Sunday blues!

I've been meaning to write more on my blog. I've stored ideas and thoughts and promised myself that I would get started on them.

However, when I had the mood, I hadn't the time. When I had the time, I hadn't the mood.

I'm feeling blue today. I started the weekend with a wonderful feeling of being happy. What happened?

One of the problems with me is that when I am sad, I begin to think of all the times that the people around me are a disappointment. Is it them or is it really me? Are my expectations too high? Am I just gearing myself up for disillusionment when I expect too much?

I've always been a believer that we should expect the best of people. Yeah, I know it's too much, especially in today's world. But if we don't expect the best of people then should we expect the worst in them. Does it make it any better to anticipate the worst and find out that you were right?

People pretend to be what they are not. I’m always amazed at that. I know that no one is really one hundred per cent himself or herself. We all wear masks. I wear one as well. Does it mean that people are disappointed in me too, when I don’t measure up to their their expectations?

Hmmmm, I need to think this over.

Meanwhile, I’m going to start writing again. It’s an outlet for me. I get it off my chest and I feel lighter.

This picture was taken last Sunday, but it fits my mood today.

Don't worry about me! After a good night's sleep, I'll bounce right back! Promise!!!


My thoughts are with "Yang" during a difficult moment in life. Stay strong, my friend!

Hi there Sweetie Lita!!! This will cheer you up a bit.. ha ha. Well, well. Its normal lah. Sometimes its just the physical part also, light exercise plus lots of fresh air will do. A nice cool bath..then nice hot drink?
Its usually "Mind Over Matter" -
"If you don't Mind, It won't Matter", See SenioLita?

Rest if you must, don't quit & don't complaint. God Is Good coz he always give you the best!!!

Look less of ourselves and we'll see more of Others.

Mark: Thanks. I'll be fine.

I like the "Mind over Matter" line. I won't mind so it won't matter.

How can 'Yang' not be strong with a supportive 'Yin' beside him always?

Thanks for everything, Yin!

Wish I could be there last Sunday to change that solemn look of yours..

Yang: No worries. Eventually Yin and Yang combine and all is well again. :)
