During my younger years I kept doing things and making decisions so forceful. I thought having that attitude will make me better, make me who I wanted to be but I was wrong. I piled up all my mistakes one after the other, and leaving me miserable.
It came to a point that my parents asked me to take things slowly, I was so hesitant because I wanted to reach my dreams, I wanted to be the person I wanted to be and I wanted to be happy. It took me a while to understand what my parents wanted to say. I was struggling, I was angry because I felt they’re losing trust in me and felt they never supported me.
I try to recollect every scenarios that happened in my life, Every battled I fought, every trials I faced, and Every problems I solved. In those times my parents never leave me. They’re always at my side to cry with me, to pat my shoulders, and to cheer me up and make me feel I am not alone.
It was difficult for me to take it slow but I realized I never did anything good and it seems that I am not working smart. I exhausted all my efforts but the outputs were not satisfactory.
I’ve been through a lot of adventures in life just to bring home the bacon. It was never easy to make every ends meet. I keep on hitting the iron while it was hot but never gave me the expected output what I wanted.
Life taught me many lessons. It made me more resilient to every difficult situations. It made me brave to face back life challenges, it made me laugh behind every tears I shed.
Life taught me to wear mask to hide my miseries, to hide my scars from wounds that I bared.
I learned to be victorious despite defeats. Life was indeed a roller coaster ride. It gave me vertigo but I tried not to loss balance. I learned to dance with sounds of life.
Yes I was tired… Literally tired…I surrendered…
I stepped my brake and started my first gear, I learned to listen, learned to accept my weakness. learned to take off my mask and accept the reality, and learned to let God take control.
Yes I let God take control, I just listen to my heart and let God take me to where He wants me to be. I let my path take its own pace.
For the first time I listened to my parents, I started to slow down and enjoy life. I realized I missed so much in life. my youth, and opportunities to be myself. I was so focused on the things I thought could make me who I wanted to be in the fastest way.
Now I enjoy life, I take the opportunities to chase back all that I’ve lost. It’s not yet too late for me to get back what I have never enjoyed.
Moral in life, don’t be in a hurry. Take everything slow and work smart. Life is too short, enjoy it, and live life to the fullest.
