DEC 11 - Looking back at where I’ve been and what I’ve gone through, it makes me realise I’ve grown a lot. I remember when problems were limited to not having money to buy a lollypop and all that mattered was we had variety of toys to show off. I even remember when homework was just colouring and joining dots to make an alphabet. Those were the good old days!
I grew up and so did my thoughts, ideas and feelings. Life started getting confusing. There were more things to think about and that feeling of being responsible was what mattered. Happiness lied in getting to watch your favourite TV series and one was disheartened once in awhile when you didn’t have good clothes to wear. Back then I didn’t even care about how I looked and what I wore. All that I cared about was I had my mom with me. Silly old days!
From those days to today, everything is so different. It isn’t that things have changed but my view about them certainly has. Well, earlier reading a paragraph was a tough task but now reading a novel is not a big deal. Earlier it hurt when our toys broke but now it’s our heart that breaks and we cry. Friendship was in sharing a pencil, a lunchbox and today it has grown to sharing thoughts and secrets.
These days, I’ve learned there is day after night like there is happiness after sorrow. I’ve learned that if you cannot be a pencil that can write happiness, be an eraser instead and erase people’s sorrows.
We never know what life has in store for us. “Now” is never going to happen again.
What is gone is gone and what is yet to come will surely come. People change with time and so does the world. The world you knew yesterday will never be the world you’ll get to know tomorrow. So live each and every moment and learn from it as “Everything happens for a reason!”
