Tough day. Isn’t it?

Those are the first words that I was able to tweet as I got home today.

It’s really cold here in Baguio yet I don’t want to let myself get cold, too. You know what I mean. I want to keep the fire burning. Well if you still didn’t get it… here’s a question: Have you ever lived a day of perfection? I’m sure that none of you will answer yes; unless you’ve gotten some optimism at its finest when nothing seems to be going wrong. Technically, we can never attain perfection. We can only make the best out of the things that we have- for a greater purpose.

As I recall, some of my blog posts included some of the activities I really enjoyed doing these past few months such as: helping random people, trying to be awesome (not the ‘people-pleaser’ type though), and joining marathon for a cause. Today, I’ve got a very simple thing to show you.

A friend, who is a member of an organization, has invited me to come to their place. I didn’t hesitate because I was thinking that whatever happens, I would still eat lunch and I think it’s better to eat while I help other people in small ways. I’m not flaunting it. I just want to keep some stuffs that I can remember as time passes by. I know to myself that I’ve done this… so the next time I’ve seen another chance of doing amazing things, I can tell myself: It’ good enough. I can do better than this!

My day is full of brisk walking, planning on the things I must be doing, talking to people, making decisions, brainstorming, and a lot more. I can’t even explain how I am feeling right now perhaps I believe that every day is a stepping stone for an individual into becoming a better person.

Tough day. Isn’t it? You must be tougher: Note to Self.

What’s Good About Losing

A chilly evening, guys! This time I’m going to share to you an article I wrote back when I was in high school. It’s just an ordinary piece of literary that was once published by maBCAS. It’s not the kind of work that goes too deep but something that comes from the heart… because I, too, had experienced failing. Through this, I’ve found a way to actually motivate myself and other people to never give up. We all pass through thick and thin moments. We’re being challenged- and sometimes it’s not actually the destination that really matters. It is about the journey and how we traveled it.

Always winning can be boring. Let us try the different spices all over. Cheer up, man! 

What’s Good About Losing

“Congratulations!”- Who wouldn’t like to be acknowledged for a job well done? A loser might have wished to hear this, too.

Everytime a sun sets off is a sign of another day coming towards us. People would always have to prove something. Bring up the best. Get the tasks accomplished. Stand out among the crowd. That’s us. We believe that we deserve to be accredited. No more. No less. But what we wanted cannot always happen. ‘Expect the unexpected’, they usually say. Expectations and disappointments may come out together. It is not always a wonderful surprise or a planned activity that is to be followed. We just have to deal with the stresses of life… and a follow-up question “How could I even…?”

Accept the fact that we all have a turn to lose! Life is hard and unruly. We are all warriors by chance with our lives as swords and this world as the battleground. We cannot please everyone just by being ‘an ordinary man with his typical exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide processed in an entire life’. A fight is what it takes to win and therefore be hailed as a victor. From simply winning a writing contest or a marathon, into winning a deal from foreign investors or be recognized in a business forum, even until winning the nation’s Presidence candidacy or one’s self being featured in the coverpage of Forbes magazine- can be regarded as an adventure, a voyage sailed by a battleship. Two chances at stake, and those are: whether to make it or not.

Winning set aside, there’s something to look forward into. An essence of what is really worth fighting for would make us realize how our struggles could make our hopes and dreams come true, without a fear of losing. Some people might still had a doubt and others might say “I think I was born to be a loser just how it sucks to be me”. But does that person really know the purpose of his existence? Will God ever create man to lose everything under the sun? Definitely, the answer is NO. We are all reared in purpose, not ever the same but has something to contribute to the planet Earth.

Can you imagine yourself living in a perfect world? No worries and no mistake. The thrill is nowhere to be found. No more learnings, not even surprises to burst us the excitement. A boring vicinity surrounds the atmosphere. Just like how it may actually look like in a battle without a winner and a loser. A winner could have had it all yet a loser could have had more than that. That’s what is great about losing. The real wisdom of why losers are considered worth existing. Without them, a low-lying spirit could have just been contented with a passion itself. There’s a significance why there exists a loser in every battle for a tough man will consider ‘losing’ as part of his way to success and that determination and dedication are always at risk as wealthy foundation of becoming an even greater individual.

No matter what happens, there’s a fight to continue and its principles to pursue. Win or lose, a noble heart can resist whatever the result may be. There’s always a better day that lies ahead and much more reasons to prove one’s self as a wonderful creation of God. And that what makes everyone a champion. So now, do you think simply being ‘you’ is the good thing about losing?

Don’t try to ma…

Don’t try to make me stay
Or ask if I’m okay
I don’t have the answer~

…some lines taken out from One Direction’s Irresistible.

We may not always feel the utmost happiness that we wished could never leave us, let’s still find the glory from the purpose of our sacrifice. Life is tough, but we must be tougher!

Better things will soon take over 😉
