"The one with the choices we take...."

1
By our birthright, being human promises us one thing; the feeling of being loved so that in return we show compassion for the people we've learned to grow fond of. The people who lends a breather at times we feel the very life of us is being choked away. And the people of which reminds us so much of how important it is to hold on a tad longer, and to live in the heat of the moment instead of in the worry of the future nor the passing past.

I've tasted my own share of being loved as well as alienated, and believe me as much as the latter is a slice of the pie I'd rather pass down it has helped me grow as a person. I've come to realise through wisdom of growing up that to every envy there's passion, and to every blunder there's a potential greatness. I've learned that the true meaning of hardship and pain in life is to get from a great happy time to another. And by embracing these challenges we elucidate the values and virtues of either 'growing old' or just plain growing; condecsending on whether you find the glass half-empty or half-full.

It's hard to impress and satisfy everyone's needs. But it can never harm to us to try. I guess that's the beauty of what God have given us; the ability to consider and make choices. Or else He'd just throw His servants in and out of heaven and hell at will, as He will and could do. We govern our own destiny, carve our own path and despite everything make choices by our own right. That's how we grow up, and that's how we learn.

That's why at the end of it all, you could potentially be your greatest ally or your worst enemy.

But well, we're just ordinary people. And as John Legend preaches; maybe we just should take it slow....
