This isn't just about touching the sky, nor getting into different timezones, or stepping into a new place.
This has always been my dream job, my one true love.
This is not just plainly a career but my end goal purpose.
My essence, my lifetime, my now and forever.
Looking back, I remember my 7 year old self staring outside the window, thrilled as I watched a plane cross the almost cloudless sky, telling my naive wishful self that I'll get there someday. Now that I am here, It was a consistent feeling of cloud 9. The giddiness I can't contain, nothing but pure joy, my chosen commitment, A perpetual connection.
Of this unforeseeable and undesirable circumstance,
I got a dose of terrible anxiety and still very much fearful of not knowing what life has in store for me now.
A bright tomorrow that is by far questionable.
A what's next that remains to be unanswerable.
Bear in mind that in an uneventful time like this,
A solemn conversation from the one up above would make us feel at ease
Like in our world full of uncertainty, we would never what is coming
As my dad would always tell me to keep the faith and keep going
Sun is still shining. Let's leave our woes and dump our worries away,
A pleasant and cheerful "Mabuhay" will surely come back one day.
