All my life I’ve been a logical thinker. There were times where I considered certain decisions because my emotions but in the end logic always won..
I always thought charity and giving back was a waste of time. Owe it to my pessimistic nature, or call it selfish, but I felt that the human race was full of more bad people than good people. I felt that giving back was a waste because our world is turning to crap and my priority should be myself because it made no sense to get on a sinking ship.
Now, as I volunteer for things and help raise money for charity. Now, as I’m a contestant of the Miss Guam World pageant, I’m starting to realize just how great it feels to give back. I feel that I am growing as a person, and for the better. I’ve always enjoyed helping people but only if it was reciprocated. I always had the mentality: “scratch my back twice and I’ll scratch yours once…maybe.” I never had blind faith in people. But as time goes on and as I feel myself getting wiser, more caring, more compassionate, I realize that there is so much good in people. There are reasons to have faith in giving back and helping others. Although our world is really in the crapper right now, there is still some light to salvage.
Lesson learned these past two months?
Give as much as you can. Forgive as fast as you can. Grow and learn as much as you can. Don’t let any one take your right to be happy. There will be so many things that will come your way and ruin things…and that is because it is so easy to be miserable in this world. You should know that happiness is never a destination! Even though it isn’t easy to achieve, seize any opportunity to smile. Embrace your ups and downs but come back up no matter what. It IS easier to be unhappy, yes, but you shouldn’t chose to be like that! Ultimately it is your choice what you choose to do..but everybody deserves sunshine. Everybody. Even if it isn’t thought by one single person. And in return when you do get to that moment of happiness..be sure to share it. And as corny as this whole thing sounds..Happiness, is SOOOo easy to share. =)
