Simplifying Things

Call me a living cliche, but I think a momentum like New Year is a very good opportunity to start over… if you have something you want to re-do, that is.

My 2013 was started very positively, with the hope that I will maintain things consistently throughout the year.

You know, I think one second before new year is the moment where heaven is overflown by prayers. Imagine at every corner of the world, billions of people secretly whisper their wishes at the same time. Even though my new year was celebrated in an overcrowded, full-of-heat, full-of-mud, super loud kind of place, I did not forget the wishes I made in my heart that second before 2013.

This year, I simply just want to be happy. And whether it’s with my own self or with somebody new, I just want to be happy. Because I know I deserve it. Every human being does.

It’s only the second week of the year, but I have done a spring cleaning of my clothes, books, cosmetics, basically everything in my room. I love throwing away old things, makes me feel alive πŸ˜† There’s still a hoarder inside me somewhere deep down, but starting the year I just became brutal πŸ˜†

I also started the “Count Your Blessings 2013” project. Oh, I love this kinda thing, it’s so me! πŸ˜€ And so far I never missed a day! Well what do you know, it’s only the 7th day of the year, but I’m pretty sure I’m gonna make a good progress. πŸ˜€

I tried to watch more movies and read more books and listen to more songs. Those are simple things that magically enrich you without you even knowing.

I’m focusing my life on my work, my writings, and my travel plans.

I’m doing more sports, and I keep trying to consistently lead a healthy life. I eat better food and I control what kind of meals I put inside my body! πŸ˜€

Half of this year I’m gonna enjoy everything I could not afford back then, and the other half I’m gonna start to save more (while not forgetting to still enjoy life). And I hope I can support my family better this year. Amen! πŸ˜€

I know I’m always gonna have my best friends around, and that makes me feel safe. It’s a good feeling to know that whatever you do, wherever you go, and whenever life surprises you, you always have them, and that you are loved. πŸ™‚

And speaking of life and love… this past year has shaped me to become a very simple person too.

I had dealt with so many craps in my life, and had been treated like crap too… and as you grow up, you then realize what a waste of time and energy it is to dwell with people who don’t deserve your attention. Let alone your mercy.

I know speaking up is good, but someday in your life, you’re gonna meet some people who don’t even need your reactions ’cause their heads are so full of themselves that they won’t be able to absorb anything you say or do.

And life has taught me very well, that when you meet those kinda people, you don’t stay in the drama. You just simply walk away… sometimes without even saying a word.

You’re simplifying things. You throw out things you don’t need, you stop doing anything useless, you stop dating anyone unworthy, and you focus only to the things that make you happy, enriched, fulfilled, and alive.

When you lead a happy life, you spread the same energy to your surroundings, and you become even happier. πŸ˜€

And whether it’s still gonna be with your own self or not…

…life will be splendid in the end. πŸ™‚

That’s my ultimate wish πŸ™‚
