A Stickynote

People can be quite cold sometimes. One minute they're all warm and fuzzy, the next they act like you don't matter. Just like that they could bring you down. The kinda thing that makes you feel like you should only exist when it's convenient. 25, with issues, I know. But nevermind that, I'm always grateful for the jagged path He had planned for me anyways. And for all the people that He had chosen to shape me. The good and the not so good.

My auntie once wrote an entry on her blog, on how she would bestow upon her 15 year old self her own words of wisdom if she'd been given the chance to do so. I, on the other hand would probably just let my younger self be. I guess I learn the best the hard way, so to speak. My younger self wouldn't have appreciated the gift of foresight, for the outcome will always somehow be expected. Unpredicted heartbreaks, sorrows, and all those feelings that make you feel like it's the end of the world. Now they're your recipe for strength.

Given an option, hardly anyone would take the road less travelled. This is our nature, we'll fear the things we haven't fathomed. For all you readers out there, I say jump. You'll fall, and you'll hit the ground hard, and you'll feel like hell. But guess what, the next time it won't hurt so bad. Worse things are bound to happen, it's only wise to coarsen up. Thank God I did.

I am not going to give a word of advise to my past self. With the gift of hindsight, I am going to remind my present self instead.

Always remember, to keep your chin up, whenever things don't turn out the way you had hoped. You will one day triumph if you stay strong.

Always remember, to have courage to make mistakes and move forward. Fortune will always favour the brave.

Always remember, to be true to yourself no matter what the world might do to you. The world will shift, but you will only be stagnant if you move along with it.

And most importantly, always remember to trust in Him. It's no fairytale, but He definitely has a plan for you.

I used to have a friend who went round saying "life is a mess, why not make it worse?". Yes life may be a mess and its so easy to make it worst. And then what? Sink into the depth of nothingness may be? Perhaps we might well since nothingness brings humility and His Grace
