Note: Tadaaaah! I’m back, loves! I’m sorry for suddenly being MIA on you, guys. A lot of things has been preoccupying my start of the year including the reconstruction of the blog. What do you think of the new look? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Sometimes, being bare is the answer. This doesn’t mean being naked and running around the streets with no clothes though. It’s about the other definition of “bare” – plain, simple, basic, pure.
This 2017, just like what you can interpret in this look, I would like to keep my life bare. I’m stripping myself of all the toxicity, negativity, stress, entanglements, loneliness, and anxiety that may come with everything that I may face this year. I understand, though. I understand the fact that these can never be completely removed from life. They are inevitable. They are normal.
But this year, I am going to at least try. That’s what’s important in the first place, right? Trying? Risking? Being brave even when uncertainty is standing just right in front of you? Going forward even when the path is just covered in total darkness?
So many people are so afraid of simplicity. So many couldn’t imagine their lives without the luxury, grandeur, fame, and fortune. So many couldn’t be happy just by simply realizing that they are alive, that they are breathing, that they are stepping on the grounds where people, whose lives were already gone, once walked through.
This 2017, I will be bare. I will pour out my heart and my soul to everything I do. Mediocrity is not allowed. I will remove the fear of being rejected or ignored and tell people everything I want to tell them. I will express my love and care for the people who may or may not be special to me. Just the fact that they have come to my life, even if they made it better or worse, owes my gratefulness simply because they have been a part of my life, a part of me. No more holding back. Enough of standing just on the edge of the cliff. This 2017, I will let myself fall from it. And I will soar. I will fly and reach the heights I never thought I could. Stop with merely dreaming and start doing.
I will always remember what Psalm 119:19 states:
I am here on earth for just a little while.
Live, my love. Live. Let your life be as beautiful and meaningful as it is.
