State of Uncertainty

Like most Filipinos, there is always this unending thirst for the pursuit, whether that is success, happiness or meaning.

We pursue the intangible with passion, grit and alacrity. To bend the rules and make new ones as we go along the way. Sometimes we’re so caught up in this limitless marathon that we forget about the finish lines for a precious moment to just be.

Just being isn’t a comfortable concept for Millennials and the emerging youth, because our identity is in a constant flux, rubble, waiting to be cemented. We’re scrambling to pick up fragments of our identity, as every other viral article attempts to bring us down by the very individuals that raised us. We’re damned if we do, we’re damned if we don’t, is a mantra that comes to mind.

My way of remedying that simmering state of uncertainty is to face life head-on, with a cheetah-like prowess. Steady, stealthy and unwavered.

Why not make a statement and own your narrative before anyone else preemptively tries to do so for you? It’s time that we come out from hiding in our respective digital “bushes” to play, to revel and to make our presence known.

  1. I LOVE this! People sometimes forget to look up from their phones, and realize how much they can DO these days! In spite of everything that’s going on in the world, it really is a great time to be alive because there are so many opportunities. It’s just up to us to seize them!

  2. As a Filipino with (currently) purple & pink hair and dropped out of college to pursue another career path that isn’t “traditional”, I definitely gone through a “state of uncertainty”. I literally experienced waking up in the middle of the night because of a panic attack. So I agree with you’re remedy “face life head-on, with a cheetah-like prowess” because if you decided to do something unconventional and follow your passion, you really need courage and focus 🙂 Anyway, lovely dress and love that you talked about this while the photos are you in a cave 😀

    • Right???!!! and as a Filipino, you are expected to land a job that is more “money making” than “passion” and they will raise their eyebrows if you’ll end up working the non-traditional way like being freelancer. haha!

      And yup, face life head on and go straight to the goal, as long as you are happy and not harming anyone.

      And thank you! I think the cave can be a perfect place to reflect. idk. haha!

  3. I totally agree with your statement. It’s unfortunate that millennials are always being trashed by the older generation. At the same time, some of our actions trigger that kind of reaction. Love the photoshoot you had in the Callao Caves! 🙂
