Tuesday Thoughts # 1

Politics:
Supporting our President no matter what! Reliance on Foreign Aids leave us with a beggar’s mentality. I am not saying Foreign Aid is a bad thing, it never is and never will be, and I truly appreciate the countries who have helped us during tragedies but I hope Filipinos begin to realize that we are more than just a recipient of aid.

Let’s all change the way we see ourselves. Let’s all take pride in being Filipinos!

Work:
Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life. Relate na relate ako dito. I thank all the powers in this Universe who conspired to make it possible for me to experience fulfillment in my career. I don’t have much but I have everything!

Life:
Whatever is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person. Planggana!

I hope you are happy and well wherever you are.

Wag Ka Nang Umiyak

Currently my favorite song to date because, I don’t know. I thought it’s a very very sad song, sadly, it isn’t. HAHAHA. Yes, I oftentimes find myself basking in sadness. I don’t know, a lot has changed with the way how I see life now that tatay has gone to heaven. I get sad over the simplest of things. But I am definitely stronger. Next week, I promise to be BOLDER!

“Ako ang iyong bangka, kung magalit man
ang alon ng panahon, sabay tayong aahon”

I have moved on a long time ago. I am happier now. Sikapin mong maging masaya. Gawin mo namang worth it yung mga nangyari. While I feel like winning because finally, nagkatotoo yung “it’s not my loss”, I am also partly sad (mga 1%…okay, .05%)…pero hindi dahil sayo. I am just sad because paulit-ulit kong pinapakinggan ‘tong kanta. Back to what I was saying, I absolutely don’t regret anything. Totoo yun talaga. Now that we are talking again, hanggang dyan na lang yan. I am not even flattered.

Whatever is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person.

I never thought getting seenzoned is this…heartbreaking. Ang arte, hahaha! Seriously, I feel UNIMPORTANT and FORGETTABLE and it  hurts because it’s true. Huy! Feelings ko naman ‘to and I have the right to feel this way. But it’s okay.

My 2015 So Far

A so-so year so far, so what??!! Regardless, I am thankful for a lot of things. For one, I AM STILL ALIVE!

Funny how I met and lost and found and lost you again.

Love and hate relationship. Ginusto ko naman ‘to so yun na nga, embracing it.

I am 100 miles away from my comfort zone!

Undoubtedly, DU30 is my president. Miriam coming in at second. Who’s yours?

Met a lot of new friends for keeps.

Traveling solo soon! Sana out of the country, at sana lang kayanin ko. Although for the most part of the day, I am very independent, I am also very very clingy. Charot.

And yes, just like everyone else, I also watch KalyeSerye. Jose Manalo is super funny!

Lastly, I AM BACK! Ang busy ko kaya, hopefully, it wont take another 8mos before I can blog again.

3 Things I am Grateful For

Do you realize how powerful your thoughts and words are?

2 years ago, I’ve been constantly whining over my life, how it was too boring and routinary and comfortable. I wanted to experience something dramatic to have a more interesting and exciting life. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and look out for more challenges. I wanted a drama, this Universe conspired and made it happen. 2013-2014 surely is the worst and most uncomfortable and challenging and dramatic year for me. I’ve never felt so down and depressed and lost.

I want you guys to be more careful with your thoughts, wishes and words. Never ever wish for a drama!

Anyway, here are the 3 things I am most grateful for today:

1. Grateful for my fast internet connection. Internet became my escape. It’s so nice that I can watch a lot of youtube tutorials, from make up to cooking to making loom bands to playing Bass guitar! I know nothing about bass guitar, so while browsing online, I saw this video and instantly it caught my interest! Got inspired by this young lady who learned to play bass by just watching youtube videos:

Mad skills right there! She didn’t even know how to read chords, she’s just playing it by ear. So cool. I know i know, it might be too late and ambitious to learn playing bass but who knows. HAHA. If I get enough money and time and right amount of passion, I might buy a Fender bass guitar and learn to play it.

2. Grateful for friends who have shown support in any way they can – from childhood friends, gradeschool/high school/college classmtes, officemates, neighbors, churchmates to blogfriends, I will never ever forget your kindness guys!

3. Grateful for the support of my family and relatives. I feel that I am so much closer now to them than I had been in the past. Thank you and I love you. Even if there’s a lot of pain now, everything would be all right someday.

What are the things you’re most grateful for?

Happily Ever After


photo from weddingbella

A lot of my friends are planning to get married/engaged this year! WHYY?? Hhaha.

Because she knows how much I enjoy beading, one girl friend, graciously asked me to create a personalized lavender and silver wedding cord to be used on her wedding this November. I haven’t started yet, but as soon as I have all the materials ready, I’ll have it done right away.

There’s one guy friend who probably thought I was a jeweler. Friend, I don’t have any idea about the price of engagement rings and gold wedding rings. HAHA. But I’m guessing they’re expensive. Don’t worry, I’ll ask, and if you need creative planning to help you execute your romantic proposal, I’m just a text away!

Another friend who used to be adamant about getting married is finally taking the plunge! I feel so much joy for the two of you as you join your lives in marriage! Love you guys!

And another guy friend who’s seriously considering of getting married right away (in 3 months time), after having told the girl about his feelings just recently. I am appalled!!! But if you feel in your heart that she’s the ONE, go for it!

Early congratulations guys! Wish you all a lifetime of wonderful memories!

My Life So Far

My life so far is just…so-so.

Wow I’m almost halfway through my life and still, I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished great things over the past years. I do not consider myself a failure, not a succes either. I haven’t done many bad things, I haven’t done a lot of good things either. My life so far is just so-so. My state of mind is stucked at age 27, but when I check myself in the mirror…my youthful glow is slowly vanishing hahaha, why I look very matured?? LOLs. I failed to realize that I am getting old! In fact, I get surprised every time I tell myself that I am 34 already ! WAITTTT WHAAAT!!!?? I am 34??? How?? So that explains why whenever I stand up after a few minutes of sitting, I could feel my knees trembling and aching. I hope it’s not early signs of rheumatism. What have I been doing all these years? All these time I thought I am living to have a good life, instead, I am living because I am not dead yet. You get it, no? My life isn’t all that bad, ok. It’s just that, right now, when I look back at my life, I wish I had done this and that sooner. Not regretting those past choices I made, ok maybe, I am regretting a little, but hey, I still have plenty of time, right? 34 compared to 80 is still very young.

I used to say “I want to do many things” often and I believe, I was able to do that. I travelled, fell in and out of love (naksss), learned how to cook, rebonded and colored my hair, bought a nice phone, ate whatever I want etc. In other words, I lived a convenient self-centered life all these time! But from this day onwards, I want to try doing many WORTHWHILE things for the mankind!  CHAROT! HAHHAHA.

Seriously, I don’t want to end up selfish, miserable, useless and unhealthy so I am committing myself to doing a few extraordinary things like joining a cause, donating blood, 10 sit-ups/day, green tea everyday, eating less rice/sugar/salt, show random act of kindness, practice my singing and dancing, continue learning etc. I know it’s not going to be easy that’s why I am hesitating hahaha but I’m up for the challenge!

My life is bound to change soon. How’s your life so far?

Irrepressible Goodness

Though there is much to be concerned about, there is far, far more for which to be thankful. Though life’s goodness can at times be overshadowed, it is never outweighed.

For every single act that is senselessly destructive, there are thousands more small, quiet acts of love, kindness and compassion. For every person who seeks to hurt, there are many, many more who devote their lives to helping and to healing.

When something needs to be done, even if it is difficult and demanding, there is always someone who steps forward to do it. When problems arise, there are always those who are eager to deal with them.

Though the goodness of life does at times suffer setbacks, it always endures. And when it is challenged, the goodness of life comes back stronger than ever.

For in the darkest moments it becomes vividly clear that life is a priceless treasure. And so the goodness of life is made even stronger by the very things that oppose it.

Open your heart and look around you. You will see that goodness shining in every direction.

— Ralph Marston

*********
NOTES: Exactly what I needed today – “Open your heart and look around you. You will see that goodness shining in every direction”

Something not so nice happened this morning and I don’t want to focus all my energy about it today. No to negative stuff pls. I want to just enjoy and focus in the goodness of life!
