there’s so many haters out there and no matter how you try change their outlook, haters are going to hate. but i can’t worry about them and let them tell me otherwise. if they have nothing positive to say, i couldn’t care less about these haters and their worthless opinions. the best thing to do is just want to carry on with my missions and prove them wrong. let my actions speak for themselves and eventually they will either have to take back their criticism or eat their words. since the only thing in my control is to go out and do what i need to do, the rest will follow. if my mind is set on doing something, i should never fall short of doing so just because of someone’s comments. i honestly don’t need these people’s approval in order to fulfill what i believe are my goals, ambitions and what i consider to be the best that i can be. understand that they are haters for a reason – because they simply see you as a threat to be better than them and fail to keep up with you. it’s also not practical to have anyone take anything away from how hard i work and how bad i want to achieve something. bottom line is if it feels right, i will do everything i can to make it happen. end of story. it’s that simple and doesn’t need to be made complicated

resolution series: [twenty] happy

people can be too judgmental and materialistic these days. yes it’s true, you can’t live without money, but you can’t live with happiness either; and the last time i checked, money can’t buy happiness. sometimes it is the little things in life that makes all the difference in the world.  even as simple as an act of kindness can go a long with in someone else’s life. the ultimate goal is living a happy life and getting what you want out of life. be who you are and don’t let anything change you. do the things you like and don’t let other people tell you otherwise. it’s your life after all, so it’s better to live the way you want than to have someone tell you how to live your life. there used to be so many negative people in my life that always told me what i couldn’t do and what not do to. that’s more reason to prove them wrong and make sure they don’t make such assumptions again. i like my sports and activities. i am also aware that i am made of glass and gets injured easily, but that doesn’t stop me cause that’s what makes me. through sports i find happiness; its my happy place whenever i need to destress or digress. also enjoy hanging out and chilling with my friends, trying new things, eat out, traveling, exploring the city and the world. these things make up me and i can’t imagine my life without them. i will continue to pursue my dreams and passion for as long as i can

sunrun: an episode of character building

for the past four months, i have been avoiding and stressing out over the sun run because it feels like a neverending marathon to me. today, i can sit here confidently and say that it’s a mission of character building and realization, and it’s a mission accomplished. i went into the race not knowing what to expect but i knew i had something to prove to all those doubters out there. i think the reason my kinesiologist has been giving me such a hard time and always doubting me is so he could provoke that competitiveness out of me and prove him wrong. even though i made the time that people said i couldn’t, i can’t help but feel some disappointment of not making the time i was secretly aiming for. but when i have crossed the finish line at the end of the run, and i still feel amazing as if i just ran a 5km race, that’s when i know i really should have pushed myself harder and made a better time. all in all, it was a good run in the books and i got myself respectable result, much credit goes to my running partner for not giving up on me. but more importantly, through all this, it was an episode of realization about my character that only made me a better person. when i said i would do something and set a goal for myself, i have to keep at it and never quit until i see the finish line. i may have to take back my statement about running not being my thing, because i think i will continue to strive for better time next time, whenever it may be. this was all made possible because of all the doubters out there, my running partner and my kinesiologist who kept pushing me every step of the way and then keeping my body sane. my legs have never felt this good for the longest time and still feels good after the run, and that i am grateful for
