It is easy to unravel. Get a hold of the right piece of thread, pull and pull and bit by bit it all comes undone. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life being slowly unravelled.

People are often let down – by the system, by loved ones, by themselves and I do not plan to sit and wait for others to help or sit and complain because life isn’t fair and things do not work out the way they should.

I have much to be thankful for. I already hold enough happy moments to fill up more than one lifetime. I choose to be the kind of person who rises to challenges instead of dwelling on obstacles. I am not helpless.

I don’t do traditional new year’s resolutions, but if I had one, it would be this:

“Don’t wish to be normal. Wish to be yourself. To the hilt. Find out what you’re best at, and develop it, and hopscotch your weaknesses. Wish to be great at whatever you are.”
