Life Is Like That

A homeless 13-year-old Filipino won a very prestigious award for his commitment to improving the lives of fellow street kids. Cris “Kesz” Valdez, who lived off a trash dump and slept in an open tomb for the majority of his childhood, was awarded last year’s International Children’s Peace Prize in The Hague on September 19, 2012. 
 
Gifts of Hope
For his seventh birthday, Kesz didn’t want any presents for himself. Instead, he wanted to give something to other street children: Gifts of Hope. That same year, Kesz started his own organization, Championing Community Children, aimed at giving street children hope and showing them that they can take their future into their own hands.

To me “forward” has become a dear word lately, last year my “seems to be perfect life” has changed forever I lost all my references point and I was lost!

Going forward seemed to be impossible, but even if I had to destroyed myself before, then I understood that is so important to move forward anyway…
Although it is not easy to see it immediately, no matter what happens to us, we can still draw lessons and get benefit for ourselves even in difficult moments… but above all, I knew and found out that everything you have (or believed to have)  is not important as yourself!

It is a “duty” we owe to ourselves but also a pleasure because life, although it’s not always “rainbows and unicorns”,
is wonderful and we have to be willing to give us day by day discover all the new experiences that are round the corner waiting for us to move a step forward!
