Keep calm and oom on

A Zen moment with a slice of carrot cake from TOAST 

Yesterday I had do something I dreaded all weekend. Well, it is something I have come to stress over just about every other weekend. I know I can't run away from it but it feels me with so much unhappiness just thinking about it.

As I lay in bed awake at 5:29am, it suddenly occurred to me that I should just do it for my parents. Firstly, they would be very disappointed if I didn't go through it and secondly, I'm bratty by nature (and not by nurture), so I don't want my actions to reflect badly on my parents. As soon as I knew what or rather, who was my source of motivation, I felt a lot calmer and went back to sleep.

Hope you found your 'oom' spot this weekend =)

It's not easy to please everyone. And yes I put up with dreaded family routines and relatives for my parents. Whenever I feel like biting someone's head off I think of people i care about and bite my own tongue. For such moments I choose not to please myself. Sorry for this unsolicited comment but I just feel like saying all these after reading this entry
