1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
2. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
3. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
4. When you say, "I love you," mean it.
5. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.
6. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
7. Believe in love at first sight.
8. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
9. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
10. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
11. Don't judge people by their relatives.
12. Talk slowly but think quickly.
13. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?

15. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
16. When you lose, don't lose the lesson .
17. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.

20. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
21. Spend some time alone.

紅色高跟鞋- 蔡健雅

Went shopping with a friend on Friday. In her mind, she has decided what to buy: Either a red dress or white pair of shoes. And as we walk around for the next 2 hours, we end up with nothing. Just as she gave up, went around for a last try, with no hope or expectation of getting anything. It was then she found a dress and end up buying something nice for an occasion. It is as I said, when coming out to shop, don't have any fixed intention of buying specified. As we have don't have the specific target, we will be able to enjoy everything else. It's the same with life and everything else; never have a specific target, enjoy the journey with an open heart, and we will learn to enjoy the process. The end of the road will still be there, but we what we learn and experience in the process is worth so much more than the goal itself. It's as the same as what me and another friend was talking last week. Have you set any goals in life? Have you set any specific things that you want to achieve? Have you set any specific ways to achieve them? As we set those, we will lose out on the journey of the path we've taken. We forget to enjoy along the way, that when we reach, we felt no sense of satisfaction, and set off to find another goal. So, have you learn to let go and let live?

若你碰到他- 蔡健雅

Where the rich prosper,
We falter;
Where the poor souls are contented,
The rich are in greed;
Where the successful are searching,
The simple ones have found;
We are in the end humans after all,
Each searching for the greater truth;
Cuz when we are in despair,
We hold on to the single hope;
When we are in solitude,
We find in ourselves a companion,
When we lost faith,
We search for a miracle.

誰 - 蔡健雅

A friend today said when it comes to relationship, he's a person that would be looking for someone that would fulfill some of his qualities. What is the other person doesn't fulfill the criteria that you have set, but treats you the way you deserve to be and love you all the same? I suppose that when it comes to loving someone or when being in a relationship, we shouldn't have any judgment or setting the criteria to a certain level that the other party must fulfill most of it. Paulo Coelho said it nicely in his book 'Brida' that emotions are like wild horses, the more we try to subdue it or control it, the wilder it will become. When feelings is there, no matter what criteria or physical attraction the other person has, it doesn't matter anymore. Cuz all of those are just materials, and the feeling are not attached to the materials. What if we like someone due to the criteria that they've fulfilled and yet 10 years down the road, the things are not there anymore? What is left in the relationship then? Like someone for who they are, not what they are.

I Look To You - Whitney Houston

When the dream is too beautiful, we refuse to wake up.
When things are too good to be true, we refuse to believe in reality.
Aren't we all living in our own world, contradicting who we are?
We want everything to be good, but have we ever tried hard for it to be good?
We need to be hurt in order to learn to love truly, but have we wondered about the feelings of the people we hurt?
We as humans are selfish, but the greatest things in life are generous,
So why are we acting the way we are?

Vertigo - Jordin Sparks

Someone said
' If someone you love hurts you, humiliates you and belittles you, you are the luckiest person. You receive firsthand knowledge of the humiliation and pain and because you know how it feels, you'll know how much you can hurt a person and you'll vow to never inflict the same pain on others. I think a person who goes through life being careful in not hurting anyone is a truly wonderful person'.

How true is that...
