Monkeys lived in Kuala Lumpur long before people arrived and built a city. Just over 160 years ago, the sprawling metropolis of today looked just like the surrounding hills: covered in dense jungle. Thousands of monkeys called the jungle home. The former rainforest is now the city centre and suburbs, but the monkeys haven’t gone anywhere – they’ve just been pushed back. #culturetrip

Ugh I’m so sick of snow, can it for real be spring now?! Girl has some flowers to plant! Seriously, my greenhouse is getting out of control. They need to get outside before my boyfriend dumps me and I officially become the crazy plant lady 😬
I’ve always said and showed how independent I am. I’ve always chased my dreams, my vision and been doing so since 2009. I wake up every day and I remember why I decided to leave my family back home, why I ended a relationship with the man of my dreams, why I left my dearest friends to have NO friends at all for a while. And it is SCARY! Sometimes I still need to pinch myself to realise how far I’ve come.
It’s so easy to judge people. People open their mouth so quickly to say: “Believe a bit more in yourself. It’s within. You’re stronger than you think.”
Oh well, duh! I know that! Otherwise I wouldn’t be where I’m at. If I didn’t believe in myself I would have gone back home after a year of living abroad. If I wasn’t strong enough I would have gone back home to be around my childhood friends. I would have gotten a “safe job” with my mom and made my family my circle.
I never gave up and people forget I am still STANDING HERE, fighting for what’s right FOR ME, and me only.
So, when I actually need a hug or cry about a problem, it does NOT mean I need to believe in myself more. It also doesn’t mean that I am doubting myself. It only means I need to vent it out. I simply need a hug to RECHARGE my energies because hey!! boss mamma here has a lot on her plate! 🙋🏽♀️👑 So never judge somebody’s weakest weeks or days. You never know what they are going through. They sometimes ONLY need a recharge and a thumbs up; not for validation but as a nice gesture of somebody who belongs to the circle SHE CHOSE TO BE PART OF.
Be kind to others. Watch your words. “Believe in yourself more” means nothing to somebody who has NEVER GIVEN UP on her dreams. That’s it. 🏹
