Awakening Journey (Part III)


Cw @ Switzerland

When I was approached by sweet Barbara and the thought of me not being forgotten, made me feel so warm and touched. Much memories came back. Similar title but different feel and thoughts. I was given another reason to read what I have written 4 years ago. You can walk down this memory lane with me.

I opted for this post to be shared on this special day because each year, this was a day that emotions are especially strong. I reflected on anything and everything, significantly on my achievements and my mistakes.

This year was another milestone in life. I have officially graduated from university and landed myself in my dream job in the desired industry.

Human Relationship
Human relationship was something I treasured and craved for in the past. I love being around people and I was always the one who initiated meet ups or outings. There were much vivid memories of me spending time to have late night chats with friends. I was always nice to people but to the younger me, it would have been fake if I said I did not expect the same back. I recalled, often I felt hurt at people’s decisions of wanting to cut ties. People around me seemed to leave without any tinge of hesitation. Those moments were upsetting and was something that I could not comprehend. I remembered looking for an answer at times but obviously there was not any.

“The only thing that is constant is change.” – Heraclitus
As I grew older, things have changed tremendously. It was no longer that easy to meet up with people, talk to people and the late-night chats that I love became lesser and lesser. Denial was something I encountered. I struggled to accept changes which eventually as I grew older, it was something I had to learn to accept. It took me awhile to learn that it is never about the quantity but quality. I questioned the point of having so many acquaintances but during my down times, who will be there to listen to me? I could also easily link it to a concept I used to have. I wanted to live longer if I could, to be a centenarian, to flaunt this achievement of living long. But was I able to tell people at that point of time that I have lived my life to the fullest? In my hesitation, I guess I found my own answer.

“It is not length of life, but depth of life.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
In my job, people share with me all sort of stories. Some make you feel touched because you feel the sincerity and love one could give to another and that is the purest asset one can have in life. On the other hand, you see the ugliest side of human, the hurt; pain and regrets people have experienced, which shape them to be who they are today. The expectations in society often cause us to forget that we are just humans and mistakes are part of being human. The more we want, the more we chase and when we fall, we sink deep right in. Many times, we forget how to pick ourselves up. It was also at the point of time when I felt, relationship with humans was something I will like to protect.

“Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.” – Mary Tyler Moore
In these years, I have lost and gained. Some people left while the others remain. I stopped chasing for people who do not reciprocate even after much attempts. I stopped being the person who tried hard to please everyone and to keep everyone in my life because I know deep in my heart, some people come as blessings whereas the others are life lessons.

“In every end, there is also a beginning.” – Libba Bray
That step to make this decision was not easy, but it was like an open door to me. I felt free. I constantly remind myself to live my life to the fullest each day, so I will not have any regrets if I were going to leave tomorrow. Today, I still stick to my values and principles of always being kind to people, regardless of any differences. I am on my way to do my little part for the society and I am proud of making that small difference.

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” – Mother Teresa
Each of our life, is our awakening journey. Self-realization, acceptance and learning to embrace who you are, are just the parts and parcels of it. We never stop learning and we pay the price of each decisions that we make. My very own journey led me to various paths, allowing me to be a different person than I was before. I strongly believe our insignificant bits made significance to our lives and it is beautiful and perfect just like that.

Lastly, to me today, happy birthday.

2014 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

Really thankful for around 11,000 reads this year and gained around 600 followers this year. Really appreciate it alot for all your support and hope that next year will be a better one 🙂

“God gave you a gift of 84,600 seconds today. Have you used one of them to say thank you?”
― William Arthur Ward 

Words,


Have you ever wondered what words are for?

They could be used to convey messages.

They could be used to express people’s feelings.

They could be used to communicate.

But what are words, if one really don’t mean them?

I used to think that words are such a amazing tools.

They can inspire people, but yet they can hurt one too.

But what are words, really for?

I guess each of us have a different answer. Everyone have different meanings behind their words.

For me, I like to use words to inspire people around me, cheer people up when they are sad, and through words, I hope I can make a difference in their lives. Also, hopefully, they can see the sincerity behind my words. 🙂 Another thing is that words allow me to blog. Without words, I can’t even have a blog to express my thoughts. Bloggers, I guess you feel the same way, don’t you? 😀

So what are your views about words? 🙂 Comment below to share with me your thoughts!

Anyway, I found a song just nice for today’s topic- What are words.

Enjoy 🙂

“I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even row. I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.”
