Love Actually.

Fine, I agree. I am a little too negative. Actually a little more than just a little. So let me put my pink sunglasses on and give it a try. Fingers crossed, here goes...

Let's us all take a break. A relaxing break from all of our world's problems. Everyone agrees; we are living on a polluted planet. A dark, mad and sad world. But let's halt. Let's catch some breath, and let's stop our self destructive negativity. Let's start looking at everything from the bright side. It's bad - but there is always some sunshine. That little sunshine, those happy sparks that we'll shine onto our world, might push aside some of the darkness, some of the pain. We all have enough trouble overcoming our own limitations without fretting over the fact that God didn't see it fit to distribute evenly the gift of intelligence. We all want to fix our world. Everyone wants to make it a safer, better and happier place. Good! Very good! But - we can't.

As the one who pleaded innocent says:

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer :
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change.

Instead of trying to fix them up, instead of us getting all worked up just because of them. Instead of us waisting our time with those fakers, bluffers and crooks. Let's just all forget about them. Forget about the whole bunch of them; they aren't worth it. We will live our lives - not theirs. Let's just all be happy. We live happy and honest lives. Our families and friends love us. We love others. Love is what we spread - on our lovely world. There are so many nice and lovely people around. All those kind Rabbi's who never give up on me. All the nice Rabbi's who actually care about me. Every holiday - those who give me their precious time. We all have nice parents who take care of us, who love us and cherish us. No matter how mean we where, no matter how much wrong we did - they still care for us. They still help us and give us, after so much pain that we gave them in return.

Kindness. There is so much kindness that surrounds us. We could ask favours from anyone. Whenever we need something there's always someone special there for us. Is it a pack of sugar, a couple of eggs or a shoulder to cry on - we are never alone. This world is actually pretty nice! Last week as I was coming back from town, I was sitting on the bus next to this young Yemenite kid with nice long curly peyes. He was busy munching from his small brown bag of peanuts. Without a word, he smilingly looks up and offers me some. Just look around, and see. Love, actually, is all around us.


  • It's all written using we, we and we - but I only meant me, myself and I.

    Lost - thanks for reminding me Jacko's song.

  • Two sides to every coin.

    Some days its flipped on the shiny side, others its the "wrong" way round.

  • I feel it in my fingers,
    I feel it in my toes,
    Love is all around me,
    And so the feeling grows,
    It's written on the wind,
    It's everywhere I go.

    So pleased you caught a glipse of it this time, now just don't let go!

  • Yingele!!

    That is one of my all-time favorite movies. I can never watch it enough.(Well, yeah, I actually can.)

    I think you are so right; you don't have to look to hard to realize that love actually is all around.


    You reminded me of the first scene where he keeps getting the words messed up. Did you see it?

  • I did see it, but I was thinking of the song. The last few words of the post just got me singing it.

    Seriously though Ying, the positive one is my attitude.

    "Life is very short and there's no time
    For fussing and fighting my friend"

    Pure genius from Paul and John.
