Pretty Words Are Not Always True

"Pretty words are not always true, and true words are not always pretty."
Though there are some who are given the gift to outlay an excellent terminology the words they utter do not necessarily mean anything if they aren't true. If we are to be concerned with a person's words we must be able to effectively choose who we give our ears to by devoting the energy that we spend listening, hearing and understanding words of actual wisdom, and not words that are played together nicely.

A lot of people are able to say a lot of things, especially in this information age, and if we don't choose who we listen to regularly on the basis of whether or not their words or true or not we could be influenced to live a life that is untrue and lacking in meaning itself. Not only should we only lend our ears to those who are willing to speak the truth, but we should also make great efforts to live an honest life, speaking nothing but the truth ourselves!

Batu Nabau

The existence of a boulder shaped like a huge snake is nothing new to the residents of Nyalau Muang longhouse. The boulder known as Batu Nabau is located in Bukong which is about 50 metres from the longhouse.

The Batu Nabau measures more than nine metres in length and two metres in diameter. It straddles Sungai Bukong at a place called Batu Lintang. The tale regarding Batu Nabau resurfaces after a Siamese man from Kuala Lumpur made a claim on the existence of a huge snake that turned into stone as he doubled his efforts to locate it. With the assistance of the local residents in the Sri Aman District, he located Batu Nabau as dreamt. Together with the local residents, he painted the boulder and cleared the areas around it.

The man’s tale was published in the local newspaper.The tale did not end there as Jawi-like alphabets were said to have been found in the central portion of Batu Nabau. The alleged Jawi alphabets of alif, lam, nun, mim and sinwere said to have been arranged in a reverse order and separated from one another.

The discovery was made by one of the local residents who had visited the area after reading an article about Batu Nabau in the local newspaper. As Batu Nabau has become a public attraction, the Lubok Antu District Council (MDLA) plans to develop the area as one of the tourist destinations. It also proposes to conduct a detailed study on the existence of Batu Nabau which will be documented for public information.

The Nabau Stone became the talk of town when it received media coverage back in 1996 and the story about the stone was published in the following years in a local Mandarin newspaper. Taking advantage of the popularity of Batu Nabau as a public attractoin, the Lubok Antu District Council(MDLA) has planned to develop the area as a tourist attraction.

It also proposed a detailed study to be conducted on the Batu Nabau for public consumption.As a result of the proposal, several representatives were sent to monitor and scrutinise the potential of the area in becoming a tourist attraction in addition to learning about the story behind the stone's existence. MDLA hopes that the location of the Nabau stone could later developed as a tourist's spot in the Engkilili small district. Visitors who wish to see the Nabau stone must be cautious and adhere to the instructions posted at the entrance to the area.

Take a good look around you

Take a good look around you. Before you complain about how bad or screwed up your life is, take a step back and look around. You've got people that genuinely care about you and you have all the basic necessities provided... food, clothing, shelter. Things could be worse. Things don't always go your way and things aren't always perfect but that doesn't mean your life sucks. Appreciate what you do have.

If they don't appreciate you they don't deserve you

"If they don't appreciate you they don't deserve you."

If any person that you give your time, effort, and energy to doesn't act like they appreciate you, they don't deserve for you to give your time, effort and energy to them. Don't be bothered with those who wont receive from you. As in the parable of the sower, there are just some people who will never allow for him or her to receive any thing from anyone else. Some soil or people will never be able to let go and humble their selves enough to receive anything from any person, including you.

Don't get discouraged, because there are many others who need help as well. Sometimes we may be able to effectively inspire a whole nation of people that we aren't close to, but not be able to touch who needs it the most and is closest to us. This is just how life works in some instances. We have to choose to let go of the things in life that are slowing our progression and the progression of the people who we are missing out on blessing.

True love is sacrifice

"True love is sacrifice."

Many times when we are in love we have to make sacrifices. Though we should never, ever sacrifice who we are as individuals, sometimes being in true love means that we must sacrifice things like plans we may have already made, so that we can be there for someone we truly love.

Sometimes true love may require us to sacrifice acquiring more material possessions so that we may be able to develop a closer intimate bond with someone we truly love.

Sometimes love will require us to give love in moments that we know we would rather receive love, and sometimes true love will force us to put a person that we truly loves own well being before our own.

True love is never easy, and it requires much sacrifice at times, but the benefits and the rewards from treating a true love as what it really is, will be available to harvest for a lifetime.

Faith sees the way

"Doubt sees the obstacles. Faith sees the way. Doubt sees the darkest night. Faith sees the day. Doubt dreads to take a step. Faith soars high. Doubt questions "Who believes?" Faith answers "I"."

Do you doubt more than you believe? As the great Buddha stated "There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills."

Doubt doesn't do anything but hide behind the obstacles that are in its way, while faith allows for a person to overcome them. Doubt only allows for a mind to see how dark it is at night, while faith allows for a mind to see that preparation is imperative for the new light in the day that is coming ahead. A person who doubts is never willing to start, while a person of faith steps out against every challenge in an effort to fly. Doubt tries to destruct the human psyche, while those who are faithful remain strengthened even in times of great destruction and difficulty. Which do you choose?

Be with someone who knows your worth

"It will be worth it to be with someone who knows your worth."

Finding someone who realizes how much you are worth will probably lead to a better life than a life dedicated to someone who pays no mind to how much you are worth. One small but big reason that we all seek companionship from someone we can stem an intimate relationship with is because we want to feel loved, we all want to feel important, and we all want to be attractive to at least one person. So make your significant other feels as though they are truly important.

Show them that you care in different ways everyday that you possibly can. Never be scared to tell them your true feelings aloud, especially if you love them, and be sure to also tell them why you care about them as well. Everyone needs their ego stroked every once in a while, make sure if you have someone special and if someone has you to communicate your love for them, and not to let them take for granted that you need these things communicated to yourself as well.

The past is a good place to visit, but not to stay

"Past is a good place to visit but certainly not a good place to stay."

The memories that we make in life with the people and the things that we adore in each moment are memories that we should cherish for the rest of our lives. Memories are made for us to be able to look back upon, and appreciate times that were good, when we are in periods of despair, and also to help us overcome situations that arise in our present and future that we have answers to because of the things that we experienced in our pasts.

It is very crucial to remember when dealing with the past that though it may be a good place to visit, that it is not a good place to stay. Trying to live in the past will severely limit the future of any individual trying to do so. In trying to live in the past we essentially are focusing our efforts on going backwards in life, when we must only be concerned with moving forward, and creating the best future for ourselves as possible.

In the end they'll judge you anyway

In the end they'll judge me anyway so whatever.

In your life there will always be those who judge you. There will be those who judge you who don't have a clue who you are, or what you are really about. There will be those who judge you who aren't living to their fullest potential themselves. And there will even be those who judge you that know you best just because they may envy your drive, or the road that you are on towards success and happiness in your life. In the end, most people will judge you, so instead of worrying about what people think, do whatever may make you the happiest in life.

Worrying about another judgment only gives them a hold over your life that no one should ever have. Remember that many men will judge you, but just as we arent perfect, neither are they. We must continue to reach and strive toward our calling and what is in our hearts to achieve than to worry about what people may think of us

Accepting the fact that things change

I admit, I really miss how things used to be. But I can also admit, that I've accepted the fact that things changed.

One lesson we must all learn in our lives is that things can always change. Sure, we will always remember how things used to be, and we will sometimes lose sight of our future because we want to turn around and re-live moments from our past, but there must come a time in which we accept that things have changed. One thing that we must all note in life is that we cannot undo the parts of our lives that have changed, and that may cause us to regret now.

We can't always go back and undo the pain that we have caused others and ourselves, we cannot always mend the hearts that we break back together. What we can do though, is make an effort to live the best life that we possibly can, and to vow to always be better, and to do better than we ever did in the past. Your past is your past, and no matter what you do you cannot change it, but you can create a better future as long as you give effort within every waking moment of your life.

Sometimes you mean nothing to someone who means everything to you

Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because, sometimes, you mean nothing to someone who means everything to you.

It is hard to accept when we come to the realization that a person in our lives that we care about significantly just doesn't care about us as much, or in the same way in which we care for them. When we find ourselves in situations as such we must be willing to let our feelings go sometimes, especially when we have done everything that we feel we possibly could have, but in turn still get rejected.

Sometimes we must try not to care because no matter what we may do, we won't mean the same to a person that they mean to us. Never let this deter you from showing someone your true feelings later on down the line, because it doesn't mean you weren't good enough for them, it just means that they weren't good enough to see how dynamic of a person you really are.

Single Awareness Day!

I feel that I should tell ya
A warning to prepare you
About this song, it's when love goes wrong, but I'll carry on.

I gotta keep it real
Of how I really feel
About this day, please go away, I don't want it to stay

When cupid aimed his arrow at me
He missed by a 100,000 feet.

This ain't a song about love, 
It's the actually opposite I'm thinkin' of
I don't care about the cards, or candy hearts, 
Oh no no no I'll tell you right from the start
Oh, reminds of how I don't have a date, 
The 14th of February gets in the way cause for me,
It's Single Awareness Day.

With all the red and pink
It's just so hard to think
Oh why would I care, about what
I should wear, for nobody who's there.

I need love,
I need you
I need some one to hold me too.

I need love
It's so true
I need ya to say I love you.

S.A.D No valentine for me
And Imma be alright if you could only see
That today's just a day and if it's meant to be
There's always next year, just wait and see.

People will hurt you

"People can be cruel, and they will be. People can hurt you, break your heart and they will. But only you can let them KEEP hurting you."

The saying goes, if a snake bites you once, it may be the snakes' fault, but usually when the snake bites you a second time, it is your fault. When we are in the vicinity of something that is potentially harmful, like a relationship with a dishonest person, or a person who has no qualms with hurting us to get what they want, and they eventually do, it may not be our fault the first time that they do so, even if the warning signs were there.

It is only after these people hurt us and only when we choose to allow them into our lives to hurt us again, is it our fault that we get hurt again. As this passage says, people can be cruel, and they will be. This is not to say, that everyone will hurt you over and over again, and that no one deserves a second chance, but those who are chosen by you to receive a second chance, should be chosen wisely, and only with your heart's discretion.

"Stop going back to the one who brings you more pain than happiness. It's not worth it to continue to invest your feelings into somebody unworthy of your love. Everybody deserves second chances, but not for the same mistakes."

Having the courage to talk to someone

"Sometimes, the people you think don't want to talk to you are the ones waiting for you to talk to them."
Having the courage to talk to someone who you may be scared to talk to may open up doors that you never imagined would be open for you, sometimes we must be willing to take risks like talking to someone that we never knew would talk to us, and in turn we may find out that they have been the ones that have been waiting to talk to you. Life requires us at times to be more aggressive than we would normally like to be. 

Instead of running from life, and the uncomfortable situations that we may expose ourselves to, it is important that we make our self comfortable in being in uncomfortable situations, and that we utilize the ability to take risks in our lives, because it is these types of situations that allow us to grow exponentially. We must be willing to talk to the people who we don't think will talk to us, and choose to go after experiences that we are uncertain about as well.

When someone has a crush on you, it can make you feel excited and nervous if you also feel the same way about the person. Unfortunately you won't always feel the same about everyone who has a crush on you, so sometimes it can be awkward. Regardless of whether you feel the same way about a person who has feelings for you, it is important to address the situation by talking to him/her about it.

Wasting time thinking about someone

"Sometimes we waste too much time to think about someone that doesn't think about us for a second."

Wasting one's time is one of the biggest wrongs that can be committed against one's self. Time is our most valuable resource because it is something that once past, can never be acquired again. In order to make the best use of our time it is crucial that we use it doing the things within our heart that we love, with the people we love and who love us in return. 

When somebody isn't willing to devote their self to you, like you are willing to devote yourself to them, having a relationship with this person will more than likely lead to devastation for the person who cares most. This isn't always something that is possible to avoid but can more easily be determined even though sometimes it may be after we acquire feelings for a person. In order to be the best you, you must be willing to let go of people who have no interest in helping transform you into the best you, don't waste your time on those that don't.

God opens millions of flowers
without forcing the buds. it
reminds us not to force anything
for things happen in the right time

My life as a teacher will be start there. God Bless. I was sad because maybe I will alone in stranger places. Then, all friends post their posting. I'm glad that my friends also went to Sarawak.

My heart

One day an 11 year old girl asked her daddy,

"What are you going to get me for my 15th birthday?"

The father replied, "There is much time left."

When the girl was 14 she fainted and was rushed to the hospital.

The doctor came out and told her dad she had a bad heart& she is probably gonna die

When she was lying in the hospital bed she said

"Daddy,. have they told you I am going to die?"

The father replied no you will live as he left weeping.

She said "How can you be sure."

He turned around from the door and said "I know."

She turns 15 when she is recovering and comes home to find a letter on her bed. It says;

"My Dearest Daughter, if you are reading this it means all went well as I told you. One day you asked me what I was giving you for your 15th birthday, I didn't know then but now my present to you is a MY HEART."

Her father donated his heart.

P/S: Now only love like that can make a father end his life to save his daughter. I'm envious and touched by the story. Although it's just a short story, it makes we cry a lot and think deeply. Can't imagine that will happen to us. We still don't want lose someone that we love, especially our parents.

I won't give up

When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools, the gifts we've got yeah we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we didn't tend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I got, and what I'm not
And who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

So easy is our life
What's mine is yours and yours mine
Hardly do we ever fight
We'd rather be kind

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get dark
I'm healing this broken heart
And I know I'm worth it

I won't give up on us
God knows I'm tough enough
We got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it

No I won't give up on us
God knows I've had enough
We got a lot to learn
And we're, and we're worth it

No I won't give up
No I won't give up

By: Jason Mraz

Such a heart felt song. Sounds like they are in different places in their hearts. Go listen to this one, just breaks my heart. Hope I can work it out in real life. So, I won't give up that easily until I try my best. That's all.

"Not Turning Back. I have made a commitment, so Time to Take the Risk and Get Things done!"

Fighting in relationships

"You can't have a relationship without any fights, but you can make your relationship worth the fight."

No matter what the movies, and the fairy tale stories we hear about love say, there isn't always a happily ever after, and VERY rarely do relationships carry forward without any tests or fights along the way. The simple option for most couples enduring hardships between both participants is to either let an argument break them, or let the argument make them a more secure couple that grows from disagreements and turmoil. 

Couples are forced to choose whether they realize it or not, if their relationship is worth the fight. An important key to remember for those who are thinking of breaking up is that no matter what or who you are with, there will probably be fights, but if you can never seem to get past the fights of the past, it may not be worth taking the relationship you have into the future. Only you know what is in your heart, and only you truly know what your heart is able to take, so make sure whatever you choose is worth it.

The shadow of the past holds the future hostage

"The shadow of the past holds the future hostage."

The shadow of the past will hold the future hostage only if you let it. The wonderful thing about life is that we all have a chance in every single second of it to change our future. Think about it, with every breath we take, with every thought we think, and with every word we utter, we have the chance to become someone who we never presented ourselves as before. 

To a certain extent the past might always have at least a portion of the future hostage, but truthfully if we are willing to transform our lives and use the past as a stepping-stone for our future endeavors the shadow that our pasts will cast on our future will barely be visible. We must never forget where we came from, but we must also never forget that as long as we believe, there is always hope for a brighter future.

Someone taking your love for granted

"Dear friend, you are not a boomerang; therefore once he throws you away you shouldn't come back. Don't take a u-turn. You are a Frisbee. Once he/she throws you away, you stay and wait for someone special to pick you up. Stay on the one-way road. Love, someone who cares."

When someone is willing to throw your love away without a care in the world, and then promptly tries to assume the relationship that they had with you like nothing ever happened, something is wrong, and chances are it would be a bad idea in accepting them as a relationship partner again. As this passage states, no one should be treated as a boomerang that can be tossed away and accepted back into someone's hands when they feel as though they are ready. 

We are all actually quite special, and if someone doesn't recognize that losing you could be one of the worst mistakes that they could ever make in their lives then they probably don't deserve a second chance. Only you and your heart can determine what is best for you, and who and what to allow in and out of your life, but always try to remember that if a person wants to be in a relationship with you, they must handily recognize your beautiful uniqueness, and should never take your love for granted.

Sometimes I take this kind of love for granted. I forget what a blessing and a gift it is. Other times I nearly reject this love because I doubt the sincerity of its source or realize how undeserving I am. Why would someone see all these faults, all these mistakes, all these cumbersome traits … and love me anyway?

Stop worrying and start living

We are always getting ready to live, but never living. Get living. 

In order to "get living" we must make the choice to stop making excuses, to stop worrying about the resources that we don't have, to stop worrying about the things that may hold us back including what we lack, and to start the journey that we desire to complete. Not everything will always be in the order in which we want before we go for our dreams, and the sooner we start is usually the sooner that we will get to a goal or a dream in which we believe in. 

Committing to living instead of "getting ready to live" is an important value in life that we all must develop in order to become successful. Not everything will always be perfect, and life will always present challenges to you that you must overcome in order to feel as though you are successful. What are you waiting on to start? Embark on your journey now, and get living!

Don't worry
Be happy

Let's promise that we'll never ever commit suicide

There are more ways than ever to find out how much life is worth living, each time you feel so lonely, so depressed and then you start believing that you don't belong here anymore, just look around you and make up your mind for a while.

Halfway around the world, I'm sure, positive, that there's someone holding more pain in his heart than I hold in mine, & he suffers much more than I do.

My lungs! They're still full of air! Even the air is encouraging me & saying that I'm still alive, fine & healthy, it will never give up on me, it's just waiting for me to get over this!!

Let's make the memory do its job, let it remind you the happy moments that you have ever experienced, I’m pretty sure they're endless!! So don't let this horrible thing that happened to you deprive you of enjoying more happy moments, because you do deserve more!!

Look at your friends & the ones who love you, think how horrible they would feel when they know you committed that awful crime, & they would even feel guilty & say: If I had shown him how much I loved him he would never think about killing himself.

Look at you!! You’re courageous enough to get yourself killed and say goodbye to nice things in life, as the moon, the stars, the sky, food, music, people… How could a living person with a beating heart between his lungs get separated from these things? That needs a high degree of bravery, so how couldn't you have the courage to face your problems and try to solve them?

& Remember, mate, God is the one who gave you life, so he would be so angry with you if you take his right of taking lives back, so be certain that whatever you're running from in your life is better, because where ever you're going to won't be a better place!!

Please, when you feel that it is the end of the world for you, just go & sit in a corner of your room & spend a few hours weeping. Cry body & drop some tears, it's okay, & you'll feel relieved later trust me, because I know, that inside you there’s still a thin ray of light, it's called hope, friend, hope...

Don't you ever say: "I'm tough I don't cry", that's absolutely wrong, well, obviously trying to make an end to your life in order to run from some troubles you're not capable of solving doesn't show any toughness!!

We keep our promises, people, so I promise & I give my word that I would never ever kill myself, because I have faith in god's mercy,& this faith gives me strength to believe that he won't let me down...

These lines are hard to understand

This quotes can be interpret as:

  1. ‎If you lose someone and the person comes back in your life, that person has changed in personality and so on.
  2. If you succeed in something it is not so wonderful if u do not have a loved one to share it with.
  3. If you fail then it could also be a great experience if u have a loved one to help u get through it all!

True, true and very much true. After losing a person had we got the same person back again. Then 'that' person wouldn't have been special. Truth unexplored till date. What that suppose to be? I don't know. Really these lines are very difficult to be accept, but genuinely its a bitterly truth. I mean it's realistic.
