Before this day ends, I want to express how grateful I am for it has really been a blessed one. It’s not perfect- that’s how I loved it! The title says it all. I would not be making this entry longer than my previous posts because all I wanted to do now is appreciate everything that has happened today (Most of them are just too personal to brag about). Now that another week has passed- and yes, thanks be to God for survival, I am more determined to keep going; Especially, that weekend is coming and I would be pleasured to make the most out of it.
I guess I should elaborate the title well for other people to understand what I meant with that tweet of mine few hours ago. Failing is not an option. Courage is. Nobody hasn’t failed. Nobody hasn’t committed a single mistake. I know as a-matter-of-fact that each of us had stories to tell regarding how bad we felt at some point in our lives. We all have those moments wherein if there would be a ‘delete button’ that allows people to forget the bitter past, then we could have pressed it. Also, everyone has experienced a moment unto which we could have wished to freeze the time and preserve that memory forever. Life is a game- it is playful yet sometimes unruly. We always have to play it hard. Otherwise, the next day we’d regret about the chances we just let to pass.

Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela. You are such an epitome of courage against adversity. You showed the world something which doesn’t come from mere mediocrity- by choosing to live a life with honor, with dignity. Thank you for reminding us the value that lies beneath freedom and standing for our own principles which can be justified only if we free ourselves from the tyranny of custom. Your physical presence might be gone, but your great contributions shall live forever. God bless you, great man!
