It’s Not A Competition.

It doesn’t matter who was hurt more,Or how lucky someone is because they suffered less.

Rejection.

After my writing got rejected few times I wanted to quit because I felt that I was going around in circles. BUT there is always something inspirational about this journey & small lessons that make it all worth it.

Road less taken.

I admit life is not perfect and there will be many bumps in the way. There will be many steep mountains to climb and there will be times when the closest people will let you down. You really can’t help but miss some who have chosen to quit on you in the middle of your…
