I'm standing in the darkness

That's normal. What's not normal is to let your mind go out of control. And after many other useless thinking episodes, I decided to change. I didn't have one big epiphany or super dramatic moment that forced me to change. Life is not a Hollywood drama. People that I know …

It's a love keeps getting stronger every day

Let's enjoy it while we can

Lost dreams and found dreams
