No profession. Just passion.

Kills me to see how everyone has it going while I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going for.

Commitment.

The word itself is already frightening, but I see it as a challenge. I came to realize that every successful goal must consist of commitment, devotion, and sacrifices.

I’m challenging myself physically and emotionally. This will be a roller coaster ride but positive thinking leads to positive doing.

One of my major resolution this year is : to be grateful.

Today has been one of the greatest time to be grateful. The beginning of a new year and the beginning of memories.

I woke up, grateful, to no back aches because of my new bed… to no hang overs and to have a decent amount of sleep. Grateful to help around the house and re-arrange my brothers desperate-for-a-makeover room. Very thankful to spend time with my boyfriend and actually get stuff done. But one of the most precious thing that I’m thankful for is family. To see my dad  happy that we’re spending the holidays with his family was priceless. To reunite even if it was a short amount of time. Today, I saw a blessing and an answered prayer.

One of the biggest misfortune a man forgets to acknowledge is the small things in life. We often bypass the idea that the small miracles are actually the ones that matter the most. To me anyways.

Great way to start the year! Positive thinking leads to positive doing.

Newsflash

They say not to wander in the past. Plan for the future. And live for today.

But is there such thing as getting too caught up with life?

Alone, I know myself. I understand better. I believe stronger. I set out my priorities smarter.

Then I get taken into some unknown blackhole. While everything else gets tossed around.

Ha! Life just can’t keep up with me.

Like some mental joke. It corrupts the brain, but the heart is stronger.

Untitled Love

Love.

A topic that every single soul has experienced.

A word that every single soul has pronounced.

A feeling that every single soul has expressed.

But a privilege that is often abused.

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy

—Max Ehrmann

Illusions of Love

Quote after quote, poem after poem

Love never seem to be defined

All that really matter was because you were in love

After all that times that one tried

The heart and brain, always in contradiction

Seeking for the kind of love, full of care and passion

While passing by what lies under

Full of mislead illusions

That is the best part… of being in love

there are no answers, just questions

Curiosity that makes one happy

no matter what situation

A fool, a risk taker, or hopeful dreamer

there is only one road for each trooper

Just a destination

Full of mislead illusion

Composed Words

“Words are spoken but often misunderstood

So actions fire up as tension lingers towards a brick wall;it sheds a tear maybe even a bawl

It seeks for a reason but finds nothing, can’t figure out what it is doing wrong.

They say they do but never acts the same way

Hypocrites walks these hot balance beamdancing their way hoping to be ignored. 

A chance so smart but often taken for granted… and so are the words that spoken but still often unwanted

I awake into a dream

I awake into a dream, create a picture to conceal the unwanted,

then consume a poison to retain my health.

As I linger towards my destination, I realize my confusing questions,

standing on the cold chairs puzzled between left and right.

A passionate love turned to sex, 

fulfilled emptiness, it’s just science.

I walked the run and hoped at the end.

and I awake into a dream.

Lost Soul; Lost Relationships

A girl with a happy life but lost soul. Deceiving the world with her smile

Even she was fooled to the reality of destiny. Until she looked back and realized what she always had

Relationships were underestimated; went unnoticed, unappreciated, even forgotten.

Her lost soul … is still lost.

But she begins to appreciate her underlying foundation

The people who found the girls lost soul.
