“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

It is so very true. One quote that applies to all, the old and young. How many times have we let something slip at the heat of the moment that hurt another person, only to regret it later? Is it worth that moment of verbal victory, especially when it comes to those we love and care about? The same goes for good things as well. When is the last time you gave your loved ones a hug and tell them how much you love them? Don’t wait till tomorrow for it may never comes. To live in the moment is to let those around you know they’re loved. Do it now!

My affirmation for today, never go to sleep without letting those you love know that you care. I shall hold on to this as a reminder, always.

The ability to love, that’s the greatest thing of all.

    But sometimes it’s hard to forget what people did to you, especially if it hurts you. =/

    CC: It’s true, but isn’t it better to focus on love instead of hate? I understand it’s easier said than done though. 🙂


  2. SimpleAlex Says:

    …and sometimes, we just don’t appreciate or realize things until they are too late…

    CC: Let’s now wait till too late then. 🙂


  3. Che-Cheh Says:

    Even if we know we must do the right thing… yet we don’t do it.

    CC: It’s human nature isn’t it! 😉


  4. suituapui Says:

    Love your quotation. I also had something similar to your post; I think it’s called “If tomorrow never comes”. Can’t remember exactly! I get all confused by my post titles!!! LOL!!

    CC: Haha, by the rate you’re going, it’s no wonder you’re confused! 🙂


  5. shionge Says:

    This is so true cc, sometimes by showing little gestures also means alot to the other party 😉

    CC: Sometimes, a little gestures mean the whole word! 🙂

    I think it’s easier for me to forget a bad thing someone had done to me than to express love to my loved ones, esp my parents!

    I mean, I’m constantly reminded to say I love them and give them a hug etc, but I somehow find it so hard…esp my dad. Grrr, but I do love them!

    I’m in dilemma now (o.O)

    CC: To be able to forget is a gift too! Not many can do that. Hope you’ll get over that soon and be able to show your love. 🙂 All the best!


  7. miao Says:

    you are the one teach me show our love our care to those we love.
    I am using your way until today 🙂

    CC: Hugs 😀


  8. johnny ong Says:

    holds that belief also.

    CC: Good to know. 🙂

    “There is no remedy for love but to love more.”

    If the world was filled with so much love, it would indeed be a better place to live in.

    CC: Indeed! Wouldn’t that be wonderful! 🙂


  10. Jemima Says:

    I love your blog.

    I love your photos.

    I love you.

    CC: Thank you! And I love you to be here too! 😀


  11. iamthewitch Says:

    I have also told myself to always appreciate people around me and never take them for granted. Used to be a rather emotionless person myself, but now I’ve learnt to say I love you to the person I mean it to, everyday 🙂

    CC: Good for you! 🙂


  12. bidarlah Says:


    from one pic u can write (almost) an essay on LOVE.

    and they say…a picture says a thousand words. 😉

    indeed, all we need is AI.

    CC: AI makes the world goes around! 😉


  13. BaLQiZ Says:

    a small friendly/loving/caring gesture, goes a loooong way. I should know that. personal experienced thought me a lot

    CC: Yes it does! It could means the world to someone.


  14. eiling Says:

    Very often, the word “love” is taken for granted. Some may utter it often but means nothing but some may utter it once in a blue moon but really mean it. Let’s not take the word lightly but mean it everytime you say it.

    CC: I agree. When one says I love you, it should come from the heart. It should not be taken lightly.


  15. LOVELESS Says:


    CC: I hope you find whatever that’s in your heart. 🙂


  16. clement Says:

    i don think the ability to love is the greatest… i still think the ability to be loved is…

    CC: Well, each to their own. 🙂


  17. My Bug Life Says:

    The quote’s so true!

    CC: It’s one of my favourite quotes.


  18. M Says:

    So true and yet some people fail to see something as simple as this.

    CC: People just need to be reminded. 🙂


  19. happysurfer Says:

    Great quote. I like this one too, “Be Kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.”

    Have a nice day.

    CC: That’s one of my favourites too! Always keep that in mind. Sometimes something seemingly harmless can really push another person over the edge. You have a great day too!


  20. abeku Says:

    I think people nowadays a taking love for granted.

    CC: Well, don’t we all sometimes?!


  21. foongpc Says:

    Feelings, nothing more than feelings, trying to forget my feelings of love…

    That’s the Albert Morris song “Feelings” that came to mind when I saw your title of the same name. Gave me a nostalgic feeling to those olden days when I hear this song.

    Yes, agree with you. We must let those we love know that we love them and treasure every moment with them. Thanks for this reminder! : )

    CC: That song makes me feel nostalgic too!


  22. doreen Says:

    Well said. Always live your everyday as your last. I too sometimes take my love ones for granted unconsciously. Thanks for sharing and I will keep your words in mind.

    CC: You’re very welcome. 🙂


  23. Monica Says:

    I’m glad to say that, EVERYDAY mybf’ll hug me and tell me he loves me. (we’ve been together for almost 3 years) 😉

    CC: YOu’re one lucky lady. 🙂


  24. rimus Says:
