The Paradox of Life

Who among us are not familiar with the Paradox of Life? In case you do not know about this, let me share it with you:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but
have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller
families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less
sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too
much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a
living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've
been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street
to meet a new neighbour. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've
done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but
polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write
more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to
rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to
produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods, and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of
two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are
days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night
stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to
quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and
nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to
you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just
hit delete.

Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going
to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to
you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your
side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is
the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but
most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from
deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for
someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to
speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Easier said than done? Why not give it a try? I am a failure to some of the realities in life... but I am holding on to the truth that if we cling unto God for wisdom, strength and guidance- things are never really that hard for us... We can still choose to live our life to the fullest ♥

MYM/RT: A Friend to Cherish...

me and matet
People come and go in our lives. Some will just pass by while others will choose to stay... There are some who went away not because they want to leave you, but because they were left with no choices at all. I have met a lot of them who walked away but they never leave any traces of bitterness in my heart because the truth is, they are the kind who are worth to be cherished. 

This MYM, I would like to feature my former colleague. She's Ann Margrethe "Matet" Hojas. She's no only just an ordinary colleague, she's a real friend, a big sister and a confidante. Barely two years go, she left me because that's the best thing that she could do. She used to visit me once in a while for few months since she left until I haven't seen her anymore.

But I know that in her heart and in my heart, the bonding and memories was still there. She just celebrated her birthday few weeks ago. But since I've changed my number, we do not have any communication anymore. I tried to catch her up on her fb and fs account but our world just don't meet or perhaps not yet as of now...

To Ann or Matet, whom I used to call "gwapa", I miss your presence. hope to see you soon! :)

Rustic Furniture At Its Best...

6 piece rustic bedroom furniture
Being an Architectural Drafting major, I have my preferences of home design. If I were to design my own home, I want it to be made of hard wood for the walls and floors or if not, I want my concrete floor to have wooden tiles. Of course I would love to have it complemented with rustic furniture to add beauty to my dream house. I love furniture of rustic type especially for bedroom furniture. As seen on the picture, the feeling of natural calmness was there. I am not a sophisticated type so I preferred this kind than those that are made of steels. I find this more classic and appealing. I happened to visit the Scenic Furniture website and I found their line of furniture so attractive and a really-must have to every home! They guaranteed that what they carry is made from rustic unprocessed wood or logs. There are a lot of designs to choose from and to avail it is so easy with credit cards for a very reasonable price. Not only that, they offer Instant Discount Coupon. To avail, simply click it and enter the code and they will send it to your email. Want to live like you are on the countryside. You've got to have it!
