The Awakened Consciousness

Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.

I have been through so much to get to where I am now. Rehabilitation from losing one's self, I could say, is one of the hardest experiences people encounter in a lifetime - I have been there and I am pretty convinced that I would not ever let myself get into that kind of situation. The situation where I chose to gave all of myself away - trusted the very most thing that was meant to stay with me: my heart.

I thought I would not be able to rise above all the things that happened to me but here I am, soaring higher than ever after one year of trying to find myself. It was a long and painful journey but every minute was  absolutely worth it. 

Ironically, that year was the best thing that ever happened to me. I learned the value of all the things I missed; and when I did, I chose to run after them.Everything feels like I have given another chance to make things right, to never commit the same mistakes all over again, to give myself a higher value than what I used to perceive. 

If there's one valuable lesson I have gained through such an undermining experience, it would be that life is a choice of how you want to make it - it is a choice between living and dying, or even succeeding and failing.


A Boundless Celebration

I have seen what its like to be in the darkest of places;
I rose above the shattered pieces of my heart. 
I choose to make it.
I choose to live.
