Perhaps grief is just a smile viewed from the wrong perspective.

"The time is long gone when I could frighten you with a burning wardrobe and force you to make repayment for your crimes. But I wish I could, Tom…. I wish I could…."

Sometimes it is so, so hard to be the bigger person.
Sometimes, many times, very often, I fail.
But in the end it is the only way.
Love is the only way to defeat hate.

Begin Again

I promised you I would never leave you. And I will keep that promise no matter what. But here's an idea: what if we run away together? If only we could! Let's bring Mamu and Papu and Auntie Lan. Let's begin again in a place where no one knows us. Let's live in a place with fountains and trains and planes and cranes. No demons or ghosts. A clean slate. A new road. What do you think, Bads?

The cold never bothered me anyway.

Conceal. Don't feel.

Let it go.

I choose.

Life, like this selfie, rarely turns out exactly the way we want it to, but that's no reason not to smile. Some days are more difficult than others but there's always a new day up ahead. Tonight, I choose to be thankful. Tonight, I choose to smile.

Will storms always feel like this?
A storm outside
A storm inside
Always waiting for the disaster

Whenever I'm depressed, I Google Chris Hemsworth.
