Growing Old

Believe me, I always thought that I am still pretty young until... my eyes are open and realize the lines on my neck one day. Oh noooo....! I found myself thinking about all the advices and warnings about skin care, eating healthy, keeping healthy sleeping habits, etc, etc. 

Man... I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm getting o-l-d. As time passed, my circle of friends have become smaller, the topics of our conversations are becoming more mature or work-related. I find myself swimming in piles and piles of work tasks. Then I start asking myself what is the purpose of life? 

Is that it? Do I continue to struggle at work? Keeping everyone happy and getting all stressed out constantly? I find myself day-dreaming about not doing work, just sleeping at home and enjoy my me-time. In fact.... I'm only on this page because I'm procrastinating on my work which is due tomorrow morning. Sigh. Switch topic.


On a happier note, my family was here last week. It had been a really long time since we are able to gather together so I'm truly glad that I chose family time over work despite the summon from the boss. I love this photo a lot :)

OK, I think I have enough break. Resuming to zombie...........

How do you deal with conflicts?

When you have expectations, that's when disappointment comes...


1. Treat all conflicts seriously. Even when it is a small issue, treat it seriously. Pray about it.
2. Don't be quick to confront. 
3. Don't accuse.
4. Ask politely. 
5. Answer patiently.
6. Don't be quick to defend your position. 
7. Pray through the situation, ask God for peace and clarity. 
8. Seek advice from a neutral and mature leader. Because it is human's tendency to seek for those who are standing in the same opinion as ours.
9. Think about how much you are contributing to this conflict situation. How many percentage?


It is always easier to avoid conflicts. But it builds up bits by bits. And resentment comes in. I have to keep telling myself, I shouldn't expect much, I shouldn't hope much... Is that the right thing to do?

Aftermath of MH370 & MH17

People start having phobia flying. 

I was on a bumpy plane ride yesterday. The lady that sat beside me was jittery when the flight swayed up and down due to the bad weather. I've also heard of people avoiding to take flights after the incidents. 

With so much incidents happening recently, I can't help but feel skeptical when I hear people worrying about things that might/might not happen in future. I mean... Life is so fragile. Anything can happen anytime. Why worry about the future when you should cherish the time you should spend now with your love ones?

How much more should I bear? I have tried so hard, so hard and You know it. It comes to a point where I really hate what I am passionate in. Everything just doesn't go smoothly. So much of hiccups. Where do You want to deliver me?

Why do You keep asking me to be patient? You know how much impatient I can be. How quick I am in giving up. I am breaking the record of waiting already. How much more do You want to let the devil fool around with me?

But You said, it is a process that I have to go through. You said if I rush through things, I won't be able to learn through the process. You said this is a journey that I have to go through. If that is the case, I choose to obey Lord. But please be with me, never leave me alone. You know how much I need You. For You are the Lord, my redeemer, my rock. You are my Saviour. You are the reason I am here.
