We Are Not Your Cup Of Tea, And That's Fine

I don't speak much, I don't show emotions. It doesn't mean that I don't see, it doesn't mean that I don't feel. 

Side comments hurled at me so insensitively were casually shrugged off for I hate confrontations. But my silence doesn't mean I agree, it doesn't mean my acknowledgement. I just keep my mouth shut because I have learned that winning doesn't always mean defending yourself or making your point across. But callous words can cut too. There had been many times that these hurtful words made me weep, inside... quietly. If the goal was to break me, there, I have let the truth out. Your words were passageway to what your heart deeply contains. And that is how I know that we are not your cup of tea.

Sunday Sound Trip: In My Dreams

Some people may say I'm an old soul because of my preference in music. But then again, a lot of people, mostly those my age and older, would say that the music of the past were better and everlasting.

I am not really sure about this because in my opinion, we like the music of the past because of the memories we associate with it. Maybe someday, the younger generation would tell their children the same thing because the music they hear now is associated with good childhood memories.

However, the flavour of this week, a song older than me, is not in any way associated with my childhood. I did hear it a lot as a young girl but I was too young to have had any recall whatsoever of the happenings around me back then.

This song I would classify as classic to my taste. It's mellow, original, unique... the musical arrangement to me is very remarkable especially the bass. So smooth!

Anyway, for old souls like me, I hope you enjoy this song!

Beautiful Changes and Unexpected Blessings

During the past few months, my life has been swamped by a lot of changes and blessings. To start with, it's been almost a year now since I have finally removed myself from the negative environment I had dwelled in for a long time. It had not only affected my emotional state but also the family's overall mood in general. I had always been stressed out and exhausted that there was rarely quality time with my loved. ones. Finally freeing myself had brought wonderful consequences, like a domino effect. It paid off immediately as I received commendations at work. :)

A Bad Day Turned Around

My day started okay this morning but certain circumstances kind of rained on my parade. Pressures and frustrations that I'd rather keep mum about made me cranky and exhausted. Not even a power nap helped turn my mood around. My unlucky husband suffered a great deal from my crankiness but he didn't flinch a bit. Hint: he's partly the source of frustration hehehe.

In the afternoon, I had an appointment for ultrasound. It was a very quick one just to check baby's size and all. Before we left we were given a photo of Darla Jenn and it made all the difference. Instantly, I was happy and I and my husband we're cheerfully joking whose features were prominent. Now I am even more excited to see her!

Sunday Sound Trip: If You're Not The One

If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call?
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all?

I never know what the future brings
But I know you're here with me now
We'll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
