What’s next??


Teachers open the door but you have to enter by yourself

~Chinese proverbs

That has been my belief ever since.  There can be a lot of things that can be offered to you,  but if you don’t really make that effort to put one foot forward another you wouldn’t get anywhere.

As all the other things in our life, nothing can be done unless you do it or at least give yourself the chance to do it.  I remember this one time, it was after my dad passed away.  So I kind of get used to being hauled by him and my mom everywhere I go! My dad gave me a car but I don’t drive it, my brother does.  Although, I begged him a lot of times to teach me and that he just have to trust me that I can do it.  So one day at breakfast, I begged him again, he put down the cup of tea he was drinking and looked at me and said “You know I do trust you, I know you’re smart and you can easily figure things out on your own.  But the thing is I don’t trust the other drivers out there.  You can be responsible, I know you are but I just can’t risk seeing you hurt when I know I could have had prevented it.”  As much as i want to argue with him that he couldn’t shelter me forever, I didn’t.  I think it hurts him to just think about what could have happened to me out there. But in my mind, a thought just screams at me, “Why do you allow my brothers to do it and not me?” But again, I didn’t argue but the overwhelming  desire to learn to drive and go out and commute was not lessen.  Then that faithful day came.  He left this world at a very young age of 49.  And I was left to be responsible for a lot of things that he use to be responsible for.  If I succumbed to that feeling of being sheltered, I wouldn’t be able to surpass all the trials that has come my way.  I can’t and I won’t say that I did it alone, I had a lot of help like really a lot.  But if I didn’t want to learn or didn’t want to at least entertain the idea that there is something that I don’t know what to do but have to do it I wouldn’t be where I am now and I wouldn’t have learned what I know now.

I do not discredit the fact that we all need to know how we will learn the best, for me I strongly believe that that is the first step.  Just like what I read from one of my fellow blogger’s blog about Learning styles.  The next steps are always up to you. What will you do about it?  What does your gut tells you?  Do you keep on pushing forward and challenge yourself to learn more?  Or would you be contented in just knowing yourself? The ball’s on your court now!

  1. Absolutely agree with the above proverb! Life is a learning curve. We determine how we want our lives to be by the choices we make. Sad to hear about your father! Life happens and we learn to keep moving no matter what. Thanks for linking my post. I appreciate the mention. 🙂

  2. Well said! Everyone can talk us into doing a lot of things that we know are good for us, and we can talk and dream and think about doing things, but until we actually act upon it, it won’t happen…
