Bittersweet life


"It's just how life is. It can't be all pretty and perfect all the time. There's always the ups and downs. That's the harsh truth of life, in my opinion. But no matter what, you'll be okay in the end. You just have to be strong enough to get through whatever life throws at you." ~ the notebook doodles

How apt.

When life throws you lemons, you figure out to turn them into lemonade instead. You learn by going through hardships, tears and failures. It ain't always pretty. Nothing, nothing is picture perfect. If it is, it's perhaps just a lie. I think all of us have learnt a lot these past couple of days. Fragility, gratitude, sadness, compassion, generosity, strength.. Most of us would have a new respect and admiration for Japan and its people. They are probably pulling themselves together faster than we can help. This morning, I spent time writing an email to my colleagues asking them to help our fellow colleague (my closest gf)'s brother who lives (used to) in Sendai. The response was amazing.

Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Hang tight. Stay strong. The rest of the world is with you.
