(July 6, 2010 ~Roma, Italia)
On my journey, I have learned that...
Nothing is fixed. There is no black and white. Everything is- to you- as you see it. If you want to take a plain-sketch paper and color the lines in with bright-red like blossoms in the gardens that smell so sweet; you may. But it doesn’t have to always be bright-red. You can flood your plain-sketch pencil papers with red today, then blue tomorrow, and then if you want, after that, you can color them purple, violet, pink... you can change everything... by changing the way you see it. By changing colors.
I have learned that the best thing to do- is what you want to do. And if you don’t know what it is that you want to do- just start walking in one direction and if that’s the direction you want to go, you’ll find that you will keep on going. And if it’s not really where you want to go... you’ll find yourself turning around. And going where you really want to go.
I have learned not to look for the “right thing” because life is not about looking for “what’s right.” It’s about looking for what’s yours.
I have learned that there is nothing to be afraid of. Really. And if you say “I can do it,” you can. Really.
I have learned that crossing the street isn’t too hard, and that it’s okay for your feet to get dirty sometimes.
I have learned that destiny is real. I’ve learned what it is, and how she works.
I have learned that it is possible to fall in love in a few days.
I have learned that seagulls are beautiful and that they are like white paper planes floating through the sky with bells attached to them.
I have learned that there are too many wonderful people in the world to waste my time thinking of the no-good ones.
The world is bigger than you think it is, and it is perfect. The good and the bad. Together, it is all perfect.
So there is nothing to be afraid of.
This is what I have learned.
