A P P R E C I A T I O N

Perhaps if you Love fiercely, boldly and with no apologies. Love unconditionally – the good, the bad, the ugly and everything in between. Love without hesitation, fear or mistrust. Love to the point of madness, leaving no room for doubt. Love kindly, always seeing the good, recognizing that though we are fundamentally flawed, everyone deserves… Continue reading A P P R E C I A T I O N

2016 Mediocre Goals

I write new year resolutions every year. And very much like you, I don’t fulfil very many of them but instead, change the date and recycle them for the next year. This is the only moment where I practice GoGreen! This year, I want to set more attainable goals. Mediocre but realistic. Lower standards so… Continue reading 2016 Mediocre Goals

Stop chasing the wrong things and you’ll give the right things a chance to catch you.

1. Stop spending time with the wrong people. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth.… Continue reading Stop chasing the wrong things and you’ll give the right things a chance to catch you.

Don’t lose what is real chasing behind what only appears to be

“I guess our parents stayed together simply because they didn’t have 7,000 other people following them at their disposal when their relationship or marriage got hard. Nowadays when our relationships get hard, we can just log on and get high off this false sense of security, appreciation and understanding. We value our worth based on followers, comments and inbox messages filled with colorful words that have no depth. Meanwhile the person who loves you when there is no filter on your face becomes an option and attractively filtered followers become priority. Don’t lose what is real chasing what only appears to be.” 

Unfortunately it’s still a sad reality that social media and technology play a large part in many failed relationships these days. Whoever said this (author is unknown) could see that whenever people are “bored” in their relationships or things aren’t going as good as they could be, people get right on the internet and get caught up and consumed in the followers, messages, and comments. Some of us get that false sense of security and appreciation by looking at all the “likes” on our pictures or followers on twitter, while others cruise profiles of other men and women and “oogle” them. Fantasizing about what a relationship with people we don’t even know “would” be like.

PS: Although that last sentence sounds like me and my fictional boyfriends from various books. Heh. 🙂

Really short and random post because
I stumbled across a really great quote.
Also, because I missed blogging from my laptop.

How to ruin your life

You’d think that by now people would understand that life is not a straight line. Life is not a set timeline of milestones. Sometimes it is okay if you don’t finish school, get married, find a job that supports you, have a family, make money, and live comfortably all by this age, or that age.… Continue reading How to ruin your life

Suicidal

If you didn’t know, the WiFi on my laptop isn’t working for some reason and it might be awhile before its fixed, and because my laptop isn’t working, I wasn’t planning to blog until its back on and running. But there’s an important issue I can’t ignore and must address immediately. Earlier today, I made… Continue reading Suicidal
