The Gift of Life

I just wrote this in my journal after watching Studio Ghibli - Spirited Away, I was about to just keep it for myself. But then I realized that perhaps someone needs to read this, I hope this writing could make you re-think about your life. Whoever you are, and whatever struggle you are in, don't give up. If no one supports you, mocks you or looks you down, just remember that I am here: a stranger who believes that you will get through it, you will be okay. Have some faith and trust in yourself. Don't push yourself too hard and keep loving yourself.

Isn't it beautiful that we are granted with the best gift we could ever get called "life"? Isn't it beautiful that each one of us has a different childhood and background? Isn't it beautiful how life put you in unexpected places and situations, yet never fails to leave a lesson and message behind it? Isn't it beautiful that "to live" alone is the biggest blessing we forgot?

When I think about my life so far, how every moment of happiness, sadness, fear, or joy has shaped us into who we are today. Life is beautiful, isn't it? How each one of us has a different purpose and role yet we only yearns for one thing: love. To live is to love. Whether it is to love your significant others, your parents, your brothers, your sisters, your friends, the strangers that you just met, and the most important of all, to love yourself.

To live is to give a piece of you to make others happy, to shed some light in the darkness of their life To live is to let others believe that they deserve to live a beautiful life. To live is to share, even if it's all you have, to those who are in need. To live is to appreciate, to forgive, to heal the broken ones. To live is to understand that each one of us is struggling in our way, that each one of us worthy of the blessings that life offers.

To live is to show and embrace every little piece of love that God puts in our hearts, in every drop of water, in the sparks of light, in the ray of sunshine, in the warmth of day, in the coldest of night, in the smiles of those who are heartbroken, in the tears of those who long for happiness, in every corner of this earth, in the pureness and sincerity of animals, in every acts of kindness that comes from a sincere hearts.

The more we get older, the more we forgot how to live a life. When I look back at my childhood, I remember how I was still innocence of what life is. I live my life as if it will never end, I live my life as if I have always a "tomorrow". When I was a kid, I never thought that I will grow into a bigger and taller shape. I never thought that I will ever grow old. I never thought that I, too, will eventually die someday. I never even imagined that I will grow until today, leaving my childhood behind.

When I look back at my childhood, I still remember how I always observe other people and wonder how did they live their life before. Even until now, every time I stare into people's souls, I always wonder: what kind of childhood they had, what kind of environment they were raised in, what kind of people are dear in their life. I love to just sit in a cafe or bus while wondering how they live their life as they walk past by.

Each one of us knows that we only have one chance to live. One may live it by doing everything that they want to do so that they'll not regret one day. One may live it by doing its best today in hope that they will have a brighter future. One may live it by spending their time with their loved ones because they know that perhaps "tomorrow" will never come again. One may live it like there would never be an end. Each one of us has a different way to live a life as we interpret the meaning of life differently.

But in the end, deep down in our hearts, the reason why we live in a way that we believe in is that
we know that we will never experience the same life twice.
