I have to praise you

We’ve come a long long way together,
Through the hard times and the good,
I have to celebrate you baby,
I have to praise you like I should
– Fatboy Slim, Praise you

Today as I was walking back from CCD to office I saw a bus go by and i thought of my past. I was telling my colleague – there was a time when i traveled in a bus like that. And she said – That’s why, today, you are traveling in a Tavera to office.

And I realized..There are so many things I have been through. I used to walk up a kilometer and a half  to the bus stand. And today if I am going by a Tavera or a cab to office it’s because I have come this far.

I must have been the only kid in the world to keep a novel over her economics book to prove she wasn’t studying while she actually was!

I have held on and paid my dues. I am a fighter and I have come this far. And I am *not* gonna let some ex who wanted a barbie doll for a gf or some guy who’s frustrated with his life, get to me.

‘cos when it comes to me, honey, there are lines you cannot cross.

This one’s dedicated to the fighter. Truly takes one to know one.
