Like a Mona Lisa Smile
“She is smiling. Is she happy?”
-Betty Warren in Mona Lisa Smile
I am trying to put a brave face amidst this problem that has been disturbing me for a week. Along with it, I’m struggling to surpass this alone. It is not for anything else that I am keeping it. It is in many instances that I was tempted to tell mama and close friends about this. It is hard to keep something within and still smile when situations call for it. However, I kept myself from disclosing it. If there was someone whom I tried to confide and cry this out, it was Him.
I prayed unceasingly for a solution that I see fit to solve it. My parents taught me that when you pray, do it with utmost confidence. I admit, even to Him, that it was hard for me not to feel doubtful. It is like walking in the thin air. You are buoyant but you do not see what is keeping you up.
I was not led in the way that I prayed it to be. But it doesn’t mean that I’m ruined. The way He thinks is unfathomable and I don’t have any right to question His wisdom for leading me here. I know, He is testing the little faith that I have. I am not strong. I am still learning to praise Him in spite of pain, to thank Him during trial, to trust Him when lost and to surrender while suffering. Maybe this is the reason why I tried to cry but not a drop fell.
I am smiling despite the pain, but I can say, I am happy.
|Ma. Veronica Sheena Valencia de Gonzales y Tan de Prieto. That is the FULLEST of my name, no less. Unless I'd
be indolent to write, then that will be Sheena Valencia, and that's how my name goes in school, everywhere!...Sinking in historically, I was born by the date of July 28 and I'm 16. It
was Makati Medical Center who witnessed the 1st sign of my breathing. Now I'm here in flesh at Las Piñas to continue the journey of my life. It's not perfect...but it's great!
I love writing. Although I must admit that I'm not that splendid. I love blogging, chatting, reading- and I don't mean textbooks-
speaking- or if you mean orating, well fine!- and sleeping! (Well, actually all of these and more are written down there , so I need not elaborate.) Aesthetically, I'm pretty fine as well as emotionally. Now, sinking in personally. I'm erratic and
aggressive but patient. I'm a comic and I love to laugh but I have exceptions. I'm driven by moods of others but I always try not to be. I want justice incessantly but I must admit that sometimes I'm biased. I'm naughty but I know how to follow. If I seem to be dark and sinister...don't be anxious...there are tons (and majority) of my being is angelic.
Currently, I'm a senior- and my height doesn't say so!- highschool student of St. Joseph's Academy and I'm enjoying it! Soooo much! It's superb! There are fuss and flaws but really, it's Supercalifragilistic Expialidocious! BUT on the looming AY to come, I will be
in college! Burden is- I don't want to leave SJA so soon! Can I (and we) just repeat? *scowls
(Inserted: Aug. 12, 06)But...that current up there is archaic because at this point, I'm already in college at De La Salle University- Dasmariñas. Meaning, the dream of repeating will just be a dream and will never come true because I'm already here. And I must enjoy what I have because there will be no turning back since I have decided to say everytime I fall, "Standout Josephian!" What a smile it brings me...
...I go by...
