Friday afternoon was a celebration of art, literature, history and everything in between. Avida Land, in collaboration with Ayala Museum and CNN Philippines Life, held the INSPIRE EVERY DAY event that aims to inspire people to pursue their passions in their every day lives. Visitors, even kids, enjoyed the different activities that goes with the theme ” Inspiration Got Us Started, Passion Keeps Us Going.”
Inside the museum, I found myself understanding the past. Life was simple and easy before. People started from scratch – from the clothes they wear, to the homes they live. A basic life to be exact.
With their own hands, they have empowered their community and enriched lives. What they did before was a picturesque of their strength that we cherished until today.
From the basic life, they were driven to conquer and rule the world.
Today, life is complicated.
We have so many options to choose from and so many roads to take.
We also face different battles. How do we set our own stage?
I know we need inspiration to keep us going, just like the people from our history.
During the discussion with Jerrold Tarog, director of the film Heneral Luna, I was enlightened by his saying, “People who came before me are really not different from who I am. So, ‘yung mga struggles na dinaanan nila, (the struggles that they’ve experienced) the way they think is pretty much the same as how I did today. In the context of our lives on this planet, the people you see in these dioramas, they were just here yesterday. One hundred years, two hundred years, it’s a very, very short time from the point of human evolution.”
How do you pursue your passion? So what drives you to achieve your dream? This is how Director Jerrold answered it.
Now, I’d like to know what is your passion? My passion is to inform people.
My dream is to own a home.
What inspires me every day? Life inspires me every day. It is an endless artwork where I draw my dreams, sketch my plans, erase some mistakes, hand-paint my goals, frame my success and do it all again.
Now, let me ask you, what’s your passion and what inspires you every day?
