Keep Dreaming

I’m not quite sure why, but today has just been one of those days where I feel like I’m riding that roller-coaster called life. It had been good mostly, yet I still can’t shake the negative thoughts that are in the back of my mind. It’s been times like this where I really want change. Changes that are positive. Changes that would allow me to move on and to make sense of the world just that little more. And with lightning and thunder blasting away in the middle of the night right now, I wonder whether if the rain will wash away some of my misery … and will lead me to paths that I can make something of and to build on…

I came across this website which I would like to share. I will translate it below…

  1. Optimism is an attitude.
  2. If you don’t go out, you will only know of the world which you currently see.
  3. You don’t have to say everything that you know; and don’t trust everything that you see.
  4. Don’t take in too much of what others perceive of you, walk the path that is yours and let the onlookers say whatever it is they want to say.
  5. Shape ones self and through the pain of the process, you will eventually reap the benefits of your changes.
  6. Marriage is not about not fighting with each other, but it’s about fighting with each other and still being able to be together forever.
  7. Growing and maturing is most often the most painful of times.
  8. Superficial flaunting may not necessary be a good thing. However, setting aside one’s appearance is the real essence of life.
  9. Sometimes trusting someone means you will get shot.
  10. Do not despair. Life is like an ECG (electrocardiogram). If you’re living life too smoothly, it probably means that you’re already dead.
  11. Sometimes, when something you thought was funny happens to you, it no longer becomes a laughing matter.
  12. Sometimes, do not be fooled by appearances.
  13. What’s really scary are not real bad people, but fake good people.
  14. Has the love of life come upon you yet?
  15. Be sure to constantly tell yourself, never to give up!
  16. As a matter of fact, it’s not because that you are alone, it’s just that you chose a different path from everyone else.

Even though we know all this… sometimes it’s nice to be reminded again when you’re feeling down…

Next move…

These last few weeks have been awesome for me. To update you on what’s been going on… I’ve recently moved to a new job and so far, it’s been good. I’ve met some nice people, and work has been challenging and intense, but exciting. The reason for wanting to write about it here today is that for one of the first time in my life, I actually am enjoying it. I’ve only somewhat mentioned it to some of my friends, but they always give me the same look. The “How can you be this happy about work and your job?”
But in all seriousness, I’m really happy about the things that I’m learning, I’m really happy about my working environment, I’m happy about how cool my boss is… (for now… need more time to reconfirm… haha), I’m really happy about my schedules, and basically am just happy about what I’m doing. I’m still not 100% sure that I’m feeling this way because everything is new, but it had never been like this whenever I had started at a new place. You know, it’s like the new girlfriend analogy. When she’s new, all you wanna do is to just hang out all the time. But unless it’s like true love, you normally will get bored after a while.

For now, I feel that life is good. Whilst I can’t say that I am happy 100% of the time, but at least I feel that I am heading in the right direction.
