"Sometimes We Win, Sometimes We Lose"

Musical competition happens every year especially in the month of December for the celebration of Christmas. Most Filipino people are naturally born as music lover; thus, filipino singers as well as non-singers, never misses any spot of such happenings. Bunch of surprises and big cash prizes will be given for those participants who will win the contest – vocal solo, choir, instrumental band, and dance group.

When I was at my younger age, I used to join this kind of contest even if it’s not Christmas like NCCC’s Star of Davao, “Singgit Davao”, “Kantahan sa Baranggay” and other school festival. I even tried auditioning Philippine Idol but I didn’t have the chance because of the long line. Tonight, I’ll be joining another contest and I’ll be singing, “Sana Ngayong Pasko” which was originally sang by Ariel Rivera. I really love the melody and lyrcs of this whole song since my childhood. Last year I sang “Christmas Won’t Be the Same Without You”, originally sang by Martin Nievera. I didn’t win the trophy; however, I’m still happy for I ranked 2nd place and got a prize. The contest is one of the projects of Davao City Mayor, Hon. Rodrigo Duterte.

If I lose tonight, I just think the of philosophy saying, “Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose, and sometimes the game gets rained out.” Yet, I still try to think positive to win the contest.

it's not the winning that counts, it's how you gave your best shot and put your heart into it. win or lose, you know you are a winner when you know you gave your best. :)
