I am Tired – and not just in the physical sense.
I am working a 9hours shift as an IT Professional on weekdays, doing V/Blogging as my outlet, managing a small clothing line, doing a social media manager as a freelance, trying to balance my social life and gym life! at ngayon sumusugal sa pagibig, at PUTANGINA Pagod na Pagod na ako!
We live in an exhausting world. [Yung feeling na, you did your best yet no one is appreciating your work, Yung you gave your 100% effort pero tangina kulang pa pala yun]. You’re tired of loving and caring too much, giving too much to a world that never gives anything back. You are tired of investing in indefinite outcomes. You’re tired of uncertainties. Tired of everything.
I know you are not always been this worn out – that there was a time when you were full of hope and pure. I know you have been gradually worn down piece by piece – a broken heart here and an un-kept promise there. I know the world hasn’t always been kind throughout your lives and that you’ve lost more times than you have ever won. I know you’re feeling uninspired to try again. I know.
We are all desperately searching for fulfillment but we are nothing more than an army of broken hearts and aching souls, We’re sick of our current situation but we are too scared to begin again. We know we need to take risks but we’re too scared to fail and be a disappointment.
But here’s what I beg if you’re this close to giving up: give it one more try. I know you’re tired of your attempts but please give it one more shot, the truth about that second wind of passion is that you’re never going to realize you have it if you do not keep on running past your first.
We want immediate results and when we see none, we give up that easily. We let the exhaustion stop us. We get frustrated with the lack of feedback and we just throw the entire attempt right out the window.
Just because you’re beaten down, worn out and tired of the life that you’re living doesn’t mean you’re not making a change. Life will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!
When you’re tired, get some rest, go slowly. Go timidly. Go quietly. But DO NOT STOP. You are tired because you’re supposed to be. You are exhausted for all the right reasons and it’s only an indication to go on and make your dreams come true. You are tired because you’re growing to be better. And someday you will be rewarded from all the sacrifices you did, remember Be strong, things will get better. It might be stormy now, but rain doesn’t last forever. Keep moving forward and keep your eye on the goal!
