From where I stand. #aprillove2015

From where I stand today, I see that I still want perfection.  I still long to be better and more – than what, I do not know.  Even though I was born in China and have stood at the center of the world at Cape Three Points, Ghana, I still feel I’ve been nowhere. The lack I feel is endless.  I recognize that. I accept them.  They are just feelings. They are not me.  I am whole as is.  I am where I’m suppose to be. Here. Now.

what I know now


I know that now.  Had I recognize that years ago, what would I tell my younger self?  I don’t know and if I did, would I believe myself?  So from where I am standing or sitting today, it is best to get up and get on with life.  If I had known better, I know I would have done better. If I could, I would, wouldn’t you?

Thank you again to Susannah Conway and Kat McNally for your prompts.


About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    Carpe Diem, Lily.

  2. I know the feeling of lack you describe so well, Lily. It’s deceiving and I think you are so wise for just letting it be what it is i.e. just a feeling. x
