Make This Count

June 15, 2019



It's the 6th month of 2019, and I have been seeing a lot of post about encouraging people to live the rest of this year with nothing but a goal to be happy. 

Make this count.

Time had passed and we barely noticed that we are already on the second quarter of this year. It seemed only like yesterday that we had the 2018 Christmas. It seemed like it was only yesterday when we welcomed this year with a bang. (I hope you did) And usually, we take the pressure on doing something great when it is almost the end of the journey. Didn't you notice that? Because I did. 

To be honest with you, the source of my usual episodes is this. I always worry that I am running out of time doing nonsense things when I could be doing something extraordinary with my life. Something that I will remember for the rest of my life, without any regrets because I have lived the most amazing days of it. It is tiring, you know - worrying. It is scary and tiring. But this is the reason I wanted to keep on going. 



Worry, my love. And then make this count. 

In the last years, I have been worrying so much because I have lost track of my old plans. Graduate at 21, open up my business as soon as possible, get married at 25, and have my little happy family at 27. Guess what? I am nowhere near that plan. I am almost 25, no business, no family to build, nothing. And this scares me. I thought I had life figured out, but it turns out that the universe has a different plan for me. 

Maybe at 25, I am not supposed to get married because I am supposed to discover new passion and love for the things I never knew existed before. Maybe at 25, I am not supposed to get my life together because it will lead me to unveiling what the world has to offer. Maybe at this age, I am supposed to travel, see the beauty of this world, and then just enjoy every bit of it. Maybe at this age, I am not supposed to have life figured out and that's okay. 



Just make this count. 

It is the second quarter of this year, and are you anywhere near your goals? If you are, congratulations. And if you're not, I hope you continue to live each day with faith in your heart that you are exactly where you needed to be. Exactly where God and the universe had planned it all out for you.

Second quarter. And I hope you enjoy every bit of this journey. After all, this is not about the destination but rather the adventure that you're about to discover along the way. 

Life is not a race, just continue to move at your own pace. Who knows, you are just one step forward to seeing what's there waiting for you. 

Just stay, and continue to fight. 
And then make this count.
