Everything passes, whether you like or not. It's beyond one's control. It's a spontaneous phenomenon that cannot be altered no matter how hard one tries.
These past few days, I try to appreciate all the things that came my way, whether it's favorable to me or not. It is my way of seeing the real earth I'm living in. Being an expat and all that, every day is full of surprises and enables me to learn a thing or two.
The world also offer unlimited opportunities. Grab every chance you have. Enjoy the moments, grab a camera, write a diary, pen a poem. Relive that time until you die.

a passing moment
Being a photo-hobbyist, before I used to regret not capturing "that moment" with my camera. It would been a great shot, I often thought. But now, it's making me more appreciative of these faster-than-a-wink-of-an-eye real-life slideshows. Ah, sometimes you just have to sit back, relax with a beer or two and with the camera on the ground (few meters away from you).
Appreciate what you have now. What's around you. And be ready to be surprised by upcoming moments. Be it a good or not-so-good one.
Just be thankful that you are still alive.
