I'm finally married! Alhamdulillah ya Allah. Thank you so much for all your support, wishes & prayers, guys...much much much love...:)
This was my wedding invitation card I designed myself heheh...the initial theme in mind was "rustic chic", but I think it wasn't really "chic" hehehe. S & I actually spent time personalizing these cards one by one according to the receivers personality hihih..hope they liked it...:)
The hardest thing to do in life is to hold on to what you believe when other people disbelieve. I've always believed that S is the man God wanted me to be with even when so many people doubted and hated our relationship. Not everything can be explained in words. When the belief in your heart is that strong, it must mean something. Never underestimate your own heart...:)

So many times have I met people who are very surprised to see me after such a long time, and they start talking about how I was so much skinnier and unattractive back then, and that they see that I have at least taken better care of myself today. But they don't stop there. They keep on talking about the old days, and emphasize on "oh you should have seen her back then", as if my present does not entertain them as much.
Why do we keep referring to the past, if what matters is "today" and how we have progressed? I am not ashamed of my past, of how I looked, of how much weirder I was back then. But do we really need to keep rewinding? Everyone grows! :)
Every human being goes through phases of not looking that good, looking better, gaining weight, losing weight, having pimples, gotten rid of pimples, ugly hair, better hair, was lame, now cooler. Well some people are just very lucky that they've always been the pretty ones and remained the same. But hey, not everyone is that lucky! We all grow, and it's all normal. But I notice that some people enjoy more on highlighting the less-good moments of someone, as if it's just a better story to tell and share.
Remembering our own past can be useful to remind ourselves of how far we've progressed in life, but pointing out the less-exciting past of other people continuously out of, I dunno, jealousy (?), really makes you look like you're living in the past and not wanting to move on. Or that you're stuck and not progressing yourself so you feel the need to take down someone else so that you feel better.

I noticed something today. That some people, enjoy killing other people's dreams, or visions. Although unintentionally, they actually do through their very few words and innocent faces. We shouldn't sweat the small things, but small words, we should. Words carry real meanings, hence the presence of dictionaries. Never think that words are just words. They really affect one's world.
And words can also cure. They can be the birth of life-impacting innovations, of big changes for the world. The impossible and possible happen from a mindset. And mindsets, are developed through the words we speak and we tell to ourselves. When others speak about impossibility, I prefer closing my ears. When I believe, I believe. Have faith, friends..:)
Currently enjoying taking pictures in S and I's soon-to-be little new place...it feels so good to fill in and decorate a new place and let go of old things and give them away to those who need them more.... alhamdulillah...:)
