Aphorism in Life
“Those who made sacrifices at first, earned happiness in the end” This aphorism came from my own experience and what I want to experience soon. My parents always told me “Anak! Konti na lang makakatapos ka rin, magtiis ka muna”. Everytime I heard that, I always pray and talk to myself that “I know God loves me”. I have a lot of sacrifices made just to be here, to study and to reach for my dreams. My parents can’t afford to send me to school that’s why I stopped one year after I graduated high school. I worked for nine months and after that by God’s grace an acquaintance of my father told me that he wants to support my study. I was really glad because of that opportunity, but of course I need to do my part to them. I worked for their pharmacy every summer and when the school year started I will work for them as the housekeeper, cleaning and washing the clothes and dishes. I have a lot of sacrifices done just to reach my dream and to help my family. There are times that my allowance is not enough but I didn’t complaint for it. I will just say to myself that all of the bad things happening to my life have a reason. Sometimes unexpected things came on our way. But all we need to do is be patient, pray and sacrifice whenever we want to achieve something. And when the time comes, happiness will come on our way without noticing it. Don’t look at the other’s people state in life if they are rich; set that as the inspiration to be like them. If you are poor, don’t make yourself down. It’s not your fault to be born poor; but it’s yours if you die poor. We should not hesitate to take risks, because if we know how to take risk and know how to sacrifice, the fruit of those sacrifices will be sweet. If we want to reach something in our life, we better prepare for the future and study hard. We should work for it and not depend on luck. Believe me, all the sacrifices and patience have a good result. Never ever give up when we think that we can’t do it...
