But a lot of us are in situations where we are trying to love what we do...and that doesn’t have to be miserable. Ask yourself “What are the things that matter to me?” I would like to believe that it would be the achievement of your personal goals: success, happiness, fulfillment, contentment, growth, and prosperity.

The Passion Purpose Talks from the different speakers helped me realize that I shouldn't deprive myself of BEING ME. I always have this mind that If I could also be this person and that person I could be like them, but I was wrong all along because it doesn't make me who I really am. I wanted to be inspiring and motivating others to be who and what they wanna be but I should start with myself. And during my teenage years, I had been depressed the only thing that gives me strength other than my family and closest friends are putting in a paper all the thoughts I have in mind it relieves the loneliness, the unknown pain within me, writing has become my self-recovery. Sometimes the key really is accepting the good, bad, and even your flaws and imperfection and look for the brighter side of it to convert the ungood into something good. Be the master of your own self. One day I will also be on the stage telling and giving others inspirational talks.....
