Love is all around me and so the feeling grows

Mondays are made for LOVE. That is what I will believe in starting today. I mean, I know LOVE is a daily thing but this day showed me Love in two different angles.

Love can be seen in a face of a lady who’s excited to have a date with the man of her life. A dear friend of mine, whom I am not sure if I should name (haha) is very happy and all giddy as I helped her plan her weekend getaway. My heart was racing with excitement just by thinking how happy their trip will be. Thank you friend for trusting me with this one… now I have another event to specialize on aside from the birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers etc… that is “Date Planning”. Just the thought of writing the letters ETD and ETA makes me jump for joy!

Love can be heard in the laughter of a couple sharing one umbrella under the non-stop rain. After a quick Iced Cafe Mocha with Mint syrup date, I walked to the place where the fx should be waiting. I heard cute little noises, I stopped looking at my feet and my eyes fell on this lovely couple having a really good time together. They were laughing their hearts out, the echos of their love were magical. It was like watching a scene from a movie and I was so glad I was there, right then and there.

See, Love doubles up! It can actually take you to places you have never imagined. One must know how to open their hearts and let the love in. Accept love like you have never been hurt. That is the only way to heal a broken heart. There should be no place for long time hatred. 🙂

10 Thoughts

Keep-Trying-Keep-Believing-Be-Happy-Don-290x406

1) I am alive again and I am human. I feed on love and pain at the same time.
2) If some people can’t accept us the way we were and the way we are, let them be. Someone will.
3) Feel the pain, for in it, you are bound to see wonderful things.
4) Blue makes me feel happy where everything is cloud like.
5) I am crazy and I have already asked someone if I can date him.
6) Life is so real, I pinched myself earlier and got hurt but didn’t bleed. Life didn’t kill me which means I am stronger in general.
7) Wait and be patient. In moments of loneliness, wait again and be more patient than ever.
8) The only reason why I have problems is because I over think things which should not be the case.
9) There is time for every thing, if only I will give time to make them happen.
10) If if I fail in what ever I do, I tell myself “Get back up and Move on.”

The past and the present

In the darkest of hours
You put your knees up
Hug yourself tight
And get lost in the sea of loneliness

Then again, we are only human
Prone to making mistakes
Prone to fall so easy
Then get hurt like a boomerang

Just remember
Forgive yourself
Let go of all the pains
Push all the worries away

One day,
When you least expect it
The world’s greatness will manifest itself
The darkness you have known will just be a phase

So…
Today, forgive
Tomorrow, love again
Like it’s the first time

To the Man who taught me about real love

How do I start this post without getting teary-eyed? Kinda hard so I will just let it flow. When I talk about my parents, my feelings overflow like a dam full of water. I know we should not question God but I end up however. I ask Him, “Who am I and what I have done to deserve such lovely parents?”. As I grow older and every time I come home during the weekends I find out more and more about the answers. God gave them to me because He knew I can’t survive without them. He knew exactly that Dad and Mom would be the perfect parents who will guide me in this challenge called life. I may have failed you at times because I have this motto of “following my hearts desire” but you always understood 🙂 God gave me both of you so I can grow, inspire and affect people in a positive way.

Daddy, thank you for always treating me as mermaid and for teaching me how to swim. You see, it’s more than that. I can’t imagine all the moments I am connected with the earth by just floating into the water. At times with eyes closed and more often with the stars above the sky. You maybe man of few words when it comes to serious talks but you were so right when you said “Anak, kung kayo talaga, magkakabalikan kayo. Kung hindi, hindi talaga”. I cried endlessly when I heard them from you, somewhat it killed me but those words were raw and pure. I know you don’t want me to feel the hurt and you want to put a band aid on my bleeding heart but still you told me the truth. You were the one who explained it all, ‘that true love fights and at times it will hurt’ .

Please, do not worry so much about me if I’m 28 and still single. That recent line that you dropped on my birthday week “Aba Anak, mag asawa ka, mahirap ang walang kasama sa buhay pagtanda”, made me laugh. I know you want the best for me but time will unfold itself. I want a marriage like mom and yours. Were things can be made calm even under a stormy weather. You will walk me down the aisle… When the time is right.

Thank you Daddy for being the greatest. May God bless you with healthy years ahead. I have so much memories with you stored in this heart of mine. All of them were colorful like the rainbow. We love you so. I love you so. I will always be your beautiful little mermaid. Happy Birthday 🙂

He

He was the one who told me that my eyes were lovely yet didn’t seem to care when I was crying
He was the one who stood by me holding the umbrella but did not enjoy the rain drops
He was the one who made me smile during mornings and made me frown before the day ends
He was worth everything until he proved I am wrong

Most importantly…

He was the one who told me not to give up on us and at the same time taught me when to let go,

So I did.
