THE BOOK OF LIFE

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

JOVYLENE B. CORTEZ

In life, there ups and downs, hope and des­per­a­tion, fail­ures and vic­to­ries. We en­dan­ger all our en­deav­ors to move for­ward to­wards a brighter to­mor­row. We take all the risks and jump over the ob­sta­cles of chal­lenges to em­brace our dreams. We fail and suf­fer bit­ter­ness be­cause we let it hap­pen. Choices make us con­fuse to de­cide, but there are many ways to choose the best. Just be wise in mak­ing de­ci­sions to avoid mis­takes and re­grets as much as pos­si­ble.

Sto­ries in books and mag­a­zines were made with planned end­ing but not the story of our life. No one knows and can tell his end­ing while he lives. Let us not rely on the fate that we be­lieved is des­tined for us that can never be changed. We are the mak­ers of our track. We are the driv­ers of our own jour­ney. Which way we will take is up to us.

It doesn’t mat­ter how long you will stay in this world but how you live, how you value your life as well as the oth­ers. We are all des­tined to die. Let us make the story of our life wor­thy to keep in ev­ery­one’s me­mory. Let us use the heart of oth­ers as our book where to place our story. In that lit­tle way, we can give light and mean­ings to their life that all of us should do.
