Yesterday I was out with a couple of friends from uni. As we were standing outside McDonalds, a man was playing Gheorghe Zamfir – The lonely shepherd (the soundtrack of the movie, Kill Bill).
While he was playing the song, on his panpipes, an old man without legs, was trying to move on the side of the road.
My friends and I gave him so money and some food, but that didn’t make us feel better.
I personally felt very sad and I teared up. I must say that I hate seeing old people like this. And not only, it makes me feel sick when I hear someone saying that they hate their life and they want to die, but at the same time other people have worse lives than them. It’s just sad.

How grandma did it for 76 years.. how my great grandma did it for 92 years.. how many others do it for n years, you can do it too! Change your attitude towards life and you’ll be fine.

It’s morning here. It’s morning and I woke up to mama’s call. No, it wasn’t an ‘I love you’ call, it was more of a ‘you have 10 minutes to get up, then go do this, clean this..’ and so on. I’m cool with it. It doesn’t get me in a bad mood. I don’t mind having less time for myself. I’d rather help her right away because I know she has a lot of things going on. I’d rather help her right away to feel that I helped my own mother.
If anyone asks for your help, do it. Do it right away! Don’t wait for them to say to hundred times. They will eventually lose faith and you and they will get hurt.
The same thing with the quote which I’ve written at the beginning. Life is short. No negative people. Why? They will only affect you in a negative way and do you want it for yourself? I doubt you would. No one wants this. Everyone wants to be happy. No drama. No years. Just happiness. Then you know what you have to do, ‘keep them out of your life’.
Sorry for not posting too much. I promise that after I’m done cleaning up, I will do so.
Good morning and stay positive.
“We make our own decisions, we can’t blame other people when things go wrong in our lives. It’s up to us, if we want something in our lives, it is up to you to make it happen. We can’t blame our circumstances on our family. We are born into particular family. You can’t choose your family but you can choose what you want to become. Everybody gets an opportunity but it’s always up to the individual to make the most of it.”
That’s what I go by. We are born equal. The same. We all have the same opportunities (or at least we should have) therefore it is up to us to make the best out of it. Being lazy is a choice. Being successful is a choice as well. So it all depends on us.. on our character, mentality, personality, attitude.
Do your best to reach your goals. Nothing is impossible.
“We are often disappointed when we don’t get what we want and downright upset if we get what we don’t want. Then, the minute we finally get exactly what we’ve been waiting for, we’re afraid of losing it. The problem isn’t the fear, upset, or disappointment. The problem is the ‘want’ behind it all. Redefine what ‘enough’ means to you and you will find that you’ve got plenty of it.”

I make mistakes. You make mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes. It’s something normal although some of us (even me) can over do them for no exact reason. I know it may seem stupid, but I’ve done mistakes out of stupidity and once I get asked why I did them all I can say is that I don’t know. Because I really don’t!
If you someone makes a mistake, no matter how big it is.. no matter how many times they’ve done it before.. don’t try to get back at them. You love them after all. Right? I’m not saying that you should understand them either, because they’re wrong. But if they realised this already and if they’re trying their best to make it better, try to support them. They are probably doing all they can. And no, it’s never too late when you love someone. Unless they do a major thing, then okay, I understand. But until then? No. It is ever too late.
What they do may not be so big, so important in their eyes, that’s why they keep doing it. (Please note that this is not a reason enough to mistreat someone) How some things you do, aren’t so big in your eyes. Have you ever though that you may have hurt them too? You probably did. Many times. But who cares? You love each other (or at least that’s how it should be) so why let things break you apart?
This goes to any relationship, not just what you have with your partners. This goes to friends and to family members too. Don’t try to get back at them. It will not help you. And you will hurt them. More than they hurt you. And after you hurt them, you can’t expect them to act as if nothing happened. Impossible.
The best thing to do is try to work it out.. talk about it and stay positive. Everything will work out in the end. I know this for sure.
When everything is good. Life is pink. No problems. Just happiness. Something has to happen. Something has to destroy it. Most of the time, it is for a better thing but I really don’t know what’s the better thing behind all that’s going on.
It seemed like everything was planned out just right. It seemed like nothing could get in between my plans and I. But guess what? God has another plan for me. Should I be happy? Maybe. I’m more like deceived, confused.. I don’t know His plans. My plans got ruined. How could I be happy? I am sure His plans are better, but still. Just the fact that what I have planned didn’t work out, is killing me inside.
Nothing. Not even one little plan. Everything is gone. I’m curious. I’m curious of what’s gonna happen but as I always say my life is in the hands of God. He knows things better than me and anyone else.
“For I know the plans I have for you.” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
- Jeremiah 29:11
