Have been really busy since school started this semester. I'm guessing there are at least 60 emails to attend to, and I'm waking up in a couple of hours to start doing some self-revision again.
Honestly, it has been an arduous journey trying to cope with school, my blog, and my personal life over the past 2 years. - Keeping a balance in all three is what I find burdensome...
I used to breakdown a lot in the beginning; I can burst into tears abruptly for how suffocated I feel, but realised later on, that it's absolutely normal to cry, but it's important to know how to get back up on your feet and move forward.
Sometimes, I wish I could stop the world from revolving, do whatever I wish to do, and get back to exactly where I left off once I'm ready to handle all the sh*t life throws me again.
Well, as far as I'm concerned, I'm pretty sure we won't be able to do that with our current technology. Haha, maybe in a few centuries time that may be possible. Who knows right?
So, for the time being, I guess the best way to overcome failure is to be able to pick yourself up fast.
When one door closes, another opens. It will happen, but at times you might have to find that door on your own.
Giving up is no longer an option in my life. It's strenuous, but I'd always ask myself - "I've put in all my time and effort, made so many sacrifices to get to where I am now... I will never be able to turn back time and make up for all the loss. So is it worth to let go of everything now?" Successors don't back out from failure, they regard it as a motivation to work harder.
You have to fall, to be able to stand up again. Why lead a humdrum life with no problems, no pain and no satisfaction?
And failures derive from the decisions you make. There will come a time when it's crucial for you to give up on something you really want for something you really need. Vice versa. You can never have the best of both worlds.
Yet another passing thought that got me awake at odd hours.
