No hope.

Have you ever felt like you just can’t anymore?
Like nothing has a point?
Everywhere you turn the universe seems to be throwing something at you?

Then again, you may be getting your period.
I think that’s my problem today. I feel SO unnecessarily emo.

The one thing I hate most about being a girl is the fact that we have to menstruate. It’s such a long process as well.
You experience physical pain, you bleed and you’re on an emotional roller coaster ride for days before, during and after your period.

Men will never understand.
And neither will I.

Anyone want my ovaries?

Our greatest strengths are our greatest weaknesses.

I’d say my greatest strength is the love I have for people. I really do wear my heart on my sleeve. After all, it is my love for people which drove me to study public relations in the first place.

The dangerous thing about loving with an open heart is that it leaves you vulnerable to those who are comfortable with taking advantage.

So many times I have acted thoughtlessly and even stupidly in order to help or please someone I care about.

I fall in love with every person I befriend (not romantic love), I trust too easily and I welcome people with open arms but it is this very love that drives me to be there for anyone I care about when they need help.  It is also this very love which has allowed me to be hurt by those very people who couldn’t care less about my feelings.

So while my ability to love may be my greatest strength, it is also my greatest weakness. In life that’s just the way it is. You’ve got to take the good with the bad and pray that in the end, it’ll all be worth it.

It is better to practice a little than talk a lot.

Being a very talkative person, I understand how easy it is to get caught up in a fat conversation about what you plan on doing or what you want to do. However, in today’s day and age you may get left behind if you’re all about talk and not so much about action.

When you are able to talk the talk, as well as walk the walk – simultaneously, you will find quality in anything you put your efforts in to.

“Practice makes perfect” and “actions speak louder than words” so why stand around talking about what you want to do when you could actually just go ahead and do it?

Bittersweet Memories.

Today while procrastinating, I found myself going waaay back on my iTunes playlist and playing some tracks that took me straight back to high school. I then added fuel to the fire by looking at old photographs (as the appropriate soundtrack was playing in the background).

It was almost as if I jumped into a time machine and briefly relived my life. It was weird; I experienced a mix of emotions – warmth, happiness, sadness and surprisingly no regret.

I have been fortunate to cross paths with diverse and colourful people. I have laughed hard, cried hard and loved even harder. I thoroughly believe that life works like the weather, in seasons that come and go. Although as a whole it isn’t always perfect. Life is made up of a bunch of both perfect and imperfect memories which make it real. People can never take that away from you.

There are a lot of people that I miss, a lot that I am glad to be rid of and many that have stayed by my side. I am happy. The only thing constant in life is change and that’s often hard to accept. Change isn’t always easy. All we can do is keep rolling with the punches and enjoy the ride.

Do everything you want to do, laugh too hard, dance until you can’t anymore, over eat, misbehave and take too many pictures. Never forget that while life may change, memories last forever – cherish them.

 

The Sound of One Clapping

The sound of one clapping is the sound of celebration. It’s the sound of achievement, greatness and accomplishment.

It is a glorious sound which travels to the very core. Across the world we clap when we sing and dance, when we congratulate and cheer. Clapping is positive. The sound of one clapping is magnificent, it is happy.

Happy Easter to all! Rejoice for He has risen! ♡

Something to think about

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa

 

We are afraid of the wrong things.

We are afraid to be ourselves. We go through life cautiously because we are afraid of what others think. It’s common knowledge; people do things they don’t really want to do to impress other people. Peer pressure? Its something you experience throughout your life and it’s probably never going to go away.

The truth is, no one wants to be looked down upon or judged by others. As much as we say we don’t care, we do. Somebody famous once said, “no man is an island unto himself”,  and it’s true.

We cut, copy, paste and edit parts of ourselves in order to fit in and be accepted, but that’s not how it should be.

A word to the wise, in life we shouldn’t be afraid of being ourselves because of what others think. Instead, we should be afraid of losing ourselves in the process of fearing what others think.

The word ‘platonic’ exists for a reason.

Society has placed a strong emphasis on the male and female attraction. So much so that it’s almost automatic that people assume any boy-girl combination seen together are a couple. I mean really now, is the idea of a platonic relationship that ridiculous?

About a week ago, a good friend of mine and I decided to meet the rest of our friends at a party. Simply because everyone else had things to do beforehand and we wanted to be there early.

Within the first half an hour of being there, we had both been asked numerous times about our relationship. “NO WE ARE NOT DATING.” The funny thing is that this very same friend of mine, is in my close circle of friends. We are always out together. So what made this particular time different? We arrived together!



According to rumours I have dated ALL of my close guy friends to date. How entertaining. They are like the brothers I never had. I get along easier with guys. I have more guy friends than girl friends and I can safely say I don’t plan on falling in love with, hooking up with or marrying any of them. I love them but I am not IN love with any of them (and vice versa).

I think every girl and guy should have atleast one close friend of the opposite sex. Girls and guys can be friends, they’re supposed to be! People need to stop jumping to the wrong conclusions and see things as it is, sometimes guys and girls hang out – just because they’re friends and that’s what friends do.
