After-Thots 2010 Second Quarter

"There is no small happiness or big happiness. Even a tiny whimsical bit is happiness"

6 months of 2010 has snuck past us. Its the beginning of July again.

I do not remember achieving anything during this past 6 mths.
No loved ones. No promotions. No Bonuses. Nothing.

One thing I learnt and is stil learning, accepting pple for who they are and what they do.
Even though i might not agree with everything they do.
But i must still understand that their situation and circumstances are unique.

I sometimes somehow feel that 'No man is an isle' is not an accurate/correct way of life. I feel that sometimes we need to step back and be alone. to get that feel of wot they truly want. i guess as i said before, managing our expectations of our friends, its almost like saying 'Ask not what they can do for you but what you can do for them' i know this might sound abit altrusive but frankly, this is my thots.

I really do not ask alot from my friends and buddies. (hmmmmmm.. do i?)

There are really alot of good friends to me all around... really

But yet there is this few who tugs at my heart.
I hurt when i see/hear them hurt.
I cry when i see/hear them cry.

I am mostly sadden by arguments, disagreements amongst friends. I do not understand why. really.

I mebbe tinking too naively about how everyone can just be friends and leave our differences at outside the door.

Well, that is just me. I would really love to sit down and listen to scores of stories from all my friends. how they are living their lives. how they are coping with parenthood. how they are coping with marriage. how they are working hard at keeping their lives.

The list goes on.

well.. this is getting longer... let me sum up the past 6 mths ok
