There was a time in my life when everything lined up perfectly. I was on top of the world. I thought, "Life is easy!" Then came the time when no matter what I did, I couldn't seem to get it right. I thought to myself "Life is so hard!" After all that, I just wanted to sleep. "Wake me up when this is all over.." I would say. That's when everything changed and my life was simply unrecognizable. So I learned to ride the waves, appreciate the blessings, and see life for what it really was. -- An Adventure
Things were going south for so long. Everything became habitual. I didn't think I could be happy again. I thought waking up would always feel like a dream and seeing the sunset would feel like a painting on display in a museum. I could feel things but not actually experience them.

"lets be realistic," he said with a scoff.I was being realistic. Yes, my reality was to spend the rest of my life with you.Yes, my reality was to grasp your face and connect our lips in a white dress.Yes, my reality was to hold your hand as my fingers dug within your flesh as the doctors yelled for me to push.Yes, my reality was to help you wash your gray short hair and tease each other about our wrinkles.Yes, my reality was to stare at grandchildren as we reminisced about our lives.You were my reality, and I was being realistic."you're right," I mumbled in agreement, "i need to be realistic."I was being realistic.
