"Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for your convenience, not the callers. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. Don’t forget, a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don’t major in minor things. Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. Don’t spread yourself too thin. Learn to say no politely and quickly. Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Don’t waste time grieving over past mistakes Learn from them and move on. Every person needs to have their moment in the sun, when they raise their arms in victory, knowing that on this day, at his hour, they were at their very best. Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed, ‘Gee, if I’d only spent more time at the office’. Give people a second chance, but not a third. Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health and love. Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly. Leave everything a little better than you found it. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life and death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems. Never cut what can be untied. Never overestimate your power to change others. Never underestimate your power to change yourself. Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years. Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do. Seek opportunity, not security. A boat in harbor is safe, but in time its bottom will rot out. Spend less time worrying who’s right, more time deciding what’s right. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. Success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get. The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it. When facing a difficult task, act as though it’s impossible to fail."

As bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
I thank God I didn’t get what I thought that I deserved
will this be my last epilogue?
i know I can’t place my heart to someone who lives in a fantasy world. Who’s unsure, confuse, undecided and indefinite.
After those moments of silence, without getting a text or even texting back, ‘twas really the time for me to think, if this is what I want in my life, uncertainty? In my situation, I no longer need to play games. It’s like I am dead serious with my life. To be in a ‘happy ever after’ would be the lease fairy tale I would like to be in.
And now its my turn to be confuse, do I really want this? do I have to endure the same inflicting pain again and again? If I do, will it still be the same way as it started? If I don’t, then where do I start to pick up the pieces?
a shallow ending…
it starts with another hello from the past, fell in love and thought about a happy ending. going through with a risk, gave almost all effort just to make it work. yet fell apart because of a simple misunderstanding. guess life’s like this, we end up believing then disappointed, and its true, never expect coz it would lead to frustration. Goodbye to my superficial love affair, goodbye to the one who broke my heart.
