Vanity and memory

Me taking a photo of myself and the little boy watching a video of himself when he was little-r. This may look like vanity but it's really more of...memory. Preserving it. Capturing moments and looking back on them later. Life is short after all.

The LSS Club

I've been saying "life sucks, sometimes" so many times, I think I should start a "life sucks sometimes" club. (It even has the same initials as me, except that of course the last letter is on the chopping block.) And despite how the club name sounds, it's actually going to be a positive-leaning club: sh** happens, life sucks (sometimes), and still...let's just keep swimming, just keep swimming.

(Alternative name: Dory Club. For people who need to forget and just keep swimming.)

Anyway, here is my favorite quote of the moment:

(Totally unrelated to the LSS club by the way.)

A friend and I were talking, and she said, "I can't believe what happened to ___."

My response: "Anah jud nah ang life, dai."

Have I gone from being a glass-half-full to a glass-half-empty kind of girl?

I don't know. I don't think so. I think I'm still a generally optimistic person. I guess what I've been through has just opened my eyes to the fact that life sucks sometimes.

You can try your best and have good intentions, but that doesn't mean life will be kind to you. In the end, your only consolation is that you tried your best and you had good intentions.

You can love and keep your promises, but that doesn't mean you will be loved in return and the promises made to you kept. In the end, your only consolation will be that you loved and kept your promises.

And sometimes the only thing you can tell yourself is that, hey, average life expectancy is only, say, 80 years. Only 40+ years to go.
