Today is one of the most important days of my life. Today wayback highschool, I won a national contest in journalism. When I won it didn't really matter to me then. It was not that special and I didn't treated it as a big deal. But as the years run through, I just realized how lucky I am looking back. I realized that when I'm into something, that if I'm really really passionate about it and if I put my effort on it, I would be able to gain the fruits of my labor.I use to think that I'm just so lucky to have won different contests. It didn't come up to me like it was given to me because I deserve it or that I was really really good. It was more like a gift given or as if I won in the lottery.
Now I feel that those winnings were given to me, to make me realize that all my effort all through out the years (reading those newspapers and schoolpaper and my fascination with news and current affairs when I was in grade school), has a positive output and it would be rewarded in time. It made me realize that our hobbies and interests are valuable way of spending idle time. It tells me to follow and adhere to what my heart tells me, because for all we know, it is where we can gain success and where we hit the summit of grand achievement.
I realized that not everyone can become a great lawyer or a doctor, or a famous celebrity, or a rich businessmen, but everyone can attain success in their own way and their own right, when they lead the right path that pleases ourselves and the people around us.
