Little Words to Live By

I believe that you can do something in an instant that will give you a heartache for life

His eyes sparkled and twinkled like a little boy when he spoke of the story. It was merely a naive question, “so how did you meet your wife”

The car accident connected us. A misfortune that changed his life. It’s been 12 years and he tells the tale as if it happened last month. I sat and listened contently. They were not strangers, just friends. The friendship blossomed into a beautiful bond.

They continued the bond despite the distance. Both went separate ways as they move on with their life journey. Yet, they kept in touch, a simple phone call every day/night. “All my money was spent on phone bills” he said. Even when he spoke, I knew if he had to do it all over again, he’ll spend that money on her. That’s love.

I envy her.

I don’t think I will ever live the day to have a long distance relationship. The emotion torment. How did they survived the years ? I am really puzzled.

Little Words to Live By

If you do something long enough, a ratio will appear

When in doubt, I look within myself and ask this question ” If I don’t do what I need to do, what will happen tomorrow ? The answer is nothing. ” I will be exactly where I am today.

I sat at the round table and looked into her eyes. I could see how empty her soul was. It was really a simple statement.

List 5 things you would do/want if money is not a concern. It took her 15 minutes to digest the statement and her small little fingers scribbled along the white piece of paper.

Many at times, we work and work, chasing the paycheck for end month. What do we really live for ? It’s astounding that many people do not know what they would do if they never had to work ever again or if they had all the money in the world, they wouldn’t know how to spend it !

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
