No one can go back and make a brand new start.

Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

Disappointments are like road humps, they slow you down a bit but you enjoy the smooth road afterwards.

Don't stay on the humps too long.

Move on!

When you feel down because you didn't get what you want, just sit tight and be happy, because God is thinking of something better to give you.

When something happens to you, good or bad, consider what it means ....

There's a purpose to life's events, to teach you how to laugh more or not to cry too hard.

You can't make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved, the rest is up to the person
to realise your worth.

The measure of love is when you love without measure.

In life there are very rare chances that you'll meet the person you love and loves you in return.

So once you have it don't ever let go, the chance might never come your way again.

It's better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride.

We spend too much time looking for the right person to love or finding fault with those we already love, when instead we should be perfecting the love we give.

When you truly care for someone, you don't look for faults, you don't look for answers, you don't look for mistakes.

Instead, you fight the mistakes, you accept the faults, and you overlook the excuses.

Never abandon an old friend.You will never find one who can take his place. Friendship is like wine, it gets better as it grows older.

very nice D'ruby smile
I take this point:

"When you feel down because you didn't get what you want, just sit tight and be happy, because God is thinking of something better to give you."

it's happened to me frown I had exprienced hard times in my life, failure in job application; I didnt find a job that really I wannit and relationship failure; I broke with someone that I loved it's because we're "different" honestly I tell you, I wasn't easy for me! I took it badly and bitterly, and said: why me??? I felt into an emotional hell. I could really feel my heart aching, I couldn't sleep well sick

till, I found this one:

MOST RICHLY BLESSED
Sometimes I wonder when things go so wrong
Has God forsaken and left me alone?
Then I remember through trials and distress
He's always with me
I'm most richly blessed

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve,
I was made weak, that I might learn bumbly to obey,
I asked for health, that I might do greater things,
I asked for riches, that I might be happy,
I was given poverty, that I might be wise

I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life,
I got nothing that I asked for - but everything that I bad hoped for, and almsot despite myself,
my unspoken prayers were answered.
He's always with me,
I'm most richly blessed


It's not only words but I took the point from those words and I tried to look at myself, count all the blessing that I have and compare myself with somebody else that unlucky enough...

whatever happened to me, it doesn't mean God has abandoned me but He has a better IDEA

see now, He sent me a wonderful boss but sometimes annoying wink
He sent me a nice boyfriend but sometimes he's also annoying me wink

well, I have long journey still..I don't wanna stuck here in Jalan Jaksa laugh
