Everybody will die, one way or another. Unless you’re one of the Cullens, then maybe you can stay on this planet for centuries. (Not that I am a fan. I have watched the movies, just because.) As for day 23’s topic, I had to think of a way in which I want people to remember me by. At first, I thought it would be something written in my tombstone. But then again, I don’t even know what should or would be written on my tombstone come my judgement day. I don’t really know how my friends and family would remember me once I depart from this world. I wouldn’t also know what words will be described of me when that happens.
In my 26 years in this world, I know I have lived my life. But I know that I still have a lot to learn and I still have a loooooong way to go (I am not going anywhere! Not yet!). I know I have given my genuine self to my friends, family and loved ones. I do hope they remember me the way I see my self:
As a thoughtful and loving daughter… Because in spite of being stubborn (which is most of the time as they would say), I like making them feel important and loved by yours truly. I love planning surprises for them, and I like to spoil them. I have my own way of making them know that I love them even though I tend to go against them (which is quite often as well). Hahaha.
As a loving, understanding, patient, faithful and loyal wife… Because I promised to give my self fully to my husband, in front of God, for better or for worst, til death do us part. ♥
As a nurturing and protective mother to my future children… Because I know I will do my best to be a good mother. I have envisioned myself to be completely hands on my children, involved in their lives and guide them through life as much as I could.
As a sweet grand daughter… Because I grew up with my grand parents (Mom’s side), I have a soft spot for old people. I love my Mama so much, and if I could make her stay forever, I would.
As a shoulder to lean on or cry on… Because even though I am not an expert in solving problems, I am always ready to lend an ear and a shoulder for a friend. I am not a psychology graduate, but I try my best to understand and use my instinct to offer an advise. Bombard me all you want, I won’t give up on you. 🙂
As a forgiving person… Because I can’t stand having enemies. I don’t want any issues spoiling my relationships especially with relatives. Blood will always be thicker than water. Understanding is my most powerful weapon. And I don’t hold grudges.
As a generous person… Because as long as I can manage, I will always be willing to share.
As a loyal friend… Because I have plenty of friends and I can say I am their “bra” — their supporter. Hahaha. No matter how far apart we are, or how long it has been since we spoke, I don’t forget a friend. 🙂
As a host… Because I love hosting get togethers and parties at home. I love preparing and welcoming my friends at home. I like making them comfortable enough to let them be and leave them in our house without worrying.
As a playful, happy and crazy girl… Because despite of being a married, 26 year old woman (can’t believe I’m calling myself a woman now), there is still a child in me. I love making my friends, and even my parents, laugh because I like seeing them happy. And just because I am married and in my mid 20’s doesn’t mean I don’t know how to have fun (good and clean, of course).
As a believer of God… Because I take my strength from Him. No matter how strong I think I am or how strong people think I am, I breakdown once in a while. God is still the greatest source of strength. And my friends and family are His instruments sent to my rescue here on earth.
I am not perfect, and nobody is. This is me, my friends and family knows that. I have made mistakes, asked for forgiveness, and learned. People may say different things about me, and I will never know. But this is me. I guess I’ll just let life take its course and let my obituary be a suspense for the meantime. I am in no hurry, anyway.
