It’s hard being a writer. It’s not always easy to have ideas every time and it’s annoying when you think you have something to say but when you’re about to pen it down, your mind wipes blank. But then again, this is my pride. This is my soul I give to you, with every post. I didn’t mean to have so many followers when I started this, and for all of you, I’m eternally grateful.
Now, the best way to feel good about yourself is actually simpler than what we know or think. The fact is you’ve probably heard it a million times too.
Move away from negative people. Stop stressing over the little things. Don’t overthink. Exercise. Be thankful.
The list goes on, really. And I’m gonna say just that. All of the above are true and exactly what you should be doing daily. We’re fast growing into a robot-like world where everyone is tied up to a phone or tablet (I’m guilty as I’m typing this post out on my phone while on my way home), but why has that stopped us from living life and being happy with ourselves?
I shall end with a quote by someone famous, whom I can’t remember the name of (I’m sincerely sorry),
Don’t live to exist. Exist to live.
P/s: If you know who said this, please let me know! Thank you!
Love & Peace.
Those are the words you should tell yourself every second, every minute, every day. “I love me”, cos if you don’t, who else will?
I’ve been through a rough few weeks of angst behaviors with all the negative thoughts I keep in my head, mainly from work and family. Recently, I went to Bangkok and it really couldn’t be at a better time. That time away from everything got me to be more grounded within myself. I managed to have some time to myself every morning for meditation and a few minutes of exercise before breakfast, before my travel buddy woke up. I got the luxury of lazing around and not do anything. Yes, I was a bit crazy to bring along some study material but it was always at the same place that I left it till departure – the coffee table. Haha!
Anyway, back to the subject. In times of stress and rush, and especially with all the noise in the world, it’s good to find some quiet time for yourself. Each and every one of us are born differently. There’s no just one type of beauty – which is really not the photoshopped images media portrays everywhere. Begin to love the small things about yourself, perhaps from the way your mouth curves when you smile or the way you laugh or the way your hair is so camera ready (like, where’s the gush of wind when you need it?)…you get the drift. Always starts from the smaller things. Say something nice about yourself to the mirror EVERY DAY.
Hint: It’s also a good way of keeping fit for a longer time. The more confident you are about yourself, the more you’re able to keep out.
And just cos the world could use a bit more love, and a lot less hatred.
Think about it.
Love & Peace.
Man, I’ve missed this place. It’s the one place that I know where time comes to a stop. And the people here are genuinely nice and friendly. It’s such a pleasant change to the buzzing city I’m from.
I don’t want to head back but this break will end in 2 days. Gotta make the most of it. Off to get my nails and hair done now! See ya 🙂
Peace & Love.
Thankful for this feeling of happiness returning back, despite all the shit happening. It could be the fact that I’m only a few days away to a short holiday, but I’m loving it.
Thankful for the comfort of my friends.
Thankful for the ability to make others around me smile.
Peace & Love.
