Brave New World

Hansel said to Gretel,

"Let us drop these breadcrumbs...
so that together we find our way home.

Because losing our way would be the most cruel thing"

Time comes where life goes off course. In this frantic moment, you must choose your direction.
If you let the chance to choose be blown away by the wind, it will be adverse and losing your way on a journey is unfortunate. But, losing your reason for the journey... is a fate more cruel. In the midst of journey, sometimes we travelled alone, sometimes, there were others who took the wheel. Will you fight to stay on track? Will others tell you who you are? Or will you label yourself? Will you be eerie by your choice? Or will you embrace your new path? Each brave morning you choose to move forward or simply give up.

Time comes where life goes off course. In this frantic moment, you must choose who you are.
There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. If you lose yourself, you have two choices: find the person you used to be... or lose that person completely. Will you let down your defences, and find solace in someone unexpected? Will you reach out? Will you face your greatest fear bravely? And move forward with faith. Or will you succumb to the darkness in your soul?

Sometimes, you have to step outside of the person you've been. And remember the person you were meant to be.
The person you wanted to be. The person you are.

Once in a while, people push onto something better. Something found just beyond the pain of going it alone. And just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in. Somewhat over the perseverance of a dream. Because, it's only when you’re tested that you truly discover who you are and it's only when you're tested that you discover who you can be. The person you want to be does exist; somewhere on the other side of hard work, faith and belief.
