New Year Resolutions?

When people make New Year resolutions, it makes me happy that they have goals they wanna fulfil.

Everyone needs to have a plan. Be it superficial like learning how to play a guitar or something else like learning to let people go when they don’t need you anymore.

None of your resolutions are easy. Otherwise, you would’ve already done it.

You feel that New Year is a time to set your goals and you’ll actually follow it. That’s really hard. I don’t know about you but I tend to stop halfway anyways.

The resolutions is just an excuse for me to feel satisfied. So trust me, you need to remind yourself of your goals every single day.

Don’t let your resolutions be pushed and before you know it, the year has ended.

You’re overthinking about a certain activity? Just get up and get it done. Work towards it whenever you can and even if the end of 2017 is far away, just keep going. You’ll get closer and you’ll even exceed your goal.

If it’s learning Hip Hop, be proactive. You wanna take classes? You need to pay for those? Do something, get some cash. Pay for it. Obviously legal stuff.

But c’mon, you can always learn by yourself. There’s Youtube and websites. Be independent and proactive. You need time and effort and to constantly remind yourself of your goals. Think about it.

I don’t have particular resolutions but I just tell myself to constantly grow and be a better person.

Importantly, think about how, every priority and decision you make, will affect your future. Big or small.

But I truly believe becoming an understanding and open-minded about most issues is how we all should be. In this era, with gender inequality, racism, cultural issues etc., this is important. Make this place a better place for everyone and not just you.

Think about how it can impact you and the people around you. It’s your life.

I’ve always wanted to learn to let go of people and things. And I’ve had a hard time. It’s not easy for me. I don’t forget, I never forget. I just try my best to focus on myself and the people and issues that matter. Keep reminding myself and by the end of the year, I’d already done that. No stopping there, this is a life resolution. But maybe I’ll just keep working to be a better me.

The moment you stop thinking about it, time is gone. And whatever change it is, it will be for the better.

Think about stepping into 2018? What do you wanna feel? What do you want to have achieved? You’ll never know when your opportunity at life is taken away, anything can happen anytime, every day is a chance.

Time isn’t always here. So use it.


Love & Other Shit, Short Stories


One day, there was a girl. 

She lost her way to her grandmother’s house. 

She came across a beautiful meadow. 

Instantly, a subtle sweet smell reeled her back. She knew she had to take a look.
With a turn of her heel, she spun around and walked towards it. 

She felt compelled. Something was pulling her in and it was more than just the scent.

She began threading through the meadows; leaves tickling her ankles, petals brushing against her calves. 
Somehow, she couldn’t put her finger on where exactly the smell was bringing her. 

She leaned down and took a sniff of the poppy below. Nope, it’s not the one. 

Taking a few steps deeper, a pretty flower, with rough purple edges and a pretty shine, caught her eye. 

Trampling on the poppies, she reached down to the odd flower. 
The moment she swooped it up, she could already smell it.

Indeed it was where the smell is coming from. Smiling to herself, she admired it’s beauty. She thought about how she never smelled anything so nice. Or held something so precious. Or looked at anything so beautiful before.

She also noticed that it’s the only one in the field. She felt like the luckiest girl alive.

Blinking a few times, she looked around and frowned. 

Instead, she was now in the middle of the meadows, lost yet again. 

Just like falling in and out of love.
