Don’t be Fooled by New Years

2011-year-resolution-400x400

It’s New Years Eve! I’m sure many have already listed out their resolutions and self-promises to fulfill in 2015. I’m sure many are eager to wave the goodbye to 2014 and welcome the coming new year. I realize that people speak of “years” as if it is a “place”, like they are individual houses that we step in and out of. eg: 2008 was a bad year, let’s never go there again! or I can’t wait until 2014 is over so we can move on to 2015! When we enter the threshold of a “new house”, we welcome ourselves, and we get a false uplifting that this “place” is somehow different and better. But a year is merely a passage of time, and time cannot be categorized as houses we can move out of. The truth is, New Year’s day is just another tomorrow. Hoping for a better tomorrow is very misleading because tomorrow never comes. Continue reading

All You Need is Love – Quote Review 2

Blog - Quote Picture

As we are nearing Christmas day, I thought it would be appropriate to share a hopeful quote for the holidays. It’s that time again where love is in the air and we are reminded of our family, friends and our blessings. For a magical moment, we forget about all our hardships and everything feels perfect.

But it’s important to count our blessings and to remember that we own the greatest gift of all — that we are loved. Here is a quote by someone I have developed a deep respect for:

If you enter this world knowing you are loved, and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with. – Michael Jackson

Be Careful with Your Words – Quote Review 1

Blog - Quote Picture

As I stated in my previous post about quotes, I will start reviewing some featured quotes in my room to share the enlightenment, instead of doing what I’ve been doing all these years – which was hiding them in my room. In person, I don’t usually share my thinking until prompted, and as a consequence, I notice that very few people actually know me. And because all my thoughts are kept as thoughts and never spoken, I confuse myself with who I am sometimes. This is why I blog; to turn my thoughts into something concrete for myself — and now for you as well. Let’s get into the first quote I chose: Continue reading

I’m Obsessed with Quotes

It’s no big secret that I am extremely fascinated with quotes and any little phrases that carry a load of inspiration. I believe words are powerful. They are life-changing and motivating, eye-opening and enlightening. Quite frankly, quotes have, overall, made me a much, much better person. But I’m not sure that many people know how my love for quotes have turned into a huge obsession — to the point where my room is out of control! I went through an insane phase where I actively sought out words of wisdom, and I didn’t want to forget a single one of them. So I decided to print them out and drown myself in them. I’m not even remotely exaggerating when I say that my room is literally surrounded by quotes. Take a peak inside! Continue reading
