Believing and Keep the Faith

Believing and Keep the Faith

A pleasant surprise. I remember the last time I saw a ladybird, I was around 9-10 years old. Yes, it has been that long. Those were the times when I got to see a lot of ladybirds on the plants along the fence of the school; my friend and I used to catch some of the ladybirds.

I saw this the other day while my associates and I were looking for some plants to add ‘colours’ to our plain looking office. I was elated to see the little ladybird and immediately took out my Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot camera phone to take a few shots; the few shots turned out pretty decent. It sure is good to have a camera with us always – we never know what surprises we will get in life.

Simple thing like this makes me happy. When we learn how to appreciate life, it is easy to be happy with everything and anything. Life’s goodness is in abundance all around us. I appreciate and am grateful for all these goodness; be it the blessings that came along the way or be it the challenges that came my way.

It has been challenging for the past few weeks with lots of brick walls to be cleared. Brick walls which seemed impossible to break down initially all came down eventually. Just as Randy Pausch said, “Brick walls are there for a reason…” They are there to test how much we wanted what we want. In his own words, “… The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.” The good news is, the greater the brick wall, the bigger the opportunity for growth.

It was an amazing experience to see how each challenge eventually cleared and the limiting belief which I had of myself broke down. It was as if the Universe conspired to make things happened; all issues were ironed out with the assistance of family, friends etc around us. A simple realisation, “When we truly believe and hold the faith strongly that all will work out great, the Universe will respond in the most magical way.” This is the law of attraction.

However, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that all we need to do are to believe and have the faith that all will go well. We need to take action to make things happen too!

Last but not least, to share with you sometimes Steve Job said in his Stanford Commencement Speech, “Sometimes life hits you on the head with bricks, don’t lose faith!

Stalk me
Share the joy

    Ladybugs have always been a favorite of mine too! And I am very happy to read your challenges have seemingly cleared for you! I’m about ready to take some majors actions to help me get back on the right path too!

    Hi BK .. you’re so right as kids … the little ladybirds were so pretty ..and still embody a wonder & I still love looking at them .. protecting them and sending them outside .. I guess they’d prefer to be there.

    Brick walls are rather unpleasant and I’m pleased to hear that you’re out of the woodwork so to speak .. it is taking each day at a time and dealing with one thing at a time .. life will get us through ..

    Look after yourself and better times are ahead .. keep smiling, keep happy and as you say truly believe and keep faith in ourselves .. Hilary

      @ Jenny, indeed … wise words, “We’re not likely to fight to save what we don’t appreciate.” Thank you for sharing that with me.

      @ Meleah, I certainly wish that all will go well for you too my dear friend.

      @ Hilary, yes, I definitely need to take each day at a time and dealing with one thing at a time. Thank you for coming by and for your kind comment.

      @ Jannie, it is good to see you here again. Thank you for your kind comment too. We do need to stop and photograph the ladybirds often.

      @ Dora, thank you. It is indeed quite difficult to see ladybird in Singapore or perhaps we weren’t looking out for them and had always been busy moving and walking around.

    Hello BK,
    I like your ladybirds. With your blog I also recall the last time I saw some ladybird, it was around 5-6 months before. I got to see a lot of ladybirds on the plants along the fence of the tree. my friend and I used to catch some of the ladybirds.
    Good blog..

    Howdy. That’s funny that you don’t see ladybirds very often, because where I just came from is overrun with them. They’ve literally taken over and are even inside the house, crawling all over everything. Thanks for the post. Great to finally be reading again. Time to overcome some brick walls.
