My father was a man of principles. He brought us all in a disciplined way. So we too learnt to live with our own set of principles. Though they are flexible according to my way of life, I never forget to follow them. I teach my kid also good manners and disciplines right from his childhood. How about you? Do you have your own set of principles or do you live a carefree uncontrollable life?

I believe our own principle in life is the core of our being. It is the basis of us being human. For me without principle is a life with no value. I always teach these thing to my children: First and foremost is to respect all, it could be living or even just a simple tiniest non-living thing, because it's what God created for us so we have to respect them. Secondly,to be contented for God has given us, but we can strive for more with His guidance and will. And lastly to always be down-to-earth, nothing or nobody is above one another, God created us equal.

i always have this inclination to help anyone else, i am not so sure whether i got it from my dad (which i often saw him do such) or from my mom (which i have no chance to know her very well), even i have nothing to give or meager at hand but my heart would bleed seeing them or hearing them. another thing i always bear in mind is something like this, "if my happyness (the movie) doesn't depend on that person then who cares".. that probably hard to deal with or to follow.. lol
