The journey of life may be challenging, exhilarating, or simply frustrating. But, that's the beauty of it. Those are the flavors that make each day meaningful and unforgettable.
I remember as a child, I would sit on the windowsill trying to grasp why do people need to experience pains and sorrows. Why not just happiness? I found the answers several years ago. Pain then became my constant companion. But, at the end of the tunnel, I found the light of hope.
Now, I understand more why pain is part of life. Getting hurt makes you understand the reason for life. I understand why I needed to taste the bitterness of disappointments. That was for me to brace myself for anything that may happen in the future.
Year 2007 when I made a life changing decision. I think from that on, I learned everything that I needed to comprehend about life. I won’t be enumerating them since until now, I am still in the process of putting them into actions. But, my point is, the second life that I have become more meaningful because of that crossroads.
Though the moments of sorrows, disappointments, grief’s and regrets continue to hound me even after successfully weathering the odds, the strength and faith I have gained from that experience keep me as a survivor.
Now, I have just made another major decision. What makes this different from before? I am armed with the knowledge that whatever happens, I would survive in one piece. I know that deep in my heart, I have committed myself into service and purged myself into offering the best of me. I know that with the rhythm of life, something better and brighter is waiting for me in the future. After all, Victor Marie Hugo said, "hope is the only word written in the brows of every man". With that, I keep my fingers crossed.
