Try To Remember, If You Remember, Then Follow…


Happy September to all lovely souls out there!

A lovely song to share with you lovely souls during this beautiful month

TRY TO REMEMBER by Jerry Orbach

But before hitting the play button,

here are some of the lines (not in sequences) in this song lyrics that I really love:

Try to remember when life was so tender

That no one wept except the willow.

Try to remember when life was so tender

That dreams were kept beside your pillow.

It’s nice to remember without a hurt the heart is hollow.

Try to remember, and if you remember,

Then follow.

The version that I am going to share with you lovely souls is the one sung by Patti Page (a version in 1965 on her album Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte.)

Remember even though the outside world might be raining,

if you keep on smiling the sun will soon show its face and smile back at you.

Anna Lee

Once again,

Have a wonderful September and may this month be filled beautiful memories waiting to be created and remembered!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN ~ 😀

Which Chapter Are You At Right Now?


During a sharing session that I’ve attended during last Saturday, someone shared this very inspiring poem written by Portia Nelson.

Since it is such an inspiring and enlightening poem, I would love to take this opportunity to share with all you lovely souls out there who have been with us in this post after our recent long silence:

Autobiography In Five Short Chapters

Portia Nelson

*****

Chapter 1

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I fall in. I am lost….I am helpless.

It isn’t my fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.

*****

Chapter 2

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the side walk.

I pretend I don’t see it.

I fall in again.

I can’t believe I am in the same place.

But it isn’t my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

*****

Chapter 3

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there.

I fall in…it’s a habit…but my eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.

*****

Chapter 4

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.

*****

Chapter 5

I walk down a different street.

Ahhh…those darn deep holes in our life…do they sound like a familiar place to you?

I’ve fallen, many times before, without knowing

I’ve fallen, many more times before, knowing very clearly that I would need to get out via the hard way

Those were done during my younger days. thinking that I still have many days ahead to waste

At this stage of my life

I might need to fall into them a few more times, without knowing

But I need to get rid of this bad habit, so that I can walk around them with my head held high

For getting rid of this bad habit may make me wiser than before

Wise enough to help myself discover many more streets to walk down

Before ending this post, this is a soundtrack from the movie “Evita” (one of the few movies that I had watched in cinemas) to share with you lovely soul out there.

I simply love the tune of this song and though the lyrics sounded really sad, it is also very enlightening as well.

May you lovely souls enjoy the poem and song that we’ve shared in this post.

Have a lovely Monday and a great week ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

What Would You Do If Your Road Ahead Is Going To Be A Rough One?


BACK TO BASIC

I’ve gotten this answer from Rhino the hamster after watching “Bolt” during a few years back and thus would like to share with you lovely souls out there via this post:

Bolt: The road’ll be rough.

Rhino: I HAVE A BALL.

Dialogue source: Bolt (2008) – Quotes – IMDb

The answer from Rhino (or should I say the script writer) has waken me up.

A ball indeed is all he has.

To us, he is just a hamster inside a ball and yet he sees that ball as his main asset.

Ever wonder, especially when we are solving those very complicated mathematical problems and after writing almost half a page of working lines, the answer turns out to be only a O or a 1?

I am not a mathematician and I won’t and will never understand the beauty in those equations, thus I, together with my very sore fingers, would get very frustrated even after getting the correct answer.

Technology is so advance these days that sometimes it makes us forget about the simplest and the most basic things in life.

A simple smile can break an icy/awkward situation. 

A sincere ‘Hi’ or ‘Goodbye’ can resolve a misunderstanding.

A heartfelt handshake or hug can enhance a new-found relationship.

Life itself is really not a bed of (thorn-free) roses.

Roses have thorns but we don’t really need any fancy equipment to get rid of those thorns in order to make our bed of roses a thorn-free one.

A simple cutter will do the trick.

Rhino has a ball, have you lovely souls found that simple cutter of yours yet?

Thank you so much for reading this post.

Have a wonderful and thorn-free day ahead, always!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

A Forbidden Fruit?


CNCSI-1002

The apple tree was perhaps the earliest tree to be cultivated and its fruits have been improved through selection over thousands of years. The only apples native to North America are crab apples, which were once called “common apples”.

The flowers are white with a pink tinge that gradually fades, five petaled, and 2.5 to 3.5 centimetres (0.98 to 1.4 in) in diameter. The fruit matures in autumn, and is typically 5 to 9 centimetres (2.0 to 3.5 in) in diameter.

The center of the fruit contains five carpels arranged in a five-point star, each carpel containing one to three seeds, called pips.

Apples appear in many religious traditions, often as a mystical or forbidden fruit.

One of the problems identifying apples in religion, mythology and folktales is that the word “apple” was used as a generic term for all (foreign) fruit, other than berries, but including nuts, as late as the 17th century.

Though the forbidden fruit in the Book of Genesis is not identified, popular Christian tradition has held that it was an apple that Eve coaxed Adam to share with her.

In this case the unnamed fruit of Eden became an apple under the influence of story of the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides.

As a result, in the story of Adam and Eve, the apple became a symbol for knowledge, immortality, temptation, the fall of man into sin, and sin itself.

Apples are often eaten raw; except for the seeds, which are slightly poisonous, the whole fruit including the skin is suitable for human consumption but the core is often not eaten, leaving an apple core as a residue.

Extracts Taken From:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple  

Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.

Gifts Have Ribbons, Not Strings


Gifts have ribbons, not strings. 

Vanna Bonta

This is a holiday advice from Bonta essay “Ribbons vs. Strings” adapted to Christmas audio Tale “It’s the Gift That Counts” (Holiday Magic 2005 CD).

The above is an extract from Vanna Bonta’s Wikiquote Page.

So, do your gifts have ribbons or strings?

Well, for mine, they definitely have adhesive tapes on them… 😛

Hope you all  enjoy this quote.

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Peacocking and Weaseling


CNC-LN021-MAJESTIC-PEACOCK

Peacocking and weaseling may sound like strange terms when we’re talking about writing, but they should be understood if you’re on a quest to become a better writer.

Peacock and weasel terms are difficult to avoid, but once you learn what they are, and why they should be avoided, you’ll be able to spot them in your own writing.

PEACOCK TERMS

Peacock terms promote a subject without providing attribution and they are often used to grab a reader’s attention, but typically reflect an unqualified opinion.

Examples:

  • one of the most important
  • one of the best
  • the indisputable
  • outstanding
  • among the most notable

WEASEL TERMS

Like peacock terms, weasel words and phrases aim to create an impression that the writer wrote something meaningful and specific, when in fact only vague, general, and ambiguous information was claimed.

Weasel terms tend to promote the thought that something is widely accepted, whether it is or isn’t. Weasels are clever and guile mammals — so are weasel words. In fact, weasels are so sneaky, that their often mistaken for a rodent, rather than a mammal.

Examples:

  • Studies show… (What studies?)
  • Some argue…(Who argues?)
  • Critics say…(Ok, what critics?)
  • Is considered by many… (Great, but who?)

Peacock and weasel terms are difficult to avoid, but once you learn what they are, and why they should be avoided, you’ll be able to spot them in your own writing.

Peacock: O-H  M-Y  G-O-D!! See how your fur shines, it is as though you’ve diamonds embedded onto your body!

Weasel: Yeah~ I get that a lot from many other animals too…

Have fun reading!!
