“Life is indeed a journey, full of highs and lows. But you should never stop moving, and you always keep moving forwards.”

This is the realization of beauty queen-actress Rich Asuncion amid pandemic. She and her family have migrated to Australia where she works as waitress.  

The 31-year-old actress talked about adapting to change.

“Simulan natin ang post na ito nang masaya. Napakasaya ko ngayong araw dahil natanggap ko na ang una kong sweldo…at sa wakas ay di na ako na lulugmok sa lungkot,” she wrote on Instagram. “Malaking bagay to dahil sa panahon ngayon ang hirap humanap ng dahilan para sumaya. Lalo pa at nag-adjust palang ako dito sa Australia.”

Rich said how important the job is to her.

“Kailangan mo yun dito dahil pag sa bahay ka lang mas lalo kang malulungkot,” she related. “Marami naman kasing opportunities dito basta di ka lang mapili. So yun na nga, dahil di na ko ako nagpaka-choosy sinubukan ko na ang pagwi-waitress.”

She admitted it wasn’t easy to “accept” this transition in her career.

“Pero narealize ko ngayon, ano naman ang masama dun. Part pa rin naman sya ng Tourism course na kinuha ko sa UP. At wala akong karapatan maginarte kasi nabigyan ako panibagong chance to start anew.

“My point here is, I know most of us will need to adjust to a new/different life after this pandemic. And that’s not all that bad. To be able to survive through this is already a blessing. As hard as it may seem, look for the silver lining. Hold on and say I am still a champion.”

She reminded people who are experiencing the same thing to just be grateful as some people have lost or sacrificed more than they do.

“Sa ngayon ay tanggap ko na at masaya na ko sa bago kong buhay kasama ang aking pamilya,” she said. “Nakapag-enrol na rin ako to continue my studies and last week, I was offered a full-time job at a Daycare where I can work closely with Bela (her daughter).”

Rich announced she and her husband, Rugby player Ben Mudie, have put down a reservation for their future home in Australia. 

“What a blessing!” her post ended.
