once upon an august

I came to a random realization of myself.
I seldom regret or unchoose the people I have chosen in life.
Maybe I wish I could sometimes.
Loyalty can work for or against you.
But the heart almost has a mind of its own.
And sometimes it is determined to hope and hold on.

On a rabbit's trail: My colleagues and I just had another invigorating discussion about the well-made wonder that is Secret.
Please go watch it.

On another sidetrack: I know it's old, but I like the cartoon Anastasia SO MUCH.
I'm gonna find some time to rewatch it.
After I watch Pan's Labyrinth. :P
Anyway, here's one of my old favourites from there.
This was when Anya finally decided to embark on her journey to find her family.


Heart, don't fail me now!
Courage, don't desert me!
Don't turn back now that we're here
People always say
Life is full of choices
No one ever mentions fear!
Or how a road can seem so long
How the world can seem so vast
Courage see me through
Heart I'm trusting you
On this the past

Somewhere down this road
I know someone's waiting
Years of dreams just can't be wrong
Arms will open wide
I'll be safe and wanted
Fin'lly home where I belong
Well, starting here, my life begins
Starting now, I'm learning fast
Courage see me through
Heart I'm trusting you
On this the past

Heart don't fail me now!
Courage don't desert me!

Home, Love, Family
There was once a time
I must have had them too
Home, Love, Family
I will never be complete
Until I find you...

One step at a time,
One hope, then another
Who knows where this road may go
Back to who I was
On to find my future,
Things my heart still needs to know
Yes, let this be a sign!
Let this road be mine!
Let it lead me to my past
Courage see me through
Heart I'm trusting you
To bring me home...
At last!
At last!
Courage see me through
Heart I'm trusting you


Sometimes we need to revisit our past to go further into our future.

Ha ha! This is funny, recently this song has been on my mind. I like the show too. Oh, glad to hear about the lesser side-effect that your dad is facing. Will keep him in prayers!
