Yassi Pressman shared the realizations she learned after spending some quality time with street children.
On Instagram, the Ang Probinsyano star showed some photos of how she was able to enjoy spending time with street kids in Manila. According to Yassi, she bought the children some soft drinks but was surprised when they offered her a candy in return.
She recalled, “Araw-araw ang sarap magpasalamat, maliban sa napakasayang araw ng trabaho, may napaalala na naman sa akin itong mga batang to. Binilhan ko sila ng softdrinks, kapalit daw nun eh gusto ko daw ba ng candy?”
It was then she realized how kindness comes in different forms. Yassi continued, “Naisip ko na ang kabutihan ay kabutihan, it doesn’t matter what you have or don’t have, but your willingness to give will take you places.”
The actress thanked the children for reminding her to appreciate the small things and the happiness it brings. Yassi said, “It’s the small things, and that happiness you get from what you & the people around you do. Salamat sa munting paalala at sa mga ngiti mga bata! pati na rin po pala sa candy! Magkikita din tayo ulit!”
Yassi had earlier shared her prayer; thanking the Lord for the lessons on positivity He showed her.
She said, “Life always has its way of surprising you. Perseverance, Positivity and Prayers. Thank you, Lord Father, for guiding me and giving me the lessons for when i have failed and the strength to get up and grow! Always!”
