painful weapons

A pinch to the soul from the @thenotebookoflove… Read on! 😉

“Live without pretending, love without depending, listen without defending, speak without offending.

Only when you compete with yourself can you become a better you. If you decide to compete with others, you’ll end up bitter.

Excuses hold you back. Action moves you forward.

Confidence is admitting who you are, what you’ve done, and loving yourself for what you’ve become, no matter what others think of you.

People will choose to blame their circumstances on fate or bad luck. Very few will admit it’s mainly the choices they have made.

Be happy in front of people who don’t like you, it kills them.

People may hate you for being different and not living by society’s standards, but deep down, they wish they had the courage to do the same.

Sometimes we put up walls. Not to block people out, but to see who cares enough to knock them down.

You made your own choices, so don’t blame anyone for the consequences.

If you don’t mean something, don’t say it, words are painful weapons that can’t be undone.”

V-Day

February 14, Valentine’s day…

If you want to know the history, search it from the Internet or watch from the TV shows… which is incidentally the “in” topic this month…

I find it weird why people are making such a big fuss with this so called “V Day”. I wonder if this is the only day wherein couples give each other a special surprise? Just saying! Don’t get me wrong,  I don’t want to sound like a bitter and pathetic old maid.  Although, I’m old but I’m not bitter and pathetic.  😉

As of this moment, my most memorable V Day so far happened few years ago… That’s when I received a bouquet of roses, a ring, and a note. And the catch? I did not give him anything at all.  :p  In a way, I considered what he gave me during V Day as a bonus because V Day for me is whenever I received tiny notes from him every now and then.

However, that’s all in the past.

Up until now, I still prefer handwritten letter or a short note rather than a text message, chat or email. Maybe I’m abnormal but I find the traditional method more appealing and romantic. :p  And to answer that lingering question at the back of your mind, yes, I’m single but my heart is taken. :p   

Anyway, I will spend the V Day with my friends this year. It’s another impromptu outing that often end up wherever our feet will lead us. Ha!

As they say, if you can’t beat them, join them! Let’s all feel the breeze… the love in the air… and the romantic atmosphere…

Happy Heart’s Day everyone!
Enjoy and careful, careful!
Love, love, love!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Cheers!
