Live Well. Laugh Often. Love Much.

What’s the big deal, actually?

I don’t mean to gloss over my relationship with my parents – sometimes I can get so annoyed at them too and throw my tantrums. And that’s normal.

But you should know my style of blogging by now – good things I share.

The not so good things?

I swallow them hard.

So when I got to know that my blog and FB posts have been misrepresented by some others, can you imagine how I felt?

NEVER MIND.

Let’s reflect a bit. At this point in my life, I am considered an adult. If being 32 and married with 3 kids is not adult enough, then I don’t know what is. 😀

I know, I know. I do not completely act like it sometimes right? But isn’t that part of life? As in, we are always growing up, no matter how old we think we are?

One thing that I truly got to thank my parents for is for making me realize that I am worth everything in this world, and that I should never settle for less than what I deserve. Actually I do settle for less sometimes. 😀

They have never failed to give me the support I needed to build a dream to chase after. They believe that I have the talent to reach my goals. Despite the many times I let them down (switched colleges, went from one college (did not graduate) to another college (did not graduate) to polytechnic  (graduated) to NIE (graduated), they were there for me all the way till today.

Sure, I am just a blogger (besides the fact that I run Studiofrost with Nurul)! It is not a big deal to be a blogger – I am paid to blog for others, I often get freebies like cameras and one year supply of diapers for my girls for instance, I received lots of sponsorships for my house renovation, and I was even paid to go for fully paid vacations with my family.

WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL, RIGHT?

 

No, do not get me wrong. I am not bragging. I am not even implying that I am not thankful for what I have been given in life. Sure, some people are luckier than me. Some may not be that lucky, but their happiness might just come in other forms. Not just material things.

ALL I’M SAYING IS, WE MAKE DO WITH WHAT WE HAVE, AND WE BE THANKFUL!

JUST WHAT IS SO DIFFICULT ABOUT THAT?!

As we all know it, nothing hurts more than to know that we are not being appreciated by others. Nothing hurts more than to know that we are seemingly useless in others’ eyes. Nothing hurts more than to realize that we have been trying really hard all along but yet we can never be good enough for them.

So how do we keep ourselves distracted from all these negative people who are always trying to find our flaws or fabricate stories about our lives or the things we do?

SURROUND OURSELVES WITH THOSE FEW REAL PEOPLE WHO APPRECIATE US FOR WHO WE ARE, AND WE ARE GOOD TO GO.

THANK YOU MAK & DADDY.

THANK YOU TATEK.

THANK YOU NADYAS.

THANK YOU TO THE REST OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS.

THANK YOU CLOSE FRIENDS.

THANK YOU TO MY BLOG FOLLOWERS & ERRR..FANS?

THANK YOU ALL FOR BELIEVING IN ME AND WHAT I DO.

THANK YOU FOR NEVER DOUBTING MY CAPABILITIES. 

THANK YOU FOR KNOWING MY WORTH.

 

Yup, we actually do not need too many people to be happy. Can get too overcrowded otherwise. Then later must fight for attention. 😀

Let us remind ourselves this.

“People, not things, bring happiness.

Family, not things, bring happiness.” 

From today onwards, I am just going to take things one day at a time, because looking at the big picture will be too daunting and overwhelming. The present moment is all that we have, so enjoy it to the fullest.

I am not too sure why we even worry too much sometimes. Worrying is pretty exhausting, and it can just drain us both mentally and physically.

So I am not going to worry anymore about what others think of me because the simple realization that I am good enough the way I am is the only thing that will keep me happy.
