In the process of finding out life's magical secrets..... <3
January 6, 2019
 

As another year starts, let us learn to forgive ourselves and never be afraid to start all over again.
Failures are inevitable and so are the challenges.
Take one step at a time and learn from your mistakes. And most importantly,
BE KIND,
CHOOSE LOVE,
and be THE CHANGE.
The world needs someone like you and so are the people around you.

Last year, I lost a close friend because of being a coward.
I lost a friend because I wasn't able to protect our friendship from those masked people trying to break our friendship.
What breaks my heart the most is that I didn't know that friend of mine has a major depression.
I always try to make things up but it seems that I have been the cause of her pain so badly.
Today, I saw her post on scoial media about wanting and having to treat her sickness and I'm really happy about it.
I just blame myself for being such a coward and a very bad friend back then.
I may not be able to travel back in time to make things right but at least I've learned from this experience and I promise myself to alway...

For 2019, let us not be afraid to take risks we've tried to skip the previous years.
Let's live to the fullest and seize every opportunities that will come.
Let us not compare and be content.
Let us give unlimited love and accept it.
Let us learn to see the beauty on every situations.
Let us not regret decisions for everything happens for a reason.
Let us forgive ourselves from what happened in the previous year and celebrate another year full of hope and love knowing that everyday is a chance to make things better and be the person you always wanted to be.

Happy New Year! 🎆❤🎊🎇

11 days before Christmas.

Today, I feel so restless. A while ago, while I was on the road riding a three wheeled public transportation, it rained hard.
There's no cover on the sides to where I'm riding at. Honestly, I kinda feel bad because my outfit and other things with me are starting to get wet due to the heavy rain. So, I tried to turn to the driver whom can I ask for any sort of cover.

As I turned to him, I saw an aged man who's soaked in the rain.
All the time I'm complaining to myself with my clothes or my bag getting wet, I didn't realize how the man suffered just to get through his job.

In life, we usually complain to all our problems and sufferings. But never use  that reason ...

MERRY CHRISTMAS

12 days before Christmas.

They say, if a door closes, it means another one will open.

I wonder, if I'm the one who closes a door, will it still willing to open up for me?

Today, I decided to write about my thoughts and curiosity on the things I've encountered this year.

Honestly, there are a lot of things going in my head since I resigned from my job. All the 'What Ifs', the confused feeling of regret, the 'What will happen now' feeling and mixed emotions of fear, excitement, and confusion. Even it was more than half a year ago, I don't know why I can't help but think of all these things.

On another note, today, I finished one of my research paper in Grad School. I was thankful for gaini...

"Happy Birthday. Thank you for being kind and sweet. The world needs people like you"

Today is my birthday.
It was a normal tuesday.
Nothing seems to be special.
Nothing seems to matter.
Not until I opened this greeting card with a message that struck my existence.
I wrote this letter for you and for me.
So when a time comes you feel useless and worthless, This letter could remind you that you were born to this world for a purpose. Your existence has a meaning. You may not realize the things you're contributing to this world, but trust me, "The world needs people like you".
Only you.
And no one else.

I just realized that I've been at 'Lettrs' for 4 years now.

Indeed,

Life's challenges are like Lettrs app,
you hesitated if you can, you tried, you start from scratch, you develop yourself, and next thing you know, it's not that difficult at all.

You are there for a reason,
You are there because God knows you can,
That it can serve you a purpose not just to improve yourself, but to influence and motivate other people along the way.

Have you ever encountered that feeling of regretting something in the past, but at the same time, you're not regretting all the things that happened after that specific critical decision you've made in your life?

Dear 23 yr old self and to those who were in the same boat as me,

It's really difficult to understand life at this moment of time, decisions that aren't carefully thought of, regrets, career rejections, love rejections, financial problems, and life full of "what ifs".
Even though you really don't know what will happen next, even if how many times those regrets crossed over your mind, and how many rejections you got, you always have the time to get up and MOVE FORWARD.

Whatever i...

One of the hardest feeling in life, is saying goodbye.
It pains the most when you know that this might be or this is definitely the LAST.
Eventually it happens to all of us at some points of our life.

When that time comes,
Always seize the moment.
Feel it. LIVE for the moment, eventhough it hurts.
Never take things for granted.

And most of all, make sure never to look back once it had passed.
You can take a glance on it, But NEVER dwell on to it.
This is very important especially when we unexpectedly get attached to something or to someone.

Always remember,
Life is a ONE WAY ride.

Make sure not to miss anything ahead
Because of trying to look back to save the feeling you had in the past.

"When will you take your first step towards reaching your dreams?"

I remember hearing this a lot of times for the past few years.
One question that makes you reminisce and question the things you did in the past and doubt yourself.

When is that time really?

Is it on the days I tried to step up and go for change eventhough I failed?

Is it on the days I tried to go out of my comfort zone and took a risk on the things I'm afraid at?

Or is it on the days I tried not to give up on the things happening in my life?

Or maybe I haven't even started yet?

The truth is...

All of those are part of the steps you've taken towards your dreams. You may not see it now, you may have failed countless tim...

Dear future love,

I hope on the day you'll first see me,
You'll like me.
Not because of how I look,
Not because of my body,
Not because I can sing,
Not because of my hair color and OOTD,
Not because of having no one beside you that day except me.

I hope on the day you'll first see me,
You'll like me.
For no reason.
For you think I'm just lovely.
For you think I was different from all your other girls.

I hope that on the day you'll first see me,
The weather is good.
The timing is right.
I already learned to love myself.
And so are you.

I hope that on the day you'll first see me,
Is the day you've met your other half.
The day that will change your life.
The day that you'll always remember.
...

Waiting.

One word that gives you a lot of 'too much'

Too much expectation.
Too much heartache.
Too much anxiety.
Too much time wasted.

And, Too much of overthinking that makes you view your life as

"Too much to handle"

In case we're on the same boat, let's not forget that GOD made the word 'WAIT' to remind us that LIFE itself,
Has 'Too much' to offer.

WAIT.
And see it for yourself.

One glass of water please.

It's been a while.
I have been like that glass of water.
Half-empty.
Half-Full.
Empty with words from the heart.
Full of words from that restless mind.
Saving every drop.
Being thirsty for every taste.
Before this night ends,
I would like to share this empty words, to empty out my mind.
For I would like to end this life lived in HALF
And to live FULL tomorrow.

Goodbye, thoughts that haunts.
Let's not meet again.
Let good memories take care of you from TODAY onwards.

May we all go to where our heart wants to go.
May we never wait for the perfect timing for it is always 'now'.
May we never fear the word 'alone' for we're not created for it.
May we learn how to live, love, be loved and never get tired of it.

Happy New Year everyone! May 2017 bring us happiness and more great memories. 🎆🎆🎆

Dearest friend,

Sometimes, there's this time in your life wherein all the bad memories keeps knocking into your mind at a random day, at a random time, at a random hour.
A time where all seems to go back to how it used to be.
A time where all those "moving on" stuff seems to be on the far away corner.

When that time comes,
Do not be afraid.

Feat not of letting go.
Be courageous in making new memories.
Always keep in mind that every beginning has its challenging side.

Let me remind you again in case you've forgotten,
You've conquered it once,
And surely, you'll slay it this time also,
Even a hundred times better than how you did it in the past.

I find life amazing because of each strength and weaknesses we have.

One of my weaknesses is when people leave in my life.

And, one of my strength is having the will to always push myself to move forward.

And I think that's one beauty of life.
Strengths are made of weaknesses.

So to you who's reading this letter, wherever you are right now,
You can be whatever you want to be.
You are unstoppable.
You are awesome.
You can conquer whatever it is you're battling within.

Light.
Light in the darkness.
A lot of people can see it.
Some could not.
While some pretended they didn't see it.

Light.
Light in the darkness.
Some are too far from it.
Some are indeed too close.
There are some who's almost there.

Light.
Light in the darkness.
Some have this already beside them watching too.
While some are still looking for it somewhere.

Light.
Light in the darkness.
This is you.
This is maybe me to you
This is how it's supposed to be.
This is how it's meant to be.
As meant to be as how light blends in the darkest of the sky.

A friend and a tissue

I remember that one sunny saturday, I was hanging out with one of my favorite office friend in a cozy food place.
I remember asking for a tissue after eating from the waiter and he gave us one that has letter 'K' with it which is also the first letter of my name.
I was amazed. My friend told me to keep it as a souvenir. I chose to keep it indeed even I knew that it was a silly thing to keep something that's very easy to decay. Many times I see it in my drawer, but chose to still keep it for unknown reason.

One weekend, I'm quite feeling emotional in my room since that friend of mine will be leaving our office already.
Then while sorting things out of my cabinet, I foun...

BIRTHDAY.

That one day wherein you're overwhelmed with a lot of feelings. A feeling of expectation. A feeling of pure happiness. A feeling of sadness maybe. A feeling of maturity. A feeling of rebirth. A feeling of a brand new you. A feeling of sunlight within the darkness that overpowers you. It seems to be a goodbye feeling, and is indeed a welcome feeling.

When i was a kid, i used to ask what it feels like becoming a musician
The old ones used to tell me that I should go and learn it.
Then I did.
I started to learn different music instruments.

When i was a bit older, i used to ask what it feels like having to become an artist,
The old ones used to tell me that I should go and learn it.
Then I did.
I made myself creative.

When I was a teenager, i used to ask what it feels like becoming a writer,
The old ones used to tell me that I should go and learn it.
Then I did.
I studied.

And now,
I used to ask what does it feel like having one thing you're really good at..
that one thing you have worked hard since you were a kid.
Now i'm the old one ...

'PURPOSE'

I used to ask..
What is my PURPOSE in life?
What do i really want to do?
Why do other people found their talent and dreams earlier
Yet, here I am stucked with my life
Stucked with the thinking of what am I gonna be
Stucked with endless search of things I really wanted to pursue.

'BLESSING'

I may not realized my real purpose but I found another meaning for that 'PURPOSE'.
As I proceeded with my life trying out new things..
Diving in to things I don't even know how to start in the first place..
Sticking to opportunities that come and go even I knew it wasn't the one I was looking for..
I was told that I was a BLESSING.
Words from people who  already found their purpose..
Words fro...

It's not that I don't deserve you,
But YOU DON'T deserve me.

That moment in the past when you think a lot about how some people can stand being so RUDE and insensitive to the feelings of others.
And yet you are here now, coming to a realization that at one point in time, you've also become one of them.
You've once become a distraction to a peace of mind, a regret that haunts, and a pain to a heart who once loved.

It's not that I don't deserve you,
But it's just that I want to save you from the RUDE and WRONG person,
like ME.
