Here’s To Us

March 20, 2013


This note is for all the champions… The survivors. The gamechangers. The doers (not just the talkers). The history-makers. The kingdom-builders. The die-hards. The movers and shakers. The people who keep trying, keep dreaming, keep hoping, keep praying, keep smiling.

This is for the hero or heroin that is rarely celebrated. Here’s a much deserved “thank you” to the men and women who keep waking up day after day to go to work to provide for their families without complaining. This is to our parents for everything they have done for us, though we sometimes messed up. Here’s to that student that’s been waking up extra early to take the bus, to make it to school on time… Here’s to you for keeping your dream alive, for not giving up, for staying true to the calling on your life- don’t you dare give up!

Cheers to us, because we have not given up on love. With many mistakes made along the way, we have learnt… we soldier on, we smile, we laugh, and we dance. Here’s to the people who still believe love is possible, though heartbroken, we know greater things lie ahead.
Here’s to the superstars who take the time to empower others, the stars who take the time to motivate, inspire and mentor others. We love you, we celebrate you, we cherish you.

Here’s to the guy who has been true in his relationship, no two-timing ways, no lies, no drama, no stress. This note is dedicated to the lady who is saving herself for marriage, the lady who carries herself with pride and dignity, the lady who refuses to rely on a “sugar daddy”, the lady who prays. This note is that long overdue and heartfelt “thank you” to the single parents who make ends meet for their kids against all the odds. This is for you, the unsung hero- the stranger in the street who says “hello”, the stranger at the mall who lets you pay first, the stranger who gives you directions when you are lost, that stranger who gives you right of way in a congested road…this is for you…for your kindness, for the smile, for the hug, for the things you don’t have to do but you do anyway.

Thank you to all the people who are never lazy in telling us we can do it, the people who support us without thinking twice, the people who are with us when we cry and love us when we are happy. This is to our old friends who have stuck with us through thick and thin. To the people who have seen all sides of us and still choose to be with us anyway.
This is to you- you could’ve given up along the way, but you didn’t. Am sure you have survived many storms, but still you smile. The hero in you deserves a “Well done” and “Thank you”.

Never under-estimate your own power!

Here’s to us…

Love Always,
