 SPRING HAS pervaded the air – the sky is blue, the weather is warm, and birds chirp merrily. While the world is beautiful with flowers in full bloom, we ourselves are also at our blooming stages: youth. As we spend our youthful days, we face a myriad of emotions such as joy, excitement, anxiety, and frustration.

   What makes our youth more glorious is love. Love brings us joy and makes our heart palpitate, but sometimes impedes us from thinking straight or performing our usual activities. Through love, we not only experience euphoria and elation but also anger, sorrow, and pain. However, we mature as we go through these natural phases of love. Instead of acting selfishly, we learn to sacrifice for the happiness of others. Mature love raises our self-esteem and enriches our minds. With love, our life is much more beautiful.

   “True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils,” said Baltasar Gracian, a Spanish prose writer and philosopher. Life is in fact an infinite series of random events. While there are days when everything works out fine, there are also days when everything just seems to go against our will. What we should keep in mind in these moments is the fact that we are not alone; our families, friends, and lovers are there for us to share our sorrows as well as our joys.

   The heavy workload piled up on the desk and the endless ticking of the clock may bring us an unceasing fatigue. As the amount of workload increases, stress builds up, and we are sometimes convinced to give up. In one side of our mind, we desperately want to run away from all responsibilities, but on the other side, we fear that we will fall behind others.At times like this, we need enough courage to escape from the hectic world we live in. Tough times come. But instead of surrendering, let us have some time to refresh ourselves. A short break will give us the power to start over afresh.

   We fall, we tumble, and we go through endless trials and tribulations. Yet, we are still young; we have plenty of time to amend our mistakes and get back on our feet when we fall. So smile. Let your youth radiate.
