“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and no for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Perhaps it’s good to have a beautiful mind, but a better gift to discover is a beautiful heart. Nothing compares to a beautiful conversation with a beautiful mind, but nothing comes close to someone who has a heart at peace.
What’s better after 3 a.m. The heavier the eyelids, the sincerer the words, and silence is not awkward, it’s tranquil. Sometimes the heart knows things that the mind could never explain, and sometimes the mind accepts things that the heart can never.
It’s easy to strip off your clothes and have sex with someone, but what’s equally insane, is stripping off the curtains hiding your soul to someone special.. Well, that’s really being naked, free from stress and lies.
“To me, beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are.”
I constantly feel like I’m at war with myself.. My mind, my thoughts.. One thing I’ve learn in my life, it’s to fight, fight for what’s right, what I believe in, and what is important to me. Of course, most importantly, fight for those who you love. And with that said, fight for everyone. Never forget to compliment and tell someone how much they mean to you, that’s when you learn to outlook upon their flaws.
It’s funny how sometimes all we need is a line from a song or a quote from a book or movie to realise how we really feel and all we needed was a smile from a friendly stranger, a good cup of tea, a walk in the rain or even just an old song to briefly put us back together before we fall apart all over again.
Today on the 15th of July 2016, I woke up to yet another terrorist attack. It was the 14th in France, as they were celebrating their National Day, well.. Their liberty was cruelly snatched away when more than 80 innocent blood was shed.. Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic. Of course these events are still tragic. They still hurt like all hell and there is still seemingly no reason or purpose behind them. It still seems unfair and unjust how bad things happen to good people. Life goes on, and that is not an excuse for you to stop smiling.
Have you ever had one of those moments when something devastating happens in your world and it feels like the rug has been ripped out from under you? Me too.. I lost my father in 2012, right before my major exams, but I’ve learn to discipline myself a lot. I’ve learned to put on a fatherly figure to younger ones before it isn’t pleasurable when someone you once loved so much suddenly vanished from your life. Throughout this time, I have also heard and learned about others who have experienced tragedy, and despite this, can see so much beauty in the lessons and life events that follows.
No smile compares to the ones that are genuine, especially when you were hurt and ripped apart. A rainbow will always appear right after the rain, keep your heads up, and keep an eye out for it.
It’s the 16th July~ !! Happy Birthday bub !! ❤ Doubt she’ll be reading it though.. Oh well~
