of love notes, love letters and sentiments…

i was cleaning my drawer and in all of a sudden, memories led me back to yesterday. i saw letters, small notes and pictures that i kept, yes, i know i am a melancholic at times, however sometimes it’s also nice remembering the past.

I first received a love letter when I was in third year high school. It’s not a surprise for me because the letter came from one of my closest guy friends (do I have to say his name? hehe!), Itwas not surprising because guys fall easily just like girls. I mean, just show some sweetness and he will think that you like him (but not all guys okay! Just some). So that’s what happened, he fell for me. He used a pen and a piece of paper to tell me that “Hindi ko alam, pero gusto talaga kita!” (haba ng hair diba). Yun nga lang I was still young then kaya siyempre I answered “Bata pa ako eh, magagalit nanay ko!” Ayan so we ended as friends gang ngayon, but I know masama pa rin loob niya but that’s life. So when I graduated highschool, nagka jowa ako, pero hindi siya, someone older than me at ka-brod pa nung unang nanligaw. Since he was older, siya lagi nagiinitiate like dates, our monthsary, annive celeb, etc. one thing I really appreciate about this guy is that dahil long distance relationship kami he makes it to a point na every month or twice a month nagsusulat siya. Imagine may cellphone na’t lahat-lahat he still writes to me. And that was our scenario for three years. Kaya ang dami kong sulat from him, napuno ata yung isang box ng shoes ko. Nwei, after collecting [a trash] I mean love letters, napunta din iyon eventually sa basura because my next bf was so possessive. Eh ayaw niya ng bakas ng isa man sa mga sulat na iyon.

On the other hand, mahilig din magsulat at magcompose ng song itong ex jowa jowahan ko. He made songs for me at na appreciate ko iyon. He was a vocalist ng isang banda.Nwei, marami pang nagbigay ng notes and letters sa akin, yung iba manliligaw yung iba friends at yung iba nagging jowa jowahan. I am really a senti person kaya ito nakatago parin.

I really love keeping these notes, letters and pictures. Nakakatuwa lang talaga silang basahin. Here are some of my favorite lines:

“I can remember the time when I spilled the cup of apple juice in the hall but you told me it’s not my fault. And now, I’m slightly bruised and broken from the collision of your kiss and I appreciate that because you made me feel pain again, for I was paralyzed and could not feel anything before.”

“This world is too much for me to take. So can I lay down and follow you? I’ll be everything you need in every way. Just tell me what you want, because I will give you everything.”

“I haven’t been this scared in a long time and im so unprepared. So here’s your valentine: bouquet of CLUMSY words with a simple melody. This world’s an ugly place (trust me!) but you’re so beautiful to me.”

“How does a butterfly live? How does a buttefly become a butterfly? How does a butterfly just float around without knowing that it has so many admirers? How does a butterfly not know how beautiful she is? How does a butterfly not know she is a butterfly? How does one catch a butterfly? How does a butterfly respond? I know you will never understand. There are so many nets floating around trying to catch a butterfly. My butterfly, be careful. In a world full of nets, there is an open hand just waiting to take care of you and is always willing to care. My butterfly, float gently into the world.”

“Just like an unfinished image we begin to see the picture, but we fail to understand the whole message. There were so many things to be said that were never said and some things that needed explanation that could not be explained. Sometimes its up to faith to finish the whole picture.”

“I thought I would not have the chance to tell you how much you mean to me. I was very glad that I was given the chance to show you that I love you. I don’t know how this came to me, but it just happen. All I know is I’ve treasured the moments with you.”

Grabe when I was reading all of these kinikilig pa rin talaga ako. Nwei, so here’s some of the small notes na nakalkal ko.

Sa kabilang banda, I also kept the charcoal drawing of my best bud in college (tnx bert for this). I was so touched when he gave me this drawing. Alam ko nagddrawing siya pero I didn’t expect na he will make one like this.

And to end this, here’s a pix of our batch in college Mass Comm Sais! I miss them all kaya nilagay ko na din sila dito. Hope to see you sometime soon… sa malayang panahon!

huwag maging bitter, life can be sweet at better!

Sometimes, you don’t have to hate someone for hurting you…

and it’s not proper to be bitter either.

and the truth is, it’s really a common mistake among us individuals…

for we live with our expectations.

we oblige others to love us back…

for in the first place, we don’t have the right.

IT REALLY HURTS WHEN IT SOUNDS SO RIGHT…

but that’s life after all!

ACCEPTANCE.

and most of all…

RESPECT.

Happy weekend everyone!

don’t take yourself so seriously (aba, maghunos dili ka dong)

One of the facts of life is that we will always have problems…83 to be exact. We might solve some of them and others will just stay with us constantly.

The thing with problems is that it creates all kinds of other side effects like stress, worry, depression and generally an unhappy life. The 84th problem we all have is that we think if we can just get these problems out of the way, we will be happier. We reason that it is these external things that are stopping us from having a fulfilling life.

The truth is, however, that some of our problems might go away and some will stay with us. Those that go away or get solved then just get replaced by other problems. Now that’s the thinking flaw…the 84th problem. The moment you think that you shouldn’t have problems or that you can only be fulfilled and happy when your problems go away, you will forever and ever be unhappy and unfulfilled. The reason is, like I have mentioned, that we will always, for ever and ever, have problems. The moment we accept this, we can let go of the grip it’s having on us. So how do we do that?

There is one sure way to solve any problem. Just get yourself a bigger problem. It’s true. Ok, you didn’t really solve the initial problem but the significance of it disappeared. The point I am trying to make is not to deliberately burden yourself with bigger and bigger problems, but that even if problems still exist in your life, they can shrink in significance and the moment that happen, it loses its negative grip on you.

Does this mean that you shouldn’t solve your problems? Definitely not. But if you are in a constant state of stress and worry you are in the worst possible space to solve them. People from the outside usually have a much clearer perspective on one’s problems than we have. It is because we are usually so paralysed by them and because of that, we struggle to think with a clear and objective mind about them.

The key is first of all to accept that it is there. To really accept it and not to resist it. Most people resist their life situations. It doesn’t matter how bad your problems are, the fact of the matter is that it is there. So except the “is”-ness of the situation. Don’t resist it. Don’t take it so seriously. This resistance is easy to recognise if you just take time to become aware of it.

ang MANSANAS bow!

Take a look at an apple tree. There might be five hundred apples on the Tree, each with ten seeds. That’s a lot of seeds!

We might ask, “Why would you need so many seeds to grow just a few more Trees?”

Nature has something to teach us here. It’s telling us: “Most seeds never Grow. So if you really want to make something happen, you better try More than once.”

This might mean:

You’ll attend twenty interviews to get one job.

You’ll interview forty people to find one good employee.

You’ll talk to fifty people to sell one house, car, vacuum Cleaner, insurance policy, idea…

And you might meet a hundred acquaintances to find one special friend.

When we understand the “Law of the Seed”, we don’t get so disappointed.

We stop feeling like victims. Laws of nature are not things to take personally.

We just need to understand them – and work with them.

“If you feel and think that you are sexy and beautiful… then you are!”

Ayan ang sinabi sa akin ng aking beloved roomate last night nang sinabi ko na nagggym na uli ako. Ewan ko ba gusto ko lang uli matapos ko mapanuod yung Rated K (on abs-cbn) nung isang araw dahil ang topic eh about sa mataba at payat. Wel, honestly natakot lang ako. Hindi ako actually conscious sa itsura ko dahil sa totoo lang secure ako na may iibig sa akin (ay ambisyosa) pero narealize ko kelangan ko gawin yun dahil para narin sa aking kalusugan.

Natakot naman daw ako na baka isang araw tinatakbo nalang ako sa hospital dahil sa highblood o diabetis. Mas mabuti na yung umiwas.

Alam ko mataba ako pero nasa nagdadala lang yan (ayan kafilingan na naman hehe!). Pero yun na nga siguro mas masarap parin ang feeling pag mejo healthy living. Kaya ngayon iwas muna sa junkfoods (weakness ko ito eh) at kung ano ano pang unhealthy foods.

Wel, ito mga ilang tips para maging Feeling wow at looking wow (Fitrum ba ito???) mejo mahriap gawin pero go for the Gold na ito (olympics ba..) hehe!!!
