Staying Sane: EMOTIONS

Hey wordpressers,

What makes you happy? Many of us may say music. Music definitely affects our mood immensely. To others, happiness comes from nature. The sun shining, trees swaying, rain dropping.. Many people feel happiness with the positive energy they received from the people around them. The flow of optimism around the world they surround themselves gives them this lively energy. Others find happiness in peace. Quiet and contentment brings joy into their life. We all have our own happiness.

However, do you believe sadness is necessary for us to appreciate our happiness? That maybe if joy is in continuum, we may feel bored of it, or we may not even like its presence… Meaning we may try to tear ourselves up, bringing out our insecurities and imperfections, just to feel sane.

Being happy all day every day may make us feel robotic, where the only emotions we can show to the world are smiles and laughters. We forget that there are other emotions out there that makes the world go round. Emotions that defines us as human beings.

So if you have been sad, angry, poker faced for so long now, do not worry. You need to feel those to appreciate happiness in the future. These emotions also enables us to soak in this important lesson in life called perseverance.

Perseverance are not only for the sad ones. They are also for the people who are agitated, waiting, or even the people who are just riding along with life… These emotions enables us to feel and learn in life. Happiness, sadness, anger, neutrality, and mixed emotions keeps us sane, for our heart feels and our minds process…

A Word Away

Hey wordpressers,

Our writings define who we are. These written words are not just letters composed turning into words leading to sentences, these are the very letters that our minds manufactured to show people that our thoughts just does not come and goes in a split second in our minds, that our thoughts can make a difference in the lives of the species that are so called humans.

Images crossing our minds, written and spoken, whether it may make a small or huge difference in the hearts of humanity, they are worth a thousand spoken words. Lives of people are touched by poets, authors, and writers, like you and me, because at some point we all connect and understood each other. Quotations understood what we are going through, and they scream our deepest thoughts. Simple words are gathered together to let all of us know, that we are understood.

Words reassure our hearts that we are not alone in this journey. Writers spill their hearts out to express, but little do they know that people around the world relates to them, creating this societal bond. We may not see eye to eye, but those written words are printed and passed without boundaries. The next time you write, open you heart and let those words of yours shine through the lives of people. Remember: You are only a word a way on making a difference in this world.

Reminiscing while Waiting

Hey wordpressers,

            Ever felt like your past has so much more lessons to teach you? That chapter of your life may have ended, but your mind keeps rehearsing certain moments, what you could have done differently, if only you knew what was coming… Those questions always circling around your head, followed by the feeling of regret.

            Maybe it has been months, years, or decades, but your mind has not moved on from the past yet. It keeps dragging you back to the memories you chose to forget. They keep taking you back to a time where love was present, and you compare it to now. You feel so stagnant.

            Then you question yourself and God, when will the “next big thing” arrive? Not necessarily a new love, maybe something that will momentarily take your mind off from your history. Moments that will finally keep you moving and looking forward.

            Waiting periods may even pay off in the long run. I guess it allows us to appreciate and cherish the people, things, and events that are yet to come. Human beings tend to take for granted each other and each blessing placed in our lives.

            So for now, we are stuck with waiting. Maybe it is not so bad after all. If you ask me, as I wait, I enjoy myself with things like reading. Reading makes me live in different lives. I live the life of the main character/narrator, giving me some fictional experience, and those are more than enough for me.
