"If you could let the pain of the past go
Of your soul
None of this is in your control

If you could only let your guard down
If you could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won't let you go
If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won't let you go

I won’t let you go
I'll always be by your side."

*Song lyrics - I won't let you go by Switchfoot

Remembering how much Switchfoot's songs inspired me in the phases of my life. ❤

Do you remember that letter I gave you? I remember texting you and telling that I had something to give you. The next day when we met, you asked,
"What was so so important that you had to give?"
I handed you the letter. You read it among our friends and I think I heard one of them jokingly asked me, "Hana, where's my letter?" I just laughed.
Looking back, giving you the letter was one of the hardest things I braced myself to do. You see, I have written and given letters before but never like that.

What I wrote to you, I wrote with hopes for you.
What I wrote to you, I wrote because I had faith in you, because I had faith in my words.
What I wrote to you, I wrote because it was important for ...

Dare you to move song lyrics
Band: Switchfoot

"Welcome to the Planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never ha...

What looks perfect to you isn't perfect. What looks perfect to you is a reflection of what you perceive as perfect. What looks perfect has its imperfections.

Dear self

Would you be the same person you were if you knew what you didn't know back then?

Would you have lived differently?

Would you have loved differently?

Would you have cared differently?

Would it have been possible to lived, loved, cared and understand the way you do now given the circumstances or your maturity during that phase?

Having this realisation must not give you the idea that it is okay to be ignorant but rather on having patience that personal growth takes time and is different for every person for its own reasons.

Everything will truly be in its time.

Patience, my dear and try to keep the faith. If you ever lose it, look for it in reflections. Reflections of the pas...

Is it because of principles or stubbornness?

Which one?

How do you differentiate which is which?

Dear self

When you start to admit the truth you held inside for so long, the answers gradually appear.

It may be uncomfortable.
It may seem ridiculous.
It may not make sense to the people around you but you know it's true.

Don't stop the process. Pause if you must and reflect but never, ever ever stop your efforts to change and break the cycle.

"You're special."

For a very long time, I didn't see what he saw. I wanted to believe what he said but I didn't feel special.

I think I am starting to now.

I am special.

Thank you P.
Thank you for what you see in me.

"I'm lying on the moon

My dear, I'll be there soon

It's a quiet starry place

Time's we're swallowed up

In space we're here a million miles away."

Dear self,

You know something is wrong somewhere.

You feel it in your gut.

You don't want to stay in the same cycle.

You don't believe in what you hear.

You know there's more to it than what's on the surface.

Your mind urge you to find out, to seek help and discover the root of it all.

You know an option you can consider.

How do you take that step?

What does it take?

Or maybe, what are you afraid of?

Today I caught myself doubting myself the way I did before.

I recall how I felt I wasn't making any progress. Truth was, I didn't notice and revel in the little things that was building up to the bigger picture. I was just anticipating the outcome.

It's like what Dan Millman wrote in his book, The Peaceful Warrior:

"The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination."

We hardly have any idea how much impact we're bringing into each other's lives, do we?

Everyday, we cross each other's lives and every day, we affect each other in ways we may not even realise.

"Sometimes I wonder what lies ahead
How long till my hunger is fed?
They say it's hard to make it in this part of town
So many people on this merry-go-round

Some folks try astrology
Some turn to crystal balls
To find an answer
To get through it all
I just fall on my knees and I try to pray
In the silence I can hear Him say

The river runs and the river hides
Out to the ocean and under the sky
I promise you, the answer will come
Hold on to patience and watch for the sign
Everything in its time

I often feel like I'm two steps behind
Somebody must have moved that finish line
There are a thousand reasons
Why I should give up
But I'm stubborn in the things I believe

Do you remember the times you made it to the goals you envisioned even though you thought you will never make it, even though you had no idea how much longer it was going to take & even though you nearly gave it all up?

Do you remember the times life caught you by surprise when what you thought was impossible became a reality?

Do you remember the times you appreciated and experienced the blessings even though struggles never seemed to leave?

Remember those times, my dear.

Remember that by heart and keep on striving!

Writing prompt- Lost love

I thought I would never understand all those little things you said, showed and made me feel.

Eventually, I admitted to myself that I have always known. You didn't state the obvious but you showed what you felt.

If we could go back, I would tell you how wonderful you made me feel because you deserved to know that.

But I think what you have from me should suffice for you to know what a significant difference you made.

Maybe we didn't really lose what we thought we had, maybe we gained the love we needed to helped us grow in our respective lives and maybe, just maybe sometimes love meant letting go.

For the record, you made me smile too :)

Dear ma

Thank you for giving birth to me 27 years ago. Today I am grateful for these 27 years that I have been blessed with. It's been quite a journey, ma. I can't believe sometimes how many years have passed and that same amount of years you have missed in my life. I missed you ma. Missed you so.  I hope and always pray that your soul are blessed with peace & love by the Almighty.

You may not be here, Ma but you are always in my thoughts through this life journey.

I hope we meet at the end of this journey. I will strive through this journey, Ma.

Semoga kita jumpa di akhirnya, Ma. Sayang mama.

Note: Thanks Jen for the stamp, the message in it reminds me of the need to unwind for a balanced lifestyle.

I get too caught up with stuff at work sometimes. I think about tasks pertaining to work even when I am done for the day. When my mind gets too cluttered, I seldom find myself being able to engage effectively and productively in what I do.

Most often than not, a simple, even short but consistent act of time allocated just to relax can do wonders in bringing the balance needed.

So, time to relax! Hehe
