everything starts with you!
The picture says it all, 😉
“Everything happens for a reason.”
I always believed in this sentence, and then things that happened to me, really make it even more true.
When I lost a chance, I looked at a brighter way and moved on. Then I realised, actually there was a surprise in the future that was prepared for me.
When you feel low, remember there will be another road for you to walk and thus, never give up hope. That road could even be better.
Everything happens for a reason.
“No. Don’t give up hope just yet. It’s the last thing to go. When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope.”
―Pittacus Lore, I Am Number Four
I love this quote alot.
We are who we are.
No one can stop you from doing the things you love, no one can tell you that you can’t do it.
No one can discourage you because you are the sky.
You are who you are and you own your own piece of sky.
Things that change might be like the weather , could be cloudy, could be sunny.
However, the main choice of what you want to do, is still yours.
Because you are the sky 😉
It looks like some ordinary flowers.
But No, it wasn’t like any other.
These were flowers that were cut out using plastic waterbottles and then being coated with colourful paint.
She was so proud of it that she insist having all of us to take photo of it 😉
That moment was touching, but warming.
Yesterday, (20/1/2013) I went for this volunteering event with a few of my friends.It was the first volunteer work I am doing since the start of 2013, good start huh? xD
We helped to pack the food and daily necessity and brought to some elderly’s houses.
It was a really eye-opener for us because it is like we haven’t really have such experience before. All of them were pretty friendly and some were so cute.
One even told me, ” You have a pretty name. And Pretty name are for nice people.”
It was really heartwarming for me to hear that.
And I really felt the describable warmth despite the cold and rainy weather.
Not only that, I was surprised at the Projects people initiated in our country, and yes, by youngsters. There were also many more volunteers than what I expected. 😉
But I’m grateful for those people who have used their efforts to actually help those who in need. I’m glad and I’m thankful.
Another new year resolution: help even more people with the small hands of ours.
Because I know I can contribute, I therefore believe I can volunteer my contribution.

And we make it happen. 🙂
I thought I found my dream,
Maybe it wasn’t as realistic as it seem.
Where were my dreams supposed to meet,
What was I trying to seek?
Where was this path going to lead,
What was the thing I really need?
I was confused of where I was going,
but I forgot the world would continue moving.
I lost my way,
but I was the only one who can have a say.
Dilemma brought me nowhere,
and I was feeling like I was somewhere.
Now I figured out my thought,
It was actually everything that I was being taught.
Life does not always give you what you expected,
that was how it was started.
Tears I shed that day,
it was the lesson I have to pay.
Right now, I wouldn’t even mind,
because it could be a dream that I might find.
I wouldn’t choose to be sad,
and rather, follow where the road of my future led.
