Words Are Useless

Your words are useless without actions. It’s like a powdered juice without water. You can’t drink powder.

Showing off kindness on social networking sites is totally different from doing the actual thing. People would find it hard to follow what you lead if you don’t do what you preach. Changing the world is actually changing yourself first before broadcasting it. In fact, why do you need to broadcast it anyway?

8 Things A Man Can’t Do

I wanted to write for a while now. I wanted to bring back my positive vibes in this blog yet I can’t since I have so much drama in my life recently. I’ve decided, why not some random thought rather than a reflection? Less words can make sense after all. So here is a list of 8 impossible things of which I think a man can’t do:

1. One can never be right all the time.
We make mistakes. We would all be fools if we can’t even see that.

2. One can never know everything.
There are a lot of nerds and geniuses out there who would probably say they know all the facts in their chosen field. But what about the other field? How about skills per se? Also, intelligence isn’t always enough. We need wisdom to back us up. But how do we measure wisdom after all? Would we able to know who is the wisest?

3. One can never always be happy neither does one can never be always sad.
Time. There is a time for everything and feelings are temporary. What we feel today may probably be gone tomorrow.

4. One can never will all the time neither does one can never always lose.
We can’t. Winning isn’t about winning the battle but learning is. Learning is what we gain either if we win or lose. If we keep on winning all the time, then what did we gain… just the title and a little more pride? Life isn’t a contest in the first place and hell no, the world isn’t a battlefield.

4. It is impossible for a person to had never told a single lie in his/her entire life.
Admit it. We lied even the whitest lies they can ever be. Actually, this may be famous to a scenario in which you’re feeling bad, hurt orĀ  depressed and somebody asks if you’re ok and you simply say I’M OK which you know you’re not.

5. One can never always have what he/she wants.
That’s just the way it is. But the main problem is that people always want what they don’t have. Some part of us keep being uncontented on our subconscious minds.

6. One can never find peace without forgiveness.
We can’t let go of something if we keep on holding on to it –just like anger. If we keep being mad at a person or a situation, where is our peace there? We’re always gonna be troubled by that same anger. Forgive and take the poison out of your system may it be anger, hurt, envy and all those eating the good inside you.

7. It is impossible for a person to love without respect.
You just can’t. Love comes with a package and that package has a lot of demands along with it — faith, trust, respect, and so much more than what you can think of right now.

8. One can never win if cheating is his/her process in achieving so.
Cheating is cheating. You can copy someone’s work but in the end, we all know that you may gain all the credit but you gained nothing else. You may possibly know the answer but you don’t know HOW’s and WHY’s behind it.

Inspirations That I Don’t Want To Be

If someone would ask me to name my  inspirations, I can’t. I don’t know why but I have no one. I don’t have a role model to look up to. Is that weird? Well, mmm. When it comes to musicians, I can name a few but it would still be not up to the point that I like everything about them and everything they do. It would be just limited to their music, compositions and how they play or sing. Other than that, none. When it comes to values, none.

You know what I do? I actually have a list (well not really written) of people that I don’t want to be. It would really sound mean but I do have them. I keep in my mind the attidudes, mistakes and decisions that I don’t ever wanna make.   If I know someone who is so selfish and takes so much pride, I’d rather be selfless and be humble. If that someone can’t even clean a room, I would prolly be too well to be organized.

I don’t want to be who they are because I can. I am not saying that their full of sh** and they don’t do any good. It’s just that I can focus more on their mistakes and what it has done to them and try not to make the same ones because I know that I can do better if I wanted to.

It’s like in my teaching career, being a guitar/violin/ukulele/drums teacher, I want to be a role model to all my class. I would never ever say bad words in front (never did to anyone) of them because I don’t want them to have a bad mouth. I know someone who speaks and I don’t to be like him especially when in class.

I want to be if not the best, to be good enough for my students. I want them learn everything I know. I’d like to teach them the reason behind everything in theories. I’d like to teach them how it’s properly done. I’d like to teach them what they want to learn. Most of my students enrolled for the lesson because they want to… I want to be the reason why they want to keep playing, learning and love music. I want to answer every question they have in mind. I’d like to make connections with them. I want to be sensitive enough to their needs. I would love to give my full attention. I want them to not be fully dependent on me. I want them to grow. I want them to treat every kind of music, from classical to pop to rnb to rock, equally and with respect.

I want all those things because I never had that kind of teacher in music. When I first had my guitar lesson, I learned nothing for 24 sessions but 2 songs. I don’t know how to play anything else. When I got to conservatory, almost everyone is all about discipline and less fun. They tend to insult pop music and treat classical genre a god. I don’t know but I think I stopped loving music when I got there. It was more like I was inside a box with them saying DO THIS NOT THAT.

I guess when I feel frustrated about something or someone, I realize that I never want to be that frustration or so I can say I will stop the chain of that negative vibe and convert it to a positive one. If I’ve experienced a bad learning environment, I’ll make a better one. I love my students and they keep me going. I got lots of frustrations to people but that is my inspiration. I try to be the best that I can be. I try not to give away same bad experiences I had.

No Two Voices Are The Same

It’s funny how we can never imagine how God actually created each and everyone of us so unique from each other. From our faces to the lines on our palm to the shape of our toes. Even twins and triplets are not exactly alike. But tonight, I noticed that even our voices, speaking or singing, are as equally unique.

I was dead tired when I got home from a whole day of teaching classes. I don’t want to do anything but to lie on my bed and listen to music. Turned on my playlist into shuffle and heard Hayley Williams’ (vocalist of Paramore) voice singing Zedd’s song. I realized that her voice is so distinct that I can’t compare her to any other singers.

After realizing that, made me think that no two voices are the same which is actually awesome. Can you name one artist that sounds exactly the same as another one? I bet none. That’s really cool. Even if we try to imitate them in karaokes… No way in hell that we would sound the same.

I know that this random thought is so light and simple but yeah, it made me smile and I’d love to share this to you guys. Lol.

A Morning Prayer

“You’re a familiar place, a steady state of mind, in silence. Lead me down to the unspoken, breathless and with my heart broken. See through me in the absence of you see. Hide what isn’t me in the presence of your ability. Amen.”

I thought I was writing a poem or a song but then I ended up doing a prayer. It seems like He’s my greatest inspiration of all. I have never felt loved the way he did. I have never felt that feeling of being special and important than I know in my heart that even I am a little of value, He needs me more than I (being only human) can ever need Him.

I don’t know what my purpose in life is but I love living it just because somebody loves me. And I can’t ever help myself to feel that feeling being found and can never ever be lost again. I feel safe and secure as if I can never be hurt and if I do, I wouldn’t be left alone. I would have arms around me and I could lie next to Him feeling better no matter what. I don’t (as in never would) want to hurt anybody because somebody would never ever want to quit on me.

The way He believes in my heart, I can’t ever explain but my heart is pure and I can never want to resist good because He is good. Good enough for me to be good for somebody too.

When Life Was Simpler, I Knew A Little.

When life was simpler, I knew a little.

Just a random thought before I go to sleep. I realized that sometimes we don’t need to settle for simpler things. We don’t get to choose our problems but if we do, why stick with simple things? Where would it get you?

It’s like learning how to speak but instead you only choose to learn ABC’S, short words and form short phrases just enough to make sense. But is it enough to settle for that? What if you feel something and you can’t express a bit of it because your limited?

Everything we have is what we can handle. Never ever doubt what you can and never ever limit yourself to what you think you only can.

How can you live?

How can you live without living at all?

Is there a guide on what is he proper way of living a life? Because sometimes, I feel like when people use the term YOLO (You Only Live Once), they take advantage of life. It’s a random question and I haven’t figured an answer or other thoughts at all. Mmmm.
