Life has a way of getting us. In a blink of an eye, wars can be won and lives can be lost. We all live in a world where we do not know what is in store for us right behind the corner. Recent experience on a rough sea made one realized, what a fragile human being we all are. The idea of being at the mercy of the blazing waves is sickening. Helpless.
This life changing experience made me realized what I want and what are my goals in life. It made me brave enough to admit, to give in, but alas, it is too late to do anything about it. The worse part is, being thousands of miles away, there is nothing much that I can do about it. Someone once told me that "hope are for losers". Well, I hope for the best be it in the past, the present or the future. Hopefully, we all see the sacrifices other people made for us.
For now, the phrases "I should have..." and "If only..." will always keep on repeating itself inside. The world would definitely be a better place if we practice and understand these 3 sentences; "Thank you", "I am sorry" and "I love you".
To you my dear, all we need is a little patience.
PS: Thank you to Fariz for letting me chip in. He is one of those who can really stand all the crap I put in and for being there when I am up or down.

Jangan bersedih, kerana kesedihan hanya akan membuatkan air yang segar terasa pahit, dan sekuntum bunga mawar yang indah kelihatan layu, kebun yang menghijau kelihatan seperti gurun pasir yang gersang, dan kehidupan dunia terasa bagai dipenjara.
Jangan bersedih, kerana anda masih memiliki dua mata, dua telinga, dua bibir, dua tangan, dua kaki, lidah dan hati, kedamaian, keamanan dan kesihatan tubuh badan.
Jangan bersedih, kerana anda masih memiliki agama yang anda yakini kebenarannya, mempunyai rumah sebagai tempat tinggal, roti untuk dimakan, air untuk diminum, pakaian untuk dipakai dan keluarga untuk anda cintai... jadi mengapa harus bersedih..
