Someone I loved once gave me
a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand
that this, too, was a gift.


- Mary Oliver, Thirst





Someone I loved gave it to me. The darkness was actually disillusionment,
disappointment, and despair. The box was full of meanness, lies, and deceit.
The first thing I did with this box was glorify it. I gave it pride of place in
my emotional world. I let it consume my thoughts, my heart, and my
mind. Every so often, when I was feeling at my most vulnerable, I opened
it up and peered into the darkness, where I would wail and cry in despair,
pitying myself for being dealt such a dark and horrible blow.
Time passed, and I found myself opening the dark box less often.

Sometimes, I was just too busy with other things to spend the time I knew the
darkness required. Other times, I simply didn’t have the energy to
deal with all those dark emotions. Eventually, I was just bored with the
dark box and it’s perpetual whining.

Then came the day that my thoughts drifted toward the darkness, and I
realized the dark box was no longer there. For a few frenzied moments,
my mind searched for it, but I simply could not conjure it up. A deep sigh of
relief welled within me, and I knew the darkness was gone for good. In
it’s place was a very quiet sense of understanding. peace, and
forgiveness, a sensation that I had never before known, but one I wanted
very much to store up and treasure.
At one time or another, life will hand each one of us a box full of
darkness. It’s important to keep that box around for a while – but not for
too long. Buried deep inside this box is a wealth of insight, compassion, and
self-awareness. When you dig deeply enough to reach this layer,
you’ve found the real buried treasure – the true gift that’s hidden in the darkness.

" In the world beyond the tale we turn the page and close the book,
and we resume our lives. A life that is, like any other, unlike any other "


Today i saw for the first time my favorite book on screen ,
"the perks of being a wallflower" .
my eyes are hard dry from too much crying ,
my cheeks are hurting and i guess it's from too much smiling ,
i don't know how can someone make such a beautiful
characters . I love you all .
I hope someday in my life i can meet them ,
i hope i can have a friend like Charlie ,
meet people like them .
i wish i can have the luck to share my life ,
and all the moments cause , right now ,
i feel infinite .


love always ♥

i want you to tell me about every person you've ever been in love with .
tell me why you love them , then tell me why they loved you .
tell me about a day in your life you didn't thought you'd live through.
I wanna know the first time you've felt uncomfortable in your own skin .
and if that day still haunt you beneath your bones .
do you prefer to play in puddles of rain or bounce in the bellies of snow ?
and if you were to built a snowman , would you rip two branches from a tree
to built your snowman arms ? Or would you leave the snowman armless for
the sake of being harmless to the tree ? And if you would , would you notice
how much the tree weeps for you because your snowman has no arms
to hug you everytime you kiss him on the cheek ?
do you kiss your friends on the cheek ? Do you sleep beside them when
they're sad, even if it makes your loves mad ? Do you think that anger is a
sincere emotion or just the timid of a fragile heart trying to beat away it's pain ?
I want you to tell me all the ways you've been unkind . Tell me all the ways
you've been cruel .I wanna know how much of your life you spend just giving .
And if you love yourself enough to also receive sometimes . I wanna know if
you bleed sometimes through other people's wounds .

Pages turning, lights are burning

See what you could not see

It's plain as the day

The night makes you pay

For what was hidden underneath



Longing to leave
But begging to feel that

Something will make you stay

Gotta believe that this all leads

Somewhere we've never been



Tired of the guilt

Tired of being sorry

Well, haven't we suffered enough?


Songwriter : Sarah Blasko - We Won't Run



this song means to much to me , there is so many levels to understand it .

" ... it was nice to be alone, a relief to stare dejectedly out the window at the
sheeting rain and let just a few tears escape .When life offers you a dream
so far beyond any of your expectations...
... it’s not so unreasonable to grieve when it comes to an end...."

You don’t even have to introduce yourself if you don’t want to, i don’t need an a/s/l, we don’t have to do the “hey whats up” thing, you can just say “so at school yesterday this idiot said…” in my note box and I will gladly converse with you. Like seriously I will just talk to you like we’re best friends.

everything is broken ,
and that's
also
how the light gets in .

Cause darkness ,

real Darkness,

is something more than just a lack of light.

" You’re not defined by sadness,
but when someone would ask you now
if you were happy,
what would you say?
And the fact of a lacking answer
is the reason why
you need to turn around
and become a better you again "





"inevitable change" wise words came from here :pointr: [link]

So i was going to write only in my journal about this but ,
it seems that it might also be good for someone else out there (m e) .
And it's been a long time since i don't open any of my personal
thoughts in anywhere other than my journal .
This is something new to write about cause , there is this movie
called "liberal arts" . Which i saw last night , and now i keep on
replaying it on my head , and all the dialogs .
it's like seen " before the sunrise" with a new age line of thought,
although , thoughts ,good ones, they never get old .

Jesse have a huge dilema in his life ,
cause for the first time , he found someone who he really connect,
Zibby ,the connection girl who i am speaking about ,
became his pen pals talking among letters and hand-writing is
such a nice thing ( don't you think? )
i am not going to spoil the movie ,but in certain time ,
they came to a momentum in this relationship where she says to him,
that he is one of those guys how like to dislike and to be proud about
what he doesn't like . i mean . . who doesn't do that in real life ?
you can pretend all you want and hide behind your fucking masks but,
still , people are proud to say what they don't like these days .
people like to be the ones that show personality for what they don't like ,
for having strong opinions about things , and as she said ,
why can we just talk about all the things we love and just respect the rest.

See , this movie slap me cause , since yesterday ,maybe even now ,
i talk so much about the things that i don't like . And i feel connected to
people who shares the same thoughts .

Right , mostly i feel connected to people who share the same music taste ,
book taste , artist in general , those things . . .

but see , we all have this side which is unbearable to even think to live
with someone who likes for example "the twilight saga" .
(it's just and example) a fine one may i say , see !
just right now , i am pointing out that i don't like it ,
even thought , truth be told , i read the "new moon" chapter ,
and it was very well written and i felt Bella's pain , cause i've been there.
And i guess by now , a lot of you have been in as well, sort of .
But today they have this view that we have teams ,
the ones who likes it , and the ones who doesn't .
There is no place for respect , to be whatever about the thing .

So i am missing somehow my point in here , but getting back to where i was ,
Don't be proud of your dislikes , don't spend too much time hating things .
Don't turn out to be the one who is known and respected for what you don't .
Be the one respected and admired by the DO .

this will make so much sense some other day , just think about it .
To who it may concern , i am sincerely saying i have no one in my mind
right now . I was at first but then ,i saw myself in there and i was disgusted
by what i saw .

For the movie , life will tear us all apart , it's just part of the process of
learning. Get used to .
It doesn't mean in the end things will be alright .
It does not mean it will not be neither .
Things will just goes as it is , and if you can keep up ,
You may write a good ending to your story .

Cause this is all we are ,all we will be someday ,
a story for someone to tell . Or kids , friends , siblings .
bffs and whatever have you .

If you in any case have no one . there's plenty of time to
find someone to bother and to share . Don't hurry to much ,
life will catch us all eventually .

- Yoshi .

"it's my insecurities that make me watch other people in a way
they're not even aware of themselves ,
And slowly, although never on the spot,
I am becoming their signs of beauty.
I see myself in the mirror day after day
and even so it takes some time to realize
who I’ve become."


how do we get here ?

if anyone could actually feel , really feel what this is all about .
people can google and get answer but that doesn't mean that just
because they have the facts, they know (feel) how awful this is .

lately , i doubt anyone feels anything at all but themselves,
but their painful lives .
the most hard workers ,the most busiest .
people are always like this these days .

i am sure they are and only they .
life can be like this for others too but ,
why should anyone care .

well , i do .

not that this can change anything.
or solve the world hunger ,or that i can actually
stop the time of their lives , so many can get some resolved,
conclusion ,or let them breath before another things strikes .

something might change in here ,
i need this change . to make it something ,
not to blame things or just be cursing it around .
to take responsibility over , to take the charge .

to be blamed about .

i can do that .

i think i just found my answer .

and i can might just understand judas part in the bible after all .

not bad for a asian to comprehend .


to whom it may concern
.

dA , this is nothing but conceptual . i can only hope for some respect .
if you think this is a statue , if this is what you see .
this is not an artistic site at all .

we were supposed to see beyond our eyes and to feel beyond them same .
and to express over . In my culture , this is an expression form .
it might be a statue for some , but it's a lot more .
it's nothing but everything else actually.
with all do respect .

DrHouse: Are you going to base your whole life on who you got stuck in a room with?
Eve: I'm going to base this moment on whom I'm stuck in a room with. It's what life is.
It's a series of rooms and who we get stuck in those rooms with adds up to what our lives are.



btw : i highly recommend the movie "Purple Violets" . Don't you ever say i never share to you nothing .
