Perspective

Do not do something because of others.
  • Don't do something because you want to be ahead of others.
  • Don't do something because by doing it, others will compliment you for it.
  • Don't do something because others aren't, and you simply want to be different.
  • Don't do something because others are, and you want to be current.
  • Don't do something because others told you to.
  • Don't do something because others told you not to, and you feel cool being a rebel.
Do something because you enjoy doing it, you believe it brings value to your life, and you just know that it's the right thing to do.

Rumi, I Adore.

This is an AMAZING picture.

Nice one, Rumi. As always...:)

Us.

I am frightened, by the fact that human connections are seamlessly beautiful. And that I will lose it one day, because I or the other no longer exist.

I am terrified, by the certainty that life is not unending. And it will take me away, with or without you.

Life doesn’t end when we die. Life ends when we decide to stop touching others, through our hands moreover our hearts. When I no longer exist in your heart, what is there to share? And when life takes me away, who will be there to care?

I love you, humans. Whether I know you, or whether we’re strangers. Let us smile and greet each other. We are stronger that way.

Two Identified

Guys...these accounts are not mine, therefore please ignore...

My real facebook account is this, however I prefer to keep it for close friends and family only...hope you understand! :)

Someone said…that “I dream too much”.

Truthfully speaking, I’m having mixed feelings right now. But in between being sad, surprised, disheartened and slightly angry, I am more perplexed. I was questioned, whether I ever touch the ground and realize that reality has never been that beautiful.

But why?

This is reality. My days where I wake up, take a shower, dress up, greet my parents and leave the house for work is reality. And the times where I get to blog and be recognized for it, meet new people, be inspired to achieve higher, is also reality. And the moments where I have disagreements with my parents, fight with my loved one, feel left out and fail so many times is nothing but reality. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. And when the owner says it’s pretty, it just is.

I dream big, and I work hard to achieve it. I believe that life is too short for us to have too many doubts and worries, and life feels very much worthy when we have something we want to achieve at the end of the day. Why settle for what we already have? I think it’s perfectly normal to keep challenging ourselves and redefine the meaning of success everytime we feel we’ve own it by setting another new goal. Life is short, but if you come to think of it, we actually have 365 days in a year. Being 25, I’ve spent about 9,131 days already and that’s a lot. If we look at our lives from this perspective, we are actually given so many days to build new dreams, make them real and move forward. So yes, I dream much, and I am comfortable with it because it makes me feel happy, motivated and complete.

At the very same time, I am fully aware of all the risks and consequences, minor and major. Dreaming requires us to be strong, to be able to tell ourselves to get up and try again if we fail. And most of all, it requires faith.

When people tell you, “you are incapable”, tell them “I’ll give it a try”. And when they say, “go ahead and make a fool out of yourself”, let them know “it’s worth it”.

All things considered, I think it's important to be honest, wise & reasonable. Some dreams might end unachievable. But at least we've tried, and that's all that matters.
