  • After several years of having to roam my comfort zone, I am now walking a new path to where future is uncertain but all signs of progress are visible. Best decision I could take, nonetheless.

    This year, I decided to write all the things I should be grateful for. It made me feel better, I had the nagging feeling that all this time I am taking things for granted.

    Some say as you get older, you care less what other people think, I believe that is true due to the fact that by then, you've seen most of the things we knew were superficial and time and again we miss the point in some corners of our life. We've seen the strings, and accordingly we act to either cut them or leave the show altogether.

    And here's a picture of sunset sky by the bridge, to remind me that when crossing bridges, you leave something behind to go to somewhere we willed ourselves to be in, out of desire or sheer luck.

    I leave this one with a quote from a song:

    "Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much
    Or berate yourself either
    Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's."
