A NOTE TO SELF:
Beauty in devastation, paradoxical it may seem but in every desolation one should get back on their feet, stand tall, move forward and see the beauty it may bring. My sister once told me, “One tragedy should not stop you from living.” (She wouldn’t allow me to post it online since people might take it out of context but Iím posting it nonetheless) She then added “Your world shouldn’t stop if there’s something happened. Go on and be sure you learn something from it”. This advice from her is something I should always bear in mind. She rarely say something like this and we both know there’s more to this. The moment I read her message, it reminded me to stop, think, and then move forward.
But from the day to day living, one gets lost, mislaid in this chaotic world we’re living in. And as this saying by Zig Ziglar goes, “Motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily”. Motivation is just like taking a bath, motivate yourself every day if we do not try to pick up the habits of change, we are going to be left in the dirty waters of life.
This is just a simple reminder for myself, a note to thyself that every day is a new day, a new beginning, take a deep breath and start again like a brand new empty piece of paper and a pencil to make a beautiful new story to tell but don’t be afraid to make mistakes, that is why pencils have erasers. Life is a process.
