I got asked a lot on how to stay positive, happy and optimistic by people around me. Honestly I never thought that, that’s how people in my life sees me. I always see myself as the bitter, salty and the one who likes to argue haha. To be really honest my positivity isn’t always constant, there are times when I just get myself drown in negativity, especially when I’m all alone. That’s why as much as I need the “me time”, I’d go straight and surround myself with my favorite people in my life when I’m all “recharged”, that’s the only way that I can shut that dark side of me down.
Bubi went back to have her holidays here in Brunei (so fun when you can go to your own country for a vacation HAHA goals sob), so of course being the clingy bunch of losers we are, we almost spent our times together everyday. Despite me having my final exams and Teet going back to school once again, we still managed to squeezed in some time to hang out, name it lunch or hi-tea, we even had a sleepover before Bub went back to Aussie! I was the happiest of all, maybe because I was so stressed out after shoving myself with law notes non-stop. Bub and Teet never fails to bring the best out of me, these bunch of goons.
I also had my first raya convoy with my lawfam right after our last paper ended. I was all jakun because that was my first convoy with my friends, and I get to be the driver! HEHE. I don’t know how can I get so lucky but my lawfam is a bunch of amazing and wonderful people, though they can be savage at times HAHA, but I hope that they realize how they’ve impacted my life positively even though our friendships only started a year ago. So please bear with me for 1-5 more years guys teeheee :>
I also have a very supportive mom (she just knew that I’ve a blog, for real, few months ago and she supported this hobby of mine!!! Though before that she thought that I was just playing around pfftt. Not sure if she read this though haha), y’all know so well that I’m mommy’s princess hehe. I also have friends who went up to me when they misses me despite them having tight schedules, being all understanding that I’m not the type to start the conversation first just ’cause I’m afraid that I’ll annoy them haha. And I also have you guys, my driving forces that keeps me wanting to write more and more and more, from reviews to my thoughts, feelings and my lame stories. How can you guys still read this thing smh hahaha.
The answer to my positive, happy and quirky self, other than being devoted to Allah swt, is simply you guys.
It took me awhile to realize this, but really, I’m always positive (as you all claimed hehe) and quirky because I’m actually being surrounded by positive people. You guys are wonderful bunch of people who pushed me to be better and better. I told you guys my passions and instead of telling me how risky and ridiculous they are, you guys told me to just do it and supports me endlessly. When I’m in need of your help, numerous hands never fails to reach me. When I long for shoulders to cry on, you guys offered me warm hugs instead. Y’all spoiled me, I’m forever grateful for you guys. I thank God everyday for letting you guys to be part of my life, it would’ve been dull without y’all <3
Surround yourself with the right people, who supports you, who loves you endlessly. Don’t ever push those who are willing to accept you as who you are away, don’t ever take them for granted. Surround yourself with people who have amazing personalities, the ones who never fails to inspire you in anyway. Never afraid to accept someone that you think is way better than you, take that ego down and learn from them, just let yourself grow with them.
There are more to talk about other than gossiping and backbiting, that’s what I realize whenever I hangout with my best friends. Unless you’re hurting us in some ways, the two rarely talk and pick on other people. This is one of the contributions to have a positive mind; try to avoid negative topics when talking with your best friends. There are more to talk about really, for example we had a hot debate about arranged marriage during this era. It’s a fun topic! hehe. You’ll be able to see the good in everyone too after that, try it!
All and all, never forget to cherish and appreciate them. They’re not going to be with you forever, don’t just selfishly suck on their positive energies without giving them the same energy back. Always compliment each other, bring them along into your journey and hold them tight. The more you get, the more you should give <3
I won’t be the person I am today without you guys, I love you all. You guys are my happy pills, don’t ever stop being one kays. <3
