Beyond Kindness


Today i was shown that it really takes so much more than just kindness when helping someone who is so incorrigible, rude and full of herself.

Over the years I’ve witnessed generosity and wisdom over the years from my uncles and recently even humility which is totally unexpected from one of my uncles that had really touched us which also trigger this whole “project” to action.

Last night my elder cousins really had me at awed (despite my fuming anger at an ingrate) as they displayed an immense amount of grace, empathy and patience towards someone who doesn’t deserve it at all but probably need it more than the rest when dealt with.

That when i realize my kindness is limited in terms of my review of the receiver’s attitude as i let judgment and anger get it the way of the intention. I have underestimate myself, thinking i be able to deal with a difficult person but even so, I am glad i did else i would have missed out another lesson i need to put myself through.

To be honest, none of us know if this will turn out worth it or not but we just gotta give her and ourselves that one last try so that we can all move on with no “if only”. The things we have heard last week, an arrogant spoilt daughter who see wrong in everyone else except the one she faced in the mirror, unappreciative, bitter, very clever, twisted words vs a mother whose biggest mistake is spoiling her daughter too much, was so quick to reflect herself and take the blame, letting guilt gnaw and so willing to be the one taking a step back and I wonder how can so much love turn someone to a monster.. When will this pair of mother daughter ever reconcile, we dont know…

During this process of helping, I looks like i will need to rely and pray to god for his strength and wisdom on dealing with difficult people to attain the below..

Proverbs 12:16 tells us that “a fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.”

I have a long way to go from fool to prudent (not even sure if i will ever be able to master that) but I am so thankful that i have these amazing roles models in my life to look up and be inspired by them.

sinking in


虽然是在预料之内的事但看着一个个本来都心善的熟悉面孔,一步一步的,因为环境,人,和不公平一面之辞开始被染化,我心寒的程度却是在我预料之外的。

本来和乐融融,互相扶持,温馨开心的常景,要慢慢开始变成我最嫌恶但又熟悉的那小人互相背后捅人的难堪的战场。

可怕的是。。这是慢慢,慢慢的在眼前恶化中。

我縱身躍入未來的河流
試著一如往常遊戲的姿態
你卻站在過去的岸上對我望
和那些啣著記憶的鴿子

Jimmy and his starry starry night


真的越来越喜欢幾米的作品。。
每看一次,每读一篇
都会打动我的心。

短短的几行字,
一本大人世界但象小朋友的故事书。。
每一篇都让我着迷,沉溺。。

简单的字
非凡的感动

Where there is darkness. there will be light.. – Jimmyspa

有阴影的地方,必定有光
孤单时,仍要守护你心中的思念
那时候,未来遥远而没有形状,梦想还不知道该叫什么名字。
我常常一个人,走很长的路,在起风的时候觉得自己像一片落叶。
仰望星空,我想知道:有人正从世界的某个地方朝我走来吗?
像光那样,从一颗星到达另外一颗星。
后来,你出现了。又离开了。我们等候著青春,却错过了彼此……
但我永远会记得,那年夏天,最灿烂、最寂寞的星空

Filtering through


I was browsing through the usual social platforms and came across a not so nice sharing of thought by a friend. A friend i known to be nice but bitchy and really petty which i always erm…. try to keep a friendly distance whenever i can.

It just dawned to me how our character is like a filter. When an action or word like goes through us, how do we filter it? Is the processed water then now, purified or instead..dirtied ?

The processed water shows how clean our filter is, or how dirty it is and then it serves a great reminder to perhaps change it before we drown in our own mud and stink ourselves.

I want that water flowing out of me to be cleaner. 2013 – watch me!
