Random Questions I Asked Myself

For the last few weeks I’ve been thinking of writing. But I don’t have a concrete idea, a topic. All I have is an empty screen. While browsing the net, I stumbled a q&a video, and the first question was “how are you?”. That question stuck on my head. Those 3 words are very powerful, especially during these times. I started to question myself, when was the last time I ask someone how are they? When was the last time I ask myself, how am I?

I’ve been in constant communication with my family back home, and yesterday was the last time I asked my brother how are they and our mother. I had a short catch up sesh with my sister in law yesterday also.

I cannot remember when was the last time I check on myself, to be honest. And it seems I don’t have the right questions to ask myself either. I don’t know if I’m making sense right now.

The weather and music are making me emotional, so I decided to google… “questions to ask yourself”. And voila! I found a lot… hahahaha… I randomly select the questions that I want to ask myself, let’s see how will it go.

  1. How are you?

Honestly? I don’t know. Does it make sense? Kidding. I’m good. Although physically I don’t feel good. Working from home for the last 2 months, makes me lazy. Too lazy to go out for a walk or a run. Too lazy to do simple exercise. All I want to do is lay around the corner or sleep during the weekends.

2. What am I grateful for today?

I am grateful that I am given the chance to be alive today. That I have a husband who understand my mood swings. I am grateful that I have food on our table. That our families back home are all good.

3. Who am I checking in on, or connecting with, today?

My brother, I just sent him a random message. My younger cousins and my niece.

4. Have I done anything lately worth remembering?

I wanted to believe that I have. I really hope I have.

5. Have I made someone smile today?

Yes. I always made it a point to smile at someone. To smile to random strangers. And today is not an exception. While I was doing my grocery, I smiled to random strangers and great them “good morning”. How did I know that I made them smile when we are all wearing a mask? I just know. I can see it from their eyes and I can feel it. 😉

What did I feel after answering those 5 random questions? I felt happy. That’s for sure.

In today’s technology it is so easy for us to communicate, but it is very rare that someone genuinely ask how are you. Be that someone. Ask random family members and friends how are they. It will put a smile on their faces and makes their hearts do a little dance.

Photo Dump: Sembawang Hot Spring Park

After many failed attempts of visiting the park, we finally set foot on the newly renovated Sembawang Hot Spring Park.

For some strange reasons during weekends I always woke up early, earlier than weekdays! Since today we don’t have other plans, I told the husband we should visit the park since it’s only walking distance away from our place.

When we reached the place it was already crowded, although it was only around 8am, guess the uncles and aunties woke up early also. 🙂 The foot bath was already crowded, we never had the chance to sit down and experience it, so we settled in soaking our foot on the pale.

Ma! I never thought it was that hot!!! hahahaha… Nevertheless, we had a good time while we were there. 🙂

For more information about the park, you may visit the National Parks page.

The Sunday Currently V40

For the last two years, I’ve been really bad ’bout my blog. I have neglected it like it doesn’t have a purpose in my life. I’ve been telling myself I’ll have time to sit down and think and write and not allow my lazy a$$ to take control. Unfortunately, the lazy a$$ has won over and over and over. I have a lot of ideas running in my mind, I’ve been thinking of revamping the whole site. Thinking of writing new series, but none of them comes to life. Sad.

Few weeks ago, I was already sitting in one corner with my laptop and a small idea. I was really hoping I’ll be able to write it down, but I was distracted with this thing called youtube and other things that the internet offers. The lazy a$$ has won over, again. Sad.

Last night, I conditioned my mind that no matter what happens, on the following day, sunday, I will really sit down, and write. At least for my sunday currently entry. So here I am, trying my best to beat my lazy a$$.

Reading
Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee
Since the year starts I also started going back to reading. Im proud to say I have finished 2 books and I’m in my third now. Hoping this will continue…

Writing
My 40th entry to The Sunday Currently. If I’ll be able to publish it by today (16/02/2020), I’ll be the happiest. Knowing how many times I’ve tried to write in the past and ended deleting them.

Listening
Random songs in youtube. Just to keep me sane while writing. I’m one of those people who can’t move without any background music/ noise.

Thinking
I should finish this entry and publish.

Smelling
Nothing in particular. I can smell that I’ll be able to finish and publish this entry, does it make any sense? I hope so.

Wishing
Wishing to go out and have another cup of coffee. I had one earlier during breakfast, but I felt I need another cup.

Wearing
Jammies. I didn’t dare to change, I’m afraid I might end up not doing anything on my entry again.

Loving
That I finally beat the lazy a$$.

Needing
To do the household chores. Yesterday, I was just lounging the whole day.

Wanting
To go out, have another cup of coffee and prolly finish the book that I started reading.

Feeling
I don’t know. Nah… if it make sense.
