I believe there’s a reason for each one of us to be here in this world. Not only humans, but every being has its role in life’s sustainability. We’re all bits and pieces of God’s creations who are co-existing harmoniuously for a balance. But sometimes our contributions may seem too subtle to be noticed.
Even if my existence doesn’t create a huge impact on how the world runs; I must and I will continue to benefit others around me by being who I am. A person who cares about putting a smile on someone’s face.
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
No one knows that exact moment when the heart will stop beating and the rest of the organs will shut down. Whether we like it or not we’re living on borrowed time. And not only this life is on loan, everything else that we own are not ours to start with. They can be taken away without any warnings in just a matter of seconds. We should be grateful with each passing moment when time is showing its mercy by allowing us to be here; living and enjoying what we love.
People say all sorts of things
Just to fill the void
I keep fiddling with my rings
Trying not to be annoyed.
Some are genuinely nice
While others are clearly not
They freely give advice
But I’m not easily bought.
My poor head is pounding
As the chatters continue
This fake smile is thinning
Though none takes the cue.
How sad if my end is here
Drowning in a mindless chat
It’s not death that I fear
But the fact of where I’m at.
I’d rather be lost in solitude
Having silence for company
Enduring with great fortitude
Away from chattery tyranny.
Every story has a different beginning with an unknown ending. Just like every journey charts a different path and faces unthinkable fate. Knowing this should stop us from carelessly judging others, or categorizing them in simplified boxes. Although life is simple, experiences are not- the twists and turns makes us unique. You’ve never walked in that person’s shoes, neither would you ever get to do so.
An observant eye and a compassionate heart, accompanied by a helping hand. Though help is never expected, it’s gratefully welcomed in times of need.
When you start loving what you already have… there’s absolutely nothing more that you ever need.
A fulfilled life is an outlook, not a requirement.
Being content with who you are, where you are and what you have.
Contentment is not about accepting a mediocre life. It comes from knowing that certain things are meant to be just so, in attaining true happiness.
Making progress, albeit rather slowly and too tiny to mention. A little something is better than nothing.
The smell of nature rejuvenates the senses and cleanses the soul. A wonderful start to the day.
When empathy is present, you know you are (or trying to be) a decent human being. Don’t be hard on others because life is hard as it is.
A fit and healthy body with every single part functioning effectively; and well supported by a balanced emotion.
Legs. Walking. Moving about without help. Free to roam this world and experience life to the fullest.
Living a busy life without putting your needs first is not good for your health and morale. Miraculously there are quick pick-me-ups like chocolate, coffee and online shopping.
