Foods for the Soul:

When you say “I love you” it means “I can offer you true peace and happiness”. In order to be able to offer them, you must already be able to offer them to yourself.

Affirmation of the DAY!

This is my affirmation of the day. Recently I have been rough on myself or rough on the relationships I have with others. I know that it feel great to be in control but sometime when we try to control too much of the relationship, we fail to acknowledge the other person in the relationship; whether the relationship is with a love one, your parents, siblings or friends.

For me, I think I have a fear of being imperfect. I strive so hard and challenge myself daily to be the best I can be. I feel that I have no excuse to be the best I can be. I have high expectation for myself and those around me. I know that I am not near prefect but it doesn’t hard to try. Then problem occurred for misunderstanding when others failed to live up to my expectation because excuse were not acceptable.

I also failed to acknowledge that each person function differently. My expectation is different from others and so are theirs from mine. I constantly remind myself of this but sometime, when your emotion kick in then nothing make sense and no logic at all will help under emotionally stress.

It is a challenge to understand peoples’ difference at time. When one person is in their defense mode, no matter how you willing to communicate to them, there is no chance of getting through to them at all.

As the quoted stated above, I needs to stop trying to control relationships and just learn to let it go, let it be… entrusted that everything will work out on it’s own and just fulfill my part.

 

All Good Things

Rhinda Byrne said that we deserve all good things life has to offer …

However, sometime I feel like all good things life has to offer, sometime, is taking away from us and seem like we don’t deserve all good things that life has to offer.

I said that because… as you have known, mother’s day has just pass yesterday. It’s been 7 long years since my mother is gone but every mother’s day, I am drowning in sadness because I wish she was here to share the special day with. It is a challenge each year for me.

I realize that I am feeling so much sadness after quite some year has pass because I haven’t really move on. I was afraid of losing sight of her; the image of her; a sense of no longer connecting to her. I was told by siblings and others that it is okay to let go and move on; as she will always be a part of me. Is it really true?

I know it will always be a challenge for me; even when I move on, because the only person that was irreplaceable is not here. I am slowly moving on at my own pace. While I reflected back to those moments we both had shared, and the future of what I will be missing, I am truly bless to have her for 21 years of my life.

Going back to Rhonda’s quote. I think that she is somewhat right. However, sometime all good things doesn’t mean we will have them with us. Good things happen after it’s been taken away from us. I think that without the death of my mother’s, I will not be able to see life the way I have now. I will not learn to appreciated the role of others who play a part in my life or have came into my life; whether they decided to stay in my life or not. She open my eyes to all the good things in life; with meaning.

The truth is… you deserve all good things life has to offer … and … how you make of the good or bad, it is the meaning you live by that makes your life worth living.

I am proud to be your daughter and glad to have a mother’s like you. Happy Mother’s Day, MOM!

 

 

 

Love Quotes | Wiang Roy Dao

 

Wiang Roy Dao

Wiang Roy Dao ( Thai Lakorn)

 

I finished watching Wiang Roy Dao last week and  it was a movie of love, hates and revenge as well as forgiveness. I had written a few love quotes or wisdom words down from the movie. The quotes were spoken from the Actor’s aunt.

I quoted them because “LOVE’ is such an incredible thing in the human life and there are so many endlessly lesson to learn. The aunt’s words were wisdom to my ear and I just have to have it down to served as a simple reminder to me.

“Love is between two people. If our hearts tell us that we love them for real, then we don’t need to be afraid of what other people will think. “ ~  Khun Chai’s Aunty  from Wiang Roy Dao, Thai Lakorn

“Love has no boundaries. No ethnics, no social classes. No races, no status. If you think of loving someone, you must forget about all the conditions. And be truthful to your own heart.”

“Someone you miss when you don’t see her. Or when she’s with someone else, it hurts in your heart. That person is the right one.”

“Marriage life is being together with understanding between two people. Not enduring each other.”
