I am not sure where this post will lead to so please be warned that this will sort of be a major “core dump” and the mother of all randomness.
Much have happened between the last quarter of 2017 and up to this point. I finally have the time to be alone to “release my mind”.
It was World Compliment Day two days ago on 1st March. The need for such a day deserves to be reflected upon. It makes me feel that the world is in so much need of love. That is because we no longer give credit where credit is due. We are very stingy with our compliments for others.
I am not sure about you but I feel that we are living in times when we are very quick to discard, judge, and “kill” while it takes much longer to heal.
We live with a lot of insecurities and distrust.
The world has never been noisier. It feels like there is so much distortions and interferences in the matrix. There is some sort of disquiet.
We have so much and yet we yearn for more.
Comfort entices us to be greedy and live above our means.
Often times, we slip and fall in our pursuits for short lived happiness.
The taste of luxury get us hooked and so we keep chasing after the “first high”.
But at the end, we realize that what we yearn for is not of material in nature. We need the connection with others – the relationships and friendships.
Then, there are those relationships that breaks down due to all sorts of reasons. We often forget that it takes two hands to clap and it is usually not fully the fault of one party.
Whatever situation that life puts us in, it really is up to ourselves to chart the course of our destinies. At the core of it all, we are to face life alone because everyone have their own demons, vices, and struggles to conquer.
To make things better, we are encouraged to dream BIG.
To take charge!
And to BELIEVE that nothing is impossible…
Perhaps life is just an illusion that we condition our minds to believe.
I guess the key to life is to stop depending on the need for external affirmations. We need not yearn for the compliments to tell ourselves of our self worth. We need to stop putting tangible measurements on ourselves because not everything is measurable and in numbers.
Can you really put a value to a life?
