0 'Cause we're so different; you and I...

Tonight I happen to have that syndrome where you're as tired as a mule...but you just can't happen to find the sleep.

Maybe it's my mind...maybe it's too busy with earthly matters that it can't seem to slow down enough in order for me to find dreamland.

Amazingly enough, I've just updated my facebook status with a simple whiff of just one of these topics that's been on my mind... and in just a couple of minutes ppl started reacting.

I just needed to blurt it out, and still it seems as thou just a facebook stat was not enough...it still nibbles inside ...hence, the blogpost.
Thing is, that I personally find it pretty mind disturbing when ppl claim to be different, assume that being different is a medal of honor, but still can't show me they ARE indeed as good as they claim to be...
They can't prove that the advertisement they're doing isn't simply fake propaganda... Scam! BIG FAIL...

They parade everywhere with the name tag and dare shout it from mountain tops.."I-am-DIFFERENT!!" Some dare even slam you with their "Radically Different" board... Insisting to zap you to change...
But my point is, there's NOTHING special about being different. Thanks to the mighty creator...we're all different in our own special ways!
You and I are different, the neighbor's different, the woman in Islam is, and the child in Uganda and so's the young men in Japan and the identical twin born in Russia.
Amaze me instead, using that difference to be a BETTER person. Prove, with your daily actions, that indeed, you're better than I.
And no, I'm not talking about that which you do when the crowd's watching. Or when there's someone around to tell you how wonderful you did. But the issue here is rather that which you do when the lights go off and there's no one to applaud your "show". THAT'S the real difference!

I think being different is totally ok...totally acceptable. As long as you don't preach that your "being different" is better than mine, but live a totally opposite story...
My problem's those people who suddenly think oh-so-much and oh-so-many about being "different" while an out-stander can see no light whatsoever shining through. ZERO (positive) EFFECTS registered with your attitude... And THAT's a MISS! By posting this I claim in no way to be perfect. Not even do I claim that I'm THE DIFFERENCE in no way at all.
But this night I simply stopped to think... And I shared a piece of my mind on this blog...

My dear blog-reader...be ye different! Be ye as different as you can be. As a matter of fact, be ye THE difference if that's what you aspire... But be so in the crowds as well as behind closed doors. With all people equally...no matter what! When they're watching you, and when they're not.
If you know you can't be; drop your facade and get rid of the gag-provoking masquerade.
Quit being such a hypocrite. 'Cuz you're fooling no one but yourself. Besides, you're wasting time and make people who discover your schemes despise you profoundly...

0 When the minor takes control...

This morning I read some very wise words. And I personally took them as an advice to self, on the quest to building up a smarter and stronger character.
It said;
“Try to remember to think long-term and don’t let minor annoyances distract you from more important issues”

Thinking long-term... I guess sometimes we all need to be reminded to do this, don’t we?
 We’re all human, and sometimes we fret so much about the small insignificant stuff that we forget to focus on the bigger pictures of life. And so do I sometimes, even if I might not always show.
Beautiful things, valuable lessons and awe filling moments can easily pass us by...’cause we’ve got our attention fixed on the wrong stuff.
These days I’ve had some of those minor annoyances. The problem is not exactly having them. The problem is letting them linger in your mind enough to worry you, push you down and become a major cancer ball that takes away your peace of mind, your joy of living, your love to life and in times, even your health.
It is sometimes inevitable, for these small drops that fill our buckets are right there to deal with at each step of our ways. You can actually do nothing to avoid them. They are sometimes in our families, in our work environment, at school... You name it!
The art is to find a way to not let them distract us from the important issues in our lives. Not to let them push us down.
I believe in order for something to distract us, it simply needs to get a good grip of our attention. It should in some way or another arrest our mind, rationality and emotions and obstructs clear thinking.

For a minor annoyance to distract us from an important issue it needs first to get powerful enough to push down whatever else occupies your thoughts at the moment.
And the mind and emotions are a pro at doing that if we’d only let them have their way. All of a sudden you FEEL as thou the person greeted you in a strange way, you THINK they must be right you can’t do certain things, you BELIEVE that you’re bound to become no more than this heap of problems and then suddenly you are CONVINCED that the world might end for you because of this.

It is, truly a challenge in life...for each one of us, to start believing we are extraordinary creatures; big enough to tackle whatever circumstance that crosses our path. Definitely bigger than any small and insignificant annoyance.
And  that we’re meant for bigger things in life...meant to attend important issues. Meant for BIGGER, BETTER and more CHALLENGING pictures.
And at the moment we realize this, the minor annoyances start appearing so small, so unimportant, sooo diminutive they diminish from being as important as to distract us from the more important stuff in live.

So, blog has been in a state of weird comma for the past month. I owe it to myself thou. Vacation, busy schedules, procrastination... The whole package!

I tell you, there's been millions of blog-worthy topics...hope I get the time to share it all bit by bit these coming days. If not, I'll mention them someday. You can be pretty sure of that...I've got that kind of a random mind. :p (I think my friends can tell you)

Well, vacation...??? (Sy puts a wide grin)
Vacation was simply "aaaaaahmazin'" !!! It was relaxing, enjoyable, unforgettable 'n plain cool. I enjoyed the views, the stay, the people, the food, the warmth, the cocktails, the free-vacational spirit...I've enjoyed it all! Mind, heart, body and spirit came back satisfied.
Celebrated my 27th b-day there and it was one of the very best b-days EVER.
Pointing out every single second of my two weeks vacation would be waaaaaaayy too much. So I spare you the (not so juicy) details. LoL
One thing's certain, the Dominican Republic knows how to make me gain weight each and every time I visit. But regardless of THAT bogus point...I might be planning a visit soon again. Maybe....just maybe!
But,sadly enough I've been back to reality for two weeks now. And some parts of reality suck!

One thing I've been pondering about...
It's amazing how one single action can sometimes change our whole perception of someone...
Panic not, maybe my perception of you moved up, instead of down! But some people...argh anyways, I'll figure my way out!

Turning the page , next week I'm starting my Master degree... LAW! I have to admit thou; with mixed feelings. Some part of me really wants this new adventure, new knowledge, new people, new achievement.
But then the other part's so unsure if THIS is what I really want... Packed schedules, study study study, stress, less blogging time and minus zero social life (compared to my already antisocial state).
(Sigh)....THOUGH ONE!!!

On yet another note, as you could deduct from the vacation paragraph...I gained weight on my vacay.
Six whole depressing kilos came back home to momma!!! Told everyone the word "diet" wasn't known where I went... I mean, are you crazy?? Dieting on an all inclusive vacay's absolutely insane! A vacay is a vacay... So I left whatever belongs home right here...at home!
But as soon as I came back I picked it back up, and as for last tuesday when I weighed in, I've lost four of the six. So, "yeay" for still winning the battle against weight gain! This tuesday's weigh in again, we'll see what victory brings us this time!

Anyways dudes and dudettes...I need to go catch a snooze now really... Tomorrow (later on) promises to be a long day!
Every time I can I'll be catching up on the blogging. And if there is a particular topic you want to see me blog about just lemme know...
We'll see what I can do about that. :p
Signing out and laying down the duties for the night...
Yours always,
