Bilang isang Noranian, ako ay prone to kantiyaw kahit noon pa as if being a Nora Aunor fan is a social disease.  There was a time that I had to hide my being a Noranian para iwas sa kantiyaw.  But as grow older, unti-unti I was able to accept the fact that being a fan of Nora Aunor is not similar to someone who had leprosy.  Kasi nga habang tumatagal, I realized that my idolation is not pure adoration only but somehow I was inspired with some aspects of her life. Am sure, marami na namang mga haters mag-react as if wala akong mapapalang aral sa buhay ni Ate Guy. In fact, ang dami kung natutunan sa kanya

1.Hindi Hadlang ang Kahirapan Upang Maging Matagumpay

Iyan ang unang ginintuang aral na napulot ng mga Noranian na kagaya ko.  Alam ng milyong –milyon na Pilipino kung paano nag-simula si Nora Aunor; pag –titinda ng tubig sa tren sa Iriga.  Dahil sa gustong makatulong sa pamilya, nag-pursige siya na maging contestant sa kung anu-anong patimpalak sa kantahan para may maiuwing premyo mapera man o bigas at de lata hanggang maging grand national champion sa Tawag ng Tanghalan hanggang pinasok at ginulantang ang mundo ng pelikula.Ganito din ang karamihan sa mga Noranian na galling sa mahirap na pamilya; lumakbay sa ibang panig ng mundo upang magtrabaho at maiahon ang pamilya sa kahirapan.  Ang iba naman ay nag-sipag sa pag-aaral upang makakuha ng mabuting trabaho kagaya ko.

2.  Hindi Hadlang ang Kulay ng Balat, Height, Pinanggagalingan, at Kung Ano Pa

Ipinakita ni Nora Aunor na hanggat may angking talino ka, sipag, tiyaga, at talent at gagamitin mo ng wasto ay mayroon ka talagang mapupuntahan at magiging tagumpay kay. Naging simbolo siya ng ordinaryong Pilipino na kahit ikaw ay hindi mestisohin at ilustrado, puede ka rin na mag-paikot ng mundo sa iyong mga palad.  She gave hope to millions of maralitang Pilipino noong nasa rurok siya ng tagumpay and that every Filipino deserved to have their own success in life.

 

 

3.  Hind Hadlang Ang Tagumpay Upang Maging Makatao

Tinagurian siyang Superstar ng Philippine Showbiz ngunit kalianman hindi siya umasta na talagang siya lang ang nag-iisang reyna ng Pinoy Showbizlandia.  Bagkus, kung ituring niya ang kanyang mga fans ay parang miyembro na rin ng kanyang angkan.

Thousands of photos have proven how she is not uncomfortable with being mobbed.  Wala siyang kaartehan kahit lagpas ulo na ang mga floral necklaces and leis ang isinabit sa leeg niya.  Wala akong narinig na tagahanga niya na tinanggihan ng selfies in this time of social media network; hindi kagaya ng ibang mga batang artista na hindi pa nga sikat kung umasta kala mo daig na ang superstar in terms of popularity and achievements.selfie with nora.jpg

4.  Kahit Matagumpay Ka Na, Wala Kang Karapatang Manlait ng Tao

Humility works best if the person knows how.  Hindi lang humble si Nora Aunor; wala siyang hangin sa ulo kahit daang daan mga parangal ang natanggap at ikinabit sa kanya.  She climbed the ladder of success without stepping on another star’s shoes.  Sa pagkaka-alam ko, walang pa artista na siniraan ni Ate Guy, pero ang ibang mga artista kung makalait kay Nora Aunor akala mo katulong nila sa bahay.  (Remember this Vilma Santos and Sharon Cuneta?)  downloadI know naging matagumpay din ako sa buhay ko in my own little way and I achieved it without stepping on to another person. I won salesman of the year because of hard work.  I stayed on my jobs because I enjoyed my job and left not because of people but because it was time to move on.

5. Kapag Nadapa Bumangon Ka Plain and Simple.

Hindi makakailang ilang beses nadapa si Ate Guy at sa bawat dapa niya; pinag-pipiyestahan ng mga movie writers and declared that she finally dealt her last card.  Panahon pa ng Atsay vs Rubia Servios, she was declared as laos.  Three decades went by at nandito pa rin si Nora Aunor.

Nahulihan siya ng kaso about drugs, she took care of it but you never heard her blaming somebody.  I also had similar experienced when people whom I thought were my friends put me in a bad light.  But, because of Nora Aunor’s travails, I took care of it, and moved on with my life.  I used her situation to solve my personal dilemma. Bumangon kami ni Nora Aunor pero hindi kami nandurog ng tao kahit dinurog pa nila kami.

6.  Hindi lang pera ang importante sa mundo; you must also feed your soul.

Isa sa pinaka-ayaw ko na remarks about Nora Aunor is “saying hindi niya na-alagaan ang perang dumaan sa kamay niya.”  Para bang napakalaking tanga ni Nora Aunor at nag-waldas lang ng pera.  I always defended this notion by telling them that she did not only enhanced the Philippine movie industry but she also educated her fans by producing quality movies.  Kung hindi siya nag-produce ng “Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos,” “Fe Esperanza Caridad,” “Banaue,” Condemned,” at iba pa, marami marahil sa mga Noranians ang naging mangmag in terms of quality movies. nora movies 123.jpg Ako man was accused of waldas sa pera but going back on the books I read, movies that I saw, music I listened to, the continental food I ate, and among other things I fed to my soul and senses, it was worth the waste of money.  Ganoon din si Ate Guy sa tingin ko.  She helped build the entire Filipino movie industry in her own little way by producing and appearing in quality movies that bombed at the box-office, giving to charities, helping her families and relatives, helping friends and other stars in need, and by helping movie crews.  And I guess, current pinoy moviegoers and fans are not aware of her legacy when it comes to being a woman for others; it is time for them to be reminded.

7.  Recognition is bestowed not asked

Hindi siya na-proklama bilang National Artist pero, ang sambayanan ang nag-proklama sa kanya bilang People’s National Artist.  She was recognized and rewarded left and right kahit noong baguhan pa lang siya sa showbiz.  And all of these rewards and recognition were bestowed and given and hindi dahil sa “envelopmental culture” propagated by other pseudo-superstars.  In my case, naiinggit ako sa mga kaibigan ko when they received rewards and recognition but I am also happy for them.  Like Nora Aunor, sabi ko sa sarili ko my time will always come.  Like Nora Aunor, hindi ko pinangangalandakan ang mga positive aspects of my life bagkus, other people recognized some facts of my life that I am better than them.

Ang mga ginintuang aral na ito ay naging gabay ko sa aking buhay. Opo, hindi po exclusive kay Ate Guy ang mga aral na ito.  Ngunit, sa kanyang buhay ko natagpuan ang tamang explanation at description kung ano ang ibig sabihin nito.  Ang mga aral sa buhay ay magiging epektibo lamang kung ito ay may kalakip na tamang halimbawa gaya ng mga halimbawa na nakita ko kay Nora Aunor.
