I am most proud of my parents. Because of them, I have been able to live the life I want to. មាតាបិតាជាព្រះអាទិទេព(God)របស់កូនប្រុសស្រី កូនគប្បីធ្វើសេចក្តីគោរពកោតក្រែងចំពោះលោកទាំងពីរ និងចិញ្ចឹមបីបាច់ថែរក្សាលោកឲ្យបានសេចក្តីសុខ ទាន់ពេលលោកមានជីវិតរស់នៅ ដើម្បីកុំឲ្យមានវិប្បដិសារីទៅថ្ងៃក្រោយ។ កូនដែលប្រកបដោយកតញ្ញុតាធម៌ រមែងបាននូវសិរីមង្គលគ្រប់ប្រការ និងគ្រប់ទីកន្លែង.(If you cannot read it, because it is Khmer font )

This topic is dedicated to my lovely parents. Thank you so much for everything that my parents have done for me. Thanks for being such a wonderful parents for me. I have been taught and energized, and they have touched my heart. I’m proud of that. Thanks to my parents who have done many good things to me and have added value to me. I would like to show my gratitude and appreciate towards my parents, who forebear pain and discomfort in bringing me up to adulthood. I will always be indebted to them. My Mother, My Hero: The most special person in my life! My Parents are the best gifts that ever happened to my life. I’m proud of that. I am most proud of my parents. Because of them, I have been able to live the life I want to. I love spending time with family!  I love my parents with all my♥heart♥ I would climb the highest mountain, swim the deepest sea, and walk across the hottest desert just to tell my parents how incredibly special you two mean to me.

This topic is also dedicated to my friends. Thank you for your wonderful friendship.

There are so many good things have happened to my life, I think because I have gratitude in my attitude! 😀

“There is one thing and just one that stands out above all other things in my life: That word is gratitude.” Dy Dara 

Gratitude is my favorite word. Why? Because it’s incredibly, awesomely, stunningly (insert over the top adjective of your choice here) powerful.

 “If you want to find happiness, find gratitude.” I have a very strong sense of gratitude and I live a very happy life. Gratitude is an essential part of a good life. If you don’t appreciate the people, places, and things that make up your life, you don’t have much motivation do anything.
 I’d choose Gratitude over Love.

Gratitude, thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation is a feeling, emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive. 

For the last few years I have developed my sense of gratitude, understanding, patience, forgiveness and self improvement.

In my life, many people have treated me very well and have touched my heart. Thanks for being such a wonderful inspiration to me. Thank you so much for everything that you have done for me. It is my honor to know you guys. With lots of ♥love and hopes to a long lasting friendship. You are in my mind and in my heart. I’m Glad to have you! Just wanted to remind you how special you are!  Remember, those whose lives you have touched and whose have touched yours are always a part of you.  You are one of the best gifts that ever happened to my life. I’m proud of that. I would like to show my gratitude and appreciate toward everyone who has touched my heart. 

Gratitude keeps me safe! Sometimes I have a bad temper, do you want to know “How can I hold it?” Thanks to the power of gratitude and quotes.  I always think of my parents I can bear all pains for my parents’ sake and I don’t want to cause them any grief, so it makes me have the courage to walk away from unnecessary conflict. I would not do anything potentially dangerous. “If you can control one moment of anger, you can escape hundred days of sorrow” “Be patient. Because one moment of impatience can ruin a whole life.”

In Robert Emmons book, Thanks!: How Practicing Gratitude Can Make You Happier, his research showed that people who regularly practice gratitude have better relationships with others, report better mood, higher self-esteem, sleep better and have more energy. Feeling fortunate for what we have can be more rewarding than any material gift in the long run!  But research on appreciation and gratitude also shows that it’s not a natural part of development in children—it’s learned behavior.


 For things, I have a strong sense of appreciation or taste = Ability to appreciate what is beautiful! ! I have seen many good places but I still feel like I am from countryside, still say wow, that’s awesome when I see this room.

For people, I am grateful to those who have done something for me and I always remember that! 😀  Thank you so much! 🙂 Remember, those whose lives you have touched and whose have touched yours are always a part of you.

What Am I Grateful For?

If you can’t think of 10 new things each day to be grateful for you’re not looking hard enough because they’re out there.

The act of searching our minds for things that we’re grateful for is a brilliant state changer. It will improve your mood, make you feel more resourceful and stop any thoughts of self-pity that can lead toward developing a victim mindset creeping in.

My gratitude quotes

“He who does not thank for little will not thank for much.”  ~ Estonian Proverb

When I can read and better understand English, I feel gratitude for my parents’ support. And even I work for them, they don’t pressure me and I have more time to read on the Internet and to write for my blog. 

It’s the power of gratitude. I have lived in Battambang for 4 years and I don’t enjoy my life here but I do this for my parents. I know this is nothing compare to what my parents have done for me. I don’t get mad at some people because of that as well!  

I feel honor and gratitude to my friends and relatives who always ask me to join their trip, even though I have a little money. 

I am very grateful that I have been a part of SSEAYP; it gives me a great sense of pride.  It’s an honor and I will never forget it.

I have a short attention span but when I have decided to do something, I put my all into it. I think it is good I can find a new thing. “Out with the Old, in with the new” I find myself getting bored easily with people but gratitude, love, obsession, fun, and friendship stand out above that thing and make me not get bored with them. Just because I have a short attention span doesn’t mean I can’t have a long one. I actually can pay attention for a long time unless things get really boring.

Attitude of Gratitude.

When you’re grateful for who you are and accept how other people are, you raise your tolerance and respect for others to another level. Your perceptions of yourself and others change and your relationships improve logically. Combining gratitude and forgiveness definitely skyrocket your relationships.

 The power of gratitude: When you develop the habit of gratitude in any circumstances you also surrender your obsessions with controlling everything in your life and let the door open for Divine interventions and creative solutions. How gratitude can help me realize my dreams?

When you’re grateful for the good things in your life, you attract even more of blessings into your life. The more you experience this principle in your life, the more energy you can invest in making your dreams come true. “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. “

How did your personal life change through the practice of gratitude?

I could have never imagined how two simple words as “Thank You” would transform my life. I have been blessed behind my craziest dreams. However, the most amazing blessing is the ability to live in the instant with peace and joy whatever the situation. When I say “thank you” for the present moment, I raise my awareness of the “now,” and I authorize myself to live fully in any moment. I’m not on autopilot anymore and believe me, this is a life transformation experience.

How gratitude can influence my relationships?

When you’re grateful for who you are and accept how other people are, you raise your tolerance and respect for others to another level. Your perceptions of yourself and others change and your relationships improve logically. Combining gratitude and forgiveness definitely skyrocket your relationships.

Say it loud, write it, chant gratitude but above all never forgets to do it. Because Gratefulness contains magic inside and has the power to transform your life.

 “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”

I like helping people, but one thing I wonder the people I’ve helped, they couldn’t return my favors. I didn’t expect that return. But there are always someone else does me a great favors, I didn’t do something for that someone to deserve that things.  I don’t like to owe someone’s favor, but I am still deeply indebted to many people. For that I gratitude and appreciate.  We cannot live alone in this world; we need each other’s help. Help what we can with others in need…the world is ONE big family! 

“Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can – there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.”

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

I have attitude of gratitude so I think my life is wonderful! 🙂 Why? There are so many reasons that I and you can think of that makes our life wonderful. For me I am so blessed to have my lovely parents and I’m so grateful for the family and so many friends that love me and care about. It’s about happy moments and good memories. If you remember, great life doesn’t change.

Cultivating Gratitude

“Wherever you go you can find something to complain about.”  If we travel, we can complain about lumpy beds and crowded airports.  But if we stay home, we can complain that we never go anywhere interesting and there’s never anything good on television.  In Japanese language there is a term — on.  The meaning of on often includes a sense of gratitude combined with a desire to repay others for what we have been given.  It’s not just that we feel grateful, or that we express our gratitude, but that we actually experience a sincere desire to give something back.  We might think of it as appreciation that stimulates a sense of obligation.  Not an externally imposed obligation.  But a sense of obligation that arises naturally within us as we recognize how we have been supported and cared for by others.

The Power Of Gratitude To Unleash
Unlimited Abundance And Happiness In Your Life

for your current blessings unleashes the power
for receiving many more. Every Day Give Thanks.

 The Power of Gratitude

By Kevin Eikenberry

If I could offer you a magic potion that would make you happier, healthier, more optimistic and more productive, and tell you that potion would cost nothing and will require very little effort to use, would you be interested?

Let me ask the question differently.

If this potion existed would you want some?

Of course you would! Unfortunately, I don’t have a potion that will do these things. But each of us has something even better than a potion that will do all of those things and more…

Gratitude.

Science tells us that an “attitude of gratitude” is a good health choice. Being more grateful more often makes us happier and more optimistic. But gratitude also adds to the bottom line – in very real ways. And the best news about gratitude is that it requires little time and no money.

Here are five reasons gratitude improves your productivity and results:

Gratitude attracts what we want. The universal law of attraction says that we will attract into our life the things we think about and focus on. Since this is true, wouldn’t you want more of what you are thankful for? (I think I know the answer to that!) Remember that when you are consciously aware of your blessings, and are grateful for them, you are focusing more clearly on what you do want in your life – and are attracting more of those things into your life.

Gratitude improves relationships. We learn the importance of saying “thank you” as little children. We are taught that habit because it is “good manners.” This childhood lesson is extremely powerful. Think about those people that you know who are most appreciative of you – and let you know it. How do you feel about them? Does their appreciation positively impact your relationship with them? Of course it does! Be grateful for people, their contributions, their talents and their actions – and make sure you let them know how you feel.

Gratitude reduces negativity. It is hard to be negative about your situation when you are thinking about things for which you are grateful. One of the fastest ways to improve your mood or outlook is to count your blessings.

Gratitude improves problem solving skills. Too often we look at problem solving with a very jaded view. “Something is wrong. We have barriers in our way. Then, we have to put in effort to fix it.” Conversely, when we think about what we are grateful for we open our minds up to new possibilities and connections. We also enter a problem solving situation with a perspective of improvement and opportunity rather than challenge or issue.

Gratitude helps us learn. Every dark cloud has a silver lining. Behind every problem lies an opportunity. Being grateful for our situation – even if we don’t like everything about it – allows us to be thankful for the opportunity to learn something new.

That’s Fine, But How?

At this point you may be thinking, OK, sounds great, but how can I really be more grateful, more often?

It’s really very easy.

Let’s practice right now.

1. Make a list of five things you are grateful for right now. These can be big things (like your family) or little things (like the fact that someone held the door open for you this morning). This can be a mental list or written down. Do it now.

2. Reflect on your list and allow yourself to feel good about these things.

3. If there is a person you can thank or show your appreciation to, do that now too (a quick call or email is a good start!).

You can do this exercise anytime, and you don’t have to stop at five things. In fact, it is a great idea to keep a running list in your Journal, planner or notebook – this way you can return to your list anytime you wish, reinforcing your gratitude.

But at any moment you can make a list, bask in those thoughts, and share that thankfulness with others.

You’ve probably thought of being thankful as a good thing to do or the right thing to do. But now hopefully you see it can be even more powerful than “right.”

Gratitude is an attitude. Gratitude is a choice. And gratitude is a habit. When we consciously practice being grateful for the people, situations and resources around us we begin to attract better relationships and results. The habit will be strengthened as you make the choice each day.

“There are four people you need to forgive if you are serious about changing your life and learning how to live in the now. The first are your parents, living or dead. You must absolutely forgive them for every mistake they ever made in bringing you up. At the very least, you should be grateful to them for giving you life. They got you here. If you are happy to be alive, you can forgive them for everything else. Never complain about them again.” Brian Tracy

Sometimes I want to be a caged bird because of the power of gratitude! 😀

Sometimes when you focus too much on where you are going, you forget to be grateful and enjoy where you are.

What’d you do to repay our gratitude?

I did my part, now you do yours.

how to understand quotes and apply them in your life?

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 3:06 am

dream

My dream is to inspire and energize you for life through good sayings.

Your dreams will inspire you and create the energy to pursue your goals with a passion and determination.

The inspiration to achieve your dreams will put the fuel into your tank and energize you into action. Burn the vision of your dreams into your thoughts until that vision becomes crystal clear of what you want to accomplish. From that vision create a plan of action that will keep you moving in the direction of your goals and objectives.

Your dreams will inspire and energize you . . . . to make your goals a reality. Believe it; work at it, stay the course and your dreams will be within your grasp.

dare to dream

passion

I must bear these in my mind all time because when people bring out the very worst in me, you have no idea what I am capable of. Everyone has a devil inside but you will never know until it comes out. When it does, you have lost to your own devil. I rarely hate people but when I do, you have no idea how much I hate that people. Why am I that extreme? The worst thing that could happen to my life is like at the end of some South Korean action movies line “Why we have to end up like this?”

I am a quotes man and quotes is one of my best friends, quotes talk to me when I feel down! 🙂 When I fail or disappointed in somethings these sayings come to my mind “Remember that failure and disappointment are a part of life.” ”When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.” I am a believer in life-long learning. Love of learning is the guide of life. People are born with blindness so we need good books and teachers to guide our way. Learning and considering can help human become true human. This topic will help you better understand quotes and how to apply them in your life.

When I read Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s quote about “Knowing is not enough. We must apply.” I am not bragging or anything, his quote is really match up with what I used to say “knowing 1000 good sayings is not the point, the point is keep that in mind and apply them in your life!”

I am a good many things, but a businessman I am not I mean I am not good at making money. It’s like a pain in the ass. The highest views of my blog is about 400 views per day and I want to make my money from my blog and I don’t know how! The people around me have everything, my brother and some of my friends make a lot money. How about me? I just save up my money every day to take my monthly trip. When I thought about it, this idea came to my mind “You can win life by all means..Yes..
If you simply avoid two things…
1. Comparing – with others
2. Expecting – from other! I felt much better after this quote talked to me! 🙂 

Words to live by: Be tough with the tough and gentle with the gentle.



That’s my motto.

I leaned this sentence in 2010 “Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! ” it is like wake me up from a nightmare, makes me enjoy my old life! 

I was a broken heart man who needs mending.  Recently I have felt pretty awesome after reading many articles, writing several topics and hanging out with my friends. These things made me started to enjoy my old life. I just realized that there are so many wonderful things for me to enjoy. Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! Time heals all pain.

let's inspire

Do you like to be inspired? How about sharing what has inspired you with others?

In this article, I am going to introduce to you some powerful ideas which help you understand quotes. In my topic here you will see many quotations. You can say I am crazy about them or you can say it is boring here to see too many quotes and sayings. But I’ll tell you what; I think I can have a happy life because of these words. Many people have a difficult time understanding some quotes. How can I learn and understand the meaning of quotes better? “Quotations help us remember the simple yet profound truths that give life perspective and meaning. When it comes to life’s most important lessons, we can all use gentle reminders.” This is a gentle and heartfelt guide to the fundamentals of living a life rich in joy and contribution. The question is how we can relate it on our daily life? I want you to just relax. Feel the quotes.

One of my greatest enthusiasms is quotations.

I wish to talk to you about this because it has been an important part of my life, and it helped make me the person today. Collecting stamp is a famous hobby as well as an easy activity. Some people are considering the habit of collecting stamps but for me, collecting quotations have been my hobby since I was in high school. I am always amazed and impress by the wit of the writers and speakers who are able to express with clarity in words the truth about the different aspects of life. This is probably the most important rule in the world: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”  So let’s obey the Golden Rule, and give unto others what we would have others give unto us, How? When? Where? The answer is: All the time, everywhere.

My favorite flower is lilac! In spring, the lilac reaches full bloom.  

Who can tell me what the lilac signifies?

 Memories of youth.  My favorite quote about youth: Youth is a once in a lifetime gift. Make it memorable and meaningful. I mean make memorable achievements and at the same time make a meaningful contributions to the world.  My favorite quote from my western friend “Living the inspired life involves appreciating the little things in life, like stopping what you were doing to smell a pretty flower or noticing the beautiful blue sky. It’s taking time to show the people in your life that you love them. It’s choosing to take risks and moving forward without fear. It’s the way to live – full of freedom and joy.”

Click here to see my collection of good sayings: Enjoy my collection of inspirational sayings. Be inspired and motivated by them.

My quote  “I don’t care about other people business as long as they keep to themselves and don’t spit on my life or step on my family’s shoe. If they do, it gonna be my business I have to take care of.” Dy Dara 25.08.2011 How to understand good sayings and apply them in your life?Do you have favorite quotes that you depend upon in a crisis, special quotes that motivate you to move forward, quotes that you are teaching your children? When I encounter difficulties in my life I always think of this special phrase “No matter how hard it is that time will pass.” In others words, it is not the end of the world. “Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” I need to be reminded daily to guard my heart because I’m so easily distracted by people, places and things so this message really speaks to me. Sometimes I have a bad temper, do you want to know “How can I hold it?” Thanks to quotes “If you can control one moment of anger, you can escape hundred days of sorrow” I always think of my parents and I don’t want to cause them any grief, so it makes me have the courage to walk away from unnecessary conflict. ”When anger rises think of the consequences.” We need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be.  Be patient and tough; some day this pain will be useful to you.Be patient. Because one moment of impatience can ruin a whole life.

I don’t like feeling angry, being envious or hold a grudge against anyone! When I have that, I’ll feel unhappy. I always make my feeling as clear as water. It’s not in my character to be jealous. But sometimes, I need to teach someone a lesson for those who spit on my life! Positive thinking and forgiveness are the most important ingredient in the formula of happiness.

I’m looking forward to the future with a smile. I want you to be as happy as I am.

Forgive, it’s important. Your ability to forgive is gonna determine the quality of the rest of your life more than anything else. The more mercy you have, the less hatred you have. When you’ve done something wrong you can forgive yourself, why you can’t forgive others? You will never truly be free unless you freely forgive. Hate is like a chain around your neck that leads you to places you don’t wanna go. It’ll lead you into darkness and desolation. You become a slave to that hatred, and it’ll only lead to your own destruction. You must break free. Mahatma Gandhi “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” Don’t let your today’s decision become your tomorrow’s regret!

I have learned a lot wise words in my life. These words are really useful for me. I think I can have a happy life and true contentment in life because of these words. If you can apply them in your life, it will be very useful for you, too.
Some people saw my words and said to me, “You are a wise man!” No I am not! “Wise men may not be learned; learned men may not be wise”. Wise man is a person who uses the mind creatively and he makes the right decision. I think I’ve earned myself a nickname for my personality “Fool-Wise Man” the half fool and the half wise man. Hahaha, it’s actually kind of funny and contradictory what they mean. Because of that way I can get through everything.

A wise man doesn’t make the mistake at all Why? Because the wise man knows how to observe. Wise people think first before they act while there are some smart people are really dumb, it’s because they know about something but just can’t put it to proper use. For example, you are in a trouble A smart man knows how to resolve and escape on that problem, while the wise man will not get into that trouble in the first place, because a wise man knows how to be not involve in that kind of problem.

Too much of something is bad. Hence, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Like most things, moderation is the key. Finding the balance is very important for me. I must bear this in mind at all times because I have an addictive personality.
If I came across anything in my reading that I wished to remember I would write it down on paper, in my phone, or on my laptop.

Philosophy has always been regarded as a means of discovering the secret of happiness. Sometimes people just don’t understand… How to understand quotes? “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” Albert Einstein “Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” ~ Confucius The difference makes the world beautiful.” What do you understand by that?  It means that everyone is unique in his/her own way and don’t look down on someone who is different from you. Personality is the traits that make you an individual. Character is an universal attribute. Like honesty or respect. You are born with personality but develop character. Let’s try another quote: “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” Helen Keller A note of inspiration and encouragement to help some people keep striving towards their goals, hopes and dreams. Basically it means that when something good in your life finishes you spend so long regretting its loss that you ignore other chances for happiness. It means do not waste time on negatives, because you might miss positives while you are sad. Everyone cannot succeed in everything they do, but just keep trying. Failing does not mean the end of everything. You should keep yourself-belief, find out your weak point and improve it. Failing to achieve is not a failure, but losing your hope and motivation is a true failure. https://dydara.wordpress.com/2011/05/09/when-one-door-of-happiness-closes-another-opens/  Read it carefully and visualized the situation. Read it again and again and try to figure out what the writers want to say. And use a dictionary if you need it, because some words these days mean different in the past days. Look at the quote and study it and think about it. Be understanding person Being understanding means listening to other people problems and taking in all of the information and think of how you would feel in their situation and also trying to help them if they want help. It Depend on our attitude, our way of understanding things and people and the way we react to them. An understanding person is someone who understands others and doesn’t judge them in any way, gives a person time alone when he or she needs it, doesn’t insult someone who’s just been hurt or stepped on, comforts others while giving them good advice that’s an understanding person to me. Put yourself in their situation and ask yourself a question, “if I were them, would I like that?” Then you will understand… Be open minded personOpen your heart to it. Let it in. Don’t hold strong opinions about things you don’t understand. Having an open mind consists of having patience and acceptance of all views no matter how dissimilar to your own that they may be. To understand negative thinking person, I have to think from the negative thinking person perspective.

I’ve learned to be self-aware, and that changed a lot of perceptions about myself, other people and life. I spent many long years of my life trying to understand how to become aware. I used to react with reflection, wonder why people act the way they Do? and rationalizing my every action.

If it’s just perception then why does it matter? Perception is how we personally view things; it’s our version of reality. When we don’t know someone personally, our perception is based on the signals we pick up from their words, body language, expressions, eye contact, etc. We also sense their degree of self-confidence and it influences our perception. Have you ever said: “I don’t know why, but I just don’t trust that person”? See, your mind didn’t have a logical reason for your lack of trust, but you still didn’t trust them. It’s because your perception was being influenced on a subconscious level. Perception may not be absolute reality, but it is your reality and that’s all that matters in a situation like this. You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.  ~Clay P. Bedford The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think—rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men. “No one can hurt your feeling unless you let them or deserve it.” Ignorance is a bliss” But sometimes we have to think about their criticism. One good sentence cannot apply to all situations, but most of them do. If you can understand what I mean here and keep that in mind you will become a happy person. It works wonders for me. Hope it helps you like it has helped me. 😉 I want you to be as happy as I am.

No one can hurt your feeling unless you let them or deserve it. I just realized what this sentence mean. When we haven’t been in the situation, we don’t know what this sentence is all about. I understand this when my parents and loved one’s words can hurt my feeling because I attach too much important to their words and I love them with all my heart. I allow them to hurt my feeling and I deserve that.

Experience all that life has to offer! 🙂 😦

Life is a great teacher. Something you only learn by experience in life and no book can teach you that. “Life happens when you’re busy making other plans” I came across this in my reading and I wrote it down in my book maybe about 4 years ago, a few months ago I read it again and I just understood it!

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. Confucius

I am not bragging or anything, some ideas I used to think of, very similar to what D.H Lawrence said about 100 year ago.

“But better die than live mechanically a life that is a repetition of repetitions.”

                                                                                 I live an alternative lifestyle.

Quotes can be easily figured out if the concept behind their origin is understood.

I think someone said this when he or she was having a broken heart “Love is like heaven but hurts like hell.” I had the most incredible time with my loved one. I really had. So I can understand this saying. Every time I am with my lover, in that moment it was as if we became one person. A great relationship is when you feel completely at home with another person. You can talk to them about anything and you don’t need to always be kissing them to feel happy. They bring out the best in you, and make you a better person. If you have never been in true love, you wouldn’t understand “Love is like heaven.” If you don’t have the experience of a broken heart, you wouldn’t understand this sentence “hurts like hell.”

My all time favorite quotes!

 I have many good sayings that I keep in my mind this is one of them. “Good things happen to a good person. So you guys should start do something good for your people around you. To do good deeds for people around me is my real ♥pleasure! 😉 “If you’re looking for friends when you need them…it’s too late.” — Mark Twain I think this quote refers to someone must have good connection with people first before you ask any favors from them.

Just let bygones be bygones used to tell someone they should forget about unpleasant things that happened in the past, and especially to forgive and forget something bad that someone has done to them: Forget about the argument you had, just let bygones be bygones and be friends again.

“When you are happy, you live a day. When you are not, you still live one day. Why don’t we make that day a happy day!” You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough. Youth is a once in a lifetime gift. Make it memorable and meaningful.  “In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away.”

“Time heals all pain.”


 A great man once said “life is hard. It’s even harder…if you’re stupid”. So it’s important indeed to keep your head chill buddy, you’re not that stupid.

Great minds talk about ideas; small minds talk about people, once said Eleanor Roosevelt I am a happy man in a happy world. Everything is depending on the way you think of it, If I think I am the one of the happiest men on earth, I am. I know it’s hard to have people think like we do. The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way, you just go with the flow! 😀 Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience. Although I am a happy man I still have some problems. I think everybody has a 100 problems. I don’t know that, like you are not supposed to solve them all, because the simple truth of it, it is not a problem if you think it is a problem it makes you have a problem.  

I spent almost half year to work in poor communities. I was so humbled to be a driver and put my all into it but what I got was very disappointed at my old job. I’m a glass-half-full kind of guy who views everything as a worthwhile experience. I learned a lot from my western friends at that place. I’ve spent almost 4 years to share good sayings and provided entertainment on Facebook, I want to sh

ow people the beauty of life and I want to cherish my good memories. I got so disappointed because some people think that I am show off and annoying on Facebook. One side of me wants to stop sharing funny pictures and good sayings. But another side says “Why should I give a damn about that low life people think.” I cannot please the world, in other words, I cannot satisfy everyone.

Do you understand everything you read?

Treat everyone with politeness even those who are rude to you, not because they are not nice but because you are nice” If we do the same thing as rude people we are not different from them. My Motivation Quotes & Sayings “Dare to dream” Motivation is the driving force by which humans achieve their goals. Motivation is said to be intrinsic or extrinsic. “It’s easy to stand with the crowd. It takes courage to stand alone.” “The people may be made to follow a course of action, but they may not be made to understand it.”

One sweet phrase can keep people warm for the whole winter. 🙂

Thoughtless words can wound as deeply as a sword, but wisely spoken words can heal.

time decides 
“The best revenge is success.”

My new way of making good sayings! 😀

My new way of making good sayings! 😀

Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half sorrow. But not share sorrow all the time. I never see anybody have a perfect life. Don’t make life difficult. Keep it simple. All these are for reading then it will make sense when it practically comes to life.

My favorite Khmer sayings: រឹង សូមអោយ រឹងប៉ឹង មិនមែន រឹងរូស បើ ទន់ សូមអោយ ទន់ភ្លន់ មិនមែន ទន់ជ្រាយ។ អស់កម្លាំងចិត្ដ នាំអោយអស់សង្ឃឹម នាំអោយអស់ភាពតស៊ូ!!!

Accept, forgive, and forget. I just discovered these three words are really important to solve most problems and very good lesson for life. For example: If the unpleasant people did something to upset you, you have to accept that “That kind of people are just like that.” And walk away from them. You should forgive the bad things that they did to you and forget about that things. “Let bygones be b

ygones”I don’t like feeling angry, being envious or hold a grudge against anyone!. When I have that, I’ll feel unhappy. I always make my feeling as clear as water. It’s not in my character to be jealous. But sometimes, I need to teach someone a lesson for those who spit on my life! Forgive, it’s important. Your ability to forgive is gonna determine the quality of the rest of your life more than anything else.”You will never truly be free unless you freely forgive. Hate is like a chain around your neck that leads you to places you don’t wanna go. It’ll lead you into darkness and desolation. You become a slave to that hatred, and it’ll only lead to your own destruction. You must break free.”

‘I really like my life. I’ve arranged my life so that I can do what I want.’ ‘Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.’ I’m just here and I’m doing the best I can. If you don’t understand that, then what can I do? Paul Prudhomme quotes In my experience, it helps. It really does. I hope it helps you like it has helped me. Let good sayings, be our guide. Sometimes I make a decision by looking at the quotes. I share everything I know about how to understand quotes. If you have any ideas regarding this topic, or good sayings, please leave a comment, thank you !

I was a sad man for a few years because of one thing. No matter what I did, I was not happy. And when I’ve started to enjoy my old life I feel I am happier than before. I have felt pretty awesome after reading many articles, writing several topics and hanging out with my friends.These things made me started to enjoy my old life. I just realized that there are so many wonderful things for me to enjoy. Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! Time heals all pain. If you get only happiness then you don’t feel its value, do you? It’s applicable to the word money as well.
Youth is a once in a lifetime gift. Make it memorable and meaningful. I don’t want to look back on my life and think, “I wish I did that.” Or “My precious youth is gone I’m all old.”

My Art of Living or Beauty of Life

This topic is dedicated to my lil bro Ashley Phoenix. Thank you so much for correcting my grammatical errors. It’s very sweet of you to help me in this matter. I couldn’t have done it without you! You saved my day. I appreciate that. I think this topic is the longest time I spent writing it out of all the topics I’ve written! 😀 My hope is that this topic, after the many hours that I’ve put into it, will inspire you and help you to live an inspired life and meaningful life. There’s a lot to live for in this life. :)

Living the inspired life means living with purpose, meaning, and intentionality. It means living out our callings. It means choosing to LIVE and not just be carried along by the circumstances of life. I Live the Inspired Life- I pray you’ll be inspired, too!

You cannot choose where to be born, but you can choose where to walkThe choice is always in our own hands!

I think a meaningful life consists of every aspect of life, good or bad. Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.

The art of living means you are directly and actively involved in constructing your life just as an architect plans and maps out the structure before executing the acting of building. Likewise you are the architect of your own life. Art means being creative and requires that you question the limits within which you actively live your life. “I really like my life. I’ve arranged my life so that I can do what I want.” This picture was taken from bakerthebrand.com

You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough.

“Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.” –Joseph Campbell

To read requires patience! 😀 

At first I wanted to name this post “How to not be bored of life” Or “How to live a life that’s not boring”, but then I realized what I wrote here was just my lifestyle.

Today, in the modern life, most of the people face one common problem and that is stress or anxiety. An extreme amount of stress can actually affect your life and health. When it comes to reducing stress, then you can try the Art of Living. So in this article, I’ll share some small changes I would like to make to find more happiness in my daily life. I hope you’ll find something here that you can use to make your life better, too. For the last few years I have developed my sense of gratitude, understanding, patience, forgiveness and self improvement. I will also share my tips to help you design your destiny and get what you want.

Are you bored with your life? Are you looking forward to starting the practice of the art of living?

Cheer up. Nothing happens by chance. Open your mind to new ideas. Figure out what you want in life and learn how to ask for it. I feel that you must know the answer as well, right? If you are bored with your life, this is a good place for you to get some ideas. Seriously, it sounds like you haven’t got a thing to look forward to, and you are not happy with your life, so switch it up! Try something new.

Enjoy your life. It basically means that living a life that has a meaning. It has some relevance, to be happy & make others happy. A life full of joy where we are living it up for today and not for tomorrow. A life where life is itself satisfied.

Improve the quality of your life with the help of the art of living. Everyone aims to achieve more happiness, love and peace in their respective lives. This fast paced world the pursuit of happiness seems an impossible idea. Instead people live a rather stressful life. Often people wonder about what they can do to reduce stress. If stress and tension is really ruining the quality of your life then read this and apply them in your life. Find out more about the practice the art of living and make a sincere effort in improving the quality of your life. 

Most people are not very much aware of the degree of stress that is unduly having a negative impact upon their lives. People learn to cope with stress and settle for limited happiness in the hustle and bustle of modern fast paced life. They start thinking that stress and tension are very common and this is the way of the modern life. Therefore instead of living the profound peace and joy which should be natural to the human experience, they continue with their stressful life. If you work really hard then you deserve the peace and happiness of mind. If you have a very busy lifestyle, then you can also start practicing this art of living. If it sounds interesting to you, then take some time out and discover your peace of mind with this practice, art of living. 

Dara’s motto is, “Being a hedonist is a philosophical way of my life. In other words, I like to live and behave in ways that I can get as much pleasure out of life as possible according to the belief that the most important thing in life is to enjoy oneself. Also, I like to learn, to experience and to explore life.”

                                               I feel fresh after I get my barber to wash my hair!

I shared this because I want to tell you about Beauty of Life! 🙂 Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them!

Most of the money I have go to travelling and relaxation stuff such having my hair wash at barber shop, massage, steam, jacuzzi bathtub. I rarely buy new clothes. Looking at people around me, they have Iphone 4, Ipad 2, expensive digital cameras. I don’t have that latest products like them! But I am still happy with my life! 😀 Buy what you need, not what you want. I need to travel monthly, if not I am become a stressful and aggressive person.

I don’t know everything, but I do know one great thing which is how to live a happy and meaningful life. I am a very simple man. All I really want is everything. hehehee just kidding  I just wanna live my life to the fullest. Nothing more, nothing less. 

I really don’t know how to express myself. Well, I’m nobody! But you have no idea what I am capable of! You know who you’re dealing with. About to let you know. Heheeheehee 🙂 just kidding. I just act tough and that’s how I get through everything 🙂

I have a great passion for life. In my life, I have known many feelings from the most incredible time and proudest moment to the most painful and shameful. But right now, I don’t know about two important feelings, how it feels to be a married man and a father. 

Life is a great teacher, something you only learn by experience in life and no book can teach you that! I have learned many wonderful lessons. Before, I was a dare-devil when I got drunk and sad, I drove very fast, it could get me killed and others too, without realizing the value of life. That was the stupidest thing I did. Now, no more. One life is connected to many hearts. When you have a problem or lose your life, it can damage the heart of your friends, loved one, relatives and especially your parents. Don’t want to cause grief to my parents and other people. There’s a lot to live for in this life.

Life is wonderful! 🙂

Why? there are so many reasons that I and you can think of that makes our life wonderful. For me I am so blessed to have my lovely parents and I’m so grateful for the family and so many friends that love me and care about.

Choose your social environment carefully and express yourself. You’re an adult, why let others control your life?

Do you feel that you’re not understood by your social environment because of your lifestyle, your beliefs or your passions? Do you sometimes feel lonely and suffer from it? Be aware, you’re not alone and someone, somewhere, is eager to hear your voice!  https://dydara.wordpress.com/2011/03/07/the-man-the-boy-and-the-donkey/

I have a short attention span but when I have decided to do something, I put my all into it. I think it is good I can find a new thing I think it is good I can find a new thing. “Out with the Old, in with the new” I find myself getting bored easily with people but gratitude, love, obsession, fun, and friendship stand out above that thing and make me not get bored with them. Just because I have a short attention span doesn’t mean I can’t have a long one. I actually can pay attention for a long time unless things get really boring. 

My easy-going nature accepts more people into my life, but I choose to hang out with easy-going and understanding people only. Some friends are not easy to be their friends and some people are bad for my life! Not all people are difficult people. 😀

Living the inspired life means living with purpose, meaning, and intentionality. It means living out our callings. It means choosing to LIVE and not just be carried along by the circumstances of life. I Live the Inspired Life- I pray you’ll be inspired, too! My parents who inspired me to have a happy life! https://dydara.wordpress.com/2010/05/04/living-the-inspired-life/

Life is what you make it, so make the best of it. Or make fun of it, depending on your sense of humor! The same things that make a story interesting can also make a person’s life interesting. After all, aren’t we the main character in our own life’s story?

It seems way too easy these days to get caught up in the “passive life” and not going out and creating experiences. 

What should I do with my life?

This is a powerful question most of us ask ourselves at some point in life. What is it that I should do with my life? What is my purpose in life, my passion? 

Know what you want > Do what you love > Live your passion > Chase your dream > Be free > Stand for something > Get more out of life > Smile> Believe in yourself > Find the answer to the one question

With My  Prime Minister H.E. Samdech Hun Sen. Graduated with honor

Cambodia Prime Minister H.E. Samdech Hun Sen. It’s such a great honor of my academic life. Graduated with honors. It’s the small victories that keep me going.

What are you doing to make your life worthwhile?

I’ve discovered I need to help others and began doing so. I needed to test myself mentally and physically. I have done many things to prove myself something. Proving myself I can be a humble person and not afraid of any hardship!

Dara has always had a passion to help people have a happy life by sharing great sayings through his facebook and blog. I want to run a life worth living. I can tell you that I’ve discovered I need to help others and begun doing so. Our real mission is to find our own purpose as we live. We never know what it is. It’s just for us to search for it to make our existence meaningful. Being rich isn’t everything in life. It’s about living a healthy life, respecting others.

Knowing yourself leads to knowing your values. What we value shows up in how we spend our time, so spending your time on clarifying what you want, what you’re good at, and what it important to you is worth the investment.

We all like to feel that what we are doing counts for something that is really worthwhile. We like to see practical results. They are not spectacular; no one pays much attention to them; and we naturally feel that when we do something; we want it to be something that people can see and that they will think is worthwhile. And something that we ourselves can feel is worthwhile. And now, dear reader, what is really worthwhile in life? Is it only those things that make a great show? Is it only those things that the world counts great? There is one thing and just one that stands out above all other things in the human life, and that is faithfulness. No matter what our life may be, where we may be, now what is our situation, if we are just faithful it is sure to count, and to count a great deal. That is one thing that you can do: you can be faithful to yourself. You can live pure and keep shining every day, no matter what the circumstances maybe. Just remember to keep shining. That is the thing that counts.“Integrity is doing the right thing – even when nobody is watching!”

 My life is all about putting off certain things and putting on certain things. Let Go Of Worry, Let Go Of Discontent.

Just let bygones be bygones used to tell someone they should forget about unpleasant things that happened in the past, and especially to forgive and forget something bad that someone has done to them: Forget about the argument you had, just let bygones be bygones and be friends again.

THE CORE VALUES WE MUST TAKE ON TO ENHANCE LIFE

Make Good Use of Time
What are the values that can enhance one’s life? The first thing that we must take on is the wise use of time. Benjamin Franklin said time is the stuff that life is made of. We all have the same amount of timed, don’t we?

Everyone says, “How the time flies.”
The days go by and they are years, and the years finally become our whole life.

Each daily portion can be wasted, or it can be a pleasure, before it is gone forever.
If a review of the day concludes that we were too stressed, too busy, didn’t accomplish anything, didn’t have any fun, then it has been another lost piece of precious life.

Never look at what you have lost. Always look at what is left with you. The question in life is not how much time we have, but the question is what shall we do with it? We all have the same amount of time, but do we all do the same thing with it? 

“In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away.”

Live One Day At A Time
Our lives are made up of a million moments, spent in a million different ways.
Some are spent searching for love, peace and harmony.
Others are spent surviving day to day.

But there is no greater moment that when we find that life, with all its joys and sorrows, is meant to be lived one day at a time. Whatever you do with it is how you are spending it, spending it foolishly or wisely.

The second thing that we need to enhance our lives is work—works of faith, works of obedience growing out of faith. Anna Robertson Brown said, “But not any kind of work. Ask yourself, is the work vital, strengthening my own character or inspiring others of helping the world.”  That’s what we must ask. What kind of work are we involved in? Will it enhance my character, my spiritual life? Will it help people? I know we have to rest and get our sleep and rebuild our energies, but many times we rest too much. We’re going to have plenty of time to rest from our works and our labors. But whatever we find that we put our hand to doing, let’s do it energetically, sincerely, devotedly, because we are not going to be able to do that when we go in the grave. You can’t do any work; you can’t write any articles.

Seek Happiness

The third thing we need to take on is happiness. I am a happy man in a happy world. Everything is depending on the way you think of it. If I think I am one of the happiest men on earth, then I am. I know it’s hard to make people think the way we do. The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way, you just go with the flow, my friends! 😀

I think if you’ll look up the origin of the word “happiness,” it goes back to the idea of happenstance, things that just happen. Some people cannot be happy in the happenstance of life; things have got to be perfect, the sea must be without a ripple or they can’t be happy. But that’s not what happiness is. Anna Robertson Brown said, “If you are not happy today, you will never be happy. Strive to be patient, unselfish, purposeful, strong, eager and work mightily. If you do these things with a grateful heart, you will be happy, at least as happy as it is given man to be on earth.” Are you really happy? Please notify your face, some of you.

Put on♥Love

The fourth thing that we must put on is love. Cherish love. One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love. Let your love shine through your actions and behaviors. Love is both an action and a feeling. The action of love generates a blissful feeling called by the same name. When the action stops, the blissful feeling is replaced with pain. Every person is capable of great love (and its opposite, fear, which generates all painful emotions such as hate, greed and jealousy). I think love is “Do for others more than you do for yourself.” In true love, there is no evil.


Are you ready to take the lid off of your life and live with abandon (don’t let anything hold you back. Try everything you want to, and don’t let fear make decisions for you. Go for it!)?

It’s now or never!!!

I am a man full of contradictions! 🙂 


The law of the influence to your life:

Character- who you are
Relationships- who you know
Knowledge- what you know
Intuition- what you feel
Experience- where you have been
Past success- what you’ve done
Ability- what you can do.

Good communication, knowledge, friendliness, money, optimism, and persistence can take you anywhere. 🙂

I am a man who is made up of a thousand kinds of men which makes me become an interesting person whose never boring life is full of thousands of ideas.:) Sometimes I am talkative, and some other time I am a quiet man. Usually, I like being around people but there are also times when I want to be alone. I am often easy to understand. Though, once in a while, no one can read my mind. I am a man of multifarious interests. Multifarious means having many aspects.

I hope my art of living can help you to find a new meaning of life and stress-free life. So what are you waiting for? Read on to find out more about the art of living. Apply some ideas from here that suits you.

Get a job and work your butt off! That would give you something to do/think about! Feeling like you have to please others makes you feel like a drone, like you aren’t living for yourself. Get crazy! (Disclaimer: Don’t do anything illegal) Cheer up! Your life is what you make it! Good luck and I hope you find something that makes you happy!

My art of living means live my life to the fullest and enjoying life with positive attitude.

It’s very hard to have a stress-free life, but people can learn to cope with problems and have less tension in their lives.

Cognitive Therapy – learning skills to use tools to see the positive of problems and not always the negative side and to constructively find a solution to the problem.

  Eating a well balanced diet. Diet is everything when it comes to having a healthy body and this includes foods that feed the brain (circuit board to the body.)

  Exercise is also very healthy for tension. Sports, jogging, bicycling, swimming, etc.

  Learning to relax by even just one hour a day of kicking back, shutting off the phone, TV and listening to soothing music or a hot bubble bath.

 It’s now or never! 

Well, looking at timeless advice from time to time helps me. And in this article, I’ll share some ideas of my favorite timeless thoughts on motivation; some thoughts that motivate and inspire me.

Living a happier life often seems to be about living your big dreams and making a lot of effort over a long period of time.

My greatest enthusiasm is travelling.
My second greatest enthusiasm is philosophy.

Enthusiasm= a subject or activity that interests you very much.

Travelling has been my Life!  (= the most important and enjoyable thing in my life) 

 Choosing some things you are passionate about and realizing there are no right or wrong answer to this. It’s really just about choosing and experiencing yourself in whatever the choice is.

Diversity is the spice of life which means go to different places, meet different people, and see different things. We only get one life so we owe it to ourselves to see as much of this beautiful world as possible. For many of us, lying on a beach for two weeks each year is just not enough any more. We want to see ancient monuments, extraordinary scenery, endangered wildlife, foreign culture, architecture and art- Places that give us the chance to grow and expand our horizons.

That’s my proud moment. ♥Memory last a life time! 🙂 My Life is very interesting when I am on youth exchange program.

Find out your enthusiasm! 

Discover your passion
Find your calling and you will start to experience the ecstasy of an inspired life.

Dedicate your energy to it
Passion + production = performance. People who love what they do, get the best results.

Build a business or find a job you love
Make your calling your work, and you never work a day in your life.

Motivation can be a huge help for you to achieve what you want in life, but how can you find all that motivation you need?

Philosophy has always been regarded as means of discovering the secret of happiness. 

In my life, I have learned a lot of wise words. These words are really useful for my life, and I think I can have a happy life and true contentment in life because of these words. If you can apply them in your life, it will be very useful for you, too. It works wonders for me. Hope it helps you as much as it has helped me. 😉

On 05th June 2011, I changed my name on Facebook to Gung Ho Zeal which means extremely enthusiastic about doing something. I want to remind myself about the opposite meaning of these words. Too much of something is bad. Hence, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Like most things, moderation is the key. Finding the balance is very important for me. I must bear this in mind at all times because I have an addictive personality.

“No one can hurt your feeling unless you let them or deserve it.” “Ignorance is bliss” But sometimes we have to think about their criticism. One good sentence cannot apply to all situations, but most of them do. Let good sayings, be our guides! If you can understand what I mean here and keep that in mind, you will become a happy person.

Quotations help us remember the simple yet profound truths that give life perspectives and meanings. When it comes to life’s most important lessons, we can all use gentle reminders.  All these are for reading. Then it will make sense when it practically comes to life.

“When you are happy, you live a day. When you are not, you still live one day. Why don’t we make that day a happy day?”

The golden Rules: “Treat others the way you want to be treated” “Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you.”

Confucius “you should not do to others what you would not have them do to you.” These are gentle and heartfelt guides to the fundamentals of living a life rich in joy and contribution.

 Be a positive person

Angry & Miserable – Don’t Let It Be You!

Positive thinking brings inner peace, success, improved relationships, better health, happiness and satisfaction. It also helps the daily affairs of life move more smoothly, and makes life look bright and promising. Read more about positive thinking click here: https://dydara.wordpress.com/2010/03/16/positive-thinking-your-key-to-success/

Listen to the positive thought every time. The influence of words is timeless, let them work for you, and remember to always carry a smile in your heart. 

I’m a glass-half-full kind of guy. Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience. I am of a cheerful disposition. I am a resilient man – I won’t be unhappy for long. Just give me a couple of days and I can get over almost anything.

I’m enjoying every minute of the single life while it lasts. I don’t want to be tied to Anyone! Don’t think that I don’t value in a relationship.

I am a man who enjoy almost every moment of my life. Even when I had a broken heart, I still enjoyed it. You know why? At least when you talk about it I know how it feels. I used to be a man whose broken heart needed mending. But recently, I have felt pretty awesome after reading many articles, writing several topics and hanging out with my friends. These things made me started to enjoy my old life. I’ve just realized that there are so many wonderful things for me to enjoy. Life is filled with Pretty Things. Enjoy them! Time heals all pain.

Before, money was not a problem. I liked to have massage therapy or body scrub. Some weekends I got my barber to wash my hair, or my dentist to clean my teeth. But now I can’t afford all these things. Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! I think I am not a typical Cambodian man and I was born in the wrong body because the way I think and behave are like Western people. But it doesn’t mean I don’t proud of my parents. I am most proud of myparents and I’m so proud to be Cambodian. Individuality is not a trait shared by everyone. I respect individuality of everyone. But some people don’t understand mine. The difference makes the world beautiful which means that everyone is unique in his/her own way and don’t look down on someone who is different from you.

 They can have beneficial effects on the human body. I mean after a bath in the jacuzzi bathtub you will feel better both physically and mentally because it is proven that this kind of bath is an excellent stress reliever.

 It is perfect for your body, too, because it has a positive effect on the blood circulation thanks to the jets of air and water that spray the skin and act as a stimulator for your body circulation. If you suffer from any kind of back pain or neck pain, then you will find your jacuzzi a gift from God because it will massage you with dozens of little fingers through the little opening in the bathtub.

                                                           Experience all that life has to offer!

                                              Life is not only about survive but also well-being.

Sometimes we have wilderness periods in our lives. I★♥love to drink alcohol on special occasions. But I’m not an alcoholic! 

Fine Scotch malt brand whiskey. How you drink it is more important than the brand you’re drinking.

I’ve never really cared much for materialism – Drink whisky with Australia steak are more to my taste (= what I like). Taste= Ability to appreciate what is beautiful! :D 
Some people don’t have their own taste that they don’t see something beautiful in their life.
“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” ~ Confucius

It’s good to change one’s life style once in a while.

I was sick and tired of staying at my room so I went to stay at hotel for one night for playing video game and I could swim for free at swimming pool. I felt awesome! 🙂
For things, I have strong sense of appreciation or taste which means the ability to appreciate what is beautiful!
For people, I am grateful to those who have done something for me, and I always remember that! 😀

 It’s the power of gratitude. When you develop the habit of gratitude in any circumstances, you also surrender your obsessions with the controlling of everything in your life and let the door open for Divine interventions and creative solutions.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

Friendships: An Essential Part of Life! 😀 My closest friend’s family! 😀

I could have never imagined how two simple words as “Thank You” would transform my life. I have been blessed behind my craziest dreams. However, the most amazing blessing is the ability to live in the instant with peace and joy whatever the situation. When I say “thank you” for the present moment, I raise my awareness of the “now,” and I authorize myself to live fully in any moment. I’m not on autopilot anymore and believe me, this is a life transformation experience.

When you’re grateful for the good things in your life, you attract even more of blessings into your life. The more you experience this principle in your life, the more energy you can invest in making your dreams come true. 

 Build a big network:

Real life example

I have friends almost from all walks of life, who knows? Sometimes, bad people can come in handy. Good things happen to A Good person. I always behave in a pleasant and kind way towards everyone. I always give tips to those who deserve them. One night I was drunk, and my car accidentally scratched the car that I parked next to. I didn’t realize about it until the next morning. However, a man who worked at the hotel helped me polish that scratched car, so I didn’t have any trouble with that car’s owner.

Live the life of dreams! They have their dream jobs. Their businesses are successful. They live in that dream house of theirs, drive those luxury cars and have the perfect family! Doesn’t that make you envious? Maybe even angry?

It’s not your fault that you haven’t yet achieved the results you want in your life!

Because it’s something else that’s been preventing you from attaining the success you deserve.

How do I know this?

Because you work your socks off every single day in pursuit of your goals. You put your sweat, blood, and tears into your job, career or business to just ‘make you become *successful*, and then you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor!  It happens’.

Knowing your own strengths and weaknesses are very important keys for life.

Knowing clearly about what you want!

When I was a small boy I liked to play computer games, and my uncle asked “How do you know how to play it?” I replied that I read its instruction. And in the last few years I love playing video games. I am good at playing soccer video game because I spend a lot of time practicing it, so I know almost all the functions. My understanding about this really match Sun Tzu’s sayings

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss. If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose. If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.”

This has been more tersely interpreted and condensed into the modern proverb:

If you know both yourself and your enemy, you can win numerous (literally, ‘a hundred’) battles without jeopardy.

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”
— Aristotle

 

Everybody is capable of doing something great in their life… they either don’t believe in themselves or think it’s impossible to make a difference. The greatest people of all time started out alone, trying to make a difference… and they did. You Can too…

Everyone cannot succeed in everything they do, but just keep trying. Failing does not mean the end of everything. You should keep yourself-belief, find out your weak point and improve it. Failing to achieve is not a failure, but losing your hope and motivation is a true failure.
For me, my leadership is not good. So I’ve tried to read a lot about it. I also read about anger management. Believe me, not everyone can understand and apply the words in their life. They can read but some people can’t apply them in their life, because they don’t have the tendency to improve themselves. The words I’ve posted here are just a bunch of words, but to some people, they are very useful words. Not everyone see them that way though! It depends on people’s tendency.

Let me give you example of concrete results in my life.  I used to have this thought that I am not good at everything but I am good at what I do. Why is that so? When I have decided to do something, I put my all into it. In other words, I am extremely enthusiastic about doing something. When I wrote this, I write it with passion. It’s a valuable piece of work for me. The time and thought I spent to search on the Internet to get more ideas to write this topic. My hope is that my topic, after the many hours that I’ve put into it, will inspired you. I’m looking forward to the future with a smile. I want you to be as happy as I am.

To be honest, even though I majored in English and I graduated 4 years ago, I’ve already forgotten many rules of English grammar, so academic writing is very hard for me. Sometimes I feel like my brain is empty, and I don’t remember anything. Maybe it’s because I am so carefree and drink too much alcohol. Now I am studying English grammar again. Anyway, I am good at reading and generating ideas. I like to tell myself repeatedly and unconsciously that I can be whoever I want to be if I work hard at it. I have the opportunity to challenge myself and to apply the knowledge I gained from my reading. I am proud to say that I’ve got many things that I wanted.

You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough. Only one life to live, I want to make the most of it. How can we accomplish the most with the energies and powers at our command?

“Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can – there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.”

“There is only one success – to spend your life in your own way.”

– Christopher Morley

I can do whatever I want with my life. It’s my life. I’ve never been afraid of any deviation, and I don’t really care if you think I’m strange. I ain’t gonna change. And I’m never gonna care about my bad reputation as long as I know how to take a good care of my life. Do not step on other people’s shoes, do not spit on other people’s life, and do not force someone against his or her will. I go my own true way. That works a whole lot better. Sometimes I can hurt someone unintentionally. I am sorry about that! “Judge me all you want, but keep the verdict to yourself.” Don’t go the way life takes you but take the life the way you go.

Chealsea Match. I have come all the long way to watch this match. I was so excited, the atmosphere was amazing. I remember seeing the mascot walking around the ground and the girl with the Coke super cup come through cable before the match and was amazed at that day. The match was incredible and ended with Chealsea winning Thai Premier League all stars 4 – 0. I was especially impressed by all Chealsea’s players’ form. Excited Day 24.07.2011

:D The bad days make the good ones better! Let’s do something fun! :D Let’s create a memory! To a good life! :D

In my wildest dreams:

I guess I still have a lot to get out of my system before I do the whole marriage trip, you know? I’m one of those people that wants to try everything once before I die. And the good things twice.

Here are some of the things on my bucket list:

 Peace boat, travel around the Globe.  It’s the magic of risking everything for a dream nobody sees but you.


                                                                   Skydiving

Scuba Diving

                                                                Bungee Jump

                                                       Skinny-dip in the Ocean

Warnings:

Believe me! Whatever you do, it’ll cost something or you have to pay the price for that. No matter how much you change, you still have to pay the price for the thing you’ve done. The good things I do, it will pay me a very pleasant price:) and the bad things I do, it will pay me a very unpleasant price:( People will get what they deserve. So be careful what you wish for!

We need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be.

I am a believer in life-long learning. Love of learning is the guide of life. Real Learners are very open mind and very humble to learn from others and think that everyone can be their teachers. Everywhere is school, School without roof!

I learn a great deal from my online friends each day, for that I appreciate, thank you so much!

Life is an ice cream, enjoy it before it melts!

Life is a Journey. Enjoy the Ride!

Take care!

To a good life! 😀

When one door of happiness closes, another opens

This topic is dedicated to my beloved lecturer Mealea. Thank you so much for a lovely recommendation letter. That’s very sweet of you to help me in this matter. It means a lot to me. I’d like to say thank you again. I wish you all the best to you and your family. Take care! 😀

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” Helen Keller

A note of inspiration and encouragement to help some people keep striving towards their goals, hopes and dreams.


Basically it means that when something good in your life finishes you spend so long regretting its loss that you ignore other chances for happiness. It means do not waste time on negatives, because you might miss positives while you are sad.

I’ve learned that you can’t have everything and do everything at the same time– Oprah Winfrey

 You just cannot have it all.  Dy Dara

I am a man full of contradictions. I could go through it and show the numerous contraction of me. I have the best parents in the world but I have the most unsupported brother on the planet! 

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but combines with my positive thinking make it enough!” Recently I am in a good mood, for some unknown reasons, I’m feeling fresh and so happy. Sometimes I drive on the way, I can’t stop smiling. Although I am a very happy man I still have some problems. I’m more of a Dale Carnegie adherent. Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions; it is governed by our mental attitude. He is completely right. So I always have positive thinking! 

My life is full of blessings and curses!  “When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.”

Life is wonderful! 🙂
Why? there are so many reasons that I and you can think of that makes our life wonderful. For me I am so blessed to have my lovely parents and I’m so grateful for the family and so many friends that love me and care about. Or I can think “My life sucks!” I just turned 27 a few months ago. I still have no sense of direction. I now realize that I am 3 years away from 30. Not that 30 is old. I’m just not where I want to be in my life right now. No real job to do, that’s how my life is at present…I do not know what I’m doing, where I’m going, or even who I am. Many things I thought I was certain of have now become questionable. Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have. Dale Carnegie 

Choices In Life

Any change, any loss, does not make us victims.
Others can shake you, surprise you or disappoint you.
But they can’t prevent you from moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. On every turn of life, you will always have a choice. And that choice can be your power. The choice is always in our own hands!

You cannot choose where to be born, but you can choose where to walk!

I never feel alive like this for the last few years! 😀

I was a broken heart man who needs mending. Recently I have felt pretty awesome after reading many articles, writing several topics and hanging out with my friends. These things made me start to enjoy my old life. I just realized that there are so many wonderful things for me to enjoy. Life is filled with Pretty Things, enjoy them! Time heals all pain. A few years ago I was not so happy because my heart was broken but I had big budget for travelling. Right now I don’t have that much money but I still travelling cheap especially when money was the big issue but it got me thinking, I am happier than the last few years. You know what the happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.”

I’ll be happy once I’ve done this certain thing.
We all say this often not realizing what it brings. What if you can not have them you cannot have happiness? We look only to the future for our happiness. Letting life slip through our fingers in.

This wasn’t supposed to happen…it wasn’t meant to be…No matter how hard I try, I fail!

Life doesn’t always turn out exactly how you plan it. Sometimes it turns out better.

In 2007, I failed to get my student visa for my study in USA,  but one year later, I visited Australia and I was selected by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport as a national leader of Cambodian contingent, to lead a group of Cambodian youth delegates during the course of the Youth Camp for Asia’s Future 2008 program, in South Korea. Moreover, I can have good communication with my god brothers and many friends, but I just can’t have good communication with my own brother. I have the most unsupported brother in the world. But Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate him! 😀

I love to travel

I love to travel

 

I was a NL of Youth Contingent!

                 


We must always remember that in this journey to our purpose, our success and our happiness that when a door closes it is not the end of the road but it actually might be a blessing in disguise. As we work towards or goals, wants and dreams we tend to hit obstacles, walls or things just do not go our way. Keeping our courage and facing those will allow us to come that much closer to what we are striving for. Understanding and keeping faith that when one door closes another will open can allow you to not miss those opportunities that are so often skipped over because of focusing on what we cannot control.

Hold on tight, keep your dreams and hopes close and never feel discouraged when a door closes as that just might be the reason success will come your way. Stay open, positive and happy with the results in life from your hard work, heart and passion. Make the best of the situation and only focus on what you can control.

You do not want to miss an open door because you are focusing too much on the closed door…

Philosophy has always been regarded as a means of discovering the secret of happiness. What really is that has the amazing power to make us happy? That gives us joy, pleasure, enormous satisfaction?
The question is how we can relate it on our daily life?
I can relate good sayings to my daily life, for example: No one can hurt your feeling unless you let them or deserve it. I just realized what this sentence mean. When we haven’t been in the situation, we don’t know what this sentence is about.
Remember that failure and disappointment are a part of life.
If you get only happiness then you don’t feel its value, do you?
Life is always full of ups and downs. We should not feel depressed when things are not going our way. Instead we should motivate ourselves to overcome the hurdle and enjoy life.

When all’s well with the world, we should not be overjoyed. Everything is temporary, life is always changing.

Look at the whole picture, never at parts of our life. And we should not be involved with each event. Take each incident as it happens and don’t attach too much importance to the outcome.

“A man can succeed at almost anything for which he has unlimited enthusiasm.”
Charles M. Schwab
Listen to the positive thought every time. The influence of words is timeless, let them work for you, and remember to always carry a smile in your heart.
Everyone cannot succeed in everything they do, but just keep trying. Failing does not mean the end of everything. You should keep yourself-belief, find out your weak point and improve it. Failing to achieve is not a failure, but losing your hope and motivation is a true failure. What I am saying here is not teaching you. I am not qualified to teach anyone, but I just want to share some ideas with you guys, audiences.  If you’ve never failed you’ve never tried.

I am a good many things, but a businessman I am not I mean I am not good at making money. It’s like a pain in the ass. The highest views of my blog is about 400 views per day and I want to make my money from my blog and I don’t know how! The people around me have everything, my brother and some of my friends make a lot money. How about me? I just save up my money every day to take my monthly trip. When I thought about it, this idea came to my mind “You can win life by all means..Yes..
If you simply avoid two things…
1. Comparing – with others
2. Expecting – from other
Life will be more beautiful!!” And I feel better! 🙂 09.12.2011

Life is a journey. Enjoy the ride! 😀 

I hope this writing can spread happiness to everyone!

How to be a sweet person

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 11:35 pm

Happy Khmer New Year! 🙂 I wish you all the best to you and your family! 🙂

How are you, my friends? I’m not sure what to say, but I want you to know I care! 🙂

I am not the most pleasant man to walk on the earth but I have friends around the world! 🙂

This Topic is dedicated to one of my dearest friends, Kang Rithisal(Bong Sal). 🙂 Thanks for being such a wonderful inspiration to a hundreds youth all over the Cambodia. “Your being small doesn’t serve the world…And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.” -Nelson Mandela

Sometimes, a hug is all what we need! 🙂

How to be a sweet person?
Role around in sugar! hehehe just kidding! 🙂

You want to be a lovely person?
“If you want to be loved, be lovable.” Ovid

Someone taught me something very important.

Sweet person is not all about saying the sweet words, it is about doing the sweet things.

For example, you know that today is your friend’s birthday and you make a surprised birthday cake for him or her, that is kind of sweet thing to do.
Give other example of sweet thing to do: You see someone sick on his or her Facebook status, you just write I wish you well and take care. I think that’s very sweet of you. DO SOMETHING NICE FOR THEM.
I know how to make good use of this lesson. 😉
If you can apply this lesson in your relationship, your lover will love and miss you the most out of their ex-lovers. If we can apply these good sayings in our lives, we shall almost never get into trouble. In fact, that sayings, if followed, will bring us countless friends and constant happiness. But the very instant we break the law, we shall get into endless trouble. Let good saying, be our guide. 😉 It works wonders for me. I hope it helps you like it has helped me.

The sweet person is the one who is having a friendly, pleasing disposition; characterized by kindliness and gentleness, having a generally agreeable taste, smell, sound, appearance, etc.; pleasant and of course last but not the least agreeable to the mind and gratifying sweet praise.

Thoughtless words can wound as deeply  as a sword, but wisely spoken words can heal.”

you are a sweet friend! Such sweet words from a sweet person! God bless you my friend!

Old couple like this are really so cute! 🙂

Zoroaster said: “Doing good to others is not a
duty. It is a joy, for it increases your own health and happiness.”

 I have many good sayings that I keep in my mind this is one of them. “Good things happen to a good person. So you guys should start do something good for your people around you. To do good deeds for people around me is my real ♥pleasure! ;)  “If you’re looking for friends when you need them…it’s too late.” — Mark Twain I think this quote refers to someone must have good connection with people first before you ask any favors from them.

A sweet person has sweetness in his or her mannerisms, speech and actions . sweet person thinks sweet acts sweet and spreads sweetness by his or her very being to all around him/her. Somebody who shows compassion, sympathy, is very giving of themselves, honest, soft-spoken. A person who has the art of bringing happiness in people around him or her, has the tendency to create joy in others , knows the art of making friends from strangers.

The law is this: Always make the other person feel important.
John Dewey “The deepest urge in human nature is “the desire to be important””
and William James said, “The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.”

“treat everyone with politeness even those who are rude to you, not because they are not nice but because you are nice” If we do the same thing as rude people we are not different then them.

The golden Rules for the world: “Treat others the way you want to be treated”  “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” So let’s obey the Golden Rule, and give unto others what we would have others give unto us, How? When? Where? The answer is: All the time, everywhere.

Being a sweet person entails thinking less of yourself, and more others.
Learn how to do for others more than you do for yourself. One way to put this into practice is to do random acts of kindness, just little things. With that said; but, if you didn’t know, or didn’t care about doing something special for yourself once in a while, you then wouldn’t know how to, or what to do for others, either.

He is my closest friend! 😀 I love him the most out of my friends! 😀

The fastest way to become a sweet person is to keep doing nice things for other people. Some change seems to take place inside me when I help others. A passion for sharing great sayings. Dara has always had a passion to help people have a happy life. I’m looking forward to the future with a smile. I want you to be as happy as I am.

Another example of sweet person: Have a beach-dinner 

Treat your love to a candlelit dinner under the stars, preferably to the accompaniment of some music playing off somewhere in the background. There is nothing more romantic than a dinner under the stars!! 🙂 You can arrange this also near a lake or a pond also so romantic. In this case to top it all, you can rent a small boat and row it after dinner to go out to the middle of a lake and watch the stars.

Some of the most unpleasant people and difficult people I have been around were self-centered “loners” who never seemed to consider others or their needs.

He is such a sweet friend, he bought a surprised birthday cake for me! Thank you so much my best friend.

Some poeple are sweet by virtue of being plain simple, simply the best. others have to expend their energy up and about talking to other people. I think before you decide to become a sweet person or anyone in mind, you must first ask yourself: is this how you wish to accept yourself, or are you trying to please others and risk becoming a slave to other people’s standards? If the latter, then assess how much you will gain and what are the benefits in the long run, and ask yourself are those standards realistic at all? But if this is how you wish to accept yourself, then fine, it is now an issue of self-improvement, but remember that you will still retain some of your original character. To become a sweet person requires inner strength, and inner strength is what we must first have in whatever situation, which can then help you to help others and achieve whatever you wish to achieve. You should have firm belief and optimism, then do it step-by-step, don’t expect changes overnight. Be sweet to closest around you, then be sweet to others especially children and disabled. After a few tries, it should be easier and you should be on your way to become a ‘sweet’ person.

I am a sweet man who is full of love and pleasure…

I have learned this and apply it in my life. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe “Knowing is not enough; we must apply.” 

 Make a difference in other’s lives by practicing little acts of kindness. Start by smiling often. Frown and you frown alone, but smile and the whole world smiles with you. Smiling is infectious; you can catch it like the flu. Someone smiled at me today, and I started smiling too.

I used to know one man he said to me, hey bro, I love and like you, and then I never I see him say hi or ask me how are you? you know what, “The language of friendship is not words but meanings.” Right now I don’t see my online friends who used to comment with me a few year ago. “Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart♥”

If a person is really a beautiful, loving, and caring person inside and does their best to take care of themselves, they will be loved by others. It was as simple as that. Let your personality shine, wins everybody’s heart. And Your generosity really stands out! 🙂 I hope you guys read this and apply it! 🙂

Somaly Mam is a very positive inspirational Cambodian woman.

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 8:22 pm

I find her life story so touching and inspiring and felt it was worthy to add to this page.

In this photo: Activist Somaly Mam attends the US Stop Sex Trafficking Of Children & Young People Campaign kick off event in New York City.

Somaly Mam is a very positive inspirational Cambodian woman.

In 2009, she was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people.

I am deeply proud of her work. Her life story is so touching! Why do so many bad things happen to good people? I am so sick and tired of this world’s injustices. I feel so bad for her. No one deserves this. She’s a strong woman, and all the best to her and her family.

In Laurie Holden’s words “Somaly is a modern day heroine who has turned her own horror story of victimization into one that is both profound and inspirational. She fearlessly challenges the system, raiding brothels and rescuing thousands of young women and children from evil sexual predators”

Activist – Somaly Mam
Somaly Mam named one of top 100 women: activists and campaigners on Guardian News and Media.

Growing up in extreme poverty under the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, Mam was sold into sexual slavery when she was 12, eventually ending up in a Phnom Penh brothel where she endured unimaginable daily torture and rape. After being made to watch as another girl, her best friend, was murdered, Mam escaped and was helped out of Cambodia by a French aid worker.

Instead of trying to rebuild her life in France, where she married, Mam returned to Cambodia to help girls who hadn’t been so lucky. In 1996, she set up her organisation Afesip (Action for Women in Distressing Situations), to rescue girls and women from brothels and support their recovery. She has already helped more than 4,000 women and children, some as young as five, escape sexual slavery in south-east Asia and in 2007 set up the Somaly Mam Foundation, to raise awareness, campaign for change and fund projects to rescue and rehabilitate women and children sold into slavery.

Mam’s work has come at a terrible personal cost. Her life has been threatened by pimps and brothel owners, and in 2006, her then 14-year-old daughter was kidnapped and raped by three men, as retaliation for the work her mother does. In an interview in 2005 , Mam admitted to periods of desperation, including more than one suicide attempt. But in more recent years, asked why she continues to fight, she has always responded, “I don’t want to go without leaving a trace.”

Anger Management

Writing is important tool to use to enhance my self esteem.

I’m really obsessed with writing! 🙂 Even I was on holiday I still wanted to write for my blog. Usually I don’t write when I am on holiday. But that day I wanted to publish some topics. But I still could not make it because the Internet did not work, I tried many times. I follow this quote “Don’t Put Off Until Tomorrow What You Can Do Today” But I thought these topics can wait, so I just wrote some draft of something I came up with. I wrote something that I wanted to include in my blog in the yellow book. 03.04.2011

Angry & Miserable – Don’t Let It Be You !

The term anger management commonly refers to a system of psychological therapeutic techniques and exercises by which someone with excessive or uncontrollable anger & aggression can control or reduce the triggers, degrees, and effects of an angered emotional state.

One strategy for controlling anger is finding agreement with another person rather than conflict. The use of deep breathing and meditation can be used as a means of relaxation. Other interventions include learning empathy, stress management skills, forgiveness, changing how you speak about yourself or others and improving optimism. Other approaches emphasize experiential exercises that enable changes in attitude reducing the tendency toward anger. As the issue of anger varies from person to person, solutions need to respect and build upon each individual’s life experience.

You want brutality? I’ll show you brutality! hehehe just kidding, but seriously that was me before. When I hang out, I don’t want any trouble, but if  I have to, I will. As we get older, things seem less important.

I don’t hold a grudge against anyone. If I do, I do it in good way “the best revenge is success.” I live happier and more meaningful life than that people.
Who can tell me one benefit of the Anger? “Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
Confucius

I think our angry behavior is like animal’s weapon to protect their self.

Anger is a natural human emotion and is nature’s way of empowering us to prevent our perception of an attack or threat to our well being. The problem is not anger, the problem is the mismanagement of anger. Mismanaged anger and rage is the major cause of conflict in our personal and professional relationships.

Domestic abuse, road rage, workplace violence, divorce, and addiction are just a few examples of what happens when anger is mismanaged.

You have no idea what I am capable of! You know who you’re dealing with. About to let you know. Heheeheehee 🙂 just kidding. I just act tough and that’s how I got through everything 🙂

I think I’m a nice guy. But I have a bad side, everybody does. Do not bring out my bad side. Do you understand what I am saying?

Before, my personality was like a mirror, whatever you did in front of it, you would see it reflected back at you. Because I have learned two phrases, my personality has changed from being a person that would be good to people who were good to him and bad to people that were bad, to a person that respects others and treat others as he would like to be treated. The two phrases is “treat everyone with politeness even those who are rude to you, not because they are not nice but because you are nice” If we do the same thing as rude people we are not different then them. And “If you can control one moment of anger, you can escape hundred days of sorrow”

Every mistakes made by one wrong decision. So make the right choice. 🙂

“While seeking revenge, dig two graves – one for yourself.”

Don’t let your today’s decision become your tomorrow’s regret!

Be patient. Because one moment of impatience can ruin a whole life.

I think I am more kind and easy-going then normal people but if you bring out the very worst in me, you will see one of the craziest men you’ve ever met. It rarely happens. My bad temper is probably much worse than some people’s bad temper. What is wrong with me? This time I’m serious. The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. Don’t get me wrong, I had been raised on a philosophy of non-violence. I don’t know how some people were raised, but my family never used physical force.

Some of the most unpleasant and difficult people I have been around spit on my life and I wanted to kick their ass. But I always have utmost patience, but it is like a time bomb ticking, wait to explode. And it is kind of a war inside my head. When someone say something in order to hurt my feelings I know how to play along and they will get what they deserve. What you want to do with me is what I want. If they beat me first I will beat them up. This is Not a Threat, It’s a Promise.You want some come and get some, but be careful what you wish for!!! it never happened because I am very easy-going and rarely spit on someone’s life first. Sometimes I can hurt someone, unintentionally. I am sorry about that! 🙂

I’m making myself sound bad, this is just one part of me, to know who I really am click here, https://dydara.wordpress.com/about

That is why I always keep these good sayings in my mind.

“I don’t want to cause my parents any problems.”

When I am angry with someone, I think of his or her good things that they did for me, or their good deeds rather than their bad deeds. These things make my anger disappear. Or I don’t like feeling angry, when I have that, I’ll feel unhappy. 🙂

I can find positive ways to relieve stress.
I have the courage to walk away from unnecessary conflict. Sometimes there is no need to prove you are a tough or brave person. There is always time for that. :
I like the way I am able to handle my anger. 🙂

If we keep these good sayings in our minds, we shall almost never get into trouble. In fact, that sayings, if followed, will bring us countless friends and constant happiness. But the very instant we break the law, we shall get into endless trouble.

All these golden words are  like my self-control. Let good saying, be our guide. it works wonders for me, I hope it helps you like it has helped me. 😉

self-control = ability to control one’s behavior and not act emotionally, command over one’s actions and feelings. Ex: Although angry she kept her self-control.

Before, I was a dare-devil when I got drunk and sad, I drove very fast, It can get me killed and others too, without realizing the value of life. That was the stupidest thing I did. ហេងដែរឆ្លងផុត!!! Now, no more. One life is connected to many hearts. When you have a problem or lose your life, it can damage the heart of your friends, loved one, relatives and especially your parents.
we need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be. Now I become a cautious man!

I am moody, messy, naughty, stubborn, weird, annoying,… whatever that is imperfect can describe me, 😦 but I know how to behave 🙂

not happyI don’t like feeling angry, being envious or hold a grudge against anyone! When I have that, I’ll feel unhappy. I always make my feeling as clear as water. It’s not in my character to be jealous. But sometimes, I need to teach someone a lesson for those who spit on my life! Positive thinking and forgiveness are the most important ingredient in the formula of happiness.

I’m looking forward to the future with a smile. I want you to be as happy as I am.

Forgive, it’s important. Your ability to forgive is gonna determine the quality of
the rest of your life more than anything else. The more mercy you have, the less hatred you have.

When you’ve done something wrong you can forgive yourself, why you can’t forgive others?

You will never truly be free unless you freely forgive. Hate is
like a chain around your neck that leads you to places you don’t wanna go.
It’ll lead you into darkness and desolation. You become a slave
to that hatred, and it’ll only lead to your own destruction.
You must break free.

Mahatma Gandhi “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

Oh, boy. I’m real scared. Bring it on. Be careful what you wish for!!!

When anger is mismanaged, the results can be catastrophic in both terms of dollars and the waste of human potential.

Some Psychologists recommend a balanced approach to anger, which both controls the emotion and allows the emotion to express itself in a healthy way. Some descriptions of actions of anger management are:

  • Direct This would include making behavior visible and making communication clear. The end result is to not become resentful, but rather, be honest about the feeling of anger and what is causing it.
  • Honorable This includes identifying the moral basis for the anger, and being willing to dialog around the reason for the anger. In short, this includes taking responsibility for actions.
  • Focused This means staying with the issue of concern, and not bringing up irrelevant material.
  • Courageous This implies careful and thoughtful self-examination. Additionally, this means being willing to admit when one is wrong or when a reaction is inappropriate.
  • Humility This means seeking the truth instead of merely being defensive, and self-justifying.
  • Forgiveness This means acknowledging the wrong in someone else’s behavior or words and then letting go of bitterness and resentment associated with that wrong.
  • Listen This means hearing the other person out, asking questions around their feelings and their reasons for their action.
  • Thankfulness This means finding elements related to the situation where one is genuinely appreciative and expressing that.

A common skill used in most anger management programs is learning assertive communication techniques. Assertive communication is the appropriate use of expressing feelings and needs without offending or taking away the rights of others. It is typically started with the use of “I” statements followed by a need statement. For example, “I feel upset when you don’t take my feelings into consideration when you talk about your past relationships. I hope you can be more thoughtful and know what you should and should not say the next time.”

Another approach is to enable a person to reduce his or her tendency to become angry. Experiential workshops such as those provided by the Alternatives to Violence Project can bring about changes in attitude and improve abilities to communicate and relate to others.

With regard to interpersonal anger, Dr. Eva L. Feindler recommends that people try, in the heat of an angry moment, to see if they can understand where the alleged perpetrator is coming from. Empathy is very difficult when one is angry but it can make all the difference in the world. Taking the other person’s point of view can be excruciating when in the throes of anger, but with practice it can become second nature. Of course, once the angry person is in conditions of considering the opposite position, then the anger based on righteous indignation tends to disappear.

Disadvantages of Gambling

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 12:23 am

Gambling is addictive and can potentially ruin you. A lot of people gamble for fun, entertainment and for intellectual pursuit. However, if you think that gambling is a road to riches or that it can dig you out of difficult financial situation then I strongly recommend that you stop immediately. You are not in control. Because of the way the gambling markets operate you are not likely to succeed. Unfortunately in my time I have witnessed many people who have gambled to escape a difficult situation only to fail and dig themselves in a much deeper hole. Find something you can earn money at and work hard at it. Do not leave your future in the lap of the gods especially if those gods are bookmakers.

Gambling is a mode of entertainment that makes use of money as a tool for betting. Though it provides fun and excitement, excessive gambling may become risky,

Addiction Profile

Gambling addiction is a severe trouble.  It is well know that men are more probable to become addicted than women, that the appeal of gambling is superior for low income people than those of above average income.

Obsessive gamblers will bet until nothing is left:  savings, family assets, and personal belongings whatever thing of value that may be pawned, sold or borrowed against.  They will have a loan from co workers,  family and friends, but will hardly ever admit it is for gambling.  They may take personal loans, write bad checks and in the end reach and pass the point of bankruptcy. In anxiety, obsessive gamblers may panic and time and again will turn to illegal activities to bear their addiction.

Harm to Families

Gamblers are to a great extent more likely to be violent with their spouses and maltreat their children.  Children of these gamblers in general do worse in school and have a suicide rate two times that of their classmates. The suicide rates for problem gamblers are considerably higher than it is for the common population. Every one out of five tries suicide, a higher rate than for alcoholism or drug addiction.

We need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be.

what’s done cannot be UNDONE.

Sometimes you don’t know what you are getting yourself into.

Taking good care of your life!

I just called to say...Take Care! 😀

I’m not sure what to say, but I want you to know I care.

You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough. Life is a great teacher! There’s a lot to live for in this life. Life is an ice cream, enjoy it before it  melts! Youth is a once in a lifetime gift. Make it memorable and meaningful. I don’t want to miss anything good in my youth.

When I hurt myself from drinking too much alcohol, I realized that I didn’t know how to take care myself. And then I came up with the ideas to write about taking care of life.

The thing I♥love♥about writing a blog is that it allows me to talk to many people I will never personally meet.
I had a passion to add value to what people have taught me and energized me to write. I am not trying to be pathetic here. I’m rather fond of writing. I actually regard it as fun. I feel awesome when I am writing something from my  experiences. I’ve made a lot mistakes in my life but I’ve learned from them, lesson learned. There’s more to learn. Don’t copy my bad actions. what’s done cannot be UNDONE.

My closest friend's family. My SBFF= Super Best Friend Forever. 18.03.2011

My easy-going nature accepts more people into my life, but I choose to hang out with easy-going and understanding people only. Some friends are not easy to be their friends and some people are bad for my life! I don’t belong to difficult people world, and they don’t belong to mine.

Two people hang out together, the good person and the bad person. If the good person has more influence, the bad person will become the good person, if not, the good person will become the bad person. Some people are bad for your life! Sometimes you don’t know what you are getting yourself into.

I always say the words take care of yourself to my friends. I just realized that words mean be careful, don’t get into trouble, take good care of myself. It basically means to eat healthy, and live healthily so I don’ t get sick from neglecting my needs or health. And also the obvious things like not to do anything potentially dangerous. I used to drink alcohol a lot and I could not sleep at regular time and I thought I am a man, it was ok. Right now I know it is not about proving myself a man, it is about taking good care of myself. If I am not taking care of my health, I will hurt myself. From now on I will take good care of myself.

Today I’ve learned a very important lesson. Someone told me that “One woman is dead because of heart attack and she was too tired from travel without having asleep. She was a bit overweight. Who knows what we called khol kor in English? I was so sorry to hear that. This made me think I should relax when I am tired. 31.12.2011

I start to love my health! 🙂 Before, I watched 3 movies a day but now only one movie. No need to
rush! Movies can wait me. It is bad for my eyes when I watch too much. When I was younger, I was wild and extreme. I could drink one liter of whiskey in a few hours. I could talk on the phone for 8 hours per day for a few months (This could damage my brain). I didn’t fall asleep for a few days. I needed to test myself, mentally and physically! 🙂 What I did, was not the quality of life. Some people that I hang out with, they are also extreme! 🙂

 Too much of something is bad. Hence, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Like most things, moderation is the key. Finding the balance is very important for me. I must bear this in mind at all times because I have an addictive personality.

I★♥love to drink alcohol on special occasions. But I'm not an Alcoholic! I know drinking alcohol is self-destruction. But I know my limits.

Now I don’t want to compete in drinking battle. I will lose for sure, but I win for my health. 🙂

Learn how to do for others more than you do for yourself. With that said; but, if you didn’t know, or didn’t care about doing something special for yourself once in a while, you then wouldn’t know how to, or what to do for others, either. 🙂

 My brother called me ”The Carabao” អ្នកតស៊ូដ៏យ៉ាប់យឿន( that means I am tough because sometimes I had party until morning and I was able to go to school or sometimes without sleep I still can drive to other cities!

Before, I was a dare-devil when I got drunk and sad, I drove very fast, it could get me killed and others too, without realizing the value of life. That was the stupidest thing I did. ហេងដែរឆ្លងផុត!!! Now, no more. One life is connected to many hearts. When you have a problem or lose your life, it can damage the heart of your friends, loved one, relatives and especially your parents.
we need to consider our actions and what the consequences will be.

Taking good care of your life, my friends! 🙂

If it RAINS, remain indoors during first 24 hours

Filed under: Interesting and Useful Topics — dydara @ 2:15 pm

I read this useful information and felt it was worthy to add to this page.

Statement from WHO concerning rumours of radiation spread from Japanese nuclear facilities

 

Rumours have been circulating by text messaging and other means of a radiation cloud spreading across Asia and beyond from the damaged nuclear facilities in Japan.

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) would like to assure governments and members of the public that there is no evidence at this time of any significant international spread from the nuclear site.

 

Governments and members of the public are encouraged to take steps to halt these rumours, which are harmful to public morale.


Someone wrote: The news about the rain is spam. I think we can believe in the news, we have nothing to lose! 😀
