Waking Up

October 20, 2007

I wake up today with a great joy, knowing that this is a brand new day for me.  This day will be another day of exploring opportunities and of realizing dreams.

I love the sweet smell of dawn – our unique daily opportunity to smell time, to smell opportunity – each morning being, a new beginning.” These were the words of  Emme Woodhull-Bache and yes, each new morning is indeed a new beginning.

And one of the most rewarding mornings is to find yourself at your best the moment you open your eyes, with a smile in your lips, and looking forward to rest of the day with pride and joy in your heart.

 One of the best moments in my life is to open my eyes in the morning

Knowing that I am still alive and has the opportunity to be a worthy being

Yesterday was a thing of the past and each morning is a brand new day

Where I am given the opportunity to live my life with such a great liberty. 

I could not be thankful enough for each and every morning

Where the good heaven continues to shower even with its littlest blessing

The day ahead may offer challenges and tough situations

But with a great morning, challenges are embraced with no reservations. 

Hibernate

October 20, 2007

I literally hibernated for such a long, long time for reasons I can’t comprehend likewise.  After my first two posts, I simply stopped posting.  And it is almost a year before I opened this site again.

Well, I have had a lot of time trying to sort and think things over.  Almost a year of hibernation is such a luxury of time.  And here I am once again.

I slept for almost an eternity

A kind of opulence, indeed an opportunity

I slept and withdraw myself from the world

I keep my stories, leaving them untold. 

A year of silence, a year of discovery

I found a lot of things, I found the real me

I found that my world is not mine all along

I have to share it, to the world it should belong. 

And here I am once more

Tracing my foot steps to a distant shore

The waves are calling, they are singing

Let them quench the thirst of this lonely being.

First step

November 3, 2006

“The two important things I did learn were that you are as powerful and strong as you allow yourself to be, and that the most difficult part of any task is taking the first step, making the first decision.” – Robyn Davidson

So how do you consider your first step? Are you more of an optimist or a pessimist, a go getter or an opportunist?

According to Ben Stein, “The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want.”  And the big question is, “What you do really want in this life?”

At times, indecision enters the picture

When you are in doubt and unsure

So many things to consider

Some wise moves to ponder.

What if things will be out of their way

What if everything will be of great dismay

How will you face life when failure comes

How will you pacify a mind full of qualms.

Yes, a first step must be taken

You cannot afford to be forsaken

The path that you choose to follow

Will dictate the real man in you.

Voltaire, a noted French philosopher and writer, once said: “The first step, my son, which one makes in the world, is the one on which depends the rest of our days.”  The very first step that we take, dictates our character as well as our desire that will be unfolded in the coming days of our lives.

There is always a first time

November 2, 2006

Yes, there is always a first time.  I am still skeptical about the things I am going to post but nevertheless, this very first step must be conquered first.

hugs to a newbie

The very experience can be an awakening

Though excited, it can also be frightening

My heart beats so fast, lots of things enter my mind

I can see clearly but it seems that I am blind.

It seems that I am like a child

Inexperienced but eager to see the wild

I set my eyes on the distant horizon

My fantasies serve as an endearing vision.

And as I set my foot to its very first step

I know there is no turning back and weep

And as I journey towards the unknown

I’ll gladly embrace the challenge to its full blown.

i wonder what’s out there?

 And as my feet take their first few steps, I slowly gather all the strength deep within me.  I am full of hope and excitement in venturing towards a new ground.  I may have my inhibitions but then, let tomorrow worry for itself.
