"They say don't let them in
Close your eyes and clear your thoughts again
But when I'm all alone, they show up on their own
'Cause inner demons fight their battles with fire
Inner demons don't play by the rules
They say "Just push them down, just fight them harder
Why would you give up on it so soon?"
So angels, angels please just keep on fighting
Angels don't give up on me today
'Cause the demons they are there, they just keep biting
'Cause inner demons just won't go away
So angels please, hear my prayer
Life is pain, life's not fair
So angels please, please stay here
Take the pain, take the fear
They say it won't be hard, they can't see the battles in my heart
But when I turn away
"Underneath the echoes
Buried in the shadows
There you were
Drawn into your mystery
I was just beginning
To see your ghost
But you must know
I'll be here waiting
Hoping, praying that
This light will guide you home
When you're feeling lost I'll leave my love
Hidden in the sun
For when the darkness comes."
- Colbie Cailat, When the darkness comes
On this date, I nurtured a pure bond and rediscovered my love of watching the stars. I gazed at those shimmering stars in awe.
Truly, I couldn't possibly feel closer to blossoming into a rose.

Enough said, nothing but truth in this one.
FILL IN THE BLANKS
1. This year I want consistency in a balanced & active lifestyle and less of making excuses.
2. If I had to choose one word to focus this year it would be 'balanced'.
3. I want to stop doing idle pondering, start doing the goals I set, and keep doing the best I can with faith.
4. My greatest worry or concern this year is not embracing chances.
5. This year I will embrace a relationship.
From Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah said:
Musa bin Imran once asked,
"O my Lord, who is the most noble person in Your sight?"
Allah swt replied:
"Whoever is ready to forgive even though he has the ability to take revenge. "
The Prophet was asked, "What deeds are loved most by Allah?"
He said, "The most regular constant deeds even though they may be few."
He added, 'Don't take upon yourselves, except the deeds which are within your ability."

As you grow through this life, remember the times when you were young and tiny.
Remember the child you were?
Never lose that inner child; the sense of wonder, the curiosity, the innocence and the joy only a child could bring!
Yes you are growing but you are always a part of your beginning and that is truly remarkable!
"Sometimes you read a book so special that you want to carry it around with you for months after you've finished just to stay near it."
My biggest passion:
My biggest passion in my life thus far is being an early childhood educator.
Growing up, I had ambitions such as being a counsellor or a social worker. At some point however, during my school years, we were encouraged to start thinking about the field we wanted to pursue after secondary school/high school. I always had my eye on that course - Child Psychology and Early Education. Looking back, I always thought it would simply stay as a wishful goal. See, I knew it was not easy to meet the academic requirements in order to be accepted into that particular course. I knew my grades were not on par. I did not harbour any high hopes.
Long story short, I got accepted to the...
Was that you,
sending me a message through his words?
If that was you,
I heard you, gentle and clear.
I will remember that - Faith.
I will nurture Faith in my heart.
All my gratitude to you.

- Movie, I want to eat your pancreas
Embracing myself is harder than I thought it would be
I am learning to understand myself better each day.
For now, good night dear heart.
Be still and have faith.
You're in safe hands.
Trust the journey you're blessed with.
I'll find you
I'll know you

As he kissed me gently on my head and held me strongly in his arms, I never felt safer in the world.
Almighty's blessing to me, a protector, a strong and loving protector - my dearest father.

This feels like letting go.
All in its own time..
Background quote source: Brigitte Nicole
in that moment,
it felt like I was seeing her through myself.
It was terrifying
to have that heaviness in my chest
and so much sorrow in my gut
without knowing the reason why.
What I felt, felt like a glimpse.
Imagine living like that for half of your life.
I wanted to understand. Now I do.

Notes On An Unhurried Journey
Professor T. Ripaldi
"When we adults think of children, there is a simple truth which we ignore; childhood is not preparation for life; childhood is life. A child isn’t getting ready to live; a child is living. The child is constantly confronted with the nagging question: “What are you going to be?” Courageous would be the youngster who, looking the adult squarely in the face, would say, “I’m not going to be anything; I already am.”
We adults would be shocked by such an insolent remark, for we have forgotten, if indeed we ever knew, that a child is an active participating and contributing member of society from the time he is born. Childhood isn’t a time when h...
I can hardly believe it sometimes
These years passing me by
First few years were the hardest
Some days, I almost don't remember losing you
Some days, I bawled my eyes out
Some days, the slightest things ended up being the biggest triggers
God, the flashbacks were painful
Always, the flashbacks
The same scene over and over again
Regret filled me with wishes that will never come true:
Wishing I could change things I did
Wishing I could change the words I said
Wishing I could say the words I never said
Wishing I was a better person to you
Wishing I understood your struggles
Wishing I had shared your pain
Wishing you were there with me
More years passed
And I won't lie
It seemed easie...
Sometimes, I don't take notice of the people who passes me by. Especially those who seem to be different or peculiar. I realise I seem to have a certain thought about how people are likely to be. I can be judgemental though it's a trait I don't wish to have. Eventually, I realise that the differences are not what it seems and most of the time, they surprise and move me, open my eyes and alter my thoughts.
"I felt lost but also didn't want to be found." She wrote in her journal. She sighed and closed the book.
She looked up to find him standing right in front of her, smiling the kindest smile she's ever seen.
How long was he standing there? How did she not notice? How did she not feel his presence? Was she too engrossed in her words and her thoughts? He always had the knack of catching her by surprise and she finds that super annoying but secretly endearing. The kind of things he makes her feel, it's more than words can say, it's quite simply an emotion to indulge in. "Snap out of it, you got to stay firm with your stand, don't waver," she convinced herself.
He takes a step closer, bent ...
What if i send you some words everyday?
That way, you will always know you're in my thoughts even if we don't get a chance to speak with each other.
It may be my words or words from another person that I quote but always, the intention is to wish you well and hopefully, inspire in little ways.
I would love that. I would really love that.
