Eternal Beauty

Posted By Fashionistaera on Jan 21, 2012 at 2:27PM

Such beautiful words by the eternal beauty - Audrey Hepburn

For lovely eyes, seek for the good in people
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry
For beautiful hair, let a child run his orher fingers through it once a day
For poise, walk with the knowledge you never walk alonePeople, even more than things, have to be...restored; revived;reclaimed;redeemed;never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find them at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years...
Pass these beautiful words to all the phenomenal women you know..Let them know they are lovely the way they are :-)

I had a bestfriend.
I needed her.
But she changed and I guess that I must of as well.

Things wont ever be the same.

She is not the person she used to be.

Our friendship will always be a memory longed missed and sometimes thought about.

Sometimes it's good to have a fresh start and a new beginning.

I look at her, every time
she throws a whimsical charm
her capricious ash-brown hazel orbs,
never fails to make my heart throb

and a face that's
half naked
between her
disheveled tousle

dark and wavy her locks
cascading her kiss curls
streaks of auburn in between
alluringly extra special

naughty-naughty her looks
baffling her gazes
mischievous her deeds
impish her actions

she stares like a child
that just lost a balloon,
with pouted lips,
trying to smile

magnetic that smile
takes me an extra mile
raspberry those lips,
her talks like wafers crisp

soft and shiny her skin
makes me go insane
squashy caresses her touch
she takes my heart in a pouch

the attitude she shows
my spirit and heaven, it blows
who is this gorgeous girl? I wonder
and discovered I was standing in front of the mirror

Today I am bored at work since I am the only one from my team that is here so I was doing a lot of thinking. I started to think about New Years Resolutions. I have never been big on them, but I think this year I would like to try a few that are not impossible for me. Small things that will merit big changes. So here goes....and please respond with your own...I am curious!

~Drink more water

~Continue to eat vegetarian (going on 3 months now!)

~Take Nixon on daily walks even when it is cold/raining/snowing/windy/dark, etc.

~Get a new job

~Be more patient

~Make at least 1 new friend

I think that is all for now. I don't want to have too many and then feel badly when I don't accomplish them. But I think all of these are doable and will make my life just that much better!

Merry Christmas and Happy Channukah! =)

On Being YOU

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Just like savage garden's song - crash n burn.
"becoz there has always been heartache n pain".
So you're not the only one.
And just remember "you'll breath again"

Trees That Wood

Posted By kymmeisme on May 15, 2008 at 10:24PM

Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, "Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty."

Then the second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull."

Finally the third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will always remember me."

After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of woodsmen came upon the trees. When one came to the first tree he said, "This looks like a strong tree, I think I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter" ... and he began cutting it down. The tree was happy, because he knew that the carpenter would make him into a treasure chest.

At the second tree a woodsman said, "This looks like a strong tree, I should be able to sell it to the shipyard." The second tree was happy because he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship.

When the woodsmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frightened because he knew that if they cut him down his dreams would not come true. One of the woodsmen said, "I don't need anything special from my tree so I'll take this one", and he cut it down.

When the first tree arrived at the carpenters, he was made into a feed box for animals. He was then placed in a barn and filled with hay. This was not at all what he had prayed for. The second tree was cut and made into a small fishing boat. His dreams of being a mighty ship and carrying kings had come to an end. The third tree was cut into large pieces and left alone in the dark. The years went by, and the trees forgot about their dreams.

Then one day, a man and woman came to the barn. She gave birth and they placed the baby in the hay in the feed box that was made from the first tree. The man wished that he could have made a crib for the baby, but this manger would have to do. The tree could feel the importance of this event and knew that it had held the greatest treasure of all time. Years later, a group of men got in the fishing boat made from the second tree. One of them was tired and went to sleep. While they were out on the water, a great storm arose and the tree didn't think it was strong enough to keep the men safe. The men woke the sleeping man, and he stood and said "Peace" and the storm stopped. At this time, the tree knew that it had carried the King of Kings in its boat.

Finally, someone came and got the third tree. It was carried through the streets as the people mocked the man who was carrying it. When they came to a stop, the man was nailed to the tree and raised in the air to die at the top of a hill. When Sunday came, the tree came to realize that it was strong enough to stand at the top of the hill and be as close to God as was possible, because Jesus had been crucified on it.

The moral of this story is that when things don't seem to be going your way, always know that God has a plan for you. If you place your trust in Him, He will give you great gifts. Each of the trees got what they wanted, just not in the way they had imagined. We don't always know what God's plans are for us. We just know that His ways are not our ways, but His ways are always best.

Attitude Determines Attitude

Posted By kymmeisme on May 1, 2008 at 7:28PM


I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.

I have responsibilities to fulfill today.

I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!

Have a Great Day ... Unless you have other plans.
