In achieving my dreams,
I passionately gave all of my time and effort into what I am now.
Unknowingly, I just let myself mature and grow by myself without needing anyone.
While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:
My eyes are just focused on what is ahead of me, without bothering to look back or tilt sideways.
Then one day, one night, after the pandemic crisis arose, I realized that focusing to achieve your dreams will not give you total happiness if you don’t have anyone to celebrate with.
I just thought and realized that everything you’ve created with bloody hard-work in the fullness of the time, will collapse and destroy.
Just today I realized, I created a long, long runway from the people I treasured.
Looking regretful, I actually focused on my future and eventually forgot to live.
I just noticed that I was walking fast to achieve my goal and being fast suddenly gives me gradual loneliness.
I’m just busy running forward. I just continue running without planning to stop.
And then one day I just wondered, that clock is continuously tickling and it will never stop.
And I just thought that I let time pass by me so fast.
I forgot to enjoy the brightest scenery along the way.
And just right now, I finally understand.
At times I wanted to come back to the place that feels like home, where all things are genuine and still innocent, the place where I was first inspired to be I am now, underhandedly they are all gone and left me.
