Be Still

9:26 AM
Dear Kat,

I know that you have been enjoying your dates with me in the past few weeks. I really hope you are happy with it coz that’s what I always want you to be—to be happy.

I want you to know that you are doing a wonderful job with how you are managing your life. Starting small would definitely lead you to something bigger. So don’t you ever give up on it. Changing career had done you well. I know you would disagree with me on a lot of terms about it but I want to tell you that it really did you well. For one, it made you MORE grateful and faithful. It made you trust yourself that you can really do help in making change happen for the better. Another thing, it had taught you to be patient, I know how impatient you are and how you want to have things done “el pronto”. You also had the opportunity to meet wonderful people from everywhere. Get fascinated with their life stories and share common values in some ways.

I want to commend you for keeping up to date with your personal to-do-list. Cooking seems to be one of your new hobbies. Keep it up. Never get tired of trying something new. You might want to start that garden soon. I know you wanted a dog but it’s not really ideal at the moment.

I want you to learn to wait. In waiting you can also find peace if you choose it. It doesn’t have to be full of depression and comparison. In waiting, you can pray. In prayer, you just need to have faith.

I want you to realize that you should never ever compare yourself with anyone else because you are a completely totally different unique human being. Nobody can ever be like you. Stop feeling lowly compared to others because you never know what others are going through right now.

I know you have pictured yourself to be somebody in the future and it can really be frustrating when things are not going your way. That’s what you have been feeling, I know. I can feel it. Stop feeling frustrated and start focusing on the end goal. Remember what those self-help books had told you. Those readings are meant for practice not just for mere past time of reading.

As you plant seeds of knowledge on every child that comes into your classroom, remember that you are also building a future for yourself. Like the seed you planted on every child, your personal growth may take a little while to be seen. Every realization and every decision you make every day, will define what your future will be. Be patient. Be still.

That career, that dog, that house, that love-- it will all arrive—on it’s own perfect time. Just have a little faith. For now, just try to be that good person you want to be. I know it’s hard. But still, try. If you can’t be a good person today, there will always another day.

Be patient, Kat. That’s what you need to be at this point in your life.

Love,
Meow

  3. So now you're talking to yourself. HINDI NAKO NAGIISA! Ahahaha!

    The thing is parang ako ang sinulatan. Hehehe! We both have the same aspirations. The only difference is, you've already made important changes and choices and you're managing your life superbly.

    You should be proud of yourself. Me? I'm still dreaming and stuck with work that I curse and hate with a passion deep inside me. I got promoted. But am i happy? Never.

    Happiness is achieved by the bravest and the ones who have the courage to take a different path in their lives.

    1. Happiness is a matter of perspective as well. In one way or another, the reason you're stucked there is because you are happy being there, unknown to yourself or you find happiness in being a masokista? Hindi kaya yun yun? Lols.

      In due time you will earn the courage to make bolder decisions :).
