"Just living is not enough", said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."
— Hans Christian Andersen.

no use hoping for a miracle.

It's too easy to turn a blind light to the light
It's too easy to bow your head and pray
There are some times when you should try to find your own voice
This is one voice you must find today


Strength is not measured by the weight of the dumbbells you carry;
Strength is not measured by the weight of the burdens you carry;
Strength is not measured by the weight of the tears you resist from shedding;
Strength is not measured by the weight of the thoughts that constantly loop in your head.

Sometimes when you think that you have everything under control,
you lose it.

Sometimes when you think you have everything planned out,
you lose the focus.

You forget the main point of everything.


A sunflower in her hand as she walked round and round the garden, trying to find somewhere she could feel comfortable sitting down.

She say down by the pond, admiring the little daisies around it. Catching sight of her reflection, she tried to find life in her eyes. There were none. She looked harder, giving a smile and expecting her eyes to show some signs of happiness. Once again, there were none.

Slouching and leaning away from the pond, she stared at the whirls of the water as fishes in it swam around with similar lifeless eyes.

Why is it that a girl dolled up so pretty could look at her reflection and yet have lifeless eyes?

Why are there expectations?
Why must there be a reason for everything?

The girl with the sunflower dolled up for the mere purpose of looking presentable. 

If she had not had expectations of looking pretty, it would not have mattered to her if she managed to attract positive attention towards herself.
Because she would still be beautiful inside.

If she had not had expectations of finding life in her eyes, it would not have mattered if she had to intentionally smile to feel joy and see happiness in her eyes.
Because happiness can be felt without forcing a smile.

If she had expected more than what she saw and moved in for a closer look, she might have fallen in.


Taking steps back at times, 
moving away from expectations, 
sometimes bring more comfort,
instead of being too close for comfort.

Having everything planned out,
with a reason and purpose behind it all,
may not simply be the best way
to feel genuine happiness.

Forcing a smile,
yet feeling far from it,
having high expectations,
would only lead to disappointment.

Take a deep breath,
loosen up and step back,
have a look at the bigger picture,
it might be a better view.
