If you're here looking for some good writing, close the tab right now. This is a blog that started off as a writing solace and instead turned into a place to rant off about anything and everything. So, this is going to be an awful lot of just penning down my thoughts, and then deciphering the confusion in emotions, with a not-so-gloomy outlook, or an ambivalent ending, if not a total-downer one.
Peace out. You've been warned.

Food for thought

This one's for Hera Naushahi; thank you for inspiring me.

     Everyday I look into the mirror and ask myself, what is so about today? What is so special about this person? What is it about her that distinguished her as an individual? Everyday these questions bombard my mind and it is tonight, at his very moment, that I actually found the answer.

     Yes. Everyday, I look at the same person in the mirror, but every new day is a new adventure. Everyday is a new page in this book we call life; My life is a book and I'm the ink to it. Everyday, I can either choose to be happy about what I'm going to do or be miserable about it. Everyday, I can smile and light up the world with just my attitude. I can say to myself, 'today is a new day, a new beginning and I have a chance at life again'. I am lucky to have survived another day when countless people die and slowly depart this world, leaving nothing but dust behind.

     Life's too short to live with regrets. So why can't I live it to the fullest? Why can't I say 'why not change my destiny today'? I'm going to work hard and set things right for myself. No matter how hard it gets, I won't stop trying. "When the going gets tough, the tough gets going." I read this somewhere, a long time ago and now that I think of it, why not actually implement what I've thought or planned? No matter how hard the challenges gets, I know I'm stronger, which is why I'm still here today and I'm adamant of the fact that I will yet again win. Not because I haven't lost but because I'm going to revive the will in to me to try again if I fail.

     So now, when I look at myself in the mirror, I don't want to be distinguished, different or set apart- I just want to be me, because I am my own person and I am the only person who can change my life. I am unique, just as everyone, in my own way and I don't need to prove that to anyone. This time, when I smile, I'm going to smile wide because I'm on my way to change the course of my destiny...

I know this was more of a blog entry, but anyhow I just had to write it down.
