Kahlil Gibran once said :
"We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side.”
Being a 25 years man, people always asked me, "Have you ever decided to make some big change in your life? Was there something you were not happy with, so you decided to "turn over a new leaf"? Did you spend a huge amount of your time and energy into trying to change that which you didn't like?"
In today's fast paced world, most people want "instant" happiness. Many people believe that any effort put into creating any sort of change needs to show some very fast results or they will lose interest and give up in the despair of "nothing's happening, so why bother?" This usually results in lots of effort and energy expended for little if any lasting result.
Just as the internet is made up of millions of different computers all linked together to form a massive field of information, so to is your life built out of millions of interconnected memories and experiences.
Your life is continuously being built out of tiny pieces of time. One small action connected to the next, and each one of these tiny pieces of your life combine into the whole web of who you are.
- Carefully watch your THOUGHTS, for they become your WORDS.
- Manage and watch your WORDS, for they will become your ACTIONS.
- Consider and judge your ACTIONS, for they have become your HABITS.
- Acknowledge and watch your HABITS, for they shall become your VALUES.
- Understand and embrace your VALUES, for they become YOUR DESTINY.
And perhaps a groovy kind of love and happiness is just around the corner for you and the other half of your sky.
To you whom I have met, I want to be your man. The one who can led you hands in hands in the pursuit of happiness. Be the optimist in our love, because they sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.
Through the time, we will share a beautiful love, in the sweetness of our love, let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things, does the heart find its morning and is refreshed.
I love you Rina, you are the other half of my sky. People say if a man knew himself, he would know all the woman but for me, I will say if a man loved a woman, he would know something of himself. And that's the love that I found in you.
Until then, put in your heart the fact that I had fallen in love with you way before we knew each other. 359 love letters still can't described how much my affection towards you, but I hope I can show it through my action one day.
The Half Moon Serenades.
