Life's Touching Moments!


We all have responsibilities towards our family, our loved ones, our colleagues, our teachers and too often, we forgot to leave some time for ourselves. We ignore our feelings of tiredness until we feel totally BURNT OUT. Everything in your life becomes chaotic, nothing works for you and you are constantly frustrated with someone, something.

This is the universe hinting to you that its time for you to slow down, spend solidarity moments with GOD and not forgetting, yourself and let your soul catch up with you.

The two most therapeutic rewarding experience of my 2 nights stay at the hotel include enjoying lunch + listening to the rain. And, just lying on chair at the balcony, staring at the sea and doing absolutely nothing. Although i experience insomnia for both nights and slept only 3 hours each, to my surprise, i felt so energetic after that! When i can't sleep on the 1st nite, i was so angry with myself and i forced myself to sleep. I've been too burnt out until i find the tranquility of the night disturbing.

The next day, I prayed for my mum to sleep and breathe easier every nite and for guidance in my personal dreams. Then I asked Him for directions and hope for a rainbow to appear before me if my prayers were heard. I didn't expect to see a rainbow as i was watching CNN on MJ's reports in my room and waiting impatiently for the room service to arrive with my dinner. There wasn't sun on that evening and it had stopped raining for many hours.

And just when the room service guy appeared, i started to prepare to eat my dinner at the balcony. The moment i put down the laksa, i saw the rainbow appearing miraculously before me. I was too overwhelmed and touched by the sight that i feel like crying!!

If you never believe in miracles, you would say, its just part of nature. But i believed its GOD's creation. Hallelujah! Sometimes, you just have to believe to see it! Be patient with GOD.

One of Michael Jackson's friends mentioned this at the memorial service which i think is very meaningful. I forgot the exact words but it goes something like that..."We are all but dust and our purpose in this short-lived life on earth is to make an impact on other people's lives." That's my current main purpose in life too! God Bless!
