Look hard

Sometimes the best things in life are not so visible.
Sometimes you have to look harder to find them.
Sometimes it's the small thing that counts, and not the big thing as you expect.
Sometimes it may even seem that you don't have anything good going on in your life.
But when you really look and look harder to find those good things, you will find them.

It's not how many friends you have that matters,
but how many real friend you really have.
Even one real friend would be a blessing these days.

It's not whether you have a beautiful big house that matters,
but whether you have a home to come home to.
One home sweet home is really a blessing nowadays.

It's not whether you got a family made of a mom, dad, brother, and sister living all together,
but whether you have their love even when you are not all together.
Love from a distance would count as a blessing too.

So really... look hard, and count your blessings.


Need a boost!

I sat in front of my monitor so many times in the last few months, and could not get anything written for my blog. Life has been boring for me. It all has been just a routine day in and day out. Waking up, taking my kid to school, cleaning up, picking my kid from school, bla bla bla... go to sleep. I'm trying to find the spirit to do things, but it seems to be disappeared into thin air... I feel like I want to move somewhere new, maybe US, Canada, or Australia, to start a new life over again. I want to actually get a job and make money for myself and my kid and just start over... But every time I go to the immigration website and check the requirements to immigrate to one of those countries, it feels like it would never happen. It's so hard to immigrate nowadays. So many rules, so many requirements, and I'm just not sure I'm up to it. What do I do? I know it's not right to wait for things to happen in my life. I should make things happen in my life, right? Aaahhh, why things have to be so damn hard?


Just a striking wonderful quote

"When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go.
Only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He'll catch you when you fall, or He'll teach you how to fly!"

God bless you.


the little things

When someone is nice to you constantly, it is easy to take that person for granted. I know this totally depends on who you are, but really, when we receive kindness from someone who is inherently and constantly a good person, it is soooo easy to forget to be grateful to his/her acts of kindness. We are more aware of the less often act of kindness, received from people who don't do it so often.

I was reminded with this fact few days ago. Just for an example: my mom is a very nice person and one of the most patient person I know. I often asked her to watch my 4 year old when I had to go out or had to do some work. It may seem small or insignificant, but I find that her baby-sitting, or I should say toddler-sitting, is very helpful for me. I don't trust anyone else can watch my little girl as careful as my mom does.

My mom is always there, ready to help anytime I need her, in everything I may need. I also has a friend who is always there to listen when I need someone to talk to.
I feel grateful that I still have them in my life; around and always there for me.

They don't do big things, but I believe, it's the little things they do that really count. So I encourage anyone who's reading this, think about the little things that your family/friends do for you lately, and ask yourself, have you thanked them yet?
