I am no one but I have a story to tell the world

This is my story

                                “Who I am right now has a story and purpose behind it.” – J.J
As my  dreams start with this;

I am at the point that I am about to give up. I’m losing hope. I don’t know where my hope is.  I do really think that I don’t have any chance to go to college anymore. Just imagine that I am already two years out of school youth. Well, I graduated elementary on time and my high school but sadly, I can’t go to college because my parents cannot afford it. So, after my high school. I stopped for two years. I was just at my Aunt’s house helping her. And then, my heart crashed seeing my batch mates they’ve already graduated college and yeah! They can pursue their dreams.  I do felt that I am left behind.

One time, I cried out to GOD and asked Him that LORD is my life stays like this?  Is this really the end of everything? Is this really Your plan for me? and I said that LORD I do really want to go to college. I wanted to finish it.

Hearing those negative people around me that I’ll just end up married and that’s it nothing else. That’s how the other people always told me before.

After that moment, I felt the HOPE really came  back into my heart because God gave me this verse;
JEREMIAH 29:11
  “ FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU, DECLARES THE LORD, PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT TO HARM YOU, PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE”
Yeeeahh! So, after a few weeks, I started to inquire in CENTRAL MINDANAO UNIVERSITY even though I don’t have any assurance to get in that college. ( It’s my dream school since elementary )

Thank GOD. In the next day, my father called me to come back home because there’s an opportunity for him to work abroad and he will send me to college.

And me like Whaaaattt? LORD Is this true? I cried out to HIM with a grateful heart. It’s really unexpected and I cried with joy in my heart.

Then, I got my entrance exam in CMU sadly, my result is failed but because I do have only 5 points left the Administration put me in as PD students. PD means the administration will be the one to pick your course. ( Anyway, way back in my high school year I passed the entrance examination in CMU but the exam result has only 1-year validity).

Fortunately, the Administration has the right to choose my course and they put me in the FOOD BUSINESS MANAGEMENT  Major in FOOD PROCESSING OPTION.  Well, I am so thankful to GOD because HE did put me in a course where I am really fitted in.

YEhheey! My college starts with full of hope and joy and with the banner of my favorite verse the JEREMIAH 29:11.  Thank you LORD for all the wisdom and knowledge cause I really thought that I can’t understand the lessons anymore because of my stagnant knowledge hehe, but I am very grateful because I always have an ACADEMIC SCHOLAR because of my  very good grades and then it helped to my parents because once you’re an academic scholar your tuition will be less.

Indeed, Our Lord is faithful because in our test permit there’s always a verse of Jeremiah 29:11. Every hope and joy in my heart well, I always passed the examinations.

Very truly our God is always faithful. Yes, He let me graduated on time but not just that also my parents even though they’re far from each other they getting more sweeter and sweeter every day.  ( As they get older they get sweeter ).

Yes, there’s no perfect family but GOD provided us with what we have right now because I know what we have before like when I’m studying during night time I got my eyebrow burned because we’re just using a candle. We don’t have electricity before.

That’s why to my mother and my father. Thank you so much for everything. I may not be a good daughter sometimes but I tried and still, I will try to be one for the both of you. And to my brother even though we’re like cats and dogs but I am here for you. You’re one of the reasons too why I got this far because I want to buy a drum set for you and also a DJ set soon HEhe.

I am very thankful to the people who were part of my journey who helped me and taught me financially, morally, Spiritually, mentally, and physically.  Family, Relatives, Friends, Classmates, Friends of Friends. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I am so grateful to have you all. I can’t mention you all but in my prayers, you are all mentioned but with my prayers is how I can pay for all your goodness. 

I bring back all the glory and honor to GOD.
I graduated college last June 2017.
4 years of endurance.
Do not lose hope.
Nothing is impossible.

Temporary

Someone’s hiding
Continuing hunting
Non-stop running
Fear not for everything here on earth is temporary.

Glory to God,

You’re Greatly Blessed

we are meant to be best friends

We believe that we are meant to be best friends
Wherever I go you’re there
Wherever I am you’re near
As what as you’ve said that I hear you and you feel me everywhere
We didn’t say goodbye
We just say until we meet again with talk, eat and laugh
We may have a different journey this time
but I pray to GOD in every journey of my life you’re part and be part of it.
You’re just like a sister to me
Since at first-year college till this day
Nothing’s change.

This photo was taken last 2014 our first time to attend acquaintance party as a first-year college student.

This photo was taken last 2017 our tribute to parents ceremony, then by the next day was our college graduation ceremony. However, we didn’t have any photo wearing a black toga together due to lots of people on that day.

Our photo as a class. Bachelor of Science in Food Business Management major in Food processing ( College of Human Ecology at Central Mindanao University)

Glory to God that all of us passed the college.

After, we took our different path

I went to Davao City for work. And then, a couple of months I was so surprised that my best friend was in Davao also for work.

This is our photo together when we’re in Davao City (we didn’t expect that we wear the same color of shirt in that day hehe) lots of talks and laugh and life updates and everything. Best moment together.

After I resign to my previous job. She resigned also in her job and telling me everything about how unsure she was with her career. She felt she wants something.

And I went to Laguna for job training and suddenly she was in Laguna also for her exam. We didn’t expect this.

Photos of unexpected. (2018)

and lately, she messages me if I am in Cagayan-de-oro-city and Yes, I am.

So, we took the opportunity to meet again. We talked and eat a lot. She’s pursuing her new career and I am too.

This 2019, we are expecting that we will see each other more often because we are near to each other again. And I told her that I felt and understand how she wants to pursue a new career. I understand also that FBM is not her dream course.

We keep on uplifting and supporting each other despite having a long-distance friendship. No matter how long that we didn’t see each other still nothing change in our hearts.

We do always pray for each other and we believe that God is with us.

❤ Love ❤️

Sometimes, you feel that you’re a bit away from God
You think that you’re the one who let go from God’s hand
but no it’s God who’s holding you all the time.
He never thinks of letting you go no matter what.

You’re Greatly Blessed,

You are worth it

What is your first thought about this picture?
It could be negative right?
Because the color is black – it may mean no life, it’s not worth it, etc.
But for me, I saw it as a positive – it’s a rare one, it’s unique and beautiful.
It’s special.
Just like YOU, some people me only see your flaws; may only see your appearance but there’s really someone who sees your uniqueness. Someone that’s gonna think that there’s something inside you that makes you special.

 

You’re Greatly Blessed,
