Faith and Determination

I have gone through a lot of hardship during my high school and college days but I don't have any regrets at all. All those hardships makes me a strong woman that I am now. I was very active as a student but all the things that I used for every activities are just borrowed from my friends whose parents can afford to buy them stuff.

As you can see in this photo, I look sad because I thought I won't be able to make it to the first inspection of our CAT presentation. I was an officer but I don't have a uniform to wear. Glad that a friend lent me the uniform I was wearing. But looking back to what I have gone through, it make me smile and thank God that I have overcome all of those with just a determination and faith as my weapon.

Sorry guys if I bored you to death on this post lol.

Hi there! Not boring at all! It's so interesting to me to see all these photos from the past, and also the stories that go along with them.

How nice that your friends had the items you needed. What a blessing!

Talagang ganun ang buhay. Mas mabuti nga na nauna ang hirap sa iyo tapos ay ginhawa naman. Kaysa ginhawa nga sa umpisa tapos hirap naman sa dulo. Yung mga pinagdaanan mong hirap ay mga pagsubok lamang na nagpatatag sa iyo para magtagumpay sa buhay. Mabuti at buhay pang lahat ang mga luma mong litrato. Nakakaaliw makita ang mga iyon pagkalipas nang panahon. Thanks for the nostalgic post. God bless you always.

Officer ka pala bading, cge lng kasi successful ka na man. I agree with Sir Mel, buti na yung nauna ang hirap sa buhay, at ang maganda sayo bakla lahat ng success mo, pinaghirapan mo, so ang sarap ng prutas ng yung paghihirap.

His Unfailing Love said...

Ganyan talaga ang buhay pag may hirap may ginhawa sabi daw nila. Yes, I agree, if you have determination and faith you will succeed.
By the way, congrats for your girl. I voted for her too.

Hindi sya nakakaboring sis..in fact nakakarelate nga ako eh. Officer din ako noon, 2nd Battalion Officer. Ako naman matagal bago nakapagawa ng uniform kasi naghintay pang mgakapera.

You remind me of mine, on third year i was cocc, and then i gave up my ambition of being an mp when i heard they had someking of hazing, im sure my mom won't like it if she learns of it. i am thankful to the Lord that i never lacked anything when it comes to education, although there were times when i had to wait on my mom to buy me the stuff that i need, but i was still able to lend my CAT uniform to one of my classmates, who actually didn't thought of giving it back LOL!
