Project for 2012: Happiness!

The last day of 2011.... sad to say, but I kinda liked 2011. It's the year I started this blog and I so happy that I'm still writing continiously 'till the end of year, and that gives me hope that I will have more fun and exiciting adventures in 2012!

My goal for 2012 will be more about happiness. I started to read this book about happiness. It's someone's personal project that I think is very brilliant. Well, I write more about the happiness project after I finished reading the book. This is my last post for 2011! So goodbye year 2011, it's been a great year and see you all in 2012!

I love this song so much and just then I saw the video, it's somehow awesome! It's kinda seeing my younger life. For me, growing up was kinda though, and i always feel that no one understand me and I don't fit in anywhere. I still don't know why it was a bigger deal back than. Maybe that's what most teen feel. Then, if you survived and you go out of your parents house and life on your own, you'll face more difficult situations that "fitting in" is not an issue anymore. For me, facing the uncertainty and having too much choices (a.k.a. fredom) are my issues for know. There are no guide line anymore, but if there is, I wouldn't want to follow it anyway.

The funny part is, I still have my childhood Teddy Bear like the girl in the video and the owl wall sticker in her daughter's room. I hope I'll have that happy ending too.

Finally! I start to watch Friends all episode from today! It's the 20th December 2011. It's gonna be a long journey of 10 seasons. So far, I've watched 5 episodes. It is still so funny! I love Friends so much. What I hate while watching this is that I missed my friends so much. Being working in different places and being married and all of that stuff can make someone so far away from their friends. I still have a good time chatting with some of my friends, but it's not like those good 'ol days. Where are you guys??? I miss you all!

I've just watched the first part of Julia Robert's Eat, Pray, Love (Italy part). It's not my first time watching it, yet it still give me the same effect. Why is it like that? Haven't I change? Maybe there's still the same issue that going on and on in my head, something that I don't know how to let it out.

In that part of the movie, Liz talks about the ruins of the city. Who ever build it wouldn't have imaged that it will only be ruins. It was a beautiful architecture before the war came. And did life disappeared? No, people build a new life around that ruin and life goes on. And that ruins is still there as a reminder of the heartbreaks and it is also it's a symbol of a transformation. My question is, am I ready for that transformation? Are you?

Here's the complete quote from Elizabeth Gilbert, the author:
“A friend took me to the most amazing place the other day. It’s called the Augusteum. Octavian Augustus built it to house his remains. When the barbarians came they trashed it a long with everything else. The great Augustus, Rome’s first true great emperor. How could he have imagined that Rome, the whole world as far as he was concerned, would be in ruins. It’s one of the quietest, loneliest places in Rome. The city has grown up around it over the centuries. It feels like a precious wound, a heartbreak you won’t let go of because it hurts too good. We all want things to stay the same. Settle for living in misery because we’re afraid of change, of things crumbling to ruins. Then I looked at around to this place, at the chaos it has endured – the way it has been adapted, burned, pillaged and found a way to build itself back up again. And I was reassured, maybe my life hasn’t been so chaotic, it’s just the world that is, and the real trap is getting attached to any of it. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.”
Don't you think is true? I do...


I've just read an interesting post from Paulo Coelho's blog: give love and seek no reward. That is so true! When I was younger and naive, I thought that love is about give and take. But it just doesn't worked that way. You'll be disappointed if you waited for the other person to give you back when they don't even feel they had take something from you. If you waited, that means you are seeking for a reward. That includes simple things like answering your text message, saying thanks for the little things you do, etc, those are only rewards. What I've learnt for this couple of years is that love is really just about giving. You just give and you're genuinely happy. Is just simple like that! So what's love to you?

Quote of the month

I guess this is my last "Quote of the month" for year 2011. I started this year with so much hope and agenda, the one thing I'm proud of is that I kept my commitment on making at least one post every week. There have been moments where I was so busy or go bored or got sick or even had a very bad Internet connection, but I got through every single of it, and I'm proud of myself! I've read somewhere that we need to celebrate the good things in life before it will past us just like that, but I'm waiting just two more weeks to celebrate that. Why am I so proud while I know others have made much much more better blog than I do? Well, first, it because this is the first time I took a long term task and I don't quit! I've had so much issues in quitting long term things. Second, because I found so much wonderful things to share with you and I hope I could share more! And last, I kept some of my thoughts recorded! What a relief! Hahaha...

Winter Song

(click on the picture for a larger version)

Some phrase from a beautiful song called Caledonia... While listening to that song (sang by Ronan Keating), I kinda felt it fits my mood. I guess I'm a bit more melancholic lately... This year is almost over, just days to go... I was never a fan of endings. I always want to make the most of the moment before something really ends. I really hoped that next year everything will be great. I guess it's time to recap what we've done this year, make notes on lesson learned, and make plans for life a year ahead. Well, every ending have a new beginning =) I hope your's will be wonderful!
Here's a wallpaper I made just for you...
