Short Post: People

I don't have a lot of friends. But the amount of friends I have, I am pretty much satisfied. I don't need a lot of people hanging around me because I know not all of them are my true friends. I may have a few but I can say that they are all true to me.
 
I may be young for some people, but I am not that young in experience. I have encountered so many different people from all walks of life and I can say I've learned my lesson. Choose who you want to enter your life carefully because not all of them will bring positive vibes. I've experienced backstabbing and betrayal of trust before and it is an experience I don't want to go through again. It is hurtful and it is painful - not the best experience.
 
But with pain comes learning and with hurt comes understanding.

Short Post: Let It Go

Fear is something that is inevitable. Whatever the circumstance is, one is left feeling scared - afraid of something. But fear is also something that we should all learn to let go. What is life without taking risks? What is life without taking chances? There will always be evil forces around you that will instill fear. But that should not stop us from living the life we want. That should not stop us from enjoying and being happy. Take the necessary precautions, pray hard, and enjoy life. Fear is only a state of mind.

Short Post: Decisions

Sometimes, it is very difficult to make a decision on your own. You have to consider so many things: what benefits will it give you; what are the implications of your actions; will it give you better results; and so much more.

Long Term Relationship

I am not one to openly talk about my relationship. I just don't feel comfortable talking about it with people - unless they ask. I try to keep my relationship as private as I can because I don't want people to interfere. The problems we go through are between us. Other people shouldn't get involved. I think this is one of the key to keeping a long term relationship. Whatever happens between us is kept only between us. We rarely share it with other people because there's only two of us in this relationship anyway. People know that we are together. People know that we've been in this relationship for a long time. People know that sometimes we are happy and sometimes we aren't. But everything else about our relationship, we keep to ourselves.

Daydream

There are days when I just want to lie in my bed and dream. I dream of going to Tokyo and seeing the cherry blossoms in full bloom. I dream of diving in Rainbow Reef and see the marine biodiversity it has to offer. I dream of walking down the aisle wearing a Monique Lhuillier or Vera Wang wedding dress. I dream of attending Paris, Italy and New York fashion weeks. If only my dreams can come true when I open my eyes…

Short Post: Initiative

Initiative - the ability to assess and initiate things independently; the power or opportunity to act or take charge before others do (Google, 2014).

Initiative is a trait that I have learned throughout the years. I was taught to decide on things independently. Though sometimes I make bad decisions, I make sure that I learn from them. We can never make the right choices all the time. Sometimes you choose the better option but other times, you you make bad decisions. But even if you choose the latter, having the initiative to decide on things independently I believe is a good trait. It means that you can think quickly and you can take responsibility for your decisions. However, not everyone will agree with me. Some people, they prefer for you not to decide on things on your own. If you are faced with a difficult situation, they prefer if you consult every step with them.

Anger Management

I don't believe there is a single person on Earth who never got angry at one point in his life (save for Bible characters, perhaps?) Anger is a natural feeling that people experience. There will always be triggers wherever you go that will make this feeling emerge. Whether these are little things or major things, you can never escape from getting angry. However, anger can be managed. There are certain things you can do to prevent this ill-feeling from consuming you. 

Lately, there are so many things that make me feel angry: contractors not delivering what they say they will deliver and a co-worker who doesn't do his job well - they all made me feel angry. But though I am angry at a certain moment, I try to manage it as best as I can. I know that there will be better things waiting for me at the end of the day and allowing anger to consume me will only ruin it and make me feel worse (not to mention damaging relationships). Learning the art of anger management is definitely something that we all must learn.
