My 2013

This is a bit recap of my year. I must admit that this is a ‘ME STUFF” and not something about food, travel, technology, beauty or anything above or under the hot sunshine. :)

This is an awesome year to remember. “22” is the best age according to Taylor Swift and I think she is right about it while, according to Paramore from their Hello Cold World song,

22 is like the worst idea that I have ever had
It’s too much pain, it’s too much freedom
What should I do with this?
it’s not the way you plan it
It’s how you make it happen

Well, both idea were right, I have experienced both and I just had lots of fun, pressure and knowledge to keep. It makes me feel more human and I realized that every second of the day is important because I am getting old and I might lose my aces and regret it for not doing anything. I must spend it wisely and even if it is difficult to do, I must survive! Even if it is tiring, at the end of the day it will be all full worth to do.

One thing is for sure about me now and for the succeeding years:  “I WILL NEVER LOSE ANY PARTICULAR CHANCE IN MY LIFE. I WILL AVOID TO SAY NO TO GOOD TIMES AND QUALITY TIMES. I WILL DO EVERYTHING TO MAKE A LIVING AND FOR MY FUTURE

ON THE OTHER HAND, here are some photos of my adventures this year:

I am really thankful for this year. Grateful to do so many things. had lots of fun with my family and friends. Spend quality time with those people I love most. 2013 is a year of experience for me. Looking forward to more adventures in 2014. It is a new beginning too! I am gonna be tougher than I am now.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

I hope you all had a good year in 2013 too and like I wish, may 2014 be nice to all of us. We cannot avoid bumps on the road but you must learn how to drive: speed up, slow down and stop.

Love,

Post Christmas Greetings

Lately, I was consumed by family duties and other stuff. I was always away from my computer and I only have my phone which I have the WordPress app in it where I can able to reply all the comments.

I am having a hard time blogging using my phone because there was this incident when I almost finish my post for the day, I accidentally deleted it. It hurts because it was hard to type a long post using only a smartphone. Well, at least I re-typed all of it again. haha! Good Job for me (sarcasm).

GREETINGS!

122613 107

I wanna greet all of you a Merry Christmas! I hope you enjoyed your Christmas. Whether it was just a simple lunch, dinner or a grand celebration with your family and friends. Still, you have the right to celebrate the season of love and share you care for others. Having such an amazing Christmas doesn’t depend on how many gifts you received or how grand the food that you eat. It’s Christmas! what matters, you remember who we celebrate for and its essence.

My Christmas

Well, mine was all very simple and it was a sleepy day for me and for the family. This was the only time I got the chance to sleep long enough recovering from the sleepless nights I spent in the hospital because my granny was admitted last week. I thought I will spend Christmas in the hospital but luckily my granny was discharged before Christmas day.

I am just happy that my granny is now positively recovering. She had depression and anxiety that caused her to take too much sleep and lost her appetite for the reason that she was diagnose the past month with diabetes. The doctor advised her to go on a diet but she overdo it and caused her to lose weight.

I got the chance to spend my Christmas night with my boyfriend and we were just happy at home talking. It was all simple yet happy time.

Happy Holidays!
Take care always!

Circles

ImageThere is a formal reason of why you love somebody is to let yourself to be loved too. Considering that they can fully hurt you. We all believe that there are different types of relationships and each one is unique from the other. Maybe it have some things in common but at the end there are some bits and pieces that is unique to anyone else.

We could barely think about how a couple struggle, but one thing is for sure, “If they promised to work things out and if they love each other at a certain point they can do anything they want.” Even, moving mountains across the sea.

There’s no such thing as perfect love, true love or forever. If you just stop finding the right person and let God plan everything for your love. You will no longer chase the wrong ones. Although, sometimes God gave you the wrong one to learn from it so that when the He gave you the right one you can able to manage whatever life gave you, together.

If you love someone, you will do anything and when you do love someone you have to deal with the trials and surpass it together. As people says, “You will not stop wondering not until you try it”. Try to love. Try to risk things. Try to be hurt and cry. Try to scream at the top of your lungs. Try to be yourself. Try not to depend on others because some people throw rubbish at your back because they don’t know you at all.

Circles interconnects

There are times that people thought that the only people I have is them. They don’t know that besides them, I also create my own circles and those circles understand for who I am. They are the one who know better than them. I can talk shits and rainbows with them.

Circles can fully understand me. I love my days when I am with them. I felt like I am living and I am human. I am not creating a bubble but I am protecting myself from being hurt by the people who don’t understand me at all. I do not want to cry because of what they say about me. I know words are sharper than a knife and can tear me up into pieces but I allow them to do it to me.

I popped my bubble and let them enter my life again but they hurt me again. Every person that I love were being hurt by these people and I don’t wanna see another person crying because of them. First, I saw my mom cry because of them and now, My father. I don’t wanna see another love cry because of them. It is enough that I cry because they have thrown sharp words at me. I am putting my bubble up again.

“Understanding” is a big word

Image

I remember back in college and taking up a “Marriage and Family” course subject as a part of the curriculum. One day, my professor let us pick one with: Understanding, Kindness, Forgiveness, and Patience. I don’t recall what my answer is but now, I totally understand what my professor wanted us to learn about it.

She said, “There is always one thing that you could not give among the four and you will have a hard time earning it but just pray for it and ask it to the Lord.”

Now, I have realized that I lacked of Understanding and I really need to earn it. I always have the grace of understanding but what I am trying to explain here the understanding the SITUATIONS especially the unfavorable ones. If I have it, I could also learn how to forgive, be patient and be kind to everyone because I can understand them.

I can forgive someone because I understand his/her or my mistakes. I can be kind to anyone without waiting for any favorable returns. I can be patient towards the things that needs some waiting. If I could earn and learn Understanding I am able to hold on and let go. I can also learn how to give way and sacrifice things and I could not get what I want sometimes. Life is not fair we all know that and we just need to manage our needs and wants.

Use Understanding at any situation

Have you ever been in this situation?

You really wanted something but fate stepped in and at the end you did not have it at all?

  • How do you feel about it?
  • Have you ever asked God, WHY?
  • Did you cry?
  • Did your heart broke into little pieces?
  • What else did you feel?

We really need understanding in here because we have to realize WHY we did not have it or make it. We have to understand that some things in life are not really for us and at some point we could look for its equivalent and feel better. We must admit that LIFE is UNFAIR and we have to deal with it. We need to start moving forward, so that we are not stuck in the mud with our broken hearts.

Why is it a big word?

At any point of our lives whether it is about success or failures, we have to begin with understanding the situations. By the time being, we can asses our actions towards the situation. This is no-brainer I know but we just have to know how to understand things so that  we move forward without any excess or heavy baggage on our back.

Just keep this on your mind,

in every situations whether it is on your side or not just keep your high hopes because there is always tomorrow. Maybe it is not for you or maybe there are a lot bigger plans waiting for you. Keep you feet onto the ground and be humble. Never let anyone tell you what you can do and what you cannot do because you can do anything if you are eager to achieve one thing.

Never stop believing. Never stop. Just never ever stop.

Happy one! Labor day! Updates here on my blog: themes, profiles, about me section and more

I have decided to update my blog since this plan is a long overdue on my list. I spend whole day polishing this up to be more reader and visual friendly. These changes also have a good impact for me to blog often and I am happy with it.

I must pursue all of my plans and work on a new list. I have thought about doing some extra activities since I have nothing to do here at home. I thought about changing my blog address when I have availed my domain name. I know it is a lot of work. I love doing some work here in WordPress and this is my very first decent blog I ever have.

Updates:

I did some profile updates since the old one is an obsolete entry but I am not satisfied with my latest. I need to think more enticing, more realistic and mature about me entry.

I am having a writer’s block when it comes to my about me because I am not a descriptive type of person who reiterate all the things that I love, like and do most. I need to exacerbate something beautifully craft and real.

Labor Holiday

Happy Labor Holiday! The workforce group have some celebration to make this day because today is their day! Some stayed at home and be with their families while others went to the mall and beach to have fun.

I am not yet belong to the work force so I somehow don’t feel the awesomeness of this day. I must admit that I am unemployed but it is not by choice. I have to wait for the right time and while waiting for that right time I must do something fruitful which is merely equal to a job.

Happy One!

Before I forgot, today is also the 40th month of me and Ejay (my guy). We don’t usually celebrate monthsaries so big but still it is special for the both of us. We do not count the months and sometimes we get confused if how many years we have been together. :-)

What is important with monthsaries are the habit of “reminding” how strong we are in our relationship. Nothing can be more important with is to, REMEMBER and greet each other because it pumps the blood in the relationship to let it live strong and happy.

I love today and everyday. Stay happy as you can be and live your life for it is unique.

We’ll have it soon

Maybe not now, maybe later. We don’t know when things will come but we are sure it will come in a right time and place.

We know that everything happens for a reason but that reason will not happen if we do not make choices or decisions. We are not bound to be stagnant persons but we are here to do productive things. Making life, making friends, making money or even the least is to make love (human production).

“We’ll have it soon”
We’ll have some money to buy things that we want.
We’ll have time to spend at the casino and some money to waste
We’ll get marry soon and have family
And we’ll have anything that we aim and wanted soon.
We’ll get there soon; strive for the better and strive for the best. Be patient and keep you aim locked!

We are not alone in this world like when someone needs help friends come over. Living in a misery world composed of anxieties, wearies, greed and selfishness, we have to look for at least one person that we can trust or we can depend on. It could be our parents, brother, sister, neighbor, high school teacher, best friend, enemy, boyfriend/girlfriend or even strangers. What is important is to build trust, love, and kindness.

In this world, everything will change. We could not stop it or it will not stop just to please us. We have to make decisions or choices that affects our paths on the threshold of future.

Just be happy. Don’t take life too serious though sometimes we cannot find what we really our because we had a lot of fun and forget what we will supposed to do. We get drowned by time and by the moment we stop we have much less time to spend to straighten our lives.

By means of breathing and moving, we have to move forward because life goes on and on and on.

Today.

Laughing out Loud!
Spanish time I was so sleepy and my professor told us what is the translation for “kiss me” it is “besa me” and out of the blue I said it to my seatmate and friend Bea then suddenly all my friends look at me and laugh so I was. :)

Late this after noon,
I was about to atteend my class but I dropped by at the org. room to see my classmate and I saw Jose my friends – friends :) he is a pro in playing guitar and he plays Taylor Swift songs so my friends and I sing a long with him. It was really really fun and somehow it made my day.

Early this morning I was informed by the fansite of Taylor Swift that she will have a live chat on July 20 at 5pm EDT, I am so excited about that news. apparently it will be on July 21 at 6am because I am residing here in the Philippines, she will talk about her third album and I am so excited to know what it is all about.

Generating the my ideas I come up to a point that what is the last thing happened to me today. I am sleepy right now or I just miss someone to talk to, maybe later when I am off to bed. :)

silly and bubbly friends create my wonderful life in college they somehow give colors on my sucking day in school.

my love (summer) he give strength and corrects me if I am going into a wrong path, he is my companion in the road I am currently taking in and I am so happy to have him.

There are people along the road that we take inspires us to do good things and we never know how long they will stay, treasure them like precious gems and take care of them so that they will never leave you behind and forget all about you.

LoveCareSmile.
