at ease.

The holidays have started about two weeks ago, and it still feels surreal. i do not like the state of being idle, i need to be constantly moving and doing something . thankfully i do have tasks to occupy me, and it’s often at odd timing that thoughts surface.

there so many things that we come across everyday, yet sometimes we still feel mediocre despite being masters of our own life (i mean you are living you own life right?). do you feel that way? i do.

of course they always say nobody is perfect, but why is it that some people often seem more perfect than others? is it not true that everyone wishes to be outstanding; yet not everyone can achieve that.

do you question? i find myself questioning more and more recently, questioning the world and questioning myself. what i’ve seen and experienced, and with introspection i was not touched by these experiences. fortunately, when one door closes  the other opens up. the same goes for these haphazard emotions.

i often find myself feeling more at ease and feeling peaceful after reading, and it was when i look back, i realized i was more emotional while experiencing stories. not my own story, but stories told by others.

does that spell out something? that i am not participating fully in my own life and experiences, or maybe when we look too far out we forget that what matters most is when we are touched by ourselves.

only when being at ease with yourself, can you then bring the same vibe to others.

and perhaps that is why i allow stories to overwhelm me so easily. they open up new worlds and emotions to me. i am actually glad that now when i read a book that touches me, i willingly and easily tear in public. it’s too tiring to contain what you truly felt, and i hope for everyone that we never have to hide ourselves simply because we are afraid of being judged.

ps: and sometimes i have so much to express that i don’t know where to begin, and many times it calls for pumping courage into myself.

Breathe

I came across this whole album by chance, only to know it was composed by an actress/director/artist/writer/singer.. a jack of all trades, need not be a master of anything; but she is pursuing what she wants to do.

i think that on its own is inspiring and praise worthy.

do we always have the courage to pursue what we want? or are we willing to be stifled doing what is expected of us? a new age album that i think is note worthy, and as we end the day maybe it’s time to do some introspection and breathe.

《秋感的夏天》

在天空飞翔的我,
在云朵中自在的我,
在异国翱翔的我;
请问 陆地是什么感觉?

无风的街道,
因为 夏日的太阳照着,
亮了。

亮起的是街道,
暗淡的是心情。
浮现,秋天的伤感。

陆地
等待了是
我赠给它 那秋感的夏天。

something that i want to pen down. maybe it’s not that sad but it’s still cathartic to put it down; albeit, not poetic.

ps: and yes i am back from my travels. missing it already…
