“Confiance & Sérendipité”

n. confidence; trust | n. possibility

Pain changes people, it makes them trust less, overthink more, and shut people out. There are many things in life that putting your trust is and will always be there, especially when you are about to make decisions. Have you ever asked yourself about trusting someone? Trust whatever life might bring you? Trust the people around you? Or even trust yourself? Are you getting the same answer? It’s hard, isn’t it?

People might think that you’re too weak not to engage your trust in something, or maybe to someone. But what if you’re in too much pain? Nightmares happened. Tried so many times. Gave those people the chance that they don’t even deserve. Will it still be called a weakness?

It is hard to trust when all you have from the past is evidence of why you shouldn’t. Forgiving isn’t the hard part, it’s you trusting again.

The serendipity where you’re finding something good without looking for it is like a happy accident with hints of luck. That no matter what you’ve been through, pain and happiness, through darkest and vivid times, wrong people and the right one—chances will always be there. Along with that is the lesson that you’ve learned to make you a better and strong person.

The beautiful part is you don’t have to push yourself so hard with everything. You fell ten times, stand up 11 times. Still, don’t be afraid to trust and give chances. Life is short. And when you’re already with someone who can make you feel that you are their everything, that person will do anything for you and will stay through the difficult times and will love you endlessly.. stay and love each other with no limits.

Poems

“A Mistake To Fall In Love”

My mind says to let you go
But my heart keeps whispering no!
We both want each other hands
But there are so many obstacles around

We both know that we are taken
And this love has to be broken
How far can we take the risks?
If we both want each other kiss?

Some say fight for your love
Because it will fly just like a dove
It will surely cure a broken heart
And never surrender to fall apart

I love you and you love me
But we should set each other free
Even if we try to work this out
It’s still a mistake to fall in love

#Day59 Realization

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” -Eckhart Tolle

It’s been more than a month since we were placed under total lockdown as the cases for COVID-19 started to go up. Staying at home is okay for me — I love it. The fact that you’re with your family, doing things that you love, spending the whole day, and eating within one table enjoying the food made by mom. Isn’t it amazing that despite the pandemic, you have the chance to have this moment in your life? Because most of the time, you live to work and be exhausting yourself with the shits and craps around, right? This pandemic made me realize and taught me so many things. Nothing is certain and everything is beautiful. So, let me share with you my few realizations in the middle of this pandemic:

1. Be grateful. We should be thankful for whatever we always have. Seeing our family healthy is one of the most beautiful things in the world. Enough foods to put on the table? Be grateful. Apparently, others don’t have the opportunity to get enough stocks to support their meals and they still need to work hard for it despite the pandemic. Again, be grateful and stop complaining.

2. Save money. As the day goes by, since we can’t get out of our little house, I realized that money doesn’t make any sense. Before this virus came up, law and behold, we always spend our time inside malls spending our money to the things that we “want” not what we “need” or sometimes we tend to spend our money and time with restaurants, bars or even buy a drink from Starbucks, without even thinking that the money we spent can buy much more than the drink you bought. It is very important to save money (at least 3x of your monthly salary), especially when a time like this.

3. Appreciate. Busy at work? Making sure that you have enough amount of money? But maybe we can spend a little time to appreciate what you have, in front of you. Staying at home made me see what true treasure is. My family. This pandemic on the other hand helps to put a stronger connection to each and every member of our family and I think that’s great and I appreciate it.

4. Faith. I remember one of the lines that Michael Scofield (from Prison Break series) told his brother Lincoln Burrows to have faith and he will make sure to get Lincoln out of prison. I ain’t saying to have faith in those kinds of thing (lol) but what I am saying is, in everything that no matter what we are going through we should always have faith — with God, with the universe and with yourself.

5. Be kind. The world is going through a lot aside from this pandemic. Be kind whenever possible — it is always possible. No matter how small it is, it can make a tremendous impact on someone else’s life.

It is not about me, it is about us.
