The ESPIRITU Family : One in Love One in Spirit
|Flashback Friday The Picture Company 2009|
"As you get older you find out that true happiness is not in how much you make or how many degrees you have or how big your house is or how fancy your car is. It's finding peace and joy and a calmness in your life that will soon become the most important thing to you. Your family are what matters to you. Things that are of quality, not of quantity."
My family is not perfect, we have our flaws too.
Rochie, Japs and me is so lucky because our parents believes that we are a strong woman.
They give us advise us but they let us decide on our own.
Here's the best advice they gave me:
- "Anak, kapag nadapa ka... matuto kang tumayo... Kaya mo yan! Pinaaral at pinalaki ka naming matapang at handang humarap anuman ang pagsubok. Makakaya mo yan, nandito kaming pamilya mo."
- "Lovers leave and friends will let you down, but your family... we are always here for you."
- "STRESSED? Tanggalin mo yan sa buhay mo! baliktarin mo, gumawa ka ng DESSERT para sumaya naman ang life mo"
- "Anak, focus. do what makes you happy. Follow your heart but use your brain!"
And my favorite ADVICE:
"Anak, kapit lang. Kumapit ka sa Panginoon. Kaya yan, basta kapit lang."
To Papa Freddie and Mama Sally,
Thank you for being our parents.
We love you so much!
For those of you who are reading this, tell your parents how much you appreciate and love them.
Life is too short.
