Promise yourself to dream more and hesitate less.
To believe in yourself more and judge yourself less by the accomplishments of others.
To appreciate your family and friends for the wonderful ways they make your life better.
Promise yourself to accept life as it comes and truly make each day special.
To become more independent and more willing to change.
To fill your life with special times,
and make your dreams come true.

This photo I took, 2 years ago.
A lot has changed since then.
But in this photo, a memory stays.
It is frozen in time.
A dream once made, a dream come true.
Fears crossed the night
It was something in disguised
I hid and creeped under my bed
Where darkness engulfs my very soul.
I waited and waited, waited in vain
My mind went panicking “save me from here!”
Yet no one could hear
My voice came rumbling outside but it was silence in the night
I shut my voice and searched the light
“A tiny spark would do. A tiny light would do.”
But nothing, I was in despair.
I wept, my fears slowly fading.
My tears rolled through my cheeks.
It was a sign that I was weak.
But they kept rolling and flowing.
“How can I stop myself from crying?”
Tears dried. Throat numb. Body aching.
Outside my window, the sun is shining.
The darkness passed, the light is back.
I smiled, “Darkness never stays forever. Balance-I guess.”
I wonder why beautiful things in this world are unreachable.
Like the stars in the sky and the clouds up above.
Like the sun when it rises and when it sets.
I wonder how it feels to touch them with my bare hands.
It would surely feel amazing like nothing can compare.
~Have a sip of life. See the beauty in every simple things.
