Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 64’s Topic: Joy of living.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Your life is as wonderful as you choose to view it as, and I have certainly accepted this notion over the years.

Work hard for stability, and then squeeze in some things that make you happy. This is life in action. It’s not supposed to be extremes of happiness or sadness, but it’s more of a mix of both constantly alternating.

Obviously, you should focus on the former rather than the latter. It’s better to be happy than sad, but sometimes life throws you stuff to test your fortitude.

Day 57’s Topic: Appeasing your “other” side.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
There are days where I simply feel like a conflicted person, at least when it comes to satisfying all my goals and ambitions. I want to look for the silver lining when things get bleak. I want to find reasons to be happy in life.

There are lots of elements to want, but I don’t know if I can get all of them appeased. My “other” side is very demanding, as you can see.

Then again, don’t we all have our own other side who is always hounding each and every single one of us, respectively?

Is it not uncommon?

A few years back, I really wanted to land my dream job in journalism. Because I wanted it so badly, the horrible depression took over. And because the depression took over, I became knocked out of commission for a long while.

I do believe it was because I wanted to appease that certain side to me. Rightfully so, that other me just wanted big things.

A swell job you could go around to brag to others.

The satisfaction of knowing my ultimate goal in college, of being a journalist, was going to come to reality.

And so on. And so on.

Of course, the short version of the story is … it didn’t happen like that at all. Almost tragic in itself, everything just came crashing down. The whole house of cards scattered everywhere, and I was left to play 52 Pickup.

Not fun at all, I have to say. But that’s how that series of events turned out.

What can I say? The other me demands a lot. That’s a fact.

Everyday NhanSense – Day 47

Day 47’s Topic: Childhood dreams.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
When you’re a kid, you don’t really know what you want when you’re older, do you?

I know I sure as heck didn’t know. I thought I did.

I was going to make video games and work for Nintendo. I wrote a letter to the company’s American branch as a class assignment in sixth grade. I was so sure that was the path I was going to take in life. Guess what? I ended up not going down that path. I am not going to say things didn’t pan out, but it was more that you come across different forks in the road and you have to make a choice.

You have no clue what each destination will ultimately take you, but I guess this is the challenge about living out your life.

Things certainly are easier when you are a kid in this regard. Ignorance is bliss, after all. You think the whole world is your oyster, and we are fed with the notion that we can be anything if we all try to be.

The reality is, however, we cannot all have certain dreams come true for whatever reason.

For instance, due to my height being something less than six feet tall and lack of coordination or ball skills, there was no way I would end up playing in the NBA as a basketball star. Not gonna happen.

Nope.

No way, Jose.

It would be impossible.

But you know what? I don’t have to be an NBA star. It’s not what I want to do, anyway.

Abide by the Vibe: Ongoing Story

————————————————————————————————————–
Abide by the Vibe: Your everyday “vibe” is created on your own terms. Every action and thought will affect this “vibe” constantly. Will you choose to be fueled by a happy “vibe” or will you destroy yourself with a negative one?
————————————————————————————————————–

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

I like to believe that everything happens for a reason in life. Everyone has their respective story they are constantly telling.

Are some destined for happiness? Despair? Triumph? Failure? Or perhaps something completely unexpected?

To find out one’s inevitable ending, one must simply live life to see how the tale pans out.

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”
