Echoes of Our Words

Hi folks!

I have read a book entitled "Echoes from the Heart"….lately I have been pondering a lot on "Echoes from our Words…"
Our words can kill or heal as the sayings go….
And lately I do find our words really have echoes too.
Think the time when whenever we do something, someone's advice will ring behind our mind. I noticed this lately when I was buying KY's new school uniform.  Seemingly simple task, when I was choosing over the size to buy, one size is too large, the other is just nice. But viewing in long term the thrifty me would opt for the bigger size to last for one whole year. But DH's view drums into me, saying it would looks funny on her if too big. Thus I went ahead and get 3 just nice and 1 larger one.
Then, I start to think again, how my words will also drum into the kids when they do something. Thus, we must really choose our words well and think thrice before we speak to our children. Whether our words will help them to make a better choice in life or deter them from moving forward.
I felt it's really hard to control our words sometimes, especially we are so used to act from emotions, habits, etc. Thus it's really important to always fine-tune our heart and mind first thing in the morning. To sync our heart with love and compassion, so that everything that comes out from our thoughts and words filled with love and compassion and no harsh tone or words that might scar another soul.
Let us all take time to listen to the "Echoes of our Words" and ensure that the echoes filled with love and compassion.

Action Plan

Hi folks!

These are my action plan based on some of the things that connected with each of the improvement I like to make in my aspiration list.

Here are some and the list will keep expanding as journeyed through life.

1.       To speak kindly, act with love especially with my closed ones.

-          Always speak with love. Never out of anger. When I am angry or lack of patient, keep silent. Walk away. Do not hurt the innocent ones.

-          Give encouragement generously. Everyone needed a lift. Even to myself. Give a pat to myself for a job well-done. Acknowledge myself and others.

-          Apologise immediately. Do not keep any grudges or regrets in life. Not even a single day.

2.       To always communicate my real fear, concern and worries with DH.

-          Practice courage, clarity and love to speak frankly with DH.

-          Be truthful and be open and respectful.

3.       To do my Best and have faith in God that thing will work out. I just need to put in my 100% and leave the rest to Him.

-          Pray and talk to Him every morning, every fear/adventures and happiness, every ending of the day.

-          Give it a try before giving up. Use your true heart and seek guidance from above.

4.       To detach from hardship, unhappiness and retain more goodness, happy thoughts and be more joyful, live life fullest and to bring joy to others around me.

-          Laugh more with kids and DH. Enjoy the moment together. Have more happy memories together. Have fun and do "crazy" things together. Let your hair go for once.

-          Keep the list in heart and mind. See through the plans/real work with much gusto and cheerfulness.

5.       To give unconditionally, lovingly, happily and fully.

-          Though you dreaded the task, but sometimes a task being assigned to you for a reason. If you could do it, why not. Accomplish the task with a peaceful heart and learn along the way.

-          To cherish each moment of giving, give thanks when the tough gets going.

Hope I will remember all these principles, guidelines, whatever you name it….

In EVERYTHING I ASPIRE TO ACCOMPLISH FOR COMING YEAR….too many to list out…haha..but I might..cos I have really short-term memory :P

Aspiration and Confession

Hi folks!

Lately I find myself running short of not only energy, high-spirited self and also patience. Little things that kids do like being too loud at night (which kids do not or able to control their volume?), I could go real mad or actually more worried DH will punish them. But gee that isn't an excuse. There should be more better way to control or at least manage their "loudness" and "laughter". I feel REALLY BAD for scolding them for laughing too loud, playing in musical instrument and even sing at night. Simply because I lacked of patience and being overly-anxious as we are staying close vicinity with our neighbor.

So this really has a great influence on my aspiration for the year which I have been contemplating so far.

I wished to improve in the following areas:

1.       To speak kindly, act with love especially with my closed ones.

Transform how an unintended ugly situation to a loving one.

2.       To always communicate my real fear, concern and worries with DH.

To eradicate any miscommunication. Have courage, faith and trust that we love each other enough to be frank and be loving and understanding while communicating.

3.       To do my Best and have faith in God that things will work out. I just need to put in my 100% and leave the rest to Him.

To build my close relationship and strong faith in God. To work alongside him to create miracles and witness the transformation.

4.       To detach from hardship, unhappiness and retain more goodness, happy thoughts and be more joyful, live life fullest and to bring joy to others around me.

I felt I have becoming more worry-full than I should be instead of "smelling the roses". Thus, I am blessed with people like that around me, especially KY.

5.       To give unconditionally, lovingly, happily and fully.

To be able to give is a gift. Do not tarnish a well-intended giving with any negative energy. Give with love. Learn…learn…learn..

This is the overall guidelines..which has to match with some real habits nurturing and action plan which I hope to think it though and share it here J

Folks, will you join me to share your thoughts on this and share your aspiration too. Love to hear from you all!

Cheers and have a lovely and fruitful year ahead!


Have a Blessed Christmas to All!

Hi folks!

A prayer of peace, warm and happiness on this day of reunion..
May the world inside(our heart) & outside(external) filled with much love and gratitude!

Cheers! :)

Books I bought at BBW 2012

Hi folks!

This year, DH managed to find time to accompany me to BBW. We depart around 6.50pm from my mom's place and reached the carpark only about 7.30pm due to heavy traffic. Luckily there are still plenty of carpark at Basement parking. However, if going alone and late at night, it's more advisable to bring someone along.

Once we reached the hall, we marched straight to the Children section. We spent about an hour there and then announcement can be heard telling us the place will close at 9pm. Thus I told hubby time to queue at payment counter as I thought it would be long
Queue, however when we reached the counter there isn't any long queue, many people are still busy browsing for their "treasure". I was tempted to continue..can see DH still busy browsing too! ;) He spent more time and picked more books for the kids this time, much to my surprise! :) Guess with this firs experience to BBW, he would understand our craze for this event of the year that people actually took leave an spent whole day there! Yey, hopefully this means he will be willing to fetch me to BBW every year lol :)

Following the wedding dinner tradition where you wouldn't want to get stucked and jam at the final crowd when everyone is rushing home. Thus I depart without looking at other section but somehow feeling satisfied as I don't think with my big belly I can sustain any longer browsing..spent MYR110 an hour for 18 books ;) Not bad!

We bought 3 encyclopedia/atlas, one book on piano & Thomas & friend for SE, one book on ballet & Dora for KY(their favorites!), one set of 3 Disney stories book(came along wih stickers
& activity books), two wipe clean
Activity book from their favourite character(so can reuse many times hehe!) and one special sound book that comes with a counter which count the no. of times you shake ur butt when the music stops(this book was picked by DH, I must say he has great knack@hunting interesting books for the kids!)

That's all we bought, went home without jam and bought Rojak for supper ;)

Satisfied ..cheers :)

Unexpected "two"

Hi folks!

Unexpected 1: Less than a minute after we "painstakingly" spent 20mins. to assemble the Lego truck, my boy dismantle it soon after I finished taking picture. He then made himself airplane and other stuff..imaginative and full of creativity :)
