Fuzzy Colorful Circles

Ever since I started wearing eyeglasses, I get pass temporarily at all the blurs to get a clearer sight of what was happening around me. I once feared of leaving the house alone without wearing any of my eye gears and that because I haven’t undergone any eye correction procedures yet. Having a myopia is a serious case from the fact that it makes you feel that you are close to blindness and that I always have to get nearer at all the things that I really need to understand. It feels like you’re asked to get closer at life and confront it from all the fuzz it brings you everyday. 
Earlier yesterday, I tried removing my eyeglasses while riding as a passenger and he was driving. My eyes were again in awe seeing these small colorful circles like a bokeh effect in photography from these beams of light everywhere.

I had to become more aware of every situation around me. I needed to control my emotions, from being too euphoric to just staying calm. I had to become the other version of me- a side of myself I have been looking for a long time. I had to bend, I had to break, all I can manage is myself.

A new year is more than just a restart, not a new season to expect for the best things from it rather. Instead of waiting for the days to be better, I chose to embrace situations at my present more calmly and with g…
