Scamper Slowly


A Letter To Life:

Could you scamper slowly, Life?

Life, you’re going fast and time is flying at the speed of sound. I want to enjoy some extra moments with some extra time.

Life, you’re not even scampering. You’re running. Why the rush? What’s waiting for you? A new Life is going after you?

It wouldn’t be better than you. No one will accept it. The majority are afraid of what the world is becoming and wish they could go back to the simpler times. The times where love existed, where real connections existed, where real conversations lasted, where there was more real than virtual.

No need to hurry. It’s alright; you’ll always be welcomed first.

Scamper slowly, would you?

Passing


Humans set rules, fight, kill, create wars, standards, and many complications in life. But for what? More money? More power? Protecting their pride and ego?

Does it really matter?!

If you think about it, we’re just passengers in this universe. Generations have passed by and have gone, and then a new generation is created and the process is repeated. We pass by for a certain period and after that, it’s all over.

I don’t understand why people like to complicate others’ lives and their own. I don’t understand the need to be biased. I don’t understand the reason to hate. We are all the same; we are passengers in time on this planet.

Unreachable and Uncontrollable


There is something magnetizing about the unreachable and the uncontrollable.

I know I can’t control how things ended to be and I know I have to accept it and yet, I still think about it. These sneaky thoughts are partly satisfying and partly hurtful. It’s satisfying because I am holding onto the good memories that make my soul smile. Then reality knocks on the doors of my brain and daydreaming ends. This is where it hurts the most; it doesn’t exist anymore.

Tape it


It has been almost two years since I’ve tried to control my food cravings at night and to consistently exercise. The good news is that the latter is accomplished up to this date. The bad news is that some days I get weak and surrender to my temptations. The funny part is that I know I will regret it and yet, I continue with the act.

Personally, I can’t commit to a diet. It’s like taking away a piece of my freedom. I eat whatever I want as long as I don’t eat at night. Nighttime eating is my enemy and it’s when all the silent cravings awaken, sadly.

I am not trying to get a hot summer bod only but all year long.

Imagine we can eat whatever we want, snack up at any time, be it nighttime or daytime and none of that affects our health. Don’t you think the world would be a better place?! I think it would be paradise 😛

Only Positive Vibes Allowed!

In a world filled with bad things happening, there comes a time where you just need to pause. Pause for a second. Pause for a minute. Pause for an hour. Pause for a day. Just pause and reflect on yourself. Only you; forget everything and everybody else. Reflect on everything that belongs to you: Your thoughts, your feelings, your life path, your career path, your body, your needs, your wants, your desires. Write them down if you feel the need to. You’ll be surprised at how messed up your mind is. You’ll find secret thoughts that have been kept hidden even from your own conscious. You’ll find that those thoughts have been affecting who you are and how you decide and where you are at this moment.

It’s time for you to filter those thoughts down and leave only the positive ones with you. Life is difficult, tough and exhausting enough that you don’t need extra pressure from your own self. The best way to relax, even if for a few seconds, is to bring those positive vibes to your conscious mind and they will gradually help rid your soul of all the negativity.

You’ll find that after filtering your mind, you’ll lead a better, successful, happy life. You’ll be more relaxed. There will still be problems coming in. I mean, at the end of the day, you’re dealing with life. But at least, the problems will be easier to handle when you have the positivity dominating your mind and soul. If you fight anger with anger, an explosion will happen. If you fight anger with calmness, the anger will vent off until it evaporates and calms down. If you fight your problems with other problems, you’ll go crazy. But if you fight your problems with potential solutions, you’ll find the optimal solution without fretting.

Whenever you’re lost, confused, mad, angry, unhappy,…just pause! Pause, Reflect and Filter! And remember: Only Positive Vibes Allowed!

 

Young Souls


You never understand the real meaning of something until it’s too late.

I’m in my twenties now. It’s a stage in life where one should be young, wild, free and living their days like their last.

Instead, I spend my day off wasting time and being lazy. I have a full-time job Monday through Friday. After work, I either head off to the gym or spend happy hours with my co-workers. On weekends, I spend half of the day sleeping and the other half watching series, and reading. My life right now is an easy routine that I can’t get out of.

This is a time where I should be working on myself, taking risks, dating, partying, trying new talents, travelling to a new city alone,….

But the world is getting harder and harder to live in with more obstacles that threaten one’s life and places fear in our parents’ hearts. I guess living with my parents and their rules, and the requirement to take permission to decide is my obstacle. Also, being the only daughter left at home with them leaves them more attached and harder to let go, and the only way out is to leave and live alone abroad.

It’s a period in my life that is worth remembering and is about to disappear very soon.

I’m afraid I’ll leave a little too late and miss out on that part of my life.

 

30 Minutes Or More of Laughter


Three years have passed but this memory, in particular, has never left my mind. I remember this “special” day very clearly. I remember it hurt so much but felt so good at the same time. I had the best 30 minutes or more of my life with my best friend.

We were in Philosophy class in our senior year in high school and we were sitting next to each other. I remember we were so bored because we had to sit for one hour to revise the material for next week’s exam. It was a stupid assignment because it was memorizing and I knew very well that if I memorize the material now, I will forget them after the class is over. It was such a meaningless class session. So my friend got bored and decided to ask the teacher a “philosophical” question.

And something weird happens to me… A small burst of laughter gets out and the teacher shoots me an angry look so I held it in (but not for too long). After the teacher left, I let out a few giggles. My friend gave me a “what-is-wrong-with-you” look and starts giggling along.

I giggle harder and harder until bursts of laughter are released. We were both laughing so hard, tears rushing down our cheeks, our abdomen aching and our mouths exhausted from intense laughter and effort to make it stop.

We have completely lost it that we took no notice of our whereabouts and that the whole class was silent and staring at us. When we looked up, we were about to cool it off until the teacher said: “When you are done laughing, maybe you could share what was it that you were laughing at.” And then that was when we laughed the hardest; my whole body was shaking with laughter.

After 30 minutes or more, my friend tells me that we have to stop and that we pushed the line. It was hard to stop. I tried but short bursts kept coming out until I cooled down gradually.

After class, we continued what was left from our beautiful and aching moment and started wondering what we were laughing at. I started it but I had no idea why; it just came out.

My friend and I laughed for 30 minutes or more on nothing; just boredom laughter!
