You’ve gone this far…don’t give up or you wouldn’t know how it feels to reach the other side.

Hey people of the world! I’m considering doing a weekly relationship advice column on here, but that GREATLY relies on your questions! So, you can choose to leave a question in the comment section OR tweet me @LeJobless (I’m yet to change my username). I’ll try my best to answer all questions to the best of my abilities…I’m no expert though.
Thank you for following! I never imagined I’d reach to anyone but you guys are awesomesauce! XOXO

Peace and serenity.

For many of you out there, it’s still the last few hours of Sunday. Well, for us on the other side of the world, it’s Monday morning. And this calls for the blues, as we’re all well aware of.

But, listen up. It doesn’t have to be this way. I know I’ve been talking a lot about changing perspectives, but this is a different thing. Meditation. Meditation is a powerful tool that only a few readily possess. Before you start your day with the hustle and bustle of the world, take some time in your own home, somewhere away from gadgets and distraction, and simply calm your body down with deep breathes.
Now, for me, I love standing in front of the window and just feeling the coldness of the morning breeze on my skin as I close my eyes and shut the world out. For that few moments, I’m free and calm. And it makes waking up a little earlier much more worth it.
Take time to enjoy the silence, the scenery, the chirping of birds…it’s times like these that makes you more thankful for the things around you.

Be kind to one another 🙂 x

Marriage.

With all the talk of marriage and commitment I’ve been hearing from friends who are in relationships, getting married, already married, I’ve decided to put my two cents worth on this topic with this post.

I’m not married nor am I in a relationship (self-declared happy single), but I’ve had enough relationship woes to impart some light on this tough, and sometimes, sticky but nonetheless lovely topic…or so, I hope.

Well, here’s the breakdown:
Once the icing of every relationship has been licked off, we start knowing our partner more – to see and experience things that are part of their true self, their ups and downs. For many, this becomes somewhat of a glass shattering into pieces – that fairytale life you had of a happily ever after? That once romanticized idea of a “perfect” partner? It’s all gone. All gone. And now, you’re wandering if you even love this “completely different person.”

This then, leads to a break up cos “it’s just not working out” or “we’re too different for each other” or the classic “it’s not you, it’s me.” You’d think we’d get better break up lines in this generation. Hah!

Or, if the both of you are interested in each other, through the good and the bad, you’d both learn to make it work. After all, who wants a Stepford partner? It’s the differences that spice up any relationship. But most important, an open mind and loads of patience to each other. Quoting Ellie from The Awkward Moment, “Being there for someone when they really need you is all any relationship is.”

Now, Marriage. The huge M word that sends some running to the nearest exit or jumping up to the skies with glee. If you can’t even handle a proper relationship, what makes you think you can handle a marriage? Forget about having a grand wedding, spending millions on one day only to pay back with interest for years to come. Instead, invest more on a better future with your partner. A wedding lasts a day, but marriage lasts a lifetime. Don’t throw a Kim K stunt and make a mockery of it. Marriage is sacred. It shouldn’t be used just so you can buy a flat and finally get out of your parents’ home. Marriage is sacred. Don’t make it something out of convenience.

That’s my two cents worth 🙂

Be kind to one another 🙂 x
