I have been meaning to write, but with more than 10 drafts in my draft box, you can tell what happened. But before the year 2017 ends, I'd like to reflect on the things I've been so lucky to have realised early on in my life. Just perspectives. What used to be "What don't you get from … Continue reading 2017 REVELATIONS
I'm just kidding. I don't have an answer to this question, and I'm sure no one does. However, I came up with a plausible conjecture, one that is a mesh of many different reads. And after reading this, hopefully, it might even provoke you to think for yourself. There simply isn't any inherent meaning to things. This thought … Continue reading The Meaning to Everything
WARNING!! This post will read like a long rant and I've been told it's all over the place and it's understandable since I literally vomited whatever out from my mind. For these past few days, I've been thinking a whole lot; I've been ruminating a lot, wrestling within myself thoughts after thoughts. Additionally, for these … Continue reading P e r c e p t i o n .
What is the meaning of life? I mean if we were to all die later, if not sooner, then what exactly is it that gives our life meaning—or what's the purpose, the point or the very essence of living that makes life worth living? I can't remember when exactly but after experiencing a few profound moments … Continue reading The Meaning of Death
As we live each and every day following a more-or-less routine order—waking, fumbling, doing, eating, bathing, and finally back to sleeping—we inadvertently fall into the pit of taking things for granted. As we successfully live each and every day, unscathed by any significantly dismal news, untouched by the mildly captivating gossips, and unreminded of how short life actually is, … Continue reading Gratitude?
2016 has been a fruitful year for me no doubt; I have grown tremendously; received greatly, and most of all became wiser than any other years combined. I enlisted and got into the Officer Cadet School (OCS) which was filled with young and hopeful cadets with immense pride for whatever reason — and got out, … Continue reading 10 things I’ve learnt in 2016
It's too hard. This isn't fair. It won't work out. I can't do it for sure. I'm not good enough yet. There's no point anyway. It's clearly impossible, I'm sure no one else did it before. These are just some of the lies we constantly feed ourselves, to make ourselves feel better because it seemingly shifts … Continue reading Fear of Failure, Failure to Risk
Will you believe me if I said this very thought to convince people to slow down came to my mind while I was sitting motionlessly, paralysed by my incessant thoughts, in the Medical Centre while waiting for my turn to be called? Funny. In any case, pardon this garbled rumination which was spewed out of me. … Continue reading Aye, slow down.
This is a topic that I've kept in the draft for a long long time. And yes, partly because I procrastinated a lot but it's just because I had to sort out the lot of what I thought about this. Believing that our beliefs will eventually determine what and who we are is actually one … Continue reading Believing your beliefs
This thought hit me a few days back, on one particular evening while I staring into the bathroom mirror at myself, reflecting. Happiness is a choice, do you not agree? I'm sure you wouldn't though, who would? You, facing that same stress and the neverending problems that plague everyone, every day. Not until you finally … Continue reading Happiness is a choice
