Adulting

As we get older, we begin to ask ourselves if we have already reached success or if we have done good enough to be better than our younger self. We start to think about having definite goals, those that we can actually achieve instead of the superficial ones which are probably a long shot. We create a “Bucket List” of things we want to do before we reach a certain age and we make sure to do them one by one. We realize that bills have the same value as hardwork, that we shouldn’t take them for granted or we’ll face consequences for our negligence. We become responsible not just for ourselves but for life, in general. We start to see life in a broader sense and we take on complicated things to be the new normal. We value work, more than we adore play.

But, in the middle of it all, we constantly ask ourselves, “Am I ready yet to get old?”

That, my friend is the million dollar question because no one, even the most intelligent person, or the wealthiest man was ready when they got old. We really wouldn’t know if we are ready unless we try doing what we have to do, which in this case, be an adult. When you’re already where you are supposed to be, you’ll know exactly what to do because life equipped you with everything you need to be better, to be stronger and to be wiser– wise enough to know that you have to grow up and not just age up because everyone gets old but not everyone grows up.

Being an adult ain’t easy but you will get there– in the right time, when it’s already your time.

Truthful Lie

Many times, we get confused on what to do with our life. We bombard ourselves with questions, sometimes, even the silly ones, that we do not know how to answer (or if they really have an answer). Maybe, that is what living life is all about. We wonder constantly what the future will bring us but we also get stuck with the past’s “could-have-been” and “I-should-have-done-that”.

 

We also tend to complicate things, or even our relationships. It’s like, though we are perfectly happy with something, all of a sudden, we think of lacking something essential, something that cannot be explained. And so, we lose our contentment. We forget how happy we are because we’re busy finding the loopholes on everything.

 

Undeniably, living life could be that hard especially when we easily give in to temptations, to lies that come out as truths or to thoughts that are just thoughts, with no meaning at all. Life is a truthful lie we all have to live with but without it, we are just a thought, waiting to pop out and come into existence.

Talking Deep

Have you ever just wondered why you are created on this earth? Like, are you living for a purpose or you are just something that came up out of the blue? Is it even valid to say that you are a reincarnation of someone who has lived before you? Are you a clone?

These questions sometimes come to my mind whenever I am opening a conversation with someone. Not that I don’t have any interesting topic to talk about, it’s just that, for me, it seems pretty cool to talk about these things especially when you’re bored. Why? It’s simple. These serious and deep stuffs make the best conversation because it can open up a broad topic that could make a simple chat, feel like an entire storytelling. You see, I always love to listen to people’s stories. Good or bad, plain or exciting, short or long, it doesn’t matter. For me, these stories are what make them alive.

Not a day really goes by that we won’t have anything to talk about to someone. It is because through talking, we are able to express ourselves—how we feel about something, what we want, or just our point of view. There’s freedom in talking and this medium of expressing oneself has become the most effective way of human interaction.  However, it is through talking about unusual stuffs that we get to know a person better and realize that there’s more to life than mediocre things or even people.  It is because, man as we are, there’s this peculiar weirdness in all of us that comes out when we least expect it. For example, when we decide to discuss about a certain topic which at first we don’t realize that we have in us. It could be our childish dream to have our own amusement park, our love for zombie and post-apocalyptic stories, our obsession about heaven, hell and purgatory, our fetish for feathery things, our disposable utensils collection and the list goes on.

Today, at this moment, what I really want to fuss about is my love-hate-relationship with my job (day job to be exact). However, as I am caught in this dilemma and some kind of “deep-stuffs” virus, I ended up literally talking about it on this post. Well, please excuse my currently unstable brain.

So, do you have anything to talk about? Why am I still typing? Argggghhh……

How To Live

It’s not very pretty out there in the real world. But if we won’t take every chance we have to cope up and just live in the imaginary world that we used to, we lose our chance to be who we most wanted to be. Sometimes, it could be tough. You’ll face mishaps, challenges, and all that negative stuffs. But as long as you have the courage to try and wait, you’ll surely have the fruits of your success.

So, travel a lot, open up more conversations, pursue your passions, collect more memories and let someone know what you truly feel. Like they say, you only live once, so might as well, make the most out of it. When you finally know how to be happy, you finally know how to live.
