The Same Old Feeling

There are too many things going through my mind right now. Most of them are my philosophies, the rest are some unfinished business such as luggage packing, documents printing, and some uncertainties. There I am, hitting the keyboard, write down what I feel, expose the thoughts that freshly brewed from my brain, running away from the reality.

Thinking is a very important intellectual activity that keep you alive (well, in certain circumstances it does). We think because we judge, we judge because we wanna know, we wanna know because we human are programmed to. We think, because we wanna know what is best for us, or others. One doesn't simply taking other advice, one has to think before taking others advice, regardless how good it is. Sometimes people just forget how important thinking is.

People said that we have to let go, we have to forgive others, we have to calm down, we have to open our mind. We have to think before we do all that in order to make us a better person. With sufficient thoughts, it accumulates and contributes to 'experience'.

Read more, enrich your life, colour your mind, open your eyes, broaden your view, think differently, think about something that people usually don't think about. No one can grade your thoughts. In the end, what matters the most is that you tried to think. Subjective or insufficient thinking might lead to mistakes. For a wise person, it can be a valuable lesson in return. And that is what we call 'experience'. To reduce mistakes or making a wrong choice, one has to think more.

I am still learning how to think better.

People like to draw attentions from other. Nothing is wrong with that provided that the actions you take to draw someone's attention are constructive and positive. I can't tell you how traumatic it is to my brain when I see someone draws attention by doing something idiotic and meaningless enough. I pretend I never see a thing but in fact, I am avoiding some unwanted negative responses like "So what this is my life..." or "Mind your own business asshole..."

People then used to gain attentions and reputation by creating things, proving things, discovery and generate ideas. People now gain attentions by making their names into Guinness World Record by accomplishing some lame records like showing how many burgers he/she can eat in a row, how large a sushi can be made or changing hair style 7 times a week. The worst kind of attention whores (sorry, I can't think of a better word) treat people rudely and behave badly just to let someone notice their 'badassness'. That's just so pathetic.

The truth is that, being 'badass' and drawing unnecessary attentions doesn't make you look 'cool'. From my point of view (certainly from many others too), such behaviors reveal how immature are you physically, and how insecure are you deep inside.

You don't have to show how special you are because everyone is special.

'The Same Old Feeling' the title goes. It is a strange and familiar feeling that I feel, a feeling that comprises many other feelings. Right now, I feel so excited (Amazing comeback from 3-0 by Manchester United against Chelsea), happy (going to Australia soon), sad (someone else is feeling sad), calm (nice music) etc etc...

Feelings interacts with thoughts (reasons, memory, facts...), giving you motives, which lead to behaviors. This can be very tiring and annoying progress if it seems endless. Just how I wish I could have Albus Dumbledore's Pensieve.
