    'Watched the snow fall for most of the night, each flake was glistened by the moonlight, shining with life as it fell from the dark sky. Each flake fell with elegance, and landed on the ground delicately and perfectly in place, like it had a purpose. It was the most beautiful sight. It reminded me of life, that each experience has a purpose, we fall and pick ourselves up to continue our journey and how beautiful and imperfect we truly are.'
