My life is not perfect but I know what I need to do make it better.

There are things in life that I can’t control but there are also things that are so easy to get or change if I have the will to make them happen.

Those things I’ve learned from the past really taught me how to appreciate things even the very slight ones.

I keep on telling myself that things happen for a reason.

I would never be able to get all the things I have now if it’s not because of my dedication and hard work.

I would never be able to acquire these things if it’s not because of God’s assistance.
I have the privilege to buy those things I want and get what I need the most.

Things are temporary but God is smart enough to give things to his people while they are still living in this temporary world.

Sure, a wise man can acquire, gather and create a lot of things but still limited. Only God has the power to create every single thing limitless.

I am lucky enough to be called the son of God.

I may not have all the credentials that other people have, may not have enough knowledge to earn more, may not have the strength to build new possessions,.

But I am so proud to say that I am inside the true Church of Christ and I can shout to the word that I am a proud member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo!

This is one of my few personal writings about what is going on with my life and I decided to share it with you. I have no one else to share my grief, happiness or simply my thoughts about everything, so I think putting them into words would be the best preference for me to do.

My Hope to the Right Path

I just want to share how happy I am to have my baby with me after all these years. She just got a simple gift for herself, a new cellphone. Despite of everything that is happening to me, I just realize how lucky I am of knowing her and sharing what I have in this world. I would never have these things I have right now if it wasn’t because of her. I would never make this far it was not support, understanding and love. And I think it’s time for me to support her of whatever it is she wanted to do or have with her money for as long as it for the good as what she always does to me. She is the most amazing and loving person I have ever known.

Despite of my success, I’m always thinking that there’s still something missing: something happening which I know to myself that’s not right. Doing my job as a call center representative is a dream come true, but I can’t seem to stomach the graveyard shift anymore. The account seems to have a lot of scope of support and I can’t seem to breathe at all because of the busy queue. I’m always thinking about quitting and switching career that I always wanted to have, which is to become a home-based call center agent or an online freelancer. I guess I am just so eager to experience new things.

MY HOPE to the Right Path of LIFE

My plan is still hanging and it’s not final yet. But for the mean time, I will do my best to take good care of myself in order to continue with what I have right now which I do believe God has given me. I look forward to have a nice profession so I could be happy meeting our needs with the fact that I don’t have yet all the things that a man could always desire to have in this world. God only knows what’s best for me and for whatever it is that He is going to provide, I will accept it wholeheartedly. I will take the risks just to fulfill my dreams without forgetting His teachings. My only hope is for Him to always guide to the right path.

or the past few months, there’s a lot of things had happened to the life of a young man named *Jay – new career, new relationship, and new challenges of being a successful independent. He just loves to share a few things of his remarkable stories out of many because he knows it would have been very long and might be tedious. But as far as I know, every story is definitely worth reading for. Here’s what he just shared:

Revealed. Jay is only 20, but he’s completely reliable to himself – not dependent to his parents or anyone else to provide his needs and wants. He is a quiet person, a man with a few words. You can only hear him speak at least 50 words a day. It’s seldom for you see him laugh but he’s not that serious either. He is very helpful and willing to take extra miles for someone in need. He didn’t experience to be treated like a bad guy because he knows how to consider other people’s feelings and treat them well.

Jay

Way back last year, Jay was so privileged to have a job with reasonable pay in one of the prominent companies in his country. Although he lives on his own already, he was still able to divide his blessings with his parents from the company he worked with. He promised his parents to take good care of them for the best of his ability given that they’re not that strong anymore to make end meets. He dreamed to finish mending their very old home that hasn’t been done for many years. He dreamed to have his very first computer to widen his knowledge and he dreamed to be a good provider in his relationship with his loved one. He was a very happy and blissful young boy and, in fact, a dreamer until something happened to him that has made his whole life changed.

Jay lost his job for the very first time in his life. He was accused for something that he didn’t intentionally do. For his entire career, this is the first time he has made an honest mistake that made his everything bring to an end. He explained himself but no one seemed to believe, no one even understood. He told nothing but only the truth. His heart was broken. His dreams and plans came to nothing. Everything that he has was gone and that brought his world to an end.

Beams of hope. After what happened, Jay didn’t surrender. He didn’t stop believing himself that what he did is RIGHT. Even once, the words giving up never ever came to his mind. He can’t seem to find someone on earth to trust and to share his anguish with but only God and his diary. His relationship suffered, he was running out of money, he has no choice but to go home and humbly ask for his parents help that had nothing much to offer because they’re old. Nevertheless, his life didn’t stop there. He held on tightly to those things he knows and believes. He faithfully held on tight to God’s words and promises that He will never abandon him especially to his most difficult times. He is very faithful, strong and very determined to have his happy life back, to make things to be connected again, to reach the highest star, to continue dreaming and let these dreams come true.

Now, 23 year-old Jay is working in a very prestigious company in the world. He promised himself that he will do his very best to take care of his work, make the best out of it and to continue his plans and dreams that have been put aside for a long, long time.

~o~

HOUGHTS. We are in this world to appreciate life. We have everything we need here. We might fail and get hurt one day, but giving up is never an option. Like Jay, all we need to have is the fidelity and the ability to believe that we can make it through. He never stepped someone else’s feet just for him to be successful. Even though he knows to himself that he never did anything wrong, but still has been kicked out of his job, Jay didn’t lose hope. He firmly accepted it wholeheartedly because he believes that God will never give him ordeals that he cannot stand. After all, faith in everything that we do is the main tool to outshine whatever trial and tribulation we will encounter across in life. Jay was also the one who wrote this inspiring story, and that is actually ME.

People say, “Life is short. You have to make the best out of it every day because you never know if tomorrow would still come.” In short verdict, wise people say, “Live your life as if it is your last.” Personally, I agree with these quotes.

Life is beautiful to live by. Every single day, I’m always blessed and so blissful to have the chance to live mine. Who doesn’t experience complexities, hurt, dilemmas and struggles? Who doesn’t feel happiness and joy? All of us, in fact, had experienced them. No matter how small you possess or how numerous wealth you have in this world, you’re not excused. However, these occurrences – happy or sad – make us wiser and stronger in special ways we never know.

After my shift last Saturday afternoon, I decided to go home to my parents’ house to stop the urge of being with them again after a long week of work. I just had a heart to heart talk with them about everything that has been happening while I’m gone. After an hour or two, I went to my mother’s bed room to have a rest. Since I don’t have a bed room yet, I needed to use hers for the mean time. I woke up at around seven in the evening and I prepared to budge so I could go back to my boarding house (my second home).

While I was on my way to my second home, the insight of being grateful to embrace my own life suddenly came into my mind. I heard a lot of people lose their own lives because of accident, excruciating sickness and some of them just merely committed suicides to end their sufferings. I feel pity for them for the reason that they ended their lives sooner. Of course, we can never blame them or even judge them for what they’ve done because we were raised in different ways. How we perceive life depends on what we believe in, how much we know our Creator and how people influenced us in everything they do.

I acknowledge there were times I felt that my existence in this world was nothing but a trash. I almost asked God to conclude my life because of the consideration that I really don’t have much to offer but harm and disappointments. There were times I let down my parents. I let them feel unfortunate of having me as a big “headache” of the family. My father once yelled at me to leave the house to take responsibility of my actions and I took it very seriously. But this judgment was, in fact, the opposite of everything. My parents didn’t look at me like the way I thought I was. The truth was, they really loved me; they were trying to make me understand the reality of living and taking responsibility of my own actions and to become the man that I could become for the rest of my life. Thus, I was the only one who’s thinking that my existence was worthless.

As days passed by, I came to realize that everything has its reason to happen. I was able to know my limitations; I was able to accept myself wholeheartedly. And I look in to that so deeply as my parent’s best reward for me.

That was five years ago. Now, I am very much able to stand on my own; I devoted myself to give my best in everything I do; and wherever I go, I have my faith with me – faith to myself, especially my faith to God. My parents made the right choice for grounding me on that point of my life so I could realize what I did are wrong. They just simply gave me a second chance to live again through their unconditional love and I’m thanking them so much for that.

Mutely, I was sitting still on the passenger’s seat, heading my way to my boarding house. Many passengers came in and out from one place to another. The wind from the open window blew softly on my face, touching my skin with love. My phone,  along with my earphone was on, I was listening to a random radio station. That’s when I heard these very extraordinary lyrics of a song from an unknown singer. Tears covered my eyes when I heard this beautiful voice, singing:

If you ever need a place to cry

Baby, come to me,

Come to me.

Always know that you were born to fly

But you can come to me.

If the world breaks your heart

No matter where on earth you are,

You can come to me.

Though I’m living in different side of the world, exactly three rides away from my parents, their love will stay with me and my love will stay with them. “No matter where I go, I’m certain that I can count on them and no matter where on earth I am and if ever I need a place to cry, I can always come to God.” In fact, you can too.
