MY MIDWEEK MOOD.......a loving person

Love is pure and simple.....

Love, unfortunately, has become one of the most misunderstood and confused words in any language. some want it to mean nothing more than the attraction between the sexes. others want it to mean no more than desire and its satisfaction. And when others speak of it, it seems that love and sex are synonymous. Its all so sad because love understoods any of these is hardly love. It is confused: the wrapper is taken for the content.

Love is really like life. It is so vast in its meaning, so varied in its expressions and so rich in its manifestations that one has to be fully alive in order to understand love fully. As someone wrote: " The best definition of love is a loving person.

The measure of love, then, is not what our hearts dictate or what our desires lead us to. Love is very much greater than what i now can feel. It is much more than the urges i fell within. Love is, above all, the goodness that is within me that i must share with the goodness of other persons.

MY MIDWEEK MOOD.......playing domestic goddess

Every woman is a domestic goddess inside. and what about a city woman with a busy job and social life? well, i have no kids so there is really no excuse for me not to have a perfect homelife.

how to be a domestic goddess?

first, you must have a perfectly clean home and it should mirror with a perfect grooming of yourself.

take time in preparing everything.. cleaning your home, setting the table, preparing the ingredients. do every effort to be perfect. i assure you, if your man is really in love with you. it wont fail to be un-notice.

its your home, its your kitchen, you are the masterchef. and it should look like it was done by the masterchef.

voila..... the show began....

my first domestic goddess attempt, it was in his own flat in cardiff. which i failed. i have managed to lock myself out and left the keys inside. i have to call him at his office where he was so busy. But i remember the DG quote, KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON. so i manage to sort it out with a locksmith with 47£ fee. but it was all worth it. when i saw his big smile back.

MY of walking

joy is one of the most elusive of all human experiences. joy can come from many sources. and most of where it comes from are ordinary and simple. i am very blessed to be able to discover the joys of walking. Great Britain has so many different walk paths from beginners to extreme walkers and ramblers.
check these web site for green chain walks.

bute castle

one of the many sights along the way.

beautiful parks

MY MIDWEEK MOOD........(feelings from the weekend) Awakening to your dream

(carter and me)
on our inspiring weekend to cardiff in south wales. lies this magnificent CASTELL COCH, or red Castle. The little village nearby, is where carter was born and the last place he ever felt happy and at home...i thought this place only exist on fairytale....

all the world's a stage.
and all the men and women merely players;
they have their exits and their entrances;
and one man in his time plays many parts.....
(as you like it)

life is just an illusion.
the world is a giant theatre.

in other words, we writes, produces, directs our own life path like a production.
we may choose a tragic script like hamlet, romeo and juliet. or others a romantic comedy. perhaps a Midsummer Night's Dream. or a Search for the Holy Grail.

but if we dont like our script, WE CAN CHANGE IT.

neither fate nor God chose our script- WE DID!!!!

and if it is tragic, painful or simply dull, we can decide to re-write it.

day by day, moment by moment, WE CREATE OUR OWN REALITY.

But as spiritual beings, we pick one script rather than another. WHY? because we wish to learn and grow.

our life will naturally, require personal and spiritual growth, coming to know ourselves, learning to love, overcoming blockages and limitation, expressing our potential and strengths, becoming whole, being creative and being joyful.

thank you for bringing me here carter .............:)
