“When you say ‘Yes’ to others,
make sure you are not
saying ‘No’ to yourself.”
― Paolo Coelho
Imagine we’re sailing happily together
out in the big blue sea
on a stolen sailboat from the yacht club.
We have to escape from the crazy life ashore.
No longer are we slaves to the technology tools
that are hijacking our minds.
Far away from traffic jams, mean bosses,
endless board meetings, and deadlines.
There’s absolute freedom in the open sea
where all our troubles are swept away
by strong winds and huge waves.
A place where we could hear our soul speaks to us
and set-sail our priorities in the right direction.
Time waits for no one and nothing stays forever.
What will remain is just the memories
of love and friendship from our
family and friends who have touched
our lives like the ocean waves.
Let the voice of the sea speak to us!
Let the sea set us free!
“If we tend to the things that are important in life, if we are right with those we love, and behave in line with our faith, our lives will not be cursed with the aching throb of unfulfilled business. Our words will always be sincere, our embraces will be tight. We will never wallow in the agony of ‘I could have, I should have’. We can sleep in a storm. And when it’s time, our goodbyes will be complete.”
― Mitch Albom
Interview with FM (FreeMice) Radio Station:
Q: Humans today are so addicted to social media particularly the FACEBook. What is your definition of FACEBook?
A: FACEBook is Find A Cat Emergency Book….hehe just kidding! The correct definition is Filling A Common Emptiness Book.
Q: Why do you say filling a common emptiness?
A: Yes, let’s call it the Emptiness Tank or short, E-Tank. FACEBook has become a filler for these humans.
Q: What kind of stuff do humans fill in their E-tanks?
A: Humans can be rather kooky. Based on my ‘catscan’ reading, humans who are addicted to FACEBook are usually the lonely and the bored ones. Below are a few cat-egories of the kind of stuff humans put into their E-tanks:
Cat. 01 : The Foodsie
This human will record and photograph every meal in fancy restaurants and ensure the photos are posted in real-time. Gee…I thought humans should say grace before meals. Guess I was wrong. This type of human is confused between FACEBook and FOODBook and they are commonly found in Asian countries.
Cat. 02: The Super chef
Cat. 03: The Flashy Human
“Well friends, look how successful, happy and purrrrrfect my life is.” My human refers to this type of human as the modest narcissist. Everything said and posted on FACEBook will always be I, Me and Myself.
Cat. 04: The Love Professor
Human who constantly professes love for spouse/partner on each other’s walls – “I’m so blessed to have the BEST and most caring husband in the world.” “My wife is so beautiful and she can cook too!” Seriously, do you need to plaster your relationship on the wall?
Cat. 05: The Moaner
The human who complains about everything. You’ll probably see a posting that goes like “Oh…I’m so sad. I woke up this morning and I saw a big pimple on my nose.” What a pathetic way to seek attention!
Q: So, I guess you are not a FACEBook fan?
A: Yeah, too many FACEBook users have become FACEBrags. It used to be fun just sharing and connecting with friends. My human is no longer an active user on FACEBook. Probably because she’s overwhelmed with the floods of information about anything and everything.
Q: There are many humans out there who still love FACEBook. Do you think humans will respond negatively to what you’ve said about FACEBook?
Q: What else do you want to say to humans about FACEBook?
A: Just remember these 5 things:
1. Not everything needs to be recorded and not everything needs to be photographed and posted on FACEBook or anywhere else.
2. Before you post anything, please ask yourself, is this interesting, informative or amusing?
3. Get rid of the fear of missing out.
4. The more FACEBook time, the less FACETime (real-life time) and it’s a reminder to step back and re-think your priorities.
