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.

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.
