Project 365

Welcome! This is my own 365 project of creating at least one post per day about the stuff that I learnt, achieved, and found, the stuff that made me happy, or the new thing I did every single day.

The project was started on 21 February 2010. It has stopped for few times but I am determined to continue!

This project is dedicated to myself. I want to feel grateful for every single thing I have. I want to be thankful for my own life. I just want to feel that I have enough.

The Desires

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy; to return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips

— Kahlil Gibran

A Soul Mate

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…

The Reason is You

You are the reason why even at the saddest part of my life, I smile. Even at confusion, I understand. Even in betrayal, I trust. Even in fear of pain, I love.

My heart will be taken

One day You will take my heart completely and make it more fiery than a dragon. Your eyelashes will write on my heart the poem that could never come from the pen of a poet.

Girl’s Night

Jessie and Ari stayed over at my place for a night. We talked about many things; especially about our adorable guys 😛 and relationships in general. Jessie seemed to be too tired and she slept earlier than us; while Ari and I kept talking until Fajr prayer. The good thing was, the Fajr prayer was at 3.15am so I didn’t need to worry about missing my prayer 😉

Anyway, we talked about relationships last night. One thing I noticed about my past relationships was that I tend to get bored easily. I’m not be able to keep the sparkles and chemistry strong enough to keep me going. I’m not able to prevent the flame from perishing. It’s sad, I know. And it’s something that I’ve been trying to find for the answer or the solution for some time now. It irritates me. Could it be because I haven’t find the right guy yet? Or could it be because of myself?!?

I’m still trying to find the answer.

Why, My Darling?

Why did you choose me
out of all the faces in
all of the places?

I’ll be there…

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well it’s all I’m after
Just call my name, and I’ll be there… :) 

for you.

This Is Love

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
First, to let go of live.
In the end, to take a step without feet;
to regard this world as invisible,
and to disregard what appears to be the self.

— Jalal ad-Din Rumi

I don’t want to reach the secret sky, but I am halfway up there. I let myself fly. And I don’t even know what I’m thinking….


When you forgive, you love, and when you love, God’s light shines through you.

Favorite Scene

If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever.

If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love… I love… I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on. — Mr. Darcy

This is my most favorite scenes and most romantic ones in 2005’s version of Pride & Prejudice. I love the way he says it. Sure, I prefer Colin Firth to be in this role, but in this scene, Mcfadyen’s role as Mr. Darcy makes my heart melt. I’d most probably faint if somebody ever says to me that way. Such a beautiful and romantic scene!

[I promise, this will be the last post talking about Pride & Prejudice!]
