Sarabande - In Unison

Beautiful as the Melody, Paced out as Choreographed, Synchronized to the Beat... Fast or Slow, it's in Unison

Can we use defintion of success as the purpose?

We each define success in different terms in many ways. Being a higher chunk person, I quite like the below definition.

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation or honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Holding my beliefs, taking my path, moving forward in my way of success.

Head Over Heels

Many events that caught us by surprise made us fell head over heels.

Well again, maybe not really many. Perhaps just a few. When was that for you?

Precisely, it made you fell, that's why you have the very reason to pick yourself up again and move forward. I guess the best part is when you look back at the thing that made you fell head over heels, you can smile at it knowingly and appreciate that it had made you went head over heels.

Seems like I'm talking about a difficult obstacle, a trip in life. Am I?

Ha ha, as the person I am, it's natural (NOT meaning to say I'm good ) for me to form perspectives about my or other people's experiences. Presenting multiple sides of coins to myself as well as to others.

Having multiple perspectives have unknowningly create self-awareness for me, but guess each of us have our own blind spot. :-P

The very reason why I writing this post is to say we can fall head over heels over someone. Yes, a crush! I can't beat this article. I found my blind spot and it creates a whole new paradigm.

So, when's the last time you fell head over heels? Have you learn to appreciate it?

Today I learnt a new word: Soporific.

As from dictionary,

soporific \sop-uh-RIF-ik; soh-puh-\, adjective:
1. Causing sleep; tending to cause sleep.
2. Of, relating to, or characterized by sleepiness or lethargy.

A medicine, drug, plant, or other agent that has the quality of inducing sleep; a narcotic.

This word is most apt at describing what I need now.

After all the late nights (or should I say very early mornings) of drowning in tons of readings, I couldn't sleep a wink at the supposedly correct timings and I get sleepy under the bright lights. That's why, I need anything that creates the soporific effects on me so that I can sleep peacefully. Yeah, peaceful & satisfying looooong sleep.

Everyday Can Be a new day

I sometimes wonder if a person has no purpose, does it mean that he/she cannot have a happy life? Must everything has a purpose? While searching for the purpose, many lost themselves.

For me, the search for a purpose itself can be a purpose. The reason being I'm not looking for definite answers or a definite purpose. I'm just expanding my knowledge about how I better fit into this world at this age of rapid globalization. In another sense, some of you will see it as I'm just slacking, bumping around, passing the days.

I do love to wake up everyday and know that there is tomorrow. Even in the darkest hour, without a purpose, a new day still come.

Celine Dion – A New Day Has Come

"A new day has...come

I was waiting for so long
For a miracle to come
Everyone told me to be strong
Hold on and don't shed a tear

Through the darkness and good times
I knew I'd make it through
And the world thought I had it all
But I was waiting for you

Hush, love

I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love
Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun
A new day has...come"

This song sings about her baby, a new life of another that brings a new day to someone else. And the song sings of faith too. Faith in yourself, to believe that the new day will come.

My Declaration of Self-Esteem

My Declaration of Self-Esteem

by Virginia Satir


In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me
Everything that comes out of me is authentically me
Because I alone chose it - I own everything about me
My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
Whether they be to others or to myself - I own my fanatasies,
My dreams, my hopes, my fears - I own all my triumphs and
Successes, all my failures and mistakes Because I own all of
Me, I can become intimately acquainted with me - by so doing
I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts - I know
There are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other
Aspects that I do not know - but as long as I am
Friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously
And hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles
And for ways to find out more about me - However I
Look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever
I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically
Me - If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought
And felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is
Unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that
Which I discarded - I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do
I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be
Productive to make sense and order out of the world of
People and things outside of me - I own me, and
therefore I can engineer me - I am me and
