Hello there. Welcome back to my blog! I am still keeping up with the 30-day blog challenge. Yesterday, I talked about my dream job, and that is to be a housewife with a twist. Today, you will read about my proudest moment.
Everyone experiences a life full of ups and downs. During this journey, there are moments which when you experience them, you will know that your life will never be the same again. Perhaps, it would be landing on your dream job; or maybe, your girlfriend just said YES; or, you passed the licensure exam; maybe, you just become a parent. These moments don’t just happen – because they are a product of some major decisions you made from the past. However tonight, I will not be talking about any of my external achievements, because my proudest moment is seeing the transformations and happy endings of our rescued cats and dogs.
My proudest moment
They changed me – my perspective towards them. When you build a connection with them, you will see how these voiceless creatures are neglected. They are abused and left to suffer, and they are everywhere. Although many pets in my country are loved and well-taken care of, as much as one third of or even more of all pets are still kept in conditions which in developed countries are already grounds for prosecution. It doesn’t matter if the family keeping them are well-off or not, abuse is always there. How much more for those who are strays and have no family to keep them? It’s really heartbreaking.
I started rescuing way back 2017. I won’t elaborate further the humble beginnings. It’s true that when you enter this world of rescuing, prepare your heart to be broken a lot of times. What actually drives me to continue is the conscious need to help the voiceless out of their difficult situations. Although I couldn’t help them all, I will continue what I need to do.
When I look at them, I remember how they got here and how far they have come. If they didn’t know us, they wouldn’t be here for sure, and that they had already given up. As I look back, that’s the time I want to move forward.
