“I want you to look up! I do not want you to look down.
I want you to be proud of yourselves. The finals is done. Nobody expected us to be here. We will be better. “
Whew! It hit me right there!
Those were the final words from the UP Men’s Basketball coach Bo Perasol during the final minutes of UAAP game 2 finals. The University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP), established in 1938, is an athletic association of eight Metro Manila universities in the Philippines.
Have you watched the game?
I’ve always been a UP fan.
And just like any other fan, I’d always hope they win every game!
More so, that I want them to win the finals.
Guess what? UP made it all the way to the finals…only to be beaten twice by their opponent Ateneo Blue Eagles!
It’s kind of a heartbreaking to see your favorite team being crushed down.
It was kinda painful, yes! But that doesn’t matter at all…
Who would have thought that the team who was once at the bottom 2 when the season started…
…somehow made it to the finals!
At the end of the day, that’s all that matters.
They made it till the end…
In the same way….
If during the start of the year, you’ve made some big goals.
But now as the year ends, you feel as though things are falling apart.
…if you think you’re down now!
…if you think you don’t know where you’re headed to!
…if you’re still wondering what’s next for you…
Have that UP spirit.
Make that first step again…And the next steps will unfold!
I assure you if you act and do your thing…
There’s no other way but UP!
