If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help someone else. – Chinese Proverb
Joy is fruit blossomed in the heart of farmers Their smiles are meshed with toil and sweat, Patch of earth print upon their faces And on shoulders they carry huge baskets Marching towards the fields, when it is harvest… Fields are ripe, and trees are heavy with fruit Birds sing from tree tops, monkeys dance […]
Why am I so happy to see the sun rise and smell her sweet fragrance? I may not explain exactly, but this is why. Before now I slept like a log, snoring away, unconscious to the world’s drama. Nocturnal creatures crept, birds hoot. The night is innocently quiet but may have consumed many. My windows […]
Seeing a child laugh or smile at me gives me exceptional joy. As a math teacher, I am privileged to work with them. I have collected some quotes on children to celebrate my love for them. “Every child you encounter is a divine appointment.” – Wess Stafford “Children are like wet cement: whatever falls on […]
Nothing can explain this wild feeling One hungry embrace, Heart beats to same rapturous tune Of man and woman in love, One with Nature… And one with the night of fiery frost, Of glittering stars, or a rising moon, Such is love by the dark silent lake The beginning and end of the world Start […]
I wondered, too, what I had ever done to deserve the special love of this very special girl. When I used to think about you before this day happened – it had been as of a rather splendid but inaccessible young goddess of the hills and dales – the incarnation of all beauty, and truth; […]
I had many fights as I grew up. Most times, I was the one bullied and had no option but to push back. Then I thought retaliation was the best option. I could match word for word or fist for fist. Thought of forgiveness only came to me when I let it. But each time […]
… And there’s another rainstorm brewing over this town tonight. Out in the cold street, light bulbs glow here and there, but meshed in grim embrace of darkness itself. I feel the wind lick the skin on my forearm when I hold the curtain to see the rainstorm. There’s a strange but sweet smell, of […]

I like to see you laugh Turn around, watch my goofy face Let me be the reason you smile To make your pain go away Let me see curves on your mouth Dance to lyrics of my daydream Call me naughty names if you would, Call me a pigeon with one dark eye, Call me […]
Reminder, You are beautiful before they came You are beautiful after they leave
Let your heartbeat be louder than your thoughts, Let soft words to souls sorrowing, good tidings grant
Remind me daily of how lucky we are; Of green trees to climb and the free air Of distant farmland stretching into sunrise Of waterfalls and rocks that we hide & seek And numerous pretty birds that we see
These – my good vibes I give, to you My substance, my being, my happy self…
Your voice is like the Nightingales I laugh at our goofy-selves But that’s one of those signs, That I love you even more
I could describe you with colours So I look to your pout, a rose patch, You blushed when our grey eyes met, Then a smile that reminds me of glee Now your pretty face reminds me of the sun, When she rise from the back of many hills Dragging her gold blanket before farms So […]
I love the smile on your lips, The dreams you bring to me I love the taste of your pudding, And the smell of boiled walnuts I love our evening walks While we wave the sun bye I love the feel of evening rain And listening to your lullabic songs I love the memory games […]
Sometimes I smirk at myself, They say I’m confused on what I feel, But if I gave a tomato stalk a hug Then maybe what they say is true I laugh at myself… When I arrest the kitchen Searching for raw tomatoes Which refused to grow in my garden I’m angry, don’t ask why, Not […]
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. -Nicolas Chamfort
Continue in prayers -Colossians 4.2 The night is colder than the last Dreams fly away like the egret But we won’t let go yet Now cold nights are strong Even when all seem wrong We run to faith to rest Heal us now, dear Lord, Let this evil storm pass, Let the raging storm wear […]
See Mother Nature’s art See her paintings, black and white Behold gift of the rising sun, The wind a prize to be won So fly pet of the blue clouds … and friend of the wind Break forth from your cocoon Hit the silky walls wide open Fly away, you pretty butterfly Travel farther away, […]

Guess what! Heaven’s tummy is rumbling! There’s some comfort from Heaven finally! It’s been hot since weekend, coupled with the Covid-19 issue, life has been solitary. Now it’s raining heavily outside! I’m seconds away from dancing in it but the lightning is frightening. I smell the wet dust. I’m sure mushrooms will visit tomorrow, haha. […]
Fill yourself with joy. Let your inner self radiate true happiness.
I cling to hope She woke slowly But I must wait
Take flight happy birds See where the world ends Take no note of your stress Just live for another fine day
1. True happiness come from the inside By accepting and treating yourself right, Teach people love by loving yourself And seeds of peace and joy will grow 2. I drift away towards the sun ride Watching pretty clouds ride fast, My hills slowly sink – farther off Back at town, I smell gutted tomatoes

A saying goes that for every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness. Also, there’s nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons. I learned that contentment grows happiness and joy bears no grudge, considers not mistakes or failures. Consider […]

Like strong surging water worrying Seeks to drive Joy and Peace away, It throws parties for Depression and Self-pity, And gladly the duo fix what should or should not be Worrying clenches open palms, It crashes great resolutions, Reconfigures good dreams, And creates for the mind, fatal walls Like calm and still waters, Mindfulness pays […]
