Basic

Few years back, I read a book All I Really Need to know I Learned in Kindergarten written by Robert Fulghum. Cliche as it may seem and no matter how old we get, all the things we learned in life were really taught when we were young. That life, is not at all complicated, it is just a matter of living it simply and be content with its simplicity. I wanted to share with you these thoughts and help try to go back to basics and still, be happy.

Share everything.
Play fair.
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Flush
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life — learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every everyday some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.

 

 

Thanks for reading. Cheers to living a better and simpler world!

 

Happy anniversary to me! ūüôā

If there’s a more terrible word to describe how bad the traffic is, that would be it. Walking has become more than just a habit. Walking gave you a better (worse) way to do a lot of thinking. What’s going on? You don’t know exactly but everytime you are with that person, it’s something. There’s something in it that you really can’t figure out. You can’t help but be drenched in with a ton of thoughts. Other times, you wished it never happened. Silly you, you let it all slide. But you regret not a single thing. Felt like the first time in forever. You never thought that these emotions exist in you, still. After all the heartaches you’ve been through, in a snap, hope came alive. Love came alive, in your mind. It felt all real…in your dreams. All in your dreams. You never thought it could still be possible…that it’s possible to have those feelings again. You were someone unexpected but everything about you was all worth it. You made something impossible possible. ¬†A deep and genuine thank you to everything. Thank you. You are¬†one good soul. It is without a doubt something beautiful with you(always). Sure, it was fun. You wished¬†time would go slow or it would stop to be with you longer. No matter how happy you are, it¬†still boils down to that melancholic feeling, silly girl. But…you wanted more..wished to know better but you’re scared he might not want it.¬†Scared that you are ¬†not as willing as she is. Scared that neither of you is willing to give in. Scared that it might not withstand time. You’re just scared with everything. Scared to everything. Just when you thought it’s your turn, everything will just turn upside down. Just when you thought you are ready, you start to falter. Just when you thought someone would¬†be there for you, you start to doubt. And be scared even more. It’s like finally having a new book unfortunately and just like the old times, both of you belong on the same book but will never ever be on the same page. Sad. It’s just completely two different worlds. Or simply, he’s just not into it, or not to you so, what can you do? Nothing. Just smile and quietly walk away, as always. It’s nothing new to you. Well, you wished it’s something different this time but.. but that’s how it is. That’s how it should be done best. Deep inside, you were hoping it would go deeper and farther but maybe, that’s the best offer fate can give you. You even hoped that when the time is right and you are both ready, everything will just fall into its place. For now, all you can have is temporary happiness that is¬†sure to mark in you for the rest of your life. You hope he does, too. ¬†It was definitely¬†sweet and one for the books. For all its beauty, all you can utter is a sincere thank you. It ¬†made you alive again.

Thanks for reading. Cheers!

solitude

at the end of the day,  you are still alone

you wanted to give in but a lot of things are holding you back

what have you done? for her to go this crazy

what have you done? for her to tremble

truth is

¬†you haven’t done anything

you were your perfect self

so was she

it ended before it began

deep down inside

 

there’s something you were wishing

wishing it would stay this way

……….

Jeepney Chronicles 8

 

It was something out of ordinary, as usual. Swimming thoughts, that is. Can someone really be prepared for it? Is that the reason why it is called unexpected? A testament that things happen when you least expect it. You don’t know why you were there but, you are there. ¬† ¬†You are present. Present at the moment. There’s no turning back. There’s no holding back. ¬† It was like living in the dream. A dream in reality. It was blurry at first, but, as soon as you peer through it, everything just became clear. Crystal clear. Surreal. Something you’ve been desiring for the longest time. Although, it was not something that you really need but, for all those strange reasons, you went after it. You let your guard down and give in to it. It’s like entering a different dimension. It was magnificent. Fireworks everywhere. Beautiful sights worth capturing. Something you never thought would happen but you were there, diving into it. It was a party, after all. All you can hear is beautiful music. Humming tunes that made you sing. All you can see is a beautiful sight. Everything around you is just worth adoring. All you can feel is extreme joy. Extreme joy you wished of staying…forever. Such a beautiful feeling. Simply divine. What a joy to be in this moment. Magical…indeed it was. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Something that you wished to hold onto but for now, that’s the best you got.

Time to wake up now.

Thanks for reading. Cheers! 

Fine Line

There’s a fine line between loving¬†and hating

There’s a fine line between giving up and holding on

There’s a fine line between wanting to know the truth and leaving everything as it is

There’s a fine line between wanting and holding it back

There’s a fine line between wandering¬†and staying

There’s a fine line between fighting for what you want and just letting it go

A clearer fine line between  wanting to move forward and being stuck

A clearer fine line between being content with what you know and nurturing yourself

There’s a fine line between criticizing and¬†helping and motivating to be better

There’s a fine line between being humble and being boastful

There’s a fine line between being grateful for the things that you have and complaining for the things that you don’t have

There’s a fine line between arrogance and confidence

There’s a fine line between expressing your¬†thoughts¬†and keeping mum about it

There’s a fine line between admitting your mistake and never be sorry at all

There’s a fine line between creating something new and covering up for what it’s supposed to be

There’s a fine line between¬†keeping the real ones and creating new relationships

There’s a fine line between giving in to your craving and sticking to what you are supposed to have

There’s a fine line between telling and uncovering the truth and sticking to lies

There’s a fine line between respect and fear

There’s a fine line between communicating and not talking at all

There’s a fine line between showing the real you and following the crowd

There’s a fine line between joining the bandwagon and sticking to what makes your heart kilig

There’s a fine line between being at your own pace and pressuring yourself just because everyone is at it

There’s a fine line between being the life of the party and being a wallflower

There’s a fine line between¬†keeping the faith¬†and being discouraged

There’s a fine line between standing out and trying to fit in

The choice is always yours to make.

wonderland

in the midst of solitude   

there you came

uninvited

there you were

welcomed

it’s like a wonderland

a dream in reality

wishing it would stay this way

wishing it would be this way

after the ecstacy

solitude greets you

solitude embraces you

and just like that

worlds drift apart
