An inspired piece of work

It has been my beacon of light when I used to complain at the way life is treating me. It gives me wisdom and inspiration for living life to the full.

by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others,
even the dull and ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be
greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career
however humble;
it is a real possession in the
changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you
to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit
to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore, be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham,
drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Something Is Missing In My Life

For years now, I've been searching feverishly for something.

I've always had that feeling that I'm supposed to be doing something else much more important than the usual doings.

This feeling never goes away.

It's with me every day.

It's a nagging feeling that reminds me when I'm traveling, at home, in the shower, and in bed.

It tells me to keep searching.

It pushes me from within and always brings me back to the spirit - back on track.

This feeling drives me and never stops.

It is inspiration.

Have you ever had this feeling?

I know I'm not the only one feeling this but I just wanna vent this out.

Am brought up by my family with discipline through catholic religion so I know it’s not religion.

It’s not human relationship too..

So I think…

I had non-marital relationships but still I felt some piece of my personality maybe or my life missing.

I don’t know… I can’t even grope the right words to express it…

I just don’t know… Maybe I still didn't realize and found out what I really want and what makes me happy? ~ sigh ~

It’s not most of the time though… It’s just some time when I'm not preoccupied.

BTW I'm 25…. not young : )

I think I have to take more time for myself and use it to “think

Think about everything that has happened and that is happening around me now…

And only ME have the answer to this question and even though it is hard to realize…

It is deep in my heart…

I just need time and patience to figure it out… and I am very optimistic that I will find it

I believe that GOD stands beside me through it all.
