Tranquility



I love to sit down by the bay and look at the sea.  I do this sometimes with a cup of coffee, other times with a book.  Most often, I just sit there and look beyond.


I stay there not to wonder nor to be amazed by the vast expanse of the sky and the wilderness of the sea.  No to dream of wandering on the lands beyond.


But to just clear my mind.  Find peace and tranquility.  To forget about me and everything else.  That few moment of bliss - I treasure so much.


An irony is that while I'm writing this entry, my heart is bursting from too much emotions.  Hate, frustrations, fear, anger, desperation...


The photos in this post are what keeps me company in those little bits of heaven; the clouds, the sky, the sea... Tranquility.


Enjoy them as I did.  Have a good day!

Finding Courage To Make A Way


source: daily insight

"If opportunity doesn't knock build a door."
                                             - Milton Berle

I thought I was intelligent.

After 30 years of earthly existence, only then I realized I was not.  For a few measures, YES, maybe.  But mostly, I don't think so.  Looking back and counting my blessings, the few measures I was wise enough are decisions that are more than good enough.  So yeah, I was happy.

But then there's these not good enough.  The things that ripped off my confidence and made me struggle more than I should have.  No, I'm not blaming anyone.  It was me.  My unwise decisions.  Letting go of opportunities, which I had in many ways.  So lucky the heavens thread my path with chances.  But fool that I am, lost them instead.

Am not saying that I no longer have my chances now.  Still have many of them. Then, only now did I realize that I was not so good in looking out for opportunities, or counting my blessings.  I don't know it's a good one until it was gone.  It was hard enough when you're not really intelligent as you think you are, but with self esteem below where it should be - disaster.

So I thought I'd remind myself that if I think there was no opportunity for me... I'll build one.

What do I really want to say here?

It's THAT - no matter, whatever, as long as I know where I am going, even when the road's not clear, even when I do not have the resources, even when I'm alone, even when I'm stripped off of everything - I can do it.  I must do it.  I must FIND a WAY.
