Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!
I’ve got a few questions for you. Have you ever felt having no interest in something that just motivated you before? Have you ever felt no regrets in starting or ending something? Have you ever felt that even though you got no idea what to do next, felt unburden and unconfused?
In my life, three events shaped it as it is, the day I choose to be a father, the day I choose to be separated, and the day I quit my job. Things are tough raising a child, alone, and unemployed but I can’t seem to have any form of regret. My life has been a roller coaster of change.
But before we get to it, I would like to say thank you for the warm support from my previous post. I never expected such a warm welcome for our culture, especially during this difficult time. To all Filipinos out there, I hope I did you proud!
Special shout out to Mary from Facebook, I hope this gets to you! Thank you for your feedback about my writing, which helped in giving me more reasons to write in the future. I hope this simple shout out is enough to brighten up your day! Cheers!

I often say that challenge drives growth, and the more we grow the more we unravel our truest of purpose. Oftentimes the unraveling of those layers brings forth change.
When we’re younger, how many of us dreamed of becoming doctors, or astronauts? Now, how many of us became doctors and astronauts? Those who didn’t, how many of you regretted not being a doctor or astronaut? I’m guessing, not a lot and that is not a bad thing at all.
You see, as we grow we dissolve layers of our purpose much like a snake shedding its skin. We challenge the layers and regardless of its outcome, it becomes undone, dissolved. When I was a boy, I’ve always wanted to be a musician. I wanted to play in a large crowd and be great. When I’m in my late teens, I went to become a musician and performed at any local venue we could manage. Until I wanted to start a family, I quit music, studied programming, got my degree, and worked to support my family. Until I got separated, got custody of my kid and became a working solo dad. Until work got in the way of my ability to take care of a troubled toddler and quit my career as a programmer. I never regret anything, I simply became closer to my truest purpose as I dissolved each layer.
Life is as volatile as it gets yet I am exactly where I wanted to be. I’ve embraced every twist and turn life has to offer and came out truer, be willing to change everything in your life.
To Courage and Freedom and Change
