Why I called my blog "sunsetyears"

In life 'Finding contentment'

Sharing this saying:-

"When the sun rises, I go to work. When the sun goes down, I take my rest. I dig the well from which I drink. I farm the soil which yields my food. I share creation. Kings can do no more."

-- Chinese proverb

How do we get there with the complexities and pressures of our current lifestyles? Perhaps it’s a matter of becoming aware of what we truly have as opposed to what our egos believe we need. If we look closely, we may find that our ego ‘needs’ are just desires.

When you find yourself longing for something, stop and ask, "What is missing from my life? Is it a need? What are the essential qualities of what I seek? How can I experience that now?"

"If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot." -- John Bunyan

"Try to be like the turtle -- at ease in your own shell." -- Bill Copeland


Very true indeed in life one has to be contented in whatever situation one is in! The other satisfaction and comfort is God's peace! The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. —Psalm 23:1

Er....rrr... so my 'sunsetyears' sounds more meaningful than 'goldenyears' right! Someone commented that he is "Not too keen on communicating with “sunsetyears blogspot” sounds as though someone is coming to the end of “the journey”!! Is true right! "Life is a cycle", Anyway....!! (That's ME)... I am in to a “New Adventure”

Went for my advance b/day lunch with Serene and Kimsan at BRIO.
