As we grow older, we a thing or two about the positions of people in our lives. The more and more people we meet, we interact and build relationships with, likewise, the more and more people we are bound to drift apart from. Some we’d love to hold on to, ones who choose to stay, ones who up & leave us, and though at times it really hurts us, we’d have to let them walk away.
Letting go has always been a difficult task to a lot of us - a father giving away his daughter on her wedding day, an injured athlete having to let go of his passion, a man letting go of happy memories shared with his special woman. All but a painful and heartbreaking process when the thing called life knocks on the front door.
A good friend of mine, William, said to me, “I don’t let go of my past, but I run forward with it on me at all times”. Although there are some people we have grown to love that we have to let go of, there are times we have to accept the reality that sometimes, there are people that are meant to be loved from a distance.
I once heard the phrase, “Not everyone deserves a front row seat. Life is a theatre, so invite your audience carefully”. You see, not everyone we love can reciprocate the amount of love that we are willing to provide. Some fall short, and others, finds it impossible to offer at it all. Come to think of it, it’s must be an amazing feeling having to let go of the negativity and the stress ‘caused by the misfortunate relationships and events we have in our lives. The nuisance of having to tolerate the painful remembrance of someone & the memories attached to them. Imagine.
Letting go does not necessarily mean to completely forget, it just simply mean to let things fall into places and keep moving forward. For us to continue in our destination, we need to release all the excess baggage we have during our journey. We must learn to travel light. In essence, in order for the show to go on, we should realize who should sit in the front row and who should be moved to the ‘balcony of our lives’, ‘cause not everyone deserves a front row seat.

Merry Sunday friends, I’m glad to be back after being washed away by a weekend of work and Noah’s Ark levels of rain. I’ve had some catching up to do with my speakers, so I ordered out from a fancy Computer store, picked up a movie from RedBox (Wall-E’s their favorite), lit an aromatic candle called “Sensual Circuits”, and had some alone time. It paid off, because as a result the speaks put out some Avicii gold. Sure I had heard his remix of “Derezzed” off Daft Punk’s “Tron” album awhile back, but any masterbaker knows vocals are the key ingredient to a delicious beat cake. Open the door because Avicii’s here with 35 wedding-sized beat cakes, all with your name on ‘em. Time to feel good about yourself again friends, because these cakes are a dieters’ dream come true: 0 grams of sugar, 0 grams of fat, organic and -200 calories (due to all the dancing). Chow down without feeling guilty.
The number that will always stick with me forever, when I stepped on the scale on September 21. I realized on that day, impossible IS nothing. To be the best, you have to act like the best. A whole lifestyle change has to happen. The most important factor, self discipline. I realized that people can hold you back and it is up to you to push yourself forward. Keep yourself going when all the odds are against you and keep fighting. At the end of the day, it is only you. I vowed to myself that I would never check the scale, my success would not be based on a number. But I had to. I realized that this number is only a checkpoint to what I can do. So try to stop me now. 186 to 156, you kidding me? I have just started.
