Journey of My Life

  1. 1. By: Kristine Ann B. de Jesus
  2. 2. Sometimes it is hard to introduce yourself because you know yourself so well that you do not know where to start with. Let me give a try to see what kind of image you have about me through my self-description. I hope that my impression about myself and your impression about me are not so different. Here it goes. I am Kristine Ann B. de Jesus, sixteen years old and a 4th year student of Sorsogon National High School. My friends call me Bestine while my family usually call me Tin-Tin. My parents are Maricel B. de Jesus and Romulo S. de Jesus, Jr. They are both teachers in Casiguran Central School. I only have one younger brother named Christian B. de Jesus , a 2nd year student. My hobbies are Watching Television, Reading Books, Playing Online Games, Surfing the Net, Cooking, Listening to mellow & classical musics and sometimes writing stories. I like watching Korean Movies/Dramas, reading novel books, and love songs.
  3. 3. And then one time, I finally met your Papa in a Teacher's Seminar. He smiled at me which made my heart beats faster. I told to myself that we should became friends. From a simple friendship, We realized that we love each other. I knew in my heart that he was the man I' ve been waiting for all of my life. Since he was also single at that time, he courted me, and we became lovers. But first our relationship was secret cause as you know, your grandparents were so strict. So every time we will have a date, It was a secret. I will just tell my parents that I will just go to my friend's house. But as time goes by, we realized that we were old enough and since your Papa's intention was good, he finally met my parents and he informed them that he wanted to marry me. And after that, my parents met your Papa's parents. Then we settled everything for our wedding.
  4. 4. Everyone said when you are a child, you are having a good happy life and you don't have any problems at all. But I think not all children are so lucky enough to have a happy childhood life experience. Me by my self, I don't want to judge anyone or criticize anybody what's going on about their life but what I'm going to talked here is basic to my true story about my childhood life. Sometimes things happened when you are not expecting it, and you are just asking your self why? Memories of childhood can be represented in many ways: a blanket, stuffed animal, rattle, song, or maybe even a movie. We can cling to these things for support in times of need, or just to recall fond memories of a simpler, and in most cases happier time. As our lives change around us, and we change to adapt to our lives we recall these items. We return to them for comfort, or we pass them to others who need them.
  5. 5. Growing up from the beautiful land of Bicol continues to provide me with fond memories, strong morals, and simple beliefs. It was living a life with an obtainable means, working and playing as a family unit that would attract even the average person, some of these things so many people have long forgotten. To wake up each morning to the sunrise, to lie in bed and listen to all the activity knowing that today, like any other day, will become a challenge that is unexplainable. Excited to meet friends and playmates and just enjoying the day like there is no tomorrow. This is how I describe my life when I was still young and innocent. There are lots of things I really want to try and questions I want to be answered. But still It was a stage of my life that I will never forget in my whole life.
  6. 6. My High School Life I can't believe it has been four years since I met my gorgeous classmates, there has been great and bad memories, my friends and I cried and laughed together, shared each other everything, we are really like one family, when one of us get hurts, have hard times like threats or losing someone close we all feel the pain, cry together and try to be supportive, when we feel that one of our classmates is not able to buy the necessary things and in need, we allocate our saves and buy too expensive gifts for birthday or any occasion without making our friend feel that we are intending to help. When one of us have something pleasant like a party we all feel happy, we help her with choosing clothes make up advice her how to do her hair etc, and even do her homework as she will be busy !! When one of us cant understand a subject all the students try to teach her, repeat the subject over and over till she understands it! The relationship we have is strong, and I wish it'll always remain like this… I'll share you some of my best memories;
  7. 7. One of my best memories was when our class make a surprise party for our adviser Mrs. Clara Hitta in relation with the celebration of the World’s teachers’ day. I thought It would be a simple celebration but it turned out to be a fantastic and a lively party. All of us participated and with some of our saves, We bought a gift for our adviser, wrapped it and took the present to school. Our teacher was shocked, it was the best day ever. Beside all the good events there has been very painful memories, when one of my classmates lost her dad and my other classmate transferred to other school. But, I'll always remember the good events and laugh, and the hard ones will only give me the strength, power and make me prepared for every hard thing I may face in the future Sunshine.
  8. 8. My guiding principle in life is that to live with faith in God, with respect to my parents and obey duties and responsibilities as a child. To live with faith in God, of course every individual should have faith in God. He is the reason of all the success in our life. He is also the reason why we are still living in this world and enjoying our life. That's why in return, we should simply give our unconditional love and care in Him. Also with respect to my parents. By showing my love and care to them. And obey my duties and responsibilities as a child. For Obedience is the greatest virtue and it must be instilled in our little minds. Obedience, to do the right must be followed. I really wanted to finish my studies and help my parents to fulfill their desires. All parent's dream to their children is to finish their studies. For Knowledge is the very important thing in the world that cannot be taken by anyone. And knowledge is the key to everyone's success and a bridge to fulfill our dreams in life. That is why we should study hard and strive high for our own good. At first I really wanted to be a nurse but due to some instances and situations that there are lots of nurse or even the licensed one who has no job, I was encouraged by my parents to just fulfill another course . Until I decided to choose Education. I believe that this will be a great choice since even now, I really enjoy teaching children and even my classmates.
  9. 9. Someday I wanted to be professionally stable and share my talents and serve the community. To be professionally stable in a way of having a professional job so I can provide my needs and to become independent in doing things which I think are right. Also in a way that I can support my family financially so I can return all the things they have given to me and to my brother. To share my talents as one way of helping others especially the students. As what I have promised to my Alma Mater, which is to help others fulfill their dreams in life and to succeed one day. And lastly, To serve the community, to help them grow and become better people, Those who are truly-well-rounded students who are willing to go for excellence, fly high and those who are not afraid to take risk in assuming innovations and challenges in life and to serve God as a YFC by encouraging others even the children to be part of our community and spread their love for God.
  10. 10. Our achievements speak for themselves. However, when it comes to our setbacks, failures and weaknesses, we feel uncomfortable talking about them. All of us have failed at some time to equal our dreams of perfection or to perform well. The big issue is not your weaknesses; they are part of life. I had some experiences in which I was able to face those fears, frustrations, failures and anxieties with the help of my parents.
  11. 11. I was shy, I didn't make a very good first impression and wanted to change this. I noticed that when I spent some time with people, I could open up. People appreciated my sense of humor and trusted me. This gave me the confidence to overcome the problem by taking it head on. My mother and I never saw eye to eye on any issue because we were so different. But some time later when I really felt that I wanted someone to talk to I ask her If I can have some mother and daughter bonding. And to my surprised, she said ok. I had a nice conversation with her for I am not just the one who shared my feelings and emotions but she also shared hers. As we opened our hearts to each other, we realized how similar we really were and how strong she was. It did not take long for me to start admiring my mother. Now she has become a great source of inspiration for me. I understand her so well that I am able to anticipate her response to a situation and act accordingly.
  12. 12. Another experience I had was with my father. I never trusted anyone with anything, so I believed in doing everything myself. I felt others would never measure up to my standards. But a particular situation in my high school life drove me up the wall. I had nearly given up in despair when my father, helped me tide over the situation. I was touched and felt very blessed to have him in my life. That day I resolved to trust others, especially with my friends. My life turned out well for the last three years mainly because of my ability to motivate and trust others, and develop unique solutions through positive interactions with other people.
  13. 13. As a teenager, you may be dealing with lots of emotional highs and lows. One minute you might feel great, and the next you feel sad and tearful. This kind of shift in your moods is normal. Our life is changing, just like our body. These mood swings - sometimes we may be feeling a lot more pressure these days, we are still developing the skills and we need to deal with that pressure. We may be facing added responsibilities at home, tougher grading policies in school and your friends may be changing.
  14. 14. As I grow older I will develop the skills , I need to manage stress, but for now, I will just remember I am in a tough spot and need all the support I can get. I will always reach out to adults and friends for I know that there is always someone there who cares for me and who will encourage me to be best even during hard times. I would say that I am really a human for I can encounter some emotional experiences. I have my moments of happiness, sadness, anger, depression, anxiety and a host of others feelings. Some questions we may ask are how to deal with these emotions and why are some feelings harder to handle than others.
  15. 15. In terms of relationships, Like emotions, everyone has some sort of relationship with other people. Unless we are a castaway on an island, we interact with people everyday. When we say relationship, the very first thing that will come up to our minds in the relationship we have toward opposite sex a(like a boyfriend or girlfriend) but there are lots of relationships all of us have like relationships with God, our parents and friends. I get the blues now and then. But I always think that it is a normal part of life. After a while, the darkness lifts and things start to feel enjoyable again. Sometimes, however, the sadness or loneliness persists, or gets worse, despite all attempts to "snap out of it." Tears or anger come easily and the simplest tasks seem difficult. But I always think and handle things or even problems positively.
  16. 16. In my mind, I always dreamed of having a diploma and attending the graduation. But as time passes by and this moment will come, I feel a little bit nervous and excited. But what I really do is just enjoy the power and beauty of my youth. Looking back at photos of myself when I was a child and innocent and recall the memories I had in a way I can grasp now. I am not worrying about the future. The real troubles in my life are apt to be things that never crossed my worried mind.
  17. 17. These are the things I usually do: Sing. Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours. Floss. Don't waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself. Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults. Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements. Stretch. Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't. Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees. You'll miss them when they're gone.
  18. 18. How I see My Future?! 10 years after……….. I think 80% of what I planned for myself has already achieved. I have already a good career. After so many years of working and journey, I am now a successful individual, who already fulfilled my dreams. I am already working in a hospital or if not, I am working in a company and very privileged to be part of 1 of the great companies in Asia. A woman who already had a strong experiences in life but I know that I still have lots of things to learn and eventually share them to others. I am able to fulfill a promise that I made to my Alma Mater and that is to come back and teach. I am able to serve in Kids For Christ, Youth For Christ and Singles For Christ. I would be so much happy and grateful to be back at my service. Being one of the moderators and still continuing my service to God. I am able to buy all the things I want. I already visited some countries together with my family and relatives and just enjoying my life. And the remaining 20%? What could it be? Maybe a man that I've been waiting for all of my life. A true love that my parents were talking about. And to have my own family. But I am still young, I must enjoy my life of being single. I would be happy for those things and being blessed by God for not everyone was given such blessings.
  19. 19. Obviously, this is the answer for the remaining 20%. Maybe I already met the love of my life, my true love, and were planning to get married. For we already knew each other at that time and we are now ready to share our life with each other and ready to face new challenges in life. Planning for a new beginning as a couple and build our own family. I would still continue serving God well, obviously together with my future husband as Couples for Christ. And I am planning that our children would also be part of our success and eventually our children will also serve God as Kids for Christ and my husband and I will be part of our children's growth.
