Puzzled Mind

“As time goes on, you'll understand. What lasts, lasts; what doesn't, doesn't. Time solves most things. And what time can't solve, you have to solve yourself.”

― Haruki Murakami

Power of a Smile

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.”

“Those who have hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now – unless you hold on to the pain through resentment.. Your past is past, nothing will change it.. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness… For your own sake, learn from it and then let it go.”

My 29th Birthday

Being 29 isn't so bad but surprise parties are (even if they don't call it that, hence the cake above).
I am truly loved and accepted by all of my friends & family.
I am grateful to have you all in my life.
My days and nights pass by like moving clouds when I'm surrounded by y'all.
So in case I don't say it enough. . . thank you.
