BeFoRe..



Forwarded by my aunt, i pondered upon this wordings for days..trying to match it with my own characteristics..Heres what i think..


Before you speak, Listen..
Doesn't happen always..i love to listen..but i am so poor in saying out what i want..my communication skill sucks! i always believe that by listening to others, you are opening up yourself to others..it is a way let them know that you care..hoping that others will think the same with me..average marks for me here..


Before you write, Think..
I am a thinker..i always think and think and think..that is why my posts something delayed, my comments for other blogs delayed, i even took 3 weeks to finish off my 99 Facts! normally i take a while to ponder upon my reply even when i chat in MSN or YM :) i guess, i have a pass mark here..


Before you spend, Earn..
I fail miserably here..still a student, depending on my fathers' money..shame shame..it won't be long before i starting earning on my own, making up for what i had been missing all this while..

Before you critise, Wait..
Just as i think before i write, i do take a step back each time something occurs, think over it..sometimes things will resolve itself, or it may not be what it seems in the beginning..so, another pass mark for me here..


Before you pray, Forgive..
Forgiveness is divine..i believe in that..but i am human too..at times, i can't forgive one till time heals it..hmm..i score average with this..

Before you quit, Try..
Greater the risk, greater the return...always willing to take the risk (reasonable ones, of course)..never say no before trying..TRY, TRY and TRY..i pass with flying colors here, only with support from my loved ones :)

Organized Noise said...

I like this. Very deep. A lot of people need to follow these simple rules. I'll personally refer back to this post often.

Keshi said...

Very important stuff am000nie...important but no one really thinks abt it..so it's good u posted this.


Before you speak, Listen..
Ur communication skill sucks? aww..I dun think so...u say wut u want to say pretty good. I used to suck at listening and used to chatter too much lol...now I take time to listen b4 saying anything...it's very imp that u u'stand what the other person is trying to say.





Before you write, Think..
I know u think very well. My prob is thinking too much! I wanna get out of that habit. Besides I could be very hasty in thinking n it's not a good way to go abt it...



Before you spend, Earn..
We all r students at some stage n then progress to our financial independance am000nie so dun u worry :) Well u cant say I'm a hopeless spender but I spend alot...for me quality is imp than the price tag...n yes I earn b4 I spend :)



Before you critise, Wait..
Well yes u got to wait b4 u criticise but by waiting u could be losing the the right moment to say it...I say what I feel like straight away...depends on the situation. If ppl cant take criticism, too bad!



Before you pray, Forgive..
Yes forgiving is good for ur soul too...but forgetting is the hardest. And sometimes I cant even forgive myself so how can I forgive someone who did a real nasty thing to me?



Before you quit, Try..
Im not a quitter...I try till I achieve it...but if for some reason it seems beyond my control, I just go with it - thats not called quitting.

tulipspeaks said...

@ organized noise
thank you :) muuaxx and hugsss

@ k000kie
muuaxxxxxxx babyyy..good morning..

..u say wut u want to say pretty good.
*am000nie wink wink at k000kie

now I take time to listen b4 saying anything..
good progress..;)

My prob is thinking too much!
my sis always talk abt humans using only 10% of our brain..let me guess..you are using 20%?? hehehe

but u always come up with briliant ideas for your blog..wonderful!

Yes forgiving is good for ur soul too...but forgetting is the hardest.
Forgive, but never forget..learn from it..move on.. (something i learnt within this past one year)

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

but am000nie if u shouldn't 'forget', how can u move on?

Keshi.

tulipspeaks said...

moving on with the memories..

i know it sounds weird..but i am confused here, myself..

its like..i'm in a situation where i need to forgive, but can't let go of the memories, at the same time have to move on with my life..

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

yup got ya...but I think there's anever situation where we can forgive totally...we may forgive but since we r doomed by memory, it's hard to 'really' move on..

how was ur weekend am000nie? I told mum abt the snake in ur temple, and she was so interested....:)


Keshi.

tulipspeaks said...

True... I agree...

=The Verdict=

Here is the results of the poll related to this topic:

Which is your best skill?
I listen b4 speaking 23%
I think b4 writing 31%
I earn b4 spending 8%
I wait b4 critising 15%
I try b4 quitting 23%

so, the majority of you think before you guys write..that came no surprise as we all are bloggers..thinking comes naturally nah! :P
