I am not ready...yet

If you were to be asked, are you ready for everything that might get to you? What if tomorrow, you'll be kicked out from work? What if the other day you are not as efficient as you are today? What if you will wake up one day and feel like you're unhappy and you can't redeem yourself from the devouring sadness? Are you prepared how to conquer them?

Are we really ready all the time? Because if I were to be asked, I am not ready....yet.

They said it's our responsibility to be prepared for we don't know what happens tomorrow. Yes, that's right. That's the best thing we can do as humans because we cannot predict what's in our tomorrow nor decide what we can be when that time comes. What if tomorrow never comes? Can you sleep with all your might knowing that you can't wake up the next day? Perhaps you will spend your remaining time thinking how to mend those faults you did to your parents and to people around you. Your time is limited and so you get going to fix everything because we thought that would make us at peace and it's our gate pass to what we called heaven. What do you think? Because for me, the days we are living and how we spent them are the real bases of what we truly are. Our last moment here on earth can't save us. Moreover, let us live everyday being kind to every creature and live with what we called humanity.

If tomorrow never comes,

are you ready? Because I am not ready...yet. Not ready because I know there are many things I should do and yet because I know I will be ready someday. I must be.

My family also needs me and leaving them behind knowing they're not in the state I want them to be is disappointment. I don't want to bring disappointment with me in the afterlife.

One thing that I am not ready with is having my own family. I mean, I am okay with having a partner living with me but having a child I need to take care of, I don't know. I can't imagine myself walking in the street carrying a child and my friends would greet me and ask how did it happen. I hate being questioned and I hate explaining.

Ever since, I didn't think of having a child not until I reach 30. My plan is to have a child at 30 but some say it would be hard for me to bear a child with that age. They are right but I have my own plans. They can suggest but not to the point that they sound like correcting. I am open to suggestions. I just don't want anyone to make feel like my decisions are poor and I need to follow what's theirs.

I am not yet prepared to give up my single life. I mean I still do want to earn and travel with friends, to go with different restaurants, meet different people, go to different parties and get drunk or wasted. I still want to be with friends rather than to stay home and build my own.

My family still needs me as well. I can tell my grandma and grandpa doesn't want me to have a family yet or maybe they don't want me to get married. My grandma used to tell me before that I should not get married because life would be different when I'm already in it. She said I could get old fast because I have lots of things to think of -- the food, bills, my husband's vices if there will be any, kids and the household. My grandma is right but I think she just told me those because she doesn't want me live separately from them. She's not yet ready to see me build my own family when ours dreams are not yet realized. My grandpa thinks of that too. One time we had an argument about my boyfriend because my grandpa doesn't like seeing me so close with him. When my boyfriend was away, he confronted me if I want to get married already with his voice in a high tone. Of course, I got angry with the way he approached me and so we had an argument which led me not to talk with him for a year.

I just realized that my grandparents are not ready and so am I too.

But what if one day God bestow me things I am not yet ready with? Would I be able to manage?

I am not sure but all I can say is, I am not ready...yet.

How about you? What if your fears will be right in front of you when you wake up? Are you ready to face the things that you're not yet ready with?

This one makes me think about things, cause for me I will never be ready for anything, I just want to go with th flow, life is full of surprises and one thing I'm sure of is I will never be ready but if it came to me without warnings I'm willing to face it no matter what, being ready is good but imagine you surpass something even when you were not ready, and after that, in that exact moment, you will just realized that you're ready.

We will not be always ready but the thing with us humans is that we always find ways to cope up somehow. Even when we think or feel we cannot do anything but when we're at the crossroads, we always find a way to get pass it.

Same as you ra sad memsh. Dli pako ready ug parehas rasab na rason sa imuha nganu. Maybe the only difference is because I have not fulfill my promise to my parents yet. And I don't want to disappoint them.

We do have a different outlook in life and w should respect each other in that area..having a child or not at a young or mature age is up to you and no one gonna question that. the decision will be up to you only and they should respect that as for me on the question of God bestows me things I am not yet ready for?I guess I would say yes. God will not give me challenges that He know I can't surpass and when He instate He equips all we need is to trust in His process

I easily get disappointed when my expectations fail. That's why if possible, I don't expect things, just going with the flow. Am I ready? did not ask myself about that, but have believed that things happen in God's perfect time, that's why ready or not, we need to accept it..
