The Fabulous Stroll

The Fabulous Stroll

I am here- a reason enough to be happy. And I am happy in the shoes I am wearing. I love where I am. I love the people around me. I embrace my body. I love myself. It is who I am, and it and I am fabulous exactly as I am. I love something- anything, anyone. Reality is good, tumultuous, exciting , thrilling and exasperating. In all its intensity, life is what you make it.

In the real world, all we’re really guaranteed to have is right here, right now. So why not learn to love our life in this instant, instead of thinking about the future all the time.

*Carpe Diem*

To pee, or not to pee: that's not the question

Go somewhere with natural beauty- even a quiet garden will do. Give yourself a moment to be in touch with nature, like you were as a child. Take your problems for a walk, a long one. Things seem better after a good walk. Take a pause. Pose for the camera. Add fun to your strolls. See my picture? What you think of me is none of my business. Just laugh at it :-), hahaha!

So much going on, so little time to write. This time of year is tough to get things done.

The past few weeks have been so extreme and exhausting: Having accomplished my target at work driven by mundaneness, busting gym and then being able to attend a university orientation, and being inspired by the passionate sharers and speakers, made me humbly alive again. I could feel the energy of students in the hall. That’s where I get my vigor- attentive, listening crowd.

This week however, I’m taking a double R&R. Of Army, R&R stands for Rest and Relaxation. I’m a soldier of life (not in uniform) who needs R&R- so here I am, having a good time resting and relaxing from stressing list of appointments and commitments, afterwhich, I’ll get back on the move when I feel my fuel has levelled up. And even though I managed to spank myself just to pull up a seat right now, still, part of me is craving a little action that’s why I’m getting a grip on the other R&R- Responsibility and Realization. I’ve been denying the immediacy of my responsibility to realize my dismissed and coveted goals. I guess it’s time to dig a hole and put my excuses in it. Lame excuses- I have a lot. And I’ve been constantly using them to keep my aims on hold. Rationalizing, is it because it takes an overwhelming amount of effort to achieve a race’s end? Not as it should be. Looking back, what the heck was I thinking then? I’ve been goofing off.

So, I’m taking a double R&R (Rest and Relaxation) to kick back then, bounce back to take in hand my personal Responsibility & make my missions into Realization. Oh, it just made me smile 🙂 that I’ve taken a small step and I hope, and I hope and I hope that I become hard as nails that no matter how tough the hammers of life are, I stay calm, cool, focused and collected.

That, my friends, is the sermon for the day, not for you, but for me.

🙂

Get a life-get a grip
Get away somewhere, take a trip
Take a break-take control
Take advice from someone you know

CHORUS:
Come on over-come on in
Pull up a seat-take a load off your feet
Come on over-come on in
You can unwind-take a load off your mind

Make a wish-make a move
Make up your mind-you can choose
When you’re up-when you’re down
When you need a laugh come around

Repeat CHORUS

Oh, oh, oh…

Be a winner-be a star
Be happy to be who you are
Gotta be yourself-gotta make a plan
Gotta go for it while you can

Repeat CHORUS

Get a life-get a grip
Get away somewhere, take a trip
Take a break-take control
Take advice from someone you know

Repeat CHORUS

Oh, oh, oh…

Every time I get messages from folks and friends, I am always asked-
“How do you get out of a rut?” You seem like a happy-go-lucky person, who never cares about problems.” Who on earth doesn’t have any problems? Only the dead, I guess.

To answer the question, I’m living a calm but unusually fast paced life. And it seems to me that I’m always chasing after the golden time. It’s exhausting but I’m lovin’ it (like the way I love McDonalds ;-)).

Whenever I feel the calmness is bothering me, ironically speaking, I get out and mix things up! Of course some, if not everybody, wants to have a delightfully calm lifestyle, but it turns out that’s not exactly what I wanted, after all. A growing part of me is always longing for some adventure, some conflict, some drama (but not the cry-baby drama)… something I can really sink my teeth into. Don’t get me wrong, it sounds weird but I’m sober. It’s just that, for me, a calm life is dangerously close to a boring life. So, what do I normally do to make my existence more interesting? I mix my regular routine up and get together with some fresh faces by talking to strangers, let’s say on the train, library, malls or anywhere I can find somebody to bug, (chuckles). What’s more, to increase chances for excitement, I change my surroundings by simply going to a place I’ve never been to; may it be trekking cities by train until I get lost. Planning a travel, taking a lift on the elevator from the basement to the rooftop or even a trip to the park or forest could yield some fun. There’s a lot to say on behalf of living a very structured and ordered life, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t go a little “haywire” every once in awhile.

Learn how to get out of a rut and enjoy life! There are several different methods you can employ to achieve gettin out of a rut.
