When Opportunity Comes Knocking

It was a rainy day today, quite surprising because of all days it had to be today. It doesn’t really rain that much where I am although I’ve always considered rain as a blessing so I took it as a positive sign that I should really pursue what I’ve planned to do for this day, been mulling over it for weeks now and finally the day has come.

So without thinking much further about it I went ahead and took a shower, prepared the things I needed to bring, dressed up, walked out of the apartment I’m staying in, and rode the metro to my destination, with only a few hours of window time left. Hate to admit that I tend to be a buzzer beater at times, there’s a certain kind of adrenaline rush in doing some things at the last minute add to that the time it took for me to fight the urge to overanalyze. Rationalizing over things can somehow delay the series of action I have to take to actually do what I consider doing and it might give me a reason to take a much closer look of the pros and mostly cons and then end up not doing anything at all. lol. So I told myself, might as well go try and get it over with rather than wonder for days on end about a missed opportunity. It’s just like the time when I decided to go skydiving, I just went ahead and did it. I jumped, screamed my lungs out and survived (all as planned). Of course a certain amount of planning is needed but overthinking, that’s another story.

So yea, I’m hoping for the best. All in God’s time. The wheels may have just started turning. 🙂 So I made this post, just to remember that I did something today. Who knows it might be ‘it’.


Anywhere with anyone

Give it your best effort just like any other day not only with the few people you prefer but also with the people that are there with you right now. No matter who is present, at any given day, give them your optimum authentic self. 

Be genuine and be kind. Not everyday is a sunny day but you can manage to have fun even during the rainy days. There is beauty in every aspect, it is the most subjective word ever made, find your kind of beautiful and take pleasure that you’re able to see and appreciate that. What positivity and demeanor you radiate will propagate and you’ll end up having a better day than you imagined, with anyone and anywhere for that matter. 

Talk a Little, Talk a Lot

What about you tell me what’s going on in your head..

Tell me your thoughts, what you love to do most in this world,

Tell me your dreams, your fears..

And the time when you laughed the most and the last time you cried till you fell asleep.

Tell me things nobody else knows, your darkest secrets and your heart’s most selfish desire

Tell me what you tell yourself when you stare back at your reflection in the mirror

Tell me how you keep it all together, tell me how you fall apart

Tell me how you face the world armed with a smile that’s uniquely only yours to give

Tell me the fondest memories of your childhood and your life’s many treasured milestones

Tell me your embarrassing moments, times you’d rather hide from underneath the sheets

Tell me about the people you care about

Tell me lessons you know to be true

Tell me your thoughts on love, faith, happiness, peace, equality… or global warming even

I would like to know

So if you could try

Just tell me

And know that you can take as long as you like.

Whenever you’re ready.
