this cruel world

Nothing is right in this world today. Even when you do the right things, you will still be at the wrong end. Someone drops a wallet, you pick it up to give it back to the rightful owner, then comes someone else accusing you of stealing, causing you to be the one who gets beat up instead of getting a thank you for doing what's right. That's just an example by the way. Nothing to do with me or anybody I know. 

I'm not trying to be negative here. Once in a while, we need to get a huge dose of reality to realize that nothing is as it seems. I'm not asking you to stop being nice. I want you to be aware that the outcome you get might not be as expected. 

Someone doesn't like you, you try hard to get his/her approval. You do everything to make that person change his/her perception towards you. In the end, the person might like you or hate you even more. Let people think what they think, you are who you are. 

You need to realize the possibility of the negative outcome in every situation. It's not to make you feel even worse about yourself but to prepare yourself for the worst so that you don't feel so bad, so that you could get past whatever horrible things that are being thrown at you.

Be strong! 
If you're not, don't worry. 
Just listen to Katy Perry. After that you will be. =)

ps: lama gila tak update blog. readers dulu pun dah lari. haha.

Right place, right time

Have you ever been the chosen one? Being at the right place at the right time? Well, lucky you! I have also been in that position. So yeah, lucky me too! 

But for me, that was quite some time ago.

Now it's more of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Haha. 

Right place, right time. It's fated. It's what you're destined for. Everything is smooth-sailing. You might feel that it is just your luck but it's actually fate doing its job.

The person walking in front of you ignored a blind lady who tries to cross the road. You stepped up and helped the lady cross the road. After you have both crossed safely, suddenly the lady tells you that she is not blind. She is actually looking for a sincere, kind-hearted person to be her son/daughter-in-law. And she is actually a millionaire with a beautiful daughter/handsome son. Tadaaa! 

You are alone at home, reading the newspaper and you hear your stomach growling, pleading to be fed. You turn to the next page and saw a McD advertisement. "Oh, I should just order a burger now before I die of starvation!". You are about to make a call when someone knocks on your door. It turns out that she got the wrong house. *sigh* You finally called McD and to your surprise, you are the 1000th caller! If it wasn't for the girl who came to the wrong house, you'd be the 997th.

Ok! I know! My examples are a bit exaggerated. But you get the picture. =D 

If something is really meant to be yours, it will be. 
If it's not, there's definitely something better ahead. 
You just need to keep your head held high and keep going.

Never doubt your fabulous self!

ps: come on rozeeta! don't give up!
