hello, you beautiFul thing

October 19, 2015

writing comes easy and natural in two occasions: right before the second of deadline and when you are sad. some may agree and some may not, but to me it seems spot on.

so i haven’t updated this place for a while and i am thinking if it’s a good thing or not. i couldn’t compose because i am not in the state of melancholy, that’s what my mind wants me to believe. even if there are some recent events in my life that are journal-worthy, i let them pass my mind. i have trust issues with my memory so i won’t be surprised if i forget them one day. (though i won’t really be surprised because i wont know that i forgot them because i already forgot them at that time, right?)


i chanced upon this short article, “15 signs you are doing well in life even if you don’t think so” by sarita king, and i slightly  pondered about it. the eleventh sign says, your happiness is real. hmmn, at this time, i am 74 percent convinced that i am not doing well in my life. i got a job, but my heart, body, and mind  all agree that they don’t belong there. i’m in the age where i should have accomplished  something which my family and i should be proud of but i got none. yes, these are just two factors that pull me down whenever i reflect on what i have been doing in my life lately, but wait! at the back of these pitholes, there is a part in me which says, “hey, it’s not all about being successful in all aspects of your life at the same time.” then i think about how lucky i am to have a complete, happy healthy family, some true friends, and a loving and supportive man who never forgets to cheer me up whenever i miss home. then i tell myself, “that is real happiness, right?”

then i flash a smile -a genuine smile which not every human is fortunate to have.

with that being realized, can i claim that somehow i am doing something good in my life even if i don’t think so?

. . .

it has been weeks (or months?) that i am thinking of leaving my work, with or without a new one. being stuck in the four corners of an office for a whole day is not my thing. NOT at all! though the atmosphere in our office room could be a big factor of my animosity. whenever i’m in there, there’s never a day when i dont ‘t count the hours. they say that at some point, it is normal not to know what you want in life but at least you should know the things that you don’t like. i don’t like to be pinned in a quiet box (without any trace of music) where i can’t be who i really am and i do not want to be with people who don’t bring out the best in me. don’t be surprised if one day i’d be jobless again. perhaps that’s what i need, to be carefree and hopefully all the worlds will conspire and let me discern what my true purpose in this life is.

.  .

this weekend, i accompanied my sister to a baby store to have an exchange of item. at the counter, i saw these pretty little finger puppets. the moment my eyes saw them, my heart knew that i like them. i want them to be a part  of my life and now they are. they are six. the prince is shy, he does not want to be in the photo.

still thinking what names i should give them (:

it’s better late than never. i bought the latest album of jason mraz (uhm, that latest is last year) last monday and the playlist is never ending the whole week until now. i’ve always been a fan and will stay that way until my last breath. his music is one of the few things that remind me that  Life is Beautiful. i hope everybody knows him and his music. all the songs in his yes album are awesome, just like the rest of his songs. i will leave you with this one which is one of my favorites. it’s not the official video; i think they haven’t created one yet, but this one is cute. this is for you (:

irony of hAppiness

July 27, 2008

Whenever you feel happy, take hold of it with both hands and don’t dare let it slip away. Feel each nerve in your body that delivers that sense of happiness in your mind, and in your heart. Take each moment as if it will be the last happy moment of your life. Live each hour as if the next minutes will get you back to the sad reality. Live each second as if the next breath you will take will start the deep, hurting breaths again.

Being happy is perhaps in the state of mind of a person. You do not need things and you don’t need other people to be happy. It is true that you just have to search for that light feeling within yourself and let it flow throughout your system. Only you can make yourself happy. If the world outside is full of laughters but if you choose not to be affected, not even a single smile, then you’re overpowering happiness.

“don’t dare to let happiness slip away..only you can make yourself happy…”

Be happy. Stay happy. Choose to be happy.. even if you know deep inside you, you still don’t have the full happiness you’re longing for.


make it Real

June 21, 2008

You have no other choice than to accept reality. Yes, it may feel good living in lies and all the things that you want, but at the end of the day, still reality is there to stay. You can’t run from it, you can’t hide it. It hurts, it’s painful, but soon you will see the breathtaking side of the story. A new phase, a new world to conquer. This time, try to forget fantasies. Give your best shot and welcome reality with open arms. Learn from your mistakes. It’s not necessary to forget the past; leave the negative and hurtful things, reinvent the happy thoughts. Do all of these and see yourself undeniably happy.
