I wrote a little poem on my subway ride today. It’s about my attitude, my life and my rules!
Do your best,
Pursue your dream,
Have your voice,
Take care yourself,
Live with an open mind,
Do your best.
Its ok not to be on top, but
Its not ok to stop trying.
Pursue your dream.
Its ok to negotiate with the reality, but
Its not ok to just settle.
Have your voice.
Its ok to be quiet, but
Its not ok to stop expressing your thoughts and feelings.
Its ok to hide your weakness, but
Its not ok to mislead and blame your failure on others.
Take care yourself.
Its ok to sacrifice for others, but
Its not ok to lose and hurt yourself along the way.
Its ok to hibernate, but
Its not ok to ignore and hurt feelings of those around you.
Live with an open mind.
Its ok to be opinionated, but
Its not ok to stop listening and acknowledging differences.
Appreciate Now and Today,
Later and Tomorrow may never come.
It was early 2000 when I first created my own website and hosted it on *Geocities* — All hand coded htmls with gif thumbnails I manually created using Photoshop for the paintings that I scanned and uploaded. Woah, sounds so manual and time consuming! While I was cleaning up some files on my old mac, found these animated gif images I created. I think having a customized gif image banner for personal website was “cool” back then. 😉
