181: Pictures: Moments

“Do you know how there are moments when the world moves so slowly you can feel your bones shifting, your mind tumbling? When you think that no matter what happens to you for the rest of your life, you will remember every last detail of that one minute forever?” ~ Jodi Picoult; Nineteen Minutes
Picture: Moments will be one of my tags here in my blog. Due to my last post Sunset I had realized the importance of savoring memories so I wanted to dedicate entries that focuses on me picturing random moments. More on my flickr.

180: Sunset

Don't you think that there's something so strangely saddening when we watch sunset? You know, I seriously love sunset than sunrise. Maybe it's the fact that I am a loner by heart, that's why sunset appeals to me more than sunrise. You might wonder why I associate 'loner' to sunset, but it's something that I have read that people who prefers sunset are lonely. Long story, don't ask. hah.

But I am writing about sunset because for the past few days there are a lot of things that has ended and has been ending. And sunset is the perfect reminder when something ends. It's a sad but basic truth: when something start, it has to end. Sunset and Sunrise. But you know it's a human nature (or so I think) that we do not try to dwell on endings. Thus, when we reach that point when something ended we felt surprised. We try not to embrace on the thought that probably the one sitting next to you will soon  be leaving your life. The one holding your hand at the moment will be letting go. Yes, admit it we never thought of such thing but it's an obvious and simple truth.

Okay we all know that things end, so the question now is there's nothing we can do about it? Yes, we might not be able to make something last forever. But memories does. It's so simple but sometimes we take it for granted. Cherish that something so important to us, make a memories. Cherish the moments with someone, with something while it lasts. ~

179: Inhaling a Lungful of Air

Hello dear fellow readers!

If you want me to be honest at this moment I feel hopeless. I know, I know entertaining this emotion is simply so contradictory of my so-called 'better-future project' but you know honestly, it's okay. I think it's okay to back down once in a while, to say that yes I'm human I can feel that sense of incredible hopelessness, that bleakness that seem to envelope me at the moment, that frustration and painful reminder that nothing has been happening to my plans. It's okay, because we are humans. I am a human. It's okay to feel. It's okay to embrace and acknowledge emotions. 

But you know in this moment even though I think nothing has been happening, that I think I haven't gotten there, that nothing has been happening, I'm not stopping. Yes, I am wallowing in this negative emotion but not to stop me from pursuing my dreams but to re-think of my strategy. 

While thinking about how I allowed myself to feel, it reminded me of how I felt when I climbed the mountain last month. During my climb, despite of how much I wanted to reach the destination in hurry I felt that need to stop. And you know it's fine. I thought I don't need to reach the top in a hurry. It will take time but I'll reach it if I just continue. So yes I allowed myself to take a rest, to relax, and allow myself to recuperate for a minute. But I did not stop. I continued until I got to the top.

And at this moment, this is what I am doing. There's no way I am backing down. I'm taking a lungful of air for a moment but I'll proceed.

To Perseverance,

178: November Storm

Don't we just love the beginning of a month? Seriously! Beginning of the month is the best reminder that yes, we could start all over again. And as usual, I start the month with a theme, so for this month I have entitled my theme as 'November Storm'. 

But you know it sort of give me a daunting feel when I re-read my theme's name. But the reason why I wanted to call it as such is because I feel like I am going through a storm this November. I blame that what had influenced me to aptly call my theme for this month as 'Storm' was because of the impending challenges in the office. 

Do not get me wrong I love the challenges that I have to face at work but I wouldn't deny that I dread the pressure and stress. Hence, just like in a storm, it's the process of preparing on the impending doom, getting over it and the lessons/rewards in the end. So, it was the right choice, and just like in every storm I have encountered (typhoon actually!) I'm positive that I'll get through it unscathed. 

~ ooo ~

Anyway, I'm proud to say that I have already bought my dream camera Panasonic Lumix GF3 and I'm having a great time experimenting it. You can see my practice shots @ my flickr. Let me know how I am doing. 

Last, I started going back on reading. I just finished reading Lois Lowry's the Giver (read my little thought about it) and I'm currently reading Sarah Dessen's The Truth About Forever. I think the Truth About Forever is promising. I am already in love with its quiet writing. :) 

Okay, I'll end this rant with Lowry's quote:
