Hidden treasures

Strange what you will find in life when you start searching for hidden treasures.

You might be the guy or girl who walks around with their eyes wide shut, with their mouths wide open, with their hearts locked up in a cage and always quick to complain about how crappy their lives are, not realising that at the end of the day, it's actually your choice if your life is good or bad.

You choose if you want to buy into sorrow, into hurt, into loneliness. You get to choose if you keep holding on to the past or to let go and change the way you feel about it. You get to choose whether or not you smile when you wake up in the morning, whether or not you cry when you look in the mirror, whether or not you have a good day or a bad one, it's your choice to make!!

But instead you hold on to something you had and lost, something you don't want back, but still find comfort with it, instead of moving on, instead of letting go. You still behave exactly the same as you did in the past, coloring your hair or wearing your glasses, or painting your nails black, and coming up with a lame excuse for doing it, but actually deep down you know why you did it, because you are holding on to the past!

Open your eyes, let loose your heart, discover the greatest hidden treasure there is in the world, and that is you!! and don't go looking for it at the bottom of a whisky bottle...

You'd be surprised at how much you can surprise yourself!
