“Nothing Happens Until Something Moves”- Albert Einstein

Nothing Happens Until Something Moves- Albert Einstein
“One year has passed and a lot of things have changed. And to tell you honestly, I’m not yet ready for these changes. I shouldn’t have left.”
 
This was what I had written exactly a year ago on my Facebook page after I met my ex-boyfriend the previous night who was getting married at the end of October. I could still recall the stingy feelings I had that night albeit the fact that I don’t regret any of these anymore. I am glad for all of my decisions in life— good or bad, they made me wiser though.
 
Talking about changes. A year ago, I had decided to come back home and left the man I love the most. Long distance relationship is not for everyone, definitely not for us. Our relationship had turned into a huge mess and it became so impossible to repair. Nonetheless, we still manage to get in touch with each other. There were times that I got sleep deprived and my anxiety became severe. Distance sucks. You don’t know if he’s jerking off with other girl or not, your instinct says yes and your heart says trust him, he doesn’t. The conversation, long talks, and messages became lesser, he got so hard to reach and he wasn’t even totally there anymore. I was depressed because I was left hanging. I cried myself each night to sleep. I kept sending him messages and bombarded him with calls but no answer, and if there was, he always came up with good excuses and I was too gullible to believe him. But that was then,you see I woke up one day and realized that I don’t want to live that way anymore. I realized that I am not worthy of these bullshits for I simply know my worth. I stood my ground and  created a line that no toxic people shall enter; including him. In other words, I changed; from a chaste princess to a warrior that not no one messes around. I am no longer that gullible woman who would believe to people who only know is to take advantage of my weaknesses.I was never weak, I was just too trusting and too nice to people who didn’t even deserve the goodness of me. These don’t make me cruel tho. I isolate myself to people, I won’t start a conversation unless you started it first. In my silence, I learned to listen, scan the new people around me, and perceive thoroughly if we share the same vibrations. I don’t trust people anymore in spite the fact that people are good companions but no, I learned to trust and love myself even more. I am alone  but I am never lonely. I am much stronger than before and I know what I am capable of. I am unstoppable.
 
Past is a nice place to visit but never a place to live in. Once in a awhile, you would sit in the corner and think profoundly the things that have happened in the past and  it’d give you a nostalgic feeling. There are times that we couldn’t help but to wish things would go back the way they used to. And that’s a pretty normal feeling. You cannot change the past, you can only earn the lessons you have learned along the growing up stage. Sometimes changes could really suck a million times but at the end of the day, you get to realize that without these, you wouldn’t be the exact person you are now.
 
Change is definitely the only constant thing in the world.  The world continues on revolving; the world won’t stop moving just because you are hurt or you don’t want to.  The season changes. You roll the calendar. And you go along with it. You grow older. You become wiser. You change and that means you become maturer.
 
Some of us are afraid of changes. And yes, changes could be really scary at times. But God gave us the knowledge to make good judgement and the ability to adapt to changes. Humans are designed flexible. We grow. Our perspectives change and eventually they change us. We become more sensible. We lost things and people but at the end of the day, we learned. Close your eyes and comprehend things for a moment. Is this the life that you wanted? Are you satisfied with yourself? If you’re done, stand up, open your arms widely and welcome the changes. Change wouldn’t stop on happening unless you’re dead. Embrace changes, that means you are alive and life is giving you a chance to be the best person you could ever be. Welcome changes!

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood? Clinical psychologist Scott Bea, PsyD, affirms that shopping can have psychological and therapeutic benefits as long as it is done in moderation, according to research.

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

Nothing Happens Until Something Moves- Albert Einstein

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Nothing Happens Until Something Moves- Albert Einstein

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
