Eye Eye Nose Brows Skin
This day is special for me.
Well, for one, nothing special really happened. And I’m happy about it.
Ok, perhaps the opening statement made you raise your brows and say “what?”, and that is exactly the reason why I want to write this article right now. We have this notion that we could only be happy upon certain few events, i.e. spending time with people we really like, buying new things, receiving achievements, etc. And I want to say, no. You can be happy just because you are.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money in order to buy that one thing you thought would bring you happiness, which in fact will not and which really you do not actually need like that new iPhone 7 or that new Microsoft Surface. You have a functionally working phone and laptop.
You don’t need achievement for acknowledgement, you never really like attention, what you really ever wanted is self-acknowledgement, self-love; knowing yourself that you are enough, that there is nothing wrong about you, and that there is absolutely nothing that could be changed to make you be anymore better than you already are. Aw
Like if I close my eyes like that, I could see the waves crushing by the shore as the deep blue sky loom above and the birds fly high and the warmth of the sun shining upon my face and as I feel its warm embrace, and I took a sip from the strawberry smoothie that I am holding on my left hand and I bob my head to the music playing on the stereo as I look at the people doing their own silly thing along the beach, playing beach volleyball with that colourful beach volleyball, and silly couples sitting together holding hands just enjoying each other’s’ presence, while I lay by the hammock keeping my own peace, and I like it just that way.
Sometimes we push ourselves too far with goals that aren’t even ours to begin with to please people we don’t really care what they think about just so we could feel as if we are happy with all these silly little things we call ‘achievement’, never really knowing that we are losing our happiness in the process.
Sometimes we forget to remember that as we are right now, we are alright, that we are okay, we are healthy, that we can eat properly and we do not have to worry about what we will be eating the next day, that we are able to go to school and enjoy education, that i am able to enjoy watching things that I like such as Game of Thrones whose latest episode is a giant cliffhanger btw. I can rest assure that my mom is alright, that my little sister is doing fine in her school, that they are fine there back at home, and I think that is good enough for me… knowing that our family is safe. In the meanwhile, while taking the time to relax and enjoy just a tini-tiny moment.
Sometimes being happy is just realizing that it is all over around us and we just need to realize that we are… I mean, just stop and smile for a minute and just enjoy the moment, no buts… no thinking about how you are self-centered and does not think about the lumads whose school are being bomb, no thinking about how we are blindly following the faulty system that have been oppressing us all blah blah,,, and all those children starving in Africa, as we speak.
I mean, c’mon…
Every once in a while you have the right to stop and give yourself that time you so deserve, to rest and relax and just enjoy the things you have in life. You deserve it. You cannot give something that you do not have, and you cannot help someone when you yourself are not even in your rightmost condition to do so. So yeah 🙂
