Let’s see where this goes.

today, your coffee comes with breakfast in bed! - adoraIt’s been a while, but I guess late than never, so Happy New Year Everyone!

So many things have changed in the past year. To start with, as co-bloggers we aren’t in the same country anymore. I suggested closing my side of the account for good, to avoid this inconsistency, but that idea wasn’t well-received :P.

I didn’t really plan on writing this up, so I am not sure what would be the conclusion of this post, but maybe let’s just see where this goes. Well, pretty much that’s how we can deal with life these days. A year is well too long to plan and strategize how one can work around the life that is just constantly changing, and what’s worse is our mind changes more rapidly than our ‘action-able’ plans – so why bother right? Hence, the only thing I can work with is ‘let’s see where this goes’ (Ha! that could be the title)

In between the long aim of ‘letting life happens’, I do sometimes get this intense motivation that gets me hyped up with the wildest dreams (that don’t even make sense at that time), but I think no maybe it’s this time that I would make it happen and I would be so proud of myself with my achievement. But then shit happens.

So why are we so bound to the lows that engulfs our dreams? Over-thinking.Ah, I really didn’t think I would answer that question when I just typed it, but I did, and not to self-appreciate, but I’m right. Of course, many defensive minds would start saying ‘no there are other factors too’, yes there are, but eventually it’s our mind that controls our actions, and if we aren’t allowing ‘over-thinking’ to engulf our dreams then what is that damn creature?!? I would love to say it is what people in the Bird Box see aka the manipulative creatures, but that would be just for entertainment, ofc.

Anyway, now that over-thinking the content of this post, has engulfed the point of posting this, I should come to a conclusion. Once again, Happy New Year Everyone! although it feels like nothing extra to be excited about the start of a new year, we are constantly experiencing change. These changes are obviously both good and bad. However, our glorious over-thinking ability considers all the bad changes life has offered and ignore all the good deals that got done. So here is this post encouraging everyone to control those over-thinking phases of your life, just so that even if you have the wildest dreams you have to accomplish this year, may you do so (or even take the first steps to try) and be proud of yourself and the fact that you didn’t let that manipulative creature win.

Adios!

End of the year post 

It’s December and New Year is 2 weeks away. Now, if it were my low days I would complain about how New year is not a big thing it’s just another year – blah blah, but I won’t. ‘Cos, that is just bullshit talk. New Year is an official restart to your life. Agree or not, that is the truth (note to self, as well)

A lesson of 2016: PATIENCE

It’s funny how all throughout the year I kept looking out for the end of everything – ‘end of week’, ‘end of month’ and even when good things are happening around me, I would worry about the end of it, about ‘why‘ it has to end (well yes, when you see my face I may look like a blank canvas, but there’s a whole messy mindmap up there). So now that the year is all set to graduate, my feelings are – “wait, what?!” – well, this was my feeling yesterday. Today, it’s different. (Gotcha!). Today my mind is all ready to start digging a grave for all the mess-full thinking this year has given me, and (now that I’m on a gardening term of explanation) – I will TRY to plant in the good stuff this year has given me (just so it grows for next year you see ;))
Okay, yapped enough, time for some bullet-ing.
3 lessons of this year that I MUST obey for the next  (obviously there’s more, but who’s got the time, right? )
Point no. 1: Shits going to keep happening (of course). But gotta you juuustt gotta deal with it. Right now if things don’t work out the way you want it too. Take some time for thinking a way out, and there is ALWAYS a way out. The shitty day is going to pass anyway, tomorrow may be worse for all we know, but today is definitely going to pass (unless you have the remote to pause /fast-forward time, then please leave me your address, I’m coming to you)
Point no.2: If people don’t get you at a stressful situation, leave it. When the storm is calmer, come back later to explain yourself better- but just don’t let things hanging everywhere (no I’m not talking about your messy room!.. I’m talking about those awkward unresolved issues hanging in between formal conversations.
Point no 3: The only way to get past a mess is to get through it (this is my worst, I could do the first two and delay action-izing the third). But yes, no matter how much we hate to face a crappy situation, you will somehow have to deal with it – and the more time you waste avoiding it, the crappier the situation is going to be (ok, gtg slap me now to de-stress now).
Well then, until another 3 bullet points pop into my tangled mindmap, it’s time to chill with the last of 2016.
