Why I want to be a Writer

Featured

Hey all! Friends, Acquaintances & Strangers

I am shifting the big bulk of my blogs on this newly setup blogging page. This is to have more protection over my intellectual assets.

Yes! If you have seen my latest update on facebook, I am currently planning to be PROFESSIONAL WRITER.

I have always been contemplating about it, as I love to read a lot. Writing gives me a lot of fun and joy! I graduated from media studies, and also thought that I should not abandon my ‘talent’ in that sense.

Really appreciate you guys & hope to have your support.

Thank you so much. Have a great day!

God Bless,
Ashley

“DREAM HOME” 🏠

Read this today & thought what a nice fantasy!

“I would have this fantasy, and it was very real to me, it kept me calm. I dreamed of not being cold, of having clean sheets, clean towels, a toilet that worked, and a sunny kitchen. I allowed myself into heaven this way…” extracted from book, My Name is Lucy Barton

WORSHIP

Sometimes its really nothing I can do.. strangely “A Pure Heart” suddenly keep repeating to me the whole day yesterday… I have nowhere to turn but to this song already. I felt inward cries oozing out.

Honestly I haven’t been in church for a long while and I am pleasantly surprise by this occurrence

☀️ Sunshine

A lot of cobwebs in your head
You’re getting rusty, so you said
You’re feeling bad, and everything looks gray, and sad
You’re getting worried, yes indeed
I know exactly what you need:
A little sunshine will make you feel okay!
Give the blues a chase
Find a sunny place
Go and paint your face
With sunshine!
Pay your doctor bills
Throw away his pills
You can cure your ills
With sunshine!
Why don’t you take your teardrops one by one
Before it gets too late
Hang them up out in the sun
And they’ll evaporate!
When the troubles start
Pounding at your heart
Trouble will depart
With sunshine

~ Irvin Berlin

During this tough Convid19 period, I faced some challenges big and small. My holiday trip to Japan was cancelled and still awaiting for ticket refund after pleaing for 4months. I was worried, out of employment and had to go through some blood tests. Its also quite stressful to followup with the news daily. This song just resound with me so dearly, which is also my prayer at this juncture.

看哪,撒了一个撒种的播种者:播种的时候,有些人在路边摔倒了,空气中的飞鸟来了,吞噬了它。 有些人落在石头地上,那里没有多少地球; 它立刻就出现了,因为它没有地球的深度:但是当太阳升起时,它就被烧焦了; 因为它没有根,它就消失了。 有些落在荆棘丛中,荆棘长大,窒息而且没有结果。 而另一些则落在了良好的基础上,确实产生了崛起并增加的果实; 并带来了,大约三十,六十,一百。

~Find Joy in Life~

In sooth, I know and why I am so sad;
It wearies me; you say it wearies you;
But how I caught it, found it, or came by it,
What stuff ”tis made of, whereof it is born,
I am to learn;
And such a want-wit sadness makes of me,
That I ave much ado to know myself.
~ William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Bach Flower~Pine

I used Pine for the first time. I have tried Pine as one of the composite in other remedies before. Never felt it so effective before. I knew its a ‘bingo’ remedy as I could just cheer up and smile more easily. I was actually having a bad body ache and feverish. I did a quick self-test of my mood. There was absolutely joylessless, tiredness, poor appetite for food, and I kind of linked all these to a kind of blame I was infused because I couldn’t remember and learn fast at work. I only took one remedy -Pine. Immediately uplifted my acute pain. Happy is a person who took the right remedy.

An Inspiration to my GOAL in LIFE (so beautiful)

… and I think of each life as a flower, as common as a field of daisy, and as singular,

and each name a comfortable music in the mouth, tending, as all music does, toward silence,

and each body a lion of courage, and something precious to the earth.

When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. …

~ Mary Oliver (1935)

那些花儿 (those flowers) Chinese Poem for Chinese New Year

作词:朴树 红枫
作曲:朴树
编曲:张亚东

那片笑声让我想起我的那些花儿
在我生命每个角落静静为我开着
我曾以为我会永远守在她身旁
今天我们已经离去在人海茫茫
她们都老了吧
她们在哪里呀
我们就这样
各自奔天涯
啦………….
想她
啦………….
她还在开吗
啦………….
去呀
她们已经被风吹走
散落在天涯

有些故事还没讲完那就算了吧
那些心情在岁月中已经难辩真假
如今这里荒草从生没有了鲜花

好在曾经拥有你们的春秋和冬夏
她们都老了吧
她们在哪里呀
我们就这样
各自奔天涯
啦…………..
想她
啦…………..
她还在开吗
啦…………..
去呀
她们已经被风吹走
散落在天涯

她们已经被风吹走
散落在天涯
她们都老了吧
她们在哪里呀
我们就这样
各自奔天涯

Lyrics: Hackberry Hongfeng
Composer: Hackberry
Arranger: Zhang Yadong

The piece of laughter reminds me of my flowers
Quietly open for me in every corner of my life
I used to think that I would always be by her side
Today we have left vast expanse of people
They are all old
Where are they?
We are like that
Riding their own horizon
La………….
miss her
La………….
Is she still open?
La………….
Go!
They have been blown away by the wind
Scattered in the horizon

Some stories have not finished yet, forget it
Those feelings in the years have been hard to tell the truth
Today, there are no flowers in the weeds
Fortunately, once you owned your spring and summer and summer
They are all old
Where are they?
We are like that
Riding their own horizon
La…………..
miss her
La…………..
Is she still open?
La…………..
Go!
They have been blown away by the wind
Scattered in the horizon

They have been blown away by the wind
Scattered in the horizon
They are all old
Where are they?
We are like that
Riding their own horizon

Thanksgiving 2017

Its Thanksgiving!

Its been a tough one year. Counting my blessings. As I count, one of my greatest thanksgiving is having my right hand completely healed.

My right was injured and felt numbness throughout my right hand. It was so bad that it might need an operation. However I decided to give TCM a try. I wasn’t comfortable with the western’s intervention.

I met 2 very dedicated time Doctors. Once of them is really quite old (I think in his 70s). Every time when I enter the clinic, I felt peace in my heart. The Doctors did acupuncture on me. They were Super nice and caring. Towards the end of the sessions, I was so grateful with tears.

Yes. This is the greatest Thanksgiving I had this year. No amount of money can buy my hand. I am extremely grateful to the Doctors.

My Personality Type & Current Remedies

So after exploring so much about Bach Flower. I have made some conclusion for my own personal remedies which I find extremely powerful. I can be very down and out the previous day, and at my best capacity with the remedies the next!

So my current mixture is:

For Day Dosage:
1. Scleranthus (personality)
2. Clematis (personality)
3. Oak (personality)
4. Walnut (if neccessary due to environment)
2. & 3. most permanent

For Night Dosage:
1. Aspen (to help manage my fears)
2. White Chestnut (to help manage my mind)
3. Olive (very effective when I am mentally and physically tired at the end of the day)
2. & 3. Tend to be quite permanent

Mixture needs to be revised every 3 months ideally.
