[1: 1,769 of 10,000] BE Gentle

In Aphorism on July 30, 2016 at 11:53 PM

Be gentle

Man can be mean in some certain chaotic circumstances…
But if there’s a choice to be gentle, then be.

We can be honest, we can be blunt…
But if we can deliver it gently, then let it be.

We are made out of love and may we have the audacity to use it.


[1: 1,555 of 10,000] Irony At Its Best

In Article on August 11, 2015 at 11:59 PM


In every situation, I can find a suitable quote. It is even funny that one positive quote will have an opposite quote that completely defy one another but both on its own are leaning to a positive wisdom, like the one below:

“Absence make the heart grow fonder.”

“Out of sight, out of mind.”

So what’s going on here? Is the above quote the truest wisdom or is it the one below? Are they both correct?

This goes to show that we can decide which wisdom to follow. We hold the decision for our next move. We are capable of choosing. This is what we’ve called the silver lining. Picking the good lesson to give us the will to keep moving foward positively.

What’s your favourite irony?

[1: 1,317 of 10,000] The Secret of “No Regret”

In Aphorism on May 16, 2014 at 5:43 PM

The secret of “no regret” is to live responsibly and with all your best at all times.

I don’t have regrets.

I know that I have lived my life with the best of my ability.

I know that I shall live even more with not settling so as long as I breathe, I shall love, get really scared, make mistakes, learn, and achieve that longing of fulfilment.

I don’t like to just live but would always strive for a meaningful life.

I know inside my heart that I am special and so is each of us and I couldn’t put it out clearly for history to recognise but I am sure each of us will find out and most hopefully live it out.


[1: 1,282 of 10,000] August: Osage County on Future

‘Thank God we can’t tell the future. We’d never get out of bed.’
~August: Osage County


It is easy to be comfortable. To repeat the exact same life all over even if it is supposed to be a different day. Tracy Letts was actually right in saying not knowing the future should be a perfect enough reason that we get up and find out what in store for us or what are we supposed to create. We should not wait for the right timing to start a marvellous shift because every morning that the sun rises it gives a restart no matter how busted you think your life is.

I am obsessed in knowing the future. I am desperate to find assurance that I would be fine. I am looking for the window that whatever excruciating madness I am in is just temporary. Hearing Tracy’s words, it is encouraging me to be brave to live in the present. I once laid out plans for 5 years and honestly it made be squirmed of boredom; thinking so this is it? I know exactly how I’d turn out? I probably laid out the wrong plan, or it wasn’t meaningful enough!!

It should be comforting that we can live a life that we want if we really really want it so badly. It should be more than enough comfort too that God will always be there every single step, watching, guiding, directing, and definitely letting us fall to learn to get up gracefully. Life is full of wonders, let us stop and witness it and be part of making it.

What are you thanking God for that you don’t know now? Me, my current broken heart, and how it’ll get fixed may be one day.

[1: 1,037 of 10,000] Life is like a Piano

In Aphorism, Article on June 1, 2013 at 12:00 AM

The moment the clock strikes 12:00 I am officially 33 years old.

I like 2 so having a double 3 is quite a good omen for me. It could be the best birthday ever. I believe it so.

32 years of living taught me that life is like Piano Keys.

Keyboard Keys Close Up

  • Life can be simply black and white. No blur about truth and lie.
  • Black keys represent the challenges that pop up every once in a while but great white things outnumbered the black ones if blessings are truly counted.
  • The true essence of a man is the melody that comes out from the keys, his soul, his deeds, and his legacy.
  • Man isn’t born knowing how to play but able to press any key and later play the right rhythm.

I continue to learn and I continue to believe that life is good. Thank you God for loving me, that keeps me going.
