Never Say Never 

It never crossed my mind that I would work in the teaching field. I, however, was a diligent student as long as I could remember. 

Fast forward, I am now working as a teacher for students with special needs. I occasionally tutor general subjects such as English to elementary-age students. I initially said no to Math, but they brought their homework, so I had no choice other than studying Math and Science again in order to help them.

Kids nowadays don’t use this type of recorder, and so this tape recorder somehow looks “foreign” to them. I told my oldest student that I used this recorder to study TOEFL when I was young, and now, I use the same book and recorder to teach him.  

When we say “never,” there is a chance we will say “yes” in a reality or sometimes in the future. This is somewhat true in my case. How about you? 

As Pretty As Tiffany’s Jewelry 

I wish life is as pretty as Tiffany’s jewelry.

I wish I could keep my worries down to one like Tiffany’s solitaire diamond ring. 

I wish my job situation is as smooth as the surface of Tiffany’s square bracelet.

Life has its moment, just like when you expect least you actually could get more. Thus, never give up. Learn from mistakes and upgrade! 

Pray and say thank you, as soon as you open your eyes in the morning. Pray harder when you experience life turbulence. Say thank you again when life turbulence is passed. 

Smooth job is boring. Challenging job is rewarding when you look at it from healthy perspective. 

Life is actually , as pretty as Tiffany’s jewelry when each of us always have a positive attitude. 

The Complexity of Parents and Children Relationship 

Parents and children often think differently. What parents want from the child may not be the child’s preference. Likewise, culture also influences how parents raise their children and put expectation on them. All of these get tricky as the child gets older. It will even more challenging when the child grows up in a culture that is different from his/her original culture. Argument or clash could arise because the child has a different point of view from his/her parents. Both sides will argue that they are doing the right things. Both sides want to win. 

On another note, children still and should respect their parents even though they have disagreement over things. This is tough, but children must continue to exercise putting effort to adjust and negotiate with their parents in order to reduce argument. Family relationship is complicated and tough. It takes everyone’s effort to maintain equilibrium.

Life is good when one could manage both family and work life in the most neutral and healthy ways. Can you do it? 

A Prayer to A Lover

By grace through faith, I shall see you again.

You who have been so distant from me. Yet, I still think about you.

I hope to see and hear your voice. 
You who are far away from me. Yet, I still feel close to you.

Love is a sad thing, but world is sad without love.

I don’t know if I still could fall in love again, but I hope you will make me fall in love with you over and over again.

What is your ideal spouse? 

When I was young, I wanted to marry a prince charming.

When I was 15, I said I wanted to marry an architect because he could build me a nice house.

When I was 19, I wanted to marry a guy with a job and stable income.

When I was 25, I wanted to marry a guy with a job, stable income, but also someone who would travel near and far with me. 

Now, I simply want to live with reliable and financially stable guy who share similar passion and dream. 

The list could go on and on. The ideal spouse is the one who could adapt to various life-challenging situations and still love you just the way you are.
