I was listening to that song for hours when doing this pieace :giggle:


If you ask me, I could list out thousands of reasons why I am unhappy; I'm not clever enough, I don't know what to do with my life, I weight way too much, I can't stop eating, I wish I'm someone else, I wish I enjoy life more, I've been told I'm such a useless person, I could do nothing, I'm such a burden, I can't even survive on my own, etc etc

But I know that if I keep on thinking negatively, I'm pretty sure I'll live a miserable, gloomy life for the rest of my life. That sounds.. SAD! Do I want to feel sorry for myself until the day I die?

Life is once and it's up to me what to do with my life, what path do I want to take and how do I want my life to be like. Every single reasons to be unhappy, if I look at it in a different way, ie in a positive way, it's possible to change my life; and thus change my unhappiness into happiness

Who decides something that does not turn out as expected, as unhappiness?

I might ask myself, "Why am I still alive" when things just don't go my way

My answer would be..
I'm glad that I'm alive. I don't need other reason to be happy because knowing that I'm still breathing at this moment, living my life, is more than enough to be happy. Stop being selfish asking this and that to be "happy" when life alone, is something to be happy about

I'm happy to be alive. I decide to be happy; and that's the only way for me to feel alive!

p/s: I've just finished watching Zettai Kareshi; and that got me thinking about life haha

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-06-01
When I saw this lovely well executed Text Art message Happiness 01 by ~Adila and read the Artist's Comments it reminded me of that yourself as much as anybody in the whole universe deserve your love. Be happy how you look, your talent and who you are. Be proud of that. And keep in mind that no one is perfect, that makes you who you are. ( Featured by Sander-Seto )

I love this!! I have been feeling kind of unhappy these past few days, even though I have already resolved the cause of it. I think that when it comes right down to it, every human being has a right to be happy, as long as it doesn't infringe on others' hapiness.

I love the way you made this piece. I can't believe its your first go at typography... Maybe your just extremely extraordinarily gifted. Also, I can relate quite a lot to this piece and like the way you have presented it and the message it holds for everyone. You can be sad because of many things, but for everything you feel sad about, there are at least 10 things that you should be feeling happy for. Congratulations on the Daily Deviation. You are a wonderful person with great ideas. Keep it up! You just made my day, just by looking at this one picture. Here's one more reason you should be happy: We all love you and think you're AWESOME in heaps of different ways! (Well, I can't guarantee everyone, but I can vouch for myself and the majority of the people who have ever clicked on the thumbnail to this piece of extraordinary work.)

+fav for it.

happiness heals and cures and manifests the impossible into possible. What is impossible? break it down and u get I M Possible. What is incurable? break that down and u get In Curable [curable from within]. happiness is where miracles and phenomenons originate from
