It has not happen...breathe.
If you are currently reminiscing the past,
It has long gone happened...breathe.
Breathe, my friend, what's happening now?
Find your self moving inwardly,
Stay with the now...breathe.

Drawing inspired by the lyrics below

|"Every cloud has a silver lining"|
Art is not money, art is the soul, and money is abundance. So, if I allow myself to fall in love with my work and believe in it, abundance will always come naturally.
I recently got promoted at work. I am still trying to get use to the feeling of getting promoted because honestly, I have never gotten an incredible achievement ever throughout my whole working life. My promotion was unlike others, who was recognized by their bosses, etc. For me, it was entirely different- I seized the opportunity when opportunity was there for me waiting to be seized! And after all that has happened, after much thought, I realized that it is the same thing for abundance. To me, abundance (or money, whichever you might want to call it) is not something that would fall from the sky when you put out your hands.
My two cents on Abundance:
- An opportunity
- An opportunity has to be seized as it would not come knocking on your door.
- Instead, we knock on its door by believing & loving ourselves and our work, for it is magic.
- And magic can only happen when you believe in it.

Whenever I meet a good friend over a meal, being girls as we are, we would engage in topics, and most of the time are really enlightening ones. Sometimes about life, about relationships, about work... and whether the other person across the table realizes or not, but I noticed that each time I have a conversation with a friend, I leave the table thinking. And here I realized that when engaging in a conversation, it is the most insightful energy shared between friends. You learned something each time, and that means the words you share are so important because it could just change lives so easily. Here i have also learned that living in the now would help exchange wisdom. Perhaps maybe your friend's life could change after that.
*Dedicated to a special friend, whom I'd like to call my little sister- Michelle Teng. Who helped me to help each other grow wiser together each day into womanhood. My heart also goes out to my other girl friends; we have touched each other's lives each time we meet over lunch.

I have often wondered to myself, if given a hypothetical scenario; would it be natural if I confront a person who is causing trouble to others, or if I approach a person who is in trouble without the person requesting for help?...or would it be unnatural if I just be and observe from afar and not interfering with what ever that is going on in that person's space?...I have often reminded myself this, whether I may be right or not, that if I approach the person causing or experiencing trouble, I think that I might be interfering with the natural experience the person might be experiencing. And since there is much more cause and effect rather than right or not, I probably would be altering the effect of the experience one is encountering or need to encounter if I do step in. So, question here is, would it be cruel to not take action when you witness a trouble? Still, in our complicated human world, some feel the need to do something about it because they feel a sense of protectiveness or responsibility. Some were also told to be ignorants for not doing something bout it. Nonetheless, it would be necessary to always check with our intentions first before we proceed to take the next step. Perhaps that must've been how the phrase begun "it's not my place to speak or do..." because really...sometimes the best thing to do is to just be.
To attempt not feeling hurt inwardly, is to blame the outside. Yet, to blame the outside, would also mean failing to work inwardly. Failing to work inwardly would lead to feeling hurt within again. The answer would probably be best to understand the cause of the situation, and effect from the cause. Thus, working inwardly and outwardly, then to just let it go with forgiveness, and to just be, with love.

To offer your other cheek to be slapped is not giving in, but metaphorically means to offer loving-kindness continuously with understanding & awareness to the one who is unaware; to put an end to a vicious cycle so that it would not continue to propel into another negative experience again and again. -SL. 13.06.12

After Evanescence (something light for myself), after Korn (something both my soulmate and i share) and now Arch Enemy; i am glad to have this chance to be able to meet them. And i think it is great that there are companies who are bringing in various talented metal and rock bands as such. I think the moment here i would like to savor is that i am able to share this moment with my soulmate. Something we both have been listening to for past 5 years. He opened the doors to music for me..
Being there last night, standing in front of the stage (awesome view), i tried to take it every single moment of it, enjoying every bit of it. These are the little things in life i would like to remember always.. being in the moment.. The best part is, knowing that there are bands with lyrics that share the same views about one self.

Sometimes the smallest things in life happens to be one of the most important realization.
You see, I have a DVD player that is not able to read DVDs well unless they are original copies. It gets old because it demotivates me to watch a good ol movie while I do my chores. Time and time again I remind myself that I have a standby player which I can easily hook it up and my problem would be solved. But of course, comes the procrastination. My mind starts to give excuses like, oh but the current machine is of sentimental value or cant move the tv to plug the wires..etc. Eventually, I let these thoughts govern over me and I dared complained about the machine failing me.. Also not realising that I was being irresponsible of my own actions.
So here I am trying to play a movie again, trying to on and off it until it reads the DVD.. But this time, I though to myself, how long am I going to go through this procrastination when all I have to do is just take a little effort to try and hook up the new player instead.
A new found realization came through and I realised, I only thought it's hard because I gave myself excuses.. Not realizing that I let these excuses or negativity be part of me to stop me from being able to enjoy the little things in life.
Now, I am eager to make the switch :-) moral of the story is don't say I can't before I can.

Nothing but just a frame,
frame until I am formed.
However, I still exist,
Before I am formed,
colours and sizes,
and other intricate elements.

and I took the one less travelled by.
And that has made all the difference.
When I was 16 years old back in secondary school, i remember learning Robert Frost poems in my English literature class. I always felt that the poem (above) was inspiring, little did i know that it had so many meanings on various levels. I downloaded a Cognitive Behaviour Diary App today, when i launched the app, there i saw the familiar stanza.
Reading the stanza brought back a flash of memories, incidents and automatically the mind tries to match to the meaning of the poem like a jigsaw puzzle, and i ended up relating to the poems with my past experiences. But one particular passing thought caught my attention; it was that everyday we are given the choice to choose and that choice would lead us to various scenarios, conclusions, consequences. Everyday we change and renew ourselves mentally and emotionally. And how do we change it is how we face these daily "choices" in our own way. These choices are priceless journeys, an alone journey but not lonely. Where i am today, is the result of a route i took yesterday, and yesterday's journey was a route i decided upon the day before that. Somewhere along, what i said to someone was a route i chose, and how the person felt or how i was left to feel or thought, was based on a chosen route before that...
The journey of the road travelled is simply a paradox one... how interesting. There are no which road is the correct one or not.. it is basically just what happens after that.
The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-- I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

How strange it is we tend to get affected in another person's negativity when the other person is expressing from his/her own space. How strange it is that we tend to "butt in" or get "sucked in"...
And we forget that it is not our space at all to intervene.
If we remember this, surely it would be easier to feel inspired or motivated to create something be it a piece of art, a song, an article, etc. If we remember this, surely we would not be cowardice or feel deprived of happiness when our minds "thought" that we are being neglected, cast out or left out.
What a strange experience...
a question or an idea to ponder on.
surely it is just an idea, a thought and be affected at someone else's words, opinion, perception of how you are or something you did or do or done.

|Are you an Earth Angel?!(based on "Earth Angels" & Realms of the Earth Angels by Doreen Virtue Ph.D.)|
Incarnated Angels - they are the ones, who elect their entire lives in human body... Incarnated Angels like rules, they obey them and get angry at people who don't follow the rules. They tend to be serious and polite, and would be comfortable working in windowless buildings. They have difficulty saying "no" and feel guilty when others help them. If you are an Incarnated Angel:*wait before saying "yes"*shield yourself with energy and Light, especially before helping someone*Replace the apology habit with positive affirmation*Balance your giving and receiving*Accept good graciously*Play
