“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
from “The Alchemist”
I was mulling over the inspiration I will use for my last blog entry for Miss Universe Philippines Rachel Peters. And then I suddenly thought of checking the popular quotes lifted from the different works of Brazilian poet and writer Paulo Coelho. And everything seemed to fit.
Rachel is really dead-set on bringing the Miss Universe crown back to the Philippines. She wants to win more than anything else. And if it is written in her fate to do so, then she will take on the responsibility with open arms and a heart full of humility.
”The wise are wise only because they love.”
from “Elders on Love: Dialogues on the Consciousness, Cultivation, and Expression of Love” (1999) by Kenneth R. Lakritz and Thomas M. Knoblauch
Everyone already knows how much strong and enviable the relationship that Rachel with Gov. Migz Villafuerte of Camsur. And they truly adore each other.
For Rachel, Migz is her rock. And for Migz, Rachel is the only woman he will go coconuts for. The love they share is what keeps them strong, wiser and emotionally stable.
”A moment is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”
from “The Devil and Miss Prym”
The Miss Universe 2017 Finals will be full of defining moments for that one candidate who will have her destiny written in the stars as this year’s winner. And Rachel sincerely hopes that her bright moments will come flooding in and push her up to the highest tier of the night. There is no other time in her life where she has been more ready to accept the fate that lies ahead. And if that means being the successor of Iris Mittenaere, then she will wear the crown with immense pride.
After all, she is “Philippines” and wearing the sash empowers her to continue the winning tradition of the country in global pageantry.
Best of luck, Rachel!
I love you to the Universe and back!
