REFLECTION ESSAY

The Problem Absorbed

           “No man is an island” (John Donne’s Devotions (1624)). This quotation hits me that stumble my life, maybe this defines who I am. I admit, I never lived my life to the fullest, I just sometimes took some stones and threw it away and my life reflected as really nonsense sometimes. To be honest, I’ve learn a lot from my own mess, errors or from the pain that stuck me in the cross roads, and I just found it really interesting to be taught by my own world. My past eventually changed my present to be exact, a negative became positive or sometimes a positive all of the sudden became negative. Help me start how my life learns and how it grew from nothing to someone.

            The future of mine has something to do with my present instances and events that would probably affects my path for my tomorrow, we all have our own dreams that made us motivated to aim high and shoot for success. I sometimes don’t have an idea why things got terrible and difficulties that drags me down; it wasn’t that easy to cope again when you fail for an instance, we were not failed if we are not going to fight back. It was a great animated film that focuses about the three trees that once beg and dreams to be something better and useful. But unfortunately they weren’t become that successful instead they became very meaningful. The way to success was really a rough road that would takes wound to overcome and rich the life that everyone ever imagine to have. Everyone has its uniqueness having something that not all had, and it all depends on us on how to develop this ability that would help me and others to become a meaningful person. Everything would run onto you, don’t be someone but just be you, it was our own world that puts us in satisfaction.

          We were born having something that others don’t have, or we have a disabilities either it was physically or emotionally. But both of this would be a barrier to have a good and better life. But don’t let this command your future it would lead you to success if you see the positive side and set aside the negativity of yours. It was like my mother, It always made me confused when my mother keeps on saying that please take care of yourself, be a good person, don’t do bad things and she even sacrifice herself just for me. One thing I knew was it was her responsibility to do. But every time she scolded me, I felt so bad that upsets me and temp’s me to do things that would made me irresponsible. I don’t think so if it is still her responsibility, to say bad things to me, scratched my reputation and anything that upsets me. It took me years to understand why, and just to understand that it wasn’t just about her being a mother to me or just doing he responsibility, but it was all about love that made me think that she gave me everything not because she just want to but that’s her way to show how much she loves me. I thought the way to happiness is just to do everything I want to and to disobey my mother, but it is more than that I’ve ever thought, to take care of my mother as well, to love her just like the way she does.

True Narrative

(Mr. Norman Ompoc)

          Some people live the way they wanted but others are striving to survive in the battle of life. In my case, I was one of those struggling, way back when I was just one month young. I have lost my father. I did not experience the things that mostly children do together with their father. I grow longing for a father’s love but my mother never let me feel empty with love. She fills me with her genuine love and tender care. Life seems so tough, and full of twist at times. I was born with no gold and silver with me, that is why we are scratching the ground like a chicken just to have something to eat. My mother works as a housemaid, and nobody can watch over us, luckily she has a good Samaritan boss that let us live together in one roof. Blessing is there in the middle of agony, but that’s not the end of my story. I went to school not the same with other gals and lads that they have everything they need. I am working to provide the things needed in school. Walking with head bow down and taking my steps slowly so that nobody will notice me. Weird as they call it, since I’m a loner person. I choose to be alone because being with other people makes me feel uneasy. I continue living life with the same routine, working and studying. Despite of the misfortune I am experiencing one thing that I am holding to survive, is to never lose hope even in the most difficult times. Yes! life is not easy just like mine but I always bear in mind that God is always with me and He is just giving me all these challenges for me to be strong in handling things in the future. As the time goes on, I conquer every difficulty I am facing. I am starting to learn to mingle with others and I can smile now in the middle of hardships. Being positive and having faith to God is my way to win my battle.

Personal Narrative

The Legend of Three Trees

By: Jimboy S. Asiñero

            The future of mine has something to do with my present instances and events that would probably affects my path for my tomorrow, we all have our own dreams that made us motivated to aim high and shoot for success. I sometimes don’t have an idea why things got terrible and difficulties that drags me down; it wasn’t that easy to cope again when you fail for an instance, we were not failed if we are not going to fight back. It was a great animated film that focuses about the three trees that once beg and dreams to be something better and useful.  But unfortunately they weren’t become that successful instead they became very meaningful.

              As I reflected to myself, I am just like one of those trees, I have many dreams and interest for something really new and interesting, but just to realize that I lose my focus and never have a target for success. I have many questions why I can’t be someone that many would idolize; maybe it was because I tend to be someone different from others and forgets to love myself, one thing that this film made me realized that we must see ourselves for something really important. We may not be someone we wishes to be but there’s a space reserved by God for us the only thing to do is to wait for the right timing. Change was inevitable going with this isn’t that easy, but once you learn to adopt with it, everything would be more understandable. Claiming that everything you see in the world could be learned by you, if the presence of the interest is continuous. I sometimes wanted to be strong, to be the tallest, and to be the hardest from all. But we never see the greatest thing in life that it was about being you and not being the one that pushes to be someone different.

           I have many experience that made me think that it was enough to live, but after watching the animated film, things got changed that made me think again that there were still a lot of things to be learn and experience. I wanted to experience those instantly and to feel how it felt, I thought I could in that moment but seems so uncertain and things became changeable. The way to success was really a rough road that would takes wound to overcome and rich the life that everyone ever imagine to have. Everyone has its uniqueness having something that not all had, and it all depends on us on how to develop this ability that would help me and others to become a meaningful person.

          It always made me confused when my mother keeps on saying that please take care of yourself, be a good person, don’t do bad things and she even sacrifice herself just for me. One thing I knew was it was her responsibility to do. But every time she scolded me, I felt so bad that upsets me and temp’s me to do things that would made me irresponsible. I don’t think so if it is still her responsibility, to say bad things to me, scratched my reputation and anything that upsets me. It took me years to understand why, and just to understand that it wasn’t just about her being a mother to me or just doing he responsibility, but it was all about love that made me think that she gave me everything not because she just want to but that’s her way to show how much she loves me. I thought the way to happiness is just to do everything I want to and to disobey my mother, but it is more than that I’ve ever thought, to take care of my mother as well, to love her just like the way she does.

 

Testimonio

 

            We were born with hands, feet, body, food, parents and everything that surrounds us. When we were still young we cannot all things as what we can see other guys doing because we weren’t net capable enough, and when we became older it was really sad to say that all we need to do is just to rest because we are no longer that strong just like those days pass by. We all have limitations that control us, we sometimes hate these limitations but we sometimes lean with these limitations. The presence of several limitations imposed by being an embodied subject may influence us to think that our life is very restricting. Life becomes difficult because of these limitations. However, it is also these limitations that make our lives more interesting and challenging. Try to imagine living without these limitations, your life would turn to meaningless, you wouldn’t be strong become you weren’t challenge by these limitations; you would live without any concern of everything that surrounds and connected to you because you live without these limitations. It is not about avoiding these limitations and trying to overcome with these limitations, but by knowing it to yourself that it was nature of a human having these limitations because that’s what makes a human a human.

            Life was unique and special but not all of us can see it. There was a video clip that our teacher shows us, and it was all about the life they live with many limitations. Those persons having a disability and living really far away from a normal life of the majority, but one thing that they were gifted was the happiness despite of their conditions, the other guy can’t stand, the other guy don’t have hands and legs and other one having an inborn disease called Progeria. These disabilities would add more limitations compared to the normal limitation we had, but they still have a reason to smile, to fight instead of giving up. They have philosophies in life that change their lives too. They may have nothing but they became something for many of us that know how hard it was for them to smile and live with that kind of limitation. Knowing that disabilities wasn’t there trouble or barrier that stop them, but eventually became their strength that made their happiness. A normal life really struggled to find peace when they came to the situation where they found their selves upset with the limitations in life, just like when they got old and when they were young. The presence of do’s and don’ts would trigger to be frustrated, but these persons having disabilities, they more than you, but they never complaint but they rather chose to be happy and accept their being spatial temporal being. It may stop them for doing something but never give up and accepted their reality. There was a big difference from normal to pain and from pain to normal. It was hard to relieve yourself when you used to have a happy life, normal things, but then suddenly everything became complicated and you were place in a cross roads, there was a choices you were given, it was you live or stay. But those were disabled they chose to live because that’s what life worth for.

         Just like my mother, she never thought about her condition and pains to her heart, but the only thing she knew was she must do what she has to, the pain became her disability, but it never became her obstacles that would stop her, instead it became her strength. She had many limitations too but she chooses to be someone better. Many limitations that would made us weak sometimes, but it all depends on us, if we let that emotion control us. Change was inevitable, going with this isn’t that easy, but once you learn to adopt with it, everything would be more understandable. Claiming that everything you see in the world could be learned by you, if the presence of the interest is continuous. I sometimes wanted to be strong, to be the tallest, and to be the hardest from all. But we never see the greatest thing in life that it was about being you and not being the one that pushes to be someone different.

            It takes time to realize things and puts us in a room of understanding. When things got impossible to handle, it was all about the wisdom that knows everything, when lessons of life became unforgettable, the life would be easier if you to accept what is already given by God including our limitations.
