Depth of life,


image

Today, I was randomly flipping this book that I have gotten from my friends this year birthday and I ended at a page that got me like “OMG, is this quote!”
I remembered how I used to like this quote.
“It is not length of life, but depth of life.”

And there you can see, at the background of the picture, there is a similar quote.
These quotes are those I actually picked out probably 1 to 2 years back and pasted on my board to act as a reminder to me.
We often forget how to lead our life more simple. It can be really simple or complicated and up even till today, I still sincerely believed that the way we choose to live, will affect how we live. If we choose to live it happily, we can.
Now, I’m doing my best to live my life with life everyday, doing something we love and finding happiness in whatever we are doing.

Probably few months back, I unintentionally overlapped these quotes with some other papers that the quotes actually got covered up.
And as days goes by, I eventually forgot about it.

Today when I saw it, realisation kind of hit upon me and I felt really thankful that I actually saw these quotes once again.
Sometimes when our life gets too stressful with things we have to worry about or even get upset about,
We tend to forget these small little reminders are actually crucial keys in our lives.
I’m a person who actually dwell on little things and sometimes, I take a pretty long time to get over things.
I’m aware and I know I needed reminders time to time.
It is pretty much of a bad habit but I’ve been trying hard to change myself throughout all these years.
Well, reflections eventually do make a person an even better person right?

I saw this quote while reading the quotes today by Denis Waitley ,”I had the blues because I had no shoes until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet.”
It hit upon me that we should not keep on thinking that our life isn’t perfect.
We have many things that many other people don’t.
And because we are human, we are never satisfied and we kept wanting for more.
But to think about it, how many things in life, have we took for granted?

This is worth a thought for you and me, isn’t it?

Many people know that I love to write and in their cards or messages for me, they wrote a common message, “Continue writing and continue inspiring.”
I can’t be more thankful to receive these messages and know that I have made a difference in people’s lives.
At least a positive one.

I know sometimes when we speak, when we give advices, some people might think that everything is easy because we are not you.
You might even feel that talk is cheap and we can say as much as we want but we don’t feel how you feel.
Everyone is embarked on a different journey in life and thus, we will obtain different experiences so never judge a person.
You never knew what he or she is going through.
But I just wanted to say that, we can empathise but if you want a change in your life, the only person that holds the key is you.
We can write posts and share our experiences but we cannot change your life unless you do it your own.

So why wait?

Be the change for yourself today.

Today is the 100th day that Uncle Cheng has left us but I honestly believe that he is doing well in heaven. :’)

Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear.

My 100th post, my life story.


Hiya, I’m back!

This will officially be my 100th post since I joined wordpress!

And thus, I decided to post something that means close to me and hopefully bring out the meaning of this life story to everyone.

So here goes.

I was a happy go lucky girl since young.

Everyone says that if ever the sky falls, I could have just used the sky as my blanket. haha.

I might not be a very outspoken person, okay maybe I do. To the people who I’m close to.

But yea, one thing I’m ever glad that I have was to have this optimistic attitude of mine.

Whenever I am upset or so, I might whine alot, like literally complain. But I mean no harm. I love to say it out, well of course is better to say then to bottle up in my heart, isn’t it? hahaa, That could raise my risk of having heart problem. :p

First change was when it was 2007.
I used to be quite a rebellious girl during 2007. Well, it was the stage that many become really really bad. I’m glad I did not turn out that way.
I remembered how much I love to buy branded bags and so.

But yes, I wasn’t the one paying for them.

I remembered how freely I always used my money.
I did not have the habit of saving back then as well.
All I did, was to spend.

I can’t remember what happened, but I did change.
Partly , i think  it was because of the passing on of my grandmother.
I started to slowly see things in another perspective.

Then I moved on to another year where I found my love in reading books.

I really miss those times spent with my friends reading, spending our break times, lunch times, just purely reading. It was really great fun.

Yet, when I reached the next 2 years,

I started to get very tired with my studies and started to feel the burden of studying.

Of course, I did not score very well, with that mindset as my motivation was really low.

Now thinking back, I could have gotten better, if I had more motivation.

But during the low period of my life,

I had the most wonderful amazing people around me.

I have my family there for me and the most wonderful mentor- Mdm Tan.

I remembered how well she motivated me, giving me courage and strength to go on.

She would talk to me about achieving my goals and so.

Sometimes, teachers do not have to teach through lessons, but really, giving support to the students when they need it was really important.

I went on to my another stage of life and after thinking for a long time, I decided I would do something meaningful to my life, in the end, taking up gerontology.

I found my passion in this.

Learning about active ageing and so. And hopefully, these knowledge will be useful in the future.

Then I have my another change in my life.

One fine day, I spotted a floater in my eye. In the end, I went for eye check up.
To my horror, to find out that my retinal had detached.

I was afraid and scared to hear about the surgery processes that totally freaks me out.

I was like, “WHAT?! You have to take my eyeball out?”

Sounds disgusting and painful , isn’t it? Ouch.

I was that young and I started to wonder.

How would this happen to me?

Normally, it would happen to older people, stated by the doctor.

But I was too young for that!

I was horrified and when I went to  another hospital, the doctor wanted a surgery straight!

My mind couldn’t even processed!!!

So I told myself, “CW, BE STRONG.”

The doctor felt that he could try laser surgery first.

And yes, I went in.

During the procedure, I was like, “OH GAWD, IT HURTS!!!!!!!!”

I felt my tears were flowing.

I thought of the happy moments I have, trying to distract me from the pain.

I was glad, I survived!!!!

But in the end, when I went for the check up the very next day,

he realised there was a need for another round. 😦

And this time, I guess I was stronger.

In a short while. it was done.

After that matter, I have alot of thoughts flowing through my mind and I became what I am like today.

I lost 10% of my vision but I have started to notice small little things that I couldn’t noticed or cared in the past.

And ta da, another positive attitude girl is created.

I felt like a brand new girl after my surgery.

Well, you may call it unlucky, but I am really glad I survived and I’ve been through a lesson that taught right into my heart.

Well, this is my life story and my dear 100th post.

It was a tough process but I learnt alot from them.

Do you feel happy for me?

I do, I really do.

 

And yes , thank you for my 87 followers.

Everything does happen for a reason. 😉
