I opened my eyes to a new morning.
I have nowhere to go but my spirit’s soaring.
No idea about what will happen today.
But I know there’s nothing that can cause dismay.
Good thoughts and nice flutter.
I feel the wind touching my face.
Such a very good feeling.
The air is my saving grace.
I feel most alive now.
With such a youthful drive.
I know life wouldn’t be easy.
But I don’t mind to strive.
I was never really an optimist
but it’s nice to be on for a change.
I don’t want to dwell on the bad
when positivitiy has an endless range.
It’s been quite some time since i last posted something here. I don’t know why but these past few weeks I have had a hard time writing. Trust me, I tried several times to write in the past days, I had few unfinished works that I couldn’t really give a good closing words to.
Maybe it’s the stresses of life, work, and dreams. But I never want to ever lose my ability to string words together. It’s too important for me to give up, It’s one of the few things that made me feel good.
I remember the first time that I didn’t blog for 9 days. I posted my explanation as to why I wasn’t able to write during that period. But its different before, I was so busy and I tired but I knew then I still have the words in my head. But over the last few weeks of my silence, I was worried because I really don’t have the words.
Today I woke up, still not knowing what to write but I remembered the advice that another blogger, a very wise man and friend, told me before. He said “Come back to writing when you are ready.”
And I think I am ready now. So I am writing again. Forgive me if my new future works suck or what not. I am still at lost but I am trying to find the words and hopefully I can. 🙂
It is 5:30 am here and I can’t sleep. What better way to spend my free time than writing? I was supposed to write an entry about the list of the places I want to visit but then I suddenly think of the reason why I am writing in the first place.
I think most people write for a whole lot of reasons.
I remember the first job interview that I had 3 years ago, the interviewer asked me about the thing that I like to do so I said “I love to write essays, poems, songs, and the likes.” I thought my answer would suffice but there was a follow-up… “Why do you love to write?” she asked.
And then I blurted out the MOST EMO answer that one could possibly say in a job interview… I said “Sometimes I write to remember and sometimes I write to forget.” Say what? 🙂 lol.
Did I mention that this was a group interview so a couple of my friends with a couple of other stranger was there? Yes, I think my friends couldn’t help but smile after hearing that. But its true.
There are many things that I love about writing and resaons why I keep on writing. 🙂
I write to remember the things that are really important or special. I think my mind retains it well when I wrote things down.
I also write to forget the horrible things and just get it out my mind.
I write because its my way of expressing the feelings and words that I am unable to speeak or utter.
I write because it myself feel better after a long difficult day.
I write to share my stories and passion about family, friends, love and life itself.
I write to be able to reach other people and somehow touch their lives.
I write not because I think I am good in writing but I want to be better at it.
I write because I love how it feels when I am done and I read my work and somehow I know that those words are real.
Writing makes me feel alive and it makes me feel positive about life. It is a great feeling when someone reads your works and they tell you how they liked it and they encouraged you to be better. It is amazing how a stranger read your works and then tell how they feel about it and somehow they were able to see from your point of view . I know I have a lot to learn about writing and I know I may not write best words yet but I will still write anyway because I know someday I can be really good at it.
Thanks to the people who are continuously encouraging me to write and are reading my works. Thank you for all the kind words and please do know also love reading your works and most of the time they inspire me to be better and make me remember the things that I often forget. Hope to hear from ya! 🙂
A frustrated traveler. I think that’s what I can call myself. As a child, I have always dreamed of going around the world. I used to love reading about different counrties and cities and somehow I feel that I am travelling vicariously every time I read. I think I was about 10 when I memorized almost every single country and it’s capital. I was quite dreamer and I still am now.
There are a lot places that I want to go to but it was never the right time or I never had enough money. But It were up to me, I’d be definitely out there, travelling the world, learning languages, taking pictures and eating every native delicacies.
Now, It still isn’t the right time and I still don’t have the money to get me somewhere I want to be but I will not stop dreaming. Maybe someday, I’ll be able to go around the places that I want to be. I don’t really know how can I be able to do that, maybe I’ll win the lottery or maybe when I have someone else’s pay check or whatever but I know Icant give up on my dreams.
I can’t wait for the day that I’m sitting in the shore of a beach somewhere writing about how marvelous and surreal just looking and drowning of it’s natural beaty or the time when I am in a knee-deep snow and feeling so cold but still making my very first snowman. Or the time when I am in the middle of park where leaves are falling endlessly as wind is blowing them all around. Or the time I’m in a wonderful garden where every flowers bloom around me. I just cant wait to witness every unique majestic view of the different places I want to visit. I can’t wait to see first hand how enchant how every places speak of stories of people and structures and I can’t wait to write all about it.
Someday, hopefully I can. 🙂
I’ll be writing down the list of the places that I wan’t to visit on my next blog.
Not just half-awake but wide awake. I have always thought of writing a novel. And for few occasions, I started writing, but halfway through the intro, I always feel that I am not ready. I have no formal training in writng and I always end up doubting myself and thinking that It will be a waste of time. Now I realized that doubting myself is an awful way of wasting time. I should have continued writing those unfinished works. I would have had, give or take two sucky unpublished novels by now but nonetheless I could have used all the experience that I could have gain in order to improve my craft and write something better but I was so scared to fail and be bad at it that I chose not to continue writing.
But I know now that Writing is way too important to give up just like that.
It is time for me to write my first novel and I know it will not be easy.
And maybe I will fail to do so, but what is life without taking risk?
I will write because it makes me feel good and it is something that I want to be good at.And when are passionate about something, you just need not question your abilities and just do it. And if in time, I will fail to finish this novel, It is comforting to know that I tried.
But I am kinda hoping that I will finish it. So I better start writing now. 🙂
My life’s getting more boring than ever. Thinking of ways to shake things up a little.
They say we only have one life and we should savor every moment of it.
I think that’s something that I really need to do.
I need to lessen my worrying and live a lot more.
Now where do I start? 🙂
My Random Convo with my dearest friend and fellow blogger Naiz a.k.a silly bluff.
Scene: We were so tired after shopping all day we decided to grab a bite. While eating…
(we call each other, ming! it’s like our bff code)
Naiz: Ming, Is it so weird that I have never been to Manila Ocean Park?
Me: No, not at all. I’ve never been there too. I mean, I went there once with my co-workers but we only ate in the resto, I’ve never been inside as well.
Naiz: Really? Maybe one of this days, I’ll go there.
Me: Ming, Yah, or maybe when I finally have bf, we’ll all go, you and your bf, and me and my future bf? lol. How about that? Promise you won’t go there until I have a bf then the 4 of us can go?
Naiz: No, Ming. Never mind. I don’t think I can wait that long. lol
Me: What are u talking about? I’m serious. Promise me?
Naiz: No. seriously. Sometimes I worry about you, not being able to find someone. I mean you are so choosy, or I don’t know maybe you just haven’t found your true love yet but I really hope soon you do.
Me: Hope so too. and you know I’m not choosy, I’m just waiting for love to happen. I don’t feel like settling for someone just because I need to have a relationship. I want something deep and true.
Naiz: Yeah, Right. You know I believe you but Still I’m not making that promise. lol
