It’s been a sad week for all of us Filipinos. I can’t imagine anyone not affected, whether you experienced Yolanda first hand or not. We all share the same grieve deep down inside and not only that, the war against corruption is still on. I am still hoping that all of these will come to an end. Our country will rise strong and the culprits will be punished, it may not be here but on the second life.
A month ago, I stepped back, lost passion and drive to everything that I used to enjoy. The thoughts of not continuing school arose and, I lost the great ideas that I had. I became stubborn and carefree that I lost track of the time, my opportunities and my responsibilities as a student. Generally, that was a bitter sweet semester for me. But I am still thankful that I passed all my subjects and regain my self confidence.
I know, it wasn’t my best performance. My boyfriend is right, I could have done better than this. We were both guilty because, we know that we have done things that we shouldn’t like, skipping class and not studying well. But the best part of this is that I was able to make my parents proud and happy at the end of the day. That, for me is my greatest accomplishment and greatest prize!
Then, I’ve been thinking if I should continue blogging or not. Wala naman kasing mawawala if I stop, right? Hindi naman ako Tumblr famous or what. I’m just an ordinary blogger and there are a lot of bloggers out there who are better and more talented. But why can’t I, really?
Let’s just say that every time na maiisip ko mag quit, may dadating na tao na magpapa-realize sakin na “wag”. May magme-message sakin kung pano ko sila natulungan in my own little ways of sharing and that I should continue helping those who are clueless. May mas expert naman kesa sakin but, I really appreciate those people who lifts me up. Those people who believes in my ability to speak and reach out through blogging.
Point is, there will always be someone better than us but that should not prevent us from doing what we love. If our intention is to help others, we should not be ashamed of what we can offer, big or small. And, always remember this: Kapag nahihirapan ka na, ibig sabihin lang nun malapit ka na sa tagumpay.
