What are you really afraid of ?

You're not afraid of the dark
You're just afraid of what's in it

You're not afraid of heights
You're just afraid of the pain of falling

You're not afraid of dying
You're just afraid of where you're going

You're not afraid of people around you
You're just afraid of rejection

You're not afraid of love
You're just afraid of not being loved back

You're not afraid of trying something new
You're just afraid of failure

Letters to Juliet

Dear Claire,

"What" and "If" are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life:

What if? What if? What if?

I don't know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it's never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn't it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart.

I don't know what a love like Juliet's feels like - love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for but I'd like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I will have the courage to seize it. And, Claire, if you didn't, I hope one day that you will.

All my love,
Juliet

- Letters to Juliet

I just sat there and enjoyed every moment as I watch another happy ending.

I'm not a skeptic of love, I embrace it.

It's not because I've never felt heartbroken or gone through loneliness. I know love to be a beautiful thing because it helped me overcame that brokenness and all the pain I felt.

I will not let myself give up on love because love never fails. And if there was one person who made me see this, it would be God Himself.

He made me see that it is a blessing to love people above all other things, to even give your life for them.

Yes, He goes through the heartaches that we go through today. He feels pain but probably a million times more. We'd never think that He could feel this but He can because after all, we are a part of who He is.

Yet when we reject Him,

Did He walk away? Did He ever leave us?

No.

He still loves us and He will continue to risk everyday loving us unconditionally until we come back to Him and even if we don't.

You know, when I saw what He did for me. I told myself, I want to love people like that.

Redeemed

This is what I learn today and will forever remember.

That saying sorry is not easy.

But it is worth it because it sets you and I free.

The tears come but dry up soon.

The heart hurts no more.

The past is past.

and you and I can move on.

Loved by You




"I was made to be loved by You"

No one loves me more than You do. Truth is, no words can describe your wonderful love which captures my heart over and over again.

Look Up

You look up when you need hope,
You look up when you see something breathtaking,
You look up when you're finish wiping those tears,
You look up when you want to see the stars,
You look up when you want to talk to God,
You look up when the sun rises,
You look up to those you love and respect,
You look up so you can look ahead and not bump into things,
You look up when you want to look at your beautiful self in the mirror,
You look up cause you're not giving up just yet,
You look up cause you're done being down,


Something good happens when we look up :)

Be kind enough

I am having this horrible sore throat. I'm running out of ideas to soothe the pain. I'm screaming inside and I do not feel like speaking a single word or swallowing my saliva anymore. It hurts so much. Honey helps a lot. It's sweet and it works like magic. I wish I can just take spoons and more spoons of honey. But each spoon is not cheap. So I have to rely on lime, salt and warm water. Hopefully the sore will go away soon.

Getting sick is not fun. I'm trying to sleep EARLY. But my piles of homework is pulling at my hands and feet. What is wrong with my schedule? And Christmas is like.....23 ( REPEAT, TWENTY-THREE) days away. I'm still working so hard :( LOL. I'm just thinking about my well-deserved break! This has got to be my most whiniest post. I am mostly a very whiny person. But I never like to write rambling posts.

So, moving on.

I have a question for you, if you're reading this. It was on my mind this afternoon.
Have you ever been kind or daring enough to tell your friend if he/she has

1. Something gross stuck up their nose? or
2. Chocolate cream around the mouth? or
3. Vegetable stuck between the teeth? or
4. Exposed their butt crack? :O
5. Forgot to zip their pants?

I mean it happens and it's really embarrassing but we just ignore them. We can't look at them in the eyes and tell them, "Hey, you need to clean up!", or "Erm, you're giving a free show la, pull up your pants please." Which I admit for laughing at such people before and walking away instead.

But what if it was YOU in that embarrassing position?

I get my mouth dirty all the time but I don't realize it until I looked at myself in the mirror and discover the horror. I even think about how many hundreds of people have been snickering behind my back because I have cream on my face, and nobody was kind enough to tell me. They had to let the mirror do the last minute clean up job for me.

Which got me thinking... I think I won't mind embarrassing myself in front of just one person who noticed something unsightly and told me about it. I rather you tell me and not think twice about 'me' feeling uncomfortable. In fact, I would thank you and appreciate you for being kind enough.

You would want people do that nice little gesture for you too, don't ya?
