A wish upon a star

Monday, August 19, 2013

Tired from the long hours of staring at my laptop, trying to break the levels of candy crush, I look out of the window at the dark sky and wonder how long has it been since the last time I gazed in awe at the clear night sky full of bright, shining stars.

In my vast childhood memories, I remember myself walking along the beach with people I don't really know. The were no electricity around us and when I held my head up and looked at the sky, that was the only time in my life I've ever felt this amazed. There were hundreds, maybe thousands of stars.

When I was young, I used to wish upon the stars before I went to bed whenever I had problems. Today, as I looked at the sky, there isn't a single star to be seen. It's not like I'm still doing this wishing-upon-a-star thing but if I've a chance to make a wish, there's one I would wished for. 

I wish I was never a selfish coward.

There were so many things in life that could have taken a better turn if I was brave enough to face my difficulties and mistakes. If only I could see the opportunities and not care a single thing about what others might think. There were times when I stayed awake through the wee hours of the morning, wondering of the possibilities if I had done the opposite. Would I be happier so?

But then, I was a coward. I never tried to step out of my comfort zone.

Whatever it were, they were in the past. I believe it is fate that has brought me to where I am today as I could not walk two different paths at the same time.

Tonight, I wish I'll be brave enough to take the first step before it's too late again.
