It IS hard or that’s my story for the past two weeks. I’ve been living up to my word but I also have to acknowledge that I am human. I am thankful that I’ve continued to go this far. What matters is now. What exists is now.
I’m taking it one day at a time but I’m just happy-tired about doing it. I look forward to each session. There were things that I needed to unlearn to understand us. I can’t wait to share what I know to people that I don’t know, foreign or local.
This week, we went to the National Museum and had a guided tour from Felipe de Leon Jr. I have to thank him for the breakthrough of getting a wider perspective about the Filipino. His lectures as a humanist helped me to have a clearer understanding of our heritage. It fuels pride to proclaim the greatness of this race.
I have never been this proud as a Filipino and as I’ve said on Day One, I want to be a positive voice in this country.
I feel so fortunate for this opportunity of unlearning to understand.
