears, all those struggles, defined us and prepared us for bigger victory.

  2. As my 67th birthday draws ever closer, I can wish I hadn't encountered so much stress in the last few years. It often seems that we remember the worst things so readily and, often, forget the joy...but, if I'm honest, I've had plenty of that, too. When I lost my 21 year forensic nursing job with the city and county of San Francisco two years ago, I truly thought I would die - actually, wished I would die. With my medical limitations, I couldn't just move into another position. I have had one heck of a time dealing with the limitations imposed by a massive reduction in my income, the loss of my ability to travel the world - but I have endured and adjusted. Through blogging, new to me, I am still seeing the world and making new friends and trying new things...and I've even published my first poetry bood ( at 65 ). I would still rather be working, believe me, but I am surviving and I have so much for which to be grateful. I look at tragedies such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and thank the Lord for sparing me that sort of pain. I do have countless blessings!

  6. The part that hits me most ... " it is the defining moment in one's life that makes you who you are, a path that you and you alone will tread not to pull you down but to bring out the best in you".


    You just made me stay still and be quiet for a few minutes and ponder my thoughts. It's been a while and with the chaos of life, I haven't had the chance to reflect.

    The picture is lovely !

  7. What is the roll of money in life, what is the first priority family or money.? This is my opinion, both is important play in life. without family you can't live happy. hence for the happy family money should be must in your pocket. whatever today is people are running for money. i also one of them. if you have money than you can enjoy everywhere, purchase any things as well as you full enjoy to travel in world wide.Thanks
