You Might Lose Something Good. But You'll Gain Something Better

Moment in the Park

Adulting taught me so much about life. About how things work in a volatile environment and in a never-ending struggle. About how to stay afloat despite adversities.

Over the years, I have learned to live independently, struggled to find my right place in this world, stumbled on too many mishaps, did terrible decisions, done too many "stopovers".

But through all these mishaps, I developed my wisdom. I learned how to understand life better, and in the correct perspective.

At the end of the day, things are all about myself. How I would  react to the inconveniences and how I would pick up myself and start all over again, decide the fate of my journey.

It's all about mindset and concept of life. And I'm always fascinated with new beginnings. One day, things will get better and those dark alleys I traversed will be eventually things of the past.

I always emerged victorious because I don't hang around with failures. I viewed it as wisdom to sort out things in my life and graces to learn and live by.

So I'm inviting everyone to ponder on the concept of life, on the story of new beginnings and on facing challenges and making crucial decisions in life.

It's not really super hard to understand God's message. We only need to open our heart and mind to understand His will and purpose why certain events needed to occur.

It might be hard to grasp, it might be difficult to understand, but sometimes failing is a gateway to a. wonderful beginning, to a beautiful path of success.  It could be a  message of a fresh start.

So do not be afraid to try. The only way to recognize God's gift is to accept the challenge of walking in the unknown path and discover what is there. Try and don't be scared. 

Life  is all about faith. It's all about courage walking in the right direction. And most of all, it's all about taking risks to fulfill dreams and move forward to reach the place where God wants us to be.

We should never be afraid of failures, of life's challenges because it helped us open our eyes to a myriad of possibilities to live a fulfilling life and achieve our goals.

If we don't take chances, we will never know what we might be getting and gaining as we move forward in life. We might end up losing everything if we are always scared to try.

Life is all about courage.

Indeed, when God closes doors, He opens windows. Sometimes big windows to see and appreciate life's greatest miracles.


I've witnessed it so many times in my life. And I always emerged triumphant because I take risks. I invested so much in my strength and perseverance because if I wouldn't do it, no one will ever do it for me.

So today I'm in my most calmest. I see God's miracles and understand His message. I feel lucky.

Such a wonderful time to be grateful despite living in a difficult time due to pandemic. I have so many reasons to be thankful, so many reasons to celebrate life.

Taking one day at a time

I still see goodness in the environment despite the health crisis gripping the world.

I figured, I cannot change the world today, but I can change my mindset and my concept of living to survive the crisis.

And just when I thought life is hard and harsh, I received a tremendous blessing in the middle of pandemic. God, indeed, bestowed precious gifts  to people who persevere, to those who wait patiently.

His power and will are beyond the pain of difficult times. God is so good, He only delays things but He never forgets!

My mantra in life is always "don't be afraid to make decisions to change direction in life". Wonderful things come at the end of your comfort zone.

If you don't take risk, you'll never know what awaits you on the other side of the road. You will never know what wonders lay ahead.

It is just a matter of courage. Trust me.

The only thing that stopping you from reaching your dreams is your fear of losing the battle, your fear of facing challenges, your idea of failures and your concept of bad beginnings. 

Do not be afraid. Life is all about taking risk. It is all about facing your fear. You might lose something good but you'll gain something better.

It happened to me lately. 

I was so afraid I would end up a loser for giving up my job in the time of pandemic. So scared to accept that I failed because I hate failing. 

The idea of failure has frightened me to the core and I almost regretted everything. I kept blaming myself for many things, for my inept decision-making and the bad timing that came along with it. 

I began to hate the environment and the people. I stopped talking to some and detested everything. But then the miracle happened.

Indeed, God has better plans for our lives. His master plan is always powerful than the human brain. And His goodness is infinite. 

Taking big steps in life entails risk. It is not just walk in the park. It requires courage, endurance, patience, strength, strong faith and determination. And unique abilities to understand God's message and wisdom to recognize it.

My sacrifices paid off. Thank God for the gift of wisdom and patience.

These motivational words always serve as my guide, keeping me up:

1. In the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take and the decisions we take too long to make - Lewis Caroll
3. It's better to try and fail than never trying at all.
4. If you want change. Go for it. Take a risk. Don't play it safe, or you'll die wondering.

Many times in my life I let go of the things I thought were good, but in return, I always get something better in return. 

And many times also that I got out of my comfort zone to try something new, to get what I wanted and to follow my dreams, and many times the chances I took always paid off.

So my words for everyone is that, do not be afraid to make decisions, even the most scary one, be courageous enough to face the challenges in life, it will take you to the place meant for you to live. 

For all the challenges I took in life, I  finally got the wisdom and lesson now: Wonderful things come at the end of your comfort zone. You will never know what awaits you on the  other side of the road if you won't take a chance.



In the end, we will only regret the chances we did not take and all the decisions we take too long to make, according to Lewis Caroll.

Life will always take us to the place where we meant to grow as a person, where we meant to live.

The only things that keeping us away from realizing it is our fear of failing and the thoughts of inconveniences. 

William F. O'Brien once said: It's better to try and fail than never trying at all.

So, do not be afraid to take risks. It's just a matter of courage. Take chances in life, you never know what awaits you towards the end of the road. It might be the opportunity you've been praying for so long.

Remember this wisdom: If you lose something good, you will end up getting something better. Because life is generous.

Trust me. It's true. Been there. Done that.
