Good Vibes # 1: Feel Good Quotes
We’re being surrounded by negativity. We are perpetually being bombarded by bad news from every form of media imaginable. It’s like having 10 bad news for every 1 good news that we have and it’s tiring. To add insult to injury, these are worsened by some social media posts by selfish people who only cared about their own petty grievances. (I, for one, am particularly incensed at the insensitivity of certain people (some of whom I personally knew) for having their priorities all messed up as they went on to rant about cancelled basketball games, lost signal, brag about their generators and other comforts while the majority of the population were battling floods, waves, fallen trees just to come out of the storm alive… But I’ll leave that for another entry.)
While it is “reality” and I acknowledge that something must be done about these problems that we all carry on our shoulders, I wouldn’t mind having some sort of relief every now and then by trying to see the good and beautiful from the simple things that we often overlook – things that most, if not all, of us would be able to relate to. (Just to make the problem solving a lighter and more manageable).
So yesterday in the middle of the blackout, I made a decision to take note and record things that make my day, be it a person, an animal, a song, a radio jingle or in this case – a quotable quote. Basically list down things that brings a smile to our face and lightens the mood when the goings get tough.
Enough of the bad news and let’s bring in the good vibes.
Good Vibes # 1: Feel Good Quotes (There’s a quote out there for everyone. We just have to find them at the right time.)
Quote of the day: “How to Love a Woman”
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”
- Bob Marley
Coming from Bob Marley, there’s a high chance that this song might also be about “Weed”, but in this case, I’d like to believe that it’s more applicable to women than to cannabis. This one particularly made me feel better as I had a person in mind the whole time.
There’s nothing like a nice heartfelt quote to make you feel better.
