Don't be a Silent Reader


I often wonder about silent readers. I wonder who you are, what you do, why you read my blog.

I wonder because I am what you would call an 

“I’m reading your blog and you will know it” reader. 
Why? I'm not entirely sure. I do know that I love to engage with a blogger that I feel has something in common with me. But then again, there are also bloggers that I follow that I have nothing in common with, but I enjoy the way they write, take pictures, dress, etc.

I’m serious, every blog that I have ever followed has at least one comment from me. It is my way of letting that blogger know that I follow them because I enjoy their blog. But I also notice that when I leave several comments and get no interaction back, I become a silent reader. 

So I wonder if some of my silent readers feel/felt that I have not made an effort in interacting with them when they made an attempt to interact with me. Or maybe some people do not like to join the conversation because they do not feel they have anything extra to add. 

Or maybe the whole 
"if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all" 
is working in my favour  
Let’s hope that is not the case ;).

Getting off track here.

Any who, all of this to say that I really would like to know who’s reading. So if you are a silent reader and have never left a comment, jump out the bushes and scare me with a hello. I just might hop on over to your space and violate you with comments/emails.

little happiness

When an opportunity comes to bring us a little happiness we should not turn it away quickly just because it falls short of a perfect solution. 
Because, when we grow old we don't want to carry disappointments and bitterness is our hearts. 

So take what life offers; 

A gift can come in many different coloured ribbons. 
Even if it's not wrapped in your favourite shade it doesn't mean that you won't like what's inside the box.

It's sad when people you know become people you knew, 
When you can walk right 
past someone like they were never a big part of your life, 

How you used to be able to talk for hours 
And how now, 
You can barely even look at them

Love hurt?

Everyone says love hurts, 
but that is not true. 

Loneliness hurts. 
Rejection hurts. 
Losing someone hurts. 
Envy hurts. 

Everyone gets these things confused with love, 
but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. 

Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt

Because of you

Ever have that one person in your life that you just can't give up on, 
the one person who can screw you over time 
after time yet you always seem to give 
them another chance, 
and no matter how many times you say 
this is their last one, 
you know it's a lie because there's always 
just one more waiting for them. 

The one person you know you're better off 
without but yet you can't find a way to let them go 
because deep down inside you wouldn't know 
what to do without them. 

The one person that you know doesn't deserve you but yet you choose to overlook it. 
Because of your love.

Conversation between me and you

Her: Will you pick me up if I ever fell down? 
Him: No. 

Her: Would you wipe away the tears when I'm sad? 
Him: Never. 

Her: Will you still love me when I look my worst? 
Him: Nope. 

Her: [feeling hurt after hearing this] At least you're honest. [starts to walk away...] 
Him: [grabs her back to face him] I wouldn't pick you up if you fell because I would catch you before you even hit the ground. 
I wouldn't wipe away your tears because I'll make sure there's nothing for you to ever be sad about. 
I wouldn't love you when you look your worst because that's impossible. 
You always look you're best, even when you think you don't. 
I love you more than anything, remember that.

It's not because..

If you see me walking with someone else, It's not because I want to.. 
It's because you weren't brave enough to walk by me. 

If you see me smile, It's not because i forgot you... 
It's because i got tired of crying for you. 

If you see me living again, It's not because i've moved on... 
It's because i hate the fact you can live without me 

So if I fall in love with someone else, It's not because i want to... 
It's because you weren't there to catch me

Love hurts and the price you pay is high

Did you ever love someone and know they didn't care? 
Did you ever feel like crying knowing it would get you no where? 
Did you ever look into someone's eyes and say a lil prayer? 
Did you ever look into someone heart wishing you were there? 
Did you ever watch someone walk away, not wanting them to go? 
Did you whisper, 
"God I love you"  but never letting them know? 

You cry at night in misery and almost go insane. 

Nothing in this world causes so much pain. 
If I could choose between love and death, 
I think I'd rather die. 
Love hurts and the price 
U pay is high. So I say, 

"don't fall in love" 

it'll hurt before its through, 
you see my friend, 

I ought to know......

because I fell in love with you.

Share your sad love story with us.

I love U and Me

I love the way you look at me even when you don't think I'm watching. 
I love the way you smile at me even when I've said the most stupidest thing.  I love the way we can fight and hang up the phone knowing the other person wants to call back but both are too stubborn. 
I love the way you can light up my face by just walking in a room. 
I love the way you look at me as you gently kiss my forehead 

I love all of this, but what I love most is...
You and I can't imagine living any other way; 
even if I can't see you every day, your voice echoes in my head, your love remains in my heart. 

And if you walk away, I know that it will be the best thing to ever walk out of my life.

Always love you

There was once a guy who was very much in love with a girl. He folded 1,000 pieces of paper cranes as a gift to her. Although at that time he was just a small fry in his company and his
future didn't seem too bright he was contented with what he had.. for he was in love.. and they were both happy together..

Until one day, this girl told him she was going to leave the country for Paris and try to live a new life there with no intention of returning back. She also told him that she cannot visualize any future for both of them because he was poor and he had no dreams. He couldn't believe what he just heard and couldn't help but cry. She was his dream, his love, his friend.. she was his everything..

Just when he thought he had it all he gets to experience the true side of the world.. with all it's misery in it..

But love is being able to accept the truth no matter how it hurts.. She broke his heart and yet he still loves her..

Days have passed, months have gone by and yet his feelings for her has always stayed the same..

He worked hard night and day to put his mind off the past..
He wanted to prove her wrong about the fact that he has no dreams.. he can be somebody someday..

Finally with all the hard work and help from his friends, he was able to build his own company..

One rainy day, while he was driving along the highway, he saw an old couple sharing an umbrella in the rain while heading to some destination. It didn't take him a while to recognise them for they seemed familiar to him.. they were his girl's parents..

He drove back to them.. slowly.. to show them how his life has changed. how successful he has become.. he's got his own car, house, company.. he's got it all..

But what he saw next confused him. The couple were heading to a cemetery  Out of impulse he went out of the car and followed them.

She was there.. his heart pounded so fast for he couldn't believe what he was seeing.. He felt the warmth of his tears trickling down his cheeks.. He was crying in the rain..

He saw his girl's photograph smiling sweetly at him.. from her tombstone.. next to the paper cranes he once gave her.

Her parents felt his presence and looked back at him. Out of confusion he asked them why.. and how did all this happened.

She did not leave for Paris for she was ill with cancer, it was her cliché. She believed that he will make it someday and she didn't want to be his obstacle. All she ever wanted was to be with him.. but she chose to leave him to spare him from her suffering and frustrations..

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you at all.

She wanted her parents to put his paper
cranes beside her, because, if the day comes when fate brings him near to her again... 
he will remember how much she loved him and how much he meant to her...

Once you have loved someone, you will always love her.. forever. For what's in your mind and heart will remain forever.

He cried in silence and whispered... 
"I thought I almost had it all.. now I know what was missing.. you.."

Never give up

Never give up if you still wanna try 
Never wipe your tears if you still wanna cry 
Never settle for the answer if you still wanna know 
Never say you don't love him if you can't let him go.

I miss you

I miss you when something really good happens, because you're the one I want to share it with. 

I miss you when something is troubling me, because you're the one who understands me so well. 

I miss you when I laugh and cry, because I know that you are the one that makes my laughter grow, and my tears disappear. 

I miss you all the time
but I miss you the most when I lay awake at night, and think of all the wonderful times that we spent with each other for those were some of the best and most memorable times of my life.

Dear: Who ever 

I did not come into this world with the intention to be perfect, 
I was never trained to please or to satisfy anyone, 
I never really knew what to expect when I came to this world at first all people had for me is love now I get hurt than never before, 
it took me sometime to realize how things work. 

To be perfect is not my dream 
but its what I work to become everyday just take me as I am 
and with you knowing my faults and me 
knowing your faults perfection is not that far.

that is love nothing less.

Love is when you can't be apart from someone for too long.
You're always thinking of them and when you're with them 
you never want to say goodbye. 

Love is far from simple. 
It's quite complex. 
It's a mix of about everything. 

It's sadness, joy, passion, hatred, excitement, 
it's almost every feeling you can imagine and more.

 You know love when you find it, 
it's that person that when they smile it brightens 
up your day, 

you can't stop staring at them for fear of losing them, 
they're always on your mind, 
you daydream of being with them, 
even if they're less than 20 feet away
...and you 
can't stand it when they're not with you, 
the worst feeling you could ever feel is 
when you know that person you love is not with you...
you can't tell when love will happen,
 you just know when it does, 
that moment when you first lay eyes on that person, 
and you never want to look away

...that is love. Nothing less.

Unusual Funeral

A woman was leaving a convenience store with her
morning coffee when she noticed a most unusual funeral procession
approaching the nearby cemetery.

A long black hearse was followed by a second long
black hearse about 50 feet behind the
first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary
woman walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind her, a short distance
back, were about 200 women walking single file.

The woman was so curious that she respectfully
approached the woman walking the dog and said,
"I am so sorry for your loss, and I know now is a
bad time to disturb you, but I have never seen a funeral like this.
funeral is it?"

"My husband's."

"What happened to him?"

The woman replied, "My dog attacked and killed him."

She inquired further, "Well, who is in the second hearse?"

The woman answered, "My mother-in-law. She was
trying to help my husband when the dog turned on her."

A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two women.

"Can I borrow the dog?"

"Get in line."

Anxious pregnant woman

A woman goes to her doctor who verifies that she is pregnant. This is her first pregnancy. The doctor asks her if she has any questions. 

She replies, "Well, I'm a little worried about the pain. How much will childbirth hurt?"

The doctor answered, "Well, that varies from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy and besides, it's difficult to describe pain."

"I know, but can't you give me some idea?" she asks.

"Grab your upper lip and pull it out a little..."

"Like this?"

"A little more..."

"Like this?"

"No. A little more..."

"Like this?"

"Yes. Does that hurt?"

"A little bit."

"Now stretch it over your head!"

McDonald’s application form

This is an actual job application that a 17 year old boy submitted to McDonald’s in Florida… and they hired him because he was so honest and funny!

NAME: Greg Bulmash.

SEX: Not yet. Still waiting for the right person.

DESIRED POSITION: Company’s President or Vice President. But seriously, whatever’s available. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn’t be applying here in the first place.

DESIRED SALARY: $185,000 a year plus stock options and a Michael Ovitz style severance package. If that’s not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.


LAST POSITION HELD: Target for middle management hostility.

SALARY: Less than I’m worth.

MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT: My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.



PREFERRED HOURS: 1:30-3:30 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS?: Yes, but they’re better suited to a more intimate environment.

MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER?: If I had one, would I be here?


DO YOU HAVE A CAR?: I think the more appropriate question here would be “Do you have a car that runs?”

HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARDS OR RECOGNITION?: I may already be a winner of the Publishers Clearing house Sweepstakes.

DO YOU SMOKE?: On the job no, on my breaks yes.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?: Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb sexy blonde super model who thinks I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I’d like to be doing that now.

Essence of trust is not in its bind

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.

The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter:
"Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river." 
The little girl said:
"No, Dad. You hold my hand."
"What's the difference?" Asked the puzzled father.

"There's a big difference," replied the little girl.
"If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go."

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. 
So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold yours.

I am Thankful

For the wife
who says it's hot dogs tonight,
because she is home with me,
and not out with someone else.

For the husband
who is on the sofa
being a couch potato,
because he is home with me
and not out at the bars.

For the teenager
who is complaining about doing dishes
because it means she is at home,
not on the streets.

For the taxes i pay
because it means
i am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party
because it means i have
been surrounded by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug
because it means
i have enough to eat.

For my shadow that watches me work
because it means
i am out in the sunshine

For a lawn that needs mowing,
windows that need cleaning,
and gutters that need fixing
because it means i have a home.

For all the complaining
i hear about the government
because it means
we have freedom of speech..

For the parking spot
i find at the far end of the parking lot
because it means i am capable of walking
and i have been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating bill
because it means
i am warm.

For the pile of laundry and ironing
because it means
i have clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muscles
at the end of the day
because it means i have been
capable of working hard.

For the alarm that goes off
in the early morning hours
because it means i am alive.
