Go For Gold

For those of you who know me and my choice of music,

most of the time I will listen to the lyrics and I adore songs that are meaningful.

And I found one, I do not usually watch the television so I did not know that it was actually one of the themed songs of the London Olympics.


“Go For Gold” By Kyle Patrick

Living In The Moment

I have love this song since…

Living In The Moment” by Jason Mraz…

Enjoy! I love the lyrics…

It Gets Better Words From Cesar Millan

I have no idea who was Cesat Millan…

until I got myself a puppy =)

And since then I have been a fan of his show the Dog Whisperer and today I chanced upon an important message that he has…

It gets better

I hope you enjoy his message as much as I did.

Know that wherever you are at now, it can and will get better, and just make a decision to start somewhere =)

Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

I have watched this video and read the book. I thought of this video after watching the

sharing by Dr. Richard Teo. You can watch Dr. Richard Teo’s video here…

Dr Richard Teo: Thoughts of Life, Wealth, Success & Happiness >>

Being part of the healthcare team, I could relate to the agony of heavy patient

load such that it becomes such a routine that sometimes we forgot they are

patients with feelings.

I believe that we can never truly know or feel how our patients feel until we too

become a patient ourselves, of course we do not wish upon that on ourselves, we

should still touch based with our moral compass.

I have a soft spot for relatives who grieves, especially those of coroner’s case because

my dad was a coroner’s case.

And I am ever grateful for the team of nurses back then in 2006, who allowed me to do

the last office with them, even though it is extremely painful emotionally, a procedure that

is routine on your own loved one.

Coming back, I am grateful for this video, even though I do not know Dr. Richard Teo personally,

I am grateful for his sharings and in his last days step up to share and touch as many lives as he could.

Cherish your buddies, your partner, your family I say…

My Buddy Says Otherwise…

You Only Know How To Live When….

Recently I had a conversation with a fellow ward buddy, and we were talking about the books we read.

And he shared something that he had read before that to me is superb-ly insightful for a one liner…

And that is:

you only know how to live when you think about dying…

I paused in thoughts for awhile…what an irony…a paradox…

And then it clicked…it makes perfect sense…

We live day to day like there is no tomorrow, or perhaps we do not see that with each day that past, we are one step closer to 6 foot under.

And questions started to pop out of my head…

“Are you living the life that you want?…”

“Are you subjecting yourself to what people are saying?…”

“Are you too afraid to step out of your comfort zone?…”

“Do you fear living an honest, authentic life?…”

“Are you happy?…”

And the list goes on and on….it set me thinking

How do you want your life movie to look like?

And I hope it got you thinking and reflecting too, because one day, sooner or later we will be on our death beds…

you only know how to live when you think about dying…
