Trying to live life without regrets is bound to be accompanied by painful disappointments.
…but I guess I’m still holding on for that one day when I’ll be happy.
It’s been about 2 weeks back in Singapore. Met up with a couple of friends, although there are many more faces I need back in my life. Been trying to escape my lack of fitness, so far so good haha.
But I guess I’m really used to having time alone and doing what I want. Sometimes I think of running away to be alone for a bit, but I know there are times when I will wish I’m not alone.
Feel like I’m being forced to grow up. Not like it’s a bad thing. But playing captains’ ball with the kids at Frontline Youth the other day reminded me of the good old days. Life was so much easier then. Like I told T, drama back then was ‘easy drama’. Nowadays, I feel like life is trying to bend us till we break. Feel like I’m stifling myself like always. Time to look to one of my favourite movies haha:
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!
– Rocky Balboa (2006)
Learning to take the hits and breathe through the pain. C’mon.
