What keeps me going?

Learn to deal with the mud
Learn to deal with the mud: Life is a journey and it will always be. Better be not to rant, but learn to deal with every opportunity to bring out the light. (1/2)

Working with a non-profit organization focusing on holistic community and leadership development in indigenous communities for almost 5 years now, gives me a space to grow and to dig deeper in understanding the enormous arena of life challenges. My journey was not an easy one, I started as a program staff and all through the years, I continually feed myself every inch of opportunity to learn, I did not contain myself on what I have learned from school or from my own experiences. I believe that every day, every opportunity is a learning process, an opportunity to empty my mind or unlearn the things that is not significant in the call of the times.

With an open heart, it allows me to delve into my own capabilities in engaging with different community partners to do what is good, what is beautiful and what is life-giving. "What keeps you going?" a friend asked, and I ardently responded: "What keeps me going? Possibly because of the community I walk along, and being part of every uphill and downhill flight on unfolding of every community's dream. For every partner that positively and willingly supported community journeys and to the every opportunity to unlearn, learn and relearn life lessons."

Hello, Khai,

Finally, you’re here! I witnessed how passionate you are with your community engagements and the relationships you develop along your journey.

It excites me that you can now share these stories to the world. We will surely learn a lot from your reflections and experiences in the far-flung areas of the Philippines.

This is an online safe space for women. I hope you will form connections, find partnerships and access a plethora of resources here.

Thank you for sharing your story, Khai!

Welcome to World Pulse! :)

Thanks Karen. It took me gazillion years to motivate myself to publish my writing. I hope I can find the motivation to continue to do it.

I love that you are brave enough to publish your experiences, Khai.

This is a place to breath. There’s no room for judgement here, just support and encouragement. This is a place to be free to be you! Welcome!

Hello Khai,

Welcome to World Pulse! So glad that Karen introduced you to the sisterhood. You are very blessed to know Karen, too:-)

I also believe that every day is opportunity to learn and grow as much as possible.

I'm looking forward to hearing more about what you do, more about the organization that you work for and what you're passionate about.

Hope you have a great weekend!
