If I Had A Second Chance...
I'd stop looking and start seeing,
And treat everyone as a human being.
I'd stop taking and start giving,
Stop hiding and start living.
I'd do more listening and a lot less talking,
Enjoy the world and do more walking.
I'd take my eyes off my watch
and watch with my eyes,
To notice the trees and the beautiful sky.
I'd stop criticizing and show more love,
Be less forgetful and give thanks up above.
I'd be less angry and swallow my pride,
And share with the world what I have inside.
I'd stop hating and be more kind,
And give a little more of my precious time.
I'd give more encouragement
and a lot more praise,
And do a lot less judging
for I too have lost my way.
I'd get my priorities in order and straight,
Better now than never Lord,
I'm just a bit too late.
I'd stop hopelessly chasing after the wind,
From this point on a new I begin.
I'd find my way back to the God's's humble grace,
With a vow never again to lose my place,
I'm changing my life and I've made a stance,
Oh GOD , what I wouldn't give for a second chance.
It's not the destination that counts in life it's the journey.
The journey with the people we love
is all that really matters.
Such a simple truth so easily forgotten.
We have the tendency to take things for granted. And this includes people around us and even people we love. We take it for granted that the people around us will be around forever.
We delay or conveniently forget our obligations and promises until it is too late to fulfil or to make amends. Such incidents happen too many times and to many people. Have you ever heard people commenting that they had been too busy to visit their loved ones on their deathbed until it's too late? Or you hear people saying that they had been wanting to meet so and so, but kept postponing until one fine day, the so and so is gone forever and they regret it. These are all the late words.
I was pondering over the weekend how can we determine the value of people around us? One way, I thought, is to check how you would feel when the person in question is dead. This may not be easy for people who had not encountered loss of a loved one as you need to understand the agony and anguish.
So, after you have done the check and it tells you that you will feel absolutely miserable if this person is gone, then pal, it's time to do something NOW before it is too late.
Don't live to regret. (^.^)
Okie, to start with, I ask you this simple question:
Are you in a relationship with someone like this?
Then proceed into these 8 points~ (^^)
1) A possessive man.
He wants you by his side every moment. He gets upset when you need to go out with your pals, even when you only do that once in a blue moon. He calls you up many times a day just to check where you are and what you are doing. He is almost driving you crazy with his possessive antics.
2) A man vainer than you.
If he is obsessed with looking good and has more beauty and skin care products than you, doesn’t it feel weird? But If you are fishing this type of person, do think twice! :P
3) A man who seems exceptionally busy.
You can’t get hold of him, even by phone. He is not available most of the time. Whenever you call, he says he will call back. It is sufficient to believe that this man is either not very interested in you or he is seeing someone else too. If you are tagging this type of person, this person is either too shy and make himself busy but trust me, ask him out for a dinner and see if he really likes you or likes the job.
4) A man who is super stingy.
Dating expenses can amount to quite a bit, and it’s perfectly alright to go Dutch sometimes. But if this man works out your share of the bill for every meal that you eat or movie that you watch, it’s a bit too much.
5) A man who refuse to grow up.
If he can’t keep any job for long and loves bumming around, while continually asking you for pocket money, how long can such a relationship sustain? Don’t wait till he empties your pockets or gets you into debt.
6) A man who was the ex of your best friend.
Worst scenario, if he is the father or current boyfriend. Stay away from the guys of those whom you cherish your relationship with. You may lose your friendship or kinship if things go wrong.
7) A man who thinks he is so much more superior to you.
Even if he has elite education and a well-paid job, it does not mean he is always right! Dump him if he treats you condescendingly every time. You are entitled to your own opinions and decisions.
8) A man who is in a current relationship or marriage.
Don’t bank on the fact that he will leave his wife or girlfriend for you. Sometimes, he just wants to have the best of both worlds. After all, it’s not a good idea to be someone’s third party too.
Well, I’m not too sure if you think the same way? These men really do exist! I have seen them right before my eyes and in the real lives of others. If you are currently dating such a man, do you think you can accept these issues over the long term? If you can’t, probably you should think twice about the relationship. If you are always the submissive one, ask yourself why you are putting up with all these. Some women can’t face the fact that they will never be able to change their men and they end up giving in all the time. Have a good thought about it my dear.
If you think you deserve someone better in your life, maybe it’s really time to pack up and give yourself another chance. I know it takes a lot of courage to say goodbye. Just don’t leave things till it’s too late!
Anyway, I will continue to post! haha
