November =)

Time really flies! Tomorrow we would be ushering in the month of November, which is also the 2nd last month of the year....

For at least the next 2 months, my main resolution is to just keep moving forward no matter how bad things may turn out :) It is undeniable that we get disappointed, upset, angry and any other unpleasant feelings at some or many points of life..but letting these emotions overwhelm us stops us from staying objective and seeing the bigger picture.

What's life without challenges..it is a fact that everyone goes through..the journey is never smooth sailing..but with all the tides and waves, we become a better and stronger person :)

Verse for the day..
Proverbs 3: 5-6
 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
       and lean not on your own understanding;
 6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
       and he will make your paths straight.

Love :)

This passage does give a lot of encouragement especially whenever we get upset or someone makes us disappointed, hurt or angry :) It also reminds us of the character to follow in our life..

1 Corinthians 13

love never fails Pictures, Images and Photos

Love

1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.



8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.



13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

The art of conversation


Hi everyone :) Welcome to a brand new week and hope you are in the best of health.

Today's post is not really related to health, but rather how to engage in a meaningful conversation. Sometimes, when we are excited about something, we tend to talk non stop forgetting the listener has not said a word :)

A proper conversation involves two or more people involved and not just one person dominating and talking all the time. Hence, it is important to remember to give others a chance to express their views regardless of how much we have to say.

Listening more to others is also a great way to make new friends. As we let the other person talk, we learn more about him/her and they also feel really happy that we've lend them our ears :)

Lastly, how do we end a conversation? If we're not in a rush, just let the other person finish up what they are saying. On the other hand, if you're rushing for time, simply excuse yourself nicely, telling the other person you've got another appointment and will catch up with them some other time :)

Chase away the blues :)

We all do look forward to starting a great week..but sometimes things are not so smooth sailing. Nevertheless, it is a fact of life and it is up to us how we want to tackle the various issues.

Stay focus and keep looking forward :) It would save us a lot of energy as well as unnecessary frustration which would impact our health negatively.

When you feel down or discouraged, remember that the sun will continue to shine and there is always hope for life to go on :)

Obsession can be dangerous



This was news in 2008, but one principle remains- to appreciate and be thankful of the looks we have. It is a heartbreaking video of irreversible damage done due to obsession with beauty. Of course, this is indeed a rare and very extreme case where the Korean model, Hang Mioku injected cooking oil into her face in hope of getting softer and smoother skin without paying for high cosmetic surgery fees. This incident happened about 20 years ago.

Every person has their physical flaws-no one is perfect. But one thing to bear in mind is that we should be thankful for the way we look. Besides, this is just one aspect of life and there are so many other things in life to look forward to :)

Obsession is dangerous because it causes people to act irrationally, hence making decisions which may have a detrimental or irreversible effect like in the case above. The fact that we need to dress properly and take care of our looks is nothing wrong-we should never try to be like someone else because each of us are unique and have our own strengths and weaknesses.

Do check these out too :)
