You Are The Miracle

2 weeks ago when UPSR 08 was released, there was this article on the papers that reported about a girl who had cancer and still scored very good result. It was headline news on Borneo Post, Sarawak's exclusive newspaper. A week after that, I read the papers again and saw her reappeared, instead of making headlines, she made it to the classifieds, this time in the obituary.


A week ago, there she was talking about dreams and the future, a week later she is gone. It makes me very sad to read that kind of news. Perhaps it is just me being emotional, but this kind of story rips my heart off.


Although I'm a science stream student up to form 6, I have never been a great fan of science. Anyway I would still like to borrow a quote from Albert Einstein, a not so scientific one that says,
"there are only two ways to live your life, one is as if nothing is a miracle, and the other is as though everything is a miracle".


Many of us are truly blessed with a lot of things, but seldom do we give thanks for any of them. Instead it has been the general attitude of men and women like me to complain and worry over the petty things of life. And from time to time we hear news like people committing suicide over love and failures in life. Like the one that happened in Kuching this year,I could remember the commotion early in school where friends were talking about how a girl jumped down from a 3 storey shophouse in MJC (Kuching area) because her boyfriend left her. I was amazed, 3 storey also can die. Obviously she wasn't that bright, she must have jumped head down. Personally I think those who acted that way rightly deserve to die. The greatest gift in live is life itself. And he who denies it is not worthy to receive one.



Bring tea for the Tillerman
Steak for the sun
Wine for the women who made the rain come
Seagulls sing your hearts away
'Cause while the sinners sin, the children play
Oh Lord how they play and play
For that happy day, for that happy day




If you can't understand what was that I may not be able to help you in it.It's the same reason why I cannot see the solution to math in geometry deduction. Haha.....


My friends, there are only two ways to live your life, one is as if nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is one. Have a nice day =D

the 3rd option would be living life knowing that your Creator loves you and that you will have more purpose in life once you get to know Him =)

Its true...often all of us tend to focus on the petty things in life than actually living life.

i think i'm the only malay dude who read this blog. i believe this post made us all realise that it is important to appreciate life and not make hasty decisions due to trivial reasons. we may plan but the Great one up there decides for us. we all have a purpose in life. it takes time to know what it is. let's not waste that.
