learning is everyday…

you know how after letting loose what’s inside you, you could have mixed feelings? i.e. relief, joy or even guilt.

yes guilt. guilt that maybe all that was uncalled for, or there is a better way to handle it. there will always be an alternative.

anyways so i learnt something from a friend, “don’t be angry, the situation heats up when one is angry, then we become unreasonable too, so keep calm.”

so learning is an everyday thing.. and enough of “great” theories, a song that can really help you: pick yourself up and dust yourself off =)

Lyrics

You feel like a candle in a hurricane
Just like a picture with a broken frame
Alone and helpless
Like you’ve lost your fight
But you’ll be alright, you’ll be alright

[Chorus:]
Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you’re made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause its all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you’ve had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand, Then you stand
Life’s like a novel
With the end ripped out
The edge of a canyon
With only one way down
Take what you’re given before its gone
Start holding on, keep holding on

Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you’re made of
You might bend till you break
Cause it’s all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you’ve had enough
You get mad, you get strong
Wipe your hands, shake it off
Then you stand, then you stand

Everytime you get up
And get back in the race
One more small piece of you
Starts to fall into place
Oh

[Repeat Chorus]

ciao~

What Lies Beneath Running.

You know how there are moments where you regret what you’ve chosen? because it didn’t turn out as how you’ve expected it to be? i will whine here, despite really not having time; because i might just end up feeling better and not be caught in a web of negativity.

in any case, yea i’m experiencing that regret now. of course i know the right thing to do is to accept it, and make a better situation out of it. after all life isn’t a bed of roses and whoever said what we perceive to be will be the same as reality?

this is a lesson i must learn, a time i must be responsible for. because i chose it, i don’t give up. nevertheless i shall whine here and then move on.

yes we’re all busy. assignments, revision, mid-terms and commitments. why is it that some of us can commit and do our part, sacrificing our leisure time/ revision time etc. and then there are others who seem to be never in the situation? as if everything will turn out alright?

the only reason why things are alright is because other people are doing the work of another. it may be true to a large extend and it may not be true to a very minimal extent; but this is the feeling i get. and of course there’s whining. not that we cannot whine, but there are others who are also worried but they are not whining. why can’t we just let actions do the talking instead of just verbally expressing and then not do anything. maybe it’s time to try harder.

and having said that it might be harsh sounding, but recently something i read from Definitions really helps a lot in addressing such a situation.

“You have the prerogative to waste your own time, just do not impose on mine.” – Jeanette Aw.

well said. it is so true, why impose on others. even if you did at least do something to salvage the situation or try to overwrite the wrong stuff. fortunately i have decided to spare myself from that misery of seeing whining, somehow =)

was suppose to talk about how running gives me endorphin and let me have a clearer perspectives and stuff.. but i end up typing down all frustrations. at least i attempted to maintain my sanity and of course life goes on!

hang tough, prevail, don’t let yourself down.

okay whatever, i’m done ranting.

music. musings. muster.

music heals the soul. when you’re tired listen to music. i love Titanic. the movie is romantic, the plot is awesome. the history is something that is tragic, but Titanic’s maiden voyage is undeniably one that gives people hope.

i want to visit the Titanic exhibition at Art Science Museum. i want. i hope. i can?

musings. yes writing heals the soul. sometimes when you pen it down, the frustrations within disappears as we pen something down too. at least when i pen something down.

whirlwind week, month and the upcoming month (March) too.

i shall always remember, “When life throws us lemons, make lemonade.” “Because you chose to do it, you don’t give up.”

and so shall once again muster the courage to face everything, and stand tall and proud at the end; knowing i’ve carved out a path for myself.

tell yourself you can do it and somehow you will.

Definitions.

And here we go, I bought this book read it halfway decided I should only finish it after I’m done with my school work..

who would have thought, I popped home and finished it. yes, it is that good and worth it to read.

there’s a reason we like something/someone, out of respect/awe/ simply like.. Or there could be no reason at all, anyways I like the author as an artiste, as a person, as a friend if I have that honour? I guess I don’t have to spell out how and why, am not obliged to.

to people who doubt, pick it up. the moment you picked it up, you’re doing away with judging, do yourselves a favour 🙂

paradox of being invisible.

what if i’m invisible, will people still be able to find me?

i hope they will, if they try hard enough.

the paradox of being invisible…

i know i will get my life back after everything is over,
meanwhile geog on and hang tough.

PS: why do we feel apologetic when we are unable to relate? then again, maybe it’s not so much the relating but more of people needing a listening ear and just the presence.

Don’t Start.

I’ve always reminded myself, if you’re unsure of something don’t start.

if you’ve made a choice stick with it, because it’s your choice you shouldn’t abandon it.

hence up to this point, when i am still unsure and not confident of something, i don’t start. simply, i have no wish to hurt anyone and no wish to make it a bad experience. call me timid, i’m just playing safe. maybe all tauruses play safe?

and for everyone who tolerated and stood by me, thank you =)

PS: this is perhaps an overdue post, one typed out of a whim just to get away from work.

i think i just found my favourite all time song. maybe it ties in with what i said not starting something i’m not confident of?

yet actually i enjoy this song simply because of the emotions, how real Adele did it, with all honesty =) best song of 2011 i think, though we’re already in 2012…
