Giving Up is NOT an option
![image](https://img.esteem.ws/ocwqy9v1vg.jpg)

I ate a dinner at a semi-affordable restuarant with @emaferice, baby Zac, Renz and Cheng-Cheng the other day.

Renz is Fema's (a.k.a. @emaferice's) little cousin, and Cheng-Cheng is a cousin of Renz on his father's side.

Cheng has always helped Fema, and Fema has always helped Cheng - I am happy to see their ability to do good things for one another.

<hr>

My shirt says that giving up is not an option, and in most cases that is true, but I have a habit of surrending to life after doing all I could do.

The ironic thing is, that after each surrender, the events in my life always fell into place, and my dreams always came true. I find that refreshing.

<hr>

In most cases, giving up is not an option, but sometimes when nothing can be done to fix a situation, it is best to surrender to life.
