A Little Happy

A little happy is all it ever takes Somebody else just tell you that it’s worth fighting A single step becomes a leap a faith That’s when you realize just starting flying

Avril Lavigne dropped her latest single today, titled Fly! It’s a really meaningful song as she released it in association with the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games. Quoted a verse from the song above, the lyrics for Fly are really meaningful, and applicable in different circumstances, no matter what you may be going through currently. So so happy for this song to be released so timely, serving as a source of motivation (& a new song to get hooked on to) amidst these few hectic & insane weeks. With the submission of the final project today, I can finally embark on focused preparations for the upcoming finals. Less than a month before the end of finals and the start of a little getaway, before returning back to fulfilling commitments all over again. Packed summer ahead with many events revolving around my passion, so I’m actually pretty much looking forward to summer break! It’ll be tiring, but a different kind of tired – a fun & definitely meaningful one at that. tumblr_nmo1slc9uG1s62z8ro1_400

People talk about closure, but I don’t buy it. When someone blasts a hole in your life, it tends to stay open. If that wound heals, the surface remains tainted by scars that sink deeper. I do believe in healing. But losing someone, or being hurt by another isn’t something you just move on from. You don’t go back to the same person you were before. It isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But there’s no denying that once inflicted, even healed wounds have now become a part of you.

This is a new perspective of things, worth pondering over. I guess it’s the same concept of people saying that things are just masking over each other, and yet no matter how deeply embedded or hidden away they are, they still exist. It’s still there, you just don’t see it at the surface level. Embrace the differences, the ups and downs in your life; feel thankful for being strong enough to handle the tough times, feel grateful for the little happy things that occur, for they all matter. Saw this quote on Tumblr a few days back, posting it here because I really love & believe in the idea/concept of soulmates 🙂

A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out & we can be completely & honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are & not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person.

Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.

Alright till the next time, everyone go listen to Avril’s song okay please support her & the incredible song Fly yaaay okay bye x

This is how you lose her.

You lose her when you forget to remember the little things that mean the world to her: the sincerity in a stranger’s voice during a trip to the grocery, the delight of finding something lost or forgotten like a sticker from when she was five, the selflessness of a child giving a part of his meal to another, the scent of new books in the store, the surprise short but honest notes she tucks in her journal and others you could only see if you look closely.

You must remember when she forgets.

You lose her when you don’t notice that she notices everything about you: your use of the proper punctuation that tells her continuation rather than finality, your silence when you’re about to ask a question but you think anything you’re about to say to her would be silly, your mindless humming when it is too quiet, your handwriting when you sign your name in blank sheets of paper, your muted laughter when you are trying to be polite, and more and more of what you are, which you don’t even know about yourself, because she pays attention.

She remembers when you forget.

You lose her for every second you make her feel less and less of the beauty that she is. When you make her feel that she is replaceable. She wants to feel cherished. When you make her feel that you are fleeting. She wants you to stay. When you make her feel inadequate. She wants to know that she is enough and does not need to change for you, nor for anyone else because she is she and she is beautiful, kind and good.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.
