Sweeter





"When you do what you do 
because it's the right thing to do 
and just who you are, 
it's a great feeling. 

When someone calls you out of the blue 
to say thank you for doing what you did, 
it makes it that much sweeter."

"You know how you really feel about a person

Through The Years - Lyrics




I can't remember when you weren't there
When I didn't care for anyone but you
I swear we've been through everything there is
Can't imagine anything we've missed
Can't imagine anything the two of us can't do

Through the years
You've never let me down
You turned my life around
The sweetest days I've found
I've found with you
Through the years
I've never been afraid
I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed
Right here with you
Through the years

I can't remember what I used to do
Who I trusted whom, I listened to before
I swear you've taught me everything I know
Can't imagine needing someone so
But through the years it seems to me
I need you more and more

Through the years
Through all the good and bad
I knew how much we had
I've always been so glad
To be with you
Through the years
It's better everyday
You've kissed my tears away
As long as it's okay
I'll stay with you
Through the years

Through the years
When everything went wrong
Together we were strong
I know that I belonged
Right here with you
Through the years
I never had a doubt
We'd always work things out
I've learned what love's about
By loving you
Through the years

Through the years
You've never let me down
You've turned my life around
The sweetest days I've found
I've found with you
Through the years
It's better everyday
You've kissed my tears away
As long as it's okay
I'll stay with you
Through the years

The Rose - Lyrics






Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
An endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
And you its only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dyin'
That never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose.

She Believes In Me - Lyrics




While she lays sleeping, I stay out late at night and play my songs
And sometimes all the nights can be so long
And it's good when I finally make it home, all alone
While she lays dreaming, I try to get undressed without the light
And quietly she says how was your night?
And I come to her and say, it was all right, and I hold her tight

[Chorus]
And she believes in me, I'll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl, I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right
I will find a way, find a way

While she lays waiting, I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
Then I see my old guitar in the night
Just waiting for me like a secret friend, and there's no end
While she lays crying, I fumble with a melody or two
And I'm torn between the things that I should do
And she says to wake her up when I am through, God her love is true.

[Chorus]

Happiness





"When we decide to be happy we accept the responsibility to bring happiness to someone else. Some decide that happiness and glee are the same thing, they are not. When we choose happiness we accept the responsibility to lighten the load of someone else and to be a light on the path to another who may be walking in darkness."

A Little Story





I have been neglecting both blogs lately.
There is no reason.

The noon posts are published on their own.

The 5:55pm posts need to be published manually
despite being scheduled much earlier
just like the noon posts.

Why?
I don't know.

I have a lot to write about.
But I must maintain a low profile;
perhaps no profile at all.

All-in-all I'm very grateful and thankful.

My eyes are opened bigger.
My mind is more alert.

I question more often.
I trust but I verify.

Am I still the same person?
Yes and no.
It depends on who you are.

I separate the wheat from the chaff.

Cheers! :)

Sublime Moments






Most of the things we do in life, 
we do for the sake of something else.

We work to earn money.
We exercise to stay fit and trim.
We study to pass exams.
We read to relax.

And so on.

But life's most sublime moments often occur 
when we engage in activities entirely for their own sake; 
without any ulterior motives :)

Love, Calm and Peace






"If you're living at the surface of life, 
riding the waves, 
you need that little boat 
and you constantly seek company in there 
to endure all the seasickness and storms. 

If you're the ocean, 
you don’t need the boat. 
You don’t need to get in the boat with others 
and you don’t need to drag others into yours. 

You can just be the ocean 
and heal yourself and others 
as you spread love and stay calm 
and peaceful in the moment."

Kindness

we must not overlook the importance of kindness. 
It goes hand in hand with empathy,

Yet good leaders know 
that it is the single most effective shortcut to happiness, 
for themselves as well as their teams :)
