What I know for sure

Read a book by Oprah Winfrey “What I know For Sure”. Love to share her statements that ring a bell. “You have the choice for this very moment – the only moment you have for certain. I hope you aren’t so wrapped up in nonessential stuff that you forget to really enjoy yourself – because this moment is about to be over. I hope you’ll look back and remember today as the day you decided to make very one count, to relish each hour as if there would never be another.” I know you knew already, treat it as a reminder.

Quote on Living

Martin Heidegger:  “Once we realized at some point in time we will no longer be, we gain some insight into what it means to exist.”

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it – Confucius

The more often we see things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things, the more they become invisible to us.  That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world; the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love.  Because we see things so often that we see them less and less. – Joseph B Wirthlin

About Sharing

Decide to post some photos taken around Singapore after reading the book by Victoria Moran on Creating a Charmed Life – “Don’t keep your appreciation of details to yourself. Point out the wild strawberries barely visible in the grass, the gargolyes atop an otherwise nondescript apartment building, the way the air smells like London after the rain. And surround yourself with people who understand the importance of a nearly unnoticeable item or interlude. Because society at large applauds the big, the noisy, and the obvious, it’s helpful to have in your personal world others who value the small, the quiet and the subtle.”
