Path & light

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…

I lost it!

Ideas popped into my mind

Quickly I grabbed a pen

Wanted to scribble them down

But before any words were written

They just disappeared

Leaving me feeling mad

Frustrated I threw my pen 

and went silent

Because, I lost it again!


*the feeling everytime I was struggling with words. And the reason why I did not update my blog for quite sometime. 

Endless possibilities

 

Standing on the beach
The waves washed my feet
Swirling sands building foundation
Firmly held my feet onto the ground
I could feel the strong force
Each time the waves came
Neither pushing nor pulling me down
The grip was getting stronger
As the sands thickened
Made me not wanting to leave
The sea, the waves and the sky taught me
The challenges in my life were sent to make me stronger
Teaching me patience and gratitude
Like the waves that never gave up crawling onto the beach
The sands that kept coming back after being washed away
And the sea with endless possibilities
Only the sky is the limit as far as I could see
I will not give up, until my last breath is taken away from me

I lost my words

Dear words,

I wanted to write
I could not get you out
Where have you been?
Hiding deep in my brain?

I didn’t know how to tell
What really was in my mind
Maybe it was the pain
Making the right you hard to find

I just hope my dear words
Please be kind
The next time around

Me, myself.
#my struggle after the surgery (feb16). I do hope this would explain my silence.

I am awake and I smile

Hope, Love and Patience
Are here with me at all times
Don’t have to count 1 2 3
Don’t have to call for them to come
I can feel their presence even if I could not see
That’s the gift He is giving me
To help me through with this journey
Knowing that He is always there
Guiding me in every step I have to take
Giving me back my smile
So I could share with the love of my life
#gratitude
