Chasing and chasing.

Chasing and chasing.
Random feathers to fill up this post.


There are times when you just have to give up something because it is not meant for you. No matter how hard you push yourself to it, if it's not for you, then it's not. I had this dream. I pushed myself to it, because I used to believe that if my desire for it is just too much, I can get it. I believed that if I just work hard for something, I can get. I depend so much to myself and sacrificed a lot of things just to reached that wondrous dream. I can't help it. There's a point in your life when you'll be blinded with your dreams. You will sacrifice lots of things just to achieve that dream. You traveled miles, invested sweat and blood. You have actually invested so much for it. Until that dream just flew away and you can't chaste it anymore. I got a word from the above to leave that dream because it's not for me. At first I didn't listened. I love it so much, just so much to surrender it. But then again, His ways are His ways. I'm just a human being, and I have my limits. I guess I loved my dreams so much that I forgot that there is something more for me. What I mean is that He has something more for you. And that something is greater than your dreams. For what you want is not really what you deserve, because you may deserve to have more. Then my consciousness reached me. If I had just reached that dream and flew away, I might be lost and might never find my way home again. My dreams, it has flown to a land full of uncertainties. You know, it's also good to take risks, but you must learn when to take it and when to let it go, because if you take the risks blindly, you might just lost everything that you have. You must know how to balance things because you might be end up investing to a bankrupt bank. 

I know it's confusing but don't believe so much in yourself. Believing in yourself is good, but too much is bad. It may create disappointments and frustrations in your life. Learn to be open minded. Learn to look at your left and at your right, rather than focusing too much looking forward. There could be something more in other directions than on what you are seeing right now. You might as well consider looking to other directions, because the answer could just be behind you. The thing is, letting go of something is not always bad. because once a door closes, another door opens. You can never tell, that door could be the answer to your questions.

The art of uniqueness.

The art of uniqueness.

Just a random tree that I painted last week.

Every one of us is born to be judgmental. No one has escaped this harsh truth. As a person born in the 21st century, I’m a living witness to this, I mean you are too. Everyone is born to be unique, to have matchless kind of thinking and decisions-making. Where you are right now and where you are going is rooted to the decisions you made way back. You may not notice it but it is.  I’m pretty sure that the way we decide for ourselves is distinct to us. Everyone has their own understanding of the world and of the situation. Some things might be regarded “essential”, but to others it’s a trash. Some people may view something as an opportunity to prosper, but others may think of it as waste of time. There are people who would think that your technical knowledge will make you flourish, but others would think that how you dwell with others will make you a successful person. Again, there are a number of definition of the word “successful”, for one is incomparable with the other. People who argue with one another and proving the other is wrong is like a fool arguing with a fool. They are both fools and so the argument goes on and on. Until they will reach a point when they will get tired and stop. Well, why not just open your mind to their perspective? In that manner, you may learn something beneficial for you.

In our lives, especially in this generation, we are given a never-ending-list of choices. Sometimes it confuses us and we tend to pressure ourselves to choose what the best is. After sometime, we may reach a point where we realize that the one that we chose is actually not the best choice. It may directed you into a bad situation then you’ll end up blaming yourself for being such a foolish person for not choosing this and that. Well actually, there’s no easy way to be victorious. Every success is a product of failures and a hundred of wrong decisions. Because every failure that you get from your decision is not actually “failure”, because in every given situation, there is something to be learned from it. That “something” that you learned will actually lead you to a successful path. Therefore none of your decision is actually “wrong”.

We judge based on how we look at the given situation, never thinking the opposite side of the coin. There are a number of ways to cross a mountain, it’s just that not everyone is compatible with hiking, some people would prefer riding a helicopter or whatsoever. Then again, when we reached that certain point in our lives, it really doesn't matter how we did it, what matters is we did it.

How about you readers? Can you relate this article based on your life experiences? I will be glad to know it!

Who am I?

Who am I?


I've been spending my life for so long in this world. I've been to places that I never thought I would visit. I've met hundreds and thousands of people. I get to interact with people having different personalities and perspective in life. I thought I knew everything, until somebody asked me, Who are you? If I am to ask you, what would you answer? It's pretty basic. You would state your name, age and where you live. But, who are you really?

It's not really not that easy to tell someone who you are. You just don't know where to start. Most of the times, we just say what we think is essential. We ignore those things that really matter. Well, that's how we live these days. In this fast faced world, we often sacrifice a lot of important things because we tend to focus on a something that we forgot to look at other things. We only have this 24 hours per day and most of the time, we spend it working or studying. We are like robots that everything has to be scheduled. Can't we just go back to the old days where things are a lot simple? In order to live, we have to work hard to earn money to be rich. But, we forgot the quality of our lives, and we forgot the things that matters the most. We are blinded by money and riches. We forgot what we really need. Our lives are routine, that sometimes you would forgot who you were before when you were still a child. As a child, everything is simple. As a child, happiness is just simple.

In this generation, "selfies" is trending in social media. We focus more in ourselves, but what if I am to ask you, "Who are you?". Do you really know yourself? This is the kind of question that I love to ponder upon, because sometimes the answer is the question itself. 

How about you readers? Who are you?
