Experience, realize and release

Life is always taking such unexpected twists and turns. Its kind of funny to see how many things have changed now from years or even a couple of months ago. Not only do the people in your life change, but your directions change, your perspectives change and you change as an individual. Some of us turn into the people we hate, while the rest of us hate the people we turn into. It’s strange. But it happens. I’ve left behind some people who I thought would be with me for a long time, I mean they still are here, but they don’t mean much to me anymore. Our times have happened and have been some of the best, but they’re over now and its okay to move forward, In fact its better, because trying to hold on to things that are fading can ultimately lead to destruction. Experience, realize and release. I used to always believe that I would never let myself trust anyone, which is still partially true. Partially because I am careful, but I’ve found the ones I can trust. I’ve learned to open up and let myself free. I changed, people change, and life does too. It’s strange, but somehow so true.

Frenemies.

You know your friends that are with you & surely commit

The ones who have always had your back with every hit

They know your whole life from beginning to end

Yet they be the ones to leave before you reach the end

Just when you think you can trust them with your whole life

Like what a husband does with his beloved wife

They take your precious secrets and all that you’ve shared

Cus you thought they would be the ones to listen and care

But instead everything twisted, all the stories got out

The ones they had sworn would never leave their mouths

And now they’re sitting together, laughing & joking

And you’re in your bedroom corner, dying & choking

And you finally realize you believed the wrong people

They were never your friends; they’re all fake and evil

But now it’s no use, they know everything about you

They’ll expose your every move & always try to outdo..

Everything you try to accomplish in life, forgetting the past

What these enemies did to your first and to your last

But then everything is either a blessing in disguise

Or just another one of life’s lessons for the wise

For me it’s a lesson that’ll guide me through every season

Cus everything that happens in life happens for a reason

So these friends that you have, they’re only temporary

The ones forever will be there at your cemetery

Now listen warily to what I say, place close attention

This genuine advice is for your own prevention

To lastingly reduce the risk of getting deceived

Keep your mouth closed, ears open – knowledge retrieved

And remember that no one’s on your side forever

Feelings change, attitudes differ, so you should never..

Give all your trust to someone that you think you know

Because those people will surprise you once things start to grow

It’s Life ☯

Sometimes you just have to distance yourself from people. Everyone in your life has a purpose, you just need to wait and figure out exactly where they’re coming from. If they bring you happiness, stay with them.. If they bring you sorrow, let them go.. If you regret, they’ve taught you a lesson.. If you cry, they’ve made you stronger.. If you wish you’ve never met them, they’ve done their job. Now it’s on you to make wiser decisions in your future. You need these experiences to guide you to a better path.Whether they’ve brought you happiness or have made you more aware of your surroundings, always show gratitude. Be grateful of what you’ve experienced in your life as it was all just for your own benefit. Stay positive, and be patient. – Let the glass be half full –

Escapade ♥

If I could sum up one of my life goals in 3 words it would be to ‘travel the world’. As cliché as that sounds it is actually one of my biggest dreams. I love to venture and most importantly I love the journey. What good is the destination without the eager and lingering journey? We all live in our hometown where we were most likely born, grew up and got educated, and where we continue to build our future. What we fail to realize is that this is just a small piece of this huge world we live in. There is so much out there for us to experience and be a part of. The world has so much more to offer. I’ve always wanted to experience cultures that are very different from mine, and see places that I’ve never seen before. I’ve been in Canada, more specifically Ontario all my life. It is wonderful here so I’m not complaining, but I’ve seen it all. I want to see new places. Everything is so beautiful to see in pictures, but imagine actually being inside that picture and being a part of it all. Imagine how breathtaking that would be.

Some places that I would be most excited to travel are (in order): Mecca, Saudi Arabia; Dubai, UAE; Sharm el-sheikh, Egypt; Cape Town, South Africa; Casablanca, Morocco; Barcelona, Spain; Salvador, Brazil; Mumbai, India; Seoul, Korea; Venice, Italy; Agra, India; Cancun, Mexico. These are just to name a few, because I have a very long list. Everyplace I listed is very unique to each other, and their culture, society, traditions, as well as the overall environment are very different from that of my own. The pictures of these places you can hold in your hand (or save on your computer via Google images), but the actual experience is one to embrace in your heart forever. It would be life changing to travel and see all these places, and touch all the wonders of the world that you see in the pictures with your own hands. It would just be astonishing & overwhelming. One day, just one day…
