The reality is that it’s easier to be inspired than it is to create an original idea and we are hardwired to take the path of least resistance. It’s easier to jump onto a design inspiration gallery site than it is to sit down with a blank sheet of paper and a pencil. It’s easier to follow a pattern than it is to test-drive new options. It’s easier to copy a style or idea that works than try something that might miss the mark or outright fail. Above all, it’s cheaper mentally for us to rally around what’s already been done and emulate it.
"Say what?", this was my reaction that pops outta my head when I first heard this line. Well, most likely when I tune into my FM radio while driving, this has been one of the top 30 hit songs that the VJ is saying "you don’t wanna miss". Since I drive almost everyday, it takes me now to my last song syndrome. This song. Now I know that it is not the usual lyric. It has puzzled me out. It is corresponded with a flattered feeling. "I only miss you when I”m breathing…I only need you when my heart is beating.." Obviously but indirectly conveyed, that person misses him/her all the time, since everytime, he/she breathes throughout his/her life. It’s like a metaphor, in which the breathing part is an image of representing a less tangible thing of how does missing works. But then, here’s the catch: the word "only". Gosh, it threw me into a mental state of uncertainty for quite awhile. Yet then again, this song is sweet as!
kapag may nagalit sa’yo, alam mo yung rason kung bat siya nagalit.Kapag alam mong ikaw yung may kasalanan, magsosorry ka. Tapos after nun, maglalaro na ulit kayo.
Ngayong matanda ka na,
kapag may nagalit sa’yo, wala kang idea kung bakit. Itatry mong iapproach, hindi ka papansinin. Malalaman mo, may sinasabi na palang mga masasamang bagay sa iba na tungkol sa’yo. At dahil mataas ang pride niyo pareho, hahayaan niyong ganun na lang at hindi niyo na itatry pang ayusin.
Bakit ganun? Ang mga matatanda, nag-mamature lang ang katawan. Pero ang utak, kumikitid. Ang mga bata, kahit wala pa masyadong naiintindihan, naka-focus ang isip nila sa pag-piplease sa mga taong nakalibot sa kanila.
Kung titignan mo, parang mas mature pa ang mga bata kesa sa matatanda. Kasi ang mga bata, mas kaya nilang idaan lahat sa pag-uusap. Mas kaya nilang magpatawad. Hindi pride ang pinapairal.
Time and time again I see this all over my dash. There are so many people here who think by just simply asking for a good year, it will happen. I can assure you that, that won’t happen if you just sit around all day wishing for the year to be good. Do you want 2012 to be good to you? Be good to it and be good in everything you do. Get out there and do something with your life. Do things you’ve never done before. Experience new things. Climb new heights. Tell someone how much they mean to you. Give someone a well deserved hug. Stare at the stars. Smile because you can. Laugh until you’re gasping for air. Go over the top, be corny, be cheesy who cares. Go for long walks and explore with someone who you wouldn’t mind getting lost with. Sing in the rain, dance in it. Take too many photos, print them and stick them on the wall, in a book or give them to the people who shared that moment with you. Hold their hand, make them feel safe. Appreciate the simple things in life like how summer breezes feel as it moves your hair, the way music soothes your soul, the beauty of all the colours on this Earth, the way sand feels in between your toes, the rush of euphoria on your first kiss with someone. I think people are too focused on their happy endings, we often forget about the story, what’s right in front of us, what we have right now and what we should be appreciating. I can’t promise you that all this will give you a perfect year, because that’s impossible. You will encounter the inevitable hardships and problems will get in your way but I can reassure you that you can look back and know that the year was worth it. You want the year to be good to you? Make it worth it. “How?” you ask?
It’s quite simple really. Do what makes you happy.
“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. Let it come in. We think we don’t deserve love, we think if we let it in we’ll become too soft. But a wise man named Levine said it right. He said, ‘Love is the only rational act.’”—Tuesdays With Morrie - Mitch Albom
Tama nga ang sabi nilang masaya sa una lang. Ok na ok talaga eh, kapag bago. Yung tipong kelangan mo akong makausap kahit ilang araw sa isang linggo. Hindi rin ako mapakali habang hinihintay ko ang message mo. Let’s face reality. Habang tumatagal, nawawala ang tamis. Habang tumatagal, nawawala ang sabik na makausap ka. Hindi malaman kung anung dahilan ng pagkawalang-gana. Ganun ba talaga? O talagang sadyang di lang tinadhana? Sabi nga nila, as long as one is trying, the other one is staying. Wala eh, kung dating halos dalawang araw sa isang linggo, naguusap tayo. Ngaun, sa sobrang dalang, isang araw na lang sa isang buwan. Ang masaklap, tuluyan ka na sigurong mawawala. Malabo, sa tingin ko nga wala na ngang patutunguhan to. Wala na rin akong intensyong ipagpatuloy to. Masaya na rin ako na nakilala ka. Salamat sayo,salamat.. salamat :)
