we can’t dream ourselves into a strong character, we can only hammer and forge ourselves into one.. – Remembering Henry David Thoreau
Month: May 2009
I missed 10 posts..
in May.. very out of character..
can’t change the past, can only change the future.. and here’s hoping for a June without misses.. :)
that I am learning more from the learning blogs around than anything else.. thanks to nishanth, mom and tejasvi..
here’s one from Nishanth..
Don’t over promise..
It might be a good way to start things but you can be sure that if it doesn’t happen, people will not come back to you!
How often we wish for another chance
to make a fresh beginning.
A chance to blot out our mistakes
And change failure into winning.
It does not take a new day
To make a brand new start,
It only takes a deep desire
To try with all our heart.
To live a little better
And to always be forgiving
And to add a little sunshine
To the world in which we’re living.
So never give up in despair
And think that you are through,
For there’s always a tomorrow
And the hope of starting new.
– Helen Steiner Rice
I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen those spiders..
trying to climb on a steep wall.. they climb 10 paces.. fall 15.. and this goes on and on..seemingly impossible.. but they never give up..
let’s learn from them.:)
Every day is not sunday..
I like this one..
always treat your boss like you are meeting him/her for the first time..
(it doesn’t matter if you were being killed, humiliated by the same person or if you just had a great time partying or sharing a light moment the day before..)
It doesn’t mean we have to stick to it though..
Know how to pace yourself..
you may win a battle but you will lose the war otherwise..
Just for today..
Just for today: I will try to live through this day only,
and not tackle all my problems at once.
I can do something for twelve hours that
would appall me if I felt that I had to
keep it up for a lifetime.
Just for today:I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study.
I will not be a mental loafer.
I will read something that requires effort.
Thought and concentration.
Just for today: I will have a program.
I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it.
I will save myself from two pests: Hurry and Indecision’s.
Just for today: I will have a quiet half
hour all by myself, and relax. During this half hour,
sometime I will try to get a better perspective of
Just for today: I will be un-afraid.
Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what
is beautiful,and to believe that as I give to the
world, so the world will give back to me.
