Richard Bach once said:
"The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it."
To you whom I haven't met yet,
I have read many status update by my friends in Facebook about how horrible 2015 was & the sense of disappointment that 2016 may not be that different. Not just this year, in my life, I have observed that many people do not know how to say thanks to God & such common gratefulness are close to extinction.
Some of us that took the road less travelled are able to enjoy the richness of life. Day by day, we may wish for a better tomorrow. But aren't we thankful that we do not always get our prayers answered? I walked out on my previous relationship despite praying almost every day that she can be 'the one' because I knew her heart & love isn't for me anymore. Love certainly not a bed of roses. But what's the point of pursuing a girl that could not share moments of joy & embrace our imperfections right? I am pretty sure I will not regret my decision because I took it with my heart & not with my anger. Dear you, I wish I could say yes but the reality is every love story is different. You can put two lovebirds together & the outcome can still be different.
Those moments pass when I remind myself that it is possible to get through even the darkest love when one has the light of courage within to say 'yes' for one more time. My hummingbird, I am thankful that there is this silver liningin the form of 455 letters that made my pursuit of happiness a joyride. Until then, have yourself a meaningful end of the year celebration & remember, there is always a way to be good again in 2016 if you open your windows to the soul.
You will shine my life & chase the darkness far, far & far away.
The Half Moon Serenades.
