Never Judge a Book By Its Cover...

Why this advice ever existed in the first place? why do we need this advice? "Never judge a book by its cover" has been in this world before 20th century. You can find the link here for your reference ('t_judge_a_book_by_its_cover ) 

This proved to me that human nature never changed much except our lifestyle and environment. I wanted to touch this subject because this one has been on my mind for so long that i wanted to pour it all out in here. The difference is that todays deception is much more advance than 20 or 50 years ago that we are told to have this need to do more inspections, prayers and patience and not forgetting all the advice we can get. Im not saying we should neglect our hygiene; we need to appear clean and approachable so that we can gain trust from strangers. I suggest that what we should do is to be more balanced.

This idiom practically applied to all aspects of our life and to all walks of life even to the point of relationships between man and woman. A healthy relationships is vital to our life as it will enrich our wisdoms, experience and the way we approach life. For a christian, asking for Gods wisdom for discernment is equally important for life changing decisions such as marriage, divorce and career. Nobody said that it will be easy to have this discernment but we learn while we grow right? :)

All that is gold does not glitter;
all that is long does not last;
All that is old does not wither;
not all that is over is past

Bear Counter

I've started this blog with a picture in my mind about a person having all the basic necessities in life just like the song i know from the Disney's Jungleboy "Bear necessities". The theme is actually stemmed from my own experienced that we dont really need all those that we have now like flat screen, modern mobile phone or sport car... if we think carefully we can actually live without all that but im not saying that its wrong to have all those luxuries, we can work hard to achieve all that modern appliances. Its just that if we are too focus or worked 24 hours a day without rest i think its not worth it.

Our life didnt depend on it, our happiness didnt depends on these luxuries. I mean what if we all have that but then our joy of  living simple is stripped away and suddenly peace is such a strange words that we feel like we have minutes only to achieve all that dreams? What will you do when you  wake up to face another nightmare in which its not a dream but a reality? what will you do? Im not against those whose dreams are to achieve these and i dont want to start an uproar with diligent workers out there because i,myself love to have these wonderful things... its just that if i need to sacrifice my life just for these gadgets I have to say no.

Maybe Im not cut out to live my life like that or i dont have those passion like them but i will live a decent life enough for my family to get by and IF God sees it fit to bless me more than before then Im happy to accept it.

Unending lessons from life... a precious experience

I learn previously that what is free in life we have to take it slowly and dont take for granted. It is free right, so dont rush. It is not right to push something that is not your own effort and tried to take it like its yours when it is not! I've met with this kind of people and it is truly tiring to be with them but i did tried to do what is best to me and for them but its TiRiNg !! and stressful also... I felt like im in one of my nightmare yet this is not just a dream, its a reality. Perhaps i was naive or never met this kind of situation but now i know how to appreciate good life and still making the best of it. The best i could to wake up from this is RuN !! God knows how i wanted to escape from this, and one thing that keeps popping out from my mind is just run. Maybe this action will make me look like a coward but this have helped me a lot while i tried to clear my mind and gather again all my strength and all my wit. This experience helped me a lot to determine when is really right to push and when is not,everything has its time like when its time for flower to bloom it will bloom.. I cannot make it bloom if its not the right season and its the same also in my experience. I will face them again at the right time and at the right place, so at the mean time I will use my free time to evaluate everything and mantained my sanity for my own sake. 

Well, now you read my past how about you? have you faced with the same situation? any idea other than running? :) thanks for sharing, God Bless You
