Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

the road less traveled  §

It’s a reflecting-day. I always forget about my collections of notes and thoughts. That’s why I have to keep a PDA. Because my soul’s in there somewhere, like other people have in diaries.

There are a lot of choices and choosings in the air. I have had a good day today. A nice day. Things have happened, and people have made me feel respected, and I have again felt a great deal of respect for myself. I feel a little more open, a little less trapped, a little less trampled. I spoke to my sisters, who are all capable of making my day. I got some voice mail from friends. I realized that even though things have been in a low place, they’re looking up.

Way up.

Once again today, I realize that I’m larger than any context that tries to hold me. I feel as though I can’t help but succeed, in spite of myself and everything else, and regardless of what others try to think or expect about me. The next decade is going to be amazing for me. Just amazing. And at the end of it all, I’ll have something lovely and warming to look back on.

Life, in spite of everything, is pretty damn good.
