I used to evaluate the year by the good and bad it brings. This year, I was true to my promise of just listing down things I'm grateful for every month.
I used to believe in this saying 100%. I realized now that it also has a flaw. This is applicable only to things that you, at the least, 80% like. If you take chances that you don't like, it might just be a reason to regret in the future. You'd "become the adult you don't' want to be". Therefore, this saying does not correlate to, "Take all the chances you can get".
Yesterday's visit to the cemetery wasn't as hard as I expected it to be. Maybe because 3 years had already passed since Nate left. People still ask what happened every time they pass us by. They still feel bad that such a young and beautiful angel left. I no longer feel bad. I probably got used to it too. Do you remember we had that World Heart Day Celebration at the Oupost last month? I was supposed to be the last sharer of story but we ran out of time.
This was presented during our Graduation Exam on October 3 year 2013 for our High Impact Presentation class. I am not the owner of the content of the speech. The objective is to only judge how well the message and goals were presented to the audience. The goal is to give a High Impact Presentation. At the end of the class, a Best Presenter was chosen. Guess who? Ehem! Ehem!... Thank you :)
I enjoyed the class very much. If you ever find one available, make sure to grab the opportunity and enroll.
