Life is all about Failure
Hi All! 
I do hope that all goes well with you. 
As few of you may already be aware, things haven't been looking very well for me and with so many losses that I have come across in my life, both friends and family members in the past 2 years, It's kinda left me with a bitter impression. Apart from that, I made a goal to finish my art book, but so far, there has been no update yet; and besides, there's still a lot of backlogs and request to clear that have yet been touched.
In simple words, everything seems to be falling apart with all the problems going on in life. 
Then, I remember what my friend used to tell me when I was in college. 
"Problems are there to make you better, not bitter"
It's such a simple sentence, but when I gave a thought of it, it kinda gave some warm feelings in my heart. At that very moment, I sat down on my chair, looking at the window and thought of myself, where have I been all this time?
I was so scared that all these problem will eventual

I want to stand in the ocean and feel the water on my skin, standing with the water covering my shoulders so I can feel the saltwater kissing my neck. I want the sensation of being surrounded with that warm salty satin. Feeling weightless as the pain lifts from my joints, I bob up and down slightly as the waves roll through me. The smell of the fresh air wakes my soul. I want to feel alive-I want to BE alive. I long for the sound of the water gently falling into the sand with the birds strategizing in the background. Everywhere you look are the most beautiful colors. It's as if God himself created the purest paints and saved them for this beautiful place. He didn't choose His canvas lightly though. He carefully explored the Heavens and then set His eyes on Earth. But the journey didn't end there. He inspected every place, on land and in the sea. Looking in every corner until he layed His fingers on this very spot. The perfect marriage between the land and his sea. He was content. This was it. He carefully took out his colors and favorite brushes and immediately got to work. The greens were the greenest, the leaves touched the sky. He psinted tall beautiful trees until he reached perfection. The blues were the bluest, the sea and the sky. These were neverending as they hugged the earth. He sprinkled every color here and there, putting the flowers where the flowers should be and hanging the fruit from those beautiful trees. He painted the sun, saving that for the end. He carefully chose the perfect combination so that each night, before the sun was baptized, the sky around it drank from it and was filled with it. Working harmoniously, adjusting it's colors to better suit that magnificent sun.

I want to go there.
