Never chase happiness..

Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder…

— Henry David Thoreau



This quote is one of my favorite quotations of all time. For me, this is all about freedom of someone you like or love that no matter how you love them to be with you, you have to set them free even if it means hurting your own self because SOMEDAY, IT WILL BE OKAY. Ironically, happiness, according to the quote, is described as setting someone free. Do you think we will be happy if we set things/people who we love SOOO MUCH free and away from us?




However, it also helps us realize that if we will force them, there’s a greater chance that forcing them will make them avoid us more as if we have a communicable disease. Hence, we have to set them free and just wait for the right time they will return (if ever); if not, then that would mean we have to enjoy or focus on the other things we have in our life. For an instance, letting go of a gf/bf is such a heartbreaking thing, right? And so you’ll try your best to win them back, without knowing that it will force them to dodge more. SAD REALITY. But if you try yourself on focusing on other things like making a better you, with one step at a time, you will be able to move-on and guess what? Your ex might return if in case, you’re meant to be. Another example is, getting what you really want like being accepted to the school you want to be in. If a situation never allows you, it might be a terrible experience, but, if you will wait for the right time, then a better school might offer you a chance and that would mean a better opportunity.


Ultimately, what I am trying to emphasize is that we never knew what the tide brings so never settle for less and open your eyes to some better views other than what you see because you can achieve happiness, if only, you will allow yourself to be happy and change your negative perception. SOMEDAY, IT WILL BE OKAY 🙂


To Love Like I Love the Rain

In PHOTOS, Random, Reflection on May 7, 2012 at 9:46 am




I wonder if I can love people the same way I love rain:
To be in love with someone madly yet selflessly. To let the other person be mad, crazy, beautiful, unpredictable and soothing without having to pin them down and make them have to stay. To just be happy each time he or she is there and to be happier still when they stay the week, and to not be sad when they go away because you know they’re coming back. To love the person and expect nothing in return except to know the person is being himself or herself. And finally to know that there are also people whom that person touches in his or her own way, making others fall in love with them too. So you have to share freely and happily, at the same time knowing you are special and that no two people can love the person quite the same way.

God’s Coffee

In INSPIRATIONAL STORIES, PHOTOS on May 7, 2012 at 9:02 am

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some
expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

“If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. 

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us.

God brews the coffee, not the cups………. Enjoy your coffee!

“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.” 

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Life is like a 1000 page book. You want to quit halfway through, but then you realize you have a lot left to look forward to.” — Unknown

You are reading this blog because you want to know the TIPS ON HOW TO ENJOY LIFE TO THE FULLEST. 

Life has a lot of simple things you can enjoy. But if you move too fast you will overlook most of them, so make it ONE STEP AT A TIME. Don’t be in hurry, slow down and see the world around you, as it’s truly an amazing place. Taking time to see things as they are – beautiful, awe inspiring, almost magical in a way, will help you pause and take less for granted the life you had before. In this way you will enjoy life a little bit more.

  1.  Endeavor to change the way you look at things. Always look at the bright side. Don’t let your mind think negativities and difficulties. Look at the good and positive side of every situation.
  2. Watch your thoughts. Whenever you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, start thinking of pleasant and desirable things.
  3. Enjoy your meal. Don’t just eat. Taste it and appreciate its richness.
  4. Feel and play  the music ,not just listen to it. More than just listening, playing music allows you to express yourself like playing guitar or a piano.
  5.  Think of solutions, not problems.
  6. Each day do something good for yourself. It can be something small, such buying a book, reading a few pages of an inspiring book or article, eating something you love, watching you favorite program on TV, going to a movie,taking pictures, getting a massage or just having a stroll on the beach.
  7. Watch funny comedies that make you laugh.
  8.  Each day do at least one act to make others happy. When you make someone happy, you become happy, and then people try to make you happy.
  9. Always look at what you have done and not at what you haven’t.
  10. Browse your photo album for your treasured memories.
  11. Do not envy people who are happy. On the contrary, be happy for their happiness.
  12. Always expect happiness.
  13.  Associate with happy people, and try to learn from them to be happy. Keep it in your mind that happiness is contagious.
  14. Smile more often.
  15. DON’T EXPECT. Expectation leads to disappointments.

To wrap up everything, life is a gift from God. Treasure it, Love it. Live it because life is too short to waste time on negativities and difficulties. ENJOY and have fun. 😀
