I'm slowly learning that ....

I’m slowly learning that the energy it takes to react to every bad thing that happens to you drains you and stops you from seeing the other good things in life. 
I’m slowly learning that I’m not going to be everyone’s cup of tea and I won’t be able to get everyone to treat me the way I want to be treated and that’s okay. I’m slowly learning that trying so hard to ‘win’ anyone is just a waste of time and energy and it fills you with nothing but emptiness.
I’m slowly learning that not reacting doesn’t mean I’m okay with things, it just means I’m choosing to rise above it. I’m choosing to take the lesson it has served and learn from it. I’m choosing to be the bigger person. I’m choosing my peace of mind because that’s what I truly need. I don’t need more drama. I don’t need people making me feel like I’m not good enough. I don’t need fights and arguments and fake connections.  I’m slowly learning that sometimes not saying anything at all says everything.
I’m slowly learning that reactin…

Harsh Truth ~

But that harsh truth is, that it does.
Often we're so in grossed in our work that we forget to value, 
appreciate & recognise those that we're actually working for. 
We get so wrapped up in our own lives, 
that we forget the people that make up our life. 
Whatever is taken for granted will eventually be taken away. 
That's when we end up missing the most, the people that we least appreciated.
Because we never think that the last time will be the last time, 
we think we have more but we dont.
Because this is really the last ~
Wakayama (和歌山) is located on the south of osaka at the Kansai Region,  on Honshu island kii Penisula ~ 
It was off the beaten path of Japan. But there was translation guide and it does seem like a tourist attraction
but the bus driver that we met, wasn't a bit friendly.
But well, that was only the few bus driver we met ~ The peaceful little town along the coast with castle that tower over the city, having incredible fresh seafood and kawaii cat station master. Will visit in Spring when the sakura blossoms over the beautiful Kimii-dera temple ~

The white breathe of snow ~

To make up for its bone chilling cold,  winter sends its snow storm which cancelled  all the JR trains from the coast area.  There we are being stuck in Kanazawa cancelling our day trip to Kyoto ~
A last min booked GH surprise us with cute receptionist and cosy room! So in Kanazawa, unafraid of the freezing stormy rain & snow, we march through the castles, gardens, museum, district  singing our hearts out, making snow balls.... Isn't that what we all enjoy doing?


If it wasnt hard, everyone would do it. It's the hard that makes it great!
Snowboarding has always been on my to do list after skiing ~
After falling down 999times, battered, bruises with my aching limbs,  tail bone crack, stiff shoulder & soft tissue injury to my wrist....

Im so glad i manage to learn this sport ~
Thanks to my instructor, Chris for being so patient with me  when he know i had a bad day ~

Now remember heel edge, toe edge, switch, zig zag,  turning from toe to heel & turning from heel to toe ..........


Till we snowboard again ~  @ 野沢温泉スキー場 (Nozawa Onsen)

Negligence in Japan ~

I'm usually a very cautious traveller ~ with all my stuffs etc... never once in my trips to the europe, US, aussie or  any other countries (except japan) that i drop my valuables ~
Been to japan 3rd time ~ And yes, i lost my valuables 3 times in Japan due to my negligence ~ My hp, my SB mug & recently my wallet ~ (some kind souls manage to return my hp & mug to me)
I though i drop in my friend's car : NOPE I though i misplace it on the shoe rack when removing shoe in the GH: NOPE In the end, i drop it on the street while running back to the GH in the snow ~ It was actually being pile under the snow storm overnight!
I had a bad day due to my snowboarding,  i skip the morning session just to call back the cc company & i lost all my yens! (Can you imagine how much yens i still have and  this is only the 4th day I'm in japan)
Couldn't master my right toe to heel turning and had a few falls onto my back and painful tail bone, fogging of my stupid goggles and i tear like shit ~ Tha…

Time ~

Time is perhaps life's greatest teacher ~ Here we are passing through another year with our eyes blindfolded ~
Being thankful for growing older. Because not everyones gets this opportunity ~ Aging with a good health and grace is a rare and beautiful gift ~

Being thankful for everything i have done or who i met in 2017.

i have learn that sometimes the people i'm close to or want most are the one we are best without ~
i have learn to walk away from the relationships that aren't what i want them to be and  understand that they never will be no matter how hard we both try ~
i have learn that i didn't deserve the pain i endured tho i'm partly responsible for it ~
i have learn that if someone wants to be with me, they will make it happen ~
i must learn to stop dwelling in the past because it kills me ~
i have learn that sometimes it's better to just go home alone ~
i have learn that when red flags are waving, i should't ignore and trust myself a little more ~
i have learn not…
