WHAT BOTHERS ME IS YOU DON’T GET ALL YOUR FACTS RIGHT.

FOUR YEARS AGO, I CAME UP WITH THIS BLOG FOR THIS REASON;
It’s always been my passion to write something. And with the many things going on in my head, I feel that if it doesn’t come out it will be like a bomb that will ruin my sanity.

It’s about time to unveil what’s inside of me, to speak my mind and share my thoughts about everything. About Life… Death… And the Love in between.

Daughter : Dad, why do girls have to change their last name when they get married?

Dad : It’s the law.

Daughter : If ever I would become a president, I would change that.

 Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Just like the song goes ….

“When the dog bites

When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad…”
A little, maybe.

Letting things done…

“Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.” -Alan Watts-

“Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.”

Have you ever heard the phrase: “The more you try, the less likely you are to succeed.”? We shouldn’t force things, life simply needs to happen.

Lucy Lu (repost)

I knew Lucy Lu since she was a kid. She never talks much but knows how to speak her mind. She will never elaborate things in detail but somehow can show you how things work.  At school, she’s an average student. Likes math, but almost failed her Algebra and Geometry class. Doesn’t like science, but got 90% average grade in Physics in her senior year in high school. Hates English language but dreams of becoming a writer. She’s quite confused about what she likes.

        She took people oriented course in college to overcome her shyness, but apparently entered in the convent to become a nun. Still confused, huh?

Confused, define as, the state of being unable to think with clarity or act with understanding and intelligence.

In the course of one’s life, you often encounter this word. It’s not a humps or potholes, it’s a stoplight. It gives you time to think things over. It may take a week or month, but nevertheless you will have to decide.

Getting confused  means, you have to get out of your comfort zone, to test your limit, to know your capability, to take a leap, to risk.

About Lucy, she’s now a wife and a mother of 3 beautiful kids. Confused yet excited of pursuing her dream of becoming a writer and a painter at the same time.

         And by the way, Lucy is me.
