Is it pain? I Know that feeling all too well.
Is it sadness? It flows through my veins.
The many tears shed? I've shed a billion.
Life sucks, sometimes.
The choices I make , I'm responsible for them.
The hurt I feel, my choice .
I can choose to feel hurt or not by whatever fate deals me.
It's my happiness that matters most.
It seems no one cares;
No ping, no call, no text message.
Not even a hug smiley.
Happiness is a choice. Life is short.
Taking each day as it comes and revelling in the pleasantness of the little things.
Things that most people pay no attention to.
Things that hold much more value than it seems they do.

Procastinating and giving up, two things I am trying not to get used to nowadays. There are so many things I want to do, want to achieve, so many things I want to write, but I get so overwhelmed by the thoughts of "it's not the right time", or "you're better off not doing that now".
I really want to get stuff done anyway, because time is going and I am not getting younger :). I have been wanting to apply to the Farafina Trust Creative Writing Workshop for some years now, but I've always had excuses of schoolwork or examinations or just wrong timing. I decided recently that I can't keep waiting for the 'right time' and will just apply anyway this year, even though I'm not sure if I'll get picked, or if I'll be given time off from work. I did a google search and looked up the calibre of writers that have gotten picked for past workshops and I'm thinking will I even be able to measure up to such quality etc.
I refuse to think like this jare.
I hadn't really planned ahead for this, so for now I'm fishing out some of my old writing and doing a bit of polishing. Submission deadline is Wednesday. I'm not going to run away from that send button..lol..I'll send that email and wait for whatever may come.
Trying to be positive...
I had a beautiful weekend. What about you? Work continues tomorrow ..:(
