For me, one of the most wonderful feelings I’ve felt in this world is knowing someone could take me, which includes everything about me especially my flaws. I always find pleasure in expressing mine inside and out without fear that others won’t approve. There is no greater freedom but to do the things that could make us happy, right?
By the way, this is for our 34th Weekly Quotes To Ponder moment. Just sharing my thoughts about the quote above. I would be more delighted if you’d share yours!
My jaw just dropped
A wonder before my eyes
Seasons to behold
Animals within my grasp
Caused me delight I can’t outlast.

The dead don’t desire revenge,
but the happiness of the living.
…and even if you were to die,
it won’t bring anyone else back.
Helping other people is the best way
to make up for your mistakes.
– Kenshin Himura
Hi there wonderful people! Time for our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder’ moment. As I’ve mentioned, I’m hooked with watching Anime these days. I must admit, I find it not only entertaining but soothing to the soul (well, at least with the shows that I’ve watched recently). I’d want to share my thoughts about the quote I stumbled while watching Rurouni Kenshin. It tackles about revenge and forgiveness. I know, the quote talks about killing but we can also say the same when people did us harm or hurt us. Retaliation is but normal and forgiveness is not something that we can do easily but we must accept the fact that if we are aiming for peace of mind in order to be happy, we should learn how to forgive and forget. We cannot undo things anyway, I do agree that the best way for us to make up for our sins is by helping other people.
How about you? What are your thoughts about this? I’d be delighted to read your comments. Hope everyone’s having a bright day!
Heart as cold as snow
Footprints telling where you’d go
Blinding sunlight, cool breeze
Wipes away my tears
Everywhere I am, there you’ll be
It’s been awhile since I joined a weekly TANKA challenge and I missed it so badly. I’m glad I now have a chance to catch up. You may also want to read and write, for instructions, kindly click here. Have a great one!
One month to go and year 2016 is over. That’s how fast time passed. It won’t wait for us, yet we could hardly keep up. We can only do what we can, we cannot stretch it or cheat it, all we can do is be wise in using it and make the most of what it offers. Such sentimentality, wouldn’t you agree?
This is actually in response to a blogging event called, My Monthly Memories hosted by a pretty blogger, Basant She. I would surely hate myself if I miss writing a post for this. I mean, I’ve been doing this every month, so no matter how busy I am, I must steal a few minutes of my time and partake. And besides, I’m so excited in sharing you all what transpired last month. Sharing is caring and it’s twice the fun.
I love those random memories
that makes me smile no matter what’s going on
in my life right now…
I just checked a bunch of notifications in my gmail account and surprised to know that I received many likes, comments, and follows this week. As of to date, I already have 321 followers, the last one would be Blookup Blog. I also joined another blogging even called, Monday Morning Melts hosted by bloggers Jade and Rosema. You may want to check my first entry here. You’ll put a smile on my face if you do.
I can’t thank God enough for allowing me to write and share my thoughts with others thru this blog. This is one of the things that help me keep up with the world and serve a purpose in my life. Not to mention the wonders of decluttering my mind and detoxifying my soul. It has been a nice November as I expected.
Before I end this post, I would like to share these Anime must watch in YouTube as my way of saying thank you for all your support. Hoping that everyone is happy and doing well these days.

Have you ever been away with your family? When you’re used to spend your every day life with someone, do things with that person in a regular basis or he/she’s part of your daily routine, it’s not that easy to adjust or do stuffs without him/her around anymore. It takes a lot of getting used to and sometimes you’d even ask yourself if it is real, the longing seems unbearable that at the back of your mind you’re convincing yourself that everything’s just a dream and all you need to do is wake up.
After living together for more than twelve years, my partner decided to work overseas to give us a better life and to prepare for our children’s future. It’s been about more than three years now and yet, I’m still struggling. I don’t think I can even get used to living without his physical presence especially when I’m seeing our children. Good thing he never fail to check on us on Facebook and he calls us regularly via Skype. It makes our distance closer and the longing quite bearable (still trying to convince myself here).
If we can afford to live a better life and prepare a bright future for our children without him going abroad and be away from us here in our own homeland, I’m pretty sure he’d prefer to stay beside me and raise our children together. I must say that he’s a lot more hands on with caring to our children than I am. He never fail to show how thoughtful and sweet he could be. Here’s hoping he’d bear in his mind that whenever he felt too worn out, he could always turn to us for moral support.
That’s it for our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder’ feature. May God bless us all!
