This morning, I feel genuinely lucky waking up on a sunny day, drinking a crystal-clear glass of water, breathing clean air, and having my clothes clean so easy. Well, not everyone is this lucky. Life is so easy (or so much easier compared to others).
Many are always complaining about what doesn’t work. We can see very well that tiny red dot of ink on the pure white piece of cloth, but not realize how clean majority of it still is.
It’s more easy focusing on what’s wrong.
On times, traffic may be really heavy that you want to scream, “I am late for this important event even though I woke up so early not to.” Have you asked why is it so? There may be a road accident somewhere near but have you took time to rejoice that you aren’t hurt, that you are still breathing, that it can easily be you who got injured or died? You are lucky, you just didn’t realize it. Every thing, even the smallest one contribute to a cause-effect system we live in. There are incidences when the big surprising things are hidden in the smallest of things we can’t see.
I take this time to thank God, or this bigger Persona that keeps me breathing. I take this time to pause and be glad even with the tiniest details. I take this time to appreciate life and how precious it is. It is pure luck that I got born instead of another one, considering millions of other probabilities in the first place.

People say silence is harmless. It does nothing.
Silence is a loud scream. It is a powerful voice that resonates within us.
Every one has their own share of busy days full of noise that echoes through one’s life:
It’s those days when you’ll sleep at 3am doing tasks then wake up 5am prep up for the next sunrise-to-sunset. Those days were filled with voices of people telling you to do this and that. Days, when you were soo tired of the f*cking traffic that eats your time when it should be allotted to stuff that matters more. You feel restless, took a 30-minute power nap at lunch break. You’ll feel relived, feel energized just by that but still, something somewhere inside you feels restless of this day-to-day
If you think you “talk enough” but there still is this void inside you, sometimes, “talking enough” is talking too much. You are just using your vocal chords too much.There were times when all you need is the silent bench on that park near your house. A time to pause, a time to observe, a time to rethink, a time to internalize, a time to appreciate.
at the park, thinking about random stuff
Have you gone to The Quiet Place? Try it. You’ll surely come back.
“A story is told as much by silence as by speech.”
C’mon! A lot of people are just like me.
I’m the type of person who cleans my typically cluttered study/work desk just whenever I have the “time” to do it.You can identify that “time” as to when 1.) I can’t find the things I need anymore, or 2.) someone else is gonna come in my room (just imagine the stress it’ll give to the one who’ll see the mess). OTL
Why do we act like that? One thing is that there are soo many things to do besides the boring task of cleaning up one’s tab.” Hey, I’ll see my things anyway. They are just there, er, somewhere there. At least I have a hint where it’s relatively at.”
Know what? Finally, I got tired of always seeing it in such a
system that only I, would recognize. Hmm, I understand its elaborate pattern *sigh* almost always. Now, I’m ready to change the habit of arraying things up with no particular logical sequence at all and YES, it feels rockin’ great. \m/
I just realized how your tab can represent how you walk your life. That simple task can mean more that you think it can stand for. If your desk is cluttered like mine, can you observe how it slows you down whenever you are in a hurry and you can’t find the things you know were “there”. One more thing is that aside from cluttered desks, you also have an unorganized bed, school notebook, computer desktop, and bag. Even those things that matter like your schedule, plans, and life are somewhat in a state that needs some order.
Who doesn’t want a waaaay easier life?
