Give Your Best So There’s No Regrets
Life for me is like a song where there are high and low notes. There are times that you will feel very high because of happiness and also there are times that you will feel low that everything seems wrong: you will feel helpless and you will lose your enthusiasm. I know many of us encounter this situation like I do.
A few years ago, I had an opportunity to be part of a play and while we were rehearsing, they saw a possibility for me to play an important character that could give me a good exposure to the show. I really got excited about it because it was a challenge and also an honor to play somebody who’s well loved. I studied the character and my director was very helpful. There was also a cast member who helped me in order to portray the role. I had a great time studying it. The director tried me for it, but in the end, guess what? I didn't get the role. I missed the chance. I was sad of course because the coveted role was at the palm of my hands but I lost it.
Later I was able to accept it because I've realized that it was just a role. I was still part of the show, I also realized that there were a lot of things for me to learn as an actor. I had friends in the production team that helped my stay to be memorable. I also realized that I gave my best for the role. although it wasn't fit for me, but there was no regrets.
All of us have different realities in our lives. Maybe like in a song the note is low: with our families, friendships, jobs etc. But I believe that amidst these trials that we are facing, we must give our best in facing these challenges. We must continue to strive to overcome these difficulties. And hopefully, because of perseverance, our lives will be like a beautiful song that not only can make us happy, but also others. Let us strive to be always hopeful and do not forget to call on to God who loves and cares for us. Let us give our best to so there’s no regrets. God bless you.
