Baggage February 2, 2010

Filed under: 1 — blinkstar @ 10:47 pm

It was a grueling day. I pulled my luggage out of the storeroom and started to pack. This time, it was not for a 3 days 2 nights trip nor was it for a sleepover at my friend’s house. Almost my whole closet is following me to begin a new lease of life at a place which was love at first sight after discovering it. The feeling grew stronger and stronger as I unearth more about this place. I guess, many people will be questioning my sanity because I’ve never set foot in that place before.

It’s a dubious decision as seen. Nevertheless, it doesn’t matter what others are going to say and I need not convince anyone out there right now that this was a rational decision. Time will do the work.

It’s so complicated. This feeling is unexplainable. Everything is jumbled up and I can’t find a proper term to define it.

Yesterday was my last day at work and my colleagues surprised me with a gift. Their sincerity and effort in presenting this gift to me meant a lot to my little soul. Honestly, that was not the best workplace in the world but these people working alongside me whom society are accustomed to labeling them as ordinary people are the ones who made me realise that life can be simple with some laughter, grumbling, silence, conversation and chocolate intertwined together. One of the best things in life is knowing the fact that your existence is being appreciated. Isn’t it?

It was a last time for many things. Signing out from the office signaled the end of this 2 months stint. I will miss my lunch hour at 11am, the times I yawn profusely and forced to shut my eyes for that few minutes, the brief strolls I took which ended up leaning by the window, the stories and laughter we shared and most of all, the amazing people over there.

I pray for nothing but happiness for you all. Hey guys, thanks for the wishes, take great care and I will definitely miss you all too. I’m moving on.

end of the 21st floor life, bL!nk$t@R.

 

Cubicle life ending soon January 22, 2010

Leaving is harder than you thought. Even a small one will make you tremble.

Only 1 week left, then I’m done with my life in the cubicle.

If I’d a choice, I might not want to leave that workplace.

Now that we have bonded so close, I dare not imagine how will my heart reacts when the time for separation arrives.

wait and see, bL!nk$t@R.

On my feet, once more~

Kindness-in-the-making January 11, 2010

Filed under: 1 — blinkstar @ 10:40 pm

My mind wants to share with the world what I’ve been going through. Maybe or maybe not, some snippets of the glitches and of course, the whole chunk of events that still make life wonderful.

After so many years of riding the roller coaster, my life has its own fair share of ups and downs. Just like yours. Like what we used to say, life is a ferris wheel. Down under now, the next minute you will be high up in the sky relishing the exhilarating moment.

I’ve learned to put others before myself when the rough waves hit me. By doing so, I learned that our wounds will heal faster and better instead of hiding in one corner licking our respective gashes. Whether it’s true or not, it dawned on me that no matter how difficult our lives  are, there is still someone out there in this world who is worse off compared to us. As for the intricacies and ironies of life, it’s unavoidable, my friend. Just face it. Real toughness is not about  acting, but doing. A stronger butterfly that shines from within, that is what we ought to be.

Believe it or not, random acts of kindness do invite miracles. I am a living testimony. Despite facing some unpleasant times, lending someone a helping hand does make me a happier person. Yes, merely that pure feeling of happiness, nothing more or special. How many of us, trapped in the midst of the hustle-bustle of life, still remember that down-to-earth yet magnificent feeling of assisting people?

Life really gets better, if and if only you believe in it. I woke up early, went for a run and got a surprising ‘good morning’ from a typical worker who is doing his chores. He can choose not to greet me, but he did. After the run, I grabbed my water, sat down on the curb and enjoy the sounds of nature with the wind hurling towards me. There is nothing more better than to replenish fluids  in such a perfect weather. Moments later, a motherly-figured lady walked towards my side, flashing that perfect smile. You bet, it came with that typical yet heart-warming ‘good morning’ too! Wow, both events really made my day! I was asking myself, how can life be better than this?

To everyone out there, life can be really great if you are willing to give more than what you have. It ain’t about seeing the greener side of the grass, but rather going back to basic-being kind towards each other, even strangers too. Start by smiling, a gift that was given by God but rarely being used. Tough time isn’t an excuse, but rather an opportunity for us to recognise our blessings as we extend our helping hands. Let us take a step back and rekindle the true essence of humanity.

Kindness rekindled, bL!nk$t@R.

 

Words~ January 6, 2010

Filed under: 1 — blinkstar @ 10:07 pm

God.

You know I love words and it’s not possible for me to fall out of it.

You know I love the fact that how those simple scribblings are able to dig out my deepest, unfathomable feelings.

To those who take time off to pen.

Muchos gracias.

It was the best gift of all and I shall hold those little characters close to my heart.
