Mistakes Made Miracles

Yesterday, on Father’s Day, which was supposed to be a happy day, I accidentally cracked the router to our internet, causing Dad to really get angry. And since it was Father’s Day, of course, I felt really guilty about starting that morning on a reeeeaaaally bad foot.

Time is a precious gift that God has given us. We must not waste a single hour, minute, or even a single second of it. What happens after that second passes, no one really knows.

Then Saturday came. Mom wanted to visit him, […]

May 12, 2017: Determination

Many people struggle with determination due to laziness and other problems, but mostly laziness, which I suffer from as well. I mean, wouldn’t it be a better life for us if we have everything we need for the rest of our lives and all we have to do is lie down and do nothing? Except that we humans don’t. We have to work to earn money to survive in the “real world” as humans put it. Now my problem is […]
