101 Things in 1,001 Days

By on Sunday, July 24, 2016

This post was inspired by a long-lost friend I knew from Twitter. Her name is Awen (oh, how I miss those old Twitter-ing days!), She is someone that I consider much talented in the way she expresses things through words. Beautiful, thought-provoking, and empowering at the same time. I once did this list few years back then and successfully accomplished more than some of my goals. Since then, things have changed. I have grown up. My thoughts process has evolved and new dreams are formed. I thought I would want to give it another go this time.

After much consideration and thought, here are the things I want to accomplish within these 1,001 days!

Life is To Create Yourself, Not To Find

I often visualize myself coming into a new island, a new society after going out from darkness. Half a year ago I said I want to run for the horizon, I want to run for the sunshine with my renewed mind. Infinite hope is in my heart. My love tank is full. I smile delightfully and greet every person I meet along the road, introduce myself as a newcomer. I spread happiness. I take chance and opportunity whenever they are available. I have new and fun experiences that I have never encountered before. I slowly grow as a person. I tell people my stories. They are impressed. I tell people my struggles. They are inspired.

When I say my heart breaks, my heart cries. From the stories I have been told, breast cancer grows and spreads quickly within months, or even weeks. From the very deepest of me, I encourage you, my readers, to educate yourself more about the early detection and going beyond it. Cancer could turn your life upside down, let’s prevent life-full-of-hard-struggle earlier.

A canvas that has many colors may be either amazes or confuses us. Imagine rainbow. It has seven different colors yet the combination stuns us—even more, inspires. It has an order too which comes first, the next, and the latter, creating a very beautiful color harmony. A painter painted a stunning colorful abstract painting because he knows what to do with his colors, where to put, how much to put, and when to put from one color to another color creating a harmonious colorful painting. Let’s think about if the painter does not have knowledge about color wheel, balance, and proportion. The outcome may not be as beautiful as when he has the skill. Think about the audience as well. Will they enjoy the painting, or worse, leave?
