It’s not about how much time you spent in taking care of yourself but how much love you earned in taking care of yourself.

I Am Just A Dreamer

I like to close my eyes sometimes and dream of the future.

 

I wake up one day, and I am mentally healthy. That I have won my battle against my mental illness. That things don’t bother me that much anymore. Like the butterfly effect, passing time, the number eight and thinking that I’m make-believe.

 

I wake up one day, and I just do the things that I do. I write the books that I want to write. I post the blog posts that I want to post. I run regularly under the deep blue sky while the sun shines on me like I am a flower that has survived wilting.

 

I wake up one day, and I’m just happy because I am healed, and I am living like it means something. I wake up one day, and I don’t even think about killing myself because life is full of possibilities that don’t scare me because every path in life is the right path. And if alternate realities exist then so what? That won’t stop me from trying to live this prime existence of mine fully.

 

I like to close my eyes sometimes and dream of the future. I like to open them not without a sense melancholy that I will eventually get better.

Take My Despair, I Want It Not

Take my despair,
I want it not.

 
For I have learned 
to live one day at a time.

 
For I have learned 
to live without expectations.

 
So take my despair,
I want it not.

 
For I have finally learned
that nothing stays the same 
forever.

 
For I have finally learned 
that nothing is more powerful
than hope.

 
So take my despair,
I want it not.
