I am unique. I am myself and do the things I do because of me, not because of anyone else. If I ever find myself being displeased because of something I have done, I will realize that the behavior has to be changed by me and no one else. The only person that I can expect to do anything is myself.

I am one person and will take on the responsibilities of one person, not the rest of the world. I am capable of doing only what I am able to do and will not expect more.

I will respect others for being what they are, not for what they have. I will accept others for being themselves. I am superior to no one and no one is superior to me.(of course aside from God)

I will not let people run my life. My life is my own and I will treasure it for all it is worth. And it is worth everything.

I will be honest with myself and with others at all times. I will do the best I can in all aspects. I will try my hardest to accept all of my traits--good or bad.

I will respect my parents and give them all the love they deserve, which is a whole lot. I will try to accept their ideas and listen to them open-mindedly, even if I don't agree. I will explain to them why I believe in the things I do and ask them to accept me with those beliefs. I will cherish them always.

I will treat others as I want to be treated. I will listen to others' ideas and respect their opinions, even if I'm in disagreement.

My goal in life is to be happy to the best of my abilities. I am me and I am real. I will live my life as the real me.

a beautiful sunnyday!!!

Everything now is just seems so happy, the birds are chirping, children are playing,and i see a lot of people walking, such a nice sight. The air now is not so cold, just moderate enough to make you feel comfy. I love this feeling, so heart warming and bright. It feels good to just sit back and relax and feel the perfection of the atmosphere around.

This is another ordinary day of my life. I just can't think of anything to do right now.It feels good when you have shared what you have inside, even if it means that you'll just be talking to no one but yourself.

It's been so cloudy today..and everything just look so sad..I loathe days like this.It made me feel that everything is just down and desolate. It's in these days you'll never know if it will gonna rain or the sun may shine.

So..i'm thinking of a lot of things to do today!!!hmmm..let me may be best time to clean the bathroom so that i may never see the clouds outside..wash our clothes so i'll be departed from the outdoor view,and perhaps iron the clothes so i may feel its warmth. got it!!best ideas may come out from the most negative circumstances...and these may be true in the wider perspective of our lives. In most melancholic times of our life...great opportunities may come.

I think, by now,I should not loathe cloudy days..for in these days that great chances may come.=)

frutti di mare

Speaking of cooking..i'm not really good into it......but i'm learning. I know now few pasta dishes....hmm.. I feel like i'm in the Italian resto and savoring the aroma and taste of real pasta!! Frutti di mare is one of my favorites..the calamari,shrimp and the mussels make it more palatable to me.hmmmm...yum..yum.

Here's the recipe:

So easy yet so tasty. I just love pasta. This made me inspired to learn more pasta dishes..and enjoy it.Its actually best to learn this things if you really love this..aside from you can save pennys for it and time as well in finding a right restaurant.I would love to learn more...=)

my free time

I can't help but think the time I was still working.I always look forward to have my free time and be able to relax.And now almost everyday seems to be my free time.Im just at home and now i realize that I wanted to do something and be free from my free time.sounds confusing..but it really is.

However,it made me think that this time could be a great opportunity for me to explore my interest. I love a lot of things..baking, cooking, singing, gardening, writing stories and a lot more.For the many things I thought,I still never pick any of this things to do during my freeeee time. I wonder actually whats wrong with me and why not start doing something.It is then I realize that little did I know..enjoying the little things i do cooking for my lovey dovey,baking some muffins,watering my little plants..I'm actually starting to explore things ...and these things where not the interest that my head told me but the things that make me happy.

I now agree that boredom is a state of mind and its when you stop appreciating the things around you.Being alone and be quite for sometime made me talk to myself and say..this is the life that i want..and thanks God im now living it.

Springtime has finally arrive. This is the season i've long waited for where i can see more growing plants.The place has finally has its color from the snowy white to kaleidoscopic colors around. To be with beautiful flowers feels like so fresh and pretty.Sometimes if i just stare around and watch as the flowers are swayed by the wind..seems like its beauty was mine.Also In this season, you can find children in the playground joyfully enjoying the light rays of the sun.This is the season where you can really find the life of living, a picture painted a smile and excitement in every face.

Balcony now is my best place. Staying outside while reading a good book could really make the whole day worthwhile. Just being with nature really can wipe out boredom,stress and impediments of a having a relaxed and refreshing day.

Bicycle is the next best thing i always thought.We now can go to many places around with this little helper.To the lake,where it always brings peace and serenity.Of course seeing families around,the delicious smoke of grilling sausages,and the beautiful ladies around wearing their sexy spring suits.It reminds me to get some exercise..physical fitness?huh!!

At the end of the day..I can always thank God for the wonder of nature. His love for us is explicitly shown by all of this wonderful things around....and thanks for the springtime! Posted by Hello
