If someone asked me how I am, I take a deep breath, smile and say, " u noe me...the usual".But how usual is usual I don't know. It amazes me how much I have matured within the span of 2 years. I know I sound like a broken record player for saying that. But I had a deep conversation with a fellow good friend and she, unintentionally made me think of how much life has changed. Looking back, I wish I had known all I know now. But, that's what memories are for. Reminiscing the past is always hard. Nevertheless, as I sit here with my comfy cup of ice-cream, I am appreciative of all that has happened. If life had a rewind button, I would press it. I would go back in time and make the necessary changes. But then again, I am who I am today because of what happened yesterday. I won't deny that either.
So, to all those who are going through a bad phase in life, I would say this. Life has no rules. It's like going into a wide sea blindfolded. You think you know what's going on but then you get blown away by the wind. That's how it works. I believe in believing. I'm the kinda girl who looks up at the sky and wishes upon the moon and stars. I believe if we wish hard enough, things will happen. And in saying that, I would also say this. Faith is what you think you believe. So, if life got a little tough, look at the moon and wish for it to change. It will. As funny as it sounds, it will.
Giving up is not why God made us. If HE brought us to it, HE will bring us through it. So, in life never ever give up. No matter how tough things got, no matter how much that seems like the easy way out, and no matter how much it hurts. Just don't give up. Don't give up on something you believe in, don't give up on someone you love and don't give up on yourself. Life is what you make of it.
Hence, as I sit here and indulge in ice-cream, I look around and see the familiar faces I love and I know everything happens for a reason. I have what I have and I don't have what I don't have for a reason.
