Weekly Greeting

Life Can Be Created, Fate Can Be Changed-- Shirley's 65th Friendly Greeting, Sun, Nov 26,2006

How are you? Did you have a good week? I do hope everything is well with you and had an easy weekend.

This week, except working on my daily jobs in the company, I read many things about the companies, that are listed in Globe 500, for preparing my researching report. So originally, I would like to write something about what I have learned from them, especially the No.1 in 2006 -- Exxon Mobile.

I changed my idea because of some questions from some friends -- why I did not talk anything about my "love life" --and I doubt whether it is true what I have done and written on my web site . So I would like to write something new according to something that has jumped into my mind: "Life Can Be Created, Fate Can Be Changed". The secret is to start to work from the least thing, to work on anything we are working continuously. When we have really improved ourselves as a tall phoenix tree, then the most beautiful phoenix bird will certainly fly to us... Love is same.

About 14 years ago, when I came back from the verge of death ( After a doctor had given me a wrong diagnosis that my health would be worse and worse and would not be recovered again, then I chose to finish my life and my happy marriage, there had not had a wedding yet. For I did not want to bring any trouble to the people who loved me and I loved them ), I just came to the totally new and strange city with one bachelor degree -- I could not find a job and I had to worry where I would live in the night time. After 14 years, when I am running in the golden sunshine with light steps and an optimistic psychology, every morning with the title -- vice general manager, assistant general manager and editor in chief, who has published 12 professional books and 4 translated books, many web sites and newspaper pages, with a doctoral degree, some awards by the city and the nation, who has been invited 17 times by the other companies with a higher salary and position… Just 4 years ago, when I started to learn music and art in my free time, both of my art and music teachers doubted whether I could keep it for 3 months, but now, I still go on singing and painting on every Saturday and Wednesday night. I have written 57 pieces of my own music and I have painted hundreds of pictures! 20 years ago, when I had my baby son, I could not imagine how I could raise him to grow up alone, but now, he has been an international student in a Western country for more than 4 years...

Everything is getting better and better, everything is sunny in my heart and in my life! Then where are they from? What is the secret to have all these things? My answer is: to live and work from every thing that we are doing with a healthy psychology, to pursue a great dream with a work down to earth day and day

So now, I do really "thank" the doctor, who had given me a wrong diagnosis. It is the death that I had in experience and that made me realize, that anything in the matter world is not important. What I should cherish is the life itself and I try to do my best to make it to be more meaningful, even though it is short...That is why I did everything that the company asked me to do and worked harder than the others. From 1992 to 2002 I worked every week more then 90 hours. I did want to make my life to be longer by working over time.

I am so lucky that my health has totally recovered and I have got so many things that I had not expected. I have a lovely son, a successful career, a comfortable life, a healthy body and a optimistic psychology...

Life can really be created and fate can really be changed. The key is to work down to earth on everything that we are working on, with a pure heart and keep it continuously…

What are your thoughts about life and fate? Do you agree with me?

I am just a learner on art, music, English and the work on the web site in my free time. Anyway I would really like to do a little bit things with what I have learned to make this little web site to beAn Electronic Bridge Of Culture Exchange, Friendship, and Language Learning. During the process to help the others and to improve myself.

I do appreciate your understanding, directions and supports. I do hope to get your great help continuously now and in the coming time...
