"It looks so nice,
❤ English translation of the Hindi song lyrics, Bade Acche Lagte Hain
"Ada hati yang selalu tertidur; baru terjaga saat kehilanganmu.
Ada hati yang senantiasa terjaga dan tak pernah tertidur karena takut kehilanganmu."
- Tim Zaman
"There is a heart that is always asleep; just awake when losing you.
There is a heart that is always awake and never falls asleep for fear of losing you."
Sometimes we don't know how much someone means to us until we lose them. Sometimes, we know but our fears gets in the way.
I get terrified. Terrified of taking new steps and things not working out. Terrified of facing the truths behind my fears.
Challenge your thoughts. About things, about people, about your likes and dislikes.
You may find something there and it may be worthwhile.
"Di antara hal terberat dalam hidup adalah kata-kata di hatimu yang tak mampu kau ungkapkan."
"Among the heaviest things in life are the words in your heart that you cannot express. "
- Tim Zaman
You know what's that like, right?
Having so much to say yet all hidden inside.
Not the right time to say.
Not knowing the right words to say.
Not the right thing to say.
Not brave enough to say.
Not ready to say.
So it stays, all the words buried in you, unspoken and weighing on you so heavily.
Do you know?
I miss you. Everyday, I miss you. I thought I would miss you lesser each day but clearly that is not happening. My heart yearns for the bond we shared.
I am moving on, dear. I guess this is part of the bittersweet experience that we shared. I can't deny the process and I will keep striving.
Gekkie, I miss you so much.
Sometimes when you're really silent, you start to hear things you didn't hear before.
What do you hear?
Friendship is an understanding beyond words.
Friendship is when a friend just simply gets you.
Friendship is when you haven't met that friend for a long time yet you know that he or she has got your back.
Friendship is when you may not agree eye to eye but that doesn't make him or her any less of a friend.
Friendship is tolerance.
Friendship is a bond with love.
Friendship is striving through differences.
Friendship is sometimes a mystery and unexpected.
Friendship is appreciation & concern despite distance.
Friendship are many things but above all, it's a gift - a gift of life that one is blessed to have.
"I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin'
Lovin' might be a mistake, but it's worth makin'
Don't let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin' out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance (Where those years have gone."

Song: I hope you dance
My heart believes something else.
My mind thinks something else.
What happens when thoughts and beliefs coincide?
Did you see that, how the parent nurtered the sense of wonder in her children? How she stopped to looked at what her children was looking at (in awe), how she squat with them at their level and observed together? Amazing, isn't it?
That was certainly an eye opener. I am glad you witnessed that and don't you forget that dear.
My mind is full 😕
Quiet your mind. Take things one at a time. Slow down. Look around, what is truly essential? You're not in a race. Everything may feel like it's catching up to you but really, you can afford to slow down and catch your breath. Hang in there. For now, please just take a break.
Dialogue/Monologue from the movie:
'6 Balloons' directed by Marja-Lewis Ryan
There's a boat in the middle of the ocean.
Tell yourself that you can drive the boat, even after you capsized.
Tell yourself that no one will notice.
Admit to yourself that you chose to walk down that dock.
Admit that you chose to get on that boat even though you knew you couldn't drive it.
Admit that you saw the rot and never fix it, that you had a chance to stay on dry land but instead, you boarded the boat again.
Admit that you never asked for help, even when it was offered to you.
And now, let go.
We're on the same boat.
You are on the same boat.
You are on the sam...
It looks noble when we see other people going through it.
It becomes a challenge when we're the ones in the same shoes.
Are we as compassionate?
Are we as patient?
Are we as understanding?
Are we as tolerant?
Are we as perceptive?
What are the odds that we will we do the same?
A girl like that doesn't happen overnight. I know enough to see that she's broken inside. You need to tell her that she can't always be a saviour and that sometimes, she is going to need saving too. I would hate to see her lose her way.
Look out for her, will you?
Have you ever felt like you have yet to believe all the good things that people believe you deserve?
