day 1790 – miss fits

img_20200130_2121567574314096244526309.jpgi come to realize i generally don’t do what normal people do and do what normal people wouldn’t do. i’ve never been a follower of the norm just because; i do what i want and i follow the path that my passion leads. it has taught me it’s okay to stand out and be different. there’s a lot that i want that a normal girl doesn’t have ambitions for and doesn’t strive for. there are things any regular human being may never care about, but all i’m doing is going after things i want to achieve and believe will make myself fulfilled. i want to be able to have amiable fitness, to be play an abundance of sports, to flip and do gravity defying things and to make everyone around me happy

day 1581 – outfit of the day

img_20200203_1452257240786511345466629.jpgperhaps wearing my new oxford look-alike today gave me a special bounce in my step. today marks one year, how time flies and how things have changed since my start at hd. i’m grateful for how things have shaped up and how much i’ve grown and improved. i’ve doubted myself in so many ways and lost myself far too many times, but i somehow i carried forward even at the toughest crossroad. i look forward to all the opportunities that lie ahead knowing i’m paving my own path

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

resolution series: [five] follow your dreams

imagethere comes a time when self doubts and uncertainties creep into your mind and you wonder if what you are doing is the best thing. unlike math, there is no formula in life that calculates and spits out values or absolute answers of what is the best for you. as long as you do what your heart desires, it is the right thing to do. i feel like the last little while my life has been a roller coaster ride, sometimes soaring sky high and other times simply free falling. recently, i have been in limbo whether i have lost track of what i am doing and if that is still where my interest lies. i don’t want to be endlessly chasing something just because someone said i have to or just doing it for the sake of doing it. been putting a lot of thought into finding all the answers to what i really value, what i want to achieve in life, what i want to be known for, what legacy i want to leave behind and ultimately what path i want to take. i have gotten answers in some aspects, but i still have much to figure out. i understand these money answers will not come overnight because no one will ever have it crystal clear in its entirety and it is something one will take a lifetime to find out. john lennon once said, “everything will be okay. if it’s not okay, it’s not the end.” as long as i am progressing, i will let everything come to me and take it one step at a time, one answer at a time. stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to follow your heart, follow your dreams. it also happens to be my motto i live by

resolution series: [four] passion

image

twenties is often said to be prime time. it’s important time to figure out what you love and where your passion is at. if you don’t enjoy what you are doing, probably means it is time to rethink and explore your options. life is too short to dwell on what you must do on a daily basis, makes getting up every morning that much harder. it might be scary to realize you no longer love what you are currently doing, but it is better than realizing that now than in the next decade of your life. it may look like i knew what i wanted and where i was headed all along, but that’s not the case. it started off that way, but things change over time and sometimes the path may not be what you expected it to be. there are things i am certain about but there’s also a few things i have yet to figure out. i have a lot of self doubts and there’s no question i am afraid of failing to achieve what i set out to do, but it’s something i am working on. slowly but surely, i am beginning to find all the pieces to what i consider happiness. i like to travel, i like to eat, i like my gadget, i like the people i am surrounded by, and there’s no better place to live and do all that other than vancouver. i couldn’t be more certain about my passion and love for sports. being active is something i pride upon and definitely cannot live without. so no matter how many times i get injured or break myself, it doesn’t stop me from getting back at it even if everyone doesn’t agree with me. no matter what you do, do it with passion. life is a long journey, so make it worthwhile

resolution series: [two] decisions

image

decision making is a skill that humans slowly develop over time, but one may not notice it is not an innate skill. every child starts off with their parents doing the decision making because we are too young to make sensible choices. i have always had my parents make decisions for me no matter how big or small and that carried through to up and including university. i started later than most people and have developed too much reliance on my parents and others which may be the cause of my often indecisiveness. all i ever did was go with the flow and following the the instructions they give. but there comes a time when they have to slowly let go and let me make more of the decisions. sometimes the choices i make will be good and sometimes not so good, but its all a part of growing up and a learning curve that i must make. sure enough my parents will always be in the background giving me logical advice to consider because they’ve been through something i haven’t yet. sometimes it’s as simple as choosing the shoe i want to wear, which may seem harder than it really is. but i am slowly getting the hang of it by taking charge of my choices and paving for the road i want to travel

day 600 – pick me up

image

there are so many uncertainties in my life and so many things i cannot control. so many questions floating in my head. i can’t be certain if i have chosen the path i want, if it’s even possible, if it’s worth it and most importantly – is my passion still there. i am very scared that the passion no longer exists and i am pursuing something where my heart is not at. i am lost in darkness and not sure where i am headed. and if it’s not, it will only make me more depressed than ever. where are all the answers to get me out of this funk?? on a completely different note, happy 600th day post

twenties series: [six] forgive

image

there are many challenges in life with all the ups and downs. it’s inevitable that we will cross paths with some people that you just can’t see eye to eye with. as i meet more and more people in all walks of life, i realize the importance to keep those who make a positive impact in my life. those who provide nothing but negativity and those only considered friends with benefits shouldn’t be kept around because they don’t matter. i noticed different stages of life will call for different circles of friends, some come and go but those who really matter will stick with me forever. from time to time, arguments may arise even with the whomever deemed important to you, but the main point is don’t let that get in the way of the relationship. it’s all about learning to forgive because who knows there may be times when you will also be hoping for forgiveness; in the end no one is perfect. just remember not to blow things out of propoertion, keep everything as simple as it can be because often, it is easier to forgive and move on than to hold a grudge long term. it may seem like a tall task in the heat of the moment, but once you look back, it is the logical thing to do. life is too short to always hold grudges and it’s never a good thing to put a valued friendship in jeopardy

twenties series: [three] path

image

not everyone has the same strengths and weaknesses. everyone is born with certain gifts, talents and aspirations that will lead them down their own path. just following the a crowd and taking what is deemed a safe route isn’t going to get me anywhere in life. life is all about finding myself and understanding who i really am. that’s what makes me, me. just because i am not taking the same path as my buddies, doesn’t mean that they are not readily available to support me every step of the way. there may be lots of darkness, obstacles and uncertainties but at the end of every tunnel is light that leads to bigger and better things. getting past a stumble or struggle makes all achievements me more appreciative of the success. the decision is mine as to whether i want to go down the easy path and end up doing something i have little interest  in or the less traveled path that will allow me do the things in my realm of interest. all i have to do is accept the challenges and persevere then i am confident i will reach my destination. at the end of the day, i want to feel good taking this path and doing what i do. afterall what comes easy won’t last, what lasts won’t come easy. never divert your path in life due to others opinions

day 251 – dig deep

image

shutting myself off from the world and staying away from places that created all the frustration and uncertainties. taking all the bashing and fustigation and putting into perspective and using that to ignite the fight in me. trying to clear up my mind, refresh my soul and reenergize myself to continue moving forward in the path i have chosen. recognizing the only option i have is to dig deep and persevere, is the words of a good friend of mine
