QOTD: On Faith

“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out
of nowhere. We can’t always understand them, but
we have to trust in them. I know you want to
question everything, but sometimes it pays to just
have a little faith.”
― Lauren Kate

QOTD: On Life

“This life is what you make it. No matter what,
you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal
truth. But the good part is you get to decide how
you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends
– they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some
come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends.
Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make
the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well,
they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it,
most of them – actually pretty much all of them are
going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your
soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you
whole and that goes for everything. Just because
you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at
everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always,
always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head
high, keep your chin up, and most importantly,
keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and
there’s so much to smile about.”
― Marilyn Monroe

QOTD: On Friendships

“I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship,
it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and
let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be
distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take
them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that
holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.”
― Jon Katz

QOTD: The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-
centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends
and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest
ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top
dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.
People really need help but may attack you if you
do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”
― Kent M. Keith

Food For Thought

Not — How did he die?
But — How did he live?
These are the units to measure the worth of a man, regardless of birth.

Not — What was his station
But — Had he a heart?
And — How did he play his God-given part?
Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer, to bring back a smile, to banish a tear?

Not — What was his shrine?
Nor — What was his creed?
But — Had he befriended those really in need?
Not — What did the sketch in the newspaper say?
But — How many were sorry when he passed away?

#100Things

Hey guys!
Never thought i’d say this buh TGIFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!. LOL. Even though my weekend’s fully booked and my wash day’s messed up. 😦 :(. Anyways on a lighter note, i’ve complied a list [Did i mention how much i love lists?! There’s this sense of organisation and meticulousness when stuffs are written down or a mental note is made somewhere] of things that makes me happy. Yep! The whole idea is to appreciate every little tiny detail/thing that comes your way. Happiness doesn’t necessarily have to be something grandeur. You don’t have to wait for that endorsement deal until we’re happy. Little things such as giving or receiving compliments goes a long way. Well, it does for me. I dunno bout you. LOL
