Everyone has a vision in life.Actually, I am not a dreamer since then and mine(Vision),maybe,will be different because as the saying here goes,can it be possible to say that"You have to cross the bridge when you get there".I just have a very simple outlook in life which they said "having a shallow happiness". During my grade school,never,never I dream to be a teacher-seeing how hard the work and obligation of second parents next to our real one.Upon reaching my maturity,I started to appreciate and acknowledge the dedications,hardships,sacrifices and all the exerted efforts done by my teachers.I also come to realize then,that teaching does not require to be done in classroom setting only but there are lots of places, like under the shade of a tree,under the bridge and even in a dilapidated space where we feel that the ambiance is conducive for learning. I have a classmate-friend,which parents are separated and got three kids and was left to the care of the mother,so that in order to sustain their daily needs and no choice for her,she was forced be accept costumer.On that,my mother prohibit me to go to the house of my friend and not wanting me to befriend with her.I know,at that time I was so ambivalent and have resistance to follow her order. I insist of what I suppose to do and find ways to have time and opportunity to play.I don't want to judge a woman for doing so,and nobody wants to have a despicable life like that.Another friend of mine was adopted and again I was restricted to play with her because she has a bad attitude, not nice how she is treating her adoptive parents.But as we go along,I can influence her to acknowledge and be thankful for the good things she's enjoying given by her not real parents.
Mission in life is the path which is very frightening and full of risks.I could not waste my remaining life in a nonsense way and I want it to be more meaningful,useful and to make the most out of what is given to me, and pay it forward.When I was involved to the Taal volcano victims,it was so frustrating and hurting me so much to see the people,women,children and old ones staying on the temporary evacuation site while waiting for them to have safe refuge.Only I can lend them is my moral support,helping to cook while having conversation giving hope that they can pass the challenges they're facing at the moment.I help to put/clear their things in places and help solicit used clothes,foods and medicines.I even go with the leaders/representative to seek the help and bring to the attention of the governor of their situation.I extend my help whenever there's medical mission going on.Having with me the skills I've learn and experiences I've gained being a community organizer to rural and urban setting fave my way to pursue and continue to walk to the bridge that I am saying.
The clamor of every woman around the world,in building a strong nation,where womens' reproductive and health rights are being acknowledge and practice has been gradually increasing.I am always praying for a wider world where peace and justice abide,equal opportunities for women and men is being enjoyed and people are more compassionate and less judgemental.
