Appreciate things that we have, before we loose it – while we had it!!! Human are meant to be such creatures that never satisfied with what ‘we’ have. It is normal when people always tent to forget what they have instead envy of others.
So, today I’m here to share a story and advice. Enjoy your reading:
Story of a blind girl:
A blind girl hated herself because she was blind.
She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend.
He was always there for her.
She told her boyfriend, ‘If I could only see the world, I would marry
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When
the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her
He asked her, ‘Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?’
The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind.
The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her.
She hadn’t expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her
life led her to refuse to marry him.
Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying:
‘Take good care of your eyes, my dear, before they were yours, they were
This is how the human brain often works when our ‘status changes’.
Only a very few remember what life was like before and who was always by
their side in the most painful situations.
Life is a Gift:
Today before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food – Think of someone who
has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife – Think of someone who’s
crying out for a companion.
Today before you complain about life –
Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you argue about your dirty house that someone didn’t clean or
sweep -Think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive – Think of someone who must
walk the same distance.
And when you are tired and complain about your job – Think of the
unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another – Remember
that not one of us is without error.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – Put a smile on your
face and thank God you’re alive and still around.
NOW, THAT YOU’VE READ THIS, SEND IT TO THE PEOPLE YOU CARE
ABOUT & LOVE!!!
p/s: I always try to enjoy this very life of mine to the fullest and hope everyone do the same.
When talking about today’s topic, its remind me that I do like to eat. It been my favorite routine since I manage to hold up some money – eat great varieties of good food.
My childhood experience of having to see all the food while unaffordable to buy it, definitely make up this behavior of mine. Such revenge for that time – maybe 🙂
I have always consider doing all the food stuff as a great self motivation and appreciation. It sure do worth when enjoying at ‘it’ especially with my wife.
Other might get their self something much more abstracts such as thing that can be kept and hold. In my case its way too different – especially when you only have limited space to store it.
Its been my routine for each month to have such food ‘fest’ within my price though. Sometimes, thing is not as what said and done – sometimes I do exceed my limit.
Why once a month – payday of cause :). While having it at will I never tent to get stingy cause that bad deed will ruin my mood. Having good time is what I always prompt into my food fest, never get stingy or you might feel uneasy which in the end make thing bitter. Food is all about lovely and nice mood – in my case, I would like to state it as formal dinner with wife while having little talk about everything.
Cool though cause having decent conversation while enjoying the food is something people should try once in awhile. It sure boost up your mood and ease stress. Most important is being with love one :P.
Switching from one venue to another depend on my intuitions and mood that suits me well, cause I never know what we might want to eat monthly – sound nice to me. My venue will be a several rotation of Pizza hut, McDonald, Burger king, local tom yam stall, Star Buck, Nando’s and many more.
A place where I can spend 50 Ringgit while having the best of it. Not so expensive but worth the satisfaction, which sound just fine for me.
Hurm, can’t wait for next pay day 😛 Daa
We are what we eat – sound familiar isn’t?
Within today’s article I’m going to talk about the true nature of rice. This going to be short cause such fact definitely will make lot of us trill. Not to mention how we consume it each and every single day.
Human body was never meant to consume rice and yet this medieval act were done in such a need which I can put it as rice addiction. It’s been a great hurdle to change people who eat rice daily into less or zero habit. Our stomach don’t have enzymes to digest raw rice which in the same case of wheat and corn – they have to be cook first before we are able to consume it.
We are never meant to eat rice ( In my case, here in Malaysia – rice is one of the traditional food which needed in order of getting pure instant energy from it substance, carbohydrate.) So, what I really try to cope up with this articles is not to stop taking it eternity, but reduce it to the safest possible intake.
In some pat of Asia (including Malaysia), rice form up to 85%of the plate. Even if we take rice, always keep it to minimum. Remember, it’s only for our tongue not the body.Where actually, rice and other grains like wheat and corn are actually worse than sugar. Which there are many reasons:
Rice Becomes sugar – vast amount of it!!
This a fact where no nutritionist can deny; rice chemically no different from sugar itself. One bowl of cooked rice give the same calories equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar.This does not matter whether its white, brown or herbal. It is digested into sugar as quickly as half and hour which by then circulating into our vain. Further more, its nature of low in the rainbow of anti-oxidants give nothing to help our digesting system.
Things without the anti-oxidant rainbow which can be found in food which react as nutrient supply with a whole host of other proper assimilation and digestion such as fruit, are useless.
Rice has no fibre.
The fibre of kangkong fills up you long before your blood sugar spikes. This is because the fibre bulks and fills up our stomach. Since white rice has no fibre, we end eating lots of dense calorie food before we get filled up. Brown rice has more fibre but with the same amount of sugar – it just seem the same!!
Rice is tasteless-sugar sweet.
There is only so much that you can consumes rice at one sitting, which sometimes people can eat 2-3 bowl of it. How many sugar you can eat in exchange for 1bowl = 10 teaspoon sugar. Can you just imagine it – eating up till 20 – 30 teaspoon of sugar in one sitting, yikes.
Rice effect on our water consume level.
The more rice we eat, the less water we consume which there is no mechanism to prevent the overeating of rice. Rice, wheat and corn come hidden in our daily food menu. As rice is tasteless, it tend to end up in other foods mixing that substitute rice such flour, noodle and bread. We tend to eat the hidden form which still get digested into sugar.
It is still difficult to digest even after cook.
Can’t eat raw rice? Try eating half cooked rice. Contrary to popular belief, rice is very difficult to digest. Label under ‘Heavy Stuff’ sure giving problem to whom having problems with digestion. They who had problem might want to try skipping rice for several day, and will be amazed at how the problem fades like passed by wind.
Rice prevents the absorption of several vitamins and minerals.
Rice which taken in bulk will reduce the absorption system of vital nutrient like zinc, iron and vitamins B. If you are rice addict, going rice-less is not something easy as talking, but by reducing it using below techniques might help a bit
- Eat less rice – reduce consume rate by half.
- Have rice-less meal once awhile. (fishes are much more preferable)
- Avoid salt shaker or ketchup. (it tent to make you want to consumes more rice)
- Eat your dessert first. ( the fibre rich fruits will ‘bulk up’ thus makes you eat less rice instead of fruits)
To make our health much more better than current state, what being state above are things that should be known by ‘many’. This is not something as being sarcastic of trying to prove any industries. It is just for the mean of human health.
It’s your life. Decide what you wan t to eat! But eat less rice!
