Dream…

看到了一些文字:“如果做一件不计得失不问成败的事情你想做什么?比如开一家每天只给十位有缘的客人做甜品的甜点店,比如种一个小花圃每天送花给随意一个陌生人,比如去一个你一直就很想去的陌生的地方生活……你有一个什么样不切实际的小情怀?“

按自己喜欢的事情来看,我不切实解的小情怀叫做:

《犹记初心》
开放时间:每天 (10:00-22:00)
价格:免费,自带料理、奉献的心
欢迎再来:请联系店主安排周五时间

在一间小木屋里有咖啡香、古典音乐为背景、有空荡荡的画室。这个地方不会收钱,但是每一个到访的人必须带上自己做的一道料理(主食、饮料、甜点随你便)以及料理的食谱。你的每一道料理会让你得到一幅画,每一幅画的背后有一段激励人的文字;一幅画本身有另一幅跟它一模一样的画。

最后希望每一个呈现料理的人找到那位跟自己拥有同一幅画的人,一周后他们会一起返回店里烹饪他们各自的料理,与前来的小朋友和老人一起分享。

为什么我有这个梦想?
因为每一幅画跟料理的搭配,会根据两道料理是否互补而配搭。每一个星期的周五我们邀请小朋友和老人免费用餐,体验人的善良、美味料理、艺术和一颗奉献的心所带来的惊喜。

这个不需要别人的点评,也不需要认同 🙂

快乐起来

在你还没有遇到挫折的时候,请因为过得平淡而快乐起来。
在你回想起那天生气的时候,请因为自己反思了而快乐起来。
在你还没有遇到孤单的时候,请因为有人与你结伴而快乐起来。

你快乐吗?这个问题很深奥,快乐是什么?我不懂什么才叫做快乐,但是我知道自己想要追求着快乐。快乐对我来说是无时无刻都感到踏实,无时无刻都享受着自己周围带给我的惊喜,无时无刻都知道我在真心地体验这个世界。无可否认快乐在你最真诚的时候它来到了你的身边,即使那一刻是短暂的。

请逼着自己快乐,这听起来不自然但是做起来是另外一回事。。。因为

如果你对着镜子笑一百遍,总有一遍会是发自内心的。:)

emotions.情感之旅

complacency destroys. do you feel that way? i do. the world around us is changing, for better or worse, because i am part of that change i cannot judge.

and they always say drama reflects life and vice versa, but what if either one affects you so much that reel life becomes a real feeling too? perhaps that’s when we learn to not think too much about it. at least i have emotions and can be affected, but i’ve always wondered what it’s like to just not be yourself, yet it doesn’t affect your real life.. role playing.

today the emotions and thoughts are all jumbled up, too much on the mind too little effort to bother arranging them… and just a poem of sorts that i wrote, it’s in Chinese.

《心晴》

雨天 晴天,
风儿无处不在。
花儿你飘着时,
是否记得回家的路?

或许因为是花
所以你没有家?

晴天 我的家是你的家,
雨天 让你不再迷失
每一天 希望你过得温暖。

ps: always putting the nature element in them, and always hidden behind the words are some emotions that one is afraid to spell out clearly. may we all find warmth and happiness =)

what you want to.

Doing something simply because you want to.

“why are you doing it?”

“you are not adequate, do you realized that?”

“what is your rationale or reason for doing (something)?”

sometimes, there is no need to explain. no right or wrong. why are we adamant on  saying things like, “if you are not first, then you are second or third, or even last.”

why the need to fix numbers and ranks? isn’t it better to put these numbers aside and just enjoy what we want to do?

you can judge for that gives you the basis to react and socialize with others, but please minimize imposing yourself on others..

because, sometimes i do things simply because i want to and enjoy doing it.

What if you are lost?

Revelation: The positive feeling, really only takes some simple effort and consistency to achieve~

Million dollar question, right now: what if you are lost?

lost as in, conscious of not being what you used to be and not believing/practicing what you used to. it may not be a significant question to others, but i guess for yourself it is important. to me it affects your mood, then the way you think and finally your actions and how you behave as a person and towards others.

so it is an important question.

i am always asking myself, what can i do to help my lost self. it would be easy to maybe change and accept, but not necessarily happy; or one could think that it is not that difficult to find yourself again.

what got me thinking about this was one online news article that i saw about ways to be happy and something else.. i realised i have been practicing a few of those steps, but introspection tells me that i am not 100% fulfilled, perhaps it was at that point that i realised i am changing. then comes the myriad ways where we access information about the world and other people’s world and lives, admitting that i am disturbed by all these and could not help but make a comparison of what i have and does not have with the outside world.

and writing it down, gives me perspective that i am not contented. which was not the case in the past, and evidently i am not really please with that.

so i keep thinking what happens now that i know i am lost. do you ignore it and face it with condescension, allowing negativity to penetrate and grow, or do you find ways to improve your situation? one thing is for sure, by writing this down i am actually giving myself the courage to face it and no matter i succeed or not, i would have more or less made some progress.

like i always liked to do, i go on to find quotes from people that would remind and inspire me; teaching me to be contented and not needing to think of what others are thinking.

case in point, these are what i found:

“We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.” – Tony Robbins

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.” -Camille Pissarro

reading these, i always remembered something i used to say, “you can be happy, anything and everything you want to be”. i guess it is time to find myself again, and this time round perhaps: “we are too insignificant and probably self absorbed, hence we do not need to be too bothered by other people’s gaze” would help in picking myself up again.

lastly, i guess by acknowledging that i am lost i have demonstrated that i have that courage to face the “bad” and somehow that courage could lead me to a solution if i allow it to and yes, i shall choose to think it the positive way because that is something that i would not like it to change or disappear =)

hopefully, people who are as lost can find their way back, with their very own special methods.. and they will become whatever it means to be happy by their own definition.

my cousin’s tweet got me writing this post too, and he tweeted something like this: “Let’s reverse that thought and start thinking that to be successful, we must be happy first. Isn’t that much more positive and motivating?” -YH Chen.

ps: sometimes i should really put myself down and accept the fact that being younger, he would sometimes see the world with eyes that are not contaminated by a rat race environment =) and that in itself is something worthy to be mentioned, not being blurred by the rat race.

what’s left unsaid is what’s felt.

when you feel down, when you feel suffocated, you hide.

you hide from others, to take away their worries.

but, please love yourself and come out of your shell.

do everything to recover: to write, to sing, to dance, to act, to shout, to cry.

whatever it takes, hold on to that hope.

for, living each day and breathing in the air, you are blessed.

for, even the smell of coffee and a walk down the streets can make you smile… only if you look hard enough, and allow yourself to feel.

for, everything you have now is something you should be contented with.

simply because, outside your shell, you have people who wants to share your life.

so recover and find that hope again. for others and more importantly for yourself~

《无题》

纵使在人群里也会迷失方向或感到寂寞,那时候的自己 是否足够化解在喧哗中感到的不安呢?

为什么总是想在别人的影子中找到自己,却又非常渴望自己并不只是以影子的状态存在着。虽然了解了每一个人都是不一样的,自己都是人生的主角; 但是因为缺乏自信 所以认为自己其实并不优秀。要找到优秀的自己,似乎只能够从他人的成就中找到自己也相似的地方吗?

这么做到底是自欺欺人,还是给予自己肯定呢?最后 留下的是快乐 还是 流下沉默的眼泪,并在原地踏步着。

有时因为还不懂,所以造成了很多遗憾。懂了以后,是否能够释然 并且乐观地面对。
就像云朵一样,什么都不是的状态下找到了答案、找到了经验。

最后,请尽全力把它变为快乐的泉源,一空气的方式将这股力量传达给每一个没有自信的朋友吧~
