I always wanted to be in politics. That is my dream ever since I started climbing up the stage to campaign for my father’s candidacy. Ever since my childhood years, I already felt the passion to serve my constituents through the political arena. They say that it’s in the blood, politics runs in our blood.
And I guess I had proven this right when, five years ago, I ran for a government position representing the youth. It was my sole decision to run for that. I seek my parents for advice. Though my mom was against it, I still pushed for it knowing that my dad’s supporting my candidacy anyway. I ran. And I lost. It was very painful for me knowing that I had good intentions for the youth. I must say that I had great plans for my fellows, but it all halted when I lost.
At that time, I felt so much betrayed by everyone, especially by my friends who initially expressed their support for me and suddenly withdrew it at the very last minute for some practical reasons.
I thought it was the end of the world when I lost. I thought I had no more purpose in life so why live anyway? Good thing I had my family with me to console me every time I felt like crying. My father always told me that God has perfect plans for me ahead that’s why He didn’t allow me to win. I continued with my life, years went by, and I realized that after that defeat, here I am, and I am still here, much stronger than before and will be very ready to conquer the world very soon.
To my friends, I thought it was through but I practically understand them why they did that.
Had I invested my everything on it, I would not have survived this far. That was only my first battle and I know there are still many more battles to come that I shall conquer. Had I placed all my eggs in one basket, I would have rotten and not endured. Good thing I still have fresher and newer eggs that are placed in different baskets. I realized that forever I shall keep and abide the quote: Do not put all your eggs in one basket or else you’ll forever regret it.
