Cling to your imperfections... They're what makes you unique.
And below are some of my accounts on different social networks... add, subscribe, follow, reblog :)For those who don't know me, I'm Marah, a twenty years old fresh graduate from Manila. YAY me! HAHA I love those people who makes me laugh, which is not really a challenge because I laugh easily. I’m the kind of girl who gets happy over the little things. I love to travel and reading, it comes naturally to me almost like breathing, so if i'm not blogging, trust me i'm reading my books. :)
For some reason our generation is obsessed with everyone being an artist. everyone wants to be a painter, photographer, writer, musician…. myself included. I want to create beauty with words.When I look at the writing of some peers who have this similar ambition, I just want to crawl into a hole either because its a) wonderful and I want to be as good as them, or more often, b) absolutely awful. I view my writing as decent, its not Mark Twain, Leo Tolstoy, or Charles Dickens by any stretch of the imagination but it’s not awful for a 20 year old with no formal training. I wonder what my writing to a real author looks like. if they just view me as an amateur as I view those. Do I actually have a future with creating worlds with a readers imagination? or am I just another kid with a dream, lying to myself about the reality of my craft.
"there’s a part of me which has always wanted to hear a man say, “Let me take care of you forever,”
and I have never heard it spoken before. Over the last few years, I’d given up looking for that person,
learned how to say this heartening sentence to myself,especially in times of fear.
But to hear it from someone else now, from someone who is speaking sincerely . . ."
— Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)
I am what some people would call a fool in love with love and I won't apologize for it! HAHA!
I like to look at the bright side of life and love.
This may make me sound naive...which I, by no means am.
I am also a realist...so while I love all things romantic,
I also know that the story doesn't always end happily ever after,
that sometimes love doesn't flow smoothly and things don't turn out the way we want them to.
The real challenge is to be nobody but be myself in this world. I’m not a perfect girl. My hair doesn't always stay in place and I spill a lot of things. I’m pretty clumsy, i always trip or fall or bump my head into something && sometimes I have a broken heart </3. But when I think about it and I take a step back.. I remember how amazing my life truly is and that maybe - I like being imperfect.
Keep trying, hold on, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about. :)
Keep in touch,
