the thing called life;)

     Sometimes, things just don't happen the way you want them to. No one is immune from hurt, from disappointment. We all have our lessons to learn, and often that is when we learn them best; Sometimes you just have to be the bigger person, even when you don't want to be; Sometimes you just have to swallow your pride and ask for help; Sometimes things just go wrong. Trains run late, the shop is out of the one thing you need, computers crash, keys and wallets get lost or stolen. It happens to everyone.

     Sometimes, people are just born with small minds and jealous hearts. There's not a lot you can do about it, except know that it's not about you; Sometimes, when we really want to say something nasty, we should say something nice instead. Honey attracts more flies than vinegar. It's easier to be negative, but so much nicer to put something positive out into the world. Don't be another grumpy person on the tube who never smiles.

     Sometimes we forget that people can't read our minds - only our actions; Sometimes it's just not your day. Or your week. Or your year. That doesn't mean that you can't make a fresh start, whenever you want; Sometimes you feel stuck, you feel as if things could have been much better - things shall pass and this phase surely will too.

     If I have any advice to share, it's don't wait. Don't wait to live your life. Don't wait until you lose weight, get a better job, move to a better area, get something published, meet someone. Start living now. Try to be happy within the context of where you are right at this moment. Learn to love the chilly days or the humid nights. Rejoice in crisp air or sun-warmed breezes. Drink hot chocolate, red wine and fruity minty iced teas, whatever the weather. Laugh. Listen to music you love as you travel to work. Dream and hope. Choose happiness. Choose to rise above.

(inspired from many schools of thought, and the piece you just read is an amalgamation of things n' thoughts I picked up from various sources, and that are worth being shared)


  1. very true..but,circumstances reflect everything.

  2. Soo true! I love it! Just keep being posistive and happy... no matter what your circumstances you and you alone have to power to let somehting ruin your day or not, you have the choice to smile or frown and things only affect you if you let them. If you can't change your circumstances, change your mindset :)

  3. totally agreed!! i believe in theology that life is much like mirror and what you see is what u want to see. readjusting the perspective is a must!!

  4. I chose to stay in twitter and m much happier. Made many new friends and created my own blog to share my views towards life and world. I was happy before but m much happier now. dats y i liked that quote, 'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' And few lines of 3rd paragraph reminded me of song 'I'll be there for you' from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Keep smiling.

  5. "To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did" --> favourited!!
    u r ryte, life is just too short not to be happy. so, we should take chances and try to surround ourselves with things and pple who makes us happy!! as u come to think of it, how online frens (from blog and twitter as u mentioned) brings joy with them in our lives;) and again we met and became friends because we chose to pen down our thoughts on our blog...!! i love that song... i literally grew up with F.R.I.E.N.D.S...

  6. Dont wait to live your life....mmm...YES!!!!


stay insanely happy ♥
