Love ItLove It

The roads we are going through

They are different, even for those traveling together: one will see flowering shrubs on his side, and the other one will only the dirty ditch. We choose not only which way we go, but also which side we look at.

Today was a terribly difficult morning: there was a lack of sleep and I crashed my favorite cup when tried to make a coffee after came back from the airport (a gift from my daughter specially made for me with my name), so I got frustrated, put on my headphones on and went out for short jogging.

The sky was already light, I ran half-closed eyes and listened to music. I remembered a broken cup and wanted to curse loudly. How important sometimes can be gifts given to us by a loved one. But the tears popped out not because of sadness,  but of the joy: life has given me such great love that it does not fit in the chest and is the greatest treasure I found in myself. I’m so happy having them, my children.

My path is neither more beautiful nor uglier than others, no much or less dusty, or planted with roses. We all get this and that. Just we should look at the more beautiful side of life. 

The world is beautiful, and it is not worth the tears of a broken cup, even if it means a lot to you. So I still choose to celebrate a life today.
