Easy Life vs Difficult Life?

Elbert Hubbard once said:

“God will not look you over for medals, degrees or diplomas but for scars.”

               Sometimes in our life, we often misunderstood the difference between the words 'easy' and 'difficult'. We tend to repeat the same mistake where simple and easy things being settled through hard and difficult way. Perhaps we didn't discovered the secret yet?

Easy is to get a place in someone's address book,
Difficult is to get a place in someone's heart.

 Easy is to judge the mistakes of others,
 Difficult is to recognize our own mistakes.

Easy is to talk without thinking,
Difficult is to refrain the tongue.

Easy is to hurt someone who loves us, Difficult is to heal the wound.

Easy is to forgive others,
Difficult is to ask for forgiveness,

Easy is to set rules,
Difficult is to follow them.

Easy is to dream every night,
Difficult is to fight for a dream.

Easy is to show victory,
Difficult is to assume defeat with dignity.

Easy is to admire a full moon,
Difficult to see the other side.

Easy is to stumble with a stone,
Difficult is to get up.

Easy is to enjoy life every day,
Difficult is to give its real value.

Easy is to pray every night,
Difficult is to find God in small things.

Easy is to promise something to someone,
Difficult is to fulfill that promise.

Easy is to say we love,
Difficult is to show it every day.

Easy is to criticize others,
Difficult is to improve oneself.

Easy is to make mistakes,
Difficult is to learn from them.

Easy is to weep for a lost love,
Difficult is to take care of it so you wont lose it.

Easy is to think about improving,
Difficult is to stop thinking it and put it into action.

Easy is to think bad of others,
Difficult is to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Easy is to receive,
Difficult is to give.

Easy is to keep friendship with words,
Difficult is to keep it with meanings.

             It is just a groovy kind of life, 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 some of you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith. 

            Perhaps it can be one giant leap to a better future.


To you whom I have met, did you know that happiness depends upon ourselves? Now and then, it's good to pause in your pursuit of happiness and just be happy because the happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.

Be like a child my dearest hummingbird. Children are happy because they don't have a file in their minds called "All the Things That Could Go Wrong". You see, everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.

It is hard for me to be there with you in Malacca when I am far away at north in Penang. But they say, a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.

And I am here, always with you, in your heart and mind. I love you Rin.

Loving you,

The Half Moon Serenades.
