My journey has never been easy. For years, It felt like I was mindlessly walking on a dark misty road, with a heart full of doubt and hopelessness. Hard to believe that a person like me has so much self-doubt. I was afraid of failure, too. Big dreams, I almost abandoned because of fear. Us, people, are naturally allergic to negatives that might occur in our lives. Me, I f hated them, too; until I was told a very valuable lesson in life. How do you know how good days are like if you have never had bad days? One cannot identify happiness without knowing sadness. If you haven’t failed your whole life, you wouldn’t know the feeling of sweet success. White cannot exist without black as to positive cannot exist without negative. And so I’ve learned to conquer the bad and celebrate all the good. Keeping in mind that everything in life happens the way the universe orchestrates it. The universe really does work in mysterious ways. I swear, I gave up so many times and for some reason no matter how risky and impossible the road may seem, I needed to continue walking. I’ve always been one to question my purpose and now its never been more clear. Maraming Salamat po Gawad Urian.
