These are some of the questions that sometimes pop in my head, it doesn’t mean though that I’m not happy with my life right now, but somehow, I would ask myself “What would my life be if I’m still single? or Will I be happier if I did pursue my dream?”
I was once a young high school student who wants to become a theatre artist. But my parents didn’t agree. Most of us in our family are either a teacher or a soldier. They never thought that I’m going to be an actress someday.
But I still have to move on. I went to college and took a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree until I met my husband. I didn’t get to finish my studies because I became a mother at a very young age. We had children and as they say, the rest is history.
But what if, I did fight for what I wanted? or maybe graduate with a different degree and pursue my dream to become an actress? Maybe, I’m one of those successful actresses known today locally and internationally or maybe not? But what I do believe is this.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
God has plans for me. I’m still thankful for what I had experienced in life because it made me stronger and it made me the person that I am today. I may not be a successful actress but I am a mother, a wife, and a career woman. I can still share my talent with my children and inspire them to be the best version of themselves. I believe that God has a lot more in store for me and one day, I am going to reach my success just like the others.
