It has been a while since i last wrote something long on this blog and i’m at loss for words. It really is quite true that too much reposting and reblogging can dull you up and i’m not enjoying its effects while i’m composing this post. Another year has passed on my existence and i’m quite thankful of everything that has happened. All the ups and downs have given me all sorts of memories to treasure and lessons to ponder and i’m looking forward to everything that is to come.
This is the one word that best describes my whole year. I bought my first camera and i’ve been clicking away at anything ever since. I’ve learned many things and i’m still getting the hang of others. I’ve been thinking to myself that maybe i was born for this but i’m don’t that want to admit that yet especially because of the fact that there are still many things that i need to learn. I’m just excited as to where this path will take me.
The past year has indeed been very significant and it’s all due to the many lessons that has been forced fed into me some of which is really hard to swallow and i find it really hard to come into terms with.
1. People change - no matter what everyone says, this happens. This is bought upon by many things and it produces significant effects. I can still remember one of the lines that was written in one of high school slumbooks saying that i should not change because i’m fine the way that i was back then. Looking back, i realized that no matter how hard we try not to change ourselves, we were forced to by many things. Call it evolution or adaptation but still it’s change. I’m just hoping that the little things that make us who we are would not be distorted and will still be noticeable to everyone that matter.
2. Our society sucks - it runs on commercialism and stereotyping that everyone’s unique qualities are always ignored. People want to be like other people and celebrities are the voice of the masses. Bandwagons are the thing that you’ll be alienated if you don’t jump. Many things which can be solved by common sense are made even more complicated by stupid people who are only thinking about their own selves. Still, it’s still worth thinking about the things to come and dreaming that everything will turn out for the better in the end.
3. Religion - I’ve been wondering why we were always forced to join a specific type of religion when we were still babies with innocent eyes and without a care in the world. Religions that speak of everything except for an exit clause for those who want to get out when they realized that most of the things that they do are really unnecessary and most of the things that they say are just plain bullshit, Speaking as if they know everything except for the fact that most of what they teach relates to things that they themselves have not experienced. Don’t get me wrong. I still believe that God should be the center of our lives but i don’t think that He really cares for all those excessive rituals and practices that were all designed to rip people of their hard-earned money just to get their so called redemption.
4, Life is good - in spite of its toughness, there are still many things to look forward to in the future. The countless possibilities that come with every incoming second is more than enough reason to keep on living. Seeing dreams fulfilled can prove very heartwarming and seeing people’s smiles especially from those whom you cared about can make us move forward in our own paths.
5. Let it out - Nothing good comes with keeping things inside yourself. Express yourself. Share your feelings. Let out. We only have one life and don’t let other people talk you into hiding inside your own miserable shell. This is all quite good as long as you don’t step upon other people’s dreams and hopes. Moderation and sensitivity is the key to this and it can help you live a fulfilled and fruitful life.
Hopes and dreams
I have many plans and aspirations for the coming year most of which are carry overs from last year. I’m really hoping for the fulfillment of these things so there are really something to look forward to in the coming year.
I’m really thankful for another year and another chance to reach my dreams, to the things i like and to be with the people that i care the most. God is really good and no words can express how thankful I am for the many challenges and opportunities that He has provided me.
To end this “somewhat has become long” post, here are the lyrics to the song “life is wonderful” by Jason Mraz. Ciao!
It takes a crane to build a crane It takes two floors to make a story It takes an egg to make a hen It takes a hen to make an egg There is no end to what I’m saying
It takes a thought to make a word And it takes some words to make an action And it takes some work to make it work It takes some good to make it hurt It takes some bad for satisfaction
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle Ah la la la la la life is wonderful Ah la la la la
It takes a night to make it dawn And it takes a day to make you yawn, brother And it takes some old to make you young It takes some cold to know the sun It takes the one to have the other
And it takes no time to fall in love But it takes you years to know what love is And it takes some fears to make you trust It takes those tears to make it rust It takes the dust to have it polished, yeah
Ah la la la la la life is wonderful Ah la la la la la life goes full circle Ah la la la la la life is wonderful Ah la la la la
It is, it is so And it is so
It takes some silence to make sound And it takes a loss before you found it And it takes a road to go nowhere It takes a toll to make you care It takes a hole to make a mountain
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful Ah la la la la la life goes full circle Ah la la la la la life is wonderful Ah la la la la la life is meaningful Ah la la la la la la la life is wonderful Ah la la la la la la it is so wonderful It is so meaningful It is so wonderful It is so meaningful It is wonderful It is meaningful It goes full circle Wonderful meaningful
