I’ve been in such a weird mood lately, but weird in a good way. I often go through phases where I keep transitioning my lifestyle and reevaluating things that I’ve been holding onto; however, this time is different. I want to travel more, read more, spend less time on my phone, minimize my wardrobe, stop watching TV, finish what I started, live with intension and absorb every experience.

Of course, it wasn’t always like this. I know how it is to go about your day and try not to let the depression interrupt your productiveness. I know how it is be plagued by a feeling of incompleteness and not be able to make sense of things. I know how it is to be the only one not laughing because you didn’t get the joke, all the while being surrounded by a room full of people and feeling utterly alone.

Although I’m in a better place now, I still think about those days because it reminds me to never take anything for granted and to appreciate what I already have. In our privileged lives, we have no struggles at all except for the ones we create for ourselves. In fact, the world around you tells you everything you need to know, if only you care to listen to it.

    People take challenges as a never-ending anchor, pulling you down, deep into the ocean. It is often conceived as a negative force that wouldn’t leave you alone. We sometimes refused to see the good side of everything and blame the world due to our negativity. Like riding a roller coaster, instead of being anxious about how high, fast or bumpy the ride might be, it should be something that gives you excitements and makes you say “Whats next?” in a good way. 🙂
