There Comes A Time..

When life gives you the gift of an opportunity.. 
Of a new path, a new feeling, a new emotion.. Simply a new beginning.

There comes a time when you realize that what you wanted, is not necessarily what you needed or what was going to make you happy.

 True, happiness should always come from within, it's - like many say - a personal decision. However, we cannot forget that as simple mortals, our feelings play an important role on each step we seem to take.

Each new adventure brings the exhilarating feeling of the unknown, the adrenaline rush that can only be compared to a non-stop roller coaster; one that makes your heart skip a beat and your breath come to a sudden halt.

There comes a single moment when on your own, you are faced with your personal demons. With your fears, your regrets.. 
     ..But also, with your true desires, your new wishes, your dreams and goals. The new images that seem to paint a happier and better version of the future, the ones that seem to put a smile on your face by simply imagining it.

Each time you turn a new page on the book of life, you have this amazing chance of filling its lines with great things! Yet, sometimes we seem to hesitate before exploring the obvious.. Maybe it's simple human nature to swim against the current just to prove a point. Granted, you have to be really hard-headed, but it happens.

Thankfully, something ALWAYS happens to open your eyes. We might fight it at the beginning, we might try to ignore it, but in your heart.. you just know.

There comes a time when you are faced with the answer to all your prayers. The only one question that remains is: are you ready to make the change and find your true happiness when that chance comes knocking at your door ?
