Perhaps, I have learned to love myself more now. I’m 28 already. Mature enough by age. According to some, just at the right marrying age. Well, let's see. As of now, I opted to defer getting into it.
At this point, I have been living 28 years of life. Life that's full of ups and downs. I have been a baby, a toddler, a kid, an elementary pupil, a teenager, a high school student, a college scholar, a grown-up lady, a cost accounting assistant, a cost accounting supervisor, a senior finance executive, a financial analyst but for whatever title or designation I got or I have become over the years, one thing is for sure and could never be denied - I am a mother. I became a mother two years back - it has been my choice; not anyone was able to stop me and I was not regretful about it. Anyways, it actually has made myself complete-being able to attain the essence of being a woman.
Being a mother is already a tough job, being a working mom is even harder and being a working mom with lots of extra-curricular activities is the toughest of all. But then again, it's a choice.
I guess this time I have gotten into a well-balanced life, with all the convenience I have at my current job and with all the time and chances I could get to join into some activities.
FOR MY CAREER
Being an employee of APC is an answered prayer for me. Prior to it is a life of sacrifices having a travel time of 5-6 hours everyday getting back and forth the office (comparing it to a 20-25minutes now). Should there be a chance, I am wishing for a more challenging role or some sort of career advancement within the company in HIS time.
FOR MY FAMILY
I am happy being a mommy, I just wish Coi would understand and the rest of the people at home if I have to allot some of my time in my sports activities. I wish longer life for lola even if she's becoming too persistent at times. Good health for my papa (while he still plays the role of being a father to my siblings at his age) and to the rest of the family. Happiness and peace for my mama even if we don't get along these days.
FOR MY FRIENDS
I have to be thankful about my friends, having my BRUs, the tropang utot, the tropang hadhad, big brother family, SFC family, my so called frends, my weh, my bff, my bes, my former classmates, review mates, office mates (current as well), and everyone who have witnessed a portion of my life and extended so much of help. I cannot thank you enough but I just wish that all you have done for me will be given back to you in two-folds.
I wish I can avail of a continuing education in the next school year for me to earn more knowledge in school.
I wish I can finally make up my mind just about anything and if that happens I wish it could be the right choice for me.
I can not say much about it but I just wish I can do things right for HIS glory.
I wish my sports activities can make a difference to my body. Hope I can be a bit light and slim (120lbs.) than I am now .
Of course, I wish more of it for me to (in no particular order):
- settle any obligations that I have
- avail of an education plan for my son
- get a portable DVD for my Coi-coi
- purchase a digicam I have long been waiting for
- buy myself the sports gear and apparel for my sports activities
- have a car to be driven soon
- pay for my house in full and for its renovation
- support the rest of my family in need
Not all these things are so easy obtain. It requires hard work harmonized with prayer. I wish I can be happy everyday even if it's not my birthday while this LIFE still gives me the CHOICE.
