Does it ever feel like trouble follows you around and won’t cut you any slack?
Sometimes it feels like you can’t buy a break and everything you try just makes things worse.
Who could blame you for feeling sorry for yourself or not forgive a little self-destructive behavior?
Bad idea.
The new way to spend down times is to lift yourself up and operate at a higher level.
Remember that what happens to you is not who you are.
It’s history.
It’s past.
Your true self takes that history and decides how to make the best possible future out of it.
You have the power to keep your attitude and values from driving into the ditch along with the events in your life.
From defeat, you can still emerge victorious.

It's My Birthday

WUHUUUU.....its my birthday today. 8th September '85 was the day the whole world was blessed with angel named Tayyaba :P

When i was young i looked lyk this :D
i Luved my outfits ;)

i luved the parties :P
enjoyed eating cake!!!

One of the benefits (really the only benefit) of having one's birthday fall on a holiday is that you can usually guarantee a long weekend in which to celebrate. I had 3 days planned of bliss and merriment which I was especially looking forward to on a couple of fronts. First, I've been working a lot of weekdays working late and just having a runnaway weekend is a bona fide treat. Second, my mom and I actually had a non-Sunday day off together which meant that we could go out and have fun while shopping. That is a very rare treat, indeed.
Saturday, it started for me before than actually the saturday started :P i recieved my first phone call by my far away friend but quite quite dear to me..PeTu... then 10 mins to 12 i started recieving msgs on n off from my mamoo, friends, juinors, collegues, loved ones...attended a huge list of calls.....n it took almost 1 hour to end up....not to miss my Gifted Brother DADDU also called me....n tht was a huge surprise for me....although i got a lil hint b4 but i still didnt get wat i was told...neways....last msg after a complete hour was of a guy(long awaited enemy i guess)....then on soo many wishes from my net friends,neighbours,univ fellows, and my social circle...... it was a blessed day indeed. i slept quite late. I woke up in the morning quite late cuz of last nite...All day went perfecty well....presents,love,happiness,surprises,Dinner.....CAKE Ofcourse :D
It was a great feeling.
I got very pretty flowers and gifts. For all my griping it was a good weekend. Having people over to visit isn't the end of the world and is actually pretty nice. Being able to help out at work. And being "forced" to wander around Target sounds like a pretty good way to spend a day off.
I've decided I really need to enjoy this year especially since this is my ambitious year. Yea! My opinion matters for one more year! Go me!
I am excited for it.
And it is only during my birthday that someone remembers my existence.
I am probably the least Zen person among my friends. Because I get so excited for the future, I’d dream up different scenarios already. I have been this way since I was small, I am always making plans for the future, and imagining things in my head.
I am so excited, that just for my birthday, but also for masters/MS(status :P), which is actually a year from now according to my dreamz :D. But I already can’t wait for it.
I wonder what would happen to me once I’m 40?
Or in the future in general, actually :D

Caught in the Candle's Light

Many years have passed us by
Each one I carefully trace
Remembering the time we shared
These moments I embrace

Strong and filled with wisdom
My kind and gentle heart
You filled me with the deepest love
My blessed work of art

Kindness did exude from you
Such peace I always found
Together with my memories
My heart to you is bound

Candle glow upon the wall
I see you standing there
Smile of love my masterpiece
This canvas heart will wear

Flicking within the night
Our shadows now will meet
Dancing in the softest light

Two hearts of love now greet

Flame of love will always burn
No matter where you are
Look upon the softest glow
You're never really far.

what is my present???

Do you worry about what is going to happen in the future, or have sad regrets about the past?
Take today to just concentrate on the present.
It’s great to learn from the past and to plan for the future, but what is happening right now is what really matters.
The past has come and gone and the future holds no guarantees. Today is the most important day.
So begin each day with a plan.
What do you want to accomplish today?
Eat healthy?
Play with your kids?
Daily, small goals will help you in the long run achieve your dreams.
Concentrate on the

Take a second look at your goals

How many times are we blind to the good in front of us because we’re looking past it for something better?
It’s like watching the track your whole life, waiting for a train to come in and never realizing that you’re sitting smack in the middle of the splendid Grand Central Station.
Take a second look at your goals.
Are they building on the good already in your life?
Are you taking full advantage of the strengths you already have?
Is it worth giving up what you have for what you might have?
In many cases, the answer is yes.
To that we say ‘go for it’ with all the enthusiasm we can muster.
Those are the meaningful goals.
If the answer is no, try reworking your goals to include ones that complement your present life rather than substitute for it.
Whatever the answer is for you, we could all use a little more appreciation for the pieces of silver in our lives.

Portray yourself to the world however you like.
But it should be consistent with your own values and beliefs.
What is truly important to you?
What do you really want to get out of your life?
The way you live your life should be reflective of that.
We all hold high ideal for ourselves, which is a good thing.
Are you working to fill these standards, or do you let good opportunities to prove yourself slip by?
Think you are a great leader or friend?
Being these things isn’t just a title, but is something proven by action as well.
You can be anything you want.

We all need support from other people.
Love, encouragement, words of advice and friendship help us do things we never thought possible.
When people are in your corner, you can feel like taking on any challenge.
As important as help from others may be, though, it all has to start with you.
If you’re waiting for someone to solve your problems, or wondering when someone is “going to do something about that”, you may be waiting a long time unless you look to yourself first.
Take responsibility for your own situation and think of what concrete steps you’ll take today to help it.
If you’re going to need help, it’s only fair that the person with the most at stake (you) is willing to make the same effort.
When someone is pulling you out of a hole and has grasped your hand, you still must take the first step to climb out, or you’re just going to be hanging there.

It can be a little humbling to admit that you need help to accomplish a goal.
Great accomplishments have been associated with one single person for all of our lives.
Christopher Columbus discovered America.
Napoleon conquered Europe.
Tiger Woods won the Masters.
If they can do that, why can’t we handle our own goals, right?
Of course, the dozens, hundreds and thousands of people that made it possible are forgotten.
You can just start with one person, however.
Someone to bounce ideas off of.
Someone to help you make the tough decisions.
Someone to just save you from tripping over your own feet in the rush to meet your goal.

Just one person is all it takes, and you’ve doubled your goal achievement power.

Think on this...

Use it or lose it. Got something you’re good at?
Have some resources at your disposal?
Keeping them to yourself only wastes a great opportunity to leave your mark.
Wealth comes in many forms – money, talent, knowledge, energy.
The wealth you share with the world only grows with the sharing.
Leave it unused and it’ll soon leave you.
Eventually, your talents will start to shrivel and die.
Knowledge will fade.
No one will be better off and you’ll have nothing to show for it.
But by combining your force with the force of others, you have the chance to build something special.
You can nourish your skills and become a better person for it.
Sharing your wealth brings the kind of nourishment that can keep you alive and full of life for years to come.

Interesting Management Stories

Story # 1

It's a fine sunny day in the forest and a lion is sitting outside his cave, lying lazily in the sun. Along comes a fox, out on a walk.

Fox: "Do you know the time, because my watch is broken"
Lion: "Oh, I can easily fix the watch for you"

Fox: "Hmm... But it's a very complicated mechanism, and your big claws will only destroy it even more."
Lion: "Oh no, give it to me, and it will be fixed"

Fox: "That's ridiculous! Any fool knows that lazy lions with great claws cannot fix complicated watches"
Lion: "Sure they do, give it to me and it will be fixed"

The lion disappears into his cave, and after a while he comes back with the watch which is running perfectly. The fox is impressed, and the lion continues to lie lazily in the sun, looking very pleased with himself. Soon a wolf comes along and stops to watch the lazy lion in the sun.

Wolf: "Can I come and watch TV tonight with you, because mine is broken"
Lion: "Oh, I can easily fix your TV for you"
Wolf: "You don't expect me to believe such rubbish, do you? There is no way that a lazy lion with big claws can fix a complicated TV
Lion: "No problem. Do you want to try it?"

The lion goes into his cave, and after a while comes back with a perfectly fixed TV. The wolf goes away happily and amazed.

Scene : Inside the lion's cave. In one corner are half a dozen small and intelligent looking rabbits who are busily doing very complicated work with very detailed instruments. In the other corner lies a huge lion looking very pleased with himself.

Story # 2

It's a fine sunny day in the forest and a rabbit is sitting outside his burrow, tippy-tapping on his typewriter. Along comes a fox, out for a walk.

Fox: "What are you working on?"
Rabbit: "My thesis."
Fox: "Hmm... What is it about?"
Rabbit: "Oh, I'm writing about how rabbits eat foxes."

Fox: "That's ridiculous ! Any fool knows that rabbits don't eat foxes!
Rabbit: "Come with me and I'll show you!"

They both disappear into the rabbit's burrow. After few minutes, gnawing on a fox bone, the rabbit returns to his typewriter and resumes typing.

Soon a wolf comes along and stops to watch the hardworking rabbit.

Wolf: "What's that you are writing?"
Rabbit: "I'm doing a thesis on how rabbits eat wolves."

Wolf: "you don't expect to get such rubbish published, do you?"
Rabbit: "No problem. Do you want to see why?"

The rabbit and the wolf go into the burrow and again the rabbit returns by himself, after a few minutes, and goes back to typing. Finally a bear comes along and asks, "What are you doing?

Rabbit: "I'm doing a thesis on how rabbits eat bears."
Bear: "Well that's absurd!"

Rabbit: "Come into my home and I'll show you"

Scene : As they enter the burrow, the rabbit introduces the bear to the lion.

All My Tears

by Julie Miller

When I go don’t cry for me
In my father’s arms I’ll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I’ll be whole

Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of Jesus’ face
And I will not be ashamed
For my savior knows my name

It don’t matter where you bury me
I’ll be home and I’ll be free
It don’t matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches lie
Come and eat from heaven’s store
Come and drink and thirst no more

So weep not for me my friend
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to him
Who will raise the dead again

It won’t matter where you bury me
I’ll be home and I’ll be free
It won’t matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

i'm free atlast

Now ... Beauty is just a matter of taste and will ! I mean ... If you wanna see the beauty outside , you will! If you totaly refuse it ... You'll see nothing beautiful! I'm tired! Really tired ! But happy ! It was a great day ... I'll go to sleep now ... Just think a bit of it : "Wise is the one who knows nothing's bad in Universe! Just the way you look at it may be bad !" It's a qoute combined with some of my thoughts and words ... Never mind !

Don't wanna turn around again!
It's just a bargain!
And again ...

I can see between his lines ...
There were so many times ...

When I believed the text ...
Asked "What's next?!" ...

Don't wanna let him get me again!
Don't wanna let him know me again!
I'm tired!
I'm tired!

So much pain!
Caused by my chain!
Set me free!

As I wanna be ...

You can see in my eyes ...
There were so many tries!
You can see in my bleeding heart ...
You threw the last dart!

There are no more tries ...
There are no more lies ...
Just wanna see you gone ...

Please remember how to run!

You just have to leave, boy ! I'm gonna take my path ... You're gonna take yours ... And we'll be fine! Really ! I mean I will ! I can bet on it this time ... Just go ... Please set me free ... I can't leave 'till you unlock the chains ...
