The meaning of life

Life with Joy

by Iza Deleanu

I choose to live even if I'm scared of the unknown. I went through a lot, but compared with others I had a beautiful life.

My choice in life is to let go of the fear and jump into the unknown.

Last summer Covid or not, I tasted life to the fullest. I got so lucky to be free and choose how I want to spent my short summer.

I couldn't stay locked in my apartment anymore, so I decided to go and find my oasis.

God sent me guardian angels responsible for my well-being. So, here I am paddling like a duck in a magical kingdom an amazing lake that made me feel normal.

I love to swim in any type of glimpse of water. It doesn't even have to be too deep; I can swim in thirty centimeters of water. I guess I'm lucky because I'm not very tall, so I came up with special techniques of
swimming in any circumstances.

Last year I realized that this Covid it's a test of endurance. I realized that I don't need a fancy resort to be happy, a stroll in the numerous ravines and meadows that my city has can bring me back the joy of living.

I re-learn that I can live with less and still be me, the crazy and funny person that my parents raised a couple of decades ago.

I choose to be happy and explore the world around me as a tribute to my dad and grandparents that passed away.

I chose to continue their legacy: trust God and search for his blessing in everything I do.

I chose you my life with the bad, the good, and the ugly. I choose you, and I will not change my choice, no matter what Mr. Devil throws in my way as a sweet temptation.

I have received this life and fate for a reason, so it's time to pick up my cross and move on accompanied by Ms. Joy and Ms. Water. I will walk under the tree of life under the closer supervision of Nadejda (Hope), Viara (Faith), and Liubov (Love).
