Read And You Will Know...

I came across an email and found that this one is meaningful so I want to share with everyone.

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.
The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.
One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.
Days, weeks and months passed.
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.
It faced a blank wall.

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, 'Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.'

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.
Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.
If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.

Music Rocksz!!

The 3rd post for this year but this time is in happy mode!!^^
Actually I supposed to post it 2 days ago but the connection has failed me... aaarghh... Nvm, post it now is also the same... hehe... This was how it goes...

I just came back to my room after finished practising dance for DaYao. Real nice! I love it!

Last time I wanted to join the singer and dancer group for DaYao and went for audition. But I didn't succeed in singing and was only selected for dancing.

At first I was quite sad coz I prefer singing more than dancing. But later on when I really learnt dancing and performed on stage, the feeling was different. It was great!

Today, I realized that through dancing, I found my own pleasure and enjoyment. I feel happy! Even happier than singing. But don't get me wrong here, I still love singing.

I love MUSIC! Be it singing or dancing, I'm willing to sacrifice most of my time for music.

No matter how hard or how tiring it is, I will never give up my love for music.

I will keep on improving on my singing skills and also dancing skills. Hope that next year I get to join the singer group as well. ^^

What's Wrong With Me?!

Here comes the second post of mine for this year.

I'm feeling emo. Why?

Although I have been in UM for 1 semester and made quite many friends here but I don't feel the sense of belonging here.

Now it's the starting of my second semester in my first year studies in UM.

I'm not sad but I'm not happy either. Is hard to describe my feeling. I felt that there is a wall between me and my friends in UM. I'm like from a different channel from them. Sometimes I just can't fit into them.

Is it because I'm too sensitive and think too much?

Hmm... I don't know the answer. Maybe I think too much. But I hate this kind of feeling. I don't feel good. I don't feel nice.

Why I care so much? I mean, why want to bother so much about my friends?

Because friends are the most important people in my life after family. That is why, I CARE...

I feel like I have been left out by my friends.

And I think this problem came from myself. I need to examine myself.
What's wrong with me?

Am I not friendly enough?
Am I too cool? Or treated friends in a coldly manner?
Am I not helpful enough?
Did I talk rudely?
Have I accidentally hurt my friends' feeling while talking?
Am I too arrogant?
Am I hard to approach to?
Did I boast too much?
Do I possess all the bad characteristics that friends dislike?

If yes, can you please let me know? So that I can change. I'm willing to change, no matter how hard. To throw away all the bad characteristics and adopt the good ones.

Please tell me so. Whatever you dislike about me, just let me know. I will change. I don't want to be left out by friends.

Friends, maybe you might not know. But I really cherish each of you who have come into my life and show me the meaning of friends.

Maybe we meet less, maybe we talk less, maybe we sms less, maybe we contact less. But I will never forget anyone who has left footprints in my heart. Be it a deep one or a shallow one. Each one is important to me.

I'm grateful to have all of you in my life.

It's A New Year!!!

It's a new year. This is my first post for this year. Yes, it's 2009! Why am I not feeling anything special?

I think I miss my family. I miss my friends. I miss my joyful moment during holidays.

Sometimes I wish time can stop. But I know this is impossible. Time has to tick. Life has to grow.

I want to be a better person.

To family: I want to love you more. Care for you more. Respect you more. Speak politely to you. I want to take care of you.

To friends: I want to cherish you more. Care for you more. Respect you more. Speak less but listen more.

I want to live my life all out so that whenever I live this world, I will have no regrets. I promise to myself that I will live happily everyday starting from this moment because life is too short to be bothered by sadness. Whatever it is, I will overcome it. I will not complain anything because I'm glad my life is good enough compared to others in the other part of the world.

Have a nice day!!!^^
