Just been observing life as it is lately. Well it does look pretty different compared to how it was before. Looking at people who are currently enjoying what I used to have seems pretty weird. I guess its true that 'everybody has their time to shine'.

And its also true that this life has its highs and lows. I pray that high time to come soon and can't wait. After all that happened, I guess He wanted me to recover by presenting all that I've missed before my eyes. I'm beginning to grasp this new concept about life given to me by God.

The most important part to remember is that we are all individuals with different needs and expectations. This is very important to remember especially to those who have not yet met the One/pressured to tie the knot. Some friends I know find it as mandatory to do certain things at a certain age. Between 13-early 20s : Get a girlfriend/boyfriend, between mid 20s-early 30s : Get married . And it doesn't stop there, 1st to 3rd year of marriage : Have a kid.

Everything seems to have an expiry date these days. I pity those who do not have the means to marry a person yet force themselves to do it. Some would go into huge debts just to pay for gift exchanges, reception etc ...

Though I do not condemn such things, I mean it is after all, a wedding. Something that happens once in your lifetime for most people. But must we be subjected to all the unnecessary financial burden just to materialize a one day fantasy? But hey, if you got the dough, spend it all you want.

Is the amount of $$ a person has, has become the measure for love? how about loyalty and kindness?

Can a loyalty for a person for 8-10 years not be more valuable compared those material things?

The value people put into something nowadays seems very superficial. If love unites you in the first place with that particular person, then it should be the one factor that leads to matrimonial bliss, not how much that person can 'afford' you.

Tradition; it can either shape you or corrupt you.

Putting things in perspective

Well it has been a while since my last entry. A lot of things happened ever since the last entry. I see this blog as a new place I just moved in. Many of the people who used to read my blog have since 'retired' from blogging. Should there be any who likes reading what I write here, do let me know if you would like to be added to my new inner circle I'm creating.

A lot needs to be reconstructed, everything needs to start from scratch all over again. Pardon me if the overall look & feel of this blog seems devoid of pastel colors. I guess having colors doesn't seem to fit what I am feeling right now. Shades of gray seem to go easy on my eyes at the moment. I guess I've seen too much color and when it suddenly disappears without mercy and ruthless efficiency, you lost touch of what color appeals to you anymore. Everything looks gray to me at present time.

Although I try to force myself to see some colors, it fails miserably and dissipates into gray.

In time the hardened skin of my recent experiences shall be peeled little by little. I guess that burning desire to write again propelled me to re-boot this blog again.

Like a drug addict on rehab, I have to say I'm going into the 3rd month of trying to stay sober over what happened. I will write what I feel regardless if others do not understand it. I guess this is part of the rehabilitation process.

A Fresh Start

Everybody deserves a fresh start. So here I am. No more restrictions, no more guidelines. Here we go world !
