You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts.

You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth.
But that’s all.

Sugar, The Rumpus Advice Column #72

You've got to be true to yourself because at the end of the day we only answerable to own self not to anybody else. I had stop measure everything by dollar and cents. I try my very best to live as decent as I can, being moderate in everything, not that I have a lot of money before either, but by doing what I truly love all the hectic does not matter anymore. Every dollar and cents that I spend and share with people I love seems more meaningful, I am so proud that I earned everything through the hardship and I appreciate it even better. I do not live based on people expectation anymore, do not have to answer to anyone but myself. This small little thing what I call luxury. 

I had to make a few big decision last two days. Being invited to be part of prestigious project to showcase my art, when at the very last minute I had to call it off due to situation that my heart do not agree to. When I believe I do not want to be dictated by anyone. When I don't have to face anymore rude people that so self centred and do not know how respect people at all. I am glad that I have courage to say NO, and to be involve in the situation that make me feel uneasy is the last thing I want to do nowadays.

And this three days I am so relief that I can take proper nap… rather than struggling to complete the project  and work with somebody that I do not like to:)
