Value of time!

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, 

ask a student who failed a grade.

To realize the value of  ONE MONTH, 
ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of  ONE WEEK, 
ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, 
ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, 
ask a person who missed the train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, 
ask a person who just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, 
ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Leave It Open Yet Guard It Intensely!

Leave It Open

Yet Guard It Intensely!

Your heart is the core of who you are. Joy, hope, passion, peace all come from your heart. God wants you to live your life from the heart. Proverbs 4:23 is a powerful and life-changing truth: Keep and guard your heart will all vigilance... for out of it flow the springs of life. Guarding your heart involves choosing what you receive and what you will not receive in your heart, and that, in turn will determine the quality of your life. Guard your heart against hurt, resentment, bitterness, ingratitude, discouragement, and hate. Keep your heart open to 






Your Heart 
Will Determine 
Your Destiny!

[312 times a year!!!]

Couples argue 312 times a year,mostly on Thursday at 8pm for ten minutes. Domestic bliss? A fifth of Brits have considered splitting up with their partner over their annoying habits. There are the really big issues that divide couples… and then there are the very, very small ones. And the latter don’t half add up. Minor irritations such as leaving wet towels on the bed, flicking between TV channels and hoarding bits and bobs cause most of the 312 arguments that the average couple has each year, researchers say.Those little annoying habits can become such a big problem that one in five Britons have even considered them a reason to split up – with a Thursday evening the most likely time for a row to develop.

According to the researchers, women tend to become more frustrated with their partner’s habits than men. The most common complaints include loo roll not being replaced, lights that aren’t switched off, channel hopping and the lavatory seat being left up. But men aren’t immune to getting irritated either.They grit their teeth when their partner takes too long to get ready, clogs up the plughole with hair or nags them about chores. The statistics emerged in a study of 3,000 adults.

The study found the kitchen is also a common battleground for arguments about cleanliness.Although men were more relaxed in general they are more likely to consider ending a relationship over things like taking too long to get ready and nagging them about chores.Other habits that partners listed as annoying included leaving dirty cups around the house, hoarding stuff, flicking TV channels and leaving tissues all over the house.Eight out of ten people said they often found themselves cleaning up after their other half rather than continue to nag them. One in four credit their nagging with changing their partner’s behaviour. A fifth of Brits have even considered splitting up with their partner over their annoying habits.

"If you laugh
you risk to be seen as 

If you cry, 
you risk to seem 

If you lend a hand of help
you risk to get 

If you love
you risk to be 

If you don't risk
you risk to

["Our Contradictions"]

Here it's a part of Paulo Coelho's book "The Pilgrimage". YES! It's kinda long, but SO spirit-awakening!

At a certain point during my pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, we came to a flat, monotonous field of wheat stretching all the way to the horizon. The only thing breaking the dull landscape was a medieval column with a cross on top, marking the pilgrims’ way. Petrus – my guide – put down his backpack and knelt down.
– Have pity on those who pity themselves, and think life has been unjust to them – for they will never manage to engage in the Good Fight.
But have more pity on those who are cruel to themselves, and can only see evil in their own acts, and who consider themselves guilty for the injustices of the world. For they know not Your law which says: even the strands of hair on your head have been counted.

Have pity on those who command and those who serve many hours of work, and sacrifice themselves in exchange for a Sunday, when everything is closed and there is nowhere to go.
But have more pity on those who sanctify their work and go beyond the limits of their own madness, and end up in debt or nailed to the cross by their own brothers. For they know not Your law which says: be as prudent as a serpent and as simple as the pigeons.

Have pity on those who eat, drink and are merry, but are unhappy and lonely in their abundance.
But have more pity on those who fast, censure, forbid and feel saintly, and who preach Your name in public places. For they know not Your law which says: if I testify about myself, my testimony is not true.

Have pity on those who fear Death and do not know the many kingdoms they have crossed and the many deaths they have died, and are unhappy because they think that everything will come to an end one day.
But have more pity on those who have known their many deaths and think they are immortal, for they know not Your law which says: he who is not born again may not see the kingdom of God.

Have pity on those who cannot see anyone but themselves, and are shut in their limousines, locked in their air conditioned penthouse offices, and suffer in silence the solitude of power.
But have pity on those who go without everything, and are charitable, and seek to overcome evil with love only, for they know not Your law which says: he who has no sword, may he sell his cloak and buy one.

Have pity on us, Lord. For we often think we are dressed when we are naked, we think we commit a crime and in reality save someone. Do not forget, in Your mercy, that we unsheathe the sword with the hand of an angel and the hand of a demon gripping the same hilt. For we are in the world, we continue in the world and need You. We always need Your law which says: when I sent you without bag, pouch or sandals, you lacked nothing.
Petrus stopped praying. The silence continued. He was gazing at the wheat field around us.

"If I had my life to live over..."

"If I had my life to live over, I'd try to make more mistakes next time.

I would relax, I would limber up, I would be crazier than I've been on this trip. I know very few things I'd take seriously any more. I'd certainly be less hygienic. I would take more chances, I would take more trips, would scale more mountains, I would swim more rivers, and I would watch more sunsets. I would eat more ice cream and fewer beans. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones.

OH, I've had my moments, and if I had to do it all over again, I'd have many more of them, in fact I'd try not to have anything else, just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of my day. If I had it to do all over again, I'd travel lighter, much lighter than I have. I would start barefoot earlier in the spring, and I'd stay that way later in the fall. And I would ride more merry-go-rounds, and catch more gold rings, and greet more people and pick more flowers and dance more often, if I had it to do all over again, but you see I don't."

- Jorge Luis Borges

if you had to live

time OFF!

Many times we need time OFF!!! It's essential to recover the health of our spirit! To understand what is important for us! It's crucial to make a set-up for our principles and values and to make sure that we don't run away from them, but walk our roads in harmony with them - our principles and values. Keeping the integrity alive gives you power to go on and makes you confident in your own way of being. Excellence brings the difference. But in order to have it built in your life, you need time to analyze and time to see whether things are going accordingly or not.

Taking time to think brings SO many marvelous things in your life. Why?! Because you take time to contemplate what you've already have and because you take time to remove what you don't need or what should have been removed long time ago. Because you bring space for new things to come in your life, new challenges, new beginnings, and maybe new-discovered-you

"...not the one who's seen a lot will be the one to understand..."

Source: LINK

"… not the one who’s seen a lot will be the one to understand,
but the one who has lost a lot.
will be the one who will forgive not the one who never hurt,
but the one who has forgiven a lot.

will judge each who doesn’t have the power
the road to another one to give.
is jealous only that in whose veins
the blood will never boil.

and another’s pain will not be able to feel
the one who lives for his own good.
and the sorrow does not bother during nights
those who never knew love,

and the happiness of meeting will not know
the one who never inhaled a break,
but only the one who loses a lot
and learnt the value of many..."

[It's my translation for a poem that I found on 14 July, 2010 ^_^

Goals! Aims! Purposes! No matter how you call them, it's good to have them. They give a meaning to your life and a feeling that you are alive and existing. Goals make you live with excitement and joy. Goals make you measure where have you been and where you are at a specific moment of your life. Goals make you understand what else can be done in order to get there: your dream peak. 

If you got lost somehow and feel lifeless, you need a purpose to live for. A purpose that will make your eyes shine and flicker. A purpose that will make your heart jump and help you get up at 5:50 a.m. each morning without mourning and grumbling. Just joy inside yourself, even if some circumstances can really suck! A well motivated purpose brings fire in your spirit! You live!

How to find this "well-motivated" purpose?! There is no rule. At least, I didn't find any rule. What makes you feel alive... this is the purpose. Also, it should make you contribute to the world, somehow. And, even if from the beginning you are not sure, just go there and you are going to find it out: whether it's the purpose you was looking for or not. 

Make goals! And follow them. Results will come. Patience and perseverance! But follow them! Really do! Don't surrender!
