I know it’s been a while – a really, really long while so to say. But hey, I’m back and I wanted to share this beautiful quote from one of my favorite people. So, yeah – I hope you’d learn a thing or two from it. I know I did.
Have a blessed day, y’all.
“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up.
Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world.
As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything.
Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie?
So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”
Waves of black smoke wallowed into the room where I dwell in solitude. I hear your voice resembling the echoes of thundering cannons fired from a distance. I lay motionless on a bed of carefully crafted thorns, my mind wandering in the dark, revisiting the rustic cottage where I kept all my memories of you. I will always run back to you for comfort, for strength, for inspiration. You will forever be my muse.
I’m a runner, metaphorically speaking.
Whenever life gets hard, I run. I run as fast as I can without stopping for even a second to glance or look back. Instead of facing my problems head on, I run towards the opposite direction. I’ve always been like this. I’m afraid of uncertainty. I’m scared of losing. Failure has always been my greatest fear. I’ve had my fair share of disappointments and heartaches. I have learned the most important lessons in life the hard way. I’ve been to the darkest places where others dare not tread. I’ve been warned countless times but I never once listened to what others had to say. I’m too stubborn and selfish for that. I can never be persuaded. I have my principles in life and right or wrong – I will always, always stand my ground. No one gets to tell me what to do because this right here is my road, my life and I will walk or run at my own pace. These are my decisions and mine alone.
Yes, this is my life and no one gets to have a say – not even you.
She met him once somewhere but she couldn’t quite put the pieces together. Was it in the nearby coffee shop? Or the busy streets of oblivion? Or maybe she happened to have accidentally bumped into him in her dreams. All she knew was, she has seen that wickedly handsome and annoyingly arrogant face. She just couldn’t remember where. Maybe he still lingers in the dark recesses of her mind.
Maybe, just maybe.
A decade has passed and what’s left of the wounds are scars that no laser could ever vaporize. How could I forget you when you have meticulously imprinted your identity in my heart, every single detail finished to perfection. My love, your name I do not wish to utter but somehow, it stubbornly finds a way to linger in my head. Even in my dreams, I can hear its resonating echoes. I have painstakingly endured a decade of brokenness, a decade of cruel affliction. You have ruthlessly ruptured my heart. What’s left of me are broken fragments, stitched back together.
You left me with a mark, you left me with a scar that even time itself cannot erase.
God created you to be happy so go out there and live your life to the fullest. Be thankful that you are still breathing, it means you’ve got another day worth spending. Remember that you only have one life to live so don’t waste it. Do what makes you happy and enjoy every moment of it.
Make the most out of your life. Give a helping hand and feel good about it. Live your life to the fullest by cultivating your talent. Share it with others and feel the satisfaction it brings. You are a unique individual who deserves every single compliment and praise. Be happy and enjoy every single second of life.
Love with all your heart. Despite the hurt, there will always be good things in the end. Trust God and believe that everything happens for a reason. Pain is there for you to be strong. It is there to nurture you and turn you into a better person. Keep in mind that pain is transitory and it can be healed. Live your life to the fullest and forget all the hurt.
Don’t let regrets and fears keep you from living your life to the fullest. Things happen because they are meant to happen. At one point, that was what you wanted so forget the regrets and move on. Throw away your fears because they won’t do you any good. They will just stop you from doing something that you want. You only have one lifetime so make the most out of it.
Offer a prayer daily. Pray for yourself and pray for others as well. Live your life to the fullest by keeping your faith in Him. Because when all else fails, you know that He will not forsake you.
Let my cute little hedgie put a smile on your face as he teaches you how to have a good time.
God. I love Anne Murray to the bones! Nothing beats old school music. I swear to God, my taste in music is far different from today’s generation. Hahah. I guess I am an old soul. Ohh boy, where have all the good music gone?!
And yes, black and white photos are beautiful.
Here’s one of my all-time favorites. Enjoy!
There’s always that one “friend” who eventually transforms into a dreaded enemy and I’m not talking about mere “frenemies” — Oh no, this one’s much worse. This one shows inexcusable behavior and ingratitude.
It all begins with some silent treatment and as time passes by, that ex friend gets colder and before you know it, your friendship is over. Poof! Every good deed you’ve ever done, every memory you had with that person all goes down the drain.
It’s sad losing a friend, it’s even worse when that friend turns into a foe. Your well-kept secrets will suddenly fly out the window. If you’re unlucky, you’ll be lashed out with harsh words and heart-breaking sentiments.
When you look back and remember the good times, you’ll wonder how it got to this, and all you can do is give out a loud sigh and accept that it’s a part of life.
Losing a friend is tragic but you have to keep in mind that sometimes it’s for the best. In the end, you won’t have any other options but to accept things as they are and just leave it that way.
