Musings: Blessed is he who expects nothing. For he shall never be disappointed.

''Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed'' is a quote I must have heard some time during my years at high school. Expectations and hopes are two vital things we unconsciously hang onto, but at times...

HIGH HOPES

Easier said than done, true, but then again it's a known fact that when you lower your expectations of people, you will automatically lower your disappointments.

My problem with all this is that this somehow goes against me idiolizing and truly believing in the power of love and respect. I expect a great deal out of the people I trust and hang out with, because if one doesn't have the right people there to support him/her, then it's one sad, worthless world.

I'm torn between two worlds here, of course. But if I had to really think about it, my verdict would go something like this:

Each time you find yourself in a situation where you're fighting with all your might for someone to honour a promise or stay in your life, remember that the minute you stay silent is in fact the moment they will start realizing how they will be without you in their life.  

Oh, and blessed is he who expects nothing. For he shall never be disappointed.

4th February 2019 is the last time I logged in on my website to jot down some thoughts and share them online as I've been doing for the past 7 years or so. Up until last year, I used to log in and touch base at least once a week and whilst on facebook I still do scribble what I'm going through and post on a regular basis (too much, I know, and I apologise for bugging you this much!), I have to admit that my online blog hasn't been given the

Back from India with Il-Progett

Back from India with Il-Progett
Category: thinks

It's been two weeks since I've returned from India and you probably wouldn't believe me if I had to tell you it all still feels so surreal. I go to my favourite lounge bar to sip on a prosecco and read the newspapers but I can't fully enjoy it as I always did just yet. I go to the shopping mall to get me some bits and bobs but I tell myself I'm gonna have to come back another time because I seem to be a bit distracted these days. I will soon get back to the

She believed she could so she did; 2018 so far

She believed she could so she did; 2018 so far

So far, 2018 has been the year of lessons learnt and changes (and we're still in March!)

It feels as if it's the year of mixed feelings, the year in which I sometimes felt taken for a ride, the year in which I've questioned more than once whether I really mattered to some people.
