i believe in second chances. not only that but i've grown to learn to keep moving forward. no matter what brings you down, what pulls you to your lowest, makes you feel like you are just a piece a shit. there's nowhere to look but up. because in the end, everything will be alright. everything will be just fine. be happy that you are still living, be thankful for everything you have, for the friends who have your back and for those who tell you that they hope to see you suceed. be happy that you have those people.

the world is in our hands, we just got to know what we could make of it.

DAY ( 87 )
“Do you light up a room or do you dim a room?”
A question was asked on the phone for our daily momentum call where Mr. Cahill was talking about self image. Basically when you walk in a room, do you light it up or do you dim it? Do you walk around smiling or do you have this negative vibe with you? I realized that energy means a lot to your image. While you taking care of your appearance, you got to be aware what kind of vibe you give off since that also adds to your appearance. While you may be attractive, your personality can make or break you.
I want to be light up a room and give good vibes all around.

I’m not sure if this picture is a strand of hair or the red string of fate but lets pretend it is the red string of fate haha.
According the wikipedia, this is a definition of the red string of fate.

The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break. This myth is similar to the Western concept of soulmates or a twin flame. 

Call me cheesy but I actually believe in this. Or it’s something I have throughly thought about. Who exactly is our soulmate? Who exactly is the person we’re going to marry? Isn’t it funny that somewhere right now, your soulmate is just out there living life and you may or may not know who it is as of this moment?
Maybe you’re going to meet them tomorrow in a coffee shop like in those romantic comedies. Maybe they’re someone who you constantly pass by in the street on your way to work and you dont even know it’s your soulmate. Maybe they’re someone you’re already associated with. Maybe it’s the person you’re currently with. Maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s your best friend. Maybe it’s a complete stranger. Either way, they are placed on the same earth as you, breathing the same air as you are, going through the days as you are, and just living life just like you are.
And you have no clue.
At least I dont.
I know I’m not going to realize it even the moment I meet him. It’s not going to be some Disney movie where he will waltz in my life, we meet eyes, finish each others song and get married the next day. Because that’s not realistic! I believe finding true love is a process. Whether it’s someone I know or someone I dont know, it’ll happen. It’ll happen when I least expect it. And I’ll realize one day when I’m spending time with him. Wherever we may be, whether I’m sitting in the passenger seat on a night drive, on some romantic date, on the telephone with him, or just sitting on the couch watching a movie; I will look at him and it will hit me. I’ll turn to him and think that ‘Oh this is him.’
And would that judgement be final? Who knows. Maybe I made the wrong judgement. Maybe the next day, he will leave. Maybe he’s not the one and maybe I’ll be “devastated” And you think “why would you go out with another person if you’re not even sure if ~they’re the one?”
Because why not take the risk? How will you ever find out without taking that risk?
When things dont work out with previous guys, when feelings are not mutual, I dont fret over it and cry anymore. Because I tell myself that there’s a reason to this. There’s a reason to this because it’s something I need to experience. Because that wasn’t meant to be and there is someone out there better for me. My ‘soulmate’ wasn’t this person but it’s someone out there that is worth the tears, fights, heartbreaks I have experienced with the past.
I’m not one constantly thinking ‘I’m going to meet my soulmate today!’ since there’s a bigger picture to life. But it’s endearing to know that somewhere out there is the person I’m going to spend my life with. There’s someone out there who will be there for me through thick and thin, til death do us part. Someone who I will do anything for and they will do the same for me. Someone who will achieve the greatest dreams with me and just live life together. The day when I actually “meet” him will be a good one. 
Until then, we’ll just have to see :)

I always wanted to go on a date with someone (whoever they may be) that I like in a coffee shop,
I dont know. I think it’s nice. I think just sitting there with someone across from you, sipping on a latte, and just talking is nice. You open up some part of your life, and share it to them; setting it down upon the table infront of you two. Then they do the same. Whether you’re sharing what has happened in your day, a happy story, a sad story or dreams you want to achieve in the future, ideas you want to discuss; you’re opening some part of your mind and heart to this person over a cup of coffee. And it would go back and forth like tennis.
Then at the end of it, you leave with a good conversation, a good connection with them. It just feels intimate.

I’m not used to wearing glasses.  It’s weird because there was a time when I wore glasses for like a whole month but now I wear my contacts like all the time. I woke up this morning, put on my glasses and was like ‘Whoa this is weird’ I’ve gotten so used to wearing color contacts that I find it weird that they’re not my actual eye color.

And I wonder if that’s the reason why we girls use make-up, color contacts, hair colors etc. Are they enhancers? Enhancing our looks? And I’m not against that at all. I’m all for prettying up and everything. I like getting new haircuts, putting on some makeup on certain events etc etc

But using these enhancers because you think you’re only pretty when you have them? 

You are beautiful with and without them.

The way you dress, the way you wear your hair, wear makeup should be your style :] But never to hide things. To think that you’re only pretty when you wear makeup, wear certain clothes, or have enhancers is not right. You should love yourself! Make up and no make up. Contacts and glasses. 

Because I believe the thing that really attracts people is the way you present yourself. Someone who is positive, has confidence, and self-esteem. Beauty can only go so far but confidence and self-esteem you have with yourself will attract people :] Personality is key. I always believe that. 

I’m not saying I’m a walking confident person. I have my awkward moments definitely. (Even ask my friends haha)  I’m still happy with myself! I love myself (in the most non-narcissistic way possible). I wouldn’t want to change anything about me physically.

So what I learned this morning was ‘Hey I wear glasses but that’s okay, that’s me and that’s cool. It doesn’t alter or hide anything about me’ 

Awesome.

I didn’t do anything special. I didn’t have any fancy dates. I didn’t get teddy bears. I didn’t get chocolates from anyone special. Or neither did I spend it with a significant other.

But I really liked my Valentines day and I didn’t feel lonely at all.

I learned to appreciate my friends more. I appreciated my family more. It was nice. Like I had that really goodwarm  feeling inside of me. You realize how lucky you are to have the people in your life that are always there for you. Who have made a significant impact in your life.

I think Valentines Day is more than just showing your lover that you love them. More than the cute cards, teddy bears, chocolates and hearts. It’s a day to kind of take the time to appreciate what you have going for your life and to acknowledge the people in your life. It’s when you realize that ‘Hey I should show that I care about them more’. It’s being a lot friendlier to people you know and maybe people you dont know. 

I mean, yeah it’s one day. It’s nice to feel loved in some way for one day right? I like that. I like taking a day, taking time away from the business of everyday life to show people that I love them. Even just a simple greeting. Behind it is ‘Happy Valentines Day. I really care about you and thank you for being in my life’
