No regrets, just love

When I think of it now, I smile. How I loved and was loved in return. But then some love were not really ours in the first place. God just lent it to us and after some time, we have to return it back. Return it with a hopeful heart that next time, He will give that ‘one, last, true love’. For a long time, I never thought about my past relationships. I realized I have not thanked them enough for teaching me how to love in all ways possible and for them loving me back until the end.

To my first love, thank you for opening up my heart. Those long phone conversations won’t be forgotten. The nights when I was literally staring at the ceiling and smiling the whole time. Funny love letters, cross stitches and stuff.

To my second love, thank you for writing “I love you” a million times. That small handwriting of yours and numerous white pages all filled with the same three words. I know how much you didn’t want to give us up.

To my third love, thank you, thank you, thank you for the blueberry muffins. I know baking them is hard but you still managed to bring me lots when you visit. Thank you for always reminding me that my smile is perfect. Though the blog you created for me (astersmiles) no longer exist, it won’t be forgotten. Continue playing the guitar like you used to.

To my fourth love, awww… you were… a lot of things. Thank you for making me laugh so hard every time when we’re together. For looking straight into my eyes and telling me how pretty and lovely I look. You always say those three words first, morning, lunch, afternoon, dinner, you never failed. I know how much you hate it when we fight and let the sun go down without doing anything. You and I were so real when we’re together.

To my fifth love, thank you, for letting me go and I am sorry for hurting you big time. My sorry’s will never be enough but I still want to say it. I saw the silver painted star fish I gave you the other day and I thought, like that pretty lil’ thing, the love you have given me will always be special. Countless coffee shops, travels and pictures. Yes, I may be the lady who can create thousands of emotions in photos, but that wouldn’t change the fact I broke your heart, again I am deeply sorry. Soon you will forget me.

To my sixth, thank you, it was short but memorable. Some things are just not meant to be no matter how badly we want it. Wanting was never enough.

To my seventh, I know you are out there… maybe you were just stuck in traffic and your car won’t move for months, years, a century? Haha! Or you are busy cliff diving, or cooking, or taking photos or whatever! Don’t worry, will wait patiently 🙂 Great things come to those who wait and pray silently. Meanwhile, I will be busy making myself better so when you come, You and l will have a happy life ahead. As they say, 7 is the number of perfection.

To all those love, that didn’t last, do not fret, it’s not meant to be and being alone for sometime is part of the plan. Just keep holding to faith and love. ♥

Thank you WordPress!

There are a lot of things I want to be thankful about. This time, I want to say how happy I am that I started blogging using WordPress. I have never felt so d*mn happy in my entire life. I know that I am not an experienced blogger and it takes a whole lot of courage and time to share the things I have in mind. 100% sure that I only have a few followers but it does not matter, blogging has never been this fun before, although no one gets to read all my posts, I feel excited when a person just hit the “like” button. As they say, THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE, Yes! WordPress + Blogging is one of them until the day I decide to buy a premium account (maybe if I have 10,000 followers, lol, just kidding). Sharing has never been this fun, plus I get to read and travel using a computer. Don’t you just love it when you get to see real pictures with real stories in them? Come on! Don’t be silly, I found it similar to time traveling. I get to see places I want to visit since I know I may not get to travel so far (can someone send me to Europe for free please?). This is a place where your race and color of skin does not matter. I do not find any hate in this place, everyone and every word is full of encouragement and positive ideas. These are the things that make the world go round. Technology can be used in a positive way and making international online friends is really amazing.

In the end of it all, having a WordPress account is such a blessing, it takes away my worries when I write (though I am not a writer, just a wanna be). Thank you Lord for the blogging experience, may I continue to grow until I become a famous blogger! ***wink wink wink***


Photowords: Three phrases that changed my life

Words are very powerful. I believe that they are life changing and it affects each and everyone of us. So far in my past 26 years of existence, I have spoken these words  straight from my heart:

1. Thank you
This is the easiest phrase that we can say. May it be with the manong driver that we constantly meet every time we ride a trike, a fx, a bus or whatever transportation it may be. They needed to hear that someone is actually thankful that they are there so we can travel from one place to another. Without drivers, imagine how life would be.

2. You’re welcome
This should be automatic once someone said “Thank you” to you. I find it amusing how people actually smile once I say this phrase, it’s like they have never heard it before. Or maybe I use it too many times but I do not care, as long as someone said “thank you”, “you’re welcome” will follow. It just shows how sincere you are for what you have done for the other person.

3. I’m sorry

Is a word not used by PRIDE driven people. It takes gut to say “sorry ” to a person specially if you feel that they are the wrong doers. Consequently, I have learned to let go of my pride, I look at the angles of life in different ways now. In my perspective, eating my pride most of the time is the best solution. And once you have mastered it, “I’m sorry” will be next in line.

We all have our favorite words and phrases, but please take time and consider what I have shared and I hope soon, it will be your favorites too!
