Wednesdays with Buena: Life-long Learner

Yes, I’d still choose to think of it that way – I’m learning.

Though I dropped down to my knees and cried, I stood up.

Though I failed a lot and disapproving faces surrounded me, I still tried.

Though many times I felt like dying, I chose to face the new day.

Details of me during the previous months:

I went out of career, then felt so left out, and mused about going back,

I decided to hands-on my children, then screamed at the top of my lungs for acceptance to come, for it’s just so hard,

I started blogging, then turned off from my commitments every time.

Still, at the end of my rope, I see myself – hanging!

There is no way to give up on anything. Even though I have not made my steps sure and the road is full of blocks to even see a finish line- I shall continue.

I know what matters. I’ve been learning. Bits and pieces. But when one day comes I can gather all together, I think I’ll have a full circle.

I should continue. It’s my choice.

What’s your choice?



Would you give up on what you lately decided on, because it seems like it just wouldn’t work?

Would you stop from that project you started, because it seems you are going against currents?

Would you follow as the world dictates, and not as you wanted it?

It is your choice.

But remember- it is about you.
