I am standing here in a quiet corner, during a busy lunch hour, observing and feeling the pulse of the city, watching the world go by.

In the near distance, you can espy a pool of office workers scurrying to a nearby food center.

Life can be a song, if you will it to be.

But where did I read the line that life can be mundane one moment, and yet pulsates with music and proclamations, rage and moral pretensions next?

Ever so often, just when you are thinking that you are treading on cloud nine, reality bites:

Sure, you don’t simply throw your life away for other people.

It’s not worth it.

You come first, so you gotta do what’s right for yourself – just you and yourself alone.

That’s smart.

Saying “no” can be a rejection for some people you really care about.

So can we afford to hurt them?

In life, you win some and lose some.

Life rollercoasts in a strange way, down the fast lane, waiting for no one.

Life gonna pass you by unless you take the initiative to make the first stop

and look around in wonderment once in a while.

It’s therapeutic to embrace the simple pleasures such as savoring the moment

and watch people and their expressions.

Observe the frowns and smiles, catch the hustle and bustle of people doing their chores.

Take a deep breath and ensure that you are not going to miss the life’s amazing goodies.

The choice is entirely yours.
