Of Life and Losing a Loved One

Losing a loved one does not mean that you also have to lose yourself in the process of moving on with that tragic moment. At first, of course, you have all the right to be sad and weep for your loss but it’s definitely pathetic if you can hardly live your life without them.

A thing lost can never be regained especially if it’s in the will of the Lord. So, when you are currently experiencing such trial, don’t ever ask God why of all people, you were the one whom He had taken a loved one. Instead, be thankful that although you lost a person so dear to you, He is always ready to give you His helping hand whenever you call.

When your life gets a little messy because of problems, don’t say, “God, I have a big problem,” rather, say, “Problem, I have a big God.” And if you do, you’ll make an exceptionally tough person out of you–tough enough to withstand any obstacles and pound any impediments.

Of Life and Losing a Loved One

Complicated

I’ve always wanted everything that’s complicated because in intricacies, I find challenge. I get driven to be someone I’m not or do something that I’m not used to just because I feel the hype of being in a complicated state but still I can manage to get through. I don’t want to do the simple and plain because I easily get bored. Given the chance, I would choose something that’s unusual, always.

My life may be filled with everything that’s complicated right now but deep in my heart, I know that these complications make me stronger, wiser and a lot better than who and what I am before. Whatever happens, I know I’ll survive, even on the toughest times.

This is me accepting my weakness, which happened to be at the same time, my strength. 

Complicated

Acceptance

There are times when I wake up looking for answers for all of my questions: “Why am I not yet there? What’s taking me too long? Where on Earth can I find what I am looking for? Who am I really?”

But then after a few moments, I realize that not all of my questions have an answer, that I should just let some things be and at the end of the day, what’s more important is that I exist.

Though we don’t understand some things in life, why they happen and what they are for, we just have to accept the fact that they happen, whether we like it or not. And since we cannot do anything about it, all we are left to do is just to accept it. 

Acceptance

Inspiration

​You don’t really need to have a “special someone” to be inspired because in reality, inspiration is everywhere. It can be in a form of a friend dear to you, a mentor you admire, an artist you idolize or just someone who caught your attention. It can also happen when you witness the rising of the sun, the view of the calm sea, a leaf falling from a tree or just a simple thing that made you feel good.

You just have to accept the fact that in that instance, you became inspired. It’s always through the acknowledgment of something we feel that we can do things we never thought we can and feel that our life is already complete.

Inspiration

“We”

​In our everyday lives, we often think about what we want– what would suit us, what would be in our favor and what would be beneficial for our own sake.

At some point in our lives, why don’t we think about other people’s sake first before thinking about ourselves? There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a “ME” attitude. But maybe, just maybe, when we all learn to consider other people and things, we will all become a better person. 

Remember, we can never be the very best but somehow, we can live a happy life by simply being a person a lot better than what we’ve always been.

“We”

Emotions, Finally!

​I’ve been trying real hard to say the right things to say; to figure out what I really feel and accept things as they should be. But then, at the back of my mind, I realized that some things are better kept unsaid or feelings just kept hidden. It’s not being untrue to yourself, rather, it’s just to “uncomplicate” things that are already complicated. It’s also not overthinking but a mere facing of reality that sometimes, in order for a thing to go well, we just have to leave them be.

Well, I guess I’m not that unemotional after all.

Emotions, Finally!

Happiness

Life is an unending series of finding something that will make us happy. We may find one thing that makes our heart beat fast, that makes us jump for joy and that makes us feel like we’re in a carousel but then again, when we’re done feeling the feeling of happiness, we may suddenly lose our interest on that something. And so we tend to look for another thing that would bring another kind of happiness, or maybe just the same but in another level.

True enough, we will only know what makes us happy if we let our hearts decide what it really wants because to be happy is one thing but staying happy is another thing.

We should always find happiness in everything that we do. Who knows if it might be our last chance to be happy and experience just being able to feel alive.
