BEATING DARKNESS

Problems are created to be solved. You may feel desperate to find a way out. And it may seem dark, but the absence of the light is a necessary part (I quoted this from Jason Mraz's song, 93 million miles)

Like one hell of a tunnel, you've walked and walked, hoping to see lights bursting in the end of the long journey. Sometimes it seems like a never ending darkness. Sometimes you feel like you're about to give up. You can always go back to where you started and nothing will ever change. Or you can walk through the impossible.

Exhaustion, you feel like hope is fading. You just wanna close your eyes and feel nothing. But you keep on going. That's when a dot of light appears. Then you run, run like someone's chasing after you. The hope that were once fading, feels so close you could almost grab it. In a blink of eyes, you're finally out. You begin to the see the world in a different perspective. It's a beautiful world out there. I'm grateful for all the problems I had and solved, because they have made me the way i am today :)

I love everything about this, and being a bag snob I think your handbag is amazing. But what I really think pulls this whole look together is the headband. Your taste is impeccable.

I can't wait to see what's next so I will be following :) I'm pretty new to the blogging world but I would love if you could check out my blog and tell me what you think!

Thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog, by the way. I'm already 26. I took up Information Technology back in college. I'm a freelance SEO specialist and writer now. Although SEO is a part of Information Technology, I didn't learn it back in college. I knew I didn't want to be a computer programmer but I finished college anyway. I've also gone through a ton of hardships, trying to second-guess myself. It was hard and I shed a lot of tears (especially during senior year) but somehow, looking back, it all worked out. I know this might sound a bit cliche and probably difficult to carry out but go where your heart leads you. When the time is right, you'll eventually figure out how you want to live your life.I'm sure you will Febrina. <333

Yup, I do love me some floral print. Haha, I had to reply to your last comment on my post girl. So yes, my mom is actually from the Philippines, making me half Filipino! :)
I know, I don't look like it (which has actually made me sad since I love that half of my heritage).

Kathy Noto said...

Hello again dear. I feel like I should reply here so my comment won't get lost in my blog. :)

As for your question, I love my job now (as I'm currently a writer for magazine style fashion blogs, I have complete control of my time and I don't get stressed out a lot). On the other hand, I don't see myself doing this for a long time, which is why I am amassing more information on SEO so I can put up my own site (which I did already) and earn passive income from it.

My eyes were opened by the blog http://www.stevepavlina.com. I usually get life tips from this site just because I can totally identify. When i read this article http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2006/05/the-power-of-now/ I was totally inspired to change my life and make it less stressful.

Back then I was working as CSR (night shifts, annoying co-workers) and I hated it. I was away from home and from the people I love and I cried nearly every night. I quit after 4 months. My co-workers told me I was a quitter. But I knew deep in my heart that I'm not because I don't want to spend more time being unhappy. My heart just wasn't in it. And if people tell you that you shouldn't follow your heart, they should read the article of Steve Pavlina, the book The Power of Now and watch videos of Drunvalo.

It's okay to be confused because that's the way for you to come to terms with what you really love and where you should be heading. I'm not saying you should quit right now. When I was still in school, I was powerless. I have to follow my parents and I didn't want to cause trouble. But after graduating, everything just seemed to click in place. I had more freedom to choose what I want to do and decide what would make me happy.

Also, have you tried talking it out with your parents? So sorry for the long comment. But I just feel like I found a comrade in you. :)
