Time is my companion. I learned that taking things a step at a time helps me to exhale the negativity within me, and inhale the optimism around me. I had this moment where I was all smiles but was actually crying inside, so connected to the crowded world but was actually disconnected from the inside.

I was looking to find a way out of that desolation and little by little I knew I shouldn’t force the good things to happen. I was looking and desperate for it. But the more I look, the less I was able to find it. And so, I took a step back, back to where I started, gathered my senses and moved on. I’ve learned that, rather than focus on finding, I should focus on improving. And it is a blissful feeling. I am alone but I have so much in me.
