It’s already September 6th of 2016, cant remember when was the last time I wrote. Used to really enjoy writing stuffs if not daily, maybe weekly. But now, I guess its been half year? Maybe.
There is something about writing stuffs that happen in our lives I found is somehow relieving. I guess it is something profound. We get to tell the world whats inside, we get to express what we feel inside despite not being able to say it out loud. And I guess it’s kind of a very good therapy for most of people, at least I feel that way. That this writing, does help. A lot. Really.
I do keep a number of diaries. I like to collect and keep small things from the day that I feel maybe precious? Things that I want to remember when I look back on all the diaries, or significant days in my life or perhaps just a day of nothing in my life. Things like train tickets, stickers, photos, receipts and even leaves(?) do fill the pages in my diaries.
Now when I look back on those diaries, I get to immerse myself back into the bittersweet moments. I get to reflect back in days that I spent. Simple questions like ‘why did I do that?’, ‘was I that silly?’, ‘did this really happened?’ etc. do pop up in my head. Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry.
One really significant thing about writing is that it helps you to reflect. On every little things. It helps you to wanting to make things right in the future, it helps you to grow as a person. You would not want to repeat the same mistakes that you did in the past. And maybe even making you to appreciate the presents better than you did in the past?
Have you heard of ‘Take advantage of 5 before 5’? If you have, good on ya! If you haven’t, well its my pleasure to introduce to you and maybe we could all learn a thing or two?
“Take advantage of your youth before your old age, your health before you fall sick, your richness before poverty, your free time before you become busy, and your life before your death.”
So yeah, if you take some time to ponder upon these 5 things, take a deep thought of them, you will appreciate the smallest things in your life even more. You will fix your days, you will start your days with quality and positivity. You will live your life happily and healthily. And eventually you will make sure that every breath you take, is definitely worth of living!
