Funny how a particular song can inspire me to blog tonight. I'm getting through the feels of it, getting through dupduduh-oh-oh makes me wanna raise my eyebrowsssss but, well...
We make steps to reach destinations - Little steps when we're doubtful; big steps when we're extra-determined; a few back steps when we're afraid, and even great leaps when we're in love. Sometimes, we find difficulties in moving forward.. in stepping into something unknown.. in reaching a dream that is difficult to uphold. BUT, we find courage whenever we have a sure hand to hold; we find confidence when there are shoulders that we can lean on; we find inspiration when there are people whose hands are ready to wipe our tears, our emptiness, our fears.
While I was taking my steps for The Processional last March 24, 2012, I was
a bit nostalgic. I remembered the faces of the people who inspired me so much in this endeavor. God knows who they are and I really owe them a lot. THANK YOU SO MUCH, and I really mean these words.
When we were nearing the University Gymnasium, I remembered a little something. Deep within, I knew that it could have been the finish line that we were.. this and that, whatever. Putting all my emotional strings aside, I walked with joy, triumph and happiness all the more when I saw my parents smiling at me. They aren't the vocal type but I'm certain that they 're very happy for this triumph. Mommy even told me, "Nak, palangga jud ka sa Ginoo... kay sa imong kamaldita, gigrasyahan ka'g daghan". HAHA, I know right, Mommy?!!!
ANYWAY, I once thought that the happiest feeling would be that when I get my diploma. I even did a very annoying cute little bow on stage, darnit! HAHA BUT BUT BUT nothing can beat the feeling that I had when I gave my parents the symbol of my sacrifice. Grabe lang! I never saw my parents smile like those moments.
Since I've been hearing this song for about 15 times already (Yes I'm like that, one two, one two one two three hahaha), I certainly have to end this post.
