day 1086 – bruce quote

thinking of something to get myself going again. this man says some very powerful things that i would like to live by day in day out. in bruce lee’s wise words, always be yourself, express yourself and have faith in yourself. it’s a tough stretch, but we have each other’s back to fight through all battles. sometimes a quiet and simple evening brings out the quality of our time and lightens up the mood. just remember tough times don’t last, tough people do

吳若希 – 我沒有傷心

i made this long weekend the deadline to make a big decision as to which path i wanted to take. i think i gave him enough chances and now i’ve made up my mind that it just wasn’t meant to be. the decision is made and i am happy i did because i will be able to live with that rather than having it linger on any longer. being on the edge of a relationship is tough, but i will be alright because love isn’t life’s entirety; life must go on. i am sure there comes a time when i will cross path with someone that was meant to be

the many walks of life has brought me to many people, all of which have enriched my life in unique ways. every person has brought something different to the table but each of you have touched my heart one way or another. we took some chances and gave it everything. i cherish the memories and time we had and don’t regret any of that was created and shared. i am an individual that locks up a lot inside and doesn’t let my thoughts and feelings out unless i feel it’s the right person who can crack the shell to make me feel infatuation. there are some i really enjoy spending time with and feel comfortable being around where i can say whatever my heart desires. with these people, i feel an odd sense of security that changes all complexity. i regretfully say these selected few where we are highly compatible in many ways but can only wish but not progress beyond. it just cannot happen for so many complicated reasons i cannot and will not explain. it just wasn’t meant to be, our fate was destined to remain friends, and good friends we are. i look forward those that i will encounter and the chances i will take. if something was meant to be, it will happen. at the right time, with the right person, for the best reason

there’s never one solution to a problem or one route to a destination. different people will have different takes on things and often try to influence you in many ways so to make you see things their way, do things their way. it’s good to keep your eyes and ears open, but sometimes you just have to take a stand for what you believe in and stick with what you think you want to achieve. disregard what the majority of population thinks, so what if the rest of the world sees things differently. i learn that through the years you have to take into consideration people’s advice based on their knowledge and past experience, but there comes a time when you have to make a judgement call as to what you think is right and how you want to deal with a situation. there’s no perfect way of doing one thing. know that it is okay to be different because that’s what makes each person unique. find my own perspective, don’t let others decide and speak for me because it is my life to live. in the end no matter if the outcome is good or bad, know that i will be able to accept the outcome. that is precisely how we grow as an individual

day 542 – bring it on

i am so excited to be breaking in my blue flyknits at the gym because i am slowly trying to retire my pink free runs which have been through thick and thin. back at it bright and early this morning, even a sore throat and cough can’t keep me out from a saturday morning workout. i think i will feel more energized after sweating it out and getting some blood pumping again

attitude matters

the need to be healthy leads to better everything; i am sure its proven by science, but i have also found out through my own experience. exercise is no doubt a big part of my life and should never be neglected or abandoned no matter what happens. the ultimate goal is to be well rounded and happy with myself in all aspects of life. finding the balance in all direction is far from a walk in the park, i am still working on that. it’s not going to happen over night but i am doing my due diligence to finding ways to get there because i  know that’s the quality of life i want to have

day 488 – come and go

a month of craziness indeed. november came and went with a blink of an eye. when my parents were out of town, the month had especially more of ups and downs filled adventures, fun, mysteries and injuries. the amount of booze i had exceeds many, the amount of bruise also skyrocketed, the amount of expenses also crept up and the amount of freedom i had fell through the roof. the temperature dropped immensely, even the first of snowfall came to the city before november’s end. it’s been an interesting month and a very good experience that maybe perhaps i am ready to enter and inherit another type of lifestyle, of course, without sacrificing my current

許廷鏗 – 面具

this canto singer has an interesting background. this is another tune that tops my playlist and occasionally deserves to be put on repeat just because i like how closely the lyrics resemble reality of how people operate in the real world. what you see on the surface is usually not the whole truth and can only been felt once you put your mask away. why must everyone live with a mask?? why is it so important to sugar coat everything when we can just live freely and be ourselves??

twenties series: [fifteen] issues

after living for twenty years, you ought to know that life is full of challenges similar to a game of baseball that will throw fast balls, knuckle balls and curve balls whenever you least expect it. learn that no matter how many times you fail and how hard you fall, you just have to get up off your butt and attempt again. i have learned that i am not flawless and there are many things that needs improvement, but i am willing to make the changes required to be the person i want to become. still working on getting rid of all negative vibe and set a good examples for the younger ones i take under my wings. in the end, my ultimate goal is to be a positive influence to the people around me and leave a lasting finger print on their lives in some form. i will set my mind on doing what i want to achieve and prove all those doubters who once said there are things i cannot do. remember to always keep your eye on the ball, your head in the games and everything else will take care of itself. no one is born perfect, no one will ever come close to being perfect but those who try to be who they are will be the happiest. in other words, just be who you are and everything else will take care of itself

 

…and that wraps up my twenties series. hope you enjoyed reading up on what my thoughts are as much as i enjoyed writing them. hope to do more series soon

 

 

twenties series: [twelve] childhoodness

the transition of growing up from stage to stage is not an easy one. being a kid was easy but we wouldn’t even realize it at that time. during the first decade, there’s no need to stress, no need to worry and every day passed by like it was the best day of our lives. went to school, played with friends, had some extracurricular activities and went home happy and carefree. stepping into the second decade was a tougher because we realize there are added responsibilities and the acknowledgement of what stress is. school gets busier, homework increases, extracurricular activities piles on, not to mention drama will occur, relationships becomes unclear and the need to start thinking about career path. entering the third decade of the life, formally known as adulthood, is the toughest yet. school gets tougher, every exam and paper is like a do or die situation, extracurricular activities continues, love life has its ups and downs, and you feel like your career is trapped in fog and there’s no turning back. there are those moments when nothing is going right, everything happens out of the unexpected and everyone seems to be against you and you think long and hard and question whether you made the right decisions five years ago. i now understand why people will occasionally go in the quarter life crisis. i don’t know what is in store for me the rest of this decade and the next ones to come, but i am set to make take the positives out of situations and make it the best possible experience
