when you feel hopeless

At times you forget to celebrate the person you're becoming.
You forget to celebrate that you're great human being too.
You forget to celebrate the silent battles you conquered.

Your mumble prayers that have been answered.
Your worries that turn into worship.
Your fears that turn into faith.

And the trials that turn into lessons.
You don't need to achieve something great before you celebrate,
celebrate the person you're becoming now.

Tiktok Journal Prompts: @merrelya soulful journals

Hurry empties the soul,  never despise the season of preparation. 

You can have your first kiss at thirty five. 
You can have your diploma at forty. 
You can have your business at fifty. 

You're not running out of time;
you're figuring it out.

Not because others are succeeding at their twenties, it doesn't mean you are a failure. 
Your story doesn't need to be like anyone else. 
You are not like any other person. 

Stop measuring yourself against their standards. 
You are supposed to live the life that is precisely meant for you. 
Isn't it amazing that your life isn't like anyone else in the world? 

After all, life is a matter of FAITH. 
Keep going! You're needed here.

Perhaps your path is harder because your calling is higher. Perhaps you need to be familiarize with pain and hardships so you'll appreciate happiness and success better. One day you'll be glad not because you're capable of doing it on your own but because His grace strengthen you and carries you every time you can't walk through life anymore. As long as you're living you are still winning.

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and enjoying the beauty of life. Writing about life, asking God about “kuliglig sa kanyang dibdib.”
