What if..

What if you lost someone. Someone whom guided you through life. Someone whom you’ve learned from and respect. What would you do?

Would you be lost? Loosing a teacher that taught you life. Guided you all the way. Been with you during your ups and downs. Always there to comfort you, support you. What if they’re not there anymore? Would you go all ’emo’ and give up life? Or.
Would you get stronger, knowing that they would want they best for you. They wouldn’t and didn’t give up on you, so you shouldn’t too.

Losing someone is part and parcel of life. How we react depends on how we see it. Just know that they are in a better place now. There, they can watch over us 24/7. You won’t always see them, or rather you can’t see them, but theyll always be with you. Always.

Getting over them doesn’t mean you forgot about them, it just means you’ve placed them deep down inside. In a place where they are always there. You remember the times spent with them. Memories. Recalling them. Loving them.

Don’t give up on life just because you lost someone dear. That someone still lives, inside. They want you to smile all the way. Every tear you shed, every laugh you give, every word you say, they know. Because they are with you all the way. 🙂

Give Thanks

You’ll never know what happens tomorrow. Who knows, maybe you’ll get hurt, get fired, get looked down, fall in love, meet a new friend, find your favourite book, or even eating your last meal. You’ll never know.

For all you know, having a meal, bathing, brushing your teeth, attending school/having a job. If you have these, you’re already better of than more than 1/4 of the world’s population.

We always complain about not having enough food, complaining about our parents, getting jealous of others having something you don’t. Typical right? Jealousy is part and parcel of life. Who doesn’t get jealous? But, have you thought about what you already have?

Having parents, both or one. Many people don’t appreciate them. They brought you up. They gave you food. They were your first teachers. They are your closest kin. They were your first playmate, friend. Don’t only appreciate them once they’re not here. Say it once, remember it always. Love your parents? Show them. Not everyone still has their parents with them. No matter how old you are, theres always time to say “I LOVE YOU“. Don’t have the guilt of later saying `I should have told them earlier…’. You’ll never know, you might see them today, and the next thing you know, they’re gone.

“Why can’t I look like her/him?”, “Why can’t I be born into a richer family?”, “I should lose weight, fit their expectations”…. Even if you never said it before, you can’t deny that you would have thought about it at least once before, such a comment. Right? As humans, we will never be satisfied. Once we achieve something, we would want more. Right? Sometimes it’s a good thing. Sometimes. But often because of these, we tend to neglect some things, important things, in our life. Don’t you all say YOLO? Then why would you want to waste your time to be “perfect” when you’re perfectly fine from the start? Because we only live once, that’s why we should live it to the fullest. Love yourself, this life. What you are now, is what you are. You can be what you want in your next life (heh..), you’ll be someone new then. So. Be yourself, don’t ve someone you’re not. 😀

As I said at the start, we’ll never know what will happen tomorrow. So treasure this day, live it as your last.

Why

Why…Is it so hard to give birth to a life, but so easy to take a life away?

Why… Is it so easy to smile in front of others but so hard to cry in front of them?

Why… Is it so easy to start a relationship but so hard to end it?

Why… Is it so easy to create a wound but so hard to mend it?

Why.. Is it so easy to say ‘I love you’ but so hard to really mean it?

Why… Is it so easy to hurt others but so hard to say ‘I’m sorry’?

Why?

Happiness

Happy. Everyone would be happy at least once in their lives. Happiest moments? Maybe getting married to their loves one? Seeing their children find love? Watching their kid playing? Or maybe simply being able to sleep through the whole morning and be awake cause you want to.

Well, happiness is when you are doing something you like. Being able to travel, or getting your dream job. Happiness can be simple, only if you imagine it well. Someone who only craves for riches and fortunes can only get artificial happiness. Those who are really happy, are those who lead a simple and fulfilling life. Doing what they like and whats best, what’s right.

Happiness is doing something that may benefit others instead of yourself. Love. Seeing someone you like loving someone else, is pain. But knowing that he/she is currently happy because they found their partner, one should be happy for them. Love may not be being with them physically, but supporting them emotionally.

Happiness is relieving those times where you live your life. Those times free of stress and burdens. The times where nothing seemed too much for you to handle.

Happiness is knowing your close ones are always by your side, and your always on theirs. No matter what hardships you may face, they still stick to your like caramel toffee, only leaving your once your flavoured the taste.

Happiness. Can be found with a single action, a smile, a greeting, care, love, joy, compassion. Spreading the joy out to others with a simple hug.

A hug. It can do amazing things. It makes us feel as if we know that there is someone always there for us.
A hug of happiness, knowing that they are celebrating for you, sharing the same happiness wiyh you.
A hug of sadness, knowing that they are there for you, comforting you whenever you need.
A hug of anger, knowing that somethings don’t go as well as planned, but they still care for you.
A hug of random, knowing that everyone needs love, at any point of the day.

Happiness, cue the smiles. 😀

Back in those days..

Do you remember back in those days, when you were still a child. That you cared nothing else but to play and have fun? You would hang out with anyone who would play with you. Talk to anyone when you’re bored. Speak up your mind and barely anyone gets mad at you? Well that was back when we’re young.

Now? Basically there’s more to it than to have fun. Most people would focus more on grades or popularity rather than play. Or maybe so. But well.. Now everything seems to matter. Who we talked to, what we do. It’s for the name, rather than the reason.

Back when we were a kid, dreaming seems so easy. We just played for fun, rather than focusing on making memories.

Now? We do everything for a purpose. Pride, fame, lies all exist now. To keep it, we risk everything.

Back when we’re a kid, there was no such thing as pride or lies. We laugh or cry as we want. We did stupied things. Laugh, cried, ran all we want, all for ourselves. Looking back now, those were probably the happiest times of our lives.

Now, we’re older. Then, we wished we could grow up faster. Now, I wish I can go back. Back to those days, where there is no stress.

But this is part and parcel of life. We grow up to be who we are. People don’t change, they just become more of who they really are. There is always this someone, or something that comes across in a point of your life. They/It brings you out of you. Gives you the confidence that you once lost.

Back then, confidence, is a bystatement. Whether you have it or not, there will still be people playing with you. Now, without confidence, you get played around instead.

Smile~

There’s always a reason to smile.
A smile lights up the world.
Remember the time,
where everything seems down.
Then,
You saw someone smiling at you.
Instantly, you smiled back.
A smile lights up the world.

Always find a reason to smile.
There will be one.
Remember the time,
When you broke up with your first.
Then,
You realised that,
Perhaps he or she wasn’t the one.You smiled knowing you’ll find,
Find someone better.

Always find a reason to smile.
Even when times are tough.
Remember the time,
When everything goes wrong.
Then,
You’ll know,
Nothing can get worse than that.

Smile,
It may not be easy.
But sure it’s easy to do.
Real or fake one doesn’t matter,
As much as other people do.
They may not realise,
That the smile may contain tears.
Tears filled with sorrow.

But you can’t deny.
Smiling lights up the world.
It’s a simple gesture,
That means so much more.
Smile,
For all you want.
As they say,
Smile when you have teeth 🙂

I always knew l…

I always knew looking back on my tears would bring we laughter, but i never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry.
– Cat Stevens

How true this is 🙂

When we look back on (some) things that make us cry, we would tend to laugh at how silly we actually were. Like, dropping our ice-cream when we were young, unwilling to go to school, or maybe our first break up.

But, laughter. Things that we associate with laughter often brings us happiness, tears? I never thought so. But it’s true. More often or not we would leave out things that we were once happy about. Looking back at those times, knowing that we missed those times. Looking back at those times, knowing that we were happy for a reason. Looking back at those times, wanting to return to that period of time. Looking back at those times, remembering that those happy times, may never happen again…As they say, people change, but memories don’t.
