To take chances even when the circumstances are against you, When you feel that everything may just fall apart. You put yourself on the line for something that might not be true, And you don't know the right distance to go far.
Fear, of getting hurt, lost, rejected and having a mind that makes you think too much For better or for worse, should you use your head Successful in other areas, but scared of this such
You have nothing to lose but yourself and your heart Tears have no monetary value when it comes to it Everything may once again just fall apart In the end, it might all be worth it
Things don’t always go the way we plan. In fact, they rarely do. Maybe you’re not at the right point of your career; maybe your marriage just isn’t working out; maybe you can’t seem to find your place in the world. One thing’s for sure, though: you didn’t want it to be this way at all and there is nothing you can do about it.
Circumstances force us to be where we are at a certain point in time. Nothing we can do to change that. But that doesn’t mean that there is nothing we can do to change what’s gonna happen tomorrow. A fortune teller told of an ill future, but parted saying that there’s always something we can do to change that future; and I don’t see the ill fortune realizing itself.
There are two kinds of factors. The X and the Y, the things we can’t control and the things we can.For the things we can’t control, too bad. We can’t change what we are today and we shouldn’t stress ourselves thinking of things that ‘could have been’ or ‘shouldn’t have been’, the only thing we can do is change things for the future. Not with the factors that forced us to be where we are; but the factors that we can control.
Focus on the things we can control, for those are our only hope. Do your best not for your past, but for your future.
I own(ed) an HTC Wizard, my first actual Windows Mobile 5 phone that lasted more than six months in my hands. Other times I'd just have phones last barely a month due to the fact that I prefer profit over usability. But the phone that got me into the usability, my HTC Wizard, my second love, died.
Ironically, I just received my new phone three days prior to this happening. My Asus P525 became my new toy. It got all the pampering, upgrading, software, and tweaks that any phone would long for. I guess my Wizard got jealous; it felt replaced; deserted; unloved.
It seems like the cycle of life applies to electronics too. In with the new, out with the old. You don't even have a choice, if there's the new, the out has to leave; whether you like it or not. I say this because I miss the old times. I chatted with one of my old friends earlier and while I missed her badly, she reminded me that I have a lot of things in my life now. She's leaving the Philippines soon. I hope I can see her again.
Well, right now I'm on my Asus EEE (Shamplafaboo) typing a blog entry, downloading pictures in a zip file, synchronizing my Asus P525 (Pautavus), realizing that it's very geeky to give names to your devices, waiting for my girlfriend to arrive so that I can have dinner, charging my broken HTC Wizard, downloading Season 4 of One Tree Hill and the US Top 40 Chart WE 022308, and signing on to my YM.
That's what best describes the lives that we are aware of. In fact, we are much smarter than we really seem to be. The average person actually uses just around 10% of his brain capacity, which means that we are all either highly intelligent beings beyond our instant imaginations or that we are a greatly underdeveloped species with years of evolution left in our times (depending on which side of the glass you're looking at). Nevertheless, we live our lives.
I have read somewhere that there are keys to unlocking our unconscious, but I'm half-awake right now, so you can go looking on the internet for such resources, since you are already on the internet anyway.
My brain can barely produce the words to express how I feel at the moment. Which either means my brain cells have been dying since I stopped smoking and drinking or my intellectual capacity has been stunted for the past few years. In short, I'm sleepy and bored. I would love to write a highly enlightening piece on life's mysteries, but maybe another time. Maybe I should write more about what happens in a day-to-day sort of style rather than my usual shots of amateur poetry and half-hearted writing. Hmm, at least my brain's working again. :O
[ A CANCER. ]
Cancer is the fourth Sign of the Zodiac. After the exploration of Self, the physical world, and the intellectual world by the first three Signs, Cancer people turn to nurturing the family group. They are emotional and traditional, interested in heredity and ancestors, and this is reflected in their desire to care for relatives and propagate the family line. Their lives are generally centered around the home, including hereditary property and "family roots." As the fourth Sign, Cancer also rules the fourth House: the House of Home.
The Sign In Depth
The Astrological Symbol of Cancer is the Crab. Like the Crab, Cancerians go through life with a strong shell around them that is not easily broken. If necessary, they can retreat into their shell until it's safe to come out, but sometimes they become moody and refuse to leave. They can, quite literally, be crabby. In general, Cancerians are the first people to express emotion in any given situation -- the first to laugh and the first to tears. In this way, Cancer exemplifies the Cardinal Quality assigned to it. They are strong willed and persistent, and the rare occasions when their sympathy and kindness doesn't get them what they want they aren't above using emotional manipulation -- tears or sulking -- to get it. Within the Zodiac, Cancer is opposite Capricorn, the Sign of Social Status. While Capricorn is about how the world perceives you, people born under Cancer are more interested in their family and home life. They tend to be very protective of loved ones. They usually aren't ambitious, preferring the gentle and passive side of life.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon. In ancient times, the Moon was perceived as the Great Mother, responsible for nurturing all life. It represents fertility and instinct. The Moon controls the tides and all water on Earth, and it has a strong effect on human emotions. People born under Cancer tend to be more sensitive to the movement of the Moon through the Zodiac than other Signs are, their moods changing with the Moon's passage. They may be brooding or touchy when the Moon is passing through incompatible Signs, but strongly intuitive when the Moon is in a favorable Sign. Because of the maternal aspect of the Moon, Cancerians tend to have a strong need to protect themselves and their families. Generally domestic and peaceful, they have strong emotional drives and won't sit still when loved ones are threatened. Despite their general timidity, they can be patronizing when people cross them.
The Element associated with Cancer is Water. Water Signs are emotional: they tend to respond to the world through emotion, rather than physical action, practicality, or intellect. Cancerians are very intuitive, and emotion is a key part of their lives. They may be sentimental, often becoming collectors of things that remind them of family or the past. They need to be careful not to hoard things, however, and they can be possessive of what is theirs. They are thrifty, and dislike wasting money on frivolous things. Because of their strong emotions, people born under Cancer may tend to live in the past. They are easily hurt, so they attempt to protect themselves from the emotional stress of the present by rehashing the past instead. Their warm and caring nature is very sensitive to other people's harshness. It is important for Cancerians to learn not to jump into self-protective mode at the first sign of trouble, because their need for security can prevent them from discovering new things.
Because they are the nurturers of the Zodiac, people born under Cancer have a strong association with food. Additionally, they are very imaginative and sensitive, making many Cancerians excellent amateur chefs. Some go on to make a career out of cooking! They also tend to be more patriotic then other Signs, largely due to their strong emotional attachment to the place of their birth.
In their leisure time, Cancerians tend to enjoy physical exercise, finding that sweat helps them counter the stress inherent in their emotional natures. They often enjoy team sports because of the feeling of family within a team. Water sports also appeal to them. Artistic endeavors, written or on canvas, allow them to channel their swirling emotions into productive output. In love relationships, Cancer is caring, devoted, and romantic.
Cancer rules the breasts and stomach. People born under Cancer may suffer from stomach and digestive problems more often than people born under other Signs. The Moon is silver and white, and these are Cancer's colors as well.
The great strength of the Cancer-born is in their devotion to family. Their emotional orientation to life help them understand the difficulties their loved ones must work through. Their affectionate natures make them among the most caring characters of the Zodiac.
