Whenever I look at the gigantic ships parked peacefully at the harbor, I can't help but let my mind wander: where are these ships from, what journey have they gone through, where are they going to next, etc...They remind me of what my dad told me when I was young: "life is like the a ship on the ocean. There will be days with blue skies and beautiful sunshine, there will also be days with lightning and thunderstorms. If the ship keeps sailing, eventually it will arrive at the destination". After more than 10 years living away from home, all by myself, now I understand completely what he said and feel what he felt.
Life is never meant to be easy, it's meant to be lived. Sometimes it's tough, other times it's good. With every obstacles I've gone through, I learned my lessons to make me become stronger and stronger every day. There were times when I was so frustrated with the situation, I kept asking myself a question that has no answer: "Why are there so many troubles that I need to deal with?". But if God was to ask me "Would you want to be a girl who always depends on other people, and has no survival instinct?", the answer would always be No.
I'd love to live my life like a ship on the sea. A ship that faces many storms on the ocean, but still bravely sails through, never giving up. A ship that knows how to enjoy its journey and appreciates every beautiful day it has. Then, I imagined myself as a captain on board.
Once arrived at the destination, I would totally change my captain's uniform into this crop-top, floral midi skirt, put on my favorite pair of stilettos and start dancing.
