I saw a small leaf float down a stream on the side of the street today. Nobody noticed as they moved on with their busy lives, Rushing to cross the street and talking on their phones. It eventually drifted out of sight. Gone, Never to be seen again and it’s story never heard as I looked up at all the leafless trees around me. It seemed like a reminder, That a humble silent soul moves forward even if unseen and unheard by so many standing beside it.

Snow..Falling ever softly..So delicate..Yet..Within it’s peaceful beauty..A message..That we should always cherish every precious moment we are granted..Before time claims it as It’s own..
I was up late, talking to a friend of mine. Talking about long distance relationships, how they work and why it’s appealing for some.
Truth is, for those of us who are / were in one. We treasure the short moments together more, every minute and every word is a precious moment spent. Both, the good and the bad.
More importantly, it’s about trust. We trust our partner to be true to us. With this in our hearts, we know that if we decide to take it to the next level it will last.
Anyways, that’s my opinion behind it. Please, feel free to comment. I’m interested in your opinions
I know I said it before but I will say it again, But. The building I live at really is very Blah! typical wallpaper lining in the hallways and very typical hallway lights.
I’m sure the building upon construction probably got these on a special, why do I say that? because I’ve been to a few apartments and this is the only one that looks so boring. Well, you know what they say if you don’t like something right? either do something about it or let it go. So something is exactly what I decided to do! I went to the library across the street and took a picture of a flower I saw on my way home.
Now, I know the strata council in the building will never go for my next idea. Also, If I went off decorating the lobby’s hallway on my own I’d probably get slapped with some sort of fine. But, they never said anything about working within my own imagination. So, whatever will I do with this delicate beauty and a lamp? How about..this?
Wouldn’t this be a better look? It wouldn’t matter if it’s horribly rainy outside or even cloudy and ugly. At least, I could enjoy seeing something nice before heading out right? ah well, It’s a thought!
The year has begun, it’s time to put the book of the past away and start writing a new chapter in your life.
Whatever happened in the past, stays in the past because like all books. Once you have written a story, there’s no space for more lines. No space for more chapters, the story is finished.
This is a time to celebrate renewal and start fresh no matter where you now stand, if you hold regrets it’s time to let go and turn those regrets into hope. You only live once, make it a good one!
There’s always going to be that one person who you will always forgive, no matter how bad they have hurt you. Somehow you feel complete with them and when you aren’t, you will constantly feel like something is missing. I guess, this is what it means to really love someone despite their flaws.
I used to believe that there was always good in someone, that no matter how bad their decisions are or how wrong their actions might be. That there was always a reason behind every action and i just didn’t see it. But, sometimes i have to wonder if i am just too busy lying to myself to see the truth. The past few days, i keep getting the feeling that people are constantly wearing one mask after another. A lie behind another lie, or an ambition behind a kind act. Am i the only one who’s feeling this way? just a thought.
Trying to hold on to something good that happened only for a moment is like grasping at thin air, there’s the feeling that is there. But, you can’t hold on to it no matter how hard you try, some things are simply not meant to last. It’s just the way life reminds us, to enjoy what we can while it’s still there.
It’s true, what they say about taking it as it comes. Things do work out that much better, even old friendships seem renewed. I don’t know why, maybe because everything is taken slow and easy instead of always worrying about what’s coming and what’s not. I don’t think anything in life is meant to be rushed anyways, I hope this lasts because I’m happy that for once things are going good on the personal level.
Have you ever had a great chat? I mean a really great conversation where everything is said no matter what it is?anything was a good heartfelt conversation?
These are the best, when it doesn’t matter what the attraction is. The moment is all about hearing each other’s thoughts, sharing feelings and opinions without entering the realm of relationship. It’s how friendships are developed and the strongest foundation for something beyond the definition of the most heartfelt love, always treasure the moments because if you don’t hold it tight, you may lose it altogether.
The days are getting shorter and the nights have become longer, what happened to the summer? not only do I not remember much of it, but I don’t think I accomplished much in it either, don’t suppose this is what it means when they say to make the most of it before losing it all huh?
I often look back at people who have come and gone from my life, some have helped shape me into the person i am and others. Have helped me realize that i could so much better and the truth is, i have. In time i realized that for every person who couldn’t be there for me, there was always someone who’s wanted to be there. I just had to open up my heart enough to let them in, granted. I still go through moments where my emotions contradict these words, but i am after all. Just human, just like everyone else.
Ever had that one person in your life that’s hurt you time and again, but no matter what they did. Or how many times you said no more, you would always forgive them from just hearing their voice or a glance from them?
It kind of makes you wonder, do you let them come back into your life because you have forgiven them? or is there just a part of them that you see and hope that it will always be there? truthfully, in my opinion. If they ever given you the reason to leave them, then that’s reason enough to move on to begin with.
Ever feel like the memory of what someone tells you, is also the one thing that keeps you from moving on?they tell you something personal about themselves and that feels good at first when they tell you out of affection. But later, you see something they posted on twitter that leads to that memory again. So, all the feelings come rushing back. If you know to what I’m referring to, then you’ll agree with me. That it really sucks doesn’t it?
Isn’t it strange? how even the ones that we despise or hurt us the worst way, also tend to be the ones that give us the motivation to move on and be better than them?
I’m not saying that what they are doing is right or anything, I dislike it in every definition but if I didn’t have the drive to be better. Then, where would I have the motivation to write the way that I do or strive to reach higher than them? I guess it’s one of those things that don’t make sense but do at the same time huh?
In our everyday lives, there’s always going to be someone who will slow you down to force you to see things their way. But, you can have a choice. If you continue to let them affect how you feel, they will have the satisfaction that they ruined your day. If you ignore them and move on, then your choice is clear. You are the better person and you can carry on, the choices aren’t that hard in the end are they?
One of the loneliest moments of a being a single father, is late at night wondering how my daughter is doing. It is always the first thought because as a dad my child is my world, there’s never any doubts about it.
Then the feelings of concern fade as soon as they arrive when what my heart wants to say takes over, the feeling of loneliness and wishing for companionship. Not so much the physical aspect of it, but the desire to be near someone who understands and is willing to be part of my complicated life, I guess until that moment comes I will simply accept that I may be alone for some time to come. I have faith though, that someone will be with me.
If you ever felt that your life has been unfulfilled, look back and ask yourself who’s life you have influenced in a positive way. Have you done something for someone so that they will do the same for others? if your answer is yes then congratulations, you have fulfilled your life in the best way possible.
Living your life has nothing to do with having the chance to have been in the most passionate relationship, climbed the highest mountains or gone to the far reaches of the world. None of these will matter, if at the end of that journey you realize that nobody knows you did it. Contribute to the world by showing them the reasons you did it, then encourage them to chase after their dreams. That’s when you know you have lived your life to the fullest, when you have left a mark in the world..
Repressed thoughts are like ropes being wound up together, the more you try not to think about something the more it builds up. Then the more it builds up the more tension you feel from it, until eventually you snap and the worst thing you can do is snap at the one person that matters in your life most.
Be honest with yourself, show your real feelings and your real thoughts. Don’t ever assume nobody will understand, there’s always someone ready to hear your thoughts if only they knew.
Yesterday, our eyes glanced each other. I know you saw me but if only you knew what i saw in you, all i saw was your beautiful eyes and within them a world so beautiful, so profound that time seemed to had almost stopped. I tried to speak your name, but no words would come out because i had become breathless by your incredible beauty. Your hair seemed to carry a melody of it’s own as i flowed in the air, your warmth i felt though i never held you once. The moment of certainty i knew there was something, it was something i could not describe. It had to be love for when time resumed, i still remember you as clearly as when i last saw you. A heart forgets not such grace, a mind never forgets such a picture of graceful beauty such as yours..
I wonder, what is it that we always seem to feel about someone that makes us so sure that this is someone we want? is it because we want to be accepted? or is because we want the feeling of security? that we don’t have to ever search again? i don’t really know anymore. Every time i try to follow my feelings i seem to come up disappointed, either they are already spoken for or the feeling simply isn’t ever there there from them. So, then i ask myself what is the point and is it really worth it? is it worth the heartbreaks and all the letdowns? maybe i should stop searching altogether and save myself some more disappointing situations, maybe the answers will come to me more so than if i go out there blindly looking for it.
In friendship, never falter and never let them give up their goals. Always stand by their side, even if there’s nothing to gain and watch how far someone with your support can go, you’d be amazed.
In love never change who you are, always accept others as you too have been accepted and be there for them. That is the definition of love, it doesn’t judge and it doesn’t expect.
In doubt, there’s nothing that can’t be resolved with a gentle voice and patience, if all these fail? then give each other space. If it’s meant to be, this will all pass and if it isn’t. At least deep down, you know you gave it your best.
What is it that makes selfish people the way they are? is it their lashing out at the world for not getting what they want? if that’s the case, what do you do about these people? do you ignore them and hope they will get the hint or do you face them and do the exact thing that feeds their intention? i’m so sick and tired of dealing with people who put their ambitions first, from having to work 4 days with a rat of a coworker to the helicopter that’s outside my apartment hovering daily taking pictures non stop all the while annoying an entire apartment with all the vibrations from the rotors.
I wonder, at what point did these selfish people decide that what they do is acceptable and at what point did these people lose their morals? i’ll never understand how amazingly self serving some people can be, i believe in karma and all but it wouldn’t hurt for karma to teach these people a lesson.
Sometimes, when we are rushing to do something like confessing to someone about our feelings. It’s easy to think too much and freeze when we finally come face to face with that person, then we end up looking like deers to headlights all confused with a side of open mouth syndrome. Why we do that i don’t know, maybe it’s because we worked up all this fear of rejection that we fear it even more when in person. So, instead take a deep breath and think that’s what the worst that can happen? just saying. Sometimes we are given just one chance to make a good impression so make the best of it (“,)
It’s 12 at night and I need to be up in 4 hours, really tempted to just tough it out. So much on my mind, way more things that I’m disappointed about..
Isn’t it strange, how sometimes we can walk past people we initially don’t know. Then somehow along the way we connect with them through the world of social networking, before long we chat with them like we’ve known them all our lives ignoring the fact that we just met them the other day or the other week. Maybe even the other month, eventually we don’t know how we managed without them. Then in time, they either become someone close to our heart or we just remain friends. Some friends go and some stay, either way we go back to the same routine again without really realizing it like it were instinct. Life is full of wonders isn’t it?
If you could read the silence..
Would you see my feelings..
Would you see my thoughts..
Would you see my pain..
Would you see the one in my mind..
Would you understand what you see?
Have you ever wondered why some people have a stronger hold on you than others? no matter how badly they hurt or disappointed you, there’s a part of you just can’t let go of. No matter how badly you wish you could, I guess when you faithfully loved someone you can never let go. Even if they don’t necessarily feel the same way about you.
If you can’t see me beyond the surface, how will you see what I am like deep down? then if you can’t see how I am deep down how will you ever know if there’s something we can share? if you don’t see if there’s something meaningful to share then how will you ever know me?
Yes, it’s true that loving someone is more about giving than receiving. But, is it selfish to want more from someone even if they can’t give what you are hoping for? if that labels me as such. So be it, but that’s just how I see it.
What the hell’s going on with this world? economy is falling apart left right and centre, riots in a country that you would least expect it at. Wars over resources? is this really the world I brought my daughter to? is this really the true picture of the world? there’s not a day where I wake or sleep to now wondering if she’ll make friends with the wrong people or give into peer pressure. I was there the majority of my life and it wasn’t exactly easy. There were a lot if struggles that I thought I’d never make through the next day on, sometimes I have to wonder. Am I being selfish to be seeking companionship in a world so hurt? when I should be spending more time raising and guiding my daughter in the right direction? I know it’s off topic, but still. Sometimes i do wonder..
I just saw yet another new idea that they came up with, injecting growth hormones in order to give the body another chance to look and feel younger. They call it the fountain of youth? apparently! our bodies have it as we grow up and they they diminish once we are done growing, so you are supposed to inject yourself with it and hope that it works without the side effects which is possible diabetes because of increased blood sugar levels. With a side of possible internal organ enlargement, sounds great and all up to the point that it could potentially lead to worse health problems. Seriously though, what’s up with this obsession with injecting the body with stuff like these? want to feel younger and have greater energy? sleep at the right times, eat healthy , exercise regularly and most importantly? keep a positive attitude! combine all these and you are guaranteed to enjoy your results and best part is? you didn’t have to stick a needle in your arms! but that’s just my thought on it
There are times when I wonder, If the people who treat others as entertainment options know, that they eventually end up an option themselves..
Before you judge someone, know their story. You might learn something, everyone has their own reasons for the way they are. Some might be emotionally scarred from a bad experience and some may have been unheard all their lives and finally met someone to express their thoughts. There’s no way to know until you know the story, just a thought
It’s not about what you could have said or done when you’ve made a wrong decision, it’s what you could do in the time that you regret the wrong choice you made.
