Friendship “A to Z “

Acepts you as you are
Believes in “you”
Calls you just to say “HI”
Doesn’t give up on you
Envisions the whole of you (even the unfinished parts)
Forgives your mistakes
Gives unconditionally
Helps you
Invites you over
Just “be” with you
Keeps you close at heart
Loves you for who you are
Makes a difference in your life
Never Judges
Offer support
Picks you up
Quiets your fears
Raises your spirits
Says nice things about you
Tells you the truth when you need to hear it
Understands you
Values you
Walks beside you
X-plains thing you don’t understand
Yells when you won’t listen and
Zaps you back to reality

က်ေနာ္ အဂၤလိပ္စာနဲ႔ ပတ္သက္ရင္ သိပ္မသိပါဘူး။ ဟိုအရင္လက အဂၤလိပ္လစဥ္ မဂၢဇင္း တစ္အုပ္ဖတ္ရင္း ရယ္လည္းရယ္ရ ဗဟုသုတလည္း ရလို႔ မွတ္ထားၿပီး အခု အားလံုးကို ျပန္ျဖန္႔ေ၀ ေပးခ်င္တာပါ။ အဓိက အဂၤလိပ္စာမွာ ရွိတဲ့ ပုဒ္ျဖတ္ ပုဒ္ရပ္ Punctuation ကို သတိမထားဘဲ ျဖတ္ခ်င္တဲ့ေနရာမွာ ျဖတ္လို႔ ျဖစ္ခဲ့ရတဲ့ ကေမာက္ကမေလးေတြပါ။
အဂၤလိပ္စာ ပါေမာကၡ တစ္ေယာက္က သင္ပုန္းမွာ ဒီလုိ ေရးလိုက္ပါတယ္။

Mom’s love

When you were 1 year old, she fed you and bathed you.
You thanked her by crying all night long.

When you were 11 years old, she took you and your friends to the movies.

When you were 12 years old, she warned you not to watch certain TV shows.

When you were 17, she was expecting an important call.

When you were 20, she asked whether you were seeing anyone.
You thanked her by saying, “It’s none of your business.”

When you were 21, she suggested certain careers for your future.
You thanked her by saying, “I don’t want to be like you.”

When you were 22, she hugged you at your college graduation.

When you were 23, she gave you furniture for your first apartment.
You thanked her by telling your friends it was ugly.

When you were 24, she met your fiance and asked about your plans for the future.

You thanked her by telling her, “Things are different now.”

When you were 40, she called to remind you of a relative’s birthday.
You thanked her by saying you were “really busy right now.”

When you were 50, she fell ill and needed you to take care of her.
You thanked her by reading about the burden parents become to their children.

And then, one day, she quietly died. And everything you never did came crashing down like thunder on your HEART.

If she’s still around, never forget to love her more than ever …
And if she’s not, remember her unconditional love and pass it on …
Always remember to love thy mother, because you only have one mother in your lifetime !!!

By Unknown Author

Dedicated to my mom, “Mom, I love you !!!”
Mom, I am here because of you.
Mom, I am nothing without you.

Why I do not write

Because it’s too early in the morning
Because I can’t reach a pen, or pencil
Because it would mean turning over

Because I can’t find my glasses
Because there’s not enough light
Because I can’t see

Because I don’t have a pen
Because I don’t have a word processor
Because I don’t have a computer

Because there’s no electricity
Because there’s too much weather
Because no one reads Not even me

Because paper’s too expensive
Because the paper is too wide
Because the paper is too white

Because a picture is worth a 1000 words
Because everything goes without saying
Because words fail me

Because I’m speechless
Because things are indescribable
Because it can’t be put into words

Because I am a man of few words
Because I took back my words
Because I had to eat my words

Because words are yesterday’s papers
Because it’s all been said before
Because words have lost all meaning

Because I just wrote to get attention
Because I just wrote to impress people
Because I didn’t really mean it

Because it never got me sex
Because it never kept me dry
Because I never won a prize

Because there’s no call for it
Because there’s no future in it
Because there’s no money in it

Because my father told me not to
Because my teacher said I couldn’t
Because I can’t write in 50 words or less

Because I can’t write a topic paragraph
Because I can’t diagram a sentence
Because I can’t follow directions

Because I have a chronic fatigue syndrome
Because I have attention deficit disorder
Because I have diminished capacity

Because I’m a substance abuser
Because I only wrote when I was loaded
Because I’m in denial

Because people never write back
Because I wrote you first
Because it’s too late for the mailman

Because I’m bored
Because I’m too excited
Because I’d rather not say

Because I have not begun to write
Because I already wrote
Because everything’s been written

Because I’m hungry
Because I want to watch TV
Because I want sex

Cause I don’t want to
Cause I don’t have to
Cause you can’t make me

Because I have nothing to prove
Because actions speak louder than words
Because words were taken from my mouth

Because I cannot tell lies
Because words aren’t worth paper
Let’s not mince words Just because

Besides I can’t get published
Besides I’ve already published
Besides there’s no point publishing

Besides this won’t be published
Besides no reader will finish it
Besides I didn’t finish writing it

By Dennis Saleh

Thanks to my friend, AKO, for sharing this peom.

When my time comes

I’ve been thinking for a long time about what we do in our life ….
ကၽြန္ေတာ္တို႔ဘ၀မွာ ဘာေတြလုပ္ေနၾကလဲဆိုတာ စဥ္းစားေနတာ ေတာ္ေတာ္ၾကာၿပီ။


We start by being taught in school how to become good citizens.
ၿမိဳ႕ႀကီးသား၊ ႏိုင္ငံ႔သားေကာင္း ပီသေအာင္ ဘယ္လုိေနမလဲ ဆိုတာ ေက်ာင္းမွာသင္ၾကားျခင္းျဖင့္ ကၽြန္ေတာ္တို႔စတင္ခဲ့တယ္။


We spend a great part of our childhood studying,
ငယ္စဥ္ကေလးဘ၀ရဲ႕ အခ်ိန္ေတာ္ေတာ္မ်ားမ်ားကို သင္ယူျခင္းနဲ႔ပဲ ကုန္လြန္ခဲ႔တယ္။

and finally we get the diploma that will ensure us “the position we deserve”.
ကၽြန္ေတာ္တို႔ ေတာင္းတတဲ့အဆင့္အတန္းကို အာမခံခ်က္ေပးႏိုင္မယ့္ ဘြဲ႕ကို ေနာက္ဆံုးေတာ့ရၿပီ။

We participate to the increase of unemployment

But we need some time more
ဒါေပမယ့္ ကၽြန္ေတာ္ အခ်ိန္နည္းနည္း ပိုလိုအပ္တယ္။

အရာရာ ၿပီးျပည့္စံုဖို႔။

Gosh! One day they tell they can do without you.
ဗုေဒၶါ။ တစ္ေန႔ေတာ့ သင္မရွိလည္း ျဖစ္ပါတယ္လို႔ သူတို႔ ေျပာလာတယ္။

You are the only one longing for the hours to pass
အခ်ိန္ေတြ ျမန္ျမန္ကုန္ဖို္႔ ေမွ်ာ္လင့္ေနတယ္။

သင္႔ရဲ႕ ေနာက္ဆံုးအခ်ိန္ ေရာက္တဲ့အထိပဲ။

Upon this evaluation, an idea came to my mind on how to improve my life.

ခရီးမ်ားမ်ားထြက္ဖို႔ ႀကိဳးစားမယ္။

No, karaoke I’ll never do, but I believe I’ll sing more.
ကာရာအိုေကေတာ့ သြားမဆိုပါဘူး။ ဒါေပမယ့္ သီခ်င္း မ်ားမ်ားဆိုႏိုင္မယ္လို႔ ယံုၾကည္တယ္။


I’ll go more times to the seaside.

I’ll make my best to cook tasty food.
အရသာရွိတဲ့ အစားအေသာက္ေတြကို ခ်က္ႏိုင္ဖို႔ အတတ္ႏိုင္ဆံုး ႀကိဳးစားမယ္။

I’ll join my friends’ warmth.

A bit love more.
အခ်စ္ေမတၱာ ပိုပိုသာသာနဲ႔။

I’ll be happier to get news from my friends …

and achieve together common objectives.
တူညီတဲ့ ပန္းတိုင္၊ ရည္မွန္းခ်က္ဆီ အတူတကြ ေရာက္ေအာင္သြားမယ္။


I can’t be sure, but I believe it worths trying.
ကၽြန္ေတာ္ သိပ္ေတာ့ မေသခ်ာဘူး။ ဒါေပမယ့္ ႀကိဳးစားဖို႔တန္တယ္ဆိုတာေတာ့ ကၽြန္ေတာ္ ယံုၾကည္တယ္။

“Well, say what you want, but I am a nice guy!”
`ေကာင္းၿပီ။ မင္းႀကိဳက္တာေျပာေလ။ ဒါေပမယ့္ ကၽြန္ေတာ္က လူေတာ္တစ္ေယာက္ေနာ္။´

I’ll co-operate clean the world from nasty people.

လူမိုက္ေတြကို ရွင္းထုတ္ပစ္ဖို႔ ကၽြန္ေတာ္ ၀ိုင္း၀န္းကူညီမယ္။

No harm from a glass more.
ဖန္ခြက္တစ္ခြက္ေၾကာင့္ ဒုကၡ မေရာက္ေစရဘူး။

And I hope they won’t stop me

ၿပီးေတာ့ သူတို႔ ကၽြန္ေတာ့ကို စည္းျပင္မထုတ္ဘူးလုိ႔ ေမွ်ာ္လင့္ပါတယ္။

I do not know whether it is good for everybody, but I’m sure that at least I will have had a wonderful time ….
ဒါဟာအားလံုးအတြက္ ေကာင္းမေကာင္း ကၽြန္ေတာ္မသိဘူး။ ဒါေပမယ့္ အနည္းဆံုးေတာ့ ႏွစ္လိုဖြယ္ အခ်ိန္ကာလေတြ ပိုင္ဆိုင္လာမွာ ေသခ်ာပါတယ္။
which by the way is what counts more.
ဒီနည္းလမ္းအတိုင္း က်င့္သံုးၾကမယ္ဆိုရင္ေပါ႔။

DON’T YOU THINK SO?
မင္းေကာ အဲဒီလိုမထင္ဘူးလား။

How much water do you need a day?

Water is an important structural component of skin cartilage, tissues and organs. For human beings, every part of the body is dependent on water.
Our body comprises about 75% water:

  • the brain has 85%,
  • blood is 90%,
  • muscles are 75%,
  • kidney is 82%
  • and bones are 22% water.

The functions of our glands and organs will eventually deteriorate if they are not nourished with good, clean water.
The average adult loses about 2.5 litres water daily through perspiration, breathing and elimination. Symptoms of the body’s deterioration begins to appear when the body loses 5% of its total water volume. In a healthy adult, this is seen as fatigue and general discomfort, whereas for an infant, it can be dehydrating. In an elderly person, a 5% water loss causes the body chemistry to become abnormal, especially if the percentage of electrolytes is overbalanced with sodium.One can usually see symptoms of aging, such as wrinkles, lethargy and even disorientation. Continuous water loss over time will speed up aging as well as increase risks of diseases.
If your body is not sufficiently hydrated, the cells will draw water from your bloodstream, which will make your heart work harder. At the same time, the kidneys cannot purify blood effectively. When this happens, some of the kidney’s workload is passed on to the liver and other organs, which may cause them to be severely stressed. Additionally, you may develop a number of minor health conditions such as constipation, dry and itchy skin, acne, nosebleeds, urinary tract infection, coughs, sneezing, sinus pressure, and headaches.
So, how much water is enough for you? The minimum amount of water you need depends on your body weight. A more accurate calculation, is to drink an ounce of water for every two pounds of body weight.
Here is the calculation for your minimum water need per day

Happiness is a voyage

We convince ourselves that life will be better once we are married, have a baby, then another.

Then we get frustrated because our children are not old enough, and that all will be well when they are older.

Then we are frustrated because they reach adolescence and we must deal with them. Surely we’ll be happier when they grow out of the teen years.

We tell ourselves our life will be better when our spouse gets his/her act together, when we have a nicer car, when we can take a vacation, when we finally retire.

The truth is that there is no better time to be happy than right now.
If not, then when?
Your life will always be full of challenges. It is better to admit as much and to decide to be happy in spite of it all.

For the longest time, it seemed that life was about to start. Real life.
But there was always some obstacle along the way, an ordeal to get through, some work to be finished, some time to be given, a bill to be paid. Then life would start.
I finally came to understand that those obstacles were life.

That point of view helped me see that there isn’t any road to happiness.
HAPPINESS is the road.

So, enjoy every moment.
Stop waiting for school to end, for a return to school, to lose ten pounds, to gain ten pounds, for work to begin, to get married, for Friday evening, for Sunday morning, waiting for a new car, for your mortgage to be paid off, for spring, for summer, for fall, for winter, for the first or the fifteenth of the month, for your song to be played on the radio, to die, to be reborn …. before deciding to be happy.

Happiness is a voyage, not a destination.
There is no better time to be happy than
NOW!
Live and enjoy the moment.

Paradox of our lives

Today we have bigger houses and smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees, but less common sense;
More knowledge, but less judgment.

We have more experts, but more problems;
More medicine, but less wellness.

We spend too recklessly,
laugh too little,
drive too fast,
get to be angry too quickly,
stay up too late,
read too little,
watch TV too much,
and pray too seldom,

We multiplied our possessions, but reduce our values.

We talk too much, love too little and lie too often.

We’ve learned how to make living, but not a life.

We’ve added years to life, not life to years.

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less.

We buy more, enjoy it less.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back.
But have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbors.

We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space.

We’ve split the atom but not our prejudice.

We write more, learn less; plan more, but accomplish less.

We’ve learn to rush, but not to wait.

We have higher incomes, but lower morals.

We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies;
But have less communications.

We are long on quantity, but less in quality.

These are the time of fast foods and slow digestion;
Tall men, and short character;
More leisure, and less fun;
More kinds of foods, but less nutrition;
Two incomes, but more divorce;
Fancier houses, but broken homes.

That’s why i propose, that as of today, you do not keep anything for special occasion, because everyday you live is a special occasion.

Search for knowledge, read more.

Sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to your needs.

Spend more time with your family and friends.

Eat your favorite foods, and visit the places you love.

Life is a chain of moment of enjoyment, not only about survival.

Use your crystal goblets, do not save your best perfume;
And use it every time you feel you want it.

Remove from vocabulary phrases like “One of these days” and “Someday“.
Let’s write that letter we thought of writing “
One of these days“.

Let’s tell our families and friends how much we love them.
Do not delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life.

Everyday, every hour, and every minute is special.
And you don’t know if it will be your last.

If you’re too busy to take the time to send this message to someone you love, and you tell yourself you will send it “One of these days“.
So believe me “one of these days”,

YOU MAY NOT BE HERE TO SEND IT

Nine basic personality types

A group of psychologist developed these shapes. They have been tested worldwide, over a period of several years. As they received feedback from their research, they carefully adjusted the color and/or form of each shape, then tested again, until they were left with a highly successful set of shapes. Select the shape below that appeals to you the most and then click on that shape to read about your personality.
These represent the nine basic personality types. See which personality type you are based on your selection!
Look Below To Find Out What Each Shape Means.

1. Introspective ~ Sensitive ~ Reflective

You come to grips more frequently and thoroughly with yourself and your environment than do most people. You detest superficiality; you’d rather be alone than have to suffer through small talk. But your relationships with your friends are highly intensive, which gives you the inner tranquility and harmony that you need in order to feel good. However it is no problem for you to be alone for extended periods of time, without becoming bored.

2. Independent ~ Unconventional ~ Unfettered

You demand a free and unattached life for yourself that allows you to determine your own course. You have an artistic bent in your work or leisure activities. Your urge for freedom sometimes causes you to do exactly the opposite of what expected of you. Your lifestyle is highly individualistic. You would never blindly imitate what is “in”; on the contrary, you seek to live according to your own ideas and convictions, even if this means swimming against the tide.

3. Dynamic ~ Active ~ Extroverted

You are quite willing to accept certain risks and to make a strong commitment in exchange for interesting and varied work. Routine, in contrast, tends to have a paralyzing effect on you. What you like most is to be able to play an active role in events. In doing so, your initiative is highly pronounced.

4. Down to Earth ~ Well-Balanced ~ Harmonious

You value a natural style and love that which is uncomplicated. People admire you because you have both feet planted firmly on the ground and they can depend on you. You give those who are close to you security and space. You are perceived as being warm and human. You reject everything that is garish and trite. You tend to be skeptical toward the whims of fashion trends. For you, clothing has to be practical and unobtrusively elegant.

5. Professional ~ Pragmatic ~ Self-assured

You take charge of your life, and place less faith in your luck and more in your own deeds. You solve problems in a practical, uncomplicated manner. You take a realistic view of the things in your daily life and tackle them without wavering. You are given a great deal of responsibility at work, because people know that you can be depended upon. Your pronounced strength of will projects your self-assurance to others. You are never fully satisfied until you have accomplished your ideas.

6. Peaceful ~ Discreet ~ Non-Aggressive

You are easy-going yet discreet. You make friends effortlessly, yet enjoy your privacy and independence. You like to get away from it all and be alone from time to time to contemplate the meaning of life and enjoy yourself. You need space, so you escape to beautiful hideaways, but you are not a loner. You are at peace with yourself and the world, and you appreciate life and what this world has to offer.

7. Carefree ~ Playful ~ Cheerful

You love a free and spontaneous life. And you attempt to enjoy it to the fullest, in accordance with the motto: “You only live once.” You are very curious and open about everything new; you thrive on change. Nothing is worse than when you feel tied down. You experience your environment as being versatile and always good for a surprise.

8. Romantic ~ Dreamy ~ Emotional

You are a very sensitive person. You refuse to view things only from a sober, rational standpoint. What your feelings tell you is just as important to you. In fact, you feel it is important to have dreams in life, too. You reject people who scorn romanticism and are guided only by rationality. You refuse to let anything confine the rich variety of your moods and emotions.

9. Analytical ~ Trustworthy ~ Self-assured

Your momentary sensitivity represents that which is of high quality and durable. Consequently, you like to surround yourself with little “gems,” which you discover wherever others overlook them. Thus, culture plays a special role in your life. You have found your own personal style, which is elegant and exclusive, free from the whims of fashion. Your ideal, upon which you base your life, is cultured pleasure. You value a certain level of culture on the part of the people with whom you associate.
