 Taking a stand means what you believe is what you become.Its a strength within you that no amount of discouragement  cannot beat.

With Fullness in Life, Everything is Possible, by Facundo Cabral

 Losing something is impossible, it is only a matter of our perspective of seeing things differently of what is left over what is lost. There were times of my life I lost my pride when I got a child out of wed lock and raised him alone. Thereafter I was criticized, ashamed by my family, next thing that happened is I choose a guy to marry that in reverse they hardly disagree. But, I did this all out of love by standing of what I believe than seeing things that it is an obligation to follow what is right in their eyes. Life is a matter of perspective, seeing things according to your points of view. What keeps me away from depression is realizing that things happen naturally when even we are not aware or eventually know the result may come. There is no such thing as losing, only gaining what is left and what is already there. Life is beautiful.

God Bless!


Blessings for Earth-Healers, by Starhawk

Feeling of gratitude to be healed by the healer of the earth and vice versa by doing random act of kindness and nurture by the earth's natural effect. There we're most of my life filled up with negativity, anger, fear,rejection, frustration where naturally healed by seeing beautiful creatures around us, like when I'm alone, I spend myself seeing far, appreciating dancing trees, whirling winds, sunny and sunset and rivers flowing. They are all natural healing of earth. And vice versa, I share this realization to every people I know who is need of healing too like me. I feel all the gratitude that God made creatures that will give you natural healing, seeing around will make you realize the bigger picture of life. 

God Bless!

Eulogy Versus Resume Virtues, by David Brooks

FaceBook  On Jun 28, 2015 jerard wrote:

 For me both of the two are building virtues, the only  distinction between the two is that eulogy is  a virtue we build prior to the day we leave the world and such virtue will continue to work in hand, while the resume is a virtue we build to be equipped  in the present.

When we prepare a resume, we ensure all the details therein speaks about our technical ability to compete in the market while a preparation for eulogy is at large character of what we build although our life for the sake of a good legacy that will work in hand as we leave the world.
To deepen the eulogy virtue, I always end up a day with a good realization for the good and bad times, but still looking at the brighter side of everything and being thankful for the blessings left in hand. That, the best virtue is accepting things happen according to God’s will.
