We can all recall a famous line from a well-known coffee brand advertisement — “Para kanino ka bumabangon?”
We often neglect this commercial when we are watching TVs since we have heard it a lot of times. Unknowingly, that one line would be a very difficult question to answer especially when we are our demonstrating fear and anger, or when we are hitting our lowest point and deepest emotion yet no one can see. We already might asked ourselves during those hard times, “What is my purpose to live? What reasons do I have to stand up and keep on fighting?”
We wake up, and we continue to do so, because despite all the bad things that happened, a little spark inside us hopes that tomorrow wouldn’t be as bad as today.
I remember someone telling me that there’s a reason why sunsets are beautiful. Its sparkle is the promise of a better tomorrow.
Everyday, we wake up because deeply in our hearts, we want to be better than what we were yesterday and to be a step closer to our ultimate goals and ambitions. We stand up because it’s a chance of achieving the better world we always dream of having. Although we have mountains to climb, we should believe and remain steadfast because sooner or later, we are all going to reach the top.
