On a morning I was free, it struck me that it had just rained heavily. I yolo-ed and reorganised my plans for the day so that I could visit the Botanic Gardens.
I wasn’t disappointed.
The smell of wet grass, the not-too-warm-yet sunlight on my skin… the excitement of taking photos under such friendly lighting… Everything came together to make it a beautiful morning experience.
I would like to remember this. Not all adversity has to be fought through.
Adversity can be met with Patience. Kindness. Acceptance. Love.
The sun has been quite cooperative with my schedule recently.
I am thankful that it has been easier to be thankful for each new day.
On a particularly adventurous day.
I must admit it does not come naturally to ask for help.
There were times when I felt (and still feel) like I’m a burden. Like who am I to take up so much of others’ time or to request to company of someone who must have better things to do?
But I hope I will one day completely realise and believe that this is how our world must go on – to be able to ask for help when we need it and to be able to give when we can.
I am thankful for all the help I have been able to afford and receive, as well as the help I have been able to give, whether consciously or otherwise.
