I envy not in any moods
The captive void of noble rage,
The linnet born within the cage,
That never knew the summer woods:

I envy not the beast that takes
His license in the field of time,
Unfetter’d by the sense of crime,
To whom a conscience never wakes;

Nor, what may count itself as blest,
The heart that never plighted troth
But stagnates in the weeds of sloth;
Nor any want-begotten rest.

I hold it true, whate’er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

In Memoriam (XXVII)

by Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809-1892)

Funny Prayers

Lord help me to be careful of the toes I step on today as they may be connected to the ass that I may have to kiss tomorrow.

Calvin: “Know what I pray for?”
Hobbes: “What?”
Calvin: “The strength to change what I can, the inability to accept what I can’t, and the incapacity to tell the difference.”

“Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.” ~ Oscar Wilde

I for one, am not a morning person. I have to reach work by 7.30-7.45 am in the morning, so as to check the machines before starting my day’s work. Anyway, when I arrive at the hospital, the last thing I feel like doing is smiling and saying hello to all those chirpy morning people. In fact, I think it’s by only about 10 am when I am able to consider myself fully awake.

I always look forward to sleeping in during the weekends, however that has not been the case for the past few months due to the numerous on-calls I’ve had during those weekends. Suddenly, sleeping in is such a rare luxury. After reading this Oscar Wilde quote, I can say that I  feel somewhat justified for waking up way past noon. Haha..

Some things…

“At the end of the day, there are some things you just can’t help but talk about. Some things we just don’t want to hear, and some things we say because we can’t be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say, they’re what you do. Some things you say cause there’s no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves.”

~ Dr. Meredith Grey

Saw this quote somewhere around FB…

You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, even months analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together. Justifying what could’ve, should’ve, would’ve happened. Or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the f*** on.

About success…

Just watched Fame today at the cinema with my sis. It was a good movie but there were only 5 of us watching the show. I suppose it was not the peak hour for watching movies. Haha. Anyway, I loved this quote that Kay Panabaker gave at the graduation ceremony…

“There are a few things that Success is not…
Success is not fame, money or power
Success is waking up in the morning so excited about what you have to do that you literally FLY out of the door
Success is getting to work with the people you love
Success is finding a way of connecting and binding them together
Success is connecting with the world
Success is falling asleep knowing you did the best you could
Success is joy, friendship and freedom
Success is LOVE”

Looks like I’m still many miles away from success as I am definitely not excited about my daily work and I definitely do not fly out of the door to get to work. In fact, half the time, the alarm clock rings til it’s dead and I still have not managed to drag myself out of bed.

We’re all susceptible to it, the dread and anxiety of not knowing what’s coming. It’s pointless in the end, because all the worrying and the making of plans for things that could or could not happen, it only makes things worse. So walk your dog or take a nap. Just whatever you do, stop worrying. Because the only cure for paranoia is to be here, just as you are.

~ Meredith in “I Always Feel Like Someone’s Watching Me (S06E03)
