Live like a Pencil

A Pencil Story
I believe I was born for a purpose!
I hesitated what I am for?
I seek and realized I am born to write!
To write meaningfully…
And I start writing…
Inherently, at times I make mistake…
But I know mistake is only a word…
And I can learn from the mistake…
Mistake is a clue to redo,
Redo in a different way,
I have the in built power
to get up and make correction!
One of the days I do worn up,
I was dull and blank….
However, I believe what is important is inside,
So, I go and sharpen myself,
To dig the inner side of me,
And I find I can write even better.
Although my life is getting shorter,
and will eventually die off..
But I know, what I will leave behind is a legacy for the world to read and learn!!

“Knock, and the door shall be opened for you.”

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong, Ir., M.Eng, ChFC, PhD. Posted in General, Life

Let’s get ready to knock on the 2015 door…

May the door be wide open,

the roads ahead be smooth,

… for us to walk through.

Let’s pray that God guide us through whenever the road of 2015 becomes rough, wavy, and undulating…

Let’s us keeps the high spirits to keep learning …

Learn in every moment of our lives …

Learn to be grateful for every breath we have …

With all the moments we have, sad or happy, let us say goodbye for 2014… and with head upright, hands wide open, we step into 2015…

Keeps the spirits high …

Nurture positive attitude …

Keep and promote green nature..

Not forgetting to keep on learning …

Learn in every moment of our lives …

Learn to be grateful for every breath we have …

Last but not least, thank for being my friends…

Without friends the world will be meaningless…

Happy 2015 for every one of us!!!
