Never Lose Sight of the Horizon

Rina Macasaet


What's written in the stars can always change.

Look up, make every day happen.
In good ways, better than not.
A smile or a kind word.

Don’t give up.
What’s written in the stars can always change.
Give yourself an achievable goal.

So that you have something to look forward to everyday.
Be reasonable with life as you would be reasonable with yourself.
Acceptance does not mean defeat.

Like the weather, life shifts daily in unexpected directions.
Your horizon is there to keep you focused.
When your vision blurs, all you have to do is blink.

And you’ll see how different your horizon can be when you take a second look.
