The Altitude of Your Attitude


An ATTITUDE can be defined as…

A positive or negative evaluation of people, objects, event, activities, ideas,

or

just about anything in your environment.

(Wikipedia)

Attitude 1 - 21-1-2013

Humans evaluate the acceptability of behavior using social norms and regulate behavior by means of social control.

According to moral values, human behavior may also depend upon the common, usual, unusual, acceptable or unacceptable behavior of others. 

(Wikipedia)

Attitude 2 - 21-1-2013

It is time for some numbers crunching, my dear lovely souls out there reading this post 😀

If A=1, B=2, C=3 and so on…

Match the number equivalent to each letter that forms the word ‘Attitude’ and sum them up.

You will be able to understand why our attitude is playing such an important role in our life.

******

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” 
~ Zig Ziglar

******

Do drop us a comment and tell us the altitude of your attitude (after doing the summing).

Have fun doing the numbers crunching and have a great day ahead!

Till then,

Cheers and TTFN~

Always A Day Away~


Past,Future,Present - 7-12-2012

One fine day, a lady was inside a mall doing her Christmas shopping. Her eyes immediately brightened up when she noticed a poster outside one of her favourite shops:

” ENJOY A DISCOUNT OF 99%  ON ALL ITEMS, STARTING FROM TOMORROW!!”

The next day, she happily skipped into the shop and started putting things into her cart without even looking at the price tags, why bother?

Her eyes almost popped out when the cashier informed her the final amount to be paid.

“Why is it still so expensive? You didn’t even apply the discount.”

The lady glared at the young cashier.

“Please…read…the…poster…aloud…”

The cashier requested in a stammering tone and so, the lady started reading it out loud.

” ENJOY A DISCOUNT OF 99%  ON ALL ITEMS, STARTING FROM TOMORROW…”

The moral of this story:

TODAY is a present but you can always enjoy a good discount during TOMORROWs!!

May this short and hopefully laughable story prepare you for a great day ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Do You Have A Question?


This morning, I was browsing through the TV programs and stopped at a channel featuring a Korean horror movie:

A man received a call from a man telling him that his wife was actually having an affair behind his back. He thought it was only a prank call.

Then, when his mother asked him who was the man she saw talking to his wife at the road side during the other day and she was very sure that the lady was her daughter-in-law.

CNC-RR002-AGED-BRONZE-GEM-EYE-OWL

And the owl keeps going: “Who? Who? Who?”

The man ended up killing his wife, got out of the prison and tried to locate the man who made the prank call but ended up being ridiculed by the mystery caller and still  failed to receive the answer he was looking for  — was his wife really having an affair?

He was already a regretful and confused old man when the two main characters managed to locate him and this was his conclusion:

“Thinking about too many questions without answers, it will become a curse.”

Questions - 22-1-2013It wouldn’t be a curse if only he would have asked his wife in the first place.

His conclusion has somehow reminded me of a song which I’ve learnt many many many many years ago (when the first digit of my age began with a number ‘1’) — a song with interesting questions and wise answers.

Love Can Burn - 22-1-2013

Lyrics taken from Tumbalalaika (English Version)

The version I’ve learnt, apparently is an English version and a shorter one, the lyrics are as follow:

Maiden, Maiden Tell Me True

What Can Grow Without The Dew

What Can Burn For Years And Years

What Can Cry And Shed No Tears

Tum-bala, Tum-bala, Tum-bala Laika x 2

Tum-bala Laika x 4

Foolish Lad, I’ll Tell You True

A Stone Can Grow Without A Dew

Love Can Burn For Years And Years

A Heart Can Cry And Shed No Tears

Tumbalalaika is a Russian Jewish folk and love song in the Yiddish language. Tuml is the Yiddish word for noise and a balalaika is a stringed musical instrument of Russian origin.  (Wikipedia)

A Balalaika (Taken From Wikipedia)

This love story is about a smart young lad who wants to get married and he wants to choose a smart girl to be his bride as well. So, he stays up late at night, inventing riddles to test his bride.

Here’s a video of the song in its original language:

As a matter of fact, there are more riddles that weren’t sung out in the video and here are the missing riddles:

What is higher than a house?

What is swifter than a mouse?

What is deeper than a well?

What is bitter, more bitter than gall?

***

A chimney is higher than a house

A cat is swifter than a mouse

The Torah is deeper than a well

Death is bitter, more bitter than gall

“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.” ~ Voltaire

Have fun reading this post!

Till then,

I know Life Sucks But Just Love It Since We Don’t Get To Live Forever Anyway….


The present moment is nice but it does not last.

Living in it is like waiting in a junction town for the morning limited

The junction may be interesting but some day you will have to leave it

And you do not know where the limited will take you.

~ Bruce Catton

Lyrics extracted from the song, A Shoulder To Cry On sang by Tommy Page

Life is full of lots of up and downs,

But the distance feels further,

When it’s headed for the ground,

And there’s nothing more painful,

Than to let your feeling take you down.

I’ve gotten to know this song via an extra curriculum activity called ‘LDDS’ when I was in secondary one (hmm…22 years ago…gosh…I feel so old right now).

Although I don’t really consider it as one of my favourite songs, the first part of the lyrics just etched itself into my mind and no matter how hard I tried to forget, I will still remember it. So well, just be it…since it was quite useful to hum this song whenever I am in one of those down moods.

If you are interested to know this song, here’s a link to a YouTube video with the full lyrics and many cute photos:

A Shoulder To Cry On

As a matter of fact, I am inspired by a quote by Mother Theresa ‘Life is’ and it kind of reminded me of this piece of jewelry so I decided to pen down this post and the above is just a side track to this (I tend to stray off very easily).

So take a look at this quote and if you can understand why I’ve put this piece of jewelry in this post, let me know if we do share the same sentiment.

Without further adieu, here’s the quote:

Life is an opportunity

Benefit from it

Life is beauty

Admire it

Life is a dream

Realize it

Life is a challenge

Meet it

Life is a duty

Complete it

Life is a game

Play it

Life is a promise

Fulfill it

Life is sorrow

Overcome it

Life is a song

Sing it

Life is a struggle

Accept it

Life is a tragedy

Confront it

Life is an adventure

Dare it

Life is luck

Make it

Life is too precious

Do not destroy it

Life is life

Fight for it

Enjoy reading this post!

Don’t Just Say ‘I Love You’, Say ‘I Know How To Love You.’


CNC-LN011-LOVE-ENCASING-PEARLS

If you are reading this post of ours, it would mean that you’ve ‘survived’ 21st Dec 2012.

I’ve received a Tweet during last night (20.12.2012) saying that the so-called the end of the world has been postponed to 3rd Sept 2015, meaning, we will have another 3 more years or so to help turn this world into a better place to live by having more positive thoughts, positive actions and most of all, positive love.

I’ve always believe that as long as goodness still exists in mankind, the world won’t have the heart to come to an end.

😉

POSITIVE LOVE

‘Love’ is a general expression of positive sentiment (a stronger form of like), love is commonly contrasted with hate.

Since love itself is already a very positive adjective/noun/verb, then why bother putting the word ‘positive’ in front?

ID-10057689

Question: Is English your first language??

ID-10011509

Ans: I’m afraid it is so, but I still get confused with all the grammatical stuff… 😦 

Well, every coin has two faces so even for an action or feeling with such positiveness tends to have two faces when being overlooked, misused or even abused.

Therefore, the word ‘POSITIVE’ is there to act as a reminder.

This post is actually inspired by two pictures which I’ve found in my Facebook page which  I would like to share with you lovely souls out there.

How much do you love yourself?

You cannot enjoy happiness if you are not at peace with yourself.

I’ve seen many extreme cases around me — from those who wanted to be perfect in front of others by constantly looking for flaws within themselves and becoming their own worst critics to the kind of egotistical self-love based purely on selfishness, pleasure and fame.

Those are definitely not any positive love for yourself.

The following picture speaks for itself :

Find the true love within yourself by loving yourself, for true love is in abundance within yourself.

How much do you love the one who has completed you?

Relationships are hard work and they’re a never-ending quest to ensure the happiness of one another.

When love becomes overbearing, it is often being misused/abused in a relationship:

Woman: Why can’t I go out with my friends anymore?

Man: Because I want you for myself.

Woman: You are such a possessive jerk!

Man: No I am not. I just love you too much!

On the other hand, the hottest heart of love is just like heated iron and if left untouched will get cold of itself and eventually, turns sour.

When Love Turns Sour

(Extracted from: http://www.naijastories.com/2010/12/when-love-turns-sour-2/)

When Love turns sour
each visit to see her becomes a chore
climbing Mount Everest is an east feat
as to getting on the bus to her abode!

When Love turns sour
Phone Calls becomes
dull, repetitive, monotonous syllabic utterances
‘blah, blah, blah’ how she goes on and on!

When Love turns sour
the soup she cooks always has too much salt in it!
her Eba (farina) always has too much lumps in it!

When Love turns sour
her Jollof-Rice has the oil and water running different routes
one to the east, the other the west

When Love turns sour
her kiss has too much Saliva
wow is she an Ilama?

When Love turns sour
her make-up is always too much
her face painted like a Masquerade!

When Love turns sour
sleeping in the sewer is more appealing than sharing the bed with her!

Sounds familiar?

Sadly it does.

So, what will happen when positive love is applied in a relationship?
