“The younger you start, the younger you achieve your goals.”
That was my mantra years ago. Those years when I was young and “very” ambitious.
I can still remember the moment when I was like fifteen or sixteen when I promised myself that before I reach twenty-one, there are goals that I have to achieve but here I am, 21 years old, in the kitchen, writing this post. Still a regular student and far from what I dreamed of. However, I know that those experiences should be lessons for me to grow. I will not specifically talk about it but let me remind you that in life, being delayed in your goals is okay. Maybe you haven’t done your best yet or maybe God has better plans for you. We really don’t know the future for life is unpredictable.
A lot of things happened in March. Well, it’s up until now but it started to become big last March. The rise of COVID 19 cases made tons of plans canceled. Not just for me but for everyone else. Right now, I feel so thankful to have a home to stay and food to eat but at the same time, we have to remember that some people are not privileged enough to experience those. They have nowhere to stay and nothing to eat. I think watching a lot of documentaries made me open my eyes “widely.” Just because you’re not experiencing it, doesn’t mean that you should not care about it. I know I can’t help them financially but I hope those who have the same situation with me will never forget the power of prayer. We should not underestimate it. I’m glad that there are also a lot of people doing great amidst the situation. There are way a lot of fundraising activities right now, just like the Ben&Ben live concert. Also, we should never forget the frontliners who’s been sacrificing their life. The doctors, nurses, media people, janitors, street sweepers, garbage collectors, and many more. Let’s not be a burden to them, stay at home if possible.
Please stay safe, everyone!
