"If you choose to do something, then you shouldn’t say its a sacrifice because nobody forced you to do it."
Read this statement back in Korea last year and have not stop pondering about it since. 60 work hours per week, every day can be a TGIF yay, mistaking busyness for laziness… It all boils down to the bad junk and good funk we feed our mind. And hence our soul. Whatever the works, may d motivation of love always be d center? Sometimes, the most painful decisions may bring some tears in the beginning.. But it usually ends up as an awesomely good sweet decision in hindsight. Just like cutting onions up… Always tear jerking at the beginning; yet always tasting so sweet after some time of cooking. It brings a good flavor. If life is too much of a tear jerker (usually on d heart), hang in there man! A good decision will always get more flavorful with time and effort.
Yesterday, I was crazy enough to admire the moon. Checking the moon out after a busy or long day has this therapeutic effect.. Plus a run or two did do some good. It has been about 2 months since I returned. Still feel foreign at times in this familiar land. I should share more sincere stuff.. But this heart is a tricky one. Sometimes, I feel jaded after catching up with half a year of bad news’ ; the most recent one being a distant coworker of d same age dying in the most tragic way possible..just right after V day ended. On the other spectrum; Many times I feel honored and grateful for old friends to remember me even when they don’t need to. Or new friends who are so open in accepting my flaws and all. After all the noise and occasional overcomplicated modern living habits, I really appreciate the simplicities of life. If life means enjoying one another’s company over coffee or tea, sticking around to build one another up, or just hanging around better people..that is bliss like no other too aye? Bliss in simplicity terms is how I still feel excited when the moon appears is front of my vision. And simply be in bliss- irregardless of the reasons or rhymes. Blissful, let’s.
Felt it was necessary to have some chalk fun before I go crazily insane. Some visual inspiration..before life’s serious overwhelming business.
Oh dear momma please be as chill as a ice when you view my masterpieces. The walls could always be repainted but my mind can’t… Heh, thanks for your understanding! It needs some creative renewal. On a lighter note, Glad to be back! Stay tunnnneed to what’s next~
Have so many stories to share. But let me share the sweetest story I heard earlier.
A foreigner in Japan was drunk. He was sleeping on the public bench. Concerned for his safety, a stranger came by; sat beside him till he woke up from his drunken slumber.
That was some time ago. Now, they are still friends.
Like the kind stranger, I need double magic eyes to see the obvious beauty trapped in the messy ugly. Thanks for the kind reminder. I really needed it. ***
In an attempt to wake myself up from 5 hours of sleep, I did a 40 seconds dance-while brushing my teeth. Hours ago. Swallowed some toothpaste by chance while boogie wooging..It was so hilarious I thought everyone should try this once. It totally woke me up.
On a side note, I am living well. Fret not, my hilarious friends and families.***
