Friday Self-Reflection

Family has become a challenge for me lately. I realize that I am only one person. I can’t be everything for everybody even for my children. Being the only person that my kids can rely on has been really tough on me, mentally, physically and emotionally. I know that I am not giving them all that I wanted them to have. Having a mother who is not constantly there , who get distracted a lot and got pull into different direction a lot is not good.

Maybe I need to follow our PM action. Focus on a few key areas for short term and medium term without loosing focus on the big picture. I wish I have Personal Assistant to help me organize things. PM’s tag line {1 Malaysia, People First, Performance Now} really inspire me to have my own tagline. It may not be original but it make sense to me – “Family First, Love Now “. This layout is base on that tagline – I will print this out and hang in my office and home as  a reminder of what really matters.

Thursday Quotes

“And I was all alone with my hatred and the pain that was so bad it was like being tortured. Like being dragged slowly across a bed of razor blades. Pain so bad you’d take death with a smile just to get away from it.”
Jacob, Breaking Dawn

Friday: Just You and Me

I really like this song from Zee Avi. This is exactly what I am feeling right now.
“You were sitting at the coffee table
where you're reading Kierkegaard
Minutes later, you proceeded to say
something that almost broke my heart
You said, "Darling, I am tired of livin' my routined life.
There's so much in the world that i'd like
to soak up with my eyes."
Well, baby i never did stop you from going out to explore
We can do it all together from the colds of the poles
to the tropics of Borneo
Ba da da ba da...
Let's pack our bags
and lie on the easy stream
feel the water on our backs
where we can carry on dreamin'
where we can finally
be where we'd like to be
Darlin', just you and me
Just you and me...
So Darlin', what do you say?
Does that sound like a plan to you?
We can build our own little world
where no one can come through
We can live in huts made out of grass
we can greet father time as he walks pass
we can press feet into the dirt
a little mud, no, it wouldn't hurt
Ba da da ba da ba...
Let's pack our bags
and lie on the easy stream
feel the water on our backs
where we can carry on dreamin'
where we can finally
be where we'd like to be
Darlin', just you and me
Just you and me..”
Here is my layout using “Sweetest Heart” by Brandy Design and Penny Springmann.

Wednesday Crazy For Fonts: Jailbird Jenna

This week font is Jailbird Jenna from kevinandamanda free font site. I love the grunge feel of this font.
Here is a layout I made with this Font using “I wanna be a rock star” kit by Wimpychompers Creations.
kingofpop I made this layout as a tribute to Michael Jackson. I grew up listening to his songs. He is such an inspiration to me. His life may never be perfect but he left many beautiful songs and great dance moves. Who can really forget his Moonwalk dance? I feel like something is missing. I can’t believe that I may never hear any more new songs / musics from him, EVER!
