To make the story short, I was asked if I could do a bit of a blog about my life in Thailand as it may inspire other Filipinos who are losing hopes and having troubles finding work. There is really nothing special about me. I am just an ordinary Pinoy working hard for my family just like everyone else. But anyhow, here it goes.
As I was about to finish my second year and was ready to sign a new contract, the owner of the school decided not to have me renewed as well as one farang teacher. We were just given a month’s notice to pack our things. We then left and bid goodbye. We were not given any reason on why we were shipped out. I was again losing hope and was planning to just go back home and end my stint as an OFW. But still, I gave it another shot and applied for other jobs. Many schools contacted me but they were only offering between 25,000- 30,000. I didn’t accept any as I know my worth; confident that I deserve a better pay. I already purchased a flight ticket back home for July 27th in case no better offers will come my way. A week before my flight though, a company run by a farang called me up for an interview, and guess what, I was offered more than what I was expecting. More than what I had from my previous school. What a luck! Everytime I feel giving up, something good comes up.
With all the times of wanting to give up, I just prayed and ask our Lord God for guidance and strength to overcome the problems and thanking him for all the good things he had given me. He always answer our prayers. He might not give it at the time we want it but it is always at his time and at the right time. All I can say is, everything happens for a reason and good things will come to those who wait as long as you believe in yourself that you are worth more than what others think of you.
