I'm speechless.....



The above picture was taken 2 days ago when i was busy with my assignment. As i looked out from my loft, i was astonished to see such sight! I've seen enough sunsets from my room but this is something out of the extraordinary!



Another sunset picture on a day when i felt really down. They said when you are down just keep walking, don't look back. For the past weeks, i spent a lot of time in solitude. When i felt really weak, i just curl myself in my bed and take deep breaths until i fall asleep.



Although the sun sets everyday but not every sunset is the same. There could be 365 different "versions" of sunset. In life, events passed by u so quickly until you forgot you had once encountered such a beautiful sunset. Be thankful, friend. Do you know evening is the time of the day i feared most? I enjoyed sunrise more than sunsets before i shifted here.



The following picture was taken before the rain came early morning. I can be so excited whenever i see the sky turned dark just before the rain.



Remember, if you are criticizing, you are not being grateful. If you are blaming, you are not being grateful. If you are complaining, you are not being grateful. If you are feeling tension, you are not being grateful. If you are rushing, you are not being grateful. If you are in a bad mood, you are not being grateful.

Gratitude can transform your life. Are you allowing minor things to get in the way of your transformation and the life you deserve?

May the joy be with you!

My views? I've been quite ungrateful recently. keke. But i must say whenever i walk out to take a bus, i always see blind people walking up the overhead bridge, feeling their way around and taking bus without anyone helping them. How can i not be grateful for what i have? I think, they are mentally so much stronger than me. I only know how to hide in a corner and feel miserable that i am a failure. Practice makes perfect! Give thanks to everything you have now however minor it can be. I am thankful that i've got some followers who love to read my blog. Yes, they are right, my blog is very different. If you read between the lines, you would have known me better cos this is part of my private personal diary. I'm thankful that strangers like you really took time to read whatever i wrote.

I'm thinking of starting a love blog on love experience, issues etc. Wanna collate all your love stories, feelings of being loved, hurt, disappointments, anger, touching moments. If you are willing to participate, email me your love stories (yongmei30@gmail.com) and i will publish them in the blog.

Haven't decided whether i should start a new blog or continue to use this blog to extend its contents. You could help by making suggestions.

Good say. Always feel contented and gratitude for everything we have. Compare to the less fortunate, handicapped and people struggling for life bond down with chronic illness

RELIGIOUSLY SPEAKING, YOU COULD BE RIGHT. INDEED, CONTENTMENT COUPLED WITH HUMILITY IS THE ESSENCE OF A HAPPY LIFE.
HOWEVER, ALL IN ALL, LIFE AND EVENTS IN LIFE ARE NOT THAT SIMPLE. VERY OFTEN, THINKS COULD HAPPY IN WAYS THAT ARE BEYONG ONE'S CONTROL.
RIGHT OR WRONG AT TIMES COULD BE VERY SUBJECTIVE. ARE MAJORITY VIEWS ALWAYS CORRECT AND MUST BE ACCEPTED? WHAT DO YOU THINK?

our attitude must be mindful and be clear of when we use "contentment" versus "complacency".

saying out negative words for the sake of negative words = complaint

voice out negative words offer with meaningful, relevant, constructive, alternate solutions / methods = feedback / comment / suggestion

its just my 2 cents worth of contribution. thanks. kind & warmest regards

Hi,wld feel tat its better to continue wit any new segment into the extg blog as u mentioned,"its like a private personal diary"

So that when all readers including yrslf will feel its like goin thru a personal journey of our life..different views at different stages of our life..when looking back later in future ,u may be amazed that your views may be veri much different.

However,Yong Mei,try not to share too much of yr personal thgs(just my personal view). Just like Joni Mitchell who wrote the song "Blue" & she bared everythg,left none to imagination. Who knows,like her,u grew strength to strength & oso gained much more Fans thru "sharing".Tats why shes one of the Greatest Song Writers of our time.

嗨咏梅,

您好!我的心情也糟.我爱上一个我不该爱的男人.但我跟他在一起十年了,他还是我的初恋,直到前天我才发现原来对方已结婚了. 从他破产开始,我就一直陪在他身边给他精神,甚至金钱支柱.当是我们都过得很辛苦,连吃饭钱都成问题..他算是度过难关了.还以为我和他可以踏上红地毯结婚了..谁知道他原来已婚,当时他老婆不和同他住一起,而是住靠近娘家那里..我的心真的很痛,我把我最宝贵的青春都奉献给一个以为可以托付终生的男人.我不是存心要破坏别人家庭辛福的坏女人.我曾经有怀疑和问过他是否已婚.但他却说没有叫我别糊思乱想.后来我选择相信他.因为我觉的两个人相爱就必须互相信任.如果他离婚我就变成一个破坏别人家庭的坏女人.我讨厌当第三者,但我却当了别人第三者.我不晓得自己该怎么办,怎么告诉家人,怎么跟朋友倾诉.因为我觉这是很羞耻的事.我只有想到可以在你部落格留言,这是我唯一可以抒解我内心的痛..

Yong Mei, I think you are a very very frank and compassionate person. You are not like others who are "acting" kind, good at talking but is actually wearing mask or just "an idol" (not just in entertainment circle.) Hypocrites and liars are so common and seems most ppl are such a kind of ppl and will resort to all just for own interest even if it hurts others and worst is they don't feel they are wrong even though they may act or say all sorts of words to lie to make ppl think they are still remorseful, regret, kind and good. There are so many these type of ppl and even those who one may know for donkeys years and trusted. Sounds pessimistic and terrible? but is really true and I really don't know who to trust ppl. I am just like your character.
