What keeps you going?

We come across a lot of different situations in life: challenging situations or not-so-challenging ones. Personally, I have more challenging situations in my life. And sometimes, I end up literally not having a clue of what to do next, and I hate it. It's like you sit there, probably looking like some sort of mental patient and you just don't know what to do.

Whenever someone would stop me from what it is I want to do, I just ask myself 'does it really matter what they think?'. And I know it's really cliche but, you actually have to ask yourself that once in a while. You can't always listen to what people say or think about you or what you want to do because if it's something negative then, you're going to get no where. For me, I think that believing in yourself is one of the major thing to get get a hold of. Because once you do, there's no need to doubt yourself if you can achieve something, you go for it instantly. Some fail miserably but that's only because they didn't believe in their self enough or didn't give their self that extra push. Everyone, and I mean everyone needs an extra push when it comes to trying to achieve something big. No one gets what they want or wish that quickly. Unless ofcourse you're some sort of multi-millionare/billionare and people are literally at your feet just waiting for you to throw them a bone.

Family is another thing that keeps me going. Knowing that they're there to support me really helps big time. Because they're like my fans. They're there to tell me if I'm doing something stupid, they're there to tell me to 'snap out of it', and they're there to cheer me on. I really do feel blessed and thankful to have them because I know that not everyone has fans like I do. I wan to say that I don't want to get too cheesy but I'm sure I've gone passed that line already, so there's really no point of me telling you guys that. Friends are also a huge help because I mean, friends are just the best. They can be a real stone cold bitch to you because they know they're doing it for your own good.

Oh and one last thing that really keeps me going. My grandmother. I don't want this to turn into a soap and I'm not trying to get any sympathy votes or anything, but my grandmother who has passed away six years ago owns a lot of the credit for why I am where I am now.

What would I do if I won the lottery?

So this question was asked to me by my cousin, and an on-going question in the economy we're in right now. 'What would you do, if you won the lottery?' Bearing in mind, we're talking about winning P741-million pesos, which would be around £11-million pounds. That's quite a lot. Okay, maybe I'm being a bit too generous on the 'quite a lot' bit, because lets be honest, that's a lot of money. Especially if you're poor or middle class.

This is what I would do personally.
First, I would ask my family what they wanted. Absolutely ANYTHING they could dream of. It could be a sports car, a penthouse or a big giant panda. I would spoil them because they're my family. Simple as that. Secondly, I would ask my friends if they were having any troubles financially or any problems that money could solve. Then I would treat them to a designer handbag each or whatever they fancied. Thirdly, seeing as I'm a Filipino, and I have a lot of love for my people and my country... I would buy a couple of lands in the Philippines to build houses and apartments on for some of the poor people to live in. No one should ever have to live and die on the streets. Everyone deserves a home. And because I have a very soft spot for the elderlies, I would get a place built especially for them to stay in, with people taking care of their needs. After all that, if the church in my homewtown needs refurbishing, I'm going to help them with the money or just donate an amount big enough. Lastly, I would buy the things I want. I know this sounds like I'm trying to be such a good person but honestly, this is what I would actually do. The church bit wasn't in my orginal answer as I never thought of it, but a couple of people have mentioned it to me as one of the things they would do and I thought, why not do the same? Not because I want to get into heaven or anything but simply because it's a nice thing to do.

Here are some of the answers I got, when I asked them the question:

if i were to win in lottery i wil buy hauzes in US and UK as a sart of a good investment then i will also buy lamborghini sportscar and Ducati motorbike so i can play dirt riding wid my hubby...hmpp,,wakeup wakeup..LOL! anyways daydreaming is free.. -Monette M.

I would give a million to my close family memebers and go around the world with my family :) -Rachel R.

I would be ill and shocked. -Reema M.

I would donate a big part and with the rest I'd do a world trip, buy my parents sth they need and save the rest for bad times. -Sophie S.

Have a church built then fly to New York. -Kyzzle G.

Everyone has their own dreams, but if you won the lottery, could that amount of money make your dreams come true? What would you do if you won the lottery?
