|Background & Quote|
So here I am trying to fill in all the tasks due and tasks I need to do in advance this lazy and humid Sunday. I was actually answering some queries and trying to keep that red number on top of the page to a minimum when I was finally inspired to write this short post. I have to do this quick since I'm barely there yet and I still have so many things on my plate. Anyway, I'm sharing this quote which I feel like my current state is. I found myself in a recurring loop of striving hard and working too much. There's a thin line, eh? But these two dispositions are actually different. The former, being what I feel right now, means I still want to push myself and prove myself. I know there is more than I can do than this. While the latter just means you're letting your fire burn too fast that it will eventually reduce you to smoke and ashes if you're not careful. There was a time that I nearly finished the wick of my candle. But here I am trying to be more positive and sunny about it. I still believe that it's a matter of changing how you think about things, how you take them--if you will absorb the negativity or not--and balancing all your passions at the same time. It's finding that little light in every obstacle you encounter and every boss monster on that level of the game you face. If you need to take a break, please do. If you need to play a game, read that book, draw or paint, or even binge eat, you're welcome to do so. As long as you give yourself a breather once in a while. Heck, you can also give yourself that damn pair of shoes you've been drooling over or a rack of dresses. All that matters is you never lose yourself in the process and hold on to it through your favorite things. Thank you, Sound of Music for reminding me.
