On Life

Life is strange like that, when you want something so bad; you wait for it and you keep on waiting and wondering. And when it finally comes, it’s nothing like you’ve ever imagined it would be, but soon enough; it’ll be over, and you’ll curl up in your bed at night wishing you could go back to when you were waiting, back to the unknown. And that’s how strange life is, you’re never happy with what you’ve got. You always yearn for what you had, or what someone else has, but that doesn’t make you a bad person, that only makes you human. We’re all just humans, we are weak and fragile but when things get rough and the universe conspires against us, we stand tall, we help each other even if we’re total strangers. There is good in all of us, you just have to look deep inside yourself and think for a moment, think about how small you really are. Think about others, help others and let them help you. Love yourself and let others love you. You are a beautiful being, remember this everyday and say it. “I am a beautiful being.”

One more thing, never ever forget to smile. Smile in the fact of those who love you, and smile more in the face of those who don’t.
