Later could be too late

Later; comes in various forms


“Hey, come have dinner together.”

“I will be there in a while, mom”

– how long did that a while took? An hour? 2 hours?

“Wayne, come try my new cake recipe”

“Wait! Can’t you see I’m busy?”

how busy are you that you can’t take that 5 minutes off

Such simple conversations could be a source remorse in years to come.


The love-hate relationship with “later” is to me, one that is built upon a sense of negligence or maybe even ignorance. We now live in a day and age where things are fast pace, we are constantly trying to juggle every single thing in life.

On top of that, DISTRACTIONS are everywhere, yes your phone that just vibrated is a main source. Another is this machine you’re staring at now. We are engrossed in our digital life, so much so that we forget how much it takes away time from our physical life.

At the end of the day, it is all a matter or priorities


24 hours a day | 7 days a week | 365 days a year

Ask yourself. When was the last time you spent quality time with your loved ones?

Later? How about now

Friend Ship: An Unsinkable Tale

“Friends are family that we choose to have”

Quite recently, I saw this quote on an Instagram post that got me thinking…


FRIENDSHIP

For the longest time I draw energy from being around my peers.

My closest friends share my highest and lowest point in life (whether they like it or not)

However, as we grew up,  things began to change.

WE start to have our having priorities.

Work, School, Girlfriend, Boyfriend, Money, (blah blah blah)


I have become that friend

Quite recently, I have been drawing myself away from my friends, in an attempt to have more alone time. 

Lazy; I am now too lazy to pick up my phone to call/text people ask them when they are free schedule myself such that our timings match. TOO MUCH WORK. I would much rather be in my couch and be on a movie marathon.

 

I miss them. I really do. But the lack of motivation to take the first step. (Haishhhhh)

 

I apologise to all my beloved friends whom I have been avoiding because I am too busy (oops)

 

I truly need a break from people. There is too much on my plate.

 

“True friendship is not defined by the the amount of time spent together but knowing that they will still be there for you whenever you need them.”

Thank you, Sunday

Hey there!

How are you enjoying your Sunday so far?

Mine has been fairly relaxing – Was able to wake up naturally without having to jump out of my bed at the sound of the alarm. ( The sound of the alarm is probably my 2nd least favourite sound, only behind that of a screeching sound zzzzzz)

Filled my tummy up with delicious breakfast and went off to have my 2nd round of snoozing.(The day can’t get any better than this!!!!)

You must be judging me now HUH!

HAHA you must be thinking that I am some lazy human being who just sits around and wait for time to pass!!!! If that is what you think I’m sorry to break the bubble for you!

I can finally find time to pay off my sleep debt! This has been a much needed rest amidst the hectic schedule I’ve had all week; the break today is what i really needed, A BREATHER…

As i am typing this, i am thinking about the amount of crazy things (GS!!!!kfdsjnbflhsbfhksbdfgkhfbjghbdsjhbhfgbhdbf)  that is going to kickstart the coming week and I am dreading it alr!!!! SOMEONE SAVE ME!

I would much rather be on a beach enjoying some ice cold beverage while feeling the breeze on my face OR sitting in a cafe enjoying a cup of hot latte as my friends and I talk about life and everything else under the Sun.

//Thankful//

I have only come to appreciate simple things in life, something as simple as having a warm shower or being in the company of my family, after going through the rough experience of hardship and struggle.

Why was I so ungrateful, I don’t know

At least I am THANKFUL for what I have now.

LIVE THE MOMENT, CEASE THE DAY

Thank you, Sunday

No Rain No Flower

“You would never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice”

//Pain//

They say with every step you take, you are one step closer to the end goal.

But that was definitely not what it felt like.

Every step felt like torture, my feet was in pain, sweat covered my face, my lungs burning, my shoulder felt like it was going to give up on me.

I tried to take my head off of all these. I told myself they were distractions.

Roadblocks attempting to prevent you from reaching what’s important.

 

//What kept me going//

I had something to prove.

A message to send, a statement to make.

I needed people to know that I CAN and I WILL complete what I have started.

The self doubt along the way was excruciating. It was what made things worse. Physical pain was nothing compared to the mental torment I had to go through.

 

//I did it//

I accomplished what people could not imagine.

I can’t say that people have belittled me.

The image that I have created for myself thus far has been so, it is not hard for people to think that I’m weak.

 

//However//

Was i really doing it to prove to others

Or was i trying to teach myself a lesson

Was the opinion of others really that important after all?

Or was it finally time i showed myself that I am capable of more

 

//From here on now//

Would this be a one off chapter of my story

or the turning point that I’ve been waiting to happen

 

We shall see…

Choice

Looking through the bus window

Admiring the greenery of the urban jungle that gives me hope and energy.

In reality all these are man-made, sculpted and planted by human hands.

Without human, they would not have grown the way they are.

Instead, they would have been everywhere, luscious greens in every corner of the city.

Just like your life, would under the expectations of others or live your own dream?

Its all your choice.

Restart

Waking up to a new year after an insane night of partying, staring at the phone screen trying to comprehend that its the start of a new year.

Jumping right out of the bed, feeling excited and motivated that you’re going to improve yourself this year. Taking out that notebook which you haven’t seen since the start of last year. Making impossible goals expecting yourself to accomplish by the end of the year has became a yearly routine.

Have you ever tried to slow down and maybe you try and make short term manageable objectives instead. This might sound cliche, but it is truly the journey which is more important than the final results.

Don’t try to come out with impossible plans which would get you exhausted before even getting started. Best way to improve one’s life is through making slight changes in the daily habits. Its the small and negligible things in life that matter.

Start now, start small. Restart.

Snooze

The digital creature cries out signalling the start of a new day.

With eye tightly shut, my hands searches for the creature, silencing it.

5 more minute I tell myself…

After what felt like an eternity, my conscious found its way back to its physical core.

Checking the time. It was the moment of truth, I can’t help but let out a sigh, “late again…”

It has now became a daily routine.

Rain

The breeze touches my face like a gentle kiss.

Every raindrop sounded like music to my ears, nothing in the world could be more soothing.

With a cup of warm tea in my hands, and a great company. All my worries and stress cease to exist.

If I could stop time, I would, at this moment.

Enjoy the simple pleasure in life.

What’s your simple pleasure in life?

Fade away

Every step you take forward seem to take you back 2 steps.

You can never move forward in life, the person has been long gone from your life but feeling is still lingering.

As much as you want to forget the person, it only remind you the happiness the two of you used to share.

Every simple gesture seems to be an action to rekindle is whatever is left of a heartbreak.

Do yourself a favor and step out of it.

Enjoy today’s sunshine, look out of your window, the world is so much bigger then what you can imagine.

You may not realise now, but it this is nothing but a phase.

Sooner or later, these sorrows would just slowly but surely fade away…
