Finding the strength without your help

“Well, now
If little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you
Little by little
If suddenly you forget me
Do not look for me
For I shall already have forgotten you

If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life
And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots
That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land” 

“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened... or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.” 

“It is important that we forgive ourselves for making mistakes. We need to learn from our errors and move on.” 

“I demolish my bridges behind me...then there is no choice but to move forward” 

“I have always found it odd that people who think passive aggressively ignoring a person is making a point to them. The only point it makes to anyone is your inability to articulate your point of view because deep down you know you can’t win. It’s better to assert yourself and tell the person you are moving on without them and why, rather than leave a lasting impression of cowardness on your part in a person’s mind by avoiding them.”

“Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can't build on it; it's only good for wallowing in.” 

“One of the best times for figuring out who you are & what you really want out of life? Right after a break-up.” 

Quotes tagged as "moving-on" (showing 61-90 of 337)
“You are worth everything that nature can give you.
And I pray to whatever I believe in that you find your happiness. You find pride in yourself.
And you find true love.
And you can look at that person and understand the impact that have had in your life.
Because you have surprised me with every step you took.
And if letting you go means that I love you.

Then I love you.
Have fun out there.” 

“The most difficult aspect of moving on is accepting that the other person already did.”

Almost Home

 I'm in my last class for the transition course and ill soon be taking that long glorious four hour drive back to my home county. I wonder what I will think about on the way home... the decisions i've made, what i've accomplished, how much i've grown... not to mention the feeling i'll have knowing that certain things are over, that certain things that I used to hate are behind me and that i'll no longer have to deal with them.  It feels surreal almost, the things i've known/done for the past eight years aren't in the books anymore.  I know the change and the transition will surely be difficult, but I have the right guidance and contacts to make this smooth.

not too much longer !  see you guys soon


if anyone reading this is on the MSG program, please hit me up and i'll talk to you about the checkout process and the requirements you'll have to meet.

My Journey Pt 3 - Malaysia "Truly Asia"

My ohhhhh my.... where do I even begin.  

First off I want to let all my dive buddies know that you will not be in this one.  I'm saving my diving adventures with you guys for another post. 

Malaysia is by far  my favorite country that i've visited.  There are so many great things about this country, so many that I honestly cannot explain.  The vibe from the locals is so warm and welcoming... and thats quite hard to understand because Malaysia is a melting pot, so to speak.  You don't need a visa to enter the country, so there is diversity.  It took me a while to figure out who were malaysians, who were indians, who were "malays'... the learning experience there overall was just amazing.  I can honestly say that I would  move there if I could land a good jurrrb....  "Monkees - AHEM"

Their way of living is a pace that I'm comfortable with, its so busy, but yet it isn't at the same time.  The only thing about Malaysia that I had a hard time getting used to was the weather.  I love the four seasons and my favorite is the fall, but Malaysia is hot and humid pretty much all year...annnnd they have some pretty impressive storms.

I don't want to make this too long because I have a ton of pictures, but I hope you can get a better understanding of what Malaysia is like.  

Friends from Malaysia -  Living in your country for a year was truly the best experience of my life.. i'll be seeing you all again !

one other thing... I traveled  to China, Indonesia, Malacca- Malaysia and Tioman Island- Malaysia... these are going to be in another posting.

This is Malaysia, Lah ! 

                                       This is the KLCC Pertronas towers... this is Malaysia's famous landmark. These are still to this day, the tallest twin buildings in the world.  This first one is a picture I took when Thomas and I were grabbing some food.

I believe Pin took this photo

Ok this is one of my first time meeting the local friends... Pin and Vera.. also we have Kenny, David, and Thomas... This was a Latin festival we went to... 

This is Mr. Thomas Lew .. 
sorry this first pic is blurry... but whateves

I really enjoyed this place.  Very cool area to visit.

We went on a "jungle trek"

Phillip and David... good guys ! 

This is Kevin... he is the adventure expert.  Sadly this great guy lost his life a few months ago trying to save someone from drowning.

May you rest in peace, my friend.

Phillip again

Planking is still cool

Check out this video of the trek

it's time for ya to meet Pin... shes one of my best friends and she made my time in Malaysia

Pin and Vera... I believe we went for Indian food this day.

One of our favorite things to do in Malaysia... Batik painting.  We spent A LOT !!!! of time creating works of art as seen below.  This was a typical saturday / sunday... going for a snack, then painting, then lunch, maybe shopping, then dinner

This is the lovely ladies the owned the painting shop

This is what our table typically looked like

Meet Megan ... she also has some skills

"Vera also has some skills, but I dont have a photo"

I often found myself bugging Pin while she was at work

This was the day that I left for my scuba diving trip to Indonesia.

Our local guards were the best !  breaking some bread with these fine gentlemen

well Tanderon (?) chicken and Naan

This is how the Naan is made... they will flatten out some dough, put somce cheese / spices or whatever, then nead it some, then flatten again and slap to the side of the pit.  Once its finished you will wrap around the chicken or just dip in the sause of your choice.

Here is the chicken

and you can also get some good coffee

This is how I drank mine at work

We found out where rubber comes from...

rubber trees  (Phillip taking his photos)

This is Fawzy, he was one of my favorite drivers

one of the nicest things anyone has ever done.  I don't have pics of it, but she also turned on Jonny Cash and downloaded a fire crackel/pops sounds

I also made some funny photos of us

Went to a bird park 

Turned the place into a haunted house

Kat and I went to a concert and I seen this guy... let me remind you this hasn't been around in a long time... but here this guy is wearing it over 10,000 miles away.  It was surprising to see
