Thank You Spotify

I’ve always believed that even though music can break you to pieces at times, it mostly heals your soul.

It’s just a matter of choosing the right ones to listen to and I mean there’s no specific list for everyone or for every feeling (or at least I don’t believe there should be). What works for you may not work for me. When you listen to one, you know its effects on you! So we are free to choose – we are free to want to drown ourselves in the miserable effects of those crappy songs and free to lift ourselves and lighten up. Don’t blame someone or anything! 🙂

So here’s my current Spotify playlist favorite for the week. A totally calming instrumental acoustic pieces.

Definitely brought me to focus on all those overlapping emails at work so thinking maybe I can share to those who are not Spotify fans yet. *_*

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside | Beautiful Creatures

today i watched the movie for the second time

because i haven’t convinced my little sister to watch it and my procrastinator side just urged me to do it while eating breakfast and while cooking for tonight’s dinner too 🙂

(i’m supposed to be doing some work and other human life duties ;-P)

i have to say this movie really brought back the love for poems i had in me way back in college

nope, i do not follow or remember any poets, i just love how poems have that magical side – those lines that seem to understand what goes around INSIDE our delicate hearts [or maybe just to the very few of us 🙂 ]

the striking poem in the end was this:

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

a space

we will know it more than ever

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

and we will wait and wait in that space

what is really happening inside?

what is really happening inside?

and this hit me real real hard in the head that i googled where it came from (although the movie did imply it already i still had to search because i am hard-headed) and voila below was somewhat a full version or something and they just removed just a little part 🙂

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

a space

and even during the best moments

and the greatest times

times we will know it

we will know it more than ever

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

and we will wait and wait in that space

– Charles Bukowski (a German-born American poet, novelist and short story writer.)

and i agree so much to this that i had to blog about it, don’t i? that yes there is that space always inside our hearts that we keep waiting to be filled

so watch the movie if you haven’t yet and hopefully enjoy it the way i did

and let’s together read the the book too (because i haven’t yet hehe)

and may i attempt:  that what grows inside can grow beautifully that what goes in your mind  that what you believe in your heart it will surely surely be

and may i attempt:
that what grows inside can grow beautifully
that what goes in your mind
that what you believe in your heart
it will surely surely be

Daily Prompt: Bookworms | CAN

okay so this was really yesterday’s daily prompt (but maybe still today in some parts of the world 😉 ), but it caught my attention that i could say now better late than never, right?

but I’m far from our bookshelf when I read the daily prompt and the only nearest to that is this Yummy magazine my sister have – or more so a cook book for me [yeah i wanted it to pass as a book so forgive me 😉 ]

"The great thing about getting healthy is that you can start whenever you want..."

“The great thing about getting healthy is that you can start whenever you want…”

and so CAN is the word and Google gave me below image that perfectly answers all the questions lingering in my head these past few days – and surely to yours out there too, does it? 🙂

This is very true – no matter how things get so much messed up or all in chaos, when fear starts to creep in, there’s always that encouragement that we can find in either big or small stuffs. And the real power is when we believe we can, we really CAN. 😉

o_O i’m not a bookworm – this is just a book shot O_o

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Not quite an abstract of the world’s illumination but was inspired to take this shot when I saw these reflections in my office mirror: the blue sky starting to light up at 6 AM, the fluorescent lighting, and the glitters on my (sort of) snow globe. 😉

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

 

this pic means two surprises for me

first: i work away from home (like a 45-minute plane ride / 12-hour ferry boat-ride away) and each time i come home, there’d be something new in our home, new stuffs or maybe just new arrangements like this nativity set-up and it always amazes me how coming home uplifts my heart especially with the holidays

second: my christmases always mean taking the time to spend it with family and loved ones and offering thanks to everything that has been given – for the family that’s always loving and friendships worth keeping… yet this year, i am claiming He’d also let me have that surprise i’ve been praying and hoping these past few months
