When I was younger I’ve always imagined myself to be a completely different person when i grow up. Maybe it’s because of all the TV shows that I watched, growing up in a filipino household the filipino channel was always on, and I remember those shows where the kid grows up to be a completely different looking person. Thinking that was normal, I thought to myself that one day I will grow up looking completely different from how I was as a kid. I always looked at the mirror and thought of how my face would change, I don’t know how or when but when i grow up I knew i was gonna look different, and I’m gonna be successful right away. You know that movie 13 going on 30, I guess that’s why that’s one of my favorite movies. You wake up one day, and you’re beautiful and successful!
I’ve always thought that’s how life was, I never thought of the actually process of getting there. I never thought of how you’re gonna get to that place that you’ve always wanted to get to. The process, that you have to go through puberty, go to school, study hard, and the process of becoming the person you’ve always wanted to be. I’ve always thought to myself that life was gonna be easy, that everything is going to be ok, because you know what! I know i will be beautiful and successful. I really thought that, and I wish that i still think that way. But I don’t.
When you Find Friends that has the same interest as you, and by interest that means friends who will take good pictures of you and with you haha! They’re the ones you treasure for life! I love these girls to death! ❤
My third trip to my home country, the Philippines! Like what they say there really is no place like home. Philippines has gotta to be one of the best place to go for a vacation, not only is it cheap, but the beaches, and mountains are just so beautiful. During this trip one of our first stop, was at Tagaytay in Batangas. There we saw the world’s smallest volcano, the Taal Volcano. This may sound confusing, but it’s an Island, within an Island, and Inside that Volcano is also another lake, that has a smaller Island inside. Are you lost? Yeah me too, when they were explaining that to me. Really Tagaytay was just an amazing spot, to walk around, ride horses, and by the way riding a horse for an hour was only PHP 300, which is roughy $6! You can also go ziplining! Definitely a great place to bring your family, or a destination trip with your friends!
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
We are all at different seasons in our lives, and no matter what it may be, whether it be good or bad, God is always there for us. “Do not be afraid”, those words always sticks out to me. God is always reminding us to always be strong, because he knows that there are going to be trials in our lives and things that are really going to break us down. So he’s always reminding us to not be scared, to have courage and be strong. God knows what’s in our heart, and he knows that as human we can be weak sometimes, so being constantly reminded of his love, and that he will always be with us every single step of the way keeps me going. We create the fear and anxiety for ourselves, not wanting to come out of our comfort zone and being exposed is what keeps people from really pursuing the life that they are destined to live. The fear of never being good enough distracts people for even appreciating the little things in life. We create that fear for ourselves. We must always remember that no matter what situation we are in our life we must let God take control of everything, He know’s what is the best for us and even if we are going through some storms in our life right now, just trust Him and believe that he will take us out of that storm.
