Understanding LIfe

If it was up to me, i would write everyday.  Then again, IT IS up to me.

So why not?  I do not have the talent to articulate my thoughts the way i want to.
The few times i write well, i get too surprised after reading it through a few days after.  And most of the time, i vaguely remember what it was about.

My friend Melan used to always remind me to not worry too much because life is too short to be miserable.  And i say "Hell yeah!" to that.  It is true.  Life is too short.  He's been dead for a year, if anyone is interested to know.  So I chanced upon this book online.  "THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK" and it has brought my miserable days to inches of happiness.  Same idea about life being too short to be miserable but maybe some things can be treated differently versus the others, and identifying which ones to give a fuck about will mainly be driven with what one values in life.  Its the same as "Choosing ones battles wisely".  Choosing to win on battles that matter.

So yeah.  Why am i blabbing about this today?  Well, yesterday was a bit of an eye opener in a lot of ways.  I have been intentionally not giving a f*ck about a lot of things lately and yesterday, i kinda went back.  Maybe because i made myself believe that i dont care about those things but really deep in my core and in my heart, I do.  

Now, gotta go back to the drawing board.  Understand this life, i must.  My values and its stand on me may not be so strong as yet. Or maybe, i just haven't realized it as i thought i did.

Far far away land

I always thought i love travelling.
Discovering new things, going to different places...

Now almost halfway across the home base
After days of going to great places...
To places that would have sparked my dying wick

How come i still feel empty?
How is it that i feel lost?
That I don't belong?

The need to be true to myself,
Requiring me to be more genuine
happiness needs to be true
Love needs be honest

Where is my heart at?
That I have to find out...

Checking if this works

If i listed down all my what if thoughts, i would have written volumes of books on it already...

End of a Quarter

Today marks the last day of the first quarter of the year.  Yes guys, 3 months have passed this 2017!

I get that feeling that my next entry after this will be asking on what happened to the year.  I dont want this to happen.  I dont want to see myself looking at the ceiling wondering if i did anything great this 2017.

Every morning for the past weeks, as i go through my trip to the office, i have been asking myself on what can be the real purpose of my existence.  Did i get to already made a mark? to the people around me or the people i interact and engage with?

I want to say to myself that "you're doing great" but am I?

I dunno.  But i hope this is not yet it.. It cannot be just this.
