The Last Christmas

At one point during our conversation, while we were celebrating my son’s birthday in a private resort, my father said something that I know I already know, but somehow, since that day, it kept on replaying at the back of my mind.

We rented this beautiful place where every corner you go to makes you feel relaxed. It’s like a sudden escape from the everyday hurly-burly of our lives. We were only allowed to stay there for 22 hours. My father said, “It’s good that we know we have limited time to enjoy this because we will appreciate each moment that passes. If we know we have unlimited time to spend here, I’m sure we’ll take this for granted.”

That was so spontaneous and was said at a perfect time that it left a profound impression in my mind. (I haven’t told my father about this yet and he will know once he reads this.)

I think if there’s anything that 2020 made clearer, it is that we all have a limited time on Earth. Life is too short not to appreciate that God allowed us to breathe normally still today. If you know when you would go, wouldn’t you also make the most out of your time left?

Maybe… Just maybe it’ll help you to process your emotions more appropriately whenever you think of the remaining days before the board exams. Instead of panicking, perhaps you can learn to take the countdown as a reminder that no matter what your circumstances are, you are still alive. Being here and having the opportunity to study/prepare for the exams is still a blessing, and that means you CAN always choose to do something today – no matter how little – to improve yourself.

The number of days you see is the number of days left that you do not have the RMT or ASCPi or MD title/s in your names…And in 2021, you are claiming these titles. 💪
No matter who says what, when the Lord decides, HE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN. 🙌
Make today count.

P. S.

Let us declare that this is the last Christmas that you will celebrate without the RMT/ASCPi/MD title/s. The next Christmases won’t be the same. 😉 Padayon.
