“What are the things/situations that would make you feel like levitating?”
There are so many things and situations that will make me feel like levitating. If I have to start when I was little, this post will be a very long one. So maybe, I will just start when I got pregnant with my baby JB. My tummy was three months already when I learned that I am pregnant, I was shocked, emotional and joyous. Even though we (me and the father of my baby) didn’t get married, it didn’t make me lose hope and I took up the challenge of being a single mother. From the time I have learned about my baby’s life inside me, I was levitating with happiness. My baby JB is a blessing from God and he became my lucky charm. Yes, I consider my son as my lucky charm because everything fell into places when he came.
Every night during dinner, I also feel like levitating, because this is where I and my family get to dine together and talk just about anything. We are a typical Filipino family, we tease and we love each other, we are so “lambing” to our parents and siblings that is why even though I have my own business already I still lived with my parents. Every night I am thankful that we are still complete, that we still have each other, and that we are going to face the world’s challenges together. After all, the family is the most basic unit of the society and whatever happens in your life, they are still there, loving you, praying for you, cheering you up.
Seeing my son grow up to be someone who is God-fearing, loving, caring and sweet, with full of hope and determination, it makes me levitate. Having my family, always close to me and though we have encountered so many problems, we never let it broke us apart, it makes me levitate. Being together with my boyfriend who accepts me for who I am, who loves my son and my family as his own, it makes me levitate.
Accepting everything that happens in the world and in my life makes me feel that I am still alive and that God loves me, this makes me levitate.
