“All my bags are packed
Im ready to go
Im standin here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye”
From this day forward, I’m gonna have a new life, new beginning and new environment. I’ll be leaving for Manila. I’ll be working there and I hope everything would be okay. This would be the very first time I would be separated with my family for a long time. I feel sadness. I don’t want to leave them especially my Mom. But, I’ll be holding on to my promise that it’s time for me to return the favor to my family especially my Mom and Sister, who have been so supportive with me. I’m glad that both of them are still with me – alive.
I know the first few weeks in Manila would be very tough for me – both physically and mentally, because I’ve been so dependent with my family for my whole life. But somehow, I thank them for teaching me how to do household chores. I’ve been wanting to learn how to be independent and I guess, this is already the opportunity for me how to learn that.
I have realized that in life, we have to choose and make decisions and in every decisions, we need to make sacrifices. So this is what I am doing now, I have to sacrifice being away with my family because of the choice I made. I want my family to be proud of me – especially my Mom, Dad and Sister.
To God be the Glory! Have a nice day!
