Two Types Of Journal

…because I rant not, neither rave of what I feel, can you be so shallow as to dream that I feel nothing? ” R.D. Blackmore

Sometimes, people thought you never had any problems because you always smile, bring good vibes and would always be cool even in heated situations. But in reality, no one was spared of any problems. For girls, depression may even be hormonal, that no matter how much you tried your best, you’d still feel stuck and felt like crying.

That is why, I have two types of journal. My happy journal and my ranting journal. Happy journal would be the blog that I maintain while the ranting blog is just a spare notebook that I can throw any time.

Why do you need to have those two types of journal?

Sometimes, you have nobody to entrust your feelings to. Your friends are busy with their lives; you just don’t want to disturb them and unfortunately, at times, you’d be left alone. When you’re faced with a problem, sometimes, all you need is to just let it out. That is the exact explanation why social media has been an avenue for the said rantings.

How many times have we read nasty exchange of ranting posts in Facebook from our friend list? How many times have they left you wondering, what the hell is happening to that friend of yours? Sometimes, when faced in an awkward scene, you’d immediately get your phone and type a simple word of frustration in twitter – I am so guilty of it too.

But, social media platforms shouldn’t be the right place to write all your temporary feelings. Yes, those problems and depression that you are feeling are just temporary. After awhile, once you’ve let it out, you’d feel better. But, since you’ve posted it somewhere, while all your friends have read it, it will become a topic of gossip in your circle of friends, in your office, school or your parents might even worry about how you are doing. Where in fact, you just let it out of you.

Have you ever felt that feeling when you just deleted what you have posted because you ain’t feeling that same tension after a few hours of posting it?

Anger can let you do a lot of stupid things. Maybe not only anger. Even frustrations and disappointments toward something or someone. 

That is what your ranting journal is all about. Sometimes, negative vibes is too much to handle. But do not let these feelings control you. You must be the one in control.

As what they said, if you are angry, count from 1 to 10, if it’s not enough, count until 100. Words posted in any social account can mean a lot to others and may then be misinterpreted by others. If your feelings are too much to handle, just write it down in your ranting journal.

On the other hand, keeping a happy journal can make a difference too. This is the journal that you can read over and over again because it contains happy memories.

Remember, writing what you feel is like taking a picture – it becomes a memory. What type of memory do you want to remember? A feeling of frustration or a Happy one? It’s your choice.

Happy or sad

Motivation and Letting Go

Motivation and Letting Go

Fight or Flight?

Eagle in Flight
I wasn’t in a good relationship, I flight.
I got scared to be in a relationship, I flight.
I was bored with my job, I flight.
I hated my surroundings, I flight.
I’m with a mediocre boss, I flight.
I wasn’t contended, I flight.
Until when will I just flight?
When should I fight?
What would you choose?
To flight all the time?
Or start to fight,
And finally feel that delight?
Something to think about. 🙂

Life is a Series of Letting Go

You see your shit everyday. You’d also smell them and you’d encounter them every time you’d feel that “urge”. Some may have that urge every day, some would also have it every other day. Your everyday shit comes in different color too, depending on what you ate – greenish, yellowish, brownish, sometimes, it even has blood on it.

I perfectly know, IT IS GROSS!!!!!!! (I can add a million exclamation point just so I can emphasize how gross it is).

However, if we look into it, shit will always be part of our lives – literally and figuratively. Shitty Boss, Shitty Life, Shitty Neighbor, Shitty Job…..

It will always be there and try to piss us off.

Only up until we accepted that universal truth will we only understand what happiness is.

Just like our physical urge to let go of our shit, our life too, is a series of letting go. Letting go of those shit that we encounter everyday – stress from work, pressure from parents, abusive relationship… We have to let go of anger, of jealousy, of greed, that ego and pride that we have inside, We have to let go of who we thought we are just to free our true selves.

We have to know how to declutter and face our shit and release it everyday.

Every time you poo and release that physical shit, isn’t relieving? That finally you have released that funny something in your stomach? Just like letting go, if you do it regularly, you’d also feel an instant relief and you’d be a better person, standing and fighting to live a life.

Everyday shit: just get used to it. Don’t let it bother you, instead, just let it go – just like how our physical body do it; by the end of the day, you’ll say, “SUCCESS!”

PS: A very gross post but, reality sucks. We just have to deal with it.
