You Changed My World

 At times the days seemed so long, I thought I'd never make it through, Then suddenly, out of a dream, I have met someone like you.  I had locked up all my feelings and I'd thrown away the key, Until your heart spoke a thousand words I knew were meant to be. When times turned rough and lonely, and despair fell upon my face, You comforted me and kept me…

Stuff No One Told Me

Alex Noriega used to have some problems at work. Being an illustrator, he started a blog to spot the problem. "I wanted to put on paper all that I had learned in life as simple as possible and try to see if what was happening around me made any sense," he says. The blog is called Stuff No One Told Me. Although he might have learned life's lessons the hard way, he's making it easier for us to deal with our own pesky little(?) problems. Read Alex's life lessons…

My Silence Is Just Another Word For My Pain



I always hear this sentence out from some girls mouth, looks like it is the only way for them to face their problem , mostly about 'love' matter. I wonder how can they just being silent all the time , how this can solve their problem? It sounds very selfish to me. Because every problem must have to be solved as soon as possible.

Mod
It doesn't mean there aren't any mistakes in your blog if nobody corrects you

While most of us think it's helpful to be corrected, some people might not think so. 

You may think it's embarrassing to be corrected in public - you may feel frustrated or disappointed or even offended. 

Making mistakes is part of learning, though. It's hard to imagine you'll be fluent in English without making any mistakes. So, chances are you'll make some mistakes in your writing unless you don't write at all. That is to say, the mistakes are always there whether somebody…

THE PURPOSE OF OUR LIVES

It All Starts with God 

For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible,. . . everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. Colossians 1:16 (Msg) Unless you assume a God, the question of life's purpose is meaningless. Bertrand Russell, atheist



It's not about you. The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It's far greater than your family, your career, or…

Writing challenge: Broken Window

Who likes broken windows? I can say, almost nobody. But, Sometimes having a broken window is not that much bad! Okay, let me say. First of all, gentle breeze can enter into your room without opening the window. If you are a very busy person it goes with you. Secondly, you can feel the touch of late evening rain drops just standing by the broken window! You may put a bin beneath it (window) and throw something through it, time consuming, right? And, if your AC would not work in any late…
