Well, this is something that has been learnt
some time ago. But reading it from someone
else's blog just enforced the idea of it.
But, Life is never a easy lesson.
You may know all the theory about it,
but it's not that easy to master the practical.
Just a reminder to all, and me too.
Be control of your own life.
Happiness is a choice of your own,
not something to be given by someone else.
Start counting your blessings now,
you'll be amazed how much it can add up to.
