Dare To Take That Plunge

I suddenly have that emotional pang of writing everything down as fast as i can before i forget.Its like adrenaline. The hot fuzzy feeling lifting me from within.

I somehow feel that human beings like ourselves should push ourselves out there.

To achieve what we really want and to be whom we truly are.

Life is too short isnt it? To just sit around and mope. To complain about things that make us tick and to find the odd things that relate to us the most.

Find out what makes you want to wake up in the morning and be the best at what you want to be. Its not easy, I know but its not impossible either.

Do the things that you fear the most and you will feel yourself unravel into a person you never thought you could be.

Be bold and daring enough to take that plunge. Nothing great will ever be achieved in your personal comfort zone.

Nothing great was ever achieved without trying.

Useless Mouth

This world is encompassed by human beings,
Who see defeat as weakness,
And mistakes as something they never commit.

This world has become a harsh and violent battlefield,
Where pride and money become toys for addicts.

This world has become nothing more than a barren land,
Of dirt waiting to be filled with dead corpses.

This world will only be an object for those,
To chant wars and wait for armed responses.

But today,
This world deserves more,
Than your useless mouth and tattered acts of throwing rocks.

I Want To Grow & I Don’t Want To Stop

When I was young I remember constantly trying to be the best I could. When my Dad asked if I was tired or if I needed rest, I always said no. I didn’t want him to feel like I gave up. Even if its nothing like that at all. I guess its how I was raised, to shun out any negative word that might drown me of my own capability.

At the age of nine I started getting serious on sports. I attended Badminton coaching and intense training. I became good at Badminton, but I always thought I was never good enough. I represented my school and it was a good experience of winning and losing. Oh, after starting Badminton I stopped playing the organ at Grade 6 and took up Taekwondo till I got my blue belt and eventually stopped too due to priorities on academics. It was hard to set my mind to focus completely on a single thing and to let the whole universe conspire to help me achieve it. I was afraid I couldn’t be good at other things.

In the midst of my Badminton training etc. I became a runner too. Long distance was my thing. It always has. Again, I felt I was good but not good enough. I remember training side by side beside my Dad late in the evening and timing myself. I remember the tracks and the paths i took to test my endurance. I believed I wanted to be Daddy’s Girl. To run just like he did during his younger days.

I have driven and shaped myself so much to this day that I am constantly on the move. Honestly, I believe taking naps are a waste of time, I believe that rest is something that only people who are super exhausted deserve. I believe I don’t deserve rest. I am in a constant loophole of trying to figure out all the possible things that I can and should be doing to improve myself. I want to grow and I don't want to stop.

Today I realise why I always thought I was never good enough for Badminton, playing the organ, Taekwondo or Running. Its because I believe, I and we are all talented enough to master many things instead of just one. Honestly I still don't know what I'm really good at and I'm still discovering myself. Experience matters the most doesn't it?

"You can be good at one thing and one thing only,
but you can also be good at many things" 🙂

Silence & Voices

There are moments when silence overtakes,
- and the sound of the fan whirling is the only company you get,

There are moments when silence overtakes
- and the sound of your own heartbeat is the most comforting yet,

There are moments when silence overtakes,
- and the tears just gush down your face,

There are moments when silence overtakes,
- and shutting out the world makes a better place,

There are moments when the voices in your head,
- become the better of you and take the pain away,

There are moments when the voices in your head,
- push you to your limits till you break,

There are moments when the voices in your head,
- become the enemy you never wish to hate,

There are moments when the voices in your head,
- push you to be more than what you call fate.
