50 days more to go.

Looking far away
My dreams become fuzzy, I'm standing lost
I have nothing now
Although I want to give it all up and start anew
Though I want to give up, I will stand up again
Let's move carefully, step by step
Filled with excitement and fear

Don't tell me that it will end just like that?
Although my hesitation is caused by fear
Deep inside my heart
There is an echo that keeps me moving forward
Step by step, I will move forward carefully
Just like what I am doing today
Filled with excitement and fear

Even if I stumble and fall, I will still move
One step forward
When will I face my dream?
Step by step, I will move forward carefully
Just like today
Filled with with excitement and fear
Eventhough staggering and swaying, I will take that step
When will we meet?
I'm looking torwards my dream
When can we meet?
I look torwards my dream.

ps: 50 days more to go.still counting and counting.......

Live on!

"Believe and Act as if it were impossible to fail.."

"If You can Dream it,
You can Do it.."

"When odds are One in a million,
be that One.."

"First say to yourself what you would be;
and then do what you have to do.."

"When you feel like giving up,
remember why you held on for so long in the first place.."

"Above all, challenge yourself!
You may well surprise yourself at what strength you have,
what you can accomplish.."

I am blind

A young blind girl, too young to be worrying about things that matter, placed herself strategically by the foot of the escalators going up from the train platforms. A battered plastic bag lay beside her feet and she held up a sign which said : "I am blind, please help"

A man walked by. Despite the morning rush, he stepped aside unhesitatingly, fished his pockets for coins and dropped them into the bag. Strangely, instead of returning to the crowd, he took the sign, turned it around, and wrote something else. He then handed back the sign with the new words to the blind girl.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind girl. At the end of the day, the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were keeping up with the girl he encountered earlier that morning. The girl recognized his footsteps and asked,
"Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?"

The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way."

What he had written was:
"Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it."

Dear friends,

The first sign merely stated that the girl is blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind and presented them with many more reasons to search within themselves for the things that they should be grateful to God for.

Don't put off gratitude, for the time to express it may not be ample.
