I know that life is supposed to be some kind of a journey filled with little stops. And I know that it’s supposed to be measured by the little things, like daily achievements and simple joys and whatnot.
But sometimes, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be fighting for.
Yes those little things seem important. But what do you do when you can’t see the big picture?
They say that life is like a journey. But what kind of journey would that be if the destination is simply a question mark?
I don’t think that I’m aimless per se… but it’s like navigating through a long train ride, where there are so many different tracks that looks very similar to one another in front of you. And somehow, the scenery never really changes.
What would you do?
These are the thoughts that came across my mind as the year quietly turns 2016. I don’t have any big resolutions, and I don’t have any big wishes.
I just wish… that if we strive hard enough, we would achieve something, and discover something along the way.
Whatever that is.
Meanwhile… I’ll just continue to write, learn to paint, do my daily job, and escape into the world of fictions… as the soft rhythm of the train engine lulls me to sleep.
