"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them."

"Be a first rate version of yourself,

not a second rate version of someone else" -Judy Garland

I'm sure you'll appreciate it much.

The Key to Happiness: LOVE

If I can be this successful doing something I like, imagine if I did something that I LOVE. How would you like to say, I have never worked a day in my life? When you do what you love, it doesn't feel like work. it feels a lot more like living.
I'm starting to think that what you do in your spare time is highly indicative of what you will become in life.

Say Word?!

I am not at all impressed with your fancy words.
Basic understanding of general words is much more appealing.

Don't just talk, say something.

Verb, noun agreement... I can get with that.
Correct spelling... definitely a turn on.

The next time I go over there, I hope that they're on their best behavior.

If that makes sense to you, then we can talk.

I never wanted to be famous

I enjoy my privacy.
I don't mind that you know nothing about me.
Mystery intrigues.

Prominence isn't dependent on the number of people who recognize me.
I don't need the world's approval.
I don't want it's company.

To the world, I will be one person
But to one person, I will be the world.

I don't live by your standards.

because they're not the same as mine.

Maybe it's Make-Believe

Because underneath all of that make up is someone who is afraid of their own face. -American Mogul


Mirror, you have no idea who I am.
that light which you reflect back to me, is not me
maybe a recycled, distorted, illusion of me
but no, it's not me.
I have little faith in the image you present to me.

Picture, your thousand words will never be enough to tell my story.
Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and Kodak will be of no help to you.
Your megapixels mean nothing to me.

There is nothing, no object, no surface, no being, no thing
that can reflect all of my light perfectly.
You will always absorb some of it for you to keep.
In an attempt to show me a lesser version of me.

Never Underestimate

The Power of a Hug
The Impact of a smile
The Beauty of a Hello

Why would I ever keep my hope in a jar? What good would that do?

Hiding under the covers, eating a cup of ice... can somebody turn op the heat?
Who decided that thinly cut strips of potatoes cooked in oil was "French"? Also, who decided that bread, mixed with milk, eggs and cinamon was "French"? I bet French people don't even like that crap.

How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.

-Oscar Wilde

When is it ever okay for someone to treat you like a regular person when you are clearly extraordinary? Why would you ever act like a regular person when you are clearly extraordinary?
Aaaaarrrrgggg... well Mr. Customer service man, what I would really like is my time back. Would you be able to help me with that please? Thank you very much.
My mother consistently warned me, "Say NO to drugs." But she never told me what to do when they don't listen.

I am so much more than just a pretty woman.

Look beyond my outer covering,
that's the only way you'll see the real me.

I would much rather be blessed with a blind man's love.
he who embraces blindness
even when he can see.

You make me more of myself.

And in return, I give you more of us.
"You know it's love when all you want is that person to be happy, even if you're not part of their happiness."
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

My Thalassemia

Beili Liu, who told you?

Who told you about my thalassemia?

Who told you that it was okay

for you to take it away

and put it on display

for the whole world to see?

That beta thalassemia belonged to me.

It was a gift from my grandmother

and like it or not

I was supposed to give it to my own daughter
in my will and against my will

It was our family heirloom

It was my little secret

I'd die before I'd ever loose it

But I didnt want to keep it

Beili Liu, thank you.

Stay focused on what's in front of you. You're destined to crash looking at life through the rearview.
You: It seems like everytime I turn around something bad happens or something goes wrong

Me: Well then, stop turning around

You can not read a book with your face buried in the pages

Your head will hide the light that allows you to see the words

and the extreme closeness distorts your vision

in order to see something as it really is

take a step back and observe it from a distance

Life is a volume of books that captures your story one day at a time. The problem with the book of life is the fact that as a character in the story, it's hard to see all aspects of the story and impossible to predict the end of the story. You go with the flow of life with no chance to take a moment and look at the way things are playing out. In order to understand what is going on in your story and possibly guide the story's destination, it is necessary to pause at the end of every chapter and review what has been written. Although it is impossible to go back and edit the mistakes, knowing the mistakes makes it that much easier to recognize forthcoming mistakes before it is too late. if you complete your story without taking time to read the beginning, chances are, many of the mistakes you made in the beginning will be repeated again and then again in the end.

It's funny how you thought making money would trump making a diference.

How Foolish.
Your breathing interrupts the silence
Keeping me from a steady sleep
Searching for a comfortable position
You move a lot
The best rest I've ever had
Just breathing the same air as you.
Ultimately, it's God that you will have to answer to.
Maybe He will be more understanding.
You're there whenever they need you. A helping hand, a listening ear, you are so much to so many people. I wonder who does that for you? Could I?
I wonder what life is like

inside your arms

I wish you could wrap me in your petals

and take me away

hide me

I wish you deserved better

For the longest time I questioned your judgement. I wondered why you would make the choices you make and why you would put up with and take the things that you take. I kept thinking to myself, you can do better. You deserve better. But maybe I just wish you did.

I wish you had the right to say, "I refuse to deal with a 'man' who smokes and drinks. I refuse to deal with a 'man' who cheats. All the loud talking, cursing and rudeness, it's just not for me. Video games, not so much. And if it's not right in my spirit, then there is no us. "

For the longest time, I prayed for your spirit of discernment to be strong enough to guide you through. Now, I can only pray God's mercy for you. I wish you deserved better. But honestly, you don't. And as much as I hate to accept it, you reap what you sow.

My Sleeve Wasn't Big Enough

just because somebody can handle the worst of you, doesnt mean they deserve the best of you.

If you are a parent and you have a child in school (K-12), then maybe you should consider considering yourself a student also. Make time to do homework, study, review classwork, etc. These days, some teachers don't actually teach, so it's up to you to make sure your child learns something.

Love yourself enough

it shouldnt matter if anyone else does
Love is blind
love isn't always blind
but sometimes
it makes you blind
and other times
it makes you close your eyes
I don't know which is worse
Not being able to see
Not wanting to see
People say, "In spirit and in truth" as if there is a difference.
When is your spirit ever not true?
If you cant trust your spirit, you can't trust you.

sleepless nights... thats how you know, something isnt right.

“Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it.”

It is obvious that your brain is too small for my big dreams.
I'll send you a postcard.


God will give you exactly what you ask for
“Contemplation often makes life miserable. We should act more, think less, and stop watching ourselves live.” -Chamfort

Now what?

Never too comfortable with life
always looking to change, rearrange or enhance what is
there has to be more than this

contemplating going back to school
I'd rather say it too soon
than say it too late
I love you
“Never let a problem to be solved become more important than the person to be loved.” -Barbara Johnson
While contemplating what to order her daughter for dinner, mother asked, "how much is it?"

And it broke my heart a little bit.

Daughter got exactly what she wanted. Mother decided she wasn't hungry anymore.

I live for the day when money isn't a factor... For anyone.
Jack of all trades, master of none... You say it like its a bad thing.

Actually, it gives me options.

The bad part is when I can't choose... And in turn I do nothing.
without thought
the sun rises
Even when you can't see her through the clouds
she shines
God isn't going to change the world
God changes His People
His People change the world.
It's always good in the beginning.
Let's see how much you love me 10 years from now.
Even after all this time,
the sun never says to the earth,
"You owe me."-Hafez
Now that's infinite and unconditional love
the rhythm of your heartbeat
instantly intrigued me.
the melody of your breathing
blends with mine
to create a perfect harmony.
imagine the songs that our children will sing.
I wonder how much pain it takes to rip a picture in half
seriously contemplating it
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." Dr. Seuss
I would much rather you hate me in my truth than love me in my lies.

Say Something

"Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something." -Plato

I'm Rich

"Who, being loved, is poor?" -Oscar Wilde

No Matter What

Keep going...

It would be so much better if I didn't care.

Self Centered?

I would consider you perfect... Because you're pretty much a reflection of me. Would you consider that conceit?

Lost & Found

I got lost in a place of invisible existence...

then I found myself in you.



Perhaps the most important thing a heart needs... is a reason to keep beating.

Three nights ago, I woke up to heartache. Literally, heart ache. I'm not sure what a heart attack feels like, but I'm pretty sure I had one that day. Even now, I still feel the after shocks.

Falling... No need to break my fall.

Does the break come at the end of the fall?

I wonder which has the greater effect, the break or the fall.

Reason: Identified


Live life with no regrets... This means, do what you want to do... And be proud of it, be honest about it,be true about it, be you about it.


There should definitely be a limit to the number of butterflies you can give me.

live your life

How redicilous is it to wait in line just to meet death?

A Dream

Why would I waste time dreaming, when this is my reality?


Hey dad, Its me. I'm not sure if you're aware or if you even care, but I'm coming over, to where you live, to see my friend. I think you know him, he's your girlfriend's kid. My mom will drop me off. He will open the door. You can step out of your room to see who it is, but then just go back in, shut the door, because I expect nothing more. But I will come up and knock, at least to say hi. Then I will go in the basement to play with my friends and the other neighbourhood guys. You don't have to pretend that you miss me or that you love me even. I don't even know for sure that you're mine. Better yet, you should just leave. That's perfectly fine. Really, I don't mind.

Yours Truly,
It is not our job to determine what we deserve.

Let God handle that part.

Receive the blessing,

accept the gift


make the most of it.

Yours Truly,


Life is ours to be spent, not saved... Cherish the moment... Enjoy the day.

Yours Truly,
Wishen Euell
