Have It All
via Kurt White
Im so in need of time. Im old na;)
Who am I?
Im in the mood to write. I wanted to go to sleep to get atleast 5hrs of sleep before I go malling but it seems like the coffee I drank 5hrs ago has already kicked in.
This is in response to an article I read from throught catalog entitled “12 things that show you who you really are”. Out of the whole article, 2 points of the author strucked me and inspired me to do a self-reflection and put it into writing. Two questions: What comforts you? And what would you do if money is not an issue?.
What comforts me in time when things are not going my way? Hmm, when shit happens? The very first thing that comforts me is knowing that I have my family who I know will back me up and let me heal under their protective wings. Secondly, I comfort myself with the thought that nothing in this world last forever thereby any pain and hardship are only temporary with the aim of helping us see our highest potential. That at certain times, these hardships will serve as our guide in overcoming bigger blocks in life. As what Hannah said, in the witty HBO tv series, “One mistake at a time”.
What will I do if money is not an issue? I would definitely be at home living lif, e serving my parents. And during those times they don’t need me, I will be travelling the world, enjoying God’s creating, taking a bath in the sea and meeting people from every. I want go back to school and learn more about history at the same time, either serving the role of a student or a teacher. It seems like having a family is not part of my immediate plans.
Its really time to leave Cebu and be with my family. I miss them already. I know its hard to change lifestyle but I think its better than being alone and far from my family. Soon, im gonna be home.
note to self: growing up
You’re going to lose closeness with the vast majority of people you once really cared about, even with social media and a million ways to stay in touch, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s just a normal, healthy emotional molting process that is going to take place regardless of how many times you like their status updates. #thought catalog
Realizing that some friends are going to end up with people that you know, in your heart, are not a right decision for them — and that this is just a mistake they are going to have to make on their own.# thought catalog
