Faith

Well after my previous post, somehow my writer’s block has been lifted. I have had so much to write about these past few days that i just keep scribbling on paper when the urge comes in. If you know me, you would have guessed by now that am much better at writing than talking. Yes! am one of those who text a 1000 word message describing my love for sushi or the new guy in my life or how crazy my life has been or just how amazingly gorge my new KLS wrap dress is! Yes..am THAT girl but am proud of it.

Visitng my Korean friends last weekend, i could not count how many times i saw the Chinese Characters for the words Faith, Hope,Love! Got me thinking of getting a wall sticker too but thats not the point of this post! These are simple words but yet i feel my whole life revolves around them.

I am not one to throw religion in anyone’s face. In fact i bet some of y’all think i might not have any because am so chill but the one thing am so proud of (except my yoddling skills) is my faith, hope and Love. My faith is what gets me through each day. Faith to get better, faith to get things done, hope for something better and i wear my love on my sleeves and am never afraid to express it. Yes again..am THAT girl!

I might not be the most prayerful or go to Church every single week. Heck! I might not even fast at all but am very good at believing. Believing in Higher Power, believing in myself, believing that things might not always go my way but there is a reason to that. Belief in something much more and greater than myself! I just know if you don’t have a belief system, life won’t just be.

Sometimes we just got to stop letting things happen and picture what we want in our lives – better jobs, good health, wealth, love, peace of mind. We need to speak things into existence. Am one of the most stubborn people i know!I will just get things in my head and go for them regardless of the adversities or road blocks. Sometimes,just sometimes, you just got of take a leap of faith and try to get things done, and stop thinking of the negatives and that little voice in your head that it can’t be yours! Am just one of those people who will tell you YES I CAN! I would rather have things not go my way than not trying hard enough.

It’s okay not to know what the future holds, its okay not to have all the answers to whatever we go through or have no expectations but where there is hope and faith, nothing is impossbile even when the world says no!

I just believe God does not put you where you can’t handle. I believe that when certain confusing times rock our lives, it will eventually make sense, no matter how hard it feels in the moment. The point is try your best at every opportunity at love, wealth, success and let it be..let it take you where its meant to and stop the what ifs or negative thinking. Negative thinking never makes it easier, but relish in the good and positive!

All we need is Faith, Hope  and Love!

Step by Step

step_by

If you were a 90’s kid, you might have watched an amazingly cute and funny sitcom called “Step by Step”  about complete strangers meeting and making an awesome blended family step by step. This was my favorite Tuesday night telly show. But this is not the point of my post on this bright Wednesday,  I have always heard people say “Take it step by step”, but not until now did i realise the power that those three words have.

We all experience life in totally different ways with one or two common factors of how we deal with it. My mum always says “Life is too short not to try out something you keep thinking about” which has inspired  my post today. I am learning to take each day as it comes, taking a step at a time to get to where i eventually want to go and be.

This year has taught me alot of patience, love, wit, focus but most importantly to put ME at the fore front of each decision. It has been definitely easily said than done but i have learnt not to think of the what ifs or what nots or what will tomorrow bring but to deal with today as it is what is important and will never be the same again.

There are a few things am trying to better myself in. The first thing, which am sure most of us are guilty of, is to tame my self pity as am very good at that, i would rather say “why me?” or “poor me” than to actually understand the situation. Am also trying to keep my spirit alive and happy than getting mad at everyone who does me wrong. Nothing breaks my soul than anger & regret and i choose to be better than that, other than be a sour puss all the time as people are bound to get on my nerves ever so often.

For my lifestyle resolution, the first should be fitness and health as a priority. Going to gym has always been a huge challenge for me (i’d rather jump up and down to Move your Body – Beyonce) but since i have begun, its kinda growing on me and soon, it will be a good addiction for me because it helps me tame my anxiety (as you might know, i suffer from that too) plus i can finally get into my once favorite pair of House of Dereon jeans without the whole rolling on the floor to zip up situation. LOL!

My favorite and most exciting try for the year is MORE ADVENTURE, whether it is moving into a new place, out of an old place, trying cheese and wine (much better combo than i imagined) learning a new language, salsa dancing, interior decor, painting, walking under the moonlight, inviting people into my heart, strolls on the beach under the sunset, watching late night movies in the cinema or just trying out new cuisines (am loving the Italian very berry panna cotta) All the things that life is made of, am adding little by little to my memory box and LOVING every bit of it.

It is all about taking that first step and the rest will follow like a baby’s first steps.
