I took this shot by chance.

And I like it alot. It speaks volumes to me.

It reminds me of life.

How we face crossroads in life and have to choose to go straight, turn left or right or go back. And regardless of the direction we take, the road is rough and bumpy. But it’s always beautiful and sunny at the end of the road.

Life is a perpetual struggle and the people who are happy are the ones who have accepted the bumpiness and managed themselves.

I write about alot of good, positive stuff in my life, but if anyone ever thought my life was a smooth sailing journey, he/she could not be more deluded.

No one’s life is smooth sailing. We are all on the same bumpy ride.

I refuse to be defeated.
