It Is Just A Piece of Paper

maam

Last night, I can’t sleep. I am struggling to focus at work. Thinking about my plans, my future, and everything.

I prayed to God and asked him to give me a sign until tomorrow. Well, I’m not that type of person who believes in “signs”. Somehow, it helps. So today, I started to work and packed my things. And then I suddenly saw on that corner where I put my bible. And when I opened it, I saw this note (knowing that I received this note from my English teacher four (4) years ago). And now, it motivates me —- a lot.

It says, “Use your knowledge well. I believe you can achieve your ambitions. Trust in yourself.” – Ms. April Apple Despi.

I should have believed myself at first and having that confidence to keep moving forward in life. Facing your fears and difficulties in life is just a challenge for yourself.

Sometimes you cannot understand life, it’s so unfair and have so much struggles. The only thing you can do is to pray and believe that God is bigger than your problems. He will not leave you but giving you life experiences, life struggles, and life lessons. And that’s how you understand what life really is.

It may be just a piece of paper, you will never know it will do something good years later.


Have a nice day people! 🌹

Dear Other Self

Dear Other self,

Today, I have confessions to make!

I grew up with full of love and a happy family. But it turns out to be the worst and a living nightmare. Something bad has happened which is the main and only reason why we suffered a lot – my Mom died. I have never wished this to be happened but life was so unfair and giving me this kind of living.

Year 2011 -2015: What is life without your Mom? Very Hard! I cannot bear the pain I have for this past few years and even until now. It is like I am carrying a torch without the burning desires in life. My life was so down. I feel depressed and devastated on that time. Having no confidence in everything I do and my plans in life.

These are the years that I don’t want to remember but part of my life experiences. My dad was so abusive both physically and emotionally. I have never heard him encouraging me in life but dragging me down and makes my heart so broken. I never thought that he has no dreams for us. And sometimes he questioned himself in front of us saying “I sacrificed a lot for you!” “I wished that you have never came out in m life!” He never supported me in my studies – sometimes but not that much to feed my daily needs. And I understand that! I understand our situation. But still I still managed to pass the Entrance examination and finished one year only – not able to continue my studies due to lack of support financially and morally.

Year 2016 -2017: I don’t have a choice but to choose to give up studies. I worked at a young age and facing the reality that life is so freaking hard. I know what exactly the life is. Sweats and blood before money. But I am not that persevere to work hard. I worked different jobs and not able to stay longer. I don’t know what to do? Why is this happening? Why me of all people?

Mid-year 2017: I met new friends and help me to rise up from the ashes. I admit that we have that kind of strong connections and bond. I owe them a lot.

I met people with different stories and it makes me realize that it wasn’t only me who had experienced this kind of life. It motivates me so much. I have no permanent address to live. I stayed one month in my  best friend’s house and help her doing the household chores. After that, I stayed with my cousin but still I couldn’t find a job. So, I decided to leave and left a note saying “I’m living”. It was a hard decision for me but i don’t have guts to stay longer with him, knowing that I cannot help him paying bills  because I don’t have a job.

I became a Kitchen Clerk for five (5) months and leave it. My anxiety attacks me and I couldn’t help it but cry. Lowering down my self-esteem, my confidence went down, and don’t know what to do. Same feeling that I have felt before – depressions. So, I decided to go home and relax for 1 month and half.

Year 2018:  This was my rising point in my life. I became a Content Writer which I suited the most since I really love to write. I started to write when I was a kid. Until when I get older, I used to write poems, essays, stories, script, and other forms of writing. I worked different companies to write them. And published online. I have never imagined this to be happened. It was the nicest feeling that seeing your articles that has published online.

Year 2019: Still working as a Content Writer. I can do everything I want, eating the food I like and so many things. I believed that there are a lot of opportunities to come in my life. I always grateful to God for giving me these life experiences, life lessons, life struggles, and other life-related. I may not have this without him and to the people who supported me morally (and financially). I owe you. I have my To-Do-List and now I’m working on my plans in life and praying that it will work accordingly.

Sometimes I think about my life and future, what is really my purpose in life? So much interesting in life. Just keep doing it until you find it. Well, every successful starts from the bottom.  This will be the part of one of my achievements in life. And I am still rooting and hoping for the best to come.

Think big. Dream big. Believe. Stay Positive.

 

Sincerely, 

Your other self.

WARNING: DON’T FOLLOW YOUR PASSION!

“BRING YOUR PASSION WITH YOU ALL THE TIME BUT DON’T FOLLOW IT. – Mike Rowe” 

I have my passion, you have a passion, and we all have passions in our lives. However, what if your passion will lead you to nothing? What if your passion makes you feel alone – sad – stress – and even depress? Is this a reason why you lost yourself? Why you lost so many opportunities outside? 

I am not saying that having a passion makes you bad but putting some limitations on it. How can I explain this? Well, this is for every people who just started their journey. Of course! You have your passion in reaching your goals in life, you have your passion about your future, you have your passion about what – why – how you should do and to become in your life, you have your passion in everything you do BUT, at the end of the day you just got rejected. Well, I am just sharing this for you to know what’s the reality and this is just my opinion and based on real life (which is my cousin).

Here’s the story:

She is a goal-oriented person. She is smart. She graduated with honor at one of the most prestigious universities here in the Philippines. One of her goals is to study abroad and to have a master’s degree. That’s her passion in life, that’s all she wanted  to become what she really wants to be. She have done everything she needs to do but she got rejected so many times. By that time, she feel sad, heartbroken and depressed. We lost our communication for the longest time. And I don’t know anything what happened to her until we got our communication back through messenger. And she opened to me everything. I just got relieved by that time after she confessed me everything. I’m so happy that she already knows how to share her problems in life and being so open to me. I think we get closer as a cousin. 

Well, this is just a short story because I don’t want to expose everything what we have discussed. I love her and I respect her privacy. I just wanted to share with you on what she (we) have learned in life.

There’s a video clip below, she sent me this earlier. And you should also watch it too.

 

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED? 

Don’t rush things. Do one at a time. You may have lost yourself and opportunities outside if you keep following your goals. It’s okay to be rejected for you to be a better person and to learn in life that not everything you wants, you get. Well, there’s still another way to reach those by taking the “ladders” in life and have learned in every step of the way. Be open!

THAT’S ALL FOR TODAY! THANKS FOR READING!

What’re your thoughts? C’mon! Let’s talk about it.

SIERRA BURGESS IS A LOSER!

“If I were a rose, maybe you’d want me”. 

The one who truly loves you is the one who accepts you the most. Be yourself. Just be you. But the most important thing is, you must accept yourself first.

Anyways, I love that kind of their friendships even though it’s unfair for Veronica’s part. Sierra Burgess was self-centered and only cared about her own well being. She was so wrong for that picture she put out. And yet, despite all of this, far from being a mean girl, Veronica is actually a very kind and generous person. But at some point, I do understand Sierra’s situation. As what I have stated above, accept yourself first before they’ll accept you as being you.

You know what I loved the most? It’s the song “SUNFLOWER” that Sierra wrote it for herself. I love the fact that her voice is so perfectly simple. A simple yet beautiful voice and lyrics are much more relatable. And that’s what I love about this song.

🌻 If you’re listening to this song, To all the sunflowers out there waiting to be picked… One day you will 💖💖

PS. Love is saying, ‘I feel differently’ instead of ‘you’re wrong.

🌻 SUNFLOWER 🌻

Rose goes in glass vaSes
Perfect bodies, perfect faces

They all belong in magazines
Those girls the boys are chasing

Winning all the games they’re playing
They’re always in a different league

Stretching toward the sky like I don’t care
Wishing you could see me standing there

But I’m a sunflower, a little funny
If I were a rose, maybe you’d want me

If I could, I’d change overnight
And turn into something you’d like

But I’m a sunflower, a little funny
If I were a rose, maybe you’d pick me

But I know you don’t have a clue
This sunflower’s waiting for you, waiting for you

But I’m a sunflower, a little funny
And if I were her, maybe you’d pick me

But I know you don’t have a clue
This sunflower waiting for you, waiting for you
