I’m not good at anything, I have no talent to show. When I was a kid I ask my mother, mom why I don't have a talent ?
My mother replied that I'm still young. My teacher said when you grow up, you can discover your talents and skills where you are good at. Every year I'm getting older yeah I'm older now but still I haven't discovered where I'm good at.
At school whenever there is an activity such as dancing or singing during "Foundation Day" and P.E subject. I was so nervous and embarrassed because I'm not good in dance and singing. All I can do is to give my best for the grade. Even though they laughed at me they called me a robot or a tree.
"Parang katawan ng puno na nakatayo lang".Because my body is not flexible and difficult to dance some dance steps.
I need to sing and stand in front of my classmates and teacher for the plus points in my index card. Another embarrassment during grade 7 in our math subject. I sang "Patuloy ang Pangarap" by Angeline Quinto "that's the only song I memorized because that's our Graduation song in my elementary. My classmates and our teacher laughed at me because of my ugly voice. I almost cried because of embarrassment that time.
I'm not into sports I remember we had activities in our P.E we played volleyball, basketball, and more. I'm scared to play volleyball should I say I'm scared to the ball what if my face hit the ball? it's painful right. I was so coward and don't know how to serve the ball, and the position of the hand. When I saw the ball flying and coming to my direction. Oh! goodness I closed my eyes or go to the other direction to avoid the ball !! I was embarrassed and asked for apology to my teammates because of me we got a low score.
"Grabing katangahan talaga ang pinaggagawa ko natatawa na lang ako pag naalala ko yan"
My friends help me they are kind, we bought a ball for volleyball every Saturday they visited in our house so that we can played volleyball. Since my one friend she is a volleyball player, she taught me some techniques and the right thing in playing of it. After that, I observed myself that I'm improving I'm not scared to the ball when we are playing, I did not avoid the ball. I faced it with confidence I said "Mine" then I hit the ball to the opponent.
Now I'm old enough I realize many things that I don't need to be the best in everything. As long as I work hard and "madiskarte" I can stand in this world. I accept myself and think how blessed I'am , I'm happy and blessed with the everything I had especially to have a family. I need to focus on my studies than thinking on other things and I do the things where I’m interested in.
Yesterday my sister asked my mother with the same question "Mom, why I don't have a talent? I don't know how to dance my mother answered:
it can be learned if you don't know how to dance then learn how to dance and work for it and the skills is can be learn. If you have a courage to learn then work hard.
Nakita ko ang aking kapatid na nag tiktok nag practise siya ng mga dance step may activity kasi siya sa isang subject na about dance.Habang pinanod ko siya I realize ayus din pala ang tiktok when you want to learn how to dance. Kaya sumali din ako. (hehe)
