Day 2: Something You Feel Strongly About

“Never letting the competition define you. Instead, you have to define yourself based on a point of view you care deeply about.”
-Tom Chappel 

to be honest, i feel strongly about many many things. but one thing i feel really strongly about is that i really don’t like people who always say: aiyaa its because of fate thats why things suck for me/i have no life/i hate my family etc.

to be honest, i believe we are the hands that control our own destiny. true, we can’t control what life throws at us. but we can control how to deal with the pain, the trials and how we can either sulk about it, let someone else clear it up for you, or you can take the bull by the horns, and conquer it, learning something new.

Personally being a christian, i fully believe in two things:

  1. Everything has a season. there will be seasons of droughts and cold dry winter, and there will be seasons of fruitfulness. its like. the circle of life kind of thing. we need the four seasons (or two in SG’s case) but there is a time and place for everything.
  2. Everything bad that happens, only happens when God allows it to. and when God allows it to, it means that the trial is there to mould us to be better people. which is why after so much has happen, up till now, i have not lost my faith in God.
We go through the fire to come forth as gold. this is one phrase that i have heard over and over again during service, and it never fails to bring me back up, despite every single setback i have had this year. 
“Fire is the test of gold; adversity, of strong men.” Seneca
