Courage is;

Courage is; 
It's knowing you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. - Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird

Courage is;
Loving you. Still.
I knew I would be done for at the end of the day with nothing. But I am still here. To see through it no matter what. But again, thank you for trying to help this girl stay so courageous.

But there will come a time in life, whereby this courageous girl will learn to be a coward for once, to fled and seek refuge elsewhere. To seek solace. Where she can find more warmth, where she needs not feel apologetic for every little thing she does, where she needs not feel so scared.

She does needs strength in order to stay courageous, but she's lost for now, she really can't find any strength in her anymore. The strength that she needs... feels so distant away from her.

We can't be courageous all the time, right?

Blessed.

Exactly 14 days since I last blogged, which means it's exactly Day 14 of 2013 too.

The past two weeks has been hectic work-wise. Juggling 5 submissions in a week + EV's major launch is noooooo joke, but I am glad I did it anyway.

I feel that life has literally been at the perfect balance for the most part since 2013. Learning how to let go (of things, of people) was possibly one of the best things that could happen to me. Learning not to pressurize myself too much into perfection has also yielded great results. Learning how to care for others, to give without taking anything back has made me feel amazing The past two weeks has been amazing, and I have no idea what happened and who made this all happened, but I feel there is a need to say thank you. To whoever. To whatever. To whichever. But, thank you.

I have no idea who I am supposed to give thanks to, since there isn't a particular faith I believe in, but hey, let's just assume I am praying to the one/the Maker that makes all these things amazing in my life, alright?

I can't be more grateful regarding my grades (please let them stay consistent so that I may actually expect to see a decent GPA this semester!).
I can't be more grateful for the people in my life who has stayed by me and never left.
I can't be more grateful... for you. Who is actually telling me you'd try. And that is enough. Even if it boils down to nothing (since it might really be so) at the end of the day, I am still grateful that you are/would even want to try. Thank you.

Please let 2013 stay this good.
Or at least half this good.
I'd really love to fill up the "2013 Positivity Jar" I recently got from Art Friend. Teeheez.
