Bucket List

I grew up from a poor family back in Cebu, Philippines. My father died 10 days after my 7th birthday from a motorcycle accident near our home.

Life is hard back then, but our mother made sure me and my little brother would still be able to reach our dreams despite our situation. She is a real-life hero.

To be able to experience the things I've experienced now is considered a luxury. I am immeasurably grateful to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for all the wonderful things He has and will continue to do in our lives.

 "He cares for the orphans and widows"
~Psalm 146:9

We only get to live one life and I'm determined to live mine without regrets. Don't be afraid to take risks and step beyond what's comfortable. Never stop dreaming.

No one is too old or too young to believe. The circumstances surrounding you, negative or not, aren't hindrances to the destiny God has placed in your heart.

I was a dreamer back then and I'm still a dreamer up until now. I will only ever stop dreaming until I go back home to be with my Savior's loving arms.
