hiatus

I am going on hiatus. Camping this til Sunday. Will return with pictures once i get home. Til then, this is what I leave you with…

Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each of us is special.
Do not set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.

Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life for without them, life is meaningless.
Do not let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past nor for the future.

By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.
Do not give up when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Do not shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love is too hold it too tightly;

In addition, the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without hope;
To be without hope is to be without purpose.

Do not run through life so fast that you forget
Not only where you have been, but also where you are going.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored
Each and every step of the way

Enjoy your weekend. Much love.

XOXO

ancient Post from an ancient Blog

Came across this as I was doing a post-mortem on one of my previous blogs. Just felt like posting it up. Seemed a little relevant to the realization that I’ve come into recently.

Ever had someone that’s meant the world to you ? someone you’d give up all you had, do anything you could do, just to see the happiness in his or her face, even if it was for a second ? That one person u’d practically give up ur life for without hesitation ?.. the very same person u’d love unconditionally, knowing in d back of ur mind, that all ur efforts would come off unpaid…

Then when it all goes bad, you realise that sacrificing everything for that person, has killed the very person you are… that you’ve forgotten those silly little things that once used to keep you contented before things got complicated…

And in that very instant, you start to blame yourself, for not being good enough, for not being able to do the right things, and for failing miserably, for no matter how hard you tried n tried, you could never get that one special person to love you, the way you loved him or her…

As the realisation overwhelms you, you’re flooded with memories of the past, and pressed down by the pain of what you have lost…you spend countless night staring at the ceiling or with ur face in the pillow, crying…

At that point, you realise, you cant take it anymore…that there is no use in simply blaming yourself, coz no matter how much harder you’d have tried, or how much more you’d have tolerated, some things just aren’t meant to be….then you come to understand, that that never ending search for happiness, is in fact, “never ending”…and then you start to let go…

Ever wondered, how much truth there was to d phrase “it’s better to have loved and lost, then to have never loved at all”…?? Who knows what the answer to that would be. Who could predict which path would be a better one?

I guess it’s all just part of life…we’re meant to make mistakes, to get hurt, to feel a little pain at the least, before we can really begin to enjoy the gifts we have in life…

It is a fact, that life, keeps handing us interesting and new obstacles…it is up to us, to take what good we can out of it, and continue on this journey without worrying too much… after all, no matter what we go through in life, the only promise that life has made us, is that someday, life itself will come to an end…

who want to go on a Date?

Charissa Adeline wants to go on a date. A real date. Where the guy….

– shows up at her doorstep, flowers in hand …
– picks her up with a cute little car …
– takes her out to a romantic dinner then pays for it …
– takes her on a stroll so that they can talk and get to know each other …
– walks with her hand in hand
escorts her back to her doorstep …
– and gives her a peck on the lips …
– waits for her to go back in …
– then goes back to the car and drives off …
– and then calls her later that night …
– to tell her what a great time he had …
– and how much he already misses her …
– then calls back a few days later to ask her out again…

A date where she doesn’t have to pay for anything, or worry about transport, or curfews, or being seen by the wrong people. No making out, no sex, no attempts at trying to get into her pants. Just a simple.sweet.date. Beginning to end.

If only those kind of guys weren’t close to extinction.
If only those rare few would actually ask her out.

this weekend and the next

*This weekend, going camping. Our little getaway.

BBQ under the open sky
Swimming in the cool water
Sun tanning under the awesome sun
Bumming by the beach

Who could ask for more? It’s been ages since I’ve gone camping. The actual thing, sleeping in tents, far off from any sign of civilization. Just us and them. I think it’s actually been years since I’ve really done that. Normally all we do is get a hotel room and drop by the beach for a while

*Next weekend, KL and Genting.

Chilling in the mall
Club hopping, without them guys
Genting and all its rides
Summer splash
Shopping and more shopping

Bonding time I suppose? (: I cant imagine doing all this with anyone else. In some way, its just meant to be, isn’t it? Me and him, him and her. Us and them. One word, perfection. If only everything were as simple as the picture

Well, whatever it is that happens, at least I’ve got this weekend and the next to look forward to. I’m all smiles right now. Finally.

pyaar hogeya…

Escape

Charissa Adeline NEEDS to ESCAPE

I dont know what it is anymore that is stressing me out, or pulling me down. But more often than not, I find myself feeling sad, disappointed or more accurately, miserable. Yup, as overly dramatic as that sounds, sometimes I really do feel miserable.

I used to enjoy everything I did, everyday that passed. I used to be happy and carefree. I used to look forward to chilling with friends, to a girls night out clubbing, to dancing my ass off late into the night without having to care about anything else in the world. I dont anymore.

I wish I could wake up in the morning, not having to worry about today, not having to think about tomorrow. But I cant do that anymore. I’m worried all the time. About college, about work, about friends, about life. I’ll be 20 in 4 months, I cant go on making mistakes. As much as I want to remain a child, I have to face the facts, I havent the luxury of that choice.

I want to snap out of this. I want to be alright. I WANT TO BE ME AGAIN.
