You know sometimes you go through life, you don't realized that it's crooked. You thought life was normal, and there was nothing seriously wrong with it. Until something happened or someone came along and knocked you out cold of your comfort zone.
And then, wa-lah! Suddenly the air becomes clearer and the light seems brighter. And you noticed, how crooked life was and you wonder how on earth that you went along not noticing the flaws. Or even if you did notice, how was it possible that you crossed the line and let yourself be drifted away for so long?
But then again, I guess that's part of how the universe tries to teach you one thing or two about life. Because human being human, we are naturally narcissistic and wimpish. Too scared of the consequential, or just scared of being decisive. Some went along the conventional, safe way and probably spent most of their life not knowing how greener the grass is on the other side. But some ventured into road less traveled and came out with exceptional stories.
In the end I suppose, it is something very subjective, what is right for me, might not be right for you; and what is best for me, might not be the best for you. But you know you've found something extraordinary, when the winning stories are mutually savoured upon.
