I'm still discovering the world, a day at a time.

“But the beginning of things, of a world especially, is necessarily vague, tangled, chaotic, and exceedingly disturbing. How few of us ever emerge from such beginnings! How many souls perish in its tumult!”

There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroad, afraid, confused, without a roadmap. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. Of course when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back. Lucas Scott, One Tree Hill (via kari-shma)

<p>Today has been a trying day and its only been 2 days into the new year.. </p>

<p>-I witnessed someone breaking into my car last night, thankfully nothing important was taken and nothing was broken or hurt but I still get paranoid when I hear noises from the drive way <br/>
-work is tiring when I work straight from 9am-8pm</p>

<p>I have no energy but I try to be productive and so some research and reading for work. After such a long day though, my emotions are shot and I become irritable and upset. Freedom writers was a nice release to express all the pent up emotions I&#8217;ve held in all day and I realize that I shouldn&#8217;t be down on myself. I have lived another day, I have accomplished goals, despite how small it is, I have the freedom to do as I please. My problems don&#8217;t seem like much anymore compared to the lives I see of the students portrayed in the movie. I realize I need to be thankful more often, more giving, more forgiving.. I can&#8217;t keep holding onto my problems because it only brings me down and elevates the anger even more. I&#8217;ve held onto some things in my past that have settled below my surface and made me bitter. I deserve better. I need to be better. So I realize, a year from now, will all this angst and sadness matter? Probably not. I do deserve to be upset every once in awhile though, it&#8217;s supposed to be healthy to express myself. But it&#8217;s better to be happy as well. And I choose happiness.

I always enjoy discovering new photo sharing apps. It’s the little things in life :)

Maybe a good cry is all you need to feel better
