To learn is a life long commitment. You’ll never know/learn enough. The dark path that you thought had brought you down can lead you to the most beautiful things in your life. It is fascinating to see how dreams transform into reality and how much you can achieve in the most difficult times when you least expect them. Trust your instinct, put your heart and mind into it… and venture down that that path with hope and courage. That’s the beacon that will not lead you astray. Look hard and follow the light. That beacon’s light is always there but sometimes you are distracted by the scenery around you making you forget its call. Seek for the light… dare yourself to dream, and dream big. Trust me, you’ll get there…
Have I found mine? I dare not say…

It seemed normal to reassure someone to be “strong” and “patient” in the face of adversity. Unfortunately, at times, those words caused even more pain.

“…. it was time to move on,
a time to appreciate all that life had given you and to strive towards health in the hopes that, one day, you too would be able to give back in whatever way you can.
You are given but one life. During your lifetime, there will be many chances and opportunities; it is these that need to be recognised for the blessings that they are, even if they come in the form of a disease, as unwelcome a gift as that may be.
Once that time comes, it will not be a period to dwell on the past, to ask, “Why me?”
Appreciate your family and friends, create the memories of a lifetime, and hope you would be able to return the kindness showered on you.”
