Monday Vacation

Monday – First day of workweek… no work! 🙂

I do not have work for today. Before, I usually use my days off to date or just to go out of the house. Today is different. Although I went out early in the morning for an appointment with my doctor, I decided to spend the rest of the day in the house.

I was browsing through my files when I found my old project on the novel “Tuesdays with Morrie”. You could watch it by clicking the link below:

Tuesdays with Morrie is a novel that talks about life. Watching this video once again made me reflect about some important tenets of life:

  • Love is the only rational act.
  • At times when I think life is unfair, I cry… I rage… I mourn… and then, I detach.
  • I want you to remember me, and I want you to know my story.
  • When you know how to die, you know how to live.
  • We must love one another or die.
  • By allowing yourself to dive in these emotions, you’ll experience them fully and completely.
  • Aging is not just decay, it’s growth.
  • Money and power are not substitutes for tenderness.
  • Love is how you stay alive even after you are gone.
  • Marriage is a very important thing to do, and you’re missing a lot if you don’t try it.
  • All throughout our lives, we need others to survive.
  • Forgive yourself, then forgive others.
  • Death ends life, not a relationship.

Whenever I have the opportunity to stop and reflect, I often am reminded on how much I need to work on my character to become a better person.

This is how I spent my Monday vacation. 🙂

About Audrey

I am not a typical “girl-next-door”, But I am striving to be a woman of valor. I cannot turn the heads of many people, But I can touch their lives and still be humble. To please my Creator, that is my main goal, To let Him mold me, for me to fit in my role. My other wish is to have a pure soul, And to have a zealous heart like a burning coal. Strength and honor must be my clothing, Purity and honesty, for me is an important thing. To be a woman of principles, that’s what I’m preparing, To make God proud of me as I keep on dazzling. I may not be as perfect as what I want to be, A soldier in the battle that is what I can see. I’ll keep on fighting to solve life’s mystery, To win the battle is the best reward for me!
