Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Mirror, mirror on the wall
My one friend through my rise and fall
Hide my sorrows, hide them all
My tears conceal
My disappointments care not to reveal
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Reflect my strength, show it all
Mirror, mirror that I see
Only show them who I wish to be


On Life and Living

So it happens that I am having this difficult time at work and it’s a stressful period. As a worrier, I usually resort to listening to music and some inspirational reading (and a bit of nagging 🙂) to relieve the stress. This tweet was the best inspiration I read today. Yes, life is much larger than work. I am not really worried about the exploding stars; after all I believe this is a natural phenomenon :). Nevertheless, there will always be work tomorrow, and seriously I do not want to spend the rest of my life worrying. A moment passed from our life is a moment forever lost. Today, I choose to reshuffle my priorities and focus on what really matters. I choose to spend more time with the people I love. I choose to cherish every moment. I choose to take a daily walk and enjoy the beauty of nature. I choose to find more time for my hobbies. I choose to collect moments. Last but not least, I choose to live rather than just make a living.

I write, therefore I am

pen-idea-bulb-paper-largeI write because I am alive; or is it that I am alive because I write?  I wonder..
I can’t really find a particular reason for why I started writing. There is no specific day, time or situation, in fact, whereby I am triggered to write. It is just that every once in a while I feel my head overloaded with thoughts that remain vague until I hold a paper and pen and start to write. I would write down any word or phrase that comes to mind, and then I would shuffle/combine the different words/phrases together, similar to assembling puzzle pieces, to  come up at the end with a neat piece of writing..which would reflect my thought.
I write because I relax. Writing may have become my way of meditation to which I resort every now and then.
Last but not least, I write because this makes me happy.
