Life is never fair
Whoever said it is
Has never lived it the way it is supposed to be lived
Life is about
Curbing the crimson tide
Fighting what cannot be seen
And enjoying things in the midst of lacking
Life is about finding those very special people
And journeying together with them to your finish line to say,
“Ah, yes, life was never unfair after all.”
I won’t say grand things like, “If I give my best, I’ll accomplish everything.” But by trying my best, I give myself a fighting chance to HAVE SOMETHING rather than giving up and attesting to the fact that I was born NOTHING and will end up as NOTHING.
Senses tingling with sweat as cold as ice and a little bit tachycardic is how I would describe myself right about now.
I finally clicked the much anticipated “Publish” button on Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing and am still waiting for their notification that’ll say that my book is ready, live and available on their store. The wait is killing me.
The mixed feelings this experience is giving me is really nauseating. And until this very moment wherein I am writing this blog entry, I’m still not sure if what I did was a good decision but what I am sure of is that this is something I really wanted to do.
Unlike the main character in my book, I am unable to see what lies ahead of me. With that said, there is no other option for me but to charge forward with all my might and hope for the best.
“We do have a lot in common. The same air, the same Earth, the same sky. Maybe if we started to look at what’s the same instead of looking at what’s different… well, who knows?”
As I was watching the first Pokemon movie with my four year-old cousin to help familiarize him with the English language, the line above really hit me.
It was quoted from a character named Meowth, one of the mainstay villains of the show Pokemon. Yes, he is a villain but if ever you’ve watched an episode or two of the long-running anime that started during the year 1997, you’ll more or less know that he’s more of a comic-relief than a serious threat.
The quote itself was deep yet simple enough to be understood by children and heavy enough to be remembered for many years. And as I analyzed the said line, I wondered what will happen if everyone on Earth, especially our leaders, would just learn from this cat and take what he said into heart.
Well, according to Meowth, “Who knows?”, right?
