MANTRA

There's this quote that I really like. You can say that it's my most favorite quote ever.

I love it so much it actually kinda becomes my mantra.

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

A bit too cliche? Well, it IS a good quote (it's by Marylin Monroe btw. Man, she could really churn out quotable morsels of wisdom). And something I truly believe in.

I believe in every core of that words.

People DO change, and there's really nothing you can do about it. You can't ask people to sincerely be what you want them to be on command. What you can do is lament the change for eternity. But that's just not productive, is it? So you just have to let go. Don't waste your energy on it. It's not easy, you know, letting go. So sometimes I have to do it bit by bit, but I'm doing it at least. At least I'm not stuck and keep being a baby about it. I'm not even sure if it's for the best, but it is what it is, for now.

Things DO go wrong, even when you have already carefully planned everything in your head. But, I do learn to enjoy the moments where everything's a bliss more. To really take a moment and appreciate how "just right" that moments are. To not take them for granted.

This might sound bitter, but I truly believe, that when it comes down to it, trusting yourself is your best bet.You never know with people, even the ones you ought to trust fully may surprise you. lol I sound like a scorned damsel in distress. But really though, I've learnt that you just can't place a burden on people to always be truthful to you. You can't place that great of responsibility on other people.

And the last thing might just be my favorite of all. Sometimes good things DO fall apart to make way for better things. I love the lingering sense of hope attached to that sentence. It gives me the courage to rise my chin, stand straight, and just keep on going. Not just it is what it is, but what it WILL be.

Not sure if I make much sense. I'm super famished now ­čśź.

Okay okay, just NOW as I finished typing on famished, my Go-Food order came ­čśŹ!!! ok brb to eat now.

Back.

This is totally not related to this post as a whole, but might as well share it while we're on the topic.
Ordered this Creamy Dory Rice Bowl from random tenant I saw on the "nearby list" and I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the portion. It's generous, especially for the price. It costs me 26.5k IDR. Quite cheap, huh? Tastes pretty yummy too. This is the name of the restaurant:

Mister Lie Rice Bowl
Ruko Paramount 7 CS, Blok DF3 No. 27
Jl. Boulevard Raya Gading Serpong, Gading Serpong, Serpong, Tangerang

Worth every penny. Definitely gonna order from this place again via Go-Food ('cos I'm a couch potato and it's free delivery using Go-Pay, so why bother?). Man, I love Go-Food. It never disappoints, always delivers ­čśë.

Ok, i'm finishing this post now. Back to eating. It's amazing how much food can make me happy.
