That thing called PURPOSE.

Our purpose on Earth is not to get lost in the dark through our life’s journey. But to be be a beacon of light so that others may find their way.

Special Issue: Barefooted-Wearing the Pink Shoes

“And suddenly you know… It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”

Too often, I forget how to pick up myself from the ground and begin again.

Almost always, I stay back and just cry sittin’ along the rocky road of life.

–this is the way of my life back then.

I fall, I rise, I make mistakes, I live, I learn. I am human, not perfect. I have been hurt, but I am alive. I think of what a precious privilege is to be alive- to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things I love.

Sometimes, there is sadness in my journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep on putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just round the bend.

According to my favorite cartoon character Winnie the Pooh,”Life is a journey to be experienced, not a problem to be solved.” He is actually right. Every little things we do counts on what we think matters the most. Since we are challenged by waves of problems almost everyday, we became worried on how to fix everything else. But as we come to think of it, time is running constantly. If life ceases due to the bumpy road we are walking through, it’s not being alive anymore.

To be alive to feel pain.

To be alive is to continue the journey despite of harshness of life.

“So often, we become so focused on the finish line that we fail to enjoy the journey.” Life’s not a marathon to run fast than anyone else. Why not enjoy the scenery in front of you. Take it all one day at a time and enjoy the journey.

“I hope the days come easy, and the moments pass slow, and each road leads you to where you want to go.”

WE ARE BORN BAREFOOTED. Simply to say that we gotta ride the Pink Shoes of life. You have to do what is right for yourself. Nobody is walking in your shoes.Simply being free. Sometimes, the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to, it’s not for them.

Just hold the vision, and trust the process. . .

“Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny.”- C.S. Lewis, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. If your path is more difficult, it is because your calling is higher. You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes, you just need to BREATHE, trust, LET GO and see what happens. 🙂

Enjoy the journey. Live life & enjoy each day. Every day is a new present waiting to be unwrapped. Unwrap it slowly, enjoy it, and be thankful. ♥

Actually, all of us walk in this world barefooted. As we try to realize it, without the protection from our shoes, we could feel the earth from where we stand and as long as we do not stop from walking, it actually hurts stepping all the rocky road and muddy plains that slow us down. Remember, the struggle is part of the story.

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome. 🙂 Ganbatte kudasai!

“But be brave enough to travel the unknown path, and learn what you are capable of barefooted- wearing the pink shoes.”

The Journey of My Life

Palapit na nang palapit na matapos ang bakasyon ko. AGOSTO 6, 2014, maglalayag na naman kami ni Sean, para sa panibagong pagharap sa buhay. Isang panibagong hakbang para sa ‘king kinabukasan. Naway gabayan ako ng Panginoon para mapanindigan ko ‘tong pinili kong daan sa pagtahak ng aking mga pangarap. Chemical Engineering…. mapag-aaralan na rin kita sa wakas. Help me Lord, to continue my journey with strength and faith to believe in myself in times of difficulties. I’d rather be lost without You. To my family here in Surigao City, thankyou for the love and happiness we’ve shared. Woh! UP Visayas, here I come.
