Taking Chances

As I look back from the past I got to realize and appreciate a lot of things. Most of those things were when I take the risk and take the chances even if I don’t know where it will lead me. At first, taking chances is too much of a risk and most of the time it is really scary but I can tell you that you will never know what you can and you cannot do unless you take the chance.

I was 12 years old when I grab the opportunity to study in Sister’s of Mary, one of the prestigious schools for high school students which offer a full scholarship program especially for the poor. I took the exam and passed it and for me that was one of my big decision that I never regret. I maybe too young that time but I already took the chance on something that contribute a lot on where I am today. Sister’s of Mary is one of my greatest pillars on whatever achievement I had today. I couldn’t imagine myself with SOM. Will I be like this today if I never took the chance to take that scholarship exam before? Maybe yes and maybe no, but no matter what is the answer I never care less because now I am happy for whatever I achieve and most importantly is that I never had that WHAT IF’s questions in my mind.

Don’t be afraid to take chances especially if your heart says so, but of course learn also on what chances you may take. Be courageous enough but be aware as well.
