Pucker Up and Kiss Life

Pucker up and kiss life.

If you got something to be happy about… kiss life… it deserves it.

If life is testing you… kiss life… it’ll be surprised at your candour.

If you are sad… kiss life… there may be hope from this gentle gesture

If you are angry… kiss life… you’ll calm down

If you hate someone… kiss life… it’ll make you think of the good things about that person.

In the end… just be patient. 

Life may just end up kissing you. :-X

The Paradox of Our Life : Sobering Thoughts

Oh my goodness… I was really surprise this morning when I came into office, checked my mail and got this email forward to me by my Dad… I wrote my earlier note on Saturday morning but when I read this one, it’s talking about something along that… and more!
It’s really true, and close to heart. Thanks Dad!

The NOTE :

Isn’t it amazing that George Carlin – comedian of the 70’s and 80’s – could write something so very eloquent…and so very appropriate.

A Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways,but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgement, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbour. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

George Carlin

1-0 Maxis Broadband/Streamyx Fixed Line

Ok.. it’s official.

My Maxis portable Broadband modem transmits faster than my fixedline Streamyx modem at home in the evenings.

Especially when I am looking through Youtube Videos and Facebook pages.

I thought I’d say that out so some bloody Streamyx people will know they have a sucky line here!!!

A Note for a Friend: Keep on Believing

My friend…

What you have today, may not be what you’ll have tomorrow.

And tomorrow you’ll have things that you are wishing for right now.

Believe…and know that whatever you are wishing for will come true.

Don’t say something that isn’t true, don’t assume that things are the way it should be right now…

but believe…

…because if it happens, then you’ll begin to trust in your beliefs.

…because if it doesn’t happen, you never assume that it is the way it will be, then you move on.

My friend, don’t say it, believe it.  Your action and your thoughts will begin to follow.

…and then things will be better.

Achievement

A friend (who is a real Queen, Queen J actually) once told me a really, really good quote.  And I thought about it and this is how I interpreted it:

"Be happy with what you have. 

Because what you want, you don’t have yet and you can get it anytime you set out to get it…

…but what you have, took your life’s effort and is a statement of what you achieved.

So, take pride and be happy with what you have."

Happy Again.

I’ve been feeling crappy for a while.. a long while now, but today I feel happy again. Liberated, I guess. 🙂

I wrote this here to remember. Maybe one day, I’ll talk about it. 🙂
