We were told not to dwell in the past but sometime you cannot help yourself.
Lately I have been dwell in the past, my past. Since facebook has the feature of “Memories look back on today” from years ago. I was able to see what I did a few years ago.
“OH those happy moments!!!”
They seem so real but at the same time, just a memories. Where has it gone? And what happen?
Today about 2 yrs ago, as stated in my status post, “the handsome one and I went to lunch before we head out to wine tasting in Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg.”
It is bittersweet memory that I will forever cherish. I don’t know how he and I came to be the way we are. It’s been 9 months since we went our own way. I believed he has move on himself as I am allowing myself to move on too. Like they said “TIME” will heal the wound and give time, someone will come along and put all the broken piece together.
I am thankful for the experiences; to love, the memories, the many places we had travel and visit, and the lessons we have share with one another. I think that without it, I will not become the person I am.
As I mesmerize about my past, a part of me is sadden that two wonderful and amazing persons cannot work out their differences. And a part of me wish him well and that he will be love in the way that I was not able to do so to fulfil his happiness.
Like the saying goes… “If we are meant to be, faith will lead us back to be in each other’s arm again” in the future.
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.

Sometime we got so busy and tied with life that we negligence the important of each other. We forget how special our spouse, boyfriend or significant others are to us. We forget to be thankful of them for being in our life. We become unappreciated of them.
Reminisce the small details of your love for each other and live them daily without forgetting why you love and got married to the other person at the first place!

… love isn’t an emotion or even a noun. It’s a verb. Better defined as giving. As putting someone else’s needs above your own. – Popchassid

I agreed with Popchassid on the above statement. I believed that love is not only an emotion but also served as giving. We must be willingly to give more with nothing or less expected in return. As I got older and my ages kept increasing, my mind change with time. I also feel the same way — when we really love someone, we should not be afraid to put their needs above our own. When we can really do this, it is love. We wants the best for the other person, we want them to get what they wants and dream off. We want to be able to be their back bone and walk next to them through the rough time; ensuring that everything will be okay at the end of the tunnel.
Popchassid has a great article regards to L O V E. And how he was able to understand what love is in his own thought and mind; what it takes to really love a person when we said the word “I Love You.” As he mentioned in his article that those three words has been taken for granted at time and sometime we said them so often that we really don’t know if we really love the other person sincerely enough to know what L O V E really is.

One of the things I enjoy blogging is reblogging anything I see that caught my attention on the web. I reblog such thing as a self-reminder to myself for future reference to reflect back on. I happen to read this article “10 Things Extraordinary People Say Every Day” on Linkedin website a few days ago when I was fixing my information on my Linkedin profile.

As I was reading the article information, I find it to be very beneficial information to store for one to become a better person and also extraordinary successful if one is to apply the concept correctly to one benefit.
10 Things Extraordinary People Say Every Day
They’re small things, but each has the power to dramatically change someone’s day. Including yours.
Want to make a huge difference in someone’s life? Here are things you should say every day to your employees, colleagues, family members, friends, and everyone you care about:
“Here’s what I’m thinking.”
You’re in charge, but that doesn’t mean you’re smarter, savvier, or more insightful than everyone else. Back up your statements and decisions. Give reasons. Justify with logic, not with position or authority.
Though taking the time to explain your decisions opens those decisions up to discussion or criticism, it also opens up your decisions to improvement.
Authority can make you “right,” but collaboration makes everyone right–and makes everyone pull together.
