Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that’s been our unifying cry, “More light.” - Sunlight, Torchlight, Candlelight, Neon, incandescent lights, that banish the darkness from our caves to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerator, Big floods for the night games at Cricket stadia, Little tiny flashlights for those books we read under the covers when we’re supposed to be asleep.
Light is more than watts and foot-candles. Light is metaphor. Light is knowledge, light is life, light is light.
Throughout years I have become what I am. I would like to think that what I am is not just about what I am now, but what I have stabilized to be. But, it is not always like that. I am a constantly changing being. Everyday I surprise myself with things I say and do. Everytime I seek to understand if there has always been something I hid deep down inside and something is always bound to push it out of me.
We shape our own perception of happiness. We remember our sense of happiness based on moments that stand out amidst the chaos in our everyday life. Whether it’s in the shoes we wear or the earth we walk on (or the shoes we wear vs. what shoes other people wear), we can always say “I am happy, just because”.
Am I really happy??

"What is life but the angle of vision? A man is measured by the angle at which he looks at objects. What is life but what a man is thinking of all day? This is his fate and his employer. Knowing is the measure of the man. By how much we know, so we are."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A thought can be an extremely powerful presence in one's life; something that molds us into who we are (or think we are) as well as the kind of life we pursue. However, a thought can also be transient; a momentary idea or reaction to something that is easily replaced by something else.
We can only think one thing at a time, and unless we are sleeping, we are always thinking something. This is what gets us in trouble, but at the same time, it is also what gets us out of trouble.
Our mind is never blank - we are always thinking something. From the moment we open our eyes, we begin to think. But what are we thinking? When we think negative thoughts we will speak in a negative tone. Infact we will speak what we think. Our thoughts can change our life for the better.
We will produce what we are thinking about. So, think nice!
I think life is unfair to some people, alright to others, and great to some. There are some great people I know that just cannot get a break in life, and just keep getting hit with one thing after the other, and then there are those people that are basically sociopaths, that just keep getting things handed to them on a silver platter, and don't have to struggle for things.
There are murderers who's family and friends stick by them, even when they are in jail, and have maybe even confessed, and then there are good people who just don't really have anyone.
