Hello there, how's life? Good? Bad? Sorry for not posting for so long, I'm a busy girl now! If you're stressing about life, here are 7 things that make life more bearable.
Whether you are old or young, friends make life just that much more bearable. In school, you have your friends who understand what you're going through and who support each other. At work, you have your colleagues to gossip with about the new boss and the clients/customers. They allow you to let off just enough steam to make you go on with life despite it seeming to suck so bad. In your neighbourhood, you have your chatting buddies where you gather together to watch football or have a tennis match with. They make you laugh and realize there's really more into life than what you're stressing about.
Your family is the people you can always fall back to no matter what you did. They forgive and they forget with welcoming arms back home. They make sure you're properly fed, healthy and cared for. Yes, they nag, but all because they care for you! Knowing there are people who care, isn't that enough?
Being a music lover, i really cannot imagine a world without it. I mean, what else can you do when you're in awkward situations? Just plug in your headphones, you're in your own little wonderland. Or when you're feeling down, and wanting to cry, just plug into sad songs and cry! Better yet, plug into happy songs and instantly feel better. Nothing beats music.
Other than watching your favorite youtubers, you can also watch tv shows. I know i can always fall back to the ellen show to make me feel better and she really just makes life seem more bearable. Others are comedy youtubers like nigahiga, buzzfeed and inspirational videos.
5. My samsung galaxy note 4
Being a convert from an avid apple user, samsung really surprised me. Although the transitional phase was a little difficult to get hold of, but all was worthwhile. One of the best features is the ability to glance at my schedule for the day right when i unlock my phone thanks to the ability to install widgets on the home screen. Another feature that i love is the s pen. I mean, it gives me so much precision and also convenience when taking quick notes.
6. Recognition and appreciation
Recognition gives you a sense of achievement. Being recognized for your efforts, be it a raise, a compliment or being featured by any sort just makes everything that you've fought for and worked hard for worthwhile. Appreciation is little gestures by other people who you've been especially kind to, be it helping out on homework, or holding the door for the lady. A simple thank you or a nod and smile just make everything you've done appreciated, and makes life bearable!
Now this is tricky. Love can be your enemy or it could be your best drug. But when you're in love, you just feel that everything that's happening to you can all be ignored. And you look forward to a life with your partner, which you work hard for. You will feel that everything is worthwhile and find that life is actually bearable.

Though these are all examples of living in the past, but what does it matter if they make you happy? You derive your own ecstasy and overwhelm yourself with positivity, I think this is how you can make life more endurable. You indulge yourself in these moments and almost numb yourself from the negativity in your current life/moment. It gives you a temporary surge of hope until reality hits you again.
Perhaps some people don't relive moments but create new ones. This is why us humans are such great beings; the power of our imagination, cognition and emotions are almost limitless. What's your ecstasy? For me, I love love, I think love is such a powerful emotion, not just towards people but towards what you do. When you love what you do and are surrounded by people you love and who love you, you are basically winning in life. Nothing beats knowing that someone will always be there for you and knowing that what you are going to do the next moment is what you love.
To put it simply, my life goal is returning home to my loved ones from doing what I love.
To my loved one, sometimes when I look at you, I just cannot believe that we actually happened. From the day we first met, to our first date, to our second, third and so on, to now. It still feels so surreal to me. To have someone like you to love me, this is the great love I've been pining for. You're my ecstasy, one who makes me go sugar-high even just by walking or being by your side.

1. Love Myself
You know what they say, you have to love yourself before loving others!
2. Love Others More
Not to limit my love and love passionately. Love my family, friends, schoolmates, people, students and teachers.
3. Stay Positive
Staying positive is difficult, but it sets you in a calm mood and allows you to think more rationally and realize the other side of the story.
4. Stay Healthy
I've been falling sick quite often in 2014, and I admit this could be due to my lack of exercise. I'd like to spend more time on exercising and eating right.
5. Stay Creative
You can only outdo yourself if you think creatively. Sometimes you might just need to stop learning to do even bigger things. Be inventive and you might just surprise yourself.
6. Being Consistent in School
I've got quite decent results for my first semester in school, and I'm not intending to sabotage this! I want to do even better, and for this to happen, I would need to be consistent in my work in school and revising them after school!
7. Be an Awesome Friend
In 2014, I've made many new friends, due to my part time job and new school. I want to be an awesome friend to them and make even more new friends! Because, who doesn't like an awesome friend and someone to talk to when they need, right?
8. Make More Milestones
2014 has been filled with many milestones, and I'm just hoping more of it to happen this next year. I want to outdo myself!
In order to be successful in life, I need to have a right attitude towards life and get to know myself better, or rather, better myself as a person. I'd want to further improve my social skills, attitude, skills in general, being kind and face difficulties without fear.
10. Earn & Save More Money
Of course, who can forget about this. I'll be officially starting to teach violin to have an income and hopefully independent of my own expenses. I also want to save more money for my future; settling down, growing my family and travel around the world with the love of my life.
What are some of your promises?
