Pages of My Life- The Journey to the World of the Doctor of Jurisprudence

Time is an emblem that signifies the ending and the beginning of each leaf of life. As I turn each page, I never failed to get enthralled with the beauty that life encompasses. I always believe that the splendour of life is hidden in the treasury trove of heart where the trials, trepidations, feats, happiness and successes we have experienced are all kept.

When I was young, my joys were simple. Paper dolls and candies made me think that I was living in the world of fantasy. Then I started weaving dreams. Some of them, I have successfully reached but, majority of them, I have not fulfilled yet.

Two years ago, I thought that my purpose in life was done. My mission was accomplished, and my fate was to finally bid goodbye. I would not say that I was ready. I was devastated and found myself utterly lost with the cruelty bestowed upon me.

The road toward healing was long and arduous. My life had a great avalanche and my world totally crumbled. I blamed nothing but myself for failing to realize the dreams I have written in the stars. They were waiting to be unleashed but I was so hesitant to even dare in trying.

Life however, was full of surprises with its paradoxical complexities. It was a painful yet a beautiful realization for me that the beginning of life was not always where I thought it to be. Life was more than that.

I finally found the courage to stand and face reality with nothing but confidence in my heart. I made it. That leaf of my life was gone and I was ready to start anew.

I lost once but I gained a lot- love, strength and the faith to try again.

When I was at the middle of taking the Qualifying Test for College of Law in the University of Batangas last Saturday, I had so many realizations. But more than anything, I have felt that finally. I was ready to turn another page of my life.

During the interview, swirling emotions overwhelmed me. Thanks to the people who supported and believed in me. I was no longer the teacher who was terrified to try something new. As I stepped on the threshold of the University of Batangas to take up Doctor of Jurisprudence, I knew that chasing my star is within my grasp.

Yes, it would not be easy. However, if I learned to stand once full of scars of the past but with chin lifted then I could do it all over again.

This is a fraction of who am I. The ‘I’ is often ignored because ever since I could remember ‘we’ and ‘they’ hold more responsibilities since they denote more number of people involved.
