Not to Be Busy but Productive
By Michael Jake Arcilla
Christopher Robbins said this to Pooh, “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” This is one of the most touching messages in the book by A.A. Milne, author of Winnie the Pooh. Every time I see struggles, I always repeat this to myself to remind me of how beautiful my journey has become because of the problems I faced in life.
One day, we will all become triumphant.
So, stand tall in times of difficulties.
In times of weakness, believe that you can be tough.
When you feel weary, know that there is always a helping hand to carry you through.
In times of uncertainty, hold on to your faith and believe that you are stronger than your fears.
And when you make mistakes, remember that life offers second chances to those who deserve it.
Hold on and don’t lose hope. Because amidst all the noise, the pain, and the struggles, life is beautiful. La vita è bella!
