10 reasons why "adulting" is hard

Image
Adulting. The term Adulting is commonly associated with millennials, who often use the word on social media. They define "adulting" as "the practice of behaving like a responsible adult" such as paying bills, maintaining your home or holding down a job.  As a freshly proclaimed adult, I can say that I can relate to the concept of "adulting" so I listed a few reasons why Adulting is just hard.

1. Your paycheck is here and gone after a few minutes
     This is a top reason why Adulting is hard. You are entitled to pay for everything. We can't even go on a crazy shopping spree or even get a nice massage because there's a monthly bill that rolls in and we're expected to pay for it. Paying sucks.

2. Trying to maintain a social life
       One of the most crucial thing when it comes to Adulting is trying to make time for friends. Having a social life once in a while is important for us to keep us sane. But this is just so hard to maintain especially …

Living Your Life to the Fullest

Image
We all knew the word "YOLO" or you only live once and that life is tragically short. It’s easy to look at people who are in seventh heaven and assume they don’t understand what pain you are feeling. The older you get, the more you realize that happiness really takes time and effort. People who smile in public have been through every bit as much as the people who are drowning with emotions, crying, frowning etc., only that they just have the courage and strength to smile through it anyway. Once Mark Twain said "The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time." So now, if you would ask yourself, how do you make sure you’re living life to the fullest? 
Remember to decide what’s important to you. It doesn’t matter what it really is. Don’t do what other people force you to do. Don’t settle your values. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t push yourself to do it. Don’t compromise your internal code of ethics. Life …

Be a rainbow in someone else's cloud

Image
We live in a world full of anger and hatred, everyone has their own struggles and battles to fight yet we often don't care how to make it a better place to live in.  We do not take enough time to look around us and appreciate everything that we have. It can be easy to think that one person couldn't possibly do enough to change this world. But the truth is, we just don't act unless there's something in it for us.
        To be a rainbow in someone else's cloud is a beautiful and powerful quote from Maya Angelou. It tells us that we must try to be the person who puts their feelings and worries aside in order to lift other spirits up when they're down. We must be the person who brings a smile to someone who is going through a rough patch in their life. Because a positive attitude reminds people that every cloud has a silver lining. We must always choose to be the rainbow in their cloud so we can help them open their eyes to see that there is beauty in ever…

Why We Broke Up?

Why we broke up?
They say love is like the sun. It's like what we automatically look for in the morning. The warm embrace that tells us 'yes you're still alive'. It gives us energy to live our life and also to love, like a spotlight, it teaches us where to go or how can we go to the places we wanted to see.
They say love is like the sun. We have been waiting for a while for it to shine. That even if it's hard for our eyes to stare at it, we don't give up. We want it, we wanted it. That even we know we'll get hurt in front of it, we'll still risk. We love it, we loved it.
But just like the sun, we will all get tired. But just like the sun, we all need to set and stop for a while, in order for us to know why we broke up.
Maybe I love you and I miss you is not enough. Maybe we looked for I trust you, I understand you and I'm sorry.
Maybe it's not just the right time. Maybe we all have dreams in our life that we are so eager to achieve it, we have …

Keep Going, You Are Getting There

Image
Have you ever felt like you're trapped doing the same thing everyday? Going through a rough time? or do feel like quitting your job, school or whatever it is that you're tired of? You are not alone. Believe it or not we've all felt this at some point in our lives. Living the same patterns everyday makes you feel unhappy and unfulfilled. But it doesn't mean you need to quit.
I wrote this article to send strength and to tell you that it is okay to feel tired, to pause once in a while, to embrace the lowest moments and to believe in yourself. We all struggle with this kind of situation sometimes, and if you're struggling right now, I think it's time to push through and realign yourself with what you value most in life. 
These days we are more likely to feel hopeless than grateful, we feel like as if nothing makes a difference as if our human civilization is unraveling and we feel like there is nothing we can do about it. The road to our dreams isn't always ea…

Love Is the Closest Thing We Have to Magic

Image
I think that love is the closest thing we have to pure magic. When two people fall in love, they create a kind of bond that no one can touch and see just like tricks and illusions in the world of magic in which our eyes can't recognize. Their world seems like a great place to be in that life seems worthy of living. We say love is close to magic because it is one of the most precious experiences in life. It is a strange and powerful feeling that could make our hearts flutter. People do not want to be called as fools for believing in magic because there is no such thing, but when people fall in love they also fall into a trap of magical feeling and later find their selves believing and swooning over the idea of love.
I personally believe that love is next to magic, but not the kind shown in fairy tales or fantasy movies where at the end people are sprinkled with sparkles and glitters. Love is defined as the closest thing next to magic because people experience a kind of love that c…

Fall In Love with Moments, Live by It

Image
Have you ever wondered what it really feels to live by the moment? Nowadays, we tend to live in a very demanding world in which we expect everything to be just perfect. We are so impatient, we criticize flaws, and tend to forget those who love and always been there for us day in and day out.

We always look to the future that will make us happier. We often think about the transformation we want and that we will be happier once they happen. Or even we think we want more of something to make us happy, may it be material or non material things. It might seem counter-intuitive, but do know that these aren’t the things that make us happy. But it doesn’t mean we don’t want to change or improve everything with our lives, or indeed have more – but that those things alone are unlikely to boost our happiness and contentment, if we are not happy now. Being appreciative and grateful can help us do this by focusing on everything that we have rather than anything that we want. Because if we put conce…
