Quote by President Theodore Roosevelt using the boxing analogy
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again;who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement;and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.
Sooo…. Which is you? 🙂
My Stiff Shoulders are back…. Again….
Sigh… Anyone knows any good acupressure massage place I can go to? Sigh…
Busy days are coming soon…. Yet so many things are still so cocked up. People cant seem to have the initiative.. Im so tired… No time to take leave… Schedule is all packed. Even if Im sick, I doubt I can go on MC… No one to cover what Im doing at all. But… Who would bother.. Sigh..
Sometimes I wonder… Do people really see when we are working so hard? Nooo… All are blind… Humans are a selfish lot…

“This is My Now”
Elliott Yamin (Past Season Contestant)
Your soul is bound to the Burning Rose: The Rapture.
“I go where my heart beckons me, and I go with my head high. But sometimes, I get a need until I bleed so my heart swims above my head.”
The Burning Rose is associated with passion, intensity, and desire. It is governed by the god Eros and its sign is The Flame, or Physical Love.
As a Burning Rose, you can get lost in the moment if you let yourself. You are a very physical person, be it in relationships, work, or play. You may be driven by your hormones sometimes, but you know it’s because you have to follow your instinct.

Using how you “see” colors and understanding more about yourself…
At this particular time, you are feeling that you are or were unjustly and undeservedly treated and/or betrayed in your hopes and dreams. You feel that everything is against you. But look on the bright side for you are, whether you believe it or not, a survivor.
You are a leader and possibly at this tine in a position of authority, but you are experiencing problems. You are not quite sure how to handle the present situation.
You are a demanding egocentric and therefore quick to take offence. This attitude makes people feel somewhat inadequate when in your company and so it is no wonder that at times you feel alone and unwanted.
You are pretending that the situation around you doesn’t matter, but the effort of trying to conceal your emotions and anxieties is resulting in untold stress. The existing situation is disagreeable. You feel unwanted and lonely and you would really like to associate with someone whose ideals are as high as your own. You want to be above the standard of mediocrity and this need to be needed and that need to need has almost become an obsession. You are trying to magnify the need into a compelling urge. You would really like to tell the world how great you are but no, you are holding back because you feel that your peers may treat you with contempt. This is a great pity because you have in fact a unique quality of character, but the continual restraint that you impose on yourself makes you suppress this need for others and you pretend you don’t really care. You treat those who criticise you with contempt. However, to be honest, beneath this assumption of indifference you really long for the approval and esteem of others.
It is strange that the anxiety that you are experiencing at this time is of your own making simply because of your desire to be respected by your fellow man and with those whom you work with. You are not satisfied. The normal congenial ‘you’ is becoming quite introverted. This is becoming increasingly more obvious because you seem to shy away from participating in everyday activities. You are refusing to allow yourself to become involved or to participate with others and it is the reluctance to communicate that is the inherent cause of your problems.
