Last weekend, a friend asked me a question that caught me off-guard. The question's fairly simple but sometimes it's really the simplest of questions that are the hardest to answer.

"Are you happy?"

His question made me do a re-evaluation of my life. And my honest answer to him was "I am not super duper happy, but I am also not sad. I am right there in the middle. I still have alot of unrealized dreams, but I believe I will achieve them one by one. Maybe happy's not the right term. Steady lang ako. Steady, that's what I am."

I am excited for changes that will happen in my life in the next few months. Finally, I will be able to tick off one major item off of my bucket list. Hehehe. I used to be afraid of growing old. But as I grow older, I realize that I feel more empowered, more self-sufficient and more cognizant of the things that truly matter. I am not super duper happy nor am I sad. But I feel good where I am. And I guess, that's what matters, at least for now.

The Unpure One,

I've learned that having courage will eventually give you the real sense of happiness..

Because with courage, you wont be afraid to go out of your comfort zone, therefore you can do unusual things.. things that would eventually make you happy

but really, if someone would ask that also to me, i would think twice. a simple question that needs a better answer. :)

Happy? Yes. Ecstatic? No.

Ecstatic is over-rated. But I am happy.
