I was told that people didn’t like it when you spoke out of line. They didn’t like it when you voiced out something that wasn’t the popular opinion. If you had a thought that went against what was the norm, it was best to keep quiet.
For years, I kept to myself, thinking there was something wrong with how I saw the world. Why didn’t I agree with what they were saying? And why wasn’t I allowed to disagree with them?
Until one day, someone asked me what I thought. There were no wrong or right answers, they said, only my truth. I found myself struggling to find my voice. I had kept so silent all these years, I wasn’t sure where the words would come from. But once I let them out, I couldn’t stop. I forgot that I needed to keep my mouth shut. All of a sudden, the years of thoughts I had kept inside started tumbling out one by one in rapid succession.
After I was done, everyone clapped. I didn’t realize I had been crying until I felt my cheeks and they were wet with tears. My words were only happy they were finally let out. These were tears of joy.
best part of having an s/o is kissing their face a million times and there’s nothing they can do about it because they are your person
No matter what happened yesterday, today is a new day!
Carry a good mood with you and infect people around you.

Perpisahan bukan akhir dari segalanya, penantian juga bukan awal dari segalanya. Kalau harus memilih mungkin lebih baik tidak memilih, karena dengan memilih adalah cara satu - satunya yang menjadikan alasan untuk pergi.
Happy Birthday To Me 🙈💘
30th of November 💖
“Wait here,” she told me. “I will be back soon.”
That was the last thing my mother told me before she left and never came back for me 10 years ago. I always wondered what had happened to her. Did she get into an accident? Is she lost? Was she taken? I never got my answers.
Every day, I still wait by our front door, hoping she’ll come running in, apologetic that she didn’t think to call or write or let me know that she’ll be late. Every day, I wonder if she’ll show up unexpectedly. Every day for the last 10 years, I wait because she told me she will be back soon. What is later is sooner than soon?
A winter morning painting I did. Practice with the new brushes I’ve been fiddling with lately. Really happy with how this came out.

morning train ride.
And we awoke with the sun blasting our faces, even though we slept in a little before dawn. The alcohol still lingering in our veins, my cheeks blushing as you kissed my cheek once again and whispered how beautiful my eyes are to you.
There was a morning
I never knew you
but a night from which I
shall never forget you
