The most beautiful things in life are also the most fragile. Serenity or “Hinahon” in Tagalog is one of my most treasured gifts. It’s not everyday that I receive it, but when I do, I make sure to be grateful for it and hope that it will be given more often. Most times, I receive it from the universe. Sometimes, I give it to myself — though not easily. Writing and painting beautiful things help me reach this state of mind.
