Yesterday while I was surfing the net, I saw this post going around Tumblr. It was a blog entry from a girl named Alejandrina, a 16 year old Junior high student. Her post is very simple yet very very much inspiring. She didn’t use any highfalutin words to make her blog post sound convincing nor did she exaggerate any detail of it. She kept it as plain and simple as she can. Her words were soft and gentle but very direct. Every single word was a piece of jewel worth keeping.
As I was reading through her entry, I can hear a very sweet and innocent voice speaking to me. I felt genuine happiness and joy come out of those words she wrote. Her courage and her positive outlook in life made me admire her so much and continuously glued my attention to her story. She treats life in every positive way she could and I can see that she lives her life to the fullest with complete trust in the Lord and makes it a point that she finds happiness in every situation she gets. Her story is truly inspiring. Everything she said was actually true. We have to love whatever God has given us and we have to be really thankful for everything that we have. It’s all about being contented and being happy with whatever we were blessed with.
Alejandrina was right when she said that we should be happy with our bodies, our homes, our cars and our everything cos other people out there have worse situations than we can imagine. Also, she was indeed right to say that everyone of us are amazing, beautiful, gorgeous, breath-taking and wonderful; we truly have a lot to thank God for. I admire her strength, her love for God and her faith in God for having to stand firm for these things are NOT as easy as said. I can’t help but write about her and her entry because I was personally struck by her words and by her views in life. Her words seemed like diamonds — worth treasuring, worth keeping.
This is her, her blog entry and the link to her Tumble-log. Have a peek, its worth 2-mins of your time. 🙂 Much love. ♥
When I see girls in their bathing suit, I’m happy for them.
When I see girls drive when they’re young, I’m happy for them.
When I see girls walking with their boyfriends, I’m happy for them.
Sometimes, I wish I was like them…
My name is Alejandrina. I’m one in every 500,000.
That’s me in my favorite dress.
I’m tiny. Less than 3 feet tall.
I have a cleft palate, makes my voice sound cute.
I wear braces on my feet, only to balance if I want to dribble a basketball.
I can walk. I have an electric wheelchair for better mobilization.
I call it, My PurpleBulldozer.
My feet look cool, like a dinosaur.
Every once in a while, I have slight hearing problems.
I have scoliosis.
My hands are the HitchHiker type.
My tummy has scars.
I have had many surgeries.
Even after all this-
I want people to understand how amazing and fortunate you truly are.
People out there have it worse. Worse than you and me.
Be happy for the Life you are living.
Be happy for your body.
Be happy for your car.
Be happy for your home.
Happiness is not a destination.
It’s a way of Life.
So be it.
Everyone is absolutely

Every single one of them.
