Who do you see in that inner mirror of yours?


THIS IS A CONFESSION POST

At times, when the things that you’ve said or done are being totally misunderstood by others?

Have you ever wonder?

Whose fault is this? 

Yours or the one who misunderstood you?

Most of the time, we might be in denial because deep inside because we knew that was not what we’ve meant in the first place.

There’s a saying in Chinese:

凡人畏果,菩萨畏因

A human is afraid of the consequence only after performing an action,

whereas the Bodhisattva starts thinking of the consequence before performing an action.

Yesterday, I’ve made a remark about an incident when I could choose to zip my lips and continue whatever I was doing.

It wasn’t any bad remark and the one who heard it didn’t really mind since we’ve been in the same group for many years and knew each other well enough to know that it was only a joking remark.

However, a person from another group had misunderstood my remark as a rebuttal and told Lovable Mom about it.

I felt really bad

Not because that person has misunderstood me

BUT FOR THE FACT THAT

I WAS THE ONE

Who has caused all those unnecessary misunderstandings.

Perhaps I have not been doing enough self-reflection and thus gotten carried away at times.  

This might be a sign telling me that I should start doing it more often in the future.

Found this picture at Ajaytao’s lovely blog and I am glad to be able to come out with some words of self-reminder in the following picture:

A Frame within a frame within a frame – Shi Jian Chiou

As always, I would like to thank Ajaytao for sharing with us so many wonderful and inspirational information.

It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way.

To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image;

the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.

~ C. JoyBell C.

As I’ve mentioned in the first line of this post, this is my confession in order to become a better person than yesterday.

If you’ve been reading until this line, thank you for shining your light on me via your lovely readership supports.

My Monday may be a little gloomy, but I am sure the rest of the day would be marvelous, just like all other Mondays.

So, may you lovely souls have a Marvelous Monday ahead too!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Love Is Always In The Air


Lovely Award

It is an honour to receive another “Lovely Blog Award” nomination and we would like to thank a lovely soul by the name of Shirlyn @ Cosy Bites for this lovely nomination.

If you are looking for food recipes to spice up your cooking life, be sure to check her lovely blog out. Her latest post “Honeydew Sago” made me drool all over the place… (do pardon me for this ill-manner)…for it is really hot in Singapore right now.

I decided to do this award addressing post because the following picture that I’ve came across in a lovely blog – Friendlypics – has given me some inspirations:

Love is always in the air

Once a heart has the awareness to…

Venture into the brightness of hope and joy while

Exiling all darkness that once consumed it whole 

We love to dedicate this to the lovely blog owner @  Friendlypics  for making this post possible and at the same time, this post award nomination post is dedicated to the following lovely souls who have selflessly allowing us to use their pictures and words in some of our previous posts:

  •  Ajaytao @ Ajaytao 2010: For making the posts “A Streaking Stream’s Question” ,”Surviving Harsh Winters” and “Knock! Knock!”  possible.
  • Ana @ Geophilia: For making the posts “Even If…This Road Just Goes Forever” , “Mission Impossible???”  and “An Unquestioning Faith” possible.

Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment.
~  Tony Robbins

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL LOVELY SOULS OUT THERE FOR MAKING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE BECAUSE LOVE IS ALWAYS IN THE AIR!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Answers…By The Broken Mirror


A lovely soul, Brijit @ BRIJIT’S DIGITS has nominated us the Sunshine Award

Most of her nominees are nail art related but she nominated us and here’s the reason that pinned a big smile on our face:

Clouds N Cups – this blog isn’t about nails, it’s just such a happy place

If you are a nail polish/art lover, why don’t you give her blog a visit and see what interesting things she has to share with you lovely souls.

A BIG BIG THANKS TO BRIJIT FOR HER BLOG LOVE!

MUAHK~ 😀

The Sunshine Award is an award for Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.

Normally we don’t do any nomination, but just for this award, we would love to nominate Marisoto @ The Broken Mirror , who definitely deserves this nomination.

This is a blog which I’ve been following for quite a while and I can really feel the rays shining out from her recent writings.

Our modified rule for this award is really simple – – To continue upload more sunshiny posts in the future.  

Without further adieu, here’s the beginning of the post that inspired me – Answers -:

A woman stands in front of her Doctor.

He asked her how she felt.

She said okay, which was lie.

Why are you here, he asked.

I don’t know, she said, but she knew.

Do you want to say something, he asked.

No, she said, even though a lot needed to be said.

May you sit down, and she said yes.

So the doctor asked…

Please read the complete post at http://brokmirr.wordpress.com/2013/03/25/answers-2/

 

The doctor asked many questions and I’ve chosen these answers to the question of “What Do You Love? Why?” because they have touched my heart and inspired me to create this using her lovely words:

28032013 - What Do You Love (Marisoto)

Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.

~ Walt Whitman

Have a Great Sunshiny Thursday!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~

A Fall Can Be Lovely Too


A lovely soul, Reocochran, who has so many wonderful stories to be told in her blog, has made a lovely comment in our previous post “An Unquestioning Faith” that pins a smile on my face because she has made me realized that a fall can be lovely too:

Lovely Falls - 18-3-2013

Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.
~ Victor Kiam

Happy Falling!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~

An Unquestioning Faith


Ana @ Geophilia is so kind to let me know that we should collaborate more, in which I am very grateful to her being such a generous and lovely soul.

Therefore, I’ve added another new category – Collaborations – for all the posts similar to this.

Also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the lovely souls who have allowed me use their photos for our posts. 😀

With a dose of the afternoon caffeine, these words came into my head when I found yet another inspiring photo by Ana:

Firehole Falls, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

A faith to be questioned, is not a faith in the first place.

Have faith in everything you do, especially when it is meant for a good cause

Even when only the sound of mockery is heard

The problem does not lie with you

It’s just them

 

Have a great Monday!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~

Mission Impossible???


Today, I am thankful and happy to locate another inspiring photo from the lovely Ana @ Geophilia:

Mexican Hat, Utah

Mother Nature keeps showing us all kinds of ‘MISSION IMPOSSIBLE’ via herself only to remind us nothing is impossible.

 Nothing is impossible

It’s simply achievable or not achievable

If you cannot achieve certain things even when you’ve tried

It is not mission impossible

Imagining teaching a fish how to climb a tree

A mission the fish just cannot achieve

This mentality can be easily understood

If your heart is now at peace

With a heart at peace while reading this post

Striking a balance in life just comes naturally

Have a great day ahead, always!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Listen – Not To, But With…


Listen To Your Heart (Poem) - 7-3-2013

Listen,

Real poetry doesn’t say anything;

It just ticks off the possibilities.

Opens all doors.

You can walk through anyone that suits you.

Abandon Babies Cry By Hikari Yori


ID-10095443

While waiting for the battery of my digital camera to charge up, I’ve taken the liberty to sort out all the lovely award nominations which I’ve yet to address to.

While some may think that receiving an award nomination is just a chain letter placed inside a nicely-designed envelope and at the end of the day, it is just a chain letter. ID-10080864

To me, it is a big motivation to know that a lovely soul has actually spent his/her time to search for our link, paste them in their post and taken the trouble to deliver us something that will brighten our day.

ID-10011252I might not have been following the rules and regulations for each different award, but the one thing I will always stick to is:

Giving the lovely soul who has brightened up my day A BIG BIG THANK YOU KISS…urhmmm…I think perhaps just a big THANK YOU will do huh? 😉

Lovely MuZer, who is still enjoying her vacation in her homeland (Gosh…I am missing her already), has nominated us 4 awards, in which 2 awards (Shine On & One Lovely Blog) have been addressed in our previous posts.

Blog of the Year Award 2 star jpeg

We’ve received The Versatile Blogger Award nomination from her on the same day. As the award nomination was gifted to us during late December 2012, the Blog of Year 2012 award nomination is gifted to us by MuZer as well.

A BIG THANK YOU TO MUZER FOR HER BLOG LOVE

ID-10056131

Ha!

I guess you lovely souls  must be wondering what is the title of this post got to do with the award nomination? 

I may not be a Christian, but I love visiting this blog because of all those beautiful and motivating words. I guess there shouldn’t be any religion boundary for sharing words of wisdom and enlightenment.

The title of this post would be the title of the poem that I am going to share with you lovely souls by Hikari Yori of Daylight Tunes.

The reason why I love this poem is because it touches my heart and I simply love the A-Z idea. I do hope you’ve noticed that the first word of each line begins with A, B, C …until Z.

Do pay her a visit by clicking the picture below.

Abandon Babies Cry (Hikari Yori)

A baby is born with a need to be loved – and never outgrows it.
~ Frank A. Clark

May you all enjoy this poem as much as I do.

Have a great Wednesday ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Knock! Knock!


We’ve received another lovely award nomination – Best Moment Award – from Ajaytao and decided to make a post for this when I found another inspiring photo from this wonderful blog and having the urge to place these words  in the photo.

A BIG THANK TO AJAYTAO FOR THIS LOVELY AWARD NOMINATION

Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.

Who is Who - 5-3-2013

Lesser Flamingoes…..by Ajaytao

I’ve found a quote which points the source to manifestyourpotiential.com but couldn’t find the exact article where these words are being extracted.

I think it is worth sharing:

Sometimes we live our lives like puzzle pieces turned upside down

Only showing the world our gray sides

Then along comes life

And it starts flipping them over

Showing to us and the world more than just the outline of who we are

It shows us the colours

If we can start to turn more over and put them together

We can see the picture of who we really are emerge

Till then,

Have a great day ahead, always~

Cheers & TTFN

Even If…This road just goes forever…


A lovely soul Ana, the owner of the blog Geophilia is kind enough to nominate us the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.

This is a blog which I’ve frequently visit and just like the other wonderful photo blogs, Ana has many photos that are very inspiring and lovely to look at.

Thus, in order to show our appreciation for her love, I’ve chosen one photo from her blog to be featured in this post and to share some words with you lovely souls that are inspired by this beautiful photo:

brn-cnty-road

The road goes on forever ~                                                                                                                                                                         It may seem like forever as you drive through Death Valley. What seems close is just an illusion and as you think you are getting close to your destination you are actually still very far away.

Exploring a trail

That may lead to nowhere

Finding a path

That might lead to somewhere

No matter how far

All traveling hearts would wander

Even if the road

Just goes on forever

At the end of the day

There is only one road

One road that a tiring heart

Never fails to choose

The road leading to

Where all hearts belong

The way back to

A Home Sweet Home

ONCE AGAIN,

A BIG THANKS TO LOVELY ANA FOR HER BLOG LOVE

Till then,

Have a great day ahead, always~

Cheers & TTFN
