When I was young, I have a lot of thoughts in mind which I never expected to overcome. I have a lot of worries and my curiosity sometimes gave me the unexpected.
Back then, I never thought I'll be able to live a long life. There was never a day where I wiped my tears while looking at the stars in the night sky. They were encouraging to look at as they shine and smile for your eyes to see.
I was like any other girl, fragile and afraid of something or someone who might hurt us but has the prettiest smile. I never wanted to live my life like how others do. I have my own life and I wanted it to be unique among everyone else.
In my years of existence, I have achieved many goals, cried many tears, found solutions to countless problems and found many friends who were always there by my side supporting me. While those days were full of smiles, faith has to give days were happiness turns into sorrow.
I have witnessed people come and go. Some of my friends, in my family and people I owe a lot to, they have bid goodbye and turned into memories. I couldn't say much but it is how the cycle of life goes.
There were many stories left untold, questions without answers, and moments which I wanted to experience with everybody. I wish I had spent more time and days with my dear ones and collected more memories together.
Maybe my parents had the same thoughts when they turned old and a bit forgotten. If only time could be reversed, I would take the chance to be with them more than I did before. I would have stayed on their side and just be their daughter, a child who once thought she wouldn't overcome the things ahead.
"Strength doesn't come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't." - Rikki Rogers
As a child, we had so many questions and worries in mind which we know no answers about and how can we overcome them. Our innocence and curiosity sometimes have brought us to greater heights and got us to witness many things by experience.
As we grow up, these experiences accumulate and make us become a strong person. These are the things in life that helps us grow and be intelligent to help us deal with the things around us.
We may not end up becoming the best of what we want to be and what we want to have, life will give us the strength to carry on and become a great person like on one else has.
Is strength enough to keep us on our feet as life goes on? Why do you think people come and go?
