Smile, thinking of the good, rather than holding onto the bad that once happened to you.
All the time I was sad and angry for what I didn’t receive from them, I forgot to remember all the good things that I got from the very same exact people.
Mom was busy putting lights and cleaning the room. Dad was reading the newspaper. Brother was busy playing with firecrackers.
She took up the photos to clean them. She stood looking at one photo – “the photo of her elder son who had gone abroad to work”
She hadn’t seen him for 1 year and wished him to be here and to celebrate this day like in the past.
Suddenly, someone closed her eyes.
She knew in that small sentence that he had come. She turned back and hugged him. His little brother ran to hug him. Dad stood up and smiled.
It was a time of happiness and rejoices and the best celebration they had.
His mother collected all the tiny oddments of clothes from the stores, so she could sew at least one decent dress for her child.
She doesn’t need my money to be happy. Just some chocolates or a teddy, and my girl is happy as the entire world.
And those who stay, be like a bird
Let you fly high soaring through the skies
Cause there are a million possibilities
Waiting to be conquered by you.
Believe in yourself and move forward. You may encounter many problems and obstacles. But it’s your life that you are living. Tear down the things that are trying to bring you down. Only when you break those obstacles and move forward, you’ll succeed in life.
