Reading Between The Lines

I am not sure why but often times we tend to live life reading between the lines. Perhaps it is because people are less direct and always trying to use the correct words or phrases when communicating. Maybe it is to avoid conflicts but more often than not, we are left to nothing but assumptions.

I for one, hate reading between the lines. For me, I appreciate people saying and doing exactly what they meant. I dislike leaving room for misinterpretation. Why make life more complicated than it already is?

It defeats the purpose of the fundamentals of communication. It all boils down to getting the message across.

A captain must give a clear instruction to his subjects to pull the trigger in a critical situation. What if he/she gave an unclear instruction? I am sure there will be quite extensive damage done if his instruction was misinterpreted.

So why do we even bother to communicate in ways in which we want our audience to read between the lines?

In fantasy books, the author’s sole objective is to write in such a way that it is left to the reader’s imagination to form the story line.

Are we living in a fantasy?

Awe Inspiring

I cannot help but to wonder what’s behind this amazing effort. It is very obvious that each and every one of them wants it to turn out perfect and beautiful. To achieve that I am sure that passion was the main driver. They put their heart and soul into it and on every beat of the song, they moved as one. Absolutely amazing & inspiring….

The Weary Run

I have been running hard for the past 3 years. In terms of work and life in general. Being too engrossed in the daily demands have made me lost focus to enjoy the journey. My state of mind is at its breaking point and it felt as though I am about to snap again. Another part of me is fighting hard not to allow the mind to wander into that all familiar self pity state. If it is allowed to get there, I fear that there will be no turning back and I will be sucked into the vortex of depression.

I once read that you are as big as your mind is built. In other words, whatever you can hold in life depends very much of how “huge” you are built as a person. In hindsight, given the state of emotional intelligence that I possess, I could have been dead a long time if not for the many things that are holding me together.

I need to re-focus on my purpose which is to build myself further in order to handle larger challenges and graces that I deserve. I must re-align my thoughts in pursue of greater things and the ability to handle whatever situations that I find myself in. There will be no end to learning and at least, when I have learned more, I have less to worry and be afraid of.

It has been a weary run and I am totally exhausted at this point.

In order to distract my mind from the negative thoughts, I turned my attention to doing something totally different from my regular work. I took my camera and started looking for my photography subjects.

These are some of the shots I took today…
